Few wonderful Feedbacks received from Batch 1 members

..My cycles initially got aligned to full moon and then to new moon.. was able to conceive my 2nd child with the help of that… our biggest gratitude to you for that 🙏🏽🙏🏽 was getting more awareness about the body and periods.. was able to use cloth pads for almost one and half year.. since I am pregnant not able to practice for last 6 months.. hopefully will be able to renew after the baby comes

Past one week I have suddenly felt very deep awareness. Usually my cycles jump 2-5 days earlier and sometimes I was not remembering the dates past few months due to hectic schedule.
Last month I felt a lot of irritation and anger.
This month somehow I was aware a week before as I cud feel the changes in my body. I could almost sense it will start by 28th 3 days earlier than last month. I was very restless on Saturday and cud sense it but had decided not to lose my cool. I was successful and able to finish all my planned activities.
Last 2-3 days I cud feel I wanted to do grounding

After the workshop in these 5 months, 4 months I was able to do the practices during cycles. I was not able to do all the 3 days… but I did for 2 days almost in all months. I am not sure whether I have done everything perfect but I did.
What I felt was
💐My irritation before cycles have been reduced.
💐earlier before a week itself will be shouting to everyone. Now reduced. Even my pain I could manage.
💐My cycles have been aligned to moon cycles. This time cycles started on a day after new moon day.

Initially when I started I was not sure how cycles will be aligned. Now I am surprised.
Grounding Meditation helped me a lot.

Mostly I get my cycles on full moon day as I had set intention to get on that day two years ago.
I assumed aligning to moon cycle is getting cycles on full moon.
After this program, this month I got 5 days after full moon that is today. It will move to Amavasya soon.
For past few months I have severe emotional issues. It was on and off. Not clear what was happening.
I started my menstrual practice in the evening.
I had mild pain and tiredness. Once chanting was over, pain and tiredness gone away. But still had some blockages inside emotionally.
I tried contracting muscles exercise but couldn’t do properly.
So I decided to do along with Anna’s voice. Played menstrual meditation and did my exercise.
Tears were flowing. Didn’t want to control.
While doing in the lap of mother meditation, I started crying badly. But I feel relaxed.
I am feeling inner silence now.

For the first time, I was looking forward for my menstruation dates. 😊
Most often, days before my menstruation or around those dates I would have super busy schedules, loads of physical work, travels, or unexpected change of events. This time too was no exception.
Although I remembered few of the practices we did during the workshop, thanks to my friend for sharing her notes when I needed the most.
I enjoyed doing the chanting, let go practices and the grounding meditation. Felt like a reset, more peaceful, more vibrant and more in tune with my body, mind and soul. It was like…I was welcoming myself into me, accepting myself completely.
My sincere gratitude to Velu Anna 🙏

..my first practice did not lead me anywhere as I was keen in doing things right rather than being involved as there was a gap . But I started observing my body through the cycles .

..these observations included how I gain weight , when do I bloat , when do I feel light , what time of eating makes me feel better , which is the trigger for my mood swing and so on . I was happy to achieve that level of observation for my own body

..the second cycle practice was more than exciting . I could not feel any pre cycle cramps in leg or abdomen . Also no much pain during the cycle , the bleeding was normal without clots and I was at ease as I practiced on all three days.

..One thing that surprised me was ( May be silly) during the let go meditation somehow I got a thought to let go of my 5 year old son . Which was out of my understanding, and I felt I should go with the flow of thought . Just as I finished the meditation , still eyes closed I hear my son saying out of nowhere that he wants to come and sit on my lap. This can be a coincidence but I was moved.

When you set the right practice, automatically along with treatment, you will become better.

Butterfly Meditation

Just like we must be careful and choosy about the food that strengthens our body, we must be equally watchful of our thoughts entering our mind. In this fast paced life, it’s easy to get drowned in chaos and confusion. The only solution to wriggle out of this is Meditation.

Meditation is the fuel to our soul. It is the beginning and the end of what we are. It is not an option or a chance, but “the perfect solution” to progress in this journey of life.

Be it season, food, or mood, we easily get bored with single option. Variety is the spice of life. It is important to learn few methods so that we implement them according to our needs, apart from refreshing our minds. That’s why our ancestors followed and guided us with various techniques for generations.

I have been learning meditation from the age of 13. After learning from n number of gurus, teachers, books, etc., I lost (invested) my life and future in this. I’m sharing only those methods that I have learnt from my experiences and intuition. If you practice regularly, you will see noticeable changes in yourself.

