    She was pretty much hugging round the clock.

    The doors opened at 8.00am, I arrived at 6.30pm and had my hug at approximately 1.30am ... with still a couple of hundred people to go.

    She's doing it again today too.

    From Wikipedia:
    Amṛtānandamayī herself says, "karma [action], j˝ana [knowledge] and bhakti [devotion] are all essential. If the two wings of a bird are devotion and action, knowledge is its tail. Only with the help of all three can the bird soar into the heights."

    Well the energy was electric in there - you could really feel the atmosphere.

    The hug was over very quickly, and she gave me a rose petal and a boiled sweet (like I'd just had an injection haha).

    The next day was weird, like I was overcome with emotion and releasing some hidden grief that I didn't realise I was carrying.

    It's all good though, and I'll probably go again the next time she's here.

    What a beautiful and intense experience. You obviously had some stuff that needed releasing. I'm sure you'll feel much lighter now.
