SPECIAL PURPOSE MEDITATIONS

 

Special Purpose Meditations may be used to shift the energy of situations and places.  For any special purpose meditation, begin by going to your special quiet practice place.  Write down your vision for your desired results.  Include sights, sounds, tastes, smells, and sensations.  Be as vivid and complete in your vision as possible.

 

Sit comfortably and quiet your breathing.  Be aware of Luke 12:32 (KJV):

 

It is the Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom.

 

Feel your heart slow and relax.  Feel your core pleasantly melting toward the floor.  Know that you are grounded in the Earth’s creative energies.

 

Extend your awareness from your heart, up through your mind, and up toward Heaven.  Feel yourself connect strongly with the Heavenly Source, and feel the Source Energy flowing down through you, comingling with the Earth energy that is rising. Now you are in your most creative space, or state of being.  Now bring your vision of a desired thing into your consciousness.  See the images, hear the sounds, taste the flavors, smell the fragrances, and feel the sensations of your desired reality.  Sit with this multisensory vision for a few minutes.

 

Know that your vision is now true.  Feel your gratitude.  Give thanks to God. Repeat this step whenever you think of the situation you want to be different.

 

PEACE MEDITATION

 

Now consider a Peace Meditation, a meditation directed at bringing peace, to yourself, to people, and to the Planet.   We live in times of much conflict in many areas.  Mass shootings and bombings shatter communities.  Nations disagree with nations, and supranational terror groups are claiming to be nations.  Even in the US, conflicts may seem to dominate at the highest levels of government.  Many yearn for personal, local, and global peace.

 

For your peace meditation, begin with contemplation or prayerful listening, using prayers such as this short prayer for peace, from the Church of England:

Gracious God,
We pray for peace in our communities this day.
We commit to you all who work for peace and an end to tensions,
And those who work to uphold law and justice.
We pray for an end to fear,
For comfort and support to those who suffer.
For calm in our streets and cities,
That people may go about their lives in safety and peace.
In your mercy, hear our prayers,
now and always.  Amen.

Now journal out your feelings.  Observe any change in your relationships over the next day and week.  And that’s Upbeat Spiritual Livingsm!

      Lily, I am so glad the meditation feels good for you. Try it every day for a while, or twice a day, and see if the World presses on you less. And let me know? Thanks so much for visiting and commenting.

    I’m going to try the breathing one tomorrow. Sounds neat! Sometimes when I pray I do it with images because it’s harder to think of words at times like that, so if I try the peace one, I might do it visually. That’s okay, right?

      Jeanine, great! Yes, prayer can be wordless, like with images only, and so can meditation. That’s wonderful. Let me know how the experiment goes? And thanks so much for reading my pieces and commenting.
