- Self Realization & Affirmations -

Self Realization

The process of awakening the Kundalini is called Self-Realization. We can connect with our spirit and achieve meditation when the mothering, spiritual energy known as Kundalini becomes awake and active. When this energy is flowing within us, it provides an expression for the Spirit.

The dormant Kundalini energy rises from the sacrum through the spinal column. As a result, the energy centers or chakras become energized or nourished. When this energy passes through the brain we spontaneously achieve meditation.

Affirmations

Sit comfortably in front of Shri Mataji’s picture, with your left hand palm upwards on your lap. Use the right hand as indicated on the left side of your body to support the movement of the Kundalini upwards. You can use the affirmations silently, repeating them ‘inside’ without speaking them ‘outside’.

Please use these affirmations with all your confidence and your pure desire to become the Spirit. Shri Mataji explains: “It is everyone's right to achieve this state of ones evolution and everything ecessary is already inbuilt. But as I respect your freedom, you have to have the desire to achieve this state, it cannot be forced upon you!”

Take time to see if you feel...

  • A cool breeze in the palm of your hands?
  • Sensations or vibrations in your body, hands or feet?
  • Heat or tingling?
  • A cool breeze from the top of your head?
  • Are you simply relaxed and peaceful?
  • Are you aware (alert) but thoughtless?

These are some of the experiences people have when they receive their Self-Realization.

Experiment with the following...

  • Try to look at Shri Mataji's photograph without thinking. You can do it.
  • Next check to see if there is a cool or hot breeze coming from the top of your head. Try for a few moments with your right hand. Then with your left hand and then back again with your right. (Sometimes it takes a little time to feel because our Kundalini is working out things on our subtle systems)
  • If you feel heat: just say again in your heart "I forgive everyone in general" and don't think of those people you need to forgive. Just forget about them.
  • If you feel quiet inside: close your eyes and put your attention on the top of your head (slightly towards the front) and enjoy yourself.

Congratulations! We hope it was a blissful and peaceful experience. We suggest that  you rest now and embark tomorrow on a profound inner journey.
