Highlights of this post:
immense amount of Love could He have to keep showering it all on us all and still overflowing. In my previous experiences I had shared how Baba etched a path for me in life and how He kept showering His Love on me and my family no matter what I do, where I am and whatever mistakes I commit He still loves me like a mother does. Many of You would agree that we have love Him, felt neglected by Him, as well as fought with Him passionately but no matter what we do He is irresistible and we just cannot live without Him or stay away from Him for too long and I am no different either. What would we do without Him. Without taking much of anyone’s time, let me share the wonderful blessings of Baba with all of you. Before narrating, I would briefly mention that in my last experience I had mentioned that I had prayed to our Baba to bless me with a good job, a wonderful groom for my sister and secretly had another wish in mind and left them to Our Baba to take care of them as I was tired of carrying the burden on my shoulders. Here are my previous experiences for those who wish to read them at leisure. (http://www.shirdisaibabaexperiences.org/2012/10/sai-my-father-sai-devotee-arathi.html)
For those who have read my previous experience would know what I am about to mention below. I was on such a threshold of life that it was absolutely impossible for me to make a choice of what do I go ahead with as a priority. I have been married for 6 years now with no kids, I had a very unsatisfying job that was killing my potential and a sister for whom I have been looking for a suitable groom for the last 4 years. My mother being a single parent was sick worried cause none of the matches that came in worked out. And with the kind of experiences that my sister was having meeting the potential grooms she was getting cynical day by day, and was discouraged to get married in the first place which added to my mother’s worries and I had to act as their sounding board or the one in the middle making peace between them both. Since there are no male members in my near family except for my husband to take care of any marriage arrangements, I was postponing the idea of having a kid so that I could stay active and move about to help my mother with all the arrangements. But in the end when I could see nothing on the horizon, in despair, I left it to Baba saying–‘You know me better and You for sure know what the priority for me should be so I leave it up to You.’ Within no time (right after 2013 Diwali) I conceived and was very confused and panicked (as is my nature to be in a condition to help and be of use to my mom if at all a marriage is on the cards) I kept looking for a groom for my sister in the meantime.
With Baba’s grace, the pregnancy was so smooth that even I sometimes doubted that I had a tiny little miracle inside of me. The stories that I heard from many women even a couple of my own friends that the 9 months are so difficult and the birth is even more taxing. I kept chanting Baba’s name every day and kept the Holy Satcharitra under my pillow. I never had nausea, a sore body, cravings, bloating, uneasiness, my bump was hardly visible and I did not have the pregnancy gait (waddle) either in fact I had nothing to be called as any side effects of being pregnant. Both my husband and me wanted to have a daughter and strangely I always had this feeling that I was carrying a girl, we had also started calling the baby by her pet name and she would move whenever her dad called her out or I sang Baba’s Bhajans to her. I reached my 32nd week smoothly and then it started to itch all over my body except for my tummy- my soles, my palms, my forehead, between the web of my fingers and I would scratch myself crazy. I Google to read about something called Cholestatis which was a condition where the liver is affected and in such cases the child is a still born. I was scared to death. I got all tests done but by Baba’s grace it was all negative but the itching won’t stop and my doctor informed that if it does not stop then she will have to induce me as my being so disturbed with no sleep would affect the baby as well.
On the way back, both my husband and me were quiet but then I chanted Baba’s name and said to Him. It is You who have decided to give the baby, now You only take care of the child. I know nothing. I questioned Baba on the Question and Answer site and He asked me to keep a lemon in front of Him and later keep it under my pillow which I did and within a day the itching stopped completely. I worked very comfortably till the 4th of July’2013 and took my maternity leaves from the 5th of July’14. My sister wanted to be with me when I delivered the baby so she had booked her tickets for the 29th of June, but she could not get leaves so she rebooked for a week later i.e. 6th of July. I still had a week - ten days to deliver as my due date was 17th of July. My sister landed on the 6th afternoon and the same night while we were playing carom I thought my water broke rather leaked but was not sure so I called my doctor and she asked me to come to the hospital. So all the three of us, my sister, my husband and me we went to the hospital signing songs on the way and while we were all in a pleasant mood, I in the back of my mind asked Baba –‘ Is this it? Is it the time?’ And He answered in Positive.
I was admitted saying I was in labour, I was surprised as I had no pain but could see the contractions on the monitor. The baby’s heartbeat was also being monitored which was normal and my doctor was being updated from time to time. I kept dilating but had very mild pain. My doctor came in at 6 a.m. the next day morning to examine and confirmed that the baby had passed stool inside as the water was completely green and they can’t wait any further as the baby may swallow the me conium. I was wheeled in to the OT (operation theatre) at 6.45 a.m. while my husband was asked to dress up for the OT. I was given anaesthesia waist down and we kept listening to Baba’s Bhajans while my doctor and her team were doing their job to get our bundle of joy out into this world, our world. Then came the moment when we both heard a shrill cry of our baby and the doctor brought the baby to us both and declared that it was a ‘girl’. Our joy knew no bounds and we were clearly in tears of Joy. Baba fulfilled our wish of having a lovely daughter. I had no pain or issues post delivery and I had started moving around normally from the very next day which was nothing more than a miracle after a C-Section.
