The waves I rode to reach my sacred bridge

By Deloshni Govender

“A guru is not a crutch; he is a bridge.”

A guru is not someone who comes to offer support, He is the golden bridge which transports you from a state of unconsciousness to sublime consciousness.

Jai Brahmarishi Mohanji!

I offer, at the lotus feet of my beloved Guru Mohanji, the experience of my very first encounter with Brahmarishi Mohanji and the Divine grace which entered my life.

Mohanji - Deloshni Govender

I have always been a “spiritual” seeker and have always been intrigued by Masters/Gurus but never had any urge to find one. I was in a very deep state of depression after I was forced to accept a job 600km away from my family owing to financial constraints. I had a lot of anger and stored emotions within me and truly felt that life owed me more than I was given.

In October 2013, my husband called to tell me that there was a “Guru” speaking at the Ganesha Chathurthi puja in Durban. I was uninterested. My husband was fortunate enough to meet the said Guru and told me that he was indeed a great man and I should meet him when he came to Gauteng. Again uninterested. The veil of negative fog surrounding me was indeed thick. My husband gave me the contact number of the person running the Guru’s programme and I called a few times with no success so I felt that this was really a sign that this was not for me.

A few weeks later, when I went home, my husband joyfully presented me with the book “The Power of Purity”. I accepted it with thoughts of it being “yet another book by yet another Guru!”. I opened the book and found the words “To Deloshni, With Love, M”. As I type this, waves of energy are pulsing through my body as I feel the sanctity of that moment. But at that time, I didn’t realise the grace which was being delivered. I was only later to understand the impact of what had happened. Mohanji had blessed my husband and GIFTED the book to him but autographed the book to ME!

I wasn’t fortunate to meet Mohanji during his visit to SA and the book lay in my flat for a few weeks unopened due to my depression and general disinterest in life. One afternoon, out of boredom I opened the book and started reading it. The words started stirring something within me. The crystal clear clarity of the messages was astounding! I was finally beginning to understand this existence! The meditation which came with the book was even more mind blowing and took me to an inner space of deep peace. I found myself more relaxed and accepting of myself and the life I have chosen. The book became my permanent companion. I never went anywhere without it. I would even have colleagues at work approach me and request me to open any page to see what lesson we could learn that day.

A few weeks later I met Mohanji for the first time but it was not a physical meeting. I now understand that we had an astral meeting. I had a very vivid “dream”. I awoke feeling every sensation like it had actually happened. I dreamed that I was in a battle of sorts with Mohanji and His followers. I dreamed that each time Mohanji would come close to me, I would run and my “friends” would help me escape. This was the type of experience which went on all night long but at the end of the dream I found myself alone. Mohanji was also finally alone. He was dressed in white and walking towards me, towering over me. I began running backwards in fear unable to take my eyes off Him. As He advanced, I slipped and fell onto my back and shouted “Bhagawan Shree Sathya Sai Baba ki Jai!!!” (Hail to the Divine Lord Sathya Sai Baba) and then “Om Shakthi, Parashakthi” (Divine Feminine energy). Mohanji reached out to me. He was just pure light. He picked me up, embraced me and called me affectionate names while holding me. He said to me “Why are you running from me? You are an enlightened being” and he continued to console and comfort me. He then took me to a room with a table in it and we both sat at the table and like a teacher he began teaching me. Up to this day, I have no idea what he taught me that night.

After the dream, I was in a daze for a few days and didn’t know what to think of it all. I researched this Guru online and tried to see how best I could contact Him. I did not know that He was on Facebook but I did find His profile on Speaking Tree. I sent Him a message about my encounter and to my utter delight I received the following message a few days later, “Dear Deloshni, I forwarded your message to Him, as Mohanji does not check this profile directly. He read your message and told you He is always with you and you are protected, there is nothing to worry about. Love Biljana Vozarevic, Mohanji Foundation.” My life changed drastically within those months. I was blessed to meet Mohanji in His physical aspect in December that year and He gave me Shaktipat at Arunachala. The growth, peace and love which I have since been graced with is evident in the smile I have on my face these days.

mohanji-giving-shaktipat-to-delo

My Guru came to me as destined and at the time it was destined. As I now realise, the meeting with the Guru need not be a physical encounter. I rode many waves of despair, fatigue and anguish in life but I will ride them all over again if they take me to His feet. He appeared and provided a bridge for me between unconsciousness and sublime consciousness. I have never in my life felt this connected to the Divine despite the many rituals and japa I used to do. My Baba (Mohanji) bridged the gap and allowed me to constantly feel divine love. Even though gratitude is just a word, only my heart knows what I truly wish to express as gratitude. Love you always and over all lifetimes, Baba.

