Why we need the Power of Meditation

The lotus flower symbolises spiritual enlightenment and rebirth. Each night it disappears into the murky water only to re- bloom the next day pristine and pure. It is a symbol of peace and serenity.
Hold the image of a lotus flower in your mind. See humanity awakening cleansed and enlightened to a new dawn. A new beginning. A Golden Age.
You can enhance your meditation by chanting loud, or simply in your mind;
OM MANI PADME OM
My soul is the lotus flower of the Universe.
Let its vibrations and intent send healing waves throughout the earth.
Let there be peace and harmony for all. Om Shanti Om 🙏

It is so good the be back in the studio after lockdown and connect with each other again. Here are some quick timetable updates.

In light of the current global situation I am offering a:

FREE Meditation class every Monday at Noon. Starting Monday 8 June.

On Tuesday 23 June there is a Peace March in Wellington to protest the recent Covid19 Response Bill. As I will explain in this newsletter uniting humanity to bring change through our Collective Consciousness and a united Peace Movement is the way forward. So there will be another FREE Meditation class at noon to support in spirit.

Until now I have kept my Whispered Secrets website and FB page free from the political drama. However, I feel it is time to make a stand because as yogis and spiritually minded people we have the tools to make a difference – Meditation and the power of our intent.

During lockdown I disappeared down the rabbit hole. I had too many unanswered questions. Government policies didn’t seem right especially as more and more evidence started coming to light but none of it was discussed, or aired, on our news networks.

Did you know that 1% of the population if they are coherent and have the same thought at the same time – can transform the other 99% of the population. Even though that 99% don’t know what the 1% are doing. That is so powerful! Your thoughts right now can change the energy field around us. Collective Consciousness can shift an entire civilisation. In the link below – Dr Bruce Lipton shares his insights.

The vibration of our planet and ourselves is rising. Some of you may be noticing the difference already. For earth we have seen the extreme weather patterns and social unrest in many countries over the last few years. On a personal level you may have experienced heightened sensitivity such as smell, hearing or thinking of someone and then you bump into that person or they call. You might be trying to find information and the answer pops up the next day on your feed, or in an article.

What this means is that we are becoming more powerful with our thoughts and intentions. We are becoming more intune with each other. And with this ability we can bring positive change to our world.

Currently the 1% Global Elite are running our governments. They are promoting a continuous cycle of poverty and famine in third world countries. With their global greed and corruption they pollute and rape our resources. They instigate wars, unrest and violence. Pharmaceutical companies destroy our health. Vaccines poison and now 5G designed to lower our immune system and compromise the health of our bodies even more.

New Zealand is a beautiful country and she is being threatened by the Global Corporation. The following links summarises Covid19 Facts and an excellent article by a New Zealand Health Professional gives the implications for our country.

Knowledge is our strength because together we can stop the destructive wave that is heading our way. Standing as a global community we are stronger than the 1%. It may surprise a number of you that Donald Trump is actually fighting on our side and has instigated a number of measures to hold the Global Elite back.

Our part is to Unite as One Human Race – Humanity. With our Collective Consciousness we can transform our world to one based on equality for all.

Stand United in Peaceful Protests. Bring ourselves together in Mind and Spirit no matter where we may be in the World.

It is important that we rise above the fear and visualise all those things that make our world beautiful. See the world as you would like it to be.

What an amazing way to transform our earth. Believe in community. Believe in Harmony. Believe in Peace. Believe in Love for ourselves, each other, Gaia and all living creatures. Believe in a new way of living 💕💕🙏.

In Love and Light let us change our world for the better.

We are back!

Namaste

It’s been a long wait – 2 months but the light is there. Only Level 2 so in spite of what I intuitively feel – I do have to work within guidelines.

So our doors will open on Thursday 14 May with the regular timetable:

9.30 – 11.00am Monday to Friday

2 classes on Saturday: 8.00am and 10.00am

The studio has been given a good clean, with props sanitized ready to restart. Until we are able to completely return to ‘Business as usual’ I am proposing 5 people per class.

Please book your space via texting or Whats App. I understand that some may wish to wait a bit longer.

I hope you have all been keeping well and sane 🤪 I appreciate your feedback and suggestions. Please feel free to call, or message, as that helps me to gauge where your heads are at.

Aerial yogis please contact me directly via text and we can start to fly.

I will close with this video by Dr. Bruce Lipman which demonstrates how amazing our bodies are and I would like to share a message:

‘Love/ heart will always do what it knows to be right. It does not consider consequences. When we operate from the heart – we are part of our physical world but we are also connected to an infinite stream of consciousness. Our perspective expands.

When you do what you know to be right – you start living life and stop life living you.

LOVE is the absence of FEAR.’ Author: David Icke

Excited to be seeing you all again.

