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 A. Autosuggestion : Whenever I feel afraid with the thought that ‘I will be infected with coronavirus’, I will remind myself that I am taking all necessary precautions, and I will remain in Divine thoughts by utilising maximum time in chanting and praying.
Autosuggestion No. 1 : Whenever I get the thought that ‘I will die if I am infected with coronavirus’, I will remember that 80% of patients infected with coronavirus have mild illness. With this awareness, I will remain positive and take care of my health by following the guidelines given by family members, well-wishers and Government agencies.
Autosuggestion No. 2 : Whenever I get the thought that ‘I will die if I am infected with coronavirus’, I will remember that the time of death is fixed by God. Therefore, man can die any time, not only because of coronavirus, but also due to any other reason. I will focus on spiritual practice to make human life meaningful.
(Note : Select one of the two suggestions that suit your temperament.)
3. Incorrect thought : Feeling stressed that
‘I don’t have enough mental strength to face such a difficult situation’.
Autosuggestion : Whenever I feel stressed that ‘I don’t have enough mental strength to face such a difficult situation’, I will realise that ever-compassionate God is with me in good as well as difficult situations. He will increase my mental strength by guiding me on what I need to do specifically in adverse situations. Thus, I will have strong faith in God.
4. Incorrect thought : Feeling worried that
despite medication, my daughter’s cold/fever is not subsiding.
Autosuggestion : When my daughter has a long running cold/fever, I will realise that not every cold/fever is due to infection. I will have faith in God and give her medicines as advised by the doctors and will inform them about her status from time to time.
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.
6. Incorrect thought : 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.
7. Method of taking autosuggestions
7A. Duration and frequency of autosuggestions
If you have any of the abovementioned incorrect thoughts, tension or worry, take the related autosuggestion for 15 days or till such thoughts reduce. These autosuggestion sessions should be done 5-times-a-day. Take one autosuggestion 5 times during each session. Autosuggestions can be taken for any other incorrect thoughts which cause stress, tension, worry, etc.
7B. Concentrate while taking autosuggestions
and experience reduction of inappropriate thoughts within a short time
Many people have experienced that if autosuggestions are taken with concentration, they have faster effect on the subconscious mind and the thoughts of stress or anxiety reduce in a short time. Hence, take autosuggestions with concentration. If you cannot autosuggestions with concentration due to unnecessary thoughts, they can be mutterred or read from the paper on which they are written. This will automatically reduce the attention to unnecessary thoughts, and the autosuggestions will be effective. While taking the autosuggestion, make sure that others are not disturbed.
(To eliminate psychological problems, taking autosuggestions is a part of the personality defects removal process (PDR). Information on the complete PDR process is given in Sanatan’s Text series – ‘Personality Defects removal and Ego removal [7 Volumes].)
Increase the spiritual practice with the faith that ‘God is going to protect us in the present adversity !’
8A. Chant mantras to increase immunity and spiritual strength
To prevent getting infected, perform mantra-remedies along with medical treatment as a preventive measure, to increase immunity and spiritual strength. For this, during the coronavirus pandemic, chant ‘Shri Durgadevyai Namaha – Shri Durgadevyai Namaha – Shri Durgadevyai Namaha – Shri Gurudev Datta – Shri Durgadevyai Namaha – Shri Durgadevyai Namaha – Shri Durgadevyai Namaha – Om Namaha Shivaya’.
8B. Start performing spiritual practice
to survive the adverse times and increase it
Coronavirus pandemic is just a glimpse. We may have to face even bigger disasters in the ensuing adverse times. However, no matter how big is the calamity, it can be overcome on the basis of devotion unto God. We have an ideal before us in the form of devotee Prahlad. To survive all calamities, those who are performing spiritual practice should increase it, and those who are not, should start performing spiritual practice right away !
Start performing spiritual practice with faith that God will protect us in the adverse times and increase your spiritual practice !
