Surrendering to Paramchaitanya

Few days ago, I listened to Shri Mataji's puja talk, on Paramchaitanya in 1989.  I can't find the transcript of this talk in Amruta because I wanted to share some of Her words here.

So, I am going to write something off my head, hopefully not wrong.  Shri Mataji said that Paramchaitanya is watching us and is everywhere.  Sometimes things happened, sometimes things don't happen.  It's for us to learn, whatever is the reason.  So, if we know this principle, then we will be happy with our life.  We have to believe in this power of Paramchaitanya.

So, one morning, while driving to work, I looked up the sky and thought to myself, let's surrender to Paramchaitanya today.  

I was a little early to work and stopped at the traffic lights right before turning into my office, as usual the jam was pretty long, uneventful.  I left my house earlier today because I wanted to leave work sharp at 5.30pm.

Few days ago, my senior manager who took the same route as me, said that he took a 'short-cut', not really short, but no jam and so time taken is lesser.  So, I thought to myself, hmmm, since I am a little early today, why don't I give it a try?

It was a nice drive along quiet roads.  Sure enough, there were no cars.  I thought, hmmm, this is a gem.  No one knows this secret road yet.  I could do this more often in the future.  Finally, after some nice view, I reached the crossroads where I have to cross over to turn to the opposite direction in order to get to my office.  But the jam was pretty long there and it was difficult to cross and a car was already waiting behind me.  So, I turned along the road instead and continue driving, hoping I can make a U-turn somewhere.  But all the road signs said, NO U-TURN.  I drove straight and finally came to a MAJOR JUNCTION and was SUPER JAM.  

Then I realised, OMG, I reached the infamous junction, favourite for jams, 7 days a week.  I don't know how I got there.  This is one road that everyone wants to avoid.

So having no choice and can't turn back to that road, I have to continue driving.  I drove along the jam and make a u-turn and have to take another long road back to my office and the consequence of my actions was late for work by half an hour!!!  I reached office at 9am when I could have easily arrived at 8.15am.  Work starts at 8.30am.

Since I was already late and my usual parking spot taken, so I have to park much further.  Hey, Kavita who is sitting next to me, also parked here, which is unusual.  So I thought to myself, never mind, today I will have a company to walk with me.

Towards the end of the work day, there was heavy thunderstorm.  Colleagues who left sharply at 5.30pm was stuck in a jam trying to get out of the office compound, not moving for 45 minutes.  Since Kavita and I were late, we have to stay on and leave later.  So, those colleagues advised us not to leave office.  Bad jam everywhere.  Everyone is stucked!!!

We stayed on until 8pm and since I have a someone to accompany me to walk to the car, that was fine.  And guess what, the roads were so smooth at 8pm and I reached home by 8.30pm.  Those who actually left at 5.30pm reached half an hour earlier, i.e 8pm.

So, when I sat down and think about the power of Paramchaitanya, something are not meant for us to know.  And things happened and some things don't happen as per our wish, but in the end, it was for our benevolent.  We have to look at the big picture to see this.

Try it today!  Surrendering your all to the power of Paramchaitanya and let it take you, wherever it wants.  You will be surprise and life is not the same anymore.

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…
