The Three Doshas: Understanding the Real Cause Of Your Health Problems

Published

on

According to Ayurveda, not only our emotional state, but also our physical state depends on our state of mind, and as a result, our life as a whole. Our mind is closely related to our сonstitution, the prevailing dosha, and the state of this dosha. In this article, we will share with you how to understand the real cause of your health problems based on the knowledge of the three doshas.

What is Prakriti?

Prakriti is genetically determined physical and mental constitution of an individual. Every person has his/her own unique constitution which determines the biological functions, response to environmental factors, drugs, and also susceptibility to diseases.

The knowledge of prakriti not only helps to understand the mental and physical nature of a person but also to know the susceptibility to diseases which assists in promotion of health, prevention and cure of diseases.

In simple words, prakriti is our original nature given to us from birth. When the Prakriti is balanced, you are healthy and satisfied with your life. However, for many different reasons (education, the influence of society, external environment, bad habits, etc.), most modern people violate the harmony of their inner nature, changing it for the worse.

This distracted human nature (imbalance) is called Vikriti and leads to diseases (both physical and mental), premature old age, and death. One of the main tasks of Ayurvedic treatment is to restore and maintain the balance of doshas corresponding to Prakriti.

Ayurveda teaches us that there are several ways to bring Vikriti closer to Prakriti: proper nutrition, meditation, pranayama, yoga, and panchakarma.

The main and final goal of Ayurveda is the perfect balance of the three doshas – Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. The balance of the three doshas is a guarantee of good health and long life.

Focusing on the prevailing dosha, Ayurveda prescribes treatment with herbs and therapeutic effects, the nature of which is the opposite of the properties of this Dosha. For example, for Kapha, which tends to cold and humidity, drying and warming treatments are used, and so on.

To find your dosha take our Ayurvedic body type quiz!

Diseases Of The Three Doshas

The disease shows the characteristic properties of the dosha that caused it. We can determine the nature of a disease by its characteristic properties, just as we can determine the type of body constitution. The disease can be cured by means that balance the dosha that caused it.

Kapha Diseases (water or mucus):

  • most respiratory diseases;
  • colds;
  • flu;
  • asthma;
  • bronchitis;
  • swollen glands;
  • edema;
  • benign tumors.

The main signs of Kapha disorders: excess moisture, excessive tissue growth, and cold.

Kapha diseases are characterized primarily by the presence of mucus or sputum.

Pitta Diseases (fire or bile):

  • most infectious diseases;
  • febrile conditions; liver disorders;
  • high acidity;
  • ulcers;
  • boils;
  • skin rashes.

The main signs of Pitta disorders: fever, redness, and oiliness.

Pitta diseases are characterized primarily by feverish states or burning sensation.

Diseases of Vata (air or wind):

  • most nervous disorders;
  • insomnia;
  • tremor;
  • epilepsy;
  • paralysis;
  • arthritis.

The main signs of Vata disorders: dryness, cold, motor disorders, and tissue depletion.

Vata diseases are characterized primarily by pain.

In general, all diseases can be divided into three groups: diseases of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha according to the prevailing signs of particular doshas. However, the same disease can be caused by different doshas or their combinations.

The common cold in most cases is the nature of Kapha, and its main symptoms are mucus and congestion. Sometimes the cold may be of the nature of Pitta dosha, then it has the accompanying symptoms such as fever and sore throat which make it more severe.

Any disease can occur in different ways, but treatment should always follow the same principles, that is, based on the increase in which of the doshas caused the disease.

The Three Doshas And Diseases’ Localizations

three doshas in Ayurveda image

Most diseases can occur as a result of an imbalance in any of the three doshas. For example, arthritis can be caused by an increase in Vata, Pitta, or Kapha dosha. However, the nature of any disease is usually more characteristic of one of the doshas than the other — and arthritis is mainly caused by an imbalance of the Vata dosha.

To better understand this point, keep in mind that any doshas that reach too high a level tend to cause imbalances of other doshas. Being the forces that underlie the existence and functioning of the body, doshas are not only the factors that cause diseases but also the places where these diseases are localized. As such, they relate to the tissues, organs, and systems they control.

