Faith can move Mountains

Faith is the Key - Life transformed by the grace of Mohanji

“I held you the day you were born.”

These were the words Mohanji uttered as I left my meeting with Him for the first time in Shirdi, 2016.

Looking back at my life prior to meeting Him physically, I now know that He has held my hand, protecting me from the hedonistic life that I led.

My dad passed away when I was 5. Since then, life has been an emotionally turbulent ride. There was always a sadness looming in my heart. I’ve battled with depression from a young age. It is a numbness, a heaviness that I have felt most of my life.

It (negativity) loves to keep one stuck, stagnant and seemingly safe. Except that I did not realise that I was depressed, as I filled my life with parties and alcohol to keep the sadness at bay.

Depression - It's Symptoms
Depression and it’s Symptoms (Credits: olatorera.com/)

After my divorce in 2015, everything that I had suppressed since I was a girl came to the surface. I did not want to burden anyone with my feelings so l tried to cope by myself. Lost, empty and feeling very alone, I had become accustomed to certain emotions as it was all I had ever known. It had become normal. Lifeless…dead…debilitating.

WHEN THE DISCIPLE IS READY, THE MASTER APPEARS

Faith is the Key - Life transformed by Grace of Mohanji

During the month of April 2016, my mum mentioned that a spiritual Master- Mohanji, would be visiting Durban for a program. I visited the Mohanji website but it did not spark my interest then. I wished my mum well and told her to enjoy the program. My mum experienced profound changes that year and started regularly attending the programs at the Datta Tapovan ashram in Durban.

Fast forward to September 2016, two weeks before my 37th birthday, I received a call from my mum. She mentioned that an appointment had been confirmed for a healing session for me with Swami Bhaktananda – Mohanji’s senior disciple. I was annoyed because I did not want to fly to Durban, but she urged me to come. I’m so grateful that she did – thank you, mummy.

He knew I needed help. There is no other explanation.

My healing was so intense and scary – nothing had prepared me for that experience! I left the ashram feeling relieved, grateful and not a little confused. Later, I realised that Mohanji must have orchestrated everything.

MEETING MOHANJI AT SHIRDI

Mohanji - The Light that came to remove the darkness

By Mohanji’s grace, I travelled to Shirdi in December 2016 for “A retreat with Mohanji in Shirdi.” I had no knowledge of Shirdi Sai Baba and remember wondering what on earth I was doing there. This was my first physical interaction with Mohanji, and I had no idea what to expect. I was so nervous as I walked into the Ahimsa restaurant where Mohanji and His other devotees were seated. He greeted me with a warm smile and shared a chocolate brownie with all of us.

The 12 days in Shirdi were magical! I felt so alive! Mohanji knew that my connection with Shirdi Baba had been there all along. My heart expanded when I listened to the Shej aarati (the night aarati) at Dwarkamai. For twelve days Mohanji showered us with love and kindness that I have never known in my life. It was an extraordinary experience and one I will never forget. Now, I am still annoyed with myself for not attending the program in April – a missed opportunity. I console myself with the thought that He knows when we are ready.

KAILASH WITH MOHANJI – 2017

Within eight months of connecting to Mohanji, I had travelled not just to Shirdi but also to Kailash! I often asked myself what someone like me was doing in Kailash with Mohanji, and having dips in Mansarovar! It felt like a dream. At the same time, I know that all these events are through His grace. He sees me, not my mistakes.

Kailash Manasarovar with Mohanji

Mohanji is incredibly unassuming. It is therefore difficult for us to comprehend the magnitude of who He really is. Do we realise the sacred union that we all share with Mohanji, with each other, with this path that we are so blessed to be on? 7.5 billion people on the planet and we are all connected to Him, whether we realise it or not.

He selflessly gives love and time to whoever needs it, anywhere in the world. My hope is that we never take His grace and love for granted.

The path, however, is not all plain sailing. This path of Shiva will test one, and I can say that I have been tested.

