How to Meditate

 Some friends and co-workers have asked me how I meditate.  There’s no set way.  It’s not a matter of what’s right or wrong…  It is finding what resonates with you.  It’s not complex, but it takes time to master.  It’s like learning to drive a car.  At the beginning you are nervous and may make a few mistakes, but with practice your skills improve….  Same goes for meditation.  If you do not practice it daily you will never gain access to your divine light…   

The purpose of meditation is to quiet the mind.  In prayer you are asking and in meditation you are receiving.  Ask and you shall find…  With meditation we become more intuitive.  It all depends on what you want to accomplish and how far you want to run with it…  It also has to be done daily; otherwise, it will not work.  All it takes is five minutes.  It is a discipline and if you are not use to it, you need to begin with baby steps.  There’s not one set of rules that works better than another.  There’s many ways to get results. 

I usually begin with trying to center myself by using the chakras.  These are center points throughout the body, but the most important are seven.  I’ve attached a chart which explains the seven chakras. I visualize a flower opening for each chakra and I use the color it represents to fill my entire being with that color. I start at the base and move up to the crown.  By the time I get to the 3rd or 4th chakra, I’m already in a semi trance.  As I go in and out of consciousness, I continue working with the chakra I left off with until I finish the last one.   This is one way of quieting the mind. 

You can also use music to relax. Sit in a comfortable position in a quiet spot and turn off the phone. 

 I particularly enjoy Tom Kenyon’s meditations.  His web site is:

He has one meditation that’s five minutes long (Aethos sound meditation) which help raise your awareness and heighten your vibrations.  You can download the meditations for free or order his Cd’s.  Meditation is a discipline; therefore, using a shorter length meditation will work better at the beginning rather than trying a long one.  For the first few times you want to keep it as simple as possible.  While meditating, your mind will wonder.  That’s ok…  Let the thoughts come through.  Don’t fight it and then go right back to focusing on the music or your breath.  Try whatever works best for you.  It is difficult to quiet the mind since we’re always thinking, but with practice and patience it can be done.  You will start to enjoy those quiet relaxing moments more and more and will begin to appreciate all you have.  I also keep that type of music on at work and it helps me relax and stay focused.  I benefit from the feelings it invokes. 

This is very short version/explanation on meditation.  If you have questions or concerns please feel free to ask me and I will try to direct you in your quest…

Let go of mind and let spirit be your guide… 

Good luck and blessings….
