Meditation has its root meaning 'to measure'
What is generally called meditation is but concentration . Concentrating on a particular object,sign,set of syllables,breath,sound,light etc!. One set of thought curbing or struggling to suppress other thoughts . SUPPRESSION IS THE KEY WORD, and the outcome is conflict struggle and pushing the problem deeper! By associating with some religious symbols or mantras or signs,one considers it as a very sacred act!
And the repetitive-ness brings about 'peace' which is nothing but drowsing the mind akin to hpno- therapy where subconscious mind is lulled by repetitive activity of the mind.
Mantras--Chanting of mantras which have a specific meaning and vibration does shape ones psyche in a desired form to re enforce and superimpose a chosen thought pattern over the pre-existing pattern ,to temporarily achieve the desired mental state. But it is extremely VIOLENT as it fights the existing, opposite pattern , overpowering and suppressing it,only for the suppressed thought pattern to express itself in magnified and virulent form at a later stage!!!!
T ANOTHER GIMMICK OF MIND TO KEEP ITS CONTINUITY.And its unfortunate that one does not have any other tool other than mind at one's disposal!
one can alter ones physiology with various drugs like L.S.D,MESCALIN [Reduces oxygen and glucose to the parietal lobe which functions in self identification of the self]and have some wonderful psychic or religious experiences. One can stop the oxygen supply to the brain by holding the breath or bring about hypothermia and change the sphere of visual and audio perception and have these so called religious experiences.
After the end of all this struggle and effort, one essentially remains the same.one remains with the insecurities, the conflicts, the sorrow and the quest for eternal happiness!
And the effort and the conflict gradually brings about a neurosis of a kind,which may or may not be visible or classifiable. The ego of a person practicing meditation or sadhna of any kind is thus bloated [may or may not be concealed] as the doer strenthens itself in doing!with ever widening gulf of division between I and you!
It is nothing but "high" which one seeks ,either through yoga or meditation
Bored with daily routine life,one seeks sensual pleasure of a kind in form of religious or spiritual experiences.or when the mind is saturated by daily life worries,anxiety,trauma,one seeks an outlet through meditation, and the peace which one experiences is but a gap between two worries or stressful situations.
AS LONG AS ONE KEEPS ON PURSUING AN IDEAL STATE OF PEACE AND TRANQUILITY, OVERLOOKING WHAT ONE IS[ONES TURMOIL], ONE WILL KEEP ON PURSUING IT FOR ETERNITY!
SPIRITUAL GYMNASIUM AND ENLIGHTENMENT
Yoga kriyas ,kundalani awakening techniques, tantric sex and various other forms of meditation and sadhna are flooded in spiritual market promising peace ,eternal happiness and spiritual growth . And the outcome of all this is the society, we live in!!!
All this effort and struggle is to attain an idealistic state ,ignoring what 'one is'
a movement away from unitary life energy,which is always in present.
One who is taking you into an inner journey,does not know ,that by dividing the self into inner and outer he is making sure ,that he is perpetuating the existing conflict.
In a nutshell as long as the meditator is different from the meditation, There always will be duality and conflict, and there is no way they can become one.
Mankind has been taken for a ride by the gurus into believing that meditation is a gradual evolutionary process at the end of which , waits liberation, the final bait!!!!

AND THE CONTENT OF OUR CONSCIOUSNESS IS OUR UPBRINGING,OUR SOCIAL AND CULTURAL MILEU,OUR KNOWLEDGE AND MEMORY AND OUR GENETIC MAKE -UP
A GOOD COUNSELOR IS ONE WHO TRIES TO SHOW YOU DIFFERENT POINT OF VIEWS
A BETTER COUNSELOR IS ONE WHO SHOWS YOU 'THE ABSOLUTE' POINT OF VIEW
the most important thing one may realize is that,"one is not ,the captain of his ship".
all in the genes-
Latest scientific studies and researches have proved that genes play most prominent role in deciding the physical,mental ,'spiritual' and behavioral constitution of a person.
Even faith is hardwired into our genes.Human beings bear a gene which predisposes them to be religious and experience mystical or spiritual experiences.
The neurotransmitters are behind one co-relating with a particular personality trait.So its the break down of these neurotransmitters ,which is brought about by genes ,which makes one aspire for salvation, or one being an atheist or a rationalist!
So whatever one is,whatever ones inclination are, whatever one perceives oneself as or aspires to be is all because of one's genetic make-up!
Latest evidence from brain researches reveal that we mostly use our reptilian and mammalian brain than our human brain, which is left to justify and rationalize the instinctive and reactive behavior of other two brains[brain can be divided into three parts]
Our "freedom of action" is governed by our fundamental biochemical make-up.
so, it sounds unfortunate , but that is how it is-we are not free!
our belief in free will is also determined!
Each of us is shackled from birth to a genetically determined future,bound by the chains of the D.NA double helix!
.The conditioning to a lesser extent then shapes us on the back-ground of our personalities or biochemical make-up.we are made to conform to the
values of the society into which we are born through our upbringings and
the influence of geological,cultural and political forces around us.
Biologist maintain that all moods and emotions are closely associated with certain chemicals
This organism 'man' is so mechanistic that one's ego ceases to accept this as accepting this is a threat to its existence .
And freedom thus is only another notion or word with no significance!