Tests come in many different forms: family, friends, devotees, blogs and one’s ego. Who and what should one believe? I choose to believe in my own experiences.

I have had numerous tests. Most recently, in February 2019, after attending the Kumbh Mela retreat, I left India feeling angry, jealous, hurt, and everything else in-between. I arrived in South Africa with thoughts like “I don’t need this shit.” Only after I calmed down, did I pray to Mohanji about my foolishness, and thanked Him for every emotion I felt. He brought to light that I have not accepted myself fully. It is something that I am now working on. Mohanji often mentions that spending time with Him is not as important as getting to know oneself. I realised that all the emotions that were triggered during this trip were for my growth.

Mohanji knows what each one of us needs, and what is necessary for us to evolve.

Mohanji has taught me that I chose each experience in this life – the depression, my family, every interaction and every emotion. As challenging as it seems at times,

  • I hold on tight to my connection with Him, knowing He is with me at all times.
  • He is my sunshine when there are dark days.
  • He guides me and protects me without asking anything of me.
  • I am almost embarrassed by my faith, but I know that He is holding my hand and that He has given me the tools to live this life with awareness.

I know that He held me the day I was born.

Now, I feel there is much work to do and no time to waste. I want to be free from all these samskaras (latent karmic tendencies) so that I can be useful in this world. Please keep an eye out on my Facebook profile for more of my future experiences.

Jai Mohanji …I love you, Mohanji.

Mohanji Satcharita – Chapter 8 – ‘How the grace of Mohanji transformed my life’

mohanji

Suvarna Singh recounts the transformation in her life after connecting to Mohanji. She had tried to counter the heaviness of her emotions for many years. After she began to feel Mohanji’s compassion and love, her life changed dramatically. Read on to see how this happened.

The grace of Mohanji

by Suvarna Singh, South Africa

I bow to the feet of my Guru, my Saviour, my Father – Mohanji.

“I held you the day you were born.”

These were the words Mohanji uttered as I left my one-on-one session with Him in Shirdi, 2016.

Something needed to change. Enter Mohanji.

The rest, as they say, is history. I found my strength, my guiding light…Mohanji.

The Consciousness Connect

By Neelu (Mohana Bhakti Priya), India.

Mohanji_pure_consciousness.JPG

Connection to Mohanji’s consciousness is truly Being One with the divine. All Duality ends there. Every sincere seeker’s story, who have been connected to Mohanji in His consciousness, shows this every time. Such is the story as Neelu narrates through her sincere testimonial below.

When we are connected to Mohanji, physically or metaphysically, or even when he is around physically or non-physically, things just happen – big problems become laughable jokes. Life is as it flows. We are all one. – Devi Mohan

Neelu has shared her experiences that validate this into two very different situations. Read on and enjoy the beautiful shower of blessings on Neelu and her cousin Sameer!

Gurudev’s Grace takes him out of ICU

My cousin Sameer, was hospitalized in Hyderabad, last Saturday with high fever. (This young 25-year-old, lost his parents and little brother in a tragic road accident while returning from Shirdi ten years ago.) Doctors first diagnosed his condition as Dengue, owing to the rapid fall in his platelets. But later, the tests appeared positive for malaria and Jaundice too. His body temperature did not return to normal even after medication for 3 days. As soon as I came to know of this, I sent a message to Mohanji seeking his help. He immediately replied in spite of his busy schedule and advised us on some course of action for removal of his Karma. Throughout, Mohanji was with him (in astral form) helping Sameer recover. When I prayed to Mohanji before I went to bed and connected with his Consciousness, I asked him if Sameer would be ok. I received his reply that he was there beside Sameer. Last night, the situation had been very grim. But in one night, Mohanji changed the whole scenario.

Today, his body temperature has normalised, and further tests show that there are no traces of malaria, dengue, or jaundice. He has been shifted from the ICU to a regular room in the hospital and he will be discharged in just two days after observation.  What could have been a week’s ordeal was set right by Mohanji in just one night!

