Quest for Meditation

By Dr. Ravikant Bharati

What is meditation?

Humble Beginning

We were all born into meditation. A state of mind where there is no mental activity at all. A perfect state of thoughtlessness, which has been described by many words in many languages; A blissfully peaceful state of mind known as ‘Samadhi’ as per Indian philosophy, and which literally means fulfilled. Although the human organism born with these characteristics is ignorant of this wealthy fact, very soon the surrounding psychological environment will rob him out of this ultimate existence. Take over and destroy this possibility which in fact is totally meditative and uniquely satisfying.

Learning

In order to survive in this physical world, under the garb of intellectual growth we learn all about the environment surrounding us. From spiritually empowered existence, we start moving into the physical plane of human beings where the mind along with its relative activities comes in to play. In the process of discovering the pleasures of human existence seductively spread all around us, we gradually move away from the spiritual point of view where we started the journey, hardly realizing that we are fast losing that unadulterated virgin state of being.

Nevertheless, as interest grows within our physical appearance and the process of discovering the mysteries of existence, we tend to lose track of the point from where this relationship initially started. So far so good, we are doing great in the worldly ways improving physically and mentally while growing into youth. In order to attain a success story we have also added numerous false dimensions like fame, money, intelligence and so much more. Apart from the basic instincts required for survival which we were born with, we seem to have mastered the art of adding more rubbish to the baggage that hardly helps our peak performance.

Thirst for Freedom

Just like beating around the bush, we keep dancing with the substitutes instead of going for the real show. That original blissful thoughtless state of mind where we simply exist as a being is now intelligently termed as meditation with an initial craving to bring back into our living. Essentially, all activities, or inactivity which can bring about a thoughtless state of mind is meditation.

Undoubtedly, the show must go on and so does our mind, even when we say we are deep in meditation. There is no escaping; we are on what seems to be an endless journey where mind with all its restlessness will only stop either in sleep, or physical death. Incidentally, this possibility of a No-Mind as envisaged by sages & masters all over the world exists in a ‘Samadhi’, a refined blissful state of mind set to acquire innocence. Innocence here refers to a condition which is substantially differing from ignorance, although their external appearance may look similar.

Fulfillment

This individual will now knowingly perform as per will and not merely react to enforcing circumstances. Displaying a stability which is unique and charming in appearance, quite similar to the point where the journey of life initially began, the transformed subject in now pure, fresh and virgin like the evening breeze, effortlessly kissing the vast open expanse of life. This all pervasive silence is astonishingly revealing itself, while you are able to cut out the clutter and irrelevant noise.

Dr. Ravikant Bharati has professionally always been creatively active. He loves painting, writing and making music. Yoga came into his life accompanied by his artistic pursuits. Seeds of awareness were sown into his being quite early in life, and subsequently meditation is deep rooted and strongly ingrained in his presence. His understanding is uniquely original and born out of personal experiences in life.

Did you know that you can consciously improve your ability to get into deeper states of consciousness by using or leveraging audio meditation?

See a lot of people just use them for that instant relief and unwinding from the end of a long work day, but you can actually use them in a way that helps you to condition deeper and deeper states of relaxation, mindfulness, de-stressing and meditation. You just kind of have to modify your outlook.

Most people don’t see it this way, but it is kind of exciting that you can actually entrain yourself to enter deeper states of consciousness… becoming more conscious of consciousness in a way! Fortunately, audio meditations are already helping you with that process of guiding you into a less-cluttered state.

In many ways, it is easier for beginner and intermediate meditators to use guided audio meditation to help get into those more relaxed, Zen and egoless states of consciousness because they aren’t as conditioned to just be in those states. In a way you really have to work on being ‘out of the condition’ of the ego. You can also use guided meditations that work on heart or sexual consciousness to work on conditioning yourself into more of those zen-like states where you are just ‘being’ and not fettered by the clutter of your mind.

What I teach with Self-Awakening covers a holistic approach to consciousness because you can be egoless in your emotional, sexual, spiritual and physical consciousness (not just spiritual) outside of your thinking states of waking consciousness.

So you can use a more advanced and almost performance-based outlook with spirituality in order to improve your ability to be in deeper states of relaxation. How can you do it?

As you keep going through the same guided audio meditation over days and weeks, try and see how fast you can get into a deep relaxed state as soon as possible. I do recommend using one good audio meditation resource which you can condition to. Each time you go through it, you can kind of gauge where you are at by the time it reaches new words.

