Meditation and handsome dude!

Please read part one here.

After the meltdown in our backyard, I walked inside the house with a strong urge to meditate and connect with the Divine. That was an alien and strange thought for me. The last time I meditated was when I was eight years old. I don't remember the exact year, to be honest, but it was a long time for sure.

I was surprised by my thought. I googled "meditation" (can you believe it? I had to google the word meditation! lol) and found one beautiful guided meditation by Lorie Ladd. Her contemplation differed from what I had learned at the Ramakrishna Math (Ashram).

Guess what? I sobbed the entire meditation. The process was painful, but I felt light and loved after concluding. I felt excellent. I was feeling happy. Somehow, I realized what I wanted (not crying, duh!). I just wanted to be loved. I slept well that night. The following day, I continued my research on google for meditation, spirituality, etc. One of the talk shows by Kat Fowler (I love her) mentioned writing a letter to your angels and telling them what you desire. I can find my soul mate (I thought I was missing) and find happiness; it's a win-win situation. I was desperate enough, so I thought, "what not"!

I wrote a letter

"My dear Angles
Bla Bla (much boring and non-important stuff)…
He is handsome, tall, and a happy person. He is wealthy financially and spiritually. Funny, kind, and loving. He is in my age range and with no drama in his life. He has successful children who are not dependent on him. He is a successful, wealthy businessman ready to share the experience of spirituality and inner light. He is super intelligent, well educated, well-traveled, and handsome. He takes care of his body and is in excellent shape. He enjoys traveling and exploring new things. He has no destructive addictions. He adores me very much. He loves animals. I love him. Please my angles contact his angles and tell them about me. Please arrange our meeting as he is ready too. The universe is ready; arrange our reunion here on this earth now. We both need each other to evolve to our maximum capacity together.
Thank you so much, my angles; I await your reply.
Much love, Sona

As I finished writing this letter (are you done laughing yet?), I was shocked by my thoughts. I am neither a spiritual person nor looking for any light towards the enlightenment. Why did I write this? Well, it was too late; my thoughts were already out in the universe. As long as I get that successful, handsome dude, I was ok with the arrangement.

By now, I think you all know where my life story is going…. Most of us have met this handsome dude I was describing to my angels. I wrote this letter on Oct 7, 2021, at 11:48 pm.

My mysterious man

The next day, in google search, one of the meditation videos was very interesting and informative. This monk in the video was highly charismatic, handsome, and had a bright aura. I watched that video, then I continued with another video… and it went on for more than 4–5 hours. I couldn't stop. His name was Om Swami. Who is this, Swami? How come his name is just Om? Why is it not Swami Om, like Swami Vivekananda? I was confused about his name but was very clear about the message he was giving. I liked what he was saying, his voice, knowledge, and looks (come on, whom I am kidding!). Om Swami was looking very handsome.

I started watching his YouTube channel. I couldn't stop. One week went by, and on the 13th of October, I watched the most beautiful and divine video of Om Swami, "Vision of the Goddess." I was thoroughly inspired; I started meditating three times a day. I downloaded the Black Lotus app, and before I knew it, I became a member of Somehow, I knew Om Swami was no stranger to me in my heart, but how is that possible?

I ordered his book "If Truth Be Told: A Monk's Memoir" from Amazon on the 21st of October. I thought it might take three/four days to come. But the book was at my doorstep early the next morning. The book says it was published in Coppell, TX, which is 20 minutes from my home. It was in the puzzle, and I couldn't solve it to the day.

I had forgotten about "the letter" to my angles by this time.

Now, I was in a role… I had to get to know Om Swami and his teachings to the core. Now he was no more just a handsome dude for me. He was the one I was waiting for; I knew him in this life and beyond. There was nothing but immense respect for him in my heart. That same week with all my heart, I wrote "What do I want" in my notes (sent it out in the universe):

1. Visit Om Swami

2. Receive Diksha from Om Swami

3. Om Swami is my Guru, and he has accepted me

4. Focus on Meditation and Sadhana next two years……
