Visualization of a Diety
- From our web site, Meditation Station
this is technique #21, and may be what was
being looked for in the post titled "Love".
In any event, it contains 3 ways to, as was
mentioned in the Love post, "surrender to
divine and ask him for help" Enjoy!
Visualization of a Diety
When a pharmacist goes about preparing a prescription,
he or she always uses a container of perfect purity to
place the healing medication into. Similarly, when
preparing to fill our consciousness with healing meditation,
we must be sure it is free of impurities. So, begin doing
this and every meditation, by using whatever techniques
you have found work best for you, and bring about a state
of alert, peaceful tranquility to your mind, body, and
emotions. Be ready to receive all the pure, holy energy
the universe can fill you with.
There are actually 3 different traditional techniques that
deal with visualizing a deity. The first and second ones are
applicable to those meditators whose relationship with the
divine includes their God manifesting in human form. The
third one can be done both by followers of human form deities
and by those whose vision of God is as light or energy or power.
The first method directs us to see our deity with as much
detail as possible. If it is a male biblical figure, for
instance, see Him as clearly as possible. Start with His holy
feet. See them gracing the earth with His presence. Then, work
your way up the body/ robe being aware of every little detail.
See His hands reaching out to you to take your suffering, your
offering, to calm you, to carry you. See His serene, compassionate
face glowing with Love. This technique brings the deity to life. It
will then interact with you.
The next technique has you visualizing yourself kneeling in
front of your savior. Once again see this scene in as great
a detail as you can. Make an offering to Him - perhaps your
sadness, or your pain, or your promise to act charitably. See
the deity accept it and fill you with blissful, endless loving
energy. Every deity has come for the purpose of easing our pain. See
His pleasure in doing this for you. Feel the freedom and love
fill you and know and feel Gratitude.
The 3rd technique deals with the concept/reality of omnipresence.
Start by realizing/visualizing your deity filling you completely as
air fills a balloon. For if God is God, (S)He is everywhere, in
everything. Then visualize your deity filling someone you know. Then
see Him in everyone on earth. Then, in everything that lives on earth
- within all things in the air, in the waters, on and in the earth.
Now, see this deity filling the Earth, the Sun and the whole solar
system. Now see the deity filling the Milky Way and then as big as all
the galaxies. See and feel the unity of everything in the universe
filled with God and realize that the same energy filling everything is
filling every atom, every molecule, every cell that makes you up and
is filling you now and forever.
You are a part of the Kingdom of God and not apart from it. Know and
feel this and live happily ever after.
