I really enjoy this video on water and the five elements:
Sadhguru explains how water has a memory and since we are 72% water, we are greatly affected by that karma. Fire, Earth, Wind and Akash (Space) are the other four elements. It is important to cleanse all the elements and not just water. I really like what he says, but I have a hard time with the discipline to do all of them. Or at least all of them at once. Maybe I need to focus on each one individually. I did buy copper cups, but I think I need a copper pitcher or larger vessel. In the mountains of New Hampshire this week, I ran and did other activities that got my breath up to make sure that I am getting enough air in my lungs.
I guess it is little steps like this for me as opposed to a flash moment of realization. Like a frog in a pot with the temperature rising, I am not aware that I am being cooked. 🙂 I still expect this moment of realization though. And that might be want prevents it. I have to take a step back and tell myself that this is the process. A question on a thought or movement that is not part of the thought or movement is hesitation and takes things out of the moment. It can be recovered since that is also part of the movement, since really nothing can be separate from the movement.
I do fell pain in my body that I can’t seem to release. At the resort where I was staying, there was a massage therapist that also does reiki . I have read a bit about this and it felt like this is the alignment of energy. It said that no karma was involved since it is just clearing the blockages and just allowing energy to flow. There is no exchange of karma.
I called and made an appointment. After the call, I started having second thoughts. I did a search on Sadhguru reiki and I found the video bellow where he says to avoid reiki because it is just the tip of the iceberg and it masks the root. He also said that there is the potential for entanglement, which I assume he means quantum entanglement of particles since reiki involves energy work which seems like it could have the potential to entangle particles. Since the particles are entangled, it seems reasonable to believe that karma of the particles is also entangled. By that, the reiki practitioner has possibly been entangled with a large number of people. Then to possibly entangle with her…. I canceled the appointment. If SG wasn’t so adamantly against it, I would have went for it, but his points made me pause.
I still need some way to address the pain and get to the root. I feel the pain is psychological since doctors are not seeing an issue. While searching today, I saw that Sadhguru does have a number of videos on cleansing the elements. I may start there. SG says that with the purity of the five elements you will be able to distinguish what is physiological, psychological and existential. It isn’t as quick as potentially a reiki session, but it feels like a better approach. I guess there are no shortcuts, or you have to believe in them so that they are not the shortcut, they are the way.
Isha also has a channel
