An energizing practice that strengthens the body
Mind and body are connected through yoga and meditation is a part of Yoga. The Ashtanga Yoga of Patanjali speaks about eight “limbs” or steps of yoga which are Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana and Samadhi.
The first thing we are taught when we start pranayama is how to sit straight with the spine erect. This is known as Asana Jay (i.e. perfecting of posture). Pranayama is control of prana or vital breath. Pratyahar is withdrawing the senses inward. Dharana is fixing the attention on a single object i.e. concentration. Dhyana is meditation or becoming thoughtless. Samadhi is the experience of unity with God and a kind of superconciousness.
Meditation is a technique that we can use at any time and place to quieten the mind and restore peace and harmony within ourselves. This subsequently gets manifested in our outward life as well. Meditation is intended not to stop us thinking but to help us to produce order in the midst of our confusion. By relaxing our mind through meditation, we can clear the chatter for a time and experience a renewed sense of energy. This enables us to bring identity, clarity and freedom to take control over our lives to become healthier and happier.
Accumulated stress is the root cause of a high proportion of illnesses, including many common and serious conditions. By eliminating stress, meditation offers important benefits for the cure and prevention of a wide range of health problems and allows the mind and body to function with maximum effectiveness. This leads to good health and longevity.
The manifold benefits of meditation can be categorized as under:
* improved hearing and mental performance * improved memory * improvements in psychosomatic and stress related disorders * benefits for mother and child during pregnancy and childbirth * increased muscular tone and flexibility * Posture gets corrected, allowing deep breathing * Resetting of the navel point to strengthen the lower triangle * Strengthening of the nervous system * Improving resistance to stress and disease * Opening of the chakras, rendering you more loving and open to others * Deep relaxation
Meditation can also be termed as an energizing practice that strengthens the body and improves concentration abilities.

Unlocking the Secrets
Psychic abilities are existent in everyone; it is only that some people know how to harness and use these abilities to their benefit. It is only with the right training that your psychic powers are enhanced to induce psychic spirituality.
Spirituality can refer to an ultimate or immaterial reality; an inner path enabling a person to discover the essence of his or her being, or the “deepest values and meanings by which people live.” Spiritual practices, including meditation, prayer and contemplation, are intended to develop an individual's inner life; such practices often lead to an experience of connectedness with a larger reality: a more comprehensive self; other individuals or the human community; nature or the cosmos; or the divine realm. Spirituality is often experienced as a source of inspiration or orientation in life. It can encompass belief in immaterial realities or experiences of the immanent or transcendent nature of the world.

Mistakes and mystics
Survival and beyond discourse
There are only two kinds of people in the world – mystics and mistakes. If you are seeing life just the way it is, you are a mystic in the world’s eyes. If there are big errors in your perception, you are a mistake considering yourself to be normal.

Stories from A-Z
Spirituality, Spiritual Thoughts
Nowadays it is often standard not only to add your website to a list of webpages using a short description but to write an informative story which points to your site. Also we offer you the possibility to tell your readers more about yourself thereby making a lasting impression which would be impossible by simply using a title and a short description alone.
Texts for the internet should be written differently than stories for a newspaper or a book: Since most of the visitors of an internet page only skim through the offered texts in order to find the information they seek as quickly as possible a solid structure of your story is crucial for its success. It is therefore best to already start your text with a summarizing overview and to only then present the detail information step by step - this way your readers will know from the beginning what the text will be about.
The different ideas of your story should be arranged as short paragraphs which should not be longer than 3-4 sentences. Certainly your text starts with a main heading that summarizes the content of the story, that is to the point and that is not longer than 10 words - but also subheadings should be used as additional structural elements. Furthermore important parts of the story should be written in bold or italics if they are citations. Since italic characters can be hard to read on screen alternatively citations can be highlighted using quotation marks or (as we will see later) they can be written in colour if they are especially important for your story. But please make sure that you don't overuse coloured or bold text since your story otherwise can become confusing.
All structural elements mentioned so far make it easier to quickly skim through a text and to find the information sought. For the same purpose also bulleted lists are ideal especially if you want to talk about different facts that you have to present in a structured manner. It is also true that numbered lists can enhance the overall clearness if you want to talk about a fixed number of ideas (e.g. The 10 best Methods to make your Website famous). Also images and references structure a story: Images can enhance the interest for a text further by using an informative caption and references can lead to the originator of a quotation - these citations are best marked by coloured text to make them stand out even more.
Also the stories on the page http://www.alte
-thoughts.html were structured this way in order to allow a quick reading thereby helping the visitors of this page to easily find the information they are seeking. If you want to point to this page you can use the following information about our website and the page itself:
- Website: Our short description is "Webshop for Alternative Health, Jewelry and Books about Crystal Healing".
- Page: Websites and stories about "Spirituality, Spiritual Thoughts" can be found on this page.
Well structured stories are an important possibility to make the own website more popular and to stress your personal expertise in a field of knowledge. If you take care that your visitors can skim through the content of your stories in order to find the important things they want to know you will soon gain additional guests for your website thereby increasing your reputation on the internet.
