Shaktipat Master Steven Sadleir guides you through this meditation. He shows you how to tap into the your own life-force, called Shakti.
Sink into a bubbling jacuzzi of consciousness. Feel your mind relax and all your thoughts floating out of your head like butterflies.
For the first few minutes Steven guides you into a more relaxed state. Here you can can more easily let go of thoughts that may be troubling you. This process also creates a sacred space for the meditation itself.
By bringing your focus to the 3rd-eye (the point between the eyebrows) you are taken into a very deep meditation.
From this deep state of awareness you are given the transmission of life-force energy — a process called Shaktipat. You can feel energy flowing through your hands into your body.
For some this can be very blissful, for others it is more subtle. Shaktipat often creates as a physical sensation and there may be visual phenomena, such as flashes of light. Most find the experience deepens with time and regular practice.
A powerful meditation not intended for casual use. You should put time aside and find a place to meditate where you will not be disturbed for the 30 minutes duration.

Shaktipat is a Sanskrit word for the transfer of spiritual energy from a spiritually enlightened master to a disciple or student. Shaktipat can be transmitted through a sacred word or mantra, a look, a thought or by touch. It can also be transmitted at a distance through an object such as a flower or fruit, or via telephone or letter.
Shaktipat Meditation is available to download as the 30 Minute Guided Shaktipat Meditation from the Self Awareness Institute.
