Main Treatment Options for Atrial Fibillation

Atrial fibrillation is a condition marked by a fast heartbeat, dizziness, chest pain and feeling lightheaded. If you have noticed these symptoms, it is possible that you have developed atrial fibrillation or “a fib” for short.

Atrial fibrillation is also referred to as cardiac arrhythmia. In many instances, the condition develops later in life. There are varying degrees of the condition and your cardiologist is the best person to help you determine whether or not you are always in a state of “a fib” or only at certain times.

Natural treatment for atrial fibrillation

This is often determined by wearing a heart monitor for a 24- or 48-hour period. Your cardiologist then reviews the results and determines the best course of treatment. For many patients, this means being placed on a blood thinner.

Some patients do better with a medical procedure that helps “shock” the heart back into a more normal beating pattern. This is called electrical cardioversion. Still other patients, those with more constant atrial fibrillation, do better receiving a pacemaker to bring the heart rate under constant control. This form of treatment would require being admitted to a hospital to be done.Treatment for atrial fibrillation

Many patients can leave the hospital and recover from pacemaker insertion the same day, but for more serious cases, an overnight stay may be required. Recovery time can be anywhere from six to eight weeks.

Most of the time a variety of medications are used before more invasive procedures are done. It may take several tries to find the right medicine for you and you will need to visit your doctor regularly for monitoring and testing until the right medicine is found for your particular case of atrial fibrillation.

The ultimate goal of a fib treatment is to help your heart beat regularly. This way, you can avoid further complications such as a stroke or heart attack.

Coping with anxiety through martial arts

“To win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the highest skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the highest skill.” — Sun Tzu, The Art of War

A lot has been said about martial arts. There’s a lot punching, kicking, and wrestling involved — all considered as systems and tools of brutal force. This notion or preconceptions about the martial arts were developed, in a large measure, due to films and movies that depicted the combative arts as a means of inflicting violence. But in reality, the true aim of martial arts is quite exactly the opposite. At the core of every fighting philosophy are the values of valor, chivalry, nobility, self-control, and self-sacrifice. This art form is not just about fighting, combat, or self-defense. Martial arts philosophy stresses that people should live in peace and harmony. It also emphasizes respect for self and others, compassion, and a high regard for physical and moral excellence. In its purest form, the martial arts is practiced to achieve strength and enlightenment of the mind, body, and spirit.

For thousands of years, different people from different cultures have practiced and propagated their own system of martial arts. These unique forms of self-defense and philosophies include the following:
· Karate (empty hand)
· Muay Thai (Thai boxing or kick-boxing)
· Tae Kwon Do (foot hand way)
· Wing Chun (forever spring)
· Silat (to fend off)
· Aikido (the way of harmonious spirit)
· Judo (gentle, soft way)
· Yaw-yan (dance of death)
· Jeet Kune Do (way of the intercepting fist)
· Jiu-jitsu (the soft, pliable method)

Spiritual Benefits

True achievement in martial arts is not gaining the force and skill to smash bricks, cement blocks, baseball bats, and blocks of ice. Neither is it the privilege of wearing different colors of belts nor the prestige of winning sparring championship titles or tournament trophies. The real value of martial arts is in helping individuals harness their natural physical strength and innate goodness of character.
The power within— the elevation of the spirit and the mind. The spiritual side of the martial arts is not religious in any sense but more closely related to the practice of ethics and philosophy. Spirituality in the martial arts is manifested in several training methods and techniques which includes breathing and relaxation drills. According to experts, these drills may help reduce stress and anxiety. Engaging in martial arts also helps people in their battle against emotional, physical, and mental stress and ailments. The deep breathing exercises, similar to the techniques of yoga, produce a calming effect on a martial artist. The inhalation of oxygen and the concentration involved in meditative execution of martial arts routines serve to relax the body and provide “stillness” in the mind during practice. In many martial arts schools, the promotion not only centers of the defensive aspects but also for the benefits of martial arts in coping with anxiety. Long-time martial arts practitioners attest that physical training has helped them deal with depression, insomnia, high blood pressure, and other related illness. To some degree, one can even “shout away” both stress and anxiety during a punching or kicking exercise.

