Meditation - Relaxation - Breathing - Hypnosis - Natural Therapy's


Every now and then you have to Take a Break because our physical health and mental health depends on it. And Meditation is a convenient way to relax, reconnect, Balance and reenergize our well being. Our lives can easily become disconnected from Reality. So we need to Unplug and step back once in a while in order to Reassess our Baseline. And sometimes we even need to Reboot and start over fresh.

Breathing


Breathing is the process that moves Air in and out of the Lungs, inhalation and exhalation, drawing air into, and expelling air out of, the lungs; the process of taking in Oxygen from inhaled Air and releasing Carbon Dioxide by exhalation. Passing or able to pass air in and out of the Lungs normally; sometimes used in combination.

Respiration is a single complete act of breathing in and out, the metabolic processes whereby certain organisms obtain energy from organic molecules; processes that take place in the Cells and tissues during which Energy is released and carbon dioxide is produced and absorbed by the blood to be transported to the lungs.

Static Apnea is a discipline in which a person holds their breath (apnea) underwater for as long as possible, and need not swim any distance. Bradycardia is a slow heart rate, defined as a heart rate of under 60 beats per minute (BPM) in adults.

Diaphragmatic Deep Breathing is breathing that is done by contracting the diaphragm, a muscle located horizontally between the thoracic cavity and abdominal cavity. Air enters the lungs and the belly expands during this type of breathing. This deep breathing is marked by expansion of the abdomen rather than the chest when breathing. It is a form of complementary and alternative treatment.

Ujjayi Breath is a diaphragmatic breath, which first fills the lower belly (activating the first and second chakras), rises to the lower rib cage (the third and fourth chakras), and finally moves into the upper chest and throat. The technique is very similar to the three-part Tu-Na breathing found in Taoist Qigong practice. Inhalation and exhalation are both done through the nose. The "ocean sound" is created by moving the glottis as air passes in and out. As the throat passage is narrowed so, too, is the airway, the passage of air through which creates a "rushing" sound. The length and speed of the breath is controlled by the diaphragm, the strengthening of which is, in part, the purpose of ujjayi. The inhalations and exhalations are equal in duration, and are controlled in a manner that causes no distress to the practitioner.

Close Eyes, imagine blowing up a balloon and inhale fully in through the nose and exhale through the mouth in short powerful burst, use midriff or Abdomen or Belly fully. (30 times). Should feel light head or tingling sensations. On the last breath fill the lungs to maximum without force, then let the air out and hold for as long as you can until you experience the gasp reflex. Then inhale to full capacity and then hold for 10 seconds. Repeat 3 more times. Enjoy the moment. CO2 Reduction

Shallow Breathing is thoracic breathing, or chest breathing is the drawing of minimal breath into the lungs, usually by drawing air into the chest area using the intercostal muscles rather than throughout the lungs via the diaphragm. Shallow breathing can result in or be symptomatic of rapid breathing and hypoventilation. Most people who breathe shallowly do it throughout the day and are almost always unaware of the condition. In upper lobar breathing, clavicular breathing, or clavicle breathing air is drawn predominantly into the chest by the raising of the shoulders and collarbone (clavicles), and simultaneous contracting of the abdomen during inhalation. Maximum amount of air can be drawn this way only for short periods of time, since it requires a lot of effort. When used for prolonged time, this is the most superficial mode of shallow breathing. Thoracic relates to the chest or thorax, which is the part of the human torso between the neck and the diaphragm.

Hyperventilation occurs when the rate and quantity of alveolar ventilation of carbon dioxide exceeds the body's production of carbon dioxide. When alveolar ventilation is excessive, more carbon dioxide will be removed from the blood stream than the body can produce. This causes the concentration of carbon dioxide in the blood stream to fall and produces a state known as hypocapnia, which is a state of reduced carbon dioxide in the blood. The body normally attempts to compensate for this metabolically. If excess ventilation cannot be compensated metabolically, it will lead to a rise in blood pH. This rise in blood pH is known as respiratory alkalosis. When hyperventilation leads to respiratory alkalosis, it may cause a number of physical symptoms: dizziness, tingling in the lips, hands or feet, headache, weakness, fainting and seizures. In extreme cases it can cause carpopedal spasms (flapping and contraction of the hands and feet). Over-breathing

When changes in heart rate are analyzed formally, as in a Differential Fourier Transform (DFT) by frequency, the predominant frequency ranges of heart rate variability can identified by their higher amplitudes. Three such relatively high amplitude frequency ranges have been proven to be sensitive indicators of autonomic nervous system regulation and associated changes in emotion, alertness, attention, and stress. These are the Very Low Frequency (VLF, 0.0033 to 0.04 Hz), Low Frequency (LF, 0.04 to 0.15 Hz), and High frequency (HF, 0.15 to 0.4 Hz, RSA, or breathing heart wave) ranges. Monitoring and recording HRV in these frequency bands has proven useful in tracking and evaluating autonomic nervous system function.

Good Vibrations


Brainwave Entrainment refers to the capacity of the brain to naturally synchronize its brainwave frequencies with the rhythm of periodic external stimuli, most commonly auditory, visual, or tactile. Brainwave entrainment technologies are used to induce various brain states, such as relaxation or sleep, by creating stimuli that occur at regular, periodic intervals to mimic electrical cycles of the brain during the desired states, thereby "training" the brain to consciously alter states. Recurrent acoustic frequencies, flickering lights, or tactile vibrations are the most common examples of stimuli applied to generate different sensory responses.

Neural Oscillation is rhythmic or repetitive neural activity in the central nervous system. Neural tissue can generate oscillatory activity in many ways, driven either by mechanisms within individual neurons or by interactions between neurons. In individual neurons, oscillations can appear either as oscillations in membrane potential or as rhythmic patterns of action potentials, which then produce oscillatory activation of post-synaptic neurons. At the level of neural ensembles, synchronized activity of large numbers of neurons can give rise to macroscopic oscillations, which can be observed in an electroencephalogram. Oscillatory activity in groups of neurons generally arises from feedback connections between the neurons that result in the synchronization of their firing patterns. The interaction between neurons can give rise to oscillations at a different frequency than the firing frequency of individual neurons. A well-known example of macroscopic neural oscillations is alpha activity.

Binaural Beats is an auditory illusion perceived when two different pure-tone sine waves, both with frequencies lower than 1500 Hz, with less than a 40 Hz difference between them, are presented to a listener dichotically (one through each ear). For example, if a 530 Hz pure tone is presented to a subject's right ear, while a 520 Hz pure tone is presented to the subject's left ear, the listener will perceive the auditory illusion of a third tone, in addition to the two pure-tones presented to each ear. The third sound is called a binaural beat, and in this example would have a perceived pitch correlating to a frequency of 10 Hz, that being the difference between the 530 Hz and 520 Hz pure tones presented to each ear.

