Enlightening Movie Challenge

Enlightening Movie Challenge

Bring On the Good Vibes


In Yoga we learn that each moment in our lives has a certain vibration to it.  It is similar to when you go to church and are filled with the Holy Spirit, when you finish a spiritual yoga class or when you are chanting mantra, and feel that hum or as my husband puts it, the “wa,wa, wa”.  This is a vibration.  Each vibration resonates on a certain frequency.  The goal is to stay in the upper levels.  These levels are lowered by negative thoughts, words, beliefs; by taking anything into your body that is a suppressant such as drugs or alcohol; by eating foods that are not pure such as processed foods, foods high in sugar, meats, and anything sprayed down with chemicals; and by hanging out in areas or with other people who live in these lower vibrations, (you know where and who they are).  These levels are raised by positive thoughts, words, beliefs; taking into your body sattvic foods, foods that are pure, that are cooked with good intentions; by keeping the body as pure in every way that you can; and by spending time with positive people and in places of higher vibrations ( this could be in nature).

 

My Realization


So when it comes to movies, which I love; I have realized that I can be living the day in the upper vibrations of love and light and when we turn on the TV to a murder mystery or crime show, I actually begin to get grumpy or agitated. So just recently I have decided that I wouldn’t watch anything with a low vibration, only movies and shows that are positive.  No murder, no crime shows, no dark plots, dark themes, scary characters.  I will only watch positive, inspiring, uplifting movies.  (With the exception of Breaking Dawn, hey I’m human!)

 

I thought I would share for those of you that are interested. I have purchased Titans of Yoga, and Living Yoga and will plan a couple movie nights at the studio in near future.
