Raj Time and Cycle Review and Forecast August 21, 2015

http://safehaven.com/article/38667/raj-time-and-cycle-review-and-forecast

In my last July 30 July post. I was looking for a 7/31 swing High.

Forecast #1: From 7/31 Raj T&C Daily Report: we should rally into 7/31 geometric CIT Highs and then see another decline into Friday August 7 Lows+/-1 at the 8/6 Geometric CIT.

Actual: We rallied into a 7/31 High and declined 46.33 SP’s into Friday 8/7 Low 
(Forecast #1 on hourly chart, click on chart below to enlarge).

Forecast #2: From the 8/5 Raj T&C Daily Report: “We should decline into August 7 Lows and then rally into 8/10-13 quadruple CIT”

Actual: We made an 8/7 Low and saw a brief sharp 37.44 SP rally to an 8/10 High (Forecast #2).


Forecast #3: From the 8/11 Raj T&C Daily Report: We were expecting a 8/10-13 High and saw an 8/10 High. We should now see an 8/13 Geo CIT Low (#3)"

Actual: From the 8/10 High, we declined 53.26 SP’s into 8/12 Low (Forecast #3 on chart), 1 TD from the 8/13 Geometric CIT.

Forecast #4 +5: From the 8/11 Raj T&C Daily Report: "From this 8/13 CIT Low, we rally into OE week into 8/19H (#4) and see another decline into 8/21 Lows (#5) at the next 10 TD Low due 8/21L and the next 19-20 TD Moon debilitated Scorpio Moon Cycle 8/21-24 Lows.

Forecast #4 +5: From last weekend on Sunday 8/16 Update: "I was doing some research last night. Some analogies suggests we could top out as early as 8/17 and the majority as late as 8/19 and start a relatively sharp decline into 8/21-24 Low...The decline after 8/18H+/-1 should be sharp, so be alert.""

Actual: From the 8/12 cycle Low, we rallied 51.38 SP’s into 8/18 High (Forecast #4) at the 8/18 Solar CIT and projected 8/17-19 High and saw a sharp 67.74 SP’s decline into 8/20 Lows so far (Forecast #5).

What's next: We are approaching some major long term 1X1 support at 2025-30 SPX area, so a bounce/rally would be only natural here. We should see an 8/21 Low at the 8/21 double Geometric CIT, see another brief rally, before we retest the recent Lows at the next major Time and Cycle cluster CIT swing Low.

Raj Time and Cycle Review and Forecast July 30, 2015

http://safehaven.com/article/38447/raj-time-and-cycle-review-and-forecast

In my last public post, I was looking for a 7/16-17 CIT High, that was later updated to Monday 7/20 geometric CIT.

From 7/18 Raj T&C weekend Report:We could see a spillover rally to higher Highs on Monday 7/20 Geometric CIT that could be the High, if not Friday. From the 7/20 High (1 on chart), we will see a decline into 7/27 (2) Geometric and Solar CIT, which is also the 19-20 TD debilitated Scorpio Moon cycle of Lows. From there we rally into 7/31 geometric CIT Highs. (3)


Actual: We made a 7/20 High, declined 69.30 SP’s into 7/27 Low and rallied 47+SP’s into 7/30 High so far. Those were 3 Bull’s eye Hits.



What’s next: We make a 7/31 High at the 7/31 Geometric Time CIT and start another decline into XXX August Time and Cycle Cluster Lows and rally once again.

Thursday, July 16, 2015

7/16 is the next major Time and Cycle Cluster CIT swing High


From my 6/30 Daily Email: "We are Lower into 6/30 T&C cluster Low,  at the 6/29 and 7/1 Geometric CIT and at the 13 and 19 TD cycle Lows. From here we rally into a 7/6 High at the 7/5 weekend Solar CIT"

Actual: We made a 6/30 Low and rallied into 7/2 High, 1 Trading day before the 7/5 High and we then declined into 7/7 marginally Lower Lows.




