Could Yoga Nidra help you to tap into your full potential?
Are you mining your full capability in life? How can you know what you are fully capable of? Where do you even start when it comes to defining your own potential?
To know what you are fully capable of requires you to go beyond the mind, to experience your whole self. Yoga Nidra is a practice designed to do just this.
Yoga Nidra, a form of guided meditation, translates as Yogic Sleep.
It’s called Yogic Sleep because the practice piggy-backs the body’s own mechanism for going to sleep. As you fall asleep, you naturally distance yourself from your thoughts; your brain becomes less active, until you eventually drop off to sleep.
In Yoga Nidra, you are led through a series of techniques to reduce your brain wave activity, harnessing the body’s ”falling asleep” process – going from beta and gamma brainwave states into alpha, theta and hopefully delta brainwave states – but instead of going to sleep, you remain conscious.
An Ocean of Energy
In the form of Yoga Nidra that I teach, the techiques used are designed to connect you with your own subconscious energy field.
Yes, you are a physical body. Yes, you are your thoughts. Yes, you are also an energetic presence.
The ancient yogis described the human condition as “the wave that has forgotten it is part of the Ocean”. The Ocean refers to an ocean of energy.
The practice of Yoga Nidra is designed to enable you to experience the wholeness or totality of who you are.
This state of wholeness is what Leonardo da Vinci was referring to when he said: “Where the spirit does not work with the hand, there is no art” and what Albert Einstein was referring to with his quote “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them”.
From this place of wholeness, you can truly start to tap into your full potential.
You have been brought up to believe you are this human body, autonomous from the people and the world around you. But you are so much more than that.
