Heart chakra makes people larger than life. Here, you will learn everything you wanted to know about the heart chakra: the affirmations, meditations, mantra, color, elements, symptoms, blockages, healing, and neuropsychology. The beauty of the heart center is that it motivates people to go out of their comfort zones and do something for the well being of humanity and the other beings.
The heart center doesn't work independently. It works collaboratively with the other 114 chakras and the different brain regions. Concentration on this chakra increases Sankalpa Shakti, the power to fulfilling the divine purpose of life without obstacle. Meditation on this chakra increases equanimity, joy, loving-kindness and clarity of mind.
Heart Chakra The Anahata Chakra or the 4th Chakra
The seven chakras are the primary energy centres of the body. The heart chakra is also known as the Anahata chakra or the 4th chakra. You've probably heard people talk about "unblocking the heart chakra", which refers to the idea of the expansion of the heart energy. When your heart chakra is properly active and open, your divine energy can bring a positive transformation in your life and in many lives.
Sri Amit Ray talks about Sanjivani Vidya, Urja Vidya and Ayurveda to enhance your immunity, healing power and spirituality. The eleven key immunity chakras and eleven key healing herbs are discussed. This article is for the students, who have attended the Ray 114 Chakra meditation course.
Sanjivani Vidya gives huge spiritual energy for deep meditation. Sanjivani Vidya is vital for getting up early in the morning especially at 3:45 AM and for deep ishvara pranidhana - realizing the supreme truth. Urja Vidya is necessary for developing concentration, patience, mental clarity, and creativity. Both of them are associated with immunity and mental strength.
Ayurved and Sanjivani Vidya
In ancient oral tradition of Ray Ayurveda, there are seven protocols to improve your immunity, health and spirituality. These seven Ayurveda protocols are the seven ways to study the herbs, human body system, the 114 chakras and 72000 nadis, and the diseases. Among these seven Ayurveda protocols, the following three protocols are very important for immunity, health and healing. The first one is the traditional vata-pitta-kapha protocol (Dhatu Vidya). The other two vital protocols are Sanjivani pathway protocol (Sanjivani Vidya), and the Urja pathway protocol (Urja Vidya). Today, I will discuss mainly the Sanjivani pathway protocol and the Urja pathway protocols, which are studied to improve immunity in inline with the 114 chakras in human body.Read more ..
Leadership from Inner Being: Overcoming the Blind Spots
Sri Amit Ray explains the concept of leadership from inner being. He also describes how to overcome the blind spots in leadership and decision making processes.
Leadership begins with a simple human gesture and that is to inspire others, and to inspire others you must feel integrated, harmonious and whole. When you are disconnected with your Inner Being, you don't feel solid and whole in yourself. When you are connected with your Inner Being, you feel integrated, harmonious and whole.
Here, by inner dimensions I mean inner strength, inner vision - the expanded consciousness beyond the small ego which considers him or her self separate from the rest. On the Physical body level we have emotional blockages. When you are connected with your Inner Being, you feel integrated, harmonious and whole. When you operate from your Inner Being you can overcome the mundane emotional blockages that drags you down. Through meditation, mindfulness and positive mindset we can get connection with our Inner Being. Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King are the examples of leadership from Inner Being.
Authentic Leadership and Inner Dimensions:
We can consistently inspire others when we are authentic - authentic to ourselves and authentic to others. Authenticity is the single most important principle of leadership. Authenticity comes from our deeper inner dimensions. It comes from our core values, principles, and life experiences.
To be a good leader you must be authentic to your current state of development as well as to your potential state of development. In cryptography, authenticity means messages that received by A are actually sent by B - there is no noise, error or loss of information. In leadership, authenticity means what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony. There should not be any contradiction, confusion or doubt. Today's best leaders are authentic leaders. They are connected with their inner being, which guides them in their daily actions and enables them to earn the trust of their subordinates, peers, and shareholders.Read more ..
Stress Relief and Heart Rate Variability with Om Meditation
Sri Amit Ray explains how om meditation and Om chanting is related to heart rate variability and stress relief.
Your heart rate is constantly changing to meet various requirements of your body and mind. Heart Rate Variability (HRV) measures how your heart rate varies over time. Generally, heart rate variability increases during relaxation and recovering activities and decreases during stress and anxiety. HRV reflects the changes in the interval between heartbeats (R wave) over time.
