Do the ascended masters consider that meditation, especially bare awareness meditation, is an effective tool for attunement to the I AM Presence and ascended masters? Should students who are new to both ascended master teachings and meditation, learn meditation as a tool for attunement? Should students who are already experiencing meditation use it as a tool for attunement?
Answer from the Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar – Ending the Era of Ideology.
Well, there are many different forms of meditation. And there are some meditations that are aimed at giving you what you can call bare awareness or pure awareness, where you go into a state of mind where you experience what we talked about when we say that the Conscious You can step out of its normal perception filter and just experience itself as pure awareness. And this is a valuable tool for most people. There are some people who should not do this because they are not ready for it. But for many people, it can be a valuable tool.
I am not thereby saying that all ascended master students should do this. But however as the question is formulated, I would not say that this kind of meditation is suited for attunement. The purpose of this kind of meditation is to help you experience pure awareness, naked awareness, awareness without thoughts, without any structure. And this is valuable for you realizing there is an alternative to your normal awareness that is so full of thoughts and feelings and structures.
But in order to attune to the ascended masters, you do not need naked awareness, empty awareness, you need to attune to the vibration of the ascended masters. And for that, I would more recommend that you use our decrees and invocations especially for new people.
You will often find that many people who are new to the teachings need to go through a period where they establish spiritual protection, they transform the inharmonious energies in their four lower bodies and they use Astrea to be cut free from any ties to the collective consciousness or lower beings. During this period, it can be difficult to attune, it can also be difficult to experience pure awareness.
But when you get beyond this period, you can still use invocations and decrees. But once in a while, be still. Just sit and try to be in an open and neutral frame of mind. This does not necessarily mean that you do not have any thoughts and you certainly do not need to go into straining to suppress thoughts, but you can strive to be as open and neutral as possible. After you have given decrees, after you have listened to a dictation, just spend a few minutes just sitting there and attuning to the presence of the master.
You can of course also give a novena, we have a novena to the Great Divine Director where you take the decree to the Divine Director you give it nine times a day and then after you have given the decrees you have a notepad and you write down without judging, without analyzing, whatever comes to you. You can do the same with any master for whom there is a decree. You can also, if you prefer this, do this after listening to a dictation, you can practice this exercise of just sitting with a notebook, writing whatever comes to you without judging or analyzing.
