Hi I’m Mala and a newbie to meditation and this site. I’m a mother of two boys, the elder one with severe allergies and just diagnosed with ADHD. I’m struggling to cope with him and decided that I have to change! I was born and raised in a Hindu home but lately have been questioning to existence of GOD. I feel that I’m losing my mind because of the many challenges that I’m facing. I’ve read many of the post and would love to have those experiences also.

Hello Mala,

A warm welcome!

We hope the videos and guided meditations on this website will support you in this very challenging journey of yours and that you will find the peace and gravity within you again. If you find that you need additional support, we would highly recommend you to search for and attend the free classes in your area.

In case you are interested and haven’t yet come across these, below are some links to information on Sahaja Meditation’s proven benefits with managing ADHD:
http://www.freemeditation.com/…..aging-add/
http://www.freemeditation.com/…..with-adhd/
http://www.freemeditation.com/…..8/adhd.pdf

Footsoaking would help your son tremendously with his allergies. Shri Mataji also recommends the mother of the child suffering from allergies to cleanse the left side of the Nabhi chakra with the candle treatment. Again, if you need additional support please let us know or visit a class near you.

All our support,
Joanne

Hi Joanne,

Thank you so much for taking time out to replying to me thread. I would love to know how to go about doing a footsoaking and if you can direct me to a book/literature for the Nabhi Chakra.

Thanks again
Mala

Hi Joanne,

I’m truly enjoying the meditations the heart music is my favorite!!!! I’ve been doing the meditation a couple of weeks now and I’ve also tried the footbath, the bandhan and the candle. I was having pulsing sensations on my left hand and now I’m getting them on both, but no cool breeze cry I know patience is the key, but was wondering if sensations on both hands meant that something else needed fixing! I’m so excited about the yoga that I’ve telling like minded people about my experience and then “poof” I feel like the feelings are fading…. I will continue to plod!

Dear Mala,
you have just started recently, and the busy mom that you are, it is quite normal to take a bit longer to start feeling the cool breeze. It’s good that you are feeling both hands now, that means the energy is also working in the right channel now.
I would suggest to continue with the course, and instead of thinking too much about what you are feeling in the hands, try to see whether you are reaching the thoughtless state, and whether you are actually enjoying what you are doing. Try to have a regular meditation morning and evening if possible, and if you could do a footsoak once a day, that should make a big difference in a week or two…
Let’s see how things go, looking forward to hearing from you,
Mar’yana

Hello everyone this is eboni and I’m a newbee to meditation. I’m a mother of 3 adult children, 5 grandchildren. I’m also a student at a local college and the sole caregiver of my 81 year old mom.

Hello Eboni,
Welcome, and thanks for sharing. It does indeed sound like you’re a busy lady! I hope the meditation can help you manage your responsibilities and help keep you stress free :)
The breathing exercises can help us to relax, which can lead the way to a more peaceful meditation, but are not essential for meditating. You may find other things helpful to relax yourself first, then the meditation may come more easily. Try for example, sitting outside and looking at nature (flowers, or trees or the sky). Another suggestion that might help: when you are meditating, let go completely of any thoughts you might be having about things you have to do. Because of your studies, along with your family responsibilities, you may feel your are constantly bombarded by thoughts about your “to do” list…later today, or tomorrow or next week. Try to make a rule for yourself that when you sit for meditation, and it may be just for 5 minutes, don’t allow yourself to think of anything else you have to do.
Hope this helps…let us know how it goes!

Sarah
