Lucy St. John / Holistic Integrated Health
After spending 7 months in India, learning from different yogic traditions, masters and peers, I came back to Canada with a state of consciousness that the yogi’s call Cosmic Consciousness. It was the first concrete experience of Ascendance I had and, it lasted…a few months.In experiential terms, it meant that when I looked into the eyes of another person, I “knew,” not intellectually but actually “knew“, that they were me just looking back at myself in a different form.I was completely vulnerable to what the moment presented, I was constantly learning. I didn’t know how I came to live in this consciousness. It wasn’t from the ashrams I visited, it was the entire experience of traveling in India that required a foundation of trust in my instincts, intuition, heart and mind.
Coming home to Canada became a much bigger challenge because I began to lose my heightened state of consciousness and fear and doubt began re-appear in my life. I had to integrate what I learned and who I had become.
Luckily for me, a Vedantic teacher arrived in my life to help me articulate, maintain and continue to build a more meaningful personal relationship with myself whilst living and facing the distractions of the West. I’d probably be living in an Ashram somewhere or going back to India every few years if I didn’t start to do my personal work with the frameworks of Vedanta to help me.
I believe that life is your Ashram.
You gotta bring your best and get into the game of life before it’s over.
