Wellness Wednesday: Sun Exercises- Yoga Sun Salutation

"What's your morning routine?"

Exercise is needed to keep your body running properly. A great exercise is the Sun Salutation or Surya Namaskara. It only takes 5 minutes of your time. It is a collective of poses that each come with a meaning and function. It's a daily practice that you do in the morning and night. Usually you practice it outside in nature where you can send gratitude and absorb the sun's energy but feel free to do it anywhere.

Some benefits are:
* Strengthens the entire digestive system.
* Invigorates and restores the nervous system.
* Energizes the heart and regulates blood pressure and heart palpitations.
* Promotes healthy lungs and breath.
* Stimulates glandular activity.
* Strengthens the muscles in your upper and lower body including your abdomen and back.
* Reduces excess fat on the body.
* Improves kidney function.
* Encourages proper posture.
* Brings clarity to your mind.

How to:
* To begin, stand in Tadasana (Mountain Pose). Distribute your weight evenly over both feet. Establish a slow, steady rhythm for your breath. Find your center.
* Next, inhale and stretch your arms out to the side and overhead into Urdhva Hastasana (Upward Salute). Reach your heart and arms to the heavens, sending your greeting to the sun.
* As you exhale, hollow out your belly and fold into Uttanasana (Standing Forward Bend), connecting down into the earth. Keep your legs firmly engaged.
* Inhale and lengthen your spine forward into Ardha Uttanasana (Half Standing Forward Bend). In this pose, the gaze is lifted, the spine is extended, and the fingertips can stay on the floor or rise to the shins.
* Exhale and step or lightly hop your feet back behind you into Plank Pose. Your wrists should be flat on the floor, shoulder-distance apart, and your feet should be at hip distance. Take a full breath in as you lengthen through your spine.
* Exhale and lower into Chaturanga Dandasana (Four-Limbed Staff Pose), keeping your legs straight and pushing back into your heels or bringing your knees to the floor. Build heat in the center of your body as you hold this challenging posture.
* Inhale and carve your chest forward into Urdhva Mukha Svanasana (Upward-Facing Dog), directing that energy out from your heart. Pull your shoulders back and open your collarbones. Engage your legs but relax your gluteal muscles.
* Exhale and roll over the toes, coming into Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward-Facing Dog Pose). Ground down through your hands and feet as you lengthen your spine. Remain here for five breaths.
* On your fifth exhale, bend your knees and look between your hands. Then inhale and step or lightly hop your feet between your hands, returning to Ardha Uttanasana.
* Exhale back to Uttanasana, surrendering into the fold.
* Inhale, reaching your arms out wide to your sides and coming to stand through a flat back. Feel a renewed sense of energy as you draw your arms overhead into Urdhva Hastasana.
* Exhale and return to Tadasana, your home base. Remain here for a few breaths, feeling the movement of energy through your body, or continue on to your next salute.
* Then repeat with the other leg.

Make sure or take breathes and do each pose with intention to get the full experience.

Wellness Wednesday:

Today’s message: “Eat well, get much-needed sleep and go outside. Nature heals the worlds anxiety.”

Story Time: This weekend I took some time to go out into nature. I needed to get away. My body was speaking to me. It said, “your eyes are getting heavy. Your head is tight as gravity is pushing both your temples in. Your heart is heavy and stomach feels full but empty on the sides. No love in your handles. Your legs are static and energetic as if they want to move but go limp with exhaustion. Your back is slopped from constantly keeping it from the grounds gravitational pull. Your so grounded, your caving in under the pressure. Its time to rest. Your weary. Posting daily has drained you. Your body is waiting on charging. Calling all the stars that are in your gravitational alignment keeps you up at night. So much energy spent but its time to receive some back. You’ve been paid in knowledge but its time to get paid in peace.” Its my best currency.

As the words flowed so went that reality, no need to get a rain check, I was happy to receive it. I am also happy to see I finally am able to pay. As a consumer I get the choice to consume and I choice knowledge. Knowledge of self. So I grabbed some rest and my body said, “It’s nice to meet me. Carefree me. Tranquil me. I’ve missed you. You look well rested from your travels. Take a seat and rest your mind and feet. Stay awhile. Shine your light on others. They can truly benefit from your light. You’ve been gone so long, I barely recognize you. I’m happy that you are back though. I see us making magic together. I have been lost in the abyss they call Society. Mainstream propaganda had me trapped. I’m happy to remove the 3D glasses and meet you in the 5th Dimension. Ascension…Game time, First quarter…New rules…Home court advantage…Lets get ready to rumble…I have a safety net and velcro gloves…Clear skies and zero chance of rain.”