Try and take yourself into a more relaxed state every time or at least set a standard of reaching the real effect and intention of the guided audio meditation. All of this becomes more powerful when you take on a greater definition of self where your emotional, sexual, physical and spiritual consciousness (which are all egoless) becomes deepened in your awakening journey. That is very different than an ego-driven definition of self with a quick ‘unwinding’ at the end of the day before you go back to the same stresses of your work to repeat the shallower cycle all over again.

The more you get into spirituality and spending more time in deeper states of consciousness (and there are different ways beyond just zen meditation), the more it will become normal for you to just BE present, de-stressed and more youthful. You’ll actually start living and ‘being’ more in a relaxed, present, zen-like state where the stresses of the world don’t affect you as much. And when you go back into any type of meditation session, being so experienced from your past (conditioning), you’ll be able to more effectively stay and remain in consistent, deeper states. This is very beneficial for your health and wellbeing and your monkey mind ego won’t ‘own’ you as much.

There are plenty of benefits to meditation as you already know and becoming more spiritual with an expanded definition of self as Mind, Body, Heart, Sexiness and Soul will also help your ability to be in deeper states. Fortunately good guided audio meditations like Powerliminals can help you in different areas of consciousness to keep and condition you more into your egoless and greater self experience; fun, free and happy as can be.

The Danger of Thoughtlesss Meditation

By William Epperson

Prayer uses language in order to create emotions which are conveyed to the lord by our heart using a communication method I can’t figure. The subject of this article is the Danger of Thoughtless Meditation. In spite of the benefits that accrue in meditation there are pitfalls. I have told you that when the change was done the images and scenes were noticeably richer and more abundant than that which words had ever provided. When you ignore thoughts and words you thereby are making available great deal of attention which is typically devoted to thought or word production.

All this is experientially great. I mean a thousand words from an image is a lot easier than thinking up a description of the image and then forming syntax. And what about having all that attention available. Freed from whatever language you think in. What it does for meditation, is much closer to indescribable. I have a fair handle on the English language and I swear that there are no English words for what I have seen. If I attempt to apply English words, I only succeed in cheapening the experience.

Peoples reason for meditating ranges far. Many do it because they wish to remove anxiety, or to relieve pressures from modern living. My reason to begin meditating was to attempt to understand why I was experiencing terrible creatures in my waking visual field. I never understood why I experienced these visions but I did learn how to control them. At least to remove them from my visual field.

The danger of thoughtless Meditation comes in several ways. The attractiveness of an environment where all thinking has been ignored, cannot be over estimated. It is the most pleasant experience in meditation that I have experienced. Imagine, no words to provide anxiousness or regrets. No thoughts about responsibility, no to- doe’s. No views to start new thoughts. The visual field is dark and I am usually waiting for an image to inspect. I believe that these ‘comes from somewhere’ images are a product of of a very sophisticated plan to demonstrate to us why we are alive and to demonstrate the uselessness of spending our attention on wealth and material acquisitions. If we can see the two realities juxtaposed the choice is clear for the self-actualizer. It should be clear that meditation for the mediator involves entrance into the Lords realm. Everyone should understand that one of HIS miracles was the creation of eternal life. Once we enter HIS territory HE is aware of us.

This awareness will place direct attention us and we will become one one of his people. You will notice his help. Please do not piss HIM off.

Plenty of misconceptions have been distributed regarding hypnotism and its success. Self-hypnosis will help you change your life in manners that you simply weren’t aware of. Doctors have observed results from individuals with various types of diseases who have remissions which could not result from treatments. The reason why something works when the brain is stimulated to many people is baffling. Experts have confirmed that amazing modifications take place when individuals aim to change their subconscious mind.

The actions people make use of to empower self-hypnosis are generally mixed, but the principals remain the same. Techniques employed in the course of self-hypnosis are broken down into four area’s:

Setting

Relaxation

Scripts

Release

These four area’s may be established to suit your needs, everyone isn’t going to do them exactly the same way. The Techniques you utilize for your self-hypnosis is personalized to you to enable you to reach the best results.

Once you begin the techniques for self-hypnosis you would like to choose the best environment. The environment ought to be a place for you to be completely tranquil and will not be disturbed throughout the self-hypnosis session. The site needs to be comfortable in climate (not too hot or too cool), draft free so that you will not notice a sudden air flow, peaceful so that you can focus on the results you want to happen. All gadgets ought to be turned off during the session to prevent interruptions. People have been proven to practice self-hypnosis anywhere, these ideas are ones which work best.

