Liberate yourself from negative emotions

Do you know how to go beyond negative emotions such as anger, depression, greed or fear?

I’ve learned a very powerful technique from a living enlightened master, Paramahamsa Nithyananda which enables me to liberate myself from negative emotions. He said that “There is a truth from Vedanta i.e. whenever some emotions happen within your system, it is like a shower of rain that happens in your being. There are particular cells that catch these emotions. For example, the first time anger is showered on us, if we are affected for 10 mins, then the next time it will become 20 mins. By the third time, it will be 30 mins. This is how the emotion becomes stronger and stronger when we cooperate with these negative emotions in our being and we create the same type of mood in us again and again. Not only will the emotion get recorded in us, we will express the same thing on others like our kids and people whom we work with.

Why is this so?

Since the basic quality of life is reproduction and expansion, this is the survival instinct governed by the 2nd chakra (swadhisthana) – the fear energy center within our body. Reproduction is governed by the 1st chakra (mooladhara) – the sex energy center in our body. Both these energy centers are closely connected.

By the law of nature, the cells that catch the anger emotion will start reproducing and each cell creates another 5-6 more cells. Next time, when the anger shower happens in you, all these new cells will catch the same emotion and becomes the size of the original cells. Now, they will also start reproducing. By the 3rd time when the anger shower happens again, all these cells catch the emotion and start storing it. This is why every time when we are showered with the same emotion, it becomes stronger and we lose control of that emotion.

When a particular negative emotion rises in you, just don’t cooperate with it. Let your body not go behind that emotion whether it is anger, irritation or depression or lust or fear or anything. Within 3 or 4 times, you will be liberated from that emotion. You will have the key now in your hand – how not to be taken away but that emotion? How to be centered in your Self? Whether it is anger or fear or greed, it gets more power only if your body also cooperates with it. With whatever emotion your body moves, that emotion gets recorded inside your system. And that emotion will become much more intense.

People think that life runs on fear and greed. Mahavira, a great enlightened Jain master from India says that “When you come to planet earth, you bring enough energy to fulfil all your desires. You already have enough fuel. You always think – if I stop fuelling myself with fear and greed, I may stop working.”

The truth is we have enough potential energy to maintain ourselves and achieve what we want in life without fear and greed. We just need to trust that we don’t need fear or greed to run our life. There is already a reserve of fuel within us, we just need to learn how to tap into this endless energy source through spiritual knowledge and practices. Namaste 😀

Many People, Many Paths

This month we celebrate the Global Peace Day on 21st September. I discovered that to bring a true global peace, the world needs to know the 2 important truths. First truth – it is inner peace that leads to global peace. This means we all need to be healed from our past wounds and hurt. (see my article ). The second truth – As there are many students, many paths exist for Self-Realization. This understanding will remove the intolerance for co-existence of other faiths completely!

In support of the second truth,  I would like to share a particular chapter of the teaching of Bhagavad Gita. Bhagavad Gita is a sacred scripture of the Vedic culture, it is called the sruti in Sanksrit, meaning something that is heard. Bhagavad Gita is written into the Hindu epic Mahabharata called a purana, an ancient tale. It is part of a story about a dialogue between Lord Krishna and Arjuna – a dialogue between man and God. It is the ultimate practical teaching on the inner science of spirituality.

7 Timeless Tips To Have Fulfilling Relationship With Your Child

After I got back from the Inner Awakening retreat in end December, lately I’ve experienced a breakthrough in my relationship with my son, Kai which really made me feel so fulfilled. Our relationship had always been very loving, friendly with mutual respect but there were times when I would lose my ‘cool’ in anger with his laziness or insensitive behaviors. Before the start of the retreat, I told him that I would drop my anger engram (engraved memory).

During the retreat, I was given the 4 great tattwas (spiritual values) of Integrity, Authenticity, Responsibility and Enriching Others, just working on myself with these truths, I saw the anger engram started to lose power over me. There is a constant awareness within to allow me to witness my thoughts and words. It is as if I’ve entered into a new space and now I am beginning to see auspicious things are gathering around me. Besides attracting new business opportunities, I could see some of my close relationships also got healed as I started living these truths.
