One of the first steps in communicating with our deceased loved ones is to tune out all the Earthly things around us and to tune into our souls. The easiest way to do this is through meditation. If you aren’t use to mediation, there are several ways to accomplish it. You can meditate at a special designated place such as a church or temple. You can also do it in a room in your house. Or you way want to do it outside sitting or walking with nature. Choose an environment where your mind can unfold and relax.
Close your eyes and sit quietly for a moment. Allow the thoughts to flow through your mind. Don’t follow any of them. Just let them bubble up and release into the air. Concentrate on your breathing. Breathe in with your nose and out with your mouth. Try to breathe in to the count of three and out to the count of three. Observe your abdomen rise and fall with each breath. Feel all tension release from your body. All the muscles from your face down to your toes are relaxed. Your mind and body are one and at peace.
Now that you are relaxed, fill your mind with thoughts of all the things you’re grateful for in your life. Send a thought of love to all the people in your life that make you feel happy and loved. Make a mental note of any images that flash before you–some people see colors, abstract images. Take notice of any sounds or non-verbal information you receive.
Picture a golden cord coming down from above you and filling your entire body with a gold-flowing, angelic light. See it permeate each cell and brighten everything in its path. Feel your body become warm with this new golden energy. Spend a moment allowing this light to fill you and warm your soul. Now picture the cord dissipating into the sky. The golden energy is running through you and you feel warmed, energized, and loved.
Imagine another cord going from your root chakra (the energy center located just below your pubic bone) to the center of the Earth. Feel it anchoring you and pulling all your energy down to your feet. Enjoy the solidity of your connection with the Earth. Picture the cord dissipating to the center of the Earth. You are one with your body, mind, and spirit.
Open your eyes and relax for a moment, collecting your thoughts about the meditation. Write down any questions, information, or images that may have come up in the process. This meditation can be as short as 10 minutes or over an hour; it is up to the individual. But you should try to do it once a week to train your mind to disconnect from everything going on around you. It is paramount for spirit communication. Please feel free to share any information or post any questions, as well.
Love and light,
