PRATYAHARA ~ Awareness of the Senses ~ 

The Fifth Limb of The Yoga Sutras

The WISDOM podcast  Season 3  Episode 65

 

~ See without the senses distracting or pulling the mind,  ~

💜

 

*Pratyahara is the fifth limb of yoga in the Ashtanga yoga system—also called the eight-limbed path of the yoga sutras—and it serves as a foundation for the practice of meditation.

 

Through meditation, you can better understand how to hone your awareness, connect to the present moment, and find inner peace or calm.

 

In the practice of pratyahara you draw your mind inward ~ you release the urge to immediately react to incoming sensation. You approach stilling the mind by shifting the act of sensing from an external to an internal orientation.

 

Through the practice of pratyahara, you develop concentrative powers that could be called supra ~ above sensory because the act of seeing or feeling becomes heightened to a tremendous degree. It is as though you have new eyes and ears, new senses. You perceive colour more vividly and enjoy your food more, and as you truly wake your senses, you awaken to and value the inner psychological and spiritual dimensions that are the substance and source of what you feel, see, taste, smell and hear.

 

Your attention in the practice of pratyahara is directed inwards, being totally aware of where the impulse to breathe in and breathe out arises. The total awareness of this itself is pratyahara – or drawing one’s attention into and within oneself.

 

 

I liken this to what I call a state of bliss. And yes it is a state of being that you can live in as you practice pratyahara ad as you seek to live this state more of the time – especially during the practice of meditation, mindfulness, inner contemplation, presence in this moment.

 

 

Join me for this beautiful exploration of the fourth limb of the Yoga Sutras ~ PRATYAHARA.

 

Sending you great 💜 love...

 

Sharing the wisdom and beauty of divine love with you...

Namaste!

love, dorothy

Waiting to Exhale ~ PRANAYAMA

'ask dorothy' | Q & A

The WISDOM podcast  Season 3  Episode 64

 

Pranayama breathing guides us into the ease of pure existence.  ~

💜

 

Do you ever catch yourself holding your breath?  Perhaps in anticipation, in anxiety, in the realization that something is not going as you had hoped?

 

Maybe your hold your breath when you think about what magic lives in store for you and your future - like when you daydream and wish and manifest your heartfelt desires?

 

Pranayama is a Sanskrit word formed by two words. Prana means a subtle life-force / ‘vital energy’ / ‘breath of life’ which gives energy to the mind and body (it is also translated as the substance of the astral world) and ayama which signifies the voluntary effort to expand, lengthen and direct life-force or prana.

Pranayama, therefore, means “extension of life force.”

 

Waiting to exhale is the other side of waiting to enjoy life’s precious moments because you are focused in the end goal rather than the entire journey and what more you seek and learn from the total sum of your experiences.

 

The lessons are the magic. They are the ways in which life avails to us the importance of our path ~ of the miracles that continue ceaselessly all around us and in all moments and with our conviction.

 

What are you waiting for?

 

What are you wishing to change or have or be that seems far reaching and yet perfect for you to discover and experience now? The perfect basis of your beautiful nature lives inside of you. To seek and know it is the essence of life in its truest form.

 

Sending you great 💜 love...

 

Sharing the wisdom and beauty of divine love with you...

Namaste!

love, dorothy

'ask dorothy' | Q & A

Self-Study IS Liberation

The WISDOM podcast  Season 3  Episode 56

 

~ "gnōthi seauton" ~ Know Thyself ~

💜

 

In this episode of ‘ask dorothy’ I answer the question: What are the characteristics and traits of those who self-actualize and who live in liberation and the freedom to be all that they can and more?

 

If you are here and listening, this is for you. 

We live in a society and a world in which we are taught to look outside of our self for answers, for authority, for validation, for friendship, for community; for the ideals that we are taught to strive for and the timeline for accomplishing what is deemed acceptable.

 

Nowhere is our heart more certain than when we have found another who loves and adores us.

 

The gaze is always external. Even when we are asked to know ourselves, we still compare what we see with what we perceive to be the inspired ideal.

 

Self-actualization can be misrepresented. We may have an idea and an image of what it means to experience a state of being in which we have arrived. We are here. We are complete.

