What is Vital Energy?

Vital Energy

When you understand how your body makes energy then it becomes easier to see how you get fatigue. We tend to associate energy as something we need to move the things we can physically control like muscles and to help the brain with our thought processes.

Although this is true, a much larger percentage of your daily energy supply is used to run all the systems in the body that you have no control over like your heart, kidneys and digestive system for example. This is what your RMR, resting metabolic rate is. It is the amount of calories your body needs to run all it’s system before you can even attempt to do all the things you want to do like move and think.

For example an average woman uses approximately 1700 calories a day just in running the internal workings of her body. If your calories intake is around 2500 per day then approximately two thirds of your daily calorie intake is used to do the jobs you may not even know exist or have any control over. You can also see why your body hates to be put on a low calorie diet because it fears it will not have enough usable energy to go around. The priority energy supply must go to the body first and whatever is left over, you can use to consciously do things.

If your body is under constant or extreme stress, ill or injured the additional workload and the increase in wear and tear will mean your body will need more energy and resources to operate, leaving less available for your conscious purposes. As more energy is used internally your movement and thought processes will reduce in strength as energy levels fall, resulting in poor concentration and physical fatigue. It can also result in your body craving for stimulants and high calorie foods in a desperate attempt to boost flagging energy levels but the additional strain these generate means that your body has to work even harder, putting further stress on the body.

The brain is one of the highest internal energy users so any drop in energy will have a huge effect on your brain’s ability to function. Your brain is your control centre, it oversees every movement, response and function. Imagine how you feel when you are tired and run down. You find it hard to concentrate, your movements slow down, your emotions go all over the place, you make silly mistakes and you forget things altogether.

If low energy has this noticeable effect on your ability to function, just imagine what effect it is having on the internal workings of your body. Processes and responses will be affected in the same way. They will slow down through exhaustion, send out wrong information or won’t send any out at all, systems will be put on low tick over and any repair and maintenance programme will be put on hold while the body frantically diverts what resources it has to immediate priorities and life maintaining processes.

The body needs to supply essential operational systems first before your demands are even considered. If energy levels are constantly low then what is available is used to keep the systems of the body operational and this means there is very little remaining for you to use elsewhere. We do have the ability to store energy and this causes many of us great distress as it is in the form of fat cells.

Most of us have a good supply of stored energy and some of us have an excessive supply so why does our energy levels fluctuate or remain low when the body has the ability to store a constant and often excessive supply of potential energy?It is not because we do not have energy supplies available to us but more the fact that our body finds it hard to manufacture Chakrasthose supplies into usable energy because it does not have the right resources or processes available to it.

Symptons of an Energy Imbalance

Your body may be struggling to cope with energy production if you have energy slumps about an hour after eating.You need to eat between meals to restore your energy.You crave for high sugar or fatty foods.You regularly use caffeine, alcohol or nicotine as an energy restorer.

Your body may be poor at energy production if you have consistently low energy.Your weight has gone up as your energy levels have gone down.You always feel tired after eating a meal. Stimulants and stimulation makes you feel immediately exhausted.

Making the Right Mix

The two key components required to make energy are oxygen and glucose. So problems in energy production can come from shortages of either of these components, an imbalance between the two, or an inability to process them. You need molecules of both oxygen and glucose to make energy so if supplies or production of either are affected, then energy cannot be produced. Too much short, shallow breathing brought on by stimulation, stress or anxiety will give you an initial boost of energy but will reduce your oxygen intake over time, making your energy levels fall dramatically. In this situation, reduced oxygen intake is reducing energy production but if your body is stressed in will be demanding more energy. This means that energy levels are being reduced at a time when the body actually needs more. Low oxygen levels mean that you cannot utilise as much glucose to make energy so it is irrelevant how much you have stored or put in because your body can only process it with the help of oxygen. So you can see that extremes or constant stress on the body can create a shortage of supply, imbalance existing supplies and upset the process of energy production. This is why it is so important to give your body regular breaks because relaxation through deep breathing will restore oxygen levels, enabling your body to re boost energy.

