I would like to say that this meditation has helped me tremendously. I am a US Army Iraq War Veteran. When I first returned home from Iraq, I was dealing with lots of PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) issues and issues from my childhood all rolled into one. I was unable to drive my car anywhere. I was also very angry and judgmental and could only be friends with other veterans.

I tried getting help through the hospital and I still remember to this day the doctors told me that PTSD is not curable and I will have it for the rest of my life. I tried going to school so that I could adjust to society, but I had little luck with that. I kept dropping classes and failing the simplest of classes just due to lack of concentration.

I recently started going to film school and soon after, I was introduced to this meditation. The change that I feel is so huge that I can’t even begin to explain. I now notice a big difference in the way I interact with people. I am not angry with the whole world anymore, I like being around people and I am more outgoing than before. I am getting good grades in school, able to pay attention in class and always on time.

Thanks to this meditation, it feels like it’s the first time that I am truly starting to feel how life was supposed to be lived.
