Meditation, now this I can do!
Really? Can you sit still and be silent for ten or twenty minutes? Or half an hour? No squirming, your mind going ten to the dozen about what you need at the shops tomorrow or jobs you need to do around the house. For something so non exerting, non doing, non requiring it can be an interesting ‘thing’ meditation. Who would have thought such a simple act could be so complicated. And that is what meditation is all about. Removing all of those day to day bits that we function on in all our conscious doings.
It has become so engrained that we become a little lost when trying to really relax and stop the mind from its usual zoom, zoom to keep in front of all we do. For this action of meditation, we need to learn inaction, mind and body. Mind you, I believe that after much practice you and I can meditate while ‘doing’ almost anything. But please, not while driving the car or doing surgery, not in the beginning anyway.
You will eventually be able to converse with your higher self, guide or God after a little practice, and for myself I found it was unusual at first, meditating at a friend’s home, trying to understand just what I was getting with all these strange images that seemed to resolve into each other. Sometimes not really giving me any understanding that I could see was for me directly or anyone around me.
But after a while I would get the occasional ‘message’ come through. Now, for me, and I think everyone else will agree that when you see an ‘image’ or ‘photo’ it portrays a lot of information. I.e. A photo of a child smiling away happily. Now when you see this photo, in that first instance you can see, a smiling face, a sunny day, many other children in the background in sports gear, a football in the child’s hand. Now in that glance you take in a huge amount of information. A lovely sunny day happily playing football with other children. All from a tiny square image. When an image comes from meditation it does the same thing AND can add that with feelings and emotions that can come with it also. Thereby amplifying the whole instance.
Now I’m not saying that meditation is all about images as I can also just have the feelings and emotions (with no image)and I just KNOW it is referring to something in particular. Or it can be a ‘movie’ about something that will show YOU, as this is all about who you are and what spirit/higher self/God is wanting to show you, what you want to know about or understand.
For me it was while reading a story on how someone was wanting to speak with spirit/higher self/God.(I’m just going to refer to it as spirit from now on, as I personally believe they are all one, it’s like us all, we are many faceted by being human, mother/fathers, sons/daughters, workers, teachers and students, all from within the one person. As above, so below. This is about finding who you are and what you believe…your truth). Now remember this suited me perfectly for who I am. Try it and see how it feels for you. The story said that as your about to go off to sleep at night, ask spirit for you to become aware and understand anything that is for your highest good and remember it in the morning. To keep a diary next to your bed and write down anything upon waking, because if you leave this for any length of time you forget it quite fast because your connection to spirit is rapidly diminishing as you wake. The ego is awakening.
I began this to try it out and in the beginning not a lot happened or if anything came in it would be a little disjointed. So at this point I decided to refine it a little. I asked spirit to let me remember and bring me up from my sleep just enough that I could write it down and drop back into this sleep to go further or just go back to sleep. Now I will make a comment here on just what this all felt at this point. When we are actually asleep we let the ego go. The thing that gets in the way and makes mediation (initially) difficult to do. So in sleep, all that is left is my awareness (my spirit self) being lifted up from the sleep state and my higher self coming forward to pass on anything that is for my highest good. Initially, like anything else we start out with, takes time to get the feel of it, get used to it and refine what works and what doesn’t for us. After several months I found that it became easier to do, the ‘contact’ was becoming easier. And I found that it was easier to use my mobile phone’s voice recorder as while ever I wrote something in that state it was very ‘channelled’ and the next day I found it was very hard to read the writing sometimes. Recording was much easier, understandable (and sometimes not, you tend to speak very quietly, especially if your sleeping with someone and don’t wish to wake them, and it’s sometimes hard to hear on playback), and took much less time to do. Plus I could go back into the ‘contact’ space much easier. If you stay ‘awake’ too long you break the ‘contact’ and might not go back to where you previously were.
So eventually I began to receive a lot more clearer and more understandable information from spirit in such a way that I could relate it to where I was in my life and how I was dealing with things at that time (whether this was while I was asleep or now the ‘knowing’s’ that I get while awake). Now don’t misunderstand me at this point. It was not a mobile phone connection to spirit. Nor was it on tap for Lotto numbers or how to buy the million dollar mansion on the waterfront. Spirit passes on what is for your highest good, and you will know where it comes from because of that ‘truth’ and ‘love’ that it was given with. I.e. When spirit asked me three times in my sleep did I wish to be in the relationship with a lovely lady that I explained in ‘The Love’, I knew it was a truth from the heart, for my highest good and I accepted it from that place.
Mind you, I have also found that spirit has an incredible sense of humour. Now to some people that may sound a little ‘out there’ because their idea of spirit isn’t something that is full of jokes or laughter. But the reality is that spirit does do that, from a place of love, and the happiness that that gives. I in my infinite wisdom will attempt to do something, to which spirit will say no, and I will do anyway (because I’m not listening or trusting properly) to which will backfire on me, and straight away I ‘feel’ this amusement or laughter, and I know where it’s coming from (within) and I feel like an idiot. But I know it was given with great love, not an accusation in sight or any type of condemnation. It’s always about the learning, understanding and the love that it was given with. Always.
