Blissful Yoga Nidra

  
Yoga Nidra is my absolute favorite part of yoga.  It’s the one of few times that I feel like I’m having an out-of-body experience.  I don’t feel my physical form, only my spirit soaring above me.  It’s quite a sweet feeling!

You might be asking: what is Yoga Nidra?  It’s a state of consciousness between being awake and sleeping.  It is also said to be the deepest state of relaxation.  Yoga Nidra is done while in corpse pose–simply laying flat on your back with arms and legs spread apart.   

For me, it’s also a bit of a spiritual exploration. I remember the first time I did a Yoga Nidra in class, I was amazed that I wasn’t thinking any thoughts whatsoever because my brain is always running.  I felt like I was dreaming, yet fully aware of what’s going on around me.  It felt good to feel so relaxed without a single care in the world for a bit.  When I awoke from this state, my spirit felt revived and rejuvenated.  And even my mind was still..  Amazing!

Here’s a video that takes me to that state of being…and even takes me to Sleepyland.

Enjoy!

Love & Light,

  

You Don’t Have to Go to Church to Connect With God

  
I’m a believer, but I don’t go to church.  I’ve tried to…it’s just not my thing.  And, I’m not knocking on anyone that does attend church.  I’ve discovered my own ways to connect to God: meditation, yoga, taking a drive through the mountains, and listening to music.  Every now and then, I’ll get one of those God winks that you just know that it came from a Higher place.  You can read about one of those experiences in my Spirit in the Sky post.  That’s how I know that God loves me.

You may ask: how do I know that I’m connected to God?  Do you ever feel that warm, giddy, elated feeling in your heart?  Whether it’s from reading an inspiring book that just speaks to you or looking at the stars & planets in the sky or even going fishing.  Anything that fills your heart with pure love and joy comes straight from God.  I get that high feeling from listening to music, my main love since birth.  

Here’s some that make me feel connected to God every time I hear them: 

Love & Light,
