    Whenever i recite waheguru simran, i start feeling freshness or calmness at the bottom end of my tongue, basically where the neck starts. Why?

    Are you in the habit of eating a mint before you start chanting?

    Does this only happen when you recite Waheguru or also when your reciting some other words and are you breathing differently when your doing simran?

    Can you describe this freshness in more detail?

    And like mentioned do you get the same sensation when you recite any other words?

    sometimes during Simran you can feel pressure / cool sensations at the top of your head, in between your eyebrows, throat etc...it varies for everyone.

    i do a lot of Tai chi, and during my tai chi form i feel coolness and other sensations in my palms and base of my feet and top of my head. It could be movement of energy...

    This sensation comes after 15-20 mins. Accompanied by a slight feeling a happiness and stress free state.Also, more saliva starts producing in mouth. I am not able to do simran for long periods of time.But I am curious where I go from here.

    mushrooms, try mushrooms for that really good high feeling, unfortunately, there is slightly more to Sikhism than tripping the light fantastic...

    Dear Brother,

    Please listen to Guru's Shabad with full attention, as nothing else will avail you in the end time. Only Guru's shabad will go with you, and none of these other tricks or tastes are of any use. Please consider this shabad thoughtfully, from anand Sahib. Guru Sahib says:

    ey rsnw qU An ris rwic rhI qyrI ipAws n jwie ]
    ay rasnaa too an ras raach rahee tayree pi-aas na jaa-ay.
    O my tongue, you are engrossed in other tastes, but your thirsty desire is not quenched.

    ipAws n jwie horqu ikqY ijcru hir rsu plY n pwie ]
    pi-aas na jaa-ay horat kitai jichar har ras palai na paa-ay.
    Your thirst shall not be quenched by any means, until you attain the subtle essence of the Lord.

    hir rsu pwie plY pIAY hir rsu bhuiV n iqRsnw lwgY Awie ]
    har ras paa-ay palai pee-ai har ras bahurh na tarisnaa laagai aa-ay.
    If you do obtain the subtle essence of the Lord, and drink in this essence of the Lord, you shall not be troubled by desire again.

    eyhu hir rsu krmI pweIAY siqguru imlY ijsu Awie ]
    ayhu har ras karmee paa-ee-ai satgur milai jis aa-ay.
    This subtle essence of the Lord is obtained by good karma, when one comes to meet with the True Guru.

    khY nwnku hoir An rs siB vIsry jw hir vsY min Awie ]32]
    kahai naanak hor an ras sabh veesray jaa har vasai man aa-ay. ||32||
    Says Nanak, all other tastes and essences are forgotten, when the Lord comes to dwell within the mind. ||32||

    Keep doing your Simran for as long as you're able to....and you will slowly find it easier to enjoy it for longer.

    try verbal simran for a while (speaking and then concentrated listening) and if the saliva problem arises, then maybe try keeping your tongue touching the top of your mouth and doing silent simran in your mind instead

    When you take this journey seriously...the world will mock you, laugh at you...sometimes your friends and family will think you're crazy

    but none of that matters for one day you will ride a long the shabad within you, taking you closer and closer to self and God realization within you also.

    believe in it, make the effort to go within and then bathe in it's glory. I am only skimming the surface as of yet but i tell you your view/understanding of life/creation will never be the same again.

    I very much recommend you to watch some of the videos on
    www.mysimran.info

    They have some pretty amazing, clearly explained videos of doing simran, their explanations will help ease your minds questions so that you can focus on your simran.

    God Bless ji
