Three Phases of Practicing Meditation

Thirty-five years ago, the idea of daily meditation seemed foreign to us. But today, it’s a normal part of our daily schedule, even if it means getting up thirty minutes earlier or skipping TV to do so.

People of all walks of life practice meditation now, unlike in the past when it was mainly for stereotypical radical spiritual devotees.

The scientifically documented health benefits may surprise you: improves regulation of emotions; decreases depression, inflammation, and stress; improves brain health and memory; increases peace of mind; releases a natural, healthy, feel-good brain opiate, and much more.

Three ascertainable stages exist in committing yourself to regular meditation. First, you wonder if you’re doing it right because nothing seems to happen. Next, you notice subtle changes in your perception of yourself and your life and you realize there’s really something to it. In the third stage you find the regular habit of meditation includes all the benefits listed above and it becomes as normal as going to bed and waking up in the morning. There’s no reluctance to do it, like you encounter in the first stage–you just do it to get your daily feel-good fix.

Don’t worry if you’re struggling to get past the first stage. Maintain discipline and you’ll eventually get the hang of it.

To the skeptics, we understand your cynicism because we’ve been there, but the science behind it is so overwhelming that we urge you to consider it.

In some cases, entering the second stage can be scary; don’t worry, you won’t become a vacant-minded zombie. Instead, you’ll learn to disengage from daily mind-dramas and monkey mind. Have you ever walked along a beach and the waves lulled you into a peaceful state of mind? That’s the feeling you can generate on a daily basis, anywhere–all you need is a little discipline.

We list five tips below to help you get started, or to go deeper if you’ve already started.

1. Keep in mind that meditation is best approached as a long-term discipline. You may feel at first that you’re just going through the motions. But if you stay the course, you’ll reach a point where you’ll know exactly when you’re (easily) entering a meditative state of mind. It may take you weeks or even months, but you will get there if you continue.

2. Drop your expectations. The reason that nothing seems to be happening at first is that nothing is supposed to happen, in a manner of speaking. The practice involves detaching from your mind, so of course it’ll seem like nothing is happening because you’re used to mind-chatter all the time.

3. Expect your subconscious mind to rebel, as it can do with major changes in your life. Your collective subconscious (fears and defenses) may react while you are attempting to detach from it, so recognize the ever-so creative impressions (e.g., an itch or “you forgot to turn off your oven”) generated by it to resist your efforts.

4. To avoid falling asleep in this discipline, get enough sleep and sit upright instead of lying down because your mind is conditioned to sleep lying laying down. You’ll find with practice that you’ll feel refreshed after meditation. Scientific studies have found that the process of meditation actually replicates many of the benefits of sleep, so you may need less sleep. In our long-term experience, waking up thirty minutes earlier for a meditation session before a busy day doesn’t seem like losing sleep due to the natural health benefits.

5. Sit comfortably (you don’t have to sit like a yogi), close your eyes, breathe deeply, and focus on your chest-plate (or third eye). You can also try laying your arms away from your sides and focus on letting all stress drain away. Or pretend you’re facing a wall of rock while mountain climbing, where your intense focus is vital. That’s all there is to it, along with the discipline to avoid quitting. Other helpful tips include slowly counting from one to 100 or 1000, doing it on an empty stomach such as first thing in the morning, trying it after exercise, and asking for help from your guides of the Light.

We encourage you to practice regular meditation to reap all the wonderful benefits, especially peace of mind.

The Visualization Meditation Technique

There are 5 categories of meditation:

  1. Concentration Meditation
  2. Reflective Meditation
  3. Mindfulness Meditation
  4. Heart-centered Meditation
  5. Creative Meditation

Of these 5…this article will focus on the Mindfulness Meditation category:

The Mindfulness Meditation is arguably one of the foremost and powerful meditation techniques. It places on cultivating a highly mindful and receptive attention towards any form of action or objects around your sphere of influence. Mindfulness meditation is amongst the types of meditations that aids you in learning a simple thing; which is to pay attention. This form of meditation is renowned for providing pain relief and help to those going through depression and anxiety.

Mindfulness Meditation is one of the foremost types of meditation, and it is considered to have a calming effect on the mind. The transformative power it has can’t be overstated. It gives one with great strength and conviction to redirect the course of one’s life. Below are 8 types of Mindfulness Meditation techniques that are equally very important.

