Techniques of Meditation
"Meditation is the tongue of the soul and the language of our spirit."
Very often I am asked
by people desiring to increase their ability to hear and experience
spirit how to be more in touch with their higher consciousness. My
response is always the same. "Learn to meditate." While that may sound
simple, channelers, mediums, psychics, and spiritual practitioners of
all types truly share in the belief that unless we learn as souls,
to examine our own selves both as physical and spiritual beings,
we cannot and will not meet our energies with the ethereal to a
degree where we can permeate with the essence of the divine. As
you develop meditation techniques that work for you, a new door of
opportunity opens to widen your resources by which you exist.
There is an entire guiding force of Spirit Guides and Master
Teachers who aid us daily in all endeavors, large and small. When
we are open to recognizing them, our lives are guided by a Holy
path. When we resist our intuition and gut instincts and do not
listen to our Guides, we falter and life throws us curve balls as

related to stress.
Preparing the Body
The first step is to
put your world on pause and relax your body. You need to become
relaxed and aware, totally at peace yet hearing the pounding of your
heart and the hum of your brain. This is where you will discover a
place for you alone—a place for your unique inner self. This is where
you will be free from the roles you play that insure your survival,
free from the demands of the people and the institutions that absorb
your daily life. This is a place where you will want to review the
memories, pictures and stories of your life, a place where you observe
the results of your behavior. This is where you begin the work towards
creating a “partnership of equals” between the dual aspects of your
head and heart, your thoughts and feelings, your wants and needs and
your human and higher powers.
To enter into a
meditative state, find a quiet spot where you will not be disturbed.
The main objective is to relax the heart and wrap around the business
of the mind. Draw as many deep breaths as necessary to relax your
physical body, intellectual mind, emotional heart and spiritual soul
(practicing pranayama). For the muscles, it is usually best to start
with your feet and work your way up to the top of your head. Focus on
the pulsations of your heart and the rhythm of your breath until your
mind quiets down a bit and you have settled into a relaxed and
peaceful “easy chair” state: spine straight, head effortlessly resting
on the shoulders, feet on the floor and palms comfortably on the lap.
This begins the empowerment of your spiritual journey. With practice,
you will be able to obtain a state of deep relaxation within seconds.
With your eyes remaining closed, picture yourself entering a peaceful
place (such as a garden or seashore), and then silently chant the word
“Light” over and over again in your mind, attempting to lessen all
other thoughts that are extraneous. Then, picture a brilliant and pure
white light starting to glow from the inside of your mind. Gradually
slowing the timing of the chant, switch your focus to the rhythm of
your breath, using a single breath for each chant. As you inhale,
expand the intensity of the light inside your physical mind. As you
exhale, let the light spread throughout your body: torso, arms and
legs. Concentrate on the visualization of this light glowing and
radiating throughout your entire being, increasing your vibratory rate
with each breath.
Now let the dual
energies of the contrasting aspects of your brain flow independently
and freely. This is where you will enter into a personal conversation
between you and your guides. On one side will be your thoughts and
behavior, on the other will be your emotions and beliefs. Keep in mind
it is usually best to let your mind wander freely, rather than
force your mind to try to relax. Simply focus on the sound and
rhythm of your breathing while beginning to concentrate on each chakra
(energy center). Begin recognizing each chakra starting with your root
energy center as follows:
See this energy
center glowing and surrounded by the color of its origin.
Visualize a stake
extending from your root chakra thrusting deep into the earth to
Now feel the glow of
this color growing warm, spreading out and upward to meet the next
Connect each chakra
to the next, visualizing the colors of each one glowing and feeling
its warming, healing and balancing properties.
When you reach your
crown chakra, visualize white golden light spilling out over your
entire body and aura, covering you in a strong blanket of
Begin listening and again, letting your mind roam freely, focus
your attention on hearing what your higher consciousness has to
offer you. After a few minutes of letting the conversations and
feelings flow freely, the next step is to set your mind into an
even deeper meditative state by now envisioning a spirit guide
before you. Be open to whatever type of guide might appear.
Whether animal or human form, this guide is appearing at a very
crucial step and is there to gently guide you to your next higher
level of consciousness. This is where you allow the power of pure
love to help you seek what is best for all of your personal
dynamics and will be shown what is expected of you. It is next,
that you take the steps to meeting other loved ones on the other
side who reside on the ethereal plane.
Now visualize another gate or doorway in your meditation. Step
through this portal, knowing that whatever exists on the other
side is truly from spirit and the ethereal plane. You are safely
grounded by your root chakra to the earthly plane, yet you are
simultaneously able to inhabit the spiritual plane and visit those
who are living in a higher consciousness.
This is where your brain enters into a deeply personal space that
exists between resting and sleep. You will feel an “energizing” or
“tingling” sensation bristling throughout your being as you enter
into a pure meditative state. Western Science has confirmed the
reason why countless generations of people all across the globe
have searched for this state: it is the “gamma” brain wave state
that does not rely on conscious thought nor waves of emotion.
Scientists have shown that this unique brain activity activates
those areas of the brain where happiness, understanding, and
compassion reside. This is a far different mental state than the
“alpha” brain waves of the normal active/alert state; it exists
somewhere in between the resting level of “beta” and sleeping
state of “delta.”
