Serene Sunday !!
Body, Mind, Energy and Conciousness
"The flow of energy through a system
acts to organize that system."
(H. J. Morowitz: Energy Flow in Biology)
Yoga and meditation are learned in steps. First, simple poses; later the methods become finer, the effects more subtle, the meditation alive and creative. You can choose from the many different methods of yoga and use them as you wish.
The learning process can be experienced as a development. It is not a question of who is the most supple or whether you have interesting experiences. Rather, it is about attaining harmony and becoming one with yourself.
Sounds like a bunch of crazy talk,
I know, but really, you will be so happy
that you tried this.
The basic stretches and breathing, benefit everyone!!
By using breathing exercises (pranayama) precisely and regularly, the nervous system can be strengthened, tension and depression can be removed - along with bringing the two brain halves into a better balance.
German doctors from Hanover and Colonge have conducted laboratory studies on teachers and students. They concluded that there is no method or medication as effective in normalising the blood pressure as the breathing exercises in yoga.
Through breathing exercises, you get to know your energy and, with a new sensitivity, you can begin to control it. This way the yogi can regulate the functions in the nervous system which are normally outside the influence of the will.
The effects of this show in daily life as increased creativity and concentration. When the energy flows are purified, it’s hard to block mentally and give up.
The use of attitudes (Mudra) and locks (Bandha) relaxes and increases awareness in certain areas of the body ‑ the so called Chakras. These have a special importance for the harmonic unity between body, mind and energy.
Through the Mudras, you also become aware of the relationship between your state and the energy field of your body. If worries or sickness have limited your energy field, the Mudras can bring it back to its full and natural form.
By regular use of the poses, the body grows used to being relaxed. The blood circulation is increased in the inner organs and their functions are regulated. Some exercises touch upon specific areas in the body (eg. eye exercises and back exercises). Others influence the body as a whole.
