5 minute meditation

This morning I got up a little later than I wanted and had more to take care of before I started work than ususal.  Among other things I had to go to Meijer a 24 hour store to get cereal for my youngest son Jordan.  I wanted to meditate but felt like I didn’t really have enough time to get a decent meditation in before I left the house. I wanted to meditate so bad that I decided to devote 10 minutes to meditating and then go pick up the cereal, even if it made me late.  I sat down and closed my eyes and within no time I was deep in meditation.  The inner sound, or Aum vibration, was so loud, it was unreal. I was also getting ideas and informationon on how to deal with different situations in my life.   I enjoyed the whole experience. 

After some time I decided to come out and get back to my busy life.  To my surprise the meditation that was so peaceful, informative and full of bliss only had lasted for five minutes.  And to think initially I was worried about having enough time.  Afterwards, I was thinking about it and I realized that my really wanting to connect and my thoughts prior to meditation prepared the ground work for this wonderful experience so much that when I sat down in the lotus position all other thoughts were pretty much gone.  I am sure this was also God and the Universe reminding me that the meditation starts long before I sit down, and if my mind is on God when I sit down in the lotus position I will go deep right away.  Ultimately there is always time to meditate, even if it is just for a minute.

Here is an important note.  If the same scenario happened but instead I did not go that deep when I meditated,  it would have still been much better to get the 5 or 10 minutes in.  Quite often we do not realize how much we are training the mind each time we go within.  It often shows later and we are most happily surprised at the results.  If you have forgotten how to meditate, listen to my How To Meditate download.  It is free for all to use.

Peace and Blessings

  1. I really needed to read this! Lately, I’ve been so ‘busy’ and or ‘tired’ that I haven’t been meditating at the time that I more or less designte for meditation. I have been feeling guilty.

    I now will take five or ten minutes – maybe more than once a day.

    Thanks, Craig
