When we find ourselves “in the Flow,” life seemingly presents more vibrant colors of reality to savor and enjoy in almost timeless states of smooth transitions. We are more creative, perform better, have increased motivation, and find somewhat effortlessly driven spaces; in tune with our inner rhythm and the collaborative environment’s synchronistic beats.
So, like a unique instrument or full pallet of colors at hand, could we finely tune and summon this expansive Flow State through possible on-demand?
Science defines Flow as a “subjective state during holistic involvement in a certain activity.” In other words, a change in our perception.
The French writer Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr coined the phrase, “plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose” best translated as — The More Things Change, The More They Remain The Same.
Exploring this expression more closely posits an apparent connection of two contrasting ideas: Impermanence and Continuity.
Perhaps, strange as it may seem, let’s consider a quote from the New Testament. In his own way, using words and ideas that people of his time would understand, Jesus Christ was trying to teach about impermanence. As you read the quote, feel free to substitute “Nature,” “the Universe,” “Awakened Consciousness,” or an…
We’re going to make a very bold statement. Are you ready? Here it goes:
Yoga practices could influence genetic expression. In other words, yoga techniques could control the behavior of your genes, creating greater freedom, and experiential life richness.We’d better get right down to backing that statement up with some scientific evidence, right? To do that, we have to begin with the definition of “epigenetics.”
As you know, our genome (DNA structures and patterns) are present from birth. Generally, it remains “as is” until we die. This genome is responsible for most of who we are physically, and to some…
Do you take time to cleanse during the tides of life and reignite ― your whole self-awareness?
Would you believe that an academic article begins with the sentence: “Ritual returns us to the center of who we are”?!
While the researchers concentrated their study on an older population, the takeaways from their research are relevant for any age group:
Rituals can help people re-motivate, re-energize, and regain their purpose; while structuring the delicate dance of life in motion.
Participating in group rituals builds a sense of community, a shared identity, a feeling that “I belong; I am not alone.”
Yoga is much more than just the physical. Using the art and science of breathing called Pranayama can take your practice to a new level.
During your Yoga practice, is your breath control an integral part? Or is it just an exercise you do before you “begin” or after you “end?” Perhaps you don’t even pay attention to your breath at all…except to gasp in some air when you remember to do so.
According to the ancient Yogic texts, our bodies contain energy called prana. This prana flows through 72,000 nadis or special energy channels throughout our body.
Meta: Are you living a life that honors or betrays who you really are? This article explores a lifes’ path, in alignment with personal integrity.
Harsh question, right? Yet, we must have the courage to ask ourselves such questions if we want to truly live within our highest vibrational accord.
So, let’s ask another way: “ Are you living your life with integrity? ” Being honest and morally upright is one aspect, and we’re including that. However, we are more interested in the “wholeness, true to your values” aspect of this idea.
