Got my US Visa approved after lots of issues

Dear Naran,

Below is the case history you had wanted me to send you, Sorry about the delay… I want to mail you after I got my passport, which I got only on Monday.

Archana

I came to the US about 3 years back on Student Visa (F1) and after finishing my studies I applied for a Professional Working visa (H1B) this year. After my 2 year studies I had an OPT period of one year, where I will be allowed to work legally in the area of my study.

During my OPT period I had a personal emergency and had to travel to India. I was not aware that during this period if I leave the country, I will not be given the “Change of Status” automatically (from F1 to H1B). Without obtaining the new status, I won’t be eligible to work.

In addition, to get the H1B status I will have to go to my home country immediately after my OPT expiry, get the H1B stamping and then come back into US.

To make matters worse, my employer had forgotten that I had travelled too.

About 3 weeks back my employer received the H1 documents and this issue came to light. I was asked to go to India immediately for my H1 stamping. The situation now is such that if anyone goes to India for their stamping they are held back there for about a minimum of 2-3 months, as they have very strict rules in place now. Some of my friends who left this year beginning have still not  returned back.

The only option for me was to try and go to a neighbouring country. But, the catch was since this is my first H1 stamping I will have to go to my home country.

The second concern is that there is no guarantee that the consulate I go to for my interview will have my information available in their system. In that case, if I turn up for my interview and my details don’t exist in their database I will have to stay in that country till my information reflects in their system (for about 10-15 days).

Or the worse situation will be I will be asked to go to my home country for my stamping. I didn’t have a choice but to risk it all and give it a try.

I immediately got in touch with Naran S Balakumar and he asked me to chant “GORSE WILD ROSE SCLERANTHUS MIMULUS”.

Last week, I left the US for my visa stamping. The day I was leaving the US I got in touch with Naran again. I told him about the uncertainty I was facing. He asked me to chant “WATER VIOLET ROCK WATER LARCH GENTIAN WILD ROSE”. In addition, I have to call upon the animal spirit “WOLF”, request Wolf to interview me and ensure my details be available in the consulate’s system.

Fortunately, I had one of the best experiences ever, as my friend’s father is a Diplomat in the Indian Embassy. Due to which, I got a “Red Carpet” greeting during my visit. I stayed at my friend’s parent’s house for about a week. On the day of my interview to my astonishment I was asked only 2 questions – one about my employment and the other about why I had come there for stamping rather than going to my home country. That’s it! No more questions! My Visa was approved!!!

What made the whole experience pleasant and memorable is that I was in a foreign land where I had a place to stay. I was taken care of very well. And everything was taken care off for me!!!

I am very grateful to Naran S Balakumar for all his help during this difficult time.

Thanks,

Explanation

GORSE: when you feel hopeless about a situation

SCLERANTHUS: for the confusion, whether to go back to India or not

MIMULUS: fear of getting Visa application rejected

WATER VIOLET, ROCK WATER, LARCH, GENTIAN and WILDROSE: a good combination to get your visa or get our done in the Indian government offices.

WOLF: the animal spirit can be called upon for any kind of help

 

Sharing the Success Formula

M A K

I am a fan of yours.

My father was a sub-share broker and I was young I used to follow all his work. As I grew up I had some hard times, could go to college but finished some studies. I am well versed with software and I am into business.

My father always used to say that I should concentrate in shares business but that was not going into my head I was more concentrating in my other business. Before 6 months I had a thought of going into shares business, I went but I have lost money. My 6th sense says that I can do well in it. But then to I lost the money.

After reading from your article I have started taking GORSE, ROCK ROSE, SCELERANTHUS, CERATO, OLIVE, PINE, SWEET CHESTNUT, CHESTNUT BUD, MUSTARD, and WHITE CHESTNUT. Kindly guide me

Naran

These remedies should not be combined in a reckless manner and taken.

1.       When you want to understand the nuances or intricacies of share trading take MUSTARD AND OAK.

2.       When you are asking people or referring some articles about how to go about in share business, take CERATO.

3.       When you invest in shares take SCLERANTHUS and GENTIAN. And continue to take it. This will help you to come out of “this or that” confusion. If this confusion is there, you will wrongly invest in a share, which after investment will go down. I.e., when you want the share to go up, it will come down and so on. To prevent this SCLERANTHUS and GENTIAN.

