When the Ajna Chakra is strong, an individual can be under tremendous stress and still smile!”
Master Choa Kok Sui
During times of uncertainty, it is important to remember that stress is nothing but a form of energy. However, stress energy is as real as our thoughts are real. Negative thoughts, negative emotions and stress contaminate the Aura. It is vital to remove the stress accumulated through the years, or it can manifest as a physical ailment in the future.
It is not possible to remove stress completely from our lives and it is not even advisable to do so. But we can learn how to manage it to live a healthy and happy life.
The below simple techniques can help you deal with stress.
Taking a Salt Water Bath
Bathing with warm water, salt, and lavender oil helps cleanse the aura thoroughly. In general, it’s recommended to use a few drops of lavender oil. Sometimes, a few drops of tea tree oil can be added as well. This helps one feel fresh and get mental clarity as well.
It’s important to apply the salt in the proper manner. “After cleansing your body with soap and water, rub the entire body gently with fine salt. Then wash it off after about one or two minutes.” (Master Choa Kok Sui, Miracles Through Pranic Healing, 2006)
As an experiment, we can scan our aura and chakras before and after taking the salt water bath. Note the difference in the quality and quantity of the aura and chakras after one day, one week and one month of taking a salt bath daily.
Listening to Soothing Music
“Once, suffering from a severe headache, Master Choa Kok Sui, instead of seeking treatment, experimented by listening to soothing music, and found the headache reduced.” (Master Choa Kok Sui, Miracles Through Pranic Healing, 2006)
He observed that relaxing the mind helps the body heal itself, and focusing on the pain and trying to remove it makes healing difficult. On the other hand, diverting the attention to something pleasant speed up the rate of healing.
The emphasis is on soothing music. While there are numerous different preferences in music, for the purpose of healing and reducing stress, it is advisable to listen to soothing sounds. Of course, for physical activity and exercising, more upbeat music is generally recommended. Many spiritual practitioners have a tendency of advocating purely soothing music at all times; it’s important to avoid rigid attitudes and cultivate the virtue of moderation and non-excessiveness.
As always, scan and check the condition of your aura and chakras before and after listening to different types of music.
Remember to Take Deep Abdominal Breathing
“Certain Breathing exercises physically purify the body and psychologically purify the soul. Breathing exercises regulate your emotions and your thoughts. Breathing increases your overall energy level. Some breathing exercises, when practiced properly, upgrade the quality of the brain.” (Master Choa Kok Sui, Beyond the Mind, 2011)
Proper Breathing gives you calmness and stillness emotionally and mentally. Through right breathing exercises, you may achieve effortless inner calmness. Through proper breathing exercise the body becomes highly charged with Life Energy or Prana.
Stress changes the breathing pattern; it becomes tense, shallow and rapid. This is the opposite of the natural way of breathing. By purposefully taking deep, relaxing abdominal breaths, while simultaneously bringing the attention to the movement of air in and out of the nostrils greatly calms the mind.
Scan your aura and chakras before and after 7 cycles of Pranic Breathing. Inculcate the habit of breathing exercises into your daily routine at the start of the day to keep your energy levels high and stress levels low.
Try Meditation on Twin Hearts
During times of stress, it is quite important to also do the Meditation on Twin Hearts daily. MCKS advises, “When you are very busy, do not cut down on your Meditation. Do meditation so that you will be more productive and more effective. The aura is cleansed by the use of the Mantra and the Meditation.” (Master Choa Kok Sui, Beyond the Mind, 2011)
When doing Twin Hearts Meditation, Diving Energy radiates throughout your aura. Unwholesome emotions and thoughts are expelled and your mind becomes calm and peaceful. When the water is turbulent, it is difficult to see through it. Meditation on Twin Hearts reduces inner turbulence. There is Calmness and Stillness.
With regular practice of Meditation on Twin Hearts, one can greatly control stress, and also improve their relationships, overall well-being and benefit spiritually.
List Down Your Tasks & Prioritize
The last item on this list is an unusual, yet highly effective, one. Presently, we are living in unprecedented times and working from the safety of our homes. Since our home and work environments have become the same now, the chances of getting stressed due to work are likely to be significantly higher.
In fact, we might feel that we have a lot of work to do and we feel overwhelmed. We might snap at our family members, unwittingly using them as psychic garbage cans. This can make an already anxious environment more stressful. We can avoid that by writing down the tasks and prioritizing them.
By utilizing the principles of Spiritual Business Management, we can organize our tasks into Urgent and Important and do those first. The tasks which are less urgent and less important can be done later. By having an objective measurement, it can help us see the bigger picture and manage our time more effectively.
Being organized can help us break responsibilities down into manageable tasks. If there are some tasks in which we can get help from others, we have to remember to ask.
You do not need to do everything on your own. Remember, it’s ok to ask for help. Remember, always, to invoke for Divine Help, Divine Guidance and Divine Protection.
