Sometimes things seem to get worse before it gets better. But in getting worse the situation tests us and strengthens us in ways we cannot imagine or know.
- All we need to learn is to sit still and watch our mind as the fluid situation morphs, and shifts.
- We learn to see our fear, guilt, and our negative tendencies.
- We learn to be watchful, not restful. We understand that growth, life, is characterized by changes.
- Situations morph rapidly. We realize that there is really no beginning or end, it is our mind that creates the illusion.
We learned these from our own experience detailed below:
One man, thirty machines and endless working hours
Last year, we contacted Naran when my husband was going through lot of challenges at work. He had been in the new job for two years and doing very well.
Then, the supervisor began adding new machines to the lab. It was one man and 15 machines to begin with. It was manageable.
Each machine was specialized and the chemicals cost a lot of money. If experiments failed, it would be difficult to make up for the loss of valuable samples and the wastage of time and money. It was challenging to finish jobs that were lined up on all of the machines.
The lab ended up with 30 machines and one man. Working continuously made my husband tired and unable to think. And he began to work on weekends too. To make the situation worse, his supervisor began to shout at him.
My husband was threatened that he will be fired
In May last year, the Director called my husband and threatened to remove him. No reasons were given and he was shouted at him for 30 minutes.
My husband was shaken and could not understand what had happened. Naran asked us to chant “I AM A BEING OF VIOLET FIRE. I AM PURITY OF GOD DESIRES.”
Naran also asked us to chant and write— “OM GAM GANAPATHAYE NAMAHA”.
We have continued to do it every day from then on.
The director apologized
Within a week of this chanting, the Director came and apologized to my husband for his outburst. He told my husband that he hope that my husband would not quit because of the outburst.
We were surprised and grateful at the turn of events. We continued to write the Ganesh mantra and be relaxed.
Surprise became Shock
In June, my husband was called again and the Director said he would put him on probation for the job. This really disturbed my husband and he couldn’t sleep or eat.
Naran advised us to write (the Bach Flower Remedies) – “ELM, WATER VIOLET, HOLLY, VINE, HORNBEAM” in a piece of paper and keep it in my husband’s pocket and do the same in another paper and keep it under the pillow. And Naran asked me to chant (Bach Flower Remedies) “RED CHESTNUT, VINE”.
And to improve the working atmosphere, Naran advised my husband to chant the switch words, “LOVE, THANK, TOGETHER DIVINE”. My husband began to juggle these new responsibilities. His job was reduced to 75% time from 100%. However, he had to work for 100% of the time.
Now comes a big surprise
Six months later, we had a surprise when the administrators asked people to submit their job descriptions and responsibilities for comparing it with what people were getting paid for across the nation. My husband’s position was also called for reclassification. Naran asked us to chant: “GENTIAN, LARCH, THANK, TOGETHER DIVINE ORDER COUNT NOW DONE”.
Back to square one – problems started again
On December 10th, we returned to the same critical situation when, my husband’s Director called him and made him sign a memorandum saying he would fix all machines within December 20th. My husband had been working with the companies for months and nothing had been resolved. The Director was aware of all this.
Naran advised us to download a picture of MUSTARD (Bach flower) and PINK TOURMALINE (gem remedy) and paste both on the name of my husband. And also chant the switch words “TOGETHER CHANGE NOW”.
Everything went smoothly like a whistle
Thanks to these divine interventions, the deadline passed off smoothly without an incident.
But the biggest challenge was negotiating the annual review that was due at the end of the month. The annual review would determine if he would stay or go. In the current economic market, it was very hard to land another job. Living in the US without citizenship meant that we had to show continuous employment status. We continued to chant TOGETHER CHANGE NOW and write the Ganapathi mantra daily.
Annual review came on the right time
The annual review was postponed to January. It so happened that Divine took care of everything so beautifully. On Thursday, his immediate supervisor completed my husband’s annual review and gave him glowing references. They also discussed about my husband getting more help in the lab, and reinstating his job to 100% from 75% that he is currently on.
Three days later, the Director who was shouting at him all the time, said that there was no need for another review and he had nothing to add or change to the review already performed, and he agreed with everything. Everyone who knows the Director says this is nothing short of a miracle!
The director accepted his failings openly
Last week, the Director called my husband privately and told him that his personality was that of a person who magnified the negative. From his interactions with my husband he is realizing that he had to appreciate everything positive and not pay so much importance to the negative.
My husband said he politely thanked him and left, but inside he was shouting ‘Together Divine’ in a deafening crescendo. He felt so happy that he didn’t have to say a word for this change to come over! The flowers, gems, the switch words are so beautiful and so powerful!
We successfully sailed through the stressful phase
We are grateful for the divine to have helped us through this difficult and stressful phase. The chants helped us stay focused and positive and not panic. We found time daily to chant ‘Together Divine’ and write ‘Om Gam Ganapathayae Namaha.’
- We understand and are grateful that our future unfolds in small clear steps.
- We have the opportunity to be watchful, present and steer the direction of our life.
- Naran taught us patiently and gently to keep our mind open to the gifts that every situation brings in and not carry our old patterns with us.
We are continuing to learn.
Thank you for sharing. What we need is trust in divinity. Yours has vindicated that. Best of luck!!!

