Meditation is a wonderful beneficial relaxing experience, it allows to shut out the outside world for a little while, for us to be calm and alone with ourselves, to clear our thoughts obtain clarity and to be able to listen, when we listen, when we receive indication on which way to go, the answer to our problems, and the right decision to take, this is not the case for everyone, but this can happen, this is known as a direct connection, whether this be with , the Universe, God or your intuition the power within is for the individual to choose. We all have different views on this, and that is fine, the connection is the important factor here. If you feel you do not reach this connection but feel inner peace after your meditation then you are doing a good job, you have found the ability to close everything out and find peace. I personally struggled with this for quite a while, I had difficulty switching my brain of, the concentration was hard, I then decided not to concentrate, that maybe I was forcing a situation, so I just surrender myself to myself, and I found myself going to a place that brought me great peace, I do this all the time now, and my difficulty has left me and I can meditate at any time.
I take myself through a beautiful old set of doors, I see the doors in detail, I feel the wood and the iron of the key hole, I walk through and find myself in a patio, a stone patio full of foliage, lush greens and roses, there is a wonderful fragrance in the air, I take this in, I breath in and out slowly enjoying the fragrance as I pass through the patio, onto a beautiful lawn, I can smell the grass freshly cutand feel it below my feet, I can hear the birds, and I can hear water, as I look forward I can see the sky, but it joins a beautiful blue/green ocean, as I continue to move forward I see a big chair placed ahead, when I reach the chair I sit, it is so comfortable and I start to enjoy the sea view with a new fragrance of the ocean below,I can feel a breeze on my face, it moves my hair, I can hear and see the ocean in the distance, this is where I find my bliss, I disconnect and go with the flow,(this is when I listen, or I visualise what I wish for in my life, my goals how I would like to see things ) when I am ready I stand and make my way back to the garden, I cross the freshly cut grass, I once again experience the fragrance of the grass,I enter the inner patio and experience everything it has to offer until I reach the doors, as I pass through the doors and turn to close them, I say goodbye until my next visit. How grateful I am to have my special place.
I hope you have your special place, if you have not found it yet, you are welcome to visit my special place when ever you wish. “Brooke’s Secret Garden”