Meditation , opening the door of the soul: PART 2

Meditation types:

 

La méditation (Danse Odissi, musée Guimet)

MINDFULNESS MEDITATION: The most well-known type of meditation, mindfulness meditation, is about being aware of the sounds and activities happening around you. It’s almost a flow-like type of meditation, because you literally just let your mind be flexible and flow from one thought to the next where you don’t really focus on one particular thing.

Spiritual Meditation

This type of meditation is for those who regularly participate in prayer, as it’s based on communicating with God. Just like the other styles, you must become calm and quiet and then begin to focus on a question or problem you might have. This style of meditation can feel not only relaxing, but after it you feel very rewarded yourself.

Focused Meditation

If the idea of clearing your mind of all thoughts stresses you out, focused meditation is great because you can focus on a sound, object, mantra,( are words that are chanted loudly during meditation), or thought. The key here is to just focus on one of these things and stay committed to that one thought or object. You may want to use some relaxation music to help you meditate. Despite the fact that during that meditation type you are using your mind, you’ll be amazed at how rejuvenated you feel afterwards.

Movement Meditation

Movement meditation can be extremely uplifting and relaxing at the same time. Sitting with your eyes closed, simply focus on your breath and try out different gentle, repetitive flowing movements. Rather than focus on a sound, object, or thought, just turn your attention to your movement.

Reflective Meditation Technique

The practice of reflective or analytical meditation is like disciplined thinking: choosing a theme, question, or topic of contemplation we focus our reflection, or analysis, upon it. When our attention wanders to other thoughts, we return to our chosen topic

Traditionally, reflective meditation is employed to gain insight into the meaning of life, death, interrelationships, and social conscience, or to come to a conclusive insight regarding some key idea in science, philosophy, or scripture. Following our analysis through, we arrive at a conclusion. This, in turn, gives rise to a strong sense of faith or conviction.

 Transcendental Meditation

This is the most debated and researched one among the meditation types. This meditation type helps in increasing intelligence and creativity. In this technique, you need not to master difficult breathing techniques or some special postures. You just need to concentrate by sitting in a relaxed posture or even on a chair. Eventually, with practice you will get what you need out of that meditation be it an answer to a question that is bothering you or a clearer vision regarding something or even just relaxing your busy mind.

Breath and Navel Meditation
It is the oldest one recorded in China as well as in India and one of the most famous among other meditation types. It involves control over breath through different breathing techniques. You need to sit in a relaxed posture and concentrate on your breath, nostrils, or even on your abdomen.

Vibrational Meditation

This meditation type involves repetition of a particular word or a sound that becomes the focal point of the meditation. The vibrations that are produced from the word or sound pass through your body. You have to do concentrate on nothing else, but to chant that word or produce the sound again and again. It is one of the most different among various meditation types. In yoga, the mantra “Om” is regularly used since it delivers a deep vibration that makes it easy for the mind to concentrate on that particular sound.

Benefits of Meditation:

While you may not feel flashes of insight when practicing meditation, its effects will become apparent to you later, when you may notice that you responded to a crisis with more calmness, or failed to get “triggered” in a situation that would normally disturb you.

The real miracle of meditation is a subtle transformation that happens not only in your mind and your emotions but also in your body. And, this transformation is a healing one. We say that “Even your cells are more joyful.”

Today I relax my mind and my body. I am safe.

I am centered, calm and balanced. I declare peace and harmony within me and around me.

The deep, intimate connection I am searching for is within me. I am all that I am looking for.

I am love. All is well.”, the great Louise Hay!

10 Tips on Healing – A Holistic Healers Approach

11th Dalai Lama http://www.simhas.org/files/11...