Mental Benefits

Today, martial arts therapy is used as an unconventional treatment for children or adults with social anxiety disorders. Also known as social phobia, this condition refers to excessive, long-lasting anxiety due to various fears, worries and apprehensions. In general, people with social anxiety disorder have an intense fear of being judged or ridiculed by others. People with this condition may often be found in isolation or may only have very few friends. Through martial arts training, people with anxieties may be taught to improve their social skills at the same time as they learn self-defense. These individuals are also taught to develop self-respect and respect for others. By attending self-defense classes, people with anxieties slowly gain confidence and develop healthy relationships with other people in and outside the class. Regular martial arts practice not only provides skills in self-defense. More importantly, it restores or improves the self-image of the practitioner.

Some precautions in practicing martial arts

In general, the martial arts is an excellent means to achieve physical fitness and spiritual health. But if it is practiced carelessly or without proper instruction, the physical activities and routines involved in martial arts training may cause harm or injury. Certain very strenuous movements may put a high stress on the muscles and joints. It is also very important to give special attention to stretching. Stretching regularly to maintain or increase flexibility helps lower the risk of injuries.

Indeed, the martial arts has a deep meaning and philosophy. It is a centuries-old way of training a fighter — how not to fight, which is a paradox in the art and science of combat. These days, it is now one of the most popular means to attain physical health and to control stress and anxiety. But just like everything else in life, martial arts can be used either for good or for bad. For the serious practitioner, determining the proper and safe ways of training is as important as gaining the true, philosophical aims of the martial arts.

The Path To Living Well: Cultivating A Sense Of Spirituality

“Let us first be as simple and well as Nature ourselves.”
~Thoreau, Walden

Have you ever thought: “Wouldn’t it be great to live ‘well’?” Yet, through our often rushed and fully-packed schedules it’s easy to wonder what living well actually means. Is it about living “healthy”? Eating right to support your body? Is it about exercise? Managing stress?

The answer, indeed, is “yes” to all of these. However, before exploring what you can “do” to live well, let’s first take a look at who you are “being.” After all, it’s at the bottom of your being which creates the foundation for a healthy, fulfilling life.

How to decide who you are being? Well, most people already believe in a higher source, a higher power. But for our purposes, we’ll take it one step further. We’ll call this sense of “being” your own personal Nature. And, what’s important for a life of living well, is the connection you make to this inner Nature. The easiest way to do this… Develop your own personal belief system.

Why Develop Your Own Belief System?

If living well involves first establishing a relationship with your inner Nature, let’s also look at a few reasons why you should cultivate this relationship:

• Explains the Unexplainable:

Certain “chance” happenings and connections to other people cannot always be explained by empiric science. How do some people experience “spontaneous healing”? Or, on a smaller scale, why does just the right person “show up” when you need them? Why do the right circumstances come into your life at the precise moment?

For example: just yesterday, I was thinking about a friend of mine from college I hadn’t spoken to in a while—an hour later, she called.

Your inner Nature can give you clues to why all of this is true. Try taking inventory of yourself. Have you ever had a “hunch” or a “feeling” about something and it turned out to be true? I think we all have.

Challenge yourself by recalling all the incidents you can, then jot them down. Be aware of these connections in the future and make note of them.

• Helps You Find Joy in the Present Moment

Did you know that Now is the only moment you have? Realizing the past is behind you and the future is a function of your choices can be empowering; looking at the present moment allows you to take inventory of where you are right now (and who you’d like to be in the future). What, in you life, are you happy with? Dissatisfied with? What in your life, if you could, would you change?

Again, take a quick personal inventory by jotting these things down, then giving thought to each. Becoming aware of where you are right now, will help you set your sights for guided personal development.

• Gives You a Sense of the Larger Picture

How liberating it would be to take charge of your life! Yet, most do not realize, this power is available to all of us. If you begin where you are, you can make small, daily steps toward “being” the person you’d like to be. Why not try right now? Why not just “be” the person you’d like to? Be kind. Be healthy. Be energetic. Be successful.

