Take the energy brought forth from meditation and make change in the world. Carry out the resolves of your heart, do what is best for yourself and those in your life making the world a better place.
To begin, each meditation session can be divided into several sections. I like to think of them as supplication, prayer, contemplation, appreciation, and application. For instance, by including different aspects in your time for meditation in the evening you can do a mental evaluation of the day and plan for the morrow.
You can decide what good came of your actions during the day, and how to change if necessary. It is a good time to fearlessly face the more difficult issues head on in a calm and peaceful manner.
Beginning each meditation by asking your Higher Self for favors or help with resolving issues leaves room in the rest of the meditation time for ideas to float to the surface on how to take action.
Following a request for help a period of quiet and sincere prayer, perhaps using a rosary or mala for your praying as shown in the photo, purifies the mind and settles the heart into a receptive mode, for easing into the highest resolve to your issues or carrying out a plan that has come to mind.
The period of quiet time that follows prayer is the heart of meditation.
Now is the chance to visit the inner recesses of yourself and enjoy the peace that comes of a receptive mind willing to do what is needed for the greatest good. Contemplation and quiet meditation give you the chance to be still in body while thinking over issues on your deepest level.
Thoughts of appreciation energize our body to carry out the direction from our Source that arises from deep within, accessible during our quiet time of meditation.
And what good is meditation if we don’t put the new directives from our cleared mind into action?
If we each listened to the Voice of God within and went forth in that direction we’d really create a heaven on earth right now.
