Deepening Your Meditation
Throughout the day, watch your thoughts. As your meditation process becomes firmly ingrained in your life and you can easily slip into the awareness of being the “detached observer, you will find that observing your thoughts becomes more natural.When you recognize that you are creating thoughts or feelings that are negative or wasteful, remind yourself that you are a peaceful and powerful soul and the creator of your own experience. Give your mind a powerful/loving thought to ponder, not only while you are sitting for meditation, but also while you go about your day. Exercise your right as a self-sovereign soul to choose the thoughts you create.
This simple process will enhance your meditation later on in the day. Holding thoughts such as “I am a peaceful soul” or “I am a soul using my inner divinity to guide the external world of action” while you are engaged in the world, will actually carry over into your ability to create and sustain peaceful, positive streams of thought in your meditations. Have faith in yourself, faith in the intellect that you are the rudder of your ship, following the directions of the Highest on High whom you have connected with during your “remembrance”.
Just as your remembrance empowers your ability to be peaceful, to make good decisions, to act from self-respect, and to respond rather than react while engaged in life, so your awareness while engaged in life can impact your meditation when you remember the elevated thoughts and contemplations that make you feel good about yourself.
Chances are if you are experiencing obstacles during meditation it is because you are experiencing stress during the day due to negative thoughts and feelings. When you notice this, challenge those negative thoughts, stop them, turn yourself around, and give yourself the chance to regroup your thoughts to create a better feeling and thinking mode as you about. This will make moving into a meditative state easier whenever you choose.
