  • Likhita Japa Mantra Meditation * Wicca-Spirituality.com
    kept purely for Likhita While you can do Likhita with any implements you have at hand when you use the tools repeatedly and only for Likhita they build up a resonance of the Mantra This makes it easier for you to enter into the spirit of the Mantra Likhita Mandalas Another way to practice is to create or colour drawings using the Mantra as lines and shading You can draw anything this way representational or abstract Many people colour pictures of deities with Likhita to bring another level of Divine consciousness to the practice This definitely has greater results than random drawings Another powerful way to practice Likhita is to create mandalas with your Mantra Mandalas are a potent and lovely spiritual practice in their own right Combining the two forms of meditation multiplies the benefits you receive from both This mandala for example I made using the Flower of Life mandala template from the Spiritual Mandala Templates Kit Sacred Doodling On a practical level writing the Mantra can help in day to day tasks Doing Likhita Japa as a form of sacred doodling when you would otherwise be allowing your mind to wander restlessly or wallow in negativity is very beneficial Even if you write the Mantra while sitting in a meeting or classroom or talking on the phone will help re awaken your consciousness to Divine virtues Though this does not substitute for a pure Likhita meditation practice you will make good use of otherwise injurious mental gaps Tools for Likhita Japa Any pen and journal book will do But You ll get the best results when you use a specific pen and book only for Likhita Find a pen that writes and feels beautiful to you And look for a book that has smooth paper which makes writing more pleasurable If you want to colour with Likhita I recommend Staedtler Triplus Fineliner coloured pens 0 3 mm They have a very fine point and steady thickness perfect for Likhita and the colours are beautiful There is a Ten Color Set with all the basic colours and if you really want to enjoy drawing you can treat yourself to the coveted 20 Color Set I ve tried lots of other pens felts and pencils and Staedtler is by far the best for doing Likhita Japa You can use line drawings of deities to colour in Some are available in the Mandala Coloring Book To make mandalas with Likhita Japa I recommend using the Personal Mandala Starter Kit and the Spiritual Mandala Templates Kit this is free when with the Mandala Starter Kit These kits have the templates ready to go and will help you create beautiful symmetrical mandalas with or without Likhita I couldn t have done the Likhita Mandala above with these tools Likhita Japa Method As with any meditation practice there are some keys Posture Keep your spine aligned and all your body parts in place Relaxation Keep your muscles relaxed Watch in particular your face

  • Spiritual Reflection Method * Wicca-Spirituality.com
    up to them The key to this reflection method is gentleness with yourself It s crucial to remember that values and ideals might never be fully achieved They re the ideal after all The important thing is not succeeding or failing to live up to them It s to recognise where you have and haven t let them lead your way And to plan in advance how you can more closely align with them the next time It s a nice perk that when you give yourself credit for how well you re doing you do even better So take the opportunity to congratulate yourself on your progress however small it may seem The Gift Of This Practice Eventually it is second nature to let your values and ideals guide your every word and action and even your thoughts It s astonishing how this one shift in perspective can turn your whole life around Reframing Reflection Method Reframing means stepping outside of your automatic explanation of things and putting it in a more realistic or more positive perspective We all have mechanical responses to things things we tell ourselves about what happens When he looks at me that way it means he hates me I know she did that on purpose to hurt me she knows how I feel when people are late These stories that we tell ourselves are so habitual and usually subconscious that we don t feel there s any other possible interpretation What else can it mean when she looks at me like that She thinks I m brainless that s the only explanation While our interpretation may or may not be correct it is absolutely certain that there is another version that is equally possible and usually more so For instance how a person reacts to you is not really about you It says much more about them their thoughts their current emotional state their fears etc With the Reframing reflection method you deliberately step back from a knee jerk reaction and take another look at what might be happening The Gift Of This Practice An immediate relief from unpleasant emotions an ability to respond more calmly and effectively and increased optimism about life and your ability to deal with it Waking Dream Interpretation Life is a waking dream If you ve ever interpreted a dream you know that the images and events in a dream are symbolic of things of concern to you Everything that happens in your daily life is just as much a symbol You can interpret everyday events just as if they were dreams The benefits You gain a deep insight into the real meaning and causes of what s happening to you You gain a invaluable perspective on Truth this life is a dream and a game and an initiation The Gift Of This Practice Over time this perspective becomes your ordinary viewpoint When that happens nothing that life throws you can throw you off balance So life stops trying
