An analogy goes like this:  the mind and the body, are two sides of a coin.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]

Yoga is a term for an ancient India physical, mental, spiritual practice system,  which originated more than 2000 years ago.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]

There are many types of yoga, today in this article, I’m going to talk mainly about Hatha Yoga, which is considered to be the most influential Yoga in the world, with most practitioners.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]

1. Yoga provides a spiritual path where one can achieve inner peacefulness. [dt_gap height=”20″ /]

Yoga is imprinted associated by many westerners to be a kind of body exercise involving physical postures(asanas), mainly dealing with weight loss, smoke quitting problems, increasing the strength of the muscles and so on. [dt_gap height=”20″ /]
But more importantly, Yoga is one of the tools one can use to achieve self-realization, not only physically but spiritually. Better yet, you don’t have to be religious in order to engage in yoga.[dt_gap height=”20″ /][dt_gap height=”20″ /]
As people discovered what they could benefit from yoga: self-realization and awareness, in addition to physical and mental health,  Yoga has been back in vogue for several decades.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]
For instance, hatha yoga stretches your body to its full flexibility and harmony through different postures, followed by Savasana or Yoga Nidra— lying down, taking a rest, to wrap it up.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]
But here we go, this very last step is what all the previous steps are aiming for, this is just where the “authentic” yoga begins.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]
Yoga sets no religious threshold for an individual to practice. Nonetheless, the essence of yoga perpetuates the core of most of the religions:[dt_gap height=”20″ /]

The first thing you want to make sure about your body is that you should keep your 7 chakras balanced, clear of any energy blockage, try our 7 chakra associated jewelry and gemstone collection to rechannel the energy in your body.

2. Forget the Body [dt_gap height=”20″ /]

At first, yoga reminds you of focusing on your body by consuming and smoothing physical energy.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]
After performing the body’s physical limits by somewhat “odd” and exhausting asanas, utilizing those seldom-used muscles you are unconscious of[dt_gap height=”20″ /]
At that moment, you lay down your body on the ground, suddenly you no longer feel the existence of the physical body.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]
Have you ever experienced that non-existence of the body after it achieved total relaxation?[dt_gap height=”20″ /]
I believe most people have.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]
Scientific Research shows that the body and the mind are deeply connected. If you are struggling with obsessive or habitual thoughts that you don’t know how to get rid of,  it may be better to begin with relaxing the body.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]
The goal is for you to forget about your body.  When the body is no longer disrupting, subconscious emerges.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]
When the body reaches the physical extremes, the stillness of the mental relaxation and the tranquility is simultaneously obtained.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]

3. Release the Emotion[dt_gap height=”20″ /]

At that moment, some might experience a strong desire to laugh, weep or even burst into tears for no reason,  the images, sounds, or feelings.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]
Your mind is presenting completely personal and different experiences from one another, notice what happens emotionally, physically, and mentally. Whatever it might be, they are just something your subconscious wants to release.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]

Red Tourmaline is the organizer for the root chakra, Green Tourmaline can revitalize the heart chakra, manifests success and abundance, also can release the stuck energies coming from root, sacral and solar plexus to the heart chakra. Yellow Tourmaline releases pressure from the solar plexus chakra, organizing energies to streamline them into the upper chakras, preventing the energies from dwelling in the lower chakras and getting stuck

4. What you have to do is accept things as they are[dt_gap height=”20″ /]

Allow it to happen, if you want to cry, let the tears drop, try not to analyze what causes this insecurity, depression or sorrow, if you do, you might get caught by the ego again.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]

 

These emotions might result from childhood issues, family conflicts or a painful relationship, no matter what it is, it doesn’t matter anymore, no need to feel the urge to find out the reason.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]

Why are you seeking the answer from the past while the present is the only thing that really counts?[dt_gap height=”20″ /]
This is a major difference between the principles of modern psychology and Yoga. The reasons are simpler than we think:[dt_gap height=”20″ /]
  • Resistance creates reinforcement[dt_gap height=”20″ /]

Next, what’s mort important is do not resist. Resistance creates reinforcement, I know the emotions seem hard to burden, but these feelings have been waiting for years to tackle with.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]
Let them out. View them as an observer, create some distance between you and the pain body.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]
  • Obsession is another unwise tactic[dt_gap height=”20″ /]

For some other people, they go to the extreme of infatuation with these feelings, get obsessed with negative emotions( they do want these emotions unconsciously), they become so addicted to it that the notion of being a victim is constantly fed with Self-pity.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]
with no obssesion
On the flip side, this fuels the cycle of repeating what you’ve always suffered.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]
The sorrow will be lingering as long as you immerse yourself in your feelings and after performing yoga, since it feels so good to justify your failure in life.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]
But sometimes it is so hard to admit we are reluctant to pull ourselves back out from the memories, so we make excuses, blaming the wound was so deep to heal.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]
Some might describe it as a colossal black hole inside of his heart, constantly dragging him down.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]
Trust me, this is no more than an illusion. You are the person responsible for your life. All you need to do is take some guts and make a decision.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]
Neither of the two methods provides you an open-minded perspective to self-realization.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]

5. Acceptance is the only prescription.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]

Next time if you sense any kind of emotion, don’t follow or deny.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]
Experience feelings like watching a movie where you are aware you are just an audience. That’s all, you can resonate with or relate to some of the scenes[dt_gap height=”20″ /]
However, you know it is a movie and you are an outsider, nothing more than that. Watch closely what is happening in a neutral way, without judgment or expectation.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]
Once you are able to be unbiased towards your feelings, they will slip away just like the cloud floating in the sky.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]

Conclusion:[dt_gap height=”20″ /]

Lao Tzu, the Great ancient Chinese sage whose Taoism theory had profoundly influenced the doctrine of Zen Buddism, once said in his well-known work, Tao Te Ching that:[dt_gap height=”20″ /]
“Understanding the good and the bad in other people is merely intelligence. While understanding one’s own nature is true enlightenment”[dt_gap height=”20” /]
To know “yourself”  involves the body and the mind. It is widely believed that the spirit is much more superior to the physical body.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]
The inquiry of answers to the question about who we are. Why we are here and any other self -exploring queries.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]
On the contrary, the body with flesh and blood is no inferior to any form of spirit or soul, they are equally vital to our conscious evolution.[dt_gap height=”20″ /]
