Today I offer a type of Protection Meditation. This is part of a series of articles on meditation, based on excerpts from my book, Sacred Meditation: Embracing the Divine. The more you play with these methods, the more you will find your stress shifted and the closer you will find yourself with the Divine. Meditation is a powerful stress management tool. It will increase your productivity and magnify your efforts in every good thing you put your mind to. Bless you in your journey!
This special purpose meditation should be done whenever you realize you are feeling unsafe, due to financial hazard, the loss of a loved one, neighborhood crime, or a stalker. It is also a good meditation when you feel unsafe due to international conditions of conflict or contagion. This would also include feeling vaguely unsafe, even though you don’t know why.
Any special purpose meditation can shift the energy of situations and places. Begin by going to your special quiet practice place. Take a minute to think about your purpose. Write down your vision for your desired results. Include sights, sounds, tastes, smells, and sensations. Be as vivid and complete in your vision as possible.
For the Protection Meditation, try beginning with contemplation of this portion of Psalm 91 (NIV). Or study the entire Psalm, when you have the time:
9 If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways
Vision in detail how safe you and your family truly are. Remember to give thanks that all this is true. And repeat whenever you think of these feelings. Consider posting a sign on your mirror that says, “He will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.”
If you are threatened by a particular enemy, such as an aggressive ex, a stalker, a nasty neighbor, or an abusive boss, you may want to begin with a contemplation of this scripture, Psalm 25: 1-3 (NIV):
1To you, O LORD, I lift up my soul;
2 in you I trust, O my God. Do not let me be put to shame, nor let my enemies triumph over me.
3 No one whose hope is in you will ever be put to shame, but they will be put to shame who are treacherous without excuse.
Now journal out what you hear and experience while contemplating and meditating on God’s protection. And, as always, give thanks for what you are visioning for. In this case, it’s your safety.
Now journal out your feelings. Has your concern already shifted? Observe any change in your relationships over the next day and week. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you have on meditation. And now you are in Upbeat Spiritual Livingsm!
And that would be you, also, increasingly Healthy Happy and Loving Lifesm!
