I have been meditating for over 40 years. In fact I am addicted to sitting still for an hour and completely letting go into the moment. It brings me great peace and a quiet mind.
I first started meditating because I had gone through a messy divorce (emotionally) and I wanted to get rid of the suffering and pain I was feeling. I started with the simple technique of watching my breath and allowing the pain to surface. It was very uncomfortable in the beginning to just “let it be” but the more I breathed into my pain the more it dissolved and the lightness of peace appeared.
I recognised that all my suffering was from my busy mind. My thoughts kept going over the past trying to get rid of the pain but that just seemed to cause more pain.
In Ancient Chinese wisdom of the Tao, it says that “from the One(ness) comes the two (yin/yang) and from the two comes the three and from the three comes the 10 thousand things.” This is a description of how our minds create the world.

It is also the place that really shows you how well you trust, whether you believe in a higher power to look after you or not. This is where your fears of lack show up and where your judgements of the rich and poor surface.
I have had many lessons over the years in giving. I have attended prosperity classes, read more books that I can count and have endeavored to place into practice whatever resonated with me. The one lesson that I always found that worked the best is the act of giving, I always come back to it as a major technique for prosperity. This lesson has been reinforced within my psych and heart time and time again.
Only recently I have returned to ‘consciously’ giving once more. Over the last 2 years I have been utlising my savings. I had put aside some money from a house sale, and have taken the time to relax and focus on my spiritual transformation, a sort of semi retirement.Continue reading →
