9. Get to Know the Sun in Your Body

Blocking the internal sun is the cause of every ill to the human race: physical, mental, and environmental.

The Solar Plexus

A plexus is an intricate network of nerves. The one behind your stomach is called “solar” because of the many nerves that radiate out from it. And, like the sun, this Solar Plexus is a central distribution point from which the energy of your body is constantly generating. This energy is real, and like the sun in the sky, it is incredibly powerful and crucial to your life.

The energy that radiates from your Solar Plexus is thrown off in the atmosphere that envelopes your body. When this radiation is strong, a person seems “magnetic.” Others are attracted to them, it feels good to be around them. Their presence alone will often soothe troubled minds.

The Cause of Every Ill

When the Solar Plexus radiation becomes blocked for any reason — such as worry, guilt, and fear — the life energy from the Divine Force is diminished or blocked. This is the cause of every ill to the human race: physical, mental, and environmental.

Physical, because your internal sun is no longer generating enough energy to vitalize the body. Mental, because because your two minds rely on the Sympathetic Nervous System to function smoothly. Environmental because the connection of your subconscious mind with the Sacred Power of the Universal Mind mind is interrupted.

Life is expressive and it is our privilege to express ourselves harmoniously and constructively. Sorry, misery, unhappiness, disease, and poverty are effects. You are the only one who can identify and eliminate their causes. Rise above and beyond all limitations of any kind by paying careful attention to what you are thinking. What is going in and and what is coming out of your mind?  Will yourself to consciously replace negative thoughts that oppress you with ideas that bring freedom and harmony.

The Second Meditation

Sit still, close your eyes, and relax your entire body. Is your solar plexus relaxed or does it feel “nervous?” Relax your conscious mind by inhibiting thought and lingering in the present moment. You will still get messages from your senses and make conclusions about them, because that is part of your automatic survival mechanism. You are safe in this moment. Just relax into the present and rest your mind. Next, visualize your solar plexus as a bright sun that radiates healing warmth and comfort.

When you notice that your mind has wandered, make a mental sweep of your body, relaxing any tense areas that have developed. End the meditation by clearing your mind of daydreams, plans, reasoning. Simply rest in the silence.

6. Small Miracles

Success in life hinges on your ability to control your thinking so it works for you not against you. Start by practicing stillness.

Whatever your present circumstances, you will start to experience small miracles as you do the Master Key meditations.

An important part of the Master Key wisdom is to show kindness and helpfulness to those around you. This goes hand in hand with time you spend in your meditations.

You will start to see small miracles right away. They may come as people reaching out to you with invitations and opportunities, and your interactions becoming more harmonious. New ideas and insights will bubble to the surface.

The Universal Intelligence is “on your side.” These small miracles come when you are on the path to a higher, harmonious consciousness.

You will find out that the way to get on this path is by resting your body, mind, ego, and self, rather than battling the array of circumstances that confront you on the physical plane.

The Second Meditation

Be comfortable and still for at least 15 minutes each day. Sometimes it takes more than 15 minutes to quiet your unruly mind, so it is best to chose a time of day when you don’t feel rushed because of other obligations. Do your meditation at a time when you can sit and wait until your racing brain finally catches up to your intention to sit quietly in the present stillness and invite the Abundant Universe to reveal itself to you.

Be motionless and release the tension in every muscle. The breathe may be deep or shallow, or both — whatever helps you relax. Then gain control of your wandering thoughts by focusing on the “screen” in front of your closed eyes.

When you are thus seated and trying to clear your mind, remember you are following the example of two great spiritual leaders. Buddha sat silently under the Bhodi tree until enlightenment came upon him. And Jesus said he was not asking people to do anything difficult, but to simply “Enter into my rest.” Be thankful for this wisdom passed down to you about the path to enlightenment. Allow yourself to rest.
