All over world, human beings believe they can find solutions to their problems in new products, medicines and technology. Most aren’t aware that deep within themselves resides a most potent and transformational energy. What if there was a simple method for you to tap into the power and energy lying deep within you, allowing you to better yourself emotionally, physically and mentally? Sahaja Meditation is just that — a system of guided mental relaxation and inner balancing techniques that can bring about profound spiritual and emotional calm, wellness and clarity. Sahaja Meditation was first introduced in 1970 by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi and it since has reached over 75 countries. When practiced correctly, you can feel energetic vibrations on your fingertips and even viscerally experience the all-encompassing Divine as a subtle cool breeze. Self awareness is the key to enlightenment in many of the great spiritual traditions and Sahaja Meditation helps you reach a deep and absolute understanding of your Self.
How does Sahja Meditation increase self awareness?
In Sahaja Meditation, there are simple techniques for cleansing, balancing and nourishing energy centers known as chakras. Each chakra is directly associated with a different area on the physical body, as well as different aspects of the psyche and the spirit’s well-being. By making you more deeply aware of the energetic and spiritual aspects of your self — through a gradual establishment of mental silence — Sahaja Meditation can help you transcend “stuck” or limited perspectives. It catapults you deeply into the present moment, awakens the kundalini energy, and envelopes you in a powerful state of thoughtless awareness.
How does meditation clear the mind?
What ultimately arises from “thoughtless awareness” is powerful, clarified attention. Rather than having your mind drag through the past and anxiously race into the future, your mind is emptied of the chronic distractions and projections it is normally preoccupied with. Sahaja Meditation techniques liberate you from an overactive or troubled mind by increasing the split-second gap between one thought and the next one and allowing you to remain in the calm void of thoughtless awareness for as long as you wish. Starting on this path of transformation can happen in just a few minutes if you are open and receptive to it. Your experience with meditation is more than a quick-fix, it is a journey rather than a destination.
What kind of people practice Sahaja Meditation?
Tens of thousands of people of all ages practice Sahaja Meditation, encompassing all cultures, beliefs and religious backgrounds, in over 75 countries around the world. While the largest portion of beginners embarking on the journey of meditation are adults, Sahaja Meditation can highly benefit children, their well-being during the often challenging teenage years and their studies (as evidenced by Sahaja Meditation sites at universities). Sahaja Meditation is equally popular among men and women. There are local Sahaja Meditation Meetups which are always open and free to the public in various cities.
What are the benefits of practicing Sahaja Meditation?
Sahaja Meditation is a powerful stress-relief strategy. Regular Sahaja Meditation practitioners enjoy a noticeable decrease in the raw, nagging stress that comes along with our modern work and lives. There’s more than just anecdotal evidence to support this stress-relief claim — there is ample clinical and scientific research which attest to the benefits of Sahaja Meditation.
Sahaja Meditation reduces anxiety and depression. Meditation can help with anger management issues, compulsive anxious and negative thinking, and help boost poor self-esteem. It can also greatly uplift a person’s mood and sense of well-being, without the help of medications. Scientific research confirms that it is helpful for menopausal symptoms, respiratory problems and severe headaches.
Sahaja Meditation increases personal happiness and productivity. Those who regularly practise meditation, inner balancing techniques and achieve a strong state of thoughtless awareness are often found to be emotionally more grounded, balanced and optimistic than those who have never explored their inner self. Learning how to silence the mind can also lead to big gains in productivity, when you apply the same skills to work projects and human relations.
