Ordinary Meditation.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


How do we experience our unlimited and true self through meditation? It seems there are only a few experiences in meditation: thinking, sleeping, and focusing intentionally on the mantra. Maybe I’m being too realistic, but are there other experiences to be had? I’ve meditated a lot and never have had any sort of mystical experiences.


The experience of our unlimited self during meditation is often brief and quite ordinary. It is simply the awareness of your Self quietly in the background of your thoughts and feelings. So when you say your experiences in meditation are thinking thoughts, the mantra and sleeping, your true Self was there too. The opportunities to notice it are the gaps between the mantra and your thoughts. It is not a flashy or mystical experience, it is just simple Being, beneath the activity of your mind. But that silent Self is your real Self and is the source of all your thoughts, feelings, love, intelligence, creativity and aspirations. That presence of self quietly grows stronger and deeper through the type of daily meditations you described. In time that unlimited true Self comes to the forefront of your awareness a permanent feature of your daily active life whether you are awake or sleeping. You come to realize that all those ordinary, hum drum meditations were actually structuring a profound transformation of consciousness, minute by minute, day by day until your true self shines through your life permanently.
