The four Toltec chords
A beautiful practice that fits perfectly with the wisdomteachings of Raja Yog
May your word be impeccable
Speak with integrity, only say what you think.
Do not use the word against yourself or for the médire ofOthers.
Do not react to anything in a personal way
What others say and do is just a projection of their own reality,of their dream.
When you are immune to this, you are no longer the victim ofunnecessary suffering.
Don’t make any assumptions
Have the courage to ask questions and express your true Desires. Communicate clearly with others to avoid sadness, misunderstandings and dramas. This agreement alone can transform your life.
Always do your best
Your “best” changes from moment to Moment. Whatever the circumstances, simply do your best and avoid judging yourself, blaming yourself and having regrets.
And what about the 5th Agreement Toltec Be skeptical, but learn to listen Do not believe yourself or anyone else. Use the force of doubt to question everything you hear: is it really true? Listen to the intention behind the words and you will understand the true Message.
Fibromyalgia: pain relieved by the practice of YOGA and meditation
Source: An Eight-week Yoga Intervention is associated with improvements in pain, psychological functioning and mindfulness, and changes in cortisol levels in women with FIBROMYALGIA. Kathryn Curtis, Anna Osadchuk, Joel Katz Department of Psychology, Faculty of Health, York University, Toronto, ON, Canada http://veronique-cancel-yoga.jimdo.com/gestion-des-douleurs-chroniques-par-le-yoga/ A Canadian study, disclosed in the Journal of pain Research, shows that practicing yoga twice a week for two months could reduce the symptoms of chronic pain and psychological stress in women with FIBROMYALGIA. This is the first study to take an interest in the effects of Yoga on the levels of cortisol hormone in women suffering from FIBROMYALGIA. This disease, which affects mainly women, is associated with chronic pain, fatigue, as well as symptoms such as muscular stiffness, sleep disturbances and Depression. A previous study showed that women with fibromyalgia had lower-than-average levels of cortisol, contributing to pain, fatigue, and stress sensitivity, according to Researchers. In this new study, the participants ‘ saliva revealed better levels of cortisol after a 75 minute session of Hatha Yoga, twice a week for two months. Patients also reported a significant decrease in their pain, as well as a psychological boost from physical practice. “ideally, cortisol levels are at the highest 30-40 minutes after sunrise and then fall throughout the day until bedtime,” says the author of the study Kathryn Curtis of York University in Canada. “hormone secretion, cortisol, is dissolved in women with fibromyalgia.” Another study, published earlier in the Journal of neuroscience, showed that meditation helped reduce the effects of pain through four twenty-minute sessions during which subjects learned to control their breathing and Put aside their emotions and their thoughts. “Yoga promotes the concept that we are not our body, our experiences, or our pain, which is very useful in managing the latter.” Note: cortisol is a steroid hormone produced by the adrenal glands and functions as a component of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HHS) axis in response to Stress. Hatha Yoga promotes physical relaxation by decreasing the activity of the sympathetic nervous system, which lowers the heart rate and improves the breath, and echoes back on the HHS Axis.
