Have you seen those quite enchanting hand gestures in Hindi gods and goddesses? They are called “Mudras” and are used to stimulate different points of our bodies to affect the flow of energy on it. Along with breathing techniques and chants they are spiritual gestures and energetic seals employed in the iconography and spiritual practice of Hindi religions and traditions of Dharma and Taoism. They are used in some relaxation and mind disciplines like Yoga, Ayurveda, Kundalini Yoga and Reiki.
There are one hundred and eight mudras and not of all are related to the hands but the whole body. Every one of them has an specific “power” and many of them are easy and some other needs some practice. Mudras are not just for religion purposes, they are able to help us in many ways like health, love, depression, mind, etc. Based on the principle that these gestures benefits blood torrents in our bodies, they can help to some organs of our body and make them function in a best way. Some others are more related with the energy flow and help us with relaxation and mind strenght.
If you feel curiosity for know more about Mudras, you can find here some examples and if you want to practice and get more involved you can find a lot of information on Google Images and Youtube.
Looking for an option to get a better sleep time at night, I found out this great site: Calm Radio. They have 93 radio stations for internet streaming and you can enjoy 69 of them for free because 24 of them. There are separated for channels like: Acoustic, Relaxation, Classical, World, Jazz and Atmospheres (req. membership). All of them are fantastic but the most useful for me is Relaxation channel because I can choose between sub-channels Lounge, Spaced, Spa, Sleep, Singing Bowls, Positivity, Healing, Om and my favorite: Reiki, which have helped me a lot with my meditations as a begginer.
Move now and enjoy this great site!
“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen”.- Elizabeth Kubler Ros
This week my friend Gia and I were talking about our suddenly no appetite for meat. Neither knew when and why we suddenly lost the need for meat, specially the red ones (beef, etc.) and chicken.
Conny Mendez’s book “Metaphysics for Everyone” came to my mind. She said that when our spiritual level became higher our primal instincts will be decreasing and mentioned the disliking for meat as an example.
We didn’t notice when this happened, but Gia told me she feels stronger than ever and her goals are very clear for her now and I am through a self discovering journey since last year, reading and absorbing like a sponge everything about mind, soul, spirit and healing.
“Memory is the diary that we all carry about with us” – Oscar Wilde.
Diaries are not just an ordinary notebook or an electronic page. Sometimes, writing a diary is a therapy where all the things we lived daily became written to the memory. In other cases, a diary is a way to get out all that blurry and dark feelings we kept inside with the main purpose to clean our souls. It depends on the eye of the beholder and the way we want to take it.
