The Beauty and Power of an Atma Kriya Refresh Course


Some people are very consistent and practice their sadhana on a daily basis while others have a ‘sometimes here, sometimes there’ relationship with their practice. Sometimes, we all get stuck in a rut of not practising at all.

I didn't think that this would happen to me, but it did. I didn't have any excuses for not practising. It just happened. Missing one day of sadhana suddenly turned into two days, three days, weeks and then months. The more time I spent thinking I should get back Into it, the more I didn't practise. I started getting frustrated and became agitated. I got caught more and more in my mind and overthinking everything. 

I shared this with another Atma Kriya Yogi, who humbly said this happens and encouraged me to take an Atma Kriya refresher course. He said it might motivate me to get back into regular practice. A few days after the refresher, I started practising my Atma Kriya and immediately started to feel the effects of this priceless sadhana again. My energy levels started to rise. I was getting more things done in my day and I really started to feel the kriya again. 

Ideally, you wouldn’t stop practising even if you lose motivation. You would keep practising, at least a little, and power through it. But it’s also important to remember that it happens, but spending your time thinking about getting back into it without making any effort doesn’t accomplish anything.

One must train the mind by performing sadhana which Guru has instructed with faith and trust as it makes the mind serve one's higher nature.

Attend group AKY practice or refresher courses. They are there to support you and assist you in your sadhana practice. It’s never too late to be re-inspired or get back into it. 

For me, Atma Kriya Yoga is life itself. This sadhana is something I can't do without. It's a part of me and it's a part of everything I do. It's like trying to breathe without oxygen. 

Faith is in our nature, we only should not go against it, but rather explore it more, rediscover it more and more, until the "miracle of faith" becomes natural as breathing.
