Has meloncholy plagued you of late and you are unable to pinpoint what exactly that worries you, then the best thing to do is sleep over the problem. Arise with the Sun and sit in Sukhasan (squat on the ground on a mat) and surrender your self to the Almighty to experience his wonder.
That is exactly what I did today morning despite being a Sunday. Sundays are usually lazy days, but since the beginning of the year, my Sundays have been different due to one main reason , the meditation.
Despite practicing meditation for peace and harmony one does get bogged down by work pressure and unethical crowd one has to deal with. Envy is a negative energy, when faced, can unsettle a very sensitive person. It can dwindle the confidence level or can even lead one to dislike one's own god given talents. When words of consolence and support sound hollow the best thing to do is turn to universe for healing.
Faith in God is faith in self. A lit candle or a lamp supplies the positive aura and keeps negative energy at bay. Surrender the self to the universe. As the mind becomes thoughtless, the body becomes light as a feather. It is in this state one can experience the sound of the ocean through the out going breath. One can feel the vibrations of the universe in the mouth and the sound of silence loud in the mind. Every cell in the brain gets activated in this stage. Passing glimpses of visual images of finer aspects of life also may be experienced. It is awesome to feel the sound of the ocean and the universe in one's own mouth. Experiencing the cosmic energy thus is a second stage of meditation. One can feel the negativity cleansed in this process. All the negative thoughts get deleted in this process. Experiences are totally based on individual basis and varies from person to person depending on the discipline of the mind and faith in spiritualism. Meditation is the media to connect to universe and draw in cosmic energy. This state of being in meditation may last from 15 to 45 minutes depending on the levels of meditative state.
A simple prayer said sincerely goes a long way in making your day. The prayer gives one the strength to forgive self and the one who has hurt you. Forgiving is the only way to move ahead spiritually. Forgive self the first and the formost of all.
To err is human but to forgive is divine, as the saying goes. Meditation gives one the power to forgive and move on without hoarding malice in heart. Fret not over envious souls who can make your life miserable but remember one has many blessings to compensate with.
