It is known
that even recently important glands were still overlooked. Similarly, even at present, people do not think about psychic energy.

and other negative emotions, which not only cause the contraction of the blood vessels but also paralyzes of the individual
nerves, these electric currents (psychic energy), which flow through them form the sympathetic nervous system, break, and
thus "the electric nourishment" of the glands producing the internal secretions (on whose normal activity depends the life
of the organism) ceases, and the latter fail to work as is necessary for our health.
In our cellular
substance that surrounds the nucleus, there are chromosomes and so-called chondriosomes. These elements are, according to
their properties, the receptors of various electric waves, as it were, which come partly from the depths of Cosmic Space and,
of course, they vibrate mainly upon our psychic energy. The whole life of the organism, according to Lakhovsky, depends upon
the vibrations of these chromosomes and chondriosomes, the receivers of the electric waves. The retardation or cessation of
the electric vibrations that go through them signifies disease and death.
moral Teachings acquire a completely unexpected biological foundation. And the significance of psychic energy, which is basically
Fohatic, is thus affirmed. Fohat, as we know, is cosmic electricity, or the Primary Energy, which reveals itself in various
stages on the plane of manifestation. Now you will also understand how beneficial are the vibrations that are sent by the
Great Teacher during an illness. LHR2.
It is good
to be in the sunshine, but the starlit sky also brings harmony to the nerves. The moon, on the contrary, is not for us. The
moon's pure light affects the prana. The magnetism of the moon is great, but for repose it is not good. Often the moon evokes
fatigue, like people who devour one's vital energy. The manifestation of miraculous power increases during moonlight.
A pure prana
must respond to the attraction, otherwise there is no miracle but a destruction of the vital treasure trove. While resting
it is good to laugh, for the thyroid gland is purified by laughter. To purify the glands is a primary duty. LOMG2, 4.
knows that, although the symptoms are similar, there is a difference between the process of the discharge of psychic energy
and its unexpected disturbance. In the first instance, irritation of the mucous membranes is linked to the increased discharge
of psychic energy, which occurs during an intensification of mental activity. Likewise, a long-distance sending of energy
causes tension in the glands and tissues, which are particularly affected when the cosmic currents are unfavorable.
the disruption of psychic energy is not always caused by mental overwork; it may also be the result of emotional shocks or
grief, or even unexpected fortunate or unfortunate events. Threatening world events may thus cause epidemics, whose diverse
symptoms may be ascribed to heart disease, colds, and stomach disorders, but whose true cause—the disruption of psychic
energy—is overlooked. An increase in nervous ailments may also be noted during such epidemics, but people do not realize
that ultimately all illnesses are related to the nervous system. And the treatment in all cases must be not only physical,
but also spiritual. A calm striving toward lofty ideals is needed, and the quiet repetition of Solomon’s saying, “And
this too shall pass.” If this kind of internal suggestion is not sufficient, outside suggestion can also be applied.
you already know some useful remedies, such as nux vomica, arsenium, ferrum, and, of course, our old friend, valerian, and,
in cases of fatigue, musk. Warm baths are always beneficial. There are other remedies that depend on the particular bodily
system that is affected. One can relieve the symptoms of psychic disturbance in all its phases. Such increases in disease
deserve immediate attention, since all illness connected with the nerve centers can spread quickly and should be checked.
Ignorance of causes always leads to bad results. And if one adds to all this the various kinds of self-poisoning, a sad picture
emerges. SMD3, 495.
When a physician
prohibits a man who has lost his equilibrium from working mentally, he acts unwisely. There are well-known examples of experienced
physicians who, on the contrary, intensified the activity of psychic energy. Indeed, such healers must possess a considerable
store of psychic energy in order to discern the domain of knowledge to which to direct the patient.
harmful, while tension is vitalizing. But the boundary line between these conditions is very intricate. Experienced physicians
who refine their own psychic energy can indicate the measure of useful tension. AUM 482.
Can a yogi

He will know where energy was overspent and will, without losing equanimity, make use of valerian and musk.

Let us agree
on the meaning of the concept of rest. Around this concept a multitude of false and harmful interpretations have clustered.
People have become accustomed to think that rest is inaction; in this way it has become transformed into psychic enfeeblement.
Inaction is most corruptive for psychic energy. Each spiritual immobility will fatigue, not regenerate.
prescribe rest, quiet, all kinds of inaction, and assume that in a moribund state it is possible to restore strength. But
these same physicians understand that weakness and collapse result from violation of equilibrium. Thus, rest is nothing but
equilibrium. But equilibrium is a proportionate tension of energy. Only thus is it possible to restore and strengthen one's
forces. It is of no consequence whether equilibrium be acquired in desert or city the main requisite is constant tension.
The path of tension is the path of striving, that is to say, the path of life.
physician warns against expenditure of strength, but strength is dissipated through lack of equilibrium. Truly, then, equilibrium
will be the best, the only panacea. A sensible use of fresh air is worthy of consideration as an assisting expedient, but
this does not require a long period of time. Let the concept of rest be rightly understood for the manifestation of Brotherhood.

Actually, people do not picture to themselves that they are surrounded by Fire, which acts upon their primary energy. It would

especially fearful of overtiring the brain, but this is absurd because thought cannot cause excessive fatigue. Mental disease
is caused by numerous other excesses. Smoking, drinking, sexual overindulgence, lack of sleep, overeating, irritation, a wearying
depression, envy, treason, and many horrors of darkness cause the overstrain which is ascribed to mental labors. As a prophylactic
force, thought not only does not occasion fatigue but contributes to the interchange of higher substances. To blame thought
for overfatigue is equivalent to expulsion of Agni from the heart. FW1 646.

drowsiness, inflammations, and excessive activity of the heart, all these precede a decrease of psychic energy. SMD2 277.
warn against such excessive fatigue. But, although many earthly illnesses are the result of such excessive tension of psychic
energy, it is impossible to free a thinking being from the tension that accompanies the battle with the dark forces. SMD2

illness that can last for years, and sometimes for life. The latest research suggests that the symptoms of CFS may be caused
- at least in part - by a continuing immune response to a real or perceived challenge. Symptoms of CFS include overwhelming
exhaustion, both physical and cognitive, memory and concentration impairment, an intense 'flu like feeling, muscle pain, sleep
disturbance, headaches, disturbance of balance and other symptoms. There is no effective treatment for CFS, so correct management
of the illness plays an important role.