 

Self-actualized people have an acceptance of who they are, including what I call ‘the ego mind’ ~ the human construct that at times pulls us in to the limited ways in which we think and act and which create our suffering.

 

When you are self-actualized you experience a drive to be creative in all aspects of your life. This is in fact how you thrive.

 

Sending you great 💜 love...

 

Sharing the wisdom and beauty of divine love with you...

Namaste!

love, dorothy

SVADHYAYA ~ Self-Study ~ 

The Niyamas Series: 4 of 5

The WISDOM podcast  Season 3  Episode 55

 

~ The world gives you what you see. ~

💜

 

In this week’s episode we dive into the discipline of self-study and why this is necessary for self-fulfillment, epic growth, and personal freedom.

 

Here I share the steps for self-study and the ways in which we can experience our perceptions to invite us deeper into ourselves with love and grace and appreciation and for learning how capable we are.

The Sanskrit word for this is svadhyaya. Sanskrit is the world’s oldest language and it is the ancient and the classic language of India.

 

'Self-study' or Svadhyaya refers to knowing our true identity as divine consciousness. Think of it like this: This means that you already are ‘good enough’ capable, and perfect as you are.

 

Svadhyaya is the fourth of 5 Niyamas or observances that originate in the ancient text of the Yoga Sutras of Pantanjali.

 

The Yoga Sutras or ‘threads’ (as this word translates from Sanskrit) are a collection of 196 short verses that serve as a guide to attain wisdom and self-realization on how to live in order to advance along a spiritual path towards enlightenment.

 

Beyond the postures of yoga, the scripture of the yoga sutras provides the disciplines and observances that guide you in a practical and sacred methodology – to bring greater understanding to your life experiences and the guidance for taking ownership of your life, directing it towards the fulfillment that you seek.

 

 

In this episode I cite and also quote directly from Deborah Adele’s book: . From my research and study of the Yamas and the Niyamas, I’ve found Deborah’s book to be thoroughly enjoyable to read and I love how she has woven personal stories and other wisdom teachings throughout. I will leave a link here for how you can get a copy.

 

The yogis teach that we, as human beings, are at our core ~ divine consciousness.

 

Around this pure consciousness we have been impacted by our varied experiences, our conditioning, and our belief systems. This changes the way in which we see and identify ourselves, what we believe to be true, our preferences and dislikes, and our fears ~ and imagination.

 

If you think about the various layers that we hold ~ each informed by country, culture, gender, family history, the groups we belong to, and our personal experiences, it becomes difficult to remember who we truly are.

 

Who you are is the god consciousness. You don’t need to pray to a god outside of you. You simply need to be your god consciousness far more of the time ~ to live this ~ and to realize how incredible you are as your goodness.

 

The yogis tell us that we suffer because we forget who we are. We forget that we are really the divine.

Svadhyaya or self-study is about knowing our true identity and understanding the experiences that have shaped us. We find clues to this by watching our projections, tracing our reactions back to a belief we hold, and by courageously looking at life as it is.

 

This process of knowing ourselves creates a path to freedom. The ability to shift the way in which we identify ourselves from our ego to being a witness, and finally to our true identity as the divine itself is what svadhyaya – calls the joy of self-study.

 

I close out the episode with the practical ways to embrace the teaching of Svadhyaya.  Please join me!

 

Please consider a practice of self-study.  Leave a note for me here!  Share with me what you are learning in your devotion inward.

 

Sending you great 💜 love...

 

Sharing the wisdom and beauty of divine love with you...

Namaste!

love, dorothy

SANTOSHA ~ Contentment ~ 

The Niyamas Series: 2 of 5

The WISDOM podcast  Season 3  Episode 51

 

~ "Contentment is falling in love with your life.” - Swami Rama  ~

💜

 

Welcome to this series on the Niyamas. Niyama is Sanskrit for “rules, guidelines, or observances.” Niyamas appear in Hindu and Buddhist texts, and they are best known as the second limb of the eight limbs of yoga, as described in Patanjali's Yoga Sutras.

