Get up, sleepy ones!
Get up, sleepy ones! The sun appears on the horizon, fresh air enters your room … if you live in the countryside.
Come on over, from the start. Stay in bed (and you in town, as same as you in the countryside), open your eyes, necessarily stretch (on the extension will be discussed later) and take a deep breath. Become aware of yourself rather than getting up as a fury. And please avoid bringing such a drastic tension into your body. It is not easy to move from finely woven empire of dreams into the world of matter. And for your soul it is even more difficult.
Open yourself to the day so you will find any positive notion for it. Put your right hand on your chest, and the left to the right (left-handed the other way around), which will help you to better target the first morning words or prayers, and just think or say: I open up to this wonderful day as positive events are waiting for me; Deep in me is love, harmony and peace, the feelings that I carry with me throughout the day; Everything I do, I do with a smile; In everything I do my big heart is present; This day will bring useful experience to me;…
There a much more other declarations. Depends only on your imagination. For those “concrete” you may just think of: Today big money is waiting for me; No one will be able to resist me; I will ride my car like the biggest maniac alive, and enjoy myself to the fullest;…
Do not think that these statements are inconsistent with life, see the last one: If you run oversomeone while driving insane, clearly you will not have a good time in the local jail. Therefore, as stated above you have ensured the help of at least one angel who will be your co-pilot in your“plane”. But I would not recommend such affirmations in the morning. Strive primarily for an accurate life, and the rest will come to the extent that you need to develop. Neither more nor less.
And we should not forget about a little thing: the morning statement shall be honest, let it come out straight from your heart. You will get the prove by the time it comes true.
Face and teeth
Wash your face with lukewarm water and finish with cool. It’s a great morning massage for the face. For your teeth I highly recommend that you take a little bit of baking soda in your hand (on top of a small spoon), then dip your toothbrush into a 3% solution of hydrogen peroxide, pick up the soda of your hands with your toothbrush and brush your teeth for several minutes. Wash your teeth and mouth with half decilitre of lukewarm water in which you have mixed some salt (Himalayan, Celtic or ordinary table salt – any of those is good). Afterwards take a small spoon, stick out your tongue and as far as possible from the roots of your tongue scrape slowly the plaque from it.
Hydrogen peroxide can be purchased at any pharmacy and the soda and salt in a store.
Your gums will no longer bleed and your teeth will be white and firm. For the first breath of morning beauty enough, right?
Spinning of knuckles and breath retention
The rule is extremely simple: spin everything of the body what has a knuckle, which can be bent forward – backward, left – right, either way. Start with your feet. Raise one a little bit up in the air and spin it up – down, then circle with it to the left and to the right. Do the same with the other foot. Then roll the knees, waist (wider circles; tighter circles, more left – right more to the front – back), shoulders, elbows, hands, all up to the head.
How many repetitions? Three for each side should be enough. And over some time you will increase to five. Fairly enough. And do not think on which side first. Left or right – it doesn’t matter. The only thing is you should start to work slower until your body remembers the movement, gains certitude. How much time will it take you? Five to ten minutes.
Pay special attention to the waist. It is the center of your body, both physically and energetically. A lot of breaks happen in there. When you get older your body will be slow, elderly, mostly because you had neglected your waist. The spinning of the waist.
One thing I can say for sure that I am in fact an artist in doing this. I swing my hips in any possible direction, and narrow and wide, pulling in my stomach just like a frenzied belly dancer; I’m doing gorgeous wide circles as a dervish or so fast that your mind stops. And you? Just go for it. And be imaginative. Enjoy every move of that part of the body. This will be reflected in your gait, your posture, your speed.
“Retention of breath” is not what you first thought of. The ordinary breath retention. It is a movement and breath in one. And in addition to you are also stretching. For a good morning there is no better physical therapy.
In the first exercise just stand upright with relaxed arms beside the body. Inhale and at the same time raise both hands along your body and stretch them as high as you can. Follow with your eyes the movement of your hands. Fold your hands above your head and hold your breath. By the time your body feels comfortable with that move, together with the lifting of your hands you will get up on your toes. While exhaling, you lower your arms and relax your body. If the ceiling is too low, as it is the case in my apartment, just kneel down, and so do the exercise.
The duration of breath retention? As long as you feel comfortable. Sometimes you pumped up and feel the need to squeeze more, to hold your breath longer. Do it. And sometimes you feel to be able to hold the breath much longer, but you don’t feel for. So don’t do it.
How to breathe? Freely, however you like and used to know, without thinking about it, just breathe in and out, and the body will do the rest.
At the beginning do three repetitions, and you do not need to increase to more than five.
