    Ep # 76: Healing the Mind with the Nadis

    Ep # 76: Healing the Mind with the Nadis

    The mind is a subtle template of the brain. And the nadis are the subtle template of the nervous system.

    The nadis carry pranic energy to the body and influence our energy, emotions, and feelings.

    The main 3 nadis- Ida, Pingala, Shushumna govern the elements of fire, water and ether.

    How you manage the flow of energy through these main Nadis influences every aspect of your being.

    In this episode I discuss the connection between the mind and the nadis. How to increase the flow through the Nadi's and how to know if you are in excess in your energy flow.

    Finally, I share simple tools to heal the Nadi's and get your energy to flow clean and smooth, leading to an increase in joy, clarity and bliss.

    Ep #73 The 5 Elemental Building Blocks of Nature

    Let's go back to the basics. Nature, and each of you, are made up of the 5 elements- Ether, Air, Fire, Water and Earth.

    But have you thought about how each of these elements shows up in your body and mind? What about the sense that connects to each element? How about the action each element creates in the body and mind?

    And finally, we will discuss how the elements to create doshas, or your constitutional nature and how to achieve balance with the old principle "Like increases Like and Opposites Balance"

    Get your pen and notebook ready-this episode has a lot of substance.

    Ep #72: Attachment and Living in the Present

    Ep #72: Attachment and Living in the Present

    We often are told to 'let go', to release attachments, to live in this moment. But how do we actually do this?

    In this episode we discuss attachment and the doshas, object-referral vs self-referral, and how to work on our thoughts to change perception and emotions.

    It is possible to release old emotions and stored energy as well as attachment to what 'should' be and instead live from peace and the present moment.

    This episode ends with a release meditation exercise you can practice daily to bring greater peace and power into your life.

    If you want to start implementing these principles and create routines for health, join the 28 Day Ayurveda Immersion program starting at the beginning of each month. https://www.ayurvedalifeschool.com/ayurvedaimmersion
