Beat Anxiety and Stress, the Vedic way

Yogi Ashwini

Have you wondered why we like being with some people and why we want to stay away from some? The reason is simple, anyone who is calm and at peace, or shant creates a serenity around and people feel good in such persons company and those who are disturbed, stressed , anxious or ashant create the same disturbance around them thereby giving signals to people to stay away.. The difference is the difference in positive and negative frequencies/ vibrations. 

The frequency of the waves that a person radiates directly affect his immediate environment , and the Creation at large and as an equal and opposite reaction the state of the person also gets affected by his/her immediate environment.  Thus, a person who is troubled, stressed, anxious  would spread disturbances into his surroundings, and as its effect he would in turn get more and more disturbed; a vicious circle… and all this would have a chaotic and cumulative effect on the whole environment.
