Life can be very stressful these days; with the global economy in meltdown and the cost of living rising, it’s not surprising that people are working harder than ever just to survive; perhaps juggling more than one job and raising a family at the same time. If you are one of those people, then it is very important that you start to bring some balance back into your life. You need to make time for you because if you don’t then you are likely to become overwhelmed and stressed, which can lead to disease.
There are many ways to bring balance back into your life; one of these is yoga. A lot of people are put off by yoga because they believe it is linked to Hinduism or Buddhism and therefore conflicts with their own religion.

They understand the positive benefits it can bring. Other people think that it is something only mystical people or psychics can do. I do yoga and I don’t have any mystical or psychic powers!

I recently read a quote that really made me think, it said…
” Listen! Or your tongue will make you deaf. ” Cherokee saying.

“When the god’s created Heaven and Earth, according to an old Eastern story. They were left with just one problem; Where to hide TRUTH. They did not want it to be too obvious, since observing the search, would provide them with great amusement. One god suggested, placing it at the top of the highest mountain; another on the furthest star. A third god said, it should be hidden in the deepest and darkest abyss, and another the dark side of the Moon; the oldest and wisest god said, ‘No. We will hide the Truth inside the heart of each and every human being. That way, they will search for it, all over the Universe, before discovering it.”

The unity of all life, is a theme that runs through the myths of the creation of the Native North American world. Native American peoples believe that the Earth is female. She gives birth to all the animals, birds, insects, human beings and plants, and continues to offer them healing from her abundant store. Her life force is imbued equally in minerals, plants, and animals, including humankind. Different species are interlinked, so that a plant for example can offer a human healing, but in return the human must care for the plant.Healing in this tradition involves maintaining and if necessary restoring the natural balance in the land and people, a harmony that operates on the spiritual as well as on the mental and physical planes. Medicine in the Native North American world means power or energy.