7/16 is the next major Time and Cycle Cluster CIT  

Time CIT:
17/16 Solar +/-1
2. 7/15 Geometric CIT



3. Time Squares from 7/08/09 major Low
a.  +1512 CD = 08/28/13L+0. 1512 CD = 38.88^2 + 2 = 40.89^2 = 1672 CD
b.  +1672 CD = 02/04/14L+1. 1672 CD = 40.89^2 + 2 = 42.89^2 = 1840 CD
c. + 1840 CD = 07/22/14H+2. 1840 CD = 42.89^2 + 2 = 44.89^2 = 2015 CD
d. + 2015 CD = 01/13/15L+2. 2015 CD = 44.89^2 + 2 = 46.89^2 = 2199 CD
e. + 2199 CD = 07/16/15H+/-2

Cycle CIT
1. 7/16: The 7 yr cycle is the 1800 TD Cycle: 05/19/08H + 1801 TD
7/16/15H+/-
2. 66 wk Cycle or 460 CD cycle: 07/01/10L-460-10/04/11L-454-12/31/12L-466-= 4/11/14L-4617/16/15H+/-
3. Peter Eliades 784/112wk Cycle: 
(784 CD X 4 = 3136 =close to 3141 Armstrong Cycle)
start from 9/3/29, recent examples:
a. 38 X 784 = 4/03/11L
b. 39 X 784= 5/22/13H
c. 40 X 784 = 7/14/15H major +/-  
4. Bradley 7/16
5. 4/16 SP Cycle is due on 7/15.

What's Next: We have rallied strongly in Option expiration week into the 7/16 major Time and Cycle Cluster CIT, and close to the key 2130-35 SPX resistance, suggesting a swing High forming, before we start the next sharp decline. As all trends are Up, we need a clear reversal lower to confirm.

Update Friday 7/17:  I have a Monday 7/20 Geometric CIT that could be the High, if not today.
Around this Mid July window, the Solar CITs shifts a few days here and there, ie it could be on 7/18 weekend CIT, instead of 7/16.

6/30 is the next Time and Cycle Cluster CIT

http://safehaven.com/article/38113/630-is-the-next-time-and-cycle-cluster-cit

Forecast: In my last 6/12 public post, I was looking for a "Friday-Monday 6/12-15 hard retest of the 6/9 Low at 2072 SPX"

Actual: We declined into 6/15 Low at 2072.49 SPX, retesting the 6/9 Low at 2072.14 SPX.

The 6/30 Time & Cycle (T&C) Cluster CIT

Time:
  1. 6/29-30 Medium term Geometric CIT (most important)
  2. 6/29 and 7/1 short term Geometric CITs (most important)
  3. 4/16 Symmetry Point Cycle due 6/29.
  4. Venus 120 Uranus 06/28.
  5. Venus 0 Jupiter 6/30.
  6. Mars Square Rahu 7/1.
  7. Bradley 7/1.

Cycles:
  1. The 19 TD (Trading Day) Cycle of Lows due 6/29-30L
  2. The 13 TD Cycle of Lows due 7/1L
  3. 8 Month Cycle of Lows: June 30 2015 Lows
  4. The 350 TD Cycle due 6/29+/-


The 350 TD Cycle: 5/12/04L-699- 2/22/07H-351-07/15/08L-704-5/2/11H-347-9/14/12H-348-2/05/14L-351-6/29+/-.

Forecast from the 6/12 Raj T&C Daily Email: The bias remains we are down in to 6/12-15 Time and Cycle Cluster Low, retesting the 6/9L at 2072 SPX (#1 on chart), then  up to 6/23 High and the 6/23 Solar CIT (#2) and then see another decline into 6/30 CIT Lows (#3)”


Actual: We made a 6/15 Low, rallied into 6/22 High at the 6/23 Solar CIT and declined into 6/29 Low so far.

Conclusion: We should make a 6/30 T&C Cluster CIT Low+/-1 day and rally into my next proprietary Solar CIT.

6/12 is the next Time & Cycle Cluster CIT

http://safehaven.com/article/37952/612-is-the-next-time-and-cycle-cluster-cit

From my last public post, the 6/8 geometric CIT (Change in Trend) was the 6/9 Low at 2072.14 SPX, right at the 14 week large sideways channel support.

From the 5/31 Weekend Email: Based on 3 important cycles we see a sharp decline into the next major T&C Cluster due 6/12.

The 13 TD cycle of Lows and the 14 week large sideways channel.

I had 6/12 marked since the beginning of the year, when I calculated the various Time and cycles for the entire year and 6/12 showed up as a very long term Geometric CIT covering decades, 6/12 was also an important Time Square from 9/3/1929 and there are other Time squares shown below.

