“AYUSKAMA” believes in Healing our Four Bodies (Spiritual, Mental, Emotional &
Physical). Let’s understand
Health is much more than just the absence of disease. Exercise and healthy eating
are typically what come to mind when most people think about physical health.
However, your exercise of choice isn’t the only thing to consider when striving
for good physical health. We all know people who have clean eating habits and
are physically fit, but who carry excessive mental and emotional stress, which
can wear on their health. While it may not be immediately recognizable, chronic
stress takes a tremendous toll on the physical body. Stress occurs when our
spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical needs are not being met. Stress
triggers the fight-flight response, which is a survival mechanism that is
hard-wired into our DNA. It is how our physiology prepares to respond to
potentially life-threatening events. When this response is triggered repeatedly
it creates wear and tear on the physical body.
“Priya was a 38-year-old married IT Expert. She was living a happy life
until she joined a new company with a better salary and position. Which started
to build a pressure on herself. She started thinking that her new boss and
colleagues thought her work is poor and slow, this criticism made her unfriendly
with them. She had no energy or enthusiasm at home. Instead of playing with her
children or talking to her husband, she watched TV for hours, over eated and
long hours. She gained 12-15 Kg in just three months, which made her feel even
worse about herself. Slowly she became overweight and developed lifestyle
True health comes when we are able to create harmony between each of
the four bodies.
1. Spiritual body
The spiritual body is your connection to energy. For some, this may be more
closely tied to religion than spirituality. For others, it could have more
to do with the atoms in the body or the quantum energy that science refers
to. Whichever way you choose to view the source of your energy is perfect.
The Spiritual Body is home to our spiritual self and holds the deep wisdom
of our purpose. Through visions, dreams, messages and intuitions, the
Spiritual Body informs and guides us towards unfolding our emerging self. It
moves us towards who we are to become and what we have come here to do.
Through accessing the Spiritual Body we come into greater relationship with
the vision of our lives and the next steps on our path to achieving that
Spiritual body is connected with our mental body
Our spiritual body contains energy that it transmits to our mental body. When
we are in touch with our spirituality, when our spiritual self is balanced,
we tend to be calm, not to give in to our fears, we feel the presence of
love everywhere and trust in our higher power. We can manifest everything we
need in life effortlessly.
The spiritual self is never really hurt or wounded, it is not out of
rather it is us that are out of alignment with it, and by being disconnected
to our spirituality, we often create mental blocks (that stop the energy
flowing from the spirit to the mind).

2. Mental body
Our mental self is formed of thoughts as well as beliefs, desires,
values, goals, and opinions. It is how we process information, how
we learn, and focus.
This mental body is formed of two parts: our ego-based mind and our
divine mind. The egoic mind is meant to be a tool that we can use in
our favor to create our own beautiful reality (setting intentions,
goals, planning...). We are meant to turn it on only when we need it
and then back off to live from a place of presence in the divine
mind. However, this concept has been lost and we now mostly operate
from our ego-based mind, which is always on and has become an
incessant chatter, exhausting and loud.
However, when we only operate from our egoic mind, letting our
thoughts rule our lives, over planning, over thinking, staying stuck
in past memories or in our own opinions, then we are creating mental
When our mental self is clear and stable, when we are at peace in a
state of Being, and in alignment with our divine mind, the mental
body can receive the energy from the spiritual body and use it to
the fullest, before it creates any form of thought.
Quality of someone under-balanced toward mental:
Confusion, brain fog, ideas lost quickly, lethargy, lack of purpose,
doubt, a lack of work ethic, feelings of low esteem, and low worth.
Qualities of someone over-balanced toward mental:
Ego-centric, excessively driven, sociopathic, and having little or no
empathy especially when it comes to work or success. In a less
extreme way, it’s doing too much or frequently being on overdrive.
What we can do to heal our mental body and clear mental

