(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!!!”
I once again come to you, looking for your support. I have this Insurance Agent friend of mine to whom I had lent 1 lakh rupees by February this year. This money, I had withdrawn from my Credit Card and lent it to him on the assurance that he will pay back the full money with whatever the interest within 3 months.
However, it’s been almost 10 months since the money has been lent and now, he is not paying the CC dues nor he is giving me back the money to pay in full. The interests have doubled now, and he is not picking up my calls even nowadays. I don’t know what to do, I’m already under tremendous financial stress on the personal front and I am not able to digest the fact that this good friend of mine is trying to cheat me.
Please help me with your insights on how I can get the money back from this friend. Thanking you in anticipation.
You can chant the names of the Bach Flower Remedies – Sweet Chestnut, Rock Water, Chestnut Bud, Willow and Pine two hundred times, for three times a day.
Take a small piece of paper. Write your name and his name. Draw a circle around the name. Draw five concentric circles around the first circle. Write the name of the flower remedies in the gap between two circles, one name per gap. Keep it somewhere in your house. Daily see this paper and just read out the names once.
Also, download a squirrel picture and keep it under pillow. Let us see what happens.
It’s really amazing – I wrote to you and when I was about to go to a meeting I got your response. I just started chanting the names suggested by you on my way to the meeting and while coming back as well. What I see on my return is a cheque for Rs.35000/- sent across by the person as part payment with an assurance that the balance will be paid before the end of this month.
Now, I have another problem – the dues from him has actually doubled and I don’t know how to ask him to pay me that – while he has paid the minimum dues in the credit card for the initial 3 months – post that I have been making the minimum dues from my end.
I thank you profusely for this wonderful remedy that you had suggested. I shall continue chanting the remedy that you have suggested already – and if you have any other remedy for me to get the balance amount in full it will be really nice.
A Water Violet person is an unfriendly person. Nobody approaches him as he thinks he is superior to others, while others are inferior to him.
Let us say, we go to a wedding reception. We only know the bride and the groom. We don’t know anybody other than them. How we are going to have company in the wedding hall? Bach Flower Remedy Water Violet will find friends for you.
A wife of an ex-minister attends a celebrity wedding. The street was full of cars. She left her car way back from the wedding hall and started walking towards it.
Water Violet and Larch goes hand in hand. When we meet people in superior status (Water Violet), then we will have low confidence (Larch). The lady chanted both Water Violet and Larch. She was approached by a popular actor. He took her in his car to the hall and accompanied her back to her car.
A Water Violet Person is…
Water Violet person will be working in an unfriendly and lonely atmosphere. As a boss, he will deliberately ignore others. Will do the work himself, as he thinks others can’t do the work as per his standards. So he won’t delegate work, though a leader should be able to delegate.
A Water Violet husband and wife won’t get a divorce but will live separately in the same house. Water Violet will bring them together.
A Water Violet person doesn’t understand the value of other people in his life.
You are in an unknown place and stranded. Don’t know whom to approach. Rock Water and Water Violet is the combination required.
Or call the animal spirit guide Wolf and tell the animal spirit beforehand, ‘I will be there in such and such time. Please be there and take care of me’. It will take care of you!
Rock water is the base remedy for any type of protection against ragging, violence etc, as you would not be harmed or hurt then. It gives total protection against physical harm. If it’s with us, then no body can hurt us.
For ragging give the following remedies:
- Rock water (against physical assault)
- Centaury as she can’t say no
- Rock Rose gives quick mental reflex and extraordinary presence of mind, and an ordinary man will become an extra ordinary person
- Mimulus – you won’t have fear
If you take the above Bach Flower Remedies, then nobody can rag you then.
In a number of offices, women are finding it difficult to work as there is pressure (amorous glances) from men folks. They are neither able to tell others. This combination will work for them too. As a social service write the remedies in a piece of paper and give it to them.
This will be useful to go alone to a shop during late evenings.
Safety during Travel
Protect yourself with Magam (pray to this star), the animal spirit guide Jackal, and Travel Pack (a combination of remedies). Jackal is a protector by all means – physical, mental and spiritual. It will protect you for sure.
Raju (name changed), a leading lawyer from Chennai is a man based on principles. He will never take any case unless he knows the client is on the right side of the law. However, we know in general, the advocates usually tell lies. It is their job to save their clients.
In one court case, the defense lawyer was telling lies, non-stop. Raju could not handle him. Therefore, he consulted Naran S. Balakumar. Based on Balakumar’s instructions, Raju visualized the court and affirmed, “Chestnut bud be in the court hall and sustain there for next 8 hrs”.
Interestingly during the court proceedings, the judge told the defense lawyer, “Yesterday you were lying throughout the day. If you lie one more time, I will give the judgment against your client”. The defense lawyer kept mum, as he could not afford to tell the truth.
Every remedy work in a particular way and it will take a particular Vishwaroopam – an avatar of its own.
This is an extract from Balakumar’s workshop on Bach Flower Remedies conducted on March 30th and 31st, 2009.
