Fire Fighters Find Solace in Nitaai Meditation
Being a firefighter is a challenging profession which involves a lot of alertness, courage and readiness to face terrifying situations. Firefighters don’t just have to cater to burning buildings, they are often summoned on the scene of life threatening situations, explosions, natural disasters, animal rescue, traffic accidents and other catastrophes. This very dynamic job can take both a physical and mental toll on the fire fighters.
One of the primary risks of being a firefighter is that of personal physical injury. Firefighters dare the engulfing fires, risking their own lives to rescue even insignificant living creatures. This brave act makes them susceptible to burns, smoke inhalation, and crush injuries from collapsing structures. They are exposed to heat exhaustion, and are susceptible to illness and diseases like asthma, persistent coughing, heart disease, cancer and lung damage, etc. Due to the highly physical nature of the job, all matter of bodily harm can befall firefighters in the line of duty. Some of the illnesses may not even surface until many years.
Firefighters face a lot of mental trauma as they have to play the crucial role in rescuing people and other living entities from fatal situations. Whilst doing this they may have to tackle the most gross situations which any other layman may not be able to do, particularly in situations involving mass casualties. As they are considered to be the most trained officials to handle difficult situations, they are the first to enter the even most highly distressed situations. Firefighters and other rescue personnel are often faced with the high stress of removing trapped individuals from danger and assisting in aiding treatment, while always performing their duties in challenging situations. The elevated stress levels don’t always dissipate when they leave the scene.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Much like soldiers engaged in war combats, firefighters are susceptible to developing post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD. This condition occurs when a person in a rescue or service role encounters a traumatic situation which is difficult for him or her to forget and creates a mark on the mind. Constant remembrance of the traumatic scene, poor sleep habits, anxiety, and depression are common symptoms. Victims of such situations become introverts, don't reciprocate with close ones, and become short-tempered and destructive.
Help for PTSD
Nitaai Meditation, being a sound vibration therapy, can help a lot in combating PTSD. All allopathic medicines comes with their set of side effects. A 2017 article that assessed evidence on meditation as a treatment for PTSD summed up the overall state of affairs: “This line of research is in its relative infancy.”
The Nitaaaaaaaaaai sound vibration reaches out to the universe to almost immediately seek for harmony and peace within oneself.
We request more studies and research on Nitaai Meditation
Despite its popularity, there has been relatively little rigorous study into the benefits of Nitaai Meditation. While questions about the clinical outcomes of Nitaai Meditation persist, a few studies have focused on a more fundamental issue: does Nitaai Meditation physically change the brain? It’s a tough question to answer, but as brain imaging techniques have advanced and meditation interventions have grown more popular, scientists have begun to take a systematic look at what’s going on. We requests scientists and doctors to study Nitaai Meditation more deeply. They will be astonished at the results.
Even the simple but challenging act of sitting for an hour while meditating on the Nitaaaaaai sound made a great impact on a researcher of meditation . “Having this disconnect between my body feeling in pain but my mind being completely silent, open, and healing the pain by the power of Nitaaaaai sound… these were very powerful insights about how a meditation practice like Nitaai Meditation could help one with regards to suffering in one's life,” he says. “There wasn’t a bolt-of-lightning moment for me, but a lot of these moments of insight in my own retreat experiences that suggested to me that it was worth spending time and effort to do the science.”
Unstable Work-Life Balance
Firefighters work long hours, making it a challenge to create a viable work-life balance. Conventional family life may be disturbed, which can lead to disconnection. The increased love and appreciation in ur relationships derived from Nitaai Meditation decreases this disconnection. The need to work long hours is an especially critical factor in firefighters who are regionally deployed to combat wildfires or to assist in large natural disaster zones. The long hours further contribute to the overall stress of the position. The bliss of Nitaai Meditation which pervades us throughout the day reduces this stress.