We started with our first technique which was very successful – D.E.A.R Meditation. This technique focused on chakras to expand our body to 4th layer – intellectual body. This is an ideal method of meditation that helps you in balancing your day-to-day family life while keeping you spiritually centered. We have finished three batches of D.E.A.R meditation successfully at Chennai, Bangalore and Online. You can read the feedback here in comments section.

You can read the feedback here in comment section https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XEAc0abByNk&t

It’s time to take the next step and elevate your experience with an advanced technique that will make you go deeper. Since the process is little complex, we will learn it part by part and then assemble it together at the end. Then you can practice it on your own. Depending on the participation, we can come up with a group meditation. This method is for spiritually inclined individuals.

We are opening the doors of opportunity to everyone, irrespective of physical distance @ Hyderabad after successful sessions in Bangalore, Chennai and Online. The upcoming session will be conducted in Hyderabad on Dec 17th (9 AM – 5 PM).

Lets get ready for an energy transformation and fly like a butterfly in your mind!

Whole Black Urad Dal Laddoos

Healthify your snacks!

When I tried Homemade Sathu Maavu laddoos and shared with my friends and family, I got more requests, motivation and confidence to try other varieties of laddoos. No one cannot say no to these healthy laddoos right? 🙂

This time I tried with Unpolished Whole Urad Dal which I bought from the monthly grocery shopping from HLP Store. We all know how Black Urad helps all the women to strengthen their hip region. This is one of the best dishes for the young girls who are nearing / just attained / started puberty.

Also it can be considered as the ultimate post-workout laddoo for the health conscious people! It has the right amount of minerals, energy for your body!

Here is the recipe I followed for making these yummy and healthy laddoos.

INGREDIENTS:

METHOD:

  • In a pan, dry roast urad dal until it turns crispy, on a low flame without burning.
  • After it turns crispy, cool down and make fine powder in mixer along with jaggery powder & cardamom powder.
  • If you like the crunchy texture, coarsely grind the urad dal. For kids, it’s better to make it fine powder.
  • Add ghee and check the consistency. You should be able to hold the laddoo shape when you roll it with hands.
  • You can also coarsely grinded dry roasted cashews to get the nutty flavor or add the crushed ones.
  • Roll them into laddus and store them in an air tight container.

Healthy Sathumaavu Laddoos

We started using Sathu maavu at our home when my grandma was feeling weak and fatigued. At the same time my sister also delivered a baby, and she was in search for food items that can give her better strength & health.

As preparing of this mavvu/powder at home itself from scratch is time consuming process (sprouting, drying, roasting and powdering), my mom started to use a store-bought famous brand. But we were not satisfied as it increased our body weight.

So, we started to make our own powder at home, and it was super food for babies & adults. As days passed, we couldn’t prepare it due to daily workload, unavailability of people and arranging good quality ingredients.

After I joined HLP community, I understood the importance of avoiding 5 whites and wanted to replace milk at home. I was eagerly waiting for this product in HLP Store, as it is the one place, we could buy trusted products.

 I started to make kanji with this sattu mavvu. Sometimes I add ginger, jeera, onions, and fresh coriander leaves and it would be my first drink in the morning after having water on empty stomach. If you have 1 glass of this kanji, you will not feel hungry or fatigue until lunch. Unfortunately, my kids and husband are not very fond of this health mix.

But I wasn’t ready to compromise on their health. Being a mother, you need to learn tweaking healthy foods into whole family’s diet, understanding their taste buds and body needs too. I made laddoos out of it so that they can also enjoy Satthu as healthy snacks.

Heartful gratitude to HLP World Store for bringing this product for us. Hope all start to reap the benefits of this wonderful product.

Sharing the recipe, I followed for making the delicious laddoos. Hope you all try this and share the feedback.

INGREDIENTS:

METHOD:

  • Dry roast the Sathu Maavu Mix for 2-3 minutes in low flame. Make sure not to over-roast/burn it.
  • Transfer to mixing bowl and allow it to cool.
  • Chop the deseeded dates, coarsely grind the nuts, jaggery and ghee.
  • Add to the roasted powder and mix well.
  • Roll them into laddus and store them in an air tight container.

TIPS

  • If you use jaggery syrup, make sure you finish the dish in 15 days.
  • If you use dry jaggery powder, the shelf life is more.
  • Add a pinch of Himalayan salt to enhance sweet taste.
  • Adjust ghee as per your needs
  • You can add your own creative culinary ideas, like you can add  dry rose petals.
