Are you tired of the busy lifestyle? How do you cope up with stress and achieve a sense of peace and well- being? Not surprisingly, meditation techniques are becoming increasingly popular. What really is meditation?When you hear the word meditation, what usually comes up in your mind?
I want to share it with you about the book I had read a while ago entitled ” INTO GOD’S PRESENCE, Listening to God through Prayer and Meditation by Liz Babbs who works extensively in the area of relaxation and meditation. Her work has been featured in many of the major newspapers and magazines, and she recorded a series of stress- busting relaxation and meditation slots for Christian radio and tv.
I was amazed and blessed with this book. To give you an overview of meditation, meditation is a mental and spiritual activity between an individual or group, and God. It directs the mind away from self, and concentrates it upon God. A christian meditation is a deep form of prayer that can lead to direct communication with God. It is not focused on experience or requests, but on surrender. We are learning the simplicity of being with God. I tried it to, and it is really relaxing. There are lot of meditation technique in this book, I will share to you what I loved most and I usually do. The Beach Meditation, It is really helpful to play some gentle atmospheric music during this meditation. You can used this in retreat session for relaxation or a small group. If you want to try this to yourself, have someone do this to you.
Here’s the script:
Imagine that you are lying on the beach…think about your favorite beach and visualise yourself lying there now.
The pebbles are moving gently as the waves lap on to the shore…see the colors all around you-reflected in the sea…the shells… the sky…
Feel the warmth of the sun on your body as you relax into the warm sand beneath you. ( pause )
Now imagine that you have become one of the pebbles on the beach…How does it feel to be gently lifted u p as the waves lap over you- refining…smoothing…redefining.. ( pause)
Enjoy the rhythm of the sea washing over you as you breache out tension…and breath in tranquility;( pause ) and as you breathe out anxiety and breathe in peace. ( pause ).
Now think of those times when the tide of your life’s circumstances have smoothed away your own rough edges. ( pause ) And now thank God for his healing work in your life. ( pause )
And finally, entrust yourself into the loving arms of the One who gives us the gift of his rest. ( let music play out ).
How does it feel now? Have you free your self from worry? You can do it as often as you can. If you feel heavy deep inside you, then relax and take a moment to meditate. Have a blessed life ahead
