|Meditation is one of the most essential keys to being successful on the spiritual path. It is your time to receive from God. As you open to receive, the divine blesses you with the attributes of the higher life you seek. As those who work with the aura know, meditation is how you can draw on the Divine Light to improve and enhance your aura and life. Yet many people find it difficult to get into an effective meditative state. It is often not easy to quiet the mind or let go of concerns and distresses. I would like to offer a few tips to strengthen and deepen your meditations.
First, meditation is not about making your mind blank. That cannot be done. The goal is to still the mind where you become receptive to the divine impulses. A key to get better at this is to focus the mind. Think of the mind as like a lens on a camera. It focuses the attention of your consciousness in a certain direction. In the aura meditations, your consciousness is first directed to your wonderful Higher Self—a magnificent point of light approximately 24 inches above your head. As you put your attention here and nowhere else, you leave the earth plane and enter in the spiritual dimensions of life. Your mind and consciousness are focused on the higher consciousness. This has the effect of quieting the mind. Then as you request the Divine Light, your attention moves from the Higher Self Point to the Divine Light you are receiving.
As the light is going to various parts of your aura visualizing the color helps to better tune into the light. Yet what is most important is to hold your attention on the divine consciousness that’s in the Light. If you are calling on the deep rose-pink of spiritual love, tune into the consciousness of love you are receiving. This is the transformation you seek. Here is where the change in consciousness is taking place.
In this moment, your troubles or worries are the furthest thing from your mind. You are in the presence of the living power of God and nowhere else. You have become one with the divine. It’s truly a sacred moment.
One or two deep meditations are more than enough to carry you through the day. When starting out I usually recommend once a day for 20 minutes. Some mistakenly feel that to deepen the meditative experience, more is better. This is not necessarily so. The key is not the number of times you are meditating in a day. The key is how deep are your meditations and how well are you applying the divine consciousness in your active life. Receiving the light is one thing, but applying the light you have received is quite another.
Those who are effective in their meditation truly have an aura that sparkles. The mental body is especially strong with various color rays of light, especially gold light. In the other hand, those who have difficulty entering in an effective state of meditation can sometimes have creamy mustard yellow in their aura indicating the inability to effectively focus. There can also be a light grey (not the deeper grey of worry) which is an indication of a weakness in this area. Working with the golden ray for dynamic power and the deep rose-pink for more love are very helpful to strengthen your meditative powers.
Take time to build your skill in meditation. Refuse to let the cares of the world distract you to the point that your meditations take a back seat to other activities. The rewards are enormous. Along with prayer, it is one of the most important spiritual tools you have and can take you extraordinary spiritual heights.
In Divine Light and Love,
