Meditation Tutorial

Many of my clients and students have requested a review of my unique method of learning how to meditate. I have compiled this for your use and benefit.

I. What is Meditation?

A. Meditation is a means to go within yourself
B. It is a period of contemplation, of self-examination

II. How To Meditate

A. The two most important components of meditation are:

1. Finding a relaxed position
You may need to experiment with various positions; such as lying down, sitting, on even lying on your side. Once you find the most comfortable position, stick with it.

2. Focus
Focus is simply concentrating on an object to help you filter out other thoughts or energies.

You can achieve this in two ways:

a. Focus on a candle, crystal, or bowl of water

OR

b. With your eyes closed, use your third eye to focus on an object. You could imagine a golden staircase, a ladder, a color. Use whatever helps to keep you focused.

Also, keep your palms facing upward and your feet or legs uncrossed. This is necessary because you are in a receiving mode. I always say the difference between meditation and prayer is this. When you meditate you are listening to God and when you pray you are talking to Him.

Make sure you use a room where you can be undisturbed by phones, doorbells, and people intruding on you. Remember, this is your personal relaxation time!

III. Benefits of Meditation

If you practice meditation daily, you can receive several or all of these results:

A. More relaxed
B. Inner peace
C. Reduce stress
D. Receive a heightened sense of awareness
E. Improve your intuitive/psychic abilities
F. Improve your health
G. Deal with the issues of everyday life in a more positive manner.

IV. What Not To Expect From Meditation

There is a saying: “Expect nothing and receive everything in return.”

I must include this category for many of my students have become disappointed from their meditations. Why? Because some people expect fabulous messages or instant results. For example, if you expect God to come down from a cloud with some prophetic prediction, you will be disappointed.

If you ‘go with the flow’, with no pre-conceived expectations, you will achieve much better results! And there are no instant results.

By meditating on a daily basis, over a period of time, it will come naturally to you. If your daily meditation consists of thinking about the day’s experiences, that is your meditation. If you fall asleep meditating, that is fine. If you see colors, hear sounds, or see a friend or loved one that has passed over, that’s your meditation. The less you expect, the less you judge, the less you cling to a pre-conceived experience, the further you will progress. For meditation is giving up on models and labels.

The most important piece of guidance I can give you is this:

Because daily meditation is a form of altered consciousness, you will eventually coordinate your conscious, unconscious and higher conscious mind so that it flows naturally into your waking life.

V. Other Uses of Meditation

As you become more adept and comfortable with meditating, you can ‘program” your mind to:

A. Conduct healing on someone, including you.
B. Receive an answer to an issue you are pondering on.
C. Remove old habits such as smoking, over eating.
D. Communicate with your spirit guides.

We hope and trust that by following this simple outline, you will master the art of meditation.
