Request to readers, well-wishers and devout Hindus !
Presently coronavirus infection has spread to most of the countries, including India. This has disrupted public life and created a frightening atmosphere among the common people. In such a situation, personality defects such as mind getting disturbed due to minor causes, anxiety, discomfort due to feeling scared may get manifested. Taking appropriate autosuggestions on these occasions helps to get out of the given situation. In this regard, the autosuggestions which can be taken to enhance inner power and become stable are given ahead.
1. Incident : Feeling scared that ‘I will be infected with the coronavirus’
1 A. Autosuggestion : Whenever I get scared at the thought of getting infected with the coronavirus, I will remind myself that ‘I am taking all the care that is needed’ and I will chant and pray most of the time throughout the day and remain in Sat.
2. Incident : Fear that ‘I will die if I get infected by coronavirus’
2 A. Autosuggestion : Whenever I think that ‘I will die if I get infected by coronavirus’, I will realise that ‘the disease is mild in 80% of the patients who are infected with the coronavirus’ and I will remain optimistic. I will take proper care of my health by following the instructions given by the family, well-wishers and Government administration.
3. Incident : Feeling worried about my daughter whose
cold/fever is not getting cured despite undergoing medication
3 A. Autosuggestion : When my daughter has cold/fever for many days, I will realise that ‘a cold/fever is not necessarily caused by a coronavirus infection every time’, and by keeping faith in God, I will give her medicines as prescribed by the doctors and keep informing them about her condition regularly.
4. Incident : Feeling worried that ‘my family
cannot travel to see me because of coronavirus pandemic’
4 A. Autosuggestion : When I feel worried that ‘my family cannot travel to see me, I will perceive that it is beneficial not to travel during the pandemic for the safety of all. These are tough times’, and I will take care of health by following the safety instructions given by the Government to ensure that I and my family do not get infected with coronavirus.
5. Incident : Currently, due to the lockdown
there is a scarcity of essential commodities (milk, cereals,
medicines, etc.); therefore, worrying ‘Will I get these commodities ?
5 A. Autosuggestion : When I get worried that ‘will I be able to get these essential commodities because of their scarcity presently,’ I will realise that the Government of India has arranged to distribute all commodities to all citizens at home. Therefore, I will become relaxed and focus on chantings and prayers.
6. Method of taking autosuggestions
If you have any of the above inappropriate thoughts, tension or worry, take the related autosuggestion on it for 15 days or until your thoughts reduce. These sessions of autosuggestion should be performed 5 times a day. Take one autosuggestion 5 times during each session.
7. Concentrate while taking autosuggestions and experience
the diminishing of inappropriate thoughts within a short period !
Many people have experienced that by taking autosuggestions on attaining concentration, the suggestions inculcate sanskars (Subconscious impressions) and the tensions and worries diminish within a short period. Therefore, take autosuggestions with concentration. If the autosuggestion session could not be taken with concentration due to the futile thoughts, they can be taken by muttering or reading the autosuggestion written on paper. This will automatically reduce the attention toward thoughts and autosuggestion sessions would be effective. Be careful not to disturb others by taking suggestions loudly.
If any of other thoughts other than mentioned above are causing stress, tension, anxiety, etc., then you can take autosuggestion for them also.
(To eliminate the psychological problems, taking autosuggestion is a part of the process for removal of personality defects. A detailed information about the entire process for removal of personality defects is given in Sanatan’s Holy text, ‘Removal of Personality defects and Ego [Volume 7]’)
Increase the spiritual practice with the faith that ‘God is going to protect us in the present adversity !’
