Hi, My name is Lisa and I have just joined online meditation and so far have found it very informative for my own meditations. I have been doing yoga for over ten years but I have never really meditated as I found it difficult but now Ihave found this site I am begining to combat meditation. I have also been opened to the world of Reiki and it has opened a new world for me, and I felt the need to find my inner peace and meditation has help me do that. I have a concern with my third eye chakra it always seems to ache and find it difficult to mentally close it, I could do with some advise please.

I have also tried the meditation of awakening Kundalini by following the video. I felt a little sad when I finished as I did not feel cool air when I put my left hand over my head but I felt cool air with my right hand, it made me feel unbalanced! Some positive feedback would be appreciated.

Lisa x

Hello Lisa,

Welcome to the forum and thanks for introducing yourself to us.  It is wonderful you have found us.

Class 7 of the online course is dedicated to the Agnya Chakra (at the level of the forehead).  It may take a bit of patience right now, but when you get to class 7, you will find out more about this chakra and how to balance it.

We have all lived our lives not knowing how to balance our energies and we all have our individual tendencies to be either more on the left side (of emotions, the past) or the right side (of the mind, the future).  Therefore please don’t feel alone in this.  We are all on the journey to establish our inner balance and Kundalini awakening.  It is a gradual process like the blossoming of a flower.  Please do browse this forum at your leisure, to read about why some of us have difficulties feeling the cool breeze, why we put our hand above the head, etc.

Lastly, here is a post on Reiki which you may find informative: http://www.onlinemeditation.or…..ach-other/

Hi Joanne,

Thank you for your reply and will look at the link.

I am going through the classes and finding them very helpful in my meditations.

Can you please explain a few things to me as I’m a little confused of how to follow the guided meditations!

Class three explains to you how to awaken the Kundalini which is very easy to understand. There after the classes focus on individual Chakras. So my confusion is, if i were to do this meditation every evening which is what I would like to do! Do I follow each class as it is stated!

Do I wake the Kundalini in every meditation or just once? And  then do I follow the guided classes to the other Chakras?

I hope you understand what I’m trying to say, I do want to do this right and follow this type of meditation every evening as I find it so helpful in understanding myself and becoming one at peace

With happiness Lisa :)

Hi Lisa,

You have asked a good question: do we need to “awaken” the Mother Kundalini by following the affirmation exercise, every time we sit down to do meditation?

The straightforward answer is no; however, that is only if you are closely following the online course.  For instance, if you stop meditating for some time, then your Mother Kundalini will go back to her dormant state coiled at the base of the spine, and you will need to do the affirmation exercise to sort of “get the process started” again.

As long as you are closely following the online course, it is not necessary to repeat the affirmation exercise each time at the beginning of your meditation.  However, if you do find that beginning your meditation with the affirmation exercise helps you to enter into thoughtless awareness, then do follow your own intuition.

In summary, there are no hard and fast rules as to how Sahaja Meditation is done.  The key is our desire for Self Realization.  Every person is their own guide/master within and it is important to feel what helps you with your meditation and follow your own feelings.

Hope that helps! smile
