Your Fave Self-Healing Meditation?

Your Fave Self-Healing Meditation?

A friend went to a workshop that helped her identify her unique intuition type. Did she receive her intuitions visually (was she mostly clairvoyant)? From a gut knowing (was she mostly clairsentient)? By “hearing” her insights (was she mostly clairaudient)? Exhibiting some wonderful imagery when asked to think of something, she and her teacher identified her intuitive strength as that of a clairvoyant.

I always found it interesting that we have our own unique intuitive abilities, and we are stronger in some than others. When I began to uncover my own intuitive potential I found myself wanting to develop all of them. My friend’s next question to me was similar, which is how do I improve my intuition? What techniques are best?

A pivotal experience in my life in this regard was the training I had in One Light Healing Touch, which taught me to develop my intuition–so crucial for being a good healer–by healing myself. We learned to do this by receiving healings, learning and practicing energy clearing techniques, and by setting up a practice of steady meditations.

Find techniques that help you bring your personality into check so that it doesn’t block or interfere with what your intuition is telling you. I, for example, am clearer and clearer in regard to receiving the correct messages, but I find my personality still has a stubborn habit of then jumping in and giving an often incorrect interpretation!

I expect others of you on this “path” have similar objectives and questions, and are always eager to learn more, so I thought I’d open this article up to ask you to share your best “personality clearing” (a phrase just dubbed by me) techniques. Here are mine (and note, too that we have almost 200 meditation exercises on Care2.)

* The six positions meditation, on a CD by Ron Lavin, said teacher of One Light Healing Touch. I did that meditation every day for about three years and it helped in countless ways.

* Here’s my favorite meditation from a book, by Adyashanti.

And my personal, most insightful meditation.

Thanks for sharing, very helpful and full of resources, I think I'm into most styles you mentioned and it's always good to get to know ourselves better because we can be who we are meant to be rather than what others want us to be and this intition helps greatly.

repeat after me repeat after me, when i think of my healing at 23,it is not something that has always been on my mind,years have gone and i have not thought about it. Now at 60, i am kind of speechless to describe my thoughts on it, like the first time you find nothing, while meditating,undescribable. So, i find Yin Yoga and repetition of one Mantra a life continuos,everyday Joy.

I studied many styes when I was little. Mostly because the adults around me thought I wouldn't be hyper.
I find varitey keeps functionablity.
Some times quiet sitting ,a moment out playing events,full stop a happy place with an ocean of quiet,and I'm still trying to master an active meditation style (often adsociated with Kung-Fu)to make exercise more rewarding.

Loved this post! Loved the blue ones and I'd love to find a veiled lady in person. There are also In…

If it hurts, don't use it. Pain doesn't teach anything positive.

Creative thinking and experimentation, but I will stick with eggs.
