We know about the plants and animals, animate and inanimate. But there are unseen dimensions accessible in meditation to help us solve problems and gain insight.
Unless we spend time in deep meditation we may never be able to make use of the expanded dimensions. Meditation allows us to go deeper into our thoughts, than we might while awake and doing work or chores. In meditation we stabilize the body and peel back the layers of mind by asking questions and reviewing thoughts that come to mind. Then we continue to repeat this asking and receiving process for as long as possible.
It is handy to keep a journal alongside you while meditating, so you can quickly write out new insights and ideas. It is similar to writing out a dream when first waking up, but the insights from deep meditation are very logical and not symbolic. You really see the path to tread to get to your goal. It is cause and effect in full force.
Whenever I am faced with a dilemma I sit in meditation and contemplate the situation asking for new ideas to come to mind. While waiting for the information to come to me I listen to the Holy Spirit vibration, also called the Om, Holy Naam, and other names. In this way I am emptying my judgmental mind and creating space to view new ideas and information.
Practice makes perfect in meditation as in any endeavor. Diligent practice sitting and listening to the celestial sounds breaks attachment to the idea there are just the earthly dimensions for our use.
We are opened to the sight of a vast array of scenarios and options in the space where there are no horizons holding us back.