 

In Indian traditions, particularly Yoga, Niyamas and their complement, Yamas, are recommended activities and habits for healthy living, spiritual enlightenment, and a liberated state of existence.

 

The five niyamas the focus of this series ~ are constructive tools for cultivating happiness and self-confidence; the opportunity to practice and live in the balance of each of these arises in almost every moment day.

 

The five Niyamas are practices to be nurtured and cultivated. They will remain with us throughout our lives taking us ever deeper into the subtle realms of our being, moving us closer to the stillness inside.

 

The Niyamas as spiritual and practical teachings lead us beyond the body (in our activity and our asanas) and our mind (in meditation). Without them, samadhi ~ a state of joyful calm, or even of rapture and beatitude, in which one maintains full mental alertness and acuity ~ would be an impossible dream.

 

I also invite to check out my 5-part series on the Yamas next. These are moral disciplines that transcend all world religions as guiding us to live of our light and our highest self. I will leave links for this series in the description.

 

 

In this episode I cite and also quote directly from Deborah Adele’s book: The Yamas and Niyamas. Exploring Yoga’s Ethical Practice. Her wise words guide us into the practical and the spiritual as we explore the significance of the focus of this episode and the niyama santosha or “contentment” as well as “delight, happiness, joy.”

 

Santosha invites us into contentment by taking refuge in a calm centre, opening our hearts in gratitude for what we do have, and practising the paradox of ‘not seeking’.

'Not seeking' as not needing to be seeking and grasping whilst missing out on what is right in front of us ~ and often what is pure perfection.

 

While there is always a place and a need to look forward and plan the future, it is equally important to measure this with the balance of enjoying what is right here and now and directly in front of us. This is how we cultivate contentment for ‘what is’.

 

Along with getting ready for the next thing we seek, we tend to look at people’s lives and then decide what is missing from our own, rather than appreciate what we have.

When we compare ourselves to others and envy them, we move ourselves into a state of lack and disappointment. This moves us further away from feeling contentment, complete, and whole.

 

Contentment arises out of acceptance—of life, of ourselves, and of whatever life is offering to us in the present.

If you live the practice of Santosha ~ life would instantly be happier, easier, better, and with far more freedom to enjoy ‘what is’.

When we are content, we are happy. Thus—and here is the practice of this niyama—through the power of contentment, happiness becomes our choice.

 

Please join me in this beautiful practice.  Send me a note! Let me know how you are living the practice of santosha in your life.

 

Sending you great 💜 love...

 

Sharing the wisdom and beauty of divine love with you...

Namaste!

love, dorothy

'ask dorothy' | A Real Life Client Story

The Teaching of Impermanence

The WISDOM podcast  Season 3  Episode 48

 

“This too shall pass.”  ~

💜

 

In this episode of ‘ask dorothy’ I share a real-life client story (and a little of my own) that speaks to the beautiful nature of the human spirit when we can offer kindness and care to others in the words we speak, in sharing of our chainsaws to help clean up fallen trees and other examples of the actions that convey our oneness.

 

A grand example of both impermanence and oneness is the world covid pandemic and the fact that 77 countries at this very moment are still deeply struggling as case numbers in this week alone have increased, while in other countries we are quickly choosing to forget the discomfort and personal hardships that we have suffered.

 

Even as we are in different stages of a shared experience, this global phenomenon is one significant reminder of our oneness as humanity in a way that we typically are not able to see.

 

In this episode, we see how my client Olivia* chose to face the negativity and criticism among some of her colleagues with a teaching of impermanence and connection, and by practicing the presence of 'oneness'. 

* All clients names and some details of their story are changed in order to protect their confidentiality. 

 

Sending you great 💜 love...

ASTEYA ~ Non-stealing ~ 

The Yamas Series: 3 of 5

The WISDOM podcast  Season 3  Episode 43

 

If you have everything and if you have the ability to have everything, you will never be in need.  ~

💜

 

Welcome to this episode and the third of a five-part series on the yamas. Yamas are the first limb of yoga in the Ashtanga yoga system.

 

The literal translation of the word Yama in Sanskrit is “restraint”. Religious texts of Hinduism and Jainism outline five yamas.

