STOP! Cosmic spirituality is not about religion. Cosmic spirituality is not about fortune telling. Cosmic spirituality will not put you in touch with any of the gods or their rituals, traditions or rules. Cosmic spirituality is not about secular , religious or intellectual social networking. Cosmic spirituality is here to assist you in developing the richer and more advanced inner human qualities that are necessary for you to function as an independent adult spirit being who conducts all affairs according to reason and responsibility. Cosmic spirituality teaches you how to extend this mature adult Cosmic consciousness into community living in a spirit of oneness. Cosmic spirituality seeks to bring individuals together who have been awakened or who are at that stage where the spirit is demanding the awakened experience.Every book written by Victoria Elizabethaan has this as the main underlying objective. The content of every book, irrespective of its title, is geared toward the acquisition of the Cosmic purpose. This website has this as the main underlying objective as well. Cosmic spirituality seeks to prepare individuals for the liberation to another dimension that is only attainable by self governing individuals. Cosmic spirituality will achieve its goal by impacting each individual (or unit of conscious energy), in such away that the frequency at which they presently vibrate is transformed to that which is necessary for their liberation or expulsion. A strong belief of Cosmic spirituality is that we are here to evolve into maturity…that state of completeness…then we move on. The lower realm is not designed, and is not a permanent dwelling for adult spirit beings. The lower realm nurtures us until we are awakened into completeness.
Seek To Maintain Your Posture
All our movements and our posture depend on the integrated functioning of bones, joints, tendons, muscles, ligaments and fascia. Not only does our locomotion depends on this integrated functioning, but our internal organic movement as well. The movement of the heart, the movement of blood through blood vessels, digestion, excretion, the emptying of our urinary bladder … even the ability to breathe in an out is affected by our movement and our posture; which is governed by the integrated functioning of these body structures.
We live in the age of the computer. Many of us spend long hours in a crouch position peering at the screen. This position affects muscle constriction and relaxation and over time our posture , our ability to move and the ability for optimal physiological function becomes affected or threatened. The crouching position limits thoracic capacity and therefore limits breathing. It affects circulation and causes impingement of nerves.
The symptom that concerns the average person is the pain that working with the computer causes over time. There is the common wrist pain due to carpal tunnel syndrome. But there is also the pain in the neck, head and eyes. Some individuals may even experience neck stiffness and blurred vision. There is also that annoying pain along the medial aspect of, and seemingly under the shoulder blade.
It is important, no matter how busy your day, to take frequent small breaks to stretch and realign your posture. Doing so is one way to prevent respiratory, circulatory and digestive illnesses. Frequent stretches also reduces the build up of inflammation within the body hence reducing the risk of arthritis and other illnesses due to inflammation.
Posture maintenance is the single most defining factor as to how ambulatory you will be as you age. It affects our coordination and ability to get up from a fall.
Stretching should be accompanied by body rubs that improves circulation of blood to and from various body parts. Rub the upper and lower limbs, the neck and upper back and the face. Tuck your chin in and stretch the neck up towards the ceiling. Roll your shoulder backward and extend the rib cage up and out so as to limit the effect of your body weight on your spine.
Think big to maintain a quality lifestyle!
NOTE: Always contact your doctor before engaging in any exercise activity.
Your Posture May Affects Your Spiritual Evolution
Man was made to be upright. (Adapted)
In my mid-teen years I put much effort in voice training. I realized that the pitch of my voice and diction … articulation, intonation, how I delivered myself, my pronunciation … directly affected how I thought and felt about myself. What I never knew was that as I sought to refine this area of my body, a refining of my thought process was taking place as well.
This was an incidental revelation that came to me as I worked on my body posture, gesticulation and gait.
I realized that certain way of thinking was not befitting the pitch of my voice, my diction, my posture, my gesticulation, my gait, my mannerism.
As I made adjustments to these areas of my body … it’s like there is an urge to advance my thought process as well.
As the years went by, I began to incorporate exercises for posture maintenance as a part of my daily routine. Maintaining and improving posture is a very important conservative way of relieving chronic aches and pain. Poor posture is known to cause severe headaches, dizziness, poor circulation, neck pain, poor digestion and the list goes on and on.
Maintaining and improving my posture not only reduce aches and pain, it allows me to improve my thinking as well. The more I work on keeping an upright posture, the more I feel connected to the Absolute mind. Not many spirit beings are able to advance spiritually in a form that is not upright. There are those who have learnt to do so but they attest to this being an extremely challenging venture. The key is, as we seek to evolve spiritually, work on your posture …endeavor to keep it upright… as this makes your spiritual journey a lot easier.
Have fun doing the following exercise. How would you describe your posture, voice, gesticulation, gait, mannerism; in the following setting;
- Think back on a time when you got real angry.
- Think on a time when you were depressed or sad.
- Think about a time when you felt you had accomplished a great achievement.
- Think on a time when you felt you had a deeply awakened connection with the Divine.
- Can you remember a time when you were rather generous to someone?
- How about the time someone bad drive you on the road?
- Have you ever told your child the same thing for the thousandth time? How does all the above vary with your mood … when you said it the thousandth time calm vs when you said it the thousandth and one time while speaking from Mount Olympus?
- Observe your body posture/language in other situations not mentioned.
