Etymologically, the word ”Psychology” derives its meaning from the two Greek words ‘Psyche’ which means soul and ‘logus’ which means science or knowledge. Thus psychology means the science of the soul – Mind, which functions in three domains viz. Cognitive (thinking), affective (feeling) and conative (willing by means of thought impressions).The goals of psychology are description, explanation , prediction and control of behaviour including subjective experiences.

Emotion is derived from the Greek word ‘Emovere’ which means excitation. Emotion is a stirred up state of body and mind. When a person acts under emotion, he loses his mental balance. Fear, anger, joy, sorrow, hate are instance of emotions. The core of an emotional experience is feeling. When feelings are violent and the composure of our mind is disturbed we have no longer feelings but emotions.Emotions are a state of feelings that has physiological situation and cognitive (mental) components. When we speak of emotion, we usually refer to subjective feelings, physiological basis of emotional feelings, the effects of emotion on perception, thinking and behaviour, motivational properties of certain emotions and expression of emotions in language, facial expressions and gestures.

Feelings and Emotions can be differentiated. Feelings arise from sensation, accompanied by mental processes such as perception, memory, imagination and emotion. Feelings are simple sense-feelings of pleasure and pain, peripherally excited with no physical change. Emotions are higher and more complex affective states, centrally excited. A feeling is expressed in relatively restricted nervous excitement, while an emotion is expressed in wide-ranging excitation involving the voluntary muscles and internal organs of the body. An individual is overwhelmed by an emotion and its reactions.
In most cases, we cannot think of an emotion without an organic, physical expression. Suppression of organic expressions leads to the suppression of corresponding emotions. When we refuse to express our emotions organically (being soul conscious), it dies. Artificial production of organic expressions produces the corresponding emotions. Hypothalamus is necessary for the expression of rage-emotions. When an emotion is aroused, the endocrine glands begin to work vigorously. A depressing emotion usually retards the flow of the hormones that help digestion. So, if an individual is frequently visited by such an emotion, chronic indigestion may occur. The normal function of the thyroid gland is affected by both by anger and fear. So, frequent arousal of these states tear down our physical health. Fear, anger and other strong emotions are connected with the stimulation of sympathetic nerves and so hasten the heart beat and arrest stomach activity.

Stress is a negative emotional experience accompanied by predictable biochemical, physiological, cognitive and behavioural changes that are directed either toward altering the stressful event or accommodating to its effects. Stress is the excitement, feeling of anxiety, and /or physical tension that occurs when the demands placed on an individual are thought to exceed his ability to cope. The physical or psychological demands from the environment that cause this condition are called stressors.
The biochemical and bodily changes represent a natural reaction to an environmental stressor known as fight or flight response. Fight refers to aggressive responses to stress, whereas flight may be seen in social withdrawal or withdrawal through substance use such as alcohol and drugs.On the one hand, the fight or flight response is adaptive because it enables the organism to respond quickly to threat. On the other hand, it can be harmful because stress disrupts emotional and physiological functioning, and when stress continues unabated, it lays the ground work for health problems.
To reduce the negative aspects of stressful events, a healthy personality type  has to be developed, where there are a cluster of characteristics such as sense of commitment, responding to each difficulty as representing a challenge and an opportunity,  a sense of positive involvement with others in social situations, a tendency to attribute one’s own behaviour to internal causes in life with interest, curiosity , optimism and  perceiving that, one has control over one’s life.Whether an event is stressful depends on how it is appraised. Events that are negative, uncontrollable or unpredicatable, ambiguous, overwhelming and threatening to central life tasks are likely to be perceived as stressful.

Psychosomatic disorders are the physical symptoms caused by emotional conflicts. Physical health is inextricably interwoven with the psychological and social environment. The mind and the body cannot be meaningfully separated in matters of health and illness. Psychosomatic  medicine offer profiles of particular disorders believed to be psychosomatic in origin, like ulcers, hyperthyroidism, rheumatoid arthritis, essential hypertension, neuro dermatitis (a skin disorder), colitis and bronchial asthma.Chronic illnesses are diseases in which psychological and social factors are implicated as cases.
The study of personality shows that many undesirable types of personalities are formed due to a wrong training of the emotions. A great deal of our misery is due to misdirected emotions. A happy man is he who has well-trained emotions. No emotion is harmful in itself and none of them to be unconditionally repressed. There are methods to release or re-direct the emotions, like Psycho analysis, Hypnosis, Neuro Linguistic Programming,
Emotional freedom Techniques and Meditation which includes progressive muscle relaxation training, guided imagery, visualisation and Dream analysis. By deep breathing and progressive muscle relaxation, systematic desensitization can be done for treatment of anxiety.  These techniques can reduce heart rate, skin conductance, muscle tension, blood pressure and inflammatory processes, lipid levels, energy utilization, self-report of anxiety and tension.