  1. Vipassana meditation
  2. Deep breathing meditation
  3. Body scan meditation
  4. Visualization meditation
  5. Mindful breathing
  6. Mindful eating
  7. Sitting Meditation
  8. Walking Meditation

Of these 8 types…this article will actually focus on just one type of Mindfulness Meditation technique: the “Visualization Meditation”.

Visualization Meditation

There is no gainsaying the fact that one of the most powerful and inspiring a person can experience is visualization. It also goes hand in hand with being able to manifest what one wants to see, and then make it a reality. The mind is very powerful. It’s abilities, astonishing. And once you engage in the practice of visualization meditation, you can grow your abilities in leaps and bounds, especially towards starting the kind of life you desire.

Visualization Meditation requires focusing one’s attention on a visual object. It is quite popular and potent amongst all other types of meditation. It is more than just an inner technique, and it can affect the outer world’s conditions, directly. One actually gets benefits from visualization. Looking at it from one perspective, visualization is just another form of meditation per se, whereby one gazes upon the internal image, instead of the outer image of an object.

Visualization meditation allows for one to get more freedom to choose images he or she will concentrate on. One can actually imagine seeing any spiritual teacher, scene or object, without having to possess a physical image to see. Hence, one gets to possess an inexhaustible collection of images, from where any thing can be conceived. This is so that one can easily make a choice of the one that accurately represents and transmits power from the particular state one wants to visualize.

Visualization meditation goes a long way to help people achieve two things: closeness to their desired end state of mind; and the second is like the first: it rids their consciousness of negativity and inhibitions that withhold them. Once visualization meditation is constantly put into practice, the manifestation one seeks will be made manifest.

The Most Spiritual Life

Spiritual advancement is not a belief in non-Native American worlds. In a Native American world spirituality is life. Life is not viewed in a physical sense as much as a White, Black, and Asian existence views it. Indigenous people are spiritual by nature and strive to be entirely spiritual even in their physical life. Spiritually living is very different than physical minded living. By opening the spiritual world, life becomes different for a physically minded person. Living from a feeling of spirit is an example of spiritual existence.

Many people do not live by spirit but from mind and body.(As well as taught behaviors and environment). Living by the spirit is not something nonnatives people do by nature and probably could never to the extent of Native Americans. A Native American is the most spiritual living human being. The spirit of them naturally is different, and they are the most connected to the spirituality of life itself. A non-native person has a spirit, but their connection to the spiritual realm is very different. My views on the evolution of one’s life have nothing to do with achieving the impossible of becoming a Native American.

My views are concerning helping someone(anyone who wants to) become more spiritual minded as opposed to mental, physical, and environmental misteaching that can hinder someone’s spiritual connection to life. Thinking in an evolved approach can be related to a spiritual existence as opposed to a physical state of mind. From my understanding in my physical life, I have learned that physicality does not do such “great things” for people but rather sets them back from fully evolving. To evolve, one must lose the physical life and live in the spirit. How can you that if you are a physical being?

Let me ask you a question how you would become anything you just cannot be? That is true, but that does not prevent one from focusing on the spiritual part of your physical existence. So could a spirit in a spiritual life advance as a spirit? I am sure they can. They definitely could not physically evolve though just because of the simple fact that there is no physical life to “evolve.” Believe me; they wouldn’t want to live physically anyhow. So my point is it makes sense that in a physical life regardless of how spiritual someone is the spirit is there for someone to acknowledge and grow.

Though someone may be very physical minded it is not impossible to become more in tuned to the spiritual life. Why would it be? There is a soul everyone has. A soul is a spiritual life living inside of a physical body in a physical life. In other words if one has access to something why could someone not spiritually evolve through learning and development. So regardless of who someone is you have a spiritual side to your physical life.

I am a 35-year-old Native American woman, and I have learned a lot about myself along the way. I have learned about others as well. I respect other people’s right to be who they are and whether they appreciate who I am is of no concern to me. I live more like a spirit than a physical being. I was always surrounded by physical lives none that made much sense to me. From my life experience, I can offer some conclusions about what I think can help someone live spiritually. If any spiritual existence comes to be, that is a plus.

Otherwise, living in a physical life with no spiritual connection to life itself, will not further someone physically or spiritually. I have learned from other people. Their spiritual nature was lacking. Through that lacking came “types” of people and their behaviors I noticed. So that leads me to explain these guys and their ways. The connection I have found is that negative types of individuals who live with other people have a degree of a lack of spiritual existence. They are more physical in nature as opposed to someone more spiritual. The physical life engulfs the spirit, mind, and body in flames. Connection to the Spirit has an evolutionary impact on the furthering of one’s mind, body, and soul. No progress is ever made just by never changing. To become better evolution has to exist.

