We have become so caught up in the external world that we have forgotten what it means to be an inner being, we have forgotten who we are. We need to look within. What we achieve externally with our life has no great meaning. When our life comes to an end we are separated from all possessions and people. We all have to go through this. Death is certain, we will have to let go of everything. Life also passes quickly, even 70 or 80 years is not a long time.
How to Meditate: A Practical Guide
Ask someone who is old and they will tell you that you have no time to waste and that it is important to make the most of life. Thinking like this everyday helps us to focus on what is important and to let go of what is not important. We can take nothing with us when we die, except our inner qualities. This is why it is so important to become an inner being, someone who is trying to develop his or her inner qualities.
This book is a great way to start this journey it clearly explains how to begin and progress along the path of meditation and also contains many ideas and techniques for advanced Reiki practitioners. Reiki, especially when combined with meditation and Buddhist wisdom, can help us change inside. It can help us become inner beings and gradually let go of our desire for external development and temporary pleasure.
This is a fantastic journey to begin. It is a journey of self-discovery. It is a journey of life. It is about discovering the real meaning of life. It is our inner life that is our real life, it is when we start to look within that our life really begins. This is our real birthday! Chapter 1 What is Reiki? Chapter 2 What is Meditation? Why Meditation? How to Meditate Which Practice? Chapter 8 Overcoming other obstacles Outer disturbances of sound and noise Physical discomforts and the body Overcoming physical sensations and imagery Changes that comes through Meditation.
Before we begin the meditation we should prepare the space for meditation. This includes setting up our meditation chair or cushion and making sure that family members; including pets are not going to disturb our session. We should remember to switch off our mobile phone and set our telephone to the silent mode or simply unplug it from the socket. Once we have set up the space around us we establish a sound postures of meditation.
The second stage is to establish our intention. When we commence a meditation it is important to state which meditation we wish to commence. Establishing intention also means to cultivate the right motivation for doing the meditation practice. The four contemplations just explained are an excellent way to cultivate the right motivation. When we meditate we should do it for the right reasons and that wish is to benefit others.
These four thoughts motivate us to meditate. Most importantly we should think that we not only do our meditation practice purely for our own sake but for the benefit of all existence. When we come from a place that shares the good with others it helps us to cultivate the richness of mind. In Buddhism this is known as cultivating bodhichitta which translates to generating the mind for enlightenment. Bodhichitta includes the aspiration to become an enlightened being in order to help others with the upmost love and compassion.
It might be hard at first to genuinely experience this feeling of love and compassion for all beings therefore it is sometimes easier to begin with those we are close to, us such as our family, friends, loved ones, children and even our pets. This in itself is a meditation practice. Which ever way we choose to generate our intention and motivation this should be done before we commenced our meditation session as this sets the scene for what will follow. Just in the same way as taking on a journey to a place we've never being, establishing a sound motivation is like checking the roadmap and coming to an understanding of how to achieve that destination in the most care-free, simple and most beneficial manner.
The Body of the Meditation Once we have established our intention we calm our mind by becoming aware of the coming and going of the breath at the tip of our noses and we let all of the thoughts and feelings just go by:. Watching the breath helps us to hold the mind in one place. Once we have stilled the mind we then bring something beneficial out from this place.
We also balance and harmonise the inner and outer energies in the body through the awareness of the breath. Form this place the body of the meditation commences. In this third phase we spent the most time and hopefully achieve the greatest rewards. When thoughts come and go it is like being in a busy railway station. We observe the trains coming into the station and stopping. We then see people getting on board and then we see the trains leaving. Attending to our meditation is noticing the trains coming and going rather than hopping on and going on a journey.
Depending on the meditation practice that you are doing this may also involve a building up phase where we generate forms of energy and light out of space or imagine channels of energy throughout our body.

This additional phase of activity is where we interact with forms of energy and light according to the particular practice. Whenever we do meditations of this kind is it important to dissolve these visualizations which I will explain in the following section. Many meditations presented in this book have a dissolving phase. What this means is that whatever is imagined or produced in mind is put away back into mind. It is not common that we will leave what we have generated in the practice out in space. We can think of the dissolving phase like packing away our luggage after being on long journey.
