A free meditation for the enhancement of human connection.
Meditation, peace and calm.
Meditation is a beautiful practice. It can do so many things for the person. There are many reasons to learn to meditate. Meditation can be used for the enhancement of health, emotional balance and life awareness amongst other things. In the West we do not have a culture of teaching or appreciating this beneficial practice. We are largely skeptical and suspicious of it. We often view it as something a bit wacky and “out there. It is something that is not commonly of our culture and seen as a bit pagan even. It is none of those things as it is a very useful tool. I am a meditation teacher and a Hypnotherapist amongst other things and it surprises and saddens me when I come across these views of meditation or even Hypnotherapy. Meditation and Hypnotherapy are very similar practices. They both employ deep relaxation of the person for the enhancement of health and well-being.
We can all meditate as we all go through the place of meditation each time we go to sleep. So we can all do it. People over think what is needed and put a lot of does and don’ts on the practise of it and often make it too complicated. They also try to analyse the process whilst doing it and that should not be done. That will make the process very difficult. Keep it simple and know that it is just deep relaxation without going to sleep.
Before starting to meditate find a safe and comfortable place. You do not have to adopt any kind of complicated posture. Just sit or lay comfortably in a chair, on the floor on a bed.
Go down into relaxation breathe deeply to a pattern of three. So breath in 1, 2, 3 hold he breath 1, 2, 3 and slowly breathe out 1, 2, 3. Keep doing that until you are very deeply relaxed and then follow the instructions on the meditation. May I suggest you record the instructions in real time on a voice recorder and then listen to it? You have to allow yourself time to go down into relaxation and that generally will take ten minutes. Talk yourself into relaxing by saying things like relax your feet, your legs, your arms etc. Take your time and realise that it will take you time to gain a deep relaxation. You could practice on a friend first before recording to see how long it takes you to get them to relax. They key to relaxation is the breath.
Make sure you do not listen to the recording whilst driving as you will be going off to sleep and that will be dangerous to do. This may seem like the obvious but you will be surprised how many of my students and clients say “oh I can listen to this in the car.” No you can’t.

Universal connection through this meditation
This meditation does what it says and it will help to change the person’s outlook. They only have to do the meditation a few times. Even just doing it once will change a person to a degree. It connects you to the universal forces and just by doing this meditation those forces will balance the person and they will gain an enhanced perspective on connection as this meditation is for that purpose.
If you are a meditation teacher and have violent or aggressive pupils this maybe a meditation to give them as it should have a calming effect on them. Any one of that imbalanced state should gain great benefit from this meditation. It is also good for anyone who just wants to enhance their connection to others. This meditation helps the person to feel others on a deeper level that they do at present. This is the meditation to do to enhance connection to the rest of the human race. There are many reasons to want that. To be more in tune with the rest of the human race as a collective or people as individuals can only be a good thing. Anyone dealing with people on a collective or one to one basis will gain great insight and benefit from this meditation. That has to be just about all of us. The insights may take many forms and will be individual to the individual doing the meditation. This meditation connects you to everyone. Well that is not strictly true as you are already connected, what this meditation does it give you deep insight into that connection on a intellectual and energetic level.

Meditation 2: Connecting into Others and Knowing their Needs.
- Take yourself down into relaxation. Now take many shallow slow breaths.
Concentrate on the rhythm of your breathing. Know your own breath pattern. Listen to the rhythm of your own breath. Feel the calmness feel the beauty of each breath.
Know you are an individual.
Know that you are not separate.
Know that you have connection to others of your kind.
You are human and of the human kind.
Know that you have brothers.
Know that you have sisters.
Know that you are one of many.
Know that you are not alone.
- Now bring white light energy into your body. Bring in the source. Ask for the hand of God to guide you. Connect to all that there is.
Send out the vibration of healing. Know that it is in your power to do so. Send out to your brothers and sisters. Understand their needs.
As they hurt, so do you.
As they bleed, so do you.
Send out the ray of compassion; send out the ray of love.
Bring your attention to your own body. Now connect your spirit to others.
Understand that you are one of many.
Understand that you are connected at source.
This is universal law. This is universal truth.
Now send out the vibration of connection. You know this connection on a soul level. Send it out, and stay aware and connected. Walk with your brothers as one.
From this moment on, understand all that is.
Understand you bleed as they do.
Understand you are one of many and walk together as one.
- Now feel the thread of connection and hold in that place for ten minutes.
Now let the connection slowly diminish. However, always hold this knowledge.
This meditation changes you for all time.
Come back to the here and the now.
