Inner Miracles - The book to take us deeper
This book will take us into a journey within ourselves: to understand in depth what really happens within our being while we go about our daily lives. It provides a very personalized map for self-growth and transformation. There is a healer within each one of us, the one that we seldom listen to, especially if we are having difficulty navigating our human experiences. This inner healer not only has the power to completely transform our lives into something beyond imagination, but to soothe us into truth about ourselves. All of this simply so that we can start living our best lives. The first few chapters of the book provide an introduction to the underlying theories that will help the readers understand the practices. The wisdom in this book is an amalgamation of age of Indic practices and knowledge systems (like Yoga, pranayama, dhyana) and experiential knowledge. The book concerns itself with real-life themes, problems that people face on day to day basis, and provides a detailed explanation on how to remedy the situation. Some of the themes include fatigue, anger, fear. It is a deep dive in each of these patterns and we get to know how to unravel these emotions/experiences in the context of our own lives. The latter part of the book dives into heavier themes that we encounter in our lives: themes like searching for a sense of belonging, understanding our own desires, etc. The reader is guided to get deep insights into each of these themes and is taught to trust their own experiences. Through this book, all of us are guided towards our inner oracle, our own very individual repositories of truth and light, all by breathing deeply and cultivating focus.