Theta Wave Signal Graph Theta Wave is a neural oscillatory pattern in electroencephalography (EEG) signals (4 – 7 Hz), recorded either from inside the brain or from electrodes glued to the scalp. Two types of theta rhythm have been described. The "hippocampal theta rhythm" is a strong oscillation that can be observed in the hippocampus and other brain structures in numerous species of mammals including rodents, rabbits, dogs, cats, bats, and marsupials. "Cortical theta rhythms" are low-frequency components of scalp EEG, usually recorded from humans. Theta rhythms can be quantified using Quantitative electroencephalography (qEEG) using freely available toolboxes, such as, EEGLAB or the Neurophysiological Biomarker Toolbox (NBT). Theta Binaural Beat 7hz (youtube) 

Alpha Wave Signal Graph Alpha Wave are neural oscillations in the frequency range of 7.5–12.5 Hz arising from synchronous and coherent (in phase or constructive) electrical activity of thalamic pacemaker cells in humans. They are also called Berger's wave in memory of the founder of EEG. Alpha waves are one type of brain waves detected either by electroencephalography (EEG) or magnetoencephalography (MEG) and predominantly originate from the occipital lobe during wakeful relaxation with closed eyes. Alpha waves are reduced with open eyes, drowsiness and sleep. Historically, they were thought to represent the activity of the visual cortex in an idle state. More recent papers have argued that they inhibit areas of the cortex not in use, or alternatively that they play an active role in network coordination and communication. Occipital alpha waves during periods of eyes closed are the strongest EEG brain signals. Alpha Binaural Beat 12hz (youtube) - Earths Vibration is 7.83 Hz

Beta Wave Signal Graph Beta Wave or beta rhythm, is the term used to designate the frequency range of human brain activity between 12.5 and 30 Hz (12.5 to 30 transitions or cycles per second). Beta waves can be split into three sections: Low Beta Waves (12.5–16 Hz, "Beta 1 power"); Beta Waves (16.5–20 Hz, "Beta 2 power"); and High Beta Waves (20.5–28 Hz, "Beta 3 power"). Beta states are the states associated with normal waking consciousness. Beta Binaural Beat 20hz (youtube)

Sensorimotor Rhythm is a brain wave. It is an oscillatory idle rhythm of synchronized electric brain activity. It appears in spindles in recordings of EEG, MEG, and ECoG over the sensorimotor cortex. For most individuals, the frequency of the SMR is in the range of 13 to 15 Hz.

Gamma Wave Signal Graph Gamma Wave is a pattern of neural oscillation in humans with a frequency between 25 and 100 Hz, though 40 Hz is typical. According to a popular theory, gamma waves may be implicated in creating the unity of conscious perception (the binding problem). However, there is no agreement on the theory; as a researcher suggests: Whether or not gamma wave activity is related to subjective awareness is a very difficult question which cannot be answered with certainty at the present time.

Brainwave Frequency Effects

Resonance is a phenomenon in which a vibrating system or external force drives another system to oscillate with greater amplitude at a specific preferential frequency. Frequencies at which the response amplitude is a relative maximum are known as the system's resonant frequencies or resonance frequencies. At resonant frequencies, small periodic driving forces have the ability to produce large amplitude oscillations, due to the storage of vibrational energy.

Schumann Resonances are a set of spectrum peaks in the extremely low frequency (ELF) portion of the Earth's electromagnetic field spectrum. Schumann resonances are global electromagnetic resonances, generated and excited by lightning discharges in the cavity formed by the Earth's surface and the ionosphere.

Q Factor is a dimensionless parameter that describes how under-damped an oscillator or resonator is, and characterizes a resonator's bandwidth relative to its center frequency. Higher Q indicates a lower rate of energy loss relative to the stored energy of the resonator; the oscillations die out more slowly. A pendulum suspended from a high-quality bearing, oscillating in air, has a high Q, while a pendulum immersed in oil has a low one. Resonators with high quality factors have low damping so that they ring or vibrate longer.

Deep Brain Stimulation is a neurosurgical procedure introduced in 1987, involving the implantation of a medical device called a neurostimulator (sometimes referred to as a 'brain pacemaker'), which sends electrical impulses, through implanted electrodes, to specific targets in the brain (brain nuclei) for the treatment of movement and neuropsychiatric disorders. DBS in select brain regions has provided therapeutic benefits for otherwise-treatment-resistant disorders such as Parkinson's disease, essential tremor, dystonia, chronic pain, major depression and obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD). Despite the long history of DBS, its underlying principles and mechanisms are still not clear. DBS directly changes brain activity in a controlled manner, its effects are reversible (unlike those of lesioning techniques), and it is one of only a few neurosurgical methods that allow blinded studies

Electrical Conduction System of the Heart transmits signals generated usually by the sinoatrial node to cause contraction of the heart muscle. The pacemaking signal generated in the sinoatrial node travels through the right atrium to the atrioventricular node, along the Bundle of His and through bundle branches to cause contraction of the heart muscle. This signal stimulates contraction first of the right and left atrium, and then the right and left ventricles. This process allows blood to be pumped throughout the body. The conduction system consists of specialized heart muscle cells, and is situated within the myocardium. There is a skeleton of fibrous tissue that surrounds the conduction system which can be seen on an ECG. Dysfunction of the conduction system can cause irregular, fast, or slow heart rhythms.

Sinoatrial Node is a group of cells located in the wall of the right atrium of the heart. These cells have the ability to spontaneously produce an electrical impulse action potential that travels through the heart via the electrical conduction system causing it to contract. In a healthy heart, the SAN continuously produces action potential, setting the rhythm of the heart and so is known as the hearts natural pacemaker. The rate of action potential production (and therefore the heart rate) is influenced by nerves that supply it.

Frisson is a sensation somewhat like shivering, usually caused by stimuli other than cold. It is typically expressed as an overwhelming emotional response combined with piloerection (goosebumps). Stimuli that produce a response are specific to the individual. Frisson is of short duration, usually no more than 4–5 seconds, usually pleasurable. Typical stimuli include loud passages of music and passages that violate some level of musical expectation. It has been shown that during frisson, the skin of the lower back flexes, and shivers rise upward and inward from the shoulders, up the neck, and may extend to the cheeks and scalp. The face may become flush, hair follicles experience piloerection. This frequently occurs in a series of 'waves' moving up the back in rapid succession. The frissoner usually feels the experience as involuntary. It has been shown that some experiencing musical frisson report reduced excitement when under administration of naloxone (an opioid receptor antagonist), suggesting musical frisson gives rise to endogenous opioid peptides similar to other pleasurable experiences. Frisson may be enhanced by the amplitude of the music and the temperature of the environment. Cool listening rooms and movie theaters may enhance the experience.

Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response is an experience characterized by a static-like or tingling sensation on the skin that typically begins on the scalp and moves down the back of the neck and upper spine. It has been compared[by whom?] with auditory-tactile synesthesia. Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) signifies the subjective experience of 'low-grade euphoria' characterized by 'a combination of positive feelings, and a distinct static-like tingling sensation on the skin'. It is most commonly triggered by specific acoustic, visual and digital media stimuli, and less commonly by intentional attentional control.

Human Voice Frequency is one of the frequencies, within part of the audio range, that is used for the transmission of speech. In telephony, the usable voice frequency band ranges from approximately 300 Hz to 3400 Hz. It is for this reason that the ultra low frequency band of the electromagnetic spectrum between 300 and 3000 Hz is also referred to as voice frequency, being the electromagnetic energy that represents acoustic energy at baseband. The bandwidth allocated for a single voice-frequency transmission channel is usually 4 kHz, including guard bands, allowing a sampling rate of 8 kHz to be used as the basis of the pulse code modulation system used for the digital PSTN. Per the Nyquist–Shannon sampling theorem, the sampling frequency (8 kHz) must be at least twice the highest component of the voice frequency via appropriate filtering prior to sampling at discrete times (4 kHz) for effective reconstruction of the voice signal.

Human Voice consists of sound made by a human being using the vocal folds for talking, singing, laughing, crying, screaming, etc. The human voice frequency is specifically a part of human sound production in which the vocal folds (vocal cords) are the primary sound source. Other sound production mechanisms produced from the same general area of the body involve the production of unvoiced consonants, clicks, whistling and whispering. Generally speaking, the mechanism for generating the human voice can be subdivided into three parts; the lungs, the vocal folds within the larynx, and the articulators. The lung (the pump) must produce adequate airflow and air pressure to vibrate vocal folds (this air pressure is the fuel of the voice). The vocal folds (vocal cords) are a vibrating valve that chops up the airflow from the lungs into audible pulses that form the laryngeal sound source. The muscles of the larynx adjust the length and tension of the vocal folds to ‘fine-tune’ pitch and tone. The articulators (the parts of the vocal tract above the larynx consisting of tongue, palate, cheek, lips, etc.) articulate and filter the sound emanating from the larynx and to some degree can interact with the laryngeal airflow to strengthen it or weaken it as a sound source. The vocal folds, in combination with the articulators, are capable of producing highly intricate arrays of sound. The tone of voice may be modulated to suggest emotions such as anger, surprise, or happiness. Singers use the human voice as an instrument for creating music.

Om is a sacred sound and a spiritual icon in Hindu religion. It is also a mantra in Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism. Om is part of the iconography found in ancient and medieval era manuscripts, temples, monasteries and spiritual retreats in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. The symbol has a spiritual meaning in all Indian dharmas, but the meaning and connotations of Om vary between the diverse schools within and across the various traditions.

Radionics is an alternative medicine that claims disease can be diagnosed and treated with a kind of energy similar to radio waves. The concept behind radionics originated in the early 1900s with Albert Abrams (1864–1924), who became a millionaire by leasing radionic machines which he designed himself.

Resonance (HZ) - Waves

Acoustic Resonance is a phenomenon that consists of a given acoustic system amplifying a sound whose frequency matches one of its own natural frequencies of vibration (its resonance frequencies). The term "acoustic resonance" is sometimes used to narrow mechanical resonance to the frequency range of human hearing, but since acoustics is defined in general terms concerning vibrational waves in matter acoustic resonance can occur at frequencies outside the range of human hearing. An acoustically resonant object usually has more than one resonance frequency, especially at harmonics of the strongest resonance. It will easily vibrate at those frequencies, and vibrate less strongly at other frequencies. It will "pick out" its resonance frequency from a complex excitation, such as an impulse or a wideband noise excitation. In effect, it is filtering out all frequencies other than its resonance. Acoustic resonance is an important consideration for instrument builders, as most acoustic instruments use resonators, such as the strings and body of a violin, the length of tube in a flute, and the shape of a drum membrane. Acoustic resonance is also important for hearing. For example, resonance of a stiff structural element, called the basilar membrane within the cochlea of the inner ear allows hair cells on the membrane to detect sound. (For mammals the membrane has tapering resonances across its length so that high frequencies are concentrated on one end and low frequencies on the other.) Like mechanical resonance, acoustic resonance can result in catastrophic failure of the vibrator. The classic example of this is breaking a wine glass with sound at the precise resonant frequency of the glass; although this is difficult in practice.

Cymatics is when shapes and patterns are created from sound wave vibrations, usually using the surface of a plate, diaphragm or membrane. Regions of maximum and minimum displacement are made visible in a thin coating of particles, paste or liquid. Different patterns emerge in the excitatory medium depending on the geometry of the plate and the driving frequency.

Normal Mode Vibration Motion GifNormal Mode of an oscillating system is a pattern of motion in which all parts of the system move sinusoidally with the same frequency and with a fixed phase relation. The free motion described by the normal modes takes place at the fixed frequencies. These fixed frequencies of the normal modes of a system are known as its natural frequencies or resonant frequencies. A physical object, such as a building, bridge or molecule, has a set of normal modes and their natural frequencies that depend on its structure, materials and boundary conditions. The most general motion of a system is a superposition of its normal modes. The modes are normal in the sense that they can move independently, that is to say that an excitation of one mode will never cause motion of a different mode. In mathematical terms, normal modes are orthogonal to each other.

Binaural Recording is a method of recording sound that uses two microphones, arranged with the intent to create a 3-D stereo sound sensation for the listener of actually being in the room with the performers or instruments. This effect is often created using a technique known as "dummy head recording", wherein a mannequin head is outfitted with a microphone in each ear. Binaural recording is intended for replay using headphones and will not translate properly over stereo speakers. This idea of a three dimensional or "internal" form of sound has also translated into useful advancement of technology in many things such as stethoscopes creating "in-head" acoustics and IMAX movies being able to create a three dimensional acoustic experience.

Drum Circle is any group of people playing (usually) hand-drums and percussion in a circle. They are distinct from a drumming group or troupe in that the drum circle is an end in itself rather than preparation for a performance. They can range in size from a handful of players to circles with thousands of participants. Drum circles are related to other community-based music gatherings such as flute circles or vocal improvisation groups.

