Mrs. Shourya Mehta is an architect and as part of her spiritual practice, she assisted in the preparation of architectural plans for the spiritual research centre in Goa, India. She also helped oversee its construction. When the construction of the research centre was underway, Shourya's son Yaduveer, who was just over a year old, started to have sleep problems. He would wake up around 8-10 times in the night. Attending to a baby suffering from insomnia (caused by fitful sleeping) was exhausting and Shourya would find it very difficult to get to the construction site and put in a whole day of service unto the Absolute Truth (satsēvā). At first, she went through a number of paediatric websites in search of a solution for insomnia in babies. Along with this she spoke to many experienced mothers. She implemented all the remedies they recommended for the insomnia, but nothing worked.
During this entire time, she was also taking care to incorporate spiritual healing measures. For example, some of the spiritual healing remedies would include lighting incense sticks especially meant for spiritual healing, placing strips of paper with the name of God printed on them around Yaduveer's bassinet, etc. However the sleepless nights continued. Many of the other mothers told her that she could expect this to continue until her child was about three years of age. So over time Shourya began to accept her son's sleep pattern as being quite natural and mentally prepared herself for the fact that this situation would continue for many more months.
Finally after some 7 to 8 months, a very sleep deprived Shourya happened to mention her predicament to Mrs. Anjali Gadgil, a seeker from the spiritual research team. Mrs. Anjali Gadgil immediately told Shourya that she could see a subtle black cap of negative energy around Yaduveer's head. She recommended that before Yaduveer slept, Holy ash (Vibhūti) be smeared all over his head.
Shourya recounts, "That day itself, as advised, I applied Holy ash on Yaduveer's head before I put him to bed. Yaduveer slept through the night without waking up. For the first time in many months, I too could sleep through the night. With the continuation of this spiritual healing remedy for insomnia, my son continued to sleep through the night without waking up. This experience really opened my eyes to the importance of spiritual healing measures."
The root cause behind Yaduveer's case of insomnia (caused by fitful sleeping) was purely spiritual in nature. The reason for this was due to departed ancestors.
Up to 80% of problems in life can have their root cause in the spiritual dimension. Hence along with the physical and psychological measures taken to treat insomnia, it is best to incorporate spiritual healing measures as provided in our spiritual healing section.
The spiritual healing measures that Shourya initially implemented helped up to 30%. However, 70% of the cure was attributed to the application of Holy ash. It is important to understand that spiritual healing measures can change depending on the nature of the subtle-attack that is causing the insomnia. Hence do try a variety of spiritual healing measures as it will increase the chances of a cure if the root cause of the insomnia is due to spiritual reasons. Your baby will only benefit from the positive spiritual energy generated through each spiritual healing measure.
