From the “I Love Myself” Workbook
Do the following exercise
What should you eat and what you should not eat. Make a list and follow that to the core.
Sometimes body does not accept certain types of food. Yet, we try to eat the same food again and again.
Instead you have to prepare a list of items which you can eat and list out all those which your body does not accept.
When you prepare the list you are giving a commitment to your body and you need to follow that.
- Another thing is that whatever ways you behave outside we behave in the same manner with the body too. “I should not say this because the other person will be wounded”. Thinking like this, to please him, we tell a lie.
When you can’t meet a commitment, don’t make one
Suppose someone invites us for wedding. To please him we say that we will come definitely. But, we do not go to the wedding at all. I have also committed such mistakes.
Later on I found out that when I say something it is not a commitment to that person but it is a commitment to the God. I questioned myself, “Am I cheating the universe”?
Then I decided to tell the truth. If I am able to go I will say yes. Otherwise, I will say that I will not be able to make it.
Like that if you tell me that you are meeting me next week then it means that you are not making a commitment to me but you are committing to the Universe.
Commitment to our body
If one food is not being accepted by the body, we tell that I should not eat this food again. This is a commitment that you are giving to the Universe.
Next time when we eat that food again then we are breaking our own commitment.
The Universe is always watching all of us because it is the web of life. If I have to get my food at 1 p.m., it is already decided that it will come from a particular person.
By restraining yourself by not eating certain food, you are honoring your own body.
We have left one of our flats for rents. It has one mango tree and another one a coconut tree. In the past, the coconuts have fallen down and broke the windows, thought nobody got hurt. We are worried now that it may hurt the tenant.
We are wondering whether to cut the trees or to put a shed. If we put the shed, then there will be less visibility and air. However, we don’t want the cut the trees, which had been there with us for more than 35 years.
Trees are our life. It provides not just air, but keeps the ground in one place, providing stability of land. Because, so much trees are felled these days, we get earth quakes, Tsunamis and floods as nature is trying to correct the imbalances created by human beings.
In addition, never a coconut will fall directly over a human being, while the dried trunks might fall on us. Arrange a person to remove these trunks once in three months or so.
Trees are our blessings from god. Don’t fell it.
I want to cut a tree which is causing a lot of nuisance
I need some mantra or remedy to cut a tree which is causing a lot of nuisance. Our neighbors are not allowing us to cut it. It is on the road somewhere in between our gate and neighbor’s gate.
The problem is that the dried leaves, branches and many bird droppings fall in our compound. First of all no water in our area and it becomes a problem to clean all these things.
Chant “SWEET CHESTNUT, ROCK ROSE, WILD ROSE” for getting water.
By all means, clean your house of the birds’ excreta, by chanting “WILLOW, CHANGE DIVINE ORDER”.
Don’t fell the tree.
Every time we forgive someone,
We talk the language of God
We activate our own divine part.
It also helps others to see us in a new light.
If there is no forgiveness, then there is no understanding.
If there is no understanding, then there is no healing.
If there is no healing, then you will remain incomplete forever.
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
