Through years of sadhana, Megha Bajaj finds herself encircled by a ‘spiritual fence’—a highly potent positive energy which perpetually protects her
I have observed a strange pattern in my life. Ever since I was an adolescent and have wanted to do something ‘wrong’—something that seemed against my value system—there was something to stop me. Or someone would suddenly show up and admonish me. Or situations would play themselves out in such a way that, try as I might, I wouldn’t be able to indulge.
I remember one of those occasions at the threshold of my teens, where everyone my age was experimenting with their first few sips of alcohol or drags of cigarettes. I was out on a trip with my family, and my elder cousins took me along with them for a ‘private chat.’ Little did I know that this was a code word for smoking, and my cousin, about eight years older than me, said to me, “Try it! Everyone does. It’s like a kick; you just need to get it out of your system by doing it once.” I so admired this cousin. And yet, as I looked at that little white and brown stub, something within said, “No, this is not for me.” However, I didn’t have the courage to say it aloud. Wondering how to get out of the situation, I just sent out a quiet prayer. Out of nowhere, a few wild dogs started barking and advancing towards us, and we all had to move back home where none of them got a chance to offer it to me again.
Like this, so often, I can remember being on the brink of doing something which would have left me feeling guilty or unhappy and somehow being saved in the nick of time.
I used to wonder what this invisible boundary around me was. It seemed like certain things just couldn’t get past it, regardless of whether it was someone else trying it or even me, myself. It was almost like my personal ‘Lakshman Rekha’ or protective boundary, keeping me safe. I would slip but never fall hard enough to not be able to get back on my feet.
It was only when I went for my first spiritual retreat with my beloved guru did I understand what this was. It was, as He so beautifully explained, a ‘spiritual fence.’ Since meditation had enticed me from a very young age, as had love, God, and faith, some kind of energy had accumulated around me, which acted as a fence. This allowed all the good to get in and magnify but kept the bad out.
My guru explained that one of the most wonderful aspects of being a seeker and having a living master was the ability to constantly find oneself inside a spiritual fence. This accumulation of extremely potent positive energy protects one from most malicious attacks—on the tangible as well as intangible fronts.
Meditation has innumerable benefits, and I wish every person would choose it at the youngest age possible as it becomes the North Star of our lives. However, a benefit I didn’t know of—and one that was so powerful—was this spiritual fence.
Who doesn’t like the feeling of being protected? With this fence itself, we have to go through a journey which is adventurous enough. So then, why would we venture out without it? What a feeling of deep protective love it is to know that wherever you go, whatever you do, there is something protecting you and that this protection can be found through the regular sadhana of meditation and through surrender to a guru!
This spiritual fence has been taking care of me for years. I feel safe. Secure. Like a little one in the womb. It’s a feeling I wouldn’t trade off for anything in the world.
