Spiritual Meditations Women Must Try!

Hey there beauty! Welcome!

I’m Martita and I’ll be showing you some amazing spiritual meditations women must try! As a woman myself, I know just how vital it is for women to meditate in order to step into their power.

We are emotional beings and being able to anchor ourselves rather than flop around with the feelings of chaos (anxiety, depression, anger, stress) is important in accomplishing our dreams. Dreams take focus–and emotions tend to take us away from that focus. Not only this, but focus is necessary in order to heal from these emotional imbalances as well! If you suffer from anxiety or depression–learning to anchor yourself (focus on peace) is how you’re going to heal. I know! I suffered for years before I overcame them myself using spiritual meditation.

I’ve developed a list of must try meditations for you. Meditations that have worked for me in my own journey. If you have any questions about them don’t hesitate to leave a comment or send me a message at hello@martitarobinson.com.

Spiritual Meditations Women Must Try: Chakra Meditation

Chakra meditation is one of my favorite types of meditations. My spiritual awakening came about because of my chakra work, and I highly recommend you to practice chakra meditation regularly for spiritual growth.

If you know nothing about your chakras, let me give you a quick rundown (find a deeper explanation here).

  1. Your chakras are your energy centers. They are the center of your spirituality–they are what connects you to the divine.
  2. There are 7 major chakras within your body. Each one has its own purpose.
  3. Just like everything else in your life, they require maintenance to keep them running smoothly.
  4. When they are open and flowing, your life is happy and fulfilled. When they are closed–you feel disconnected from who you are–your spirit, and connected instead to your suffering.
  5. Chakra meditation allows for flow to occur.

I began chakra meditation using a simple process. I sat and focused on my chakra points daily. This allowed for clearing to occur.

Intention opens and clears your chakras. It doesn’t take a lot of time. You simply have to sit and go through each chakra with the intention of allowing Flow.

Benefits to Chakra Meditation

  • Deeper spirituality: You will begin to feel more connected to God, and the universe.
  • Deeper Intuition: You will begin to hear and sense your intuition at a deeper level.
  • Spiritual visions
  • Happier, fulfilled life.
  • Emotional Healing: You will begin to heal your past with every meditation.

Spiritual Meditations Women Must Try: “I AM” Meditation

I AM. A simple sentence that when said anchors you within the moment you say it.

I began using this technique to discover my spirit at the beginning of my meditation practice. It is simple, yet creates a profound connection to your power. Your spirit. Universe. All knowing. Everything that is good is connected to by making this statement. I AM.

Stating, “I AM” is signing a permission slip for the divine to take over your life. And its not just opening yourself up to the divine–its a merging of you–body, mind, and spirit. You become whole by making that statement.

When you say the words, “I AM”, you tear down walls that you divide you from your abilities to create magic. Magic in healing, magic in success, magic in love. Magic in life.

Practicing the I AM meditation consistently within your life produces several changes.

  • You begin to feel and become more powerful.
  • You begin to access answers to questions in your life.
  • You stand taller and stronger in the woman that you are.
  • You take action removing doubt and excuses from your life.
  • Your present changes and transforms into what you’ve been working on for years in the past.

Your practice can be simple. It can be sitting for five minutes and repeating I AM, over and over. Or it can be focusing on your chakras, and in between stating, “I AM.” You can repeat it several times a day–using it as a mantra. If you prefer a guided meditation, here’s a great one.

Whichever way(s) feels right, is your path. Take it, and practice!

Spiritual Meditations Women Must Try: OM meditation.

OM. Another mantra meditation. (If you’re unfamiliar with what mantras are, they are simply words that you repeat over and over again that become a part of you.)

OM is said to be the universal sound of God. It means everything, and it means nothing.

According to Wikipedia, “Om is one of the most important spiritual symbols.” It is sacred and when chanted tunes you in to the vibrational frequency of all that is.

Whenever I chant “OM” I feel presence instantly. Presence meaning, stillness, or sacred Self. God within me.

OM was a foundation in my meditation practice because chanting OM helped me to stay actively focused, within the meditation. In the beginning I meditated to support anxiety healing, and if you’ve had anxiety you understand how distracting thoughts and feelings can be when you sit to meditate. Chanting is a great way to refocus.

Here is a great instructional video on how to sound and practice OM meditation.

If this sounds like a practice for you, practice daily–or in those moments you feel that you’re unable to focus on your regular meditation practice.

You can practice for as little as five minutes, or go as long as 25. It’s up to you.

You can do a search on YouTube and find someones video that feels good listening and practicing with–alternatively, here’s one I’ve used in the past.

