10 Year Old Girl Speaks for First Time in One Year After Learning TM
“I taught a mother and her 10 year old daughter. The daughter hadn’t spoken since her father was killed in the war (with Azerbaijan) She had completely normal speech before. She now had insomnia, horrible dreams and hypervigilance. She would react at slightest things like someone raising their voice.
On the 2nd day in our TM class in group meditation all of a sudden I heard a little whimper of a cry. Then my 10 year old broke into a full cry. Then I started crying and the mother and the whole class of eleven new TM meditators were all crying. It was tears of joy. Thank God!! Within 2 minutes the daughter started talking for the first time in over a year!!! ”I can talk again mommy, I can talk, please hold me tight, hold me squeeze me, don’t let go I can talk!!!”
After one five to ten minute session of Transcendental Meditation that trauma was released and she could speak again!!
This went on for about 5 minutes. She knew 5 of the ladies in class and went to each one of them and said she loved them and gave them big hugs.
The best part was that she came to me last sitting up front and gave me the most wonderful blissful hug I’ve ever experienced as she said over and over in a whisper…thank you, thank you, thank you….as tears were rolling down our faces….
Then she announced to everyone that we have to finish meditating, and that’s exactly what we did.”