Check your list again. Who do you desire to “be”? Once you know, then look for ways to “be” it. Do you need to exert more confidence? Build self-esteem? Again, add these notes to your list and spend a few minutes every day thinking about them. I think you’ll find yourself moving into that space quickly.

Take Home Message: Learn to Live in the Flow of Nature.

Perhaps there is something you’re “resisting” that is keeping you unwell or unhappy: are you in a job that is not satisfying? Grappling with an old illness or injury that is holding you back? Be aware of these things as they come to you. Then, take small steps toward change.

Make your aim to move through your pains and fears and be aware of the ways your inner nature provides cues for you. Just like the “accidental” phone call, the new job that may better serve you could also be available. Allow yourself to be open to the possibilities. Practice letting life show you how to live in it’s harmony. Most of all; enjoy the adventure! You are certain to find yourself living a healthier, more rewarding life.

Spirituality Information – John Harricharan ‘s Interview With Terri Marie (Q6)

Spirituality Information – John Harricharan ‘s Interview With Terri Marie (Q6)

Terri Marie: And we all can help each other. I loved your analogy of the book and the pages and time. I — that really made it clear that we could be doing many-many other things with our souls that we’re not aware of in our normal consciousness, and when we go through a different consciousness we can find that. Do you — I know from your best selling “Morning has All Night Been Coming,” but also especially your first one in the series, “When you can walk on water and take the boat.” Right, that you talk about guides, can you talk about the role of guides in our life. Do we all have them? How do we connect with them? Tell me what your feelings are on that John?

John Harricharan: I — if I were to be very — to look at it from an empirical standpoint. I would have to say, that there is absolutely no reason why I should be existing in earth life today, and speaking with you, Vish or anybody else. I should have been gone a long time ago, because there were so many things that occurred that seemed dangerous, that could have ended my life.

There were so many decisions that were made seemingly for me by another part of me or some area that I couldn’t understand that led me into certain things that made me who I’m today. After I look at all of these things, and I did quiet some studies on it, I understood that yes, there are angels, there are other beings, they are what some of us have called energy essence personalities. They could be others we have met in other times, and other places, alternate lifetimes. or they could be some that we have never met in the physical form. And they aren’t there to serve us, but to help us just as we are here to help each other, to help one another get on and grow in life.

And so I do believe, there are invisible forces and beings that guide me and they aren’t there like servants to serve me, but they are there as great friends and they do not interfere in my life except on real emergency situations.

They are there to help me if I ask them and request their help. They cannot interfere in our freewill and our growth either. So we have to request this help and we do many times by going into the silence or through prayer or by getting really quiet and feeling the messages coming from them. And this way being impelled to do the things that would take us in the right directions, they may contact us in dreams. They might do it just through a little incident and I have so many of those, which I will share when we get into the Simplicity site where I will show people how to be aware of this science. How to contact? Or be in contact with the energy essence personalities that are there to help us. And who watch over us and who guide us. Many times we write books, people ask me if my books were channeled.

No, the only channel I deal with, are those on the television. My books were not channeled, but what occurred was I had the feeling that the books were writing me. Now, if you want to call that channeling, that’s fine. I think we can call it anything we want, but what occurred was a part of me stepped aside, the part which was doubt and the part which would say no, this isn’t possible, and the story started to write itself through me. Where did it come from? Well, we need a few days to discuss that.

Should San Diego Schools Students Pray?


The San Diego Schools were put in the national spotlight this past July when it was revealed that Carver Elementary Schools was allowing Muslim students a 15 minute timeframe to pray.
Carver has recently acquired about 100 Muslim students from a San Diego Schools charter school that closed. Even so, this revelation created uproar on the ever popular subject of prayer in school.

There are a few schools of thought on this subject. One camp feels that religion shouldn’t have any place in federally funded education of San Diego Schools. Another side feels that you can allow prayer in school, but it needs to be an equal time scenario. The problem with the San Diego School District trying to account for equal time is part of the problem. It’s a part of the Muslim religion to pray at specific times each day. Unfortunately for some, those times coincide with the San Diego Schools class schedule. On one hand, Carver elementary was being aware of the fact that its population had shifted significantly, and they were trying to be respectful of those student’s religious beliefs. But is it right or fair for the schools day to come to a complete halt to accommodate the needs of a specific religious group?

