Sat Nam Rasayan
Sat Nam Rasayan is a healing practice that is unique to those of us who have practiced Kundalini Yoga. Unlike Reiki, which channels energy through the practitioner to the client, Sat Nam Rasayan uses pure consciousness and acceptance of the practitioner to smooth out the tendencies of the client.
What does this mean? Just as with our ancestral healing, where we bring to light the lineage of stories we have carried with ourselves which end up causes us distress, Sat Nam Rasayan reveals to us the tendencies we have which keep us sick. Gaia, as a Sat Nam Rasayan (SNR) practitioner, tunes into these energy patterns and creates a space where the patterns become relaxed and may just evaporate, be swept away or become “deactivated.”
Sat Nam Rasayan – Healing in the Sensitve Space.
Gaia is a Sat Nam Rasayan practitioner in the tradition of Guru Dev Singh, who is the ambassador of Sat Nam Rasayan healing, brought to us originally by Yogi Bhajan. He is the world-respected authority on this healing science. Gaia studied with Guru Dev Singh, Hari Simran Singh, Hari Simran Kaur, Gurumantra Singh and others in workshops and classes to become adept at this art. The glossary from Guru Dev Singh’s website tells us a lot about the quality of this deep healing art:
- Condition – Anything that is placed between the practitioner and the event is a “condition.”
- Consciousness – The capacity of the practitioner to be aware.
- Empty space – Somethings in the sensitive space which has no sensation.
- Equalize – Recognition by the practitioner of all the sensations happening, including the recognition of “all things being equal.”
- Hold – Holding the space contains a certain area in focus, intensity and intention.
- Individualize – The practitioner comes into relationship with the sensitive space, the current event and intentionally narrows the focus of relationship.
- Intensify – The capacity of the practitioner stabilize the sensitive space, the event and the sensations.
- Limits – The physical manifestation of the sensation of discomfort.
- Proposition – Any point of reference is a proposition (a thought, visualization, color, memory, etc.). These are the conditions to reality.
- Resistance – A feeling of being uncomfortable, dense. Resistance is “a proposition to the reality that holds you in one tendency.”
- Sacred Space – A certain state of consciousness which produces the transcendent consciousness, originally delineated by Guru Ram Das (the 4th Sikh Guru).
- Sensitive Space – The particular field of consciousness where certain awareness begins. The body is used as the mandala or honing device.
- Tendency – A habituation, pattern, karma that results in sickness.
Here is the formal definition of Sat Nam Rasayan from Guru Dev Singh’s website: “Sat Nam Rasayan is a healing that is based on consciousness that has the capacity to become transcendent, to modify the environment. We don’t use tools, we use the consciousness. Sat Nam Rasayan is a very simple system. It is based on the quality of the human consciousness that allows it to become transcendent. Transcendent means that, through your awareness and only through your awareness, you can produce an effect in an event, in an object. What we do is, we make our own consciousness stable, we recognize that there is a space we call the Sacred Space, we relate with that specific space and then, through our awareness, [expanding] our awareness, we modify the relationship and we modify (improve) the event….”
A Sat Nam Rasayan session with Gaia works on a very subtle level. It is best to schedule a cluster of sessions, either distance or in person, and to not mix this with a combination of other mixtures. For best results, for example, continue with whatever you have been doing if you like, but don’t add other practitioners and methods for a period of time so that the purity of this work can have the most benefit.