11th Dalai Lama http://www.simhas.org/files/11Dalai.JPG (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

“The pain you feel today, is the strength you feel tomorrow” – unknown 

Healing is a very personal process,  acknowledging that we are wholeheartedly in control of our own individual healing journey can be a frightening and difficult concept to grasp, especially if we have undergone something quite traumatic and sad. In time however, If we are able to do this, we are often in a better position to regain a little control and understanding of this deep process.   Healing starts from our thoughts, actions and how we honour our own needs during times of pain.

As a qualified healer and spa owner, I welcome people onto my treatment couch daily, many of whom are amidst their own personal turmoil and walking tenderly on their own healing journey.  Every time, without fail, I want to make things better for them. But one of the most important lesson I learned early on in my career, is that, as a healer you have to accept and honour the fact that you cannot control someone’s own healing process, you cannot heal them, they have to walk the healing path themselves. Each individual will heal when they are good and ready to, and when they have learned what ever it is they needed to through the whole experience they have faced. All you can do is support them during the time they are in your treatment room. Providing them with a safe and secure space to relax, breathe and maybe let go a little.

I like any other person, I have undergone periods of deep healing. I have been the victim of  domestic violence in a dark controlled relationship, lost loved ones to terminal illnesses and had moments in my life, where I have truly struggled to regain just some element of normality.  When I look back I realise I needed to experience such deep, uncontrollable pain, to enable me to empathise with others, in my new healing role. I believe a healer that has walked a deeply healing path themselves, is one that can share elements of wisdom that they have gained from their own healing process.

Do not force the healing process, healing takes time – Healing is a deeply personal experience, every person and every event is different. Do not rush your healing journey, it doesn’t matter if it takes weeks, months or years. Only you will know when you have truly healed, and only you can decide when this happens.   When we are consumed with fear and worry, we tend to run scenarios in our heads of how life is going to turn out. This actually just increases our fear and worry. Try and take each hour and day as it comes, live fully in the present moment, not the past or the future. When we successfully manage to get through that hour, and then that day, slowly little by little, we can start to release some of the pressure and control that we are unwillingly placing on ourselves. Healing takes time, honour that process wholeheartedly by taking baby steps every day.

Embrace the pain, do not fight it – to really work through something we need to feel it fully. Breaking down into a sobbing bundle of tears, is sometimes what we need to do to work through our feelings of sadness and grief. I remember when I lost a dear loved one three years ago, I literally walked around in a blur of sadness and tears for weeks afterwards. I honestly felt completely numb, like a part of me had actually died with that person. I couldn’t function properly at’ll, it was as if I was on auto pilot, and I didn’t care about anything in this world apart from this huge hole that was suddenly in my heart. People told me that in time it would get better, but I didn’t want to hear that, I didn’t think they could possibly know how I was feeling. Of course in time it did get better, but I needed to fully feel the pain I was experiencing for myself, I needed to allow every inch of my mind and body to wallow deep within it’s sadness, to finally enable me to work through it, slowly one day at a time.

Bathe in or diffuse essential oils in your home – as a holistic healer, I have had the pleasure of witnessing over the past 15 years, the incredible power that essential oils can play during someone’s healing process. Many scientific studies have now proven that essential oils can actually make both emotional and biological changes to the human body.  Essential oils can effect brain chemicals, which in turn can promote feelings of peace and relaxation.    I have actually recently devised a skincare range (which is launching later this year), that has been 100% inspired by my clients, people I have had the pleasure of supporting through their own healing process.  My favourite oils to use to enhance relaxation and promote feelings of calm are Vetiver, lavender, geranium, jasmine, orange, benzoin and bergamot. (Please always check you are able to use any of these oils topically prior to use).  You can purchase many pre blended bath oils too, I love Aromatherapy Associates range.

Quieten the mind to allow the body to start to heal – Meditation is a hugely powerful tool when it comes to supporting your own healing process. When our mind is a whirlwind of turmoil and sadness, we are constantly preventing our physical body from slipping into repair and renewal mode. Try and allow yourself just 10 mins of ‘quite time’ every morning and evening. Many studies have shown that meditation actually helps treat depression and anxiety, as well as boosting your immune system.