Actually, the San Diego Schools has done this for decades. The school calendar is set up to allow for vacations that accommodate the Christian religious holidays of Christmas and Easter. Of course, this doesn’t involve stopping school each day. But the San Diego Schools need to come to an awareness that with changing populations come some complicated decisions.

Ideally school and religion need to be separated. With the exception of religious schools that have a mission to provide education a child’s spiritual or religious education, the San Diego Schools would be best served by keeping the two entities separate. Prayer is a quiet and personal act that really doesn’t involve a lot of fanfare. The idea that we have laws either allowing or outlawing prayer is ludicrous. If children in the San Diego Schools want to pray quietly between classes, then it’s now one else’s business. And if some one hears you praying and it offends them- oh well, welcome to life. But classroom time focused on a curriculum of instruction needs to be separate for several reasons.

The students in San Diego Schools need to focus on school when they’re in school. A solid foundation in language, math and science is necessary to form the critical thinking and problem solving skills that children needs to understand the difference between religion, spirituality, and blind faith.

But what about those Muslim students in the San Diego Schools? To prevent them from practicing a principle tenet of their religion seems oppressive. Do the San Diego Schools really want to send a message that the students are unwelcome because of their faith? Assuming that the answer is no, I recommend that Carver Elementary continue to do exactly what they’re doing. Even though I’d love to see a clean dividing line between the school day and worship, it’s not reality. The best thing is for the San Diego Schools to make accommodations that are necessary for the dignity and respect of its students. And in this instance, no one really loses out. That 15 minutes can be used as study time for other students. And if there can be a solutions where everyone wins, let’s take it.

Finding Balance And Health With Yoga

Have you heard about the Gunas? No, they are not Disney characters! According to yoga there are three basic qualities or energies that make up everything. They are, rajas, tamas and sattva.

Rajas is the energy of action, change and movement. Rajas is the fuel of passion and fire. Rajasic energy is also associated with the day light hours. We obviously need rajasic energy to create energy to move successfully throughout our world and lives. When we have too much rajasic energy we might appear to the outside world as extremely busy, go go go, do do do! Does this sound like you? Maintaining a high degree of rajasic energy leads to burn out! When rajas is out of balance the mind and body are overstimulated, the mind becomes restless and you experience a lot of uncontrollable thoughts.

Foods that are rajasic include: spicy food, fried foods, coffee / caffeinated beverages/ stimulants/ fish, eggs, chocolate, foods that are very bitter, sour, dry and salty. Eating in a hurry is also considered rajasic

Tamas can be thought of as the opposite of rajas. Tamasic energy is associated with a state of inactivity and inertia, heaviness and darkness. When tamas is out of balance your ability to reason becomes clouded and you might experience the darker emotions such as anger or greed. Just as there is more rajasic energy present in daylight hours, tamasic energy is present during nighttime. People who are very tamasic might be depressed or appear lazy. Generally speaking disease states are tamasic.

Examples of tamasic food include: meat, alcohol, tobacco, onions, fermented foods – vinegar or strong cheese, stale food or over ripe food, overly processed food or chemically treated. Overeating is considered tamasic.

Sattva is energy that is in a state of harmony and balance. Positive mental and emotional states of joy and intelligence are associated with sattva. A person who was experiencing a lot of sattvic energy would appear very happy. Sattvic energy also is consistent with healing states and in Ayurveda (yoga’s sister science) sattvic energy is actively cultivated. Sattvic energy is most present during the times between light and dark- in other words dusk and dawn. A person on the yogic path is focused on developing sattva and for this reason yoga asana and meditation are classically performed at these times.

Foods that are sattvic include: whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, pure fruit juice, legumes, milk, butter, nuts, seeds, sprouted seeds, honey and herb teas.