6/12 Time & Cycle Cluster CIT (High or Low)

  1. 6/12 Solar CIT (most important)
  2. 6/12 long term Geometric CIT, covering decades (most important)
  3. 7/18/06L + 57 Squared = 6/10 (important)
  4. 9/3/29H + 177 Squared CD = 6/13 (important)*
  5. Mars Passover Venus sine wave 6/11 (important)
  6. Venus Saturn sinewave 6/14
  7. Major Bradley 6/10 +/-3
  8. Mercury Direct 6/11 (Semi important)
  9. Neptune Retrograde 6/11
  10. Symmetrical Triangle Apex 6/11
  11. Vedic Mars enters Gemini 6/13
  12. 3/23H + 55TD = 6/10
  13. 5/22/13H+750 = 6/11, 9/14/12H+1000= 6/11,  5/2/11H+1500 = 6/10, 8/11/08H+2500 = 6/16, 12/2/94L + 7500 = 6/15
The History and effect of 9/3/29 continues to date, credit goes to James Brock for first discovering these squares

1. 55 Squared weeks = 08/25/87H
2. 60 Squared weeks = 09/01/98L
3. 65 Squared weeks =08/24/10L

Squares from 9/3/1929H +
173 Squared CD =29,929 = 8/13/11=> 8/9/11 Low
174 squared CD =30,276= 7/24/12 Low
177 squared CD =6/13/15 nex!

Cycles:
  1. The 911 TD Cycle: 3/17/08L -912-10/27/11H-911-6/15L
  2. 13 TD Cycle of Lows due 6/12L
  3. 8 Month Cycle: June 2015 Lows

Conclusion: 6/9 was a geometric CIT Low, right at the 14 week sideways channel support and Friday-Monday 6/12-15 should be a hard retest of the 6/9 Low at 2072 SPX and then we rally strongly afterwards into my next proprietary CIT (turning point).

Raj Time and Cycle Review and Forecast June 3 2015

http://safehaven.com/article/37862/time-and-cycle-review-and-forecast-060315

Review: In my last public post, the 5/15 Geometric CIT (Change in Trend) was a miss, which happens at times as the geometric CITs are 70-80% accurate in pinpointing important Highs and Lows (The proprietary Solar CITs are 85-90% accurate).


Since 3/3, we have been in a large 13 week choppy sideways channel, with resistance at 2136-38 SPX and support at 2065-70 SPX. Whichever way it breaks, determines the next large 70 SP directional move (2205 or 1999 SPX). The markets have been in a volatile trading range, so it is best to have some useful Time and Cycle tools to guide us.

From the 5/19 Evening Email: From the 5/19 High (#1), we should see a decline into 5/22 Solar CIT Low+/-1 (#2). 
Actual: We made a 5/20 High (+1) and saw a decline into 5/26 Low, 1 trading day later than the 5/22 Solar CIT and have seen another choppy rally since.

From the 5/31 weekend Email: "The 6/1 Solar CIT was biased a 6/1 High. However, there are 3 arguments suggesting an early June Low (#3): 1. The increased volume Friday 5/29 suggests lower lows soon. 2. There is a regular 19 TD Cycle of Lows, which is the debilitated Scorpio Moon cycle suggesting 6/2-3 should be a Low. 3. The Squares of Lows from 10/11/07 suggests 6/4+/- Low+/-"


Actual: We declined into a 6/2 Low, 1 TD from the 6/1 Solar CIT and right into the debilitated (Vedic) Scorpio Moon cycle, associated with market lows, which is the current 19 TD Cycle of Lows shown in the chart.  

What’s next?: We should see another volatile rally into 6/5-8. The 4/16 Symmetry Cycle has Friday 6/5 CIT and Monday 6/8 is next Geometric CIT. The next 70 SP move comes when we break the current 13 week choppy sideways channel.

Raj Time and Cycle Review and Forecast May 12, 2015

http://safehaven.com/article/37622/raj-time-and-cycle-review-and-forecast-51215

From the 5/4 Daily Report:The 5/5 double Geometric, the 5/5 SP Cycle CIT and the 5/6 24 Sq wk Cycle CIT will be a 5/5-6 Low, most likely on 5/6L, which is the WBOE Low and we are higher into 5/11-12 Highs at the next 5/11-12 Solar & SP cycle CIT, from there we decline into 5/15 double Geometric CIT Low“

Actual: We declined into 5/6 Low and rallied into 5/11 High, right at the 5/11-12 Solar and SP CIT High and have since reversed sharply lower.


We remain in the large (red lines) choppy and volatile sideways triangle since the 2/25 High, more than 75+ days now. 

What’s next?: We should decline into 5/15 double geometric CIT Low+/- 1 day and then see another rally phase and then we start a relative sharper decline.



