Healing Power of Mind:
The quality of our life, health, happiness, our creative accomplishments all arise in our minds. As Yogananda says: “As soon as you understand that the mind controls everything, you will be completely free”.
Just as we have a daily food diet, we also have a mental diet that we are often not fully aware of! Thoughts and mental habits arise automatically, apparently by their own will. Even when we are not fully aware of them, they strongly affect our health, favoring or blocking the flow of healing cosmic energy which is always available to us but which we must learn to attract into our lives in a correct and effective way. We must begin, then, with becoming aware and mindful of our thoughts.
Among the topics covered:
• How thoughts and words affect your emotions, your behavior, and your health
• How to evaluate your “mental diet” in order to determine which aspects of it are healthy or harmful
• Powerful techniques for creating constructive mental habits
• How to develop more faculties of the mind: concentration, willpower, and the ability to visualize How to use the conscious mind to restructure subconscious habits and emotions
The Life Therapy exercises you will practice include those from the March workshop:
• Energy recharge: it includes 39 exercises that will bring prana directly to cells, muscles, tissues, and organs. Mindfulness requires a higher level of energy, especially in the brain.
• Exercises for a superconscious life: a series of 6 simple exercises that elevate our mental perspective and activate greater awareness. These are “quick start” techniques to banish subconscious programming and stimulate mental awakening.
• Pranic techniques for self-healing include using the breath to awaken energy and direct it into the brain and upper energy centers. Also included will be affirmations, visualization and mantra.
• Meditation techniques that concentrate the powers of the mind and calm emotional disturbances. We will focus on an effective concentration technique that brings peace and self-awareness. It is used with a powerful mantra.