What does your tomorrow look like?

Namaste

This is it. We are coming out of the other side of lockdown. We have all had an opportunity reflect and one thing for sure – our planet has had a chance to breathe. It is possible to create the world we would wish to live in. This video is some of what I would love to see. Feel free to comment on what you would like. Keep it positive – Law of Attraction and let the magic happen as it ripples out ✨✨✨ #dreamscancometrue#Truth#Light#GaiaHealing#HumanityHealing #MadeWithRipl via ripl.com

Pleidian Heart Healing Meditation

In Memory
All Gave Some
Some Gave All

Namaste

Below is the YouTube link to the latest meditation and as it’s Anzac Day may it also be a dedication for those that sacrificed for our freedom, our home.

Todays’ session is invoking the healing energy of the star cluster closest to earth – the Pleiades. Also known as the Seven Sisters and the Healing Stars.

It is believed by ancient cultures that we come from the stars and that the Pleiadeans provide the blueprint for the human consciousness/Codes of Light that are hidden in our DNA.

Pleiadeans Light Beings carry the energy of pure love. The colour of this healing ray is blue. As you are guided through the meditation I will ask you to visualise a ball of radiant blue light representing divine compassion and love. As you are held in that light you will be guided through your 12 Chakras.

Then we reconnect with the heart chakra and spread that light to the planetary heart chakra – Glastonbury (originally known as Avalon) and expand it into the ancient ley lines from the Tor and around the planet.

For the meditation feel free to lie down supporting your body, as needed, so that your body can move into deep relaxation. Crystals are the perfect companions for your meditation.

I hope you enjoy the session and I welcome your feedback.

Om Shanti

Annie

Enhancing our Immune System with Pranayama

Namaste

I am working on another guided meditation for you all today and prior to that I wanted to touch on some of the positive effects of the yogic breathing practices.

Things like stress, lifestyle, diet, environment and lockdown all place a toll on our immune system.

By practising pranayama we are bringing positive life force into our bodies. Helping us to stay calm, soothe the nervous system and strengthen our immune system. Prana means life force, vitality, energy. Yama means expansion, length, prolongation.

Pranayama is the way to control the vital life force.’ The Spirit of Yoga by Cat de Rham & Michele Gill.

The following simple practice is called ‘Squaring off the Breath’. Apparently used by US Navy Seal Divers to help them stay calm and not panic if stuck under the water.

You can sit or lie for this practice. If you want to add another layer – place your hands on the hip creases as though you were putting your hands in your pockets. This is Jin Shin Jyutsu hand position 15. It means wash your heart with laughter. When the heart is burdened we can release the groin in order to clear/wash the burdens away. Freeing the heart to joy and laughter. It is a deeply calming position – one I often use to help me sleep.

Once you are settled comfortably – bring your awareness to your breath. Breathing in through the nose and out through the nose. Move your awareness to the navel and notice the in breath and the out breath at this point. As you breathe in the navel rises and as you breathe out the navel falls.

Just by observing your breath it will start to slow down. Now take 4 counts to breathe in. Hold the breath in for 4 counts. Take 4 counts to breathe out. Hold the breath out for 4 counts.

Repeat as many rounds as you wish. I would aim to do at least 9 rounds and then stay for awhile just observing the body and enjoying the stillness.

The whirlpools of the mind can be drilled by the breath” Patanjali

Violet Flame Meditation

Namaste

I thought I’d take advantage of the beautiful Pink Moon and the crystal grid which is still energising the studio and record another meditation for you.

This is the link:

Hope you enjoy. I’ll work on a few short classes. Unfortunately it takes about 4 hours to upload. Need to work out a way to compressed the file !

I hope you enjoy 🙏✨

Global Meditation Today 2.45pm

Namaste

I trust you are all keeping well during lockdown and enjoying some space to do those things that you never normally have time to do.

This week I have been busy spring cleaning the studio and have set up a large crystal grid in preparation for today.

There is a Global Meditation for us all to unite as one and focus on healing the planet and clearing Covid 19.

Time: 2.45pm

I have pre recorded a 40min meditation. Sorry I couldn’t do a live one our internet here isn’t good enough. It is the raw version so you’ll have to crank the volume up – didn’t get a chance to edit it. Downloading took way too long but it works.

Here’s the link on my YouTube page: Annie van Den Bergh Yoga Nidra Global Meditation

It’s a yoga Nidra style so you can lie comfortably. If you have any crystals you’d like to hold or place around you. That would be perfect.

And if meditation isn’t your thing then at 2.45pm do a random act of kindness: bake gifts, tend to the garden, connect with someone you’ve been meaning too. It all comes down to our intention.

I’ll be with you in spirit 2.45pm today 🧘‍♀️🧘‍♀️✨
