For the past year or so, Abraham has been strongly encouraging all of the seminar participants to “quiet your mind for 15 to 20 minutes every day”. It is practically the only process that they are touting. Once in a while, they mention older processes like doing lists of positive aspects or reaching for a better feeling thought. At least that is the way that I am hearing what they are saying.
Part of their sales pitch for meditation is that it is the easiest and most effective way to release resistance, raise your vibration and connect with Source Energy. Last March, I decided to commit to meditating every morning as soon as I wake up. I set a timer for 18 minutes and lie in my bed under the covers while I listen to the ticking of a clock. I breathe in and out slowly and I do my best to quiet my mind. Sometimes I zone out, sometimes I see colors and sometimes I get messages. Sometimes there is a lot of my own chatter. Even though I wasn’t always sure of what exactly was going on at the beginning, I decided to stop analyzing and evaluating my performance and to simply trust that it was working.
Almost a year later, I can see and feel these benefits:
- I am less fearful.
- I have lost 23 pounds.
- I have reconnected with my creativity.
- I feel more lighthearted.
- I feel more confident.
- I feel more satisfied.
Ideas pop into my head during the meditation or later on during the day. I do my best to follow through with them. The results are usually satisfying. The best part of all of this is that I KNOW that I have the power of the Universe with me at all times. There is nothing to be afraid of. The Universe adores me. All of that divine support is always available to me and it is my choice whether or not to tap into it. I am choosing to lean in that direction more and more each day.