It is important to realize that we all have all three gunas within us. And while this is true we tend to have a predominant guna. Based on the descriptions above can you figure out what yours is? It is good to be aware of this because once you are aware of your predominant guna then you can predict how might react to certain life circumstances as well know your strengths and weaknesses. You’ll know when you will tend to be thrown out of balance and what you will need to do to bring yourself back into balance.

You also might have times in our lives when one guna is more active then another. Perhaps you have very active time and very productive (rajasic). Or a period when you have been depressed (tamasic). Or a time when we are very balanced and in tune with your spirituality (satvic).

Another way the gunas show up in our lives and directly effect us is through the food we eat. Consider for a minute the average American diet with overly processed and chemically treated foods which are very tamasic. Modern science now confirms that these food items are directly linked to major illnesses including cancer, obesity, diabetes and heart disease. As mentioned above too much tamasic energy leads to disease states. We also know that foods in their whole form such as grains, fresh fruits and vegetables (sattvic foods) are life sustaining and bring health and energy.

Do you practice yoga postures (asana)? How do the gunas show up here? Is your asana practice fiery and passionate? Was your practice was slow and lazy? Or was it balanced?

It is probably becoming clear to you by now that to be healthy, happy, and live a balance life it is important to cultivate sattva in your life. This can be done by:

Reducing rajas and tamas
Becoming aware of when you are out of balance- which guna seems most present?
Increase activities and environments that produce positive thoughts
Eating a healthy, sattvic oriented diet
Certain herbs (subject for another article)
The practice of yoga: pranayama (breathing practices), asana (postures), meditation

Magic Spells – Do They Really Work?

For thousands of years, civilizations all over the world have relied on their faith in spiritual or mystical powers to accomplish truly amazing feats. Long before modern medicine came on the scene, most health concerns were traditionally handled by applying a dose of spirituality, voodoo, witchcraft, astrology, or psychic power from any number of paranormal sources. One simply couldn’t get through the day without help from the “unseen” world. Of course, that was in the “dark ages” before we were enlightened by the miracles of modern science. But is it wise for people today to scoff at all that seemed to work for so many people, for so long?

In a world where mainstream religion is often mocked, it’s easy to laugh at those believe in the powers of the paranormal, occult, magic, psychic or new age remedies. We often label them as misguided kooks or blind followers of today’s trendy Hollywood scene and counter-culture. But as humans, it is built into our composition to search for truth, and solutions to the many problems we face. And let’s face it, today’s world is filled with day-to-day problems that we strive to overcome… issues dealing with love, money, health, just to name a few. Life is a difficult struggle for millions of people worldwide who seek relief, and solutions to their problems by turning to magic spells. Just go to eBay and do search on love spells or magic spells. You’ll find an endless potpourri of psychics and spell casters who can make your problems disappear, or bring you amazing results for just a few dollars. Think that’s funny? It gets better. When asked, most people who buy these spells will tell you that they really work… and they do.

So how can a love spell performed by a psychic actually attract a soul mate to a lonely person seeking a love partner? Did that money spell really make that struggling secretary get a job promotion and a salary raise? And what about that healing spell that cured my neighbor’s back pain? The unbelievers will likely point to coincidence, some sort of logical explanation, or attribute the results to simply “mind over matter.” But those who believe in psychic powers and the paranormal world think otherwise – there must be a spiritual or metaphysical helping hand involved.

As a self-professed psychic and paranormal expert, who has studied spirituality, psychic phenomena and the art of spell casting, I personally believe that there is much more to this than meets the eye. Most mainstream religions accept the power of prayer as a way to receive blessings, protection and goodness from spiritual sources. Even medical professionals are now recognizing that an individual’s faith and beliefs can play a major role in improving quality of life and health. However, while many doctors will admit that there is some benefit to holistic and alternative medicines, you’ll be pressed to find any who will publicly encourage seeking answers from a psychic or magic spell.

There has always been, and will always be something about the stigma of going to a fortune teller, psychic or spell caster that keeps people from easily accepting their virtues. As an industry, the psychic business has brought on much of this skepticism itself. Shoddy late night television infomercials for psychic readings, con artists or carnival fortune tellers are the images that come to mind for many, when they think of psychics. Just look at how astrology and other psychic-related ads have that tiny disclaimer at the bottom that says “for entertainment purposes only.” It’s about as phony as pro wrestling, right? Well, don’t be too quick to agree.