For example, diseases affecting the nervous system indicate that the localization of the disorder is Vata dosha, which controls the nervous system. These diseases most often belong to the type of Vata. However, they may also be of the nature of Pitta or Kapha doshas, since both can cause Vata disorders when they are overactive.

Usually, dosha aggravates the factors that are under its control. For example, overactive Kapha (mucus) tends to affect the lungs — the Kapha organ. But when a certain level of redundancy is reached, the dosha can affect another dosha, causing its imbalance. This is usually a sign of a more severe condition when this dosha has already caused disturbances in its “own” localities.

For example, too much Kapha, causing lung disease, can then affect the nervous system, as is the case with asthmatic shortness of breath or epilepsy resulting from mucus blockage of the thin channels, and thus affect the Vata dosha. Doshas interact with each other, so in severe diseases such as cancer, the balance of all three doshas can be disturbed simultaneously, which complicates treatment.

According to Ayurveda, it is not necessary to know the names of diseases and their forms. It is more important to know the properties of doshas and symptoms of their imbalance, which allows you to find out the causes of various diseases.

As soon as the excited dosha and the place of its manifestation are established, Ayurvedic doctor can prescribe a treatment regimen that reduces the level of this dosha.

The Excess Doshas

The symptoms of excess Vata:

  • sudden breakdown;
  • spasms;
  • numbness;
  • depression;
  • piercing, stabbing and beating pain;

  • cracking joints
  • contraction, delay in the body of waste materials;
  • thirst;
  • trembling;
  • skin roughness;
  • dehydration;
  • stiffness;
  • astringent taste in the mouth.

In these manifestations, the desiccating and destructive effects of the wind can be seen.

The symptoms of excess Pitta:

  • burning sensation;
  • redness;
  • fever;
  • boils;
  • sweating;
  • pus formation;
  • bleeding;
  • exhaustion;
  • fainting;

These symptoms show the searing and splitting effects of fire.

The symptoms of excess Kapha:

  • heaviness;
  • congestion;
  • obesity;
  • edema;
  • indigestion;
  • excessive sleep;

All this reflects the weight of the water and its tendency to stagnate.

Decreased Doshas

The symptoms of decreased Vata dosha:

  • a weakness of the limbs;
  • lack of speech and enthusiasm;
  • confusion of perception;

  • oil massage;
  • staying indoors;
  • eye lubrication;
  • a wine made from grain or sugar;
  • warm oil enemas, moderate cleansing enemas;
  • life in favorable conditions;
  • natural medicines that stimulate the digestive fire;
  • all kinds of oils.

Pitta dosha treatment

Understanding of the three doshas image
  • laxative therapy with sweet and cold herbs;
  • sweet, bitter, and astringent foods and herbs;
  • application of cold aromatic essential oils;
  • wearing gemstones around the neck;
  • relaxation in the moonlight;
  • beautiful chants;
  • cool wind;
  • unrestrained enjoyment;
  • communication with friends, spouse, family members;
  • reservoirs with cool water;
  • houses with extensive gardens.

Kapha dosha treatment

Kapha dosha treatment image
  • strong emetics and laxatives, following the instructions;
  • dry food that is also hot and spicy, bitter and astringent in moderate amounts;
  • old wine;
  • sexual pleasure;
  • staying awake at night;
  • all kinds of exercises;
  • mental work;
  • dry and vigorous massage;
  • burning herbal incense.

Conclusion

As you can see that the Ayurvedic methods that are traditionally used to bring the doshas into balance are whole sets of measures. This is not how western medicine treats a disease: “Take this pill and come back in a week.” In Ayurveda, all aspects of life are taken into account.

In addition, we must remember that it is important not only what we do, but also how we do it. We can use the right methods, but if our attitude to them is wrong, we cannot expect that these methods will give a good result.

For example, representatives of Vata tend to do everything hastily, chaotically, randomly. The Pitta type has a tendency to fanaticism and violence, to a rigid and authoritarian way of acting. People belonging to the Kapha type may be too slow or conservative.

Therefore, taking into account your dosha type, also try to balance the way you practice Ayurvedic knowledge.