Jai Brahmarishi Mohanji Jai!!!!

Experience sharing from Yohan, UK:

“After being inspired by yesterday’s Satsang, waking up to a wonderful fresh sunny morning, with a headache, I thought, why not go for CW in West Harrow Park? Set the alarm for 30 minutes time and off I went. The cool breeze and warm sunlight was magical. Then the alarm went and needed to hurry back home for work as I was already late. The inner voice commanded stop and chant the Gayatri and Surya Mantras. I duly obeyed and the chanted Mohanji’s Gayatri Mantra. Love was pouring through and I could feel the presence of Sathya Sai, Shirdi Sai and many archangels. When I opened my eyes I could see the golden white prana throughout the entire park. No headache. Just gratitude and divine love. Mohanji has given us an amazing gift, with practice, it will transform us.”

Experience sharing from Daniela, Croatia:

“Before any kind of sound was created, silence must have existed. Without silence, there is no sound. Silence is the foundation. Sound is an upgrade. Silence is form, sound is content. Silence is absolute, sound is relative. When we walk consciously, focus is on silence between inhalation and exhalation. In fact, focus isn’t on the silence itself, but on something in us which existed as the absolute foundation before there was any kind of content. Focus on silence isn’t just Silence, but a true encounter with ourselves.”

Experience sharing from Ágnes Horányi, Hungary:

“I was feeling as if I had done it a lot of times before. When I started, after a while I felt my body was so heavy that I didn’t know how to move. Then I let my body be moved by everpresent force, as I couldn’t feel myself as a mover of my body any more. Such a beautiful feeling.”

Experience sharing from Kristina, Croatia:

“As I gradually became aware of the gaps between breathing in and breathing out the breathing itself became slower and the gaps became longer. At one point I started to feel I could cease breathing. After Walking I sat in a meditation, breathing through my spine up and down, facing towards the sun. I love Conscious Walking and the feeling of lightness after.”

Experience sharing from Ljiljana Stojsic, Serbia:

“After today’s Conscious Walking in our beautiful park, 
which since this morning was shrouded again in tender white, snow cover, I felt wonderful and holistically regenerated, energized, happy and enthusiastic. During the walk I felt a deep joy, gratitude and love and the precious unity among us all, for which I’m so thankful. That profound and already confirmed realization of the unbreakable bond between everything and all of us and the knowing that we are all connected in such a powerful, beautiful way, is for me the greatest divine gift received so far. 
I’m eternally grateful.”

Experience sharing from Seema, South Africa:

“When you worship the ground you walk on and the people that make your life worthwhile, you realise that life is so simple. We just complicate it. CW has helped me be calmer, more focused and happy.”

Experience sharing from Jelena, Serbia:

“I felt like walking lasted for hours, but I wanted more. Supported, grounded, conscious of everything happening inside, but all around me as well. I felt the connection and Oneness with Mohanji presence as always.”

Experience sharing from Zoran, Macedonia:

“When I started the meditation I had so many thoughts racing one after another…I was sure it will be a struggle to meditate effectively… but half way through the momentum of consistent practicing of CW got the gears and pulled me through in the clear space of witnessing and centering in the spine. It was yet another wonderful CW experience.”

Experience sharing from Daniela, Croatia:

“When we walk consciously, we walk as quickly as it suits us, mostly it’s a average speed – neither too fast, nor too slow (in my case). Focus is on the spine. Walking happens automatically, as well as looking downwards. Focusing on the spine also comes automatically at one point. Nevertheless, there is a moment in Conscious Walking which doesn’t come automatically. It requires our full attention. When we walk consciously, we direct our attention towards the small break which comes in between inhalation and exhalation. I’ll name it SILENCE (that’s what it is actually).

In between that two fragments of Silence, there’s an inhalation or an exhalation. Inhalation is a path from point A to point B, while exhalation is a path from the point B back to the point A. That’s how we’ve got a feeling that there’s time needed to get from the point A to B, and than back to the point A.
 A and B points are those small fragments of Silence which comes in between inhalation and exhalation. The whole process can also be depicted as a circle – a path which leads us back to that starting point again.

