Ancient Secrets to Longevity Fitness Challenge

Need to Exercise?   Short on time?   Want to add more to your fitness routine?

Challenge yourself with this ancient fitness routine to boost your health.

For 30 days take the 15 minutes to do these rites everyday!

In the rare book “Secrets to the Fountain of Youth” a man shares his experience of discovery deep in the Himalayas where he found a tribe of Tibetan Priests  who shared their secrets of health. These Lamas looked far younger than their age and lived a very long time.

Do these rites diligently over 30 days and see for yourself how much strength and agility you create. Start slowly the first week with as many repetitions as you can, maybe only three or four.   Be sure to do the same amount of repetitions for each rite. Stay with it and increase the repetitions each week. Give yourself the chance to work up to the maximum of twenty one (21) repetitions of each rite.

Along with any longevity program, be aware of your eating habits and mental stress. Stress is the main factor in all disease. Eating more than one type of food at a time also creates stress within the body. Eat fewer combinations of food and utilize more herbs. Do not eat late. Learn to stop eating after 5 PM. Do not eat sugar in the evening and learn to eliminate sugar all together. Eat more good fats. For more dietary guidelines read my HEALTH INSIGHTS PAGE>

Reduce alcohol and increase water intake.

 

The biggest challenge to these rites for beginners is the process by which toxins or metabolic waste are squeezed out of the system causing nausea or dizziness. This is exactly what the body needs and shows how purifying these rites are. Start slow and get through it!

 

HERE WE GO!

RITE number ONE

The first rite is a simple one. It is done for the express purpose of speeding up the vortexes. Spinning helps open the vortexes better than anything else. Spinning is also known to elevate consciousness and bring one into a heightened state of awareness. Children do it all the time when they’re playing. Stand erect with arms outstretched, horizontal to the floor and begin to spin to the right.  At first, adults tend to get dizzy easy because they are not used to it and the energy centers spinning open creates a surge we are not used to. Once the body becomes used to spinning, it become quite an energizing experience. stay diligent.

Also do what dancers do. Focus on a single point as you begin to spin and when your head needs to turn turn quickly either 180 degree and focus on another point or turn the full 360 and focus again on that single point as long as you can again as you spin.

Comfortably lie flat on your back. Place your hands along side your body and bring your chin to your chest. Raise your legs straight up and even a little more towards your head if you can, keeping your back flat on the floor. Do not bend the knees. With each repetition use a rhythmic breath. Do your best. You will get stronger as you go. you will amaze yourself.

The Energy of Oneness

Ten turtles were feeding in the waters below me off the reef. We were having a sunrise picnic. Such a gentle creature and fun to swim with. Look into their eyes and see the universal expression of the song. Look into the eyes of a goat, a turtle a chicken or the family dog and see the same expressions. The expressions we all know so well, expressions of love or fear.

turtle-town-07

Anyone who’s cared for an animal recognizes in their eyes the responses of their environment in its acute form. Each moment is a direct reflection of the song. Is the song love or fear? The eyes are universal.  Sometimes we have to refine our powers of observation to see clearly but they’re there.

happy-dog-02

The eyes of love are harmonious to the song of love, the feelings of joy. The eyes of fear are experiencing the vibrational energy of disharmony.

Harmony, comes from tuning into the song which feels like a melody, a vibration any human would enjoy. Since joy is what we wish to have in our lives, the more we practice creating joy the more it will be reflected to us. A harmonious song is easy to listen to whereas a disharmonious song or voice is almost painful to hear.

disharmonious sounds

To be in tune to the harmony is to discover the frequency which creates a feeling of perfection, a natural and welcoming vibration. “Perfection” itself is a misnomer. We are perfectly imperfect and life is perfect with both benevolent and malevolent behaviors. So what is perfection and is “harmony” only representative of good?   Good and bad are only judgments based on one’s belief system which are individually created so harmony has nothing to do with good or bad. It is irrelevant to the song.

When a beautiful song is played be it from a genre of metal or a symphony the order and method of the song brings forth a sense of perfection. Like a fractal managing the chaos of life’s ripple of energy. It is the path of least resistance, the natural path.

enjoying the soud

I don’t know why it works this way. There is a sacred harmony, notes played in a way that sings to the heart. It creates a joy we get to experience it. It is a method of being human which makes it worth the trip. The sweet song of harmony which provides joy in the human experience makes our days worth while. The harmony can be seen in the eyes of any woman or man, four-legged, winged or furry one. The harmony is the eyes of love, contentment and joy.

