Gift of Almighty – Healing in Nature
Nature is the wonderful gift from Almighty to the humankind. Everything in and around is made of various components of nature. Nature creates and nature heals. Yes, encompassing ourselves with the bliss of nature, unwinding in the laps and rhythms of nature, can bring a wonderful transformation to the body, mind and soul.
The environmental psychology proponents insist that spending quality time in and with nature resulted with three major positive effects.
- Reduce Stress
- Improve Mood
- Enhance the Cognitive Performance
Ayurveda, the ancient wisdom and healing tradition of India, recommends a lifestyle that tunes with the nature. Leading a life in accordance to the natural environment around you helps us live in peace, harmony without any trace of disease. It allows us to explore beyond our simple thoughts and helps us connect with the universe. Kids generally have a deep connectivity sense to the environment that manifests in the world of nature.
Healing in nature is all about enhancing the awareness through our five senses which connects with the five elements of the universe.
Vision, touch, smell, sound and taste connect with the fire, earth, air, water and space. The five celestial elements form the base in Ayurvedic healing. This is the point that intertwines nature, healing and ayurveda. In ayurveda it is called Mahabhutas, which allows us to appreciate the lives at its fullest potential.
Lets quote an example from how healing in nature actually does wonders.
Ayurveda recommends the lifestyle from eating to habits based on various seasons, seasonal changes and natural rhythms. It is common sense that we eat warm and hot foods during cold season. We tend to wear layers of clothing, thick and woolen clothes to protect us from the hands of freezing weather. It looks insane when you go wearing thin or light weighted clothes on a snowy day. It makes you fall sick and cause disease. This is natural phenomena. We must tune our habits from eating to sleeping in accordance to the nature.
Awaken your natural healing power with the following simple ways:
Establish a meditation routine: You may never harness the wonderful benefits of meditation until you set a solid routine and practice it for a few days. It calms your mind, reduces your tension, alleviates your ego and makes you feel restful. You can enlighten yourself by enhancing your awareness, gain more consciousness in and outside. At the same time, meditation also offers a lot of physical healing benefits from balancing your blood sugar levels to toning your physique.
Eating the natural fresh produce that grows in your locality is the ideal food you should eat. The environment you grow can produce specific crops, fruits and vegetables which are deemed to be the ideal foods for the people who live in that region.
Look out for spending more time in any natural environment, as stated earlier. Spend at least 15 minutes outdoors. A walk on a grass barefoot can stimulate the nerve channels in the foot which connects with the respective organs.
