Prophylactic self-isolation for music and relaxation. Day 143rd.

Listening (feeling) to the music of soul and emotional freedom

  • The Song of the Golden Dragon by Estas Tonne
After this level of fingering, his guitar is never going to leave him for another man, – comment by Gabriela Lomonaco on youtube channel

Estas Tonne, the Ukrainian guitarist, finds himself in several cultural references without identifying himself with a single nation or country, rather with the cultural richness of the world. Virtuoso of a guitar. His music is getting shaped by emotional expression and joins various music genres, opening the access to emotions itself (1). As described by one of the commentator on youtube channel, he is “The Jesus with a guitar“.

  • ROOTS – The Return to the Inner Temple by Estas Tonne and Zola Dubnikova
time to return to our inner temple

In our souls we are all /…/ creators /…/ When we are in tune with the rhythm of the Earth, with our inner rhythm, we know how to walk on the edge of time and worlds /…/ Earth, mother, the deep support underneath our own feet. Woman, the mystical force from which we all come…

Prophylactic self-isolation for drawing, creation and inspiration. Day 142nd.

Here is the exercise from my online course on illustration techniques by the painter and illustrator Adolfo Serra are completed:

PRACTICE EXERCISE 2.1

All stories that a painting hides

The task: Choose the painting you like, the one which inspires you. Analyse the painting, the form, the composition, the technique, colors, context of the work…

Draw it by yourself, use different techniques, patterns, points of view, draw without thinking, let yourself go and feel.

How I completed the task:

  • Just few days before reading this task, I was turning over the pages of Picasso art works. One picture captured my sight. Can not explain why and how, but it went deeply in my eyes, I saw it in my imagination for a few days later, even without looking at it:
Young acrobat on a ball by Pablo Picasso, 1905
  • Best time for inner relax to complete the creative task was at 5 am: silence; intimacy with a chosen painting, white paper sheet and colors; the magic of arising day. I have completed ten sketches, but feel it is not yet enought:
Using extra charcoal pencils GIOCONDA 8811/2, 8811/3, 8811/4, charcoal pencils, soft pastel pencils GIOCONDA; collage elements (glued sea sand), rubber technique
Using soft pastel pencils GIOCONDA and rubber technique

Applause! 🙂

Part 8 from X

About the balance between physical and emotional bodies

On the left:
Resting energy expenditure of organs
and tissues (1). “Other” consisted of adipose tissue, bone, skin, intestine and glands.
On the right:
Emotional needs to keep the body toned up.

Keeping physical and emotional bodies properly supplied with essential nutritious and “emotional”calories, contributes to a balance on physical and emotional levels.

As a result, it leads to self-satisfaction, better well-being and not overeating.

Well-feeling induces well-eating and one should work on it daily

“Well, the Sun is Sun, the Moon is Moon, what is interesting about it? I can always search, if needed, Moon phase on my phone app. Honestly, I do not need”.

That could be the standard answer. “I could search on my phone app”…

Well, how to feel the connection with the planet(s) if looking for them on an electronic device, not in reality? We definitely have the connection to electronic devices, but not to any planet, because we do not pay any attention to the great things around, only to small things which do not matter for living being.

Today, on July 30, 2020, till 8 pm it is Ekadashi time – the time for fasting and self-cleaning. Ekadashi is calculated according to the Moon phase. It is believed that on this day, approximately twice a month, the body does not need any food and could withstand without food easily, and clean itself from the inside.

While following Ekadashi fasting, one should keep in mind – the Moon is not on a phone app, the Moon is on the sky

The Moon is in the sky

EQUIPMENT NEEDEDspecific kitchen equipment, if not counting regular tools like pots, spoons or knifes

PASSIVE TIME for this recipe is time for fruits to sit on a counter overnight or at least 4 hours before juicing (if fruits were in a refrigerator before). While fruits are taken out from a refrigerator and put to a warmer place (on a counter), warm will produce more natural sugar in fruits, they will be much tastier and juicy.

  3. turn on a juicer and juice!
  4. take a pulp of processed fruits and put it into a juicer once again
  5. dilute the juice with water and it’s ready!

TIPS & WHY

  • fiber of grapefruit should be removed before juicing, because:
    • it has bitter taste
    • banana-vegan muffins will be cooked later, so, there is no need to chew non-tasty bitter fiber in muffins!
  • pulp of processed fruits should be squeezed twice, because:
    • it produces more juice
    • pulp for banana-vegan muffins should not be too moist, it should be squeezed well for not to over-moisten a dough

ActivityWhat to do?DurationScore
Slow water drinkingDrink a glass of water in the morning, slowly while sitting and relaxing1 min5
One of the activities to increase emotional stability and well-feeling

Why drinking water slowly while sitting is so important?

BECAUSE the water is supposed to have the memory of the divine, supposed to be in touch with the deity and there is supposed to be memory and you take it and it’s supposed to work

by Sadhguru (2)

If water is being violently pumped and is travelling to your house through many turns in lead or plastic pipes, with all these bends and turns, much negativity happens to the water

by Sadhguru (3)

The reasons WHY by TNN (4):

  • According to Ayurveda, our bodies are designed in a way so that we get maximum benefits when we sit down and exercise our body
  • Standing up and drinking water makes the body out of sync with nature and triggers the nervous system, making it feel it is facing danger. The nutrients really go waste this way and your body is bound to face stress or any tension
  • When you stand and drink water, it travels through the system really fast and you risk your lungs and heart functions. The oxygen levels also get disturbed this way.
  • Drinking a glass of water while sitting down, – ensures that the nutrients reach the brain and boost its activity
  • Drinking a glass of water while sitting down aids better digestion and ensures that you don’t feel bloated after having water
  • Drinking water while sitting passes through the regular designed track and ensures all the benefits are achieved in the organs: toxins go away, impurities are flushed out and your health improves overall!

The reasons WHY by Healthline (5):

  • General rule is that the kidneys can only excrete about 1 liter an hour. So the speed at which someone drinks water can also change the body’s tolerance for excess water. If you drink too much too fast, or your kidneys don’t work properly, you may reach a state of overhydration sooner

It is impossible” syndrome

Some continual phrases and comments-in-mind which block the perception of the well-being:

It does not matter for me, I drink water while standing all the time – nothing happened

The speed doesn’t matter – it will all end up in a bloodstream in about the same time

Perilous games. Photo by Dr. A. Palatronis on www.z-antenna.com

I have no time for this yogi games. Those who write about drinking water slowly have never faced with the rushy reality

Have you recognized your statements?:)

Well being is right here, but very often we deny to accept it
