I have recently discovered meditation and have been meditating for twenty minutes daily for the past two months. I have already experienced some wonderful benefits, for example an increase in my confidence and realizing that I was going to do something wrong before I did it.
I have tried very hard to reach the deep meditative stage where I can directly connect with God and get answers to my questions. At the moment I am going through a lot of changes in terms of my career, and I am really worried about making wrong decisions. I feel that no matter how hard I try to connect to God to get help with these decisions, He is just not there.
What is the process for connecting to God? I am worried that I have selected the wrong career and want God’s opinion before it is too late.

I am a medium but I am not getting an answer for my own problems.
Last year I left three jobs. I was in the first one for two years, but felt that I had overstayed my welcome. I got another job working for a person who made promises but never kept them, and then did not pay me for a month.
I found another job where I earned good money, but the managers in the company felt that it was OK to regularly humiliate people and make them cry. I could not work in a situation like that.
I am worried that I will not find another job. I have never been unemployed before.
I have also recently bought a house with my boyfriend of 8 years, and we are very happy in our relationship. But then I dreamt that a man I went out with 20 years ago wants me back and we were surrounded by a beautiful light. Does that mean anything?
After my recent DNA activation to 144 strands my insides feel like someone keeps hitting them with a tuning fork.
What can I do to feel better again?
I have read and learned so much on my spiritual journey and it really has changed me for the better. My problem is that I can now see how other people struggle and I want to help them get out of their comfort zone and have the same breakthroughs I had.
At the moment all I can do is share my intellectual knowledge with people but that seems to confuse more than to helps them. As a result, people move away from me when I only want to help them.
How do I become a real teacher without putting people off?
There is an urgency in the Western world to find means of slowing down and becoming calmer and more peaceful.
One of the commercial successes (apart from the myriad books on mindfulness) is the new rage for colouring books for adults.
Of course you will not find fairies or clowns or animals in these colouring books. The purpose of the books is not to practice holding a crayon or staying within the lines. The purpose of the books is to help adults relax by focusing on repeating patterns and on no particular topic.
Quite often mandalas are used in these adult colouring book. Mandalas are complicated repetitive patterns that originated in Eastern philosophy as an attempt to make a symbolic representation of the Universe more tangible.
