I have been studying Latin and ballroom dancing for the past two years, and I see this correlation between the two dancing partners with left and right brain activities. In all ballroom forms of dancing, the male is the lead and the female follows. The responsibility of the male lead is to decide the sequence of steps and patterns for the dance between the two. These activities are very much left brain functions. The female is to be intuitive in following the motions directed by her partner, and become spatially aware of her partner’s body to hers. These activities are very much right brain functions.
When I dance as the follower, I feel that I do the best when I shut off my left brain and use predominately my right brain. This can be achieved by the feeling of letting go of control, feeling relaxed, and breathing deeply. The right side of the brain is where we meditate. When we get to the feeling of meditation, then we can also dance the part of the follower when ballroom or Latin dancing.
Our right brain focuses on the intuitive, imagination, motion, as this side of the brain creates art, music, and dance. It also is the side of the brain for meditation and spiritual practice. When we are able to let go of control, feel relaxed, and breath deeply then we have achieved this meditative state in our spiritual work. Try this to see if you can turn on the right side of your brain. Infinite love and light, Brooke (Copyright 2014 Kundalini Spiriti with All Rights Reserved)
During a recent conversation with a former colleague and friend, we talked about the life lessons we learned while both working for the same employer and why we were brought there. I explained to her that throughout my life, I appear to attract similar supervisors and employment environments. These environments reminded me of my childhood home, frequently emotionally chaotic and unstable. As an adult, I ran from one employer to another, but I appear to attract the same situations and people no matter where or how far I ran.
I explained to my friend that I began to realize this recently about my life, and my lesson this time around is to learn how to deal with these chaotic and unstable emotional situations. I believe that I ran from these circumstances because they remind me of my childhood home life that frightens me. However, as an adult, I have the means to protect myself, and make different choices. As I was unable to cope with this as a child and as an adult, I used the same coping mechanism of avoidance and escape as I essentially did as a child although I used dissociation, a psychological term that means mentally leaving my body so I could avoid feeling pain and trauma.
Now, as an adult, I realize that my life has been so limited. I am essentially living a life of a phobic person. People with phobias avoid their phobias or fears. For example, if one is phobic to confined space, they would avoid working or living in a building with an elevator. They would avoid all activities requiring confined or enclosed spaces, etc. Those with phobias who have not overcome their phobias live a very limiting life full of avoidance and fear in dealing with their reality.
I realize that for my life now, I need to overcome my own phobias that is to learn to deal with people who remind me of my parents. In order to do this, I must overcome my fears by healing my emotional trauma so that I no longer react to these people. I earlier posted an article on “How to Achieve Non-Reaction.” I believe this can be accomplished through Emotional Release Practice, and Ego Observing Practice, both can be found on these tabs on my Blogsite Homepage.
This realization has given me motivation to stay on course to overcome my past and to heal my emotional trauma, so I no longer need to use avoidance and escape as ways of coping with my life now. May you find your path to healing, Brooke (Copyright 2014 Kundalini Spirit with All Rights Reserved)

With pride and joy, I think of you,
How far you have come!
Everyday, closer to your destiny,
Of healing, peace, and love.
You inspire me to do the same,
Moving ever forward,
Toward the kingdom of heaven.
Through Divine purpose,
I lift my spirit even in melancholy moments,
When my burden is heavy,
And my heart despairs.
You are there beside me,
To give me hope for another day. ~ Brooke

Since today is Easter, the rebirth or reincarnation of Jesus Christ after his crucifixion and death, it is appropriate to talk about our own rebirth to a new life. I want to share my observing about how karma works for those who are Kundalini active, and the possibility of changing our own karma for rebirth to a new life.
Since becoming aware of Kundalini after my own Kundalini energy rose, I have observed a correlation between the behaviors of those who are Kundalini active and karma. On more than one occasion, I have observed the behaviors of Kundalini active individuals who use their Kundalini abilities to manipulate others for their own gain, use their Kundalini gifts to to control others, or use their Kundalini powers to hurt others, and there appears to be a swift reaction. As you may be aware, karma is when we cause an action which then results in a force of the opposite and equal reaction. This is also known as Newton’s Third Law of Motion.
Once we understand how Karma works, then we will understand why certain events occur in our lives. Many have difficulties realizing this concept as they will attribute certain events in their lives to something or someone else, such as others who wrong them, some external force, or other explanations that are external. Our egos do this in order to cope with preserving of the smaller selves, so we don’t need to change our smaller selves, but we want others to change in order to preserve our own smaller selves. We do this all the time, when we blame others for our problems in our lives. Our egos can even convince us that we are really helping others by our hurtful behaviors.
This is particularly true of Kundalini active individuals as we are given this precious gift of Kundalini, but when we have not released our egos or due to Spiritual Bypass, we may use our abilities for self gain, control, or power. I have observed those who have done just this, and within just a few weeks or months, they become very ill, lose opportunities to earn a living, or experience a series of negative events in their lives. I believe that Kundalini energy intensified our experiences including karma, so what may take others many years or lifetimes for karma to manifest, it happens swiftly and immediately for those with Kundalini.
Therefore, this time instead of finding some external excuse or reason for our negative experiences, we take this opportunity to look inward, and see the truth about ourselves, this is a great time for growth and change to be reborn to a new life. One that Jesus had lived, and continues to live in many of our hearts. Happy Easter! Sending blessings and love, Brooke (Copyright 2014 Kundalini Spirit with All Rights Reserved)
