Self-realisation is the first guided meditation in Sahaja Yoga. It awakens your inner energy or Kundalini. You can feel it as a hot, warm or cool breeze coming out of the palms and the top of your head.
Try the original self-realisation performed by Shri Mataji Herself in the video below:
“It is everyone’s right to achieve this state of one’s evolution and everything necessary is already inbuilt. But as I respect your freedom, you have to have the desire to achieve this state, it cannot be forced upon you!”— Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

Now, after the end of the meditation, see if you are feeling relaxed and if your thoughts have slowed down or gradually disappeared. This is the first stage of meditation – thoughtless awareness – where you are fully alert but without any thoughts, in a state of pure and peaceful consciousness. Now see if you can feel a sensation of a gentle cool breeze in your palms and above your head. It might be warm in the beginning which is a sign that your Kundalini energy is purifying your chakras, but it will eventually cool down. You can verify it by placing your left palm 6-12 cm above your head, then trying with the right palm. If you are unable to feel it, you can try the process again. Pay special attention to forgiveness.
This is the beginning of a fantastic journey into your own spiritual existence. It is a door opened to a new dimension of your awareness that you can explore. If you continue to meditate regularly, you will be able to feel your subtle centres (or chakras) on your fingertips and correct them using your spiritual energy (Kundalini).
