True Freedom

DSC01586

Our country achieved freedom from foreign rule 67 years back, but have we attained true freedom yet…?

As a life coach I come across  many people during my talks and workshops. The one thing I find common in most of them is that they are not free. Rather, most are imprisoned in the self created web of guilts, regrets, hurts, fears, self doubts, limiting self beliefs, etc. This happens with all of us. The web gets denser and stronger day by day, and a point comes when we feel impossible to break through it and get out. We become prisoners.

I know of a lady who has gone through lot of suffering in her life for almost a decade after her marriage. She was married in a joint family and was ill-treated by her in-laws. As a result she went through a lot of trauma. After about 10 years of marriage the couple moved out of the house and the family business into an independent life. But even today when we meet she talks only about those 10 years of distress in her life.

Once she told me , “I want to try your PLR therapy. I am curious to find out how my in-laws were related to me in my past birth. They have made my life miserable.”

“Sure we can. But what is the problem now? You are the master of your own life . I feel it is high time you let go of the past.” I replied.

“You don’t understand. It is easier said than done. They have spoiled 10 beautiful years of my life. How can I let go?” she said somewhat irritated.

I realized that she had completely ensconced herself in the self created web of victimhood. So much so that she was thriving on the sympathy gained from people around her and was comfortable living that way.

When we are born, we are free spirits. We can easily cry, laugh , make mistakes, forgive people, and let go. we don’t carry any baggage. Hence as a child we can experience freedom. Nothing is impossible for a small child. He is ready to explore anything because he lives in that space of ‘freedom’, where everything is a possibility.

Then what happens as we grow…? We are told, ” you are a grown up boy now and boys are not supposed to cry!” or “you are a girl, you are not supposed to laugh so loudly!”,” What will people say?”, “you should do this and you shouldn’t do this”. ” you cannot think in a particular way” and stuff like that…Our life slowly gets defined by the dos and don’ts of the society. Without realizing we get moulded in a way people  around us want us to. Even the freedom of thoughts is taken away from us. We are supposed to think how other people want us to think. Sounds ridiculous, but its true, and we start living a life of others. Slowly we start thinking that this is how life has to be lived, in a set pattern, confined and defined by the society, caged in the negative beliefs.

To experience true freedom we need to go back to the time when we were born…. by stripping off the layers of conditioning around us and letting free that inner child. Do what we always wanted to do in life rather than being dictated by others around us. We must realize our true potential to achieve greatness in life. We need to break free from the cage of dogmas, set patterns limited self beliefs, feeling of being victim, helplessness, fears, deceits and other negative emotions such as anger, jealousy, resentment, guilt, and regret….. and live as if “Sky is Not the Limit”…..  in True Freedom.

Beat work stress in just 12 minutes

Mounting pressure at work got you pulling your hair out? Know that you are not alone. Recent statistics show that stress is the number one lifestyle risk among Indian employees. The rising stress at workplaces is causing an array of physical issues as well as psychological problems. From high BP, diabetes, pains and aches and insomnia to depression, fears, anxiety, fatigue, lethargy, and many more.

Stress works like a vicious cycle. Each time we experience a stressful situation, we become anxious or fearful, our breathing pattern changes drastically and stress hormones are released in the blood stream. If these stress hormones are not metabolized over time, it can destabilize our normal body functions and lead to emotional and mental issues. This in turn leads to more stress. This effect can be reversed at an early stage of the cycle. The most effective way to do this through our breath.

The fact is astonishing; 70% of our metabolic waste is eliminated through breathing; the balance 30% is eliminated through perspiration (19%), urination (8%) and defecation (3%).Our body gets the energy to purify, rid itself of toxins and stresses, and to rejuvenate because of our breath. Yet very few of us pay attention to it; rather how we breathe. However, correct breathing allows us to access unlimited amounts of energy, which we can use to carry out the repair work within us.According to life coach, PLR therapist and author of the bestselling book KEYS, Santosh Joshi, the 12-minute SKY Healing technique allows you to do just that.

He says, “A combination of tapping, breathing and visualization, SKY is a quick and effective method that instantly reduces your stress. The best part is that it takes only takes 12 minutes. If practiced regularly, it perfectly harmonizes the body, mind and soul.”

For instance, you have an important presentation to make and are feeling very anxious about it, doing SKY will automatically make you feel better, bring down your anxiety, give you confidence and allow you to focus better. This new-age technique is especially for professionals who don’t have time for other time-consuming stress-relief processes.

Jyotsna Nair, an HR consultant, says, “I suffered from insomnia for many years. SKY has cured it and is a confidence booster to me. I am no more affected by the work pressure at my office. I am self-motivated and driven to achieve my goals.”

Another SKY practitioner from Delhi, Dr Latika Sharma, a microbiologist attached to AIIMS, says, “SKY has helped heal my cervical spondylosis and other my aches and pains.”

Santosh adds, “Since it liberates us from negative emotions, which is the root cause of our physical diseases, we also heal physically. By practicing SKY, people have recovered from phantom pains, diabetes and blood pressure issues and many others lifestyle diseases.”

Even the visualizations during SKY are so effective that it helps manifesting whatever we are looking for, be it professional growth, material gains, better relationships, etc. On the whole, the technique shows you your highest potential.
