Awakening Your Inner Light – The Power of Mindfulness Meditation

Hello dear friends, as you all know if you read my blog, I’m a proponent of mindfulness meditation.

Well, it seems I’m to be writing about it once again. Guess I’m not “receiving” my own message Ha Ha! I do enjoy and benefit from meditation, and yet… How often in the last month have I neglected my practice, despite all my blathering on about it to you folks?

Perhaps I can find a new perspective from the “Awakening Your Inner Light” aspect of this month’s topic that will set me back on my path so I’m not a total hypocrite.

The Light Body

What comes to mind is the ‘Light Body.’ If this is a new term for you let me start by saying: the light body is part of the subtle energies that surround the physical body, vibrating at a higher frequency. It’s often described as the vehicle for the soul and our higher consciousness. Connecting with the light body can lead to a spiritual awakening, to heightened consciousness, and understanding the interconnected state of all things.

Maybe, if we can awaken our everyday consciousness to our light body, we can awaken and shine our light in the world more fully from a place of heart centered knowing. And here we are back to meditation – because this is how I get to that place. A more conscientious practice would help keep me there I know.

Sitting with Yourself

Coincidently, whilst I was writing this piece I was asked if I knew of anyone who taught meditation. I don’t but am happy to hear of anyone that does. For me, meditation is about sitting with myself. Who better than ourselves can teach us that. It’s a fallacy to think we can just turn off the mind, that we should somehow be able to sit for hours with nothing going on! That has never been my experience. What I’ve learned is to watch the thoughts, acknowledge their right to be there, and let them go by – without engaging. “Ay, there’s the rub!” as Hamlet would say. Non-engagement with the ideas and memories that pop up, those wretched things that start me rolling on the hamster wheel of reviewing what is past already, or what might be! This does not serve my being in or shining my light.

A final thought:  In a number of esoteric philosophies there is a vehicle for the light body called a Merkabah (there are a number of different English spelling translations) and this might be a path of further investigation should you wish to go down a bit of a rabbit hole.