Light - Colors


Chromotherapy, sometimes called color therapy, colorology or cromatherapy, is an alternative medicine method, which is considered pseudoscience. Chromotherapists claim to be able to use light in the form of color to balance "energy" lacking from a person's body, whether it be on physical, emotional, spiritual, or mental levels. Research has shown it is ineffective. Color therapy is distinct from other types of light therapy, such as neonatal jaundice treatment and blood irradiation therapy which is a scientifically accepted medical treatment for a number of conditions, and from photobiology, the scientific study of the effects of light on living organisms.

Color Vision is the ability of an organism or machine to distinguish objects based on the wavelengths (or frequencies) of the light they reflect, emit, or transmit. Colors can be measured and quantified in various ways; indeed, a person's perception of colors is a subjective process whereby the brain responds to the stimuli that are produced when incoming light reacts with the several types of cone cells in the eye. In essence, different people see the same illuminated object or light source in different ways.

Color Knowledge

Color Psychology is the study of hues as a determinant of human behavior. Color influences perceptions that are not obvious, such as the taste of food. Colours can also enhance the effectiveness of placebos. For example, red or orange pills are generally used as stimulants. Colour can indeed influence a person; however, it is important to remember that these effects differ between people. Factors such as gender, age, and culture can influence how an individual perceives color. For example, males reported that red colored outfits made women seem more attractive, while women answered that the color of a male's outfit did not affect his attractiveness.

Individuals exposed to blue wavelength lights experienced faster reaction times.

Spectral Sensitivity is the relative efficiency of detection, of light or other signal, as a function of the frequency or wavelength of the signal. In visual neuroscience, spectral sensitivity is used to describe the different characteristics of the photopigments in the rod cells and cone cells in the retina of the eye. It is known that the rod cells are more suited to scotopic vision and cone cells to photopic vision, and that they differ in their sensitivity to different wavelengths of light. It has been established that the maximum spectral sensitivity of the human eye under daylight conditions is at a wavelength of 555 nm, while at night the peak shifts to 507 nm.

Light Therapy or phototherapy, classically referred to as heliotherapy — consists of exposure to daylight or to specific wavelengths of light using polychromatic polarised light, lasers, light-emitting diodes, fluorescent lamps, dichroic lamps or very bright, full-spectrum light. The light is administered for a prescribed amount of time and, in some cases, at a specific time of day. One common use of the term is associated with the treatment of skin disorders, chiefly psoriasis, acne vulgaris, eczema and neonatal jaundice. Light therapy which strikes the retina of the eyes is used to treat diabetic retinopathy and also circadian rhythm disorders such as delayed sleep phase disorder and can also be used to treat seasonal affective disorder, with some support for its use also with non-seasonal psychiatric disorders.

Sungazing is the act of looking directly into the Sun. It is sometimes done as part of a spiritual or religious practice. However, the human eye is very sensitive, and prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can lead to solar retinopathy, pterygium, cataracts, and even blindness. Studies have shown that even when viewing a solar eclipse the eye can still be exposed to harmful levels of ultraviolet radiation.

Gaze means "to look steadily, intently, and with fixed attention.

Imagery

Guided Imagery is a mind-body intervention by which a trained practitioner or teacher helps a participant or patient to evoke and generate mental images that simulate or re-create the sensory perception of sights, sounds, tastes, smells, movements, and images associated with touch, such as texture, temperature, and pressure, as well as imaginative or mental content that the participant or patient experiences as defying conventional sensory categories, and that may precipitate strong emotions or feelings in the absence of the stimuli to which correlating sensory receptors are receptive. The practitioner or teacher may facilitate this process in person to an individual or a group. Alternatively, the participant or patient may follow guidance provided by a sound recording, video, or audiovisual media comprising spoken instruction that may be accompanied by music or sound.

Aromatherapy uses plant materials and aromatic plant oils, including essential oils, and other aroma compounds for improving psychological or physical well-being. It can be offered as a complementary therapy or, more controversially, as a form of alternative medicine. Complementary therapy can be offered alongside standard treatment, with alternative medicine offered instead of conventional, evidence-based treatments. Aromatherapists, who specialize in the practice of aromatherapy, utilize blends of therapeutic essential oils that can be issued through topical application, massage, inhalation or water immersion to stimulate a desired response. There is no good medical evidence that aromatherapy can either prevent or cure any disease, but it might help improve general well-being. Aromatherapy

Essential Oil is a concentrated hydrophobic liquid containing volatile aroma compounds from plants. Essential oils are also known as volatile oils, ethereal oils, aetherolea, or simply as the oil of the plant from which they were extracted, such as oil of clove. An oil is "essential" in the sense that it contains the "essence of" the plant's fragrance—the characteristic fragrance of the plant from which it is derived. The term essential used here does not mean indispensable as with the terms essential amino acid or essential fatty acid which are so called since they are nutritionally required by a given living organism. Essential oils are generally extracted by distillation, often by using steam. Other processes include expression, solvent extraction, absolute oil extraction, resin tapping, and cold pressing. They are used in perfumes, cosmetics, soaps and other products, for flavoring food and drink, and for adding scents to incense and household cleaning products.

Deprivation Isolation

Isolation Tank originally called a sensory deprivation tank (a.k.a. float tank, flotation tank or sensory attenuation tank) is a lightless, soundproof tank with high epsom salt (magnesium sulphate) content filled with salt water at skin temperature, in which individuals float. They were first used in 1954 to test the effects of sensory deprivation. Flotation is widely advertised on the internet as a form of alternative medicine with claims that it has beneficial health effect.

Sensory Deprivation is the deliberate reduction or removal of stimuli from one or more of the senses. Simple devices such as blindfolds or hoods and earmuffs can cut off sight and hearing, while more complex devices can also cut off the sense of smell, touch, taste, thermoception (heat-sense), and 'gravity'. Sensory deprivation has been used in various alternative medicines and in psychological experiments (e.g. with an isolation tank). Short-term sessions of sensory deprivation are described as relaxing and conducive to meditation; however, extended or forced sensory deprivation can result in extreme anxiety, hallucinations, bizarre thoughts, and depression. A related phenomenon is perceptual deprivation, also called the ganzfeld effect. In this case a constant uniform stimulus is used instead of attempting to remove the stimuli; this leads to effects which have similarities to sensory deprivation.

Sensory Adaptation is a change over time in the responsiveness of the sensory system to a constant stimulus. It is usually experienced as a change in the stimulus. For example, if one rests one's hand on a table, one immediately feels the table's surface on one's skin. Within a few seconds, however, one ceases to feel the table's surface. The sensory neurons stimulated by the table's surface respond immediately, but then respond less and less until they may not respond at all; this is an example of neural adaptation. Neural adaptation is also thought to happen at a more central level such as the cortex.