7 Signs You are a Healer and Don’t Know It

Published

on

Signs You are a Healer Image

Healers have existed since ancient times. Healing abilities were passed down from generation to generation and have come down to our times. However, some people do not even know that they have the gift of a healer. It is transmitted to them at the genetic or spiritual level, and often this gift is brought from past lives. Many of us live with this special gift without even knowing about our healing potential. If you’re wondering if you are a spiritual healer, this article is for you! In this article, we will share with you 7 signs you are a healer.

7 Signs You are a Healer

Here are 7 telltale signs you are a healer that you shouldn’t ignore!

#1: You are an empath

As an empath, you instinctively feel what others feel. You are very sensitive to the energies/vibrations that surround you, both thoughts and emotions, of other people, animals, plants, and even spirits.

Being an empath makes you capable of feeling if someone else is experiencing pain long before they even say so. However, you should be careful as you run the risk of picking up that pain and mistaking it for your own.

#2: You have a strong connection with nature

born healer image

Nature is the source of vital energy. As a natural healer, you are, by definition, close to nature. Do you love to walk in the forest or by the ocean? Do you enjoy the sound of running water? Do you like to be around animals or surround yourself with plants and trees? Of course, you do, because this works great for natural healers like you as you feel that being in nature helps you to ground yourself and clear your aura from negativity or excessive energy. You may not even think about it but you just feel the need of being close to nature to “recharge” yourself.

#3: Strangers open up to you easily

Because of your empathic abilities, strangers feel comfortable and safe to open up to you and share their problems with you. Deep inside people intuitively feel that you can help them and therefore are attracted to you. The fact that someone decides to talk to you about a problem is an important step in the healing process. Your ability to listen, comfort, and support people is healing itself.

#4: You attract animals on your path

One of the signs you are a healer is your ability to attract animals on your path.

animal healer image

Do animals seem to follow you when you walk alone? Are cats, dogs, birds, or other animals attracted to you? Have you ever noticed that aggressive pets change their nervous behavior when meeting with you to friendly, or even affectionate? If this describes you then it could be a sign that you are a healer. Natural healers radiate the energy of a certain frequency that is visible to animals. When sensing the healing vibrations coming from you, animals want to be closer to you.

And this applies not only to pets. There are known cases when enraged wild animals unexpectedly not only calmed down when meeting with some people but also did not show aggressiveness. It is likely that this is how they indicated a meeting with healers.

#5: Your palms can radiate heat

People who are able to help others with the warmth of their hands, undoubtedly, have certain abilities. This kind of heat is not always felt only when you touch it. It is enough just to bring the palm closer to some part of the body, as this heat is felt by the patient.

This heat is a healing energy that is always active whenever someone in need for healing is around you.

#6: You tend to have vivid dreams

astral attack image

Do you tend to have vivid dreams? The unseen realm may be communicating with you through your dreams. You can receive information, advice, or instructions for solving problems and helping other people in your dreams. These dreams can even be prophetic.

Therefore, you should try analyzing your dreams carefully. If you don’t have a dream journal, it’s time to start one! Pay particular attention to any symbols, signs, or animal totems that may appear in your dreams, for these symbols, signs, and animals could be trying to send you an important message.

#7: You are very intuitive

Another sign you could be a healer is your good intuition. Do you have a very strong inner compass? Are your gut reactions usually spot on? Do you feel negative energy coming from some people even without looking or talking to them? Can you feel when particular places and buildings could be dangerous for spending time there even if they look safe and peaceful for others? Then you could be a natural healer.

You see, healers are naturally very intuitive and can sense and see what most people can’t. If this describes you, make sure you pay attention to your intuition, even if it contradicts what your rational mind is telling you.

Are You a Born Healer?

7 signs you are a born healer image

After reading the above 7 signs of being a healer, do you feel like this describes you? If this sounds like you, it’s time to embrace your healing potential and share your gifts with the world. Maybe you can even consider a healing job or at least doing your current job in some healing way.

If you are a born healer, you have that internal desire to help others. Think about different ways you can share your healing gifts. However, make sure you have healthy boundaries with your patients and don’t take their problems and pains as your own. Remember to always ground yourself, cleanse your aura, and practice energy hygiene.