There are more people than you think who use money or love spells on a regular basis, in an attempt to restore a bad relationship, or gain financial freedom. And these are folks from all walks or life, professions, income levels, religious affiliations and nationalities. Sure, some may rely too much on seeking guidance and help from the psychic world, but most of them are die-hard believers of the occult and would not have it any other way. They will tell you that these spells work for them, their lives have been enriched, and you are the foolish one who doesn’t know what you’re missing.

People always ask me, “Are these spells real? I mean, can they actually make things happen that I can’t do on my own?” If spells can do what they claim they can do (improve love life, attract more money, better luck at gambling) then the answer has to be “Yes.” A spell that does what it is supposed to do has got to be real. Of course, it helps if you have a positive outlook, and believe that the spell can truly help you. But if the spell delivers results, then it has to be real. Believers will tell you that those who refuse to open their minds to the possibilities of magic spells and spiritual solutions will never know what they are missing. Perhaps it is the unbelievers who are experiencing “mind over matter,” only their mindset is narrowly fixed on the opposite end of the belief scale.

Why limit your world to just the few things you can see and touch? After all, what you see isn’t always what you get.

Money Spells – Can They Really Work?

QuantumEnergy

Money troubles? Forget about talking to your banker or financial advisor. More and more people are running to their psychics to see what is happening “behind the scenes” and to learn how the spirit world can help bring money blessings.

Throughout history, civilizations over the world have relied on their religion and faith in spiritual and mystical powers to achieve help with life’s problems. Even before modern medicine came on the scene, most health problems and illnesses were traditionally addressed by applying a dose of spirituality, religion, witchcraft, voodoo, astrology, or psychic power. Back then, you simply could not get through the week without help and guidance from the “unseen” world. Of course, that was long before we became enlightened by the miracles and wonders of modern science.

In the modern world where mainstream religions are often shrugged off or mocked, it is easy for us to laugh at those believe in new age powers of the paranormal, occult, psychic or magical remedies. We see them as misguided kooks or blind followers of today’s counter-culture. But humans today resemble our ancestors in our search for truth, meaning, and solutions to life’s problems. Many of us have experienced being broke, saddled by bills, credit card debt, and feeling hopeless that we can ever get out from under. We know there must be a solution out there when the banks and our friends turn their backs on us. So we look for “help from above” to solve our financial troubles.

When asked, most people who go to psychics and purchase prosperity or money spells will tell you that they really do work.

But did that money spell really make help struggling secretary win the lottery or get a job promotion? The skeptics and unbelievers will point to coincidence, insisting there must be some sort of logical explanation, or attribute results to a case of “mind over matter.” But those who faithfully believe in psychic powers or live by the position or stars and planets think otherwise – there must be a higher power with a helping hand involved.

My perspective is probably different from yours, as I am a professional psychic and paranormal expert. In my studies of spirituality, psychic phenomena and spell casting cases going back thousands of years, I believe there is much more to this than meets the eye. Mainstream religions all seem to accept and profess the power of prayer as a method of receiving blessings from God. Recently, medical professionals now recognize that a patient’s faith and religious beliefs can play a significant role in improving health and quality of life. Many doctors admit that there is a benefit from holistic and alternative medicines. If this is true, why can’t a person’s financial health and wealth be improved by faith in psychic assistance and money spells?

There will always be a stigma of going to a fortune teller, psychic or spell caster that prevents the mainstream from accepting their virtues and value. Let’s come to our senses and stop fooling ourselves. This is all just a money-making scam. It is as fake as the wrestling matches on television, right? Well, don’t be too quick to agree.

You would be surprised at the numbers of people who seek (and claim to receive) help with their money matters thanks to a caring spell caster or psychic. These are individuals from all countries, states, professions, income levels and religious backgrounds. I have clients who are prominent politicians, teachers, doctors, and even scientists. They are believers of paranormal help for all of life’s problems, and nobody can change their minds. They will tell you how much their lives have been improved and enriched, and the unbelievers are the foolish one who don’t know what they are missing.

