gets you to the psychic power
Meditation is a purposely induced state where
the physical body and conscious mind are bypassed temporarily so
the inner self comes into focus.. Through a series of mental
exercises the body is placed at rest, and simultaneously, the
mind is emptied of any and all thoughts enabling the person to
create a sort of suspended animation. It is at this point
that a state pure heightened awareness without thought is
attained. Mystics of all religions have claimed that once this
state is achieved, one can listen for God or All That Is, to
The depth from which the psychic reader gets
information is not quite as deep as this state, but practice
makes it easier for the psychic to 'drop into' the level where
all the psychic activity takes place.
A big bonus for people who meditate is the
enhanced health benefits they receive as a byproduct. One is an
increased immune system efficiency,
and the ability to withstand stress and remain calm naturally.
Meditation - when and where
When - The best time to meditate is in the
morning after you have prepared yourself for the day. Rise
about 15-20 minutes earlier and do it. Don't worry about how
you'll know when the time is up, your body will automatically
alert you when the allotted time is up. You can meditate at
night also, but sometimes the work of the day may cause you to
Where - Find a place where you won't be disturbed by noises,
telephones, or other people barging in on you. Sit upright
either on the floor or in a straight back chair with a cushion
so you are comfortable. Don't lay down in bed because you may
Meditation - the process
The object of the process is two-fold; to relax
the body and to subdue the thoughts that continuously traverse
our mind. You do this by occupying the mind with the process of
relaxing the body. As the body relaxes, so does the mind. One
never stops the mind completely, but one can achieve states of
relatively long periods where the mind is silent. It is during
these moments, no matter how brief they are, that we enter a
state of the void, the null or nothingness. This is the state of
being that the mystics refer as listening to God.
The process - Sit in your selected place and
relax yourself. Take a few deep breathes paying deliberate
attention to the sound of the air as it enters and exits. Focus
your mind on your body and begin instructing it to relax.
Beginning at the top of your head, instruct the muscles to
relax, and then actually feel these muscles relax. Move on to
the face and neck muscles, focusing your mind on instructing
your body to relax these muscles and then actually feeling the
muscles relax before you go on. Continue doing this until you
have reached your toes. Then you will be aware of the relaxed
state your body is in.
If at any time your mind drifts onto something
else, just return it back to the task of relaxing your body
parts. Don't fight or struggle against these thought intrusions,
just let them go peaceably away, and continue the process.
Once you have completed the body part
relaxation, then begin to relaxing the mind. You do this by
beginning to count backwards and paying attention to the actual
numbers. This way you occupy your mind with the process of
meditation leaving no room for extraneous thoughts to enter.
This helps to train your mind to focus. Start the counting from
around 20 and imagine seeing the shape of each number as you
count down. When you reach the bottom, start the count over
again and when you reach the bottom again, repeat the process
again. At one point you may disappear from the counting process
and not be aware that you've done so. Its OK, don't be
concerned, its part of meditation.
As you practice this process, you'll find that
it gets easier to avoid the thoughts that are in your mind.
Focus decreases the impact of random thoughts and allows you to
drift into the state of nothingness.
No matter how long you meditate, you will always
have days when the it seemed perfect and flawless and then
you will have those days that seem like bummers. Its also OK
because what counts is the overall effect. After you have
practiced for a while, you will begin to notice the difference
in your life, and you'll wonder why you didn't start sooner.
Remember to tell yourself, prior to starting
each time, how much time you want to spend. Your inner clock
will let you know when the time is up.
