Do you have questions about yoga, psychic abilities, and what it has to offer you in the areas of physical health, mind-body balance, and exercise? This is something I have been asking myself recently. Today’s post is more for me than anything, so I am going to turn the tables and ask all of you some questions.
One of my Spirit Guides has repeatedly been popping thoughts into my head about starting a yoga routine (for about the past two years). I can be a bit stubborn about some things, like trying a new exercise routine and have mostly ignored the messages. Thankfully my Guide is infinitely patient with me!
She sends me messages out of the blue that I should try it. Emails appear in my inbox offering discounts on sessions from a local yoga studio. A high school Facebook friend is becoming a yoga teacher. All sorts of Yoga people start following me on Twitter. My favorite metaphysical store moved right next door to a yoga studio. You get the idea.
I guess I am not sure why I have such a resistance to trying yoga. I have done other types of exercise programs in the past like step aerobics and really loved them (I think I may have just dated myself there!). I bought a yoga DVD and mat almost two years ago and it still sits unused. I guess my ego thinks I don’t need to do this, but my Guides have other ideas.
Improving Psychic Abilities with Yoga
I have read articles that state you can achieve a higher level of awareness and consciousness through yoga. I found this article (link no longer valid) pretty interesting. It discusses that through a practice of yoga, some of the side benefits are increased psychic abilities.
I also had a guest post earlier this year by Maria Rainier about the Physiological and Psychological Benefits of Yogic Meditation. She said that the combination of meditation and yoga had many holistic health benefits.
Losing Weight with Yoga
Perhaps some of my resistance to doing yoga is the amount of time out of my day. I really want to lose some extra weight and need some toning, but only have a limited amount of time to devote to it. Will yoga help me to lose weight? I have also considered something more extreme like Zumba Fitness or P90x training, but I don’t know if I am up for either of those challenges. Do I need both?
Your Experiences with Yoga
So, if you have done yoga, why did you start? Is it a good form of exercise? Is it best for mind-body balance? What has improved in your life because of it? What do I need to know before I start?
Is it more effective taking an actual class, or can you get the same results from a DVD? I guess what I am looking for are some real life testimonials to get me off center and finally try it.
I realize after typing this article that I am sounding like I am asking you to “prove it to me”. I think what I am really looking for is motivation. Starting a new routine never sounds like any fun.
I would love to hear your thoughts and experiences.
I will be posting another remote viewing practice segment within a week or so.
