“No matter how I choose to experience my inner space, I find peace. At this center of peace, I am. I am the pureness and stillness of the center of my creative process. In peace, I create. In peace, I live and move and experience life. Because I keep myself centered in inner peace, I have peace in my outer world.”

– Louise L. Hay-

The first thing I do every morning before starting my day meditation!

This is a very special time of the day for me, as I honor everyone, and everything that is a part of all that I am!  This special time is quiet, and I feel totally connected to all that is.

My old cat Angel, gets up, goes outside and then returns back into the house and as I meditate she sits or lays at my feet touching me and purrs loudly before she settles in, zones out, and seems to go through her own meditation along with me.

Many times I have felt frustrated and pushed by her bothering me during my meditation, and because of this I had difficulty meditating as all of my focus seemed to be on what I didn’t want!

Today I joined into her meditation as I was doing mine and our connection was beautiful and fulfilling.

Upon completing our meditation, she stood up, licked my feet in gratitude, I scratched her back and she began her day as I began mine!

Today, what I learned from Angel, is that we are all truly related, we are all one provided that we allow it to be in our lives!

Thank you Angel for all that you are and all that you offer to me in every moment!

Peace, love, light and blessings!

Imagine the floor beneath you, the ceiling above you.
Bring yourself back to your center!

Now do a progressive relaxation meditation to relieve all stress, all tension, and instill confidence, calmness and total relaxation.

Close your eyes and let your eyelids go loose, limp and totally calm.
Take that calmness and move it down through your cheeks, your nose, and into your mouth. Notice how your tongue is resting on the roof of your mouth, and let that relaxed and calm feeling move down through your chin, your neck and down to your shoulders. From your shoulders move the relaxed and calm feeling through your upper arms, your elbows and down into your forearms and your hands. Notice that your hands are loose, limp and totally calm, let all tension and stress move out through your fingertips, moving out of your body, freely and easily. Take that calm, relaxed feeling and move it into your chest, and into your diaphram which controls your breathing. Notice how your breathing is easy, and clear. Breath in calmess, relaxation, and healing……..Breathe out all tension, and dis…..ease that exists in your body,………..Breathing in healing and health, breathing out tension and stress, Breathing in calmness and relaxation, Breathing out all tension and stress………………..Breathe in and breathe out moving that calm, relaxed feeling through your stomach, your pelvis, and down to your thighs, from your thighs to your knees, from your knees to the calves of your legs, from your legs to the tops of your feet, from the tops of your feet down to your toes. Notice how all tension, stress and uncertainty leave your body through your feet and enter into the floor, all tension and stress gone as you move that calm relaxed feeling from your feet to the back of your legs, your thighs and through your buttock. Now imagine a magic set of fingers gently massaging all tension and stress from your back as you allow the fingers to move vertebra, by vertebra, by vertebra, by vertebra up to your shoulder blades, notice how the magic fingers massage, and gently move all tension, stress and uptightness out of your body, massaging and moving, massaging and moving, and now gently massaging your neck, moving vertebra, by vertebra right to the base of your skull, and then let the magic fingers gently move over your head, massaging in clarity, confidence and relaxation as they dance across your head, into your forehead and back to your eyes, now opening your eyes, feeling, calm, relaxed and confident to move through the rest of the day, free of tension, gaining clarity, health and wellness with each step forward during your day.

A Positive Affirmation:

I know that I am loved, safe and protected as I journey through life. I have comfort and joy in my life. I embrace success and I am open and ready to manifest this now as I move forward cherishing each moment now.

Peace, love, light, blessings, togetherness and being to us all!

This is a neat story of how I took my first step towards meditation  in a very profound and somewhat embarrassing way!
In the circle of enlightened beings I was informed that my first step towards enlightenment would be to shut down my thoughts and mind. I knew when I finally managed to shut down my thoughts and mind it would lead to the stillness, a place of knowing, and I would instantly know that I had found enlightenment, the true me. Initially I had a lot of difficulty finding this enlightened place and I knew this was something that I would not be able to do on my own, so I researched and looked for mentors (those who knew).

After all, I am no dummy and I can always find the instructions and way when I do my own research! ! So I looked through telephone book, reference materials, talked to enlightened beings, found a store, a healing center, and other places that know about such things, bought movies, and books that I optimistically believed would lead me to this place of excitement, mystery and enlightenment. I had all of the tools at my fingertips and I found what I thought I was looking for and began.

I followed the instructions and I became so totally possessed with getting it that I totally missed it and headed back to the drawing board again. I researched and found that there was a group to assist me and I knew it would lead me to this enlightened state where all would be totally clear and my mind and brain would be totally void so that I could finally find the stillness that exists within me. This was meditation!

