Are You Really Healthy?

In the west and in other parts of the industrialized world, the masses have taken to cities where the lure of fancy goods and prestige become the priority in an ever shortening life span. The idea is to lessen the amount of time it takes to eat, sleep and exercise in order to work more. It is a glaring lacuna in the plan of happiness because when you look at the number one regret amongst the elderly, it’s wishing they didn’t work so much, wishing they spent more time enjoying the simplicity of life and taking care of their health.

But the hypnotic lure of glitter and flashing lights is too much for the average person to resist.  Then when the glitter and night life begins to lose its luster, the masses turn to producing offspring as a way to search for happiness and continue the illusion. It’s an age old symptom that has been addressed by masters for ages… the outward search for happiness.

In the midst of the illusion is our body. Our magnificent human form, waiting to give us the ultimate experience of joy. But instead many humans ignore the magic within and continue to look outward as if we have to somehow attach ourselves to something in order for the magic to ignite. Our bodies go along with the foolishness, working and fighting to keep us alive until the battle is too much for the slowly dwindling strength of our immune system. The onslaught of nutrient deficient foods, chemicals and sugar in the the outward search for pleasure and happiness shifts the focus of life to disease, and the realization that we can no longer search outward. However, there is still the opportunity to lay blame on outside circumstances and label ourselves as being a victim of disease. People can find authorities in medicine, to partner with them to continue ignoring the idea of personal responsibility for health. They can go on with treatments and drugs until the label has been attached and the outcome is assured.

The health of our life is a deep and harmonious responsibility. Many people believe that by exercising regularly, going to the gym and taking their vitamins, they are doing all they can for their health and any event of disease is therefore an uncontrollable misfortune.

Internal happiness is the key to health. I know everyone has heard this age old phrase of wisdom, happiness begins within.  The true source of our health comes from our energy field. Our energy field is created through the conscious and unconscious mind. The path of happiness and abundant health therefore lies in our ability to find happiness within. If one cannot be alone with themselves, sit in quiet without distraction and find comfort, they have not created the proper internal, healing strength. If being alone is uncomfortable and the need for constant distraction is necessary, then the path of fulfillment towards a life of joy is slipping. If one cannot meditate and silence the mind, the outside forces have taken control.

Meditation. A simple solution to everything and the most painful and feared process for many. How can something as non-doing be productive to health? This is the biggest obstacle of thought to overcome. The game of the mind. Do, Do, Do, Think, Think, Think, is the illusion, the trap, the snare that puts one on the fast-track to ill health and disease. We cannot create our outer self, our physical self, from the outer world.  The outer self is created from the inner self.

Meditation allows one to be more in control over the processes of the body. It allows one to perceive the subtleties that our body speaks when it is time to make choices. It allows us to be in touch with the knowing that we truly create ourselves from thought.

Take the leap. You don’t need anything outside yourself. There is no need for a device or a class,  a wrist band or a head piece. Just learn to be still. It’s that simple. Then the strength of self begins to blossom, the power of creation and true wisdom of health.  If one does not develop this inner wisdom of health, it will only be a matter of time until…..

 

Stirred not Shaken

The turbulent world around us seems to be experiencing a division of ideas on what it is to be human. We definitely have two sides expressing their presence.  It’s a peculiar spectacle to watch at the least. The dark and the light, or is it knowledge and ignorance, synthetic or organic?

Some entities feel humans should not have freedom or knowledge and instead be led into a pre-determined lifestyle free from unique expression, because unique expression would lead to chaos. Then there are those who believe the unlimited free will of humans will express be expressed in harmony and joy and discover a new world of abundance for everyone with no “one” in control.

This expression of creative differences may be referred to as “opponents”, but not really.

There are humans who have been blindly led to a life of disease and confusion. They are lost and will fight to keep their position at all cost rather than face the idea of responsibility for their life and their own direction. These are the slaves of a system. They will not face humiliation or judgment from their peers to become free. They will fight for their system as long as it keeps them fed, numb and entertained. These slaves are controlled by the few. A few people wanting to control  food, water, energy, employment to the system, media and entertainment.

