I have been practicing meditation for 34 years. Falling into a state of meditation is now a habit; I can now leave the world of conscious thought for a very short period of time and become refreshed. If I lie down, or even sit in the right mindset, I find myself transported to a place of absolute inner peace.
Meditation is not a religious activity; it is instead a listening activity. I was taught to let go of all thought. “No mind,” is what my Renzi Zen Buddhist teacher called the practice. It has become a ‘letting go’ of the thousands of thoughts passing through my brain every day. We have all heard the saying, “Let go and let God.” I often wonder how any of us can even hear God.
Last week, I was in the passenger seat of a car moving along with ten lanes of traffic! There were six commuter lanes and two frontage road lanes on either side. Because the city was in Mexico, all ten lanes were exposed to bikes, motorcycles, and even pedestrians. There were ambulance sirens, car horns, cell phones, megaphones selling wares or political ideas, screeching tires, and many radios with deep bass sounds moving out fifty or more feet away from a vehicle. There are no noise ordinances in Mexico!
Soon silence will have passed into legend. Man has turned his back on silence. Day after day he invents machines and devices that increase noise and distract humanity from the essence of life, contemplation, meditation ~ Jean Arp
I was not driving the car, because there is nothing that makes me feel more panicked and anxious than intense traffic. This is not about me being a coward, I know better than that. I used to be a flight instructor. Flying a single engine airplane upside down is not scary, nor is killing the engine and gliding to the ground. Two years ago, I was in a light sailboat during a tsunami and I was not once fearful. Diving into the ocean in a thin bikini with no protection is also not a problem for me. Standing on top a tall swaying windmill, to add oil, is something I can do. However, every time I am caught in traffic and noise, my body is frozen with terror. Petrified.
My job as a psychic is to be a listening, compassionate conduit. I cannot hear or think clearly when the noise, smells, and moving traffic are so intensely distracting. Knowing what I need means that I do not do psychic readings when there is a lack of opportunity to reach into a meditative state for an answer. Here in my rural office, on a cobble stone street, I may hear a burro walk by, or a rooster crow. That nature noise is not a major interference like a mass of cars, trucks, and other man-made objects.
I wish that all seekers would also find a quiet place to hear what I, or any other psychic, have worked so hard to obtain for them. Every message from Spirit, inside or outside a state of meditation, is sacred insight. What is being shared should ideally be given and received in the same place of calmness as meditation.