Infrared Sauna uses infrared heaters to emit infrared light experienced as radiant heat which is absorbed by the surface of the skin. Traditional saunas heat the body primarily by conduction and convection from the heated air and by radiation of the heated surfaces in the sauna room. Although saunas have been advertised to provide a wide range of health benefits, such as detoxification, there are no scientific evidence backing these claims.

Grounded

Earthing is having your body in contact with earth. Being grounded.

Earthing System or grounding system connects specific parts of that installation with the Earth's conductive surface for safety and functional purposes. The point of reference is the Earth's conductive surface, or on ships, the surface of the sea. The choice of earthing system can affect the safety and electromagnetic compatibility of the installation. Regulations for earthing systems vary considerably among countries and among different parts of electrical systems, though many follow the recommendations of the International Electrotechnical Commission which are described below. This article only concerns grounding for electrical power. Examples of other earthing systems are listed below with links to articles: To protect a structure from lightning strike, directing the lightning through the earthing system and into the ground rod rather than passing through the structure. As part of a single-wire earth return power and signal lines, such as were used for low wattage power delivery and for telegraph lines. In radio, as a ground plane for large monopole antenna. As ancillary voltage balance for other kinds of radio antennas, such as dipoles. As the feed-point of a ground dipole antenna for VLF and ELF radio.

Ground (electricity) is the reference point in an electrical circuit from which voltages are measured, a common return path for electric current, or a direct physical connection to the Earth. Electrical circuits may be connected to ground (earth) for several reasons. In mains powered equipment, exposed metal parts are connected to ground to prevent user contact with dangerous voltage when electrical insulation fails. In electrical power distribution systems, a protective ground conductor is an essential part of the safety Earthing system. Connection to ground also limits the build-up of static electricity when handling flammable products or electrostatic-sensitive devices. In some telegraph and power transmission circuits, the earth itself can be used as one conductor of the circuit, saving the cost of installing a separate return conductor (see single-wire earth return). For measurement purposes, the Earth serves as a (reasonably) constant potential reference against which other potentials can be measured. An electrical ground system should have an appropriate current-carrying capability to serve as an adequate zero-voltage reference level. In electronic circuit theory, a "ground" is usually idealized as an infinite source or sink for charge, which can absorb an unlimited amount of current without changing its potential. Where a real ground connection has a significant resistance, the approximation of zero potential is no longer valid. Stray voltages or earth potential rise effects will occur, which may create noise in signals or if large enough will produce an electric shock hazard. The use of the term ground (or earth) is so common in electrical and electronics applications that circuits in portable electronic devices such as cell phones and media players as well as circuits in vehicles may be spoken of as having a "ground" connection without any actual connection to the Earth, despite "common" being a more appropriate term for such a connection. This is usually a large conductor attached to one side of the power supply (such as the "ground plane" on a printed circuit board) which serves as the common return path for current from many different components in the circuit.

Electrophysiology is the study of the electrical properties of biological cells and tissues. It involves measurements of voltage change or electric current on a wide variety of scales from single ion channel proteins to whole organs like the heart. In neuroscience, it includes measurements of the electrical activity of neurons, and particularly action potential activity. Recordings of large-scale electric signals from the nervous system, such as electroencephalography, may also be referred to as electrophysiological recordings. They are useful for electrodiagnosis and monitoring.

Electrobiology is the study of the production and use of electricity by biological organisms.

Hypnosis


Hypnosis is a state of human consciousness involving focused attention and reduced peripheral awareness and an enhanced capacity for response to suggestion. The term may also refer to an art, skill, or act of inducing hypnosis

Self-Hypnosis is a form, process or result of hypnosis which is self-induced, and normally makes use of self-suggestion. Self-hypnosis can make a person more yielding than normal.

Hypnotic Suggestion

Autosuggestion is a psychological technique of self-induced suggestion wherein the thoughts, feelings, or behavior of an individual are guided by oneself. This technique is often used in self-hypnosis.

Suggestion is the psychological process by which one person guides the thoughts, feelings, or behavior of another. I Suggest educating yourself and learning the most valuable knowledge and information available.

Autogenic Training is a desensitation-relaxation technique that involves the daily practice of sessions that last around 15 minutes. During each session, the practitioner repeats a set of visualisations that induce a state of relaxation. Each session can be practiced in a position chosen amongst a set of recommended postures (for example, lying down, sitting meditation, sitting like a rag doll). The technique can be used to alleviate many stress-induced psychosomatic disorders. Addictions

Hypnotherapy is a form of psychotherapy used to create subconscious change in a patient in the form of new responses, thoughts, attitudes, behaviours or feelings. It is undertaken with a subject in hypnosis. A person who is hypnotized displays certain unusual behavior characteristics and propensities, compared with a non-hypnotized subject, most notably heightened suggestibility and responsiveness.

Self-hypnosis is one of many methods used for learning. When self-hypnosis is used together with other learning methods it can be a very useful tool for communicating to our subconscious mind, so that we are more aware of our subconscious minds influence on our daily lives, but you still need a good amount of knowledge and information in order to fully understand your abilities as well as understand your vulnerabilities.

Deep Meditation

consultingYou have to learn how to discipline the mind so that you can free the mind of distractions, so your mind is quite and not wondering from thought to thought. Concentrated and focused, calm and at peace, to the point where your mind becomes in tune with all the energy that surrounds us, and you begin to see and feel with your mind, things that are beyond explanation, at least for now.

Quite the Mind. Reduce Worrying

Clear the mind of all thoughts, use no words, pretend that words don't exist and words can no longer be thought of, there are no thoughts, just your breathing.

Buddha Photos

Buddhist Meditation refers to the meditative practices associated with the religion and philosophy of Buddhism. Buddhist meditation encompasses a variety of meditation techniques that aim to develop mindfulness, concentration, supramundane powers, tranquility, and insight. Specific Buddhist meditation techniques have also been used to remove unwholesome qualities thought to be impediments to spiritual liberation, such loving kindness to remove ill-will, hate, and anger, equanimity to remove mental clinging, and reflection on 31-parts-of-the-body and corpses to remove sensual lust for the body and cultivate annica or impermanence.

Zen emphasizes rigorous self-control, meditation-practice, insight into Buddha-nature, and the personal expression of this insight in daily life, especially for the benefit of others. As such, it de-emphasizes mere knowledge of sutras and doctrine and favors direct understanding through zazen and interaction with an accomplished teacher.