Get out amongst nature, particularly trees! – Nature cleanses our aura and helps to balance our own harmonic energy field . Taking ourselves outside amongst trees, grass, foliage and nature provides us with a sense of oneness and can instantly promote feelings of calm and healing.  I live right near Greenwich Park, and despite my busy schedule I always try to make sure I have periods of time in the park throughout my week. I personally find it refreshing, calming and it really does give me a sense of reconnection during times of uncertainty.

Affirmations and positive thought – Some of my clients have found the use of affirmations particularly helpful during times of stress.  When I first bought my spa, and we thought we were about to lose everything due to the economic turn-down, including the business and our home,I had a little sign that I put in my office that read “My income is constantly increasing”. Despite how bad it got (sleepless nights on a friends floor as I couldn’t afford the petrol costs to get me home), every time I read that sign it gave me a point of focus and hope.  It drew my sometimes negative mind, back to something positive and gave me a sense of direction.  I also found this scroll written by the Dalai Lama in a shop during the same period it my life (see picture below), it still hangs in my office to this day. A constant reminder that life can be a struggle, but we should never give up.   Occasionally turning our mind to a positive thought, even for just a moment, can help give us a little hope and clarity on our onward journey.

Tap into the healing power of music – This is something that purely works for me, so I wished to share it in case it works for someone else.  I find music deeply healing.  Sometimes, when I am overcome with grief, doubt or sadness I will listen to some classical, or deeply moving music. I become completely engulfed in everything about it, every note and every chord.  I am still, I am quiet and I just simply listen, allowing the thoughts to come and go in perfect synergy with the piece I am at one with.  It maybe that upbeat music works for you in this way, give it a go and see if you experience any emotional connection or benefit.

Go and book a massage – Massage is clinically proven to reduce the stress hormone cortisol, and increase the mood enhancing hormone serotonin, it also lowers blood pressure and induces a deep sense of relaxation. Many massage therapists are also natural healers, much like some nurses. In my experience, the aura’s of massage therapists are often various shades of blue and turquoise, a healing shade. If you have never had a massage before, ask around for a good, reputable therapist and go and get a treatment booked. Massage is a fantastic way to treat depression and anxiety, and many of my clients over the years have found it exceptionally beneficial to experience a treatment during times of stress.   When cortisol levels are lowered in our bodies, we are able to repair and renew more effectively.

Tap into the healing energy of crystals – As a holistic healer, I am open to the healing benefits of many things, yoga, therapies, food, meditation and also crystals, to name just a few.  It is my belief that everything is energy, and therefore crystals have their own harmonic frequency, just as we do. Many crystals vibrate with a healing energy. There are some fantastic online crystal stores out there, or you can go and visit a qualified crystal healer.  It’s believed when certain crystals are placed on various corresponding points of the body or Chakras, (the energy centres of the body), they in turn can promote a deep sense of healing and overall balance.  This is now a widely accepted therapy found in many high street and larger corporate spas around the world.

Be safe in the knowledge you grow from every negative experience – In my twenties I used to often take the ‘why me’ approach to the challenges of life. Further along my own spiritual journey, now in my late thirties, I no longer have that out look on life. Life is simply that, life. From the day we are born, we aren’t given any guarantees that we won’t ever experience pain, loss or unhappiness. In fact, lets be honest,  it is more of a guarantee that you will experience all of these things at some point on this earth. We all do, every single one of us.  Now instead, with every challenge or period of sadness sent my way, I have been taught by my own spiritual tutor, to go inward, to explore those feelings deeply and thoroughly, and live in the knowledge that in time, through the tears, frustration and unhappiness, I will gain a new wisdom and an inner strength, that maybe in time, will possibly help someone else along their own healing path.

What is health?

Icon from Nuvola icon theme for KDE 3.x.

