Are you stressed? Burnt out? Lost? Tired? Confused? Stuck in a rut? Depressed?
Have you felt that the traditional prescriptions and means to alleviate your suffering do not deliver the desired effects or long-term healing? If so, why not try to take action, visit the depths of your being and start putting the pieces back together yourself? True peace of mind, fulfillment and happiness can only come from within, not from another person or some external stimuli. With our step-by-step program, you can target mind, body and soul and activate the healing process. Vedic Astrology provides an overview of why you are where you are and what’s next.
Target supplementation rebuilds your exhausted bodily systems and provides desperately needed energy. Specific Yoga and meditation practices can systematically unravel the clutter circulating in the mind, reduce stress levels, stimulate clear thinking and instill relaxation.
With this three-step program you don’t have to wait, you can start putting yourself back together today! Don’t outsource your healing, take action yourself as you are the only one able to heal yourself from within.
If you want deep, inner healing and not mask the symptoms with substances or short term fixes, you need to get in the driver’s seat.
Putting yourself back together needs to happen at every level – mind, body, soul. The body needs to heal, the mind needs to clear, the soul needs to recover. By feeding proper nutrients and taking care of the physical, you then enable yourself to dive deeper into self-healing with yoga and meditation.
By learning how to control and still the mind, we can reduce incessant chatter, racing thoughts and prevent sleepless nights. The mind consists of thoughts. The thoughts is what you think makes you. You identify with your thoughts, with your perception of the world. If you are able to reduce the thoughts that race through you mind, you attain more peace. According to yoga, what keeps the mind from freedom is impurities of the mind (Mala), the restless nature of the mind (Vikshepa) the veiling power of the mind (Avarna). Avarna builds on Vikshepa which feeds on Mala. It’s a cycle that can be broken with yoga, meditation and horsemanship, for example. The process of slowing down and being more mindful slowly helps to discover who you truly are as you bust through the cobweb of your mind.
If we go down memory lane and look at our parents or grandparents, their lives were very different, much simpler. They lived more holistically, ate healthier food, lived in tune with nature and had more time for each other and life. Of course, we get older these days, because we have “better drugs”, but getting older is only worth it if it’s fun. Our predecessors did not run around like frantic rats, divorced on the fly, commuted for hours to get to a desk to sit in front of a buzzing screen all day. Often they grew their own food, enjoyed a “real life Facebook” with family, friends and neighbors. Burnout was no topic a few decades ago. Sure people got exhausted from working too much, but that was real work, physical work, perhaps, outside in nature. They did not have a gazillion devices demanding their attention. They did not have to sit behind computer screens 24/7 to make a living. We are the first generation that works in cage-like corporate buildings to pay for the butter on our bread. Humans were supposed to turn into this corporate rat within a few decades. Evolution is not that fast. This is why we’re reacting to it aversely and our batteries simply burn out.
While we cannot change immediately what we created and get out to the farm again, we can certainly do things to change our well-being. A life of “doing” will not bring happiness, instead a life of “being” might. In other parts of the world, such as India, Sri Lanka, for example, many people still live a holistic life that includes meditation, yoga, natural food, a life in a community with real friends in a community. All is blended with a Dharmic religion (Hinduism, Buddhism) that brings people together. The goal can be enlightenment, the ultimate achievement of human kind. This road is not being explored “officially” in the West. Christianity has no interest in enlightenment. Jesus was the savior and only “officially” enlightened being in the religion. Spiritual experiences of members of the church are a rare byproduct, but not a goal. In India, to this day, we have sadhus, rishis, enlightened masters who have reached this objective. They learned what humans are truly capable of and became one with God. God, the omnipresent energy, the master of the universe. Cosmic energy runs through their veins and if not desired, they might not have another rebirth. Humans, who do not explore the spiritual realm, learn about karmic debt, meditation and progress as a child of God, might need to repeat the reincarnation exercise for millenniums to come. I understand not everyone believes in reincarnation, so, if this is not your cup of tea, just look at it as becoming a better person for the sake of peace, harmony and fulfillment in this life.
In the Western society, however, we are turning away from our true human capacity and powers. Instead, we focus on developing google glasses, robots, smart weapons and the like. For what purpose? If activated and filled with cosmic energy we are much more powerful than any of latest sci-fi warfare. But, enlightenment and meditation are shunned in the West. It is avoided by the mass media. Spiritual people are smiled at and treated like morons, wearing strange shoes. However, who is to say that spiritual folks have to “look” like tree huggers? I, for one, work in a corporation, wear a suit on a daily basis but practice meditation and yoga religiously. In fact, I do not know how else I could stomach the corporate world. If they took spirituality away from me, I’d starve or go crazy. And this is precisely the mission here. How can you prevent or survive burnout spiritually and physically?
