“You look nervous. Your palms are sweating. Your body is trembling…. People around you are joking and rejoicing, however you are not enjoying it, nor are you even interested in anything that’s going on outside. What happened?”

“There are knots forming in my stomach. I am feeling uneasy. I am afraid.”

“Afraid of…?”


“Oh, its exam time! However, if exams is the cause, every student should be having these symptoms, isn’t it? Can you just observe the thoughts traversing in your mind right now?”

“I think I will not be able to write well in the examination. I shall not remember anything in my exam. I cannot pass as I don’t know anything. I am sure I will fail this time; therefore, I do not want to give my exams at all. What do I do? “

It’s the fear of failing in exam that is causing all this. When you find yourself totally depressed and self-negativity starts within, it is best to change your thought process. So, do the following:

• Sit in a relaxed manner and repeat the phrase, ‘I am full of infinite knowledge’ 100 times.
• Sitting in a quiet place with your eyes closed and chanting God’s name for 15 minutes, is equally helpful. Ask God for strength.
• And surrender whole-heartedly to God. When one surrenders to the One who is fearless, one becomes permanently fearless.
• And then go and give your exam paper. Yes, just go and give it!

You have studied the whole year round, and you are already prepared for the exam too. However, due to certain psychological effects, you get nervous and feel depressed.

The above-mentioned steps help nullify the adverse psychological effect that has set within you for some reason. And now, with your positive attitude and God’s grace, the outcome will be good!

If you intend to get rid of such psychological effects forever, you must understand the root cause behind it. The wrong beliefs that have taken hold over us since a very long time are the reason behind the fears arising in the worldly interactions from time to time.

Have you ever asked yourself, ‘What is my true identity?’ Do you really know who are you?

In reality you are an eternal Soul. But it is currently hidden beneath a veil of ignorance. Due to this, you are unable to experience the true Self. The true Self has no fear component at all. Whatever fear you can see currently is temporary and will leave after giving its effect. Once you understand this fact, you will gradually stop fearing all that is transitory and get established in the state of fearlessness from all angles.

With the grace of the Gnani Purush, the Spiritual Master, Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan once you attain the age of 18, it is possible to realize your true Self via a scientific process called Gnan Vidhi, the Self Realization ceremony. Thereafter, you will not only understand that you are a Pure Soul, but you will also experience your true bliss!!

Author's Bio: 

Ambalal M. Patel was a civil contractor by profession. In June 1958, spontaneous Self-Realization occurred within Ambalal M. Patel. From this point on, Ambalal became a Gnani Purush, and the Lord that manifest within him became known as Dada Bhagwan. A Gnani Purush is One who has realized the Self and is able help others do the same. Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan used to go from town to town and country-to-country to give satsang (spiritual discourse) and impart the knowledge of the Self, as well as knowledge of harmonious worldly interactions to everyone who came to meet him. This spiritual science, known as Akram Vignan, is the step-less path to Self-realization.
