Job Mantras

I have never been in the same job for more than 10 months. Either, I change project within the same company, so going to a different location or completely shifting to another company. Due to this, I always feel unsettled and unstable.

Naran

Take the following remedies:

  • SCLERANTHUS: The unsteady mind will always have an unsettled life. One day you have the desire to go for the job. The very next day you have resistance to go to the job (changeable mood or mood swings). Scleranthus will give you a steady and stable mind, and helps you settle down.
  • HORNBEAM: Of course steadiness in the job for 10-15 years doesn’t indicate growth. You need to move forward in life.
  • ROCK ROSE: To have determination and commitment and a “never-say-die spirit”
  • WALNUT: You would have taken this pattern from one of your parents or ancestors. To break the pattern, Walnut is needed.
  • The fifth could be any one of the following three, based on your mental states:
    • Gentian: To be upbeat and optimistic in all circumstances
    • Willow: if you have resentment and feel that your counter-parts or juniors are doing better, even though you are better qualified.
    • Larch: if you think others are smart and more capable than in utilizing their opportunities, while you are not (lack of confidence)

All remedies have to be taken separately; two pills each, with a gap of five minutes, and twice a day.

Chant the switch words:

MOVE ON FIND COUNT DIVINE JOB

Move on: now you are not in a job, so you need to move on,

Find Count Divine: to get a good salary

Job: Goal.

Winning Ways

My past failures are holding on to me

I am trying to find a new job and I am meeting some obstacles within myself. Here are the themes:

  • Not feeling I have the skill set to apply to the positions I know in my heart that I desire for.
  • Not feeling smart enough even though I am graduated from a top school.
  • I remember past failures, even though I have an outstanding memory.
  • Feeling like that I cannot get good references.
  • Not feeling valuable or that I can make as much money as I know I deserve for my work.
  • Feeling judged for even wanting to rise to a higher position (glass ceiling).
  • I regret my past failures in school despite outstanding reviews for the past 4 years. It is quite irrational but is having a real affect on my ability.
  • Is there a mantra that can work for me? I am committed to getting out of this rut from the inside out.
  • Additionally, I am always somehow short on funds even though I know with some certainty that I can maintain a balanced checkbook. Little things always happen to take it away.

Naran

Chant “ELM, LARCH, HONEYSUCKLE, GENTIAN, HORNBEAM”

No promotion in sight for me

I am working in an IT company for past 5 plus years and working very hard but I am not being recognized nor being promoted to the next level. I have my appraisal next month and I need promotion and a very good salary hike, as I do not want to leave my company.

Please help me. Because of this I am very de-motivated after working so hard and doing well and yet there is no career progression

Naran

Chant “ELM LARCH ROCK ROSE”.
(Within yourself) thank all your colleagues, superiors, the management, and the salary you are getting (currently). Live in the attitude of gratitude.

Explanation

Elm: will expand your capabilities that are required for your growth and promotions in your endeavors.

Larch: Boosts your self-confidence (for success)

Honeysuckle:  Not to regret in the past, and not to be held by the past. Instead, move forward in life.

Gentian: Not to be down due to setbacks. Instead use them as feedback and lessons to be learned.

Hornbeam: Not to get stuck up and move forward

Rock rose: not to panic about the appraisal

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
