Kundalini Gems & Self Transformation

Kundalini Gems & Self Transformation

When I went into the Kundalini Teacher Training in September 2016 I knew in my heart and soul that it was something that I had to do for ME.  I knew that I would learn a lot about my body, energy and the transformational science that is Kundalini.  But I had no clue that it would bring such transformation to my life.  On several occasions I personally witnessed matter change before my eyes, a shifting of energy that was undeniable, and healings take place within myself and others.  There was a lot of crying, a lot of dancing, a lot of meditating, a lot of downloads, and a lot of transformation that happened this past year. I’ve never experienced anything like it in my life.

Here are some of the awesome and life changing takeaways that I learned and experienced

Sat Nam,

Ro

  1. Self Diagnosis & Holistic Remedies – Through completing a Metabolic Assessment form I was able to decipher that my blood sugar was off, which was leading to sugar cravings and unhealthy afternoon snacking.  From there I found that apple cider vinegar is a natural way of dealing with sugar cravings and I now take a shot of it every morning.
  2. Meditation with a Purpose – I learned that there is a meditation for just about anything and everything you could imagine.  Kundalini meditation is meditation with purpose.  Some of my favorites were Eliminating Haunting Thoughts, Medical Meditation for Habituation which eliminates destructive habits, Kirtan Kriya is excellent for manifesting (it’s what I used to manifest my TEDx Talk in less than a two week period with NO application submitted to TEDx!  Watch the talk here!), Sitalee Kriya for cooling down a heated situation as well as cooling down your body temperature, The Inner Sun immune system booster, and I know there are many more but that’s just a dabble of my favs.
  3. Mudras, Planets and Energy – Each finger represents a planet in our solar system (the Universe is within you) and each of these fingers when touching the thumb produce a certain effect within the body due to a shift in energy flow and reflexes to the brain.  Thumb to index, Gyan Mudra, stimulates knowledge and the power to compute.  Thumb to middle, Shuni Mudra, gives patience and inner peace.  Thumb to ring, Surya Mudra, gives revitalizing energy, nervous system strength and the power to win.  Thumb to pinky, Buddhi Mudra, opens the capacity to communicate clearly and intuitively.
  4. My Cool Experience with Mudras – I was training for a half marathon (Wow! Still in shock that I actually did that!) and during training my hands would naturally go into Gyan Mudra (GM) on their own.  It was comfortable and felt natural so I let it be.  When shifting my fingers from active (thumb on top of nail) to passive (thumb to tip of finger) my entire body would shift back and forth.  For active GM my lower triangle (lower chakras) and pelvic and hip area would be more energized and active.  For passive GM I would feel the energy shift to my upper triangle (heart center chakras and up) and I would start running by leading with my chest.  It was pretty cool to play around with it and experience the shift in energy throughout my body.
  5. TEDx Talk & Manifesting Miracles – I was assigned the Kirtan Kriya for 40 days at 11 minutes. In doing the exercise I had a friend present an amazing opportunity to possibly give a TEDx talk.  I was up against two other people with much more experience and didn’t think I would stand a chance.  I began seeing myself on stage with the TEDx in the background and a week later I received a call confirming that I would be delivering a TEDx at Johnson and Wales University in Miami, Fl.  This came to a complete surprise for me and I KNOW that Kirtan Kriya is to thank for this seamless and effortless manifestation.  To top it off, I didn’t even fill out an application or talk to anyone on the phone.  A few emails back and forth and I was in!  Pretty freaking amazing!
  6. Holy Shit A Complete Career Enhancement – Last year I went part-time in a job so that I could focus more on clients, my vlog/blog, online programs as well as more time with my daughter.  I was pretty miserable in my position as Account Manager for employee benefit trust funds, but it was paying the bills and supporting my dream so I hung in there.  Many, many times I questioned my sanity but I began receiving the message that I was wasting precious time.  I began looking for my dream support job – part-time, flexible hours, same pay or more, coaching people in a corporate environment, and creating team building activities for employees.  I looked online a few times but nothing stood out.  And then, out of the blue my boss approached me and said that she had a DREAM THAT I WAS: COACHING, ORGANIZING ENRICHMENT PROGRAMS AND NO LONGER IN MY ROLL AS ACCOUNT MANAGER.  WHOA.. JUST WHOA with me here!!  Did that really fucking happen?!  It did.  And now I am a part-time Corporate Coach and Employee Enrichment Coordinator for a wonderful company that supports me and my vision.  Holy cow!!
