I’m grateful to Gurumayi for this meditation series. Each time, just as I was yearning for spiritual nourishment, the next session brought exactly what my soul longed for and what my sadhana called for. When I hungered for a way to refocus and rejuvenate my meditation practice, the perfect instructions came. As I longed for healing in my body, a dharana brought healing energy.
 
How can this be so perfectly orchestrated with my own sadhana? Through Guru’s grace! I feel my sadhana is spiraling upwards to its next evolution. It is pure delight to be learning this way in my own good company and with the global sangam. Satsang!

Yesterday, while meditating with Meditation Session II, I asked myself, “Who am I?” To my surprise the image of Lord Shiva came to me, and with a very gentle movement, he took a seat within me. I felt loved, and I was filled with a sensation of gentleness and lightness.
 
This morning, just before awakening, Lord Shiva came again to visit me. He was beautiful, soft, sweet, and gentle—simply being there near me.
 
I know this is a precious gift, and I am contemplating what I can do to conserve it, to remember that he is with me all the time.
 
I am so grateful for these Meditation Sessions that help me so much every day.

Each time I practice meditation as we did in this session, I find myself going very deep and am reluctant to open my eyes when it ends.
 
I’m very grateful for this experience.

During this second meditation session, I experienced my heart expanding. It felt soft and light.

I realized that this state is my own natural state, and that to experience it, I need to let go of all my worries about not being able to experience my own Self. I need to let go of trying so hard and just connect to what is already there. I need to be confident in the Self, which abides in my own heart.  

This was the greatest understanding for me. I'm so grateful.

It was a  wonderful experience to honor the radiant sun of Truth with the dharana in this meditation session. Today I listened to this dharana several times, immersing myself in the light within. As I breathed in deeply, the golden sun expanded and intensified, and as I breathed out long and slow, the rays of the sun poured out their golden blessings on the world.

I found the joyful, loving tone of the teacher in this session to be intensely welcoming. The stretches and the pranayama relaxed and strengthened my body and the dharana focused my mind. In meditation, I felt a glow emanating from my own inner Self and radiating throughout and beyond my body. I haven't felt this warm and soft and happy in days.

What a sublime meditation session this was! During the dharana, I experienced recognition and a leap of joy. I understood that I had experienced the very nature of the Self—sat, chit, ananda—and I knew that I am that Self.
 
Thank you, Gurumayi.

During the meditation session, I felt enveloped in peace and grace. My meditation was deeper than usual. As I was experiencing great harmony and a state of unity between my body and my mind, I felt renewed and alert. My mind remained without thoughts for a long time.
 
After the session, I perceived that this state of equipoise, peace, and well-being was long-lasting. This meditation session has subtly transformed something within me: I feel connected to and permeated by the Truth.  

Merci infiniment, Gurumayi.

For me, this meditation session was practical and subtle at the same time.

The stretches before the meditation were a sweet reminder of the importance of preparing my body for meditation. They also refreshed my awareness that I need to be kind to my body.

The dharana led me to glide into a radiant core within my heart, a warm and blissful inner space where I remained for a while, breathing in and out, relishing the pulsation of my inner Self, and enjoying my own good company.

I am very grateful for this gem of a meditation session, whose lessons I intend to apply to my daily life. Now, before engaging in any conversation, I intend to breathe, connect with the inner sun, and allow every word and every silence to arise from my heart.
