I’ve been outside so much here in Atlanta- during my time off, and because so much of the movie is shot outside. I can feel the Shakti energy within me being nourished by being so close to nature and feeling so free and in tune with the nearby river, the trees, and the forests. The pranic energy flow from all the surrounding nature is palpable!
When we allow ourselves to really pause, we can start to fully realize that there is so much dynamic movement taking place in every moment. How to get energy from nature is so simple, when energy naturally flows through us. Our body’s natural cycles are tied to the sun and the moon and the cycles of the seasons. The constant flow of our breath is our life force- conscious energy flowing in and out from Source.
Here are some other ways our bodies are in a constant dynamic flow:
– We have over 100 trillion body cells, and 98% of them are replaced each year. That means every 4-6 weeks the skin cells on our faces are renewed, and every few months we have new tissue to make up our organs. We can recreate our bodies to be healthy and vibrant starting right now!
– Our heart carries rhythmic messages to every cell of our body. It pumps over 100 gallons of blood per hour.
– The magnetic field of the heart is 5,000 times greater than the field generated by the brain, and can be detected from several feet away from the body in every direction. Love truly is the greatest power on Earth!
– When we our hearts and minds (brainwaves) are in energetic syncopation, or being in line with one another, we experience resonance, otherwise known as harmony. When the heart and the mind are not in line with one another we experience dissonance or being/feeling out of tune. That is why we must follow our true bliss in life! And that is why my guru Paramahansa Yogananda once stated, “There is incredible creative power behind the words of someone that always speaks the truth.”
It is against our true nature to be stagnant. Each one of us is a drop of consciousness, which means creative life force that has the amazing capacity to grow, learn and accomplish things in this lifetime. If you feel any stagnation in your life, then it is time to make a change. Find new and exciting things that challenge you to grow and truly feel alive, really feeling the sheer force of the pranic energy flow through your body. It could be taking more time to go on walks outside instead of being locked in a stagnant, air-conditioned gym! Or taking time to pick your own berries at a local farm or meditate outside. Okay those are all things I like. :) So maybe for you it is making a point to go swimming in the ocean this summer, or trying a new outdoor activity you’ve never done. Or maybe it is time to get a new job in a field you really love.
We truly are all connected. If you admire the energy or spirit in someone else, it is because you subconsciously recognize the energy and spirit within yourself.