Jnana Mudra: a Powerful Technique For Activating Your Crown Chakra

Published

on

Powerful Technique For Activating Your Crown Chakra Image

Jnana mudra is one of the most widely used mudras in meditation practices, in Buddhism, yoga, and even in the martial arts of the East. The Buddha’s hand performing the Jnana mudra at the heart level is a symbol of openness to the whole universe. Being a gesture of openness to new things, this mudra also symbolizes the true knowledge of existence.

In this article, we will share with you what Jnana mudra is, what its benefits are, and how to practice it.

What Is Mudra?

Mudra‘ can be translated as ‘gesture’. Hence mudras are symbolic gestures practiced with the hands and fingers.

Connecting the fingers in certain combinations, we can activate the meridians and direct energy throughout the body. Different positions of the fingers have the ability to close or clear the energy channels. In addition, performing this or that mudra, we affect the biologically active points of the palms and fingers.

Mudras help us to correct the direction of energy in the body, to control prana, and to improve the psycho-emotional state. Also, with their help, we can eliminate problems in the body and in the mind by pressing on particular acupuncture points.

What Is Jnana Mudra?

Jnana Mudra Practice Image

Jnana mudra is a yogic hand gesture that represents wisdom and knowledge. In Sanskrit, jnana means “wisdom” or “knowledge” and mudra means “gesture.” It is a hasta mudra, which means it is performed using the hands.

Connecting the fingers in certain combinations, we can activate the energy meridians and direct energy throughout the body, restore the flow of energy and eliminate “breakdowns” in diseased organs thus improve our health.

Different positions of the fingers have the ability to close or clear the energy channels. In addition, performing mudras, we affect the biologically active points of the palms and fingers.

When practicing Jnana mudra, we connect the thumb and index finger. The thumb symbolizes Brahman, or universal consciousness, whereas the index finger symbolizes Jivatma or the individual self. Therefore, the connection of the thumb and index finger represents the union of the supreme and inner realities. And the three extended fingers represent the three gunas that must be overcome: sattva (middle finger), rajas (ring finger), and tamas (little finger).

Each of the fingers has symbolic significance:

The index finger is associated with knowledge, wisdom, and self-confidence. It is connected to our life force.

The thumb is responsible for our ego, will, and logic. Also, this finger is associated with wisdom, mind, and awareness.

Also, it is important to know that each finger is associated with one of the 5 elements. Thumb represents the Fire element (Agni). The index finger is associated with the energy of the Air element (Vayu). Thus, Jnana mudra can be used to balance the elements of Fire and Air within the body. When we reach the balance between the Fire and Air elements within our bodies, we are able to still our mind, concentrate, and practice deep meditation.

Fingers Corresponding to the 5 Elements image

Also, the connection of the index finger and thumb allows prana to circulate freely inward, rather than dissipating outwards. By directing prana inward, we can sit in meditation for longer periods of time.

Jnana Mudra Benefits

On the subtle plane, the practice of Jnana mudra activates the Crown chakra (Sahasrara), whereas on the physical plan it helps you to harmonize biological rhythm, normalize blood pressure; eliminates anxiety and anxiety. Moreover, the regular practice of this mudra provides the following benefits:

  • helps to cope with depression and fatigue;
  • improves memory;
  • stimulates mental function;
  • helps to relieve insomnia;
  • boosts creativity;
  • develops intuition;
  • restores peace of mind;
  • enhances the connection with the Higher self;
  • lifts dull energy;
  • brightens mood.

How to Perform?

Although this mudra can be practiced in any yoga asana, it is most commonly used in a stable seated position such as easy pose or lotus pose. In Kundalini Yoga, this mudra is usually practiced with the hands resting on the knees and the elbows straight.

what is jnana mudra image
To practice Jnana mudra, follow these simple steps:
  1. Tuck your index finger under the tip of the thumb to form a circle.
  2. Extend the remaining three fingers.
  3. Rest the back of the hands on the thighs or knees, with palms facing upward.

