A Guided Raja Yoga Meditation


As you prepare for this meditation, make sure you are sitting in a comfortable, quiet area. Your back is straight and supported by the seat you are in,  you are alert, and you have created a deep sense of physical and mental relaxation through initially harmonizing your mind and body through deepening your breath.

Imagine that the room you are sitting in is completely empty and that nothing exists outside of this room.  With nothing to distract or pull on your attention, gently keep your eyes opened or closed, and turn your attention to the softness of your inner world – to the detached observer – the eternal you- the consciousness without a body – the true being – who is the witness of all the comings and goings of the scenes & roles of life. 

As your awareness of this eternal being who is you –  grows –  the more you will feel in control of your thinking.  And as you surrender to this awareness –  you will enter a deep experience of your true nature- which is peace. As you move closer to letting go and merging inward, you may still be aware of the  thoughts moving across the mind. Choose not to focus on the thoughts, just let them pass by as clouds moving across a silent sky.   As you stabilize as the kind, loving, detached observer, these thoughts that appear like clouds moving across the sky of your mind will finally slow down and fade into the background.  So for this time, choose not to pay attention to the thoughts…so you the soul can settle into  peace, just peace…  Allow peace to wash away everything that you presently experience to be the physical aspects…your name, your gender, your role, your personality, your body, and your relationships…

For the next  few moments, feel what it feels like to  have no name, no position, no gender,  you are purely a shining point of light, sparkling like a star.  With the power of this concentrated focus of the point of light, fly above your body and feel that you are floating – hovering above it, completely free, untethered, unlimited.

Realize you are an unlimited spirit  separate, but combined with your body which serves as your vehicle in the physical world.  Now you are entering a different dimension, beyond the physical. You have entered the dimension of pure light.

You are floating far above the sky to a place of complete silence and stillness.  In this place of silence, you meet another Being of Light, the purest, Highest on High – the Source of Spiritual Peace, Love, and Light.  This Benevolent One welcomes you and encourages you to receive as much peace and love as you wish.  You feel yourself being filled with gentle, peaceful love.  You are being recharged, realigned, and ignited with Light.   Soak this Light into yourself.   Stay here for as long as you can or as long as you wish.  And then very gently allow yourself to float back down to your room and into your body and fill each and every cell with this gentleness, this light, and this peace.  You are now once again back in the world of sound, the 3-dimensional world of form!

This is a journey of the mind which you can take at anytime to recharge, renew, and purify. The more you immerse yourself in this dimension of light, your original Home~ with the Highest on High, the clearer and happier you will feel.  You have a right to this.  Find a quiet spot in your home where you can withdraw to each day into the spiritual dimension and fill up.  This will improve your relationships, your attitude, and even bring more peace into the world around you.  When you fill from the Spiritual Source, you will find your heart is more loving and accepting of others and  situations you find yourself in. You will get the bigger picture and accept life just the way it is!!!
