Hi, it’s Joeaux and I am sitting here in one of my favorite meditation spots and that is out here in nature. I have a little flat rock that I can sit and meditate on and that’s what I wanna talk to you about today, I’m gonna call it The 5 Minute Meditation. You know, there’s the one-minute miracle cure and the one-minute manager, this is the five-minute meditation.
The 5 Minute Meditation
I discovered recently after years of meditating, that I personally could connect to spirit in a shorter, faster time than sitting in the silence for hours and hours on end. Now don’t get me wrong, I love both. I love sitting in the silence it just gives you such a sense of peace. What I found out though was that when you do a five-minute meditation, and I, you know, suggest you try it, there’s a lot of power in numbers, right?
We talk about double digit all the time. And once I started setting my timer for a five-minute meditation as part of my spiritual practice I found that what would happen is right at 4:44 I would connect with spirit.
Now how do I know I connect with spirit?
I don’t feel separate at all, you know, I am just with spirit, that’s it. And I’m guessing that, you know, this is part of the new paradigm shift. Is that at as we start to see 4:44 more, we used to be at seeing 1:11 now we’re starting to see 4:44, we’re starting to shift into new innate abilities, a new paradigm of connecting with our innate, connecting with God, connecting with spirit, whatever you wanna call it, your higher self, whatever you wanna call it.
But, you know, that part of you that you are one with the world, one with God. And it just made me laugh because here I’ve spent decades or a decade meditating, doing silent retreats which I highly recommend, they’re great practice as well, but tempting and attempting and attempting to connect with spirit and really what I was doing in my meditation was just being still.
Meditation is a discipline
I don’t think I ever really connected with spirit. The thing about meditation is it’s a practice, it’s a discipline to help you witness your ego, to help you witness your thoughts, to help you see that, you know, your mind is actually trying to control your experience of the world. And in the five-minute meditation what I do is I just drop in, and when I say drop in, what does that mean?
For me, it means to close my eyes and I sense my pineal gland which is here in the center of your head. I sense it, I visualize it, I just throw my energy into my pineal gland and then I just sit and wait. And the whole time I just keep saying, “Connect to spirit, connect to spirit, connect to spirit,” and then every single time, 4:44, there it is, there’s my connection.
It may happen faster for you, I seem to be kind of a slow learner. But I just had to share that with you, that connection with the double-digit number of 4:44. See, there’s the wind picking up, spirit telling me, “You are right on the money, Joy. You got it.” So take that to your meditation and see if you experience anything with the five-minute meditation, and please, please write your comments below because I love to hear what your experience is, too.
