Be Still, Find Peace and Know God
through Meditation

Or learn more below.

Welcome! 

I’m Jackie Trottmann. This is home to my blog and ezine called The Guided Life – Offering encouragement to live a life guided by God. (You can click the link above or sign up for The Guided Life below. It's free.)

I am also the author of the book God Notes – Daily Doses of Divine Encouragement through DreamSculpt Books, an imprint of Waterside Productions, audio book through End Hunger Records, and creator of three meditation CDs: Be Still, Let it Go, and Trust.

The Need Has Never Been Greater to Disconnect from Our Devices and Connect to Spirit

The Psalmist says, "Be still and know that I am God." Our culture says that what we do is never enough, and worse(!), that we are never enough.

Stressing and striving robs you of the abundant and joyful life that Jesus promises. Even our devices will stop working if they are not recharged! Feeding your mind with the horiffic images on the news will disturb your spirit. Fear of missing out if you're not constantly connected and available will steal your peace and cause you to be anxious.

This site and all its offerings were created to help you step away from life's fast lane and reconnect to spirit, God's Spirit within you. That means taking time to deepen the most important relationship you have - your relationship with God. God yearns for our love. In turn, we have yearnings that will never be met by a job, a love relationship, the next shopping purchase, or the latest and greatest thing marketing wants us to believe will bring us happiness. I believe that only God’s love can fill those yearnings.

Growing up in the Christian faith, meditation was never taught. Verbal prayer certainly was, but not meditation. I have discovered that:

Prayer is talking to God and meditation is listening to God.

If you wish to develop a deeper relationship with God and know God (as the Psalmist says), meditation is a wonderful spiritual practice that can help you. Any relationship takes investing time. To have a deeper relationship with God, we need to spend time with God. Meditation is a perfect opportunity to be still in God’s presence.  Here's what else you can also experience by practicing meditation.

Find Peace

Your mind will no longer race. You will feel a deep peace within your mind and spirit. This is the peace that surpasses all understanding.

Receive Guidance

You will be able to listen to God. Guidance will come through people, messages, songs, nature, and any number of ways. 

Ideas and Imagination

When you free your mind from fearful, anxious, crowded thoughts, you create space for your imagination and ideas to flow. 

Experience the Fruits of the Spirit

You will live your life with: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

Your Life Will Flow

Where you might have been stuck, through God's guidance and being tuned into God's Spirit within you, your life will take on an effortless flow... if you let go.

Deepen Your Relationship with God

You will feel a very deep love and connection to God. 

"I listened to Let it Go and Trust and became instantly peaceful. I noticed since listening to Be Still And Know That I Am God two times a day for the past several days that I'm calmer and have regained my peace!"

- Blessings! Linda
