Move into a fifth-dimensional way of living by engaging the energy lines between the chakras that form energetic triangles of light * Includes illustrated, step-by-step instructions for yoga asanas with explanations of the triangles of light created by each as well as their specific health benefits * Explains how the triangles of light energize the body, wake up our cells, and connect us to our own inner light * Introduces the 10 major and 21 minor chakras that form the triangles of light * Paper with French flaps We are all beings of light. Our bodies are pervaded and rejuvenated by energy lines between our major and minor chakras. When we practice yoga asanas (postures), these energy lines create triangles of light that connect us to universal light and energy. Focusing on them and feeling them during yoga practice can raise our vibrational frequency and help us move toward yoga's eighth step--the state of enlightenment. Drawing on yoga's original teachings, Yoga of Light reveals how to awaken and energize the chakra triangles of light with the practice of asanas, breathing, visualization, and meditation. Exploring the universal web of light and our place within it, as well as the body's electromagnetic field, or aura, yoga expert Pauline Wills provides a concise introduction to the ten major and twenty-one minor chakras instrumental in forming the yoga triangles of light. You will discover how visualizing and, eventually, feeling these triangles as you practice the postures energizes the body, allowing you to connect to your own inner light. This wakes up all cells in the body and imbues them with increased energy. The triangles also firmly connect us to the sacred geometry of the universe, aligning us with the greater cosmos. The author includes an illustrated, step-by-step guide to the asanas, detailing how to perform them correctly, and clearly explains and depicts the triangles of light formed within each posture and their specific health benefits. She also includes a series of exercises and breathing techniques to affect and increase control of prana, the life force within the body, as well as simple exercises, warm-up movements, meditations, and visualizations to help familiarize yourself with the major chakras instrumental in forming the triangles of light. Yoga of Light reveals how, by working with the triangles of light, we can each become more aware of our connection to the web of light and the greater universe. This book, for beginners and advanced practitioners alike, shows how anyone can increase the benefits of their yoga practice by engaging and energizing the triangles of light.

Living a better-feeling life really comes down to one thing only: coming into alignment with the Energy of our Source.

And now, they have lovingly and specifically guided Jerry and Esther Hicks in the creation of an innovative and valuable tool that promises to get us into the Vortex right now . . . and that tool is enclosed in the Getting into the Vortex User Guide in the form of a 70-minute audio download.
HEALTH / TAOISM Fusion of the Five Elements is the necessary first step in the Taoist practice of Inner Alchemy, in which one learns to control the generation and flow of emotional, mental, and physical energies within the body. It is a series of meditations designed to locate and dissolve negative energies trapped inside the body by making a connection between the five outer senses (experienced through the ears, eyes, nose, mouth, and tongue) and the five major negative emotions (anger, hate, worry, sadness, and fear). When the body is cleared of negative energy, universal chi energy flows freely and productively, nourishing both body and soul. The practice is divided into two parts. The first works with controlling the forces of the five elements on the five major organs of the body by learning the elements' effects upon each other and how to balance and utilize these energies properly. The advanced Fusion exercises then show how to channel the greater energies of the stars and planets to strengthen internal weaknesses and crystallize positive energy. By "fusing" all the different kinds of energy together, a harmonious whole is created--the key to manifesting an immortal existence. A student of several Taoist masters, MANTAK CHIA founded the Universal Healing Tao System in 1979 and has taught and certified tens of thousands of students and instructors from all over the world. He is the director of the Tao Garden Integrative Medicine Health Spa and Resort training center in northern Thailand and is the author of twenty-six books, including the bestselling The Multi-Orgasmic Man and Sexual Reflexology.

By following these teachings over the course of a year (and, indeed, for years to come) you'll find the serenity, self-knowledge, and resilience you need to live well.
A one of its kind biography, The Only Life is the story of a woman who blazed a path for herself and others in the presence of one of the greatest mystics, Osho. Growing up an ordinary Indian girl in British India, and rendered powerless in a domineering world, Laxmi went on to become Osho’s ﬁrst disciple and secretary.
What follows is an account of not just a life, but of the massive international movement which grew around Osho in the 1970s and 80s—one that Laxmi was at the helm of. Equally, what unfolds is a narrative, full of pathos, where her protégé usurps her place. Heartbroken, ostracised and later banished, she wanders the wastelands of America in isolation, seeking to rediscover herself by choosing devotion for her master over despair.
The Only Life is an extraordinary account of a life of starkly contrasting ups and downs. Laxmi’s journey and the way she lived continues to serve as a crucial illustration for dealing with life’s adversities. It shows that the path of kindness, devotion and awareness trumps all in these present chaotic and precarious times.
