Processing & Dissolving Triggers Yoga Nidra

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-774mq-110affe

 Dissolving Your Triggers Yoga Nidra

This Yoga Nidra was recorded live at Steam House Hot Yoga steamhousenh.com 75 Railroad Ave., Epping NH USA on Oct 18, 2021 by Melissa Abbott melissaabbott.com with Heidi James on the Singing Bowls.

This Yoga Nidra is a powerful technique to Process those things keeping you from being in the Flow of the Universe

A powerful foundational Tantric Yoga Meditation Practice taken from the illuminated 1000+ year old spiritual masterpiece, “The Pratyabhijna-Hrdraya” also known as The Recognition Sutras. In the Recognition Sutras or The Heart of Recognition, the author, Rajanaka Ksemaraja, gives us useful and practical ways to embrace the whole of our experience of the expanded center, so we can release and surrender our identification with our psychological self, our unresolved past, stories we tell ourselves, mental constructs, and samskaras. Those things that get us triggered and stuck with revolving mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual patterns. In essence this we can move on from our conditioning and touch more deeply within ourselves.

This meditation became alive for me a couple of years ago when I took a Recognition Sutras course with Christopher Hareesh Wallis. I had actually been interested and studied this text on and off since 1991. It wasn’t until his translation of the actual practices in Chapter 18 that this text spoke so clearly to my actual meditation practice. I started implementing the expanded central channel into my daily meditation sessions and the result has been stunning clarity to embrace the whole of reality.

I first received this practice in July 2019 with Christopher Hareesh Wallis at Omega Institute for Holistic Studies during retreat.

This is my interpretation of his teachings via Ksemaraja of 1000 years ago. I hope you will experience that the radical acceptance to the nature of reality means surrender to what wants to move though you. This practice has the ability to help you relax out of identification with your stories and patterns and stop clinging to aversions and self images.

Christopher Hareesh Wallis is the author of Tantra Illuminated and The Recognition Sutras and his website is Tantrikainstitute.org where you can study Tantric Yoga meditation practices.

by Melissa Abbott

http://www.MelissaAbbott.com melissa@melissaabbott.com after a Power Vinyasa Class on Sept 11, 2021 with Heidi James on soundscape singing bowls.

This Yoga Nidra was designed to awaken the inner consciousness. Mind/emotions/senses/thinking are here one moment and gone the next, they are ephemeral in nature. They arise and subside in a greater space of Self Awareness which is something far more fundamental than any ideas you might have about yourself.

Having the realization that Awareness is not something that you do, but rather something that you Are, is a awakening of witness consciousness, a major step in personal evolution.

Make yourself comfortable, lying on your back with a natural fiber shawl covering you to contain the meditation energy. Headphones are recommended. Enjoy ❤️🙏🧘‍♀️ A Simple but Powerful Practice

Super Excited that my 105 page Reiki 2 is printed, perfect bound with a glossy cover and all ready forthe Reiki 2 Certification on Oct 24.

I teach more protections, Reiki 2 symbols, cellular memory techniques, how to feel blockages with your hands, creating a reiki circle or group, how to give reiki distantly and to multiple persons on a daily basis. You learn a powerful Gassho Meditaion and a Reiki Second Attention Practice that keeps the energy flowing even when you are busy doing other things.

Anadama Bread Recipe

Authentic Anadama Bread – from my book of Historic Cape Ann Recipes “ The Legacy of Three Melissas” by Melissa Smith Abbott

Click to Buy: The Legacy of Three Melissas: Authentic and Original Cape Ann Recipes https://www.amazon.com/dp/1450722156/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_C0242YGBH6WK0FR4Q1XH

Available on Amazon.com kindle and
soft cover version

Recipe

1/2 cup course cornmeal

2 cup boiling water

2 Tbsp butter

1/2 cup organic blackstrap molasses (buy it in a health food store)

1 tsp. sea salt

1 package or 1 Tbsp. dry active yeast dissolved in 1/8 cup warm water

5 cups unbleached flour


Using a double boiler, boil some water in bottom section (see video) and put 2 cups hot water in the top part of double boiler, when hot whisk in cornmeal a little at a time with wire whisk. Add 1/2 cup molasses, 2 Tbsps. butter, and 1 tsp. sea salt. Cook on low in double boiler for at least an hour. You may let it sit overnight for even better texture and flavor. I talk about why in my You Tube tutorial, which gives you a complete overview of the process. Cool cornmeal and molasses mixture to luke warm. Combine cornmeal/molasses mixture with 5 cups of unbleached flour and softened yeast. Knead until completely combined and stays in a ball. You can do this in a mixer with a dough hook, food processor, or by hand in a bowl. Place dough in greased bowl and let rise 60 minutes in warm place covered by plastic wrap or damp cloth. When double in bulk, knead again on floured surface for a few minutes and then form into 2 loaves. I go over the best way to form them in the video. Place loaves in greased heavy bread pans, cover lightly with plastic wrap and let rise for 60 more minutes. When double in bulk preheat oven to 400 degrees and bake loaves for 45min -1 hour. Check to make sure oven isn’t too hot, if they start to brown quickly, turn down oven to 375 degrees. Depending on your oven, they may be done earlier so start checking them at 40 minutes.
It has been my pleasure to share this bit of Cape Ann history with you. I hope you bake this with love and enjoy it in your home. I would love to hear your experiences! Happy Baking!