  7. Clarity Like a MOFO – I see it.  I see where Feed Her Soul is going.  The website, the programs, the vlog, the partnerships and how it will help women all across the globe.  It’s a long road ahead, but I see where it’s going and it’s going to be epic.  It’s very exciting to know and see it in my Soul.
  8. Visuals Like Nobody’s Business – Two times I had extremely vivid visual experiences in my minds eye.  The first one happened in my first weekend in training.  During an intense meditation my mind’s eye showed me a compact mirror open up and then a girl came into the mirror and stared right at me.  It was as if “I” was looking at myself through a portal.  Super crazy and cool. The second set of visuals that I was gifted with were during White Tantric.  During a 62 minute partner meditation I saw visions of mine and my partner’s DNA.  The DNA was crusted in black (picture something that had been on fire and the black crust left behind) and the crust began to fall away.  Parts of the DNA also fell away and then rejoined the DNA were newly formed links made of bright yellow light.  The DNA was shifting inside of me and my partner. It was pretty fucking magical.
  9. The Law of Correspondence – lungs look like trees, beets are good for the blood, celery like like and are good for the bones. There are many correspondences to our human body and nature.
  10. The Power of Words & Frequency of Sound – this topic has been an ongoing learning for me and my Kundalini studies provided a new depth to this knowledge that I continue to embody.  All of our words carry vibration and each vibration is at a specific frequency.  Many mantras are chanted at a certain monotone sound for this purpose.  The words cannot be translated to English because that would then change the sound of the words and therefore they would lose their effectiveness.
  11. It Took Me 10 Years to Talk to My Father – It’s been well over a decade since I spoke with my father.  Over the Thanksgiving holiday I was visiting my hometown and in conversation with my sister we made the decision to pay a visit to my father’s sisters.  It had been even longer since I saw them and the reunion was very nice. It was then that I got to learn about my father and why he became the man that he is.  I had heard rumors over the years but this was everything laid out with nothing held back.  A raw, honest and heartfelt conversation with his family helped me see why he truly was who he was.  It was not an excuse, but I now had a new understanding.  As a gift from God a shift in perception took place in my heart and I began to see him as a man with mental illness.  In seeing him that way I instantly became more compassionate towards him and forgiveness filled my heart. I showed up on his front porch with pumpkin pie and whipped cream and acted like nothing had ever happened.  I hugged him, kept the conversation light and updated him on my life.  WOW – I can’t believe that actually went down!  10 years without speaking to a person and then boom – just like that a shift occurred.
  12. Emotional Childhood Release & Healing – During a 10-Bodies massage exercise as my partner deeply massaged specific pressure points on my body I began to see visions from my childhood flutter through my mind like a screen play.  The visions were of my stepfather and I could see how he instilled fear in me that had been instilled in him by his parents and  I instantly knew that the fear I was experiencing in my business was related to his fear.  As my massage partner hit upon certain pressure points in my buttox and the backs of my legs I began to release the stored emotions of fear that were in my body that had been put there when he would lash out on me with a belt.  In front of the entire classroom I wailed and cried so hard that I had to cover my face out of embarrassment. My body convulsed as the energy released and there was nothing I could do to stop it. The next day I felt like a new woman and could feel the difference energetically in my body.

Why I Started To Support the Organic Movement & Why Grocery Shopping is Like Voting

Why I Started To Support the Organic Movement & Why Grocery Shopping is Like Voting

We have more control over things than we let ourselves believe.  It comes down to simple acts like shopping and giving ourselves permission to bypass catchy coupons and flashy sales, to instead support holistic and mindful movements that reflect our innermost values.

There was a time when I lived for bargains and bogos.  Regardless of whether the item reflected my innermost values, I allowed my purchases to be guided by media and sales ads.  What I didn’t realize was that every single time I pulled out my wallet to pay for something I was essentially casting a vote.  I was saying, “More of this please!”.   From bigshot corporations to family farms, it doesn’t matter who it is that’s providing the goods, they will supply what we are demanding because they want our money.

