Aspirations and Connection | Sahasrara Chakra

We know from within, what is the truth of the matter…

We make decisions every day of our lives, and we know when it is honest, and of “right action”. We also know when it is not, and when we are making a bad decision. The answers come from within. When we give ourselves time to step onto the mat, those answers become easier to see and understand and we know that the actions we are taking are right action. For the time on our mat is practice time for the real world. We learn who we are on the mat, our strengths and weaknesses are there for us to see and each time we practice it helps us grow and learn about who we are. The challenges and how to grow with them and learn about ourselves, our shadows and our light.
Stepping onto the mat…

I grow stronger by tuning into divine Light” – Yoga Teacher Central

Physical Associations

Physical areas of association include the following.

  • Pituitary gland
    • The pituitary gland is a small, bean shaped gland situated at the base of your brain, somewhat behind your nose and between your ears. Despite its small size, the gland influences nearly every part of your body. The hormones it produces help regulate important functions, such as growth, blood pressure and reproduction.
  • Cerebral cortex
    • The cerebral cortex is a sheet of neural tissue that is outermost to the cerebrum of the mammalian brain. It has up to six layers of nerve cells. It is covered by the meninges and often referred to as gray matter. … Between 14 billion and 16 billion neurons are found in the cerebral cortex.
  • Central nervous system
    • Is made up of the brain and spinal cord – the body’s processing centre.
  • Tanmatra – prakriti (primordial energy)
    • Tanmatra is a noun which means – rudimentary or subtle element, merely that, mere essence, potential or only a trifle. There are five sense perceptions – hearing, touch, sight, taste and smell, and there are the five tanmatras corresponding to the five sense perceptions and five sense-organs. The tanmatras combine and re-combine in different ways to produce the gross elements – earth, water, fire, air and ether, which make up the gross universe perceived by the senses. The senses play their part by coming into contact with the objects and carry impressions of them to the manas which receives and arranges them into a precept.

You have to grow from the inside out.  None can teach you.  None can make you spiritual.  There is no other teacher, but your own soul.