AS LONG AS ONE STRIVES TO CHANGE ONE SELF FUNDAMENTALLY,ONE CANNOT CHANGE !
There is a constant struggle and duality in trying to change oneself from what one is in present to what one wants to become in future" A constant fight between two divisions of one singular mind.One thought trying to suppress or curb the other, eventually leading to misery and frustration.
SELFISH TO THE CORE-
The one special,unique and unfortunate feature which differentiates man from the rest of the living forms is the"ego" or "I",and the man keeps on nurturing and strengthening this self-image for the rest of "his life" with his growing experiences .With the formation of this ego or a new referral point, the absolute
becomes relative.And everything is perceived by this center and all the perception is subjected to the content of this image which is a sum total of experiences and memory of the"individual".With formation of the ego at a young age,future life will be seen through one's particular pair of glasses!!!!!!!!!!
And here starts the division ---ME AND YOU. Life,which simply is ,becomes "my life"
All the actions originate from this center ,and thus man can not help being selfish! Everything,including all the"selfless activities " and "charitable deeds" are self centered!

HYPNOSIS AND ITS DEMYSTIFICATION
for hypno therapy in delhi- call 91-9818089129
The word hypnosis is shrouded with mystery ever since the term was coined.
The word hypnosis is a misnomer, meaning sleep in greek
The exact origin of hypnotism is lost in the mist of time,but undoubtedly it was prevalent in the ‘sleep temples’ of Egypt from where it spread to Greece.but even earlier than Egypt it was quite popular in India for thousand of years.
It was Swiss doctor, friedrich anton mesmer, who in 1775 published his theory of ‘animal magnetism’. There is magnetism in the human body and this magnetism has curative powers.
What is hypnosis?
Mind, which is essentially one can be divided into conscious and subconscious.
Your conscious mind does the thinking of which you are aware, whereas the latter is a vast vaulted warehouse in which are treasured all hidden thoughts and impressions, which keep on shaping ones actions throughout the life..
Hypnosis is nothing but the conditioning and the reconditioning of the subconscious.
All your likes, dislikes, prejudices, fears ,phobias,sense of morality,religious and mundane beliefs are but a result of your genes and conditioning, the inputs you are incessantly receiving from your parents the state and your social environment are constantly shaping your life.so you already are,right from your birth,a hypnotic subject and a hypnotist too!!!
Conscious mind is the censor; it thrives on logic and rationalization, The subconscious mind is like a obedient slave, it accepts all the cumulative suggestion , including that of the conscious mind .
scope of hypnosis-
It is a very vast field,as one is venturing the mind, which is unfathomably mysterious and mostly unexplored.It has ever-widening frontiers.
The author in his personal experiences has even tried future life progression in addition to past life regression,which is normaly practiced to some success.
The 'individual mind' is at some level connected to 'the world mind'.World mind is a collection of all the human experiences and knowledge ever present.This world mind seems to have some link to the subconcious mind of an individual.Author has seen that under hypnotic spell,it is possible to 'access' the world mind.The subject can relate any information or knowledge,which may not be a concious part of his experiencing structure.For example a subject of mine was able to relate the minute details of the egypian pyramids,without ever knowing anything about it conciously. Another subject could explain all about astrology, while conciously, he had no belief or knowledge of astrology.
mind cannot help bieng conditioned,and only one in a billion has a mind[enlightened] which is de-conditioned. Re-conditioning,though is possible, and this is acheived with the help of HYNOSIS.Habits can be re-modified and pattern of mental activity, reshaped! as desired.
It plays a imp. role in DE-ADDICTION,INSOMNIA,STAMMERING,DEPRESSION,
IMPOTENCY,FEAR AND PHOBIAS

