TIPS on Naam Simran for Healing

Some Tips on Naam Simran for Healing

Here are tips in simple words on simran for Healing:
·        Difference between Jap and Simran :

o   Jap is repetition. In Gurmat this repetition is of Naam This is understood at the very beginning of Guru Granth Sahib ji when the word “Jap” comes after Gur Parshad in Mool Manter . Jap is connected with the Mool and Sach.  The repetition should have this connection so that Naam is enshrined in the mind.

Reading Gurbani Shabads.
Nitnem Path.
Listening to Gurbani Shabad Kirtan
Reciting Mool Manter
“Waheguru” gurumanter Jap

o   These Jap should be done with awareness of The Mool as explained in The Mool Manter and further in Gurbani.  This then is Simran.

·        The Disease of the Body as per Gumat is caused by our involvement with the five Vikars- Kama, Krodh, Lobh, Moh , Ahankar .
o   The disease starts with the Mind and is reflected first in the Subtle body (energy Body having meridians and Chakras) which affects body’s physiology and Biochemistry giving rise to symptoms and the then there are pathological changes in the physical Body.

o   The mind and body are deeply connected. Our thoughts affect the body. On daily basis we keep reinforcing negativity through speech, through emotions and actions. Our thoughts are about past memories of wrongs and future worries. In the process we build up distortions in our view and reaction to the worldly affairs. The body reflects what we think. Gurbani explains that Akhar(words) create sanjog (similarity) and shape our Bhag(destiny).

·        The Naam Simran immediately connects our with our Mool the sach. There is positivity and flow of love in the mind. Prefer Amrit Vela ( early morning hours ) for Simran.

·        Those who have faith in Gurbani. Or those who commit to change and surrender ego by being humble before Shabad Guru- Guru Granth Sahib ji feel the vibrational effect of Gurbani in their Mind. The mind which was heavy with thoughts of anger, resentment, ill feeling, victimisation, sadness, anxiety and so on start to be affected by gurbani words. The mind is now lighter and filled with love. This is reflected through resolution of the disease affecting the body.

·        Involvement with Gurbani words is very important. Gurbani connects with Naam. The words are to be slowly uttered with meaning in the mind. These are to be repeated. The recitation and the focus on meaning starts to evoke positive feelings in the mind. These affect the subtle body and the physical body triggering body’s natural repair and defences leading to regression.

·        The medical systems of the world have their own role to play. They are part of creation and worldly system .These are not to be neglected. These however being worldly are limited. These treat one aspect which is connected with the body. The disease exists at three levels: Mind > Energy Body > Physical Body. These systems treat either the Physical body( like Allopathy , Ayurvedic etc) and some the Energy body ( like Acupuncture, Homeopathy etc) so the mind is left out. The mind recreates the disease. The Naam takes out mind negativity and if required creates the circumstances for healing by worldly means too.  Examples are there where one is led to right medicine which completes healing. And also where the person when involved with gurbani just gives up medicines and no longer require them.

·        The Sangat Effect: The gurmat lays great stress on association with sangat. Being part of Sangat. In sangat there is a collective force. This pull and force has effect of similarity and induces the positive effect of gurbani.

The Sarab Rog Ka Aukhad Naam Camps by SRKAN mission based in Ludhiana is doing seva of the panth through healing camps. The testimonials are there online for all to view.

·        The Waheguru Simran:  Waheguru word is Gurumanter. It is first recited in conjunction with breath. Is to be repeated using tongue along with listening to the sound. The purpose is to shift our awareness (surt) within.  The aim is that this shift becomes a natural part even when conducting worldly affairs. The Naam connection comes with this shift. The Naam Simran is then Ras and peace.
Naam is reflected in shabad and Hukam in creation. Through Waheguru akhar Simran is done observing and reflecting on the wondrous play of the creator. HE is seen in the play of the Hukam underlying all activities in the world.
When there is the purpose of healing the Simran is done by reflecting on the wondrous body created by the creator and the functions it performs perfectly. HIS play is seen in the body as well. 
The Bani "Aarti' Should be read with great love and focus on meaning of words to better understand this Simran

  • Speaking with Faith:
                       ਜੋ ਮਾਗਹਿ ਠਾਕੁਰ ਅਪੁਨੇ ਤੇ ਸੋਈ ਸੋਈ ਦੇਵੈ ॥
                      Whatever is asked from the Lord Master, HE gives exactly that.

                        ਨਾਨਕ ਦਾਸੁ ਮੁਖ ਤੇ ਜੋ ਬੋਲੈ ਈਹਾ ਊਹਾ ਸਚੁ ਹੋਵੈ ॥੨॥੧੪॥੪੫॥
                      Whatever , (states)  Nanak , the Dass(devotee) speaks from his mouth,
                       comes to truly occur.
                               ਧਨਾਸਰੀ (ਮ: ੫) ਗੁਰੂ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਸਾਹਿਬ : ਅੰਗ ੬੮੧  - (681)

This Shabad is sung and listened quite often in kirtan. These lines also teach the art of asking from the God.
One must utter what is believed and expected to occur. If one is asking for health and does not expect the result or considers the healing not possible then the same would be true and not occur.
When one is clear in intention, believes and expect the result to be happening gets that as truth in his reality.
One has to be like a devotee who is humble and believes his master to be all powerful and as creator resolves everything.
The devotee also knows that God master expresses and create change through Hukam. The Gurbani words are truth and explaining a Hukam.

The faith , belief and positive timeless thinking happens
when one goes within
when awareness has a focal point inside
when one knows that HE is in everything and everything.
when one knows Naam is the sustains the creation.

In this state doubt is not there. Even when any doubt comes just think the thought as cancelled. Speak gurbani lines and be positive again.
Know that HIS power acts from within as well, the flow of Hukam is within as well. This creative power, the Shabad brings instant change.
Ask to be positive and you would be positive.
Ask for health and you would be healthy.
Ask for cure and you would be cured.
Ask for resolution and the affairs would be resolved