We live within this natural law, the pain/pleasure principle. All living creatures as small as the paramecium draw towards that which is pleasurable and draws away from that which is unpleasant.  We are in constant motion to make life more comfortable for us even within our own bodies.

connections

Though pain and pleasure are parts of the song, we get to choose which energy to mold our lives around. Whereas animals represent themselves in perfect truth moment to moment, humans have this unique ability to hide their truth and expressions to others. Those they relate with can choose to be in denial with them. In these experiences we feel the after-effects, the prolonged expression of our minds own prison, guilt and regret. We either learn from our experiences to develop a stronger path of truth or stay in denial and repeat patterns. We do not need to continue to experience war and oppression to know it is not desirable. We already have the programing to know what behaviors would be joyful just by reading the description.  It’s our choice to order from the menu, the experience of disharmony. We don’t have to.

woman-with-menu

Even if our current circumstance is painful, we can turn our eyes to the path of a better feeling, a more comfortable experience within and therefore a turn in events. True joy really is felt within. The outer experiences are like frosting on the cake, a tangible feeling as a result of our inner self.  When it feels exhilarating, we are in the place of respect and compassion for all humans within the song of life. This is where we see the possibility of our society in freedom and wellness, where the eyes of your fellow human are serene in the harmonious beauty of the song of ourselves. To find harmony we must first be in tune. Have compassion and allow for the bliss to be nurtured within all.  Decide in every moment if your actions have created harmony or resisted the natural flow and caused unexplained fear or pain.  Learn to speak less, listen more and be okay with keeping your opinion to yourself once and awhile. Share your heart through your eyes. “You must be the change you wish to see in the world” ~ Mahatma Ghandi

Maui Initiation

After an obscure series of events, we found ourselves on the island of Maui, the vacation spot of the world. The destination for weddings, honeymoons, family vacations, and the hottest surfing and ocean sports. The place many would like to live…if they could.P1140654

The Island has a reputation for attracting people at transitional times in their lives or to put them face to face with their fears. This is a theme we have heard over and over again here. Even a local magazine printed an article mentioning this vortex of energy that pulls people in or spits them out. Some people leave the island after a short stay with their tail between their legs; others run out of money or fail to accomplish their “plans.”  Plans?  The Islands have their own “plans” for you.

We arrived following one of those such failed “plans.” What was supposed to be a year stay managing a B&B turned into a swift exit from the Big Island onto Maui.  Fortunately, we found a friend to stay with for a while. He spoke of the “vortex”, the power of Maui; that it will manifest whatever energy we put out, positive or negative. It’s as if there is an evolutionary force of thought manifestation here on the Island. It seems many want to see it and be in it, because the island is so over-run with tourists and transients, the challenge to find peace on Maui is growing more and more difficult.

The amount of people who come and go is so great, it may take months before local people even begin to take notice of you. We’ve heard local natives enlighten us to what they call the “rednecks,” white people coming to the island to sell real estate and abuse the land. Then there are the throngs of spiritual devotees wanting to invade your personal space with a overly emotional hug. attending “teacher training programs.” Those with monetary wealth, can  live in planned communities offering a safe and familiar experience, living as a perpetual tourist. But in the real Maui there are some very intense people, and some of the world’s best athletes.

For me, the magic of the experience is that I had to deal with my emotional breakdown and find the strength to let go of beliefs and expectations of what I thought should be and tap into my own intense strength. I had to practice the art of embracing “what is.”

Like many, I understand the concept of accepting circumstances in order to move through them, but here the challenge was in my face. “Circumstances don’t matter, only state of mind matters,” I remember this phrase through a Bashar channeling.  In my humble, calm state of mind, I journeyed through these few weeks to discover more depth to this paradise on earth.

P1140715

My breakdown was initiated by expecting that at this point in life, my invention would have been far further along, bringing the fantastic income I envisioned. The great spirits had other plans for the progress into my dreams. Expectation can be a deadly emotional trap and my surrender brought forth new direction.

I found that Maui will welcome you and hold you closely in her arms, but there is no room for emotional baggage. With emotional baggage, you either have to distract and hide as long as you can, or come clean and find rest.

P1140691

Here, the self is first. The self, with truth and serenity offers true relationship to others and the world around. I have seen the many who have not freed themselves. Frantic, frustrated people with an air of chaos, even eerie, creepy and fearful expressions surround them, trying to find their place on Maui.  Even when one feels clear and strong, keeping clear boundaries is a constant practice. For there are many here who still live in the confusion of what is and seek to bring others into it.

P1140919

The Maui we thought was, no longer exists, and maybe this is the fate of the entire earth. The earth we once knew no longer exists. People have over-run the planet for the sake of commerce. My request is for the angels to come forth from the souls of who we are and realize the natural law of the universe, what is known as the Dharma.

Today,  synchronicities have been climbing and feelings of home are increasing. Soon  the perfect little home space will manifest, a place to support our comfort and where I can continue to share  gifts with the community and realize the warrior power  carried throughout my life.

 

Blessings.
