MEDITATION FOR BEGINNERS

MEDITATION FOR BEGINNERS   By SpiritualDictionary.com 

Miriam (Teacher) – This lady has tried to get my name but she has not succeeded as yet, I am keeping that as a surprise. As you have been told the first thing to do in meditating is to learn to relax, for by learning to relax whenever you have a problem, you can withdraw to the center that you focus on for relaxing, it may be just for a few minutes, five minutes or whatever, but once you have mastered that technique you can do that at any time of the day. I am not saying that that should be your aim, but that it would be possible to do, so that if you had a problem that was say perhaps causing you to lose your temper, or your brain was running around in circles and you didn’t know what to do, then you could just withdraw to your little oasis and think for a while and relax. It may not solve your problem but at least you would not do anything hastily. Once you have decided that you are going to meditate on a regular basis, then I would stress what all who meditate are asked to do, and that is to make it at a particular time whenever you do it. It need not be every day for that would be very difficult for a beginner, but whether it is one day, five days, seven days, we think seven days is too much, even those who are learned more are saying, we think five days is enough. And it gives us two days to do something else, but to stress the fact that you should make it a certain time every day, one that is most convenient to you. A lot of ladies that are at home and have small children, have said that is impossible, but we reply it is never impossible for everybody has to go to the toilet, unfortunately you cannot always pick the time. But for those who are in business and have to go out, we suggest first thing in the morning But a lot of people find that that is the best time, others find tea-time, or last thing before going to bed, it matters not. But we are busy creatures here, and we like to know that if you are in earnest then we like to say well we like to go to so and so at such and such a time, for time that means nothing to us, it is us that have to adjust to your time. We don’t mind if we are teaching you, we enjoy it, but we must have a fair idea, I am not saying keep strictly to the minute, but within five to ten minutes and if you do it on a regular basis, and then find that one day you cannot do it on a particular day, then just send out your thoughts a little bit earlier, or as early as you can and we will pick up your thoughts, and we know that we can’t come and we can do something else. That is one thing, the next thing is that if you sit and meditate, please ask for protection, it will always be given to you once you are in touch with your guides or spirit or whatever, but until then if you sit and meditate, we would just ask you to ask for protection, and it will be given to you. It is just a precaution, it is very rare that anyone who is inexperienced has any trouble, it is the experienced ones that have the bother. There are many ways in which you can meditate, you can find books to read about it, you can ask the people here and they will tell you different ways, each person has something different, it does not matter, the main thing is to quieten your mind, where you can find this oasis where you can concentrate on and go there when you are in trouble, that is the main purpose of meditating. Once you have achieved that and you wish to continue in the movement, as we like to call it, then the way is open to you, but it is not necessary to come into the movement to meditate. To meditate is to make your life much easier. And for the young man on the left who is very troubled, I would suggest that he writes down the for and against, what he needs to do with his life, what it matters, the daily things that he needs to do and cross them off the list, count his assets and say, is this really necessary, and this applies to anyone who is in business, who is worried and has a lot to do, count your blessings and ask what your aims really are, are they necessary, are they necessary to do it in the time that you put on it, work your problems out as best as you can before you get all tied up and things become so big that you think that they are beyond repair, and that you will never surmount them, that is about all that I have to say tonight, we do not want to overload you with too much, or you may never come back again, and we are hoping that you will. There are many guides, many spirits who come here and some of them come just for laughter, they do not always come for teaching, and the children come and they love to come, so if you would and we would hope that you will come back again, learn your meditating, relax within yourself, and ask yourself when trouble looms ahead of you, is it really as big as I thought. Were the worries that I had yesterday, and thought they were insurmountable, I am getting a bit tongue tied even for a teacher, were they so big, and you will find the majority of times they were not so big. I will leave you now to think a bit, and to know that this circle here and the people in it and what goes on in this room is beyond count for the good that it does and the love that comes from within it. The blessings that flow and the energies that we take and distribute where it is needed, that is at the times that it is not directed anywhere special, and you will be told about that sort of thing later on, if you are interested. But for now I say goodnight, God bless you all, and may the light of the Lord follow you wherever you go. Geoff – Thank you.
