The vedic system is a yogic system that addresses the total human being as a reflection of the universe.
“Vedic counseling derives from a wise yogic philosophy, psychology, and cosmology that teach us how to be in that higher state of being.” ~ David Frawley
In order to achieve optimal psychological well-being, we must understand how the mind works. Our mind is wired for safety and comfort. It is important to develop a higher mind by learning to let go of negative emotions and compulsions and living intensely in the present moment through the development of skills that bring relaxation and emotional balance.
Vedic laws of psychological well-being.
1. Develop Your Power of Attention
You create your own reality. You attract what you think of most. Whatever you give your attention to can control you. Select wisely where you put your thoughts and attention.
2. Learn the Art of Right Intention
Consciously promote your higher values and goals in life, letting go of what is not relevant.
3. Develop the Ability to Concentrate and Focus
Use your mind like a focused light to examine what you need to know and let go of what doesn't serve you.
4. Learn to Harness the Power of the Mind
Unleash your creative powers! Let your mind release its creative and perceptual powers for the benefit of all.
