Combining Prayer and Meditation

Combining Prayer and Meditation
This is a prayer for the beginning of your meditation session, to pave the way for peace and love to open your inner most heart.

First, take a few minutes to read an inspiring passage that uplifts you from a book of your choice, or move on to this prayer I've written.


"In love and grace within our Self
We live a blessed life on earth
While meditation's current flows
Carrying us through daily work.

The state of meditation brings
Awareness that we are on par
With our innate state of grace
Enveloping all both near and far.

One in heart, one in peace
Spreading over many lands
Standing together, not apart
Meditating on peace
All dear as friends."

Silent part of meditation

To begin the silent portion of your meditation, close your eyes and begin even and rhythmic breathing, such as one count to inhale, one count to exhale. Observe your breath while listening for your core vibration, also known as the eternal OM.

Finish your meditation with a deep breath, open your eyes and be thankful for having rested in your Higher Self. Record new insights from meditation in your journal for later review. Lastly, stretch out and go on with your day.
