Naturalness is the basis of effectiveness. We cannot be our most effective pretending to be that which we are not, or trying to be who we think others would want us to be. To try to do so only pulls us out of the present moment as we speculate about how we should act – what to do or say, how to think and behave – in order to please others. The result of acting unnaturally creates a palpable strain on the environment, to the detriment of everyone.Take a Tour
We live within society which we continually strive to improve. To that end, we always want to be inspiring and encouraging. One of the many benefits of a vedic meditation practice is to begin to spontaneously exhibit the qualities of being courteous and polite. This is how a stress free physiology performs.Take a Tour
Our brains are like amazing, super powerful computers. Think of each of our brains (computer) as having a certain amount of RAM which determines its processing capacity. The more applications the “computer” is running, the more RAM is used and the slower the computer gets.
This RAM is used for all kinds of brain work, from thinking, recalling, analyzing, to the subconscious actions. The key goal for mental clarity is to have as much free RAM as possible to function at top capacity of your brain.
We know that not all our potential RAM is available when we want them. At least half is occupied with mental clutter – thoughts running in the background (of things we have to do, regret doing, like to do and anxiety over things we have not thought of doing yet).Take a Tour
The Sanskrit word “chakra” translates as “wheel” and refers to energy centers living within us. It is believed that when the chakras are clear, you can awaken spiritual energies and move toward enlightenment. There are seven main chakras (pronounced “shock-ra”) and numerous minor ones in the human body. Similar to how your body functions automatically, your chakra centers also operate automatically. Our chakras are interdependent on each other for harmony and balance. These energy patterns are in certain specific locations on the body, five along the spine, and two on the head, each correlates with its own distinct color, location and function. When one part of a chakra center is out of sync it may eventually effect its other parts and possibly its neighboring chakra. Chakras are connected to our being on several different levels: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. When a chakra center is out of balance it can mean that it’s over-active or under-active, or possibly congested or blocked. If this happens it is usually felt on a mental, emotional or physical level.Take a Tour
When you think about your breath as being your link to life, it takes on a whole new meaning. In our fast-paced lives, most of us forget to breathe fully as everything occupies our minds, except for breathing. We are often so caught up in meeting the needs of family, work, etc., that we fail to nurture ourselves. When my daughter was born I noticed how every single part of her body moved with her breath. It reminded me that deep breathing is as natural to us as it is a child, and it fades away as we get older, unless we pay it some attention.Take a Tour
There are so many different ways that people relieve their stress, whether it’s through exercise, meditation or playing an instrument. Another way that people sometimes overlook is through a more creative outlet, like artwork. Most people don’t even consider art because they think they need to be good at it when anyone can do it. You don’t even need proper art supplies because you can literally use anything to create art.Take a Tour
Vedic Meditation is renowned for being easy and effortless as it doesn’t require any concentration, contemplation, focusing or imagining. Other forms of meditation often require the practitioner to either concentrate, focus, contemplate, or imagine something. These activities are known to excite the mind as opposed to relaxing the mind. The technique utilizes the natural tendency of the mind to become quiet and experience bliss.Take a Tour