As breathing comes naturally and continuously without stopping, there’s no way for us to overstay in that point of Silence. It seems that it constantly escapes us and that our attention keeps going to the inhalation or exhalation while it stops briefly in that very same point of Silence. In Conscious Walking by Mohanji, we have to be aware of that small break between inhalation and exhalation. We have to be aware of the Silence. It is impossible to study that point, it’s impossible to stay in it, because it’s situated in a gap.

The problem is probably in the very same perception of what is going on in the process. What if there exists only that point of Silence and nothing else? What if there’s no longitude, not even a circle, nothing but that very same point?

Distance is actually a path which a point takes through time. There’s the Point, there’s Time, and there’s the Path. But in fact, there’s nothing but that very same Point – everything else is just a manifestation of that Point. These different manifestations create the illusion that the Point seems to vanish and time is needed to go back to that Point.

If I’m focused on that point of Silence, I never even come out of it, neither I come back to it, because it’s present in every moment as a Foundation. The foundation which allows those inhalations and exhalations to flourish
.”

Experience sharing from Caroline, Australia:

“Before the Conscious Walk, I connected to Mohanji’s consciousness through the eye card and listened to/mentally chanted Mohanji’s Gayatri Mantra on my phone. I find that connecting to Mohanji’s consciousness prior to the Conscious Walking meditation enhances the effect of my practice. During the Conscious Walk, I was watching the frenzy of thoughts arising and falling in the choppy sea of my untamed mind. Quite honestly, I was also skeptically thinking that today’s meditative walk was not really effective for me in my preoccupied state of mind. Finally we reached the end point of our Conscious Walking circuit, where we usually sit and meditate a while longer under a big, beautiful tree. I finally unlocked my eyes, and raised my head, only to find that I could hardly move. I felt quasi-paralyzed by such a feeling of deep peace, that all I could do was sit and bask in profound silence and bliss for the next ten or so minutes. The inverted pyramid meditation that we practiced next provoked an incredibly strong tingling sensation in my lower body, especially while chanting on the root chakra and meditating on my connection with Mother Earth. I felt so connected, grateful, at peace, loved by and in love with Mother Earth and all of Creation. It was one of the most beautiful experiences of universal consciousness, oneness, unconditional love or the unfathomable nature of the Supreme that I’ve ever had. Thank you so much Mohanji for guiding me to this glimpse of a greater glory. With deep gratitude and love, from Caroline in North Queensland, Australia.”

Experience sharing from Shivani, UK:

“Conscious Walk today… I have been practicing this since its launch in June. Everyday (nearly) for about 15-20 minutes, I do conscious walk barefoot. Apart from the profound silence that engulfs me suddenly, it also helps to totally connect with Mother Earth. As I place each foot forward, its like kissing the ground with my feet. I have felt totally grounded and the energy from the earth leaves me refreshed for the whole day. Practicing walking consciously has greatly facilitated the development of mindfulness in ordinary daily life. Learning to establish awareness during walking, when I am physically moving with my eyes open has helped me to arouse that same wakeful quality during other activities, such as practicing yoga, eating, washing dishes, or driving. It is easier to arouse mindfulness while walking to the shop, through the park, or during any other time. Meditation has begun to permeate my entire life. 
Sai Ram.”

Experience sharing from Sanja, Croatia:

“We had beautiful autumn morning, perfect for walk. When we have just started walking, lot of thoughts was running through my mind and I thought that it will ruin my conscious walking because I cannot focus. All of a sudden, my legs became really heavy, as if it weighed 100 kilo, it made me to walk even more slowly, and as I walked very very slow- my mind simply went off. I realised that even if I wasn’t walk fast in the beginning, my mind was in the fifth gear, so when I slowed down my physical movement, mind went off and I enjoyed all of benefits of conscious walking.”

Experience sharing from Ana, Macedonia:

“Same as every Sunday, it was wonderful…

I felt as if I am one head above myself

I had a feeling that I am taller, bigger

I was merged with nature, light as air…

OMNIPRESENT

But, what amazed me the most was our devotion and conviction 🙂

As young aspirants with huge faith, we gathered under the rain to walk consciously.

Lazar didn’t even bring an umbrella with him 🙂

And I wonder

at is that energy, what is that force?

What is that which guides us and drives us to renounce it all?

And what is that which makes me so devoted to Mohanji’s Path?

My devotion is getting bigger and bigger, and no bad weather can stop me from practicing the technique

I even ask myself?

