Laura Poole  Mind calm γ€° Life in flow Sharing ways to cultivate inner wisdom and be of powerful purpose πŸ‘‰πŸΌ Vedic meditation teacher based in Melbourne

http://www.laurapoole.com/learntomeditate

Full house this week for the two Vedic meditation community events we held with my teacher and master cogniser @thomknoles. It was an honour to host these two events and see the powerful flow of Vedic wisdom inspire and uplift the already wakeful crew of 120+ meditators on the night. Everyone's eyes were dilating with bliss after!!! So looking forward to more of these knowledge, love and connection filled experiences in this wonderful city of Melbourne.

This week I'm playing around with different therapies to keep this little body engine of mine firing on all cylinders πŸ€Έβ€β™€οΈMeditation is key for the mind and deep relaxation of body - however I find extra little body pick-me-ups along the way really help... especially when there's lots of activity being engaged in on a daily basis.
γ€°
And so far, soaking in a bath filled with 500kg of magnesium salts for an hour has definitely had a calming and deeply nourishing effect on my body. My naturopath suggested magnesium supplements... so I thought why not soak half a ton of it in through the biggest organ I have? πŸ™ƒ
γ€°
Verdict? I always feel a deeper relaxation take place in my usual meditation sessions compared to float tanks, however the effect of the magnesium on my body has been greatly appreciated and I'll definitely be back for more πŸ™πŸΌ γ€°
Stay tuned for tomorrow's therapy... one I'm excited and kind of nervous about too! Any guesses? 😜

JAI GURU DEVA! Today we celebrate Guru Purnima - the full moon night of honouring all the teachers in our lives who illuminate our minds and awaken our hearts. I am forever grateful for the support and transformative Vedic wisdom my guru @thomknoles passed on to me, which he received from his guru, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, which he received from his guru, Swami Brahmananda Saraswati and so on back to the beginning of time.
.
Gratitude to ALL the teachers in my life... to Amma, to the ocean that flows with wisdom, to my mother who was my first teacher. Jai Guru Deva Namo Namaha!
.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi spoke about Guru Purnima and I'm sharing his words below...
.
β€œPurnima means fullness. It has to do with the full moon, but also fullness of the heart. Guru Purnima is the day of infinite correlation, the day of Supreme knowledge, the day of Brahman. It is the day of Guru. Guru Purnima is the fullness of Guru Deva, the fullness of guru, the fullness of pure knowledge.
.
Guru is the expression of enlightenment, pure knowledge, the field of all possibilities. The field of infinite correlation. In that supreme awakening, in that supreme awareness, in the state of supreme knowledge we have wholeness of life. Absolute value of Being. Pure infinity. Pure eternity. Pure immortality.
.
Guru Purnima day is structured in pure knowledge. It comes year after year to bring you awakening of totality of life. It unfolds the full potential of knowledge and brings to fulfilment the master-disciple relationship. It is the master-disciple relationship, and that expresses itself in its totality. Full potential of all possibilities. It is a very special day. It’s a very special day for us.”- MAHARISHI MAHESH YOGI