Micromeditation

The act of relaxing while focusing your thoughts, letting go of distractions, and allowing yourself to move into your creative flow.

Private Portable Space


Still Meditation:
A traditional form of meditation using deep breathing; sitting still in a comfortable position with eyes closed; and clearing the mind of thought and/or focusing on a key thought, phrase, or word (mantra) to focus the energy.
Benefits: Reduces stress, relaxes the mind and body, supports feelings of relief, calms "inner chatter," and expands awareness.
Drawbacks: Requires time; a large amount of patience (even for 15 minutes!); and a quiet space without distraction -- usually not even music. Best option: Early mornings; before bedtime; during weekends, vacation, down time; or in times of great indecision or challenges.

Moving Meditation:
The practice of getting centered by allowing thoughts to flow freely while moving the body -- perhaps walking, running, exercising, doing housework, etc.
Benefits: Reduces stress, gives a physical/mental/spiritual outlet for energy to be released from the body, supports improved mood, stimulates creative thinking and problem solving.
Drawbacks: Requires time, outdoor locations or larger spaces (if indoors), and may require equipment or supplies.
Best option: In the morning immediately after rising, during the day (maybe during lunch), after work, weekends, or on days when ideas need to process. Also works best to help start out the day fresh or release stress at the end of the day to assist with relaxing at night.

Creative Meditation:
Getting into the "create zone" by immersing yourself into creative flow--allowing new creative ideas to come to you by using techniques like brainstorming, freewriting, and possibility thinking.
Benefits: Generates new ideas, allows for creative expression, taps creative intuition, and welcomes coincidence and creative collaboration.
Drawbacks: Can be time-consuming, may hit creative roadblocks and stalemates, and may sometimes require input from others to be most effective. Doesn't work well if you're not in the creative mood. If using creative meditation with a group, you may need to all be in sync (commonly referred to as synergy) to be most effective. This may require larger blocks of time or minimal disruptions to stay in the creative flow. Best option: Best used when creating new ideas, solving a creative challenge, inventing a new product or service, or strengthening collaboration with others.

Hold a cube of ice for 20 minutes on the Feng Fu point. At first you will begin to feel freezing, but after thirty or forty seconds you will feel warmth. By doing this every day you will begin to feel euphoria. This is because the ice cube will cause for endorphin to be released in your blood. It's believed that there are also more benefits from using this technique.


Take a Break


You have to take that break, even if you have to fantasize that you don't have a worry in the world, and that you are free to explore the world inward and outward. Just pretend that this is your job, believe that this is what you are supposed to be doing. This moment requires a new system of thinking, different parameters then the random and reoccurring thoughts of an every day busy life. You are going to put your daily life on hold. You are now in a closed private meeting with just yourself. Touching base with peace and tranquility. Letting life know that you are still here and that you appreciate the times alone together with just your spirit. The spirit of life and the earth.

Break is to lie down, recline, sit back, take it easy, unwind, wind down, breathe easy, calm down, catch one's breath, chill out, collect oneself, compose oneself, cool off, feel at home, hang loose, loosen up, make oneself at home, mellow out, put one's feet up, take five, take ten, stop work.

Sleeping

Tranquility is the quality or state of being tranquil; that is, calm, serene, and worry-free.

Give at least one guilt-free hour to relaxation per day.

Progressive Muscle Relaxation is a technique for learning to monitor and control the state of muscular tension. The technique involves learning to monitor tension in each specific muscle group in the body by deliberately inducing tension in each group. This tension is then released, with attention paid to the contrast between tension and relaxation. A modification of the technique is "biofeedback" in which one uses external measuring devices to indicate how successful one is in relaxing and then to use those techniques to relax without the help of external measuring devices.

Relaxation Exercise is any method, process, procedure, or activity that helps a person to relax; to attain a state of increased calmness; or otherwise reduce levels of pain, anxiety, stress or anger. Relaxation techniques are often employed as one element of a wider stress management program and can decrease muscle tension, lower the blood pressure and slow heart and breath rates, among other health benefits.

"Doing nothing is doing something."

Sunday is a day of rest in most Western countries, as a part of the weekend.

Sabbath is a day set aside for rest and worship.

Leisure is time spent away, a break from every day activities and responsibilities.

Sabbatical is a rest from work, or a break, often lasting from two months to a year.

Time Management 

Positivity

Rest is freedom from activity (work or strain or responsibility). A feeling of refreshing tranquility and an absence of tension or worry. A pause for relaxation. Take a short break from one's activities in order to relax. Become less tense, rest, or take one's ease.

Pause is temporary inactivity. Interrupt temporarily an activity before continuing. Cease an action temporarily.

Air Traffic Controllers are required after every hour and a half or two hours of work to take a 15 to 30 minute break. And that means an unplugged disconnected break where they go for a walk or listen to music, they exercise, something to restore all of the burned up neurochemicals. Neurochemical are chemicals in the brain that allow brain cells to communicate with each other. A neurochemical is an organic molecule, such as serotonin, dopamine, or nerve growth factor, that participates in neural activity. Strength between brain cells helps the brain work more effectively and communication more effectively with other areas of the brain. Depression

We spend too much time walking around unconscious and unaware. We need to spend more time being aware of ourselves, and the world around us. We need to exercise the ability of having awareness so that can we keep our minds strong, and, make ourselves more aware. And the best way to increase your awareness is to acquire new knowledge and to learn something new everyday. The human brain can store incredible amounts of information and knowledge. But if you are not learning and acquiring new knowledge, then you are weakening your abilities and your awareness, and at the same time, you are lowering your potential of accomplishing many different things that every human being is capable of doing. When you exercise and eat healthy, the body becomes stronger. When you learn and acquire new knowledge, your mind becomes stronger. And your mind will continue to become stronger and more effective as long as you keep learning. Any dream or goal that you have is possible, as long as you keep learning. When you stop learning, the possibilities will diminish.  Keep Learning.


Silence


Silence is good for you, it helps the brain regenerate brain cells. Two hours of silence per day prompted cell development in the hippocampus region of the Brain. So take a few moments each day to be in total Silence, spend time in nature, take a break. Silence relieves stress and tension. It's good to get away from the sonic disruptions because it gives our brains Attention Center the opportunity to restore. Seek calming pleasures that contribute to peace of mind.

Is Silence Golden? Effects of Auditory Stimuli and their absence on adult Hippocampal Neurogenesis

Attention Restoration Theory asserts that people can concentrate better after spending time in nature, or even looking at scenes of nature. Natural environments abound with "soft fascinations" which a person can reflect upon in "effortless attention", such as clouds moving across the sky, leaves rustling in a breeze or water bubbling over rocks in a stream.

