BASIC MEDITATION and LEARNING TO LISTEN to YOUR SPIRIT GUIDES
An easy way to start on your path of self-discovery is through daily meditation. Following is a simple guideline for basic meditation:
Get in a comfortable position, somewhere quite and where you will not be disturbed. Find a position that you can be comfortable in for up to an hour. Start off slow about fifteen minutes a day and work up slowly to an hour or whatever you discover is your top amount of time for a good mediation session.
Put on some soft instrument music.
Ask Archangel Micheal to surround you in a white light of protection. If you do not believe in or want to use an Archangel then call upon Hecate or another Goddess or God to protect you while meditating.
Take three deep breaths completely filling your lungs on the inhale and emptying them on the exhale. Pick a word to allow to escape slowly through your lips on the exhale. This helps to ease the mind and body away from everyday life into your meditation zone. Some people say “OM” and some another sound. I use the word relax. While you are doing the deep breathing clear your mind of mundane everyday cares and worries.
After the cleansing breaths, go back to your normal breathing pattern and for a few breaths imagine your feet are connecting to Mother Earth and putting roots down. To do this imagine little roots coming out of the bottom of your feet growing down through whatever is in the way between you and Mother Earth. After you picture your roots getting to Mother Earth allowing them to grow into her about six inches deep.
Once you have grounded yourself then open yourself to connecting with the Universal whole. To complete the circle with the Universe lay your hands palms up either on your legs or extended them over your head. Imagine the Universal energy coming down through your hands flowing through you into your grounded feet then escape out of the bottom of your feet and going upward to meet with the Universe again.
Meditation is a good way to connect and be able to start listening to your Spirit Guides. You may ask your spirit guides questions but do not expect answers immediately sometimes it may takes days, weeks or even months for the answer to be come clear to you. Do listen to your gut feeling about something or someone and/or the voice that may pop into your head all of a sudden with the answer you have been seeking. These are some of the ways our spirit guides talk to us.
