So far we have chosen either a method of meditation or a subject to meditate on. In other words we have controlled our meditations.
Today I am giving you--quite literaly-- a blank canvas to meditate on.
But first I'd like to offer some advice. Humans are, to a large extent, guided by their senses, and that means audio, visual, sentient and olfactory and this meditation will invoke your predominant sense.
Please accept what you receive, and at the end of this meditation please write down what you get.
It is likely you will understand the messsage within the meditation, but if you don't there will come a time/incident when something will trigger you back to this meditation and any notes you make now may be relevant at this later time.
When you are ready, calm and center yourself as you always do, and then imagine you are in front of a blank canvas.
You may feel the need to fill the canvs yourself, that's fine.
Allow your inner creative self take over for as long as needs be.
When you are finished study the result and tune into your emotions and note how you feel.
Take time to understand the message from what is in front of you.
And when you are ready return to the present and write down whatever comes to you without stopping to edit.
Write until you have finished befoe you read over it.
For those of you who prefer to watch the blank canvas to see what come--a bit like witching a cinema screen--
Take note of what you see, hear, sense, or feel, then 'listen' with your 'inner ear' to what is being conveyed to you.
When the impressions cease and you are ready to return to the present, please write down, without interruption, everything you experieced during this meditation.
If when you read it back, it makes no sense, don't be disappointed, know the message will reveal itself at the right time.
There are multi puroses to this meditation.
a) Trust in your inner self/instincts not to control the contents of the meditation.
b) Possibly discovering your dominant sense from/upon which many of your attitudes shape your impressions of the world and people around you.
c) Acceptance that at a subconsious level your brain is receiving and interpreting messages and informtion all the time.
d) by offering the blank screen/canvas your subconsious has the chance to connect with you aon alevel neither of you have used before. So instead of using the accepted 10% of your brain's conscious output, you are harnessing that inner % at a time of your choosing, but without chaining the connections with conscious controls.
