The BRAHMA KUMARIS recommend Rajyoga meditation along with self-affirmations to battle Covid-19
These are unprecedented times. The world had not imagined that a virus emanating from China would engulf the whole world and change lives so dramatically in such a short span of time in so many ways.
Last year, nation after nation got impacted by the virus and countries announced lockdowns. Schools, colleges and offices have been shut down and gatherings of people cancelled. Organisations have adopted different formats of working from home.
The virus also took a severe economic toll. Economists are talking of collateral economic damage that the virus caused and the prolonged winter of an economic slowdown that it has brought forth.
The spectre of loss of production, revenues and profits, leading to job losses caused much anxiety. The whole manner in which the virus’ impact is playing out has exposed the fragility of the world and our own vulnerabilities as human beings.
Then, just a month ago, things became even more horrific as India’s healthcare system was suddenly overburdened by the alarming rise in cases and one after another, people began losing their lives to the deathly attack of the virus. All of a sudden, there was a shortage of oxygen all over the country and people gasped for breath. Many people have lost their lives ― people of all ages, young and old. Families have been devastated as friends, relatives and co-workers succumbed to the virus.
The dismal scenario emerging out of situations from COVID-19 seems to be throwing the mental stability of people out of gear.
In these times of severe anxiety leading to elevated levels of stress and vulnerabilities, spiritual tools like Rajyoga meditation can come to our rescue as a God-sent gift. Practising Rajyoga meditation ensures that we remain calm, stable and healthy and in control of the situation.
In the deep silence of meditation through connecting to the inner self, we can generate positive and powerful self-affirmations that reinforce positive and powerful thoughts, replacing weak thoughts of worries and anxiety.
Try the following self-affirmations:
“I am a powerful soul and I have a strong and powerful immune system.”
“I have a strong resistance power that protects my body.”
“I have a healthy body.”
“The positive energy of my soul supports my body to perform all the work and daily activities.”
“I am blessed to be victorious in all situations and circumstances.”
“I am under the canopy of the Supreme Power and am receiving His vibrations of power and healing that is protecting me from the infection of the virus.”
“I will be victorious over COVID-19.”
The affirmations will help us to receive the vibrations of power and peace from the Supreme Power. We will become an embodiment of strength and our physical bodies will become strong and immune to the virus. Our minds will become free from all worries and turn stable and strong to fight the onslaught of the virus.
The positive self-affirmations can be done early morning and later in the night, while retiring for sleep. This is real service done at the mind level that all of us can and should engage in.
It is of paramount importance that we remain absolutely calm and be detached observers to the flow of events and not allow ourselves to be drawn into fruitless discussions and conversations.
Rajyoga meditation not only allows self-healing, but when done by a large number of people, the vibrations of peace and power spread from us to all over the globe, across boundaries of nations, while sitting at home.
At times like these, it is the strength and power of the inner frame of thoughts that allow us to be stable and anchored to our inner self to address the crisis at hand with equipoise and balance.
Brahma Kumaris is the largest spiritual organisation in the world led by women. It was the founder, Prajapita Brahma Baba, who chose to put women in the forefront. Founded in India in 1937, Brahma Kumaris has spread to over 140 countries and has had an extensive impact in many sectors as an international NGO. However, their real commitment is to helping individuals transform their perspective of the world from material to spiritual.
