Get Ready for the Journey
You didn’t arrive at your present life position suddenly — you have been slowly moving toward it all of your life. As a result, you can’t expect to move to a new state of consciousness in a few days or weeks. It is like going from California to New York. You can’t get onto a train in California and pop instantly over to New York. You have to ride through Kansas, Ohio and a number of other states. You may even decide to stay in Kansas for a while. It is your choice as to how far you want to go. The same is true when moving from one state of consciousness to another. You have to pass through various stages before you reach your destination.
What You Need
When you go on a journey of consciousness, pack lightly and leave your past behind. All you really need to take with you is a positive attitude, faith in your future and a strong desire to change. Anything else you drag along is extra. Slowly but surely, your past is going to fade away as you approach new horizons. There may be some bumpy roads and some stormy weather along the way — these are part of the process. But as you work through each challenge, you’ll come out stronger than before — more sure of yourself and your ability to take care of yourself.
You have the power of The Universe within you, and you can
accomplish anything you want if you set your mind to it.
Travelling into higher realms of consciousness requires a vehicle for the journey. Meditation is a time-honored technique that can take you into infinite dimensions of consciousness.
Many people say, “I’ve tried to meditate, but I just can’t seem to do it.” They seem to think that in order to meditate, they have to completely quiet their mind. Quieting the mind comes as a result of meditating over a long period of time, but any time you are looking within, you are meditating. There are many meditation methods. Some are passive and others are active — not in the physical sense, but in the sense that you actually do something during meditation. All of the meditations that you will find at this sight will help you develop spiritually.
Create a Space
First, prepare a space to use on a regular basis for your meditations. Doing this conditions your mind to relax and ascend to other dimensions. In time, just sitting in your meditation space will immediately relax you.
Your meditation space can be a separate room or small area in your home where you can sit with your eyes closed for at least a few minutes each day. Choose a clean, quiet place away from all distractions where you can sit on a chair or on the floor. If you use a chair, choose one that allows you to keep your back as straight as possible. If you sit on the floor, you may want to lean your back against something so that you can keep it straight. If you are too sick or weak to sit up, you can lie on your bed, but sit as soon as you are able.
You will need a shelf, table or surface of some kind. If you are sitting on the floor, an inverted carton or wooden crate will do. Place any, or all, of the following items on the surface that you choose:
- A plant or flowers
- An incense burner
- A candle
- A picture of someone who inspires you
- A picture of yourself
- A rock or some other object from a place in nature that you enjoy
- Anything you want that makes you feel good or that you feel the urge to use.