How does a physical life evolve? From taught behaviors that a physically minded person showed you. Listening to your instincts and your heart are all spiritual. Physical is simply blood and veins. Listen to your spirit and not your mind as much. Your sense tells you a lot and physicality will dumb you down. It is the physical life that lies to people. Through the mind and body in an unevolved existence of life is why a lack of spiritual understanding is there. By creating a spiritual understanding, you can start to live more like a spirit and become more spiritual.

Physical life directly holds one back from evolving not only spiritually but mentally and physically. Opening your connection to this realm is crucial. Many changes will come, and every individual will undoubtedly be affected in some way to some degree. Spiritual acknowledgment means a better life, more free, more happy, and more intelligent.

Some of the changes that can take place are as follows. That kid you went to school with, you ever notice? He or she wasn’t so kind to you or others right? That is an example of unevolved spiritual existence. When one evolves spiritually and loses the adverse effects of physicality the spiritual life shines and what a different life they have!

I can only try to guide and help, and no one tip is necessarily going to make one more spiritual. It takes wanting it and never losing sight of what you want. Talking to the Creator aka God to some will help. Listening to your heart and your soul is critical. What do you feel?

So you had a difficult childhood. People were dirtbags, and they kicked you around. They were obnoxious and always seemed to give you problems. How many people can relate? It’s that negative energy that can destroy you if you let it. A part of being spiritual has nothing to do with their negative energies. If anything by letting their ugliness hurt you and responding to them only hinders you from living spiritually and not advancing spiritually. The reason being that spiritually living is too evolved to care about unevolved physical life.

Keeping in mind what matters is a part of spiritual living. Not the stupid lowly physical habits and environmental teachings, some if not many, have adopted.

A New View of Self-Development

I know that there are many people who are very cautious or are ‘sitting on the fence’ when it comes to topics like psychic development and metaphysics, and I think this is due to the fact that these fields have received bad press by using their own jargon such as ‘connecting’, ‘channeling’ and ‘5th dimensional portals’ which sound very mysterious and strange to those who are not part of such groups or circles. So what I really want to do is de-mystify some ideas on psychic development and metaphysics by linking them to the normal process of human self-development and the scientific and psychological research which underlies this development.

A simple definition of metaphysics would be the study and practice of principles relating to the mind and reality which extend beyond our everyday understanding. This means a more universal and expanded framework of thinking than is currently taught in learning institutions.

I have made the statement that psychic or ‘spiritual” growth could be seen as linked to a natural process of self-development, having a gradual learning curve and being part of a continuum of growth which involves mastering new skills relating to feelings, thinking and perception. If we accept that we all have a higher, more spiritual and moral side (sometimes called the higher or authentic self in psychology), this could be seen as similar to a process of self-actualisation, and both personal growth and metaphysics could be seen as having the aim of achieving this self-actualisation.

Of course, metaphysics does present teachings which contain a number of ‘different’ views or ideas on life, death and what supposedly happens after death, some of which may seem radical, and you may argue that these ideas are simply another set of dogmatic beliefs. However, there is an important difference, in that metaphysics encourages free thought and provides an open-ended exploration of self and reality directed at the development of consciousness, in which each person is urged to find his or her own path. Truth is discovered in the heart by those who are sincere in their search, and each is allowed to decide this for him or herself.

To substantiate my earlier statement that psychic development can be linked to self-development, it will be seen that in most metaphysical teachings, similar to courses or coaching in personal development, each person is encouraged to deal with important emotional and psychological obstacles to growth, including repressed emotions, self-defeating thoughts and beliefs and closed paradigms of thinking. I personally do not believe that it is possible to achieve self-actualisation when one is caught in a web of fear-based thoughts and habits based on unpleasant experiences and memories from the past.

Self-exploration (iq) (intelligence quotient)

Metaphysical practices are aimed at self-introspection, emotional and psychological change and the learning of new skills designed to unleash the true creative power of the mind, build new levels of confidence and self-understanding and develop the latent abilities which we all have.

It is a well-known fact that meditation improves mindfulness and increases creativity. At the beginning of the development curve or continuum, metaphysics introduces practices such as meditation and visualisation for the purpose of self-exploration and self-empowerment, radically increasing mindfulness, producing a greater depth of understanding, deeper self-knowledge and the improvement of one’s self-image and self-esteem through self-acceptance. In this way these practices fulfill the same role as coaching or counselling.