Such love and grace is possible only from Him. Thank you so much for everything, my Gurudev!

Neelu shares two more of her own experiences which show how our Guru hears and satisfies our innermost longing for his Grace and blessings. Connect to a living master through faith and surrender and He will always be with you!

Initiation to Consciousness Kriya

Before I write anything about my Consciousness Kriya (CK) initiation and the experiences related to the sacred elevating tool, I would like to offer my Koti Pranaams at the lotus feet of my Master, my everything, my everyone, my Praana, my Aatma, Shri Brahmarishi Mohanji, for bestowing me with his unlimited Grace.

Applying for Consciousness Kriya

After my connection with Mohanji, I started reading about Consciousness Kriya and the experiences of the initiates. Deep within my heart, I knew that it was meant for me as my soul craved for this sacred initiation. I don’t know why, but I never dared to apply for it. There were many reasons for my hesitation. First of all, it was because my immediate family has no belief in living Masters and such techniques. And I thought, it was meant for people who can sit and meditate for a long time, which I could not do. I had many such fears. As always, Mohanji, who knew all these things, lovingly gave me a wonderful and comfortable opportunity to apply.

I was planning a vacation, to visit my parents in Hyderabad, from the end of December 2017 to mid-January, 2018. Exactly at that moment, the Kriya training and initiation in Mumbai (to be held on 9th Jan 2018) was announced. So I had a very good opportunity to attend the initiation with my parents without having to depend upon my immediate family. (My maternal family – my mother and brother – are very connected to Mohanji.) My brother and I always wished that my mother should also be initiated into CK. So my mother and I applied for the sacred initiation. By his loving grace, both our applications were accepted. I was very happy and excited. Everything was going smoothly as I had wanted.

Within a week of acceptance of our CK applications, turbulence started, which I think was a major cleansing process for me. Negativity was hitting me from everywhere. The biggest hit was, when my mother-in-Law fell down and got her ankle slightly fractured. It was just a week before our vacation to Hyderabad. I worried that I may not be able to attend the initiation, as I could not leave my mother-in-law alone in such a condition. But on visiting a doctor, we came to know that, it was just a minor fracture, and she would be normal within 15 days. I realised that I still had sufficient time to be present for the CK initiation. I immediately understood how Mohanji was protecting me from the intensity of the negativity and making it possible for my mother and me to attend the initiation. My vacation to Hyderabad was however cancelled due to this incident, but we could attend the initiation without any problems.

Attending Consciousness Kriya Initiation

My brother was also present with us at the initiation. Baba arranged it in such a way that my parents, my kids and I didn’t face any problems in an unknown city, Mumbai. Moreover, Mohanji fulfilled my desire of meeting him, along with my brother and my mother. (The most loving and understanding trio I have in this lifetime.) Actually it was the first time that I left my little son (and my older son) with my father in a hotel room. He had never been away from me like this for a whole day. But I surrendered all my worries at Mohanji‘s feet and left for the venue. Mohanji as always took care of my worries. My little son was alright, even though he couldn’t see me for a whole day.

The day of the initiation, 9th of Jan, 2018, was very blissful and beyond my imagination, filled only with love and purity. As soon as I entered the venue, I could feel the pure energy of Mohanji. I felt that the whole room, the people present there, the food that we were served, everything was filled with Mohanji.

It was also the first time that I was meeting Deviji, which I was looking forward to, for a long time. She trained us in CK, which was again an amazing experience. She explained to all of us very patiently and clearly the whole process of CK. I felt so blessed that I had a chance to get the training of CK from none other than the Shakti aspect of Mohanji (Deviji). After the blissful training session, Mohanji himself gave us the sacred initiation. Later, he met my brother, my mother and I in a very loving manner, and that moment will always be one of the best moments of my life.

