Somebody wrote a pearl clutching post against meditation recently, and I got so riled up I had to climb onto my tiny soapbox and have a rant. I say NO to fear based superstition aimed to keep you small.
If someone’s warning about the ‘side effects’ of meditation or saying don’t do it because something spooky could happen, think again, or rather, ditch the head and think with the soul. The Social media post claimed meditation may cause panic attacks and anxiety, and worse, that it may even lead to unwanted spiritual contact.
Ummm – isn’t a deeper spiritual connection what we want?
Going deep is what we’re about when we meditate. Sure, if a bit of self reflection touches on areas that are ready to be healed, great, but no meditation ever caused a panic attack. We meditate to connect. How do you think we’re going to connect to our higher selves, our soul, and the unseen world beyond that is part of us, if we don’t tune in, go inside, and touch that place?
We do that through meditation. How else are we going to do it? We can’t pick up the phone, right? Meditation is a beautiful, beautiful thing. Done right it can open up your soul. There are 103 students in my psychic development group and guess what the first thing they do?
Meditation to connect with your soul, and so far no one’s died, gotten anxiety attacks or been possessed. They’ve welcomed the spirit connections that can also happen with excited open arms.
The magic is in you
If you don’t know how your own soul works; if you haven’t met your own soul first, how are you going to connect to other people in psychic readings, or the spirit world in mediumship readings?
You can’t. The phone line is inside you. The magic is in you.
Sure meditation can be a grind if you’re not used to it. When I first started, I could barely sit there for three minutes. And I did it every single day for half an hour for 18 months. The same meditation that I now give my students on My Psychic Soul. It doesn’t even matter what meditation. You can sit here with a cup of tea, gaze out of your beautiful London apartment window like I am right now. You can just look out the window. That’s also a form of meditation.
Anything that just stops and lets your mind wander and daydream is a form of meditation. It doesn’t have to be a formal kind of thing if that doesn’t suit you.
You’re gonna meet your soul
You’re going to meet your soul. And what can happen sometimes is there’s stuff to move. Stuff that’s ready to shift, ready to be sorted into the trash bin, like the recycling, yes, that will come up. And it can be uncomfortable, but it’s our soul growing. It’s not to be avoided, it’s not to be fearful of.
It’s actually a great sign our soul is growing, that we are one step closer to touching that eternal part of ourselves, that divine spark that is essentially us. Without all the fears, and the ego’s, and this human trapping. That’s what meditation does. That’s the phone line to God, (however you term God).
Say no to fear based superstition
But this fear based superstition stuff has got to stop, guys. Anything that makes you feel less than, scared, makes you pull back, that’s something trying to make you less than you really are. Spiritual development should make you feel the opposite. Expansive, supported, cared for, loved, free, strong, empowered, loved. I said love, right? And not alone.
Anything that makes you feel alone and small and scary, that’s not a spiritual path, that’s fear based, and we can say no to that.
Say NO to Spiritual middle-manning
And while I’m up here on my soap box, let’s also say no to those who put a gate between you and the divine. This comes in a very slick version these days called “blocks”.
There are many who will fish for ways you are small so that only they can fix them. This is spiritual middle-manning and it sucks.
Spiritual middle-manning is just like the priesthood where no one was allowed to God except the priest, or Shaman, or Rabbi, or holy man, and it’s still going on.
New age middle-manning still exists
It’s in the guise of some of the more unscrupulous psychic coaches, mentors and healers. You can go direct. Your soul is your soul, and you’re in charge of it.
You have the divine ability to connect to your psychic self with what you have. Blocks or no blocks.
All the great mediums of this world didn’t get their blocks fixed by coaches or healers. They simply sat in the stillness of their own soul, (hello – meditation) Maybe they walked in the forest, maybe they prayed, maybe they chanted. But they got through and they didn’t outsource their power to a coach who wanted to be the middleman. You don’t need anybody else, you don’t need me. You don’t need anyone.
You can do it right now with what you have.
If you ever work with me and say you’ve got blocks I’ll smile gently and ignore you. I’ll suggest some quiet time and maybe another round of the soul expanding meditation I use with my students. Because it works.
So then you can make that journey into yourself. So, say no to fear based superstitious crap, and run it through your filter. If it makes you feel fearful, less than, alone, scared, it’s not for you. Don’t buy into it. You can go direct with your spiritual connection whenever you want, with whatever you’ve got because the magic is in you and always has been.