What if the Guru tells me to jump in the river?

Would I do it?

I think that I would 🙂

Because I would know that it is good for me 🙂

Because that is the way you love ones Guru

With the WHOLE HEART

And mine… already belongs to MOHANJI”

Experience sharing from Neha Pareh, Canada:

“Ever since Mohanji has introduced Conscious Walk in our lives I have experienced that 30 mins of conscious walk each day since the past few days during my lunch hour is bringing in unbelievable stillness in my train of thoughts. I am actually smelling the breeze, hearing the birds chirp, seeing small insects that might come beneath my feet….😦 which I have many times been so unconscious about in the mad rush of this current life style. I am more conscious of each word that is let out, each thought that happens within the mind and each action that displays an expression. My food habits have changed remarkably. Each portion taken is consciously thought for. I am getting more aware of my emotions, like my anger, fatigue that the body experiences and the frustration of not getting what we believe is correct. I see clearly The meaning of Life, why have we come here and where are we going. Unconditional Love and Service is the only means and way to serve The Divine and Liberate. This technique aides us in realizing our main purpose of Liberation . Its an amazing tool to get back to oneself. With time we have become more and more dispersed…spreading far and wide in all directions, with Mohanji’s Grace and teachings, we are now becoming more aware of where we belong and what is our true nature. He showed us the way to get to the roots, He teaches us to be Love..which is our true nature….. Ananda is our nature and we must work hard to reach it by getting close to our inner self. Thank You Mohanji for imparting this very Priceless and simple method to realize our PurposeThank You Mohanji for being so generous and loving. All Your hard work …and we are getting the techniques ready on a platter……….still we at times are inconsiderate of what we receive and end up comparing with others…….
Love is Myself, Love is Thyself, Love is everywhere…………..we fail to recognize that
Recognize Him He is That, dive within, You Will find That
Mohanji is That……..We are That….
its a long and Conscious walk ahead to realize That. 
But if we Consciously Walk with Divine’s Graceful hand in hand 
than …….. nothing can stop us from reaching That 🙂
Awaken Thyself and Consciously Walk along this Path,
There maybe unknown turns and pot holes deep down this Path,
But Do not assume You are left all alone by your side.
Cause,,,,, HE is ALWAYS Walking along Your side,
HE is walking Your steps , HE is clearing Your Path….
He is the Light that is beaming gradually and Consciously within your heart.
Experience Thyself, within each step, feel the Oneness with Mother Nature 
Come on all lets get up and Consciously Walk along this Path…
Atleast now Recognize Thyself……… You are That. You are That.”

Experience sharing from Mirjana Andres-Rogović, Croatia:

“I wasn’t expecting it will be that powerful. Even after first few minutes of conscious breathing, the walk became almost bodiless, I didn’t feel my ankles, which otherwise slip and twist on rocks, and in the moments between in breath and out-breath all stones became slightly blurred, and than in that brief moment of total peace, they became round and even like eggs in a casket. As if I was looking with my Soul and not with my eyes. When I came tip the end of the road, I felt i could move ahead walking further on the sea. It was difficult to stop, as if I was blocked in flight, because when I did stop the trees continued moving as if moving away from me, and that continued for some time. WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO ALL. LOVE YOU UNCONDITIONALLY.”

Experience sharing from Nirupma, India:

“Conscious Walking for half an hour in the morning has given me solace and peace. You become one with yourself. Your whole body gets filled up with love, tears flow. And after CW when you sit on a bench in the park with closed eyes it seems as if you are part of universe, everything is moving and you are floating in it.”

Conscious Walking™ – a powerful dynamic meditation technique by Raja Yogi Mohanji

On June 21st 2015, for the first time in history, the world was observing International Yoga Day. It was declared by the UN General Assembly and suggested by the Indian Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi to be on June 21st as it is the longest day of the year (Summer Solstice) in the Northern Hemisphere. From Yoga perspective, Summer Solstice marks the transition to Dakshinayana which is considered a time when the Nature is most supportive for doing Spiritual practices. Also, the first full moon after Sumer Solstice is known as Guru Poornima, a day when Lord Shiva (Adi Guru) is said to have started imparting the knowledge of Yoga to the world.