4.       Share is always a business of luck one has no choice but to accept what is happening. If there is a failure and if you are de-motivated take GENTIAN and WILD ROSE. This will increase your internal motivation.

5.       In spite of all these remedies, sometimes, you may take a wrong decision, and later regret the decision. At that time, take HONEYSUCKLE and to learn from mistakes take CHESTNUT BUD.

6.       When you are desperate about anything take SWEET CHESTNUT.

7.       Daily chant the switch words, “FIND DIVINE ORDER SHARE TRADING” (share trading is not a switch word)

Best of Luck

Winning Presentations

Raju

I had to make a presentation to a delegation that came from Europe.  The presentation was an overview and update of our business.  At the end of the meeting / presentation, we were looking for investment from the European / Global division of the visiting company.

The night before the presentation I spoke to Mohan and asked him for some tips.  He asked me to draw two sets of concentric circles:

  1. One with my name in the centre and WATER VIOLET, LARCH, GENTIAN and WILD ROSE in the outer circles in that order and
  2. Another one with my name in the centre along with the person I was making the presentation to, date and location and ELM, GORSE and HEATHER in the outer circles in that order.

I drew these circles on two sheets of paper and took them along with me in to the meeting room.  The meeting started at 10 a.m. and my turn came at around 4 p.m.

What I observed during the day was that the main person in the visiting team was someone who did not smile through the day and did not really give away any of his emotions / views.  When I started presenting, I suddenly felt very comfortable and at ease and I actually smiled during my presentation.  This, in a way, forced a smile on that person who was tight-lipped and was on guard.  In fact, he said a few words in appreciation of the work we are doing too.

Explanation

WATER VIOLET, LARCH, GENTIAN and WILD ROSE: a good combination for any interviews including Visa Interviews, and for meeting with big bosses

ELM, GORSE and HEATHER: Heather will make people listen to you, while Elm and Gorse will increase your capacity / skill

R Mohan

I was about to give a presentation to engineering students from Anna University. Naran asked me to chant OAK and MUSTARD to prepare the presentation, and write “ELM, GORSE and HORNBEAM” on a piece of paper and keep it with me while giving the lecture. Without fail it worked wonders.

Explanation

OAK: for smart presentation

MUSTARD: to know what the students would expect and meet them; will throw light to us to understand the needs of the students

ELM, GORSE and HORNBEAM: teacher’s remedy for taking classes

I received a Red Carpet Welcome

Dear Naran,

I am extremely happy to tell you that I had been selected for internship at Cummins Inc., Singapore. Thank you very much.

I was chanting (Bach Flower Remedies) Gorse and Clematis right from the beginning of the day. Everything went very well for me. Everybody greeted me with a smile and spoke to me in a friendly manner, right from the cab driver to the interviewer. It was as though, completely my day. I am extremely thankful to you.

I am also chanting Gentian and Wild Rose daily for good exam results.

Bach Flower Remedies June 27 2009 Part III

(From Multi Dimensional Healing June 27 Workshop)

Heart Problems

Elm oak olive: combination for any heart problem.

Do Heart Mudra in addition. On both hands index finger touches the base of the thumb, and middle and ring fingers touch the tip of the thumb. It will give energy to heart by eliminating Carbon Dioxide. Do it 15 minutes each in the morning and evening. Pressure and cholesterol will become less. Blood circulation in the heart will improve.

Mediation

You are going as a mediator where there is plenty of anger and anguish around. You wanted to convince everybody and make them understand your view point. You need to speak their language.

Agrimony (add this only if there is anger is felt), Beech, Walnut and Chestnut Bud – use this combination for any mediation.

Emergency Remedy

When too much of anger: Holly, Willow and Rescue Remedy

Rescue Remedy has the advantage when terror and panic strikes, and for emergency situations. Somebody just met with an accident, and the person suffers from continuous bleeding. Think about him. Chant Rescue Remedy and bleeding will stop.