Then there are the awakening ones. These humans have literally, like waking from a bad dream,  shaken off any and all beliefs from the rubbish fed into society by the few who have wanted to control all.

The awakened ones are simply saying no to the system of limitation and offering their precious human energy in another direction. The awakened ones do not want to change the system and continue to ask for permission from the big boss. They are creating a new world out of their exponential growing intelligence and ideas of freedom and living on earth as natural human beings.They understand that Mother Earth can more than provide for everyone, water, energy, food, housing and their is no reason for fear or control.

When you look at it like this, you see the one side using fear and tyranny to manipulate and control more and more people into playing their game, and another group simply walking away to play a new game. But those still clinging to their control game of human limitation want to numb as many as possible to become slaves and help to cage those walking away. It’s not possible. When one has awakened to their ability to create and make choices based on their desires for joy, their is no one with a greater power over them. It’s at this great understanding when the law of attraction is realized and life becomes new again.

The awakening ones know that its our simple joy to live as an example and allow everyone to experience their current beliefs as they are, that lights the way much clearer.  They believe humans have unbounded energy and potential and when harnessed with conscious clarity and passion can create anything.  So they are creating a world free from control and experiencing a dawn of human joy and creativity like never before.

Awaken, for it is better and easier than you may think.

Begin to ignite into ideas of a life with no jobs, no money, abundant food, water, creative freedom, and harmony.

Start with gratitude for you next breath, and move with joy. Keep your heart forward and just say no.

Message for 11-11-11

Anyone who’s looked at the world around, knows that we are in a time of great change.   We have indulged a little too much in a path which creates disharmony among people, and within Earth herself.

We see clearly what has become and realize the ignorance which created it.  Now, as intelligent beings, we must put that wayward, ignorant mind in transformation. We have to powerfully yet lovingly bring healing to humanity.

 We shall put our minds together in unity, to focus on the creation and  development of the earth we desire.  For as we all know, it all starts in the mind. We have to see it first, for it to manifest before us.

Let us first support the gifts and goals of those who choose to bring forth the wisdom and technology of a new earth. Let’s support those who speak of love and creativity. Let’s look at what we put value to in our lives. Who and what do we support with the powerful energy of our dollar. Let’s open the door to allow through imagination and wisdom a chance to create a loving and fun place to experience life and happiness for our families.

Everything we need for joyful, healthy living is before us.  Those who speak with wisdom and of love are in the space of a much higher vibration and power than those based in fear. Feed only that which we desire and only that will grow.

 So in this time, when minds unite, focus with great power of intention on the support and love for all humanity. Focus on the earth you wish to live with healthy air water, free energy, food and warmth for every being on the planet. It is our natural and inherent right to be here and be fed. No man owns, controls or sells the earth. It is ours to nurture to love and to enjoy. Together we approach a new world.

This is where we are now

It is a wonderful time

Wandering Angels

Wandering Angels

Sometime, within the time span of our lives, we encounter beings who present themselves at the perfect time, offering the perfect solution, inspiration, support wisdom, etc, just when we need it.  Many times it is as unexpected as a falling star, a gem in the mire.

Some people find these encounters unbelievable coincidences, while others realize this as a signature of the spirits who lead them along the path of their highest joy.

These beings are angels, wandering angels I call them. Though some may not actually wander, and find home in a secure residence. They have qualities that are usually unexpected, qualities that show up at times of serendipity. These may be the mail person with unequaled knowledge of astronomy, or the construction worker who can quote every line in a Shakespeare classic.

Angels have certain qualities that are run deep and show up at perfect, opportunistic times.

Then there are the true wanderers, those who show up, perform miracles, then like the changing of seasons, find  their way to move like the wind. Wandering angels, have a spirit which is hard to tame.  Their beauty and skills are not meant to be held in one place for too long. We can see these beings as creative geniuses, even tortured souls. It’s as if they don’t belong here. Many times they have a hard time relating to the earthly mentality. Some of these beings have a good foundation for handling themselves on earth while others have a difficult time getting along and live a short life filled with addiction or strife.

