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

WILDROSE: not to become apathetic if visa application is rejected

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

 

Complementing and Opposing Companions of Life!!!

R Mohan

Am I talking about our beloved life travellers in people’s lives – spouse or family members, who take different avatars in different times of our life? No, I am talking about the Bach Flower Remedies here.

Opposite Poles attract each other

Let me share my experiences here. I am a typical, typical Impatiens (Bach Flower Remedy) type. For that matter, all the male members of my family are impatient. So we end up meeting Scleranthus-type personalities. I thought so and believed so.

In this regard, it is not uncommon for me to address my close friends and my too good colleagues as Scleranthus. Surprisingly, one day Naran prescribed me Scleranthus.  In addition, he told me that I need to take it for at least 6 months.

After one year, I was shocked to realize that I need to continue to take it for six more months, as Scleranthus-types change slowly (no doubt as Scleranthus is prescribed for procrastinating types).

Thus, when an Impatiens attracts Scleranthus, a Centaury attracts Vine or Chicory, or a Pine attracts Water Violet or Beech, if one remedy is given, the opposite type remedies also has to be given for chronic cases.

Like Father Like Son

I thought I am a rebellion. In the end, I end-up becoming like my father in certain cases. For example, I am happier in doing things myself. Two years back Naran asked me to take Beech as well as Water Violet. The reason being, Water Violet type personalities sometimes become mixed with Beech qualities, finding lack of perfection in work of others.

Now (after two years, I understand lately – a Scleranthus Brain hmm :)), I understand that in all my work-related stuff I behave either as a Beech (criticizing others’ ways) or as a Water Violet (working as a solitary with a big superiority complex and this I humbly accept this criticism about myself).

Similarly, Holly and Vine complement each other. Likewise, there are other remedies complementing some other remedies.

One inside another

Yet another combination I had taken on a regular basis is – Gentian and Hornbeam. My best recommendation so far to my friends are Walnut (resist to change) Gentian and Hornbeam. Any activity will go on without fail and interruptions. You may add Pine to that combination, if you have a low self-esteem.

Naran was explaining to me about this combination a week back. A Hornbeam person, if he starts, he will complete. However, a Gentian person will get stuck up immediately.

I asked him, why then he had prescribed me both? After all, they are attacking different issues that are contradictory to each other, isn’t it? He replied, a person who has a starting trouble, will also have stuck-up issues in the middle. One is inside other, completing each other.

I am confused, I remarked. He replied that I need not worry as he is planning to take a class on multi-dimensional aspects of Bach Flower Remedies sometime during the month of November. It would clarify all my doubts.

So folks, let us catch during the month of November. Hopefully, and as always, it will clarify not only the different aspects of Bach Flower Remedies, but will also clarify some of our life issues as well.

Have a Great Deepavali

Good Luck

180 degree turnaround of My Life

Uma Balakrishnan

Dear Naran,

This is a letter of thanks for the 180* turn-around in my life after I have come into your healing network.

Externally, nothing in my life has changed. Like for the rest of us, each day comes with a different set of problems and challenges.

Yet, internally I am no more the frail, victim – consciousness person. I am fully empowered today as I connect more and surrender more to the Divine. I have my chants, mantras, switch words, Bach remedies, gem remedies, various healing techniques and these are my constant companions for the day as yet another day starts. Not to mention the audio CDs that empower me as I learn the true meaning of self – love!

A round of Namashivayam removes a body pain and a lilting Om Namo Naarayanaaya is the circuit breaker for me when I feel something pull me down! And there is always the queen of remedies – Rescue Remedy, that is so subtle and yet so powerful!

A fortnight ago, I was cleaning the kitchen shelf when one of the wooden racks fell to the floor, leaving a deep gash on the outside of my small toe.There was profuse bleeding and my family felt that the wound was deep and required a few sutures!

However, all I did was to remain calm and kept chanting Rescue Remedy like a mad person and soaked my feet in the rescue remedy water. Within 15 minutes there was no pain, no blood, and no need for sutures!

Thanks once again,

Regards

Naran

Left arm pit – nobody is helping you, so suppressed anger will be present – Centaury and Willow for pain.

Right side arm pit – Holly, Willow

Lower back pain – Chicory

Whenever you have pains shifting from one place to another then take Scleranthus

Numbness from sitting long hours

If there is numbness from sitting long hours, then the remedies prescribed are:

Numbness in the Leg from sitting– Hornbeam and Walnut,

Hand – Wild Rose, Centaury, Pine and Willow

Calcarea Phos -6x (homeopathy) 3 tablets three times a day for one month will reduce the numbness to a very great extent – in fact, numbness will not be there.

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

A typical Rock water person

(Karthik, an executive manager of a leading actor, consulted Naran, S. Balakumar regarding the problems he is facing while working inside the film industry.)

Karthik: I am a disciplined person, remaining single all my life. I meet so many celebrities in the film world. You know very well that it is a place where there is no self-control, and no discipline on the part of the individuals.

