Meditation & Feeling

Meditation is really quite simple and although it may not be a wormhole in the interdimensional sense it does open up new experiences of inner peace. There's no need to add complexity to meditation in the form of mantras or repetitive chanting, although some people find such devices helpful

Certain sounds used in conjunction with meditation seem to have special power. Examples are found in ancient mantras known to older enlightened Budhhist monks who are able to connect with and manifest impressive energies and power

Meditation Position

Meditation can occur in any body position. Some people meditate standing, others prefer sitting. Some have eyes open and others prefer to close their eyes. There is, however, a frequently used sitting position where the legs are crossed, the hands are placed on the lap with fingers interlaced, and the spine is erect and perpendicular to the ground

In this position the chin is pulled in a little, and the eyes are focused slightly above the horizon. This meditation position is preferred by some Asian people

Being grounded and perpendicular to the ground may be important because being perpendicular to the earth aligns the spine with the natural bio-magnetic fields of the planet which helps the natural energy field to flow through the spine and energise the body. Keeping the fingers interlaced may also help to contain this energy in the body where initially we want it to accumulate

The Meditation Process

During many forms of meditation the intention is to relax the physical body beginning with the head and consciously relaxing all muscles down to the toes. The next step is to become aware of the position inside the head a little behind the eyes where we can mentally observe without analysis or mental engagement

The Breath

A common focus of attention is the natural process of breathing. We can observe the breath but we don't try to control it, although long exhales are preferred by some people as that will naturally slow the heart rate and assist a deeper relaxation of the body

When meditating we don't try to control anything, apart from the breath. We just observe without engagement rather like looking at a nature scene and enjoying the beauty of what we observe. We do the same during meditation except we're observing our inner world

Focus of Attention

There will be 'monkey chatter' in the thoughts during meditation. We observe this chatter but we don't process the thoughts as that would simply create more 'chatter'. It's better to bring attention back to the breath or to the mantra, if that is what is being used. If more 'chatter' occurs it's necessary to again move attention back to the breath, or to the point of focus you have chosen to use for your meditation

Empowering Our Aura

When our body is fully relaxed we may choose to move our attention to the healing energy flowing through our body. There are two energies that are of interest to us during meditation

One of these enters through the feet and spirals anticlockwise towards the head. The other energy enters from above through the head and slowly spirals anticlockwise downwards towards the feet. We may visualise this latter energy as a bright white light

Both spiraling energy flows will meet and pass each other in a form similar to a double helix. Experienced gurus are able to tap into this energy and mentally direct it to areas of the body that need healing

Alaje's Thoughts

Alaje, a 'visitor', says that meditation is certainly important but we should not think about it to much. Rather we should visualize breathing in cosmic energy and to feel it in our chest near the heart rather than thinking too much about what we are doing. He also says that during meditation we should include feelings of thankfulness, respect, and appreciation for all the things and people around us that we experience

Meditation is a time to feel thankfulness for this earthly life experience
