More than ever people are aware of the awesome benefits of meditation.
The most used form of meditation, according to my sources (customers, friends, family) is to get rid of stress, to have a moment to be able to let go of all those hectic energies we collect during a single day. No surprise there really. As time goes by we tend to look for alternative ways of getting in touch with our core and just be at peace.
There are many ways of meditating and many reasons why we do so. Many use meditation as a way of reaching their highest potential, others like to just go out astrally and leave the physical body behind for an excursion of wonder and knowledge, still others do so to be able to heal themselves and help alleviate pains, headaches, colds etc.
Through the years I have been meditating but, I did not start exploring until I discovered that meditation goes beyond the opening of chakras etc. I discovered that I could meditate in a different way. This is not something new I know, but it is something I stumbled upon while on meditative state. Even though I’ve read extensively on meditation, there is something to be said for practice, there is no better teacher than actual hands on experience.
I think it was not a fluke that I did so that way. In foresight I know now I was not ready for any other type of meditation before that moment of “truth” shall we say hit me. Emotionally and mentally my energies were spent elsewhere, all those hectic thoughts had to lead somewhere, someday and through the constant sitting down, calming thoughts, focusing said energies and just being still I arrived to what I call “meditation with intent”
What is Meditation with intent you may ask? (hopefully, I mean I do want to tell you) well is just the simple act of having an intent, a goal, that you would like to achieve through your meditations.
You make them as long as you want or as short as it suits you. You can meditate on so many things, and if you practice it faithfully, you can see results that will make you feel proud of the fact that you did not give up just because you might have tended to fall asleep during meditations at the very beginning, or could not for the life of you still your thoughts.
We go through that phase, but sticking to you guns and showing that old brain that you are the boss, and it better open up all those doors in your mind, that no matter how many locks might hold them close, believe me, they can be opened and its worth it. For once you open those doors, the possibilities extend in all directions, to infinity and back! Still want to find out more? Read on..
Let’s start with one of the things that are foremost in the majority of minds… money. I know! it’s not love sadly, although that one comes a close second, it is money. That energy that we humans have made so real, that it has become a huge green elephant walking through the corridors of our conscious mind.
So lets say money does not flow as smoothly as we wish it would, there might be some low walls that detain its progress or some mighty ones (so we think) that stop the flow completely. Before I proceed, do remember that money represents different things for different mind frames, and that what may be abundance to some it’s completely different to others.
The first thing we do is trying to meditate on how to get money, but surprise, surprise! the meditation only gives us more stress, as that old brain I mentioned will tend to lead us through the corridor of “logic” and worst… math!! (ughh) calculations of budgets, payments, bills, mortgages and whatever else it is you are dealing with will pop out of hidden corners, making you jump and be anxious at just what you might find next and decide it’s not worth, so you close up yourself and open your eyes, and say “forget it! It’s not worth it! I knew it wouldn’t work”! but wait! there is still hope that it just might.
Money its only energy, pure undiluted it flows through the Universe, and thus through our solar system and our lovely planet. This energy is strong, and once you garnish it, you can make it into what you wish, in this case it has been made into something palpable on this earthly plane. It is not about closing your eyes real tight and say to yourself “I believe, I believe!” one hundred times a day but just to know that these energies are available to anyone. It is a matter of how we garnish it, and hold it in. Yes, I can feel those thoughts already! “Right, if that is the case how come I cannot even find a darn quarter in between the pillows of my sofa?” and I say your point is valid.
We are as rich or as poor as we feel we are deserved to be. This might have discombobulated reasons that go way back into your childhood or even another lifetime. Sometimes, unconsciously we program ourselves that we can only have so much, but not more than that for whatever reasons we give ourselves.
It is a matter or re-training our brains (that old conscious devil) and being patient in the process. Now’ what I want you to understand is that your meditation with intent to get the flow of money going in your life will not make you an overnight millionaire (but if it does…. do let us know:) but it will make you more open to said energies. Money comes in different ways, through different channels, and possibilities. We have to be open to all, and this is what the meditation with intent is doing…. opening the doors in your mind (remember what I said about those locked doors?). Say you open a door, not much only a tiny bit (the opening is represented by your belief, the more you believe the wider the door will open) and some long-lost friend, or relative that owed you money, appears out of the blue and pays you back, now isn’t that sweet? you will not have to do internet searches anymore to find that son of a..errhh.. your aunt, or some lady that is their mom.
Say over at your job place the powers that be, pass out periodic money bonus based on good work performance etc. hey! you might be the next one receiving one. Or your job is one where you receive tips. You might have a nice, generous patron, that will leave you a nice fat tip. Point is, be open to all! whether you get $10 or $100 when you least expected it, see it as a blessing, that has come through your perseverance in your intent to be open to the Universe and its flow, for that is all it is really.
I understand that to some is not easy being patient, and for others is an easy piece. Patience pays up! so let us begin.
Start your meditation as you usually do, in whatever way you feel comfortable. I advice the use of a small candle (votive) to focus your energy into the flame. This makes it easier but you can also use water if you so wish a small bowl of water right in front of you, or music. Don’t forget to create a circle of light around you to protect you. Do your thing, and relax and finally achieve your point of stillness. This is the moment you start visualizing your surroundings. With you inner eye, you will see that there are no walls around you, but just light. We live in a non-reality so this is easy to achieve, seeing nothing but light. Don’t think with your conscious mind, but with your subconscious, your imagination. Don’t panic if you do not see anything where the T.V. is supposed to be! just go with the moment.
Now see these energies as moving around you, away from you, coming right back etc. The color of these energies is your own. Make it what you wish. Now imagine that your silver cord comes out from your heart out into the space you see before you. Make it go as far as you want to. Tell yourself that with this cord you are searching for and finding money possibilities. Tell yourself that you are doing this, with the best intention for yourself in love and harmony. Always remember to say that. You don’t want to cause negativity around you, but always the highest good. Do this meditation with an amount in mind, or just simple like the above. Imagine your cord finding places far and close from where the money might come. Maintain this visualization as long as you want to and come back to the moment. Ground yourself. Open circle. If you still feel light-headed after meditation ( it happens, energy has been spent) eat something like a yogurt or fruit. If you have something red around your home, focus your attention on it for a couple of minutes. It helps to bring you back to yourself.
You can add to your meditation on an every day basis, or just a few times a week. In between, help yourself by consciously making an effort on saving your money better. Get a small piggy bank or a small box, and place money there every day if you can, no matter if it is pennies, quarters or dollar bills, whatever you can. What this accomplishes is that you are telling the Universe that you are willing to change, that you not only believe in the Universal flow, but most importantly…in yourself, your own power to create changes.
Meditation dear readers, is our portal to the Universe. We are light, made up of different colors. When we reach our highest level, meditation comes as natural as breathing and as necessary. Anyone no matter if spiritual practitioner or not, can use meditation to better their own lives, whether it’s a better job, better health, success, but like everything in life, it takes effort and practice. The more we do it, the better we get at it.
We are Love and Light
