Letter from Sonia: Sahajayoga Experience @ Burlington Class
April 10 2013
I am still fairly new to Sahajayoga, as I started coming at the end of January, but I can honestly say that this has already been a life altering experience for me.
Since following the path that lead me here I have had so many wonderful experiences, but the one I had last night was so beautiful and powerful.
Before arriving I was not feeling well, I have been suffering with horrible pain in my neck and shoulder for 5 days. I almost drove straight home from work, but felt compelled to go to class, as I have missed it so much when I was unable to attend in the past.
In the beginning the meditation went as normal, we began with the bandhan, and then did our affirmations. As we began to raise the Kundalini I felt goose bumps all over body rising with my hand. I had experienced this for the first time last week, but this was more intense, and felt much deeper, as though the goose bumps were in my very soul.
I began to notice that the space between my thoughts was widening, and soon there were no thoughts for me to forgive. At this time I became aware of Ioana’s voice reading the words of Sri Mataji. It was during this time that I began to feel a sensation of lightness. The cool breeze became all encompassing, as though it were lifting me up. Then suddenly there was a surge of energy, and I felt joy like I cannot explain, tears filled my eyes and I just remember feeling present. There were no thoughts; the words of Sri Mataji were there, although I am not sure if I was consciously listening. It was only after the words stopped and we began to come out of meditation and I became aware of my body that I realized I did not feel the sharp pain in my shoulder, nor the pain in my neck. Slowly the pain in the shoulder returned, but it has not been as intense as it was prior to my experience, and the pain in my neck has not returned at all a full day later.
After this experience we raised our hands above Sahasrara and I felt such a cold breeze and pressure pushing up onto my palm. As I felt the feeling of joy returned to me, I felt the joy of all the people present in the collective, and I felt more at peace than I can remember feeling in my life.
A day later and I am still feeling wonderful. I do not feel stress today, and I have been challenged with the same things that cause me frustration and stress on other days, but today I am in the present still and able to say “I am my own master”. When I am my own master no one and nothing has the power to change how I choose to feel. I choose to feel the joy and love I experienced last night, and I choose to have that live with me for the rest of my life.
Thank you Sri Mataji for helping me to find my own self-realization, I am on the path that I have been seeking my whole life, and I am excited to continue the journey.
