The Holy Spirit permeates every atom of creation, enlivens and nourishes all with radiant energy. The Holy Spirit also speaks to us in meditation via the peaceful subtle sound that comforts us.
When we perceive the emanation of the Holy Spirit we are uplifted in our own spirit and mind. Worrisome thoughts leave or dissolve, replaced by gentle peace.
Upon sitting for meditation, keep your body still, eyes closed, hands folded in lap. Wrap yourself in a light shawl if necessary, and say some prayers of appreciation for the chance to live on earth.
In the quiet space that overcomes the atmosphere surrounding you, listen for the entrance of the Holy Spirit, which comes as a spring rushing down a mountainside into your consciousness.
Listen. Listen. Hear the leaves on the trees rustling in the distance from the higher peaks around you. This is how the Holy Spirit makes its presence known.
The gifts of the Holy Spirit are received at this subtle level as peace and harmony in body, mind, emotion. In the very fine vibration a swelling, a rising comes to consciousness, to waking awareness, that gives us the answer to questions on our mind.
With a quiet body the mind is not distracted in outer action and fully opens its windows and doorways to receive the wind, the air of spirit that refreshes and replaces negativity.
When imbibed in the Holy Spirit there is no room for negative thoughts, as they are crowded out and overcome by the higher frequency of clarity and good. Listening to the Holy Spirit lends goodness to the moment and lifts our mind into a state of overview. We can see our problems as if we are an observer going over them in an airplane.
At these moments of crystal clarity we see what needs to be done to improve the situation viewed. More so, we are filled with the energy to resolve problems for the higher good, the long range good without being partial in any direction.
Meditation is an opportunity to listen to the Holy Spirit, rise above our personal situations, take a good look as if an observer, then come back to daily life with the knowledge that we can solve what is bothering us.
Immersion in the Holy Spirit may seem esoteric, but as with all that Spirit provides us, it points us on a practical path to living a life that keeps us in harmony in our mind, and with others, and the world.
