Perhaps you’ve heard my video lectures on Eastern philosophy, Hinduism, and Buddhism. Many people ask me whether I am a Hindu. I tell them I have no labels. I am not advocating for any particular belief or practice. I am not trying to convert anyone. I am not asking you to join any group or organization. I have nothing to sell. I am simply a vehicle, in the same way that a violin plays music.

I practice what works best for me and sets me free of conditioning and dogma. That happens to be called Eastern philosophy, Vedic knowledge, and Sanatan Dharma— the wisdom that flourished in ancient India and that it’s still mighty alive.

I stand for Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam (the world is one family, in Sanskrit), a principle that requires no labels, no groups, no borders, no passports.

Love and Light,
Claudia

Growth and healing can only happen when we achieve a balanced and steady mind. This is difficult for people with traumatic experiences or excessive emotionality. The logical part of their brain is overpowered by the less evolved primitive part of the brain.

Their automatic thoughts (called vritis in Yogic Psychology) have become an habitual pattern of thinking (call samskaras in Yogic Psychology). They are stuck in a negative loop. It has become like an addiction.

Vedic knowledge says that to achieve a steady and healthy mind, we must go deeper, directly to the root of the problem.

This and more I discuss in my book Yoga Psychology for Mental Health: A Guide to the Wisdom of Eastern Philosophy and Yogic Psychology for Mental Health and Healing.

GURU PURNIMA and FULL MOON: A VEHICLE FOR COSMIC INTELLIGENCE
July 23, 2021

A Guru in Eastern tradition is a dispeller of ignorance. A true teacher knows that all answers are within you. She sees the potential within you and the sacred nature of your being, even when you cannot see yourself as such.

A Guru is not really “teaching”’ you. She helps you eliminate the obstacles in your mind and heart that prevent you from seeing the truth— the absolute reality.

A Guru can prescribe certain practices for your advancement, but she never forces, lectures, preaches, or sees you as less than. She doesn’t ask you to join any group or persuades you to believe in something. A Guru simply guides you and holds a space for you to discover your destiny and exercise your free will at the same time. A real Guru sets you free. She appears in your life when you are ready.

A Guru knows that she is not the doer of your learning and spiritual growth, but she is a vehicle through which Cosmic Intelligence—creation—flows freely and works on you.

If you are in the path of dispelling ignorance and finding your true Self within, I wish everyone a special Guru Purnima and continued progress in this beautiful path.

Meditation is much more than an exercise for mental relaxation. The rishis of India experienced the power of concentration and watchfulness through their own practice of meditation. They noticed that by reaching deep states of concentration and heightened awareness, the brain naturally releases chemicals that open up deeper states of consciousness.

Vedic Dharma and the Four Ashramas | Claudia Carballal

VEDIC DHARMA

If you’re looking for a roadmap in life, look no further than dharmic principles based on Vedic wisdom teachings.

There are no new rules of life. Everything is derived from natural universal principles that have been tested by experienced sadhus, sadhvis, rishis and enlightened human beings who have walked this Earth.

Here is a summary of how you can apply these universal practices to your own life.

Real intelligence is when your decisions are supported by your intellect (buddhi) and your soul (purusha) at the same time.

Your ability to connect with your soul, and with Cosmic Consciousness, is directly related to how much you are able to see beyond the mind stuff— the emotional pain and psychological drama that the mind produces.

An excerpt from my upcoming book Yoga Psychology for Mental Health.

The Science of Yoga for Addictions

Welcome to our Q&A Session, How to Apply the Science of Yoga for Addictions.

07/07/2021

Author, Indian teacher, and philosopher, Jiddu Krishnamurti though that modern psychologists seem to be more concerned with helping people conform to society rather than helping them to become free, creating great damage to the human psyche.

True healing happens when we find freedom and liberation from the mind— excessive thoughts, habits of thinking, harmful beliefs, judgment of others, fear, distorted perceptions of reality.

An excerpt from my upcoming book—We normalize our suffering and make it part of our story. This is a form of slavery. To be free, you must want to end suffering. You must want to end identification with pain.

Our human capacity to be conscious and self-aware helps us think and behave with wisdom and compassion. It brings the best out of us and others as it helps us reach our higher self.

Stay focused on the Life Force which is the source of everything and you will evolve further and further in the ladder of evolution of your soul. That is the purpose of life.

BRAIN, MIND, MEDITATION & CONSCIOUS EVOLUTION

The brain is beautiful and highly sensitive, far from perfect.

But…what is the mind?

The mind cannot be pin pointed. It is that element within us that allows us to be aware of ourselves and the world, the faculty of consciousness, our ability to think and make decisions.

Yoga philosophy describes the mind in many different parts. More importantly, it recognizes that our mind, when unmanaged and misunderstood, can be our worst enemy.

The mind’s tendency is to think the worst to keep us alive in the wilderness. But, in a civilized world, this survival mechanism is not as much needed as before— this is evolution.

Our mind, when unchecked, can take us on a downward spiral. Most of our suffering is created by the way we react to our mind’s signals.

Only the healing power of awareness can Free us from our monkey mind.

Mindfulness is the practice of freeing ourselves from harmful mental habits
that keep us stuck in the past and the mental loops of the monkey mind.

Mindfulness practices require to suspend judgment temporarily and engage in meditative techniques for an extended period of time to see results.

The less meditation we practice, the negative thinking patterns and the emotions that they create, keep coming back. Our old brain stays the same. We don’t evolve.

Every time a person gets depressed, for example, the connections in the brain that regulate mood and thoughts, get stronger, making it easier for depression to be triggered again. ( Williams, et al., 2007, The Mindful Way Through Depression)

Every time we meditate, we “change the patterns of brain activity that underline negative emotions.” We make new connections in our brain that develop equanimity, patience, compassion, non-judgment.

The combination of modern cognitive science and Eastern practices of mindfulness and meditation, has shown to break the cycle of harmful thinking habits and a mind out of control.

In Western culture, we are always trying to polish the outside— we want to change things, appear to others what we are not, control others, suppress our feelings, push our emotions down.

In Eastern yoga practices, the most important thing is to polish our inside by going within, being aware of our thoughts and emotions, and not trying to supress them nor engaging with them in negative loops.

The chitta-vrittis, the mind waves, can be controlled with meditation. Strong emotions, like anger, create strong mind waves. “Meditation is one of the great means of controlling the rising of these waves. And if you go on practicing meditation for days and months and years — until it has become a habit, until it comes in spite of yourself — anger and hatred will be controlled and checked. (Vivekananda, 2015).