(He means drinking habits, womanizing, telling lies for their own sake, cheating people and so on. A typical ROCK WATER surrounded by CHESTNUT BUDS! Where there is a jailor/cop there are prisoners inside the jail – in one and the same place!!!)

I need to maintain my self-control, to maintain my position, until the end of my career. I am already 50 years and I have to keep up my name (image) and my parents’ name in the midst of my current situation in the film industry. My father is a self-made man. It is my duty to keep up his name. I have good respect in the industry and I have to keep it up. Earning a good name is difficult, but more difficult to keep it.

Naran: What is your daily routine? And what do you want from me?

Karthik: I am a much disciplined man. I wake up around 5 a.m. Do my yoga and then do Pooja for about one hour. From 9 a.m. I will start seeing visitors. I will have lunch around 1pm. In the night, I will do meditation for one hour before going to sleep. For dinner I will have only fruits and milk.

Naran: For a man who takes only fruits and milk in the night, what is your (health) problem then?

Karthik: I have no problems. I just want to be more self-controlled and more disciplined?

Naran: Do you have the fear of losing control? (A Rock Water person, after 50 years of age, is afraid of losing control over his self-denial of sex!)

Karthik: Yes that fear is always there. I used to tell within, “I should never lose control

Naran: Do you get angry?

Karthik: Yes, I meet a lot of people – both good and bad, and so many liars. When I come across the bad people and liars, suddenly I will lose my temper and shout at them.

Naran: What do you feel then?

Karthik: I then feel ashamed of myself for getting angry.

Naran: What values you cherish most?

Karthik: Honesty, Dignity, Respect (motto: give respect and take respect), Speaking Truth. Unfortunately I am in a place it is full of liars, dishonest persons and cheaters. I give loan. I will never get it back.

(A Rock water person feels ashamed of himself, for getting angry. While a PINE person will feel guilty after the episode of anger. One more key word for Rock Water: Feeling Ashamed; Shameful.)

Karthik: I want to develop my spirituality further. My friend told me that you prescribe flowers for such endeavors.

Naran: You require remedies for what types of growth?

Karthik: Flower for my spiritual growth and anger.

(Anger is the one emotion which a Rock Water person will try hard to control, for it is below his dignity to get angry. So Rock water person will require CHERRY PLUM. Naran wanted to find out whether there is any Chestnut Bud quality in Karthik. So he asked a question.)

Naran: Do you have any other problem, like poor memory, for example? (A poor memory indicates Chestnut Bud)

Karthik: Yes my memory is very poor, which is one of the reasons for my anger. Is there any flower for that? Please give me that too.

(A typical Rock water person is of high discipline. He has self-control, dignity and honesty. He wants to be respected. Karthik has invited Chestnut Bud people around him. Rock Water is surrounded by Chestnut Bud.)

Prescription for Karthik

He wants remedy for losing self-control – CHERRY PLUM. He wants remedy for poor memory – CHESTNUT BUD. Of course, he has to take ROCK WATER as a type remedy.

For protection, he was asked to do Violet Flame prayer “I AM a Being of Violet Fire. I AM the Purity of God’s Creation!!!”

Beware! Resentment Eats You!!!

Her father wasn’t doing well. He was admitted in a hospital nearby. However, she wanted to admit him in his friend’s hospital, expecting a better treatment there. Unfortunately, he developed an infection after he was admitted. He passed away soon after.

After her father’s death, whenever she passes that hospital she felt very angry towards his father’s friend and at the same time felt guilty for she admitted him there. This went to the extent that she wasn’t eating properly, even though it had been several months since her father’s death.

She was asked to take Pine (guilt) and Willow (resentment and blaming the doctor for her father’s infection).

Her feedback after taking the Bach Flower Remedies:

Naran, I just took one dose of Willow and Pine. I had a good appetite. After a long time, I loved the food I ate!!!

Ms. H

If you give the right remedies, even one dose will do the trick.

Naran

I need to gain confidence

I am a teacher, I teach well to my students, but if some observers come from outside, to observe my class, I becomes so upset and my mouth becomes so dry and have difficulty in talking also.  What should I do?

Mrs S.

When somebody comes you are losing confidence and you can pray to Larch and Hornbeam (Bach Flower Remedies) at that time. Call them for help and ask them to increase your confidence.

You would be alright.

Naran

How do we find a good house for rent?

Please advice me for getting a house for rent, within our budget.

In addition, it should be of our choice.

Nayana

Chant, “Cerato Mimulus Find Divine House”

Naran

Explanation

Cerato and Mimulus are Bach Flower Remedies, while Find and Divine are Switch Words.

Cerato: when you are searching for something

Mimulus: when you want your expenditure to be within the budget, for example you want the wedding expenses to be within your budget.

Find: to find the object of your choice

Divine: by miracle, by luck

House: for rent. This is not a switch word, but the goal or objective.
