Meditation Part 6

The first stage of Peace mediation: Learn to sit erect and relaxed
• Find a comfortable position and sit like a child on your mother’s lap
• Close your eyes to have better control of your senses
• Breathe in deeply, breathe out very slowly, do this gently for a few minutes to remain calm and still
• Bring your attention to each parts of your body from head to foot
• Tell yourself, I am relaxed and I feel the relaxation within

Once you have learned to sit in a relaxed way, you can proceed to the next stage of this meditation.

Second stage of Peace meditation: Reconciliation and Forgiveness
• Try to recall faces of people with whom you often interact and work with in your daily life
• Try to recollect the faces of people who have hurt your feelings or who have humiliated you and wounded you including those whom you have hurt and wounded
• Send them the vibrations of peace, good wishes and blessings. Continue this process until you no longer feel your anger, hatred and resentment towards them
• This may often take some time. Once you have done it a number times over a number of days, you will be fully freed of your negative feelings

• Concentrate fully on your breathing (in and out)
• Try to remain in communion with yourself, creator (God ) and with nature
• Bring your attention from head to foot and say a word of thank you to different parts of your body
• Send vibrations of peace, harmony and blessings of good wishes to whoever you wish