 

In the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, asteya is described as the emptiness that is caused by a deep loss, unfulfilled desire, and the resulting lack or insecurity, jealousy or resentment that we focus on rather than looking inward ~ which always guides us to what we can and still need to do to support our well being; and to feel fulfilled, content, peaceful, and joyful.

 

According to the teachings in the Yoga Sutra (2.37), when we perfect the principle of asteya, riches comes to us. Although material wealth may unexpectedly appear when we need it, true spiritual wealth comes when we’re complete and whole within ourselves.

 

We don’t need to envy or take from others – whether in their time, their energy, or to seek attention and approval in order to feel good about ourselves.

 

We can rest in the unconditional love and wisdom that resides within us and experience the wholeness of our true self.

 

From this sense of inner fulfillment, we naturally want to give to others rather than to take from them.

 

Sending you great 💜 love...

 

Sharing the wisdom and beauty of divine love with you...

Namaste!

love, dorothy

The Truth Sets You Free

'ask dorothy'

The WISDOM podcast  Season 3  Episode 42

 

~ Truth will lead you out of darkness because it is in illuminating ‘what is’ that you then may in the very next moment, find your path again and into the light.  ~

 

💜

 

This episode picks up where we left on last in our discussion of the five Yamas – moral disciplines that are recorded in the ancient philosophical texts of the Yoga Sutras and here I dive into some ‘Q and A’ on the topic of truth.

 

Truthfulness or ‘Satya’ is the second yama or limb of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and this moral vow holds many secrets for how we can free ourselves from our suffering.

 

There are many ways that truth finds you. As much as some may avoid truth’s yearnings you can never avoid or deny its huge revelations.

 

I’m going to let you in on a huge secret to what will always bring joy into your life and for what will always reassure you – to live honourably – to feel supported in your decisions – and to always guide you along a right path.

 

Satya the Sanskrit word for truth is the definitive ground. It is what supports and upholds all of your faithful decisions. It is truth that compels you to seek change and to honour what you stand for and believe in.

 

Truth is how you create relations and connection and how you show yourself to be trustworthy and reliable. You need to know ‘what is’ true with accuracy and factual information in order to make the right and best decisions.

 

Truth is not always easy. It is not always what you want to hear or know especially if what is desired is something different. Let me say here that the truth will always be what you need to know.

 

You can work with truth. You can find your way to your right answers when you have the correct and accurate information.

 

Making a decision of any importance needs to rest upon knowing the truth.

 

 

Sending you great 💜 love...

 

Sharing the wisdom and beauty of divine love with you...

Namaste!

love, dorothy

Self-Discipline Is Your Superpower | A Real Life Client Story

The WISDOM podcast  Season 3  Episode 38

- Self-discipline is you acting on your greater conscience to do the right thing – for yourself and in any situation. -

💜

 

 

I think of self-discipline as a superpower because it is precisely what brings the inertia into the present moment for you to take action. It is what stops the chatter of the mind and overrides the old scripts that you replay with new language, the determination that says quite instinctively, “I can do this” and “I am doing this.”

 

Self-discipline could be exactly what you are missing and what keeps you from living your life in the way that you deeply desire.

So to ask yourself:How self-disciplined am I?’ Be wholly honest with your answer. and ‘Where in my life do I need to be more self-disciplined and how?’ These make great journal prompts for you to better self-examine the areas of your life that need self-discipline.

 

Self-discipline is so important that it is the single identifying criteria as to whether you get things done and in a timely manner.

 

Self-discipline stops the procrastination effect and the relinquishing of responsibility and it is the solution if you’ve ever struggled with unproductive or self-sabotaging habits that limit your potential.

 

In this episode we take a deep dive into the mechanisms that you need to build self-discipline; including how to up level your self-discipline in a way that supercharges your decisions and the actions you take ~ to support you in all of the best practices that you will live.

 

And if you are a parent, this episode will be helpful as it reminds you of the importance of setting the right example because your children will see the incongruity between what you say and what you do. Your actions speak louder than your words. Your children will learn the habits that you hold including a lack of self-discipline.

