The Five Tibetans Rites


Today’s video will show you a powerful way to activate your life energy, vitalize your hormonal glands, align the chakras and, it is even said, to rejuvenate you! 

A little background to the video:

I had a dear friend visiting me in 1991 and he introduced me to the Five Tibetan rites – also referred to as The Fountain of Youth. He said he was doing this 10-minute rejuvenating and energy balancing practice since many years and invited me to do it with him. 

Even though I could feel this really could be a great way to start my day, as he was doing it, it still took me a long time before I actually made this a daily practice in my own life. I had this thing of starting something off, being really enthusiastic and then dropping it after not a very long time. Then eventually starting again, to drop it again…maybe some of you recognize this 😉 This was again another variation of not valuing myself enough, as I wrote about yesterday. 

Someone has said that it takes 30 days of repetition for the subconscious mind to register a new habit and up to a year, before it is really a permanent habit.

In the video I show you the Five Tibetan Rites, as they were shown to me and I also have added some more yoga moves that I like to do in addition:

I also really recommend you to read the book written by Peter Kelder called The Ancient Secret of the Fountain of Youth, which starts with the story of his own introduction to the rites by way of Colonel Bradford, a mysterious retired British army officer who learned of the rites while journeying high up in the Himalayas, after India regained its independence from Great Britain in 1947.

There are many links on the internet, when you google the Five Tibetan Rites, here is a little text I found:

The fountain of youth might be found in the ancient Tibetan five rites. The Tibetan five rites are a set of exercises with endless anti-aging and stress-reducing benefits.

Each of the five rites is made up of a set of movements that are repeated 21 times. When practiced daily, the five rites are said to enhance mental clarity and memory, balance hormones, improve health and support emotional well-being. The rites stimulate the chakras (the seven energy centers of the body) and increase a flow of energy from the core outward.

Tips

  • Practice basic diaphragmatic breathing before beginning the exercises.
  • It is important to connect the breath with the flow of the exercises.
  • Start with three repetitions of each movement and progressively increase to 21 repetitions.
