What is the principle?

Each one of us possesses infinite competencies.

ये मे मतमिदं नित्यमनुतिष्ठन्ति मानवाः।
श्रद्धावन्तोऽनसूयन्तो मुच्यन्ते तेऽपि कर्मभिः

yē mē matamidaṅ nityamanutiṣṭhanti mānavāḥ.
śraddhāvanth anasūyanth mucyantē tē.pi karmabhiḥ

 (whosoever) (my) Matam (opinion, suggestion) Idaṅ (this) Nityam (regularly) Anutiṣhthanti (practice, follow) Mānavāha (people)
Śhraddhāvantah (with full faith) Ansūyantah (without doubts, suspicions) Muchyantē (are freed) (they) Api (also) Karmabhihi (from actions)

Whosoever believes in this principle without any doubt and with full faith, those will never get trapped and trodden by the work and environmental effects, whether happy or unhappy!

This is a wonderful trick presented by Lord Krishna. This is the real mantra of follwoing the tested-ok principle of attaining peace within and excellence in actions. (appears in Chapter 3 Verse 31 of Śri Bhagwadgītā).

What is the starting point?

Do these statements appear familiar? This is how confusion emerges!

  • ‘Our son doesn’t listen to us’,
  • ‘My husband and I don’t get along’,
  • ‘I want to quit this job, but I don’t know what to do’,
  • ‘I want to start something on my own, bit confused, how to’
  • I have four months to start my post-graduation and I want to do something good in it. What to do?
  • ‘My project client is bothering me for no reason, and I am about to lose my job’,
  • ‘Certification in Agile or in Big Data?’,
  • “Things are going very bad. Should I sell this factory and get another job or continue?”
  • ‘Both of my children are abroad for education. What should they do next? ‘
  • ‘I used to sketch very nice. I don’t do it now. I want to stop working and just focus on it, what can I do?

What is it?

At times we forget these competencies. It ither decelerates our journey or at times brings it to a halt.
Personal counselling is all about creating conducive environment to lead to sorted thought process eliminating the confusion.
It is all about generating the conviction within.

What do I do when I offer counselling & coaching?

  • I ask questions empathetically with patience.
  • I assist in finding answers.
  • I note down the answers
  • I make mind-maps, draw synergies.
  • I communicate the expressions in the simple form and people call them as easy solutions.
  • I become a buddy to my clients.
  • I become a co-passenger in my client’s journey from confusion to conviction.
  • I develop sustaining conviction.

What is the method?

9 minutes Audio: As the individual approaches, after initial brief discussion, I request the person to send the audio recording to me expressing whatever connected to the confusion, dilemma, situation that the person is going through.
My self-work on the audio: I listen to the audio very carefully for at least 3 to 4 times. I develop my questions and interactions avenues.

Three patterns:

  • One time counselling, 1 to 3 sessions in total 60 min time investment.
  • Taking this forward to chalk-out the strategy. Takes another 90 minutes discussion
  • Leading the person till his or her destination.