 

The state of ‘health’ implies that all natural processes that support life are functioning at an optimal level in their intended alignment.

There are three general types of ‘health’ – physical health, mental health and spiritual health. We usually treat each one separately as though they are not related…for instance, we might see a psychologist for mental health, a doctor for our physical health and a healer for our spiritual health.

But is it really possible to separate physical health from mental health from spiritual health? Can we maintain our physical health in the absence of mental health?

At any given time, we each sit somewhere along the spectrum of physical, mental and spiritual health…

The Four Spectrums of Health

But don’t they all mean the same thing?

It is only when we view ourselves from a holistic perspective that we realise that health is really an overall state of being.

We are either in balance or out of balance, aligned or misaligned, integrated or disintegrated, and that’s what makes us feel well or unwell. Too simple to be true? Maybe not…

The body, mind and soul work as a system with each part contributing equally to whole person. When in flow, this system facilitates the natural flow of energy throughout the body, without blockages or resistance. When out of flow, this natural flow is interrupted as energy accumulates and stagnation of energy occurs.

The Definition – What is holistic healing?

First, we must answer the question, ‘what exactly is healing?’

English: Holistic health, body, mind, heart, soul

English: Holistic health, body, mind, heart, soul (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Healing is about bringing any imbalance into alignment with its natural state of functioning.

Every organ in our bodies has a natural or ‘healthy’ state of functioning as do our emotional, mental and spiritual states. When we are out of balance, we feel like something is out of place – whether it comes in the form of emotional or physical pain or discomfort – and we naturally want to return to our natural state of harmony, when everything ‘works’ as intended. This process of rebalancing is synonymous with healing.

Holistic healing bypasses the ‘band-aid fix’ approach of conventional medicine, looks beyond a person’s physical state and sees the holistic view of their state of being or functioning. It acknowledges that the root cause of a physical illness may in fact be non-physical.

Holistic healing works when we we approach life from all aspects of being – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual…

The Holistic Healing Approach

Therefore, a holistic approach is considered to be more effective because change occurs on all levels and as a result, positive changes are more likely to last long-term and improve a person’s overall quality of life.

When we heal holistically, we address imbalances on all levels, rather than one or two, and so it becomes a life-long process in achieving overall life balance. The ultimate goal of aligning the body, mind and soul promises a happier, healthier, more balanced state of being.

Meditation , opening the door of the soul..

PART 1

The science of meditation has been around and known for thousands of years.

Today at Sarvodaya's Early Morning meditation

Today at Sarvodaya’s Early Morning meditation (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

It is one of the most prominent alternative and/ or complementary types of therapy that helps the person heal and get his needed balance on all three levels (physical, emotional and spiritual).

Meditation is a practice in which an individual trains the mind or induces a mode of consciousness, either to realize some benefit or just for that aim in itself.

The term “meditation” can refer to the state itself, as well as to practices or techniques employed to cultivate the state of mind we wish to achieve.

Meditation often involves an internal effort to self-regulate the mind in some way. It may be done sitting, or in a more active way.

Mind science research has suggested that the key to most of the things we want in life, whether it’s abundance, career success, health, happiness or enlightenment, lies in a particular state of mind.

That state of mind if cannot be achieved spontaneously, we may need to consider natural ways to help us get into that; one of which is certainly the meditation.

Scientifically, there are certain brain waves that correspond to that state of mind – in which we are capable to get anything we desire in life; the scientists call this the Alpha and Theta brainwave frequencies.

What would happen if you could reduce the resistance in the human brain?

By training to function at brain frequency levels known as Alpha and Theta; levels of deep relaxation that most people experience while meditating or in light sleep. If  you  train your mind this way you will see a significant improve in your life on many levels, you can even use that with the kids which may help them improve their grades at school, some research  have  even found evidence of enhanced intuitive functioning for some people when they started using their brains at the previously mentioned frequencies.

Calmness is the ideal state in which we should receive all life’s experiences,” writes Paramahansa Yogananda (1893-1952), founder of the Self-Realization Fellowship, in the prominent book Inner Peace.

