Healing Therapy: Vibrational Healing (Internal) > Exercises - Relaxation

Print This Article

We all know that blood is life and if any diseased tissues are provided more fresh blood, it will heal. The purpose of all exercises, massage and gymnastics of various types is to get new blood to the tissues. When we mention exercise, we think only of muscular exertion, which taxes the body in order to promote better circulation of blood. But there is something finer which floats like an etheric essence of energy in the blood and which may be called vital energy, like energy, or the spark of life.

It is not the accomplishment of the posture which is important, but the energy current flow which is established as a result of the posture. It is not the perspiration – which is merely the effect – but the relaxation and the natural tone gained by the gentle exertion that really matters. This new principle of exercise (energy-current-release by posture-stretch-relaxation or contraction-relaxation) is a more natural aid to health than all the forceful muscle straining used in many other methods.

Rest is not a sign of giving in or being lazy. Quality rest makes a valuable contribution to your body, to your mind and definitely to your soul. There are some exercises which are meant for relaxation.



List of Formulae/Procedures under this Therapy:
Corpse Pose Relaxation

It should not be practiced more than 10 minutes and one should not fall asleep during this exercise. Do not retain breath in this practice.

  1. Lie down on your back with a soft pillow under your head.
  2. Close your eyes and start exhaling and inhaling slowly, evenly (inhale and exhale for same duration) and deeply, breathing diaphragmatically.
  3. First, relax your limbs physically, and then ask your mind to travel, with a feeling of relaxation, towards your toes. Do this systematically, centering on each set of muscles throughout the body and relaxing them.
    Start by relaxing your forehead, facial muscles, neck, shoulders and so on, continuing down until you reach toes. Then return back to head, relaxing each set of muscles along the way. Do not allow any other feelings during this exercise.
  4. After relaxing for 5 minutes, one can create voluntary tension all over the body and try to maintain the state of tension for at least 60 seconds.

Crocodile Pose Relaxation
