How does Sahaja Meditation affect relationships and interactions with other people?
Once you begin the practice of Sahaja Meditation, your relationships improve significantly all around — with everyone. I think there are several reasons for this…
First, many of our relationship issues arise because we project our attention outwards, onto others, which can leads us make judgments and form expectations of them and the manner in which they interact with us.
Once the inner energy awakening happens and you begin meditating, your attention turns inward — deep inside yourself, into your own subtle energy system, the energy centers. You become more focused on how to improve yourself. Your attention becomes balanced and you focus equally on self-improvement through powerful self-introspection, instead of seeking solutions externally with other people, situations, or circumstances. This alone brings about a powerful change in your personality. The people around you quickly notice that your attitude has improved and that you're surrounded by an aura of peace and contentment. Over time, as you continue to improve your energy centers and overall personality, people are likely to find you to be more pleasant to be around and see you as someone who has valuable advice to offer and can help them solve their problems.
Sahaja Meditation principles teach you to look inside yourself first, when solving problems. Sahaja Meditation makes a person peaceful from within and over time, eliminates negative emotions. This combination builds a powerful foundation for positive interactions with others and strong, pure relationships.
Now, as you progress through the spiritual journey, your attention and interests shift to the higher things in life as opposed to material pursuits, such as keeping up appearances by investing heavily in material possessions or flirting around with women to bolster your own ego. You are desperately focused on trying to "fill gaping holes" with ego-driven pursuits. The holes are gone. So, your relationships with people tend to be more pure. You're not seeking commercial gains or or trying to dominate others in your life. You can give of yourself without expecting anything in return.
Finally, the center at the cervical plexus governs clarity of speech, communication and ability to interact with others. Once this center is energized and brought into balance after the inner energy awakening, your communication and relationship skills automatically show a significant improvement.
Does Sahaja Meditation help make you more aware of how your actions impact others?
In an indirect way, yes. Sahaja Meditation opens up the power of introspection within oneself and strengthens one's ability to focus on self-improvement and developing better personal qualities. Sahaja Meditation helps you analyze your own feelings — whether positive or negative — and determine what's triggering them.
So, through your own process of self-awareness and self-realization, your sensitivity to the feelings of others feelings automatically increases and you're able to put yourself in someone else's shoes. You're better able to visualize and understand how others might feel or anticipate someone's reactions to your own words and deeds. Because you can see yourself in high definition and with crystal clarity, you're able to see others in high definition and with crystal clarity.
