During the Sweet Surprise Satsang, I felt pure gratitude to be walking the path of the Siddhas. I relished the rare gift of having a living Guru in my life, and felt connected with the global Siddha Yoga community. My heart was full of love for God and for the Guru.

On hearing Gurumayi’s Message for 2018, the first thought that came to me was: “Go within and connect to your Heart. Recognize your inner Self.”
 
Thank you, Gurumayi ji!
 

a Siddha Yogi from Maharashtra, India

When I participated in A Sweet Surprise Satsang and heard Gurumayi give her Message for 2018—Satsang—I felt such a powerful sense of relief. I felt a new level of connection to the Guru as my own inner Self, a deeper sense of a natural ability to connect to the universal Guru principle.  

I feel forever grateful.

a Siddha Yogi from Massachusetts, USA

The first time I heard Gurumayi’s Message in A Sweet Surprise Satsang, we had some technical difficulties in our Siddha Yoga Meditation Center. We spent a good part of the time waiting for much of the Message to come through. But the wonderful part is that we would hear bits and pieces, and then we would be quiet and let it sink in. We would turn inside and contemplate what had just been said, until the next segment aired. I kept telling myself that we always get exactly what we need! 

In fact, we were graced to hear the Message in its entirety later on, and it was true—I had, indeed, received everything I needed. Since then, I have often paused to take in nature's beauty, instead of plowing through my day. I am also more aware of my breath.
I feel that I received such a beautiful gift from the Guru, and I am so grateful.

Thank you, Gurumayi, for this wonderful morning surprise!
 

a Siddha Yogi from Nagpur, India
 

Since participating in A Sweet Surprise Satsang 2018, I have noticed a connection to the sun that I have not experienced in the past. I've taken time to wake up early to watch the sun rise. I've made a point of being outside to observe the sun slipping back into the earth at night. The warmth of its rays and the awe I feel at the sun's beauty and magnitude remind me that the Guru's love, like the sun, is always present and waiting for me.
 

a Siddha Yogi from Missouri, USA

As we prepared to receive Gurumayi’s Message for 2018, my heart was open and joyful. When Gurumayi said the word satsang, images and feelings of what the Message means to me came flooding in: love, protection, and community.
 
Later, when I meditated, my mind became very quiet as I focused on the breath. I had the actual experience that "I am That"—I am the light of Consciousness, I am the light of the sun.
 

a Siddha Yogi from Minnesota, USA

A few days ago on my morning walk, I stopped to look up at the sun and feel its light upon my face. I felt a sweet sense of peace that stayed with me for some time.
 
I realize now that in those moments I was experiencing Gurumayi’s Message for 2018.
 
Thank you, Gurumayi!

When I heard Gurumayi give her Message for 2018, tears came to my eyes and my heart opened. I felt that Gurumayi was answering my deepest longing, my deepest prayers. 
 
A wave of gratitude passed through me as I thought of Gurumayi bestowing this enormous gift in response to my longing—and not just to me, but to anyone who sincerely desired it.
 
A vow arose within me to renew my efforts in sadhana, to make the effort to connect to Gurumayi’s grace, to reaffirm the direction in which my life is heading.

a Siddha Yogi from North Carolina, USA

When I heard Gurumayi's Message for 2018, something deep inside me unfolded and relaxed. And all through the rest of her talk, I continued to experience this relaxed unfolding. I felt I was having the Guru’s darshan
 
This must be what it's like to experience satsang in every moment. I keep coming back to this experience again and again.
 

 a Siddha Yogi from Sydney, Australia

Inspired by Gurumayi’s teachings in a previous Message Talk, I have been practicing self-acknowledgement for some time. When I heard Gurumayi’s Message for 2018, the word that arose in connection with my practice of self-acknowledgment was company.
 
Through this I feel I am being guided to go deeper into the practice of acknowledging my beneficial inner promptings—to expand those moments, and to recognize them as the actual company of the Truth, as the company of my own inner Self.
 

a Siddha Yogi from Rusell Lea, Australia

My first and ongoing response to Gurumayi's Message is excitement and enthusiasm. It feels so juicy, accessible, and full of promise—all at once!
 

a Siddha Yogi from Murrumbeena, Australia

Each part of A Sweet Surprise Satsang made an impact on me, and at one point I felt an amazing sense of deep relief. The realization arose that by practicing Gurumayi’s Message, I can make a difference—both to myself and others.
 
