When our ancestors were faced with danger, nature programmed them for 2 possibilities - either the problem was surmountable, which meant energising the body to fight the enemy, or the problem was too big, which meant energizing the body to run. Both options would immediate de-prioritise the digestive process, which is why some people can end up throwing out digested or undigested food or water through vomiting or passing urine or stools during stress. Also, now we have different challenges - we don't need to physically run towards or away from our boss or in laws, but the hormones are still released and can affect our health. Here's how.
After the intensity of the fight or flight response, the body 'crashes' in energy and the focus is on getting back to normal. Since as a society we are focused on consistent performance, these phases are shunned and the body is never given time to recover. We then offer the body a new stressor, and over time we get addicted to functioning on that artificial 'high' of the stress hormones.
Persistent stress due to difficulties in health, relationships and jobs will damage the digestive system over a long time and this creates a lot of secondary problems. Here are the signs I've frequently seen among my clients.
Because people have gotten used to functioning only on the energy provided by stress hormones, most people experiencing chronic stress are rarely self-motivated, functioning only when things go too far or a deadline is looming. When the 'danger' of a missed deadline floods their system with stress hormones, they are finally able to function. So they fluctuate between super-charged when the hormones are pumping through the system or 'lazy' and exhausted.
Due to the lack of energy the rest of the times, there can often be this feeling of spacing out from the world, some people may use binge-watching, binge eating or addictive substances as tools for this escape.
Most people will end up either feeling too hungry or not hungry enough as the digestive process is affected. Sleep can change as well, crashing out when exhausted and difficulty sleeping or shallow sleep otherwise. People living in situations where the body doesn't feel safe for whatever reason (abusive relationships for eg) can wake up at every little disturbance.
And one of the most telling signs I observe is the person's sensitivity to sound. When people are greatly affected by noise, this is very frequently a sign of the body being in a state of constant alarm.
Some people can experience these things after a specific incident, like a breakup or the death of a loved one or even the sudden loss of a job. In these cases, some good therapy can help the body get back to a state of ease and wellbeing. In cases where people are stuck in abusive relationships or workplaces, a lot more work is needed.
In either case, if you experience these please pay attention, because it doesn't take long before this becomes physical, causing issues like headaches, chronic fatigue or pain, brain fog, palpitations, IBS, anxiety and the hardest one - auto immune disorders.
If you have any of the signs above do consider therapy to identify and resolve the conflict
please watch out for these signs in your child as well. We don't need early interventions, no. We need parents who are working on themselves. Children model themselves after parents, and if parents are sorted, then they know better how to deal with children. This can change at any moment, but the core lesson is merely this - what do we value?
As a society we spend hours and hours earning money, that is a priority. Everything else is now secondary, that's the core issue. Spending 2% of our time on something that can improve our health, mind and relationships is too much of a burden. When we learn to prioritise the right things, our children follow suit, it really is that simple. Takes a few weeks or a few months, rarely ever more than that. Nature has designed children to biologically mimic parents.
We call them Reiki children, where parents practice Reiki from before conception or from the time the child is born or very young. It changes everything, the kids are very special. Even at this stage it isn't late for you. But the question is only - is it important enough yet?

Healing tip by Dr.Disha Ghosal
World over conflicts and fights are increasing. Unrest in the cities are on a rise. People are deviating from the path of peace and love. Our practitioner Dr Disha Ghosal believes that as healers we should come together and do our bit in healing the imbalances. Help calm the mob fury and bring about peace and harmony. Here is a message to all the healers and meditators to get together and use their gifts to heal the mobs of unrest and maintain the balance of peace and love.
Distance healing method OR Visualization technique for Meditators
1) Grounding: most of the healers have their personal kind of grounding technique like tree visualization, water flow visualization.
This grounding is very important because the energy that’s given to the Universe is at a high speed.
2)Affirmations that can be used
a)For highest good
b)Affirmation for people to take ownership for their actions and bring clarity in thoughts and actions
c)Heal Mother Earth
3) Post-healing does a gratitudinal prayer is necessary.Thanking Mother Earth, parents, teachers , self and anyone you feel connected to.
4) Frequency : I am personally sending healing every 15 minutes for 3 minutes each. Since MOB’s are dynamic and their energy keeps fluctuating, the frequency is the key to keeping the balance.
Please Note :
1) No footwear while healing
2) Stop sending healing if u feel giddy, nausea, emotionally drained, mentally uncomfortable. This clearly shows that your grounding isn’t enough. Please reground if need be.
3) MOB mentality is fear based, Do remember : where fear exists love is disconnected. All healings should be love based.
“Don’t shout, this is a classroom, not your house”, “You are a boy, you cannot cry”. “You are supposed to sit with your legs crossed”, “You are grown up, you cannot laugh like this, it is not done.”
Remember the opening scene of 3 idiots, the above sentences are our versions of what each one of us go through since the day we are born. And then we are guilty of saying the same things to our kids. We live in a society where we are taught to suppress our inner child and behave in a certain way as that is what is expected by the society. As a result though physically we may grow to become adults, emotionally and psychologically we never reach adulthood. Somewhere inside we still crave to be children and “want another chance to grow up”
At every age we want to feel and be told that we are loved unconditionally and are lovable. Many a times these needs are not met, and this leads to many insecurities, fears, belief’s about ourselves and the world which creates life and health challenges.
A lot of these challenges can be solved by “Inner Child Therapy” which is given at the subconscious level, since it is innocent as a child. This therapy helps the person look at thinks in a different perspective and it eventually changes the thought process and has a positive impact on the health and life challenges. Whatever the conscious mind thinks or does gets imprinted in the subconscious level. Hence it is important to rectify the issue from the subconscious level and this can be done by the Inner Child Therapy.
The first comprehensive method of reparenting the Inner Child in therapy was originated by Art Therapist, Dr. Lucia Capacchione, in 1976.
In the Indian context, we go back to the story of Krishna and Subhadra, how Abhimanyu learnt the technique of breaking the Chakravyūha while he was in his mother’s womb. The journey begins at the womb stage and the fetus can understand mother’s pain and problems. Hence it is often said that whatever a mother to be experiences in her pregnancy has an impact on the baby’s personality.
Some areas, where this therapy is helpful,
Inner Child has origins in India from yogis, but now has become popular all across. Inner Child is a study of past (childhood) experience of a client, here we give more importance to know how was the mothers experience before and after the birth of baby. This problem can be also related to her past life experience. The sessions can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on the issue and how receptive the client is.
This should be done under a trained healer, he or she should have the knowledge and experience to analyse the problem and treat accordingly.
We have multiple healers who do Inner Child Healing session online, if you feel there is something blocking you from moving forward, try a session.
