A Powerful Meditation Technique

Here is a very simple, yet extremely powerful meditation technique that can help you get in touch with your God-self. Do this for 3-10 minutes each day.

  1. Sit yourself in a quiet environment with your back straight and your eyes open but relaxed. You may use a focal point in front of you, but you should just gaze instead of staring. The feeling is quiet relaxation.
  2. Gently expand your awareness to encompass your peripheral vision. Without moving your eyes or straining, simply become aware of everything you can now see in front of you, above you, below you, and to each side.
  3. Allow the sounds, sights, feelings, and smells simply to pass by. You are now an impartial observer.
  4. Bring your awareness to your breath. Without changing your breathing pattern, merely observe your breath naturally flowing in and out.
  5. On each inhale, silently repeat the word "I".
  6. On each exhale, silently repeat the word "Am".
That's it. This simple exercise, practiced for 3-10 minutes daily will speed you towards the awareness of the enlightenment you already are.
