An Individual Journey
"It’s an individual journey towards God when you meditate. And when you reach there, then you become collective. Before that it’s an absolute individual journey within, absolutely individual journey.
You should be able to see this that, in this journey, nobody is your relation, nobody is your brother, nobody is your friend. You are absolutely alone, absolutely alone. You have to move alone within yourself. Don’t hate anyone, don’t be irresponsible. But in meditative mood you are alone. No one exists there, you alone. And once you enter into that Ocean then the whole world becomes your family, the whole world is your own manifestation, all the children become your children and you treat all people with equal understanding.
The whole expansion takes place when you enter inside your Spirit and see through the eyes of the Spirit. There’s such calm, such peace, such bliss exists within you.
You have to be ready for that journey. That journey is alone in your meditativeness. And the more you find something in your meditation the more you want to go and distribute it to others. That has to be. If that does not come into you, then it has not worked out. There’s no purity. There’s some sort of a bias. In that individual pursuit, whatever you find you want to enjoy it with others, you want to give it to others. This is the sign of a person who has been really meditative."
- Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
You Need To Join The Collective
"But it is not just talking, it is not just saying something, but it's happening, it's an actualization that has to take place.
You'll feel that the journey of seeking is over. So now we'll have the experience of self-realization, which is very simple. It will hardly take 10-15 minutes. But later on, you have to come to the collective. We have very good Sahaja Yogis even in Belgium and Holland and you have to just come to the collective and try to fix your connection with the Divine."
- Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
Meditation At Home
Find A Quiet Place
Choose a quiet place at home for your meditation. Inviting nature into the space where you meditate can enhance the quality of your experience,
so consider incorporating natural elements into your room or practicing outdoors.
When To Meditate
Many Sahaja practitioners recommend meditating in the morning right after waking up,
when you are most alert and before the day’s demands get in the way.
Traditionally, it is recommended that you meditate twice a day, once in the morning and once before going to bed,
for durations ranging from 10 to 20 minutes. However, the practice of Sahaja is extremely flexible,
meaning you are the best judge of what works best for you in terms of place, time and duration.
So don’t be too hard on yourself, even if you miss a day. Rather than a strict routine,
meditation should be about enjoying the deep experience and measuring the benefits in every session.
How To Meditate
Sit comfortably on a chair or on the floor. Relax and close your eyes. After a few moments raise your inner energy.
You should begin to achieve the state of Thoughtless Awareness within a few moments.
Allow the Kundalini, your inner energy to take over and do this for you as much as you can instead of trying too hard to concentrate or focus.
If thoughts come at any time, merely watch your thoughts and allow them to pass by. Do not react to your thoughts or get absorbed in them.
Sometimes, you can tell yourself “Not this thought…”, and just let it go.
Playing some soft music can also help increase Thoughtless Awareness, although many prefer complete silence.
Try and feel the energy on your palms flowing through your fingers.
It can be a form of a cool breeze, pulsating sensations, tingling, warmth and sometimes heaviness.
It may take you several sessions and sometimes even a few weeks before you begin to experience these sensations.
You may also feel the energy at the top of your head in the form of a cool breeze or air coming out.
Sometimes it may be warm or a tingling which is a sign that your Kundalini, the inner energy is clearing blockages in you.
Sahaja Yoga Meditation is like a vast ocean. The more you progress in this journey, more knowledge gets revealed in your central nervous system.
So basically there is no need to learn everything on one day. It is like the growth of a little plant to a tree, the more it grows, it exhibits
more characteristics on its own. But if you feel like knowing more about ongoing researches and benefits and the experiences, etc. - you may visit following links:
