To Create a Better Future Look Back and Not Forward

When you do the healing, you heal your goals. For example, you may chant the Ambika mantra on behalf of your children, isn’t it?

Yes children are our FUTURE. If they do well then it means we have done well too.

Children are our future, which means we are the PRESENT. Then who is our past?

It is our parents. Parents are our PAST.

You heal your present to heal your future. In the same way, when you heal your PAST – your parents – you heal your PRESENT, and in turn your FUTURE – yours as well as your children.

Therefore, to create a better future, don’t look forward, but look back. It is a safer and a better solution than you have so far followed in your life.

Getting Ready for the Next Job

Reply to Suja by Naran S. Balakumar

Read your mail.

You have not received a job offer yet, in spite of having completed your post-graduation as a rank holder nine months ago. I know that you have done your diploma in Business Management too.  Congratulations!

You have mentioned that you are feeling frustrated, dejected, getting angry, as well as blaming god and others for your situation. Given the situation this is the normal reaction we can expect from anyone.

Think Differently

What did you learn in your Management course? One has to think differently to find a solution. Therefore, think differently. Find out whether your thoughts and feelings are energizing you or they are draining you. These feelings will not only keep you in the same state of not getting a job, but will make your life stagnate too.

Get Into the State of Employment  

Since you are a mathematics student, I will explain this in the form of a mathematical equation.

X = Y + 10, where X is the event of not getting a job and Y is your present state of mind. You do not have a direct influence over X. But, you can change Y into Y-1 or Y-2., which will in turn affect and change X. I mean, if you change your state of mind (Y), X cannot remain the same. Because Y has changed, X has to change too. Thus a state of unemployment will change into a state of employment. 

Utilize the Lean Period

Think differently. You have to utilize this dark period. Accept that this period is necessary for you. May be the learning is not yet over for you. Academically it may be over. But, learning has to be continued. Learn something new in this period. You need not pay for a course. You can pick up lot of stuff from Internet. Learn something more about subjects that are allied to your specialisation. Enjoy the interviews that come your way. You will learn what you don’t know. Fill up those gaps. Learn to listen.

Increase your self-esteem

You can learn a lot by observing people. Learn to understand your existing relationships – with your family members, friends, and relatives. Move with them closely, express and communicate with love as if you were meeting them for the first time and as though this would be the last time you are going to meet them. Contribute something to them lovingly. Help them in any manner you can. It need not be financial. This will boost your self-confidence and enthusiasm. Normally one feels confident and enthusiastic only after getting the job. Now, you are acquiring this state before getting the job.

Period of Relaxation

This will also make you a better person. You will learn how to relate to your colleagues and superiors. When you are ready to learn anything new, then this period would become a period of relaxation, instead of a period of frustration.

Self-Mastery is the Key

Learn about yourself. Understanding your mental state will be highly beneficial. Write a journal of the emotions you are feeling for one week. Also write about your reactions to events as well as your behavior. Watch your emotions and thought patterns. Put everything in writing. To your surprise, you will find a pattern in your behavior. This is your mental state in the past. This is going to be the mental state for your future if you don’t make changes to yourself. Circumstances may change. Events may change. But this is you.

Fulfillment At last

Therefore, utilize this period to effect a change where necessary. Release what you don’t need and develop more what you need. This self-rectification will help you in self-actualization. Self-actualization is nothing but self-fulfillment in life. Job is offered by god. The employer is only a tool. God is your employer. He will always do what is right and is required by you.

Chant OM NAMO BAGAVATHE.

Best of luck

Can I hold onto my job?

Handling Problems with ‘I am sorry mantra’

Think about the problem or write the problem in a piece of paper and close it with both hands. Then affirm, “I am sorry. Please forgive me. Love, Thanks, Divine”.  We will come out of the current state of mind. Then the solution will appear automatically and effortlessly as well.

Was about to be fired – a Case History

Sri is a software engineer, who was on the firing list. His manager warned him and told him to somehow get into a project. He chanted the ‘I am sorry’ mantra 20 times twice a day. Within a week they said he needs to go on a business trip to Europe and asked him to get ready for it.

He got worried that he had to go after August 28th as he had some personal function to attend on August 24th. Again he resorted to the ‘I am sorry’ mantra and he flew to Europe, exactly on August 28th.

He is now quite convinced that he can handle any problems with ‘I am sorry mantra’.

Job Scare Part II

(Continued from Job Scare article, posted two weeks back in this blog)

Balakumar: Narayanan from Hyderabad came and met me today.

Narayanan

Thanks to your statement, “The God has given the job to you, to take care of your material comfort. The company is a channel created by God. He is your employer.  When you accept this fact, you will never lose your job.” has changed my attitude.

I have become so confident. Have no more fears about my job.  Therefore, I guess I am still in the job. My place is so secure now. I use the same technique in handling some other problems in my life too.

A person got the loan and his sister had to send the security document from US. He is a known customer. Previously on two occasions he kept his word. However, this time unfortunately he could not send the required document even after a delay of more than 20 days.

The pressure from my superiors was so annoying.  I just told them, “Be quite. I know how to get the required document. Please allow me to work in a relaxed mood.”

Then I left the whole affair to God and stopped phoning up the customer. The next day, we received the document. The courier misplaced it somewhere. They tracked it and delivered it to us.

The wisdom I gained out of this situation is, “When we give up trying God will help us.”

This is my practical experience. Thanks to you for changing my whole life.

Job Scare

Narayan from Hyderabad came to meet Naran S Balakumar. He is 27 and working in the BPO industry. The reason behind his visit was that he is scared of losing his job. As per the recommendation of his friend Raju, he consulted Balakumar.

Naran S. Balakumar to Narayan

The God has given the job to you, to take care of your material comfort. The company is a channel created by God. He is your employer.  When you accept this fact, you will never lose your job.

Even if you lose it, then it is a message from God that a new job is waiting for you out there somewhere. Don’t be afraid, as everything will work out for your good. It’s Divine’s Will.

When you accept this fact whole heartedly, you will never be sitting idle at home, even for a single day. Let us say there is a gap between two jobs then the message from god is, “take rest, and learn something that will be useful for your next job!”

Chant Mimulus* (fear of losing job) and Gentian* (to avoid any regression) and Walnut* (to feel secured) for the next few days. Everything will happen for good.

Narayan said good bye to Naran with a relieved face.

 

*Please note: Mimulus and Gentian are Bach Flower Remedies. For more details, refer www.naranheal.com