Rest is needed to replenish the mind, body and the spirit. Your body is your connection to this reality. Also only eat things closest to the earth as possible. It’s the closest thing to what you are made of. Eat natural, be natural, anything else will turn you into something unnatural. You are not a bee, so why eat honey. You are not a cow, so why drink milk. Fast. Food grounds you to the earth and fasting lifts you up, releases you. Cleanse your body of the toxins and start fresh. Find a way to be strong around others who are still eating produced things. Distract yourself. Be prosperous, abundant and contribute your time to helping others. Do things of purpose. Plant seeds. Be the thing you want to become. Impact, impact, impact. Plant, plant, plant.

Retreat into nature, express yourself, find yourself and bring it back to show others. If you went off and let that job and car go for a weekend or two. Lived off the land or close to it your body would appreciate it. It becomes instinctual. When your body is tired, your ego is in control. You do things that you wouldn’t normally do or say. Ego comes and spirit leaves. Once you notice that start to happen. Go get rest, ease your mind. Take a vacation, even if it is short. Replenish your soul in another environment. See through your own ego trap.

How to love without ego

Ego can cause people to hold their pride too high, miss opportunities and push away great, lasting relationships. Ego is something we are all born with. Something that takes time to find and control. It took me awhile and now I’m here to tell you that it’s the best thing I’ve ever done. When you let go of ego your world is turned around from negatives to positives. Thinking of things that are greater than yourself is amazing. Realizing that we are all united and interconnected through mind, body and spirit is amazing. To see yourself in everyone that crosses your path. To find, love, empathy, and compassion gives you so much inner peace. I vibrate so high since I’ve let go of ego and turned to love. The world seems so beautiful, filled with wonder, excitement and new beginnings. I look forward to what will happen next, who will I meet next?


Who

Will

I

Meet

Next?


I see people as people living their lives the best way they can with the resources that are available to them. Regardless of your past, present or future expectations, everyone is beautiful. I’ve learned to meet people a the level they are at, not forcing my point of view, not pushing anything on them. Just letting others be whoever they choice to be. Letting others make their own decisions depending on their own inner guidance. We all receive messages and have our own ideas. Not every is meant to be on the same path or live out their worldly experience like others. We are the universe living a life reintroducing ourselves to itself, who am I to judge?


Who

Am

I

To

Judge?


Concurring ego involves going deep within yourself, learning yourself and accepting all things about you. The good, the bad and the ugly. Finding light within the darkness. Concurring your yin and yang and finding balance within your heart. Self love projects love. What you are, you attract.


What

You

Are,

You

Attract


Once you find love for yourself, you can find love for others. Go out and love today, it’s the first step to healing.

Brandi

Let me see you do that yoga!

Hello Spirits,

I hope your day is vibing in a positive way! Today we are going to talk about yoga. Yoga is a ancient term which derives from the word “yogi” which means yoking, which is a term for oxygen. It is used to unify the mind, body and soul. It is also used to relax, stretch and to stay fit. Yoga is about “your practice”, it is your own personal experience. Your practice is always different from the next persons practice. It can be difficult but it can also be the best thing because it involves you letting go of ego and allowing the mind to see that no one is better than anyone else. There are many benefits of yoga, it helps mood, helps people with diabetes and asthma and also strength training. Other benefits of yoga are:

  1. Increased flexibility
  2. Improved respiration, energy and vitality

There are also many types of Yoga. There is:

  1. Ashtanga: this is ideal for the most seasoned yoga professionals. It is a challenging style that consists of a variety of poses. It requires strength and endurance.

primary

I have tried a variety of these different techniques and they are a very usual way of experience. I actually recommend doing them for I would tell you to lift weights or run. I also would recommend that you consult a doctor before you decide to try them.

There are somethings you will need while doing yoga, like a mat, towel/blanket and blocks. You may also want to dress comfy while doing yoga. I recommend wearing tank tops, leggings, shorts, tights and no socks. Your feet can better grip the mat and also the ground feels better.

I also wanted to include 6 great online yoga resources:

  1. Yoga Trail
  2. Yoga Journal
  3. Do yoga with me
  4. Yoga With Adriene
  5. The Yoga Room
  6. Yoga by Candace

I hope I have helped you spirits get closer to your higher selves with this information. Gratitude for visiting, until next time, namaste loves😘!

 

 

Whats on your plate?

Hello Kings and Queens!

In the last post I introduced you to Dr. Sebi and his healing foods and herbs. I also mentioned that you had to eat healthy to reap the benefits of a healthy body. I know that most people think that eating healthy means the end of the world. It isn’t. There are many recipes that involve eating healthy foods and making the foods taste great. I have been on the alkaline way of life for two months now and it has been a great experience. I don’t think I have ever cooked so much in my life. I get thrills off finding new recipes and experimenting with new favors. I really feel like a kid in a candy store. I included list of recipes that I found really easy to make and would help you with your salty and sweet cravings.
