day 18

Back on track now.

Changed from easy breath to Sun piercing breath.

Easy breath is too boring! takes sooo long. I moved through it rapidly and was soon doing the hold for 20 seconds. This wasn’t any strain, just boring. So I changed it.

Sun piercing breath feels strong. You hold the anal contraction whilst inhaling through the right nostril, holding for 5 seconds then exhaling through the left. It is difficult to exhale whilst holding the anal contraction.

Feels nice to get back to the regularity of 4 times a day breathing.

Went for a run this morning. Feel strong and fit. My fitness levels have been steadily growing, from lots of swimming and running and mountain climbing in Greece, also high altitude cycling in switzerland. Finished with a strong sprint. The last time I went for a run, about 3 days ago, on my return leg I fell into a very comfortable stride. It felt like I got into some hitherto unheard of running zone. I have never felt so relaxed whilst gliding along at a fair clip.

Started taking some good quality multi vitamins and minerals recently and these seem to be having a positive effect. Have been sleeping much less, 5 – 6 hours a night, without any impaired functionality; usually need 8 -1 0 hours.

Today got some phospholipids and flexseed oil, also some zinc. Been reading Patrick Holfords Nutritional bible and decided to aim for optimal nutrition.

I do feel the Pranayama has an amazing effect on my overall being. It is subtle, yet undoubtable. All areas of life get adjusted and tweaked. Bad moods and negative thought loops seem to be a thing of the past.

I have stopped eating sugar and am craving super foods, such as beet root, watercress, mackeral and salmon.

I think my love life is also contributing to my general sense of well being. Mantak Chia techniques really open up a whole new world.

Day 63 – New start

Since I had a heavy fall from my mountain bike I had to stop my regular exercise routine. Mainly because I was in too much pain. Very nearly broke my leg. Was on crutches for a month. Have finally healed. This whole blog was  a result of that injury, as I got deeply into yoga, mainly pranayama, concentration, meditation and contemplation.

I have found pranayama to be very strengthening, internally, but because I have not been exercising my muscular system and cardio I felt I got to a point of saturation with it. Now I feel it’s time to start working on the muscular and cardiovascular.

The new revised plan is to intersperse running (cardiovascular) with resistance training and specific abs workouts.

So my new routine will run like this:

day 1: Resistance training

day2: Yoga postures

day3: Abs

day 4: Yoga postures

day 5: Running

day 6: Yoga

day 7: Rest

I have decided to chill with the pranayama until I get my general fitness back up to par.

2 months recovering has left me out of shape, just a little.

As soon as I feel my fitness returned I shall restart the prananyama.

Posted this blog to my facebook today. A big welcome to new readers.

Day 61 – The worlds greatest ever pop song?

November 21st Full moon.

Gona chill on the ayahuasca for now. Still need to actually implement her suggestions before I revisit her magical realm.

I wonder if this is the worlds greatest ever pop song?

I got to say it and it’s hard for me
You got me cryin’ like I thought I would never be
Love is believin’ but you let me down
How can I love you when you ain’t around
And I …..

Get to the morning and you never call
Love should be ev’rything or not at all
And it don’t matter what ever you do
I made a life out of lovin’ you

Only to find any dream that I follow is dying
I’m cryin’ in the rain
I could be searchin’ my world for a love everlasting
Feeling no pain, when will we meet again

Why do you have to be a heartbreaker
Is it a lesson that I never knew
Gotta get out of the spell that I’m under
My love for you

Why do you have to be a heartbreaker
When I was bein’ what you want me to be
Suddenly ev’rything I ever wanted has passed me by
This world may end
Not you and I

My love is stronger than the universe
My soul is cryin’ for you
And that can not be reversed
You made the rules but you could not see
You made a life out of hurtin’ me

Out of my mind ,
I am held by the power of you love
Tell me when do we try
Why should we say goodbye

Ohhh,
Why do you have to be a heartbreaker
When i was bein’ what you want me to be
Suddenly ev’rthing I ever wanted has passed me by

Ohhh,
Why do you have to be a heartbreaker
Is it a lesson that i never knew
Suddenly ev’rthing I ever wanted my love for you

Why do you have to be a heartbreaker
When i was bein’ what you want me to be
Suddenly ev’rthing I ever wanted has passed me by

This world never ends not you and I.

My love for the songcrafting mastery of the brothers Gibb grows exponentially with every listen.

Went for a run this morn. First run for many a moon. My abs were aching from yesterdays exertions. Feels good. Very good.

Spent most of yesterday reading the dancing divorcees blog – most humourous blog award goes to:
