I’ve been busy this week creating a series of guided meditations and as a part of the project I have prepared some introductory videos on meditation.
Some people report quitting smoking effortlessly after many years of unsuccessful attempts. I have been meditating for over 30 years and I could write a book about all the wonderful things that have happened as a results of taking 15 to 20 minutes a day to meditate.
An easy way to meditate
This simple 3 step process works. As with anything the more you practice the easier it gets.
- Find a comfortable place to sit with your back straight. Take a few long, slow deep breaths and focus your attention on relaxing and quieting your body.
- Allow your thoughts to fade into the background and keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Sometimes I imagine my thoughts written on the surface of some water and run my hand through them, watching them blur and then disappear.
- Imagine opening a doorway that leads directly into your heart or spirit,open it, walk in and allow yourself to bask in it.
This intriguing article talks about a movement that is currently campaigning for the change of the traditional ‘concert pitch’
At the moment, concert pitch is measured from the note ‘A’ correlating it so that it vibrates at 440 Hertz. It is now being suggested that this should be changed to 432 Hertz, a change of 8 cycles per second. The change in pitch is hardly noticeable even to the most highly trained ear being a difference of approximately one eighth of a tone.
Basing the tuning of instruments on the new A=432Hz standard makes complete sense. The slight flattening or lowering of the scale brings the vibrations and harmonics of all music into line with our DNA and with our chakras. More specifically with the heart chakra.
When I was composing the Healing Chakras CD I researched into the frequencies of each chakra and their corresponding lightwaves. As each chakra has its own color I halved the wavelength of this color, then halved it again and again and again until I got down to an audible frequency. In each case I came up with the nearest key or tone for each of the colors and chakras. The tones I came up with however were all a little out and if I had have used the new 432Hz standard they would have been spot on.
Check out the article on their website (link at the top of this post) because they go into extreme detail about this. I find it fascinating and for me it has answered a lot of questions and makes complete sense. I will be using this tuning from now on when ever I can.
