Meditation a state of thoughtless awareness that one enters. It is achieved spontaneously from within. It is not
dependent on creative visualization or a repetition of mantras and it is not a hypnotic trance. To reach this state, one needs
put their attention on the top of the head and to watch or witness their thoughts without participating in them.
Inner energy a living, mothering energy within us is sleeping within the sacrum bone at the base of the spine. The
key to Sahaja Meditation is its ability to awaken the Inner energy and make it rise to and out of the top of the head. When
this happens we get our connection, union, our Self-Realization. It is a spontaneous happening that one is meant to have.
No amount of money can pay for it, instead all one needs is the sincere desire to be one with ones self.
3 channels of energy. Left side deals
with the past, our conditionings, habits and emotions, the feminine aspect that exists within everyone. At extreme imbalances,
people become overly passive, lethargic and self-indulgent enough to commit suicide. Right side deals with the future, our
ego, thoughts and actions, the masculine aspect present within everyone. At extreme imbalances, people become overly aggressive
and ego oriented enough to take the life of another. Central channel is the present aspect of time, the perfect balance between
the left and right sides and is the path of evolution.
There are 7 wheels of energy along our
spine that regulate different aspects of our emotional, physical, mental, social aspects of our live. When out of balance,
the enemies of the centers take control 1. lust 2. anger 3. greed 4. attachment 5. jealousy 6. vanity 7. doubt in God.
Transformation - when the Inner energy rises, She cleans our individual centers and balances out the 3 channels. The
short-term benefit to this is we enjoy a peaceful, blissful meditation with little or no thoughts. The long-term benefit is
that through this connection with the Inner energy, our lives begin to gradually improve. By our heightened awareness, negativity
that shadows us begins to drop away. Through the light of introspection, we begin to witness our lives through new eyes and
enjoy the play of it.
