Hearing the Voice of God

Many people believe that the purpose of meditation is to quiet or empty the mind. I disagree. I meditate for two reasons. The first is to clear my energy, of which I have written before and which I will revisit again in my upcoming Eagle Meditation series.  I also meditate so that I can hear. I listen in the silence of my quiet mind to hear the voice of my own spirit, the voice of earth, even the voice of god.

Listening is a very different space than emptiness, although a quiet mind does make it easier to hear.  Next time you sit in silence, consider opening your listening ears.  You may hear yourself, and it may surprise you.

  1. I totally understand this Alix. When I first started my meditation practice, I had to work very hard at learning how to quiet my mind. Now that I have that part figured out I can hear the voice or the message that is coming through. Like everything in life, this seems to have been a learned process for me.

      Hi Jackie,
      I agree- meditation is a habit and, like any habit, requires practice to become second nature. I wonder, how do you meditate? There are so many styles and they each work somewhat differently, so I’d be interested to hear what works for you.
