Influence of powerful experiences on our day

If you participated in the Shivratri observance last night (or if you have attended any session where there is continuous chanting) you will notice something special about the mind the next day. You may find yourself humming your favorite chant during the day without consciously thinking about it and it will bring you back to the enjoyment of the experience and no doubt putting a smile on your face. 🙂

What’s this about? When we invest powerful emotions in an experience it leaves a strong impact on the mind and that influences the way we experience our day. This holds true whether the experience is positive or negative. We need to be careful about things we dislike, to take care not to invest a lot of energy in them, not allow them to take root in our minds.

Lets keep the experience of Shivratri alive in our hearts and minds. Dhimika dhimika dhim nache bhole nath!

    Namaskar Madhavi,

    Yesterday morning I listened half an hour to the Shivratri and the rest of the day a chant stuck with me and it’s the one you just posted. 🙂 Thank you, I’ll be relistening and re-experience it today.

    All my love, Henk

    Namaskar, Madhavi. Your post made me reflect on my Shivratri experience three years ago. One of the things I remember most clearly is the feeling of exaltation that was with me afterward. With no conscious effort on my part (and having had little previous experience with chanting or meditation) I was infused with a powerful feeling of bliss and peacefulness for the whole following day.