When you have positioned yourself in a location in places you is going to be comfortable with no interruptions, then it’s time for you to begin. Start a bit of music, nothing which will have pulsing sounds or jarring notes. The songs should be something sounds a bit relaxing something that you could become aware of, although not automatically sing out along. The songs should also be playing lightly it needs to be background music. After that place yourself in a sitting pose, either on the ground or in an appropriate chair. Once you’re seated in a comfortable posture, in a pleasant place, with smooth tunes actively playing, start to loosen up. Make sure you are considering just of a single item. The item you want to change in your lifestyle. Don’t think about what will likely be offered for dinner, just what motion picture will be on the television, anything job connected, keep your thoughts aimed your main goal. Begin to inhale comfortably carefully having a strong emphasis. As soon as you get to a point in places you do not become aware of other things going on around you in addition to what you’re concentrating on, then you’re able to start the next phase.

When you’ve got reached a point of comfort, between simply being totally conscious and fantasizing, then you can certainly begin to replicate your script to your self. A self-hypnosis script is one thing you replicate to your own self that will focuses on a good outcome, but something that you would like to modify. An example of a self-hypnosis script is?I ‘m shedding weight!?,?I do something now?,?I don’t like the taste of cigarettes?. Resist using negative thoughts unless little else may have the same exposure to you. Scripts are much like versions for movies or plays. The actual scripts are widely-used to set in place tones as well as to make you envision a result that you would like to take place. The thing is to mention the script around over and over again over the self-hypnosis session simply put subconscious will absorb your message. Altering your subconscious will result in your achieving your main goal.

Once you’ve recurring a person’s script over a time period of time, the next step is for you to generate your subconscious and rejoin the whole world as a whole. Concluding this is actually the identical to waking from a desire or a rest. These are the techniques you should employ to utilize self-hypnosis inside your life.

What Is Third Eye Meditation?

Lord Shiva by the uploader

By Himanshu Jakhar

Third eye meditation is one of the many enigmatic concepts that have befuddled the human mind from centuries. This type of meditation primarily focuses on the ajna (brow) chakra according to Hindu spirituality.

According to Hindu mythology, Lord Shiva, the destroyer of the universe possesses the ‘Third Eye‘ which is located between his eyebrows and a little higher than the bridge of the nose. Whenever the universe is threatened by the immoral atrocities committed by mankind, the sacred energy of the third eye engages and burns down the evil to ashes. When Lord Shiva calms down aftermath, he lets the generative energy flow through his third eye to create a new universe.

Through third eye meditation, you establish contact with your inner energies and accumulate them to help you advance to higher levels of spiritual consciousness. You acquire the wisdom to distinguish the layers of this material world and beyond.

To practice third eye meditation, find a quiet and comfortable place. Sit down and take a few deep breaths. Open the doors and windows of your mind and let all the troubling thoughts and feelings escape.

Close your eyes. While breathing in and out, concentrate on the region between your eyebrows i.e. the third eye. Visualize your deep breathing activate this space. Believe that your third eye is a gateway to the state of realization: where you can allow the conscious to expand beyond the earthly levels.

Feel the freedom that comes with the higher knowledge. Let your spirit lose to taste the waters of the deepest seas and scale the height of the highest peaks! As you delve to search the meaning of your existence, you experience a connection with you mind through your third eye. Remain in contact with your mind and still allow your soul to travel to the places that you cannot possibly imagine exist in the material world.

Now, you are in a state where nothing: no thought, emotion or situation, can snatch away this moment: the celebration of stillness, contentment and happiness. Take some deep breaths and let your mind absorb the calmness and allow it to enter the complex layers of the unconscious. Listen to the voices within, the ones you may have left unheard in the hullabaloo of your busy life. Let these voices resonate with every particle of your mind.

With some more deep breaths, let your body and soul slowly be engulfed by the liberated energy. This energy travels from your third eye down to the other parts of the body, sending positive sensations to your spine, moving down to your feet and the soles of your feet. Now, imagine this energy flow link you back to the daily chores of your ‘regular’ life. But now, you’re calmer and stronger to face the challenges for you possess the divine knowledge grasped through the third eye.

This sense of being alive from within empowers you to transmit this energy to other people around you. Allow others to also discover the answers to their innumerable questions by spreading the message of third eye meditation.

Memory, Alzheimer’s and Meditation

By Michael Hadfield

Meditation itself is well-known to have beneficial effects: like slowing down the physiological effects of ageing, lowering blood pressure, and reducing stress. It was thought to be a slow process, but some new research has found a marked benefit in a group that only meditated for the 8 week duration of the study.