In order to commemorate this occasion worldwide, Raja Yogi Mohanji’s followers assembled across the globe to practice the powerful dynamic meditation technique called The Conscious Walking. Conscious Walking is a newly created technique by Raja Yogi Mohanji. This simple yet very transformative technique is free of charge, and has multiple benefits:

– It is good for health, metabolism, digestion, circulation and Life,
– It helps self control,
– It reduces anxieties, anger, insecurities and fears,
– It increases concentration.
– It increases togetherness and oneness.
What follows are some of the accounts of Mohanji’s followers regarding the Conscious Walking events that took place across the many cities through the world.

Conscious Walking in Mumbai

“Meditative walk in the lungs of Mumbai — we conducted Conscious Walk in Aarey this morning. 13 people joined us and enjoyed a refreshing meditative walk in a nature park in the middle of Mumbai metropole. The monsoon graced us with a gentle break, rain stopped exactly for the entire period of our walk and allowed us to breath in fresh air while fully going within.”

Conscious Walking in Pune

“Our first Conscious Walking in Pune was an interesting and new experience for many. Although it was raining heavily and we couldn’t go out in nature, we carried on with our walk indoors. Some could practice very well, some wanted to practise it regularly to get the hang of it. People who have learned the technique found it useful as a daily tool to practice everyday. A nice start on the International World Yoga Day.”

Conscious Walking in Delhi

As the world celebrated the 1st Yoga Day, about 50 souls stepped out early morning to do the first Conscious Walk with Grace of Shri Rajyogi Mohanji. The Conscious Walk was organised at three locations in Delhi and its suburb Gurgaon. Some of the locations also did chanting, humming and breathing exercise before doing the Conscious Walk. People at Nizamuddin location also did yoga after the Conscious Walk. Every person who took part felt the immediate meditative calm after doing the Conscious Walk as this was completely different from morning walks while chatting with friends. In fact, some of the people have already got hooked on this and want to do Conscious Walk every day!

Conscious Walking in Dubai

At 7 o’clock, we gathered at Zabeel Park, Dubai for our first conscious walk in UAE. After a brief about the conscious walk, which is designed by our beloved Mohanji for the betterment of the world, we started with deep breathing to calm ourselves from the day’s hectic activities. Then, we rotated our neck clockwise and anticlockwise three times, to relax our neck and shoulders. Afterwards, we started our walk. 

It was almost 40 degrees outside and over 50% humidity. But, once we started walking, we didn’t realize anything. We all had Mohanji filled within us. After around 20 minutes walking, we all shared our experiences. Rajeev said he constantly heard Mohanji’s voice, saying, “Concentrate on your spine”! Iliana said she felt a real calmness beaming out from within. Goolcher felt as if she was getting aligned, both bodily and mentally. Jay was walking quietly and slowly, enjoying the bliss!

Thank you, Mohanji, for this wonderful gift!

Today marked an auspicious day in the lives of all these connected to Mohanji. As a gift to the whole world, on this day the international Yoga day, Mohanji introduces Conscious walking. It is a dynamic mediation at allows one to be in the present and expand awareness.

We had our first conscious walking session during our visit to the retreat venue. It was amazing. Even the retreat manager joined us and had after the experience asked if she could join us for meditations to experience more.

Thank you for this blessing on this wonderful day. To have you introduce this mediation and come to South Africa on fathers day, is such a blessing. Thank you Babaji. Thank you.”

Conscious Walking in Novi Sad

“CONSCIOUS WALK on the first summer day – After the cold and windy sunrise we had a really chilly morning for the last day of spring. The energy flow was high both from the fresh air and because there is no distraction on secondary things, all attention is on the inside and breathing. Mind is cleansed and energy spared and accumulated. After meditative conscious walk, feeling we spontaneously wished to meditate so we ended the conscious walk with a short meditation.”

Conscious Walking in Skopje

Today in the City park in Skopje, we practiced the technique for dynamic meditation “Conscious Walking” developed by Mohanji. Though the heavily rainy day wanted to dishearten us from practicing, the rain stopped right on start off time so we could consciously walk for half an hour. In the end we practiced the powerful technique “Inverted Pyramid” which was a full jackpot since each one of the present reported experiencing Oneness and Expanded Consciousness.”

The Grand Cross Meditation(s) on June 26th, 2010

The White Flower - Grand Cross gift from Marina

Dear friends,

So much has happened on the day of Grand Cross meditation that it became a real challenge for me to present it to you in a condensed form. As a group of sincere, experiential spiritualists, we did our best to contribute to the wave of Love and positivity that was spread on our beautiful planet on June 26th.