Whenever I find any overwhelming emotions in the form of anger or hurt, I find saying the switch words, “TOGETHER BOW CONCEDE ADJUST FORGIVE PRAISE THANKS” very useful. If I simply look at the feeling and say those words, the emotions simply vanish away.
Look at the emotions and say, “I release that part of my mind that is angry. I activate that part of mind that forgives”.
Another example is, “I release that part of me that vomits. I activate that part of mind that stops vomiting”.
I find this technique very useful not only to release my anger, but to do anything that I find difficult to do, say sleeping early.
I said for a few times, “I release that part, which is resisting to sleep now. I activate the part that brings in deep sleep”.
I was able to sleep well and early.
You can also do like this, with whomever you are having problems. For example, “I release the part which is resisting to be harmonious with. I activate the part that brings in harmony, peace and love with so and so”.
This way you can do for any aspect of life. The reason it works is, we have several parts operating– each part taking us in a different direction. The moment we become aware of it, the healing happens faster.
After employing the technique for a while, one thing I notice however is a sense of fear.
When one skin (emotion) is peeled off, another skin (another emotion) appears. Affirm, “I align the fearing mind with my fearless part”.
Post-Script (R Mohan)
While I was getting help from Naran (for my anger), during the same time, I provided the same suggestions to M (for her hurt): http://healbyanimalspirits.wordpress.com/2013/07/28/entwined-in-love/#comment-2057
Naran says that we come across people with the same problems as we are facing then. So, we should not worry whether we are providing right solutions to them or not as our solutions apply to them as well.

One more miracle wanted to share with all, by using switch words.
We were looking out for another house for rent as previous owner asked us to vacate. Since the builder is not paying any rent to us, we are shelling out the rent from our pocket. So did not want to go through the broker, as we wanted to avoid the brokerage.
We had to shift to new rented house by 1st Jan. I was chanting “CERATO MIMULUS FIND DIVINE HOUSE”. We got the house through a common friend. We have got a very positive energy house.
Thank you so much Mr. Naran.
Cerato and Mimulus are Bach Flower Remedies, while Find and Divine are switch words. House (for rent) is the objective she wanted to achieve.
Cerato: when you are searching for something – here house for rent, e.g., searching for a good doctor, address etc.
Mimulus: You want something within your budget. A common use could be when you bargain for an auto fare. You will pay the right fare and the driver will ask for the right fare.
Find: to find the house
Divine: by luck or chance

My friend Dilli called me. He was returning my call about me enquiring about the accident he had recently.
I asked him for the details. He said he had a bone cracked in the right ankle. Immediately, I remembered a case history of one of Naran’s students: http://healbymindbodymessages.wordpress.com/2009/05/08/reversing-the-decision-to-marry/.
So, I asked Dilli whether he had taken some major decision recently. He said yes. He was planning to sell the house he owns now and buy a new one that is closer to his in-laws place.
I requested him to reverse the decision. He remarked that the day after he took the decision to buy the new house, he met with this accident. Therefore, he had already postponed buying the new house.
I replied that because he had reversed his decision, even though it was forced by his body, he is sure to reap some good benefits in the near future. He remarked in an amusing fashion that his body has already done some good thing. Within a week after the accident, he found out the government is planning to make a highway closer to the house he owns currently. It means that the value of the house is sure to go up.
With my great enthusiasm to prove to him that Balakumar’s theories are great and profound , as my friend always questions such thoughts and alternate healing systems, I promised him that he will be getting some more benefits as he has listened to his body totally. Probably I told him that he will be approached by his fellow union members to become the next secretary of the union. If it happens within next six months, I told him that he has to give me a treat. Otherwise, I will give him and his family one.
He said he will give me a treat immediately, as he has already been asked to stand for the election which is coming soon after!!!
I was dumb-founded. For a person, even though he doesn’t believe in alternate therapies, when he follows the rules (of the body), things happen to him, in fact more than one could expect in a given situation.
I am not arrogant to say so that I follow the theories. I am just happy that this proves not only what Naran was speaking about all these days, but also that if we are a good student of our bodies, then our decisions will be right and our life will be smooth by all means.
