Sacred physical exercises benefit health, amend well-being and produce a positive effect on one’s spiritual development. They combine physical movements with inner spiritual practice.
Energy storage and energy transmutation is an essential component of spiritual work and certain sacred positions (asanas) enhance a harmonious energy flow, free from blockages and diversions.
This effect can be amplified if a physical motion is combined correctly with a breathwork (pranayamas) or mantras (Samael Aun Weor’s runic exercises). Another way to increase the effectiveness is exposure to beneficial nature elements and practising during specific times of a day (e.g. sunrise)
Sacred physical exercises have an intrinsic esoteric meaning, which may become clear with their practice, e.g. Sufi whirling. What do we have within ourselves which is truly permanent – which doesn’t move?