BTW meditation was conducted at more or less the same time in Dubai, Muscat, Greece, New Delhi, Thane, Mumbai, Munich, London and Belgrade (and other locations where it was done individually). All were tuning in and all had their own profound experiences – Mohanji’s presence was clearly felt at all the locations.

Here’s the account of Dubai meditation and synopsis of what happened at some of the stated locations:

Dubai, June 26th- the Grand Cross experience

Since early morning, Mohanji and I were in full action, running from one end of Dubai to another  in order to complete the Seva tasks for the day. Last was the blessing of one house in Mirdif – the lady who invited us had many beautiful artifacts in her new home, but did not know how a picture of Sathya Sai Baba appeared in her kitchen. After we spent some time together, she understood just how big of a blessing this is and that it is not a coincidence that Mohanji, from all the people, was the first person she offered lunch in her new house. Baba’s leelas always bring ever-new joy!

The young Sathya Sai Baba

We rushed to Ashima’s apartment but, by the time we arrived, most people have gathered already. We barely had a few minutes to freshen up – such haste is not our normal practice before Mohanji conducts BTW and goes into expanded state, but I guess this was a part of Grand Cross scenario…. 🙂 At the edges is the chaos, but at the center, where the Soul resides, the order is found. The gateway to that center is only through Love.

Expanded Heart - gateway to higher dimensions

Grand Cross teaches us that, by lifting the consciousness and experiencing the unconditionality of pure love, we reach the center free of all the chaos, free of all the agony of the gross. It is like an eye of the storm. Only brave ones dare to enter, only brave ones dare to love unconditionally…

The impromptu meditation that Mohanji conducted on that day arrived straight from that sacred space. It was not about the words, it was about the tangible experience of that overwhelming energy. I have seen Mohanji in Samadhi before and could understand, by the way he was uttering the words, that he was in that state and that talking is a great struggle for him. But the experience he delivered (i.e. that was delivered through him) was superb. I became like a stone statue – at that time no photo taking and no movement was possible from my side. At one point I had a clear intuitive message to change the CD, which I did somehow, and we all allowed the love and devotion to blossom following the loving tunes of Arati from Siddha Yoga tradition.

Since so many people came that some had to even sit in the hallway, Shaktipat during meditation was simply not possible. Mohanji thus said that he will give individual Shaktipats to all after the meditation. That lasted for more than an hour and gave us enough time to bathe in the experience until it was time for Mohanji and I to fly back to Muscat.

At the airport he went into expanded state again, as so many people from different locations across the globe were still tuning into his consciousness. I knew how difficult it was for him to move while in that supple stage – as we were moving through the security checks and boarding the plane, I witnessed the sweet balancing of all those activities at different planes of existence, all happening at the same time… Through that consciousness, we were all connected, although at different locations:

BTW in Munich (Germany) – sharing by Marina

“I felt we were having a private audience with Mohanji. Very dense and intense energy. Brilliant and touching. Lots of heat got generated. In fact I felt as if lava was surrounding my body when I gave Shaktipat. White lava. And it was as if we were hovering on a soft white cloud of love and light – I felt and saw the most intense yet gentle heat of white (!) fire within that cloud. White lava and fire! Just brilliant – pure and powerful!

 And one of the most touching feedbacks came from a lady who described the big and bright light she saw, the enormous heat she felt in her hips and lower back and that she saw flower petals opening up at the top of her head at one point during Shaktipat. In fact I also felt an opening on her head when I touched her Sahasrara. When she talked about her experience after the meditation her eyes and mine just locked – clicked – and tears welled up, on both sides.
What an energy that Mohanji and the divine forces let flow through us!! Nourishing and purifying at all levels.”

BTW in New Delhi – sharing by Dana

“[…]During the meditation so much of heat got generated that my chest and cheeks were burning and throat was so dry. Contrary to that, my palms were ice cold. I couldn’t wait to drink some water as well as to place my cold palms on my burning cheeks.

My body was vibrating even before we started with breathing techniques and meditation. Richa told me later on that I didn’t have a human form at all. I was moving amongst all of them as a white light (actually she described it as “if I was touched, I would fly higher – like cotton”).

Dana - the white light

For the first time, my home was full of people. When I came to give Shaktipat to Suzy, an amazing thing happened – the moment I placed my palm on her crown chakra, I became so expanded that I felt again like a giant from Alladin’s lamp. It was like being connected straight to the source… putting your finger in the plug point which is Creator Himself.”