What I want for you to understand is that transitioning into a mindful lifestyle and switching your purchases to reflect what you believe in is an evolving process for most of us – because we are evolving and that’s how it goes.  As we evolve into mindful, self-aware individuals it becomes a natural side effect.  At least, it has been that way for me.  As a highly sensitive individual I can honestly say that I can “feel” when it is time to transition to an organic product.  My intuition won’t let it leave my mind and I can feel it in my gut that the product is no longer serving my body or my home.  And I owe my intuitive knowing to my meditation.  So my message to you is to keep meditating, keep learning about yourself, keep remembering your truth, and continue to define what matters to you – and then, without even thinking about it, you will naturally gravitate towards more mindful purchases.

I hope today’s video serves you and that you find areas in your shopping to improve and reflect the values and movements that you support.

With deep love,

Ro

How to Shift The Energy of an Entire Room

How to Shift The Energy of an Entire Room

When you are around negativity and you feel uncomfortable, just know that you are there for a reason.  You are right where you belong and you are right where you are needed.

As a lightworker it is your job and responsibility to bring light and joy into situations where there isn’t any.  Surrounding yourself with like-minded, positive friends is not always an option and it’s not how it’s always supposed to be.  The world needs your light in a lot of places and this is when you get to do your lightwork and shift the energy of the entire room with your presence.

Love them, show affection, be up-beat and light in conversation, make jokes, smile a lot, contribute positive perspective to their depressing stories, be prepared in advance with something uplifting to talk about, excuse yourself if you need to get away and take a deep breather, pray before you arrive and ask your guides for help, do not feel the need to contribute to their negativity, change the subject if you have to, be graceful and loving, see in your minds-eye the room and everyone in it lighting up.

They may not understand what’s going on, they may even think something is a little off with you, and that’s okay.  Being a lightworker is not always an easy job, but it is necessary for your inner peace, their inner peace (whether they realize it or not), and the healing of the world. In the end, you have shifted the energy of the entire room.

What tricks do you have up your sleeve for shifting the energy of others?  Please share in the comments section below!  I’m very interested in knowing and I know the other readers of this blog will be too! 

With love and light,

Kundalini Withdrawls

Kundalini Withdrawls

Kundalini Withdrawals Ro Ferrelli Blog

On my birthday this year (September 8th) I committed to 40 days of a specific Kundalini meditation.  I had initially wanted to do 1,000 days for Self-Mastery as my numerology report suggested, but as I read more about Sadhana’s (committed spiritual practices to obtain a particular result) the fear crept in and I decided to start small with a 40 day commitment.

The first 40 days were AMAZING! Shifts left and right, slight changes, big changes, leaps and bounds in all directions were occurring in my life!  It was as if my consciousness had merged with another reality – a reality that was still my own, but this one was much better – this new reality was enhanced!  In fact, I began noticing so many changes that I started taking notes in my phone every time something out of the ordinary happened.  Here are the results from the first 40 days of my Kundalini Sadhana:

  1. I received a check for $4,500 from something that happened over 6 years ago
  2. For the first time in my life I was able to completely eliminate refined sugar from my diet without any stress about it or cravings. It was simply a decision that I made and just like that I stopped consuming it for 18 days one month, then 16 days the next.
  3. I went down a pant size from a 10 to an 8 (something I’ve been struggling with for a loooong time)
  4. For the first time I was eating whole and clean while maintaining a regular workout regimen. Usually it is one or the other, but the fact that I was balancing both was a wonderful feeling.
  5. I was offered two speaking engagement opportunities, one of them as a key note speaker!
  6. I received a title and salary promotion at my day job.
  7. Lots of extra money trickled in from random sources. An extra $30 here, $100 there – this happened on several

I know what you’re thinking, “Holy shit! Why did you stop?!”  I know, I know… Looking back it seems crazy that I would have ever stopped but here’s what happened.  When I approached day 40 I was totally gung-ho to go to 60 days – I mean who wouldn’t be after a run like that?!  Day 60 approached and nothing additional had really happened.  The shifting stopped and the magic wasn’t there like before.  No more WOWs were manifesting.  At day 60 I committed to another 30 days making my next goal 90 days.  Day 90 arrived.  The meditations were easy, and repetitive and I was starting to get bored.  At the time I hadn’t noticed anything else shifting and I felt as if I had plateaued.  Although looking back now I can see that the urge to start stretching and doing a quick run of traditional yoga poses pre meditation had crept into my daily practice during this time frame.  I felt good and things were running smoothly, but I wasn’t seeing magical results like I had in the beginning.

