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 3)

Can I say . . . Bwahahahahaha HAHAHA!

This week at No Excuses!  Absolute Beginner's Yoga was quite an adventure!

I found out a few things about myself:
  • I'm not very strong
  • I'm not very balanced
  • I really enjoy the corpse pose

We learned more new poses this week.  The ones that challenged me the most involved upper body strength and balance.  The cobra and upward dog both proved to me that I really should work on my upper body strength.  I couldn't even lift my upper body with my arms!  Sheesh!  My arms are like wet noodles!  Thank goodness the instructor showed us modified poses using a bolster pillow, or I would never have made it off the yoga mat!

We also worked on balance . . . standing on one leg (tree pose).  I sure am glad the wall was there!  I laughed out loud at myself more than once!  And I wasn't the only one . . . I heard a few others snickering as we all tried to balance ourselves.  It's refreshing to be around others who aren't afraid to laugh out loud as we try to regain the balance and strength we all had as children!

It really has helped being in a class with other beginners.  If I hadn't taken this class first, I'd probably have died of embarrassment surrounded by Yoginis who know what they are doing!  : )

I have to admit, I was quite impressed with the flexibility my instructor exhibited when she demonstrated the Bow (as in bow and arrow) pose.  Yes, it is exactly like it sounds.  As usual, she demonstrated the modified pose for those of us who just can't quite make it there!  This particular pose uses a yoga strap (looks like a really long belt made of cotton).  It's a good thing I could wrap the strap around my foot to bring it into position or I wouldn't have made it!

This class was definitely an affirmation that I truly need to be practicing Yoga!