Intraday May 12 9.45 am:  Globex futures have been down all night, often (80%), though not always, we see the Low of day near the Open or in the 1st hour.

If this is a ” Low am to High pm” day, then we will see a last hour High of Day.

This will be my last public post for some time.

Another Time and Cycle Update

From the 5/3 weekend Report:  "We should decline into the 5/5 double Geometric, the 5/5 SP Cycle CIT and the 5/6 24 Squared week Cycle CIT  and see a 5/5-6 Low and we are higher into 5/12 Highs at the next 5/12 Solar & SP cycle CIT."

In the 5/4 public blog post: "Any decline into the 5/5-6 double Geometric CIT, confirms a 5/5-6 swing Low"

Actual: The 5/5-6 cluster CIT was the 5/6  Low and we have rallied today. 

What's next: We should rally to a 5/12 Solar CIT High.

Monday, May 4, 2015

5/4 Update on 4/30 T&C Forecast

4/30 T&C Forecast: "We are lower into the 5/1-5 cluster CIT Low"


Actual: The 5/1 Solar CIT was the 4/30 Low we were looking for.

Any rally into the 5/5-6 double Geometric CIT, confirms a 5/5-6 swing High.

Any decline into the 5/5-6 double Geometric CIT, confirms a 5/5-6 swing Low.

Raj Time and cycle Review and Forecast 4/30/15

http://safehaven.com/article/37488/raj-time-and-cycle-review-and-forecast-43015

From my 3/27 last public blog post”We should make a 3/27 Low +/-1 Trading Day at the 3/27 Geometric CIT and start a relative sharp rally”

Actual: The 3/27 Geo CIT was the 3/26 Low, which remains the Low to date.


Since that 3/26 Low, the markets have been in a choppy, sideways to up (Red) channel, without a clear directional trend, frustrating Bulls and Bears alike.

There is a 2/20/15 Symmetry (mirror Image) Cycle that has been in the markets:


  1. 02/02L =  03/11L
  2. 01/22H = 03/20H
  3. 01/14L = 04/01L
  4. 12/26H = 04/15H
  5. 12/16L = 04/27H
  6. 12/05H = 05/05H is next!

The proprietary Solar and Geometric Time CITs (Change in Trend, is High or Low) in the last 4 weeks (Cyan vertical lines on chart) continue to outperform, all +/-1 Day:

  1. 3/27 Geometric CIT was the 3/26 Low
  2. 4/01 Solar CIT was the 4/1 Low
  3. 4/06 Geometric CIT was the 4/6 Low
  4. 4/11 weekend Solar CIT and 4/13-15 triple Geometric CIT was the 4/13-15 High
  5. 4/21 Solar CIT was the 4/22 Low
  6. 4/24 Geometric CIT was Monday 4/27 High, 1 day later.
  7. 5/1 Solar CIT is the 4/30 Low so far

From the 4/25 Raj T&C weekend Email“We have rallied into Friday 4/24 Geometric and 4/24 SP Cycle CIT suggesting an 4/24-27 High  forming. We are overbought, suggesting a pullback is due soon, most likely into the 5/1 Solar CIT Low and 156 TD Cycle due 5/1.
Actual: We made a Monday 4/27 High in the 1st hour and right at pink channel resistance and reversed lower into Thursday 4/30 Low so far.

What’s next?The red channel break opens the door for lower prices, especially if we decline below the last 4/17 swing Low. We are lower into the 5/1-5 cluster CIT Low at the 5/1 Solar CIT and 156 TD Cycle due 5/1 and 2 TD later at the 5/5 double Geometric and 2/20 Symmetry Cycle CIT on 5/5.


Forecast: Intraday 5 min SPX CIT Times 4/30/15: 9.35, 11.25, 4.10 pm CIT Eastern

Actual: 9.40 High of day (HOD), 11.35 High, 4.05 High

Forecast: Intraday Cycle is the Cyan lines (9.40L), 10.30H, 12.30L, 1.30H, 3.30L

Actual: 9.40HOD, 10.25L, 11.35H, 12.55L, 1.35H, 3.15LOD


Thursday sees a High am to Low pm day, with a possible 9.40 Low at the 9.35 CIT, rally to a 10.30 High at the 11.25 CIT, decline to a 12.30 Low+/-30. rally to a 1.30 High+/-30, decline to a 3.30 Low at the 4.10 CIT

Result: The intraday cycle saw a High am to Low pm day, with a 9.40 1st hour HIgh of day and a last hour 3.15 Low of Day.

