So ive just recently and i mean very recently have been introduced to meditation on a different aspect. Ive always just thought of yoga as some intense stretching i dont want to have any part of. However after reading alot and watching some documentaries online ive been very interested. I just started Sahaja meditation this week. Ive never done anything else. I really enjoy it though, and can actually feel myself getting closer and closer to total thoughtlessness. I always seem close to it and then a thought comes in saying “O snap luffy i think you got it!!” and then im at square 1 again lol. This morning though i decided to go for 20 min instead of the usual 15 but my back started hurting a bit. Is it because of anything i can change? or just because im not used to standing proper all the time? Least thats what i figured anyway. Was hoping it would gradually go away with more and more meditation. Also i was curious to how important is the foot soaking before meditating? i dont like to do it, because i like to walk a good distance away to a nice place i found for meditating. So would seem useless to soak my feet then go walk a mile in the forest. I have been wanting to start solar gazing at the same time, however with my luck we went from vastly sunny days to cloudy all week, specially in the morning, when i really want to do it. Im usually a bit busy around sunset time. If anyone here does solar gazing do you know if its ok if for the first hour in the morning its cloudy and then the sun comes out is it ok to begin? or if you dont have the sun out in the first hour its supposed to be, you cant do it? Sorry for the random questions too, just curious about this stuff lol.laugh

Hello, welcome to our course. smile
It is normal to experience some back pain sometimes, when we are just getting used to sitting in the cross legged position. It could also be that you have started to feel your chakras on your body. The pain would mean the Kundalini encountered a blockage in that chakra and is trying to clear it out.
Yes footsoaking is very important, as it helps to draw out negative vibrations especially in our lower chakras, and help us to establish the state of meditation more easily. You can do it anytime during the day if it doesn’t work out for you to do it right before you go for your walk. Alternatively, if where you are going in the nature there is a stream, lake or even the ocean, it is best to do your footsoaking there in the nature.
In Sahaja Yoga we don’t practise sun gazing so we would not be able to give you any suggestions on it. But we do hope you will take good care of your eyes while doing it!