Psycho-analysis emphasized for the role of unconscious mind in the actions of individuals. The unconscious mind is the seat of repressed tendencies and desires, not approved by the society. According to Freud, in the drama of human existence, sex is the villain of the peace. He holds that early childhood experiences determine the development of personality. The unconscious motive is a very important factor in the creation of attitudes. Sometimes even the individual himself is unaware of the reasons for his attitudes towards a particular person or object because in fact the reason is in his unconscious. Specific unconscious conflicts can produce particular symptoms, through the voluntary nervous system, by physical disturbances, that symbolizes the repressed psychological conflicts, he or she then becomes relatively free of the anxiety the conflict would otherwise produce.

Hypnosis is created by an overload of message units, disorganizing the inhibitory process (critical mind), triggering the fight/flight mechanism and ultimately creating a hypersuggestible state, providing access to the sub conscious mind. The hypnotist uses a state of anxiety which leads to hypnosis. It is not created by a state of relaxation. Once in hypnosis, the flight mechanism takes over, breathing becomes shallower and the body becomes more relaxed. All the positive suggestions for change are placed in the sub conscious mind, which allows the client to feel better.Throughout the hypnosis session, the client is completely aware of the process, being facilitated and has own control to provide or modify suggestions, to support the process.

Dream Therapy  is one of the modalities used in clinical practice. It augments the venting process and allows the therapists to fish around in the client’s past, inner workings of the sub conscious mind, without the negative consequences. By  knowing what the client’s sub conscious is venting, the therapist can effectively monitor the client’s response to suggestions and can guage the progress of therapy by seeing what the client is “letting go off”. The therapist does not interpret dreams for the clients, but rather assists them in interpreting their own dreams.

Emotional Freedom Technique  recognizes “The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system”. The complex system of energy circuits that run throughout the body or meridians as they are called are the centerpiece of Eastern health practices and form the basis for modern day acupuncture, acupressure and a wide variety of other healing techniques. This energy courses through the body and is invisible to the eye. By simply tapping near the end points of the energy meridians some profound changes in  emotional and physical health are experienced. These changes would not occur if there was no energy system. The past memories may contribute to an unwanted emotion, but they are not the direct cause, accordingly, there is no need to spend time painfully dwelling on them. Thus there is relatively little emotional suffering involved with EFT. It is relatively painless. The existence of any energy imbalance can be detected using some unique muscle testing diagnostic techniques.

Neurolinguistic Programming is the systematic study of human performance. This study of the structure of the subjective experience can be broken down into their smallest components and changed, modified, improved upon or removed. It enables therapists to be much more effective in assisting change in their clients lives. NLP is a practical application on how people think and directed towards solving problems from the past, by improving the sensory acuity by becoming more aware of visual , auditory and kinesthetic senses.
Raja Yoga is the meditation technique by which emotions are directed to worthy ends, transforming the emotions in to physically and socially useful. Soul consciousness is given importance, to avoid organic-physical becoming over expressive during stress and thereby control the emotions. By maintaining the feelings constantly, not eliciting to emotions, all the past emotional strains get collapsed and removed by the power of generalization of brain-mind, for the attitude and body to become positive and healthy forever. The faith in God adds to the advantage of expressing the feelings of love and relationships towards God, and hence helps in eliminating the emotions of loneliness, uncertainty, the worst fear of death, hopelessness and lack of moral support.

Self Realization and God Realization

The Power of Silence

Before doing any action, if we are able to feel the silence and carryout the action whether it is physical or Mental, there is always Success. Because when we are in silence, we are connected to God and Everyone....

How to feel the Silence - just be in the present moments

Apply a full stop to the past thoughts by being aware of the present moments, experience-feel the silence between the sounds, although we feel the silence is outside - in reality the silence is within....

The Truth

I never born, I never die. I exist forever,
I am the dust free - clean mirror, which reflects what is in front,
I am resplendent, I own nothing,
I am peace, love, Bliss.I am peace, love, Bliss.

I am powerful, alone, ever free being.
I am love but detached to beings and things - like a lotus flower.
I am almighty like the Almighty.

I clean the dust of thoughts from my self - the mirror, by silence
I connect to souls and Supreme Soul by silence
I am empowered, healed by silence
Silence, I am.

The Practice of second

Mind cannot concentrate on two things at a time.
It can be, either my self or action.
The spiritual effort is to come back to self, every moment, when I am free from action.

Soul consciousness and God consciousness

Being peace, I become Ocean of peace.
Being love, I become Ocean of love.
Being bliss, I become Ocean of bliss.

Meditation is to make the conscious mind easy, clear, light and loveful, with the connection of Supreme soul, by accessing the peaceful and magical sub conscious mind.

I am painful at heart (immediate or later) when i look at the physical expressions.
I am free from pain (the very moment) when i look at the shining light within me and others.

When I am attached to beings or things, gods-angels control me.
When I break free from attachments, I become god-angel.