BTW in Muscat – sharing by Dr. Deepali

“[…]I could clearly see the soul of each person present. I also could see the attachment of the EGO with the soul. I also saw Mohanji’s energy working on them. I realized that the side movements which I felt distinctly throughout the meditation were nothing but fight between ego and his energy. Ego was resisting the energy. It did not want to leave the soul. Soul was quiet, watching the game. Soul is a pure energy; unaffected by anything. The fight was quite serious. Mohanji had tough time to fight with each one’s ego. Ultimately Mohanji won the fight. His energy is so pure and hence it is strong. He gave only two choices, either work with awareness or with emotions.

This fight was to make a big shift towards awareness. I remembered that, during QA on 18 June 2010, he had mentioned about these choices. He actually installed the choice of awareness. This is the need of the time. Consciousness is shifting at faster speed. If we catch up, we get it. Otherwise, we wait; we may have to wait for a life time or few life times.

There was resistance by each person’s ego. Degree of resistance was different. At last, Mohanji gave everyone a thick solid shield and lifted them up in the higher consciousness. Hope each person understands what they have been gifted with. He achieved the purpose of today’s meditation. This was a beautiful experience.”

BTW in London – sharing by Fabian:

Fabian and Nicole - BTW in London, Grand Cross day

“This was an extremely powerful Shaktipat for all the participants. We started the meditation in sync with the Dubai group at 2pm London time (which was 5 pm Dubai time) so that we could join Mohanji’s group astrally. After the meditation we had a brief satsang and during the sharing of experiences we found that two meditators had the same vision of mainly Egyptian content. Metta to all, Fabian”

Belgrade BTW (Serbia) – sharing by Marija:

“On this special day in the universe we chose to ‘get wired’ to the opening of the new chapter in universal consciousness, chapter of increased awareness – through love, understanding and compassion.

Belgrade’s Power of Purity Group was great both in quantity and quality.  The presence of Mohanji’s expanded state was so large, like I’ve never experienced before. Once I started giving Shaktipat, my heart started beating unbelievably hard until the very end of meditation. The heat on my palms was so intense, as if they had 100 degrees in them.  Also, I could clearly feel strong vibrations along the spine of many who were present. At one moment, after giving Shaktipat to Dusan (highly evolved boy you could read about in the “Blast in all Directions” blog post) my entire hand became numb and my face started getting numb too (later on, his father Goran said that Dusan went home singing out loud, smiling and being so open and extroverted, despite the fact that he is most of the time quiet, observing, and more introverted).  What a great transformation!! 🙂

As meditation continued and the group energy expanded even more, I felt as if our entire room lifted off the ground and that we were about to start flying collectively, just like in the greatest fairytales :-). It is just that this was real, cuz the energy was so tangible, and present.  After meditation was over, there was a long silence, and I was practically speechless.  I saw the happiness in people’s eyes, their level of openness, and the invisible bonds we all made together.

Thank you Mohanji, thank you all the great Masters, thank you Universe for allowing us to witness changes both in ourselves and in the world itself, and for reminding us that we are made of pure energy and love.  It is Oneness that we all are part of, and that we need to go back to.”

And finally, I would like to crown this blog post with the following words of Mohanji, echoing into eternity:

 There is deep clarity in the path of Shiva. Same consciousness operates. The path is both simple and extremely difficult. Simple because there is nothing to do. Just like the monkey’s child clings on to its mother, disciples cling on to the tangible Guru and the Guru takes them to the highest possible elevation, only as much as the disciple can handle. The child monkey is not climbing any tree. It cannot, by itself. The mother climbs. The child holds on. If the child leaves its mother’s hands, it could fall into the depths and die. So, the path is both simple and difficult. The main difficulty is the fall due to our ego. Sometime, when great experiences are happening to all around us, through us, we feel that we are giving those experiences and we forget the hands behind our power.

The power happens to us, due to the Grace. The unfailing grace happens from the Lord Almighty. When we forget the Almighty and His angels, do-er ship happens and then we fall. Do-er ship increases our ego. It makes us alienated from the reality. So, our path is all about FAITH, PURITY and SURRENDER. Then, we will always remain in the lap of the Almighty. We will always remain well protected. We will always operate in Supreme Consciousness.

In deep surrender,

Biba

Mohanji and Biba - holding on, with Faith, Purity and Surrender...
