Meditation Method for Quieting Your Mind


A quiet mind is a peaceful mind. A peaceful mind is a mind that is joined in awareness with its Source.

There are many ways to quiet your mind to become aware of your Source—to become aware of the Presence of Love within you. Some of the methods we typically hear about include: doing what we love, listening to music, being in nature, being present with another or with an activity we are engaged in, and consciously breathing. All of these examples, and any other example that helps us to quiet our minds, have something in common—they are all demonstrations of relating with love.

When we relate to anything with love, we are joined in awareness with Holy Spirit, the Voice for Love within each of us. When we relate in a loving way to any thought, feeling, sensation, person, circumstance or any other “thing” we can identify or “label” in any way, we are joined in awareness with the Love of God within us. The mere fact of relating with love immediately restores our awareness to its true nature.

In this moment, you can pick anything that you are aware of to practice this. You can pick something that you see with your eyes, something you hear with your ears, something you feel emotionally or physically, something you visualize within your mind, or any other thought or belief that you become aware of within you, take any one of those items and simply relate to it in a loving way. Relate to it with compassion, understanding, kindness, acceptance, a blessing, gratitude, or any other “flavor of love” you can imagine. When you do, you are in fact joining with the Source of all Love within you, which is God.

When you join with God in this way—consciously, with intention, and an open heart—your mind will become quiet because you are thinking with the Holy Spirit. When you relate with love, you’re relating with the consciousness of Holy Spirit. When you are joined with that consciousness, the ego becomes quiet and you quickly find yourself in that quiet place within where God’s voice can be heard.

You can practice this process with your eyes closed in “meditation,” or you can practice this with your eyes open while moving about the world, relating to whatever you notice in a loving way.

Practice relating to what you become aware of in the world in this loving way, and see what happens when you do. Notice if your mind quiets down when you relate with love. Notice what happens to your judgments, fears, and resistance the moment you open your heart and relate to anything with love. Love is the one element that heals all things. If you are looking to heal your mind and restore yourself to that quiet place within, relate to yourself, your mind, and everything you become aware of with Love, and watch the miracles unfold.