The Message inspired me to focus on the word faith in the coming year. My intention is to connect to genuine, loving faith in myself and then make a difference by sharing this virtue wholeheartedly in my interactions with others.

Remembering that I can be in the company of the Guru, the Truth, at all times helps me relax and enjoy the present moment. This connects me to my heart and my breath. I feel delight taking a seat in me.
 
I am so grateful for this experience. Thank you so much, Gurumayi!

Thank you, beloved Gurumayi, for showering me and this entire world with your guidance!
 

a Siddha Yogi from Starnberg, Germany

When I heard Gurumayi's Message, it reminded me of what my parents taught me from a young age—that I can enjoy my own company instead of feeling that I have to look outside myself to find contentment in the company of others. When I repeat the Message to myself, I remember this.
 
Thank you, Gurumayi, for bestowing this profound knowledge in such a doable way.
 

a Siddha Yogi from Ganeshpuri, India

On hearing Gurumayi’s Message, I experienced my heart opening like a flower blossoming. Later, I thought of the word expansion.

a Siddha Yogi from Ludlow, United Kingdom

My first impression when Shri Gurumayi gave her Message for 2018 was: I am never alone. My heart relaxed deeply with the sense of being loved by and giving my love to kindred spirits.
 
So, to put Gurumayi’s Message into practice, I have resolved to choose an action at the start of each new day. It might be a card, or an email to a friend, or acknowledging the cashier in the supermarket with a friendly greeting. It could also be a drawing, playing the harmonium, or walking to the amazing ocean beach. I feel that all of these actions are blessed by Gurumayi’s love.
 
A thousand thank yous to our beloved Guru.
 

a Siddha Yogi from Port Fairy, Australia

When I heard the Message for 2018, my heart filled with joy and I wanted to dance in happiness.  I love to be engaged in satsang all the time.

Thank you, my beloved Gurumayi, for this beautiful Message!
 

a Siddha Yogi from Johannesburg, South Africa

When I think of Gurumayi's Message for 2018, my heart ignites with love. I feel my connectedness with the Self, with others, with nature, with Gurumayi, with the universe. I am drawn to the golden blaze of the sun as an outer reminder of my blazing heart!
 

a Siddha Yogi from Maryland, USA

The day after participating in A Sweet Surprise Satsang 2018, two friends and I were able to view one of the masterpieces by the famous Italian painter Titian (Tiziano in Italian), titled “Sacred Conversation.” It was painted in 1520.
 
We were really surprised because we felt that this painting created a connection for us to Gurumayi's Message talk: the sacred figures are illuminated by the golden rays of the sun as it sets in the sea, and a saint points to them with his finger.
 
We are so full of love and gratitude for Gurumayi, who illuminates our lives.
 

a Siddha Yogi from Pavia, Italy

My first response to Gurumayi's Message for 2018 was a deep sense of relief and the words "Each moment a satsang, each thought a satsang."
 
For me, Gurumayi's Message is an invitation to recognize the Truth that shimmers in each moment and particle of my life, within and without. What joy to be in the ever-new company of my beloved Guru!
 
Thank you, Gurumayi ji, for this precious gift.
 

a Siddha Yogi from Mumbai, India

My first impression after hearing Gurumayi's Message for 2018 was joy! All through A Sweet Surprise Satsang I kept experiencing so much joy through Gurumayi's words, voice, laughter, and wisdom. Days later I am still able to experience that same joy, and I can close my eyes and see her smiling with so much joy that I can only smile back at her.
 

a Siddha Yogi from Heidelberg, Germany

The first word I heard within me when listening to Gurumayi's Message was openheartedness. As I contemplated openheartedness, it has come to mean being awake to the Truth in every moment—every encounter, every cloud, every breath I take. We are always in the company of the Truth.
 
Thank you, Gurumayi, for awakening me to this dimension of satsang.
 

a Siddha Yogi from New York, USA

Throughout A Sweet Surprise Satsang I felt very blessed and very loved. Gurumayi's words resonated very deeply with me and my life situation, and I am so grateful that I can immerse myself in the study of Gurumayi's Message all through the year. My heart felt completely fresh and purified during the satsang and in the following days.
 