Day 90 ended a week and a half ago and I am having Kundalini withdrawals.  I haven’t been meditating every morning, I lost my office space at my job and got moved to a cubicle (totally shitty), I’ve been eating shit food, my energy levels are down, horrible and time consuming projects are coming out of the walls at work, I’m back to a size 10 (respectively – there’s nothing wrong with this size I just prefer my pre-pregnancy size 8), my face is broke out, I feel very overwhelmed and easily annoyed.

So the next question is, when am I starting again.  I feel like it needs to happen soon and I’m contemplating starting on January 1st (that does seem ideal) but I don’t know if I can wait that long.  I may just start back up tomorrow.

What is your experience with Kundalini meditation?  Have you experienced this type of withdrawal/backlash with meditation or energy work before?  Please, please share!  I’m really interested (and I’ll bet money that everyone else reading this blog is interested too) in knowing about your experience and how it panned out for you.

As always, thank you sooo much for taking the time to read, comment and share my posts with your closest friends and family.

With infinite love,

Ro

[p.s. after writing this post I went to my car and did a Kundalini meditation.  Writing about all of the goodness that came from this practice has me eager to start back up again.  It’s on!]

A Spiritual Way to Deal With The Ridiculous!

A Spiritual Way to Deal With The Ridiculous!

Ro Ferrelli Blog A Spiritual Way for Dealing With Ridiculous

This morning I yelled out to the Universe, “What do I do with them?! What am I supposed to do?!!  This is ridiculous!!!”  I paused for a second because my voice was loud and angry and then I thought, “Well, I am pissed!  These people are fucking ridiculous!”  And I left it at that.

I have a very difficult client that I manage at work (the day job).  This client is not just one person though, it is several individuals and their personalities are like none that I have EVER had to interact with before (at least on a long term basis that is).  I have worked with them for the last three years and it has been a jerky ride from day one.  I know they are in my life for a broader reason – there are valuable gems hidden in these relations, I know this.  But the constant feeling of being *shit on* by them makes it hard to appreciate why they are here in my life.  Absurd requests, insane numbers of emails in one day, jabs in my side in front of others about something I made a mistake on months ago, over controlling behaviors, belittlement, cutting me off mid-sentence, and the list goes on and on.  LET ME TELL YOU, THESE PEOPLE ARE FUCKING RIDICULOUS.

But here is what happened!  Later that day as I’m sitting at my computer I become very aware of all of the buzzing around in the office and a peaceful tone takes over me.  I take a deep cleansing breath and then this thought comes to me out of nowhere.  My hand writes:

“LOVE THEM.  Love them so much in every way you can think of.”

I knew right then and there this was my response from the beautiful (and always responding) Universe.  This is what I have to do. This is my lesson from them – the path to uncovering the hidden gems that lie within this experience.  My gift to myself, my gift from the Universe and my gift from them, unknowingly.

Just like that my entire perspective is changed and I feel 100 times better. Loving these people in a Divine way regardless of their ridiculousness in every way possible is how I will move through this – this is why they are in my life.  Sending loving and thoughtful email responses, following up on things that matter to them, caring about the outcome with them, taking full ownership of my work, responding gently and lovingly, picking up the phone when there is a concern.

Alright now, I need to hear your comments, thoughts and experiences in dealing with extremely ridiculous people.  What has worked?  What hasn’t worked?  Did you give in or did you accept the assignment?  Your comments are viewed by thousands of visitors that come to this blog each day and what you write may just be what someone needs to hear in order to have the breakthrough they need.

And by the way, thank you for your love, for sharing my work with your friends and for making writing this blog one of my most favorite things to do in the world.

With love and sincere gratitude,

Ro
