Whenever I find myself to be overwhelmed, scattered and without energy to continue working on my projects, I sit down for a half hour meditation open up and recieve from the eternal source of energy available from Source. While in this restive state, I often chant some OMs and it always brings my chakras and auric field into alignment, centers my energy and revitalizes me. Here is my meditation technique.
Begin by sitting in a comfortable position with your back straight or propped up on pillows.
BREATH- Close your eyes and begin taking in deep breaths, slowly inhale through your nose and out through your mouth. Visualize the incoming breath as two beams of white light. See this breath as energy or prana. As you begin to concentrate your attention on your breath, allow your body to relax, releasing the tension in the body with flow of the incoming and out going breath. When you feel relaxed begin to visualize a beam of white light coming in through the top of your head. Visualize this beam coming down over your face, neck, shoulders, down the front and the back of your trunk, out your arms, hands, and out through your legs and feet. Create an oval of white light all around your body. Remember to keep breathing gently and rhythmically. Connect the breath and light as one process. This process takes about 5-10 minutes.
Chanting-Toning, is another way to relax and concentrate on your breath to create an inner space for meditation to occur. Start by chanting the OM. Start saying it outwardly in repetition; hold your inner focus on your third eye, the center between the eyebrows. The OM, the universal sound of God, works to clear all the chakras, the main energy centers in the body. The OM aligns the four bodies, i.e., the physical, the emotional, mental and spiritual we have four bodies and 7 levels of awareness available to us. The sounding of the OM is really A-U-M the registers at the base and sacrel chakras, the OO sound registers at the solar plexus and heart chakras, and the MM sound registers at the third eye and head center. Practice chanting the OM to clear the centers for energizing and aligning to your higher self or soul self. 5 minutes
This is when you can use your mind to visualize the things you want to get done and prioritize see them easily completed.
When you feel you’ve settled into this quiet space you can work with your own subconscious by affirming positive feedback to the areas you would like to work on. Use your visualization to create pictures of what you want. For example to eat better food, to clear up negative behavior patterns, to focus on problem solving. To strengthen your self esteem. You can create your own affirmations like: I am light, I am love, all good things flow towards me and out of me, I give and receive naturally. All my needs are met by the Creator physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. I ask for a solution to my challenges and the universe responds. I am faith. I am a good person. I am harmony today. You can use this time to pray to your supreme being, deity, saint what ever you believe in. 5 minutes
A 20 minute meditation morning and night are best for optimal results.
You can do all these at once when you get familiar and comfortable with the process. The habit of relaxing when breathing will put you into an Alpha state or Theta by quieting the mind and allowing you to connect with your soul body or Source.
