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…

Yoga for PTSD

Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths.  Etty Hillesum.

The practice of Yoga has been around for literally thousands of years.  Poses are designed to increase strength and flexibility.  Focused breathing through the poses brings relaxation, and increases the flow of life-force energy (chi) through the body.  Yoga unites mind, body and spirit.

I tried yoga . . . really, I did.  But it did not work for me because I have issues with my spine that would not allow me to continue my Beginning Yoga classes (couldn't walk for a few weeks).  The exposure I received in the classes I did attend demonstrated how the practice of yoga can indeed relieve stress though.  I walked out of the first class feeling internally energized, yet my whole body was tension-free.  Areas where I held stress (neck and shoulders) were completely relaxed.  My mind was quiet and I felt at peace.

Yoga has been extensively researched as a viable form of therapy for individuals who suffer from Post-traumatic Stress Disorder.  In fact, the U.S. Department of Defense has funded studies on the effectiveness of yoga in relieving PTSD symptoms.  The preliminary results of one study conducted by a Harvard professor revealed that veterans with PTSD " . . . showed improvement in their symptoms after ten weeks of yoga classes, including meditation and breathing, done twice a week, and fifteen minutes of daily practice at home."

Often Veterans return home from wartime with physical injuries or disabilities which prevent them from participating in exercise programs.  There are options available for individuals with disabilities through Physical Therapy programs.  Check with your physician before beginning any exercise program, and for recommendations of physical therapy.

Never give up!
