“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” Psalm 23:4
The key to meditation is not to do it to always seek but to also be still—and receive. Meditation can guide us back to living our righteous self. Listen to your thoughts, and began to clear them away by unthinking them. Your lowest thought will bombard its way into every session for a while, and at the same time, your ego will work your mind with guilt, fear, shame and such. You may even find that you can’t sit through it the first few times. I encourage you to not quit.
“May my meditation be pleasing to him, as I rejoice in the LORD” Psalm 104:34
No one picks up meditation easily. It’s a process, and it begins with clearing away low vibrational thoughts. We don’t just close our eyes and the Light is right there—if only it was that easy, but we seriously have some ills to clear. I recall when I first sat for a session; I cried like a baby. I was experiencing too much different feelings–difficult feelings. I avoided meditation after that—for a while. I didn’t want to feel those feelings that came up. Many people find ease addressing others issues, but when it comes to their Self, they become uncomfortable. The realm of meditation is different for everyone though.
But of course, in order to BE who we truly are, we have to unBE who we are not. Thus, meditation is the experience of clearing our minds and our hearts, so God (super conscious) can be accessed, and realized and actualized in our highest expression of ourselves, and BE. In the darkness (fear) 3D, we experience all the negatives we created, overcome them in the void (truth) 4D, and then come into the light (love)5D. There are 12 realms but I’m speaking on what I’ve experienced. In wake and sleep state.
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9
I never got into the whole fold my body type of meditation, it never worked for me. Different techniques work for those who choose to embark; some of us travel by train, some by car, and some by the bus; but we get there. I just used the environment around me, at first. I observed everything that I no longer wanted to think, say or do. I saw the effects it had on others and understood that through them, I was able to realize the effects that those lower energies were causing mySelf. I was not being my better or highest manifest that God had intended for me. It was a process. I still had to sit with myself though and take responsibility for my share of negatives caused on myself and others. That was the painful part, going inside myself. Because whatever “evils” or negatives I had manifested, came back to me. This was no stop and go process either; I had to take it on, acknowledge my responsibility or part in it, bless it, embrace it and transform it to unto my lightness. Habits die hard, but they do die. It was like detoxing off the world.
I asked my guides if it was another way without feeling all the “bad” emotions and pain. No. No there isn’t. What we sow in the universe, we must reap. It only makes sense. If we don’t want to experience “bad things” then we can make choices that create positive thoughts, words, and actions. Of course we “learn” this lesson most often after we’ve suffered ourSelves the consequences of past negatives and fear-based creations. We cannot commune with God clothed in the will of the world.
In my experience, I learned meditation is one of the keys to the kingdom of God; ONE KEY. And it is a necessary key, used not only to access our darkest beings to overcome them, but we can also communicate two-way, with our highest self and receive more keys; bringing us closer to the kingdom of God. Some of you describe the whole experience as being “saved” or “born again”. The act of being saved is to “go into the closet”, and pray unto your heart’s desire to come into commune with Christ. Jesus the man does not sit in your body. After you’ve confessed to your “sins” in earnest, and truly desire with all your heart to know God, Christ (love) comes into your heart and takes charge of your BEing. Thus your heart has been transformed, like Jesus’s, and so through your heart, which is the first organ formed after conception, you are born again.
“For even to this were you called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow his steps.” 1 Peter 2:21
We experienced what we are not and now we know what we are. We ask for forgiveness and we can still now follow Jesus’s way.
“But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” Matthew 6:6
Make time to spend with yourself. Eventually, I did find myself alone—a lot. I went through a hell of a process—literally. It lasted about a week (I learned that it’s different for everyone). It turned out that I had judged myself far worse than I really was being, and so did other people. I harp on the fact that only God judges all men fairly. Nowadays, it’s not so much that I go meditate—meditation also comes to me. Also, I use discernment and fore-thought I can say, on a constant basis. In other words, I know before I do something, whether I’m going to feel bad or suffer for it afterward. If I stood around judging myself based on societal standards, I would still be lost. Society will and do falsely accuse and do falsely judge; causing unnecessary turmoil among ourSelves as a human race.
Nowadays, God and I have conversations like any two people. Sometimes it can get pretty emotional, especially in reflective moments, but it’s not all washing and cleansing. I get plenty grace, mercy and blessings and joy as well. My spirit simply delights in God’s being! I can literally feel God wash over me, and even in the words I write; I just be sitting there smiling and loving me some God. All that I achieve comes from the will of God; so it’s all good. All you need to know about yourself—is in you. God is never far away. Draw closer to God and God will draw closer to you. Bless
“Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.” James 4:8
The following scripture, Psalm 91, was given to me by someone who knew the signs of my heart, mind, body and soul being cleansed before transformation, even though I didn’t understand what was happening to me—at that time. I said this prayer while holding a glass of water in my left hand, and afterward I would take a sip of the water. My belief was that I was able to literally take the word into myself and solidify my faith in Jesus. I don’t think he cared about my being extra, he said all I had to do was call his name and that was faith enough; but that was me being human, needing “extra cushioning”. I now give Psalm 91 to you. Bless
1You who dwell in the shelter of the Most High,
who abide in the shade of the Almighty,
2Say to the LORD, “My refuge and fortress,
my God in whom I trust.”
3He will rescue you from the fowler’s snare,
from the destroying plague,
4He will shelter you with his pinions,
and under his wings you may take refuge;
his faithfulness is a protecting shield.
5You shall not fear the terror of the night
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6Nor the pestilence that roams in darkness,
nor the plague that ravages at noon.
7Though a thousand fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
near you it shall not come.
8You need simply watch;
the punishment of the wicked you will see.
9Because you have the LORD for your refuge
and have made the Most High your stronghold,
10No evil shall befall you,
no affliction come near your tent.
11For he commands his angels with regard to you,
to guard you wherever you go.
12With their hands they shall support you,
lest you strike your foot against a stone.
13You can tread upon the asp and the viper,
trample the lion and the dragon.
14Because he clings to me I will deliver him;
because he knows my name I will set him on high.
15He will call upon me and I will answer;
I will be with him in distress;
I will deliver him and give him honor.
16With length of days I will satisfy him,
and fill him with my saving power.
