In the previous blogs, Meditation Series - Part 5 - Techniques For Practise Of Common Types Of Meditation - Focused Attention Meditation, and Meditation Series - Part 4 - Techniques For Practise Of Common Types Of Meditation - Mindfulness Meditation, we looked at mastering our mind and thoughts through meditation. Contemplative Meditation is quiet different. It is from the heart, and not the mind.
By opening up oneself through feeling without the presence of thoughts or imagery, the individual is creating a space for god to be present, and true communication beyond words (and imagery) to begin.
To begin Contemplative Meditation, you may like to try first to centre your mind through focusing on thinking about god using a couple of words, or an image. Next try to get a sense of a feeling or emotion you associate as gods love. Release the thoughts and now focus on the feeling. Once you have done this, try to remove the idea of focusing on the act of feeling emotion and to simply experience this presence of stillness. Through practise, you will have inner knowing that you are contemplating and communicating with god through the feeling of unconditional love.
There are many benefits of contemplative meditation. For general techniques on meditation, click Meditation Series - Part 3 - Meditation Techniques.
