Meditation: Finding Your Way

Paul Kiritsis - Sunday, November 10, 2013

Below are some meditation exercises you can try that will assist in finding your way:

 

Exercise 1

Relax and centre.

Think of a difficulty you are experiencing or have recently experienced in your life. Allow yourself to picture the situation(s) involved, to hear any words that may connect with what is happening, and to feel all the associated feelings.

Now think of any other similar difficulties you currently have or have had in the recent past. Again allow real situations to emerge into your consciousness. Allow the memories to unfold. You may want to write down ideas and images as they occur to you.

Now connect these memories and see if you can find connections and common patterns between your current or recent difficulties. Look for themes that throw light on the connections. Ask yourself: what is the underlying purpose here? Why is this happening? What is the soul wanting to happen next?

 

Exercise 2

Relax and centre. Take some time to let your body really become comfortable, but remain alert.

Close your eyes, take a few deep breaths and let appear in your imagination the face of a wise old person whose eyes express great love for you.

Engage him/her in dialogue, and, in whatever way seems best use the presence and guidance to help you understand better whatever questions, directions, choices, problems, etc. you are dealing with at this moment. This dialogue can be verbal or non-verbal, taking place on a visual and symbolic level of communication and understanding.

Spend as much time as you need with this wise old person, then thank the image for having appeared to you, return to normal consciousness and write down what has happened.
