Ancient Instruction on Meditation
“And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.” Revelation 8:1
The seventh seal or seventh chakra connects us to the divinity within, to our divine source; our holy spirit, a positive spiritual energy, a connection that requires silence in heaven; quiet in the mind.
Set aside half an hour each day to be still in mind and body.
“And the earth was without form, and void;…
Set aside all incantations, mantras, or repetitious prayers, which are extraneous attachments to belief, creating the void that is needed for the new creation to begin.
and darkness was upon the face of the deep.”
This means nothingness in the mind. No visualizations, no gazing at crystals, no making of sounds. Listen only to the primordial sound of your breath, the physical manifestation of the holy spirit.
“And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”
When we quiet our mind, we abase its power; the power of the mind giving way to the power or holy spirit of the heart, which void of all extraneous attachments, is free to move upon the waters, influencing the thoughts of our mind. It takes time to quiet the mind, to turn off the everyday thoughts, so be patient, “But let patience have her perfect work” (James 1:4), that perfect work being a complete transform-ation. When the ego-driven thoughts of the mind are restrained, the holy spirit of the heart is free to move the subconscious thoughts into the light; into the awareness of the conscious mind.
