How good is your FQ?

We’ve all heard of IQ (Intelligence Quotient), EQ (Emotional Quotient) and SQ (Spiritual Quotient). All these will not work, unless you are strong on FQ (Fun Quotient). A good FQ keeps negative emotions from developing. Scientific studies increasingly indicate a healing effect of laughter and light-hearted experiences on the mind, body and soul, which they say bring about changes in the brain chemicals that alter mood and immune functions. Absence of fun in whatever you do results in stress, absenteeism, low morale and output, and poor performance.
As humans, we like enjoyment and seek entertainment in all that we do. In fact, the times are such that if a product does not entertain us, we switch to another one. How often have you felt the need to change your mobile phone simply because its FQ is low? How quickly do you change the channel on the telly when a programme fails to entertain you? How often have you felt like changing your partner when he/she becomes ‘uncool’? We love people who are ‘so much fun’, don’t we? Even newspapers for that matter, strongly follow the entertainment instinct. News today is packaged in such a way so that it informs in an entertaining manner.
Recently there was an article in The Times of India about cyberslacking – the term coined for those who spend time in the office chatting online. Apparently, nowadays one-fifth of an employee’s office time is spent in chatting. While that’s not pleasant news for employees, it pays to look at what makes chatting more enjoyable than working. And if work were to become fun and if colleagues were to become close pals, would employees spend that amount of time chatting online?
The FQ factor has its influence in everything that you do. It improves performance dramatically. Perspectives change. Therefore energy patterns change. What earlier looked boring, suddenly changes colour, form and value. Attitudes change for the better. And life becomes fun to live. In other words, the FQ factor takes over everything that we do – be it brushing our teeth, sending an email, meeting deadlines, whiling away time in a traffic jam, dealing with health issues, et al.
Often most people spend too much time doing and thinking of unpleasant or non-rewarding activities. They often live in the past recounting unpleasant memories and trudge along in life carrying the heavy burden of depressing past experiences. If this thought has occurred to you, it is time to calculate your FQ.
Fun activities could also mean incorporating light-hearted activities that refresh you. Identify your passions, interests, hobbies, etc., and get in touch with them. Allot a time of the day for such activities and indulge in them in small ways. These are huge energy boosters and can sustain you through the rigours of daily living.
Every weekend make a defined plan for a significant FQ activity. Once you have this time set aside, guard it as a sacred appointment. Re-evaluate your strategies after a few weeks and check if your FQ factor is higher.

Who has the time?

  • “Nowadays there is just no time…”
  • “Today’s generation has no patience for anything, I tell you..”
  • “I have so many dreams…I want to achieve this, this and this..”
  • “I feel so tired nowadays.”

    Do these statements sound familiar? Have you ever wondered why you feel “time flies so fast nowadays”? Should we blame it on the pace of our life or the times we live in? Well, the blame for this hurry-hurry zindagi lies in the changes in the earth’s frequency!
    Believe it or not, the Earth behaves like an enormous electric circuit. It has a frequency of its own and also an energy budget. Since several decades, the earth's background base frequency or ‘heartbeat’ (called Schumann Resonance or SR) has been measured at 7.8 cycles per second. This was once thought to be constant; in fact, global military communications were developed on this frequency.
    However, since 1980, this frequency has been rising dramatically - to 11.2 cycles some time back, and recent reports indicate the frequency to be as high as 13. Science doesn't know why, or what to make of it. This ordinarily means that a 24-hour day actually equates to only 16 hours a day today! In other words, time is speeding up!
    At the same time, the field strength of Earth's gravity is dropping at an alarming rate. According to reports, in the last few years, the earth’s magnetic north has been moving pretty fast as well. Science acknowledges SR as a sensitive indicator of temperature variations and worldwide weather conditions. Scientists believe the fluctuating SR may be a factor in the severe storms, floods, and weather of recent years.
    The geomagnetic field of this planet has been growing weaker very gradually for about 2,000 years. It was at about 4 gauss then and about 500 years ago started dropping down at a quicker rate. Right now the geomagnetic field measures at a mere .4 gauss. The field has also become erratic and is affecting the migratory paths of many species that rely on internal senses tuned in to the geomagnetic lines of force that have been stable for thousands of years. Migratory birds are now going to the wrong locations and whales and dolphins are beaching themselves because the lines now move into land whereas earlier they did not.
    So what effect does all this have on us?
    Exactly what I mentioned before – lack of time, too many things too soon, lack of patience, and an inability to focus. It also translates into truncating and shortening everything to fit in a 16-hour time frame. The effect is seen in everything – from the way we flick channels on the remote, to the way we multitask while doing our daily activities. Why, even the pace of our breathing has become faster.Is there anything we can do about it? Well, the earth is too powerful a magnet. If it’s power has to be countered, only a collective effort may help. Controlling and slowing down our breathing will alter our frequency levels, and when many people do it collectively, the frequencies around us will change.

The earlier workshop was very satisfying for both the participants and for me.


The workshop was really a perfect blend of knowledge,enthusiasum and energy hope we continue to share the same thru the group.

Thanx for the workshop. Already operationalized some measures & what' s great is that they seem to be working.

Well Sridhar, it was indeed a wonderful experience & m looking forward to level when are we planning for that ??

oh boy.. sridhar sir,, you have no idea ow much the energy's been shaken in these past few weeks.. please inform us abt the other workshops as well..

Well, I too found the workshop to be very educational....Other than the learnings that came out of the workshop, I was happy to have met people who yearn to lean on their spiritual sides, are positive and openminded. I came to the workshop with the experience of energy leaking out and left with the knowledge to prevent it.
