Learn SOS Meditation

Welcome! We’re glad you’re here.

Are you feeling stressed and overwhelmed by all that is around you? The good news is you’re not alone.

Many of us go about each day feeling stressed, hurt, lonely, lost, or unfulfilled. Many are looking for meaning in life and asking the deeper questions: is there more to this human existence? Others are looking for a sense of belonging to something bigger than themselves. At work, at home, on our way to work, on our way back home, we are struggling to stay calm, positive and peaceful. So, is there hope for us? The even-better news is: yes, there is!

 

Enter Meditation

Enter, Meditation.

Yes, the buzz about meditation is true. Although it’s a trending topic these days, meditation is an ancient practice only now becoming widely popular. It has been proven to relieve stress, reduce blood pressure, enhance our concentration, make us feel calm, joyful, and uplifted. But these are just the byproducts of true meditation; there is much more to meditation than meets the eye. 

Why Meditate?

Why Meditate?

The real reason to meditate is, in fact, a spiritual one: to become spiritually aware. Once we become aware of our spiritual nature, everything else in life falls into place.

So, what is it about meditation that makes it a solution to many ailments in modern-day society?

We Are All Searching for Love

We are all searching for love

To understand this, we need to better understand the root cause of many of our ailments. Why do we feel lost, unhappy, lonely, ungrounded, unfulfilled or hurt? Perhaps we are seeking connection in our lives, or are in need of healing; perhaps we don’t feel safe and secure, or we don’t feel fulfilled with what life has to offer. Perhaps we see life’s glass as half empty. Regardless of the reasons, all these ailments have an underlying reality: they arise from our innate nature as humans to love and be loved. We seek love from the moment we are born, for it is our true essence.

Put simply, meditation is the means by which we experience the love, peace, and stillness that is within us. It unlocks the gates to the reservoir of untapped love that we carry with us.

What is SOS Meditation?

What is SOS Meditation?

SOS Meditation is the process by which we take our attention away from the world outside and focus it within ourselves. In doing so, we defocus from the turmoil of our surroundings and connect with the source of all love and all joy, which is God. SOS Meditation is about experiencing God’s love for ourselves.

SOS Meditation is taught as a science that anyone can practice, no matter their age, faith, or beliefs. Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj talks about the relationship between Science and Spirituality.

Spiritual Awakening through SOS Meditation

Spiritual Awakening through SOS Meditation

Through the practice of SOS Meditation, we embark on a spiritual adventure that helps us realize our purpose for being alive. We come to realize we are much more than our bodies and our emotions. We become aware of our true identity as spirit or soul. We realize our soul is having a human experience in this world. When this happens, our understanding of life shifts. We begin to see there is a deeper meaning to life; we begin to live with intention so that we make every moment count. Suddenly, the ups and downs of life, the disappointments, the minor disagreements, all begin to fade into the background, and joy, happiness and fulfillment become the narrative of our life.

Healing and Transformation through SOS Meditation

When we connect with God, we become filled with God’s love. We are nourished in ways we never could have imagined. We are uplifted and elevated. This love changes our perspective of life and the world around us; it transforms and ultimately heals us. Read more about the Healing Power of Meditation by Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj.

As we awaken spiritually, we become more conscious of ourselves and of the world around us. We see our interconnectedness with all living forms. We become more loving, more compassionate, more tolerant, and more understanding. With a new perspective on life, we begin to enjoy our time here on earth. Having tapped into the reservoir of God’s love, we spread the fragrance of this love to all. Through meditation, we become transformed into beacons of love and light in this world.

SOS Meditation Technique

Preparing for SOS Meditation:

SOS Meditation does not require any difficult postures. The technique involves sitting in a pose most comfortable, one in which you can sit the longest without moving, and that is not conducive to falling asleep. Any movement keeps the attention on the body. No part of the body should be touching anyone, since if one moves, it will disturb the other.

SOS Meditation Instructions:

Close your eyes
Close your eyes very gently, in a relaxed way, as you do when we go to sleep.
Our attention should be fully alert
Our attention should be fully alert. We should not put any strain on our eyes or try to look up.
Focus your eyes
Focus your eyes about eight to ten inches into the field of darkness in front of you on the horizontal plane. Gaze into the middle of whatever is in front of you.
Mentally repeat a calming word
Mentally repeat a calming word
Sit lovingly
Sit lovingly and calmly to see what comes up, as if you were watching a movie screen and waiting to see what appears on it.

Learn from a Spiritual Master

If you’ve ever tried to learn a new skill on your own, you would quickly realize that mastery of the skill requires learning from an adept who has mastered the subject. Be it Organic Chemistry, learning to ride a bike, learning a new art form or a new language – the key is the same: mastery requires learning from an expert.

Meditation, a science in itself, is no different. Though the theory of meditation can be gleaned from a book, meditation is a practical experience. Progress and success in this practice mandates the need for a teacher, an adept, who has already achieved the goal of meditation and who can guide us through the process by showing us how to concentrate our attention at the seat of our soul. Just as a Chemistry teacher can help us decipher the observations we make in a Chemistry lab, so too can a spiritual adept help us understand and navigate the various stages of our spiritual growth. One who has mastered the subject of spirituality, is addressed not just as a teacher, or a guide, but as a spiritual Master.

