Life is an experience and journey, not a destination. In order to be totally at peace and living in bliss, one must live in the present moment. Stop what you are doing now. What do you smell? What do you hear? What colors are the lights around you? How are you breathing? Can you feel your heart beating? Are your toes cold or hot? Be in the moment.
There are many books that teach meditation. But one thing most books fail to teach is that meditation is a personal experience. One must visualize a scene, place, object or thing that makes them most at peace and feeling in total bliss. Hold on to that visual, and now take slow breathes in and out evenly through the nose. What are you smelling in that perfect scene? What are you hearing in that perfect scene? What are feeling on your skin from that perfect scene? Be in the moment of that scene.
Meditation is about practice and habit. If you want to run a marathon, you have to be diligent and work your body out everyday in a specific pattern. The same goes for meditation. Try 5 minutes your first few days. Another exercise that a spiritual mentor once taught me was to focus on a flame of a free-standing candle. Every time a thought comes into mind, dispense it by refocusing on the colors of the flame – the beauty of the flame and its aura. You will know when you are ready to go a step further into meditation without the use of the candle. No time limit can be put on you. Remember its exercise. Your body and mind will let you know.
Another key element of meditation is to allow yourself to change your perception of time. Honestly, there is no such thing as time if you really think about. Time is solely based on the universes planetary rotations around major energy forces. Throw out resolutions out the window. Start today on improving your spirits. Start slow if you have to. You can not do a crash course on spiritual awakening. You can not force your awakening either. When humans are children, some children develop faster than others but in the end we all reach a common place for the most part. Embrace that journey of learning and experiencing the moments. All those past moments happen to develop us for our life’s long purpose.
I apologise to my readers for not writing in a long time. I have overcome some health issues. And at a later date I will share my story and experience of my illness and how I found a way to recover. I am sure my story will be able to heal thousands of woman across the country.