Emotional development (eq) (emotional quotient) (emotional intelligence)

The next part of the curve would involve achieving a degree of emotional wellness, or emotional intelligence, which means developing empathy for others, identifying and managing our own emotions, and attaining a degree of emotional resilience to day-to-day challenges which may be stressful. A period of emotional healing is also necessary, during which we let go of lingering emotions from the past such as anger and resentment, and learn to forgive others as well as ourselves for past mistakes. This would apply to normal human development as well as training in metaphysics.

When it comes to emotional wellness, meditation is a recognised practice in some forms of therapy. It has also been shown to be useful as a means of de-stressing, as well as increasing the sense of control and self-mastery, which is certainly related to self-development.

Heightened levels of empathy that accompany an improved emotional intelligence (EQ) would correspond to an increased moral sense, which could also be related to metaphysical practices, which emphasise the brotherhood of man and the aspect of service to mankind.

The development of the mind.

Metaphysical practices also demand a clear and open mind. This means having to deal with outdated ideas, self-limiting beliefs and unwanted emotional ‘debris’ from the past, and ‘shifting gears’ to more universal or holistic patterns of thinking. Both self-development and metaphysics encourage this clearing or healing process, as well as the adopting of a more flexible framework of ideas which allows us to process and assimilate new insights and experiences.

the development of spiritual development or spiritual intelligence (spiritual quotient)
However, by its very nature, metaphysics extends beyond normal day-to-day self-development to include building a relationship with our subconscious minds, which will provide the underlying power for advanced new skills such as heightened sense perception, intuition, psychic sight and realisation of the higher self or soul. This meeting/ merging with the true human identity could be viewed as self-actualisation, and be seen as the apex of the developmental curve, or end of the self-development continuum.

Conclusion

The process of psychic and spiritual development as introduced in metaphysics follows a path similar to normal human self-development, but extends this process to include the highest possible levels of self-realisation. In this way it could be seen to have a foundation in human psychology and developmental processes.

Radical Departure From the Habitual Neurology – True Living Becomes Possible

Releasing oneself from the conventional neurology is not easy. However, it is possible. It helps us dissolve the common psychological negatives such as fear, anger, regret, attachment, resentment, self-pity etc. One can discover the factors that give us a push in the direction of a radical departure from the habitual road in which the vast majority of people is in a mad rush. In-depth living becomes possible.

It is well known that people’s life on this planet is primarily driven by the demand for ego satisfaction and ego security. This permeates the field of religion too, unfortunately. The other factor to be considered here is that human responses and reactions come from the conditioned mind. This matter of conditioning is a very deep one and human beings generally remain unaware of this. It is deep because three major factors affect it – genetic conditioning, cultural conditioning and past-life conditioning. As a result, people get into complications and suffer mentally even when their survival needs are well met. Reflective people begin to enquire into the basis of this suffering.

Imagine we are on a broad road in which thousands of people are pushing each other and hurrying along. We get pushed and we push others. There is a great momentum that keeps people arrested in this mindless rush. That is how the habitual neurology in an individual is moulded and people remain a slave to it from teenage onward. It is possible to release oneself from this deplorable situation and that would be like taking off from the broad road mentioned above. It is a radical departure from the conventional functioning of the mind. We no longer get pushed by the crowd and we stop pushing others too.

The Release
Before there can be a release from a captured situation, there should be an awareness of what is going on. Let us look at the legendary hero Tarzan. In many episodes, he gets imprisoned by horrid tribal people or savages. In most of them, if not all, Tarzan releases himself – primarily by his careful observation of the physical and functional factors that keep him arrested. Thereafter, his sagacity comes in and helps him free himself. The moral of this scenario is that the major factor in the release is a matter of awareness – an in-depth understanding of the situation one is in.

In the same way, what can help people make a radical departure from the captured situation of group psychology and habitual neurology is one of simple self-awareness – because the causal factors are all from one’s own mental conditioning. Again, as in the case of Tarzan, it is a matter of careful observation, awareness and perception.

Once we release ourselves and move into the branching off road, it becomes possible to lead a wholesome life because we would no longer be driven by the herd mentality. The freedom from that slavery leads to inner peace and one can understand the purity of aloneness. Abundant feeling flows towards all living beings naturally and without effort.

