I have felt that something is missing for the last 2 years since my father died. I don't want to go to church. I do want a spiritual element to my life however. I had wondered about meditation of some kind but really have no clue. Has anyone felt the same and found a way forward?
...Well,you need to Research your Ancestors...Who were they? Where did they Come from? What were Their Beliefs? Some where in Time...They made a Special Spot for You. They Knew that You would Spring Up from Them, and one day, go Searching for that Very Thing that will help to Complete you in This Life. That's where you Start...Sometimes,to go Go Forward, you must look into the Past.I am a Native-American Psychic.Spirituality is not something WE seek...it IS a Part of us. ("Jill").
Are you looking for practical ways on how to feel more centered or are you ready to look into other systems of belief?
Some forms of yoga really help to "regroup" before moving on to still meditation. I love being alone and stilness but still cant do pure meditation unless with a physical activity. The mind can concentrate on the physical routine and free itself from other thoughts. Bybthe time the session end, you are absolutely ready for those 10-15mn of stilness. Helps keep you in shape too.
