“You are never alone or helpless. The force that guides the stars guides you too.“ -Shrii Shrii Anandamurti . When you shut up and meditate for even five minutes and start to really notice the thoughts that are squirreling around in your brain, it's rather..illuminating. . The goal is to quiet your mind of the chatter so you can connect to Source Energy and instead listen to your inner guidance. . Different ways to meditate. Basic meditation: sit comfortably, relax your face, close your eyes if possible. Gently release any thoughts that come into your brain and re-focus on your breathing. Keep your mind as clear and empty as possible and listen for intuitive hits that may or may not come through. . Options and suggestions: set a timer, light a candle and focus on it, use a mantra, do it first thing in the morning. Meditating is about receiving information from The Universe; setting intentions and praying are about sending information out to The Universe. Guided Meditation: virtually or in person. Chanting. Aside from being one of the most powerful tools in our consciousness-raising toolbox, meditation is a much-needed respite from the madness, and will help us from becoming a bunch of scatterbrained ding-dongs as we zoom around our brave, and extremely exciting, new world.
