Meditating for 40 and getting married in 30 – Wanna join?

Meditation

By: Keya Nkonoki / May 9, 2013

If you are brand new to meditation, it is best to start small and slowly increase your times as you are ready.

Many of you know that I am getting married in 30 days on June 8th. (Yes there is a lot going on in my household lol!)

In addition to our wedding planning, Randy and I have decided to do a 40+ day meditation together starting TODAY (May 9th, 2013) with the New Moon and going through the HARVEST MOON (June 23rd 2013) right into Summer Solstice.  This feels like a great way to start off our union!  We announced this in yoga class last Sunday and a few of you were interested in joining us.  You can go to the links below to join our facebook group where we can keep each other inspired by posting our goals, progress and challenges.  If you are not on Facebook, use the email address below to share your experiences with the entire group.

You can use any meditation from any system as your 40 day meditation as long as it resonates with you.  Choose to do 11 minutes (affects your nervous system), 31 minutes (affects your organs) or 62 minutes (begins to reprogram the subconscious mind).  If you are brand new to meditation, it is best to start small and slowly increase your times as you are ready.  For best results, commit to doing the meditation around the same time every day – of course if things come up, you just get it in where you can.  :-)

It is also quite helpful to choose a meditation partner or partners to practice with you – either in person (or over the phone).  You can use our private group facebook page to search for a partner if no one comes to mind.  Having a partner gives you accountability and also gives you grace.  If you and your partners are practicing together faithfully for 20 days or so, and some major (or minor) conflict arises where you are not able to practice, your partner can hold space for you… and you for them.  Of course, you don’t want to get in the habit of missing days throughout this process, because that would cheat you of the powerful shifts in habitual patterns that come from committing to anything good for 40 days.

If you just want to get your feet wet a little bit, then start with doing just 9 days on your own.  Then once you complete that, add another 9 days and keep adding little by little until you make it to 40 days.  Don’t commit to doing it with a partner until you are truly on board with the highs and lows of the process.

Here are a few tools we used to help us select our meditation: http://www.3ho.org/tantric-numerology-reading  The suggested yoga sets and meditations can be easily found online by doing a google search.  If you have never practiced kundalini yoga, be sure to contact me or a certified kundalini yoga teacher in your area to set up a private session (in person or over skype) to be sure you are practicing your kundalini yoga kriya correctly.   For even more understanding of the ten bodies discussed in your tantric numerology report, go to this informative site:  http://www.thesecretsofyoga.com/yoga-articles/the-10-bodies.html

As a part of my personal sadhana (morning practice), I am currently practicing Wahe Guru Kriya [recommended in my tantric numerology report and my intuition 🙂 ].  As a couple, Randy and I are practicing Sodarchan Chakra Kriya along with Qi-gong exercises.

I hurried into the local department store to grab1 some last minute Chirsmas gifts. I Cisco 300-320 VCE looked at all the people and grumbled2 to myself. 1Z0-061 Questions And Answers PDF I would be in here forever Cisco 300-320 VCE and I just had so much to do. Chirsmas was 1Z0-144 test beginning to become such a drag. I kinda Examprepwell wished that I could just sleep through Chirsmas. But I hurried the best 1Z0-061 Questions And Answers PDF I could through 1Z0-061 Questions And Answers PDF all the people Cisco 300-320 VCE to the toy department. Once again I kind of mumbled3 to myself at the prices of all these 1Z0-144 test toys, and Cisco 300-320 VCE wondered if the grandkids would even play whit4 them. I found myself in Examprepwell the doll aisle5. Cisco 300-320 VCE Out of the corner of my eye I saw a little boy about 5 holding a Examprepwell lovely doll.He kept touching6 her hair and he held her so gently. I could not seem to help myself. I just 1Z0-061 Questions And Answers PDF kept loking over at the little boy and wondered who the doll was for. I watched him turn 1Z0-061 Questions And Answers PDF to a Microsoft 70-532 PDF woman and he called 1Z0-061 Questions And Answers PDF Learningpdf his aunt by name and said, “Are 1Z0-061 Questions And Answers PDF you sure I don’t have enough Learningpdf money?” She replied a bit impatiently, “You know that you don’t have enough money for it.” The aunt told the little boy not to go anywhere that she had to go and get some other things and Learningpdf would be back 1Z0-144 test in a few minutes. And then she Microsoft 70-532 PDF left the aisle. The boy continued to hold the doll. After a bit 1Z0-061 Questions And Answers PDF I asked the boy who 1Z0-061 Questions And Answers PDF the doll was for. He said, “It is the doll my sister wanted so badly for Chirsmas. She 1Z0-144 test just knew that Santa would bring it. Cisco 300-320 VCE “I told him that maybe Examprepwell Santa was Learningpdf going 1Z0-144 test Examprepwell to bring it . 1Z0-144 test He said, “No, Santa can’t go where my Microsoft 70-532 PDF sister is…. I have to 1Z0-144 test give the doll to my Mama to take to her. “I asked him where his siter was. He looked at me with the saddest eyes and said, “She was gone to be with Jesus.

My Daddy says that Mamma is going to have to go Cisco 300-320 VCE be with her.” My heart nearly stopped Cisco 300-320 VCE Examprepwell beating. Then the boy looked Microsoft 70-532 PDF at Microsoft 70-532 PDF me again and said, “I told my Daddy to tell my Mama not to go yet. 1Z0-144 test I Cisco 300-320 VCE told him to tell her to wait Learningpdf till I Examprepwell got Learningpdf back from the store.” Then he asked me if i wanted to see Cisco 300-320 VCE his picture. I told him I’d love 1Z0-144 test to. He pulled out some Microsoft 70-532 PDF picture he’d had taken at the front of the Examprepwell store. He said, “I want my Mama to take this with her so the dosen’t ever forget me. I love my Mama so very much and I wish she dind not have to leave me.But Daddy says she Examprepwell will need to be with my sister.” I Learningpdf saw that the little boy had Learningpdf lowered Microsoft 70-532 PDF his head and had grown so Microsoft 70-532 PDF qiuet. While he was not looking I reached Microsoft 70-532 PDF into my purse and pilled out a handful of bills. I asked the little boy, “Shall we count that miney one Microsoft 70-532 PDF more time?” He grew excited and said, 1Z0-061 Questions And Answers PDF “Yes,I just know it has to be enough.” So I slipped my money Cisco 300-320 VCE Examprepwell in 1Z0-144 test with Cisco 300-320 VCE 1Z0-144 test his and we began to count it . Of course it was plenty Learningpdf Learningpdf for the doll. Learningpdf He softly said, “Thank you Jesus Learningpdf for giving me enough Examprepwell money.” Then the boy said, “I 1Z0-061 Questions And Answers PDF just asked Jesus to give me enough money to buy this doll so Mama can 1Z0-061 Questions And Answers PDF take it with her to Examprepwell give my sister.

Learningpdf I could not Learningpdf keep from thinking about 1Z0-144 test the little 1Z0-144 test Examprepwell boy Cisco 300-320 VCE as I finished my 1Z0-144 test shoppong in a ttally different spirit than when I had started. And Microsoft 70-532 PDF I kept remembering 1Z0-144 test a story I had seen in the newspaper several days earlier about a Examprepwell drunk driver hitting a 1Z0-061 Questions And Answers PDF car and killing7 a little girl and the Microsoft 70-532 PDF Mother was in serious condition.