The study was to test the impact of meditation on age-related cognitive impairment. 15 people were enrolled in the study with ages from 52-77. All were suffering from some form of memory impairment, cognitive dysfunction, or Alzheimer’s. None of them had any prior experience with meditation or yoga.

At the end of the study all the participants reported improved memory or cognitive function. This was supported by brain scans, taken before and after, which showed significant changes. The study itself was over an 8 week period and the participants were asked to meditate daily for just 12 minutes. So results are produced fairly rapidly.

This study was a small-scale preliminary study, consequently it isn’t possible to draw definite conclusions or start to make amazing claims about the power of meditation, but they used a form of meditation, Kirtan Kriya that I hadn’t come across before, so I checked it out and thought I’d give it a go and see if I noticed any effects.

One of the problems with regular meditation is that it isn’t much fun. This is one of the reasons why I have started to create meditation CDs to make the process much more enjoyable. The boredom factor is also another of the reasons why it’s difficult to notice any benefits you may gain from meditating. It’s easy to do something when your body gives you immediate positive feedback. Not so easy when all you get is 10 minutes relaxation and during that time you have to focus on something like a mantra or your breathing, rather than on your much more interesting thought world.

Now when I checked out the details of Kirtan Kriya meditation I found it was quite different from anything I had done before, but I was immediately presented with a problem.

Kirtan Kriya is a Kundalini yoga meditation based around a chant consisting of four sounds: Sa Ta Na Ma voiced with long a’s at a pace of around one sound per second.

Here are the rules:

  • Sit cross-legged, or in a straight-backed chair.
  • As you chant Sa, touch tips of thumbs and forefingers.
  • As you chant Ta, touch tips of thumbs and middle fingers.
  • As you chant Na, touch tips of thumbs and ring fingers.
  • As you chant Ma, touch tips of thumbs and little fingers.
  • Repeat this chant in a normal voice for 2 minutes.
  • Repeat this chant in a whisper for 2 minutes.
  • Repeat this chant in silence (as thoughts) for 4 minutes.
  • Repeat this chant in a whisper for 2 minutes.
  • Repeat this chant in a normal voice for 2 minutes.

You can see that this is a cycle within a cycle. The cycle of finger/thumb contact moving round the fingers, and the cycle of loud, quiet, silence, quiet, loud. The sounds themselves are another cycle. Sa represents the beginning, Ta is life, Na is death, Ma is rebirth & regeneration.

My problem was how I time the minutes without breaking my concentration to open my eyes to look at a clock, or set and reset a timer. One possibility was simply to meditate eyes open and watch the clock. That was a possibility and I was going to see if that would work when I found this amazing recording by Wahe Guru Kaur. So I made myself comfortable in front of my computer and started listening.

I think I have a pretty good sense of time and I thought I must have got something wrong, or this wasn’t what I needed, because loud seemed to be going on for an awful lot longer than two minutes. I was just about to stop and turn it off when it changed to a whisper, so I closed my eyes and continued listening.

It turned out that this was a 30 minute version of a Kirtan Kriya meditation. 5 minutes out loud, 5 minutes whisper, 10 minutes silent, 5 minutes whisper and 5 minutes out loud. And it was really good.

The first thing I did this morning, before starting work, was to listen again. It has left me with a feeling that I want to do it, rather than I should. Why this audio track works so brilliantly and makes the meditation so easy is that for the out loud parts you have Wahe Guru Kaur’s beautiful voice to speak along with. So any embarrassment about muttering weird sounds to yourself is gone completely. There is also a really pleasant background track to listen to. The beat in this is synchronised with the sounds so you don’t lose track of the timing when it gets to the silent bit.

My own feeling is that this meditation is bringing body and mind back into balance. The finger-thumb touching with both hands is activating both brain hemispheres. The chant forces your breath into new rhythms – and breath is powerfully connected to emotional states and the releasing of negative emotions. So you can see that even physiologically it has the potential to be beneficial without needing to subscribe to any mystical beliefs about the power of meditation – though you can do that too if you want.

A quick search around the internet reveals many other beneficial claims made for the benefits of this particular meditation, so why not try it out.

Set Yourself A Life Goal In Meditation

By Geoffrey J Norman

Hopefully you have thought about setting yourself some meditation goals. Well now may be the right time to do this in a more formal, written, fashion because writing things down helps to cement them in your mind. You will be much more likely to follow through with your meditation sessions and achieve your goals if they are written down.

