A friend invited me to a karma guru meditation, and the strangest thing happened to me. It still puzzles me. As a busy mum of two, I welcomed the opportunity to spend some time alone, just for myself, in a peaceful and relaxing setting. I am a complete novice at meditation but after a short introduction to the first 8 chakras, I was able to enjoy my most relaxing and enjoyable time during a meditation so far. However, it was 2 weeks later that I noticed a significant change in my life. I had no particular health concerns or other issues I wanted to resolve but for the last year and a half I had been enjoying some ice cream every day. It started as the occasional treat post-pregnancy until I needed 1 or 2 big tubs…every single day. It didn’t seem like an uncontrollable problem to me, until I tried to stop this nonsense and couldn’t last more than 2 weeks. I’d want it first thing in the morning, during the day, just before bed. The moment one tub was finished, I had to make sure I had another one in the freezer. And my family had no idea, it was too embarrassing.
It never occurred to me that meditation could help in such matters. So I simply sat there during my first time at karma guru, listening to the soothing voice of Sumant Kaul, and feeling a beautiful tingling sensation and light all over my body. After the 2 weeks without ice cream since my meditation (I hadn’t even thought about it), I realized that I did not have any craving for it. No urge to have it, no salivary glands activated just to think about it. It just felt so strange and so crazy. I could just simply enjoy an ice cream, like a normal person, and not feel like I needed to have another one immediately. In fact, I don’t even want to have one at all !
Today, I still don’t know why that intense craving started and lasted so long but I am grateful it vanished effortlessly rather than forcing myself everyday not to think about it, to avoid the ice-cream aisle in the supermarkets, to feel guilty each time I failed to be strong. Since then, I’ve heard the incredible healing that have happened through Karma Guru and my story is nothing in comparison. But it is there for me to know, to remember, that there is a consciousness bigger than myself and if I learn how to tap into it, if I surrender to it… what else can I solve? What else is waiting to blow my mind?”