Neelu_CK_Inititation.jpg

After the initiation, we attended the group Mai-tri healing session, which was again a wonderful and blissful experience. In the evening, we had the blessed opportunity to participate in a soul soothing satsang with Mohanji. After the Satsang, as soon as Mohanji left the venue, my back ache, which I had been suffering from for many days, disappeared magically. He took all our pains away while leaving.

Visit to Shirdi

The day after the initiation, we were to visit Shirdi, after a long gap of 9 years. On the day of initiation, my mother and I thought that it would be wonderful if Mohanji was present with us in Shirdi. There was a retreat scheduled in Shirdi from that day onwards and MohanJi was also present there in Shirdi. Unfortunately, those not attending the retreat were not allowed to meet Mohanji. So we knew that we didn’t stand a chance of meeting him. But he was listening to us, as always.

The day we reached Shirdi, we attended the Shej Aarati of Sai Baba. My mother and I were waiting in a hall for the Aarati. As soon we were seated, we got the smell of a perfume, just the same that Mohanji wore during the initiation. We understood that he was present with us. The perfume remained with us the whole time. He added one more sign to indicate his presence. A black and sleek dog came from nowhere, and waited with us till we got into the Mandir hall for the aarati. He was there just for us, making sure everything was ok, I could feel it in his eyes. He waited with us while we were in the queue to enter the Mandir hall.

After we entered the hall, I didn’t see him. We had a wonderful Aarati and darshan of Sai Baba. As soon as we came out of the Mandir, he (the dog) was there waiting for us. We went to the Gurusthan to pay our respects to the sacred place. As it was late night, it was closed for darshan. So we just paid our respects from a distance. The black dog jumped through the railings, and he bowed before the Gurusthan. All the time, he was looking at me, straight into my eyes. I was just speechless. And at last, as we headed back to our hotel room, he also walked away. He stopped after a while, turned back, gave a long reassuring look at us and went his way. We were blessed to have this amazing experience. My feelings were one of gratitude and only gratitude.

Mohanji Pendant

It has always been my desire to have the Mohanji Pendant. I was trying to buy it online, but due to some reason, I couldn’t buy it for six long months. I tried to get one at the stall during the CK initiation too. But it was not available that day. I was very disappointed by this. I wanted the pendant to be blessed by Mohanji and to receive it from his hands. But it didn’t happen. So I requested the team there to send it to me, blessed by him at the Shirdi retreat. I got it on 27th Jan, at a blissful Bhajan Sandhya at Gurgaon. The day is very memorable for me.

Mohanji_Pendant.jpg

After a week of receiving the pendant, my kids were clicking my pictures at home. On that day, I wore a heavy black coat, and my pendant was beneath it. When I was going through the photos, the ones clicked by my little one had an amazing phenomenon. The place where the pendant was hanging on my chain, beneath the coat, was shining very brightly, like a small sun. Mohanji was present in the pendant. He showed it to me, so beautifully…

Mohanji’s Grace & Love

The unlimited grace and the unconditional love he always showers on a nobody that I am, can’t be explained in words. These words are only a very feeble attempt to show his love.

There have been many tests since my Kriya initiation, till this date. Being a very emotional person, I was shaken to the core, while undergoing these tests. He was very gently holding me through all these times, protecting me as a mother would protect her baby. He made me shed a lot of my fears, empowered me and never gave up on me, in spite of my many falls. With each and every experience, he came much closer to me, loved me more.

As I have said in my earlier experience blogs, his consciousness always speaks to me. Now, I talk to him more than anyone else in this world. In fact, the real conversations I have in my life are with him only. Sometimes I forget there is another world for me. But he makes me manage my other world too without any hiccups thus, filling my whole life with HIM everywhere. I can feel him now in my every cell. In fact, my whole being just belongs to HIM. My whole existence lies at his Lotus feet only and nowhere else.

I am now eagerly waiting for the blissful moment, when I will be able to merge into him completely, after completing all my duties of this lifetime. The wait for the complete dissolution, walking the path while holding HIS hand, is what LIFE means to me now.
