Meditation & Visualization: A First Step in Opening Up Psychically
Meditation: for tuning in, clearing, relaxing, receiving insights, and so much more…..
Meditation is useful for clearing, centering, focusing, receiving, de-stressing, relaxing…. And it’s not such a big deal… while it helps to have a quiet, peaceful room, to be sitting or lying comfortably and have some soothing music playing in the background, these aren’t necessary. In fact, I’ve had some of my most powerful meditations while doing the dishes, washing the floors, taking a bath, driving the car, preserving peaches, sun-bathing at the beach, walking in the forest and staring at the stars…. in other words, we can drop into a meditative state just about anywhere, anytime, and most of us do, without even realizing it.
I try to withdraw for two hours every day to meditate, pray and shift gears for awhile… it is how I am able to work so late so often… So what am I doing when I say I am meditating? First I am withdrawing, taking time to notice how I feel and what’s going on in my body, emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually… I take time to listen to my heart and to generate some loving feeling… I think one of the biggest objectives of the exercise is to relax for awhile and give myself time to notice, both myself and my world.
I start the process with some deep breathing, long big deep breaths into my belly, filling my lungs, and releasing slowly. This helps me to center and ground, gets my attention focussed on what I plan to do. Then I’ll take a moment to adjust my position to notice how I feel physically and settle my body into the process. As I continue breathing deeply, I’ll scan my energy fields, see what’s up… then I may pose a question, or do a visualization exercise, or simply just relax and breathe…. Sometimes thoughts, messages, ideas come up, sometimes I send them away and just try to center on my core question – or on relaxing – sometimes I’ll stay with the thought and see where it takes me… Sometimes nothing happens, but I now am relaxed and ready to take on the world… and sometimes the messages come later, while I’m focussed on the highway, or on the pot I’m scrubbing…. I’ve learned to look deeply into my world for messages and clues, meditation makes it much easier to notice what’s there to be seen, felt and heard.
Advice from an Enlightened Visitor
Psychic power is amazing. One day, it may very well revolutionize living and impact the three pure sciences (physics, chemistry, biology) in a never before dreamed way. I find that today, however, psychic ability remains dormant in society.
When I say “Dormant”, I don’t mean undeveloped. Some individuals are quite impressive with their powers. I mean un-used. When a psychic is bestowed a gift or (more likely) develops a gift of the mind through perseverance and determination, they have completed a magnificent feat. However, we must recall that the majority of the world is still suffering at the hands of their own egos.
What I feel we need to do is begin to use these abilities to help people, wherever there is need. I am not talking about a sort of Batman’s Adventure heroic quest to save the world, I am talking about a local level of subtle aid. I am certainly not saying to go around and brush your abilities into peoples lives unwelcomed with a cry of “you need help”. There are small things that we can all do, and those of us with gifts need to really try to make a difference in the world.
I see that meditation is becoming more popular. Though the practice does much for the physical body and mind, it by itself doesn’t help our society. Gifted members of our society, I believe, need to go all the way to seek a means of escape from suffering both for themselves and for their surrounding environment.
My message to you is that there Is a way to escape from the grief that we all experience, and there Is a way to spread that joy to our brothers and sisters, and that those of us who are spiritual aware should act now. We are the “sleeping Buddhas” in Eastern philosophy.
What follows is my road map for this task:
Take a moment and sit, comfortably, like for meditation.
Now, release all thoughts and images.
Release all understanding.
Release all knowledge.
No more light, sound, taste, nothing.
Thoughts will come, but take no heed: do not follow them.
Relax into this void. You will feel the void fill your body like water filling a buck, but all over at the same time.
Persevere through this alien feeling; it will cease with perseverance.
When this feeling stops, when you come through the other side, then you will have attained Samadhi: Union with God: Enlightenment. It is no difficult task.
You don’t have to try this or believe me at all. If I am wrong then you are best off disregarding me. But if what I say is true….
The most I can tell you about the experience of being Enlightened is that you feel complete. That defines the whole thing. From there, We can use our psychic powers combined with our wisdom to become the saviors of the planet. In this time of war and confusion, the world needs forebearers of PEACE. That is what an enlightened being is. That is what you can become.
Awakening is simple. The rest… will come in time. -Sapieneptus
