Yoga, Meditation, Sleep, & Energy

This post may be a little short today and for that I am sorry. I woke up earlier than I normally do and am pretty tired. I woke up and did my yoga routine. I first got introduced to yoga in a class I took in high school but now I  have started to watch a yoga program called Yoga Sutra Now on the channel Veria. The channel is all about natural health and wellness. What I like about the show is that it is the traditional poses I remember doing and that at the end the host talks with someone from the yoga world so they can share their knowledge. The routines are also based around some theme which goes throughout the show. I am hoping to start doing yoga everyday after I wake up and meditation before I go to sleep. I am hoping this exercise will help me sleep better since I often find that I have trouble getting to sleep. I also have found that when I do yoga I have a lot more energy during the day which is amazing because usually I’m a bit tired. I hope the yoga might help with my back pain due to my scoliosis and help build my core muscles. I’m very excited to have gotten my new yoga mat, straps, and blocks which are standard supplies. Anyhow..This whole thing has left me wondering what other people do for exercise or what health problems ail other people. Do you have an exercise routine? What do you do to be healthier? Are you into herbal healing and other holistic choices? I know I am!

Also..Happy Summer Solstice!! I didn’t celebrate as much as I would have liked but I might like the candles on my altar and say I short chant or prayer to the sun. It might go like the following. I probably should have laid outside in the sun like a cat.

Summer Solstice

The sun blazes its brightest

spinning through the sky

showing all it glory before it descends

and says goodbye

I just love this cute kitty greeting the sunrise!

Being “Sensitive”

I’m unsure of how you guys may react to this but I consider myself to be a bit “sensitive” in many ways. I am an emotional person who understands others emotions. I am also what you might call a person in tune with higher energies. I believe energy is swirling around us constantly but did you know they come in colors? I do a lot of work with auras and chakras. Chakras are energy centers in the body and are connected with different colors and meanings (see pictures below which are not mine). Auras are energy fields around the body and come in layers and have colors and meanings as well. Often if a chakra is imbalanced or block it will show up in the aura. The aura interacts with your environment and other people. Why do you think hugging is such a great feeling? You are sharing energetic information with another person. I do a lot of work with this and I can see aura colors a bit but only in a dark room or white background. Sometimes my teachers would be talking away right in front of the whiteboard and all of a sudden I would see a cloud of colors around them and be surprised that without getting myself in tune or ready I could see it but it is because of the background they were against. I’m trying to do yoga more often now and I felt like sharing this information for anyone interested. Yoga really helped me open up today to one of my plants, a little rubber tree, I am concerned is going to die soon. It has one little withering leaf left on it. I transplanted it and right after I suddenly felt a large amount of energy flowing through me. I wonder if any faeries were around and decided to try to help the plant through me? I believe in faeries as well. Have I told you yet? Anyway.. I hope you all don’t think I’m incredibly weird after this post but I felt like sharing.

I hope you can make use of these pictures or at least find them interesting.
