Learn How To Breath!

Learn How to Breathe! 

Breathing is key to yoga practice and to meditation. Its what brings the poses to life and gives yoga its flow. The idea is to keep your awareness on your breath continuously as you move in and out of a pose or when sitting in meditation.

When we learn how to breathe properly the mind and body benefit tremendously. The breath quiets the mind and keeps the focus present. It also oxygenates the body and with more oxygen we feel physically better.

The following are some simple breath ratios to consider during yoga practice or simply in meditation.

1. Relaxing effect: Inhale for count of 4, hold for 1 count and exhale of count of 8 and hold for 4 count.

2. Balanced effect: Inhale count of 8, hold for 1 count, exhale 8 count and hold for 1 count.

Try these simple breath ratios and see how relaxed and balanced you become.

Show Me the Money!

Show Me the Money!

So who wouldn't want more money right now. Let's face it, money is simply another form of energy. With that being said, when was the last time you evaluated the energy of your money? Why not start from the beginning and take a look at how your environment aligns to money energy. Can you walk into your home or office and feel the essence of wealth? Well if you can't, then it is time to make some changes. Here are a few areas to get the energy flowing towards wealth.

1. Clean it up or throw it out! That's right, it's time to let go of the "stuff" that is stifling money luck. Focus points include front entrance, north, northwest and southeast areas of home of office.

2. Paint it! A fresh coat of paint does wonders to lift the energy and create a wealthy feel. Choose the color of MONEY for the southeast areas and the color of GOLD for the northwest. 

3. Let it flow! Invest in a beautiful water feature and get that money flowing into your bank account. Water out front should flow towards the structure instead of away from it. You want to capture the funds not give them away.

Start with these simple changes and I know the phrase, show me the money will soon become I've got money!

The Sage in YOU

 The Sage in YOU


Very profound point by the sage Bodhidharma

The fools of this world prefer to look for sages far away. They don’t believe that the wisdom of their own mind is the sage. 

The sutras say, ‘Mind is the teaching.’ But people of no understanding don’t believe in their own mind or that by understanding this teaching they can become a sage. They prefer to look for distant knowledge and long for things in space, Buddha-images, light, incense, and colors. They fall prey to falsehood and lose their minds to insanity.

Inspiration To Tackle Your Lofty Goal

 Inspiration To Tackle Your Lofty Goal

One of the greatest sages of all time, Pantanjali has this to say:

 “When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”
― Patanjali

Take that inspiring quote and fuel your mind, body and spirit with it. There is nothing you can't accomplish today!