 

Each Tuesday at 8pm EST, I take you on a journey - inside - what happens in a session of Life Coaching and Therapy in the 'ask dorothy' series as we answer the questions that honour your path and your life.

 

 

To help you up level your self-discipline, please let me help you live your truth.

Shedding The Inauthentic Self

An Experience Into Wholeness

The WISDOM podcast  Season 3  Episode 37

 

~ The inauthentic parts of you are those parts that you are not happy with. ~

💜

 

Timestamps:

A Mantra:  0-1:56 |  Podcast Theme Intro:  1:57 |  The Inauthentic Parts Defined:  3:24 | How to Feel Whole and Complete:  5:41 | Reclaim All of Who You Truly Are ~ A Visualization Experience:  6:46 | Podcast Theme Outro:  23:14

 

This episode begins with a mantra to help you begin the energetic release of the aspects of you that you no longer wish to be ~ as you reclaim your wholeness with the behaviors, attitude, and beliefs that best represent your highest self.

Here we do some very cool shape-shifting towards living whole and of your authentic self.  

It’s time to break free from what aspects of yourself are inauthentic ~ that is ~ what has never served you.

 

We learn so much from the external world that does not serve who we truly are and all that we desire to be.

 

What traits, behaviours, mindset is not wholly kind and loving is also not authentic.

 

As humans we all experience moments when we are living out of our dark side ~ the inauthentic part of our self, largely ingrained with the ego’s need to be right, to be in competition with or better than another – and the desire to find approval and importance when really you already have everything you need to be monumental in your life ~ and true to your highest good.

 

“Release what you will no longer be – the antithesis of something is something better.”

 

Shedding the inauthentic self is releasing what is not wanted. This is replaced with a return to embracing what you truly are at your core. The new behaviours, mindset, thoughts, and actions all contribute to feeling whole and complete ~ as you are.

 

In releasing the cycles of your past, you are free to live whole ~ and true to yourself ~ all that is built upon what you are ~ that is pure goodness, grace, kindness, love, inspired to create and to thrive, and the ability to appreciate all of life’s beautiful moments in the present.

 

 

 

If you would like my help in your journey of living authentic, please reach out to me.  namaste! 🙏

 

Sending you great 💜 love...

 

Sharing the wisdom and beauty of divine love with you...

Namaste!

love, dorothy

Build A Positive Sense of Self:

8 Wildly Important ‘Best Practices' to Live By

The WISDOM podcast  Season 3  Episode 18

“You can check in with all of those who love you; whose love is unconditional and unwavering but the true feeling of certainty is born out of the love that you liberate yourself unto.” - dorothy ratusny

 

 

Your positive sense of self is the means by which you live - awakened to know and appreciate all of the aspects that define you; in the context of how you witness yourself in the world, self-honest and willing to live honourably – to do the right thing – because this is how you experience yourself as a being of love.

 

 

In psychology, sense of self refers to your conceptualization of the collection of characteristics that define you.

 

Personality traits, abilities and skills, your likes and dislikes, your belief system, your morals and values, what motivates you — how you view yourself in relationships and your perception of how others relate to and receive you. These all contribute to self-esteem and your unique identity as a person.

 

There are many natural and organic ways that each one of us develops our sense of self beginning with our early childhood. With the known research in neural plasticity, we have the ability to change our sense of self; to develop a more positive and certainly a healthier sense of who we are.

 

In this episode we discuss what it means to have a healthy and strong sense of self – one that exists because of the relationship you build and nurture with yourself. This is the most important relationship you will ever have. It begins the true awakening of what lies within – what you are beyond the physical and your mind.

 

Sense of self is achieved by developing the means by which you can be comfortable and content in your own company and to enjoy the companionship of your self.

 

 

 

Sending you great 💜 love...

 

Sharing the wisdom and beauty of divine love with you...

Namaste!

love, dorothy

The Birth of Meditation in Your Life.

The WISDOM podcast  Season 3  Episode 16

- Your inner sanctuary is what builds and sustains your outer life. -

💜

 

“Let’s make it official! You’ve just up levelled your meditation experience with me!”

