Kuwait: Invitation to IDY 2021 Celebrations 21st June - Raja Yoga Meditation

19 June 2021

I am sending you all a big Om Shanti (greetings of peace) as we look forward to the International Day of Yoga on 21st June, 2021.


Yoga and meditation have many principles in common. Yoga, tends to deal with exercises that stretch and strengthen the body, and meditation focuses more on the spiritual aspects of life, and strengthening the soul. For each modality to be successful, one has to learn how to control the mind.


Taking the Breath

We talk about the breath of life… and yes, this works on a physical level… without breathing there is no life! But what is the breath of mind? At a spiritual level the breath of mind relates to the quality of our thoughts and therefore our experience of life. Inhale positive and powerful energy, and breathe in love and peace. As we generate those higher vibrational thoughts, then we are more easily able to exhale and expel those negative and stressful thoughts and emotions. We definitely don’t want those toxins to linger in our body or mind in any form.

Ramadan Special: Join the 4AM PEACE EXPERIENCE Hosted by It's Time...

8 April 2021


The benefits of 4am meditation are endless, and the practice is not as difficult as some may think. Yet some people’s immediate response when asked to try out this daily practice is one of shock and panic, especially those who go to bed at this hour! In response, I would say, try it and give it a chance. Don’t look to see what you are losing, but look to see what you are gaining!