The same position will be for the second exercise, only the legs are a bit more widespread. Raise your hands along your body and simultaneously take a breath. When the hands are pulled up to a maximum over your head, link your thumbs and with a gasplean your body to the left. Hold your position and your breath as long as you can, then while breathing in bring back your body to the center position. Again while exhaling bend to the same direction, hold your breath and the position and get back while inhaling. After three repetitions, you will descend your hands while exhaling and relax the body. Then repeat it all on the right side.
In the third exercise step out forward slowly with your left foot, put your hands behind your back and connect them with your thumbs (start position), and while exhaling bend forward. Both legs, especially the left one in front of you, keep stretched while you bend. When you have bent forward as much as you can, at the same time lift your head and hands behind your back, while holding the breath.You are inhaling and returning to the starting position. After three repetitions, place your right foot forward and repeat the exercise.
In the fourth exercise the initial position is the same as in the first. Fold your palms in front of the legs and while breathing in the folded and stretched hands you lift slowly in front of you, all up over your head. At the same time you bend the body and head back and throwing the folded palms as much as possible behind you. Stop breathing and stay as long as possible in this position, then while exhalingbend forward so that your stretched arms and upper body are parallel to the ground. Stretch in that position and return to the starting position. Repeat that three times.
For all four exercises you will need ten minutes. Spinning of knuckles and retention of breath – sounds pretty simple, just as it is easy to do. And yet they are so powerful techniques. They indicate a clear signal to your bodythat you care about it. What it will pay you off with interest. You will become an elastic string that stretches and relaxes. And above all constantly vibrating. Of Life.

Enjoy your meal!
When I think of breakfast, I think of a bunch of fruits: bananas, apples, pears, plums, strawberries, cherries, peaches, apricots, oranges, grapefruits, kiwis, pineapples,.. Straight away I also think of cereals, of oats, feast, rye, barley, wheat. Sometimes I also think of some fried eggs and butter, but we’ll get to that at another time because now we’ll stick to the first version.
In fact, we have already started our breakfast and this before the spinning of knuckles. Already then you’ve poured a glass of wonderful, clear water (spring or tap water) and toasted for the day. You drank the clear water, in short sips, while you were spinning the knuckles, or you had added a teaspoon of apple cider and honey (both or up to your taste one of those). You were thirsty so you drank two glasses of it. Excellent! You could not communicate better news for your digestive system. Just as you would have said to it: Wake up, my dear, it’s time for our daily socializing. Instead of otherwise used to roughly shaking and yelling at it: Come on, lazy one, get into the gear!
But let’s get to something more concrete. Cereals. Hydrargyrum. Organic food. I’m not talking about corn flakes or muesli, talking about the food the ancient Romans were eating when they went to the military tours. I recommend especially oats and feast and rye. A night before mix two tablespoons of it in the mixer and mix it with one tablespoon of oat or wheat bran, with a little spoon of dried brewer’s yeast, with some tree nuts (walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, peanuts, pistachios, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds,…), and dried fruits (raisins, figs, dates, prunes, apricots, pineapples, papayas, …) and soak with water. In the morning, you’ll add a banana and an apple, or any fruit that you like, a little bit of sour cream and crush and stir with a fork. Try this kind of breakfast and you will see the delicious food that keeps you up until lunch without any trouble.
But – and it’s really one big” but”! – before breakfast, say thank you for the food. To God, to Life, to the one who has the honorary position of spiritual authority in your life. If that’s not your habit, if you feel uncomfortable in such a situation (in your own inner or because of the others at the table), it will be fair enough to smile, feel pleasure at the sight of your meal. It will connect you with the essence that feeds and keeps up with you.
Before you go to work you will recall that you are a human being mostly made of water, so you will make your divine nectar (half a liter to a liter). That is going to be your drink and your food. So that way you should look at it and in that way it will affect you.
How to make it? Two bananas, pears, apples, peaches, or a handful of plums, cherries, or some apricots… well, you’ve already figured out, put into a mixer together with five to ten lettuce leaves, spinach, beetroot or two large leaves of cabbage, kale (find something green and edible), add two teaspoons of flax, a little bit of nuts (on demand), and about half a liter of water (if you want it thicker, use less water). Mix for a minute and have your refreshing and rejuvenating drink.
If all this is not enough to satisfy your hunger until lunch, feel free to go and get a hot dog or eat a hamburger. You have an excellent plant basis in your stomach so that all those animal fats will simply drown in it.
Water will eventually become so important to you that you can freely fill a liter of water into a transparent glass bottle, cover with a glass cup (let all be of glass) and leave it at the window or balcony exposed to sunlight. By the summer heat it will be enough for several hours, and when it is not that hot let the bottle be out there for six or seven hours. And do not worry that water will be overheated. Just when you return from work, you’ll have an energized beverage.
