in the stillness


sitting still.

as this winter sets in we realize the beauty within her hibernation state. we must sit still with our thoughts long enough to quiet them so we can actually hear what the universe is saying. the winter is the earth’s season of meditation. it is here in between her thoughts where the soul resides.

everything quiet.

Stillness is the first requirement for manifesting your desires, because in stillness lies your connection to the field of pure potentiality that can orchestrate an infinity of details for you. Imagine throwing a little stone into a still pond and watching it ripple. Then, after a while, when the ripples settle down, perhaps you throw another little stone. That’s exactly what you do when you go into the field of pure silence and introduce your intention. In this silence, even the faintest intention will ripple across the underlying ground of universal consciousness, which connects everything with everything else.

Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet.
It is a way of entering into the quiet that is already there –
buried under the 50,000 thoughts
the average person thinks every day.

BREATHE DEEPLY & REPEAT.

let time stand still…


the gap is the window, the corridor, the transformational vortex through which the personal psyche communicates with the cosmic psyche.

slip into your gap.

Silence is the great teacher, and to learn its lessons you must pay attention to it. There is no substitute for the creative inspiration, knowledge, and stability that come from knowing how to contact your core of inner silence.

Metaphysically speaking, selenite is known to help with awareness, understanding the deeper meaning in any given situation and strengthening decisions. Selenite is a calming crystal that instills peace and is an excellent stone for meditation. Holding a piece of Selenite in the hand is said to help drain any negative energy from the body while a large piece of Selenite placed in the house is said to ensure a peaceful atmosphere. Meditating with your crystals can be extremely beneficial. It is a safe and simple way to balance a person’s physical, emotional, and mental states. Meditating with crystals can bring a new dimension to the practice of meditation. Choosing a crystal with fault lines or patterns within it may help you to ‘lose yourself’ within the crystal while meditating.

During meditation your metabolism and your breath rate go down to a level of rest, twice that of deep sleep.

slow,

slower…

slowest.


 Meditation is the dissolution of thoughts in Eternal awareness and Pure consciousness without objectification, knowing without thinking, merging infinitude in infinity.




NOW, FOCUS ON THE GAP.

One thought on “in the stillness

  1. Ashley, you’ve done it again. What energy! You have inspired me to continue on with my attempt to meditate. The trick is to set the time aside and to JUST DO IT! Yoga is the closest I get. Additionally, I am most impressed by your gorgeous last image of the winter forest in the snow (and you, the “I don’t like winter” girl!). Meditation is truly a gift to open the universe. You are finding the GAP! Much love, T
