11 Relaxation Tips for Tired Bodies and Stressed Minds


Illuminations, is a Dubai-based well-being center offering a variety of different services based on holistic healing, mental well-being and personal growth. 

Our goal is to empower you to detangle from the stressors of daily life and expand beyond your self-imposed limitations to create a happier and healthier life!

We introduce 11 Relaxation tips to destress from tired bodies and stressed minds!
 
1. Sit still and focus on your breathing:

1
 
 
Inhale slowly and deeply for eight seconds, then exhale slowly for eight seconds. Repeat this five or six times. It helps bring more oxygen to the brain.
 
2. Go for a walk around the block:

2

This will help you to breathe more deeply and improves circulation
 
3. Visualize:

3

Breathe deeply and think of a place that gives you comfort: a private beach, a garden, a cozy room.

4. Use Essential Oils:

4

such as lavender, geranium, sandalwood, neroli, and bergamot soothe and relax. Combinations of these oils can be used in either spray, roll-on or diffuser form.

5. Strike a deal with a trusted friend or co-worker to be stress-busting pals:

5
Whine! Bellyache about what's making you feel stressed. Get really dramatic and by the end you may both find yourselves laughing hysterically.
 
6. Divide a piece of paper into two parts:

6
On the right side, list the stressors you may be able to change, and on the left, list the ones you can’t. Change what you can, and stop fretting over what you can’t.

7. Be clear about your limits, and stop trying to please everyone all the time:

7
Trying to do everything is a one-way ticket to serious stress.
 
8. Stretching loosens muscles and encourages deep breathing, which in turn helps you to relax:

8
Muscles tighten during the course of the day, and when we feel stressed out, the process accelerates.

9. Soaking in a tub full of warm water can work wonders when you're feeling stressed:

9
The warm water relaxes you physically, loosening tight, stiff muscles. And, as a result, you relax mentally as well. Add some aromatic oils and some bath salts and your set.

10. It's a proven fact that soothing music can be relaxing:

10
The type of music you choose is entirely up to you. Buy a CD featuring soft, modern ballads, gentle classics, smooth jazz, or Nature inspired music. When you feel stressed, pop the music into the player and let the music carry you away.

11. Meditate:

11
focusing the mind on a word, phrase, or idea and letting go of other thoughts with an attitude of passive acceptance for relaxation or making positive changes.

How Are Yoga and Meditation Related?


1_copy1

Yoga is defined as the union of the mind, body and spirit, and hence the practice of yoga is a spiritual, mental and physical discipline. Many people associate Yoga as an exercise, however it is much more than that. Yoga is a way of life involving body postures, controlled styles of breathing and stillness of mind, in order to achieve a relaxed body, calm mind, along with several other scientifically proven health benefits.

Meditation is part of the mental yoga practice and one key element of Yoga, in order to achieve higher states of mental awareness and relaxation. A Yoga practice is rarely complete without the practice of meditation.

While our energies are focussed to do asanas (poses) in specific way, in that moment nothing goes in our mind- we are focussed and engaged. That’s what we also do in meditation. We focus our mind on our breath. The idea is to bring our mind to one state that is focussed. When all other thoughts stop and we experience a unity of mind, body and spirit.

In that way yoga and meditation are bringing us closer to the same state- that is oneness.
Yoga consists of eight fold path. To achieve nirvana – ultimate freedom, a yogi walks on this path.
1. Yamas (Don’ts or Restraints)
2. Niyamas (Do’s or Observances)
3. Asanas (Exercises and poses)
4. Pranayamas (Breathing exercises and techniques)
5. Pratyahara (Control of the senses)
6. Dharana (Concentration)
7. Dhyana (Meditation) and
8. Samadhi (A super-conscious state)

2_copy1

Meditation is an important state to achieveSamadhi- or union with divine. Buddha achieved Samadhi while he was sitting in lotus pose or padmasan and meditating.

Inorder to achieve a goodmind body connect we need to communicate at the level of both mind and body. The principle of yoga, the asanas or poses along with meditation and a yogic lifestyle has answers to our existential questions. We just need to be as true to our selves and our bodies as we can.

How Meditation Impacts Brain?


1_copy

Millions of people practice meditation. The techniques of meditating may vary but the purpose remains same- peace, love, joy, healing, tranquillity, spiritual growth. Because of its popularity a lot of research is being conducted to study the impact of meditation on our bodies, specifically our brain. Sara Lazar is a neuroscientist at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. She researched how meditation impacts our brain. The results of her study surprised her along with other researchers.


