An Inspirational Quote
“All illness is physical, mental and spiritual, and therefore it is best to utilize all modalities to assist recovery. The body will do whatever the mind believes. The healing of the body and the achievement of heatlh are accomplished not just by addressing the body directly, but also by addressing the mind and moving into the field of consciousness.”

Energy Exercises: Tibetan Rites
One of the most powerful things you can do to increase your energy, lose weight, improve your fitness and lower your stress level is to practice Tibetan rites on a daily basis.
Without exaggeration, these five yoga exercises will change virtually every aspect of your life.
Why? A simple understanding of energy flow will suffice. The Tibetan rites open and balance the charas.
The chakras include seven major energy vortexes that correspond to your endocrine glands.
The chakras feed the acupuncture meridians.
Your acupuncture meridians feed the organs of your body.
And the organs feed energy flow to your muscles.
Too often, when people have health challenges, they turn to drugs or surgery when the real problem is blocked energy flow. Performing the Tibetan rites or other energy exercise such as tai chi or qi gong every day can unblock and balance the distribution of energy in your body, literally wiping away years of pain, exhaustion, hormonal imbalance and many other ills so that you experience true vitality in every aspect of your being.
The Tibetan rites are among my all-time favorite series of energy exercises. Follow these directions and build up to performing 21 repetitions of each of these exercises every day.
Rite No. 1:
Spinning: Stand up and spin clockwise, from left to right. Chakras should not only be open, they should also be spinning in a clockwise direction.
Rite No. 2:
Rite No. 3:
Step 1: Come to your knees on a comfortable yoga mat. You may want to double up your yoga mat to give more cushion for your knees. Place your hands at the side of your thighs and pull your belly button to the spine.
Step 3: Exhale and lean backwards and challenge your quadriceps muscles, keeping your buttocks tight and your chin one fist distance from your chest. Keep your belly button pulled into the spine. Inhale as you return to the starting position.
Step 1: Sit on the floor with your legs extended in front of you, your feet flexed, your hands behind you and your fingertips pointed towards the body.
Step 3: Exhale, lifting your body off the floor. Contract the muscles in the back of the body. To improve your eyesight, move your eyes and look in all directions, as if you were moving your eyes around the numbers on a clock.
Rite No. 5:
Step 1: Come into a down dog position. Bring your hands and feet shoulder width apart. Arch your lower back, pull back through the inner thighs and stretch all the long muscles in your body.
Step 2: Inhaling, come into extended upward facing dog. Keep your hands and feet exactly where they are, squeeze your gluteal muscles and gaze straight ahead. Exhale, and return to downward facing dog.
