Having Spiritual Experiences….

Having Spiritual Experiences….

A Question was asked by someone about him having spiritual experiences and why he doesn’t have this kind of experience more often since he can’t get back to having that same experience again. Guruka Singh talks about this and also about the pitfalls of expectations.

The question was asked: I’m not amritdhari, but the first time I came to the gurus shrine (Gurdwara), I experienced an amazing experience, I felt this amazing bliss. Now it’s been almost 8 months and nothing like that has ever happened again, even though I have increased my simran and nitnem from before. I feel discouraged, what do you think I am lacking? Is it amrit? Was that experience just a preview to get my attention?

  1. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Every moment is sacred… :-)

    Expectations are tricky, I have had those moments of ecstasy when I stared to meditate and surely I was expecting things to happen but now, feel a sweet calm flow through me when I have a steady sadhana and don't rush through it. And now reciting Japji in the morning, that is such a sweet start of the day.

    Great and timely video answer for any level of "beginning" to intermediate practitioner. Many blessings. Experiences can be like walking through doors. Sometimes we walk through many doors on our path, but if we are moving forwards, we don't really walk through the same door twice. Sometimes the doors are far apart… And sometimes we do have series of experiences, or repeating experiences. I can only guess these are due to the subtle unraveling of layers of personal expansion and growth. Yogi Bhajan always said "keep up" was the mantra of the age. So, keep up, even through the doldrums (shakti pad?) of meditation and practice. Sometimes it may even help to try to switch things up a bit from time to time so you come back with a fresh perspective (i.e. try a day or two of another yoga or another bani, or kriya, meditation, or related spiritual tool). Variety is the spice of life, so don't allow sadhana also to become it's own rut and routine – discipline doesn't have to be boring. Ang sung wahe guru.

    Very nice & encouraging way of sharing the different type of experiences with same frame mind person.Known media-is having blind faith in GOD.
    Sharing the ideas without being biased towards any one-known or unknown.
    Many aspects of life can be learnt from others.
