Meditation Can Spiritually Deepen Relationships
When a relationship is deep, it is bathing in the ever-present waters of spirit. Meditation can both increase our capacity to swim in spiritually deep waters, and commune with like-minded souls in those depths.
When conscious of our expansive spiritual nature, whether we are in deep meditation, just returning from meditation to the everyday world, or feeling the joy of spiritual communion right while going about our everyday life, we come to know that we are essentially part of the same root-structure of God.
For example, an oak tree has multiple limbs, representing each of us. The limbs connect to the trunk, representing the one all-pervading spirit supplying energy to the limbs. And the trunk has a huge root system anchored in the ground, representing our Creator and Sustainer, providing all creation with the necessary elements for form and survival.
Meditation to consciously deepen relationships
Find a quiet and private place to sit in meditation. Fold your hands in your lap and close your eyes. Begin breathing evenly such as one count to inhale, and one count to exhale. Keep up this regular rhythm throughout your session without actually saying the numbers.
Regulated even breathing ties the body, mind, and emotions together as one harmonious unit. It allows the body to remain still and quiet while the mind remains awake and active.
Take advantage of this meditative state to fill your mind with thoughts of peace and send them out in waves to the creation. Allow your mind, emotions, and body to feel joy welling up from your spiritual depths. Enjoy. Be en-joined with all your loved ones in these moments. Dive deeply into your Source and come back up through the trunk of existence refreshed and feeling part of the wholeness of all.
Come back to your waking self slowly with thoughts of love for the depth and expansiveness you and others are, realizing none are separate, rather all are rooted in the Eternal.
Take a deep inhalation and slowly exhale. Open your eyes and stretch out. Go forth into your life peacefully and joyfully, feeling warmth in communion with all.
