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. 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.

  2. 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.’

  3. 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.

  4. 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?

  5. 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.

  6. “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??

  7. “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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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?

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. “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.

  14. 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.

  15. Sure inspires me to take up another Esoteric Yoga program. But then, experiencing our grandness, our light, our divinity, is not through this program but because the way we move on a moment to moment basis.
