When an attack of mental seizures happens to a mental patient, whether it starts slowly or instantly it increases the flow of electrical impulses inside the brain, and since there is no outlet, the pressure causes the cell walls to be broken and the outlet somehow opens up. Often when the electrical flow inside the cells decreases to a level of zero (neutral) then the patient suddenly becomes free of any thoughts. Although this is not an ailment, when the space is formed inside the main frame of the brain, the electrical flow concentrates on one side of the cells, to a point when these cells lose all memory. When this happens, the patient no matter how hard he tries to remember an event or thing cannot do so. On the one hand, the flow increases to a point where the brain stops functioning. On the other hand, the electrical flow between cells becomes so irregular that the patient becomes irrational. Sometimes he claims Prophethood while on other occasions proclaims himself king.

When this condition persists, the patient may become unaware of the need of clothing or food. In some cases, the patient would continue walking endlessly. He even runs but his body never gets tired or fatigued. Sometimes stares endlessly into the space totally engrossed in thoughts. His worldly life becomes inconsistent. The need of rest and luxury goes away as well. His body holds so much energy that he has to be chained for control. The mental patient may keep on talking incoherently. His eyes become shiny and magnetic. Blinking happens very rarely. For psychosis, schizophrenia and mania both major and minor Tranquilizers are used which result in the following side effects; dry mouth, weaker eyesight, low blood pressure, weight gain, increase in blood sugar. Some patients also are diagnosed with jaundice. Body temperature rises. Parkinson’s disease, paranoia, anxiety, distress, and confusion also are common. With that low appetite sometimes the patient becomes bedridden permanently. Other side effects like these could also happen which may send the patient into a deep coma. Minor tranquilizers, are used to keep the mind peaceful and calm.

 

The other negative effects of these medicines are that the patient becomes dependent on them as well. Prolonged use may also necessitate the increase of dosage since after a while the usual dosage fails to be as effective as the original dose. Tranquilizers should never be stopped instantly as this could lead to other serious ailments such as hysteria, insomnia, nausea, body pain and loss of concentration, to name a few. On the contrary, if the patient is treated with Muraqaba under medical supervision he gets peaceful and calm. In addition, the negative mentality is also weakened by it and the flow of thoughts becomes uniform. Through Muraqaba, the natural link between mind and spirit is enhanced and the man gets new energy from his own Spirit. The mental state at that time is different from that of wakefulness or sleep. Hence, the deterioration of nervous system stops and the cell division goes back to a normal rate.

 

Physically there are two systems that work in our body; the Sympathetic and Parasympathetic system. The first mentioned system controls the high blood pressure and the dilation of cornea. The latter system handles lowering blood pressure, lowering of heartbeat and contraction of cornea and movement of matter within the body. This system works without our will or discretion. For example we are bound to inhale and exhale. Even if we hold the breath for a few moments eventually we are freed to breathe anyway. Heartbeat is also beyond our control. That is why these days there are some Medical experts and Spiritual scientists working to devise a method or exercise through which we would be able to control the functioning of the Parasympathetic System to defend ourselves against diseases and ailments and some diseases may even be eliminated altogether. On this basis, scientists have created a system called ‘Bio Feed Back’ on which research is underway.

 

Through Muraqaba, the parasympathetic system could be controlled at will. Muraqaba brings good changes in the system. The feeling of Muraqaba takes us toward deeper calm and stillness. This state otherwise does not stay with us because the mind never stays on anything for too long. Muraqaba not only increases the will power but physically and psychologically numerous benefits are achieved as well. Experiences and observations have shown that following physical and psychological benefits are achieved by practicing Muraqaba.

  • Control of blood pressure.
  • Increase in life expectancy.
  • Improvement in eyesight (vision).
  • Reduction of fat in blood.
  • Enhanced creativity.
  • Less irritability.
  • Improvement in the performance of heart.
  • Improvement in hearing.
  • Increased immunity.
  • End of depression and anxiety.
  • Reduction of stress.
  • Increase of red blood corpuscles.
  • Improved memory.
  • Better decision making.
  • End of insomnia and deeper sleep.
  • End of fear, increase of levity.
  • End of doubt.
  • End of enmity and jealousy.
  • After the success of Muraqaba a person is set free from the fear of witchcraft, ghosts and all negative thoughts.
