We have been trained to disconnect our thoughts and emotions. But our mind and our emotions are with us 24/7, 365 days, every minute, every second of the day. We rarely think about the fundamental relationship to the mind.
When we can master and command the mind, we can enjoy life with abundance.

Whosoever controls the mind, controls the entire psyche of the universe.
Is responsible for all our troubles – success and failure.

The mind can use imagination for creation and destruction

The five elements - (earth, water, fire, either and air) are present in our body. These elements change with the external environment, e.g, in autumn and spring, our body begins to change to welcome summer and winter.
The elements are waves of frequency. These waves of energy create balance and imbalance in our body - physical, mental, and emotional.
The Marma points in the body activate the meridian pathways to enable the energy to travel around the body. The flow of energy is interrupted when Marma points are blocked, which manifests as physical and emotional symptoms.
