Meditate with Shailee 

Balance, Mind & Body & Spirit

What is meditation?

Meditation is to see the truth as it is. In my first formal meditation course in 2001, Vipassana Guru Satya Narayan Goenka shared this wisdom. It’s been almost two decades and I am still learning about the depth of this one simple sentence, to see the truth as it is.

So, how do you see the truth? One of the most highly revered teachers and scripts on the discipline, 1700 year old Patanjali’s Yog Sutra defines Yog as ‘yogascha chitti vritti nirodh’. It means when you stop the clutter in the mind, you’re in a state to see the truth. For normal mortals like me and probably you, dealing with life in today’s time, the task of stopping the clutter in the mind is easier said than done. But turns out there are tons of tools and techniques to achieve that goal. They have all been laid out in scriptures that date thousands of years. The wisdom has all been out there. Yet, life still remains a mess for most of us. Perhaps, somewhere in the process of complicating life, we started looking for miraculous cures that could take care of it all. But these techniques remain simple, even mundane. And it is only by working on them, will we be able to reach a state of mind where we can see the truth as it is. And as the Gurus would say, bliss and healing are the by-products of true meditation!

Meditation for me

To me, meditation simply means being absolutely present in the moment, unattached to any biases. For instance, when I took a major fall on a mountain, I was able to be present in that moment. That allowed me to try break my fall without letting panic override.

When I got a nasty email, my fingers raced on the keyboard with nastier reply. Then, I stopped for a moment and tried to see what was really happening if I did not subscribe to the raging anger. The next day I sent a polite response and the same person opened door to one of the biggest opportunities of my life.

In 2015 I was on a hike when a major earthquake hit Nepal. It was the ability to be present in the moment, that helped me and friends arrive to safety. I can share many small and big moments, incidents and aspects of my life where this practice of awareness has saved the day.

I use the practice of awareness for every aspect of my life, be it relationship, meetings, negotiations, healing, finances, or connecting to a deeper source. And, I am happy to share the same with you.

What People Are Saying

After a loss, I became an emotional wreck. Weeks later I was still crying in the car. That’s when I started meditation with Shailee and found a new world of colors and joy. I am headed and happy.

I was at a protest. At one point I was able to just witness my emotions. A yogic moment. Thanks to my sessions.

Pause: One Second Meditation

  One of my favorite things to do is to take a super quick pause in the middle of my busy day. Here is how it works. You could be writing an email, in the middle of a conversation, watching a movie or in the traffic. You can do it without anybody around you...

Help, I cannot focus!

  I have been doing meditation for over two decades now. I highly recommend it to everyone. But the minute I mention it, the most common response I hear is, ‘I would love to try but I just can’t focus.’ Valid enough. But here’s the thing, one needs to meditate...

Meditation: Hustle interrupted!

  Meditation for me, has been a core tool to navigate the ups and downs of every aspects of my life. It is not just something I practice cross legged for some duration in the am or pm. The real goal is for the same calm to kick in when I am taking a fatal fall on...
