This article is useful for those who have already started learning Sahaja Meditation. Otherwise please consider learning online or at a local class.

The collective being
The universe is made of the same elements which make up our physical bodies. Therefore it is managed by the same principles that manage our subtle being. One of the fundamental divine principles is collectivity.

Since the opening of the Sahasrara chakra by Shri Mataji in 1970, each Sahaja Meditation practitioner is related to every other Sahaja Meditation practitioner. When we focus our desire on achieving thoughtless awareness every day in our meditation, we automatically become collectively conscious. Pure knowledge or divine insights enter our attention. We discover that not only are we absorbing pure vibrations, we are also emitting pure vibrations. We are one with the collective being.

Being connected
When we are at Sahasrara (the 7th chakra) our awareness and attention connect us, in a profound way, to other human beings. In collective consciousness we focus on the vibrations-what we feel in our hands, on our head, and in the chakras themselves. As a detached observer of ourself, we see our thoughts and emotions and the sensations in our body. We can also feel the state of another person’s subtle system, even someone who is far away.

In collective consciousness, we are like a terminal connected to a mainframe computer. In spiritual terms, we are an instrument that is connected to God. We can perceive exactly what the divine attention perceives-the knowledge of reality.

In meditation we can penetrate to the roots of our behavior. Identified with the spirit, we reflect on the condition of our vehicle, without judging ourselves.

In the normal course of the day, our attention can drop down from Sahasrara and we can mistakenly believe that we are isolated and separate from others. We react to events, we succumb to old habits, we think about the past and plan for the future.

Once we attain the state of meditation, we notice the actions of ego and superego. When we introspect, we look within our own heart and see what our purest desires are, what our highest goals are. In meditation we can make all these discoveries and connections without any mental activity or analysis. We can then decide to overcome our defects and weaknesses, especially the tricks and resistances of the ego.

We get many opportunities to see ourselves through the eyes of others when we are in Sahaja collectivity. As we work out the angularities and difficulties in our relationships in Sahaja Meditation, we are sorting things out at a subtle and universal level.

At Sahasrara, supported by the collective being, we can at last let go of our conditionings, guilt, fear and disturbing memories. We allow the kundalini to remove all the darkness and watch ourselves transcend ourselves.

Being collective
When you gather many lighted candles there is more light. Collective meditation, seminars and any encounters with Sahaja Meditation practitioners result in a much stronger flow of vibrations. As it flows more, we are also able to absorb more of the pure divine energy. In the company of other practitioners, our kundalini is able to work much more effectively.

We grow the fastest when we meditate collectively. Any activity that brings us together with other realized souls brings us to Sahasrara. In Sahaja Meditation the desire, achievements, meditation, cleaning and introspection are both individual and collective. We can also clean and vibrate our surroundings and thereby have a profound impact on our immediate environment and on our country.

    Unfortunately I am not able to meditate collectively, as I live a fair distance away, from the nearest yogi’s. I meditate twice a day, also I do the online mon night and tue. Will I still be able to eventually get to wear we all want to be without the group work? Anyone out there in the same situation.

    Hi Mel,

    I’m not in the same situation as you, as I live in a large city (Vancouver) and where I have been meditating at home and with others for a long time.

    I am sure that you can definitely grow and enjoy deeper experiences, even being farther away.

    The online meditations are an extremely viable way to benefit from group meditations, even if you are physically far apart. There is no doubt that meditating in small groups is indeed a strong experience and beneficial, although with that said, the journey of meditation is one that takes place inside you.

    There are also regular events, meditation classes and sometimes seminars that take place all around the world. I hope you will get a chance to make it out to one one day.
