It was still dark when I left home that morning in mid-February 2019. I didn’t have much of an idea of how to get the place for this LETs Release programme by 7C. Also, it wasn’t in Kuala Lumpur and I was anxious if I will be able to get there by 6am. And with no morning coffee!

The programme I’d signed up for was called LET’s Release. It was described as follows: ‘This is a unique session to help you with deep-rooted emotional traumas. These traumas could have been experienced in this lifetime or previous ones. You do not need to remember each and every trauma in order to release them. Sometimes, people experience hurdles which include prayers being unanswered or projects failing. Others experience ulcers, abdominal pain, indigestion, stomach discomforts and other ailments. Our unique method of releasing these traumas will help you look at your life in a more positive manner.’

I knew that LETs Release was just what I was looking for. I am 48 years old and have been married for 10 years and we don’t have any children. I’ve been leading a happy and contented life with good family and friends. Passionate about work, I love that I get to travel for business.

Suddenly last year, everything came crashing down. I felt really low and depressed. In the beginning, I thought it was just a short phase. Day after day, though, it just got worse until I could not wake up in the morning. I couldn’t go to work. I couldn’t talk to people. I was suffering from anxiety attacks and was often in a state of panic. I started to seek help because I was desperate to get back to how I used to be.

In my search I remembered Andrew Rajan and 7C Life RealiZation Centre. I had lost touch with both for more than five years. I managed to contact him and he told me to join their meditation classes on Thursdays and Sundays. I did. In the beginning, the meditation helped me calm down during the session, but my depression and anxiety would return the next morning.

Still, I continued to regularly attend meditation classes. I received a lot of encouragement and support from everyone at 7C Life and SwamiGuru. In the process, I learned about this LETs Release sessions which were meant to help in cleansing the solar plexus chakra. If something emotional or traumatic has happened, this is usually where all the negative energies are stored.

With all this in mind, my opportunity to take part in my first LETs Release session came on 16 February 2019. This session, I was informed, was particularly special because SwamiGuru was going to conduct it.

I managed to get to the Konifer Forest Eco Park in Janda Baik, Pahang by 6 am. There were about 30 of us there. I always loved nature and felt really at home in Janda Baik. SwamiGuru made it very easy by joking and showing simple steps to get ready during the warm up session.

We were then told to spread out and choose a spot somewhere along the path. For one moment, I was again anxious because I didn’t know if I could do it right and benefit from the session. Still, it was too late to turn back. I took a deep breath and we started.

The first part of this session was that we had to speak in tongues or gibberish. As legend has it, the word ‘gibberish’ comes from the Sufi mystic, Jabbar. Jabbar didn’t speak in a proper language, but uttered nonsense. He told his disciples that their minds were nothing but gibberish. Once this gibberish was cleared, they would be able to identify their being.

It was absolutely what I needed to let go. I didn’t have to think of any words. I thought of something and immediately let it go by blabbering. This released as lot of the blocks in my mind.

The second part of the session, to shout and release all the pain, hurt and frustrations felt even better. I was relieved. I felt good because for the first time in my life, I could just release my emotions without worrying what people would think or fear that I might hurt someone else.

The third part was to meditate and let the music repair and heal me. It was very soothing and comforting especially in the environment of being surrounded by Mother Nature. Finally, we showed our gratitude to Mother Nature by placing a flower at the foot of the tree. We looked up an thanked the Divine. It made me feel complete and at peace.

After this, it was time for coffee!

During the subsequent Q&A Session, I couldn’t help but ask SwamiGuru if I could practise this more often. Could I share it with others? This will help so many people I know. I was so keen to share it. There are many more people out there who are suppressing and keeping the hurt, frustrations and pain inside. They don’t let all this go and it eats them up slowly. This subconsciously makes me judgemental and blocks me from receiving good things and feeling good about myself

Doing the LETs Release programme has transformed my life in so many ways. Now, I can accept myself just as I am. I don’t look at only my weaknesses or faults. Instead, I am excited and confident that I can be happy and nothing is impossible for me to achieve.

I’m very grateful and inspired by Swami Guruji for his guidance and contribution as well as all the members of 7C Realization Center who so generously reach out and genuinely help people live a better life. I wish everyone the best and believe everyone can have an awesome life.
