Joy as Meditation

| | Comments (1)

I feel there’s something I’m supposed to be blogging about, but I have searched my mind, my heart, and my hard drive, and have not come up with a thing. So I’ll just start and see what happens…

Today was high on the Joy index. My communion time—the time I spent sitting with my Spirit and listening—was enhanced by some more realizations about what Joy really is. I used to try to always meditate in that “quieting the mind,” and “being still” kind of way during my communion time, but I’ve realized that, while sometimes I need to purposefully sit and go into an altered state to become receptive to my Spirit, its not always what’s called for. More and more, simply sitting in gratitude for all that I have been blessed with and allowing the Joy to well up in me is every bit as powerful! Feeling the Joy, and amplifying it with even more gratitude for the increasing Joy, makes the Joy increase even more, and then the gratitude increases and on and on. It’s a frequency escalating exchange. An exchange with God-In-Me. And it’s thrilling!

Why is this as powerful (maybe even more) as a standard-type meditation? First, when you meditate, you are seeking communion, seeking bliss, through seeking perfect alignment. Well, if you start with assuming communion, and fanning the flames of Joy all the way to bliss, you are already where you’re wanting to go by meditating! While it’s true that you might “go farther out” when you meditate, the act of consciously having a “bliss out” with your Spirit definitely raises your frequency sky high! When you’re consciously, actively seeking Joy with your Spirit, you are in the same basic position as you are when you meditate—in perfect receptivity to your Spirit for a full and free flow of Love and divine wisdom, catalyzing the Joy response that is your indicator of being in the high-frequency realm of your Spirit. (I’m sure I was receiving “downloads” from my Spirit throughout today’s whole communion time and beyond.) With your conscious mind participating in profusely expressing gratitude to your Spirit, it is an even more dynamic experience than meditating when your mind is still. It’s like the garden hose analogy that I included in Recreating Eden—while a garden hose nozzle is not the source of the water that flows through it, by deliberately squeezing the trigger, you can get the flow going. That’s what I practiced today and I definitely had a wonderful time!

I guess I did manage to come up with something to say! I'll be glad when I can share information about some exciting things that are in the works, but as I’ve said often before, I’ve learned the hard way that when you talk about things before it’s time to, you can dissipate the energy! Oh, well—it’s very late, I can barely keep my eyes open, and I should turn in now, anyway. (I hope this is all coherent!) ’Night!

This is SO TRUE!! I love that you do this too. :) I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to raise their vibration. It is SO MUCH FUN to do it this way. One of my favorites for sure. It is so neat to read that someone else does this. I have not come across many that describe it like I feel it. You did a great job with your description. I often find it so EASY to do this because it starts out with simple gratitude. Then it builds into excitement. Quickly it builds into full out belly laughter. To me, it feels as if the higher, universal energy, connects with the earth energy and meats at my heart. It feels as if my heart overflows and wants to explode with pure joy. Like I am a conduit. Simply amazing. Thanks for sharing your experience. It is refreshing to go back over your archives. :) I shared your book with someone this week and it inspired me to revisit your blog. Many blessings and hugs!!
