As millions of people wake up to a new reality triggered by the coronavirus, now is the time to get real about everything. We need real and powerful solutions. We need a sense of control and immense power in our hands to wage this war. And fight it on all levels – individual, family, neighborhood, community, country and world. Especially when it does not appear that immediately available medical solutions are available. Scientists, medical experts, and economists only guess and speculate. Nobody has a specific answer or solution for how things will turn out.
Enter the most powerful form of spiritual meditation based on an ancient energy that is at least 14,000 years old.
While the form of meditation we offer is 50 years old (it was founded in 1970), the underlying force behind it is known.
The Sahaja meditation is an extremely powerful form of meditation, which is a form of protection for holistic healing and for many aspects of our life. This includes protecting against harmful effects on our health, wellbeing, personality enhancement, relationship and even our financial wellbeing. Above all, however, it offers access to the unexplored and the forces lying there.
That average meditation that you've read about, or even tried, or that seems very popular – you have to throw it away now.
Enough of mental hocus-pocus and weak solutions like mindfulness and mere stress relief. Or try to look cool through meditation. We need something much deeper that has a stronger and longer-term impact. It should protect us from harm, heal our problems in many different ways, and take us to a new level in our evolution. It should help us find our purpose in life while giving us the security and confidence to deal with just about anything.
It is time to do a reality check of what real meditation is and should be. And how to incorporate one into your lifestyle.
Real meditation is extremely complex and requires focus, patience, and commitment.
Wait, doesn't that stop a lot of people from trying it out? For sure. But this is also the reason why stress relief meditation offers have blown off the shelves worldwide – they are easy to do. Sells and attracts people quickly and easily.
But Sahaja is a powerhouse that requires the initial investment of time, attention and focus. Once you learn how to fly an airplane versus riding a bicycle, you will become powerful and feel powerful. Much more. Meditation is not a quick fix, at least the most authentic, oldest ones weren't. Indeed, the true state of meditation that had access to higher consciousness was the de facto religion of the saints and highly developed people. So meditation was their religion. It was something they gave up everything else in their lives for.
Over time, human civilization has been stupid enough to turn this concept into a kind of watered-down religion and to separate meditation into a cool technique for stress relief. We always try to subdivide things that fit our idiocy and because we are unable to understand anything complex and deep. The human ego cannot bear not being able to understand something. We have to break it down, translate things, and make digestible packages out of it until we make sure the dumbest of us can get it. It doesn't matter if it leads to something radically different from what it was originally supposed to be.
Deep, spiritual meditation, the only original form, has been the victim of such practice and over thousands of years as human civilizations grappled with interpretations of this divine and natural gift that resides in every human being.
When you sign up for meditation, be ready for the long haul and ready to work hard on it over many months.
It works holistically and inside, outside.
Most other forms of meditation are based on cognitive aspects. Sahaja works simultaneously on your physiological, cognitive, emotional and spiritual level. It heals and improves every layer deep within you. Just fixing your state of mind is a band-aid at best. You don't need anything to clear your head, what you need is a higher state of existence that goes beyond the mind, where thoughts are minimal. And you can't just pretend everything is fine even with the temporary stress reliever ignoring the deeply ingrained emotional and spiritual problems.
An important strategy for Sahaja is therefore to allow the innate power within you to clear things up. Most other meditations are always doing something. Sahaja works instead through a combination of routine but also sensing the energy within you and allowing it to do its job.
It works preventively and proactively.
You can develop intuitive and sensory powers to identify problems in you well in advance of the symptoms and before the problems can cause much anger and sadness in your life. And it can be very precise when it comes to pinpointing the problem so you can work on it. Any other form of meditation is a cure after the symptoms hit you. And none of them solve your problems as deeply as Sahaja.
You need to constantly prepare to look inward and respond to the signals that your inner energy system is sending to you.
It is the best way to find out what science or medicine is left to find.
If you are the type who has realized that science is not the end of everything and that there are things in nature that you cannot touch, then Sahaja is your best bet to explore these aspects. No, these are not magical or voodoo-like things, or things that contradict scientific belief. These are aspects that are real and useful, but science has yet to fully explore and qualify them. For example, consider this:
A 2016 Sahaja meditation study using MRI brain structure imaging and voxel-based morphometry (Hernández et al., 2016) found that long-term Sahaja practitioners (compared to non-meditators) were not limited to the entire brain had a significantly larger volume of gray matter overall, but also specifically in the left ventrolateral prefrontal cortex and in the left insula – regions that are partially associated with emotional intelligence – as well as in regions of the right hemisphere (insula, ventromedial orbitofrontal cortex, inferior temporal and parietal cortex), which are associated with features, aspects of socio-emotional intelligence such as self-awareness, empathy, compassion, and altruism.
