Healing through the Magical Water

Today, there is no guarantee that the food, medicine, or even water that you drink is healthy enough. But we see that children happily survive in slums, whereas some die with strange, inexplicable phenomena like sudden infant death syndrome. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sudden_infant_death_syndrome 

Ayurveda and all ancient medical sciences believe that the mind plays a huge role in health. A balanced mind can maintain a perpetual state of perfect health. Similarly, the mind can change or improve the effectiveness of the food we eat or the water we drink. 

In ancient India, rishis or sages used to keep just a camandal or a unique jug to carry water. It is believed that they had the power to infuse magical qualities in water and survive only on that. 

Ancient Chinese monks practiced the art of bigu. Bigu is a state of complete abstinence from food and water. It is a state of perfect physical sustenance without any gross energy supplement from outside. Imagine a person who does not need to eat or drink anything! But they also achieved the final state of bigu through the use of some herbs and unique magical water. I believe that they prepared this magical water through the power of meditation. https://sites.google.com/site/delawareteasociety/yoked-to-earth-a-treatise-on-corpse-demons-and-bigu

I believe that magic water heals the higher layers of existence and therefore, its effect is immediate and magical. If done properly, it might cure the most impossible disorders immediately.

Daiv vyapashraya

Ayurveda has 3 branches of healing. The most effective and yet the least known is Daiv vyapashraya. The word Daiv means divinity and vyapashraya signifies “to take shelter in” or to apply. The magic water treatment is a past of Daiv vrapashraya chikitsa.

Ayurveda believes that the divine energy that runs our body can be directly contacted. And we can resolve our physical problems through ensuring an unhindered flow of this energy.

According to Charak Samhita, following methods are prescribed for Daiv vyapashraya.

  • 1. Mantra (Hymns)
  • 2. Aushadha (Amulets, Talisman)
  • 3. Mani (Wearing of gems)
  • 4. Mangala (Auspicious ceremony)
  • 5. Bali (Offering to god)
  • 6. Upahara (Gift)
  • 7. Homa(Oblations)
  • 8. Niyamana (Observance of scriptural rules)
  • 9. Prayascita (Atonement)
  • 10. Upavasa (Fasting)
  • 11. Svastyayana (Chanting of auspicious, Hymns)
  • 12. Pranipata (Observance to the god)
  • 13. Gamana (Going to pilgrimage)

The modern field of energy medicine is a part of this vast science. And it is growing very rapidly

Ancient civilizations like Inka, Mayans, Polynasian tribes extensively and effectively practiced mantra healing. We can still find mantra healers in African tribes. Shamanism practiced in native American Tribes is a form of Daiv vyapashraya.

Science Behind The Magic Water

And all this appears real instantly when we look at two mind-boggling scientific experiments – 

Water Memory Experiment

This experiment slows that water exposed to different forms of music and environment.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_memory. Besides, this experiment has been repeated many times by different people with consistent results! So water remembers what happens. Probably, the belief that rivers like Ganga, Yamuna, or Narmada are scared is not a myth after all. Testing of Ganga water done in 1856 by a British scientist led to surprising results – https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3225782/

A list of other experiments on Ganga water can be found here – https://www.facebook.com/scientific.vedas/posts/323655977821455. The bottom line is that water can retain the effects of meditation, prayer, and environmental vibrations. 

Moong Sprouts Experiment

In Moong sprouts experiments conducted by heartfulness meditation center, the moong seeds were sprouted in two different conditions – the researchers placed some soaked seed in the meditation room and others in a room with TV and wifi radiations. After a few days, the moong sprouts exposed to Bluetooth, Tv, and wifi turned yellow and died. Whereas, the moong sprouts grown in the meditation room multiplied rapidly and were lush green.

You can also try this experiment at your own home and see the difference!

Double Slit Experiment

this experiment is utterly amazing in the sense that it reflects that the matter might also possess a mind of its own and that we can influence the particle behavior with our mind!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double-slit_experiment

So, matter works as the mind directs, consciously, or unconsciously. The great law of attraction also points towards the same thing. Here are some interesting reads regarding the relation of Ayurveda with the law of attraction.

Healing through Magical Water

I learned the method of making healing water through Heartfulness meditation. The book “the heartfulness way” And the procedure is really simple. 

  • Fill a bowl with water. 
  • Close your eyes and meditate on it for 30 minutes with the feeling that this water should heal anyone who consumes it. 
  • Give it to the person concerned. 

This remedy helps in the case of physical and mental disorders equally. And it is completely worth trying. The priceless things in the world are free – whether it is air or water, even food. Nature doesn’t charge for anything. Similarly, if you have faith, medical treatment is also free!

Hope that this information reaches everyone in need!

General Ayurveda Dietary Plan

According to the ethics of Ayurveda, a Vaidya(Ayurveda physician) should not charge for medical advice but only for medicines. I personally believe that no sick person should be forced to pay for medical advice. If you opt for free consultation, please go through the following steps –

REMOVE THE CAUSE

According to Ayurveda, without removing the root cause of the diseases, you can never reach a permanent cure. Most of the time wrong diet, lifestyle habits and stress is the cause.

Here are some steps that can help you to remove most of the root causes. I request you to implement the advice given in the free resource as a first step towards Ayurvedic treatment. More than 80% of your health problems will disappear once the recommended Ayurvedic daily and seasonal routine is already in place.

In some places, I have recommended fruits, ghee and organic food. However, even if you are not able to afford them, it is perfectly fine. Please practice mindful eating in whatever you eat, because energy that comes from vigyanamaya kosha (seat of wisdom) or anandamaya kosha (seat of bliss) is what keeps us alive and you can be healthy without any fancy food.

