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. Amazing to know and feel God’s love all around us and within us, every cell and space within our body, Esoteric yoga is a powerful modality in connecting us to the living stillness within our body.

  2. Johanna I have read and commented on your blog before, and today I felt to come back to it again and I’m glad I did because I found this part
    “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.”
    It was the last five words that brought me to a halt that what I do also affects God too be honest I had never thought about this before and it feels huge to feel the enormity of this in my body. And too be honest has given me a new marker to live by.

  3. Great question ‘how do I confirm my divinity?’ I feel to take this and work with it with the knowing that this comes from my body, the choices I make and the appreciation I have for moments where this is confirmed through the way I am, live and my movements ✨ thank you

    1. What an amazing question – how do we confirm our divinity every day? This is definitely a topic we don’t consider enough, so what a great experiment to take into life.

  4. Great to read this again, there is literally unending love of a magnitude we could barely comprehend surrounding us constantly, gosh we must work hard to both keep it out and not be one with it. Considering it’s also we are in essence it must take tremendous energy to not be and express love.

  5. That we are surrounded by God, in God is not something we often consciously consider and when you do, even for a minute the question becomes how do we live, not as a stricture but as an honouring of us and the fact we are from God.

  6. This is super cool – what if the key to knowing who we are is through our movement and our bodies? What if every little movement could be a precious reminder of exactly and precisely who we are?

  7. I have been recently swapping with a friend, an Esoteric Yoga session, and it’s been fantastic to feel how this half hour session helps to bring more clarity and presence to the rest of my week. Little but powerful things like how I get into bed have completely changed and what movements I am in through out the day have been magnified due to this wonderful modality.

  8. “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” – this is so beautiful, and I can feel my whole body nodding a big yes. Space is not empty, it is what holds us in and together, it is love.

  9. Thank you Johanna , that is truly beautiful. Can connect to what you offer us here – to start to understand that we have a deep divinity inside – and that it is a matter of choosing to connect.. Connecting to who we are from our hearts. A beauty that is beyond word or thought.

  10. Dropping deeply into our body; dropping deeply our body in surrender mood allows us to connect to a beauty that is innate in us and that has no end. Doing so is deeply honoring to both ourselves and God.

    1. I like what you say Eduardo, I can feel the deep quality of beauty in my body during my yoga sessions. It’s taking that sense of beauty out into the world, to a world that currently rejects such beauty because humanity doesn’t want to be reminded of how lost it actually is and it finds such pure beauty confronting.

  11. I have felt in my Esoteric Yoga sessions that God is in the space I feel within and through me. When I feel areas of tightness or heaviness that are stuck, I can feel I am not letting God into that part of my body and instead choosing something other than love. It is in the space that I feel an absolute connection to everything, like there is no me, just oneness

  12. Esoteric yoga is such a powerful modality in that it offers us the opportunity to explore our connection to our stillness within through our bodies, in which we come to know and feel our divine inner-sacredness, our union in and with God, so we can bring to life this quality that defines who we really are in essence. This is our natural way of being and the more we live in connection to who we are the more freely we live moved by our divinity.

  13. ‘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.’ So true Johanna, this is a beautiful reminder of the divinity felt when we are in deep connection with our body, the Esoteric Yoga allows us the space and grace to experience this depth and quality and then to live this in our everyday lives.

  14. It all comes back to our choice and where we align ourselves to. We can have the internal critique that is always there ready and poised to tell you how many ways you can’t or are not doing something or we can choose to realise ourselves, let go and surrender ourselves to whatever we are seeing or feeling and keep coming back to this surrendered place of stillness. It doesn’t matter what has happened or who has done what it all comes back to how we are, how I am and what I am putting out into the world.

  15. This line ‘jumped out’ at me this morning. A powerful and humbling reminder that I am /we are never alone and always held in this great love whatever events are going on around us. A moment of stop to appreciate the space that is always present for us to move and be present in and with
