Practice to raise your energy level and your capacity for love and joy

Today I want to share with you a wonderful FREESeasonal Qigong Series by Robert Peng. 

I've been practicing the seasonal meditations now for 6 month and I absolutely love it. 
Robert has a wonderful detailed explanation on his website and he also provides the free videos of his practice.



He offers it for free because according to him "My Qigong Master, Xiao Yao, felt that Seasonal Qigong was an extremely valuable practice, and throughout the years I spent with him, we practiced regularly. So you may be wondering, "Why give away something that is so precious for free?" The answer is simple. Since Seasonal Qigong is time sensitive, it is practiced by many people at the same time. And a basic rule of Qigong is that the greater the number of people aligning their energies simultaneously, the more robust the Qi field becomes."

This month, he is talking about "Major Heat Empowerment".




He says "The time of the seasonal cycle that coincides with Major Heat r…

"King of fruits" works better than cholesterol drugs

Well, summer is on its peak, and we all knows that this is time to relish the great taste of Mangoes. The “king of fruits” has been around for at least 6,000 years.
Ayurveda mentions many benefits of Mangoes in ancient texts. It is sweet in taste, acts as aphrodisiac, gives stamina to body, good for your heart, good in Vata dosha diseases, makes skin glowing and lustrous, improve digestive fire, coolant, and increase the quantity of semen. Research recently presented at a meeting of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB), for instance, revealed that eating mangoes every day can help moderate and even lower blood sugar levels, despite their natural sugar content. This is good news for people with type 2 diabetes who may benefit from consuming mangoes regularly as part of a low-sugar diet.
Similar research out of Australia found back in 2006 that eating mango can also help decrease inflammation and resulting high cholesterol, as well as block the formation of …

Rapid Relaxation Tips

Today I want to share two easy and rapid relaxation tips that work great.



If you're given to tightening up during the day because of stress, lack of sleep, a jerk for a boss, or any of the zillion other reasons most of us rarely relax, then try putting these tips to work.
I learned them, by the way, from a retired college psychology professor. Whoa!
Here's the first tip:
Controlled Breathing

The first rapid relaxation routine involvesbreathing in and out (9) nine times in three series of three breaths.
In the first series of three breaths, inhale  deeply and, as you exhale slowly,  say quietly or think to yourself, "Calm body." Repeat three times.
In the second series of three breaths, inhale deeply and, as you exhale,  say quietly or think to yourself, "Calm mind."
In the final series of three breaths, inhale deeply and, as you exhale, say (and do) "Smile."

And here's the second one:
Five-Finger Exercise

Breathing exercise to overcome all of your physical shortcomings

Ready to become Vital beyond Vital?  





Then, practice Surya Bhedan for 5 minutes each day for amazing results.

Breathing solely through one nostril can change your energy and mood.


Find a comfortable sitting position with the head, neck and back erect.

Place a piece of cotton (or hold it closed) in your left nostril and start

Surya Bhedan is a form of Right nostril breathing that must be added to your daily regimen if you are to overcome all of your physical shortcomings

Surya means sun, Bheda means breaking through something.

In Ancient Eastern Ayurveda Medicine it is taught that breath entering into the Right nostril is Pingala Nadi, which represents physical energy, and when one breathes "exclusively" through the Right nostril it is called Surya Bhedan.

This is an amazing way to increase the Pranic energy flow in your body 10 fold. 




It revitalizes the body, increases vitality, heals depression, eliminates anxiety and other mental illnesses. It can produce stunning results.

Best Yoga and Ayurveda Routine in Hot Weather
