"When The Soul Heals — Explorations In Spiritual Psychology"
A Book By Pulkit Sharma
Following his successful innings as a columnist and a writer for several prominent journals, newspapers and magazines, Pulkit Sharma, clinical psychologist and spiritual counsellor, has published his first book - When The Soul Heals. The book presents a synthesis between ancient spiritual wisdom and contemporary psychological thought, elucidating a deeper self - help approach to reclaim one's life.

When The Soul Heals - Explorations In Spiritual Psychology is a self-help book that presents a distinctive psycho-spiritual healing approach to combat the eight most common psychological issues which many people face nowadays - stress, anger, grief, depression, anxiety, beauty obsessions, addictions and caregiver burden. One or more of these syndromes is present in all of us in a greater or lesser degree and we often look at these as an abnormality. Worldwide, an increasing number are now resorting to mental health services to deal with these difficulties and reclaim their lives. While these services seem to offer solace to many sufferers, a substantial number find them ineffective and some even report that their condition worsens after treatment.

A major problem with psychology is its sketchy knowledge of the human consciousness. It often overlooks the fact that the mind is not the peak of consciousness and that there are realms of consciousness that the mind cannot access. Perfect answers and solutions to several psychological problems faced by man can only be discovered when we connect to these higher layers of consciousness. When we adopt a psycho-spiritual perspective, we realize that these conditions are an opportunity to wake up and undertake an inward journey to connect with our soul, and invoke the Divine force for healing, self-growth and transcendence.

The book describes how we can overcome these problems and revamp our life by connecting to our soul. This book is unique in presenting an eclectic, integrative and secular spiritual psychology - one that integrates insights from 10 major religions of the world - Hinduism, Taoism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Bahai Faith, Sikhism, Buddhism, Jainism and Zoroastrianism along with the timeless teachings of several spiritual masters. In present times, when fundamentalism and cultism is growing and religious intolerance is at an all-time high, the present book amalgamates The Upanishads and The Bhagawad Gita, Tao Te Ching, The Talmund, The Bible, The Quran, Kitab-I-Iqan, Guru Granth Sahib, Dhammapada, Uttaradhyayana Sutra and The Zend Avesta in one space to spread the message that spirituality and spiritual psychology are beyond barriers of religion and cultism.

When The Soul Heals is also distinctive in presenting ancient spiritual wisdom to the readers in a simple, jargon-free manner along with several practical techniques and real-life inspirational case studies. Each chapter starts with a story of a person struggling with a psychological disorder and then looks at the existing psychological methods of treating that disorder followed by enumerating the shortcomings of those methods. Subsequently, the chapter gives a thorough spiritual understanding of the disorder and explains four psycho-spiritual techniques to overcome suffering and expand the level of consciousness. Finally, the chapter narrates how the psycho-spiritual techniques revamped the person’s life and took him or her to a new level of awareness. This format enables the reader to understand the ancient gleanings easily and apply them to his or her day-to-day life without any difficulty.
