I always think I’ve made it when I enter that space of conscious quiet. There are no pressing demands, there are no worries about things I must do, there are no worries about things I must fear, there is only the present, the here and now.
Taking the time to be still and quiet is hugely important to my work as a medium and it’s great for my well-being. I’m able to project myself to wherever I want to be. Today, I was on a mountain top, looking out upon a sunset and the ocean crashing below. A gentle breeze was swirling around me.
This gave way to a beach with crashing waves and palm trees waving in the breeze. Then it all turned into fragments of light and an illuminated doorway, which kept eluding me as I walked toward it.
You can go anywhere you want in meditation. Just put your mind there and there you are. Sometimes, I go to familiar places like my parents living room. Other times I head far away. I always come back refreshed and rejuvenated. Any fear, stress or anxiety I’m holding onto from my day is gone. When I return, it is just me and the here and now.
If you are working on development of your intuition, meditation is a great place to start. Once you learn to quiet all of the clatter going on in the physical, you can download messages from the non-physical much more easily. You will be able to distinguish the voice.
Even if you’re not working on intuition or spirit communication, meditation has tons of wonderful effects on your body and your state of mind. You don’t need to sit for hours either. Start with five minutes and work yourself up to about half an hour. Once you make it a habit, you’ll look forward to it every day.
