we breathe provides a window into your current energetic state. Simple
breathing (Pranayama) practices can function as tonics to invite calm
and equilibrium. Before you start you should take a moment to check in
with yourself. Become aware of how you are breathing, how each
inhalation and exhalation feels.
Nadi Shodhana Pranayama
This is a great breathing technique that relaxes your body and mind while boosting your alertness.
Curl your right ring finger and pinky fingers into your palm.
Join your middle and index fingers and point your thumb upright.
Rest your left hand on your thigh.
Gently press the extended two fingers to seal off the left nostril as you inhale for 4 counts through the right nostril.
Close your right nostril by pressing down with your thumb, releasing the left nostril as you exhale out of it for 4 counts.
Close the left nostril, open the right, and breathe out of it for a count of 4. Practice 4 - 6 rounds.
Feeling anxious? Do you feel the need to settle the mind? Mantra meditations are a wonderful way to raise your vibration and discover your higher consciousness. Mantras use the quality of sound to raise the frequency of our physical body.
Om is the most powerful of all the meditation mantras. It is known to be the first sound of the universe representing the infinite nature of the cosmos. It literally gave birth to all the other sounds.
Try chanting the sound of "om" for 5 or 10 minutes daily and you will automatically raise the vibration frequency of your body and calm your mind. You can incorporate your chanting meditation with prayer and your exercise routine. This is a perfect way to adjust the subtle energy centers of your body and mind for better physical and mental health.