Having once been a student themselves, a spiritual Master is keenly aware of the intricacies and challenges that lay before the practitioner. With empathy and compassion, they guide the student step by step through the spiritual journey, while also helping the student overcome the challenges of daily life

7 Steps to Establish a Daily SOS Meditation Practice

Are you new to the SOS meditation technique or interested in strengthening your meditation practice? Here are some steps you can follow to establish a daily meditation practice:

Create the space
Find a place in your home that you can dedicate to your meditation practice. It does not have to be fancy. Just a quiet spot, away from any disturbance, where you can relax and retreat from the world. Set a chair, cushion or whatever else you may need to relax your body and be comfortable. Once you’ve set up the space, resolve to dedicate this space for your spiritual practices. When you do so, the space will become a constant reminder of the commitment you’ve made to yourself.
Find the optimal time
Anytime during the day is a good time to meditate, however, it is best to find a time when you are wide awake and when you are least likely to be distracted. Feel free to experiment in the beginning. Try out different hours of the day and see what works for you. When are you the most awake? When are you able to focus the best? When do you have the least mental wrangling? Give yourself a week or two to settle on the right time. Once you have settled on the optimal time that works for you, stick to it.
Take small steps
Start with a short sitting of 10 minutes in the beginning. Slowly, add 5-minute increments to your time. Take it slow. It is more important in the beginning to get your mind in the habit of sitting at the same time each day, than to force yourself to sit for a long period of time.
Keep a journal of your progress
Record the time you devote to your practice; your experiences in meditation; any difficulties and challenges; mini-goals you give yourself; or milestones that you achieve.
Schedule your meditation practice
If it’s not on your list of to-do’s, chances are you won’t get to it. So get ahead of yourself and schedule in time for meditation every day.
Find a meditation buddy
Notice how having an exercise buddy helps you get to the gym every week? Try the same with meditation. Remember – meditation is an individual activity – however, having a buddy who starts the journey with you can help keep you motivated and will help reinforce your own personal commitment to the practice.
Celebrate Progress
Celebrate your successes along the way. Be grateful for the opportunity to connect with God’s love.

Helping Factors in Meditation

Be regular in your practice
Whatever time of the day that you pick, try sitting at the same time every day. When you do so, you develop a habit. It’s similar to the other routines you’ve developed such as brushing your teeth soon after you wake or your bedtime routine.
Learn to focus on one thing at a time
With the hectic pace of life today, it is not uncommon to be multitasking throughout the day. Attempting to do multiple tasks simultaneously impairs our ability to focus on any one task completely. Research shows that it reduces neuronal activity in regions of the brain that are important for attention and concentration. This means that when you sit down to meditate, it is harder to concentrate. When you learn to do one thing at a time during the day, you boost your ability to focus better, and then bring this enhanced concentration into your meditations.
Be aware of yourself throughout the day
Your interactions during the day leave imprints that impact your meditations. When you have a good day where your interactions are peaceful and happy, it is easier to still your mind when you sit to meditate. However, it might be harder to focus in meditation when you’ve had a tough day at work and are angry at your coworkers or family members. When you are more peaceful and loving in your interactions with everyone, there will be less turmoil in life, and this will help as you sit to meditate.
Develop passion and zeal
Ask any gold medalist what their secret to success is, and they will tell you they love what they do. Experts in any field exhibit an unparalleled level of passion for their art. Meditation is no different. Sit to meditate with an earnest desire to grow spiritually and to experience God’s love. This sincere intention will go a long way.
Persevere
Meditation is a journey; not a destination. There will be ups and downs along the way. On some days, stilling the mind will come easy, while on other days, you’ll struggle to still the body. Be steadfast and forgiving, and keep moving steadily toward your goal.

Testimonials

I “lucked into” learning about this type of meditation and I’m so glad I did. One day I tagged along with a friend to a meeting, not knowing that it would include a short SOS meditation session. From that little start, I explored it more. I find it changes my whole day when I meditate in the morning, and if I meditate before sleep I wake up feeling lighter and more refreshed. I’m still a beginner but I love it!

Jane D

Practicing meditation saves my life. I am a Silver Star, Purple Heart Vietnam Veteran suffering Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The calming word I use in meditation I also use to help me sleep peaceful, overcome anger and transcend daily stressors. What a gift.

Malik H

Meditation has had a tremendous benefit in the quality of my life. I work in a very stressful occupation that requires an ability to be mentally nimble and responsively creative. There is no doubt the meditation has been the key to my productivity and ultimately my enjoyment of life despite the daily challenges that present themselves.

Ajili H

SOS meditation has been my go-to coping mechanism. And even though I’m not particularly adept or anything, it has really helped me through some difficult and painful times.

How to Attain Spiritual Consciousness

The ocean of spiritual consciousness is an ocean of love. It is hard for us to understand this, because we as human beings think of love in a limited and narrow sense. The love we think of as love is but a reflection of a much higher love, a divine love. It is an all-embracing, fulfilling, satisfying love that pulls close to its heart all that exists.
