Breath… the essential element of life. It is the first thing we take when stepping into the world and leave while stepping out of it. In this span, we take zillions of breaths. But, during this time, do we ever realize its connection with the mind and body? Do we ever notice the influence of our thoughts and physiology on the breath? Do we ever think how changing the breathing pattern can do wonders for the mind, body, and soul? Yes, that is right. Learning the art of controlling the breath can be great in improving one’s overall well-being, and this can be done through Pranayama.
Life doesn’t always go as planned and quite often it takes us places we never thought we’d end up. Sometimes it can be draining and downright disappointing, while other times it can be going well and leave us feeling on top of the moon.
Yet more often than not we come upon people who always have something to complain about, no matter how large or small that ‘something’ is. How many people do you know complain about something at least once a day? How many times do you yourself complain about something, if even to yourself, in your own mind?
It’s human nature to want more out of life and to aspire to greater heights. To yearn for new people, places, and things and to achieve our greatest potential. Yet at the end of the day, it boils down to happiness. How happy are you, truly?
In order to improve your life you must first realize it’s value. Sure it can be tough and at times, downright cruel, but even the bad times have their weight in worth. Suffering through states of boredom, depression, trauma, anxiety, stress, or anger can be utilized as a catalyst.
These misery-inducing thoughts contribute greatly to our evolution and help steer us toward more mature states of being and personal transformation. There is duality to everything and the sooner we can perceive the negativity as something other than useless, debilitating, and unnecessary – the sooner we can use it’s dark gifts to help us overcome our own internal suffering.
If you’re reading this and are already doubtful that metaphysical, supernatural powers exist, your chances of tapping into these powers yourself become next to impossible. Peter Pan wasn’t entirely off his rocker when saying it’s necessary to “think happy thoughts” in order to fly. Developing, nurturing, and mastering superhuman type abilities is not impossible – though incredibly difficult, what it mostly takes is an unshakable, unwavering belief in oneself. A belief in your ability to unlock the hidden inner aspects of your consciousness in order to develop it’s potential.
The aura is essentially one’s field of energy around their physical being. As heat waves can often be seen vibrating off pavement, aura’s work in similar ways. They radiate from the human body and for the most part, are unable to be seen, unless by someone skilled at looking for and noticing them. Whether by a skilled practitioner or someone whom was born naturally able to see them.
The aura is made of pure energy, fueled by the atoms in the cellular structure of the human body, and can radiate anywhere from an inch or so upwards to a few feet depending on how healthy (or clean) one’s energetic system is.
We are but a tiny speck of dust flying with force and velocity through the cosmos. We could be flying about aimlessly, knocking into other planets like a game of pool or a round of bumper-cars, yet we do not. The planets seemingly direct themselves in a particular, methodical way amidst the chaotic, outer-lying darkness. Thus to say they don’t have an impact on guiding our course, not only through the cosmos but also upon each of our lives individually, is hard to imagine.
The planets rotate the Sun which rotates the center of the Milky Way Galaxy, which is also traveling through space at sights unseen. Our main supporting star within this galaxy is the Sun from which we all know and love, thus as we rotate around it’s brilliant beams of light along with the other planets, they influence our every day lives in various ways.
Welcome to the new 12-step program, a way of reprogramming your life for the better using the power of the planets in conjunction with astrology. Each planet represents it’s own meaning, as does each zodiac sign – thus by tapping into the powers at play you may completely transform your life and manifest the results you desire.
Yoga meditation is exactly that – practicing the art of meditation and yoga at the same time, combined into one solid practice. Essentially meditation is already (or soon becomes) a staple part of doing yoga. This is because focusing the mind and engaging a meditative state is a great way of enhancing and strengthening yogic practice. Yet even though meditation greatly enhances yoga, yoga is not necessary for meditation.
One can simply remain seated or lying down to reap the benefits of meditation – yet to take your meditation and yoga skills to the next level and strengthen both one’s core strength as well as mental fortitude, yoga meditation is what you seek.
The list of meditation benefits could go on for days. Not only the mental, psychological benefits that meditation is most known for, but the physical, emotional, and spiritual benefits as well. Through practicing daily, weekly, or even monthly meditation anywhere between 10-20 minutes to an hour or more, one could potentially transform themselves on each of these levels.
Life is busy yet we make time for what’s important to us, always. Decide how, when, and where you can fit meditation into your lifestyle and prioritize it’s importance as much as possible. What have you to lose except for everything meditation helps us release?