They did a comparative study on long term meditators and people who don’t meditate and compared their brains scans.

3_copy


First thing noticeable was that the grey matter in the insula, sensory regions and frontal cortex was higher in meditators which means their senses were very sharp, memory and decision making skills better compared to non-meditators.in fact the size of cortex and its grey matter in 50 year old meditators was equivalent to as much as a 25 year old would have whereas we all know that our cortex shrinks and grey matter reduces with age as well. Overall the research identified significant brain regions to be more active, less stressed, calm, better memory and executive functions and aging to be slower. It also showed dense grey matter in regions of hippocampus, an area of brain associated with learning and memory, as well as in other areas associated with self-awareness, compassion, and reflection.


There are many other researches being conducted on the impact of
meditation on physical body.

We can safely say that meditation helps in reduced stress levels, better work- life balance, improved emotions, and better quality of life. Improved connection with self and others, deeper understanding of life. Meditation is a safe remedy for stressed based issues according tocardiologist Herbert Benson, MD, founder of the Mind/Body Institute at Harvard Medical School's Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

4
Meditation brings about a state of relaxation which in turn helps decrease metabolism, lowers blood pressure, and improves heart rate, breathing, and brain waves. Other researches shows that meditation produces long-lasting changes in the brain activity in areas involved in attention, working memory, learning, and conscious perception. There are many types of meditation practices available but the foundation of each one stays the same- focussing on breath, calming the mind and body and going into a deep sense of relaxation. Through entering this state of relaxation we can achieve many beautiful things inside and outside us. Let’s all venture into this beautiful area of meditation and find outwhich type of meditation suits us.

How to Cope with Panic Disorder?

1

Sandy was diagnosed with panic disorder. When she came to me she reported feeling extremely scared to leave her house with the fear of getting an asthmatic attack. She had completely stopped going out alone and being a doctor by profession it was becoming increasingly difficult for her to commit to her hectic schedules. Her therapy included counselling, hypnotherapy, reiki and meditation techniques. It took us 7 sessions and she was relieved of her panic disorder but surprisingly she was also healed of asthma. She continued using the meditation technique which I taught her and she was able to heal her asthma by herself with that.

Panic disorder, fears & phobias comes under the psychological diagnosis of anxiety disorders. The common symptoms of these are presence of a fear which is becoming unmanageable. A standard treatment plan would include counselling and relaxation techniques which are taught to a person over the course of therapy. In addition, techniques like hypnotherapy and other energy based approaches helps to fasten the healing process.

When a person comes to a therapist with symptoms of anxiety disorder, they project a lot of fear and doubts in the therapeutic process. Feelings of discomfort surfaces as they realise they might have to face their fears eventually as a part of healing. But when you do face your fears slowly, step by step, you start feeling comfortable and realise you are free eventually.

2

Acknowledging your issue is the first step you take to free yourself, seeking a therapist being the second step.

Some practical steps that you can take in event of panic symptoms are mentally affirming the word “Relax” to yourself. Stretch your arms as if yawning deeply which is a state of relaxing. Some deep breathing in and breathing out from your mouth also helps. Technically you have to trick your mind that you are relaxed which is an opposite state of panic and anxiety. Meditation is also an amazing approach as the more stress free you get the better chances of you healing out of the anxiety issues. Until you seek a therapist to resolve the issue completely, you can try these techniques

Depression: What You Need to Know


d-1

Depression is one of the less discussed but rather serious issue in present day’s scenario. Ever felt you have to force yourself out of your bed every morning and do things that no longer interest you. Feeling that you have to put up a smiling face and face the world when inside all you want to do is scream or stay alone in your room.

If you are feeling sadness more frequently and very little things truly makes you happy then talking about this to a therapist is a good idea right now. Depression on the surface looks to be a simple mood issue but it’s like a demon which if left unattended consumes every bit of sunshine from your mind and you feel enveloped in a blanket of sadness.


d-2
Depression can affect people at any age group. From kids who are 8 years old to teenagers, adults, older adults, it can affect anyone regardless of age and gender. For some people the cause of depression is known while for a lot others even the cause is unknown to them.

