Better Health: Cold ShowersBetter Health: Cold Showers

Invisible energy is moving around us in the air all the time and we are constantly being affected by it. As you move throughout your day, meeting people, or visiting places, you will be unconsciously collecting and exchanging energy. The atoms within you are magnetic, giving you an energy field which draws positive particles to it and rejects negative particles, so by the end of the day, you will have collected energy, which has nothing to do with you. One of the quickest ways to deal with this energy is to take a cold shower, as cold water is also magnetic and it draws towards it the positively charged particles that you have collected. Putting the body under cold water can release this collected energy, which otherwise over time could become detrimental to your health.

Scientists have now proven the benefits of taking a cold shower twice a day, once in the morning to clear all the energy from sleep, and also in the evening, to clear all the energy built up from the day. The cold shower is better taken before you switch to a warm shower. This is because warm water is also magnetic and it pushes energy further into the cells, so it is more beneficial to clear energy with cold water first, which also brings vitality into the cells, and use warm water afterwards. You only need a ten-second blast of cold all over all the body, including the head, although you can use a shower cap if you have long hair.

A cold shower can have the following positive effects:

1. Brings blood to the capillaries, therefore increasing circulation throughout the body.
2. Cleans the circulatory system.
3. Reduces blood pressure on internal organs.
4. Provides flushing for the organs and provides a new supply of blood.
5. Strengthens the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems.
6. Contracts the muscles to eliminate toxins and poisonous wastes.
7. Strengthens the mucous membranes, which helps resist hay fever, allergies, colds, coughs.

Imagine shovelling dung in a zoo all day, and by the end of the day you are completely covered from head to foot with zoo filth. Upon arriving home, you tread the filth through your house, and as you kiss your family hello, you deposit filth onto them. Sitting on your sofa, you cover it with filth, as you eat your dinner, the filth is your guest, until finally you fall into bed and sleep with the filth. If you knew a cold shower would cleanse you of the filth, would you do it? Many people cringe at the idea of having a cold shower and present many excuses not to do it:

1. It is too cold
2. I can’t be bothered
3. I don’t need a cold shower because I visualise myself on fire to cleanse away the energy
4. I’ve tried it and I don’t like it
5. I’m too ill

The egoic mind is not going to want you to do something which will clear you energetically and make it easier for you to spiritualise nature. The egoic mind is going to tell you not to do it and it will throw various excuses in your way. We are not taught the benefits of a cold shower from childhood, because very few people know about it, and there is also a negative belief around it. The earlier you can teach your children the benefits, the more natural taking a cold shower will be for them. Often, children cannot wait to get in the sea, swim in a lake, or paddle in a river, yet they can detest taking a warm bath. They seem to have this instinctive knowing that cold water, which is open to the elements of chi from the sun and rain, is cleansing.
The best way to prove to yourself that cold showers aid you in clearing energy, is to take them twice a day for three weeks and then stop for a day, and you will notice the difference. It is not a psychological difference, but a feeling.
