Faradarmani: The Practice of Complementary and Alternative Healing

Faradarmani: The Practice of Complementary and Alternative Healing

We have no idea when humans started developing ways of dealing with disease, pain, and injury. But what is clear, is that these modalities have existed for ages. Alternative or folk medicine is the result of many influences, including religious, cultural, and social practices, as well as trial and error. Over a long period of time, many of these practices have assumed the characteristics of the cultures and the people who utilize them.

Complementary and Alternative Medicine

Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) consists of a broad range of practices that fall outside of traditional Western medical approaches to care.[1] In contrast, folk remedies include treatments that have been passed down through generations in families, as well as practices that have long been in existence, like Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic medicine, spirituality, yoga, acupuncture, mind/body medicine, homoeopathy, naturopathy, and healing therapy, among others.

Traditional folk medicine tends to see the cause of an illness as a lack of harmony or an imbalance. Connections are seen between someone’s health and their environment, for which they must take personal responsibility. The treatment involves complex practices that take a holistic approach, which often includes a form of energy to provide balance and harmony. Studies show that more than 35% of Americans use some form of CAM practices, of which Caucasian Americans and Asian Americans are the leading ethnicities using these practices.

Psymentology and Faradarmani: New Age Complementary Medical Practices

Many “new age” and complementary medical practices have reemerged or have been discovered in recent decades. Erfan Halgheh, or Interuniversalism, is the philosophy of founder Mohammad Ali Teheri who perished in January 2015 from a hunger strike. The Iranian regime has kept his death and its location secret in an attempt to abolish his teachings and the facts surrounding his death. The Daily Telegraph News quoted the director of the Taheri Campaign, Shahnaz Niroomanesh, saying to reporters, “I confirm that Dr. Mohammad Ali Taheri, our spiritual leader, died as a result of being tortured while on a hunger strike objecting to his death sentence.”[2]

Psymentology and Faradarmani are two complementary medicines and subdivisions of Interuniversalism. They both started out as secular, or non-religious, form of healing with a completely holistic viewpoint regarding the human being. This spiritual view considers man as not just flesh and bones, but as something as vast as existence itself. According to this, human beings consist of hundreds of bodies, starting with the physical body, the mental body, psychological body, archive body, astral body, etc.

Psymentology and Faradarmani: The Therapy

Many people today are proponents of “consciousness” philosophies and of theories about the existence of a “universal consciousness” and its beneficial properties. Faradarmani is considered a treatment for physical illnesses and psychological disorders, as well as psychosomatic diseases. Psymentology treatments of mental, somatic, and mind/psyche/body illnesses are handled in quite a unique way. The healer performing these types of therapies is known as the “worker,” who is able to channel universal consciousness into the patient to bring about a natural healing. The treatment and healing can occur in person or from a distance.

While the patient is undergoing these procedures, he or she is being scanned to reveal the parts of the body that are defective or diseased. Once the symptoms are eliminated, the treatment is initiated. Since consciousness does not consist of matter or energy, the limitations of time and space don’t apply. This is why healing through this modality can occur from close up as well as from afar. Consciousness can’t be quantified or measured; its manifestations can only be seen through its effects on the patient. The worker or therapist does not take credit for any healing. The essential condition for the treatment to work and healing to occur is based on the patient that needs to be an unbiased observer with no preconceptions.

Patients can feel the scanning as pain, a spasm, a seizure, a throng, a sensation of hot or cold, of seeing color or lights, feeling sore, an itch, etc., with a session typically lasting 20 to 30 minutes. A number of benefits are commonly reported by patients, such as feeling noticeably relaxed, higher energy levels, less stress, pain relief, and an overall greater sense of well-being. The founder used to designate who could and could not practice these types of spiritual healings. Today, one must take specific courses to become an instructor and it’s the instructors who are able to bestow the Faradarmani connection upon their students. Both practical and theoretical subjects make up the required courses.

The theoretical subjects consist of learning about universal common intelligence and its network and universal consciousness, as well as the different forms of connecting to universal consciousness for healing in person and long distance. The practical subjects include learning how to make the connection to universal consciousness, how to conduct healing in person and long distance. For this practical part of the coursework, students have no reading or writing assignments and are not asked to memorize anything.

The Practice and The Practitioner

Before a student can be designated to practice, they must sign an agreement of use, which allows the student to have the right to practice, but prevents him or her from claiming they have the power and taking credit rather than letting others know that there is a universal intelligence and consciousness that brought about their healing. The agreement also discusses his or her rights and responsibilities in using this practice and that it must only be done in a humanitarian way. The practitioner must be reminded that they should not claim that any outcome of their practices is due to themselves or their own abilities and talents. This is to prevent the practitioner after a couple of healings, from becoming full of self-pride, attributing the outcomes to their own personal power.

The practitioner has a responsibility, as a part of their signed agreement, to provide accurate information to their patients, informing them that this phenomenon results from universal consciousness, that when one is aligned with universal consciousness, the impossible becomes possible.

Problems can occur when we are referred to as the only group of people who can perform these healings or do such things, as a result of their own individual talents and/or abilities. This is why practitioners must sign the agreement so that they are forced to inform their patients that the source of healing is universal consciousness and not their own powers or talents. This will prevent unfounded rumors from getting around about people with the power to heal or cure disease instead of the truth, which is that universal consciousness is the source.

