Meditation Exercise: Inner Wisdom Dialogue


This is a difficult exercise for some people. For others it is life changing.

1.  Begin by closing your eyes and focusing on your breath. Try to rid the body of any tension you may be feeling and attempt to clear your mind.

2.  When you are ready, open your eyes, grab a pencil and start writing. The easiest way to start is with a question you are struggling with at this point in your life. Write down the answers you receive and continue the conversation. You can envision this meditative exercise as a conversation between you and the Divine. You ask the questions and the Divine answers. Attach whatever name to the Divine you feel the closest relationship with, i.e. Jesus, Brigid, Sophia, Gaia, etc.

3.  When doing this exercise, the key to success is you cannot stop writing and you cannot pause to think. You should let the conversation flow without censoring any of it.

4.  Some people ask me if this exercise is only talking to yourself. My experience with this discipline is that is the wisdom gained from this kind of meditation comes from a deep wisdom source that is part us and part spirit. Some people gain incredible insights from this discipline that surprise and astonish them.
