Did you know that some people actually think that meditation is evil? What can be so evil about relaxing an putting your mind elsewhere? Some people say they can't relax enough to meditate. Well I'm a person who is rather hyper....have a hard time sitting still and I can still do it. You just have to quiet your mind but....don't try to hard. I have used audio Cd's to meditate or relax and that can be helpful also. I have also used relaxation Cd's such as the sound of a beach with waves or the sound of rain.
I am at the point where I can meditate and take myself to a very far away place. I often see myself as a Native American woman and for some reason I always seem to go back to that lifetime. One time I had this experience where I was meditating and I found myself in this Indian campground. It was very early morning and I was walking around the camp and it really felt like I was there. It was still a bit dark and everyone was a sleep. I looked around and I saw a bowl that looked like it was a hollowed out rock and I knew when I looked at it that it was used for grinding up special herbs for healing. Without really giving it any thought I knew that it was used by a Shaman and he was teaching me to use herbs to heal. I had the feeling that woman were not supposed to learn the methods but he was teaching me anyhow.
At other times I find myself in this Native American experience gliding down a river in a canoe. I'm not alone, there is a man there with me. I'm leaning against his bare chest. We are peaceful and relaxed. I think this is as much a vision as it is meditation. I have no doubt in my life that I lived this lifetime. I have so many memories of it and other lifetimes as well.
In the past I had Reiki treatments. Reiki is energy healing. It was a very spiritual experience and I'd see visions during that time as well.
Once while I lived in NM I was listening to music. All of a sudden I found myself in this other place where the air was black and full of these glittery particles that were sort of suspended in the air. It's difficult to explain in a way that people can understand. You sorta have to live it to understand it.
If you want to try this just clear your mind. Don't have any expectations. Just relax and see where your mind leads you. You can even try a past life regression cd which to me is just a deeper form of meditation. You may be surprised at what you see. :)
That's it for now. Y'all have a blessed day.
