Often in our lives we just need a little guidance to get us centered. Many of you are already aware I spend a lot of time doing poojas and meditations and Reiki. I try to find time early mornings around 4:30 to 5:30 and late night between 11:00-12:00. For those who feel the chaos of everyday life and just don’t feel centered at times below are some techniques that will help you find peace within your self and manifest sanctuary in your everyday life. Especially these planetary retrograde for those fixed signs do not forget to meditate and clean your home and burn frankincense and myrrh.
Meditation the proper way: Meditation provides the ability to silence the mind and experience the inner self. Meditation restores natural power to the mind just as charging restores power to a worn out battery. Meditation destroys worries, fear, and stress that people experience in the “cut-throat” competitive environment of modern societies. When the mind becomes quiet, the body becomes quiet too and knows how to repair itself. The following simple technique may be used to meditate daily: Sit in a cross-legged pose on the floor or on a chair with feet flat on the ground. Keep the spine straight and fully relax the body and mind. Your overall feeling should be as if you are sitting on the beach of a calm ocean, on a starry cool night of the summer. Close the eyes and gently focus attention at the center between the eyebrows (ajna chakra). Breathe normally (don’t force breathing in any way) and say mentally Rã (ã as in father) while inhaling and Mã (ã as in father) while exhaling. Practice this meditation technique 20 to 30 minutes twice daily, in the mornings and evenings, before meals. At the end of the meditation, with the eyes closed and attention focused at the center between the eyebrows, say the following prayer, as recommended by Paramahansa Yogãnanda: “I will reason, I will create, I will do everything I set my mind to do, but Oh Lord, guide my creative abilities to do the right thing that I should do.” Prayer and what it does. Prayer is a very powerful tool available to man to purify the mind and gain spiritual strength.
Meditation Techniques: Purchase some relaxing music (I prefer Indian flute or Fairies). Lay in your bed completely relaxed. Close your eyes and visualize God by you as if you were having a conversation. These are the words you can possibly say to him:” I love you, I think you are beautiful, we have shared so many wonderful moments, I love everything about you. God shine the light upon my soul and the guardian angles give me peace and harmony. Give me clarity, honesty and love that I deserve” Spiritual Baths: Fill your bathtub with some lavender oil and luke warm water. Place some sandalwood incense somewhere in your bathroom for you to get a sense of touch. Cover your eyes with a white cloth that is dipped in lavender oil. Relax and release the tension and the negative energy which maybe causing conflicts in your life
