Chandra: I never saw such a big rainbow in Niagara! It was such a beautiful view to see it stretching across the width of the falls, so that it touched the ground on Canadian side as well as on the US side. I never saw a rainbow touching the Mother Earth.
Anjali : On Wednesday October 13th, seven of us set out to pay homage to the sacred Niagara falls – swayambhu of Shri Vishnumaya (the subtle energy that governs the left aspect of the Vishuddhi energy center of the Mother Earth). Personally, for me it was an experience of a lifetime. As soon as we drove into Niagara Falls, I started to feel vibrations which woke up the snoozing Yoann too. We were already getting so excited by just the thought of being close to the falls. The weather was beautiful and we started to walk around and admire the beauty of the falls – absolutely breathtaking. And then our little Abi came up with the idea of taking a ride in the “Maid of the Mist” so that we can allow Shri Vishnumaya to drench us with her love and her holy vibrations.
Isabelle: At Niagara Falls we got a chance to experience and observe the falls at different angles. First we walked along the walkway then we took the ferry and finally we went down the tunnel and stood near the base of the falls. While observing the falls it became more beautiful. The more you appreciated it the more it showed itself. In the tunnel looking at the falls at first I saw just water, than I observed that the water was pouring down and up, it was twirling, sometimes splashing us, playing. I always knew that Native Indians respected Mother Earth however they were so much wiser than what I learned. They knew the power of this place and venerated this sacred place. It was such a beautiful day.The Falls were beautiful but so was the company. We went to the Falls because of Yoann and his joy was so contagious. So happy that I went with you all!!!!
Chandra: My experience of Niagara Falls trip? Yes, my mind, normally tense, was very relaxed all through our tour. We walked around like a bunch of free birds. I fell asleep on open lawn in the midst of traffic! I learned that a Sahaja Yogi can be in meditation anywhere, any time as Yoann was all through our trips to Webster Falls and Niagara Falls. These tours (and a short Oakville water front tour Yoann, Omar, Isabelle and me took after C.J. Cafe program) invoked the collective awareness in me as against ” I am in my own world” attitude. Yoann, as a living example, further showed me the Power of Innocence, the Power Shri Mataji often talked about while referring to Shri Ganesha Principle of the eternal child within us, the subtle ruler power governing the Root Chakra: Mooladhara. I also thought that our Halton sahaj family should schedule regular meditation trips to Niagara falls as we are uniquely blessed to be so close to that Divine creation, be it in summer, in fall, winter or in spring.
Chandra: Oh ya, I forgot The Rainbow!! It was a Garland thrown across Yoann’s neck (while he was in meditation behind the Falls) by the Divine Mother for his work in Canada.
Anjali: Once the boat started to approach the falls, Yoann pointed out a little rainbow and we were already bursting with joy.. some of us started to chant the mantra for Shri Vishnumaya while some of us just opened our palms and our hearts and let the love flow on us in form of heavy mist – some of us also got a nice foot soak out of the ride! Yoann was glowing, totally charmed by the experience -so much that he didn’t want to leave the boat and finally the boat staff came and kicked us out of it. 🙂
I mean Shri Vishnumaya talked to us that day!
I’m still in an awe!
