Change Your Attitude

Sunday, June 27, 2010 6:58:47 AM PDT

 The easiest way to change your mood or your state of mind is to change your attitude about it. Close your eyes and remember how you feel when you are doing something you love. Did your posture change? What about your breathing? Does your body seem lighter? 

   When we are engaged in something that makes us happy, we become more like children, we get filled with the joy and the wonder of that moment. And then, the moment changes, because it always does. As a result, the beautiful and the light qualities of joy go away immediately. To retain those positive qualities for as long as you wish, you have to learn to recreate how they feel inside your body.

  How does joy feel like? Close your eyes and imagine. Deepen your breathing, drop your shoulders down, lift your chest up, raise your head up high, allow your walk to be lighter and watch your attitude change right then and there. Watch your mental state becoming lighter,more expansive, happier, more luminous.

   This exercise can be applied to any feelings. Next time you catch yourself experiencing an emotion, note where in your body are you feeling it. Note all sensations and physical manifestations of it. Note your breath, your body. Then, whenever you'd like to recreate that emotion or attitude, close your eyes and actively and purposely bring on its physical characteristics. You can experiment with feelings, like joy or freedom, or mental states, like creativity.

  You can bring this "attitude play" with you to the yoga mat, invoking different states in different yoga poses and noting where in your physical body are you feeling them the most. Where in your body do you feel pain? Do you typically feel pain in the same areas? It usually indicates "stuck" energy patterns. By releasing the attitude, which causes those areas of your body to tense up, you can release your aches and pains, both physically and emotionally. Most importantly, don't forget to play: this exercise is fun!

Shower of Loving Energy

Wednesday, June 16, 2010 4:50:23 AM PDT


Starting your day with a shower is a wonderful way of cleaning your physical body. Your energy also needs a cleanse when you wake up. There are many yogic techniques of breathing exercises, meditation and visualization to help you feel stronger, more clearheaded and more focused.

Today, we will learn a very simple, yet extremely effective one: the shower of loving energy. Shortly upon awakening, close your eyes and visualize yourself under a shower of loving warm energy, coming from the sky and hitting your body at the connection pulse zone level –right at the top of your head. This energy can be of any color. White is the most neutral one, gold is the color of spiritual wisdom, purple is the color of connection to the Higher Source. You can also experiment with bright colors, such as blue, which is there to give you peace, or red- the color of earthy vibrant energy.

 Imagine the energy going through your body, washing out all negativity and everything that no longer serves you. Imagine all negative thoughts, patterns, ideas being washed into the Earth. In turn, visualize the shower of energy giving you back the love and acceptance of the universe. Visualize this love filling every cell of your being, making you lighter

 

Repeat this exercise every morning and after every situation, which leaves a negative impact on you.
