Spiritual aliveness is the result of making your spirituality the day's number one priority. Achieving this is fairly simple - as simple as being aware of one or two secrets of the universe and then setting your intention for each day.
Life is an expression of your spiritual self. You are here to gain experience on a grand scale. The small details of daily existence may not seem important, but they are all threads in the grand scheme of the life that you, as your inner self, planned before you were born.
It makes sense, therefore, to begin each day by becoming charged with the best supply of life energy available. Then you can make the most of each day's experiences as they unfold. Life energy, or etheric energy, is the main energy transmitted by the Sun. The Sun also radiates physical energy, such as light and heat, but the amount of physical energy pales in comparison to the amount of life-supporting, etheric energy which courses through our bodies.
At dawn each day, the Sun brings a great change to your local environment. The swing from darkness to light at dawn causes a turbulence in the ethers as the life energy in the atmosphere reorganizes itself for a day of new activity. Sunrise is the time of nature's awakening. It is the best possible time to recharge yourself for each new day of activity.
By beginning your day with a connection to the Sun's energy, you are actually aligning with the natural system of Creation. Infinite Being constantly feeds the universe with life energy in order to maintain all motion in the universe. Infinite Being sends the energy needed to maintain life through the central sun of the universe. From there, it works its way through the central suns of the galaxies and then through the suns of each solar system. Local suns radiate physical energy in addition to life energy.
In a world where people's main focus on life comes through their five physical senses, the Sun takes on a great significance.
The Sun is the closest thing to Infinite Being within our sight.
What better way to start your day, than to breath in the power of this mighty orb as it awakens you and your surroundings to the energy of the new day?
Here's how to achieve this, with one simple addition to the Infinite Being Meditation technique:
On each in-breath, visualize white light, representing life energy from the Sun, coming into your body via your nostrils. See this white light as filling your entire body every time you inhale.
This fills your whole being with extra life energy because air is a carrier medium for etheric energy. Etheric energy is highly responsive to directed mental pressure so, once the air is inside your lungs, the power of your visualization can be used to direct the life energy to fill your entire body. The energy will automatically follow your mental direction.
Here is the Infinite Being Meditation technique, revised to include the life energy charging technique:
1. Focus your attention on the slow, even flow of breath as it passes in and out of your nostrils.
2. Visualize each in-breath as white light filling your body. Then, at the top of each in-breath, mentally repeat once the affirmation "I am Infinite Being."
3. On the out-breath, allow your attention to follow the flow of air from your nostrils. To induce an immediate calming effect, slow each out-breath and allow it to take longer than each in-breath.
4. Hold the breath out of the body for a short time. In this quiet space, don't think, just be. Become quietly aware of thoughts and impressions that may arise from your inner self. The end of each breath cycle thus becomes your personal communion space with your inner being.
5. Return to active intention by starting the breath cycle again at step 1.
Start your twenty-minute meditation and charging session each day, ten minutes before dawn. If dawn is at, say, approximately 7:10 am, then you would plan to start your day with meditation from 7:00 - 7:20 am. Reorganize your daily schedule around the most important natural event of the day. The deeper connection to nature is well worth the effort. At least once a week, check when sunrise occurs by referring to the news media, or to weather sites such as weather.com. Then you can be in tune with the greatest cosmic forces of revitalization that occur each and every day.
Make meditation at dawn your number one priority of the day. Then everything that follows will be more energized and more in tune with who you really are.
Energetically, the highlight of every day is dawn. It is truly a magical time.
