Come Unto Me...
All of us suffer from past hurts and pains. When we come to Christ, we literally become new creatures but we still bring along our baggage from the past. We continue to struggle and suffer in certain areas of our life and have no idea why. This is usually the result of some unresolved fear, hurt, or pain from our past. Many of these stem from childhood traumas, mindsets, or crisis we have had to endure as adults.
Oftentimes these wounds are unconscious to us, just lurking beneath the surface of our waking mind. We also have a tendency to deny, hide, or bury the thoughts or feelings associated with these hurts and pains instead of seeking healing, freedom, and deliverance from them. Father God doesn’t want us to cope with our pain, He wants to deliver us from it and in return we can help others.
Christian meditation is like the doorway to the soul. As we become quiet before the Lord, thoughts and feelings of the past begin to creep up to the surface. We often come face to face with our pain, but that is a good thing, because what we can feel we can heal. Once we recognize and acknowledge our pain, we can then turn it over to God and receive healing.
Through the art of Christian Meditation, we surrender our whole being unto God by entering into his presence and bringing our mind and body under subjection to Christ. Through quieting the mind, meditating on God’s Word, and abiding in His Presence, we consecrate ourselves unto God and away from the world, it’s distractions and worldly attachments and affections. Each time we enter into God’s Secret Place, we allow his transforming presence to change us inwardly where we discover the deeper things of God, a world within a world, that many never dig deep enough to find.
Meditation is the act of meditating; continued or extended thought; reflection; contemplation; or devout religious contemplation or spiritual introspection. Therefore, the practice of Christian meditation would be to engage in thought, contemplation, and reflection about our relationship with Christ and/or the Word of God.

Transform Your Life by Finding Inner Healing
and Transform Your Relationship with God
“Did you know that most of our mindsets and perspectives on life are en-grained by the time we are 6-years-old? It’s true. While in our formative years we are like little sponges, we take in EVERYTHING. Unlike adults, we don’t have filters or boundaries that protect us from situations or people that can hurt us mentally or emotionally. As we grow older, because we were not able to release these fears, pains, or phobias, we learn coping mechanisms. These pains never really went away, we just learned great ways to bury them or hide them away. However, all we need is the right trigger and those fears and toxic emotions come flooding back with a vengeance.
I’m sure you know people who just seem angry all the time. In fact, one of my fourth grade students is like that. She is ALWAYS angry and getting in confrontations about something. Do you think that behavior is going to go away when she is an adult? No, not unless she learns how to release it in a healthy way that doesn’t hurt others. Learning how to release inner pains is imperative to our spiritual growth and personal development. We really can’t grow beyond our unconscious feelings about life, ourselves, and others when we are wounded. We are not free to explore, take risks, and be vulnerable. Instead people with inner pains tend to protect themselves at all costs. They won’t let others (even God) really in, but in the end they are hurting themselves and can end up lonely and full of despair.

Start Meditating & Cleanse Your Heart
During Christian meditation, as we become still before the Lord, these pains or memories may begin to surface. That can be really scary. Sometimes when that happens you might feel like you’re going to die or have a panic attack. This is one of the main reasons people don’t like dealing with their “stuff,” so they stay distracted instead. Those who experienced severe trauma often try to dull out their pain with food, drugs, or other destructive behaviors. They don’t want to feel. But what you can “feel” you can “heal.” Therefore, feeling the pain and seeing that you won’t die is a good thing.
