Meditation – Contemplation – Reflection - Thought

 

I thought I would write this blog for those of you, who like me, have begun to explore and widen their spiritual perspective, but who maybe feel a little uncomfortable, or don’t know where to start when it comes to meditating.

 

Meditation – Until recently, the word alone was enough to scare me.   Because I had this image in my head of how it had to be “done” And because I wasn’t comfortable with “that” image.   Because it wasn’t something that I wanted to “do”   Then even though I knew that I would probably find it beneficial, I avoided it like the plague.

 

You see, I mistakenly thought that meditation could only happen when sitting crossed legged on the floor.   I presumed it involved chanting.  And that it was something best done in a group.   And I have never been good at baring my soul to an audience.   And the crossed legged, chanting stuff, well, it just wasn’t me.

 

And I figured that seeing as the point of meditating was to relax, to find some sort of inner peace, then if I was to go into it uncomfortable, or on edge, then I was fighting a losing battle, and that I had no chance of making it work.

 

And then I started to think about how I “do” like to unwind.   How I love nothing more than turning out the light so that the room is pitch black, and climbing into bed and just thinking.    How the sound of the washing machine, and the tumble dryer, when I am lying there lulls me off to sleep.   How the sound of the sea gulls in the morning, makes me reflect upon the day ahead.    How automatically, one by one, I narrow down and isolate my thoughts, until I am thinking about just one thing.   How I slowly turn that over and over in my mind.  Twisting it this way and that, until I either drift off, or snap fully awake.

 

And I realised that for me,  that is meditation minus the makeup.  Dinner with none of the fuss.   It’s perfect, and it works for me.

 

And so, I suppose my message to you is that meditation is a personal thing.   And one size doesn’t fit all.   Go with what makes you feel happy, and ultimately you will find inner peace.
