Awaken the Slumbering Goddess:
by Ashok Bedi
The Latent Code of the Hindu Goddess Archetypes
In this book, you will learn about this latent code of the slumbering Hindu Goddess archetypes and ways to awaken it, decipher it and deploy it in leading a purposeful life. Rishis, seekers and holy men and women in India have refined this latent code over the last five thousand years.
Drawing from Hindu and Christian spiritual wisdom, medical science, psychiatric technique, and over twenty-five years of clinical experience, Dr. Ashok Bedi demonstrates the clear link between psychological disease and our intrinsic hunger for spiritual union. Each symptom is seen as a crucial whisper from the soul, that if understood, can lead toward increasing levels of psychological balance.
Crossing the Healing Zone advances the new concepts of the emerging frontiers of integrative medicine, bringing together Eastern and Western healing traditions and merging body, mind, and spirit in a Jungian perspective.
We reap what we sow, but we also reap what others before us have sown. If we do this unconsciously, we find ourselves victims of unfortunate circumstances, but if we are conscious of what we have taken on from our family legacy, we can turn it around.
Addicts and alcoholics are often highly spiritualized individuals who lack the faith apparatus to make a healthy connection with their spiritual drive. They turn to negative behavior for fulfillment: alcohol, drugs, food, sex, gambling, pornography, social media, and dysfunctional relationships. This book offers insights and methods whereby faith may be restored and positively channeled into life-sustaining behaviors.
