Raising Vibration, Let’s Kick it up a Notch

Energy Healing 3 Comments

The journey of raising vibration, for an individual, or group of individuals is of vital importance for evolution.

But hey, it can be a fun topic.  While I regularly talk about raising my vibration in my life, the idea to post about it was inspired by an Ordinary Mystic.  It turns out there was a little web fun, so I thought I’d participate some.

Raising Vibration- Five Ways by Krishan 

  1. Daily Sadhana, early morning Kundalini Yoga practice
  2. Meditation, focusing on brining in more light through meditation
  3. Just say no to alcohol and other depressants, by definition they slow down your rate of vibration (this one is very challenging in our current culture)
  4. Spiritual Reading, get books, lots and lots of books on Spirit, Yoga, Healing, Ancient Wisdom etc. and read read read
  5. Participate in group work, yoga, meditation, kirtan…the group energy works for the benefit of all, the unit as a whole is able to receive higher energies, especially when a rather evolved individual is among its members
  6. Spend loving time with family and friends, brothers and sisters (okay i know it said 5, but this one is important too)

The more soul infused one becomes the higher their rate of vibration.  The higher the vibration of an individual, the higher the vibration of the group, or groups that individual belongs to.  The higher the vibratory rates of the groups within humanity, the higher the vibration of Humanity.  The higher the vibration of Humanity the higher the vibration of the Planet.  This trend keeps stepping up levels as we take a macro perspective to things.

Just think, this chain of events can all start with just 1.  The 1 becomes the many.

Yoga Provides Treatments for Depression, Anxiety and Epilepsy

Science of Yoga 6 Comments

That’s right, fight depression, anxiety and epilepsy simply by doin yoga!  As if we didn’t know this already ;-)
Gotta give a shout out to the Yoga Journal Buzz blog, for this post.

You can get the news release here.  Boston University and McLean hospital have been doin some research on the effects of yoga.

————————-

Using magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging, the researchers compared the GABA levels of eight subjects prior to and after one hour of yoga, with 11 subjects who did no yoga but instead read for one hour. The researchers found a twenty-seven percent increase in GABA levels in the yoga practitioner group after their session, but no change in the comparison subject group after their reading session….Our findings clearly demonstrate that in experienced yoga practitioners, brain GABA levels increase after a session of yoga,” said lead author Chris Streeter, MD, an assistant professor of psychiatry and neurology at BUSM and a research associate at McLean Hospital.”

The press release also comments that mental health effects a large number of our current population.  (Perhaps the Carter Center will someday have a Mental Health yoga program!
So while these insights are like no brainers to many yogis, the science applied is what is actually important.

If anyone from the study happens upon this I have the following suggestion to add to the study.  Take another sample of folks that have been doing yoga for sometime, have them simply read about yoga and see what the effects are.  One’s mind creates their reality, if one reads about yoga and goes through yoga processes in the mind, I suspect similar results could be achieved.  And now we are gettin into the realm of continual meditation.

Gotta love Yoga

Satya Definition

Yoga Glossary No Comments

Satya is also one of the Yamas, like ahimsa.

Satya is defined as speaking about what is true.  (One may get an interesting 5th chakra pulse when this occurs.)  As noted earlier here Sat means Truth, or Be-ness.  Now Satya is typically interpreted as not lying, and although this interpretation holds true it does not fully communicate the Truth of its proper definition.

When one speaks about what is True, they are speaking Truth.  This is how we may consider Satya.

Now we can take Satya to another level.  When one is integrated with the term Satya fully, we could say that which they speak of comes true.  Or, they have certain manifestation powers.  When we think about the concept that in the beginning there was the Word and the Word was with God, we have a higher level concept of what True Satya Is.

In order to speak the Truth, we must discover the Truth.

May your journey help you discover your Truth, and sound it forth.

Ahimsa Definition

Yoga Glossary No Comments

Ahimsa is one of the Yamas, or the 1st limb of the Yoga Sutras

Ahimsa is defined as not harming or non-violence. The concept behind this is to go back to a sense of love. Then to be in that space of love.
