I think many who have meditated for some time recognize themselves in Rudolf Steiner’s description. It is liberating to know that you are more than a human being. At least more than a human being as defined in the dictionary. The knowing this gives expels fear, insecurity and many other emotions that can slow you down in finding your path in life. You know your truth. You know it’s the way you stand in life that determines where your path is going.
This is one of the key principles that underlie persistent healing. Treating symptoms does not remove the cause that caused the symptoms to appear. Sometimes one has to go deeper to get to the core and work with, anxiety, emotional pain and more to achieve lasting change. Transformational Meditation can be an aid to go deeper and work with yourself in a different way.
Each time you say, “I am ….” you create and strengthen your identity. Have you experienced a trauma that caused you to become more anxious and are you telling yourself and others that you are an anxious person, then this becomes your anxious personality and your identity. And every time you tell yourself you are an anxious person, you reinforce your identity
You know deep inside you that you do not want to be an anxious person and you want to get rid of the unpleasant emotions and experiences that come with it. This means that you must change one or more personality traits and thus your identity and this is scary in itself. Because what’s happening to you when you’re not the person everyone around you identifies you with? Transformational Meditation is a tool that is highly effective in creating such changes in a liberating manner.
A big part of my life I stood up every Monday morning reluctant to go to school and reluctant to go to work. Again a week full of challenges and too many chores. As a thank you, I always received a good portion of challenges from the universe and plenty of things to do.
It was Dr Wayne Dyer who made me try something else. Now I get up every morning and the first thing I do is say thank you for a new day with many new opportunities and I open up for the positive a day can give me. I have to be honest, this is not always easy. But one thing I know now for sure. What you say thanks for in the morning comes to you during the day. So try to thank for all the good the day is going to give you tomorrow when you get up. Let me know in the comments how it went.
In the same way as other forms of meditation, a body scan can be used to practice attention. A bodyscan changes between a wide and narrow focus of attention; from focusing on your little toe to the whole body.You can start the exercise by lying on the floor, or bed.
Start by focusing your attention on top of your head and then moving down the body, or the other way around. It’s good idea to start with a guided practice like this one to get a sense of how to move your attention up or down the body.

When I started meditating over 20 years ago it was because I wanted to cope with life in a better way. The opposite happened. I was confronted with myself in a way that made me confused, angry and depressed. I was an idiot, a zero a slave and a zombie with only resistance on his way. There was no one who wanted me good because everyone including myself survived on their ego. I stopped meditating. Meditation did not work for me, just like with everybody else who had tried.
It was not until I moved to another country and continued to experience the same experiences, that I started meditating again and this time with the help of a spiritual guide. With her smiling on the sidelines, I went further and deeper than I had ever done with meditation. I went through the dark night of the soul. Now I’m working as a transformational guide. Guiding people through their river of change.