Broadly speaking there are seven types of Om meditation. The impact of these meditations on stress level varies from person to person. HRV measurement just after different Om meditations can help you to assess the impact of your personalized meditation techniques on stress relief.
Due to advancement of new sensor technologies, smartphone apps, and accessibility to high-quality wearable technology, you can measure your Heart Rate Variability (HRV) at your home and easily monitor your stress level and study the impact of Om chanting or Om meditation and other personalized meditation practices at your own, without referring to any complicated research articles.
Generally, higher fitness levels results in increased HRV and lower fitness levels results in decreased HRV. High HRV is normally viewed as an indicator of a healthy heart. HRV is commonly higher when your heart is beating slowly with in-built relaxation. HRV decreases as your heart beats more quickly. HRV decreases under conditions of acute time pressure and emotional strain and elevated state of anxiety, mostly related to focused attention.
Day-to-day normal level of stress is fine, but chronic stress is dangerous. If you become stressed and don’t sleep well in the night, you may see your HRV values are gradually lowering. Higher HRV is associated with stronger vagus nerve function, lower chronic stress levels, better overall health, and improved cognition.
Heart rate is the number of heartbeats per minute, while heart rate variability (HRV) is the fluctuation in the time intervals between the heartbeats. HRV measures beat-to-beat variability over a wide range of time. HRV gives better understanding about how much time our body needs to get back to normal state after an intense work activities or stress. HRV is a measure of our resilience.
Stress, HRV and OM Chanting
Excessive uncertainty and ambiguity in modern first-living life style leads to excessive stress. Om meditation is an easy way to transform the stress energy into positive life force. We will discuss here, the science behind these ancient and secret meditation techniques.Read more ..
Om Chanting for Discovering the Kingdom of God Within You
Sri Amit Ray talks about accessing the kingdom of God that is within you, in the light of Om chanting and Om meditation.
The kingdom of God is a metaphor - metaphor of transformation into more creative, more conscious, more caring, loving and fulfilling life with the fellow beings. It talks about the higher inner dimensions of human soul. It is about discovering the inner treasures like: inner strength, adaptability, acceptability, resilience, forgiveness, and caring power that is within us. Om chanting and Om meditation has tremendous power to activate these inner powers. Om chanting has several benefits and it is an art - a systematic step by step process.
True kingdom is the deep feelings of love with the wholeness or fullness of the world. This kingdom was meant not to be taught, but to be self-discovered. It is about realizing and unfolding our best inner qualities for the service of the humanity and the environment where we live. The essence of the kingdom is transformation that would happen inside us and within the world where we live. Rather than being imposed from the outside, it all about remaking ourselves for betterment from the inside. God will bring heaven to earth only when our love for all beings are complete and genuine.
Om meditations can make you more focused, caring, strong, and decisive. It can give you strong inner strength, which inspire people to follow you because you will become more courageous, confident, clear minded, big hearted, and big thinker. By practicing Om chanting, you will be able to face the tough questions and challenges of life more smoothly and efficiently. The seven dimensions of inner power through Om chanting are as follows:Read more ..
The 10 Properties of Quantum Machine Learning
Dr. Amit Ray, Compassionate AI Lab
In this article, we discussed the 10 properties and characteristics of hybrid classical-quantum machine learning approaches for our Compassionate AI Lab projects. Quantum computers with the power of machine learning will disrupt every industry. They will change the way we live in this world and the way we fight diseases, care for old people and blind people, invent new medicines and new materials, and solve health, climate and social issues. Similar to the 10 V's of big data we have identified 10 M's of quantum machine learning (QML). These 10 properties of quantum machine learning can be argued, debated and fine tuned for further refinements.
The field of hybrid classical-quantum machine learning has been maturing rapidly with the availability of the prototype universal gate-model quantum processors of IBM, Google, and Rigetti as well as more sophisticated quantum annealers of D-Wave systems. Moreover, the availability of various high-performance computing (HPC) simulation of quantum circuits facilities improving the possibilities of exploring the power of QML in various application areas. Quantum hardware dedicated to machine learning are also becoming reality. They too can provide much faster processing power than a general-purpose quantum computer.
