I recently attended my first Sahaja Yoga Meditation class just this week and have been meditating morning and night ever since. I’ve now found this wonderful site and have started the lessons. It’s just what I need right now. :)

I had a bad year last year and was still suffering with insomnia and a frazzled nervous system. My insomnia has gone already! smile

Something I would like to ask:

I have fibroids (growths in my uterus) they are putting pressure on my bladder and bowels – so am getting related symptoms as you can guess.  If they grow too big I would have to have a hysterectomy. This worries me.  

I obviously have a block in my swadisthan chakra. Any tips on how I can heal this?


Thank you very much.

Welcome, Anna!

Nice to see that you are already experiencing some positive changes after such a short time. I have contacted two doctors who are also doing this meditation and I asked them, what they would suggest for you. Both of them said the same thing, keep meditating regularly, and start doing a footsoak once a day, and see how it goes. Here is one of the ways to do the footsoak:

It’s best if you can do the footsoak in the evening, before going to sleep, though, if that does not work for you, do it any other time when you have meditation. It is a very simple but very powerful technique, and it is especially useful for clearing out the bottom three chakras as well as the 6th chakra, so it also improves the quality of sleep if done in the evening.

If you want, you can combine it with the guided audio meditations of this online course, or even with watching a class video. (Then, obviously, you would keep the eyes open the whole time, which might be a good idea during footsoak anyway.)

I usually do it in the evenings, I do a footsoak for 10-15 minutes, then discard the water in the toilet, wash my hands and sit down to meditate a little more. You might notice, that meditation after the footsoak is much better than before or during footsoak. I sometimes also do another one in the morning if I have time, especially if I did not sleep too well, or if my days are too busy and there is too much going on and cluttering my attention, or if I feel I need it. 

Hope this helps :).

Please stay in touch! It’s great if you can benefit from the online course and this way get some support for your meditation at home during the week, but it is also very important to attend the weekly local sahaja yoga class if you can – it really makes a big difference.

Wishing you all the best, and hope to hear from you again! :)
