Your Body Language Shapes Who You Are

In this spectacular talk, Amy Cuddy shows the powerful impact body language has on our lives. She shows that just two-minutes of “power posture” has a dramatic impact on hormones, mood, and body language. We can now imagine the impact of a full 1 hour class of yoga postures on our body! Many yoga postures are what Amy would call “power postures”, designed to open up the body and take up more space. (Or open up specific areas of our bodies). This video throws significant light on how yoga works and it also shows that you can improve the outcome of a significant meeting or interview by doing just a 2-minute simple exercise before it.

Amy has shown not only through her scientific studies, but also by her personal example that it is possible to make significant changes in life outcome by practicing two minutes of “power posture”. She has shown that not only does this lead to “fake it till you make it”, but eventually gets you to “fake it till you become it”.

Two Twins Talking In The Womb…

Two Babies Talking In The Womb

Two twins were talking in the womb:

Tell me, do you believe in life after birth?

Of course. After birth comes life. Perhaps we are here to prepare for what comes after birth.

Forget it! After birth there is nothing! From there, no one has returned! And besides, what would it look like?

I do not know exactly, but I feel that there are lights everywhere … Perhaps we walk on our own feet, and eat with our mouth.

This is utterly stupid! Walking isn’t possible! And how can we eat with that ridiculous mouth? Can’t you see the umbilical cord? And for that matter, think about it for a second: postnatal life isn’t possible because the cord is too short.

Yes, but I think there is definitely something, just in a different way than what we call life.

You’re stupid. Birth is the end of life and that’s it. Continue reading

Our Family’s Ban On Being Busy And In A Hurry

Mutual Regard

Mutual Regard

When is the last time you talked to someone and they didn’t say they WEREN’T busy?!

A conversation usually goes like this:

“How are you guys?”

“Oh you know, we’ve got such n such going on and then there’s such n such coming up. We’re runnin’ from one thing to the next.”

“Oh I know. We are so busy too.”

It’s so common place that we come to expect people to say they are busy. And we think nothing of it when we say how busy we are.

But we should.

When’s the last time you WEREN’T hurrying to get somewhere? Didn’t have adrenaline rushing through your veins on the way to work or to drop off your kiddos?

All this being busy and hurrying everywhere reeks havoc on our nervous system. It keeps us in stress mode. And that effects EVERY system in us – immune system, digestive…you name it.

And our children???

Our children’s generation is the first to be so darn rushed all the time from a young age on. What do we think is going to be the impact on our children’s developing brains, hearts, bodies, and relationships to be so hurried all the time, to be so in stress mode all the time??? Continue reading

My Yoga Practice Led To My Complete Healing!

At the age of 32 Robyn Marin was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. For 9 long years she suffered. “Pain was a part of my daily life”, she says now. Then in 1999 she discovered yoga and found that it helped relieve her pain. So she became a regular practitioner and slowly the veil of pain began to lift. Finally she found that she could use the word “healing” to describe the process she was going through. Today doctors say that she is completely asymptomatic, which means that she is completely healed! Please share this story with anybody you know who suffers from arthritis.

Relax The Handcuffs Are Tight Because They Are New!

Police Comments

These 16 Police Comments were taken off actual police car videos around the country:

16. ‘You know, stop lights don’t come any redder than the one you just went through.’

15. ‘Relax, the handcuffs are tight because they’re new. They’ll stretch after you wear them a while.’

14. ‘If you take your hands off the car, I’ll make your birth certificate a worthless document.’

13. ‘If you run, you’ll only go to jail tired.’

12. ‘Can you run faster than 1200 feet per second? Because that’s the speed of the bullet that’ll be chasing you.’

11. ‘You don’t know how fast you were going? I guess that means I can write anything I want to on the ticket, huh?’

10. ‘Yes, sir, you can talk to the shift supervisor, but I don’t think it will help. Oh, did I mention that I’m the shift supervisor?’ Continue reading
