Do you know your dosha?

You are a unique mini universe, and there is a constant relationship evolving between your internal doshas and the influence of other doshas around you, for example: the weather, the food you eat, the behaviour and nature of those around you, all affect your internal doshic state.  Ayurveda gives you the power to understand these interactions and keep yourself feeling balanced, healthy and calm.

Dosha is a sanskrit word which means “that which spoils, or causes things to spoil”, from this we can understand that the doshas have the propensity to cause disease in the body, this happens when they are aggravated, or out of balance. But there is much more to the doshas than their “spoiling” aspect, the doshas are essential to life, and they govern basic biological functions in the body, such as: movement, metabolism and lubrication. Understand what dosha you are and increase your knowledge of this incredible science of life and learn the art of nurturing your life.

There are 3 different types of Dosha’s Vata, Kapha and Pitta.  To know which dosha you are, take this quiz!

The distribution of the doshas varies from person to person: most people have one or two dominant doshas, there is a type where all three doshas are equally present, Tri-Dosha which is extremely rare.

Motivational Monday

I love Monday’s.  I don’t care what anyone else says.  It’s the start to another wonderful week full of endless possibilities and a chance to start from scratch or time to do what you’ve always wanted.  Here’s a little bit of wisdom to get your week started on a great foot…or hand!

“Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”  Christopher Robin to Pooh
A.A. Milne

That is why it is important to let certain things go. To release them. To cut loose. People need to understand that no one is playing with marked cards; sometimes we win and sometimes we lose. Don’t expect recognition for your efforts, don’t expect your genius to be discovered or your love to be understood. Complete the circle. Not out of pride, inability, or arrogance, but simply because whatever it is no longer fits in your life. Close the door, change the record, clean the house, get rid of the dust. Stop being who you were; become who you are.

Trust is not in someone, it is not a relationship. Trust is a quality in you. A man of trust… it does not mean in what he trusts, but he trusts; that is his innocence. Even if he is cheated because of his trust, that does not matter, because trust is more valuable than any small thing that he has been cheated of. You can take everything from him, but you cannot take his trust. Trust is your inner growth, your consciousness at its peak. Certainly your trust will come in contact with many people, but you will be trusting because trust in itself is such a joy, and distrust is such an agony, that you have chosen trust rather than distrust. – Osho
