Meditation Made Easy
One of the first things we need to do to nurture and build our connection within Cosmic Consciousness, is to be able to connect within to our own inner guidance and to Higher Aspects of ourselves. To do that, for a few minutes each day we need to reduce the static and distraction of normal day to day life that drowns out our inner guidance. Using the analogy of a radio receiver, when there is static you can’t receive a good clean signal. In the same way, normal day to day mental and emotional highs and lows — static – prevent you from connecting within and hearing Divine guidance. One way to reduce this static is to calm the mind and emotions.
How to calm the mind and emotions. For westerners, meditation is a difficult thing. Since Westerners, especially Americans, function in the mundane world primarily through their Mental Body, sitting quietly to meditate seems boring, if not painful and forcing oneself to do it can be a losing cause.
Meditation Techniques offered by PTE Mystery School are designed to work with the Mental Body to slowly release the mind’s control to allow you to learn how to meditate properly being to begin to build a connection within, in your own way; in a way that works specifically for you.
In this section, we offer you a Guided Meditation to ease you into the energetic experience of a tranquil meditation.

Hello everyone, this is Jim and welcome to Tranquil Mind meditation series, Phase I, Session 1, Relaxation Techniques and the Art of Being.
Take a deep breath. Sit on the floor with legs crossed if possible. You may also sit on a chair with feet flat on the floor and shoes off. Sit comfortably with your back straight. You may also lie down if you prefer.
Focus on taking long, gentle deep breaths through your nose. Bring the air deep down, as if it reaches to the base of your spine, oxygenating your body and all the tissues and regenerating them with fresh oxygen. Now exhale through your nose and release, along with the breath, all the pollution and dross from your body.

Now, while you gently breathe in and out, begin to relax your body. Starting with the top of your head, relax all the tension in your head.
Relax your temples, your jaw.
Relax your neck, your shoulders, your arms, your hands and let the tension run out the tips of your fingers.
Now relax your chest. Focus on your breathing and bring your attention to your heart. Focus on your heart beat. Listen to your heart beat. Listen to the rhythm and the pulse of your heart.
It resonates with the sound of I Am, I Am, I Am.
Take slow, gentle, deep breaths, as you repeat, I Am, I Am, I Am.
As you continue to be aware of your heart beating to the rhythm of I Am, feel the tension leave, as you relax your hips, thighs, knees, calves, and out the bottoms of your feet.
Now bring your focus back to your heart and to the sound of I Am, I Am, I Am…..
How to Meditate properly -What happens when we Meditate
When you meditate, you allow the energy of “Being” to permeate through you. When you repeat the mantra, “I Am,” you acknowledge yourself in “Being.” You discover your Divine Source when you allow yourselves to “Be” and when you acknowledge your Beingness through the mantra, “I Am.”
How to Meditate for Beginners-In the fast paced Western way of living, we measure our value by how much we do. We are doers. We are constantly “doing” to accomplish our goal. We make “to do lists” and we go about each day, as fast as we can, trying to cross out as many activities as we can on our lists.
And our lists are outcome based. We measure success by how the outcome of each completed task measures up to our and other’s expectations. This adds an undercurrent of anxiety which further encourages us to “Do” rather than “Be.” We become deeply engrossed in “doing” and while doing, forget about Being. We forget that Being is even an option. We forget to be, “in the moment” and enjoy what transpires in each moment because we are too busy doing and worrying about the outcome.
When we meditate, even if for only a few minutes, we allow ourselves to “Be.
We quiet the mind that is always ready to take us to our next to do list item and we remember our State of Being; we connect with our I Am essence, our own Beingness.
Through meditation, we can create a bridge between Being and Doing. Through meditation we can bring the state of “Being” into our “Doings.”
Guided Meditation Technique to awaken The Witness- Mindfulness Meditation technique
Through meditation, we can awaken the Witness within us. The Witness is the Observer. The Witness is the part of our being that is always there, whether we are awake or asleep, always observing what we are doing, without judgment. Whether we think we succeed or we think we fail, the Witness is always there at our side, perfectly happy in our performance and perfectly happy just to “Be” with us.
The Witness is the bridge to connect our Being Self to our Doing Self. The Witness watches us “Do” and reminds us to “Be.”
We cannot afford to stop doing because this is the nature of our Western world and we need to live in this world. But we can afford to live in Witness Consciousness. We can enjoy living this life and appreciating every moment of doing, while we flow in Being – in I Am, I Am, I Am.
The Witness, who is awakened through meditation, helps us to bring the I Am into the “I Do.” Then we “Do” whatever it is that we do, imbued with the love, the heart energy essence of Being …or … I Am.
Then things take a turn for the better. We live in each moment, enjoying that moment, living each moment of doing, by Being present in the moment.
Then we don’t lose the Joy of the Moment while we rush to end each task by “doing” it as fast as possible; in anxiety over the outcome. We enjoy the moment of Being, knowing that by Being in the moment, it will be good enough.
Then we can merry the Being and the doing, with the Witness as our Guide. The Witness helps us calm down and feel the joy, the bliss, the love and the Light of Being. The Witness calls the I Am and makes the tasks of doing enjoyable.
Take a deep breath, focus on your breath.
Let your heart beat with the rhythm of I Am, I Am, I Am.
Call the Witness to awaken within. It is the Witness who stands by your side always reminding you, I Am, I Am, I Am.
For the next 24 hours, continue to connect to the sound of I Am in rhythm with your heart beat. Connect to the Witness within, continuing to whisper in your ear, I Am, I Am, I Am.
