What an incredible experience: I had this meditation experience tonight…. I have had similar ones in the past.
I begin slowly breathing deep within my belly and then slowly releasing the air through my nose. After several times of breathing in and releasing the air out, I begin to feel as if I am no longer present inside my body. I am outside of the body and I see ME, …..sitting on the back of a very large bird. Together the bird and I start to fly. We fly incredibly high through the open sky and little by little the Earth becomes less visible.
It is now that I let go of every earthly attachment. With the help of the bird, we are free to be and to go where We have never been before. The joy of freedom from absolutely everything is extraordinary. There is so much love in the air and an incredible feel of freedom from every earthly restriction that one can imagine. It is just pure tranquility, joy and emancipation.
Together the bird and I are among EVERYTHING and EVERYBODY… it is like nothing is separate but all together as one. I see my deceased mother like she is present right here next to me….none of my deceased relatives or friends seem dead, but quit alive and sharing in the diversion of my freedom. There are no verbal greetings, but rather a warm wave of connection between all of us. The colors surrounding all of us are incredible, almost indescribable due to the lack of earthly recognition and existence.
Now….. Slowly and gently the bird and I begin our lengthy descent to Earth. There is joy and warmth in my heart, a sense of rejuvenation, and an amazing amount of serenity. I know that this is a true experience… no I was not asleep…. Yes it is me… and no I am not always blessed with such beautiful travels, but when I am …it is heavenly. ♥️
Sorrowfully for many people, earth life seems disheartening, stressful, depressing and valueless. This view or outlook can only be changed by the viewer himself/ herself and the change takes time and work.
So how does one change their view on life. I challenge you with the following.
While sitting in silence, alone, let’s go inside our Being and use our mind to IMAGINE.
Begin to IMAGINE, imagine an absolute perfect world…. Making it exactly as you desire. Now Sit here in this perfect world for awhile…..make it as beautiful, peaceful and calming as you wish. Do not let anything or anyone disturb you in your imaginary world. ……
Now, come back to this world and ask yourself the following questions.
“ What made that world so perfect? Was there anything in the perfect world that I could possibly bring into my living world or eliminate from my present world? “
The challenge is….
Everyday for five or ten minutes, close your eyes and sit in silence. Imagine yourself living in a perfect world.
It is a positive way to release worries, dark moments or memories and relieve stress. Eventually you will begin to implement positive change into your true living life. ♥️