 

If you’ve been listening to the podcast you know that I cover topics of spiritual and practical wisdom. This podcast is a medium for me to share with you what we might discuss in a client session of therapy and coaching, and what may be a recommendation for a new meditation for you to try...

 

I’ve also dedicated some episodes just for that – to share a meditation that is meant to evoke the space and the guidance to help you experience quiet moments and moments that are not so quiet because now you are hearing everything that was silenced before.

 

Meditation opens you to listen more deeply; to the world within. Meditation allows you to calibrate your inner world with the perceptions you live in the world around you. This means that the inner peace that you hold becomes the peace that you live; and in all of your encounters with others.

 

Meditation is to listen to the space that you exist in; your physical environment – the kids playing downstairs, the neighbour's dog barking as someone walks by on the street; the ambient music playing in the background, the furnace that just turned off. Maybe you have observed your brain – noticing what feels like neurons firing up; you can literally feel yourself awakening to your full cognitive functioning.

 

It could be the coffee but nonetheless, you are present to it; perceptive in ways that you have not noticed before.

 

So are you ready? Let's dive into together - let's birth this!  Your free form meditation practice experience of 5 minutes is about to ease you into one of the most incredible states of being.

 

This is your first step. Whether right now with me or after you listen to the rest of this audio, let’s together witness the space and time of now for five minutes. Begin here because in five minutes your whole life can change.

 

 

If you would like to experience other guided meditation with me, you must check out The Wisdom Archives: a digital sanctuary of guided meditations, mindfulness musings, spiritual teachings, and best practices for your mental wellness.  Enjoy the free content here and then subscribe.  Your monthly membership is your access to everything here!  New content is added weekly!  Namaste! 🙏

 

Sending you great 💜 love...

 

Sharing the wisdom and beauty of divine love with you...

Namaste!

The Snow Globe Effect: Transformation and Change | A Real Life Client Story

The WISDOM podcast  Season 3  Episode 9

- A special episode for anyone who has faced the ending of a love relationship -

If you are listening because you have recently gone through a life change that was or was not decided by you; it can easily be overwhelming. It can cause you to question your life and what choices you have made and whether you need to rethink everything.

 

Change is being imposed upon us all of the time.  Our lives become more abundant through the change sought through desire, growth, opportunity, new thoughts, and actions.  Some change when we label it as: bad, unjust, wrong, only makes it more difficult to accept and navigate as a life experience that is causing us to break open; to think and feel and live beyond what we have - until now.

Therein is the snow globe effect - our world as we know it – shaken upside down for a time; not forever.  Then as we watch in anticipation and wonder, we see the snow fall; filling all of the space inside the snow globe, delighting us in the magic of what we are witness to; creating a beautiful scene with nothing more than the simple action of movement; of changing the form of what already is -to reveal so much beauty.

 

In this episode I share the story of my clients Harold and Delia; and how heartfelt desire and self-honesty is necessary for the change that becomes our personal transformation.  Join me!

 

 

Each Tuesday at 8pm EST, I take you on a journey - inside - what happens in a session of Life Coaching and Therapy in the 'ask dorothy' series as we answer the questions that honour your path and your life.

August 22, 2021

p r e s e n c e

The WISDOM podcast  S2  Bonus Episode 3

 

Here I offer the ways in which to think about presence during meditation and how to live in a state of presence in the moments of your life.

Presence teaches you how to willfully enjoy life’s moments, how to allow them in; to accept what they have to offer; to flourish in the experience of them, and to trust that everything by means of each singular moment is meaningful; each moment is significant.

 

When you practice presence, you become attuned to what is around you. You become more aware of the inward dwelling space of your inner being; and what allows you to witness yourself – your true nature – as the purest aspect of what you are.

 

Try this simple practice of presence for a moment with me. Close your eyes. Focus on your breathing. Soften into what you feel. Notice your heartbeat beneath the hand that you gently hold unto your heart center.

 

Presence is about joining in the moments of your life as they are already unfolding; and riding the wave of each moment; being one with them.

It is in this way that the practice of presence opens you. It draws you into the richness of the life you are living; and for seeing and experiencing more.

 

Sending you great love....

💜

Namaste🙏
