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.

How to Take Control of Your Life with Better Boundaries

How to Take Control of Your Life with Better Boundaries

We all have them—those hurtful, frustrating, offensive, manipulative people in our lives. No matter how hard we try to surround ourselves with positive and kind people, there will always be those who will disrespect, insult, berate, and misuse you if we allow them to.

We may, for a variety of reasons, not be able to avoid them, but we can determine how we interact with them and how we allow them to interact with us.

So, how to take control of your life and stop being pushed around?

Learning to set clear firm boundaries with the people in our lives at work and in our personal lives is the best way to protect ourselves from the negative effects of this kind of behavior.

What Boundaries Are (And What They’re Not)

Boundaries are limits

—they are not threats or ultimatums. Boundaries inform or teach. They are not a form of punishment.

Boundaries are firm lines—determined by you—which cannot be crossed by those around you. They are guidelines for how you will allow others to treat you and what kind of behaviors you will expect.

Healthy personal boundaries help protect you from physical or emotional pain. You may also need to set firm boundaries at work to ensure you and your time are not disrespected. Don’t allow others to take advantage of your kindness and generosity.

Clear boundaries communicate to others that you demand respect and consideration—that you are willing to stand up for yourself and that you will not be a doormat for anyone. They are a “no trespassing” sign that makes it very clear when a line has been crossed and that there will be consequences for doing so.

Boundaries are not set with the intention of changing other people. They may change how people interact with you, but they are more about enforcing your needs than attempting to change the general behavior and attitude of others.

How to Establish Boundaries and Take Control of Your Life

Here are some ways that you can establish boundaries and take control of your life.

1. Self-Awareness Comes First

Before you can establish boundaries with others, you first need to understand what your needs are.

You are entitled to respect. You have the right to protect yourself from inappropriate or offensive behavior. Setting boundaries is a way of honoring your needs.

To set appropriate boundaries, you need to be clear about what healthy behaviors look like—what healthy relationships look like.

You first have to become more aware of your feelings and honest with yourself about your expectations and what you feel is appropriate behavior:

  • Where do you need to establish better boundaries?
  • When do you feel disrespected?
  • When do you feel violated, frustrated, or angered by the behavior of others?
  • In what situations do you feel you are being mistreated or taken advantage of?
  • When do you want to be alone?
  • How much space do you need?

You need to honor your own needs and boundaries before you can expect others to honor them. This allows you to take control of your life.

2. Clear Communication Is Essential

Inform others clearly and directly what your expectations are. It is essential to have clear communication if you want others to respect your boundaries. Explain in an honest and respectful tone what you find offensive or unacceptable.

Many people simply aren’t aware that they are behaving inappropriately. They may never have been taught proper manners or consideration for others.

3. Be Specific but Don’t Blame

Taking a blaming or punishing attitude automatically puts people on the defensive. People will not listen when they feel attacked. It’s part of human nature.

That said, you do not need to overexplain or defend yourself. Boundaries are not open to compromise.

Sample language:

Advertising

  • “You may not…yell or raise your voice to me…”
  • “I need…to be treated with respect…”
  • “It’s not okay when…you take things from my desk without asking…”
  • “I won’t…do your work…cover for you anymore…”
  • “It’s not acceptable when…you ridicule or insult me…”
  • “I am uncomfortable when…you use offensive language”
  • “I will no longer be able to…lend you money…”

Being able to communicate these without sounding accusatory is essential if you want others to respect your boundaries so you can take control of your life.

4. Consequences Are Often Necessary

Determine what the appropriate consequences will be when boundaries are crossed. If it’s appropriate, be clear about those consequences upfront when communicating those boundaries to others.

Follow through. People won’t respect your boundaries if you don’t enforce them.

Standing our ground and forcing consequences doesn’t come easily to us. We want to be nice. We want people to like us, but we shouldn’t have to trade our self-respect to gain friends or to achieve success.

We may be tempted to let minor disrespect slide to avoid conflict, but as the familiar saying goes, “if you give people an inch, they’ll take a mile.”

It’s much easier to address offensive or inappropriate behavior now than to wait until that behavior has gotten completely out of hand.

It’s also important to remember that positive reinforcement is even more powerful than negative consequences. When people do alter the way they treat you, acknowledge it. Let people know that you notice and appreciate their efforts.

Final Thoughts

Respect is always a valid reason for setting a boundary. Don’t defend yourself or your needs. Boundaries are often necessary to protect your time, your space, and your feelings. And these are essential if you want to take control of your life.

Start with the easiest boundaries first. Setting boundaries is a skill that needs to be practiced. Enlist support from others if necessary. Inform people immediately when they have crossed the line.

Don’t wait. Communicate politely and directly. Be clear about the consequences and follow them through.

The better you become at setting your own boundaries, the better you become at recognizing and respecting the boundaries of others.

Remember that establishing boundaries is your right. You are entitled to respect. You can’t control how other people behave, but you do have control over the way you allow people to treat you.

Learning to set boundaries is not always easy, but with time, it will become more comfortable. You may eventually find that boundaries become automatic and you no longer need to consciously set them.

They will simply become a natural extension of your self-respect.
