An Experience of Meditation That Cures

Read Hardik’s* experience of Agneya – meditation sessions in Chetna, and how it connects to the science of well-being.

 

 

In today’s Agneya session, I went back to my childhood 7-14. I went to school where I could see I was bullied. I could see the boys who used to bully me. I breathed my emotion (fear). I started crying and my left hand was trembling. I could see one incident in the school where I was given punishment because of these boys. I could feel shame that I am in their forced bad company. A lot of incidents came like a flash where I was scared and I cried out and my hands banged on the bed.

Later I saw that the guy left the school and I saw few good moments of relief & happiness.
I could see my childhood & best friend with whom I was having a discussion and later I remembered the memory where we traveled together to Bangalore for our boarding school.

 

 

I also want to share that, usually, my pulse is always at an average of 90+ (since 2010-11, rarely it goes below 70).

Today my pulse came down to 68 after the NV Swimming/Agneya session. I am sharing the last 2 days’ Pulse chart. Nowhere, it came down below 83 yesterday and 76 on April 16th (I keep a track of it since I have had sleep issues after my pulse started going above 95+ from 2010-2011 onwards. Last I can track it going to 66 in Aug–2019 during a Meditation Session).

 

Thank You. Feels Good Breathing the Emotion.

 

 

“A normal pulse rate will always correspond to optimal breathing rate, which actually means optimal oxygenation, which means if you continue to remain in this state, you cannot attract suffering.”

While drawing our algorithm, we start with identifying our symptoms. Do we look at our symptoms of today or from our childhood? Our tendencies also seem like they are about today and not from our childhood. How should I interpret this?

You can start with identifying your symptoms today and make your Algorithm identifying your Lack, Tendency and Pattern. It may seem like the tendencies are loud and clear today. This is only because as an adult, you are either more aware of it, or the tendency is more pronounced. However, if you go back to that age group of 7-14, you will find that the same tendency existed back then as well.  

For example – your lack is abandonment and so your tendency is need to prove/ excel. As an adult, you try extremely hard to prove yourself at work, but maybe as a ten-year-old you wanted to make sure that you win a colouring competition or feel worthy by collecting the maximum number of berries or fruits. 

 So, you would notice how the nature of tendency existed even back then – sometimes subtly, sometimes pronounced. It is just a matter of developing sensitivity to recognize it in that time and space. However, you can always work with current scenarios. 

Now that I have made my algorithm and have identified my lack, what do I do with this? Do I have to re-visit my childhood?

In every moment of disappointment – current or past, you can experience the lack. There are two ways to attend to the lack, once identified – 

  1.  You may simply keep your Algorithm/Lack in awareness by writing the events of the current time and go into breathing 
  2. You can revisit your childhood and write about moments that you experienced the Lack/Algorithm and once you have written a few events (in detail), you may lay down and begin to observe your breath. 

In either of the processes, your Algorithm/lack is in your complete awareness and observing your breath after this would only bring an expansion in your awareness. 

After finding my LTP and mapping my algorithm, I can see how I have suffered in my childhood and continue to do so. What can I do to remedy this and reverse my suffering?

 Since you are seeking the cure, you must know that state of meditation is the state of cure. The more you are in this state, the more you move towards light, thus curing your suffering.  

All the things which come into your awareness, must now be attended to by Observing your breath. For process of attending to what has surfaced, refer to Ques no 8
