Have you identified the things that provide or create
Are you doing these things yet?
Interesting questions, aren't they.
the things that I KNOW brings more peace, health, happiness
and abundance is meditation.
If you're a Silva
Method Graduate, you've heard me (or another instructor)
talking about this. You may sort of know that meditation does
this but still not spend time regularly experiencing that quiet
Ask yourself "Why?" or "Why not?" What's
so hard about taking 10 or 15 minutes a day to sit still, eyes
closed, and experience the quiet?
Part of the answer may be that you think you have to DO
something to be of value, to be of worth, to be effective and
productive. Yet the 'busyness' of doing may actually repel the
very things we're desiring and expecting!
But now ask yourself "If I don’t think I'm worthy
of taking this time, would Source believe I truly value the
things (peace, health, happiness and
abundance) that I say I desire? ...things that come
"Does Source believe I desire lowered stress?" "...more
income?" "...solutions to problems?" "...a better life?"
"By my actions, what am I showing Source I desire?"
Some people feel that spending time in meditation is
selfish yet taking care of yourself assures that you have the
ability to share more with others. Remember: the
more abundance we have, the more we can share with
others...the more time we have to be with family and
friends...and the more adventures we may
So let's think about what meditation really is.
It's a quiet time, usually with eyes closed.
Seems simple to me. How about you?
But is there more to it?
Well, there may be. It depends on what form of meditation
you're using as well as what your intentions and expectations
Many people meditate to enhance spiritual growth
and deepen inner peace.
They listen for the 'still, soft voice' of their
Guidance/Source. Ask a question...receive an answer.
By the way, 'voice' may suggest you could be 'hearing
voices' like a mentally ill person. Not so. Some people may
seem to hear something but it's almost always 'inside their
head' not in their ears. Most often, it's a thought or series
of thoughts on the same or similar theme.
Some people use this quiet time to 'program'
for specific manifestations such
as improved health, a life partner, a new job...in other words,
a specific outcome.
Other benefits would be managing stress, energize,
center and balance the physical, emotional and mental
bodies. No matter why you take this quiet time -
meditation - you benefit.
I'd like to remind you of the saying “energy
flows where attention goes.”
Every time you have a thought - no matter what the topic
- you've turned on a magnet that draws it to you. Certainly if
you have few thoughts on one topic, it's a very weak magnet.
Lots of thoughts means a strong magnetic attraction.
Lots of thoughts on your desired outcome or goal,
makes a strong attraction. If your thoughts are fearful,
then you're attracting situations which cause you to feel more
Whenever you repeatedly think of the same thing,
you're drawing it to you.
Whether you're a Silva Graduate or not, you can take a
few minutes, a few times a day, to just sit with your eyes
closed. Follow your breath and let your mind grow quieter. Know
that on the in-breath you're experiencing healthy energy. On
the out-breath, you send out worry, stress, tension and
limiting beliefs. Doing this slows the mind-chatter.
Sitting quietly for 15 minutes, three times a day
improves health - physically, mentally, emotionally and
This can make a powerful difference in your life...even
if all you do is take time to breathe.
