Meditation and Health
One of the most interesting aspects of Sahaja Yoga Meditation is the improvement of our health in a spontaneous way. After the first meditation you can experience a general sense of relaxation and a reduction of your thinking activity; this is because this meditation has a direct effect on our autonomous nervous system, by helping it to get into balance.
If you repeat this meditation for a period of time, then this state of peace of mind starts settling and thanks to the process of balance you will experience a general improvement. Actually, at the root of our physical and emotional problems there is often an energetic imbalance; as we bring back our energetic system to balance also the other systems (physical and emotional) can return to balance. The time that is needed for improvement depends on the state you are when you start this practice and the constancy of your practice.
In Sahaja Yoga classes, you are given all the knowledge for your self-healing; as you come to know everything about your energetic system and your energetic centres (chakras in sanskrit) and as you are able to detect the state of them at any moment, you will be able to correct yourself and become your own master.
This happens in a natural way, because all the energetic centres are reflected on your hands (and other parts of you body as well) and after you experience your Self-Realisation you will be able to concretely feel the state of your chakras on your finger tips. When you know that they are not in good state, you will immediately know what to do to correct them and bring them to balance.
Many researches have been led with the purpose to try and show the beneficial effects of Sahaja Yoga meditation on health; here we report an interesting testimonial of Dr Ramesh Manocha, a practising medico and researcher at the School of Women’s and Children’s Health, University of New South Wales (UNSW), Sydney, Australia.
