The state of meditation – Techniques to get there

Towards-Spiritual-Meditation

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.

One of the important topics in the videos is the fact that a lot of people find meditation difficult. In fact, probably due to trying advanced meditations or meditations that were not suited to them, most people find it either boring or hard.
The main problem I hear is, “I can’t seem to clear my mind”
or
“How can I think about nothing?”
Well, what I say in my new videos is that strict meditation techniques may not be suited to all beginners and you should be open to explore the diverse selection of meditation techniques that are available.
Sitting cross-legged chanting om and clearing your mind of all thoughts is the traditional picture of meditation but this and similar techniques are in fact…  simply techniques.
Techniques to help you get to the state of meditation.
The techniques are not the meditation, the techniques simply lead you towards a place where you can enter into the state of meditation.
Different techniques are suitable for some people more than others.  It is a very personal thing… you really need to explore the thousands of different techniques that are out there to find which ones you are most attracted to.
In the end, the state of meditation is the same whether you are sitting in the lotus position under a tree or if you are jumping up and down in one of Osho’s dynamic meditations.
The end result is the same…
The techniques are many, but there is only one state of meditation.
Here is an article by the people at psychic universe which offers 5 simple alternatives to traditional meditation.

Developing an easy and fun meditation practice

This is a great article from susangregg.com that offers a really good and simple way to get into mediation.

Meditation is a powerful gift. Once you develop a regular practice you will be amazed at how your life changes. At first it will be small things like you sleep better or you find yourself easily handling situations that in the past caused a great deal of stress.

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Imagine opening a doorway that leads directly into your heart or spirit,open it, walk in and allow yourself to bask in it.

New 432Hz tuning brings music into harmony with our chakras and our DNA

Switching to Natural 432Hz Harmonics | Inspiritualization

432Hz

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.
