Having difficulty meditating?

by Jun 16, 2017Uncategorized

When I first got involved in spiritualism I “opened up” by meditating. By that I mean I took some time each day to be in a quiet place, usually with gentle. background music and allowed myself to drift into another state of conscience in which I was able to perceive different realities. For me, it was easy. That is how I started to channel.

However, having led group meditations for many years now. I have become aware that for some people the experience of meditating in the way I have outlined above can be altogether quite frustrating as they find it impossible to calm their mind in order to enter a state of heightened awareness.

If this happens to you. Do not worry. Do not think you are doing something wrong or that there is something wrong with you. There is not.

We are all as different and as worthy as flowers in a meadow. We do not all need the same amount of water, nutrients or sun to look beautiful.

You are beautiful as you are and unique in your own way. So perhaps you do not need to meditate to open up spiritually. Perhaps you are already there and just did not realize it!

I am saying this after spending a wonderful, relaxing afternoon with a dear friend who is an artist. She used to get so frustrated with group meditation that I suggested she give it up.

Yet watching her work yesterday in her studio, what I felt was the creative force moving through her into her work and filling the room with amazing energies of
pure light.

So, when you are really into what you are doing. whether it is baking a cake, arranging flowers or singing your heart out just know that you too are connected.
