What’s behind it?

Key factor for deep and significant change is our ability to learn and see events in a new light and from a new perspective. This in turn leads to more conscious and better decisions, in everyday moments as well as in serious life decisions.

In the Yogasutras of Patanjali, the foundation of yogic philosophy, there are already explanations about our clouded perception, which results in blatant misinterpretations. These misinterpretations are the basis of many decisions that can have painful consequences.

Reality is always the product of our perception.
Perception, in turn, is determined by our experiences.
And our experiences determine what we perceive.

The interplay of Karam Kriya, the powerful knowledge of Kundalini Yoga, and the neuroscientific approach of NeuroMeditation allow you to reflect and adapt your patterns of thinking and behavior to the reality of the now.

As needed, consultations are complemented by further techniques of

  • Milton H. Erickson, Roy Hunter, and Bruce Eimer,
  • the timeline technique and
  • Dr. Hans Carl Leuner’s catathymic imagery experience.
What’s behind it?

All our feelings, passions and actions are determined by hormones. The same applies to our health, physical and mental condition.

You’re not a born buzzkill or a born quitter:
We, you are your biochemistry.
Our ability to love, understand, accept, and even our mood, our hunger, thirst, desire, ability to concentrate, our ability to reproduce, our resilience, our way of living relationships, our sexual potency, all are connected to our endocrine glands and their function.

Constant stress, poor diet, lack of exercise, wrong lifestyle, menopause and andropause are some of the main causes of loss of hormonal balance.
A consultation clarifies your life context and hormonal balance. You will receive concrete suggestions for small changes with a big impact.

Karam Kriya, the science of applied numerology, helps coping with change. Applying universal information we know as numbers allows for a personal, professional and spiritual check. Karam Kriya unfolds as a conversation that supports the soul.
Karam = structures that take us through time, but with no other result than repetition.
Kriya = The completion of these structures and the creation of dharmic structures. Dharmic structures carry the consciousness. They use the time to go beyond the time.

“If we know the nature of time and the tension it brings to our lives, we can rise to it.”
________Shiv Charan Singh

Karam Kriya is a unique approach to using the time we have been given wisely, expanding our possibilities, and realizing our full potential. It is an ongoing practice of redesigning our physical and mental space to achieve this goal. This negotiation always takes place in relation to other people.
In counseling, Karam Kriya is an engagement in relation to change that encourages the soul to unfold itself on its journey through time and space. Karam Kriya calls for awareness and recognition of opportunities and choices. The goal is to dissolve karma and give life to Dharma.
Karam Kriya is inspired by Kundalini Yoga and was further developed by Shiv Charan Singh. Based on archetypal qualities and dynamics represented in numbers, Karam Kriya provides an interactive diagnostic tool for change. The date of birth, for example, provides information about basic life patterns.
Karam Kriya is an approach to understanding the influence of words and actions in your life, and through this process of learning, making your own story transparent.
Once the past becomes transparent, it is easier to initiate the necessary changes in thinking, beliefs, and actions so that you can turn your history into a vehicle to guide you to your destiny.

Karam Kriya – Become what you are

Change requires conscious communication.
In a counseling session, it is the key component that shows ways to your basic skills and qualities. Knowing one’s potential, in turn, allows one to leave behind limiting habits and thought patterns.
Besides the communication itself, the date of birth is a window to upcoming change, it is a window to one’s calling as well as to one’s karma.
Sometimes we find ourselves in structures that provide security – but it is not fundamental, satisfying security.
This security is the result of the unconscious repetition of familiar structures: family patterns, social imprints, cultural imprints. But we are evolving, the world is evolving. As soon as we get older and more mature, the old structures no longer correspond to the conditions of life.
They turn into a prison of false security.
Karam Kriya shifts the seemingly immovable of these circumstances and structures, giving the power to change circumstances, seek support, and reasonably work through restrictive interpretations of these circumstances.
It is a soul-friendly conversation in which ways are revealed to act in such a way that the inner intention is fulfilled. Karam Kriya describes the process of moving from a habitual life to a life of awareness, in which the right habits serve the unfolding of the true Self.

Kundalini Yoga has its roots in ancient wisdom passed down through thousands of years of oral and indirect experience. It supports the awakening of inner intelligence for health, happiness and spiritual vitality.

Kundalini Yoga is known for its transformative effect. It enhances physical strength and endurance and improves cognitive function, emotional fitness and spiritual connection. Many people describe the experience as exhilarating, euphoric and powerful.

Who is Kundalini Yoga suitable for?

Kundalini Yoga is suitable for all people of all ages. If you have physical limitations, there are a variety of alternative exercises and positions.
Kundalini Yoga offers a holistic technique that can be used by people of all faiths and from all walks of life. In contrast to renunciate yoga traditions, Kundalini Yoga offers a path for people who are in the middle of life: with relationships and family, social responsibilities, worldly worries and obligations.

The practice

This practice focuses on the movement and transformation of energy. There is no single practice or sequence. Instead, the practice focuses on kriyas, each of which is a specific sequence of yogic techniques and meditations to produce a specific result in consciousness. This can be something very concrete (like better digestion) or something more subtle (like an open heart). Each Kriya (which means “action” in Sanskrit) includes detailed instructions and usually includes most of the following techniques:

  • Asana: postures
  • Mudras: hand postures
  • Pranayama: breathing techniques
  • Mantras: intentional, repeated sounds
  • Bandhas: muscular contraction of a specific area of the body
  • Drishti: Directing of the eye focus
  • Shivasana: relaxation at the end of the exercise

Kriyas are often composed of several components and become a complete action for a specific purpose when practiced in the given order.

The technique

Kundalini Yoga is known to support the change of self-limiting habits.

  • It is a system of transformation designed to release blockages in the reserves of unused energy within us.
  • It is designed to balance the hormonal system and revitalize the nervous system.
  • It works to build, clear and balance the subtle systems of the nadis (energy channels) and the chakras.
  • It includes hydrotherapy, breathing exercises and other best practices for optimal health and functioning.

When the energy moves freely through the energy channels and chakras, it stimulates the mental, physical and spiritual health of the person. A clarity emerges that connects perception, thinking and intuition.

Improved brain performance through meditation

NeuroMeditation is based on understanding and optimizing brain function. NeuroMeditation creates the conditions for an expanded perception, whereby improvements in life can be initiated and sustainably established. A key aspect of this involves changes in thinking and behavior patterns.
NeuroMeditation provides the basic knowledge about the tasks and functions of the brain, which is the central control center for life, survival and experience. The more flexible the brain can adapt to rapidly changing external conditions, the faster it interprets stimuli correctly, the healthier (mentally, emotionally and physically) we are.
The theoretical aspects are complemented by specific meditations and breathing techniques that specifically support and improve the functioning of the brain. This refines perception, providing valuable tools to help make better decisions: both in everyday moments and in important life decisions.
