“Control of the mind is said to be the highest Yoga. It is like control of an unruly horse, which must be made to obey its rider.”  — Bhagavata Purana, XI.20

Energy is part of the fabric of matter. To some it is Chi (from Chinese), Ki (Japanese) or Prana (Indian). To others it is the life force or breath of the Gods.

Energy is sacred. It is a part of all things. When energy is in a proper state of balance, it moves smoothly through the space it occupies (our homes, our workspace even our bodies). Balancing this energy is a crucial part of living a healthy and calm life.
A healthy lifestyle which includes moderation in all things: eating right, daily exercise and a normal sleeping pattern is key to balanced energy. One trick to healthy living is making small changes. Make wise choices (skip the chips choose raw fruit or vegetables) Eating healthy snacks will make you feel awake and alive. Free yourself from a bad diet in simple steps: add fruit to your cereal, have an extra glass of water instead of soda, limit your alcohol and caffeine consumption. It is possible to ease into a healthier lifestyle just by making conscious choices.

When was the last time you detoxed?

The famous American psychic, Edgar Cayce, recommended this detoxifying diet to a client what has become ” the Edgar Cayce Apple Diet.” It was intended by him as a three-day detox diet.

“But don’t go without the apples – eat them – all you can – at least five or six apples each day. Chew them up, scrape them well. Drink plenty of water, and follow the three-day diet with the big dose of Olive Oil.” He also recommended rest while on this fast (specifically, he said “don’t work like a horse …” or it would be more detrimental than helpful.) The “big dose” of olive oil is around two teaspoons.

Daily exercise, the practice of yoga and daily meditation are also wonderful vehicles to a healthier life.

Our bodies are so much more than meets the eye. Of course we are flesh, blood and bone but we are also Spirit and within our body lies and an amazing network of energy centers or chakras.

This energy system ensures that our organs, cells, and tissues stay strong and healthy. When there is a block in an energy pathway, the organ system that the pathway corresponds with will also become blocked. Through meditation we can move energy through the body and heal it. Not only can we eliminate stress but we can heal and balance our own bodies by drawing energy to the energy center or chakra point that is not functioning to its fullest potential.

There are seven main chakras, or energy centers, located in our body, five of which are located along the spine, the upper two on our head. Each chakra is associated with a different energy level. Begin with the lowest, the root chakra, which stands for the pure matter, to the highest, the crown chakra, which represents pure consciousness.

Energy flows through these centers and the flow of energy affects our health. Through meditation we can balance and aligned each energy centers setting the chakra to glow and spin.

The practice of meditation is a large part of psychic development and spiritual work. Meditation is the practice of focusing and quieting your mind to achieve a heightened awareness of your inner spirit and release your inner wisdom whereby you are attempting to merge the desires of the subconscious mind with the desires of the conscious mind in order to work toward a common goal.

When you shift your attention to each breath slowly and deeply drawn and released, you shift your mind into a quiet mode, releasing your mind clutter and silencing the “monkey mind” that constantly tries to invade our thoughts and emotions. The result of this shift is peace, serenity, calmness and inspiration.

Through Meditation Practices one can improved mental functioning, achieve greater intuition as well as greater access to unconscious resources and abilities.
