Madhyam



This is Madhyam. In Sanskrit, Madhyam means crane. Ma, short form, is the 4th note in Indian Classical Music, which also corresponse with the Heart chakra. If you read my earlier post, you will know that Lat adopted Ma 2 years ago. And being Lat, the musical one, her dog must also have some music elements. But the real reason why he was named Ma is because of the M on his forehead.
Ma is a mixed breed. His father is a pure dalmation while his mother is a terrier mixed with stray dog.
Ma has got the intelligence of his father. He learnt the basic commands pretty early. He knows only a few commands, sit, stay, down and paw.
Ma is an escapist. He loves to make holes on the fence and run out of the house. But no matter how far he ran, he will always come back. That is the good thing about him.
One day, we found a bedsheet in the garden, a few left slippers and some junk. Ma, in his quest, has brought back our neighbours' belongings. That was last year.
Ma is a good dog nowadays. He seldom venture out. He eats everything under the sun, anything that he can find, from dead lizards, to dead birds. Very adventurous and live up to his name Ma, the confident and brave crane.
Oh, he can also sing. Howls musically. When he was younger, he will stick his ears out to listen to music, especially when Lat is singing.
He loves to be scratched. Under his chin, on his head, behind his ears. He will come and nudge your hand, so that you can scratch him. Very 'manja'.
Many times, due to his adventurous nature, he has got himself stuck. His collar stuck on the fence and was left in rain till Lat came home to rescue him.
I still remember one day, together with his leash, he escape to the vacant yard behind Lat's house and his long leash was stuck in between some branches. He was crying for help and it took us sometime to hear him because it was raining. Lat had to climb over the fence, up the slippery hill and cut off the branches to rescue him.
So, Madhyam, the adventurous one, brings a lot of joy to our lives. He will be turning 2 on 12 December 2008.

How to make yogurt with EasiYo Yogurt Maker with and without the sachets

Disclaimer:  This is not an advertisement.

First Attempt After months of not looking paying attention to what I have been putting into my stomach, GERD came back few weeks ago.  Thank God it wasn't that bad.  Just 1 puking session and that's it.
Since then, I have been very careful at the food I am putting into my mouth, looking out for trigger food and what's good for GERD.
Found that actually yogurt is very good for GERD.  So, long story short, I invested in EasiYo Yogurt Maker.
Actually, before that, I was thinking of ways to make my own yogurt.  I did it before and it was successful.  But after reading reviews on EasiYo Yogurt Maker and so many said it's good and easy and the yogurt was super delicious, in the end, I was in.  RM139 with starter pack.

You can find this in selected Carings and Vitacare pharmacy.  I bought mine at Damansara Uptown.
1. First put room temperature water or cold water into the EasiYo yogurt container.  Fill it half way through only.

2. The…

Matka pot treatment - Night 1

I started the matka pot treatment last night.  Been feeling a lot of left agnya catch lately, so thought that it is high time to do a matka pot treatment.  Here is what we need:
7 limes (I heard in Belgium, they used 7 lemons, so the pot that they used is so big and they have a hard time trying to dispose the pot after the 7 nights).  Cut the top of the limes to expose a bit of the flesh.
7 chillies.  Remove the top of the chillies (I don't know what you call, stem or stalk).  I used small chillies so that they can fit into the matka pot.
1 matka pot (here in Malaysia we used claypot that they cooked claypot rice, glazed inside so that it will not leak)
Vibrated water
So, you put everything into the pot and vibrate in front of Shri Mataji's photo.  Pray that the matka pot will absorb all the catches and negativities.  Then place it on the left side of the bed.  I put it under the bed but you can also put it on a side table on your left side.  Just be careful not to spill the …

Information for pregnant Sahaja Yoginis

I have decided to gather all information for pregnant Sahaja Yoginis here.  This is probably not conclusive, so please feel free to add on if you have anymore inputs.  To read more about it, please go to amruta.org.  
I guess the experience varies from individual to individual.  But I was very sensitive to vibrations and negativity when I was in my first trimester.  So much so that sometimes I have to do 2-3 times footsoak in a row in order to feel better.  But it gets better in the second trimester.

As for havan, I was told that pregnant ladies can attend havan but have to sit far from the fire and don't sit too long.  This was advice by the Vashi doctors.  But my own experience, in which I attended one havan, I didn't feel good after that.  It's just my personal feelings about it as I was ultra-sensitive.  But I read some yoginis wrote that pregnant ladies should not attend havan altogether.  So, it really depends.  I guess you could always check vibrations to find out…
