As I meditated and focused on the outbreath, I felt warm, healing energy going to my arms, hands, and mouth. Since I participated in this meditation session, I have noticed that a certain harshness and unevenness in my breath have gone away, and I feel stronger both mentally and physically.
 
Thank you, Gurumayi, for these meditation sessions.

As I meditated, I focused on the outbreath. As thoughts arose, I felt that each exhalation was gently removing a veil covering my heart. In this way, I connected to the goodness of my heart. As I went deeper into meditation, I felt that my breath was polishing my heart.

Thank you, Gurumayi, for this beautiful experience of meditation.

The very title of the meditation session, "Recognizing Your Own Goodness," connected me to the good qualities of my own heart, and helped me to stay free of negative thoughts. In meditation too, the title supported me in clearing my mind and staying in the present moment.
 
Thank you so much, Gurumayi, for the way your teachings help me in my daily life.

As I followed my exhalation to a natural resting place, my body felt relaxed. When my next inhalation spontaneously arose, I felt this bliss, this easeful joy.  
 
I pranam in gratitude for having this experience revealed within me.

When I participated in Meditation Session V, "Recognizing Your Own Goodness," I kept experiencing the most wonderful connection with my breath. My breathing spontaneously became very subtle, and then I experienced deep stillness. It was very easeful and deeply moving. Even after returning home, I am still able to be in that space of stillness.
