In Taoist Tonic Herbalism, Shen is a prominent energy associated with spirituality. It is one of the Three Threasures. The others are Qi (energy) and Jing (deep energy reserve associated with adrenal and kidney power). When we have a lot of Shen, we can sense a feeling of upliftment even when dealing with stressful situations. It allows us to have greater insight over it, rather than being caught up in our thoughts and negative emotions. One of the most notable Shen Tonics, which increases this energy, is Reishi Mushroom. It has been used for spiritual purposes as well as immunity and other physical benefits for centuries. This is something which increases overall health over time as well as feelings of well-being.
When you take Reishi, you are taking something that increases your ability to rise above feelings of worry and other emotions that often pull us down and keep us feeling less than vibrant. This allows us to naturally increase our ability to be present or "in the moment". Your extra energy can be channeled into whatever you are doing in the moment so that you can fully experience it and feel a sense of deep appreciation and aliveness.
In essence, Reishi is a wonderful tonic for many people and increases our natural ability to allow and release.
Yoga is also something which increases feelings of aliveness and contentment in many people. By practicing it, in whichever way you feel comfortable, you can start to obtain these benefits. The result is a calmer outlook and a greater ability to be "in the moment". This can lead to a sense of energy within you that you can direct your focus toward and be in a state of meditation without the intense will needed to "block out" thoughts. When we practice yoga or anything similar, we can be in a state of natural meditation and connection to life with little effort beyond the physical act of yoga. Eventually, this ability can grow and meditation can become second nature.
Tai Chi and Qi Gong also can help this process, much like Yoga.
When you combine taking Reishi everyday with practicing Yoga, you have a very powerful process for increasing your sense of spirit.
