Generally teaching goes well when you are feeling centered. Yantras are visual tools used to shift your energy in a positive direction. Well, that raises the question, what do I do if I wake up feeling lousy or lusterless and have a class to teach in the next couple of hours?
One uplifting tool to have in your midst could be a Yantra. Spending a few minutes with the chosen sacred geometric form can bring some brightness, sparkle and direction to your mood and your day. The effect is that of plugging into the cosmic currents, of tuning your transistor radio to the ‘right’ channel and finding your sweet centered voice within.
Before heading to your spot at the front of the classroom, take a few moments to align with the divine. This is a visual form of meditation. Focus on the bindu, the dot, at the center of your Yantra. Connect with your very best self, the part of you that is divine and unchanging. You can draw and color your Yantra, to awaken this vibrancy within, or you can focus your gaze upon her form while reciting her name.
Adorn yourself. This is an outer and inner practice. Remember both. Take time to choose clothes that feel appropriate to the day, jewels or cleanliness routines that make you sparkle. Take time to feel you are attuned to the cosmic rays emitted from your chosen Yantra.
I can assure you, the class will be a richer experience for both you, and your students.
Depicted is the Sun Yantra. The Sun’s light invokes the light within you, and the light within all beings. It speaks of your radiance, your courage and your vibrant vitality. The Sun is global in its reach, is inclusive and integrating in its warmth. Universal intelligence is yours to behold.
Each Yantra contains a positive element to focus on. You can choose other Yantras to meditate with before your classes when you need extra amps to feel centered and strong, at the Yantra page on yantrabliss.com or in my book “Nine Designs For Inner Peace”.
