Let Go Meditation
I had and still have a hard time meditating. I’m ADHD and dyslexic and the left side of my mind doesn’t want to let go of thoughts, problems and ideas to meditate. So, I have to give it something to do, so it will allow me to shift to the right side of my brain and take a trip without leaving the farm. You’ll see me give readings with a small clear quartz crystal or a Guerrero amethyst crystal in my left hand so that my left side of my brain has something to play with. Kind of like a fidget spinner for kids. The song that I used to help me meditate is called Let Go by Frou Frou. I would either hit the repeat button on the CD player or my phone as I started to meditate. The left side of my brain will listen to every word of the lyrics until about the third or fourth time, then like clicking a switch, I’d shift over to the right side of my brain, like I was free. I would faintly here the music in the back of my head but no lyrics. I must have listened to Let Go thousands of times to get to the magical other side of my brain to talk to my guides, angels or higher self. Meditation is the only true time I can totally relax. It doesn’t have to be the same song. I’ve meditated to Turn To Stone by ELO, Lovely Day by Bill Withers, The Dance by Garth Brooks, Love Song by The Cure, A Thousand Miles by Vanessa Carlton. Just find something that has a really good repeating chorus that you find yourself really getting into. Hit the repeat button and relax. You will feel the shift. In your head make a room for yourself. Mine is an Adobe cabin in New Mexico. Yours can be in a garden or at the beach. Smell the air so you sense the shift. In my room in my mind, I have a leather sofa, leather chairs, a fireplace and a fire pit in the middle of the floor, a big TV screen so guides or spirit can show me videos, a blackboard so they can write, and I invite all of them and my loved ones to come in the room so they can teach, tell me things I need to know, or give me ideas. It’s that simple. You don’t have to sit cross-legged on the floor, chanting a mantra. You can do what works for you as I started out. Now I do all kinds of breathe work, prayers, with light back ground music and a scented candle or incense to trigger my left brain to the shift that is coming. You will never stop learning. Don’t stop trying to meditate if you first don’t make it. Remember that meditation can aid in the journey for the rest of your life.