You fulfilled my wish of staying fit and not bothering anyone Baba. Our daughter certainly is Baba’s Prasad. She is all of 5 months old now and very naughty and active and every time we look at her we thank Baba from the bottom of our hearts. The moment she was born my husband got promoted, my insurance cover-amount from the office increased and of all things the most important- my sister’s marriage got fixed! She was born on the 7th of July which is the 7th month of the calendar, in 2014 which if summed up brings a total of 7 and she was born in the 7th year of our marriage. Strange co-incidence may be, but certainly by Baba’s blessings. Baba never fails us. We might panic and get disturbed and worried from time to time but He very well knows what is right and when is the time that we deserve certain things. Love You Baba what more can I say, You have fulfilled 2 of my major wishes and that one little thing that remains- my career/job, that too I am not worried anymore as I have immense faith in You Baba. The moment I let go You have taken over Baba. I am trying to keep my Saburi Baba. Please bless all those who are reading Your wonderful Leelas and Bless them always. Please keep my head under Your Holy Feet and never let it rise up in pride or arrogance. “Om Sainathaya Namaha”. “Shri Sachidanand Sadguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai”.
jewel in the form of my daughter, He gave me job and He blessed me with good life partner and overall Baba is giving me the best in my life! I will share two beautiful experiences which I have experienced with My Baba.
Baba protected me during my delivery: In my 2nd quarter of pregnancy, my health got deteriorated and doctor suggested for saline injection on every alternative day till the delivery date. Just before my delivery day doctor said that the baby has not grown as expected and it has to operated and baby has to be kept in incubator and they planned for operation in the early morning of next day, Surprisingly my father-in-law brought me Udi and said that one of his friend had come from Shiridi and gave this Udi. My parents and in-laws were very much tensed and for everyone surprise, I got operated and my daughter was very fine and very active and doctors couldn’t believe this. Just 2 days before the operation, I had an early morning dream, in which I was playing with a small girl baby, and I was gifted the same baby! Baba showed my baby to me 2 days before she was born.
When I started searching my job, The market was very bad and I was not getting any interview calls, but once my mom took me to a newly built Baba Temple, where I asked Baba why was He testing me so badly, just after 2 seconds I got a call from a company and my interview was scheduled the next day and I got selected, but I lost the job in short time, but this time Baba gifted me with the better job with double the amount of pay and due to some reasons I had to quit the job, but I took Baba’s permission before doing so, again when I started searching the job, i was tested for some period, but finally I got a job and Baba is drafting my career in such a wonderful way that even I am not able to believe that I have worked with one of the top companies in the IT. Baba will never leave His children in darkness. I have done Sai 9 Guruvar Vrat and I have experienced the fruits of this Vrat. If you want to experience Sai Leela’s do Sai 9 Guruvar Vrat and you will surely post one of your experiences. Om Sai Ram.
First experience is on my 12th mark sheet that went missing while I was trying to file my H1 visa. I had carried all originals from India and have emptied our house in India. I had all documents except this, I was in tears. Then I prayed Sai and just finally asked my mom if she remembers where it was and by Sai's grace it was there in my dad documents file, we all were surprised in fact I started applying for a duplicate copy. Thank you Sai for once again proving, that You take care of Your kids at every stage.
Second experience is, when i was in vacation in India with my son, my husband was in US. Myself, my son and parents were suppose to travel to Shiridi on Thursday night. My son is 3.5 years old and he had a high temperature from Tuesday. I still had hopes, he will be ok by Thursday but when we took him to Doctor he asked me not to travel to Shiridi and my husband also asked me to cancel the trip but with faith on Sai, we all set out to Shiridi, even in train at midnight 3:00, he had 103 temperature. I was really scared as I took him against everyone but once we stepped to Shiridi he was like a normal kid, no symptoms of fever, tiredness. He was enjoying the trip a lot. Thanks to Sai again. Finally I would like to thank Sai again from the bottom of my heart as He helped me get to US miraculously too and also for guiding me at every step, I wish You could stay with all of us and bless us forever. Om Sai Ram.
As our life was moving very happily, we were hit by life with a big problem related to my health. We went through lot of mental agony and pain in one day because of the wrong hospital we have chosen which we did not know at that time. Although we have consulted two hospitals, everything was against our wish and was giving us lot of pain and disturbance. I prayed to Sai Baba just by having little belief after reading the Sai Baba miracles stories. Within one day, all our pain came to end as we thought of taking second opinion and went to a good hospital. Doctor spoke to us saying everything was alright and we can happily proceed further. I could see Baba in the doctor when she was talking to us about my problem. I really thank Sai Baba for showering His blessings on us. I promised i will read Sai Satcharitra and i will do that soon. Please have belief in God and God will solve all your problems.
