This Is How Meditation Has Helped Me Throughout My Life
kundalini yoga meditation

I am a 76-year-old grandmother and have been practising Sahaja Yoga for 34 years.  A young boy from Chennai said, “Aunty, whoever talks about you says you are very strong”.  “Yes, I am strong, but not like a wrestler”. I am mentally and spiritually strong, and that is because of my honest and sincere practice of Sahaja Yoga.  It has taught me everything. How to be good and strong, how to keep healthy, and how to be a person whom everybody wants to meet and know.

From the day I joined I have followed all the teachings of Sahaja Yoga very obediently, without any doubts or questions.  We are not asked to do difficult things like fasting, giving up family, being very sober and not going for parties or movies.  BUT we must live a moral life and avoid all things that are wrong and sinful. How will we know?

The day you get realisation, the Divine Energy of the Kundalini starts spreading into all the cells of the body and starts cleaning us from inside.  

All this dirt must be removed, so we are taught to sit with our feet in a bucket of salt water. The water element takes it all out.

We are also taught to sit in meditation early in the morning, because between 4:30 and 6:00 am is Brahma Muhurtham, when the divine rays are very strong, and the flowers open, and birds sing.  This is my daily routine. Sometimes I may feel pinpricks on my fingers and palms. They told me in the Centre that these are signs that there is some disturbance in a Chakra. Every chakra has a nerve ending on a fingertip, and according to the finger, we can know which chakra is in trouble.

I even learnt that on every chakra a reflection of God has a seat, and every chakra has qualities that we have to follow.  Like the chakra at the neck is the place of Shri Krishna, and the qualities there are to speak sweetly to everyone. If I have been rude and bossy, and hurt anyone’s feelings, this chakra will get disturbed and I will feel it on a finger.

Not only this, but we also learn how to repair any damage that we may do by our bad behaviour, or by harming others.  So, we are always alerting to find out our mistakes and correct ourselves.

So regular practice of Sahaja Yoga makes me a better person.  

I do not get angry, so I do not get blood pressure or tension headaches.  I am always happy with what I have, so I don’t try to do cheating and fraud to gather money or property.  I do not speak rudely to anyone in my house – my husband, my children, my grandchildren, or the people who come and help us in the house.

I am not strict about what time I eat, what time I sleep, or any other requirement.  But I am regular with my meditation, my foot soaking, and attending the collective programs in the Centre. I learnt how to balance myself!

Kundalini Yoga and Meditation
Invincible Living: The Power of Yoga, The Energy of Breath, and Other Tools for a Radiant Life - Guru Jagat

This is my first experience with Kundalini Yoga and Meditation. Kundalini Yoga is designed to raise complete body awareness.  There’s a lot of attention on the spine, the navel and breathing.  There’s no need to get into complicated positions and most of the exercises are fairly quick.  The meditations are mostly breathing with silent mantras.  Even practicing just a few minutes a day is said to bring you much benefit.


I did receive benefit from one I tried. When I was reading this book, we were having a particularly warm October and while it was cooling off at night, the house was still quite warm at bedtime.  To cool the body, breathe only through the left nostril, which will help you sleep.  I did feel cooler breathing that way.  There’s another one I want to try for sleep but I was just too tired to remember all the steps and the mantra.  It just doesn’t work well with the light on reading the instructions from the e-reader!  And it said you should sit with your spine straight and to continue until you fall asleep.  I’m pretty sure I won’t be able to fall asleep sitting up and when I fall over onto the bed, I’m pretty sure that will wake me up!


I’ve been doing the Cat-Cow Pose that they recommend because I know how important it is to keep the spine flexible. I’ve always heard that yoga moves should be done slowly but this one says that the more quickly you move, the more anti-aging benefits you receive.  I can’t say that I enjoyed doing this quickly.  Maybe it’s something that you need to get used to doing.


The book does seem to be geared to people who have a bit more yoga experience than I do, though it’s advertised for anyone at any age. It mentions several times “vibrating the mantra at the brow point” with no explanation as to what that meant.  I looked it up online and apparently repeating mantras creates an energy vibration.  One pose said “inhale, pull root lock, exhale and relax”.  It completely lost me there.


If you do try this book, I would recommend the print edition as it’s not easy going back and forth in an e-reader looking up the different yoga and meditations that you want to try. I also couldn’t read the photos with writing.


There’s quite a bit in here that has intrigued me so I’ll be dipping into this book again and try to work through some of my confusion with the instructions. I think it’s the type of book that you learn more from over time.


This book was given to me by the publisher through Edelweiss in return for an honest review.
