5 little known ways to have fantastic energy!

Five little known ways to have fantastic energy!

  • Drink a big glass of water before you get out of bed. This helps to bring hydration into your body and in particular into the large intestines which have their peak performance time between 5am and 7am (according to Traditional Chinese Medicine/ 5 Element Theory/ Acupuncture). If your body is hydrated the colon does not have to absorb water from the bowel and therefore one can pass and get rid of any waste easier and smoother :-). This creates space (literally and metaphorically)for the NEW day!

Color energy meditation

A color energy meditation:

....close your eyes and imagine a red ball of energy spinning just at the end of your spine your coccyx and let that deep vibrant red energy gently expand at just that one spot, strengthening your sense of security and feeling of connection to your primary family... now imagine an orange energy spinning in a ball, round and round at your belly button area, spinning and softly expanding at just that one spot, healing relationship issues and inspiring your creativity.

My greatest challenge- surrender!

Surrender...Not just bending my bones… As I walk into the warm yoga room at east west yoga in Newmarket I am glad to be here. Why you might ask? You are going to be tortured and be incredibly hot…yap! I look at it this way: Every morning again this is my chance to clear my mind, to clear my body from any blockages accumulated by thought processes, self talk, experiences, triggered memories, emotions…Being a Kinesiologist I know how certain emotions can weaken a muscle or a muscle group and meridians ultimately the immune system and organs.

Improving my yoga...

I have been experimenting with applying meditation for chakra energy and self hypnosis into my Bikram yoga practice.
It has been very helpful in stabilizing my big toe which likes to lift off the ground and changes the whole dynamics of all poses.
As soon as we start class with the breathing exercise in Bikram Yoga I imagine a powerful red energy coming from the tip of my spine and is flowing down into my legs and feet through the soles of my feet into the ground. This red energy in my mind is turning into roots holding , surrounding, stabilizing my legs, my toes, my coccyx.

Affirmations to create the days after 21st of December.

Today I was reminded about gratitude and to keep the heart open to all the beauty and grace every day brings, as every day is a gift. I would like to share this short video from Moving art-Louie Schwartzberg: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nj2ofrX7jAk

The end of the year also brings the end of an ancient calendar which has been widely discussed. The Mayan calendar is ending and for many this is a time of anticipation.
For me it is the time to keep my heart open and to embrace and cherish every person, every animal, every bit of nature, very moment in awe, as if it was the first and the last time I am going to experience it.

Benefits of positive visualizations

Evidence that visualizations can help healing is well documented. Creating an inner vision offers the mind major advantages:
Your muscles experience electrical impulses that correspond to the physical event you are imagining and neuromuscular templates are developed preparing you physiologically for the real thing. Which means, for example, if you are imagining yourself kicking the rugby ball exactly through the polls your brain will create muscle memory just as good as if you were actually doing it, with the added benefit of leaving the failure out of equation, increasing confidence as well as efficient positive muscle memory.

Relaxation versus Stress

Relaxation versus Stress
  1. What happens in our body and mind if we are stressed, worried or even anxious?
  2. Why is it so important to relax and to calm body and mind?
  3. How can you learn to relax and to calm your body and mind?

1.What happens in our body and mind if we are stressed, worried or even anxious?
The relaxation response is exactly the opposite of the stress response in our body.
When we experience a physical or mental stress our body produces "chemistry" to enable us to fight or to run away.

Why holistic treatments?

We are more than our physical body. That is why I offer holistic treatments at Balance for life. I would like to explain a little bit more about my view of holistic health and I would love to hear from you and what you think about that.
Our body follows the mind every second, every moment we make decisions, decisions about how this feels in relation to you and the sum of your experiences. The body creates the chemistry to fit those thoughts. What if we constantly willingly or unwillingly surround ourselves with people or situations that we find challenging and stressful in some way, triggering emotions like anger, fear, sadness.
