Emotional balance: Ayurveda method
Ayurveda experts have long understood the importance of stable emotional health. This science of natural health offers a variety of strategies and specific recommendations to maintain the balance of emotions throughout a person’s life.
From an ayurvedic point of view, emotionally poor health is caused by a lack of coordination between individual senses, emotions and thoughts. From the point of view of Ayurveda, the heart and mind are closely connected. When this connection is weak, problems arise. Interestingly, in Ayurveda, the heart is considered a “place” of consciousness.The main Ayurvedic ancient Charaka Samhita text is: “Hridaye chetana sthanam.” This translates as “The place of consciousness is in the heart.” Ayurvedic texts also describe the heart as ‘Hrdaya‘. This Sanskrit word consists of three parts – each with its own meaning:
- “HR” means getting
- “Yes” to give
- “Z”-to move
The essential qualities of the heart are contained in this name in Sanskrit–receiving, giving and moving. The following is described as “the Mahi”-Great and “Artha“-serving all purposes, which in Ayurveda means that it is a body with various important functions. The texts of the “Chapaka” continue to describe the heart as “indispensable for all mental and physical activities“, because the whole feeling and general perception depends on the heart.
Further on the heart is described as “dusty“-a place of consciousness and mind. It is so important in Ayurveda that it is considered the main supporting beam in the house without this support it will collapse.
Ayurveda works with Emotions
According to Ayurveda, the lack of ability to promptly process emotions is the main cause of emotional imbalances.
Some people are able to judge their emotions quickly, which means they are able to release them and continue with their lives without bearing their weight in their future. For others, processing or deeper work with thoughts is slower, so negative impressions and experiences remain with them for a very long time, and this affects their current thoughts, emotions and perceptions of life, resulting in a negative mood, bad Self-esteem and ill health.
The role of Agni in Ayurvedic emotional processing
The digestive fire, called Agni, is responsible for the absorption of food. But in fact the Agni or “metabolic mechanism” is also in every cell of our body and in every subdosha. Think of the dosii and the doshshshas/as for the Ayurvedic management systems. They, according to ancient texts, govern various functions of physiology and mind. The doers are like assistant managers.
The Ayurvedic approach to human health and wellbeing is based on the concept that there is a profound connection between mind, body and spirit. The philosophy of Ayurveda states that there is no division between the three. One cannot sustain physical health if his mind is unhappy, unsatisfied, lazy and unbalanced. The disease process always begins first on the spiritual level, then progresses through the mental and emotional level and finally begins to act on the physiology of the body.
This process of developing and worsening the condition of the entire relationship can take many years, and in cases of severe tension or chronic emotional instability, symptoms can also occur immediately. Ayurveda definitely recognizes a an integral connection between people and everything else in the universe. Therefore, it is not surprising that Ayurveda strongly advocates the acceptance of harmonious and respectful relations with nature.
Aûrvednata Medicine is based on the laws of nature and uses naturally occurring substances, therapies and combinations between them for a deep and full, curative effect on the overall state of the human spirit, psyche and body. These include:
- Essential Oils
There are also daily rituals for health (Dinacharya), including nocturnal (Ratricharya), combinations of seasonal changes (Ritucharya), appropriate combinations of food. In this sense, it is said about feeding the dows of the individual in Prkriti (primary constitution) or Doshi in Vikriti (imbalances), known as Ahara for feeding. Application find practices such as:
- Treatment and rejuvenation habits (Rasasana)
- Individual Yoga therapy for Doshi (Aûroga)
- Meditation with sound (mantras)
- Combination therapies for body massage (Abhianga)-Head (Široabhanga), Hands (Hasbhanga) and legs (Padawan)
Padbhianga (Padabyhanga) massage involves techniques such as rubbing the hands, knuckles, feet and feet, which stimulates blood flow and lymph. These techniques also help the life flow of “prana”, giving a positive, stimulating energy to the body and mind. The system of chakras is connected to the feet. Massaging them with their hands or walking on the ground helps their balancing.
Padabhyanga includes two additional Ayurvedic therapies:
- Foot massage with “Kansa Vatki” (vessels made from 3 metals-tin, bronze and zinc-see below)
- The Marma is a therapy that works with points to balance the energy spots.
Metals are widely used in Ayurvedic treatments:
- Copper helps to reduce pain, inflammation and arthritis, and also improves the quality of hemoglobin
- Zinc helps the proper functioning of the digestive and immune systems
- The tin is believed to be useful in digestion, relieves headaches and insomnia.
It is a very powerful, subtle and intuitive practice that seeks deep healing, ranging from the deepest energies to the most physical parts of our being. This practice works with Marma points (mini chakras) that are located all over our body. These points are retained for a period of 30 seconds to several minutes, which can lead to very soft or hard pressure, depending on the intuitive sensation of the therapist.
Marma therapy always works on:
- The Crown Chakra
- Ajon Chakra
- Heart Chakra
This creates the feeling of deep peace, space and powerful healing. Essential and curative oils are used to support relaxation and delivery of positive energy and healing suggestions. Each session is different depending on the needs of the person at the time. Sessions can range from 60 Minutes-2 hours.
Is your sadhaca Agni balanced?
Symptoms of imbalance:
- If a person has trouble making major decisions or takes a long time to make simple decisions, this may be a sign that there is a low “sadhaca Agni”. In this situation, if “AMA” (toxins) that block the micro communication channels of the body accumulate can lead to a low mood
- Another symptom of “Sadhaca Agni” is the loss of ability to judge the positive and negative merits of a particular situation. For example, when you have to decide whether a person can become a good friend
- Lack of perseverance is another indicator of low “sadhaca Agni”. If a person has problems with fulfilling the commitments or performing their daily tasks and is unable to achieve their goals, this can also be the result of slow “sadhaca Agni”. One example is people who postpone a lot, never do their work on time, and therefore fail in their lives as a whole, in most cases or in certain basic spheres
