Thank you to Jacqui ilovekundaliniyoga.co.uk. for letting us share your recent post on Akal, heartfelt and fascinating.
Akal Akal Akal
In Sikhism, the word Akal is chanted after a soul leaves the body to help reassure and to encourage the soul and its journey.
Akal means immortal, eternal, timeless, infinite and gives the soul freedom and peace to move on.
Although Kundalini Yoga is not a religion, the language and many traditions and beliefs are tied into Sikh Dharma in the way traditional Hatha is to Hinduism.
And there are many crossovers between both.
Kundalini Yoga teachings say that after a person has left their body, Akal should be chanted and the soul has to leave the Earth’s electromagnetic field by the 17th day of passing, or it can be difficult for the soul to leave the Earth and it nay get lost or stuck here.
The teachings about death and the 5 Blue Ethers are fascinating and beautiful.
I am not Sikh and not sure what I believe, but I am passionate about Kundalini yoga and teaching it and my mum knows it is important to me.
In the UK, we rarely have proper seasons now and we haven’t really had snow in London for a few years.
When I pray I don’t ask for specifics. I just ask to be granted with what we need to be happy, healthy and fulfilled. But in the summer I always cheekily ask for sunny blue skies and in winter, I ask for snow…
The winter of 2014/2015 was no exception, but the snow never came…..
My beloved Mum died on Fri 16th Jan 2015… I would often talk to her after she left and would say-‘oh please Mum make it snow for me’
On the 17th day of her passing, I awoke and opened the blinds to this!!! A thick carpet of pure white snow which had not even been forecasted!
It only lasted until lunchtime, then it all melted and was gone. It was the only snow we had all winter but as far as I was concerned, my prayer had been answered – it was all the proof I needed and if there was any doubt in my mind about there being life after life, then that doubt left me that day❤️🙏🏼😃
