Meditation – Into the Mystic Class #1

MeditationMeditation – Into the Mystic Class #1 is a powerful jewel for self discovery in our spiritual jewel box. It is the first step in our spiritual quest for God consciousness. Through simple meditation techniques we can learn to get centered and let go of our thoughts and worries. In doing so we tap into our own spirit, our own energy and awareness of our Divine self.

Meditation is listening to God, whereas praying is talking to Goddess. As we reach the place of inner peace we access the wisdom within us – our intuition. We honor our spirit through this process of going within and experiencing our own nature.

This inner voice of our Higher Power that we access through meditation always guides us to our highest and best potential. Trust it and allow self to be guided by it’s truth. Our job is to listen to the still small voice, then follow it’s direction in the moment. This takes faith and trust in God.

Our Inner Lamp

Each time we go into meditation we add a drop of oil to our inner lamp.  One drop alone is hardly noticeable. Consistently meditating over time enriches our life as it fills our inner lamp to brim with oil.

The more we meditate and fill our inner lamp the less our thoughts control us. Instead we develop a relationship with the master within, our Higher Power. Then as we face life’s challenges we know that we are not alone. The universe is here to assist us in resolving problems and changing our perceptions.

Our inner lamp lights the way to the awareness of our true nature. It is the seat of our empowerment as a spiritual being. We feel the energy of our authentic self. Innate gifts within reveal themselves to us in the moment. Our world opens up to us with unlimited possibilities.

Our Sacred Space

First we find our sacred space, a quiet place without distractions for our meditation. A room designated for this purpose would be ideal. A portion of a room would also work well.  Just keep it simple.

When we find our sacred space turn off the phones. Let loved ones know that this is our sitting time and we are not to be disturbed for about twenty minutes. We can meditate in the morning or evening.  This is about our commitment to our own well being on our spiritual path so let’s make it happen.

Next find a cushion or chair to sit on comfortably in our sacred space. Try different cushions and chairs and see what feels good. It is important for our body to relax so that we can let go and focus. If our body is uncomfortable we will be distracted. Simple stretches help to prepare the body for sitting during the session.

Focus on our Breath

Focus on our breath as we bring our awareness within self. Take three cleansing breaths nice and slowly, in and out. Keep the mind on our breath again and again. As our mind becomes activated we bring our thoughts back to the moment, relaxing into each breath.

Focus on our breath and pay attention to the spaces between breaths. All we have is this moment and our breath. Continue this process for about twenty minutes each day and reap the many benefits of meditation.

As we focus on our breath remember that the breath is life, the life of the Divine within us. Feel self channeling the light and life of Spirit with each breath. Bring this energy to the places inside of us that need healing. We are Divine beings of love and light.

We are Spirit

Remember who we are. We are Spirit. Love is our essence as we are love made manifest in flesh. We are not our body, not our mind, not our emotions.

We are Spirit for the Source of all truth dwells within us. It is through meditation in silence that we experience who we truly are, Divinity itself. As we grow in love with ourselves, God and the world so does our consciousness of the oneness with all living things.

Intuitive Readings Seattle – Reiki Healing Seattle – Meditation Seattle 

For more than 32 years I have been helping many people from all walks of life and across the world, including India, China and England. Some clients prefer to come see me in person for an Intuitive Reading. However, the majority of my clients call me for phone sessions.

Intuition is unlimited as God is unlimited so it doesn’t matter whether you are in the same room with me or in Hong Kong! My intention is the same – to serve as a channel of clarity and healing to assist you in all areas of your life. Doing this work makes me truly happy and I blessed to be able to help people and do what I love.

When you set up an Intuitive Reading in Seattle or a phone session with me,  it’s best to write down your questions ahead of time.  This helps focus your intention on what it you want guidance for in your life.

At the beginning of your Intuitive Reading, I go deep into a meditative state and ask Spirit to allow me to be a clear and pure channel of love, healing and guidance for you.  The answer to each question flows through me in words and pictures and the information received is spiritual in nature, yet practical for every day life.

I encourage all of you to:Maureen Brennan Mercier
