“Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”
I went in, out of curiosity. It was free, courtesy Bramah Kumaris. Bramah Kumaris is a cult where they teach about the spiritual side of our life. The only condition to watch this free movie was a simple registration process. The lady at the counter exclaimed when she saw my address. Oh, we are neighbours! One of our centres is on your street. You are at 57, and we are at 23. She asked me to feel free to come and join their seven days free meditation course AKA 7 days Raj Yoga course. Anyway, we watched this superb movie and came back home. By that time, I had made up my mind that I will not get a better opportunity than this if I wish to learn meditation.
I was all pumped up on Tuesday and lightly asked my 12 years old daughter, whether she wants to join me. I was over the moon when she quickly said, Yes, why not. Now, it is a tiny thing but your confidence catapults to a new height if your kids support you when you try to do something new. We reached the centre at 6 PM, and Sister Gabriel welcomed us. We were roughly 15 of us, and the class began with sister Gabriel’s proactive introduction to Raj Yoga. And that was followed by 30 minutes of guided meditation. It was out of the world, sensational experience. Meditation was my first step towards spiritual life. I completed seven days of Raj Yoga Course and felt very satisfied with the outcome. The atmosphere of these centres is beyond any imagination. So much of compassion, near ego-free lifestyle and sometimes, you wonder whether these people ever get angry or sad.
Deepak Chopra’s literature convinced me of the fact that everything in the world is all about energy. All that exists, be it a physical matter, an ideology, a feeling or anything else that you can name, are the result of vibrations or energy. Now if everything is energy, then every frequency of the vibration must be giving different results. That result might be the change in the properties of matter, change in our behaviour, change in the results of our hard work or anything that you can conceive off. So, it is the frequencies of the energy that controls the world.
And that is what Mantra Yoga is all about.
I did further research on various bands of frequency range and found that our conscious, subconscious, relaxed and sleeping state of minds depends on the band of frequency that is governing the mind. These bands of frequencies are categorized as Alpha, Beta, Delta and Theta.
Alpha: 7-12 Hz. We feel relaxed in this state, and this state is excellent for creativity.
Beta: 13-40 Hz. We are active in this state of mind.
Delta: 0-4 Hz. We are in our sleeping state.
Theta: 4-7 Hz. This state is defined as a meditative state.
If you do your research about theta state, you will come to know that this frequency range of 4-7 Hz triggers our subconscious mind and that is a piece of great news because Law Of Attraction has proven that your affirmations work most effectively when they come out of your subconscious state of mind. Anyway, I further googled and found a few free MP3 audio files having the sound of frequencies ranging from 4 to 7 Hz. I listened to MP3 files using my headphone. And that was my Eureka moment. How effective will be mantra chanting in theta state? Nobody has tried it yet. So, finally, my experiments with Mantras has begun. So far, I have only followed what others said, but this will be my first experiment of my own.
I wrote this post on 18th July and left it with a note that I will complete the post after I see the manifestation of my new experiment. I think the time has come to finish this post.
As I had written in the beginning, the period between 2005 and 2007 was pretty bad for me. In addition to all the wrong things, I had a small heart attack in 2006. Well, last week I was checking the outgoings in my bank account, and I saw that my insurance premium has gone to a whopping $450 per month. Here in New Zealand, it keeps on going up every year, especially if you have acquired a new health-related issue. I decided to call them to reduce my insurance cover.
The help desk guy told me that your insurance covers you for life, trauma and partial disability. I asked to reduce my life cover and remove injury and partial disability cover. He said, why do you want to remove the trauma cover because that is the one that most of the people claim. I told him about my heart attack in 2006, and he was surprised why I did not claim it. And he sent me a few forms to fill and said all your medical records would be available in your hospital, get them from there, attach it with the claim form and email me back. It is difficult for the bank to accept a claim after ten years, but there is nothing wrong in trying. I did what he asked me to do and forgot about it as he was also looking a bit doubtful anyway. I thought he is just trying to be helpful. Nevertheless, they asked for more papers related to my health, to which I said, it is impossible to dig those records after 10-15 years, and I am not going to waste my time. For me, that was the end of my communication with the bank regarding my claim.
But guess what! I get a phone call from the bank that my claim has been accepted, and they will let me know the details, once the payment is processed. And can you guess what the amount was? It was whopping $110000. Now, many of you might say, miracles do take place, or it was a sheer coincidence of calling the right person at the right time or something like that. But I look at this incident differently. When we so-called knowledgeable people do not understand any phenomenon of our universe, we give it a name like a miracle, coincidence, luck, fate etc. But tell me one thing, when the whole world, moon, sun, stars etc. are moving and existing with so much of accurate mathematical precision, will it not be stupidity to say, Oh! It was just a sheer miracle! Is it not being too dumb to say that?
Whatever you might say, but I attribute this so-called “Miracle” to the power of mantras.
I come to two conclusions:
1) Chanting of Mantras for inner peace have a more pronounced effect in the theta state.
2) When I created the following two videos, my mantras were further empowered by creative visualization.
