This week I am wearing a turban. The whole week. Maybe even longer than a week. Will see. As an experiment. Not only when I teach. No. I wear it 24/7. Since the moment I wake up till I go to sleep. I wear it like you wear your underwear. I hope at least. I made it mandatory!
Since I came back from my travel (and that’s every time when I come back from travels) I find myself in a denial mode. I don’t want to be at the same place all the time. Routine drives me crazy. Everyday tasks are unbearable. Thinking about what to eat. Groceries. Washing the clothes. Cleaning. Doing my work. Contacting my clients. Creating. Writing. Preparing my class. Everything. It feels like an enormous burden I can’t deal with. But to be honest, it’s not so much. It’s only that it feels like it’s too much. My head feels overloaded. Even little things like buying a present for a dear friend makes me feel almost paralyzed. Everything feels like it’s too much.
That normally takes a week or two till I come back to where I left. My schedule is more organized. I feel more sorted. I can think clearly. Routine, even if I think I hate it, is good for me. I finally can function. But unfortunately I loose almost 2 weeks while trying to find my routine back. Which is a bummer.
I remember that our teacher during the teacher training told us that if your radiant body is weak everything feels like a burden and you are not able to focus. Your mind keeps on wandering. So I decided to give it a try. To keep my radiant body intact I started a meditation and felt like covering my head while doing it. It is said that covering the head creates a focus of the functional circuit of the hemispheres of the brain. It tunes the neurological system and also makes your meditation more effective. Oooh and that meditation. It felt so good. So I decided to keep that beautiful energy inside. And to keep my turban on.
And do I feel the difference already? Well, I started on Monday. Today is Thursday. The first two days I was even less focused than normally. Which drove me crazy. Impatient as I am I was a little bit disappointed that my headwrap didn’t work immediately. Yesterday was ok. But today. Today I managed to do so many things. One after another. Without hesitating. Without loosing my focus. Maybe it’s just a good day. Maybe. But I slept only 5 hours last night. But I go on and on… Is it the meditation? Or is it the turban? I don’t know yet.
As a side effect of wearing a turban, which I really like, is my posture. It is said that the turban helps you keeping your head in place and elongating your neck. And I definitely feel that! To be honest since the last few days I feel more elegant and more graceful. Most of the time I’m none of these. I wear my baggy jeans and sneakers. And my huge parka cause I like it warm and cozy. But with the turban on I feel more feminine and radiant. Really. And I get a lot of compliments too.
The biggest effect of the turban I feel after teaching a yoga class. The first few weeks I wouldn’t wear a turban in my classes or cover my head in any way cause I thought I wouldn’t need it. But I came home exhausted after every class. And then I gave it a try. It made such a big difference for me energy-wise. It’s incredible! Turbans in particular are useful for holding energy in and I thing this is the difference that I feel after teaching a class with or without a headwrap. As a teacher you have to be able to keep the space for all your students and that can literally suck the energy out of your body. With the turban on, the energy stays in. (If there are some turban experts reading this, please correct me on this if I’m wrong.)
It is said that your hair acts as antennae for the aura. It also maintains the body’s electromagnetic field. Thus also here I see the headwrap as a shield for your aura and your electromagnetic field.
Turbans also give you a cranial self-adjustment. Some people pay for that. I would say – wear a turban and you’ll get it for free!
Last but not least I’m enjoying my little experiment so far. Not only because I want to experience if this would work for me but also because a turban is a very beautiful fashion item. Just look at these ladies and prove me wrong!
I will see how long I will get along with it. But if I notice even more exciting changes I will report about it in my next post.
