ep16 – Loving the one you’re with, with Sirgun Lindsay-German
In this episode of Unbreakable I talk to my beloved Kundalini yoga teacher Sirgun Lindsay- German.
Once a week I show up on my mat in front of Sirgun as she inspires me to push through an entire cycle of mental anguish , physical pain, resistance then to surrender and if I am lucky – break through. As we discuss in this interview, kundalini is excellent preparation for life in general and in particular, marriage. Our intimate realtionship are not always going to feel wonderful and expansive – we are not always going to be aligned and connected, we may even be filled with hate and anger at times – but things cycle and process through. If we stick with it we break through. Sirgun has broken through many things – from her reflex to leave when things got tough, to her neediness for love. She finds herself now 17 years into her marriage, with a cheeky rekindling of her love affair with her husband.
Sirgun shares with us:
+ How Kundalini helped her find herself as a new wife and mother
+ Why her children are no longer her priority – her relationship with her husband is
+ Why we can get so triggered by the masculine sun energy and how to love it instead
+ The importance of embracing our feminine moon energy
+ How being passive aggressive made her PMS much worse
+ Her commitment to loving the one she’s with
