The Power of Love

Originally published in Yoga Therapy Today, a publication of the International Association of Yoga Therapists. Reprinted with permission. In her book The Namaste Effect: Expressing Universal Love Through the Chakras, Nischala Joy Devi presents a relatable vision of these “whirling vortexes of love.” She notes that she deliberately offers her overview of the chakras from a modern Western perspective, hoping to accomplish nothing less than a global shift in consciousness. Devi asks, “How many of us are really conscious of the role...

‘Tis the season to be Grateful

‘Tis the season to be Grateful

This we are told is the season of joy, giving and remembering the light and spirit within each of us. Our already packed schedule is now asked to accommodate all the hustle and bustle the season demands. The promised joy is often invaded by stress and lack of self-care. This leads us to feel less than jolly. If we take time to reflect, we are reminded of the gifts that we are given on a daily basis. How fortunate we are to have so much: a safe place to shelter us, the abundance of healthy food, a community with hearts united, a loving family....

The Power to Heal

by Nischala Joy Devi The Power to Heal Program Do you believe you have the power to heal yourself? The power to heal others? When most of us think of healing we imagine going to a bonafide “Healer,” someone who pro ports to possess the rare and mystical power to heal. This could be a spiritual or religious person, or even a member of the medical community. Why do we think they have a special power and we do not? Is it something that they were granted at birth or developed later on? Would it be a surprise to discover that we have this same...

Cultivating the Yoga of Devotion

From A Yoga Mama’s Guide 8-LIMBS intuition YOGA AND PARENTING YOGA AND PREGNANCY by Nischala Joy Devi A WOMAN’S HEART Honored by most traditions, a compassionate heart has become the symbol for devotion. It is often a female heart that is used as the standard for that devotion and love. In even the youngest of girls, care and nurturing for even the smallest creatures are intuitive and natural. Motherhood has been anointed the apex of this love and compassion. Madonna and child was a familiar theme in the Christian church, even during...

The Meaning of Life and the Meaning of Namaste

BY EXCELLENCE REPORTER ON MARCH 29, 2018 Nicolae Tanase: Nischaladevi, what is the meaning of life? Nischala Joy Devi: The question “What is the meaning of life?” morphs into “what brings meaning to life?” Life seems more meaningful when we embrace love and joy, in every moment. We are all searching for something to bring us meaning. Perhaps, when we become still, we remember it is all within. By directing our first conscious thought in the early morning and supplanting the last one at night with love and joy, the question “what is...

The Quiet Voice of Intuitive Wisdom

by Nischala Joy Devi. Intuitive Wisdom empowers us to expand beyond the constantly changing natural world (seen) to the abode of the Divine Spirit (seer). As our consciousness expands, we realize that there is an essential difference between the inner world of the spirit and the outer world of nature. An Intuitive Wisdom emerges, strengthened by constant acknowledgment. Our intuition whispers to us in a voice that is often overshadowed by the louder, more prominent voice of our thoughts. It is the quiet voice of our spirit guiding us toward...

Imagery – Using Our Inner Guidance

by Nischala Joy Devi July 3, 2015 Imagery, our inner guidance, allows us to create and experience. It is the language of the mind. The mind speaks in images and then translates those images into words. When we listen to words or concepts, we interpret them in ways we are familiar with or that we can understand. We can practice positive imagery as a means to allow the mind and body to mobilize all available resources that assist in the healing process, creating an intention that brings about positive physiological and psychological responses,...

Savor Your Food

by Nischala Joy Devi. March 4, 2015. How far we have come with awareness of healthy eating and the many ways to take good care of ourselves through what we ingest. Unfortunately, even with all this information, education, and changes in our diet many of us still do not feel energetic and vital. Could it be that we are not only what we eat but how we eat? At breakfast, the news you read, watch or listen to reports: “A two hundred point drop in the world stock market since yesterday, and another drop is predicted today.” “Holiday shoppers...

OM – The Sacred Sound

by Nischala Joy Devi. February 10, 2015. OM is the sacred mantra of divinity. It is chanted and revered as the sound from which all other sounds resonate. , awakening universal consciousness. In this way, it is the guru of sounds, invoking the Divine Consciousness in every sound. A sacred sound must pluck the strings of our hearts in order to unite our entire being. Often we are accustomed to repeating the same prayer with our mind and heart engaged elsewhere. When that happens, the prayer is only given lip surface. The real grace comes when...

Breathing Inspiration

by Nischala Joy Devi. January 19, 2015. Our own breath provides a beautiful meditation. When we observe the breath, we begin to join the outer world with the inner world. As the waves gently come onto the earth and return to the sea, so our breath enters the body and then returns to the world. Our breath naturally flows in and out about 16 times a minute—back and forth, in and out, gently and evenly. We often use the word “inspiration” to mean something that comes to us from a higher place. To inspire is also to breathe in. To expire is...

The Holiday Season Should Be Joyful

by Nischala Joy Devi December 18, 2014 This beautiful time of year is also one of the most stressful for many people. The rush and obligations of the holiday season—a season that should be simply joyful—can bring anxiety, worry and higher blood pressure. At times of stress many of us withdrawa from our physical bodies and draw into our minds and emotional bodies. Breathing becomes shallow. If the shallow breathing is left undetected, that in itself becomes a signal of stress. As the body and the nervous system react to the shallow...

Spark The Remembrance of Who You Really Are

by Nischala Joy Devi. December 2, 2014. Before we begin to formulate a word or even a thought, a feeling is experienced that stems from a vibration. This vibration that triggers the feeling is then translated into a thought, a thought to a word, a word to writing–a complex process that happens in a heartbeat. When we read, the word is connected to a thought, which then traces back to a feeling or sensation. It happens so quickly and often that we fail to notice that each thought is the outgrowth of a feeling. We see this phenomenon...

Give the Heart a Place of Honor

by Nischala Joy Devi. November 17, 2014. To truly progress as spiritual beings, we must give the heart a place of honor. My foremost inspiration from a saintly woman came in the form of Sri Sarada Devi. Most commonly known as the wife of Sri Ramakrishna Paramahansa, she was a luminous teacher in her own right, known to many as the “Holy Mother.” In her humility, the Holy Mother expressed the teachings through her living example. Often friends or students who came to me during a life crisis did not want to express their emotions,...

The Animals Will Love You

by Nischala Joy Devi. November 4, 2014. Taken as a prisoner of war and then isolated from his fellow inmates, Timothy was expected to survive on only a glass of water and one slice of bread each day. Although his body was being starved, it was his soul that was withering away. When he received the meager ration, all he could imagine was the satisfaction of sharing it with others in communion. Timothy envisioned cutting his one small piece of bread into four pieces. Clandestinely, he figured out a way he could give all but one of the miniscule...
