Remembering, Breathing, Enliving...

Remembering, Breathing, Enliving...

For me, one of the most notable benefits of this series of Gurumayi’s teachings is that my relationship to my own sadhana has shifted. I feel these teachings are giving me greater confidence, as well as an increased vocabulary for understanding, describing, and experiencing my own “inner landscape.” Most of all, these teachings have encouraged me to approach my sadhana with a playful spirit of adventure, which I cherish.

After reading “Remembering, Breathing, Enlivening…,” I felt inspired to experiment with humming three different kinds of songs to see their inner effect. One was a tune my mother used to hum as I fell asleep as a child; one was a tune I composed that I like to sing while reflecting on Gurumayi’s Message for 2024, and the third was Om. As I did this, I experienced states of relaxation and tenderness, rippling bliss and profound meditative stillness, and a cessation of all thought, respectively and in that order. What a revelation! I felt these were the opening notes of a great resounding inner aria that I can now continue to sing (and hum).

A few months ago, I was experiencing back discomfort, which made it difficult for me to find a comfortable position for sleeping. On one such night, I was feeling hopeless and fearful, when I suddenly heard Gurumayi’s words from her Message for 2024, “Stand tall in your dignity.” At that moment, I received the inspiration to hum. I began to do so, very faintly at first, but then louder as my breathing deepened. After a while, I felt my fear starting to be dispelled and my confidence beginning to grow. As I hummed, I felt the sound vibration enter all of my chakras and every part of my body, and a great sense of peace came over me. Spontaneously, I entered meditation, where I saw a blue inner light. In this state it was as if I could feel the vibration of the humming moving my vertebrae and loosening my muscles. I was soon able to carefully change the position of my body. After that experience, I hummed every night until I was able to fall asleep easily. My body has since continued the healing process.
