Meditation; how to – is there a correct way to be doing this?

  
When it comes to meditation, I find that this is the portion of spirituality that most people struggle with. I have come to believe that this is because of all of the expectations and perceptions placed upon what meditation should be. Is it sitting on the ground with your legs crossed, and fingers twirled in an almost gang sign-esque fashion? Is it sitting in silence and attempting to filter out all of your thoughts? Or is it quietly listening to music whilst trying to become lost in the frequencies of sound? And finally, is there a correct way to meditate?

I often find myself advising my clients, and those who make bookings with me to meditate. When they ask me how to combat over thinking, or how to centre, and to ground themselves, I advise them to meditate. But what is the true meaning or even benefit of this flippant, and seemingly elusive statement?

For me, meditation is the time when you escape the ordinary confines of life, and retreat within yourself to make contact with a divine presence. The objective of this is to allow you to gain access to self awareness, deeper understanding, and to receive answers to questions that sit at the top of your mind, but are not so easily found when the mind is distracted.

For this reason, I truly believe that there is NO correct way to meditate, and perhaps we should stop viewing meditation as this alien, distant ancient eastern practice. Meditation can take on many different forms, and there is no eureka Moment, there is only the moment that you allow yourself to be so still, that you hear the all that exists.

Many people say that they do not know how to meditate, or that they do not understand meditation, and my suggestion is, there is nothing to understand, and there is nothing to ‘know’. 

The beauty of spirituality is in its individuality. It allows every person the freedom to find their own expression, and to finely tune themselves to tap into their own God like frequencies. As we are all individual manifestations of the one divine energy, we all relate to this divine energy in different ways, in accordance to our unique blue print. Meditation is the very thing that relaxes you to the point where you are receptive to accessing this divine connection. 

Meditation can be creating art, cooking food, listening to music, writing, singing, exercising making love with your soul counterpart, taking a long warm bath, talking on the phone to your mother, or for me, as the life path 7,  breaking every thought into intense logical analysis until the voice in my head provides me with answers. Do not grow deterred, or perceive that you are somehow spiritually faulty if ‘traditional’ meditation sounds like crickets to you, and begins to feel bland, or ineffective. Perhaps you have not found the mode that suits you, and you need to try out different techniques because you locate the very thing that brings you internal bliss, and awareness.

Keep searching, and when you find it, make yourself drunk with it.

From a very early age, it was clear to see that my path was one paved with difference. Inspiration, intuition, and imagination gripped me long before I could find my feet. I walk the life path of 7, so I am irreversibly bound to the realm of mysticism, spiritualism, and esotericism. I do not belong to this world, for I am a 'tween', always in between worlds. I am the commander of serpents, belonging to the glorious, and forbidden 13th zodiac of ophiuchus. Hidden in secrecy, to one day return as the divine feminine awakens. Love, is my speciality, and has governed my existence. I now use a combination of intuition, natural healing ability, astrology, psychology, sociology, and numerology to bring clarity, healing, and understanding to all. With the energy of ophiuchus running through me, I could never turn away from the path of healing, nor teaching. Not only does ophiuchus represent healing, but also the crevices of the dark shadows that we must crawl through to find our path to healing, in other words, the shamanic process of death, and re-birth, which has pretty much been the summation of my existence thus far. Long gone are my days of depression, I have re-claimed my divinity, and I desire nothing more than to help you to also claim yours. Not only the seeker, I am also the lover. Part of the many trials that I have endured upon this empathic journey, are that of heart break, and abandonment consciousness. For this reason, I have become an advocate for healthy loving relationships, and the harmony between the two sexes. This has taken me on a deep quest, to uncover ancient old secrets, and deeply entrenched beliefs, about man, about woman, and what this reads about where we are to. My eternal life drive and motto revolves around this simple theory, 'Where there is an outcome, there has existed a cause'. My particular areas of interest and expertise lie with sociology, psychology, spiritualism, philosophy, and literary, and creative writing. As I have a deeply intense desire to both serve, and aid humanity, I have naturally been drawn toward topics that have provided me with a more in depth account of societal behaviour, and as it stands, human kind. My roots are as deeply rooted as they can be, stemming from Ghanaian parents, who were raised, and both skilled in the art, and knowledge of superstition, and divination wisdom, it is no surprise that the blood flowing through my veins compels me to do such work, so relentlessly. Unlike other bloggers, this work featured here is not a mere hobby, it is more than just my livelihood, it is the calling of which i cannot ignore. Another prominent focus of mine, is mental illness. Not comfortable, nor fully sold with the western idealisms of the implications of such, i seek research, personal experience, and observation to prove, that many mental illnesses hold spiritual connotation, particularly as the mind is an avid translator of spiritual energies. Follow me on this journey as i discover myself, retrace my roots, fall deeply in love with my heritage, and finally accept my awkward, unorthodox societal position. To book one of my services, and allow me to guide you back to the soul, email me via cindyanneh-bu@hotmail.co.uk I offer dream interpretation, tarot reading, therapy, numerology readings, and see through the eyes of the lover..
