As I prepared for meditation in Session III: Establish a Steady Practice, I envisioned my mind as a boat that I was bringing into its home mooring. Each step of preparation served to secure my mind so that it wouldn't be buffeted about by the sometimes stormy winds of mental activity. Entering into meditation flowed so naturally from this process.
 
Even though waves and currents of thought arose as the session continued, when they did, I visualized my breath as a rope that kept my mind gently tethered to its safe berth of meditation.
 
A wonderful experience of Gurumayi's Message for 2015!

Yesterday, while connected with the global sangham through the live stream meditation session, I had one of my most powerful experiences of meditation. My whole body was pulsing and swaying very strongly to the right and left—and the true beauty was that I could strongly feel I was one with the universe and everyone.
 
I don’t have the words to describe what I experienced. After the meditation, it took me a while to come back as I was floating. Oh, what a wonderful, unforgettable feeling!
 
Thank you, Gurumayi.

These monthly meditation sessions have become the highlight and the home base of my month. They lead me back to such a fully peaceful, rejuvenating, and forgiving space, where I just love to be.

Already, I can’t wait for the next one. Okay then, I won’t wait. I’ll dive back in tomorrow! I’ll schedule my own session, live-streaming from my puja and inside—a daily Siddha Yoga meditation session!

Oh, my goodness! I am feeling so lucky that I am getting this type of guidance for my sadhana. During the meditation session, I had so many thoughts. Yet, I was not caught up in them and continued to observe my breathing. This meditation felt like a big cleansing for me, and I experienced such stillness. Even now, as I write this, although I spoke with many people following the session, the mantra is still going on and there is deep silence in my being.

Thank you, Gurumayi. Thank you, Swami Indirananda ji. Thank you to all the sevites who made this satsang available to the global Siddha Yoga sangham. It was a great feeling to meditate together.

Because I have been meditating for several years now, when I read the title of this session, I wondered if I would gain much by participating in it. However, I’ve so enjoyed the meditations in the previous two sessions that I registered for this one. And I’m glad that I did!

As I listened to Swami Indirananda speak, I recognized that, without my noticing it, I have gradually allowed more and more distractions, concerns, and my own carelessness to crowd the space I used to reserve for simply letting go of everything else and releasing into meditation.

Thank you, Swami ji, for the simple steps and suggestions you gave us today. I already see ways that I can easily make more space in my schedule, in my body, and especially in my mind to renew the vibrancy of my meditation practice. I’m so looking forward to taking those steps.
