Vitamin D and Immunity

Vitamin D has in recent times come under greater scrutiny for its role in immunity.    And it appears that the role has even greater connotations that previously thought. According to peer-reviewed published articles of US NAtional Library of MEdicine, without vitamin D we are at an increased risk of developing a host of infections when serum levels are not at par.

All vitamins play a huge part in helping us maintain homeostasis and subsequent health. Their specific roles are in a constant state of evolution and more and more research is being done and a plethora of new information comes to light.

In the age of “the virus” and many other bugs that seeks to injure us, our immune system is called upon to soldier up and defend its home. Information is constantly being passed down through various sources referencing the use of vitamins, more recently, vitamins C, D and zinc.

We know from past teachings that these vitamins play a pivotal role in boosting our immune systems an

YOGA FOR RESILIENCE

The definition of resilience is the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties.

Some people may be naturally resilient to blows that life serves them and some not so much, but resilience is the secret to dealing with chronic illness.

Many chronic conditions are not always bad, they relapse or are managed.
As any chronic disease ebbs and flows, so do those that suffer from it.
Their capacity to ebb and flow with the disease defines the outcome of any diagnosis- may that be lupus, fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis, Chronic Kidney Disease, etc. That capacity is resilience.

To understand resilience a little better though and understand why some people fair better than others when dealing with chronic illness, we must understand the biological process of stress.

Stress is good!

Acute, short term stress is a natural process, also known as “fight or flight” response. Our bodies are built to direct resources to the right processes and help us act upon what is perceived stressful in order to fight it or run away from it.

Let us be grateful

Gratitude is acknowledging what we are, where we are and the gifts we give and receive from the universe.

Before the heart opens, we must surrender to our current situation, whatever it may be. We must accept that things are exactly the way they are meant to be right now. Everything is perfect, the universe is the greatest teacher and all of our experiences are simply lessons of love, from love itself.

Let us acknowledge what we are, let us see that we are all beings of light and love. We are spiritual beings having a wordly experience, not wordly beings having a spiritual experience. All that exists is sat-cit-ananda, eternal existence, consciousness and bliss. This is our true nature, this is the fragrance of the lotus in the heart. We are not the body, we are not the emotions, we are not the endless thoughts and worries. We are the neutral observer who watches the divine play. We live in the heart, centred, balanced and blissful.

Let us focus on our true nature as a single point of light in the centre of your heart, in the eye of the storm, the calm centre around which all experiences revolve. You can take refuge in this heart at any time, you can come back and sit in your lotus in the heart. It is a safe space where you can be who you truly are.

What Is Yoga And What Is The Real Meaning Of yoga? — Our Sacred Space

The term “Yoga” is derived from the Sanskrit word “Yuj”, meaning, “to unite”, or “to join”. It brings a perfect harmony between the mind as well as body. We can also say that it is the union of the individual consciousness with the universal consciousness. The ultimate aim is to attain self-realization, or “moksha”. Then, a person will be free from all his fears and sufferings and he will attain his ultimate freedom. A person who does yoga is a “Yogi”.

Lord Shiva is the first yogi or “Adiyogi”. According to history, Lord Shiva poured his knowledge to the seven sages, who in turn took it to different parts of the world. Agastya, one of the seven sages brought it to India, from where it took its full expression. Further, Maharishi Pathanjali organized yoga in a certain format. This is called as Yoga Sutras. “Sutra” means thread. Yoga sutras contain 196 sutras which explain all about the spiritual journey of yoga. According to the Sutras of Pathanjali “Yoga is the calming down of the fluctuations/patterns of consciousness”.

Types of Yoga

Here are some of the common types of yoga:

  1. Kundalini: “Kundalini” is the “life force energy”, that is, the energy coiled at the base of the spine. This type is all about unlocking the energy present at the base of the spine to relieve stress and negativity. It includes a series of breathing and warm-up exercises along with some challenging poses.
  2. Vinyasa: This is “Flow Yoga”. Here, the poses are in co-ordination with the breath, that is, in a continuous flow.

