Healing journey is a phrase that is now being referred to by most of the wellness experts, life coaches and energy healers.
So, how do we start this healing journey!
The first step towards this healing journey is internal cleansing.
The way taking a bath is important, likewise is needed an internal bath for internal cleansing. Most of us, especially Hindus and Sikhs are accustomed with the concept of a holy dip. Many of us take a holy dip in sacred rivers and ponds to get rid of our sins. Also, in order to imbibe in positive energies.
But is that enough for our healing journey?
Internal cleansing is like the holy dip for the soul, your inner self. This process is needed to get rid of hurts and pains, negative emotions and experiences.
This internal cleansing is the first step to release your emotional pains, traumas and fears. Only then you can embark on your journey of internal healing and eventually getting aware of cosmic consciousnesses.
A natural question that pops up!
Many among us must be thinking that doesn’t praying to God heals?
Yeah that heals, but in times of crisis or an extreme depressive phase our strength erodes. Furthermore, it takes a lot of time. Hence, reciting a prayer sometimes may not help. In-fact it may sometime make you feel more victimized? Don’t we many a times start crying while praying? Especially, when we are passing through a bad phase or are depressed.
We cry because we feel helpless and week from within. Here in comes the meditation into play as an immediate saviour. Mediation is known to strengthen us from within, balances our Chakras. When Chakras, the life force wheels get balanced, everything starts falling into place.
So, how do we start the meditative healing journey?

Pranayama techniques prepare the ground for us to initiate the process of inner balancing i.e. of Chakras. It is known to benefit at physical level and also at mental level. It raises your energy level at physical, mental and soul level.
The next step is getting yourself into the experience of sound healing and experiencing the power of mahamantra or universal sound of Aum.
Although, various Mantras are suggested by super meditation gurus. However, the prime focus should be on the initial stages to actually overcome your initial hurts and pains.
Then only you would be able to experience the vibrations of other suggested mantras or sounds.
