International mindfulness and alignment teacher Karuna talks about subtle energy and how you can even get it at the supermarket…
Subtle awareness evokes a soul-aligned joy: the knowing of a partner well so that mere glance says all is well, I’ve got your back; symphonic pauses and rhythms that create suspense; aromas of oils to caress skin and soothe emotion.
Great yogis have taught and encouraged subtle understanding and experience and for hundreds of years, during daily puja (worship and prayers), the five senses are honoured. This daily worship becomes a multi sensory experience including taste, smell, sound, sight and touch.
Each day subtle experiences work in our favour and try to wake us up: Do we pay attention?
Gazing into the eyes of a child, an animal companion and one you love can offer a profound subtle experience; the ‘aha’ moments of life are infused with suptlety; smells from the kitchen may remind us of a childhood memory of being nurtured and loved; the soaring beauty of song uplifts, lightens and brightens the spirit.
By enlivening our subtle awareness, we begin to see how each day is strung together, moment-by-moment, with opportunities to awaken and live in greater balance and joy.
By recognising the daily opportunities for subtle expression, we find playful enjoyment in every part of the day. Why not try these this week?