What can help?
The primary releasing factor is the awareness of our being captured by the conventional thought process in the form of fear, anger, regret, attachment, resentment, jealousy, and such ‘I’ associated neurosis. The more we observe ourselves being caught by that process, the more we discover what it means to be free. The following items can act as catalysts in the process of deepening self-awareness.

1. Being neither a believer nor a non-believer: Freedom from attachment to beliefs or their opposites – this can help us be explorers and, hence, put us on a journey of discovery.

2. Shattering readings: Going through books depicting the talks of some Masters can produce shattering readings. This is because such talks tend to demolish the psychological wall that we build around us in our ignorance sustained by the noisy mind. The shattering feeling is particularly evident when we read J. Krishnamurti’s presentation. Such Masters strike away all the moorings we hold on to as a result of misguided mental stance. Those moorings provide a false sense of security. Total surrender can take place only when all that the ego relies on is dissolved.

3. Messages from Near Death Experience (NDE): People who visit the afterlife for a brief period bring great messages that can help us free ourselves from the habitual neurology. It is clear from their messages that if we do not release ourselves from the slavery of group psychology, we would only waste our life and feel sorry for it towards the end. Once we get on to the branch road, we can appreciate the value of life beyond the ego demands. The NDE people, except those who still remain in the clutches of religious conditioning, are already on the branch road and so they can help others get on to it.

No religious or meditative system, method, formula or technique can ever help us depart from the main road, because they all inevitably feed the ego. Each one has to apply oneself to discover what can take us away from the habitual neurology. Once we see the value and the beauty of the release, the freedom from the main road would be accelerated. Inner conflicts begin to cease. One gets the energy to move into higher dimensions of consciousness, even as one fulfills the mundane responsibilities. Many NDE people live that way.

One of the things that take place after we get on to the side road is the shedding of the addiction to the social media. The newspaper and the TV news channels can be horrendous mental polluters. However, with the awareness of how harmful they can be, it is possible to have a marginal and innocuous association with them.

Buddha said, “Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue.”

Those who pay attention to the above metaphor of the departure from the main road discover several aids in daily life to free them from the conventional rut.

Financial Astrology

The Zodiac signs can be a good guiding factor in your financial fortunes (or even misfortunes). For those who believe in free astrology, the stellar constellation influences every walk of life including the financial gains or losses in an individual s life. The web world has numerous resources to understand this in depth and includes resources such as free astrology or astrology com

. Financial free astrology defined Financial free astrology and astrology com represents the use astronomic data to forecast movements in the financial market or the behavior in general. Different methods can be employed by a financial astrologer to arrive at the forecasts. Most of the methods however do have a liberal use of mathematics, geometry and astronomy. Financial free astrology is also known as business astrology or economic astrology. To gain more insight into the definition of financial free astrology you should refer free astrology or astrology com.

Application Major areas of applying financial free astrology and astrology com are:

1. Predicting the cyclical behavior of the outer planets as they apply to economic trends

2. Using the planetary configurations to help investors identify suitable industries during a given time frame

3. Identifying specific stocks for particular time frame

4. Identifying suitable dates for buy/sell operations

5. Relating the market movement during day trading with the astrological aspect For a deeper understanding of how each of these work, you should refer to free astrology or astrology com Varying degree of acceptance of free astrology The practice of financial free astrology is built on the belief that astrology does influence human behavior.

Though the Western thought might want to rubbish this, other forms of market pointers like technical analysis or fundamental analysis do tend to fail as often as the financial astrology predictions, or succeed at the same rate. Thus, in spite of having logical base, proponents of financial free astrology and astrology com hold that even the so-called logical methods are not fail proof. The concept that the traders moods are influenced by astrological aspects is propounded by a number of web sites giving out the planetary aspects governing the market on real time basis.

Free astrology/astrology com is among the resources to throw better light on this. It is arguable whether the correlation is perfect, but trained observers do derive some indications. Examples: To cite examples, statistic do reveal that during short durations such as 30 minutes, the markets tend to go down with more ease when there are more than two or just two free astrology aspects categorized as hard. Conversely, with soft aspects, the markets tend to go up, or such a possibility is greater. A flat market is represented by the absence of any of these aspects.

Very short durations such as 5 to 45 minutes can be correlated accurately with exact aspects of the relevant planets. Free astrology /astrology com has more on this to offer. End note Market hypothesis however goes to say that securities trading being at random, it is natural that while some traders make money others lose it. Those making money may hail their system that is so unique, like the technical analysis or financial free astrology and when the results fall on right end of a normal curve.
