How do we go about it?

 How does one go deeper in meditation?

  1. Desire is a most powerful force and when our desire for spiritual growth is willed up, a potent movement of spiritual growth and a great increase in the depth in which we live starts to happen. Our personal connection to God / source can increase considerably through a prayerful asking for an increase in spiritual desire. This asking will pull all the help necessary for one’s advancement. Thus desire can be like a prayer.
  2. Trust what comes up when you increase your focus and desire to go deeper. Allow your meditations to unfold, through your trusting what is happening for you in meditation, and not to stop it from happening.
  3. Often in order to go deeper there is some way of letting go that needs to happen. A letting go of a belief or a concept that is in the way for us to move deeper.
  4. Often we need to feel some feeling or emotion deeply and find a way to go underneath the feeling by letting go.
  5. An opening most likely has to occur in some way to be able to go deeper. If nothing seems to be happening from your increase prayer then you can try this most powerful tool: during meditation, scream into towel – not catharting, but a soulful scream from your belly. This can dislodge something and create newfound momentum in your meditations. Try it for yourself and see what happens for you.

and always remembering:

the only solution to any problem is to go deeper
