The purpose of all Meditation techniques is to give your awareness something single to lock into to. This allows it to be free from the habitual identifying with the mind and the personality, for the period of concentration.
By the way, never try to get rid of the personality, it is a hopeless task. Better to embrace all aspects of the psyche in a balanced and conscious way so as not to bury or suppress.
( This can cause problems down the track ) Also, avoid trying to find awareness, you never will. Just be at rest and it will reveal itself. It is something you sense or feel, rather then ‘see’.
Awareness is far more than you ever imagined it to be, and it contains all information of all that is. Of existence, and as you rest in awareness, this information is revealed to you. This awareness permeates the whole universe and beyond. One goal of meditation is to re-identify with your awareness rather than only your human form. To re-establish this awareness and once connected with this, become conscious that this awareness is not a result of the body, or any other physical cause – so it is therefor not limited to the body or the physical levels of the universe. This conscious/ awareness is limitless. It is one and the same thing with all of creation, there is no separation An enlightened being is someone who has merged his or her individual consciousness with all that is.
It is this awareness which is the ground from which grace grows, because when you meditate regularly you activate grace. And what you are doing when you meditate – you are being conscious of your center or you awareness.
With that in mind, I’d like to invite you to experience true meditation with me on the 21st of July in Brisbane.
Please join us for this 3 hour meditation retreat on Sunday the 21st of July. This Meditation Morning is for those who want to learn about Meditation or are wanting to take their practice to a deeper level. The morning will begin with a chanting session to really get the energy moving and the heart center open – for those who have never chanted before it really is an amazing experience and Im sure you find it joyful and uplifting The meditation format will be a guided body scan to ground and then a guided meditation. Bringing us strongly and firmly into the present and now. Taking more time to “sit” in this deep presence state will enhance our consciousness and awaken more energy and life force into our system. Creating more balance and spaciousness. It will be a casual experience with a warm and friendly group pf people. Meditation will run for 2.5 hours followed by discussion time afterwards where participants can share their experiences.
