First of all I want to say Thank you for this wonderful online program it is a blessing and I am grateful. I started the program 2 days ago and have been following the instructions and am looking forward to progressing through the class. To give a little background I have been practicing meditation and yoga for about year and a half. I’ve done mantra and passage meditation and some simple breathing exercises but felt it was time to follow one type of meditation yoga with instruction instead of going on my own and putting a patchwork type practice like I have been doing.
My question is and observation is that I went from doing about 35 minutes in the morning and 5 minutes at night practice to following the instructions in class 1 and am feeling very emotional during this transition time is there anything I can do to calm or normalize my emotions or is this something that time will help with? Watching or reading about Shri Mataji has been helping. smile

Hello Robert, and welcome to the course. I am glad you are enjoying it and it is good to hear about your approach – we actually recommend that folks put other meditation or yoga practices aside while starting out in Sahaja meditation – this makes it easier to see the kind of benefits you may be getting out of the course.

It is common and completely normal to feel emotional. As long as it is not too uncomfortable for you, I would suggest you just allow it to happen. Just be patient with yourself, and try to be a witness – to observe your emotions as if you are a bystander, rather than experiencing them directly. After some time, your emotions will become balanced.

In the meantime, please feel free to do anything that makes you feel better – as you say, watching or reading about Shri Mataji, or listening to soothing or uplifting music (see http://www.freemeditation.com/music/).

All the best, and please post again if you have any comments or questions.

Sarah
