Meditation is a wonderful way of clearing the mind and a chance to connect with your own divine spirit. I am not talking about God or Angels or The Universe I am talking about your own spirit. The one you were born with, the one that is with you every day of your life through good and bad.
This is often referred to as your Higher Self, this is the spirit part of yourself.
We have to remember – “We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
Once you really start to connect with that higher part of yourself you can really start to listen to what your body and mind needs you to do to become the person you are striving to be.
You will start to become aware of intuitive thoughts, ideas and feelings. Doors will start to open that you were not previously aware of and not in alignment with.
In order to become the person that our Higher Self truly longs us to be then we need to operate from a place of alignment with our soul path and purpose. Once we start working in alignment with our true calling and purpose then everything will start to fall into place.
The question is HOW?
The best way I can recommend for this is through Meditation. No you don’t have to sit with your legs crossed and chant “OM” although it may help the process if you did. You just need to find a nice comfortable and relaxing place for you to spend 5 to 10 minutes. Yes that’s right 5-10 minutes, there is no need for you to sit for hours in silent contemplation waiting for something Awesome to happen or a bolt of lightning to appear out of nowhere.
Try not to lie down because you could end up falling asleep and that kind of defeats the whole process. When you lie down your brain connects this position with sleep and that is why lots of people doze off during meditation.
You don’t need music to meditate all you need to do is sit in silence and whenever a thought comes by just let it float away and allow yourself that time to connect with the spirit part of you.
Thats it !! Tah Dah
The more you do it the more you will get used to doing and the more insightful things will come to you not just during meditation but through your every day life too.
