Simple to Complex. The simplicity contains the complexity.
When you practice yoga you become more sensitive. Say you always go on a hot date on Friday nights. You eat a lovely meal and drink a few lovely glasses of wine.
Then one day you start going to yoga. Soon you find yourself loving how you feel after class… so you buy a punch card. You start showing up 3 times a week. You love it. The food makes you bloated. You think that might be coming from the wine. What the hell… you think. Due to abyhasa or repetitive evolutionary practice your cells start to soften up and become more accessible to prana.
As the cells get smarter from the prana, they start to output what is outdated or toxic. Yes — you are detoxing or purifying yourself. In yoga this is referred to as tapas, or purification of the physical, mental and spiritual think psychosomatic system. The more you go to class the more your consciousness moves into the field of the subtle. The more subtle energy in your cells … the more sensitive you become.
Many modern-day-yoga lovers go through a phase where they find this newfound bioelectrical sensitivity annoying. You cultivated more consciousness in your cells. Your cells dig that. Your cells got more intelligent, more organized, more charged with energy and simply more connected to the source. You started to transport more consciousness, which enabled you to transmute more consciousness to build structures that were smarter structures. When you showed up and practiced repetitively with informed alignment, you plugged into the laws of how energy works on a more subtle level.
Your organism got more aligned and integrated into a more functional system. Your body-mind systems got smarter. And you tapped into the dynamic experience of optimal health. Then you went on date night. To your regulatory system this was a less intelligent choice for a few reasons.
To get why — you need to know the chemistry of the natural law of the human body clock. From an Ayurvedic perspective lets look at what is happening behind the scenes.
This give us insight into why habits that were groovy in our past create a residue in our present. First off, turnover energy pitta is strongest in the midday. That is the best time to turnover food into smaller molecules of nutrients and energy. When you go on date night at the time of day when turnover energy has another agenda.
The turnover energy is dormant from pm and then goes on a housecleaning mission. You asked your Pitta to stop cleaning house and to deal with digestion. It did a half-assed job at both the house cleaning and the digestion. The wine further put a load on the nightly blood cleansing process. Because your system is less tolerant of imbalance now, you get a 2 am wake up call to help you decide to not put the extra load on your liver next Friday Night. Saturday morning you woke up to a dirty, and maybe even bloated house. The laws of sacred chemistry are inviolable. Meaning… you pay when you violate them.
No one gets away with anything. Often we may think someone is getting away with someone. Your partner may be able to put away a huge meal at night and drink beers and remains thin as a rail. When and how a person sinks their own ship is the real story behind no one getting away with anything.
Hyper-caffeinated-friend might have trouble meditating or unplugging from her laptop. And not just in terms of taste… in terms of how it feels in your blood.
This level or perception of cause and effect is what sacred anatomy is all about. You can perceive clearly the cause and effect. You can feel it in your system. The diurnal human body clock is a law of nature. Just as human bodies are proven to produce more bile midday to digest our food, our bodies goes through cycles of metabolism pitta , catabolism vata and anabolism kapha at specific times.
Around dusk, anabolism kapha kicks in to get you to chill out and take rest. In wee hours of dawn catabolism vata kicks in to get you up and moving. The first two limbs of the eight-fold path of yoga sutras - the basic text for classical yoga - are examined in this spiritual guide to the practice of yoga. Foundational to all yogic thought, they are considered to be the guidelines to the yoga way of living that free individuals to take ownership of their lives, direct them toward the fulfillment they seek, and gain the skills to choose attitude, thought, and action.
With the clarity of a physicist and the compassion of a gifted healer with 15 years of professional experience observing 5, clients and students, Barbara Ann Brennan presents the first in-depth study of the human energy field for people who seek happiness, health, and their full potential. The spirit has an unlimited capacity for self-healing and divine connection.
This enlightening recording teaches you to view your health through a spiritual-biological lens to see a new picture of how the human body heals. In 12 step-by-step sessions, Dr. Caroline Myss presents every phase of her groundbreaking work on energy medicine, including the "map" of your body's seven energy centers, its relationship to sacred texts and divine power, and principles of intuitive diagnosis. With his expert teachings, philosophical insights, and pragmatic imagery, world-class yoga instructor Tias Little turns the anatomy of the physical body into a tool for navigating the subtle body.
If you spend considerable time doing yoga, you begin to see that it is about much more than just the body - the practice of yoga in fact reveals that the body is in no way separate from the pyschospiritual forces that animate it. Tias Little here provides a way to understand these forces as they relate to an integrated yoga of body, mind, and spirit.
The seven chakras-or spinning "wheels" of energy located along the spine-offer a powerful system for personal transformation. In two sessions, you will learn how you can tap into your energetic system to improve your physical, mental and spiritual well-being. Yoga's popularity is soaring, but its widespread acceptance as an exercise for physical fitness and the recognition of its health benefits have not been matched by an understanding of the emotional, intellectual, and spiritual development that the yogic tradition can also offer. In Light on Life , B. Iyengar explains this new and more complete understanding of the yogic journey.
Learn about kundalini, chakras, prana, and how to use them to realize your higher capabilities. If your goals are to enrich your spirituality and enhance your mind and psychic abilities - maybe even gain enlightenment - then this audiobook will guide you toward them. The Bhagavad Gita, "The Song of the Lord", is the best known of all the Indian scriptures, and Easwaran's reliable and accessible version has consistently been the best-selling translation. Easwaran's introduction places the Gita in its historical setting and brings out the universality and timelessness of its teachings.
Chapter introductions give clear explanations of key concepts in that chapter. They included angels, seeing God, and being in Heaven. But, believe me, not the way you might think.
What comes next sounds like a riveting memoir filled with uncensored moments of joy, pain, wonder, and humor. Except, this book is so much more than that. Seane's real purpose is to guide us into a deep, gut-level understanding of our highest Self through yoga philosophy and other tools for emotional healing The Yoga Sutra is the living source wisdom of the yoga tradition.

Unseen but very real energies that influence every direction your life takes? In her renowned work as a medical intuitive, Caroline Myss examined the patterns of hundreds of archetypes that exist in human consciousness, and found that each of us has a "sacred support team" of 12 primary archetypes.
Once identified, these archetypes allow you to discover your highest purpose, what she calls your "Sacred Contract". The Art of Vinyasa takes a unique look at Ashtanga yoga as meditation in motion that produces profound inner change.
