Foods to increase Prana

In yesterday’s podcast, we talked about prana – the powerful energy and life force of the universe. Prana is a subtle energy that fills us, but it’s also the life energy that’s found in nature.

 

While breathwork and noticing our breathing is one of the best ways for us to tap into our internal prana and feel that energy moving through our bodies, we can also cultivate our prana through our interactions with the world around us.

 

When I first starting learning about Ayurveda, I learned to appreciate the power of food. What we eat literally becomes our skin and muscles and cells inside of us. What we eat is what we are.

 

And, what we eat can also nurture and increase or it can drain our prana. So how do we know which foods are high in prana and will nurture our spirit as well as our body?

Understanding the Chakras

Oh, chakras. It’s an esoteric term often used to make fun of people in movies when they’re a little too “hippie”. But let’s talk about what the chakras ACTUALLY are, how they relate loosely to Western medicine and physiology, and most importantly, how they can be used to add intentionality and balance to your day. No, I don’t know or believe that using the chakras will cure major disease. But they can give you great insights into what’s happening in your body and mind, and sometimes that’s all we need.

In Today’s Episode:
-What are the seven chakras and where are they located.
-How the chakras relate to the endocrine (hormone) system.
-The relationship between the chakras and the Ayurvedic doshas.
-How to use chakras to better understand your emotions, plus how to balance them.
