An Exercise in Sensing Your Aura

Sensing subtle energies, feeling or even seeing your aura is not as difficult as you might think.  We are sharing a simple exercise in sensing your aura that you may want to practice from time to time to awaken your innate intuitive gifts.

Hold your hands up in prayer position, approximately six inches in front of you, with the tips of your fingers at eye level.  Focus on the warmth of your palms.  Keeping your hands in the same position, slowly ease your hands apart until you feel the coolness of the air between them.  Now move your hands back toward the prayer position until you feel a warmth or tingling sensation.  If necessary, close your eyes and focus on what you feel between your palms.  What you are feeling is your auric field.

Open your eyes, and hold your focus on the empty space between your palms.  Gaze just above your fingertips until your eyes focus on the view just above your hands.  Do you see any colors?  You may literally see colors . . . or you might "sense&quo…

Go-GO YOGA! (Week 1)

Well, I finally got over my not a cold, not the flu . . . more like the "Smoky Mountain Icky Sicky" illness that's been going around the area in which I live.  Everyone has had it . . . some sort of super-bug that makes you sick for 3-4 weeks!  So that's where I've been, and why I haven't written a blog post since last year!  HA!

I got over my mountain fever just in time for my first "No Excuses Absolute Beginner" Yoga class!  It was last night.  And I'm probably going to tell on myself by writing this, but here it goes!
The instructor at Mountain Yoga was awesome!  She was friendly and fun, and she went out of her way to make us "newbies" feel comfortable.  She was also very informative.  First she demonstrated the wrong way, then she explained the proper way to do beginner level poses.  She also walked us through how to breathe properly with each pose.

During the first class, I learned how to act like a cat, a cow, a child, a table and a dead person!  I learned how to sit and stand properly . . . oh and how to breathe!  I also learned that I OBVIOUSLY wasn't doing it right in my poor attempts at Yoga-at-home with my DVD's!  At home, I didn't feel any real discomfort from the poses.  Yoga doesn't have that "no pain, no gain" philosophy (thank goodness!), but for someone in my (poor) condition there was a little discomfort.

When we were learning how to stand properly (the "Mountain" pose), I realized that I probably should have listened to my Grandmother more when she told me not to slouch!  HA!  Really, I never knew that standing straight could feel so crooked!  I have scoliosis, so I'm pretty twisted!  For me to make a conscious effort to square my feet off, align my hips, open my abdomen, raise my ribs and drop my shoulders (all while remembering to breathe properly) was quite a feat!
When I was learning to act like a table (the "Balancing Table" pose), I discovered that my balance is, errrr, NOT so balanced!  Believe me . . . it's WAY harder than it looks to stand on your hands and knees, and raise one leg while simultaneously lifting the opposite arm.  The instructor made it look so easy!  But my teetering body stood about as steady as a two-legged table!

For my first "real" attempt, I feel like the night was a success!  I left feeling energized with my mind relaxed and stress-free!

Did I enjoy it? Yes I did!
Do I think it will help?  Yes I do!
Was I sore this morning!  You betcha!

Be willing to bend a little!
