Yesterday I talked about knowing the truth versus feeling the truth. I posited that feeling the truth requires surrender, trust, and being present in the moment in order that evidence of the spiritual truth you are attempting to feel within can present itself.
One of the most miraculous tools for feeling peace, trust, joy, balance, energy, bliss, and anything else you desire, is meditation. Meditation doesn’t seem fun or interesting at first, and that thought can prevent one from trying it. But once you start to attempt a short meditation each day, a routine like brushing your teeth or taking your vitamins, it becomes easy and enjoyable. Not only does sitting in meditation become more comfortable after making it a routine, it starts to create visible positive changes in your everyday life. The practice of living all of the wonderful spiritual principles, that in your mind you know will improve your life exponentially, begins by simply sitting in silence.
Meditation creates space within that is normally occupied with thoughts and emotions. When you clean out your inner space, the universe has a vessel in which to express its highest potential. Eventually when meditating you can feel this flow of universal energy as love, joy, and boundless peace. Miracles begin take place within and without.
To begin practicing meditation I highly recommend Deepak Chopra’s “21 Day Meditation Challenge.” This particular bout of the meditation challenge is a collaboration between Deepak and Oprah entitled “Miraculous Relationships.” This is a free online program that offers a new 15 minute guided meditation every day for 21 days. Oprah and Deepak offer invaluable guidance throughout each meditation, and the music is beautiful. Deepak has done several meditation challenges in the past, and each one has completely changed my life in ways I could have never imagined. Many blessings as you go forth into the practice. If you have any questions, comments, or experiences you would like to share about this meditation challenge, or other experiences with meditation, please leave a comment.
