Meditation quiets the mind and raises our energy vibration so we can connect with the spirit dimension. Most often our loved ones are trying to contact with us, however our minds are so filled with thoughts we fail to notice spirits subtle forms of communication with all that noise.
Aside from quieting our minds meditation helps us to raise our energy vibration so we can align with spirit energy. The physical dimension is a dense reality of matter. The spirit dimension is an existence of pure energy. When we meditate our conscious mind becomes silent and our body relaxes which releases the heaviness of stress and other negative emotions.
If you've never tried meditating it's not difficult to learn though it does take time. It's like exercising your mental muscle becoming the master of your thoughts and not allowing your thoughts to control you. In addition to silencing the mind you will also learn how to be physically still.
Follow the steps outline below advancing to the next step after master each. Be patient with yourself. You will succeed if you are consistent in your practice and let go of any expectation. Being anxious for results will block your communication, I know this from my own experience. Once I let go my sister walked right into my meditation. It was amazing! Don't give up, you can do this.
1. Find a quiet place where you will not be disturbed. Sit comfortably, but don't slouch and try to keep your body perfectly still. Close your eyes and allow your thoughts to roam. When a thought enters your mind acknowledge it, then let it go. Do this for fifteen minutes working your way up to thirty minutes before moving on to step two.
2. Return to your quiet place sitting comfortable as before and keeping your body perfectly still. Now you want to concentrate on your breath. Mentally count to three as you inhale then hold your breath to the count of three and then exhaling to the count of three. Continue this practice until you're able to meditate for thirty minutes before moving on to step three.
3. Return to your quiet place and take the same position though this time try to inhibit all thoughts. In the beginning you will find this difficult to achieve for more than a few minutes, but don't give up. Continue practicing until you're able to do this for thirty minutes.
Once you are able to sit perfectly still while inhibiting all thought for at least thirty minutes you will begin to experience connecting with other dimensions of existence and spirit. It's very important to let go of any expectations since this is a form of anxiety which will inhibit spiritual communicate. Be consistent in your meditation practice and you will eventually raise your energy vibration to connect with the spirit world.
