Today however we have evolved to know we can change the collective mind and return to a long living cellular construction through nature and our mind power. Getting old and falling apart is a thing of the past. Even problems like joint wear and tear can be reversed. There is a simple and wise expression for understanding how to revitalize your body.”If you don’t use it, you lose it.” Many people fall apart because they no longer use certain parts of their body to the fullest and the body naturally atrophies.
The natural process is to be in a continued state of learning of regeneration which comes from simply making a decision to experience yourself in a new way everyday. Just feeling that we can regenerate begins to regenerate our cells.
Aging, as in western belief, is really just repeated unhealthy behaviors done long enough to experience the effect. It just happens that everyone are repeating the same behaviors. These behaviors lead to Ill health, stiff joints, poor body function, disease and medication.
Anti-aging, however is repeated healthy behaviors done long enough to feel the effect., regeneration, freedom of movement, all systems functioning properly and no drug dependency
This is what we teach in the process of yoga. It is where asana, or posture training, becomes a vital guide in the process of regeneration. Placing yourself in certain posture helps to compress and release (exercise) vital organs of the body along with the skeletal muscle. This compression and release flushes and encourages blood flow into areas of the body we don’t usually think about. Posture training also reveals injuries that may be lingering or unknown. Posture training compresses the body in ways to teach us where we carry excessive fat and helps us to flush fat and other waste. When you combine the asana/posture training with the mental and social aspects of yoga, you discover incredible power.
There are more than enough cases of people once chronically injured who’ve come back to dynamic health through the process of yoga. Today we have the wisdom to know how yoga supports new ways of regenerating our body and transforming our lives.
When we practice, we create great energy and this energy is directed to visions of health and prosperity while we are in posture. This is an added benefit we get in yoga because our mind can be free to visualize as we feel our body deeply. It’s the deep inner visualization and belief which can reconstruct our unconscious mind for good or bad and change our lives accordingly, good or bad. So when we have time to practice mind control we can transform ourselves beyond the thinking mind. It’s a double dose of transformation when we can exercise our body and mind at the same time. It is the believing mind that determines our health.
In the physical aspect, the body gets out of balance through unconscious repeated behaviors of an unhealthy nature. All movement be it lifting a box or lifting your shoulders while recalling a memory is a neuromuscular process that trains the body for further repeated movements as necessary. But as you can imagine from this example a stressful memory can have lasting physical implementations that may not work for a healthy structure. These repeated behaviors create structural definition good or bad.
Yoga posture training brings our structure into balance and reveals how our repeated behaviors are playing out in our lives. Then we begin to notice these behaviors more clearly when they come up and can make adjustments or transform memories in a way that supports a more balanced and harmonious behavior
This is where the wisdom comes in. You never have to say I wish I was young again. If you are in a state of newness, every phase is exciting. Our goals should be to develop wisdom through confidence and observation as we age, then utilize the wisdom from past experiences to make informed and wise decisions for our evolutionary process each day forward. When we use our wisdom this way, we become masters.
Keep it real. Be responsible and go get it!
I love you.
