Healing - What is it ?
As per our Founder Anand garg based on his own real life experience and continued journey to self healing.he describes healing as a journey to be thinking self to be knowing self to be empowering self to be writing self destiny & creating a life one wants.its in our own hands & nature has been kind enough to empower us on it if we are open.Healing is a progress and growth from
Emptiness to Wholeness.
Inner poverty to Inner wealth
Loneliness to Knowingness
Anger to Peace
Suppression to Acceptance
Jealously to Empathy
Selfishness to Compassion
fear to Courage
Intelligent life to Intuitive life
React to Respond
Survival to Creation
Emotional distress to Emotional Balance
Separation to Oneness
Patterns to Freedom
Programe to Mindfulness
On his journey he discovered that there is no short cut to healing. one cant heal by avoiding,supressing,repressing,distracting,resisting,indulging or numbing.all of this can help for a temporary basis on a short term but as soon as the effect of above goes the feeling going to come back with even double the force.the only way to heal is to feel by allowing.accepting.welcoming.hosting.observing & letting it be without getting involved with it.he says what gets felt comfortably is what gets healed.
He has designed a small template a little road map for someone to be on this journey to live life fully.most of the activities we do here in the village but you also can do the same at wherever you are & start your healing.follow all or some as per your need.
De clutter all areas of your life. Organize & priortise
Choose quality over quantity
Choose mindfulness over addiction
Minimize & organize your external environment.like home/people/places/social life/food/cloths etc
Choose what really matters. have adequately.have the best.have the luxury but remember less is a real luxury as it needs less time investment so more time for you & your healing.
Support local/buy/eat/shop/spent money and time locally as needed & as much as possible.
Follow 5 R principal Reduce/repair/reuse/Rot/Recycle
Minimise & organise the digital world. spent quality over quantity time
Out of his personal experience he says that time & energy are the life & the more things we have the more time and energy required to manage them.which means lesser life for inner world which is detrimental to our outer world.
Our Outer world is the mirror effect of our inner world.one can not have joyful outer world without having a joyful inner world.Minimilism is one of the tool to have more time to focus on it.
Wanting less is not only help in self healing it also helps in healing Mother Earth as it slows the demands thus slows the productions slowing the CO2 emission & over all garbage.
6 Key Areas
All of these 6 areas are very much interlinked & plays a very significant role in our over all well being. we must be aware and attentive to them on daily basis.The one of the main reason for our suffering is toxin of stress & it can seep through finding its way to our system by all of above or any of above misbalancing all of above.we must ensure that there is no new imbalances are seeping into your life & whatever imbalance we have are addressing them as much as you can.
Our environment is our outer world
Its the surrounding we live into our day to day life,We must take a time out and see if our surrounding is conducive to whats really matters to us in our life.if its supportive & if its not .what best we can do about it.how to maximize the benefit /minimize the harm.the peaceful environment can be good supporting step to inner healing.spending time & understanding to create a harmonize surrounding at home/office/nabourhood are must .
Our connection to people is our reflection
We are the social creature & foundation of our lives are built on caring and sharing.its paramount for us to have good people in our life to support/guide/help/provide/motivate/criticize/trigger & learn adding value to our journey of life.however we need to equally careful to people who are just doing opposite to that.we need to be mindfully cut down the toxic people out of our lives.remember the people who criticize & triggers us are not the toxin people but the people who sing us false praises and put us on pedestal.who cant see good in themselves and others & vibrating with lower vibrations.not necessary they are the bad people but at this point of time you may not have adequate energy to help them or have them in your life.so its best to give ourself what needed the first in order to give that to others later.
Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.' - Hippocrates
What we eat has a direct relationship with our gut & its no secret that gut has direct relationship with mind & has the abilities to impact over all well being .we must be very mindful towards what we eat & how we eat.mostly eating plant based food.more of fruits/veggies/nuts/millets/grains are considered to be good for our gut & digestive system but not necessary that all of them are true for everyone.we all have a different body & our food should be conducive to our inner environment so eat & feel.body ll guide you.but by and large our diet should contain more of alkalizing sattavic food by nature avoiding all the tamasic & toxic food.
Our body is our temple
Our bodies are our temple & should be treated with that love,respect & care,Its a home & a vehicle for this life.like any home and vehicle it also must be serviced/cleaned/looked after time to time in order to have a smooth journey.mindfully seen to that its given all the nutrition for it to be able to generate all the energy & prana we need for this journey.we must indulge in all the good activities which can support that like.proper,exercise/diet/breathing/relaxation/thoughts/ & at the same time we must not abuse it by way of indulging into opposite to that.as the opposite will create nothing but lot of stress to the system.
Our breath is our prana
Its a life or life force, knowing & being intimate with our breath means knowing and being intimate with our life.That is what we all are trying to do by focusing on outer world but where in the key to joy of life is right there with us .its always been there right from the moment we are born to the moment we die yet we do not even notice it unless pressed upon our life.its the most important or one of most important thing in our life yet ignored substantially.pay attention to your breath on daily basis it has a strong connection with our body and mind.our relationship with life entirely depends upon our relationship to our breath.
It has a ultimate power to bring you what you what in life as it has a ultimate power to train you body and mind in that direction
Its a Brain in action. Thoughts.Feelings.Emotions
Our mind are the powerful & it can bring heaven to us if its trained & if left untrained it can create havoc.it totally in our hands the outcome of our mind.its profoundly connected with above all. every moment gathering informations in order to protect /survive /grow.however if its done in untrained way by accident everything happens in our life would be by accident & if its done in a wholesome trained way everything in our life would be as we want it to be.
Unfortunately most of our mind impression & information comes untrained from past lives/Ancestors/ life from 90 days of our conception to 9 years of our age.where we learn and gather all the related impression and information about the life & its functions.our brain is the sponge till age 9 & we are downloading the operative software for this world.every moment given by our surrounding, other people & their behavior which may or may not be best operative system for us.In order to have the life we want.we need to have our own program by rewiring & retraining the mind.
Our thought/feeling /emotions are the product of our accumulated past impression & information & we tend to get into redundant cycle of it by having same thought again and again leading into same feeling again & again creating the same thoughts again.
We need break the habit of compulsory engagement with them & empower ourself at will.

Action - Home/Events/functions/gatherings/meetings/shopping/cooking
Based on individual need one make a Customized daily time investment between the activities.
We must remember that external world is the true reflection of our internal world. whatever our internal world ll allow is what our external world will have.so it makes lot of sense to take care of our internal world in order to take care of our external world not other way around.
This is based on his own personal experience however one can adjust & customized the same based on their personal needs.however he highly recommends to follow rule of 5. he says if you follow the rule of 6 for 90 consecutive days.you ll start to notice the substantial change in your mental/emotional/physical wellbeing in turn contributing to your personal/social/financial/professional well being .