Default Mode Network is a network of interacting brain regions known to have activity highly correlated with each other and distinct from other networks in the brain. The default mode network is most commonly shown to be active when a person is not Focused on the outside world and the brain is at wakeful rest, such as during daydreaming and mind-wandering. But it is also active when the individual is thinking about others, thinking about themselves, remembering the past, and planning for the future. The network activates "by default" when a person is not involved in a task.

Mind Wandering is the experience of thoughts not remaining on a single topic for a long period of time, particularly when people are engaged in an attention-demanding task. Mind-wandering tends to occur during driving, reading and other activities where vigilance may be low. In these situations, people do not remember what happened in the surrounding environment because they are pre-occupied with their thoughts. This is known as the decoupling hypothesis. Studies using event-related potentials (ERPs) have quantified the extent that mind-wandering reduces the cortical processing of the external environment. When thoughts are unrelated to the task at hand, the brain processes both task relevant and unrelated sensory information in a less detailed manner.

Silence is the lack of audible sound or presence of sounds of very low intensity. By analogy, the word silence can also refer to any absence of communication or hearing, including in media other than speech and music.  Silence is also used as total communication, in reference to nonverbal communication and spiritual connection. Silence also refers to no sounds uttered by anybody in a room or area. Silence is an important factor in many cultural spectacles, as in rituals.

Autobiography of a Yogi is an autobiography of Paramahansa Yogananda (January 5, 1893–March 7, 1952) first published in 1946. Yogananda was born Mukunda Lal Ghosh in Gorakhpur, India, into a Bengali family.

Kriya Yoga is described by its practitioners as the ancient Yoga system revived in modern times by Mahavatar Babaji through his disciple Lahiri Mahasaya, c. 1861. Kriya Yoga was brought to international awareness by Paramahansa Yogananda's book Autobiography of a Yogi and through Yogananda's introductions of the practice to the west from 1920. The Kriya Yogi mentally directs his life energy to revolve, upward and downward, around the six spinal centers (medullary, cervical, dorsal, lumbar, sacral, and coccygeal plexuses) which correspond to the twelve astral signs of the zodiac, the symbolic Cosmic Man. One half-minute of revolution of energy around the sensitive spinal cord of man effects subtle progress in his evolution; that half-minute of Kriya equals one year of natural spiritual unfoldment. Offering inhaling breath into the outgoing breath, and offering the outgoing breath into the inhaling breath, the yogi neutralizes both these breaths; he thus releases the life force from the heart and brings it under his control.

Self-Realization Fellowship is a worldwide spiritual organization founded by Paramahansa Yogananda in 1920 and legally incorporated as a non-profit religious organization in 1935, to serve as Yogananda’s instrument for the preservation and worldwide dissemination of his writings and teachings, including Kriya Yoga. Yogananda wrote in God Talks With Arjuna: The Bhagavad Gita that the science of Kriya Yoga was given to Manu, the original Adam, and through him to Janaka and other royal sages.

Bodhisattva is the Sanskrit term for anyone who, motivated by great compassion, has generated bodhicitta, which is a spontaneous wish to attain buddhahood for the benefit of all sentient beings.

Swami is an ascetic or yogi who has been initiated into the religious monastic order, founded by some religious teacher. It is believed to be originally used for the ones who were initiated into to the Advaita Vedanta movement, started by Adi Shankara. The meaning of the Sanskrit root of the word "Swami" is "one who is one with his Self" ('Swa' stands for self) The usage of this word is not just for a yogi but also used for a religious guru, with or without disciples.

Transformative is causing a marked change in someone or something.

Transformative Learning the process of "perspective transformation" has three dimensions: psychological (changes in understanding of the self), convictional (revision of belief systems), and behavioral (changes in lifestyle). Transformative learning is the expansion of consciousness through the transformation of basic worldview and specific capacities of the self; transformative learning is facilitated through consciously directed processes such as appreciatively accessing and receiving the symbolic contents of the unconscious and critically analyzing underlying premises. A defining condition of being human is that we have to understand the meaning of our experience. For some, any uncritically assimilated explanation by an authority figure will suffice. But in contemporary societies we must learn to make our own interpretations rather than act on the purposes, beliefs, judgments, and feelings of others. Facilitating such understandings is the cardinal goal of adult education. Transformative learning develops autonomous thinking. Perspective transformation, leading to transformative learning, occurs infrequently. An important part of transformative learning is for individuals to change their frames of reference by critically reflecting on their assumptions and beliefs and consciously making and implementing plans that bring about new ways of defining their worlds. This process is fundamentally rational and analytical.

Transcend is to be or go beyond the range or limits of (something abstract, typically a conceptual field or division).

Transcendental is a characteristic of a system of philosophy emphasizing the intuitive and spiritual above the empirical and material.

Transcendental Meditation Technique is a specific form of mantra meditation developed by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. It is often referred to as Transcendental Meditation, or simply TM. The meditation practice involves the use of a mantra and is practiced for 15–20 minutes twice per day while sitting with one's eyes closed. It is reported to be one of the most-widely practiced, and among the most widely researched meditation techniques, with over 340 peer-reviewed studies published.

Transcendence is a state of being or existence above and beyond the limits of material experience. The state of excelling or surpassing or going beyond usual limits. The quality of being which cannot be predicated on any actually existing thing insofar as it exists. Also means that God is completely outside of and beyond the world, as contrasted with the notion that God is manifested in the world.

Transcendental Meditation refers to a specific form of mantra meditation called the Transcendental Meditation technique.

Emergence of the Higher Self is a term associated with multiple belief systems, but its basic premise describes an eternal, omnipotent, conscious, and intelligent being, who is one's real self. Blavatsky formally defined the higher self as "Atma the inseparable ray of the Universe and one self. It is the God above, more than within, us". Each and every individual has a Higher self.

What would you do with a Heightened State Of Consciousness or a Higher State of Consciousness? What do you plan to accomplish? What is your purpose? What do you plan to Learn? If you don't have the necessary knowledge and information that's needed to describe your experience, then logically the first thing you should do is to learn as much as you can first. You can't progress without knowledge. So learning becomes the most important part of your journey.

Though originally conceived as a martial art, it is also typically practiced for a variety of other personal reasons: competitive wrestling in the format of pushing hands (tui shou), demonstration competitions, and achieving greater longevity. As a result, a multitude of training forms exist, both traditional and modern, which correspond to those aims with differing emphasis. Some training forms of t'ai chi ch'uan are especially known for being practiced with relatively slow movements.

om symbol sacred sound and a spiritual icon in Hindu religion Third Eye, also called the mind's eye, or inner eye, is a mystical and esoteric concept referring to a speculative invisible eye which provides perception beyond ordinary sight.

