In a thought-provoking interview on Finding the Unicorn in You, Meera Ishaya recounts her transformation from a graphic designer to an Ishaya monk dedicated to inner peace. Though faced with illness and adversity, Meera persevered to find her calling.
Discovering a New Path
Plagued by chronic health issues, Meera felt there had to be more to life than stress and suffering. Her search for answers led her to the Ishaya tradition of Ascension meditation. Meera found her spiritual home among the accepting, quirky community of the Bright Path ashram.
The Modern Monk
Contrary to the solitary image of traditional monks, Meera lives an active life as a wife, mother, and author. Ishaya monks seek to embody qualities like peace, clarity, freedom, and kindness in the modern world. Their practical techniques train the mind to reach pure awareness beyond thoughts.
Even after becoming a monk, Meera faced traumatic challenges like a violent attack. She stresses the importance of asking for help, finding your support tribe, and using difficulties as growth. Meera forgave her attacker and transformed the relationship.
Meera advises seeking validation and love from within, not external sources. Connecting to one's essence allows outer experiences of rejection to become redirection. She urges being open and willing to reinvent oneself.
The Unicorn Path
Meera Ishaya exemplifies the unicorn spirit of evolving fearlessly, sharing wisdom generously, and illuminating one's unique gifts. She found fulfillment in helping others ascend to higher consciousness.
The central takeaway from Meera's profound journey is that inner peace allows us to handle adversity and express our authentic selves. Meditation and self-discovery enable unicorns to overcome suffering and spread light.
