Meditation, a Practice of Listening

When we sit quietly and focus on the breath we might also add a feature of asking for guidance. If we are able to then stop and listen to what comes, to allow it to flow, to hear intuition, we may be surprised to find what is available to us.

I was taught to practice a listening meditation that when guidance comes I am to write down the messages that come to me. We write so we can later see what might be messages from the Spirit vs the self. This practice has been profound and extremely helpful to me and many others that have chosen to practice this type of meditation. It can be as simple as setting an alarm on your phone for 5 minutes, asking for guidance in something specific or something unknown, and then stopping the asking, sitting quietly focusing on the breath, until messages come. As you hear anything enter the mind, write it down on paper or in a journal.

The more we practice meditation the more we get out of it.  Enjoy the Journey.