Meditation is the perfect antidote for the constant intrusion of technology in our lives. In fact, recent research has shown that meditating twice per day for about 20 minutes can actually reduce blockages in your blood vessels, significantly lowering the risk of sudden death by heart attack or stroke.

Effective Healing That’s Literally At Your Fingertips

From the American Academy of Reflexology:

Devotees of hand reflexology maintain that there’s a “map” of the human body on our hands. Every internal organ and every other part of the body – is matched by a corresponding “reflex point” on the fingers, palms, backs, as well as inner and outer edges of the hands.

Applying thumb and finger pressure to the reflex points stimulates nerve impulses that travel to the corresponding body area. These impulses produce a relaxation response. As muscles relax, blood vessels open, increasing circulation, which increase the amount of available oxygen and nutrients – key components of healing-that get to cells in that part of the body.

American physician William Fitzgerald, MD, introduced this therapy in his 1917 book Zone Therapy. The techniques soon expanded to include foot reflexology.

In the decades since, reflexology has been popularized by hundreds of books and used by thousands of “reflexologists.”

Over a hundred research studies supporting the benefits of reflexology have been conducted primarily in Europe, the Middle East, China and the USA.

Reflexology is different from massage therapy and acupressure in that it works with the concept of small reflex maps, that suggest a shape of the human body – found on the feet, hands and outer ears – with touch techniques specific to the field of reflexology.

Some practitioners do ear reflexology, based on a whole-body map similar to the one used in the French and Chinese healing system of ear acupuncture (auriculo-therapy).

For quick relief of everyday pain, muscle tension and other – physical discomfort, the hands remain a prime area to work on. You can unobtrusively do hand reflexology anytime, anywhere-sitting in a meeting…at the computer…in an airplane.

Generally if the problem is on the left side of the body, work on the left hand, right side, the right hand. Frequently it is wise to work on both hands.

Research scientists especially in France, but also in China and the USA suggest the mechanisms of how reflexology works is predominantly through the nervous system.

Caution: Don’t do hand reflexology when you have a hand injury. If you have any medical problem, see a medical doctor. Hand reflexology is not a substitute for medical care.

THE BASICS

Apply gentle pressure to the reflex points on your hand, using the thumb roll technique…

To reflex points on your left palm, place the fingers of your right hand on the back of you left hand.

Place the pad of your right thumb on your left palm.

Squeeze gently, pressing in with the thumb. Maintain that pressure.

As you press, bend the thumb so that the tip slowly rolls forward and downward.

Maintaining contact between the right thumb and left palm, straighten the thumb so that it inches forward perhaps one-eighth of an inch over the surface of the reflex area.

Repeat this thumb rolling movement, gradually working over the entire reflex area.

Use the same technique to work reflex points on the palm or fingers. To work reflex points on your right hand, of course, perform the thumb roll with your left hand.

Short fingernails are preferable. If your nails are long, use the sides and corners of your thumb rather than the tip.

Each of the following reflexology mini-sessions should be done for at least five minutes. Work a broad area around the specified reflex points, using the illustrated diagram as a general guideline.

Reflexology theory suggests that when something is not working right in the body, the corresponding reflex in the hand will feel irregular, such as harder, softer, “crunchier” than usual, or just plain tender, when thumb or finger pressure is applied to that part of the hand.

Beneficial results are frequently reported within a session or two. Generally, the longer there has been a problem, such as stress related neck discomforts, the more sessions needed to help the body produce desired relief.

Part of what determines how long results last is if the person re-aggravates the situation, such as repeated strain in the neck. Results can last a short time or permanently.

EYESTRAIN

The eye reflex points are at the base of the index, middle and ring fingers – what is sometimes called the “big knuckles” of the hands, or the metatarsal phalangeal joints. Thumb-roll directly on the knuckle at the base of each-as well as immediately above and bellow the knuckle-on both sides of both hands.

