“Meditation is listening to the Divine within.” ~ Edgar Cayce
Meditation is one of the foundation stones upon which I have built my life. It is a twice daily routine for me, and I have practiced now for nearly thirty years. Meditation is not based on a religion, and many atheists I know practice meditation just as comfortably as those who have faith in something more, or a belief in God. Put most simply, meditation helps you to know yourself, and that quiet wise space within you.
Meditation has helped me to relax, to facilitate my spiritual and psychic development, to manage pain, to sleep better, and to connect to the Divine (or whatever you choose to call that energy if that is your belief). It has helped me to understand and love myself, and to develop compassion for self and others.
Over the next seven weeks I will be recording some simple guided meditations for you, starting from tomorrow. These recordings can be played directly from my blog, or downloaded. The meditations will help you to become familiar with the act of meditating, and are designed to get you out of your head, and into a connected, soulful heart space.
Guided meditations, where you listen to someone’s voice to take you into and out of the practice of the meditation, can help beginners and those who find meditating difficult, as well as those who already enjoy regular meditative practice.
These are the areas I will be covering:
- Orienting My Awareness with my Body
- Orienting My Awareness with my Mind
- Orienting My Awareness with my Heart
- Orienting My Awareness with my Soul
- Orienting My Awareness with the Earth
- Orienting My Awareness with Oneness
- Orienting My Awareness with the Expanding Universe
I do hope you will join me.
Much, much love to you, Nicole xx