Can a financial spell bring unexpected money blessings to someone in need? Are these spells for real? Can they actually make things happen that people can’t do on my own? I believe that a spell that has a good track record of doing what it is supposed to do has got to be real. The results speak for themself. People by nature will always doubt, ridicule, and be afriad of what they don’t understand; while the open-minded are willing to take the leap of faith to become blessed. Those who refuse to open their eyes, minds to the possibilities of magic spells and psychic help will never know what they are missing, but will be the first to call you ignorant for asking for help from a higher source. Perhaps it is the unbelievers who ignorant for not even trying. I encourage everyone I meet to remain open-minded, because what you see in this world is not always what you get.

Tantra yoga for the new generation


Yoga is very popular nowadays.
With its various benefits, many are influenced to engage in this form of exercise and meditation. There are so many kinds of Yoga that are known and practiced by many as of today. One if this is Tantra Yoga.

Tantra yoga is more concentrated on the spiritual healing and most of all the integration f the body, mind, and spirit. In India, it is an ancient tradition that sexuality is an important and significant phase to be able to achieve a certain degree of enlightenment.

In Western religious norms, sexual pleasures and desires are not inclined or associated with spirituality. With these differences in traditions, there exists a fine line between their feelings and attitude towards sexuality along with spirituality.

However, in Eastern philosophy, they celebrate and rejoice on the splendor and glory of creation. And later on, they have developed a study or science for understanding how to get most of this therapeutic and wonderful experience. Energy is known and considered to be the source of life in Tantra.

Furthermore, they consider the sexual energy and urge as great and sacred energy. There exists a few of the many exercises that help in the performance on the sexual aspect as well as some dietary adjustments. Some of these physical exercises include contractions, breathing and holding certain positions.

There are so many benefits that can be obtained by performing these various physical exercises. Some of these include improved prostate functioning and enhanced and improved sexual performance. Another benefit is improved sexual stamina when engaging in sexual intercourse.

There are also different kinds of exercises. Aside from the physical exercises, there are psycho-spiritual exercises. These exercises are ways to develop mediation on unconditional love and desire. As a result, this can make sexual activities less anxious and awkward, aside from that, the pressure to perform and move is minimized.

It is said that the most fascinating sexual experience is giving in completely to your partner or lover what he or she really wants. Expectations may be high so one must perform and must do something about it.

Through mediation and proper exercises, one can think of the various ways which he can satisfy his lover. When one is focused and concentrated on giving what your lover really wants is an experience which can strengthen your relationship with each other, moreover, you will receive the satisfaction you had always wanted. There are few exercises which can help you a lot I focusing on your sexual performance.

By repeating some mantras and chants together with breathing exercises and proper meditation, one can achieve these benefits.

There are also numerous ways to take your foreplay to the highest level. With healing massages and gentle stroking, one can receive a rewarding experience that can stimulate both physical and spiritual and healing in different ways.

Reiki or energy channeling healing is practiced before engaging in a sexual activity. This is known to heighten the sexual pleasure in an intercourse. It is an Eastern healing art where-by one partner channels his energy to the other.

Through tactile stimulation, healing is achieved and both the physical and spiritual aspect is enhanced. In this manner, both of you can achieve a deeper state of relaxation and meditation which is very helpful to couples and partnerships.

Improving Mental Health Through Spirituality

Improving Mental Health Through Spirituality

Spirituality is said to be borne out of humanity’s quest for purpose and mission in life. Such is not an easy task as it could mean a quest that can take a lifetime! However, many people have also experienced enrichment in their spirituality even at a young age or right in their middle age. So it’s fair to say that it’s achievable, and it’s just a matter of how one seeks such enlightenment.
But then many would ask: Why must one seek spirituality? Regardless of culture, race, and geographical situation, spirituality is a major influence in a person’s life – in thinking and in how a person lives. It is so powerful that it can affect every facet of a person’s life. It can even affect one’s mental health. You may ask how spirituality improves mental health.
