Connecting to the Supreme Universal Intelligence

Last month we touched on the idea that our highest quest for human growth is to discover our ultimate Self-Reality. It sounds good, but what does it all mean? The  relationship between man-woman and the Universe, and how do we experience this Supreme Universal Intelligence (God)?

Meditation, for it is the key to contacting and maintaining contact with the Ultimate Intelligence (God).  Meditation doesn’t have to be complex, or long. It’s about getting quiet long enough so that the connection happens.  Let’s see what just ten minutes could look like: Select a quiet space in your home where there is less chance of being disturbed. Wear comfortable clothes. Sit in an upright position, and quiet your mind. Granted, the quite your mind part is the more difficult one! I like to put meditation music on, which is easy enough to find on the web these days if you don’t already have. Close your eyes and begin to focus on your breathing, in and out through your nose. Slow and steady using a three part technique. Fill your stomach (diaphragm), chest and then shoulders, rhythmically, and evenly, building from 5 seconds up to whatever you can do. The exhale will be the same, breathing out in three parts, evenly with no hesitation or stopping. Quite your mind, and if a thought comes up, just let it pass. Continue to focus on your breath, relaxing into it. Before you know it ten minutes will lead to twenty and you will have started the process of stilling the mind to make the ultimate connection. Once you’re comfortable with this practice and as you perfect it, the good stuff will begin! Images, and colors to name a few will start to appear in your inner vision. At this point I would like to mention that images whether coming from your inner or out vision are basically the same, that is to say real. Don’t be startled this is the beginning of your journey!

I’d like to briefly go over another meditation that I use, after doing the above mentioned. That is Affirmative meditation, this practice will help bring those things into your life that you are wanting to experience. With your eyes still closed, and your breathing a little more relaxed. Begin to give yourself a self-programming affirmation, or series of them. They should be said to yourself with your inner voice, slowly and deliberately so that the meaning is instilled in your mind. This is aimed at the sub-conscious part of the mind (memory bank) which governs 90% of one’s conscious decision making. Use it to maintain a positive attitude or to change an old belief pattern. The choice is yours.   

As the Ultimate Mind or God-Power within you takes hold of your life, many things should take place, not all at once, but you will begin to detect changes in and around you, from relationships to intuitive feelings getting stronger and clearer. In short, you will have connected to this Supreme Ultimate Intelligence, Spirit, or God-Mind!

Until next time,

What I believe!

I was asked recently can one be Metaphysical and a Christian, so I thought that I would share my thoughts on the subject. You see, I’ve considered myself to be a Christian for the majority of my life, considering I attended all Catholic schools throughout childhood and even attended an all girl High School at a convent. Which of course created issues within itself!  
As an adult I was able to lay to rest the guilt and conflicts that are often a result of the Catholic dogma. You know what I mean, you’re a sinner and you must live a life full of our rules so that you may be worthy of eternal happiness when you die. Well, to the average person that statement may seem normal, but to me it just raised a red flag. What about happiness here and now doesn’t that matter? At that point I started moving away from the Catholic church, and started seeking answers in the “Christian” world. Which of course presented a whole other list of rules. I remember one church I attended. The single ladies had to sit in a area by themselves, as did the single men, and the married couples could sit with each other (what a concept)! They still had Wednesday night Bible study, and their interpretations weren’t too far off from the “Catholics”. The only difference I could see was that the “Christians” didn’t have saints, and didn’t kneel throughout their service.
I still had many unanswered questions. Then one day I started searching for answers that made sense to me, and that is what lead me to Metaphysics. You see within these teachings you are taught that not only is God within you, but you have a direct connection to the “Creator”. That got my attention, but what else is there?
This is what I found: The highest quest of human growth and awareness is to discover your ultimate Self-Reality; i.e. the relationship of man-woman and the Universe. To know that there is a Supreme Universal Intelligence, or God that resides somewhere in the deeper levels of the human mind. To make direct contact with this Supreme Universal Intelligence Mind, or God. To experience this presence. “Know the truth and the truth shall set you free.” This is the realization of oneness with the Creator. Then to bring it forth into the conscious mind and surface daily life. Finally be guided intuitively in every action you take. How do you begin? Meditation, and that my friend is another article, for there are many methods, but the main thing to remember is to quiet yourself and listen.      
You see you are not a sinner, but simply here to experience life. To expand anyway you so choose for this is a free will zone. Yes, free will. There is no good or bad, right or wrong, black or white, it just is. Get out of judgments and separation.  You either get on the path of life and take the short road (meaning doing things that better serve you) or you get on that path and take the long route, (lots of detours, and hardships) but in the end lessons have been learned. How else are we to grow?
You see it isn’t about religion and which one is right or righter! It’s about connecting to the truth; you are Divine created in the image of God. That means something! Wakeup know how important you are, and that you are here on Mother Earth for a reason. Get on the path of life and live each day as the blessing it truly is, and the blessing you truly are!