The compassionate AI lab is currently developing a hybrid classical-quantum machine learning (HQML) framework - a quantum computing virtual plugin to build a bridge between the available quantum computing facilities with the classical machine learning software like Tensor flow, Scikit-learn, Keras, XGBoost, LightGBM, and cuDNN.
Presently the hybrid classical-quantum machine learning (HQML) framework includes the quantum learning algorithms like: Quantum Neural Networks, Quantum Boltzmann Machine, Quantum Principal Component Analysis, Quantum k-means algorithm, Quantum k-medians algorithm, Quantum Bayesian Networks and Quantum Support Vector Machines.
Five Key Benefits of Quantum Machine Learning
Here, Dr. Amit Ray discusses the five key benefits of quantum machine learning.
Quantum machine learning is evolving very fast and gaining enormous momentum due to its huge potential. Quantum machine learning is the key technology for future compassionate artificial intelligence. In our Compassionate AI Lab, we have conducted several experiments on quantum machine learning in the areas of drug-discovery, combating antibiotic resistance bacteria, and multi-omics data integration.
We have realized that in the area of drug design and multi-omics data integration, the power of deep learning is very much restricted in classical computer. Hence, with limited facilities, we have conducted many hybrid classical-quantum machine learning algorithm testing at our Compassionate AI Lab.
What is holding back the large scale implementation of machine learning systems in healthcare and precision medicine? In this article Dr. Amit Ray, explains the key obstacles and challenges of implementing large-scale machine learning systems in healthcare. Dr. Ray argued that lack of deeper integration, incomplete understanding of the underlying molecular processes of disease it is intended to treat, may limit the progress of implementing large-scale machine learning based reliable systems in healthcare. Here, nine obstacles of present day machine learning systems in healthcare are discussed.
Machine Learning in Healthcare
Recently, machine learning algorithms, especially deep learning has shown impressive performance in many areas of medical science, especially in classifying imaging data in different clinical domains. In academic environment, Deep learning and Reinforcement learning methods of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has shown tremendous success in numerous clinical areas such as: Omics data integration (such as genomics, proteomics or metabolomics), prediction of drug-disease correlation based on gene expression, and finding combinations of drugs that should not be taken together. Deep learning is very successful in predicting cancer outcome based on tumour tissue images. Machine learning are used for medical decision support systems for ICU and critical care. Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare Current Trends discusses the current status of AI in healthcare.Read more ..
How many qubits are needed to out-perform conventional computers, how to protect a quantum computer from the effects of decoherence and how to design more than 1000 qubits fault-tolerant large scale quantum computers, these are the three basic questions we want to deal in this article. Qubit technologies, qubit quality, qubit count, qubit connectivity and qubit architectures are the five key areas of quantum computing are discussed.
Earlier we have discussed 7 Core Qubit Technologies for Quantum Computing, 7 Key Requirements for Quantum Computing. Spin-orbit Coupling Qubits for Quantum Computing and AI, Quantum Computing Algorithms for Artificial Intelligence, Quantum Computing and Artificial Intelligence , Quantum Computing with Many World Interpretation Scopes and Challenges and Quantum Computer with Superconductivity at Room Temperature. Here, we will focus on practical issues related to designing large-scale quantum computers.
Instead of running on zeros and ones, quantum computers run on an infinite number of states between zero and one. Instead of performing one calculation before moving on to the next, quantum computers can manage multiple processes all simultaneously.
Unlike binary bits of information in ordinary computers, “qubits” consist of quantum particles that have some probability of being in each of two states, represent as |0⟩ and |1⟩, simultaneously. When qubits interact, their possible states become interdependent (entangled), each one’s chances of |0⟩ and |1⟩ hinging on those of the other. Moreover, quantum information does not have to be encoded into binary bits, it could also be encoded into continuous observables bits (qubits).
The speed requirements for various applications grows with the complexity of the problems and the speed advantage of quantum computers are enormous compare to classical computers. The key to quantum computation speed is that every additional qubit doubles the potential computing power of a quantum machine.
The objective of 1000 qubits fault-tolerant quantum computing is to compute accurately even when gates have a high probability of error each time they are used. Theoretically, accurate quantum computing is possible with error probabilities above 3% per gate, which is significantly high. The resources required for quantum computing depends on the error probabilities of the gates. It is possible to implement non-trivial quantum computations at error probabilities as high as 1% per gate.Read more ..