Another variation of this mudra is to touch the tip of the index finger and thumb together, thereby forming a full circle.

When practicing this mudra, make sure your body is alert but relaxed, with little to no strain in the arms or extended fingers.

For maximum benefits, practice this mudra during your meditations for at least 15 minutes, 2-3 times per day.

Crystals For Chakras: How to Restore Your Energy Flow

Published

on

Crystals for chakras Image

Crystals have certain vibrations and a unique configuration of subtle energies. There are crystals that resonate with our energy centers that are able to harmonize and balance our chakras. The proper interaction with these stones and crystals can change the vibration of our cells and energy fields and improve our mental and physical health. In this article, we will share with you the most powerful crystals for chakras that can help you to balance and harmonize them.

Crystals and Chakras

Life is the circulation of energy. Energy flows through our bodies along the energy meridians and is concentrated in the energy centers – the chakras. Chakras are a kind of accumulator and at the same time generator of vital energy – Qi. Each chakra corresponds to the energy of its own frequency and of certain vibrations, such as color (wavelength) or the sound of a special mantra (frequency of sound vibrations).

The lower chakras (Muladhara, Svadhisthana, and Manipura) resonate with the lower frequencies of the earth, and the upper chakras (Anahata, Vishuddha, Ajna, and Sahasrara) respond to the high-frequency vibrations of the Cosmos. Thus, the human body is considered as an open system that is part of the general energy system “Earth-Human-Space”.

Essential Oils For Chakras Image

There are seven main chakras. Each of them is responsible for a certain sphere of human activity. Each chakra has its own color and is associated with a certain part of our body, as well as certain characteristics and aspects of our life.

Our chakras respond to the energy of the colors that we see during the day in nature, in food, and clothing. And when the chakras get into contact with the energy of stones, minerals, and crystals, they perceive it very actively. Therefore, so many healers use crystals for chakra balancing.

If you have a weak chakra and you feel a lack of energy in it, wear crystals that resonate with it as jewelry for its gentle healing and balancing. This is a gentle and safe method of chakra healing, which you can safely do on your own.

How to Use Crystals for Chakras?

If the chakra is not sufficiently supplied with energy, it always leads to physiological and psychological problems. The energy balance in the body is disturbed, general malaise is felt, diseases appear. Crystals can help to restore the energy level of the chakras, heal, and balance them.

Crystal Chakra Healing Therapy Image

Here are different ways you can use crystals for chakras:

#1: Crystal Meditation

Direct contact with the crystal allows you to raise the vibrations of body cells and energy fields. Meditation is the most profound form of communication with the crystal. Therefore, the best way to use the healing power of the crystals for chakras is to meditate with them. You can hold the crystal in your palms in front of a specific chakra or, if you prefer to meditate in Savasana, you can just place the crystal on the chakra.

#2: Crystal Jewelry

To restore the work of the chakras, you can wear talismans and jewelry with chakra crystals. For balancing your Root chakra wear crystal pendants. For your Solar plexus chakra wear a crystal belt. For your Heart chakra balancing, wear pendants with crystals. For the Throat chakra, wear crystal necklaces. Bracelets on the wrists affect all the chakras, so you can always wear them. If you wear a bracelet on your left hand – the main effect of the stone will be directed at you and if you wear it on the right hand – on the people around you.

#3: Massage

To activate the chakra and remove the blockage, a massage with healing stones or crystals for chakras is a perfect way to get a quick result. Just make sure that the massage of the energy centers is performed gently and safely.

#4: Crystal Charged Water

Healing water, charged with crystals, helps to purify the chakras. To charge the water with healing crystals, use a glass, ceramic, or porcelain jug or bowl.

Place a crystal in a jar, jug, or bowl filled with purified (preferable spring) water and leave it for the night.

You can drink crystal charged water in the morning, or use it for chakra ritual baths.

Don’t forget to cleanse your crystals before and after using them.

The Bottom Line

Crystals for chakras is a simple yet very effective way to balance your energy field and harmonize energy circulation in your chakras. By placing crystals on the chakra centers, the healing vibrations given off by the stone will correct imbalances within the chakra and restore your energy flow.
