The point of meditation is to memorize what it feels like to flow
There are many misconceptions about meditating. These misunderstandings lead people to say things like:
- I am not very good at meditating
- I don’t know how to meditate
- I can’t concentrate
- I can’t focus my mind
- I don’t like meditating.
In fact, meditating is the easiest and most natural thing in the world.
Meditation can be broken down into two paths (click on each to read more in-depth):
- Quieting the mind
- Creating from the quiet
You must always begin with #1. The simple reason for this is because, if your mind is not quiet, if you try to create with resistance, you will simply create more resistance.
Meditating is the simple act of becoming aware of what is. It is the transition from being lost in this world to watching what is happening. It is “becoming the watcher.”
We live in a matrix. This matrix is extremely immersive. It is not only outside of your body – other people, places, sights, smells, experiences – but inside of your body as well – your thoughts, your feelings, your physical sensations.
You can be lost in this world, where you are not aware of what is happening. Or you can be aware of what is happening.
- You can be anxious or you can be aware that you feel anxiety
- You can be busy or you can be aware that you feel busy
- You can be thinking or you can be aware that you are thinking
You are not your anxiety. You are the being capable of experiencing anxiety.
So, when you “meditate,” you are simply moving to the state of watching.
YOU DO NOT NEED TO QUIET YOUR MIND.
By becoming aware, your mind will naturally quiet.
We will speak a lot about this. But for now, I am going to give you one simple example:
- You begin to “meditate.” This can be anywhere, anytime, doing anything. You do not need to sit crosslegged or be in a quiet place, or anything like that.
- You just have to become aware of what you are feeling, experiencing, thinking. That is all.
- You will probably feel resistance. This resistance will be in the form of discomfort in the body or lots of looping thoughts.
- Just watch that resistance. Laugh at that resistance. That resistance is not you. You do not need to do anything to make this resistance go away.
- Begin with a few minutes. Don’t time yourself. Do it until you feel a little bit of peace.
- Breath that peace and just vibe with it. Memorize that feeling. If you want to keep meditating, keep meditating. If you want to stop, do it, just try to bring a piece of that peace with you.
- Every time you get “lost” again, you will eventually wake up. You will suddenly see, “oh, I was lost in my mind.” Every time you “wake up,” you strengthen that part of yourself that is the watcher. If you do this enough, you will begin to live from that watcher.
People often focus on something repetitive (such as their breath, or a repetitive sound) simply because it helps to soften the mind. Don’t get caught up on this focus. The point is not the point of concentration. The point is to notice when you stop being focused. If it feels better, just allow yourself to melt into the moment, almost like you’re in a movie scene. You will become aware of all the smells and sounds around you, and you will suddenly feel how you are just a body floating in time and space.
Awareness is the start of it all. Building awareness is the key to unlocking all of your power. Building awareness is the key to manifesting, healing, joy, love, prosperity, and peace.
When you build enough awareness, then you won’t keep giving energy to your mind (which happens when you get caught up in your thoughts). Your mind will quiet, and you will begin to create (which essentially is what all this “manifestation” talk is about).
Meditating > Watch what is > keep watching what is > train yourself to watch what is > quiet the mind > begin to create > unlock unbelievable things.
