Deep Meditation For Finding Your Spiritual Path.

Karen Kubicko Blog

How do you meditate?   There are thousands of ways.

The important thing is to not try. Trying stops the process of relaxing. Allow instead.

For me, meditating took a looooong time of:

The Keeper of the Threshold by Elihu Vedder 1897

trying …

reading about it …

trying …

giving up for a while …

reading some more …

trying walking meditation … (Felt silly to me-how can you meditate when you have to watch where you are going?)

giving up for a very long while again …

learning about guided meditation and self-hypnosis …

tried it nearly every day for a month …

and then one day, I got it.

I learned to really relax. To allow. To be okay when your mind starts to chatter (it could be messages that your guides are trying to get to you).

Then I remembered a past life where I taught a completely different kind of meditation. That day, I really got how it meditation worked. Sigh. Finally.

The best advice I ever read was that you can meditate for one minute.

A minute is easy.

Here is how: Focus on your breath. (And since I like to give my brain something to do …) I say to myself, “Breathe in love, breathe out fear” as I inhale and exhale. Just start with one minute.

The cool part of this short meditation is that you can do it anywhere – waiting in line, waiting for the microwave to beep, etc.

Try it. Take a minute. Let me know how it goes.

(I hope your attempts at understanding meditation goes faster for you. It took me years.)

  1. I tried it for one minute. I am a beginner. I have anxiety and am trying to find ways to meditate. As soon as I start focusing on my breath, my heart starts pounding hard. Any tips?

    • Hi Jo,
      I began this blog to coax myself into meditation practice. At this point, I’m still quite spotty. I find the one minute meditation works for me. I understand how meditation can trigger anxiety. It seems like a commitment, to begin with. One minute, randomly works quite well. It is especially useful when, in the spur of the moment, you have an impulse to make a self improvement. This is sometimes called “soul work”. Try 3 deep breaths, then slow deep breathing while vividly feeling what you wish to change. Then tell your self: I don’t need this experience any more – (so 3D). Mentally toss it away. Now begin a new cycle of deep breathing and visualize the Love – based emotion that will be your new reality.

      If you feel anxiety or self doubt, smile and feel your self bathed in self love.

      Lastly, sometimes I take in one deep breath and hold it – with a beautiful thought in mind.

      I know this is all a bit wordy. Trust your inner light to do what you feel is right for you.

      Sending my love and light to you.
