How to place yourself in the Presence of God.
Actively realise that the Presence of God is all around you. Outside look at the whole picture before you. The trees, grass, clouds. Know that God permeates them all. He is everywhere at once. He is there, through His Love and knowledge of all His created things. Before you begin your meditation “see” this same Holy Presence in the room all around you.
God’s presence is more that just Being. His presence is the essence that keeps all things in reality. It is not that the world swirls around inside of God. No, God has command of it all. God oversees it, All things belong to Him. He created all. You belong to Him. The Supreme Being knows and Loves you intimately.
Present in His attributes
All God’s attributes are present in His presence. He has wisdom of every minuscule atom of every living thing in the world. God is present in His “Providence” in that He provides for all. This providence isn’t something God does. He IS, providence.
God is nearer to us than the air we breathe andHe was ‘waiting’ there before we took our first breath. Gently, effortlessly watch all this. Focus on it. Enjoy it. Enjoy God’s Holy Presence.
Present in our hearts
Focusing on God Present in your heart is easy. If you concentrate on your breathing and imagine, you can actually see the air going down inside you. Instead of looking outward, centre your attention within your body in the region of your heart realising it is His Presence in your heart that keeps it beating. His Presence there keeps you alive in this world and translates into the spiritual realm when you leave through “death” in like manner, David calls Him the “strength of my heart”
Watching From Heaven
Raising your eyes upward and “seeing” Jesus enthroned above in heaven watching down on you is another way of being aware of His Presence or Use a picture or image of Jesus to concentrate on His Presence.
The Presence of Jesus as a Friend
Every time during the day when you discover you are ‘talking’ in your imagination to a friend, replace the image of your friend with that of Jesus. Tell it to Him instead.
Try each of the above three ways of attaining the Presence of God one at a time to see which is most advantageous to you.
