Hi

I am 39 year old in Kelowna Canada. I have suffered a low back injury and that has made some scar tissue on my spine from either a spinal tap or epidural flare up.  (Spinal teathering) I have sever nerve pain down both arms, legs to feet and sharp pain in back. I have loss of feeling to my right toes and both calf muscles are weak. Sahaja yoga came to me when I was ready. My life is completely turned upside down and as I step out of  my comfort zone and do things that I like more doors started to open and here I am….So thankful….I am struggling with “knowing” my body when I am having  a great deal of nerve pain…the pain and heat come and go…I m open to any suggestions

Welcome!

Did you get introduced to Sahaja yoga through the weekly meeting in Kelowna, or just through the website?

One thing that could help a lot, both for progressing faster with meditation, and possibly also for improving your physical state would be to combine your regular meditation with a footsoak. 

Here is one of the ways to do it: http://www.onlinemeditation.org/meditation-forum/meditation-techniques/foot-soaking-1/

Most of us, who have decided that sahaja yoga is working for us and that we want to do it seriously, do a footsoak every day, usually in the evening. Sometimes I do it twice a day. 

Try it, and see whether it helps. As you go further and establish the meditative state, there could also be other things that could help, but there is no point overdoing the “techniques” without actually being in meditation at least to some degree. Footsoak is great that way, because you don’t actually have to “do” anything, you just sit with the feet in the water, but at the same time it clear away a lot of thoughts, so it is much easier to meditate right after the footsoak.

Please keep in touch and let us know how things are going,

Best,

Mar’yana