Depression requires professional therapy from a therapist and also social support. Some people would recover from depression sooner than others. Everyone comes with a unique story and that’s why the approach how we heal them varies.


d-3

In my experience of working with depression, I witnessed old traumas surfacing which once healed, helped people move on and start feeling happier again. Some people had to free themselves of unresolved guilt and regrets, while others had to free themselves of a long unresolved grief. As every person comes with a different story, every therapy approach changes to identify, explore and heal them.
The job of a therapist is to support the person who is seeking their help and eventually empower them enough for them to be on their own with…

d-4

How the Planets Influence Our Personality



blog-img1
 


Every planet in the solar system and beyond, has its own consciousness. When I say consciousness I mean – energy signature that is distinctly its own. For example Saturn is or exudes the consciousness of determination, hard work, perseverance, fear and treachery.

Now you may ask how it is possible to be the energy of perseverance and also of fear. The answer to that is that both perseverance and fear are of the same energetic essence, vibrating at different frequencies. When one succumbs to circumstances, it creates fear… when one confronts circumstances, it creates perseverance.

Similarly every planet has its own energetic essence. Mercury is the consciousness of curiosity, intelligence, innocence, confusion and communication. Venus is the consciousness of relationships, Mars is the ability to act in the moment, passion, restlessness and enthusiasm. Jupiter is the energy of righteousness, dogma, hope and wisdom. Moon is feeling consciousness and Sun is soul power.

What is important to understand here is that all these planetary energies exist within each and every one of us because simply put, we are star dust in motion. Whatever is out there in the cosmos is also in here within each and every one of us. The planets come alive through the conscious human being.

Consciousness is expressed through the feelings and emotions experienced by us through our awareness. The more we grow, the more aware we are of our own highest potential, the more we vibrate from the higher frequencies of the planetary forces within us and then the consciousness of Saturn moves from fear to determination, Mercury moves from confusion to intelligence, Mars from restlessness to passion, Venus from insecurity to freedom in relationships etc.


blog-img2

It is important to understand that the planets and stars – what we refer to as Nakshatras in Vedic Astrology, are all living beings or intelligent forces of consciousness that are transforming and evolving through us. When I say this I mean the human race. Every planet and every Nakshatra (there are 27 that are featured in Vedic Astrology) in your chart, create the story of your life – a platform from where you can grow and explore your highest potential. When you understand these energies within your chart and hence within yourself you are able to live your life more fully… you are able to fulfill your purpose.

The ultimate purpose for all the galactic energies is to evolve and therefore that is our ultimate purpose too. Every day is a chance of evolution – to resolve our karma or simply to understand the energies that are holding us back and then to grow in the direction of the light or wisdom or understanding of our full, enlightened potential. And everyone has this opportunity – ultimately it’s all about how much effort you make in your life journey to work with this galactic consciousness that is your CHOICE.

You are everything and everything is you. The galactic energies work though each and every one of us because, through our awareness, collectively we are creating tomorrow. What does your tomorrow look like?

Ruchi Khanna is a keen student of human behavior and the deep psychological patterns that create life. Her studies as a Master Hypnotist have taught her the intricacies of why and how people land into challenging situations and also about how one can overcome these.
Ruchi was brought up in India with a very close association with astrology because of her family who frequently consulted astrologers for various issues. However she herself was a skeptic as nobody was able to explain the science behind astrology to her and it all seemed like fear based mumbo jumbo.

Being intuitive since childhood, Ruchi naturally deviated towards holistic healing modalities as a young adult and it was a spiritual experience that she had in her pregnancy that led her to explore the metaphysical world.

The universe conspired to bring her to her karmic path and at 29, with the return of Saturn in her birth chart her life dramatically shifted. With difficulty, Ruchi started treading upon what she now knows to be her life path.

She initially studied Vedic Astrology simply to dispel the fear behind the dreadful return of Saturn but later found so much truth and wisdom in the birth chart. It became so much easier for her to understand her unique life journey – with complete gratitude and acceptance and it is this wisdom that she desires to share with her clients.

Her understanding of the human mind combined with the wisdom of the stars and the karma they unfold will allow her clients to see their soul path clearly. They will be able to better understand their own unique journey and get the best from their life. Ruchi also prescribes various remedies and councils her clients into understanding the ‘why’s’ of what they are going through in their life because ultimately the purpose of life is to shine.

Your soul plan is your map to joy and her mission is to be able to make people embrace who they are and what they are here to do.