When we leave our hotel and we don't leave all our things lying around, we pack them away neat and tidy and take our bag with us.

It is like putting a signature at the end of a letter and remembering to write our full stops at the end of a sentence. When we engage in a dissolving phase we mix everything that we have generated in mind back into ourselves. In this way we recognize that it is not something which is permanent or fixed nor is it something which resides outside ourselves but is something which has sprung forth from our unlimited potential and in this way is self-empowering and cultivates self-reliance.
Every time we complete a meditation we generate some positive energy. Despite the perceived results of our meditation some good has occurred simply by doing it. The reason for this is that meditation is a non-ordinary activity and by simply engaging in meditation we will generate positive energies within our body and our environment. If you have something which is good then why not share it? When we dedicate the merit we think that whatever peace of mind happiness and joy that has been generated by doing the meditation, that it be shared not only for our benefit but for the benefit of all the lives.
We may choose to make this dedication in a general sense or if there is someone we know that could really benefit or someone who is in need we can think that all the merit that has been generated from this practice the now shared for the person concerned. When sharing the merit for another we make the wish that they may regain their health or that they may receive some positive energy as a result of the meditation. Sharing the merit is a little bit like making wishes for others. When sharing this intention it also empowers our life energy. We do it because we realise that we are just one and there are many.
Sharing the merit also generates a feeling of generosity and a sense of sharing. As a result we start to see the world in an unlimited fashion, abundant and full of potential. Lawrence gives detailed descriptions about the various aspects of meditation and Reiki practices. Furthermore the reader receives enhanced knowledge on practical points and inspiration for their daily mediation. This is a gentle, compassionate work! Specific practices are described; postures are illustrated; and an audio CD with guided meditation is included.
This is a great way for a Reiki practitioner to learn more about meditation. Lawrence Ellyard's comprehensive text shows how to combine them for greater peace and healing in our own lives and for our clients. This beautiful book enhances the practice of Reiki for the benefit of all beings. Meditation should be an integral part of any serious practitioners engagement with the system of Reiki. This book contains enough material, tips and advice on how to incorporate the method into you daily Reiki routine to satisfy not only the beginner but seasoned Reiki Masters as well.
Lawrence Ellyard has yet again established his position as one of the most knowledgeable Reiki Masters teaching today. Highly recommended. It is a blessing to anyone who wishes to take their Reiki practice deeper. It is incredible to think that just a few years ago, reiki was considered to many to be fringe woo-woo stuff, but through teachers like Lawrence Ellyard and his Reiki Institute, it has become a well established healing and spiritual practice that has even been adopted by mainstream hospitals. I must admit when I was asked to review a book on Reiki meditations I expected a rather dry affair covering the same old ground.
But I was delighted to find that the book offers a very clear disposition of Reiki as a path and practice, and the traditional roots of Reiki at that. There are other books with more details, but I am yet to come across one that covers the subject so elegantly and succinctly. In reading these pages, it is obvious to me that Ellyard has completely integrated the knowledge enabling him to elucidate Reiki wisdom so clearly, a true Master of his trade. I would recommend the book also to meditators, both because Reiki is an excellent place to begin a meditation practice and because Lawrence covers the subject extremely well.
The accompanying CD contains six guided meditations spoken by Lawrence. The sound quality is good and he speaks with a tempo and pattern that is easy to follow. The CD enables the practitioner to take what they have learnt through the book and put it into instant practice in an accurate way. Teaching the basics of meditation combined with an introduction to Reiki, this book and CD is for anyone wanting to cultivate inner happiness and peace in their daily life, whether a beginner or an experienced Reiki Practitioner. It is a practical and easy-to-follow guide which gives detailed descriptions on a variety of different meditations, drawn from traditional Japanese Reiki, Buddhism, yoga, creative visualization and the author's own inner wisdom.
It gives a lot of good advice on how to start mediation, and how to deal with the initial obstacles which may arise.
