Healer’s Journal – 13 January 2014
HJ: While many consider Yoga a purely physical exercise, as traditionally practiced, it is equally as focused on healing and balancing the mind as it is the body. This involves removing what are known as ‘samskaras’, loosely translated as ‘mind impressions’ or simply ‘impressions’. What is being referred to is subconscious imprinting of thoughts and belief structures that typically produce unwanted mental debris such as irrational fear, self-doubt, lack of self trust, etc. The modern counterpart to a samskara would be a core limiting belief that affects your quality of life.
