* When the student is ready, the teacher appears

This a wonderful case demonstrating the above quote, well known  in the spiritual field. This client, a patient of my daughter, Padma Sripada M.D,  attended 9 of my classes (1), over the last 6 months.

“About six months ago I was diagnosed with Diabetes. It forced me to think about the way I was eating, and living my life. At about the same time, I also began to desire a closer and more consistent walk with God. I saw some information about C S (Suryanarayana Chennapragada) and his breathing techniques (1), and decided to contact him about applying the techniques to my life. I also wanted to find a way to be more focused in my thinking. Instead of having thoughts that flew everywhere, and went nowhere, I wanted to find a way to focus my thoughts into something constructive and meaningful.

I’ve been meeting with C S on a regular basis. I have found that the breathing modes, and focusing pointers, have improved my life in ways that are meaningful. I have grown spiritually and am able to speak with C S about thoughts and questions that I am interested in. Having times of meditation and quietness (2) has improved my well-being in so many ways – taking on better eating habits (3), relief from fibromyalgia pains (4), and being more aware of those around me. I look forward to continuing my journey toward a deeper well-being, and a closer walk with God. “

Her feedback two months after:
“My stress is reduced by 65%. Fibromyalgia pains are reduced by 35%. Focus improved by 70%. I have cut down on meat and white rice. I have introduced whole grains.”

(1) LEVEL I – Focusing on breathing
(2) She has very recently started practicing meditation, sitting quietly by herself. This is a big change from her past routine of being constantly busy.
(3) I have recently been reading several books on Nutrition and sharing their key points with my clients.
(4) She decided to avoid medications for Fibromyalgia pains.  Apparently the relaxation and better nutritional practices are reducing the pains.
(5) Seminars and classes

* Fibromyalgia pains mostly come down

Here is a remarkable report from a woman who suffered from Fibromyalgia pains for about 10 years and got mostly relieved from them by practicing the breathing and other techniques of this web site. She also experienced significant behavioral change. She attended only my introductory session and then practiced on her own, using the content of this web site.

“I am a very hyperactive person and have been fighting Fibromyalgia pains for about 10 years. For my fibromyalgia, my doctors suggested medication and advised me to be active. I do not like taking medications, hence I ruled out that option. I heard from friends that Yoga would help. I tried it but I kept spraining myself. I also tried meditation but couldn’t control the brain activity.

We live in New Jersey. Our family visited Albany NY in March2012. When our friend there heard about my Fibromyalgia pains, he suggested to talk to Suryanarayana Chennapragada (C S) about the technique called “Focusing on Breathing” that he was teaching. I had not heard of this technique before. When I called C S, he readily offered to teach this technique to me and my husband. During his two hour session, we were taught different ways of concentrating on our breathing.

I have been practicing the breathing technique every day, for the past 3 months. I practice it when I feel like I am getting stressed out. I always practice before going to bed. I use it during work, on my way to work, while driving kids around and when I go to bed. I also practice the ‘Level III – Meditation’ technique described in C S’s web site countingbreaths.com.

I gained these benefits in the last three months:
I have seen a tremendous change in me. It has helped me to be calm. Most of my fibromyalgia pains have come down. My family and friends have also commented about the change they saw in me. What I like most about the technique is that by using it, I can now calm myself on my own and take the stress away.

Even though I was at first apprehensive about trying this unknown technique, I am a big fan of it now. It gives me the independence from pain. It has also taught me to rely on myself. My husband also uses the technique and he says it has helped him as well.

I thank C S for teaching me this technique and having the patience to follow up with me.”
