I DIDN'T MENTION IT IN THE AUDIO, BUT YOU NEED TO HAVE YOUR EYES CLOSED THROUGHOUT THESE AUDIO MEDITATION INSTRUCTIONS.
BEFORE USING THIS GUIDED MEDITATION, PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING:
After following these guided meditation instructions to the letter a few times, I do encourage you to do this meditation guiding yourself without the use of this audio.
The purpose of meditation is to come to stillness of body & mind & in doing so to connect to a state of nothingness through focus & concentration. By pausing thought you come into direct contact with the Creative Intelligence of the Universe, the Absolute. Thoughts are usually about the problems of yesterday & the possible solutions of tomorrow & are a distraction from the moment, the place & time in which we really are. Meditation brings you into the moment, helping us to overcome the transient & to rest in the Absolute.
Meditation is best done within the 1st hour of waking up to start your day & again in the 1st hour or so after finishing a day's work before you relax, whatever hours you may keep.
This Mindfulness Meditation technique that you will now learn to do is very powerful and best for us in the western world as it brings us into touch with our 5 senses. When this happens we feel, taste, smell, see & hear much better as we're more focused & in the moment rather than being absorbed by distracting thoughts, which means we can complete our work in half the time as we're more tuned in to our senses.
With this meditation, we therefore start by bringing the body to stillness. The mind will not come to complete stillness if the body is un-still. Once the body is still we bring the mind to stillness. This we do by concentrating first on our weakest sense and then progress though the senses to our strongest sense. This way we become truly connected to our senses.
Before we do that, we need to relax & get our bodies into the correct position.
So, firstly, sit upright on a comfortable chair with your feet resting on the floor or, cross-legged on a cushion. Do not lean against the back of the chair; let your body support itself.
Your back must be upright, dead straight, aligning our Chakra points which will then give us a better connection to the Absolute. Imagine your spine being connected by a piece of string with the string going from the bottom vertebrae right up the spine & out of the top of your head. Imagine pulling the string from above your head to straighten your whole back & make your back as straight as possible. Your Chakras will then be completely in line.
Next, hold down your index fingers with your thumbs. This is to hold down ego as ego comes through this finger.
The other 3 fingers should be straight. These 3 fingers represent the 3 Guna, Tamas (rest / ignorance), Ragas (movement) & Sattva (Truth) that are the 3 energy sources that make up the Human Spirit. Holding these fingers outward is offering the Guna back to the Universe from where it came.
With your hands in this position, rest them, palms up, on your knees.
Now roll your shoulders from forwards to backwards in a slow movement opening up your chest & Ethereal heart.
Then bring your attention to your ethereal heart in the centre of your chest & instruct it to get warm. Then instruct it to get warmer still & melting away the frostiness of the day.
Observe the energy that is life permeating your whole body. Be aware of the Self as the Observer of this energy being aware that we cannot be that which we can observe!
Once you finish the meditation thank the Universe for allowing you connect as all of the information herein, is Universal information & belongs to no one.
Enjoy this mediation, that will improve your spiritual, mental & physical health, as this will de-stress you completely & in the presence of no stress, you immune system will become much stronger, making you physically more healthy.
WELCOME TO THE FIRST DAY OF THE REST OF YOUR AMAZING LIVES. OM.