5/4 Noon UpdateThe 5/1 Solar CIT was the 4/30 Low, which was the 10 TD Hurst Low, being 9 TD from the 4/17 Low and if we rally into the 5/5 double Geometric CIT, it will be a swing High.

Raj Time and Cycles Review and Forecast 3/27/15


Forecast (1) from the 3/10 private & public blog Update: The decline continues into the next Solar CIT. We are lower into  the 3/12 Solar CIT and WBOE ( week before Option Expiration) Low, reverse and rally into OE (Option Expiration) week.

Actual: We made a 3/11-13 double Low at the 3/12 Solar CIT and rallied into Option Expiration week as expected.

Forecast (2) from the 3/20 Morning Update:
“A rally into the last hour High today suggests the 3/21 Solar CIT will become a 3/23
High and then start a decline into end of next week.”


3/20 was:
1. The next Solar CIT is on 3/21
2. The next 7 Year/1800 TD Cycle major CIT 
3. The start of the 9 Days of Mother Divine CIT
4. The 24 Square week Cycle High
5. The Spring Equinox CIT, the first day of Spring
6. A Super Perigee New Moon
7. A Solar Eclipse
8. Quarterly Option Expiration Day
9. 180 Degrees from 9/19/14 Quarterly Option Expiration Day

Actual: We made a 3/23 major High in the 1st hour and declined sharply afterwards.

Forecast (3) from the 3/22 Raj T&C Weekend Email:
“The cycle bias is 3/21 weekend Solar CIT is a 3/23H and we decline into 3/27-30L at the 38 wk & 911 TD Cycle on 3/26+/-, the 3/27 Geometric CIT and 3/28 Mother Divine weekend CIT and rally into XXX  Solar CIT.

Actual: From the 3/23 CIT High, we declined a whopping 69+ SP’s into 3/26 Low so far.


The patriotic 911 Trading Cycle (TD) cycle: 

5/12/04 Low-12/26/07 High -8/9/11 Low -3/26/15 Low


The proprietary Solar and Geometric Time CITs (Change in Trend, is High or Low) in the last 2 weeks (1-4 Cyan vertical lines on chart) continue to out perform:
  1. The 3/12 Solar CIT was the 3/11 major Low.
  2. The 3/16 &18 Geometric CITs were the short term 3/16 High and 3/18 Low.
  3. The 3/21 Solar CIT was the next 3/23 major swing High.
  4. The 3/27 Geometric CIT was the 3/26 Low so far
  5. The XXX Solar CIT will be the next High.

What’s next: We should make a 3/27 Low +/-1 Trading Day at the 3/27 Geometric CIT and start a relative sharp rally into the next proprietary Solar CIT. Be ready as the next decline after that won’t be pretty.


Other Markets: The Euro is Long term bearish.
The Euro continuous futures weekly chart closed slightly higher last week at 1.08.3, after making fresh 12 year Lows and solidly below major long term triangle support.



Similar to Crude Oil, mentioned on this blog back on Jan 14 and Jan 5, there was a large triangle hat had formed since 11/18 2005 Low. The 10 year triangle break in the 1st week of January 2015 projected a multi month decline to the 80-82 area in the coming months and years. A solid close below 99 support should lead to a retest of the 80-82 area. Euro is long term bearish. Vacation in Europe anyone?

OT: Your Health: 10 Secrets for Physical, mental & emotional Health & Well being

10 Secrets for Physical, mental & emotional Health & Well being according to Maharishi Ayurveda

1. Consistently go to bed before 10:00 p.m. Earlier is even better. Getting enough rest is essential for emotional health, and falling asleep during the Kapha time of night generates a deep, restful sleep that truly refreshes mind and body. This allows you to use the sleepy, heavier Kapha time of night to help you fall asleep faster.

2. Wake up with the rising sun. Waking up early is important to emotional health, because sleeping into Kapha time, which begins at 6:00 a.m., can cause a buildup of ama (toxins). This in turn affects the shrotas, or channels of communication, possibly clogging them, which can create dullness of mind and low moods.

3. Walk outdoors while breathing deeply. The ideal time to do this is when the sun is rising. Daily exercise is essential to combat low moods, because exercise helps move blocked emotions and hormones out of the body. It increases the power of agni (literally “digestive fire” which, in this sense, “cooks” emotions) and helps improve one’s ability to process emotions. Exercise also releases positive neurohormones, elevating your mood. The early morning sun adds an extra boost, because you become infused with the positive energy of the sun when it is most beneficial for all body types.

