Shri Mataji used to give me little presents sometimes. My memory is fragmentary because it’s a long, long time ago. I remember in Gower Street. My father says the older Sahaja Yogis at the time were a collection of ex-hippies and I was younger and clearer. They had had a bit of a wild time and it had left its imprint on their chakras. Shri Mataji sometimes used to use me to sort of try things out or to clear things out. She discovered the neck crick on me. This is a form of treatment which no longer exists.
Shri Mataji had me sitting down and said, “I’ve discovered this great new treatment for the Vishuddhi.” She got my head and went ‘huwhump!’ and it went ‘click!’ I was very surprised and She laughed. It worked. There was this sense that Sahaja Yoga at this time was experimental. She tried things out with people. She would get them to do things and see if it worked or not. I mean, I think it sort of goes on, on a larger scale, as well today.
