Feeling the Divinity of God through Esoteric Yoga

During one of my recent sessions in my 6 week Esoteric Yoga program with Esoteric Yoga practitioner Vicky Geary, I experienced the most incredible moment where I felt that everything about life made more than sense to me in the most tangible way.

At the beginning of my 6 week program I didn’t know specifically what might happen during the program, but I knew what I wanted to focus on was to be around embodying stillness. By week 2, and after the support from another practitioner at a Universal Medicine clinic, I realised embodying this stillness meant to claim my delicacy and stillness as a woman and having it be there in every facet of my life, and especially in every way I express.

During this time I also listened to a Way of the Livingness audio about time and space presented by Serge Benhayon. One sentence stood out and it was around God being all the space around us, so when we are in the Atma of God, we are in his Space. From this sentence I got that we are always held by His love.

I felt a responsibility: if I am in God, that is, all the space around me, including the space and particles in my body – while also God being in my heart – then all I do not only affects me and others around me, but it also affects God.

So we are each then responsible for how we are and treat every cell and fibre of our own body… treating ourselves with the love, the delicacy, the tenderness, the gentleness and the care we are and we deserve.

During this last few weeks I have been able to ask and pose such questions to myself as – how have I been knowingly holding myself back from claiming/living the light of my soul in my body? How do I confirm my Divinity? When do I allow my delicacy to be there? And when and how do I reject my delicacy, my stillness and ultimately God if I am not allowing myself to be, or remain, with my heart or my natural way?

During the Esoteric Yoga program I was able to be more aware of my body and I got to feel a quality of presence in my ankles, a freedom and stillness in my knees, a lightness and playfulness in my shoulders, some tension in a spot on the back of my left ribcage, a bit of a holding and locked feeling in my right hip, feeling the sacredness in my uterus and that my light is far grander than any tension or issue that I may still have in my body.

The most incredible part of the session was the moment when I tangibly felt the light and grandness I am, and that every part of me holds this love. I felt my deep delicateness and the responsibility of sharing this all the time with myself and others. I tangibly felt the delicateness in my touch, the way I tenderly held myself and how gentle I am. Feeling this has confirmed my knowing that we are vehicles of expression and that we can be reflecting God’s love through our bodies and movements in how we choose to be, or not. My confirming of God is felt in the way I choose to be with my physical body.

Inspired by Esoteric Yoga, I have been able to feel we are all equally part of God’s grand love and it is our responsibility to reflect this divinity.

  1. This came up recently with an esoteric practitioner that we have a responsibility for how we are and in turn how we are we everyone else, this way of living with ourselves and everyone around us I don’t feel has been taught for a long time and yet it is very familiar. And surely if we all lived this way then the world would change because we were all accepting our responsibility to treat ourselves at least decency and respect.

  2. How would we live life if we all realised that the space all around us and between us was God’s body? And how preciously would we know and hold each other to be as held by that divine body?

  3. “The most incredible part of the session was the moment when I tangibly felt the light and grandness I am, and that every part of me holds this love.” I have felt this too, there is a deep settlement in the body that feels like I am at one with the Universe.

  4. In the hustle and bustle of modern day life stopping to feel and appreciate our innate delicateness, grace and stillness can be a definite challenge but the practice of esoteric yoga provides a solid way for us to do this.

  5. These are great questions to ask ‘How do I confirm my Divinity? When do I allow my delicacy to be there? And when and how do I reject my delicacy, my stillness and ultimately God if I am not allowing myself to be, or remain, with my heart or my natural way?’ I recently asked myself a similar question regarding my sensitivity and stillness in that do I appreciate these qualities within me and move in such a way that confirms them and allows them to just be and not only that but deepen them. Joyfully there is a lot for me to look at here

  6. Esoteric Yoga offers the opportunity to be with the inner stillness and to feel the Love of God all around and within you.

  7. A beautiful testament to the power and profound beauty and stillness of the esoteric yoga modality and the ability to deepen our awareness to feel the truth and divinity of who we are in essence and our interconnectedness with every living thing.

  8. Esoteric Yoga is supporting me to feel a depth of quality within me that is more important than anything I have so far experienced. I cannot be bothered to ague, defend or be right any more. I can now feel if something is true or not.

  9. A gorgeous sharing Johanna, esoteric yoga offers us so much if we are willing to go there, how amazing to know and feel the love of God in the space within our bodies and the space all around us.

  10. I have participated in Esoteric Yoga 6 weeks programme a number of times, but I still feel like I have only got to appreciate a fraction of what is in truth being offered. It’s such a simple modality, but it does something to our entire bodies – physical and beyond. It truly is amazing.

  11. “The most incredible part of the session was the moment when I tangibly felt the light and grandness I am, and that every part of me holds this love.” This is amazing and super precious I have felt these moments in Esoteric Yoga and it is like every cell in your body comes alive. It truly is a magnificent moment to feel God in absoluteness.

  12. Esoteric Yoga offers us a stop moment to deepen our connection to ourselves and to God. The art is to then take this connection into every part of our lives, our work, our home, our relationships, so that everyone gets to feel this too.

