Key Points From This Eckhart Tolle Guided Meditation

  • The only really important thing in your life is the present moment, because there is nothing else, ever.
  • Becoming conscious of the present moment allows for a heightened alertness and awareness of sensory perceptions, breaking free from the continuous stream of thinking.
  • Most people’s thinking is repetitive, useless, and often negative, creating a dream-like state where they are not truly present.
  • The term “awakening” in spirituality refers to the alertness that arises when you become conscious of the present moment.
  • The noise of thinking can subside, and we can realize that there is nothing missing in the present moment, allowing us to be fully present and alive.
  • The meditative state can be simply referred to as presence, a state of heightened alertness, not to be confused with relaxation leading to sleep.
  • “Let’s forget about reaching a meditative state and just be with this moment as it is and accept that this moment is as it is.”
  • Apart from your sense perceptions, there is a sense of aliveness in your inner energy field.

Guided Meditation Instructions

Step 1: Prepare Your Space

Turn off your phone ringer. Find a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed. Sit comfortably, either on a chair or on the floor with a cushion. Ensure your back is straight but not tense. Rest your hands on your lap or knees. Close your eyes gently.

Step 2: Settle into the Present Moment

Sit quietly and focus on now. Take a few deep breaths. Inhale slowly through your nose, filling your lungs completely. Exhale through your mouth, letting go of any tension. Repeat this a few times until you feel settled. Acknowledge that the present moment is the only reality. Everything else is either a memory or a projection.

Step 3: Become Aware of Your Senses

Notice your surroundings. Bring your attention to your senses. What do you hear? The hum of a fan, birds chirping outside, distant traffic? What do you see with your eyes closed? Light filtering through your eyelids, darkness, or shapes? What do you feel? The texture of your clothes, the contact of your body with the chair or floor, the temperature of the air on your skin. Let an alertness arise, becoming more aware of these sensations.

Step 4: Observe Your Thoughts

Watch your mind. Notice the continuous stream of thoughts passing through your mind. Don’t try to stop them. Just observe. You might notice worries about the future, memories of the past, or random thoughts. Understand that most of these thoughts are repetitive and often negative. They are like clouds passing in the sky. You are the sky, not the clouds.

Step 5: Experience Pure Awareness

Shift to pure presence. Sometimes, a sudden noise or movement can bring you into pure presence. When this happens, give it your full attention. For those few seconds, observe without immediate judgment. Just experience the moment as it is. This is pure awareness, free from the clutter of thoughts.

Step 6: Recognize Natural Moments of Meditation

Acknowledge brief moments of presence. Realize that you already meditate for brief periods throughout your day. These moments of full alertness and presence often happen naturally. It could be when you notice a beautiful flower, hear a child’s laughter, or feel the warmth of the sun on your skin. Recognize and cherish these moments.

Step 7: Align with the Present Moment

Embrace the now. Let go of any need for the moment to be different. Accept it as it is. If your mind tells you that something is missing or not good enough, gently remind yourself that this moment is complete. Relax into it. Feel comfortable with what is happening right now, without wishing for it to change.

Step 8: Feel the Aliveness Within

Sense your inner energy. Direct your attention inward. Notice the subtle feeling of aliveness in your body. Start with your hands and feet. Feel the energy or tingling sensation there. Then move your attention to your arms, legs, chest, and finally your entire body. This sense of aliveness is always present, but often unnoticed.

Step 9: Practice Regularly

Make this a habit. Set aside time each day for this meditation. It can be as short as five minutes or as long as you feel comfortable. The more you practice, the more you will experience the benefits. Regular meditation will transform each day, making you more present, calm, and aware. Ultimately, this practice will improve your life, bringing a deeper sense of peace and fulfillment.

Doing this regularly will transform each day and ultimately make your life much better.
