Meditation or contemplation is one of the many spiritual practices that we can do. It is a turning within, or looking within, or introspection to find God or peace, love, rest, and more. It can be the finding of the "kingdom of God" or "consciousness of God" within us. It can be feeling the Presence of God within.
Meditation can be of great benefit to our lives, including the healing of our bodies, and far more. Meditation goes by many names, such as, contemplation, reflection or introspection.
Jesus said that the kingdom of God is within us. (The Bible) The consciousness of God is within us. The mysteries of God are within us. Let us go within (more) and find (more of) this kingdom, this consciousness, and these mysteries; and go within and find a greater rest, relaxation, peace, joy, and enlightenment.
The word "introspection means "to look within", so meditation is "looking within," or "turning within" and "listening within."
Prayer and meditation can compliment each other, so we may use them together, along with mantras and affirmations. In prayer, the emphasis is talking with God; whereas, in meditation, the emphasis is listening to God or the voice of God within. Meditation can also be for feeling the Presence of God within.
Some good statements or "mantras" we can use are:
Peace, be still and know that I AM God.
(The Bible, Book of Psalms) or
Be still/ and know/ I AM/ (your) God.
Where God is, there I AM.
Where I AM, there God is.
I AM the Presence of God.
I AM the Presence of Light.
I AM the Presence of Love.
In meditation, we practice the stilling of our body, and the stilling of our intellectual mind or mental body so the higher mind, the mind of Christ or Buddha, or the mind of God may come through. Stillness can help bring us to have a greater health, happiness, and higher consciousness. Meditation can help us to develop the gifts of the Holy Spirit; especially, the gifts of knowledge, wisdom, and discernment (of spirits).
In meditation we may receive progressive inspiration or revelation, and that is primarily how this website is being built. I, William Star, desire to be the heart, head and hands of the ascended masters or the great saints of heaven, and my "continual question" to them is: What do you want on this website? I strive to make a "good attunement", get some revelation or inspiration, and then you see this website, including this page on meditation. I can assure you that I do not get one great revelation, but small revelations or inspiration that gradually add up to what you see on this page and this website. Furthermore, I am continually revising and improving what I get.
Meditation should be natural and easy . Let go, let it flow and enjoy it. Practice makes perfect. Practice brings progress. The proof is in the practice.
Meditation can help us to have:
greater light, love, life and laughter,
health, happiness, harmony, and higher consciousness.
Meditation should be relatively:
easy, enjoyable, energizing, and effective,
relaxing, rejuvenating, regenerating and revitalizing.
Things go better with meditation!
Preparation for Meditation
Find the best place or most conducive place to meditate. Find a comfortable chair or do a comfortable cross-legged posture on the floor or carpet, or sit on the ground in nature. It is generally good to meditate in nature whenever we can.
Generally, we turn off all phones, electronic equipment, etc. except for a timer if we want to time our meditation or meditate only for a certain time -- such as, 15 minutes.
If there is other people in the house, it may be good to inform them that we will be meditating and to respect our privacy or meditation time.
It is generally good to set certain times for meditation, generally in the morning and in the evening.
Prayer before Meditation
We may pray or call to God, Archangel Michael, and other heavenly hosts to give us divine direction and protection during our meditation, and at all times.
Saint Germain's Teaching on Meditation
"It will be my pleasure and privilege to teach you the use of these Higher Laws, and their application will enable you to release True Wisdom and bring about All Perfection.
"The first step to the control of yourself—is the stilling of all outer activity—of both mind and body. Fifteen to thirty minutes—at night before retiring and in the morning before beginning the day's work—using the following exercise—will do wonders for anyone—who will make the necessary effort.
"For the second step:—make certain of being undisturbed, and after becoming very still—picture and feel your body enveloped in a Dazzling White Light. The first five minutes—while holding this picture—recognize—and feel intensely—the connection between the outer self and Your Mighty God Within—focusing your attention upon the heart center—and visualizing it—as a Golden Sun.
"The next step is the acknowledgment:—'I now joyously accept—the Fulness of the Mighty God Presence—the Pure Christ.' Feel—the Great Brilliancy of the 'Light' and intensify It—in every cell of your body for at least ten minutes longer.
"Then close the meditation by the command:—I am a Child of the 'Light'—I Love the 'Light'—I Serve the 'Light'—I Live in the 'Light'—I am Protected, Illumined, Supplied, Sustained by the 'Light,' and I Bless the 'Light'.
"Remember always—'One becomes—that—upon which he meditates'—and since all things have come forth from the 'Light'—'Light'—is the Supreme Perfection—and Control—of all things.
"Contemplation and adoration of the 'Light' compels Illumination to take place in the mind—health, strength, and order to come into the body—and peace, harmony, and success to manifest in the affairs of every individual—who will really do it, and seeks to maintain it.
"All the way down the centuries—in every age, under every condition—we are told by all who have expressed the greater accomplishments of Life that—the 'Light' is Supreme—the 'Light' is everywhere—and in the 'Light'—exist all things.
"That Truth is just as true today as it was a million years ago. As far back as there is any record of humanity, the Wise and Great Ones of all ages are portrayed with a radiation of 'Light' about them—emanating from the head and body itself.
"This 'Light' is Real—just as Real as the electric lights in your homes. The day is not far distant—when machines will be constructed to reveal the emanation of—'Light' about every individual—to the physical sight of any one—who cares to observe it. Such a machine—will also show the contamination—or discoloration—that becomes a cloud around the—'Light' of God—which the personal self generates—through discordant thought and feeling. This—and this only—is the way by which the energy—of the Great Life Stream—becomes polluted.
"If you will practice this exercise faithfully and—feel it in every atom of your mind and body—with deep, deep intensity—you will receive abundant proof—of the Tremendous Activity, Power, and Perfection—that abides and is forever active—within the 'Light.' When you have experienced this—for even a short time—you will need no further proof. You become your own 10
proof. The 'Light' is—The Kingdom. Enter into It and BE— at peace. Return to the Father's house. After the first ten days of using—this exercise—it is well to do it three times a day—morning, noon, and night.
"We often hear the complaint: 'Oh! I cannot give all that time.' To any who are of that opinion, I wish to say simply this:
"The time the average person spends in criticising, condemning, and blaming—people, conditions, and things—for not being something other than they are—if occupied with this recognition and use of the 'Light'—will make heaven manifest on earth—for the individual who dares to try and has determination enough to maintain it. Nothing is impossible. The 'Light' never fails.
"The 'Light' is God's Way of creating and maintaining Order, Peace, and Perfection throughout His Creation. Every human being on this earth can have all the time he wants in which to do this—when his desire to do it is intense enough. The intensity—in the desire itself—will re-order the world of people, conditions, and things so as to provide that time—if he earnestly wishes to use it for his upward climb. No person in the world is an exception to—That Law—for the intense desire to do anything constructive—when it becomes intense enough—is the God-Power that releases the energy necessary to create and express the thing desired.
"Everyone has the same supreme privilege of contact—with the All-Powerful Presence of God—and it is the Only Power that—ever did—does now—or ever will—raise the personal self and its world—above earthly discord and limitation.
"My Beloved Son, try this with great determination and know—God in You is Your Certain Victory."
from the book, Unveiled Mysteries by Godfre Ray King