These beautiful souls find their way into our hearts. We feel the depth of who they are, and desire to know them. They may even be our siblings, our parents, or friends, but there is just something, that seperates them from us.

Wandering angels have  a place to be, although, even they themselves do not know where that is.  Even those with a firmer grasp on earthly expectations can find themselves wondering why they have come forth, and fantasize about how they will leave. They see the absurdity of the mundane lives humans create and the captivity of society. They don’t usually fit in, or at best find a place within the healing arts just to keep themselves well.  Wandering angels can be millionaires or homeless, sometimes both.

There are even those who know they have gifts to share, but are afraid to let go to find their true selves. So instead they succumb to the insanity of attachments and peer pressure.  Many of us on this earth now are angels, which is why it is getting harder and harder to fit-in to the binding forces put on us by religion and government.

When a soul decides to be free, when we decide to give faith the power in our life,  that is when the angels appear as needed. It becomes a natural process and a guiding light for our creations. At this point of freedom, our creations then become much more unique to our expression of individuality within the space of oneness of humankind. We realize that harmony with earth and angels is possible and all the magic we need to live our dreams is at hand.

Angels are multiplying and gathering forces in mighty strength, but not to overcome an evil force, but to instead create a new vision, leaving old paradigms to fade away. Are you ready to join in?

In the mean time, when a wandering angel appears in your life, give them hope. Share your own light, support them however you can, and allow them to be free. They are the leaders.

 

 

 

Words of Wisdom from Dear Teachers

Namaste all.  I have put together some of my favorite quotes from the beautiful Douglas and also my great inspiration, Andrey Lappa.  I hope you enjoy! ;o)  (I am overflowing here, so ready to go!) ~Shalyn Bauschlicher, Associate Yoga Teacher

Douglas King:

*The vital understanding of man on this earth and our relation to the heavens is discovered in the practice of yoga, through right living, and steady pose.  

To this I would like to respond with the definition I found when searching “Satori” (what I know to be temporary Samadhi in Savasana, corpse pose): a flash of sudden awareness, individual enlightenment…”It is often said that when you truly need a teacher-or that which will function in lieu of a teacher-a teacher or satori, for example, will fall upon you.”

*Our physical body can heal and regenerate itself through awareness and interrelated support of the earth, sun and sky.

PRANA, Life Force

*We are inherently supposed to be strong, healthy and vibrant through our days, happy and wise as we age.

*Natural living is awareness of nature and living in harmony by nuturing the native environment and utilizing the fruits naturally present for our health and well being.

*While working to perfect the postures, our mind is challenged to be calm and peaceful in order to work through physical and emotional aspects of the practice.

*Synergize the movement into a powerful charge of energy…

This can be especially helpful when breaking through physical and emotion barriers in the individual practice…I am sure you will hear me repeat the words of my teacher in our practice together, “The pose is not easy, it is not difficult…it is what it is.”

*Regret for things we’ve done can be tempered by time. Regret for things we did not do is inconsolable.

(Book of Vinyasas: Creative Flow for Yoga  by Douglas King)

Still one of my favorite books of sequences.  I love Doug’s classes.

Andrey Lappa:

*Your attention is your “wireless” connection to your object of focus.

*Ego is the separation from things and those around you.

*Yoga is non-duality (unification), control (sign of presence of consciousness) and balance (control of energies).

*Using only physical practice with no balance of breath, meditation and purpose can actually inflate the ego.

For beginners the practice can be very good and humbling for the ego, but when only the only focus is asana development without the practice of the main goals of yoga (unity, control and balance) it can lead to imbalance and strong dualities.

*Yoga is technology teaching how to be conscious.

*God is One with many faces…Oneness has unlimited channels.

*When we eat unorganic foods, we are ingesting poison [residues]…eat unorganic thoughts and you have the same problem.

*For many people around the world, wealth and happiness can be found in a handful of rice: it means for one more week they have life.  (And think of the expressions on the faces of people in Wall Street).

Swami Rama:

*…you don’t need much external information, you already have true knowledge within.  You need to learn to apply the knowledge that you have.

Happy pondering! ;o) Namaste

Love, Shalyn
