Meditation Tips # 1: Explore Different Meditation Approaches

by Laurie Sue Brockway

Meditation can help you feel calmer and have a clearer mind. It can also assist you to communicate directly to the Goddess when you need healing and help with stress.

The more you make a conscious effort to connect with the healing goddess you want to work with, the closer you will become to establishing a direct channel to Her. Eventually, she will visit more frequently and you will experience her healing grace with greater ease.

You may not have a particular goddess, so asking to connect with the healing powers of the Goddess is a good way to start. Clarifying the types of meditations you like will also help you in developing a more consistent practice. It should never feel forced. Let’s start by looking at a few different types. Explore and see which one works best for you. If you find something that helps you create the desired divine connection, try to commit to using this approach consistently, as part of your ongoing spiritual practice. Here are some ideas:


  • Guided journey: Sometimes, it helps to hear a voice leading you through an experience. It is easy to find meditations that can be downloaded from the Internet, as well as finding teachers who offer them live. Search for a meditation that fits with your journey with the Goddess.


  • Meditative musical chants: There are many chants that can be used to connect with the healing goddesses. Try listening to an audio or video of the chant that calls to you. Some chants will be in different language and that is okay. Translate them into your native tongue so you can follow along in your own way but also learn to allow yourself to surrender to the sound and music, which often has healing properties.


  • Mini meditation: This helps you make a quick connection with the goddess in times of anxiety or discomfort. Concentrate on your breath and the rise and fall of your chest. On the inhales, you think “I am,” and on the exhales, you think “connected to the goddess of healing.” And repeat: “I am … connected to the Goddess of healing.” This can be done anytime, anywhere. You can close your eyes or keep them open. Either way, it’s something you can do multiple times in a day.


  • Movement and dancing meditation. Ancient cultures speak of stories of the goddess entering devotees as they dance. Find a piece of music that is like a meditation to you. It can be one that brings you through an emotional journey, and it can also be straight-up empowering and fun. If you can stand and dance, do it as if no one is watching. And if you are chair bound, move your arms, shoulders, hands and feet and try to move your head to the beat. Close your eyes and feel the Goddess moving through you, healing you.


  • Nature meditation: if you thrive on walking through nature, immerse yourself in the healing powers of the goddess of the land through walking or sitting meditations. Surround yourself with the sights, sounds, and smells that make you feel whole. If you can’t get out, bring Her to you by finding soothing sounds, images, or videos online that bring you in a healing and peaceful state with the Goddess.