In fact, not eating can make you healthier. Fasting has most amazing benefits, including cancer prevention.

Correct The Diet

  1. Try to eat only when hungry, unless you are very weak, or thin. This is a crucial advice for patients of all lifestyle disorders like diabetes, hypertension etc. For detailed explanation –
    1. How much you need to eat
    2. Eat Healthy, Eat Less
  2. Fast at least once a week.

Ushapaan : Daily Ayurvedic Water Detox for beginners

Ushapaan is a very interesting concept. Water, when consumed, does not stimulate the digestive process and most of the time it is not digested, it is only detoxified. Most of the detoxification happens in the liver after water absorption. Therefore, when we drink an extra amount of water (for example – more than 1 lit at a time), this water rapidly gushes through the intestines like a flush, without being held-up for digestion.  

Intestine is like a carpet with the fine brush like structures called villi. villi help to increase the surface area of the intestine. Villi are made from small folds in the intestine. In this way, intestine acts as stretchable jeans that where villi provide the required stretch whenever we overstuff over stomach with food. But the problem occurs when food is stuck in the middle of these villi. Let us take the example of the concealed drainage pipes in the plumbing system of a building. They never get cleaned and one can imagine the level of cleanliness that can be found in them!  

 Normally, continuous splashes of mucus try to maintain the cleanliness of the intestines. But with the current dietary habits of haphazard eating, it becomes extremely difficult for the body to maintain the desired level of internal hygiene. And this decay of food particles trapped in the intestines contribute to the toxins in the body, mentioned in Ayurveda as “ama”.  

 Water is the best purifier that cleans an object (fire is the ultimate purifier, which eliminates the object and reduces it to the basic structure, fit for reconstruction). We can use water to clean our intestines just the way we use to clean our kitchen sink. When we drink a large amount of water, it rushes through the intestines. This force of water helps to clean the food stuck and decaying in the intestinal folds. So, the first point is to drink a huge and comfortable amount of water in order to ensure a cleaning effect on the intestines.  

 Now, there is a lot of information around water cleansing and its method. Many people suggest that one should stand and drink water as the gravitational pull helps the water to move with greater momentum inside the Intestines and clears away the wanted material. However, Ayurveda strongly recommends that one should always drink or eat anything only in a sitting position. The hypothesis behind this suggests that when water enters the Intestines while the person is in standing position, the rapid gush of water or food can damage the soft internal lining or remove the protective mucosal layer in the Intestines. Besides, in the long term, it can result in many disorders like an abdominal pouch, hernia, etc. Therefore it is important to drink water in a sitting position only.  

Another important factor is the temperature of the water. But the temperature is a factor of the time of water consumption. On a sunny day, one can drink normal water. However, it is always advisable to drink Luke warm water, something compatible with the internal temperature of the body. Chilled water is an absolute no-no for water detox. Lukewarm water helps to dissolve excess mucus and remove the food stuck in it.

 Time of the water detox is the most important of all factors. The temperature, amount and the effect of water are entirely dependent on the time of consumption. Here we finally the concept of Ushapaan dawns on us. The term “Usha” means Dawn or the time of sunrise. The term “paan” means to drink. This Usha or dawn is the best time for water detox. The time before Ushakaal is said to be “Brahma muhurta”. The term “Brahma” refers to the creator. This is the time when all the dosha in the body is normally balanced. The slate of body’s metabolism is clean. According to Ayurveda, this is the best time to induce any changes, take medicines, meditate, etc. The water detox should be done before or just at the time of dawn. This water is better able to clean as there is no digestive process going on in the Intestines early in the morning. Ideally, ushakaal is 4–6 am in the morning. And this is the time for Ushapaan.    

 Besides, the best benefit is that Ushapaan ensures that intestines are clean early morning, ready to take new food challenge for the day. The new food does not mingle with the old decaying food particles. Ushapaan also ensures good quality hunger. Good hunger is the indication of a healthy metabolism.    

 Besides, Ushapaan with normal or cool water during the dawn stimulates the nerve endings in the intestines. This stimulation reaches the brain and it helps in an early adjustment of temperature, before the sunrise. Waking up in Brahmamuhurat also has a similar effect.    

  After sunrise, temperature regulation depends more on the water absorbed from the intestines. This process can dry and harden the fecal matter and cause constipation. Ushapaan also hydrates the body before the sunrise so that as the temperature regulation shifts towards the sweating mode after sunrise, there is no scarcity of water in the outer layers of the body. Because of enough moisture, there is no metabolic prompt to extract more and more moisture from the fecal matter. In fact, Ushapaan can remove the fecal matter before the sunrise. Thus there is no extra heat load on the body after sunrise.    

 Therefore Ushapaan is the second most important lifestyle factor that can prevent and cure all kinds of constipations. For first factor visit the next blog.    

 For chronic constipation, it is advisable to drink warm water. Chronic constipation occurs in all kinds of people. However, vata dominant prakrati people get such type of constipation more frequently. Besides, they have more tendency to form very hard stool.    

 These are some of the limited benefits of Ushapaan. However, in short, we can safely say that it positively touches the entire body. It provides fluid for the internal bath of the body. It is very important as Saint Kabir said – What is the use of external purification is there is no internal cleanliness?   

 Ushapaan was induced as a religious ceremony in Vedic Hindu community. This is the reason why it was preserved and followed for a long time, even by people who no longer understood its essence or health benefits. Now it is time for us to reinvent this ancient ceremony and practice it religiously!  

An advanced level of ushapaan is drinking the water through nose. I will elaborate more on it very soon.

 Hope this helps all in need!
