Science of Yoga
Imagine the human body to be a great ocean. In this ocean, their thousands of different currents circulating into different patterns of flow revitalizing the entire structural body. The human heart acts as the engine that propels the flow of energy into circulation over the entire system. This energy is received from various sources, the air we breath, the food we eat, the sun that radiates upon our skin, and through the energy center we call chakras which act as a vortex that absorbs pure energy and discharges negative energy.
Every human body is different, so they will have a different pattern of flow. For the body to be classified as healthy they would all have one common factor which is a free-flow of energy through the energy structure. And we call this structure the central nervous system which acts as the distribution station for all energy that circulates. Our veins act as transportation's tubes that carry this subtle energy to re-generate hungry cells. There are certain factors that give rise to human sickness that is a result of blockages that formed within the body preventing this free-flow of energy. These blockages come in the shape of dead cells, stagnant energy, debris that have obstructed this free-flow of necessity.
This condition is the result of bad eating habits, negative mood states, and lack of physical activity. As a result of these blockages, stagnant energy builds up within the human structure living within the human tissue and our muscles. From a free-flowing state, the system freezes no longer distributing and flowing to maximum potential, as a result we feel tired, we develop disease, sickness, cancer and all other ailments. The flow of energy becomes weak, and disproportionate between the left and right side.
We become so habitual with our daily routine performing the same body movement that certain ill-patterns manifest. These irregular patterns are what give rise to mental illness and schizophrenic behavior. When we have fear, our body becomes defensive and commits certain movements in the shape of stress and tension. As a result the body re-positions itself into a formed energy shell in the shape of a mold that directs the energy current into a habitual pattern that feeds these mental defects of character. Thus, the brain which acts as the command center for the release of hormones, and chemical signatures is unstable due to these erratic pattern effects.
The practice of Yoga is revolutionary in that it places the body into certain positions re-shaping the energy structure with a new course of energy flow creating a new pattern of harmonious balance. These yogic postures are aligned with energy centers where different pathways cross similar to Chinese acupuncture points. The pattern of energy changes, opens and re-balances the human structure. As there are thousands of yoga postures revitalizing all the different sectors of the body, reshaping the energy distribution system with its own unified benefits.
Since our entire human body is connected to our personal heath and state of mind, a change in our molecular structure will result in a change of our personality. We can relate to this testament with the history that lies within the palms of our hands. The attributes that shape our fingers, hands, lines and nails. Our hands that tell us of our personality, strengths, weaknesses and our future possibilities based on our own will. All of these attributes are due to the way energy flows through us. Everything is connected. So attributes that remain dormant in our personality have the potential to re-ignite with the practice of yoga postures and a positive state of mind.
To practice Yoga correctly there are very important points to consider. First is the proper method of breathing. To have quality you are to inhale deeply, focused breaths of a long inhalation. It is a feeling you are trying to manifest and concentrate upon. It is a feeling of awareness with focused attention, silently meditating feeling the subtle breath. It is an experience of inner faith and tranquility which you are trying to feel that produces a strong focused force. After this, you are direct this focused attention to the area you are working on. For example, if you are in a yogic posture that works the lower back of the spine, you are to focus your awareness to this area. Every intention is directed energy. So wherever you place you attention that is where you energy will be received. So it is of up-most importance to focus your complete attention in awareness of your body especially the target area.
We hold a powerhouse of energy centers that have the capacity to generate infinite amounts of power, but they lie dormant.
