With each passing year, our connection with the external world is improving. Thanks to fast-evolving technology, now video calls have become cheaper and more accessible.
Now you can connect with your friends and cousins in the UK within a fraction of a second, just hit that call button.
Technology is helping us foster better connections, throughout the world. We spend hours scrolling through our feeds on different social media platforms - to engage with communities.
An average Indian spends 4.7 hours today scrolling.
Are we really connected though? When was the last time you sat with yourself and observed the reality within you - observed your breath and your body and listened to what it had to say?
Let's explore 5 Ways to Connect with Your Inner-Self
#TheDivineinYou is an initiative by Amrutam to help our community members reconnect with their spiritual and divine selves.
1. Listening to Guided Meditations
Guided meditations can be a powerful source to let yourself rejuvenate and connect with your inner reality. You can take out five-to-ten minutes from your daily schedule to sit in silence and let yourself wander into your inner world.
2. Listening to Amrutam Raga Project
Music has always been viewed as a tool of therapy and creation, especially Indian Classical Music which requires lifelong training and practice. Indian Classical Music, Ayurveda and Spirituality are essentially extensions of each other and cannot be separated.
With Amrutam Raga Project, Team Amrutam aims to support and promote local talent and bring into the spotlight the cultural richness of Gwalior as a musical town. We hope you will enjoy watching the beautiful journey of these artists and find a way of appreciating their art in whatever way possible.
3. Chant Mantras for Better Health
||ॐ त्र्यम्बकं यजामहे सुगन्धिं पुष्टिवर्धनम्। उर्वारुकमिव बन्धनान्मृत्योर्मुक्षीय माऽमृतात्॥
।। Om Tryambakam Yajamahe Sugandhim Pushtivardhanam. Urvarukamiv bandhananmrityormukshiyya mamritat ।।
Do you know? "Tryambakam Mantra" also known as Mahamrityunjaya Mantra is considered to have the following benefits:
- Bestows longevity
- Helps with Holistic Healing
- Helps ward off any calamities
According to many, chanting the Mahamrityunjaya mantra releases a string of vibrations that realigns the physical body ensuring the maintenance and restoration of good health.
Dr. K K Aggarwal, Padma Shri Awardee also vouches for the power of the Mahamrityunjaya mantra.
4. Journal Regularly
Journaling is a practice of self-expression that leads to emotional growth and healing. It is said that writing is a window to the soul. By writing down our innermost thoughts and emotions in a journal, we are able to explore and express our emotional sides creatively. Doing so has a plethora of benefits.
5. Connect with an Expert
Sometimes, when we are unable to make sense of our inner reality and everything seems chaotic, it's okay and recommended to reach out for help. You can connect with Ayurvedic experts at www.amrutam.global to learn more.