Creation, Sustenance and Destruction:
I Create and Sustain the world (of time) within me, by thought.
I destroy the physical world within, being my self.

Son shows Father:
By the awareness of Supreme light in His abode, only Supreme Consciousness remains.
Cannot differentiate if it is me or Him.

Self Control:
I do not become lust,anger,pain,sufferings by looking at them,
If I see self in others and feel the qualities of self within me.

Creator and Creations:
When God is a Creator, I am a Creator as well, when I remain One with Him in Silence.
Let me create all happiness, removing all sorrows, now.

Self realization is, to remain combined with the Supreme, not succumbing to His dream of creations, but to reveal Him at all times.

Self realized is, to surrender all worries, pains to Supreme Father,with complete faith in Him.Self realized have intuitions (asochtha) than mere thinking.

Hey souls, why do you get attached to particular few human beings,don't you remember the One who loved you,before you took birth and who loves you forever, even after death? why do you worry when He takes care of you all the time?

Stable Mind: 
If I maintain a relaxed and peaceful state of mind with love, all the time, from the moment I wake up, then, I am stable in any situation.

Self Realization:Relax and Still the body,
Listen to sounds around us,
What is there between sounds?
It is the Silence within me, the awareness of peaceful being, I am.

Secret of Success:
When you are aware of your self (soul), as a point of light, you are light.
When your internal chat (constant thinking) stops, being an observer, you express power.
When you have a balance of being light and powerful, then you create wonders, your actions are accurate and purposeful.

You become what you think:
When you are aware of the Supreme Soul, who is in a perfect state of mind, blissful at all times,
You emerge the same nature of being light - bodiless and peaceful - powerful within,
Becoming equal like Him, even whilst performing actions.

Spiritual Power:
It is not an attainment of supernatural power or difficult, long spiritual practice.
But being natural in the here and now.

The Truth:
When I know and feel the true nature of myself, of being light and peaceful,
It is possible to remain content and peaceful at every moment.
It is possible to do all action with the constant awareness of lightness and peace.
Even if there is a lot to think, I can think with peace and lightness.
Even if the shaking incidence happens, still I can deal with the situation with the peace and light.
It is not that the peace and light belong only to great saints or holy men, but it is always present within you and me.
Whilst reading and writing, I can do it with contentment and lightness.
Every moment I am satisfied and content even though I carry out complicated actions.
Whether I perform action or not, I can remain stable with peace and light.
The work pressure is too much, even then I can plan being light and peace, being stable.
Even there are situation to shout at, I can handle the situation with calmness.
All this is possible when I know that, whatever I do, whether earn money, do study or work hard, ultimately it is for this peace and lightness.
When I do every action, even to love, is for peace and lightness. Why should I lose them at this moment to catch hold of it later.
I will not lose my love for peace and lightness at this moment and every moment for want of wealth or health or love for others or any action.
Even if I lose anything most valuable, I will not lose my peace and lightness because I desire  the most valuable, only for the sake of peace and lightness, which I can experience even now.
Even if I am concentrated on any activity, I do it with peace and lightness.
Even If I lose my hard earned money, I can be peaceful and light at this moment and every moment.
Even when I want to oppose, I oppose with peace and light.
When I want to raise my voice, I do it with peace and light.
When there is force on me with expectations, I respond with my peace and light.
Yes, It is possible for every human being to be peaceful and light at every moment,
Because I am peace and light.
I am that.

Soul and God:
Soul and God are different from five elements
Soul becomes influenced by five elements including body
God never becomes influenced by five elements
Expression of virtues is soul conscious
Expression of divine virtues being detached and unlimited, is soul combined with God
To be sweet and light is soul conscious
To be sweet, light and powerful is combined soul and God conscious
To love is soul conscious
To love being lawful is combined soul and God conscious
To express sweetness and love towards soft characters is soul conscious
To express sweetness and love towards hard characters is combined soul and God conscious
To be aware and connect the souls around us is soul conscious
To be aware and connect the souls around the globe is combined soul and God conscious
Vibrations of soul affect the limited souls and five elements
Vibrations of Soul with awareness of God, serve the unlimited souls and five elements naturally.
To be limited is soul conscious
To be unlimited is soul and God conscious
Battery of soul loses its power when actions are done in soul conscious
Batter of soul becomes powerful, when actions are done in combined soul and God conscious
The combined soul and God conscious is nothing but the merged qualities that are natural to the soul.

Soul gets disgusted with love, things, money, food, sex, people but not with the "gratitude".
Gratitude, the response of unconditional selfless love is an everlasting impression, makes the soul an eternal being.

Divide your sleep in to 3 parts.Ist part is where the thoughts are processed,the 2nd part is where the emotions are vented out and during the 3rd part of early morning sleep is the prediction of what you have to work on to make yourself strong. All images what you see in dream are the expressions of your own emotions but the su...bconscious mind plays it well that the conscious mind do not feel bad about it.
