Some meditations are like a science, you do things a very specific way for a very specific time, that is part of what makes them so powerful. Kundalini Yoga meditations are like this. I loved so much about it, but it was also hard for me to “succeed” with it. Until I allowed myself flexibility with it. I now do my own type of meditating, but sometimes I am led to a specific kundalini meditation and enjoy it for 40 days, then I will move on and do something else.

I think that it is that way for a lot of things. We think we have to “_____” a certain way or it doesn’t count. So we lose momentum and stop and then we get no benefits.

I think if you want to try something new, pray to determine if it is a good choice for you at this time.  If it is – commit to do it for 40 days

Re-evaluate and pray after the 40-days to see if you should continue with it.

There are some basic things you know you want to do daily for the rest of your life.
• Scripture Study
• Prayer
• Meditation

However, there is a lot of flexibility in doing those things!

I would love it if you have created a lifelong meditation practice, using the framework of the 3 phases. Even if you do the 3 phases in 3 minutes every day you would get a wonderful benefit from the consistency. You may have times in your life when you can meditate for 15 minutes a day. Yay for you for those 40 days! However, if you have a day where you can only manage a total of 3 minutes, it is OK!!!! Or even have a season of life (newborn baby) where you can only manage 3 minutes a day meditating while you are half asleep feeding your baby in the middle of the night, that is OK too!

Knowing it can look different depending on your circumstances and that it can bless you any way is liberating and allows greater success!

Phase 1: Sing “I am a Child of God” and imagine the steps of grounding and shielding as you sing!
Phase 2: Set your timer
Using your finger movements – with a NEW MANTRA
Sing or Chant: “Peace, Be Still” a few times
Whisper “Peace, Be Still” a few times
Silently think Peace (breathing in for about 4 beats)
Pause (2,3,4)
Be (2 beats) Still (2 beats)
Pause (2,3,4)
Whisper “Peace, Be Still” a few times
Sing or Chant: “Peace, Be Still” a few times
(Just have fun playing with these different ways you can include sound in your meditations)
Phase 3: Now pause and be “silent”
Letting your thoughts float by.