4. Daily elimination is very important. Occasional constipation can cause headache, dullness, fatigue and low moods. Use a Tongue Scraper to scrape your tongue in the morning.  If your elimination is sluggish or blocked, start your day with cooked apples, prunes and figs.  Drink water throughout the day. Eat at the same time each day, with the main meal at noon and a lighter meal in the evening.

5. Practice Transcendental Meditation (tm.org or tm.nl) for 15-20 minutes Morning and evening as that has been proven to improve overall Health and well being and cultivates Bliss.

 6.  Eat intelligent foods. Foods that are organic, natural and unprocessed contain more of nature’s intelligence. They are digested quickly by the body and create ojas. Ojas is the by-product of good digestion that creates bliss, stable emotions and good health in the body. Intelligent foods include: organic milk; cloves; walnuts; pears; coconut; proteins such as soaked seeds and nuts with raisins and dates; panir (fresh cheese); and buttermilk or lassi (rather than yogurt), as these lighter drinks do not increase Kapha and are better for lightening emotions. To make buttermilk, follow the simple recipe below*1. (Please note that Ayurvedic buttermilk is not the same as the buttermilk you buy in the store.) This recipe helps restore the beneficial bacteria in the intestinal tract, thus helping digestion and assimilation.  Avoid eating "unintelligent" or junk food if you want to uplift your spirits. Avoid leftovers as well as canned, frozen or packaged foods, as these are not fresh and tend not to enhance creation of ojas. Rather, they may promote the creation of ama, the sticky waste-product of incomplete digestion that blocks our microcirculatory channels (shrotas). Ama slows Sadhaka Agni (digestive fire) and blocks the communication between heart and mind, causing negative emotions to be stored in the body instead of being released. If the shrotas, or channels, are clear, negative emotions and stress can be processed more easily and released quickly. Another type of food to avoid is the nightshade family of vegetables, which includes potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, and green, yellow and red peppers. These vegetables are considered harder for the body to digest and can clog the shrotas.

7. Give yourself a daily abhyanga (Ayurvedic oil massage). Massage increases circulation, clears toxins from the tissues, invigorates the body, calms the mind and soothes the emotions. It is balancing to Vata dosha and, because of this, it calms anxious feelings and stress. For your massage, use our Sesame or Coconut Oil. Follow your massage with a warm bath to flush out the toxins that have been pushed out from the cells with the massage.

8. Do moderate exercise such as yoga asanas. Yoga enhances digestion and stimulates the Sadhaka Agni (digestive Fire), which cleanses toxins from the channels and cells of the body, improving overall balance and health. This is a time-tested tool for clearing away the toxins that lead to low moods.

9. Use Rasayanas, which are herbal elixirs for bliss and rejuvenation, and are the cream of the herbal kingdom, prepared according to ancient methods that can take weeks and even months to make. Maharishi Amrit Kalash is one of the most powerful of all the Rasayanas, and it has the ability to create bliss, contentment, and ideal health. Like any true Rasayana, Maharishi Amrit Kalash has the ability to enhance medhya, or the coordination between the mental functions of learning, retention and recall. This kind of coordination is important for balancing the emotions and helping to prevent feelings of sadness. It is also a great antioxidant, a quality associated with anti-aging.  

Practice Achara Rasayanas, or behavioral Rasayanas. According to Charaka Samhita, if you practice these positive behaviors on a daily basis, you will gain in overall health and well-being. You'll be interested to see many of the suggestions we have already discussed listed here.

10. Create a sweet, loving, stress free environment. It's very important to surround yourself with positive, loving people who support you emotionally, and who also support you in leading a sattvic life. Choose friends or co-workers who also are interested in following a healthy routine and eating healthy foods. You'll also want to choose the company of people who respect you and who create an uplifting feeling.

A description of suitable and unsuitable company is outlined in Charaka Samhita. Those who are considered suitable company are mature in wisdom, learning, conduct, patience, memory and the practice of meditation. Also recommended are those who are acquainted with human nature, devoid of anxieties, well-behaved with everyone, peaceful, and who advocate right conduct and follow a righteous course of action.

Those who are considered unsuitable as friends or associates are negative in thought, speech and conduct; quarrelsome by nature; and/or devoid of compassion. Also not recommended are people who habitually speak ill of others, cruel or greedy people, those who envy the prosperity of others, those who indulge in sarcastic remarks about others, and those who do not follow a virtuous course of life.