3. Emotional body
Your emotional body is composed of all your past, present,
and future emotional experiences. It is the aspect of us
that houses emotions such as anger, sadness, fear, hurt,
guilt, resentment, jealousy, and shame. Whenever we have an
experience, it generates feelings that are associated with
past similar experiences, and we develop a label to identify
the emotion. Emotions and memories are categorized and
stored, and they influence how we respond to experiences in
Is there any connection between the mental & emotional
As energy flows down from the mental body into the emotional
body, it can bump into stored baggage from the past and
create some turbulence. Stored baggage can come from past
fears, which can project into the future and cause anxiety.
Or, it can come from experiencing a lot of anger or
resentment toward someone, which can cause anger or
resentment later in life. When the same thing happens with a
different person, you may even develop a belief that all
people are this way.
When there is excess baggage, thoughts from the mental body
will generate emotional stress that trickles down and
affects the physical body. A person with overwhelming stress
will, at some point, experience physical symptoms because of
the mind-body connection. Negative emotions can harm the
body and happiness is linked to overall physical well-being.
This is why it is imperative to develop emotional
intelligence and to adopt practices to have a more positive
outlook on life, both mentally and emotionally. When our
thoughts are more optimistic, our emotional states will be
more positive, and when our emotional states are balanced,
we are then free to enter a state of joy and love & our
physical bodies will be healthier.
Quality of someone under-balanced toward emotional:
A general lack of emotional intelligence, trust, and very
little intuition or ability to read and understand people.
There’s also a lot of fear and neuroses, as well as concern
for the self and less empathy for the experience of others.
This can manifest physically as holding water in the limbs,
joints, and face (especially from hormone imbalance),
dehydration or bloating, inflexibility, and joint stiffness.
Lack of sleep from emotional stress presents similar
symptoms. Mentally, it manifests as self-doubt, projection,
and thinking others have a better life, which again, causes
us to lose sleep and increases the physical symptoms of
imbalance. Ultimately, it means that we are not using the
mental or physical body, either by talking ourselves down to
a point of being rational, or using the lungs and breath to
calm the heartbeat.
Qualities of someone over-balanced toward emotional:
Oversaturated, passive then quickly aggressive, obsessive,
irrational, extremely irritated, depressed, overly anxious,
often with feelings of drowning or hopeless conclusion of
relationships or situations. This can manifest as weight
gain (even while dieting) and too much water in the aura and
system, where the body is behaving like a sponge.
Alternatively, if someone over-fires their nervous system,
one can dry out the emotional body, which also manifests as
being under-weight, dehydrated, or desiccated. Hormones are
key to our health. The heart might feel heavy. The throat
may feel closed, which also adversely affects hormones.
What helps to heal our emotional body:
Engage in Personal Development activities
Create a Vision Board
Work on your Passion
Never Stop Learning

4. Physical body
Our physical body is the only tangible body of the
four. It represents our physical experience in this
lifetime and it is through it that our spirituality,
emotions and thoughts flow. Therefore the physical
body is a good indicator of how things are going in
all areas of our life and at each level of ourselves
(spiritual - mental - emotional).
Our physical body is connected to all other body
If we listen to our body, it will tell us if
something is right or wrong. Our physical body is
not only affected either in a positive or in a
negative way by what directly goes into it (food,
exercise…) but also by our thoughts and our
A balanced physical body is open, flexible, full of
vitality, has all the vitamins and minerals it
needs, functions well, is free of pain, is not
acidic and is free of toxicity.
Quality of someone under-balanced toward
The body ages more rapidly, breaks down more easily,
and loses elasticity. Organ function is disrupted,
there are issues with absorption and elimination,
and there’s a feeling of tightness, heaviness, and
stress on our skeletal frame.
Qualities of someone over-balanced toward
There’s too much focus on physical strength, beauty,
and anti-aging. There’s a tendency to bypass
elements of nature (whole food, water, air quality,
in time, quiet, physical touch, balanced movement)
for the sake of the fast and immediate.
What we can do to take care of our physical
