So how does one commune with Inner Self?
Prayer, Practicing the Presence, and Meditation are some of the ways.
Prayer is a very personal devotion for all of us. In my case, I’ll simply say it is a way of communicating directly with either the Duality or Non Duality of God/Spirit/Inner Self.
Practicing the Presence can be reading scriptures or chanting the names of God.
Meditation is simply the unfolding of the silence within. Going deeper and deeper within until I feel that peace. It doesn’t necessarily mean that thoughts still don’t come and go. They do. I am just able to get to a place where I’m not fighting or struggling with them. I have come to a place where I realize that it is just my part to experience them.
My meditations are usually assisted by listening to prayers or mantras by others, then silence. Sometimes I focus on the seven chakras (seven temples/churches of the astral body), and at each chakra I will chant a mantra, begin to feel that chakra pulsate, and then move on to the next. When all seven chakras have been aligned, I focus back on either the place between my eyes, or just behind the heart area and let the peace wash over me, letting any thoughts that come also was over me.
