This day, it became special. There are a few instances in life which effect and bring a unique experience with them. This case became one of them.
I take Yoga sessions and counselling (if required) for post-natal & pre-natal ladies in Jehangir Hospital, Pune. This day was a regular day and I went to General ward on 3rd floor. After completing that section, I walked in the Zodiac Ward which has recently been renovated and there is a very positive feeling, generally.
I knocked on the door of a prenatal state lady who I was told had PRoM (Premature Rupture of Membrane) 2 days back. As I opened the door, I saw a beautiful young lady on the bed who had a very anxious and worried look on her face but greeted me with a pretty smile. Although we were meeting for the first time, both of us instantly connected. Her husband offered me a chair and I introduced myself. She then told me her current status- “The Gynaecologist had told that as water was still leaking, she’ll have to terminate my pregnancy which is 25 weeks old!” This being her 1st pregnancy, she obviously was in lot of stress. She had a constant question on her face – “Why Me?” While narrating, she got very emotional.
I sensed her tension which was a big addition to her current state and that it would only worsen her situation.
She nodded almost immediately as I told her about the Yoga Relaxation and how after Relaxation, she would be able to calm down her anxiety. At that moment, I wanted her to relax at all costs. So, I gave her a full Yogic Relaxation and asked her to think of a positive Sankalpa (Resolve)! She completed the whole practice very nicely following each word said by me. Totally Connected!!!
After she opened her eyes with a beautiful smile, her face was very peaceful. I told her that a change of thought pattern mentally, & being positive, would help her situation physically. And she must connect herself to her Baby, feeling the strong connection, direct the Baby. The Baby will listen to Mom’s!
I believe very strongly that we humans, have the capability of overturning any situation from negative to positive and can control any physical state just by using our mental power.
Our talk was a long one! By the time I waved her goodbye, she was happy.
Next day, when I went to see her, she was already waiting and then I introduced Mahamrutyunjaya Mantra to her and told the one important benefit of this life-saving Mantra- the power of reviving health & life. She and her husband were very prompt to learn the mantra. I asked them to do it at least twice every day.
Day next, She had her Sonography and the couple looked very happy as the water level had risen and no infection, which was a great sign of retention. But slight leakage of water was still there. In this day’s practice, I gave her full Yoganidra with her Sankalpa.
By this day, she had grown very strong mentally and emotionally which was healing her physical state fast. Her gynaecologist also told them to wait, as her condition was improving.
Meanwhile, I talked about PRoM condition to one of my childhood friends, who is a renowned Gynaecologist, running her own hospital in Rajasthan very successfully. She explained the situation in detail to me and helped me clear all my doubts. Then, I explored Internet too, which says that premature delivery of about 27-28 weeks success rate is 67% now, but still, each case is individual , unique, and absolutely depends on the new-born Baby’s response to external medical help after it’s premature delivery.
I had to explain this to the couple, so that, they could prepare themselves mentally for the situation that might come up in near future.
So, my communication with the young couple continued for more than a week and we together saw ups-downs in her condition, but two important changes were prominently visible in her:
● One, this young pretty lady gained confidence and was mentally prepared to deal with the upcoming situation.
● Second, she had accepted her condition and was ready for good or worse.
When situation is out of our control, we must connect ourselves to the cosmic power which helps our positive energy to recollect and channelize. So, I gave them the chanting of the “32 names of Durga” which are extremely powerful and have the capacity to remove distress from life.
While she was still in hospital, I had to go out-of-town for some personal work. While I was away, I received the news of her preterm normal delivery which was a pleasant surprise (without inducing epidural), and that the Baby was small but healthy, responding well to the external treatment and care.
The couple has been in constant touch with me since then. The Baby is still in Neonatal Care and Doctors have started to give Mother’s Milk feed to the Baby. I sincerely pray every day for good development of the Baby, with the positive hope to hear the news of the Baby coming home soon!
I feel extremely blessed to the great knowledge of Yoga!