SORE SHOULDERS

The shoulder reflex points are on the backs of the hands, mainly in the grooves between the long bones. To reflex them, use the tips of your fingers. If your left shoulder is the problem, reflex on your left hand. Put your right thumb flat on your left palm. On the back of your left hand, place the tips of your index, middle and ring fingers in the grooves. Gently apply and maintain even pressure in those grooves, slowly moving your finger tips in the direction of the wrist.

If your right shoulder is the problem, reflex points on you right hand.

STOMACH UPSET

The soft portion of the palm on both hands-below the big knuckles-contains many reflex points for the digestive system.

The stomach reflex points are mostly on the left palm. For stomach upset and heartburn, use the thumb roll to work the soft palm just underneath the large knuckles at the base of the index, middle and ring fingers. Work lightly, gradually as the tissue softens, working deeper, increasing the pressure a little at a time, using nurturing, pleasing pressure.

SORE NECK

Hand reflexology can relieve the neck pain associated with sitting in one place a long time.

The main reflex points for the neck are on the lower half of the thumbs. Thumb roll the area between the two knuckles of each thumb, rolling from the pad to the tip of your thumb, so that you apply sufficient pressure all the way around this area of the thumb.

CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME

This painful, sometimes immobilizing hand and wrist condition often results from compression of nerves along the forearm. Working on points for the forearm can reduce the pain. These reflex points are on the outer edge of the hands, midway between the base of the pinkie and wrist.

Thumb roll this hand area completely on whichever arm has the problem.

Caution: Although reflexology can help ease pain for carpal tunnel syndrome, the condition is serious and could require medical attention. If you have symptoms, see a doctor without delay.

BACK PAIN

Reflex points for the spine are on the inner edge of the hand, from the bottom of the thumb to the wrist. Use the thumb roll to reflex this area on both hands. Reflex points for the lower back are on the inner edge of the hand toward the wrist.

After any reflexology session it is frequently suggested to drink extra water, to help flush out any toxins that might have been released from the tissues into the blood.

Evil and good

When I think about evil and good , lots of things come through my mind since the start of humanity.

You meet lots of people that make good things and others that just do the opposite. When I think of evil I personally look at it from the angle of ignorance. The ignorance to see things the way they really are and lack of understanding of how you can make simple good things to make your life and others’ better and filled with positivity.

Evil causes negative things such as sufferings, selfishness and as previously mentioned lack of self awareness.

Part of being evil is also not knowing  who you really are and the true nature of reality. If you knew, then there would be no need to act evil and harmful. There would be no need for evil in the first place.

A further part of evil is related to fear and its consequences which I have previously shared when fear was discussed in more depth.

The fear of losing control and eventually the ultimate fear of death is behind many evil actions.

Despite that we all know that evil exists and is part of our life we don’t always know what and how we deal with it.

Enlightment is certainly a way that can help us control and limit the negative consequences of evil.

It is the infinite light of awareness that makes everything and all experiences possible. Hence if you choose not to be aware then you will suffer, on the other hand, if you choose to be expended then you will be happy and enjoy goodness and if you are boundless you will be free.

Self awareness is key. It helps you see how you perceive life, how you perceive your relationships, it makes you even more aware of your breath, your ideas, your thoughts and your life purpose. Self awareness is also key for relationships as without it you may be part of a self destructive relationship that is causing you harm and evil.

The choice to be enlighted and see life as it really is, is a simple choice. It spares us lots of negativity, evil and harm for ourselves and others.

The light that everyone has inside him/her is the natural force that helps us stand on our feet again when life gets difficult. This light is the driving force that makes us see the good in ourselves and in others.

Seek that light and let it grow , it will light your path and your heart. An enlighted  heart and soul cannot do evil and will never miss the path of goodness and eventually will never miss the path to God.

“God did not create evil. Just as darkness is the absence of light, evil is the absence of God.”
Albert Einstein
