How to Clear the Catches of the Collective

1. Collective shoe beat.

2. The best ways for the Collective to clear during their weekly programme:

a) Balance especially right side & then work on whichever chakra you are catching collectively.

b) Play Shri Mataji’s puja talk for that particular chakra.

Bhoots as opposed to Badhas

Bhoot - is stationed on one chakra.

Badha - moves from one chakra to another.

Further clarification around bhoots and badha as provided by Shri Mataji:

What is the difference between a "badha" and a "bhoot” and how to deal with them.

(An extract from "What is a Sahaja Yogi" -Seminar in Old Arlesford 1980.)

" Now one more question I will ask. Very simple, not so difficult. That, what is the difference between a badha and a bhoot?

How will you make out? A hindrance and a bhoot.

Yogi: Bhoots will move around.

Shri Mataji: And baddha?

Yogi: Stays still. Just describing, it’s a block.

Shri Mataji: He’s correct. What you said is correct but it is not absolutely precise. It is like this, I tell you. Is correct.

I mean what he says is the correct answer but is not so precise.

Badha will also move. I’ll tell you how. Badha is always on the centres or on your organs.

If it is, say, in your, for example, in the liver, this badha may come in the center and then it will start moving from your here to here as the

Kundalini will be moving. All right?

But badha doesn’t have its arbitrary movement. As you move the Kundalini, the badha moves. Badha means the hindrance. All right?

But a bhoot is arbitrary. It moves. It will be one moment here, it will be one moment there.

It will move this side, it will move that side. It will go to the right heart, then it will come to the left heart.

If it is arbitrary behaviour, that means it is not controlled by your movement of your fingers.

Through the Kundalini awakening then you must know it is a bhoot. All right?

Understand what I’m saying, that one thing is arbitrary, works on its own, and the another is in your control. You’re taking it out yourself.

Like you can say that if there’s some lump in the body, it may start moving with the, say, blood stream or something, some force acting upon it. But by itself, it does not. But if there’s a worm, living worm, it will move by itself.”
