Sahaja Yoga Meditation for artists

Sahaja Yoga founder Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
SAHAJA YOGA MEDITATION FOR ARTISTS & THOSE WITH CREATIVE ASPIRATIONS

Most Human Beings have either a love of beautiful, artistic things, and / or a desire to create something beautiful with their own hands.This is a Divine quality. Many of these beautiful creations by people over perhaps thousands of years, are Eternal, they give joy and pleasure to us for ever...This applies to Painters, Sculptors, Musicians, Architects, and to all branches of arts, crafts, music etc. and is especially revelent for both teachers and students of The Arts.

If you are one of those gifted and extremely fortunate people who both practice and love "art" and creative pursuits, here is an important message for you. This message also is for those who simply long to be creative, and artistic. In our Evolution, creatvity has been built inside us. We've all sensed that these beautiful objects of art that we see, have come from deep inside someone. In my own case, I never knew that I would ever be able to draw and paint, and be creative in other ways. There was always, for many years, a mental block, a complete inability to be "artistic". 24 years ago, after seeking answers to the meaning of life, I stumbled on Sahaja Pure Meditation. I went to a free Class in Auckland. It was incredibly simple: I raised my own "awareness" in a short meditative process, and straight away, but very subtly initially, my "thinking" changed. A lot of the old jumblee jumble of thoughts subsided. It really surprised me because I was quite intense about life. I used to think a great deal, and worry a lot about all sorts of things.

Suddenly there was a new dimension in my life: a dimension of peace and an inner feeling of joy. As my life came together, I became a wiser person. I am certain it was through doing a little bit of meditation in the morning, and evening. This set me up for stress- free day, and a good rest at night. I got married after this, and we had a beautiful daughter, who, not long after she learned to talk, said "Daddy, can you draw me a house?"

Somehow, I did - miraculously- then it was a horse, a truck, etc. This inspired me to go to some art classes and really see if I could make some nice drawings, and paintings. I so enjoyed these classes, and as time went by the creativity inside me came out. So from nil creativity, I was able to enjoy myself, and express that special artistic aptitude we all have inside us.

So, if you are looking to enhance your inspiration, your creativity, I would
recommend trying out this meditation. It certainly brings a calmness and peace to your life and when you are in "thoughtless awareness" all doubts and fears drop away. You actually do feel inspired, and that there is nothing you cannot achieve. But, don't let any thoughts take you out of your meditation: it is such a precious state to experience, and is very rare for some.

If you would like to find a free Sahaja Yoga Meditation Class, go back to the Website, and click on the Links. May you find that peace and joy within yourself, and with that creativity you have inside you make a wonderful contribution to human achievements and endeavours.

Hey, I appreciate your blog. Yoga is a tension. Relaxation is a decay. No relaxation yoga exists. Connie Bowman, you are an ungifted fool and charlatan who is out of touch with any yoga. If you really knew something about yoga, your voice would not be so vile and twang, as if it was coming from you ass. thanks!