Bach flower remedies are a unique form of energy medicine that has become increasingly popular among alternative healthcare professionals; Dr edward bach ,a trained allopath physician and a homeopath of U.K IN 1930 had an insight when he found that the dew on fresh blossoms of certain plants, when exposed to the light and warmth of the morning sun, contained a certain "essence" of the plant's energetic qualities, which had a profound effect on the human psyche. He then developed a modified preparation method, which is currently in use, by collecting fresh blossoms and placing them on the surface of a bowl of water, exposed to the morning sun, until the essence of the flower has been infused into the water.
When the appropriate essence is ingested by a person (several drops, several times a day), it awakes an awareness of a particular emotional and/or mental pattern that is repressed or in conflict, assisting the person to make lasting changes.
Bach's intention was that flower essences are selected to address the issues affecting the person's psyche, , and through changes in attitude and awareness physical health is impacted. Thus, a clinician using flower essences generally does an intake interview exploring the psychological aspects of a person's condition. Once the individual is understood as a whole being, a selection of several flower essences may be given as catalysts for psycho-spiritual change and greater mind-body health.
The effects of Bach Remedies are 'dynamic' and not physiological. In other words, you cannot harm anyone in any way by so-called overdosing or wrong prescription.
Again, there are no side-effects or contra-indications. Also, no diet restrictions and can be taken while you are on other forms of treatment/therapy. (Anything dissolved in sugar base or alcohol or honey have no expiry date. Bach Remedies are available in the form of tiny sugar pills. Hence these have no expiry date.)Unbalanceed Emotions" in psyche. (i.e. frustration, grief, mental shock, numbness, apathy, uncontrolled anger, bitterness, excessive shame, guilt, arrogance, envy, jealousy, greed, fear, suspicious nature, inferiority complex, persistent agony or melancholy, grieving, mental instability, tension, stress, escapism or shilly-shallying tendencies, communication apprehension, poor will power, low grasping, absentmindedness, sloth, laziness, dawdling, dodging etc.)
are catered and medicines help in bringing down the mental excesses
When one begins the process of the scientific study of alternative therapies, such as flower essences, one must appreciate the necessity to consider alternate ways of utilizing the scientific method. The study of metaphysical events using classic psycho physiological methods, alone, leaves something to be desired. Negative findings, rather than it being a statement about the veracity of the metaphysical phenomena itself, could represent the fact that one is looking for results in the wrong place or has chosen to monitor the wrong physiological system. of energetic fields produced by flower essences However the evidence can be found in color-plate photographs by the German researcher Dieter Knapp.
Using a variation of the Kirlian method, Dr. Knapp placed a drop of each flower essence on special photographic film. Each essence produced a distinct pattern, described by Knapp as an indicator of its characteristic bio energy pattern.

Do stars just symbolically point out at an individual ,his constitution and the all the upcoming life events? or have they a concrete affect on the person's life?
There is a school of thought,[most common]which believes that they are constantly affecting us physically as well as mentally. Vedic astrology gives them a
status of god and god heads.Planets are thus worshiped and various mantras and gems associated with the planets
The other theory is that ASTROLOGY is a mystical art which deciphers the course of ones life with the relative current relation of planets[9 of them] to there position at the time of the individuals birth at a particular place[longitude]
So in that case, The astrological chart is just a symbolic code ,Which can be decoded to know about the subject.and the planets are mere pointers,with no substantial effect on humanity.
Author here maintains that all the planets and the constellation are independent,potent images of energy ,built over a period of time as a result of a belief[content of collective consciousness] of a society.The images[of planets and constellations ] which was coined "archetype" by c jung have a physical existence of their own and impact on the psyche of an individual and thus influencing the course of actions. Astrological chart is a symbolic representation of ones genetic make-up.As ones entire life is determined by the D.N.A,The chart in a way represents one's character which eventually turns into action!
REMEDIES AND RELIGION-Thus work by influencing the "archetypes" , which in turn influences our mental picture in a desired way.All the mantras,worships and upayas have the same principle. This explains ,how belief in any religion or god and its practice is aimed at bringing about the 'desired change' or fulfilling ones desire. The image [mental,with physical substance] of a particular god,with its unique way of worshiping ,its symbolic language has become potent due to the combined input of mental energy[worship,mantras,belief in mythological stories,and various other religiuos practices], of a group or a sect of people sharing same cultural belief and mythologies over a large span of time .They now in turn influence the individual psyche of people of a particular cultural background.This explains why some 'forbidden practice's in say,HINDU religion ,if practiced by a Christian doesn't seem to have any impact on him and vice versa!

WHEN HARRY MET SALLY!
When two individuals meet,they carry with themselves, their individual chemistry and the outcome is akin to a chemical reaction when two [or more] chemicals react.There may be a glow!
,a spark!, fumes! ,chemicals not mixing[retaining their own identity] or in some cases a BANG!!!!!
The outcome of the interaction between different personalities may have or lack
the "rasa".The pre-determined genetic make up or dosha in ayurvedic terms determines ,how a person is going to react[as one never acts] in different circumstances.couple astrology aims at predicting the outcome of a 'union'
Do they agree,adapt,disagree,confront,understand or misunderstand with each other .HINTING at their physical and mental compatibility,weather the 'events' in ones life are going to facilitate peace and harmony in ones life.
Stars indicate one's love preferences,one's tastes,one's idea of romance,passion. What one is looking for in one's spouse.What qualities are attractive in opposite sex.
