Meditation relieves stress

I was really stressed when I was at my previous job.  Everyday was a battle, especially from February to August.  The work was interesting but the boss was even more interesting.  Work weekends, work overtime, rush and rush, get scolded if poor performance, work and work and no benefits.

As a result of that, my hair was dropping significantly, I have more gray hair, my face was filled with pimples, sleep deprived and numerous health issues.  Due to the hectic schedule, I was not paying enough time to clear myself and meditate.  I took my health for granted.  I was not paying attention to anything else, except to work, work and work. The best part is I don't even notice that I was on a high stress level.  All I care was to finish my work on time and ensure that it is to near perfection.  I thought to myself, "I am still young, no problem, I can endure all of this."  I was already getting signs that I was imbalance (like all those symptoms mentioned above), but I just ignore everything.

Then I quit and came to this new job.  

My new job is the total opposite of my old job.  There's work to do, but no one is breathing down my neck.  I can still surf, I can do my work at my own pace and just enjoy and relax.  But I have to admit that I am a workaholic.  When there's nothing to do, I feel bored.  When someone gave me things to do, my heart will be jumping in happiness.  When someone asked me to solve some accounting issues, I will be in cloud nine.

I have more time to meditate and do clearing.  

This is what I noticed after a few months of working here.  My hair is still dropping but not to the alarming level as last time and new hairs are growing.  I still have gray hair but not as much as before.  I was told that if I think too much I get more gray hair.  Well, maybe now I don't have to think so much., especially at work  My face is cleared of pimples, except some tiny ones.  My health have improved tremendously and I am putting on weight. 

A few days ago, unknowingly, I did an experiment.  I woke up late and as a result of that, I missed my morning meditation.  I went to work as usual.  I started thinking and thinking while working and all sorts of thoughts enter my head.  Negative thoughts, thoughts that I have created in my head, like someone is talking behind my back, why does this person talk to me so harshly, why I can't seem to get this thing work out, I should have said this to that person, What?! You think you are so good?, poor me, why do I always get treated badly, the list goes on and on.  I couldn't focus, was feeling very annoyed and irritated, feels like I was going to burst out any moment.  'It's one of those days' or 'I woke up on the wrong side of the bed' day, as people said.  I just cannot think straight.

The next day, I told myself that I am not going to miss another meditation, so I woke up on time.  I had a nice meditation, in which I was able to achieve thoughtless awareness, although it lasted only a short time.  I went to work as usual.  This time, whenever there's negative thoughts entering my head, I can push it away and was able to think rationally. 

What a big difference when we start our morning right.  So, I feel that stress is brought upon by ourselves, not by our co-workers, bosses, people on the street, cars on the road, ants on your table, etc, etc.  When we meditate, we are able to balance ourselves and stay balance the whole day.  Even if there's some unpleasant things that happened, it will only last a few seconds.  You know how to brush it away.

In support of starting your morning right.  Meditate today!

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…