Finally the day of the mediation course for me to find my enlightenment was to begin so I entered into a group of total strangers, sat on the floor in the most uncomfortable of positions and I was ready to begin. I grabbed a pillow to cushion my aching body after having spent endless hours during the day working at a desk. I then began by following the instructions to place my body into a contorted position that was totally out of reach for the average human being, let alone me who was somewhat heavy and out of shape.

With legs crossed, hands facing palms up resting on my lap, uttering totally foreign sounds to clear my mind, my brain was screaming “ouch” because my body hurt, but I fearlessly moved forward, because enlightenment was my goal. The physical pain and discomfort of my body I believed to be only a minute part of my being, so my brain kicked in and told me not to worry. I believed that I needed to have physical discipline and be in shape. After all, this is a side benefit of the enlightenment process. Wow, not only will I become the enlightened person I am seeking, I will be physically fit at the same time! What more could I ask for?
As I was sitting uncomfortably in this position ready to begin the trip to my true self, my inner being, my thighs began to ache, but I needed to ignore the aching thighs, how could my mind be clear when my body was aching like this? So I proceeded by giving myself the direction that in order to be enlightened I would just need to put aside the discomfort and it would go away. Sure enough within a short period of time my thighs had no feeling left, they were totally numb and I couldn’t think of a more appropriate time to shut off my mind and be still and silent. I entered the void briefly!

The more that I attempted to shut off the little messages that were flowing through my brain the more that I was thinking “How on earth am I going to be able to stand up when this is done”………but I persevered. Finally, after I analyzed my families needs, the grocery list, the things that I forgot or didn’t have time to do during the day, got past the embarrassment hearing the foreign sounds that were coming from me. I looked around the room and noticed that I was not the only one whose body was jumping and vibrating because the nerves had shut down in my thighs. Then, just briefly, I caught a fleeting glimpse of the stillness of my mind.………………….

I had arrived! With this recognition, panic set in……… this was foreign and being a creative person, I began to create other things to occupy my still mind, because I just was not used to this foreign place. My body then decided that this position was the ideal position to allow the gases that had been building in my system over the past 12 hours with an escape route. This began with my stomach gurgling, my fingers twitching, and my mind tuning into the messages and signals that my body was sending me. My brain informed me that within moments the gas building up would erupt and the room would no longer be still, but everyone may be running for cover.

I justified that enlightened beings could cope with a little gas, and during the time I was still attempting to get to the silence of my mind. I even prayed for the escaping gas to erupt without a sound. The gurgles begin to move lower, and the moment of knowing was about to escape. Would it be silent and smelly or would it be loud without a scent. At this time embarrassment set in, and I become aware of a back-up plan that snuck into my not so still mind.

I tensed up, concentrated on not letting the eruption escape and become more aware of the total numbness that was now encompassing my physical being. Finally the gas escaped, quietly creating a smelly vapour that permeated at least a five foot radius. My thoughts begin to justify the event……the other people were unconscious, would not notice, after all their minds were still Wrong!!! I searched the room and notice nostrils flaring, individuals shifting to escape the quiet but deadly escaping gas, but they were all pretending that the erupting gas was not affecting them. After all they found the stillness of their minds……Right!
Finally the group was finished and it was time to stand up. Fear rushed in as I attempted to unfold my contorted body, while I was hoping that the released gases had not clung to my clothing. I stood up, stretched the muscles in my arms, legs sniffing and as I had hoped the gas no longer lingered. I then smiled innocently at those around me who were opening their eyes, made eye contact with them, nodded in approval, talked about how wonderful my brief encounter with the still mind was and quickly left knowing that the ordeal was over. As I left the building questions continued to formulate in my brain, and I intuitively knew that meditation may be the road of enlightenment for some, but I knew it was definitely not the road for me. I left the building laughing loudly as people walked by in their enlightened state, I felt much lighter physically knowing that when you have gas it will pass. I never returned to the meditation class.

So it was back to research on the road to enlightenment. Many years have evolved since my search for my enlightenment through meditation began and many experiences have brought me back to the memory of this meditation class for enlightened beings. I knew that some day this experience would provide me with insights that would allow me to access necessary information to assist me on my journey to enlightenment.

What I learned from this experience is:
1. Watch what I eat before I attend a meditation class.
2. Each life experience is useful for learning what I do and don’t want in my life.
3. Laughter can move me forward.
4. It’s O.K. to laugh at myself.
5. You can find enlightenment in the strangest places.
6. From every thought I create an experience.
7. Don’t discount meditation because of gas.
8. When I want something and my intent is clear, I will create it.
The meditation experience did not work for me, my expectations were of a serene, comfortable, calm and loving space where my physical body would not create such havoc with my mental, physical, emotional and spiritual movement forward.

So it was back to the drawing board and moving onto the next step which would lead me forward to enlightenment.
Peace, love, light and blessings