Skin Problems

For any type of skin problem – Crab Apple, Agrimony and Rescue Remedy (add RR only if the itching is intense). For any skin disease, Crab Apple and Agrimony is the base remedy. A person had a severe itching in his leg. He couldn’t put his shoe. This combination was given to him. Next day, he said he slept peacefully and the itching is gone too. I asked him did you thank your Tabla, being a Tabla player. Even inanimate things like Tabla have some thinking mind, please note.

Chitra: for dogs any skin related problems Crab Apple and Agrimony has definite healing properties. If there is any serious problem add Rescue Remedy to the combination.

Bach Flower Remedies Meditation CD

Divine is waiting for chance to help you. At the right moment and at the right time, it will enter the heart and activate the right flowers. When you listen to the CD, the flowers will choose you. Whatever is the right flower will work for you.

Hopeless State

Any hopeless state should be turned into joy. There is a bus strike, no bus around and you have vacated the lodge too. Nobody is there in the bus stand too. You have to go to Chennai, the next day.  You become hopeless.

Chant Gorse. Hopeless state will turn into joy. Some bus or some form of transportation will be found.

Family Harmony

There are flowers Beech, Walnut, Willow, Agrimony, Chicory, and Cherry Plum (Harmony Pack) to bring harmony into your life. Call them and affirm, “Bring harmony in my family”. Whenever you fear there will be confrontation, write the names of flowers in paper before talking to your family members and face the situation. You will find everything happens in a smooth fashion.

Bach Flowers helps to get college admission

Govind

Neha was a very good student and had obtained very good marks in her 12th standard examination and in the engineering entrance examination. When the first round of results was announced, Neha was waitlisted at No.10 for the electronics and communications engineering course in a top-notch engineering college.

Neha lost her hopes of getting admission. “No chance” was her expression. Occasionally she was also torn by two thoughts: “I may get; I will not get”.  Balakumar asked Neha to take Scleranthus (to overcome oscillation between two thoughts – whether I will get the seat or not) and Gorse (“No chance”).

Neha took the pills for 1 week. With the help of divinity, Bach flowers and Balakumar’s timely guidance, Neha got admission into Electronics & Communication Engineering course.

Since the admission process in engineering colleges in Tamil Nadu is a lengthy and unpredictable process, Neha’s father had admitted her in an engineering college outside Tamil Nadu before the admission results were announced in Tamil Nadu. He had paid the first year tuition fees there.

Neha’s parents again turned to Balakumar to get the fees back since that college was reluctant to refund the money. Balakumar suggested Chicory and Centaury and they got the money back.

Neha Did Not Seek Flowers for Her MBA

Neha has successfully completed her engineering course now. She recently attempted to get into IIM. This time too, she was waitlisted. But she did not make it to IIMs. However this time, she or her parents did not take the help of Balakumar for IIM admissions in spite of encountering a similar situation nor did Neha take the Bach flower remedies she took 4 years back (please note here that the situation is very similar).

Why she or her parents did not consult Balakumar this time? Why Neha did not take Scleranthus and Gorse this time, in spite of success in a similar situation in the past?

Astrologically, Neha is going through 7.5 year Saturn since last 2 years. Could it be Saturn or could it be her destiny that prevented her from turning to Bach flowers?

Let us not be ruled by Astrology. Let us rule Astrology.

Naran S Balakumar

Your observation is to seek a possible answer from outside. The same event can be assessed from different angles by different people. Some may put the blame on Saturn. Others may put the onus on Destiny.

But what is the truth? We are always duped by our mind. If you are aware of what is happening in the mind – observing the thoughts and emotions – we can seek the help of flowers. If we miss the observation even by 1%, mind will dupe us. After the event is over, we put the blame on destiny, planets etc.

Every event is a lesson – Divinity is so compassionate – in awareness. Even now if awareness is there, something can be done, by the flowers.

Life is not about what we get and what we don’t get. Life is how we live.

Let us not be ruled by Astrology. Let us rule Astrology.

One can try the following. If one has a problem because of a planet as per his sign, let him find out which is the most favorable sign for a particular period. Keep the picture of that Zodiac sign in your energy field. When your energy field projects that zodiac sign, the unfavorable planet turns favorable.

Try and Dare 2 Do IT!
