SSRF publishes these case studies with the intention of providing some direction to our readers with regard to problems that manifest at a physical or psychological level, but which can have their root cause in the spiritual dimension. When the root cause of a problem is spiritual in nature we have observed that the inclusion of spiritual healing remedies generally gives the best results. SSRF advises continuation of conventional medical treatment along with spiritual healing remedies for the treatment of physical and psychiatric illnesses. Readers are advised to take up any spiritual healing remedy at their own discretion.
This case study is a testimony to how making a concerted effort when starting spiritual practice can have a dramatic effect on reducing stubborn life problems. In Mrs. Manasi Rajandekar’s case, the stubborn life problem was severe recurrent migraine.
The following is an account of her experience in her own words:
The migraine occurrences started when I was in the 5th grade and continued for the next 8 years until my first year of college (university). The migraine would occur every couple of weeks and would continue unabated for at least 24 hours. The entire region from the base of the skull at the neck region right up to my forehead would throb uncontrollably with a pain that would immobilise me. During the migraine I would become totally non-functional and would be unable to perform any of my worldly duties such as going to school. etc. I could not even eat. I would just be in bed trying to survive the pain in my head. The strongest of pain-killers prescribed by my family doctor would not help in overcoming the pain. It seemed that the migraine had a mind of its own and would only subside when it wanted to and not due to any pain-killer. To give an idea of the pain; it was more than the pain encountered when I underwent a root canal without anaesthesia. My extremities (hands and feet) too would begin to get numb with the pain. My mother would be beside herself in fear that I may not survive the headaches. It seemed to me that the doctors were powerless in being able to help me. When I switched to homeopathy the frequency of the headaches reduced as compared to when treated through allopathic remedies.
Then one day I came in touch with some seekers from SSRF who were doing spiritual practice under the guidance of His Holiness Dr. Jayant Athavale. For the first time it was brought to my attention that every person needs to do regular spiritual practice and that the purpose of our life is to grow spiritually. I remember that from that very moment, I began to chant the Name of my family Deity and also the Name of Sree Gurudev Datta for protection from problems caused due to departed ancestors. From the very first day, I chanted regularly for five hours a day while performing my daily chores. After I started spiritual practice, I can remember having a migraine only one more time, but it was very mild.
3 months after starting spiritual practice, I remember meeting H.H. Dr. Jayant Athavale for the first time on His visit to Nagpur. That too was a spiritual experience. There was a crowd around Him and I desperately wanted to meet Him. I prayed to Him, “If this is the path of spiritual practice that I am to take, please let me meet You.” At that moment, He turned towards me and as the crowd parted to make way for Him I found that I was standing right in front of Him. Our eyes met and He smiled at me as I too moved to make way for Him.
After that I cannot remember having any more migraines.
Comment from SSRF
- Through spiritual research we found that Manasi’s problem of severe migraines was caused due to a spiritual reason, i.e. departed ancestors.
- For more information on how an attack from the subtle can cause migraines please refer to another case study that we have published on migraines.