Conclusion

I hope these have helped. These three were, and still are, a consistent part of my meditation practice. I like to switch things up and go through different meditations regularly (Gemini here), so its common for me to practice all three of these in a week. Try these and see what fits for you. I recommend using your favorite every day for two weeks, then trying another. This way you build a foundation for it, and get the most benefit out of regular practice!

Spiritual Meditation vs Regular Meditation

Spiritual Meditation vs Regular Meditation

spiritual meditation

Hi there! My name is Martita and I began my meditation journey using spiritual meditation. Meditation had always appealed to me in some way or another, but I was never pulled to actually practice until I was taught the spiritual side of it all. (The spiritual side of meditation is where it’s at!) Meditation has so many benefits, but for me, the biggest benefits come from discovering the spiritual side of yourself. Life changes exponentially when one starts to delve into the spiritual side of who they are. I’ll go deeper into the differences of both below. If there’s anything missing or if you have any questions, please leave a comment or reach out to me at hello@martitarobinson.com. Thank you!

Spiritual Meditation vs Regular Meditation

After teaching both types of meditation (and practicing) for the last 12 years, I’ve learned that they really aren’t that different. You sit, you concentrate on something, and you move on. That’s meditation, both spiritual and regular. The differences lie in your perception of what’s happening.

Let me explain.

Regular meditation is about acceptance. Accepting your thoughts, your feelings–your moment. You take the time out of your life to sit and pull away from the world in order to learn how to be OK with the feelings of chaos, and to break the incessant cycle of thoughts rolling around in your head. It is especially useful for those suffering from anxiety, depression and stress.

Spiritual meditation is about discovering your Sacred Self. It is learning about who you are. When you sit to focus on releasing the same things you are releasing with regular meditation, but with the intention of discovering your sacredness, you begin to discover a world full of wonder, magic and miracles. You begin to transform.

Spiritual Meditation Connects You To God


God is everywhere–including within you. When you begin to practice spiritual meditation, you begin to discover that you are a spiritual being living here within a human body. You begin to discover that you are a piece of all that God is and you discover that experientially.

What is God? Love, appreciation, peace and everything else that is good in the world. Practicing this type of meditation nurtures those attributes–it nurtures your spirit. It nurtures you.

Regular meditation may eventually lead the practitioner to these same attributes, but if one doesn’t know they are love, they are peace, they are all that is good–they will not push to allow that. They may get to a more peaceful place, but that’s where it ends. There won’t be a push to be better. To be greater. To transform.

Spiritual meditation connects you to the divine. The more you connect to the divine, the more you allow yourself to be that. Can you imagine a life where peace is consistent? Love? Gratitude? These are the results of spiritual meditation.



Spiritual Meditation Empowers You

I’m going to be real here–both regular meditation and spiritual meditation are empowering. The benefits to practicing acceptance and letting go are great for the practitioner. No longer do you need to connect to pain (anxiety, depression, stress). You recognize that you have a choice. Once consistent practice is established you discover your ability to focus instead on calm, and steady peace. This is life changing within its self.

The advanced benefits of spiritual meditation within empowerment are that you recognize your ability to create change in your life. You begin to notice that you are in charge of your world. You are in charge of how you view it, and how you want to it be.

The life you want is created as you step into your divinity.

One of the most important things that I work on building a foundation for within my (five) children’s lives is the idea that they are powerful. They create their lives as they want it to be. If they believe something won’t work out, it won’t. If they believe it will, it will.

As you begin to practice spiritual meditation you begin to own your life. You stop blaming others for your failures, and begin instead to turn to yourself. You learn that it is up to you to create change, irrelevant of how the world around you wants it to be. You own your life, and in this shift of perception your life begins to change into the vision of what you want it to be.

Spiritual Meditation Opens Up Your World To The Spiritual

When I began meditating back around 2004–I used a simple relaxation meditation to connect to spirit. After feeling and sensing who I was (my spirit) I moved on to different meditations. Meditations that anchored me in the now, and allowed me to tap into the heavens–including all the support available to me.

When one begins spiritual meditation, they allow space for guidance–divine guidance. This divine guidance comes from several sources:

  • Intuition
  • Angel Guides
  • Spirit Guides
  • Divine Vision (and more)

Tapping into the spiritual side of you is all about being open to it. Allowing it. This is done through spiritual meditation and often not welcomed with regular meditation.

Why?

Regular meditation can open the space just as spiritual meditation can, but practitioners of regular meditation are often seeking something different. They may not be open to this type of guidance. It really is up to the practitioner to choose the purpose of relaxing, as perception makes all the difference.

Your goals of your practice are important. Are you relaxing to allow peace into your life, or are you relaxing for peace and spiritual fulfillment? If you seek something greater than what you can physically see, then spiritual meditation will be of great benefit to you.
