Spiritual meditation nourishes spirit and soul as it cultivates inner peace, healing and transformation. It helps us live more skillfully, more in tune with nature, our higher selves, and the Divine. It is your time to listen and be heard, to bring into your being that which is yourself yet beyond the self.
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." Spiritual meditation is silent, passive. It is the time to practice the presence of the Creator, to welcome the Divine essence and consciousness to come into our being, to listen and be listened to.
You do not have to be a master of meditation to enjoy spiritual and soul meditation or the many benefits it brings. What is important is that your intentions are pure and you desire connection. Skill at quieting the mind and being able to sit still for more than a few minutes will come later.
Meditations and contemplation brings 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.
Even short, inspired spirit or soul meditations can facilitate healing and a sense of being nurtured when you tap into the sense that you are part of something vast and wonderful. A brief moment connecting to the "all that is" and getting that are all one and part of the One is worth hours of sitting in silence. You may call this God, the Divine, the Unified Field, the Creator, Cosmic Consciousness. Labels aren't important so choose the one that is most meaningful to you.
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.
There are many ways to sense the spiritual connection and knowing for yourself.