7 Simple Rules to Live by to Get in Shape in Two Weeks

7 Simple Rules to Live by to Get in Shape in Two Weeks

Learning how to get in shape and set goals is important if you’re looking to live a healthier lifestyle and get closer to your goal weight. While this does require changes to your daily routine, you’ll find that you are able to look and feel better in only two weeks.

Over the years, I’ve learned a lot about what it takes to get in shape. Although anyone can cover the basics (eat right and exercise), there are some things that I could only learn through trial and error. Let’s cover some of the most important points for how to get in shape in two weeks.

1. Exercise Daily

It is far easier to make exercise a habit if it is a daily one. If you aren’t exercising at all, I recommend starting by exercising a half hour every day. When you only exercise a couple times per week, it is much easier to turn one day off into three days off, a week off, or a month off.

If you are already used to exercising, switching to three or four times a week to fit your schedule may be preferable, but it is a lot harder to maintain a workout program you don’t do every day.

Be careful to not repeat the same exercise routine each day. If you do an intense ab workout one day, try switching it up to general cardio the next. You can also squeeze in a day of light walking to break up the intensity.

2. Duration Doesn’t Substitute for Intensity

Once you get into the habit of regular exercise, where do you go if you still aren’t reaching your goals? Most people will solve the problem by exercising for longer periods of time, turning forty-minute workouts into two hour stretches. Not only does this drain your time, but it doesn’t work particularly well.

One study shows that “exercising for a whole hour instead of a half does not provide any additional loss in either body weight or fat”[1].

This is great news for both your schedule and your levels of motivation. You’ll likely find it much easier to exercise for 30 minutes a day instead of an hour. In those 30 minutes, do your best to up the intensity to your appropriate edge to get the most out of the time.

3. Acknowledge Your Limits

Many people get frustrated when they plateau in their weight loss or muscle gaining goals as they’re learning how to get in shape. Everyone has an equilibrium and genetic set point where their body wants to remain. This doesn’t mean that you can’t achieve your fitness goals, but don’t be too hard on yourself if you are struggling to lose weight or put on muscle.

Acknowledging a set point doesn’t mean giving up, but it does mean realizing the obstacles you face.

Expect to hit a plateau in your own fitness results[2]. When you expect a plateau, you can manage around it so you can continue your progress at a more realistic rate. When expectations meet reality, you can avoid dietary crashes.

4. Eat Healthy, Not Just Food That Looks Healthy

Know what you eat. Don’t fuss over minutia like whether you’re getting enough Omega 3’s or tryptophan, but be aware of the big things. Look at the foods you eat regularly and figure out whether they are healthy or not. Don’t get fooled by the deceptively healthy snacks just pretending to be good for you.

The basic nutritional advice includes:

  • Eat unprocessed foods
  • Eat more veggies
  • Use meat as a side dish, not a main course
  • Eat whole grains, not refined grains[3]

Eat whole grains when you want to learn how to get in shape.

    5. Watch Out for Travel

    Don’t let a four-day holiday interfere with your attempts when you’re learning how to get in shape. I don’t mean that you need to follow your diet and exercise plan without any excursion, but when you are in the first few weeks, still forming habits, be careful that a week long break doesn’t terminate your progress.

    This is also true of schedule changes that leave you suddenly busy or make it difficult to exercise. Have a backup plan so you can be consistent, at least for the first month when you are forming habits.

    If travel is on your schedule and can’t be avoided, make an exercise plan before you go[4], and make sure to pack exercise clothes and an exercise mat as motivation to keep you on track.

    6. Start Slow

    Ever start an exercise plan by running ten miles and then puking your guts out? Maybe you aren’t that extreme, but burnout is common early on when learning how to get in shape. You have a lifetime to be healthy, so don’t try to go from couch potato to athletic superstar in a week.

    If you are starting a running regime, for example, run less than you can to start. Starting strength training? Work with less weight than you could theoretically lift. Increasing intensity and pushing yourself can come later when your body becomes comfortable with regular exercise.

    7. Be Careful When Choosing a Workout Partner

    Should you have a workout partner? That depends. Workout partners can help you stay motivated and make exercising more fun. But they can also stop you from reaching your goals.

    My suggestion would be to have a workout partner, but when you start to plateau (either in physical ability, weight loss/gain, or overall health) and you haven’t reached your goals, consider mixing things up a bit.

    If you plateau, you may need to make changes to continue improving. In this case it’s important to talk to your workout partner about the changes you want to make, and if they don’t seem motivated to continue, offer a thirty day break where you both try different activities.

    I notice that guys working out together tend to match strength after a brief adjustment phase. Even if both are trying to improve, something seems to stall improvement once they reach a certain point. I found that I was able to lift as much as 30-50% more after taking a short break from my regular workout partner.

    Final Thoughts

    Learning how to get in shape in as little as two weeks sounds daunting, but if you’re motivated and have the time and energy to devote to it, it’s certainly possible.

    Find an exercise routine that works for you, eat healthy, drink lots of water, and watch as the transformation begins.