Parietal Eye also known as a third eye or pineal eye, is a part of the epithalamus present in some animal species. The eye is photoreceptive and is associated with the pineal gland, regulating circadian rhythmicity and hormone production for thermoregulation.

Pineal Gland is a small endocrine gland in the vertebrate brain. The shape of the gland resembles a pine cone, hence its name. The pineal gland is located in the epithalamus, near the center of the brain, between the two hemispheres, tucked in a groove where the two halves of the thalamus join. The pineal gland produces melatonin, a serotonin derived hormone which modulates sleep patterns in both circadian and seasonal cycles.

Chakra is thought to be an energy point or node in the subtle body. Soul Chakras are believed to be part of the subtle body, not the physical body, and as such, are the meeting points of the subtle (non-physical) energy channels called nadi. Nadi are believed to be channels in the subtle body through which the life force (prana) (non-physical) or vital energy (non-physical) moves.

Crystal Healing claims that stones and crystals have healing powers, although there is no scientific basis for this claim. In one method, the practitioner places crystals on different parts of the body, often corresponding to chakras; or else the practitioner places crystals around the body in an attempt to construct an energy grid, which is purported to surround the client with healing energy.

Prana is the Sanskrit word for "life force" or "vital principle", is all cosmic energy, permeating the Universe on all levels. Prana is often referred to as the "life force" or "life energy".

A lack of flexibility is often related to lack of strength.

Hyperflexion
is deviation from a straight or normal course. Act of bending a joint; especially a joint between the bones of a limb so that the angle between them is decreased.

Injury Warnings

Articulation Joint is the connection made between bones in the body which link the skeletal system into a functional whole. They are constructed to allow for different degrees and types of movement. Some joints, such as the knee, elbow, and shoulder, are self-lubricating, almost frictionless, and are able to withstand compression and maintain heavy loads while still executing smooth and precise movements. Other joints such as sutures between the bones of the skull permit very little movement (only during birth) in order to protect the brain and the sense organs. The connection between a tooth and the jawbone is also called a joint, and is described as a fibrous joint known as a gomphosis. Joints are classified both structurally and functionally.

Cracking Joints means bending a person's joints to produce a distinct cracking or popping sound, often followed by a feeling of satisfaction or relaxation to the person. It is sometimes done as part of a joint adjustment routine performed by a chiropractor. According to a folk belief, the popping of joints, especially knuckles, leads to arthritis or other joint problems. However, medical research has so far failed to demonstrate any connection between knuckle cracking and long-term joint problems. While the cracking mechanism and the resulting sound is not yet fully understood, it is mainly attributed to nitrogen or carbon dioxide bubbles building up between the joints.

Flexibility refers to the absolute range of movement in a joint or series of joints, and length in muscles that cross the joints to induce a bending movement or motion. Flexibility varies between individuals, particularly in terms of differences in muscle length of multi-joint muscles. Flexibility in some joints can be increased to a certain degree by exercise, with stretching a common exercise component to maintain or improve flexibility. Quality of life is enhanced by improving and maintaining a good range of motion in the joints. Overall flexibility should be developed with specific joint range of motion needs in mind as the individual joints vary from one to another. Loss of flexibility can be a predisposing factor for physical issues such as pain syndromes or balance disorders. Gender, age, and genetics are important for range of motion. Exercise including stretching and yoga often improves flexibility. Many factors are taken into account when establishing personal flexibility: joint structure, ligaments, tendons, muscles, skin, tissue injury, fat (or adipose) tissue, body temperature, activity level, age and gender all influence an individual's range of motion about a joint. Individual body flexibility level is measured and calculated by performing a sit and reach test, where the result is defined as personal flexibility score.

Contortion is a performance art in which performers, contortionists, showcase their skills of extreme physical flexibility. Contortion acts often accompany acrobatics, circus acts, street performers and other live performing arts. Contortion acts are typically performed in front of a live audience. An act will showcase one or more artists performing a choreographed set of moves or poses, often to music, which require extreme flexibility. The physical flexibility required to perform such acts greatly exceeds that of the general population. It is the dramatic feats of seemingly inhuman flexibility that captivate audiences. In some countries, such as Russia and Mongolia, contortion holds special cultural significance.

Pilates the art of controlled movements, which should look and feel like a workout (not a therapy) when properly manifested. If practiced with consistency, Pilates improves flexibility, builds strength and develops control and endurance in the entire body. It puts emphasis on alignment, breathing, developing a strong core, and improving coordination and balance. The core, consisting of the muscles of the abdomen, low back, and hips, is often called the "powerhouse" and is thought to be the key to a person's stability. Pilates' system allows for different exercises to be modified in range of difficulty from beginner to advanced or to any other level, and also in terms of the instructor and practitioner's specific goals and/or limitations. Intensity can be increased over time as the body conditions and adapts to the exercises.

Meditation or exercise alone will not solve all your problems. But the ability to meditate and exercise are great tools to have when mastered. Just remember that continually increasing your knowledge and understanding of yourself and the world around you will always be the important part of a strong mind and body. Having many tools is one thing, knowing how to use your tools effectively and efficiently is another. And it's not a good idea to always depend on those same tools always working the same way that you think they will. Awareness is essential in order to be aware of the changes that life brings.

Exercise Benefits the Body and Mind. Yoga is a type of exercise. Meditation is a type of exercise. The more you understand a particular type of exercise, the more you can benefit from it. The more time and learning that you put into an exercise, the more you can benefit from it. In order to receive you must first give. In order to receive the most benefits from any type of exercise you must first learn how to exercise effectively and efficiently, and also understand the physical and mental changes that you will experience. Benefits vary depending on the input, and also depending on how skillful and how knowledgeable you are. Practice and Learning is essential.

Just because certain people do weird or incredible things with yoga, meditation or any other type of exercise, this does not mean in anyway shape or form, that you need to experience these particular levels of achievement in order to benefit from exercising.

There are best practices, standards and ethics in most everything that we do. These are guidelines, but not necessarily the boundaries. But if you do explore beyond known boundaries, you are increasing the risks that might negate certain benefits. But taking risks are not always bad, as long as you learn from those experiences and share what you have learned. Not everyone will follow you and not everyone should. Everyone has their own destiny.

And when people mention spiritual benefits, this also varies from person to person. The bottom line is, the mind benefits from exercise. But how much you benefit depends on how much you learn and how much you practice. Any benefit is better then no benefit at all. Awareness comes from knowledge and experience. So never get discouraged. Keep learning, keep practicing, keep living.

Live, Learn, Love, and Progress
