The Secret of Simple Meditation
As a psychic and medium, it has only been a few years since I, myself, have been meditating. My grandmother used to try to encourage me to mediate when I was a child but through the majority of my younger years, I did not have much interest in just sitting and being quiet and connecting in that way. I had way too much going on in my life to take the time out to just BE.
I would get all kinds of information and messages all the time anyway, I could see and hear Ascended Masters, teachers, guides and ancestors without any focus at all, what did I need to meditate for?
It wasn’t until I was in my late thirty’s that I decided to introduce meditation into my life, and truly, what a difference it made! With making a conscious effort to balance my energy and connect (almost) every day, suddenly I was getting even more information than I did before.
It improved my focus and my concentration, and even enabled me to see some health issues that were present in me that I had not been aware of before. With this new information, I started to work with my naturopath and doctor and am now on my way to better health.
My energies are now much more balanced, and I find I am actually able to get more out of my days. It is like time has expanded for me and I now have the time to do more of what is really important. Using these techniques will help you to achieve the same results.
Many of the techniques in this book were channeled during my own meditations. Originally my first book was not going to be about meditation at all. It was during my own meditations and channels that I was told I needed to share this information before writing about anything else, so that I could share with others, a way to work with and boost their own energies.
Meditation need not be difficult nor time consuming. However, initially you should spend ten to twenty minutes per day to become accustomed to your individual pattern of breathing, being aware of energies in and around you and how your chakras feel and affect different parts of your being. Once the technique is learned, meditation can be performed during your daily activities and in your own way.
I have set this book up in such a way that you can read through it once and then go back to the areas that you feel you need the most and focus there.
Chapter 1: Energy
The Energy of Source, Universal Energy. Everything is connected by energy. Things are in form because of the way the energy particles bounce off one another. If the particles changed the way they move, the form would change. We are all connected to the Universal Energy, we are all a part of it. What affects one part of the energy in the Universe affects all parts of the Universal Energy. There are examples of this when people join together. Whether it is a group that gets together to pray and everyone can feel the positive energy flowing, or whether it.s a case of mass panic or a riot where people feed off of the negative (lower vibrating) energy of the whole. We all share in the energy of the whole. It can be compared to the ocean. The ocean is the ¡°whole¡±, like Universal Energy. Each drop of water is a part of that ocean, much like each person on earth is a part of the Universal Energy.
As the world goes through her shifts and changes, her people energetically feel the shifts and changes. The better your energy, the more positive, higher vibrating energy will be enjoyed by those around you and the world as the whole.
Energy and Ch’i
I think the first thing to understand is that everything is energy. Ch.i is the energy that permeates and flows through and around everything . When the Ch.i energy is balanced, life and surroundings are more comfortable. When Ch.i is out of balance or blocked, it can create discomfort and illness.
This book is meant to give you a basic understanding of your own energy and energy centres and explains how you can use meditation to work with and balance your own energy. It will not help you to change other people.s energy.
Once you do improve and balance your own energy, you will find that people around you and the things around you change. You can take more control of your life by controlling and balancing your energy. Once you understand the balancing of your energy and how it works, your perceptions of your own reality will change. This is a major event. If you look at things around you more closely, you will discover how they are changing. Just the act of looking at something changes it. Even an atom will change just by you observing it. For those of you who would like a more scientific, logical explanation of how this occurs, it is Quantum Physics, which we will not go into in this book for obvious reasons.
Once you get involved in meditating and becoming aware of your energy centres, known as Chakras, it will feel almost magical. We have the ability to create our own realities and impact things around us with our energy. We cannot make other people do or be or behave in a certain way! I cannot stress this enough. You cannot manipulate other people. To try to do so, can change our own energy in unhealthy ways. However, we do have the ability to change the way we see things and infuse loving energy into situations and relationships ourselves. This enables us to notice what is really going on in and around us and act with more love in our daily lives, rather than constantly re-acting, generally from a place of fear. Love is yet another key to happiness. As we “reap what we sow”, when we give loving energy, we then receive loving energy in return.
When I speak of giving and receiving loving energy, it is not just with our close relationships. You will notice a difference in all your interactions with everyone around you, whether it is the clerk at your local store, co-workers, bosses, or anyone you come in contact with in your daily life.
As you are more infused with loving energy, you begin to vibrate at a higher, lighter level of energy. As you vibrate at a higher, lighter level of energy, lower vibrations are no longer attracted to you.
