Sun Flower Breath

March 30, 2012

I like to use this Active Breath as an energizer when I need a little lift or following a warm up in yoga.

SUNFLOWER BREATH

Take a nice wide stance (Feet 3-4 feet or so apart)
Turn toes out slightly
INHALE circle your arms up over your head
EXHALE circle your arms down and bend forward
I like to allow my fingertips to brush the mat
INHALE reverse swan dive up, arms over head
EXHALE fold forward circle your hands to the mat
Repeat several times.

You can do this active breath fast or slow; you can make these movements large or small.

Variation 1:  Bend your knees and you bend forward
Variation 2:  Just move your arms with your breath omit the forward fold)

Aura Photography post 2 of 2

March 13, 2012

On March 10, 2012, I had an Aura Photograph (Kirlian Photograph) taken by Joel Straup from Star Light Angels  at Thrive Yoga and Health Consulting.  I was anxious to compare my photo with one that was taken in March  2008.  The two photos couldn’t have been more different.  In 2008 My aura showed as mostly red with a bit of purple and a hint of white.  The image that I had taken on Saturday was virtually  rainbow of colors!

Yellow:  Teacher, Reader. Disciplined, an Intellectual, talent for Organization

Violet:  Spiritual in Nature, Mysterious, Intuitive, Imaginative, Has a very Creative mind & reticence.

Blue:  is truth, devotion, wisdom and calm.  Mind moves on a higher level

Red:  Over active, takes on challenges, mood swings

Orange:  Active Intelligence, very creative
Joel also said that I was still healing from an injury.  I nurtured many children in a past life, so I have need for children in this life.  He recommended I wear turquoise with many veins for healing and intuition.  Once again, I feel like my reading was pretty accurate.  I can’t wait to see what future Aura Photos hold.  If you have had Aura Photographs taken, please share your thoughts,

After my reading, I went to Kaleidoscope Angels to purchase some Turquoise Jewelry.

Aura Photography post 1 of 2

March 8, 2012

On March 8, 2008 I had an Aura Photograph (Kirlian Photograph) taken by Ackbar.  It was interesting and informative.  I had a red glow emanating from around my head, purple at the end over my crown and some white over my shoulder.

RED:
Physical Body: Who am I ? Why am I here? What is my Purpose?
-Re-evaluating belief system
-Choosing more respect for self
-Building Strength for change

VIOLET/PURPLE:
Knowing the truth in all things
– Cosmic Consciousness/Self Service
Precognition (Enhances artistic talents, inspiration, creativity, ideas, passion to complete)
-Old soul teaching others

WHITE (Shoulder)
-Stress, worry, living in the past
-People and events pulling on the energy field no more!
-Setting boundaries to honor yourself

At the time I remember feeling like the readout was right on with how I was feeling.  I needed a change, I was in a rut and kind of unhappy.  I am definitely happier and  calmer at the present.  I’m having a new Aura Photograph taken this Saturday, March 10, 2012 at Thrive Yoga and Health Consulting.  I can’t wait to compare the two and see if there are major differences in my aura.