It is my aim this year to recite Shri Guru Gita every morning to keep this connection with the Siddha Yoga Guru. It is also my great wish to immerse myself more deeply than ever in the Siddha Yoga teachings and to keep very firmly to my path. Through participating in this wonderful satsang, I feel that I am being helped immensely in achieving this goal.
 
Thank you so very much, Gurumayi, for your life-changing presence in my life.

Since receiving Gurumayi's Message on January 1, I have been repeating it to myself like a mantra. Through doing this, I've realized that the syllables of the word have a rhythm—a rhythm like a heartbeat. So I am experiencing Gurumayi's Message pulsating at the very core of my being.
 

a Siddha Yogi from Connecticut, USA

My first response to Gurumayi’s Message was the realization of how I've been enjoying its essence—working in my garden, photographing nature, meditating on the train surrounded by people whom I don't know, connecting at work with my students in small groups.
 
The Message gave me new appreciation for something that has been a central part of my life for years.

I feel that the Message carries the prospect of transformation in everything I do.

a Siddha Yogi from Minnesota, USA

When I heard the Message, my first impression was that it was vibrating within me. Following Gurumayi's guidance, I held this first impression within as a precious gift.
 
The next day, I revisited the experience in meditation. Immediately, it was as if my varying energies gathered joyfully in my heart. Then I saw these energy streams gathering around a sacred fire within me, with my meditation as the offering.
 
I decided to repeat the Message as much as I could during the day. The same image kept arising, and my actions, thoughts, and feelings became offerings.
 
Today I felt that all my actions were sacred.
 

a Siddha Yogi from Garges-lès-Gonesse, France

I am so grateful for this glorious A Sweet Surprise Satsang. During the audio stream a little field mouse appeared outside my window, close to a photo of Gurumayi on my desk.
 
At one point, directly corresponding with the guidance Gurumayi was giving, the very active mouse suddenly became very still. You could say that he or she had become as quiet as a mouse!
 
I felt that I was participating in the satsang with one of nature’s messengers. As we both were still, I imagined the inner voice of the mouse talking to me saying, “I know a secret,” and at that very moment the audio stream became a live video stream, and I saw Gurumayi!
 
I experienced perfect harmony and connectedness. Then, the mouse moved in an unusual way, as though, I thought, it was offering a pranam, and scurried away. I felt the mouse and I had both experienced darshan!

Thank you, Gurumayi! I am so grateful to receive your Message for 2018.
 

a Siddha Yogi from Dyssegaard, Denmark

Just as Gurumayi was giving her Message, I lost audio connection. I only heard the first syllable. I didn't know in that moment that I hadn't heard the complete message. I sat in silence savoring what I had heard and felt absolute connection with my Self. I needed nothing more. Just that syllable.
 
So, I can say that my first impression of receiving the message was silence and connection.
 
Still, it was a delight when the electronic connection was reestablished and my impression was confirmed upon hearing the complete Message!

I am profoundly touched that I have been given a direct experience of Gurumayi's Message.
 

a Siddha Yogi from Lausanne, Switzerland

a Siddha Yogi from Massachusetts, USA

The energy of Gurumayi’s Message for 2018 is pulsating and lighting up my world from within!

a Siddha Yogi from Maryland, USA

As I lay in bed this morning remembering Gurumayi’s Message for 2018 and thinking about the year and day ahead, I closed my eyes and began to practice a technique from the satsang.

a Siddha Yogi from St. Petersburg, Russian Federation

When I heard Gurumayi’s Message, my first impression was purification. I feel that satsang is like a river, which removes impurity and gives life and happiness to all living beings. In my understanding, the power of purification removes the feeling of differences and leads us towards God.
 
Happy New Year to all!

Toward the end of A Sweet Surprise, I saw the first rays of the morning sun rise above a nearby mountain. Soon the sun filled my room with bright light and shone directly on my face. The snow outside sparkled and glistened.

As the satsang ended, clouds obscured the sun. I felt silence and ease—the same feelings I experienced as soon as I heard Gurumayi’s Message.

I’m so grateful, Gurumayi, for the light you offer to this world.

Since viewing the “Celebrating Christmas with Gurumayi” video on the website, I have been contemplating how I experience the presence of God.