Reiki- Healing Science — Reiki energy

Reiki is the Japanese word for Universal Life Force Energy. When the ‘Rei’ and ‘Ki’ are broken down into their two component parts, the Kanji (Japanese alphabet) definition for Rei is universal, transcendental spirit, mysterious power, essence. Ki is described as the vital life force energy, very similar to the Chi of Chinese acupuncture, Light to Christians, and Bioplasmic Energy to Russian researchers.
We all have Reiki energy (Universal Life Force Energy), for it is our birth right. What makes Reiki different from other healing methods, is the attunement (Also known as the initiation) process which the student experiences in the various levels of Reiki classes. Anyone can lay their hands on another person and help accelerate the healing process by transferring magnetic energy. A person who has been through the process of Reiki attunements however has experienced a very ancient technology for fine tuning the physical and etheric bodies to a higher vibratory level. In addition, certain of the energy centres, also known as chakras, are opened to enable the person to channel (And vibrate) higher amounts of Universal Life Force Energy.

Reiki is never sent, it is drawn through the channel. For example, If I lay my hands on you to do a treatment, you will draw appropriate amounts of energy to which ever areas of your body need it. I am never drained in the process, as I too am treated as I “Give” a treatment. The energy enters at my crown chakra and passes through the upper energy centres to my heart and solar plexus. The rest then passes through my arms and hands to your body. I am thus never drained in the process, as a certain

My #1 Wellness Practice —

I have learned throughout my health and wellness practice that I truly needed to shift my mindset! The “Golden Rule”. “Treat others how you want to be treated.” You really need to take care of you before you can take care of others!

Are you truly doing it for you too?

That is a big question to ask yourself that really matters! Know your “why(s)”. When you tune into doing as an act of self love you are tapping into your desires and passions. That you deserve this and remove that doubt, self-limiting beliefs, guilt, etc. You make that commitment to yourself and make yourself accountable too!

You truly have the ability to achieve your “why(s)”! When you are able to relax your whole being you help yourself connect to your whole being better. You communicate to fully connect and engage. That level of communication and that deep connection you have with yourself helps you get back to the basics in what you need and achieving your whys! 

That relaxed state also helps you slow down and maybe even get some good rest too! When relaxed you are more mindful and present. You take yourself out of stress as well as survival mode. Just taking time to pause and just breathe and clear the mind is a big assist to your whole well being!

I am finally out of that mindset that I need to spend hours getting my fitness on! Long as well as extreme workouts were not sustainable for me. I burnt out and had minor repetitive injuries that were becoming chronic. Start small and little by little it will add up!

I have been giving myself more grace, patience and compassion lately! For instance there are times I want to get up and get a workout in on the weekends. Then there are times where I want to sleep in, take my time and get in a later workout. Balance matters!

Another big mind blower is TO DO WHAT YOU LOVE! Your wellness practice needs to motivate and drive you. Not bore you and become a chore. Think outside the box and try new things

5 Simple Ideas To Boost Your Wellness

1 . Write A Journal

Writing in a journal is a largely therapeutic pastime, it’s creative, reflective and a very worthy act of self care. You might like to use a journal to write down your cherished memories and experiences? Perhaps you’d prefer to brainstorm your career and personal goals?  Some people like to use a journal to write down their feelings during times of emotional stress. It’s nice to have a place just for you, to write down your uncensored thoughts in complete honesty.

2. Experimental Cooking

Always feel like you’re cooking the same old dishes? Why not get experimental, buy some new recipe books and set yourself some new cooking challenges. You could challenge yourself to cook dishes from around the world, choosing a cuisine from a new country each week. If you’re a meat-eater, you could learn how to cook some tasty new vegetarian dishes. Fancy yourself as a bit of a baking whizz? Why not attempt some
