Spiritual Meditation for Inner Peace and Healing

Spiritual meditation nourishes spirit and soul as it cultivates inner peace, healing and transformation.  It is lovely to contemplate, and to bring into your being that which is yourself yet greater than yourself.

In some ways, it is difficult to put words to the knowing and feeling that comes when you touch that place inside yourself that we call soul or spirit. 

In quiet moments of spiritual meditation, you experience total silence and unity with all that is.

Perhaps this is the true context for the words, "Be still and know that I am God."

Experienced meditators attain this state by focusing on the emptiness or spaces between the distractions and chatter of their minds. As they do this, the noise quiets down and eventually stills.

Fortunately, you do not have to be a master of meditation to enjoy spiritual and soul meditation or the many benefits it brings.  

There are many ways to sense the knowing for yourself. 

  • Contemplate the connection we all share. 
  • Experience a sense of oneness and profound connection with the universe by pondering the attributes of the Divine. Whisper words like "Love, Peace, Always Present, We are One, Om" and let them sink in. Or choose one at a time. Open yourself to what it means and how you experience it in your life.
  • Walk in nature and allow yourself to connect with the natural world around you. Smell the flowers and look at how perfect and beautiful and different they all are.
  • Doing the earth energy healing exercise outside connects you to the earth. It is meditative, relaxing, and quite nice.
  • Experience a lovely sunset. Notice all the colors and how the energy of the day changes as the sun drops below the horizon. 
  • Your spiritual meditation can be as simple and profound as standing outside on a starry night while contemplating the wonders of the universe and your place in it. This is one of my favorites.  Being outside in the dark and quiet fosters mindfulness and presence. Look at the stars and the dark space between them. Contemplate how we are all together on this big ball, whirling through space at thousands of miles an hour. Breathe in and feel our oneness and the vastness of the universe. 
  • Express gratitude, wonder and appreciation as you contemplate. Whether you are marveling at a sunset, the angelic face of your sleeping baby, or chanting "Aum" for the thousandth time, nothing will open your awareness to the all that is more profoundly than heartfelt gratitude and being consciously present in the moment. 

Each of these experiences and contemplations bring your attention into the now, which is all there is.

You may find that deeply meaningful spiritual meditation naturally flows from within as you practice the power of now. Let it flow. Put no expectations or time frames on those experiences. Stay soft. Know that you are always connected to Source and all that is, but in these moments you sense and feel the wonder of it.

I do believe that even a short, inspired spirit or soul meditation can be the most healing and nurturing of all. It is a way to experience being part of something vast and wonderful. You get a sense of the greatness that we are all part of. No matter how you get there, this is true spiritual meditation. 

The more you tap into this place within yourself that is vaster than how you see yourself, the more your worries and regrets fade in significance. Peace will pervade your being. That is the place of true healing.  

According to Dr. Klinghart, connecting with the Divine through true meditation facilitates healing at the fifth level of your energy field. This is the level of awareness, self-healing, knowing and divine connection. 

Guided Meditations

Here are two guided meditations for soul and spirit. They each foster healing, inner peace and transformation in two very different ways. Spiritual whirlwind is just a short sample. You may wish to continue the visualization for a few extra minutes to feel complete. Enjoy!

Whether you experience spiritual meditation by touching the stillness, contemplating the great or small wonders of the universe, or by enjoying the convenience of modern technology and videos, this practice will enrich you on many levels. I encourage you to make spirit and soul meditation a regular part of your life.
