My family used to live on the East Coast of the USA at that time, the beginning of the 1980’s, and I had just started practising Sahaja Yoga. Before Sahaja Yoga I had an alcohol addiction. Shri Mataji advised me to try to quit drinking as my drinking habit was affecting my small daughter. I tried very hard, but was unable to get rid of the habit.‘What shall we do with you?’ Shri Mataji told me one day. She asked me to sit near Her and put Her thumb on my Sahasrara and pressed it hard. Then something unusual happened. I felt as if Her finger went deep inside my brain. This way She was working on me for a while. When I returned home I looked in the mirror and noticed that there was a circle on my head around my Sahasrara about half an inch in radius where my hair was short, as if singed due to a very high temperature. I never craved for alcohol again.
Shri Mataji did something very powerful to help me.
