Meditation has been a long time calling me but I've never considered myself persistent enough or my practice deep enough.
This week alone I've been exposed to all kinds of meditation teachings, mantras, mudras, conversations, music, readings and people who embrace all these and willingly share their ways of actively taking ownership of this practice. After having a life altering experience a few years ago my perspective on life completely changed, I saw myself in a light I had never before, it was so bright and shocking I could barely handle it and my body and mind broke down in order to cope with my new reality. You could say I was awake and I was aware, I was channeling energy in a way that was far beyond what I ever imagined possible and it was all a bit too much to handle. The integration process after taught me to take life slowly, to stop and be present and become conscious of my actions, in a way to practice an active mediation throughout life. Fast forward a few years into the future and a lot has changed, my life, my job, my body, my friends, my surroundings but most importantly my internal world. The light seems to dim more and more often when I get lost in the swing of life and I often reminisce and wish to go back to that state of full immersion. I can't. So. This is where I stand today- looking into myself and hoping I can slowly continue to learn from my experiences, not just my past but from the constant search for that expansive place of consciousness. Closing my eyes in the middle of the day ~ listening to the signals along the way ~ responding to a calling from within 🕉 :
I've set a calling for myself to meditate daily for 11 minutes. I learned the Kirtan Kriya and I am incorporating that for at least 3 mins a day! How do you answer the calling to meditation? I'd love to learn new ways and even hold each other accountable so share if you feel called to do so 🖤
