    Harshada, your words are so on point. I'm so inspired by your simplistic approach to this meditation.
    For the idealistic future, I felt intensity in my throat chakra (might be due to the fact that I envisioned myself talking before large crowds) & for the dark future, my 3rd chakra was awakened.
    I love the thought of being naive, unprepared with no anticipatory thoughts. Sending you gratitude for a lighter day.

    Interesting, the positive future portion was great and the black future portion made me sick to my stomach. I couldn't get back out of feeling sick. Even tried laying down during the last part of this and continued to feel overwhelmingly rotten inside. Negative thoughts seem pretty destructive.

    Thank you for the many meditations that are assisting me in a healing journey. I have gained much insight, inspiration and internal strength and focus. I will certainly keep coming back for more. Please consider offering an extended meditation on letting go of control. Thank you, Peace....

    Thank you for this grounding meditation. Your words are so helpful to me.
  • Maurey Lancaster     Sep 4th, 2012
    Thanks again for this. I was on summer holiday and couldn't do your meditations- I missed them! Glad to be back on Yogaglo. X
  • John John     Aug 21st, 2012
    I have a great life that, yes, I could not have imagined. Not worrying about the future is the release of a huge burden and I'm feeling pretty good about now.
  • Joanne Whitford     Jul 10th, 2012
    That was the coolest! Be here NOW!
  • Amanda Wilder     Jul 1st, 2012
    Thank you. The brief imagery of pulling the "but what about this" future thoughts back into the the present moment resonated with my mind. I can imagine physically pulling my future thoughts softly back to this now, this breath.
  • Wayne Levine     Jun 30th, 2012
    So difficult to willingly embrace the darkness, though my mind is a frequent guest there. My first meditation with you. Thank you so much. I look forward to the journey with you.
  • Maurey Lancaster     Jun 26th, 2012
    I revisited this tonight. Very helpful. And so insightful x
  • Natasha Rainger     Jun 24th, 2012
    thankyou, this really helps the moment become clear, so that im not so focused on next week or next year.. this moment had many answers!
  • Jodie Larson     Jun 24th, 2012
    Helps me detach from fear and anxiety. Nice!
  • Andry Sophocleous     Jun 13th, 2012
    What a great way to begin the day. Thank you so mich Harshada!
  • Elizabeth Lawler     Jun 12th, 2012
    This was a really great way to start my day, thank you!
  • Kath Sanders     Jun 5th, 2012
    This was very helpful - Staying focused on the moment is something I want to work on.

    I am a notoriously obsessive thinker and have extreme anxiety issues so I chose this video. At first I didn't understand all of the forward, future thinking good and resisted thinking about the bad (as I am now in a very bad, seemingly endless place) but then I just let myself go with it. I'm a Believer and strong lover of prayer so it was interesting, in the final phase, just to focus on my breathing, body position, and thoughts of Jesus right beside me; the Holy Spirit within me at that very moment. My prayers felt present and not jumbled and bouncing as they so often are. I love how you finished this video, Harshada, so that we could so easily continue in that state for as long as we wished. You didn't "end it" or cut us off. Thank you. God's blessings to you and I pray that Jesus invades your teachings and personal practices.
  • Jay Wehmeier     Jun 3rd, 2012
    Harshada, with this technology it was nice to use/do your meditation a second time. I think it helped me to answer (in part) my own question. And of course you are right. J. W.
  • Kim Thomas     May 31st, 2012
    I know we have never met, but I consider you a dear friend. Thank you.
  • malika burman     May 28th, 2012
    This was a profound experience for me, thankyou.
  • Jay Wehmeier     May 22nd, 2012
    Your mediation brought me thru the good, the bad and back to the present. But what do learned yogies (sp?) say about the future? Do we ever even getthere? Why do many meditations focus on the present anyway? Thank you for the lesson. Jay W.
  • Maurey Lancaster     May 17th, 2012
    Great, as always. Is it okay to listen to these lying down occasionally? I didn't fall asleep but I was a bit tired so I laid down on my mat to listen. Hope that's okay x
  • Heather Heather     May 17th, 2012
    Perfect timing! Stressing about a move....helped with the anxiety about the future. Thnx
  • Angela Slagle     May 15th, 2012
    I felt a lot better after this meditation. It made me calmer as I anticipate a letter that may change my future. Thank you!
  • Deborah Moulton     May 14th, 2012
    Hi Harshada, I enjoyed this meditation - good length as it brought up a range of emotions - joy and fear. I enjoyed 'imagining' a positive future and it was also important to bring to the fore, the fears. I realize that we really don't know, but what is important is knowing we will manage it at the time ( that is my 'security' complex coming through!!!). A challenge is how do you 'live in the moment' yet be responsible to plan ahead for yourself??
  • Dorothy Dawn     May 14th, 2012
    Wow! I like the way my mind feels when I envision my future fantasies in a positive way! TY! XOXO
  • Patricia Maccaro     May 14th, 2012
    What a precious gift this meditation is.
    Thank you Daddy Harshada, I loved and
    needed this today.
