Everything in the world is energy ...
- This includes the thoughts you think
- The emotions you feel
- The words you say
- The actions you take
- Your dreams and desires
- Your prayers and meditations
Your thoughts, emotions, sounds and actions, dreams and desires, prayers and meditations are all energy creating energy
Meditating can increase the quality of your daily life, your personal and professional relationships and how your actions manifest fully and lastingly in the world around you
Identify the difference between your thoughts and your intuition
- Intuitive experiences express themselves uniquely to each of us - via the physical body, differing emotions and inner images
- Meditation trains us to see more easily the differences between a thought and a true insight, knowing or intuitive response
Your Awareness is your greatest guide to intuitive accuracy as well as deeper meditations
Meditation decreases stress fast
- Another excellent value is that of stress management – this has been scientifically verified
- The longer the period meditated and the greater the gentle ability to focus increases, the slower the breathing, the less frequent the thoughts, the slower the brain waves and thus an alpha state is achieved
- In the alpha state, the whole mind/body as an energy field, relaxes and expands – this effects our physiology, stress levels, hormonal balance, general optimism, happiness and physical energy availability
Meditating gives you a hugely improved quality of life, love, relationships and more …. enjoy!
Simply meditate - where to start
Initially we can begin a daily meditation practice for a short, enjoyable amount of time and repeat once or twice daily … to get the most benefit commit to meditating daily by starting with shorter meditations and progressing to longer
A free, fabulous, simple meditation for you
Breathe Awareness Meditation is a simple place to begin your daily practice and suitable for all age groups including children
- Avoid outer distractions by turning off the phone, hanging up a ‘do not disturb’ sign, letting your family know, whatever is appropriate
- Sit comfortably with your legs crossed (floor) or feet flat on the floor (chair) and back straight but not rigid
- Place your thumb and index fingers together (called a mudra) on top of your legs with your palms upright
- close your eyes gently
- Focus your awareness on the breathe gently entering and leaving your nostrils
- This breathe awareness practice is one of many so as you settle into this practice, always gently and consistently return your awareness to your breathing whenever the mind wanders
- Even if the mind is very active with many thoughts coming and going, continue to return your awareness to observing your breathing – no criticism, judgement, just awareness
Regular practice of this technique increases your ability to focus and concentrate ... it's most profound contribution is to your ability to engage, appreciation and enjoy your life in every moment
- No two meditations are ever the same so gently persist daily for great benefits
- Increase your meditation times as you feel drawn to once to twice daily
Your aim is to calm the mind through breath awareness – this naturally increases your peace of mind, awareness and creativity, problem solving and aids you in experiencing the difference between a thought AND an intuitive experience … and much more
