~ Awakening the goddess energies which regenerate, transform, and awaken unconditional love preparing the aspirant to establish Life Everlasting ~
Kumara Yoga is a matriarchal discipline for opening the heart. Its practice awakens the Goddess energies within the body which evolve and transmute a person into a god or goddess; more self realized and fulfilled by becoming immersed within the omnipotent presence of love; greater knowledge of the true self underlying all life; connected in a deeper way with ourselves with enhanced self understanding and self compassion.
This branch of Yoga awakens and develops the evolutionary force allowing an accelerated purification of ‘heavier emotions’ and ‘bothersome thoughts’ to occur. Kumara Yoga is essentially a path of love. Its practice focuses the student upon four precepts: sacrifice necessary to purify the memory of the etheric body; surrender to establish mastery of the mind; selflessness to bring about fuller mastery of desire within our emotional body; and service, an essential component to secure for the student mastery over his physical body and surroundings.
Kumara Yoga is a physical and meditative discipline, comprising a set of simple techniques that uses the mind, senses and body to create a communication between mind, body, and soul. Kumara yoga focuses on psycho-spiritual growth and the body's potential for maturation, giving special consideration to the role of the spine and the endocrine system in the understanding of yogic awakening.
The practice of kumara yoga consists of a number of bodily postures, expressive movements and decrees, breathing patterns, and degrees of concentration. Most techniques include the following features: cross-legged positions, the positioning of the spine (usually straight), different methods to control the breath, the use of creative imagination, focused breathing with closed eyes, and mind focus (often on the sound of the breath). The Embracing Eternity Exercises have some crossover similarities to Tantric Yoga, a powerful meditation practice that clears the subconscious mind, allowing prosperity, success, and happiness to flow freely into your life. It is an ancient and unique yogic science that accelerates your psychological growth by dissolving deep-rooted subconscious blocks while clearing permanently the etheric, mental, emotional, and physical obstructions.
Kumara Yoga links movement with breath. It is differentiated by a direct focus on moving energy through the chakra system, stimulating the energy in the lower chakras and moving it to the higher chakras. The chakras are energy centers, seven in total, located beginning at the base of the spine and ending at the top of the head. An eighth chakra exists in Kumara Yoga, which is the electromagnetic field, sometimes called "aura." The aura is strengthened through the practice of Kumara Yoga. Kumara Yoga is intended to command the awakening of the electrons within the structure of the atom, quickening their whirling around the central core of the nucleus of Love. This same energy then journeys through the nervous system, endocrine system, and glandular systems acting as a regenerative elixir propelling the student to transcend the lower states of mind, accelerating their personal consciousness unto being able to tap the Infinite. The Fire energies travel along the spine by activating the nerve channels that are intertwined there as well. Through healthy radiation of this ‘fire energy’ through the nervous system, a wonderful regeneration and wholeness occurs for sincere students of this artful practice.
Kumara Yoga is sometimes called "the Yoga of Wholeness" because it awakens the Primordial Creative Fire and the student learns to distribute this fire energy throughout their field of consciousness. This creative fire is highly transmutative allowing to birth forth the unlimited potential that already exists within every human being. It is believed that when the infinite potential energy is raised in the body it stimulates the higher centers, giving the individual enhanced intuition and mental clarity and creative potential.
The Creative Fire practice of yogic attainment was considered a dangerous practice by ruling powers and so, was historically practiced in secret. The knowledge was handed down from one heart to another only after long initiation processes to determine the student's commitment. The awakening of this primordial creative force has the power and intelligence to take the student from where they are to where they wish to be in their life.
The student learns the art of continual communion with the all-pervading spiritual force. Relationship to this god force of all existence is the single most powerful strategy to attain the awakening of the evolutionary gift of the Primordial Creative Fire. By aligning the mind and emotions and physical body with the Spark of love within us, we can bring forth unconditional Love; we actually become more unconditional.
Blending the secrets of awakening the transmutative energies, and knowing the art of how to radiate this sacred energy throughout the physical body, mind, and emotions, naturally establishes us in a vibrant and radiant health - physical, mental, emotional clarity, and soul awareness. Greater union with higher thoughts of love and joy, faith and bliss, unfolds in us; a pure state of unconditional consciousness, inner empowerment, and love becomes ever-present.
One of the Kumaras, Sanat Kumara, dictated to his disciple Narada the wisdom of love to benefit his students and their descendants. This text became known as the Bhakti Sutras, the sutras on divine love, which continue to be one of the principle texts on the path of love in India. When this understanding is combined with the creative power of thought and right identity, its effects will be seen to be marvelous in the life of the student.
Part of the Kumaras’ “academic” teaching on love was that before humans could evolve into gods and goddesses in the embracing of eternity they first needed to unite or “marry” the opposing male and female principles naturally existing within themselves. By doing so they could become energetically androgynous, thereby precluding the need for another person or any material object; they become awakened in knowing the Universal Mind and Presence as themselves, individualized into expression. Only then could they extricate themselves from the bonds of attachment and freely express unconditional love, mastery over their energy and vibration, and the ascension which is the goal of human existence.
The Kumaras taught that yoga and alchemy are proficient tools for uniting the internal polarity and awakening the Fire energies. But the Kumaras were also emphatic that the best and safest path for uniting all polar opposites is the expression of love. By loving oneself and loving others all internal and external oppositions fall away and the serpent fire awakens on its own. Truly, the outer life perfectly mirrors the positive transformations of the internal life within the student; true freedom and a sustained experience of unconditional love blossom organically.
