Rude boss becomes Appreciating boss

Swarna

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.’

 Lessons learned

  • 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.

Naran

Thank you for sharing. What we need is trust in divinity. Yours has vindicated that. Best of luck!!!

Happy New Year Guruji!!!

I am sharing this email from one of my students. Her email:

Dear Guruji,

2012 is ending and it is only few days away.  

I would like to say a BIG thanks to you. I am very very fortunate to have you as my Guruji.  Without you I don’t think I can achieve my objective and I don’t know how to show my gratitude to you.  

Despite my surroundings, I still can overcome the issue with your Divine help.  Without your Divine help I am nothing. My happy tears drop when I wrote this.

I have changed.

My son has obtained a good score. My kid’s education is improving and still on by chanting Ambika.

My husband’s attitude towards me has changed slightly. No matter, we still have arguments. But, I could chant the switch words and divine mantras. Issues can be solved and I am in peaceful mind.  

I have achieved quite a lot with your advice: If there’s a problem, stop worrying and start chanting. This is what I am doing.  

Our dearest Wolfy has helped a lot and he is still helping.   

Guruji I need your guidance in the coming years and hope to learn from you more. In addition, I want to help those who have trust and faith in this.  GURUJI! I truly love you and hope to see you if I get the opportunity. 

I want year 2013 to start great for everybody, filled with peace.

In spite of all the problems she had, her mental attitude has changed (towards faith, trust and love). I thought we all can take a lesson from her email.

Period of Silence

Kiran

Your concept for HELPING EACH OTHER is really great. It will give us joy of helping others and develop compassion for each other too.

However, we are missing you a lot.

When I think about you, a song comes in my mind: “TU PYAAR KA SAGAAR HAI TERI EK BOOND KE PYAASE HUM”. Its English translation is, “”You are an ocean of love. We are thirsty for a single drop of love”.

Hope to see you on blog. Not daily, but at least occasionally.

Thanks!

Naran

YES, I will come.

A period of silence is necessary to benefit the self and others. You can hear me in blogs postings.

Experiences Using Find Count Switch Words

(Originally this article was published in link:

http://cgull.getpaidfrom.us/2009/06/06/get-money-with-just-find-count-chant-and-money-mudra/)

I was reading Naran’s blog about money woes faced by his client, who needed money for her marriage expenses (article written by M. Govindakumar). He told them to say the word “Find Count”, which is called a “Switch Word” coined by James Mangan in his book The Search of Perfect Living. He also recommended her “Sweet Chestnut and Walnut” Bach Remedies.

The “Switch Word” and “Bach Remedies” need separate articles, in this article I will focus on the “Switch Word” I learned and tested. I doubted how one word “Find Count” can help solve the money problems, so I tried to see whether it works or not.

I did the following: I chanted “Find Count” 108 times and also did “Pran Mudra” which is also called as “Money Mudra”.

Pran Mudra

You can do this Mudra by sitting erect in a chair or you can lie down in bed and do this. The recommended time is 10 minutes but for good results do 30 to 45 minutes. You can even do this when watching TV or when you talk with others. Naran S. Balakumar says the following about the purpose of doing this Mudra:

The mental state worry links with the scarcity situation. Lack of money = Worry. Enough money on hand creates a mental state of Relaxation and Calmness. When you do this Mudra, you activate your calmness. This calmness in turn, brings money into your life.

In my case I didn’t focus on Pran Mudra but did it whenever possible, but I mainly focused on the Switch Word “Find Count”. I chanted “Find Count” 108 times and did a few repetitions in one day.

The next day I received some funds from an unexpected source. I thought it was coincidence and tried it again, similar stuff happened, I received some more funds from another source. I couldn’t believe it but it happened.

You can also try it and let me know whether it worked or not. You can either say the Switch Word alone or do them both (Pran Mudra and Switch Word).

He dared and did!

Hari Hum Meditation CD

When you inhale, chant Hari and during exhale chant Hum. When Hari enters (inhale), then Hum (ego) goes out (exhale).

This exercise is good for releasing our anger, pride and ego. A Rhythmic breathing of HARI HUM CD is available at the centre.

Case History:

I was doing Hari Hum Breathing with the CD (on inhale chant Hari, on Exhale Hum based on the speed of the mantra recited in the CD).

First five minutes I was having different thoughts circulating within. After that I felt a gush of white light filling up my entire being both inside and outside me, as if I was fully protected by the white light. I felt total silence and no thoughts were there. In between I felt that I was not breathing at all. It was a beautiful experience I want everybody to go through this experience.

Think Differently

A mechanic could not fix Shantha’s motor pump for a week. He mechanic tried various things. Nothing seems to be working. Shantha put pills of Oak (don’t be a hard worker, be a smart worker), Chestnut Bud (repeating the same stuff or mistakes without learning from the mistakes) inside the water tank.  Within a day, the motor pump was fixed.
