Inner Engineering – Master Your Body, Mind, Emotions, and Energies

I want to tell you about a program that really was/is a miraculous blessing to me. Several years ago in the midst of a brutal depressive episode that had lasted for several torturous years I was desperately looking for something to help me. I had active suicidal ideations. I was in tremendous pain. In my desperation I scoured the Internet looking for something, anything to help me that I could afford. I had been on several expensive retreats which gave me some temporary relief and comfort but that relief would always disappear within a day or two of coming home and I was out of money. It was at this time that I found Inner Engineering Online – a seven session online program that cost $150.00 It was the best $150 I ever spent.

Through this amazing program I was able to learn, experience, and therefore know that it was possible for me to manage my mind, my body, my emotions, and my energies in a way that would lead me out of the depths of depression and put me on a path to wellbeing. Right away I experienced a new found sense of hope. This was followed by many new insights into how the mind, body, emotions and energies could be used to develop a sense of stability and relief from depression. As the course continued I was able to experience to my utter amazement that I could quiet my mind which gave me instant relief from anxiety, worry, fear, depression, rumination, and suicidal ideation. The first experience only lasted 15 seconds, but 15 seconds was like a miracle for me. I would then be able to expand that timeframe of equanimity to longer and longer periods. After completing the Shambavi program at the Isha Institute of Inner-Scienses I was shocked and thrilled to experience a 16 hour day of cancelled airline flights, running from terminal to terminal only to get to a flight that wasn’t going to my airport but to another in New York, which then caused me to miss another flight, and numerous other frustrations, with a sense of peace! I was elated at my ability to stay calm, logical, and even happy as I encountered each challenge. This would never have been possible for me before Inner Engineering Online and Shambavi Mahamudra.

Inner Engineering was not able to cure me of Depression from a genetically inherited biochemical imbalance, but it was able to make it possible for me to have a much happier, healthier, and enjoyable life.

Afterward: It is important for people with biochemically based Major Depressive Disorder that the medications can only take you so far. Medication alone will not lead to happiness; it will lead you to a brain state that is not depressed. From that platform of a more “normal” brain state one can learn how to be happy by eliminating the bad habits that are acquired during childhood and while being in states of chronic depression, and to develop more healthy beliefs and behaviors that lead to peace, happiness, and overall wellbeing.

Two Videos by Noah Elkrief to Help With Depression

Here are two videos “How To Deal With Depression” and “How to Stop Feeling Depressed” by a Noah Elkrief. I could summarize the videos for you but I believe that would be a disservice because it would sabotage their purpose which is to help you to experientially know what he Noah is trying to impart to you via direct experience. On an intellectual level you can know every single thing about what defines and causes Depression, but that probably won’t help you at all. What you need is to experience this.

You do not have to watch these videos all at once. I suggest that you watch one at a time and let it sit with you. Perhaps watch it several time and experience it several times before you move on to the next. I hope that these video bring you some relief.

21 Day Gratitude Challenge

I know that it may be hard to feel grateful when you are depressed, but I can assure you that there is something to be grateful for.  Even at times when I was in long protracted periods of immense suffering I still could still find things to be grateful for.  It wasn’t always easy but when I was able to think about what I was grateful for little by little it became easier.  And over time practicing gratitude and  feeling little moments of gratefulness begins to gather momentum and you begin to experience gratefulness even in the midst of suffering.

The 21-Day Challenge invites you to expand and deepen a sense of sufficiency and gratefulness using reflection questions and simple, daily actions. You will have the opportunity to experience first-hand the ways that daily commitments to gratefulness can bring a “greater fullness” to your life. And, you will notice the ways that your changes can impact those around you.

Registering for this Challenge, you’ll receive a daily email with a question, related inspiration, articles and research, and action ideas around a particular topic related to gratitude. You’ll join a vibrant on-line community of like-minded people from all over the world, and you’ll have a chance to share your experiences, read stories of what others are doing, and support each other along the way.

Let’s, again, unleash a grateful groundswell into our lives and the world, together! Register now to get started and you’ll be sent an email with more details.

“Born In Darkness” – Motivational Video

“Get something from it!  You’re already in pain. Us it!  Do something with it!  Allow it to take you to the next level!  Allow you pain to take you to the next level!”  That’s why it’s there, to take you to the next level.

“Recycle your pain.”

Get back up again, and again, and again, and again.  I did it every day several times a day for years.  I still do it.  Get back up again!!!
