Amarjit begins the podcast talking about how habit patterns, illness and disease are created. He talks about how all illness begins with the psychological. He goes on to explain how the psychological then effects the physiological, which is then confirmed, and perpetuated by the behavioral. He continues with how understanding the relationship with these three aspects can help you heal yourself. After going through these aspects and explaining how to better understand them within yourself, he shares the experience that taught him how to cure himself from a chronic disease.

How to heal yourself
This is based on my experience of curing an “incurable” disease that I was told would require medication for the rest of my life.
Let me emphasize that I am not a medical doctor. This is not intended to replace medical treatment. Instead it should compliment any medical attention that you may need. Please consult a doctor if you think you have any medical issues.
How disease is formed
Disease is caused by a habitual psychological state that disrupts the physiological process. Moreover, the psychological state often manifests into physical behaviors that support the disease. Many people are predisposition to particular diseases based on hereditary. This doesn’t negate the fact that all disease is based on your samskaras, the deep ingrained habit patterns of your mind – your psychology.
Disease happens when one is ignoring, or not adequately dealing with an underlying psychological issue. The psychological issue creates an emotional reaction that manifests somewhere in the physical body. The sustained repetition of a particular emotional reaction creates a residual imprint within the framework of the body. This emotional imprint impedes the flow of prana, the life-force that animates the body. When the flow of prana is disrupted particular areas of the physiological system are compromised. For example, when the flow of prana to a particular organ is obstructed long enough, the organ’s effectiveness will be inhibited.
All disease is curable.
There are three aspects that need to be addressed to cure a disease.
The psychological state creates the condition, even if it is hereditary. The symptoms are the expression of this state. The main illness is designed to focus your attention on a false identification based on self-judgment.
What is the psychological state that is creating the condition? Watch closely to see what psychological disposition minimizes and maximizes the symptoms.
Determine which organs and body parts are effected by the illness. Then find the chakra that is associated with them. There is a wealth of information on the healthy and unhealthy psychological function of each of the chakras. This provides an indication of what to look for in your own thinking.
You can also use your physicality to observe your own psychology.
Your physical nature reveals a wealth of information about your psychological disposition. The more flexible the body, the more flexible the mind. This also goes for particular areas of the body. For example, having difficulties with asanas that are working the Vishuddha, or throat chakra, is an indication that there is a problem with self-expression. The underlying psychological issues dealing with self-expression need to be addressed from the physical and emotional perspective. If the resistance continues it could lead to neck and shoulder pain, as well as thyroid problems.
Through this understanding you can then work on creating a psychological state that lets go of the false identification and judgment. This means to accept the experience, but not identify with it as you. This is the major problem with false identification. You take your interaction with an experience as a reflection of who you are. However, the “you” that you are identifying with is not the true self. It is a temporary aspect. It is just a reflection of consciousness. It is not consciousness. This is like seeing the reflection of a light in a mirror and thinking it is the light. This judgment and false identification is causing the emotion to manifest in the body and inducing a physical reaction.
Physiological functioning is disturbed by the residual effects of the emotional habit pattern that impedes the flow of prana. You must learn to tune your awareness into the subtle flow of prana to recognize the areas of the physical that are not operating properly.
It takes a very subtle awareness to feel and control the flow of prana throughout the organs. Learning to control prana through pranayama will eventually allow you to control the flow of prana throughout the entire body, including the organs.
3) Behavioral. Your behavior contributes to the illness. Consciously and unconsciously you react to the psychological and physiological impulses creating habit patterns. These habit patterns reinforce the illness.
Look at what dealing with the disease is forcing you to focus on in your life. Examine how the symptoms of the disease are making you feel. What is the disease holding you back from doing? This should help you discover the habit patterns that created the situation.
Looking at your psychological, physiological, and behavioral patterns can be used to heal any aspect of yourself. You don’t have to wait for disease to happen to heal yourself. The best way to heal yourself is to not let it get to the point of disease. Create a healthy living environment through proper nutrition, physical activity, and clear nonjudgmental emotional expression.
