I have written a meditation

You may have noticed I have been dabbling with Podcasts.  I don’t know if I am getting better, but I am getting more comfortable.  The first one’s I recorded I read almost verbatim from the book I found them in.  The book is linked to the page the podcast is available through.  (Aside: Soon I need to review how podcasts show in each application to find what additional information I need to include.  I’ve given proper credit and I very much enjoyed the books I’ve listed.  I do hope others have the same opportunity.)

As I continued to find meditations that have made a difference in how I feel about life, about myself, about my circumstances, I have been reading and recording them into my podcast feed, but I have been updating the language.  I have been adjusting the tone that I heard in the author’s writing.  I have been editing how much to include and adding a point of attention for the focus that I wanted to share.  This editing has only made me an editor.

The more I edited the pieces I presented the more I realized I may be ready to write my own meditations.  Today I did.  I recorded my meditation today as well.  I’ll do the sound editing in a bit, I just want to allow myself to be thrilled about this for a moment.  Writing my own, based on what I have gathered from others, following the path of the meditation genre I can only wonder if I am writing fan-meditations.  (LOL.  Sometimes I crack me up.)

So I will get the sound edit done and post this puppy, my baby, this new child of mine in the next couple of days.  I still have recordings from readings that I have not yet posted.  I can hardly keep up with myself.

Life is full and varied – to schedule anything with any certainty is sketchy at best for me.  But I continue to breathe and create and practise and exercise and breathe.

Shakti Gawain rocked my world with her book Creative Visualization.  She showed me a whole new reason to think.   I must have read that book three times the first year I found it.  I was ingesting her ideas.  I was growing into the whole idea of having a say in how my life progressed.  The idea is still ingenuous.  I am still awakening to this mode of living.  I am totally loving it, and still learning it.  Shakti Gawain blew open the doors for me of how I live my life.  She was the first to tell me in all seriousness that – If I think it, it will become.  It is a very powerful way to live.

When I first read Shakti Gawain’s works I had never encountered guided meditation.  I’m not sure I had considered meditation – guided or not – at all.   It wasn’t meditation to me.  It was…ideas to ponder.   Though Shakti may be a proponent of meditation, it was the affirmations she offered that I found myself grappling with.  For me affirmations are good.  Since then I have learned meditations are better.  I already had chanting and prayers imbedded in my buddhist practise so affirmations just loaded up my mental wheelbarrow.  Meditations allow me to unload the wheelbarrow and just sit in it.

This meditation – Running Energies – I have used from Shakti’s meditation, “Opening the Energy Centers”.    As I considered this meditation I also considered adjusting the information presented to include the chakras.  It would be an easy inclusion.  The more I thought of it though, I have to say Shakti is probably right in not stating or bringing in the specific chakras here.  Not everyone is  knowledgeable about chakras.  Those that are have varying degrees of Chakra understanding, knowledge and insight.  And then the final nail in the coffin (so to speak) came from an audio I found myself listening to a rather compelling argument of why we really don’t need to worry about chakras knowledge, chakra clearing, or  chakra management.  This link is not an affiliate link, as always, feel free to click-through at no cost to you or myself for an interesting take on our chakras and our belly buttons too.

Our whole body feels good for our energy clearing.  I do know, for myself, that to clear my own energies and to get my internal awareness flowing feels invigorating and delightful.  For this it is worth posting a meditation for Running Energies.  Maybe its exercise without even opening our eyes.

Enjoy, as you continue to breathe.

Bubble of Light

I have always liked the bubble affect in meditations.  This is the guided meditation that requests one to surround oneself with light and love and to relax in the safety and love of this bubble.  I love when the bubble is secure around myself how it will lazily drift above and I am not required to do any more than to just be, and to be in this bubble of love and light.

I tried to get that feeling across here.  This meditation is 11 minutes.

I hope you enjoy while you continue to breathe.

Opening to Love

This is my first recording. I have recorded this meditation for you. I needed to share what I find so helpful in my life. I hope you enjoy it, that it touches you, reaches you and that you will come back for more.
