Dealing with frustration
« on: September 13, 2019, 03:10:13 PM »
Does anyone have suggestions on dealing with impatience/frustration? I listen to the testimonials of people healing and having mystical experiences and I get frustrated and jealous actually that I have not had any type of comparable experiences in my meditations. Any advice?

Oh yes. I was one of those people too. In the beginning I was too, jealous at every testimonials.
Because I didn't "get it".

But then I saw that sample meditation on youtube:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9h4GiblYrPk&t=902s


In the beginning, I didn't get it at all. But after keep listening and listening several times. I think for me it only takes several days, to finally "get it".

On minute 14, When he said "it's time to be....."

I thought in my heart, oh yea? what? to be yourself?

But then he said....."... nobody".

Whooaaa, at that time I felt it's so liberating. Like a vacation of being myself. I felt a big burden has been lifted off me.

But then, it takes a while to "get it" the whole thing.
Books are okay to read. Seminar are okay.

But to me the most important thing is the meditation. Without the meditation, you won't get results.

I saw most people on youtube, they watch all the online seminars without results. That's because they don't do the meditation.

My first experiences with mystical experiences happened when I was in very Christian phase of my life, filled with belief and trust and asking to have the gift of prophecy. I started dream journaling, in time I had some very vivid revelatory ones. I didn’t do a whole lot of prayer, and no meditation. One day I began to have waking visions pertaining to myself and my life, which were thrilling and helpful, then I started seeing things about other people’s lives  which I botched terribly because 1) no one believes you, and 2) I had no one to to teach me what to do with the knowledge I was being given, so in the end I prayed for it to be taken away and it was.

Now that I have matured and have this community and the internet to find guidance I am open to the mystic once more. I don’t seek any theatrical braingasm thrashing about stuff, I want to be a servant to humanity.

So from my experience the way is you fill yourself with love for the world and everything in it, which means love for yourself as well. Non judgement of yourself and others also should be mastered. Live in an elevated emotion as much as you possibly can throughout the day, not only in meditation. Journal your dreams, a brief sentence or two to sum up the theme, then interpret every person in it as an aspect of yourself, find the message the universe is showing you then apply the lesson.

What this does is show the universe you are a serious seeker. Just like you have sat with a friend for hours then they don’t take your advice, and you are not going to waste your breath in that friend ever again, the universe sends you more information when you act on it. When it can trust you to actually do something constructive with these gifts,  that is when they will show up.

The surest way to shut down the mystical is making it all about you: where’s MY pineal gland revelation?

You can apply this to your healing as well: in what ways will you help others once you are healed? What lesson are you meant to learn from the afflictions you want to be freed rom?

Lately in meditation I focused on the chronic pain I had in my foot and realized it all came from obliging others doing hard work I did not want to do, I was pestered into it, had been living up to unreasonable expectations all of my life, thinking unkindly of others of who enjoyed comfort and ease because I had been trained to deny them for myself. I have been trying to rid myself of this discomfort through meditation for three years now, perhaps this finally is the key, perhaps I will be show many more reasons before it is healed. It is up to me to seek those answers.

I know you will get results with trust and diligence, keep going!

Wow! What a boat-load of fantastic replies here! I wish that the forum's functionality included "likes" or a way to save them as a favorite, because there is a great deal of wisdom here.

Thank you WiB and MissK!

And, in my experience Vicki, every word of that has rung true 🎁

Lately I experienced some situations that could be labeled as setbacks, bad luck, discouragement.... but I KNOW
it is nothing if the sort. The universe is bringing the changes that need to happen in order for my manifestation to come about. I have not wasted one second of my precious energy doubting or fretting.

And meanwhile do to the “setback” it has brought about smaller things I’ve been seeing in meditation:  getting my husband to get more rest and change his eating habits; Having time now to devote to my home...

I have always advocated “Ask for everything all at once. The sky is the limit.” Some things take a long time to show up, others are quick. The fact that you have set your intention means it is on its way. Squelch the negative and they will show up quicker.

Thank you guys for your replies! Yes, "setbacks" have been really challenging for me. But I have to remember that even seemingly large bumps in the road do not mean I'm on the wrong path. That's a tough one. My logical mind tells me if I'm doing the work, I should be seeing consistent improvement. But perhaps I need to keep a better lookout for the smaller positives in my life and health.