Stop Being Selfish - Live Your Purpose!


Have you ever had that nagging feeling that you are supposed to be doing something else? Something that is only you can do? And have you ever then, doubted yourself for having had this feeling... rubbished it by reminding yourself that you were just another ordinary person who had no business thinking about being special in any way?

                             
Well if the above is true for you then let me tell you:

                           Selfish

Selfish? You may ask and my answer to you is yes again – STOP BEING SELFISH.

Each one of us is a unique spark of creation, special, perfect and complete. In the journey of our life, it is our job to simply find our own authenticity and then unabashedly live it. Expressing our TRUTH is our life purpose and we each express our truth in different ways.
               Pic-1

It is through the expression of our uniqueness that The Universe/God expresses itself and this expression of our truth is always beneficial to mankind.

Let me elaborate just to confuse you further…

When you experience any kind of difficulty in your life, it solely exists to stir you in the direction of your truth so that through that seemingly difficult situation, you are able to blossom and bloom into the purest version of yourself. Karma is the teacher who knows your potential and will nudge you through lifetimes to help you to shine. Sometimes well, oftentimes this nudging can feel like a punishment, like a wormhole through which there seems to be no way out and then people seek therapy to forgive, to release, to accept and this is all ok – in fact it is great to be able to understand your story as it will help you to get in touch with your truth. But I must say that getting lost in your story is futile and sometimes even detrimental to your progress because ultimately we as human beings are givers, here to give and express. It is through the authentic giving of ourselves that we can find lasting joy and contentment.
          pic-2

So if you are reading this then maybe it’s time to think. Rise above your story because your story is just that – a story. What is real is you – you are here to do something unique, special and authentic. The truth my dear friend is that the world needs you to live your divine life purpose. It is time for you to wake up and smell the aroma of your highest potential. Investigate into your authenticity.

I often encourage people to explore Astrology, not because it can be used to predict the future – NO because nobody can do that, but because Astrology is a great way to meet your true self. It is like looking at a metaphysical photograph of yourself and a photograph does not lie. You may not like what you see, but the photo will show you the truth. Your birth chart is the divine blueprint of what you intended to express is life journey. Everything charted out to help you to express your truth and highest potential not through fear but through love. The hardships the joys, the highs and the lows, all to help you to come into your authenticity and live your purpose.

Take that step forward and meet yourself… you are special important and worth it!!

2016 – The Year of the Fire Monkey


The Year of the Wood Goat is slowly coming to an end and on February 4, 2016 we will be entering the Year of the Fire Monkey.


YearofMonkey

In the Chinese calendar system, this particular year will be dominated by two elements: Fire and Metal. According to the cycle of birth and destruction, which is one of the cornerstones of Chinese Metaphysics and everything related to Feng Shui, Fire is in direct clash with Metal, as it has the ability to destroy (“melt”) Metal. This indicates a year of disharmony and somewhat explosive tempers. However, due to the playful and very straightforward nature of the Monkey, arguments and conflicts tend to be resolved rather quickly and compromises abound.

The Monkey is the clash animal for the Tiger. So, while those of us born in the year of the Monkey will have a great year ahead, full of life-changing opportunities, Tiger people might want to tread lightly and just go with the flow this year. Especially those Tiger people who like to engage in sports are more prone to sport injuries and accidents than others. Tiger and Monkey are both so-called Traveling Stars, and together they form a “Horse Carriage Clash” – an indication for a higher risk of traffic and road-related accidents.

In terms of health, a Fire-Metal clash is often an indicator for respiratory issues, gastric and intestinal problems, as well as illnesses involving the prostate.

When it comes to the Feng Shui of your residence or office, the Year of the Monkey will bring particular challenges to the Northeast sector, where the #5 Yellow Calamity Star takes residence. Generally regarded as a rather negative Star, the #5 Yellow finds itself in a very rare combination this year, which enhances its harmful energies. If you happen to have your bedroom or study/desk in the Northeast, it would be highly advisable to move away from this sector of the house (until February 3, 2017). It would be safest to keep this area of your home or business as undisturbed and quiet as possible.

The Wealth sectors for the Year of the Monkey reside in the Southwest, East and Southeast. To take full advantage of the favorable energies residing in these sectors, either sleep or work there. Alternatively, try to spend as much time as possible in these areas of your residence or office, to keep the energies active.
