Don’t panic, everything is alright.
So - one of the most asked questions I get is:
“How do I know I’m doing it right?” …
As in meditating right.
That is one of the sweetest things about having a proper technique.
The breath is wonderful, apps like Headspace and Insight Timer are wonderful -
But a valid technique will actually teach you how to use it as you use it,
It'll give you the experience you need to get where you want to go.
And the breath and apps and much of meditation teaching aren't so good at doing that.
Ascension is - and since I have you here, you might be interested in a course I’m doing?
I promise it'll be well worth your while.
But! Back to the question:
What should you be experiencing?
Well - this is very subjective and best explained with you, in person, and not in an email like this.
Those times when you’re present, perhaps you’re doing dishes, perhaps you’re taking a bath at the end of a long day.
Perhaps you’re staring into a cup of tea, out the window and taking in the view.
That moment where you are gazing into the flames of a roaring fire …
You are at rest, relaxed ... and yet awake, aware and content in that, feeling self-contained, present to your own sense of being and presence.
Perhaps quiet, perhaps not, tuned in, all is well - all is as it should be.
And then there are the meditations where it’s the opposite.
There are so many thoughts!
For that is simply your body letting go, healing the stresses of the day, “defragging”.
Meditation can be both, at the same time - as long as you don’t fight your thoughts.
There is no need. No need at all.
Meditation means you become more aware, it isn’t about stopping your thoughts.
It’s about shifting your judgement off them.
It’s about non-resistance to what is.
Acceptance of this moment, just for this moment.
Fascination and familiarisation with everything in this moment in time.
When you don't fight, you can rest.
When you rest, you can watch and notice the unchanging part of your inner experience.
That is worth it's weight in gold.
And that is all I’m going to say on the matter.
You’ll just have to close your eyes and gently explore for yourself!
But do let me know if you have any questions.
I love to help.
That Ascension course that I fully recommend you learn because it makes everything so simple, and obvious?