We are finding more and more that the science and studies conducted are slowly matching what Sahaja practitioners have viewed as unique benefits for decades.
Sahaja has the science to back its benefits, and you can look forward to using it in your practice to a variety of benefits. It can do a lot for you as long as you are ready to access it.
It gives you enormous reserves of energy, trust and patience when dealing with crises and problems.
These dainty stress reliever or mind calming apps are a pale shadow of what real meditation can do to your life. Simply stated, Sahaja releases the power of the sleeping Kundalini energy in you. When it starts to work on you, it goes without saying to stay calm and be in a state of meditation. What is more important is that this energy cleanses and energizes your vital functions that are performed by your chakras and nadis (energy channels). And you can feel the difference over time, although it might not be dramatic in the first few days.
The more developed and highly motivated people in this world tried very hard to master this form of meditation.
Today's average meditation offerings are for the masses. While what we offer is technical for everyone, it's especially for those who can see beyond the superficial things in life and are looking for something much stronger. And especially for those who are willing to make an effort and go any distance.
A recent case study by a highly motivated meditator from New Orleans explains this. He found Sahaja Online after becoming frustrated with most of the other solutions and explanations of what is beyond the mind. It was a treasure trove of information for him. He continued to learn and immerse himself in Sahaja and all of this through our online sessions and website. At some point we noticed his willingness to learn and flew to him to guide him to the advanced concepts. Every day he discovered something new was a profound event for him. These are the best people for whom the powerful forms of meditation are intended. The lesson from his story is that perseverance and determination to prevail until you begin to see the powerful benefits are the best way to practice something like sahaja meditation.
This meditation is not very popular or widely used and there is a reason for it. Sahaja is for the early adopters, the leaders, the open-minded, independent thinkers, and the experimenters. None of these properties represent the masses. It just doesn't appeal to everyone. This comes with a degree of difficulty, and the rewards for being persistent are really cute. And those who reach the end stages make the practice even richer and better by being part of the collective.
The Sahaja form and techniques are intricate and technically solid.
There are no other known forms of Kundalini Yoga or meditation that can really cause the Kundalini to break through the Sahasrara after passing through the central energy channel. Most other forms of Kundalini Yoga or meditation, even when successful, get stuck at the 6th chakra. There are no other forms of yoga or meditation that the Kundalini can exalt for a group of people together at the same time. Kundalini Yoga has always been an individual effort. Sahaja is a collective phenomenon. Sahaja is true yoga – the union of your inner self with the all-pervading power.
And yes, we know why pathogens and microorganisms like viruses and bacteria attack, how they invade and take over our spiritual subtle energy system. We will not promise a cure because we ourselves firmly believe in scientific study, science and medicine. What we offer is not considered a cure or treatment. However, if you go beyond the realm of science into the unexplored, powers must be discovered within you that may surprise you. We have our share of scientific studies showing the benefits of Sahaja, but we have a lot more to offer.
The benefits are unlimited and unique to you.
The big advantage is that Kundalini-based meditations have practically infinite potential to benefit every practitioner. This is one of those practices that need not be limited to use or application by a large population. With that in mind, we can't even be specific in trying to describe its benefits. Many of us have changed our lives, improved our health, resolved our financial problems, fixed our relationships, and most of us have changed our personalities. Sure, we all still have to work on something and improve. But the difference in the before and after versions of our lives is enormous. And that is exactly what should appeal to you. The world is looking for ways to make a big difference in their lives and combat the extraordinary circumstances.
Okay, I'm sold. What's the best way to make sahaja a part of my lifestyle?
- Make a start. Take part in our online sessions.
- Don't worry about the order of your study or too much about certain techniques, just record what you can. It will develop on its own if you persist for several weeks at a time.
- Focus more on the experience than on learning. You may not understand your spiritual acumen or make great progress if you try to master it by going beyond the mind.
- Don't make it an "independent" thing to do at home. This is what these meditation apps are for. Sahaja only works when you combine group sessions with individual hard work at home.
- Meditation at home twice a day and group meditation twice a week is a good plan to feel the benefits.
- Remember – it must feel a bit difficult, complex, and many spiritual concepts will sound a little new. If everything looks too simple and crystal clear, something is wrong and you are probably approaching Sahaja like the average meditation out there.
- We have many resources – videos of practitioners talking about their experiences, technique videos, and plenty of reading. Make the most of this time at home. Let Sahaja's adoption be the silver lining in your life amid the ongoing crisis.
