This is the 07:30 AM Spiritual Church Services at Spirit360 Fellowship, from January 23, 2022 when we look at Making 2022 Your Best Year Ever – Evaluating Your Progress.
TS Hall, @theStoicMedium, shares why we are returning to connection and intimacy during our Spirit360 Fellowship Sunday Services.
Welcome to the Spirit360 Fellowship – 00:00:00
Welcome to Spirit360 Fellowship I’m TS Hall @theStoicMedium, and I’ll be leading your service today. Spirit360 Fellowship is an online community of like-minds and kindred spirits. We practice spiritualism, but not your grandma’s a spiritualism.
We are an independent Spiritual Church that does what we find works and shows you how to use those techniques. So you can find spiritual solutions to life’s problems.
Opening Message from Spirit – 00:02:08
We open each Spiritual Church Service at Spirit360 Fellowship with a message from one of my spirit guides and teachers. I asked them to take a look at who all is with us, live on this service and share something for our group as a collective to help us set the tone and the intention and the context for our time together today.
So let’s see who would like to share.
So Nathan steps forward. He’s on my left. He works with me in areas of healing and as a general companion guide.
This is a form of very light trance, we call inspirational speaking and we teach it to our students in our advanced classes.
Have a look around you right now in your space, in the place you are, while you connect on this, a unique way of gathering.
What do you see?
What do you not see?
What do you see but wish was not there?
What do you see that you wish you had gotten rid of yesterday?
What do you not see that you wish was there?
These simple questions and exercises are the key to allowing yourself to use this lifetime and a three-dimensional experience to create and cause what you want to bring it mapped.
There is very little in this world that is absolutely necessary or essential, however, within your awareness, you will find what is essential to you.
This spiritual growth, this spiritual expansion of your awareness, allows you to bring to the foreground those things you find essential for you in this lifetime.
Allowing yourself to listen to how your mind reacts as you interact with the world around you, you will start to know the way for the required work during your spiritual growth and development practices this lifetime.
For indeed, nothing within you is a surprise unless you choose to ignore it before it happens.
My highest blessings.
A message from my Spirit Guide, Nathan
Uh, so just as I was in the middle of this and he was talking about change and I started to see, uh, some of the things that were going on, I hear, yeah, you’re starting to get up in the background. So as I’m waiting for it, and I was waiting for his cold nose to hit my leg, uh, say, hi, I’m here.
Pay attention to me. It’s all about me. All right. So that was a, that was Nathan.

Best Year Ever part 4 – 00:26:30
Ask Me Anything: Q&A – 00:44:35
How will I know that I am reaching stillness during my meditation?
Gypsy’s Full Comments:
“Hey, um, so this is going to sound crazy. Ah, I haven’t been able to get totally silent in the meditations and I do other kinds of meditations. They’re all sound meditation. So, and I’ve followed you, I dunno, since maybe sometime in the fall besides January. Wasn’t great. But, um, my question is, I’m not exactly sure what I’m reaching for because my mind is like very ADHD and I’ve been able to slow it down for certain, especially with music and things like that.
Is there when I get into silence, still things going to be going on in my mind, or is there a place I’m going to reach as I continue to practice that I know I’m in silence and I know what it is because I feel like maybe I’m not understanding what that experience will look like.“
Terry’s Reply: No, you understand that absolutely perfectly.
Here is why we practice a 10-minute meditation instead of a two-hour meditation practice.
FIRST: We drop from many thoughts to one thought or thought-form. We hold an image, struggling to keep that image there.
Instead of all this other stuff like music, breathing, and counting, we practice focused concentration.
After 5-minutes, we let go of one thought and go to no thoughts.
On a scale of one to 10, 10 being totally conscious, aware, doing what you’re doing now and zero being complete silence, total stillness, absence of thought.
During our concentration and focus, we only have one thought we’ll get down to a five or six on our scale of 10. So with all of our attention focused on this one thought-form, we keep it there when it wants to go somewhere else.
Other thoughts come in, but our focus remains on that one thought. Our level of stillness remains at a five or six out of ten. We’re pretty much quiet with calm emotions. We’re pretty much here now, and there’s very little activity. We’re strictly focused.
After five minutes, we let go of that single thought and drop toward silence hovering between two or three on our scale of ten.
We hover in this quiet, receptive space. Then as thoughts float by, we don’t follow those thoughts. Meditation trains us to not follow our thinking down the bunny trail.
We’re floating between two or three on our scale of ten, then something is different. You realize that you’re back at two or three. In hindsight, you will realize that the moment before, you were not at a two or three. You were someplace else.
In a five-minute silence practice, if you touch stillness two, three, maybe four times in that five-minute practice.
Touching silence restores your vital energy and cleans the blackboard of our mind, allowing us to consciously pick and choose what enters our consciousness.
We learn to think about what we allow ourselves to think about, moment-by-moment.
We choose what enters our awareness and where to go next after entering our consciousness?
The intention is not to go down to stillness and be entirely still, at a zero for five minutes. Remember that professional meditators like Buddhist priests sit in meditation for several hours every day. Yet, even with all this practice, they rarely hold total stillness more than two or three minutes at a time.
Remember that if you’re looking for silence, you’re not there. So it’s one of those things that you’re kind of going along then, all of a sudden you drift down and you notice you were there when you come back up. And that’s the part I want you to realize that all just touching the silence, absolute silence several times during a five-minute practice is perfect.
Thank you for asking this question because it’s gold.
The reason it’s gold is that being able to stay at a level of two or three on our consciousness scale is what I call the “eye of the storm.”
Being able to dwell in that place between a two or a three (quiet receptivity and thinking tranquility), you’re in control of your mind with direct access to your knowing.
My bellwether to test if we’re in the eye of the storm are our playing cards.
The accuracy of our practice reflects how well we’re staying at a two or three by keeping our mind in this place of thinking tranquility and quietly receptive.
In this place, we see things as they are to do your journaling, to do your affirmations, to do your psychic development.
Understanding that your mind is actively engaged when you’re doing guided forms of meditation like listening to music, counting your breaths, or saying a mantra.
Realize that active meditations work on the physical body, getting you calm. Perfect for getting you ready to do the work of the stillness meditation we practice.
If your mind is actively engaged, it’s not silent. Two things can not occupy the same space. So you can’t have silence and being not silent at the same time/space.
Silence is binary. You’re silent, or you’re not.
The practice is to remain in a state closer to zero than a five or six for longer and longer periods.