  13. I love your investigative approach, what are all the small ways and nuances that we fight what is innate to who we are? And – is it not worth investigating these, digging them out and letting them go for good?

  14. We do seem to have a problem accepting God, that we live in his atma which is the space all around us. Is it possible that we have allowed certain religions to dictate to us what and who God is, to such a degree that we have been lied to on such a grand scale that we have forgotten that he lives within us by the very particles we are made up of. We live within God and he lives within us he is the very air we breath.

  15. Esoteric Yoga is also known as the Yoga of Stillness – my experience of this beautiful modality is of it being simple and yet profound, offering a powerful bridge back to the innate stillness within that expands far beyond being just the session, to be a living way in daily life.

  16. Spot on Johanna and a great reminder for us all – ‘Feeling this has confirmed my knowing that we are vehicles of expression and that we can be reflecting God’s love through our bodies and movements in how we choose to be, or not.’

  17. Very beautiful Johanna, ‘..I tangibly felt the light and grandness I am, and that every part of me holds this love.’ Esoteric Yoga is an amazing, it is a powerful modality that is exquisitely simple and easy to apply anytime and anywhere.

  18. We seem to have a problem accepting that God is within us and that we are very capable of being love ourselves. Question is: if we are capable of such great act, why hold back that which we are by origin?

  19. Through Esoteric Yoga I too have felt the most incredible stillness and lightness, which has helped me treat myself far more gently and tenderly than before.

    1. Same here Sally, the movements in Esoteric Yoga supports me to reimprint and become more aware of the way I move throughout my day. The ability to connect to stillness is extremely powerful and I love it every time I allow myself to connect to it.

  20. “I felt a responsibility: if I am in God, that is, all the space around me, including the space and particles in my body – while also God being in my heart – then all I do not only affects me and others around me, but it also affects God” – so true Johanna, and to actually live this truth is to live life. I too realised that we, everyone, in all our activities all live inside the womb of God. And that just like renting a property from a landlord and dutifully keeping that property clear, clean, tidy, in working order is the requirement of any property tenancy agreement, that all 7 billion of us have this same tenancy agreement and hence responsibility. When we break that tenancy through being irresponsible, disobedient, ruinous, careless, reckless, unclean as we could in a property, then we are only doing all this inside God’s womb aka Atma. God is the ultimate loving and observant landlord and so how are we squaring up on this account at the end of our tenancy??

  21. “if I am in God, that is, all the space around me, including the space and particles in my body – while also God being in my heart – then all I do, not only affects me and others around me, but it also affects God.” Wow this brings a whole new depth to our responsibility, if every step, every move, every thought is taking place inside God then every single little thing we do matters.

  22. Esoteric Yoga is truly an amazing modality, it can confirm that God is not just all around us but inside us as well, and that we can live connected to the divinity we are a part of and come from. Yoga’s true meaning is union and Esoteric Yoga is union with all we are truly within, the divinity we come from. This has certainly been my experience of Esoteric Yoga as well.

    1. Yes, I have experienced this too, but when we choose to connect to stillness more and more, this feeling can be our normal and the distractions are then more likely to become less appealing.

  23. The stillness and steadiness I have experienced in my body during esoteric yoga sessions has been delicious and priceless and has really shown me what is possible, so now I am in the process of asking myself is it possible that I could live with this quality in my body all the time during the day, not just in a yoga session. My experience so far says that yes this is possible but it will take time and practice for my patterns of not living with stillness are very old and ingrained.

  24. Two things jump out from this blog … ‘How do I confirm my Divinity? ‘ … and how do we, we do this through our bodies and of course that them asks how are we with our bodies? So a great inspiration to ask how do we take care of our part of the Universe, of God, our bodies?

  25. The power of Esoteric Yoga is its simplicity – re-connecting with our innate essence and godliness through movement. Each session reminds us that the quality of every movement is our choice to make: it is not in grand gestures we change ourselves and inspire others but singular delicate movements practised consistently.

  26. Its interesting – if we scan through the body we can feel little pockets of discomfort, tension, pain. This is all valuable feedback on how we are living – our bodies providing a map that can be quite easy to follow. And yet, we have so many distractions that divorce us from this feeling, games that we play that rob us of a birthright until such time as the body says :ENOUGH’ more loudly and we are forced to listen.

    1. We say that, but it’s interesting how many of us actually don’t even consider it. The fact that our body is the first to signal if something is not right, yet we ignore the messages because we don’t give it the credit it deserves, we don’t even think it’s intelligent because our impression is that intelligence is all held in the brain.

  27. “Feeling the Divinity of God through Esoteric Yoga” – it is through Esoteric Yoga that I get to feel not just the way I am relating with myself but also the truth of myself and so of God.

  28. Esoteric Yoga continually presents us the opportunities to re-connect to the exquisiteness of what lays untouched within us. We also get to feel all of the things that we place in the way of this exquisiteness. Its certainly not always easy to feel this and we can think that this complication is who we are. But its simply what we have allowed, bought into and believed is true. There is no complication in this exquisiteness, just an offering of a simplicity in life, that is always held completely in the arms of God.
