Shivani will be here soon and I’m so excited. I wanted to share a little information on the subject of her workshop Swooning Swara: An Introduction to the Nadis.
Let’s Start with 3
Within the human body energy flows through lines, there are said to be over 72,000 of these lines in the body and each one has a specific function.
Of course we can’t learn all of them, but 3 is definitely manageable!
Shushuma – goes right up and down the spine from our base chakra to the crown of our head. It is activated by our breath and helps to calm us at dusk and dawn. Ida– runs along the left side of the spine and stimulates the right side of the brain. It carries a feminine energy that nourishes and purfifies the body and the mind. Pingala– runs along the right side of the spine and stimulates the left side of the brain. It carries a masculine energy that is cleansing similar to Ida however it is more like fire. It is also activated by our breath and helps to stimulate us for physical and mental activities.
Subtle Energy and the Nervous System
“Health in eastern philosophies is regarded as a state of balance between these energies, where all the systems of the body, including mind and spirit, function in harmony with each other. And disease (dis-ease) is seen as imbalance or disharmony in this flow of energies. But beyond feeling good physically an enlightened definition of health encompasses feelings of vitality, strength, inner peace and joy.”~ Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
The Nervous system is the electrical system of the body. It connects the brain with the organs. It is an internal communication system and the center for consciousness, memory, reasoning and emotions. Health issues related to the nervous system are stress, insomnia, depression, headaches, anxiety, nervous disorders and multiple sclerosis.
The great energy in the subtle body leads to self realization. It is not a religious mumbo-jumbo but an actual and verifiable scientific method to prove the existence of All-pervading power of God. You feel this power in your central nervous system after self-realization. Many people have already felt it.
