The Purpose of Meditation
The purpose of meditation is to become aware of our thoughts and choose the thoughts we want to bring into manifestations. We are talking about being conscious of our thoughts in every moment. What we are habitually thinking, which is our Subconscious thoughts, whether we are conscious of our thoughts or not, our Su
Subconscious Mind is still interfacing with Universal Mind, manifesting on our behalf.
If you are not focused and aware of your thoughts then most likely your life may not be progressing towards Oneness. The Universal Mind is constantly communicating with us, if we are not consciously aware of our thoughts, then we can not hear the guidance we are constantly receiving from Universal Mind. Some people who do listen call this being “Intuitive”, others call it being “Physic”. Regardless, disciplining our thinking prepares us for mastery of our reality.
- Select two quiet and peaceful times, preferably first thing in the morning and right before bedtime. Attempt to schedule meditating times at the same time every day.
- Choose a room or a place where you can sit comfortably.
- Sit erect with your spine as straight as it can be.
- Place your hands open and resting comfortably in your lap as if you are waiting to receive.
- Close your eyes to keep from being distracted by the outside world.
- Say the Prayer of Protection before starting your meditation.
- Imagine an object that elicits tranquility: a rising sun, a blooming rose, a gentle ocean, or maybe a colorful rainbow. Hold your chosen image as long as possible. You may start to experience things in the body or around the body, but by knowing you have said the Prayer of Protection will allow you to relax and enjoy the experience.
When you find your mind drifting to mundane thoughts, bring your attention gently back to the image that you have selected. When your mind drifts again, redirect it to the selected object. Pay no attention to your body’s attempt to distract you. Rise above your body’s attempt to provoke you to scratch, itch, or twitch. Continue to sit in meditation until your body starts to feel impossibly jittery. Don’t force anything. When the body becomes too jittery, it is time to terminate your meditation.
If, when we start to meditate, we may be able to only do it for thirty seconds, that is great; it’s a good start. Continue the process. The next time might be for two minutes; another great effort. Little by little, the time will increase as our ability to focus and concentrate increases.
We’ll be surprised how soon we progress so that the time spent in meditation will seem to be mere seconds, but in reality, it may be several minutes. We will also appreciate the feeling of restfulness and peaceful tranquility that will transpire with minimum effort.
This disciplinary act sends a message throughout our inner kingdom that our spirit is intent on taking control of its destiny.
Most individuals who intend to meditate think they have to sit there for a specific period of time; not true. Start slowly until your mind and body come into alignment with your objective.
After a few sessions, your body will behave itself. Do not allow outside noises to interfere or distract you from your selected subject. After a while, noises will not bother you; you just won’t hear them.
We are creatures of habits, both positive and negative. Developing positive habits will bring positive results. The purpose of meditating is to discipline the mind and the thought processes. By taking control of the thought process, we tell our mind that we are in charge of what comes and goes through the doorway of the mind. Soon, we will hear prompting thoughts from our guides. It is not important who they are as we are all equal regardless of what dimension we are in. Since we have free will, consider the promptings. If the promptings resonates with your feeling body then it is probably the right prompting. If it doesn’t resonate, then don’t follow the promptings. In the end, each of us is responsible for our own thoughts and actions.
By practicing disciplined thinking during a meditative state, you will find that disciplined thinking continues during your normal wakeful state of existence. Meditation is a time to discipline our mind to become aware of our thoughts and to connect with our guides. You will also find this practice is extremely beneficial during the conscious states outside meditation. You will become more aware and intuitive to the guidance of our many guardians.
