an experience I thought I would share

well for the last week I had felt in my negative mode, which I get in sometimes. but I have still done my practice of asanas, breathing, and meditation.

I had also changed my diet in the last couple of weeks, some more rice and beans and vegtables. so after being stuck for basically the whole week, meaning normal release of bodily wastes, it seems to have gotten released, I wont go into details on that. After that had gotten released, a lot of my negative emotions seem to have went with it. I had observed this in myself before a few months ago. the more times this happens the more I observe, the more I learn, the more questions I will ask, and the more I will learn from those answers as well. I will discuss this on monday with the teacher of the yoga class I will be attending

So the main points I am getting personally from this is

body can affect mind, when body gets stuck mind may get stuck.

be observant when you make a change in diet if it changes a pattern in daily elimination routine your emotions may go with it as well

who knows maybe there is a correlation or maybe not

Just thought I would share an experience,

Hi Tubeseeker,

I have found when my intestines are all blocked up that this creates toxins to leak into the blood system and this makes the energy level drop as the body tries to rid itself of excess toxins. When energy levels drop it is easier to identify with thoughts, may be negative ones, and this in turn creates emotion. That's my observation.

with constant practice and determination, we can be so aware in each moment to catch or see these thoughts, even when energy is low in the body or we are sick, and we will surely reach a point where this doesn't matter anymore and we no longer react to the negative thoughts, and so not creating emotion.

Let's keep it up...even if we fall into reacting to thoughts... the time we are stuck in this will lessen...as our friend Hubert mentioned in 'what does yoga mean to you" thread...

be in peace,

Soul

I am new here and find your words quite inspirational. Constant practice and determination are most important things for me also in life. It really helps.

You hear the words when you are open...a good quality....not everyone is ready to hear truth, so you are both the inspirational ones.

be in peace,

Soul

Hi i am just finished reading a book called ' Stop Thinking Start Living' by Richard Carlson which say's the opposite of what you concludes. It probably could help you a lot more than changing your diet.

Keep in mind as well that In the yoga sutras the first sutra states ' stop the mind from thinking' because it is the cause of everything you feel or do