First, consider what attracted you to meditation in the first place. What was the path that led you here? Perhaps you know someone who meditates on a regular basis. Or, perhaps you read something about it in a magazine or saw it being mentioned on the news. Maybe you were searching the Internet one day and the topic came up, and you were interested right away.

The way you were initially attracted to meditation can really tell you something about your goals. Perhaps you were in the midst of feeling incredibly stressed out and you are searching for a solution. In your case, stress relief is likely your goal. Or, maybe you are just seeking enlightenment and want something more and better out of your life.

We are all seeking something. Figure out what you are seeking and phrase it in the form of a goal. Keep in mind that your ambitions and goals for meditation need to be very specific. You can’t just specify that you don’t want to feel stressed out anymore.

You really do need to visualize, and write down, your exact goals and the way you wish to live your life. For instance, you can have the goal that you will no longer felt stressed about a particular situation.

Really, you should consider the benefits of writing in a journal to track your journey through meditation. This is an excellent place to write down your goals as well. Keep in mind that your life’s goals might change and shift over time this is definitely to be expected.

Brainstorm some goals right now. What do you wish to happen when you are meditating? What changes would you like to see in your life? How do you want to react to friends and family members.

Goal setting is something that people who are successful in life do as a standard. No matter how great or outrageous your ambition, goal setting can help get you there.

Now, it’s incredibly easy to want to just dismiss the idea of setting goals. However, you are definitely urged not to. By setting goals you are sending the message out in the world of what you want to achieve. You will start work towards these goals (consciously and subconsciously) and you will get what you’re asking for.

Meditation itself can even give you clarity about your goals. This is a wonderful thing, because you can achieve your goals through meditation, and meditation can help you achieve your goals. Do yourself a favor and start a journal of your short, medium and long-term goals today.

Be as specific as possible about what you want to achieve and how you think meditation can help get you there. If possible, fully visualize yourself attaining your goals to cement them even further in your mind.

To find out more about Goal setting and meditation techniques visit the Nine Minute Meditation website and enjoy a good look around. http://nineminutemeditation.net You owe it to yourself fully understand your life goals so do it now.

What exactly is meditation? It appears that so many people today are hooked up with this form of activity. By definition, meditation is frequently employed to describe the individual’s state of intense focus on an object of awareness or believed. The person tries to turn his or her attention inward. Meditation is stated to become of Vedic Hinduism origin. This can be typically practiced inside the eastern religions but now even the western culture is already involved in such activity.

Folks want to practice meditation to ensure that they’re able to concentrate their thoughts to God for their personal development, to attain peace of mind, and to be healthier.

Many Americans are now involved in some type of meditation. According to Time Magazine there is one meditation practice that will be employed by virtually anyone. This may be regarded as as the simple primer of Americans wanting to begin meditation but have no thought exactly where to start.

There was a book published last November 2005 authored by Victor Davich that is all concerning the 8 minute meditation. If you purchase the book and study it very carefully, you are going to learn lots of things about meditation, and you’ll be able to do it in just 8 minutes.

Nearly each and every person who starts with anything new to him or her will frequently have lingering questions, hopes, and doubts about it. There are even individuals who hopes that when they begin to meditate, they will be enlightened. Or maybe you are among those folks who believe that meditation is just like an physical exercise or diet program that you’ve been attempting to do for the past handful of months. But these items are typical; so Don’t be surprised if you’re also like that.

The best issue to accomplish would be to face each of the constructive and/or negative expectations, and right after performing so, forget about them and begin using a clean slate. If you would like to attempt the 8-minute program of meditation, you should discover how to approach it one minute at a time.

Whilst numerous folks believe that meditation is a simple practice, then you’d better feel twice. You may not notice it, but your thoughts is often racing from right here to there. You cannot concentrate. In accordance with the book’s author, you need to watch your breath. This really is the really first step to meditation. Do your inhalation and exhalation by breathing deeply. If you often do that and just keep on practicing, you’ll be able to become excellent in meditation.

As a word of reminder, if you catch your self contemplating other issues, or in other words your thoughts strays off, concentrate once again on your breathing. Following all, meditation is all about concentrating and if you recognize that you happen to be not on the right track, you’ll be able to always return to that state of thoughts gently. Don’t get discouraged simply and just preserve on practicing. There’s a popular saying that says practice tends to make ideal; so always keep that in thoughts.
