Meditation is part of my daily morning and evening practice. I listen for guidance on what is needed from my Inner Wisdom to release a fear or worry, or to heal a situation. As I wait, I am still and quiet.
There are times that I ask for energies that have already served their purpose to flow into the candlelight, as the representation of Unconditional Love, that I have in front of me. When that happens, I feel the energy release, and feel a sense of relief. Many times thoughts of thanksgiving and love for the situation fill my mind. During meditation, I may also receive insight on how to handle a situation. That is so comforting to me because I can relax into that knowing I am safe and secure. All is well, no matter what is going on outwardly.
Active meditation with mantra and movement is also needed sometimes. If that is the case, I may follow a recording, attend a meditation class to participate in a group session, or repeat a meditation I completed in the past. In my practice of Kundalini yoga, there are so many great meditations. They can be challenging because you may be required to hold a hand position for a set number of minutes, while repeating a mantra, but it is always extremely rewarding and strengthening.
I’m often asked how do I make my mind quiet. I learned that acknowledging the thought and releasing it, is much better than trying to ignore it and force it out. It’s trying to get your attention, and like a small child, the more you ignore it, the louder it gets. And in this time of transition, so many thoughts are coming to the surface for healing and clearing, I feel releasing it into the light is a better option. Offering love, forgiveness, and gratitude is the key during my meditation practice.
