3 Strategies for Quieting The Mind ~ Meditation

Mar 25, 13 3 Strategies for Quieting The Mind ~ Meditation

Posted by in Blog

Have you ever sat down to meditate, just to have your mind RACE with thoughts?  How can you quiet a mind that just wants to run wild?  Here are three of the best techniques for quieting the mind, and mastering meditation. 1. The Mantra Deepak Chopra really advocates using a mantra.  Mantras can be any word or sound  that tends to relax you.  Deepak promotes the use of ancient words that he claims the ‘soul will recognize’.  The word ‘Om’ (or Aum) is considered one of the most elemental sounds on his list, and is a common choice.  If the idea of chanting a mantra out loud makes you uncomfortable, don’t worry – its not necessary!  My experience shows that Mantras are best used in your head (at least for me.). A simple mantra for beginners to try is just to say the word ‘Calm” on your inhale and ‘Peace” on your exhale.  You want to put all your focus into reciting the sound with the goal being that it drowns out all other thoughts.   It’s hard to think about your grocery list or that stupid thing you said yesterday while you’re sinking into the feeling of the word ‘peace’.  If your mind wanders, just refocus on the words, one for your inhale and one for the exhale.  Keep those nit-picky thoughts at bay! 2. The Count-Down This is a method advocated by Spirit Science. (a great YouTube Channel, I highly recommend looking up some of their videos if you haven’t before.)  Find a quiet place, relax, close your eyes and slowly count backwards from 100 to zero.  In this case, you use the numbers just like the mantra – to block out other thoughts.  You want to focus on the numbers.  I like to say 99 on the inhale, 98 on the exhale etc. The countdown is really effective because mentally, you learn to manage the boredom of being in the 80’s, and then the anticipation of being in the 20’s  ...

VIDEO of the MONTH ~ Sadhguru Talks Enlightenment

Mar 25, 13 VIDEO of the MONTH ~ Sadhguru Talks Enlightenment

Posted by in Blog

Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev is an Indian Spiritual Guru.  In this video he shares his moment of ‘Enlightenment’ and shares what this experience is like, and how we can seek it for ourselves.  I really enjoy listening to Sadhguru as he has a gentle sense of humour and is very down to earth.  He’s very practical and non-prostelitizing.  (I also find him easier to understand than the Delhi Lama!;) The question ‘What is Enlightenment’ can be a long discussion, with many differing opinions.  But if you are curious, this is a great introduction to the concept and at the same time it is entertaining and inspiring.  I found this one at www.TED. (If you are not familiar with the site, get familiar!  It’s the best!) Let me know what you think! Watch this video on YouTube...

Dr. Coulas – Optimal Life Chiropractic

Mar 18, 13 Dr. Coulas – Optimal Life Chiropractic

Posted by in Health & Wellness

I have become aware that we are more spiritual than we are physical. Through my experience of chiropractic and acupuncture I realized that the biggest cause of disease is the separation of the physical from the spiritual source With this awareness came a realization that there are ways to reconnect to this source. When we open our intention to our greatness and our divine potential we can reconnect to who we were meant to be. Seeing Eric Pearl on YouTube videos resonated deeply in me so much so that it would keep me up at night. It was all I was thinking about so I registered for a seminar with Dr. Pearl Himself. I was instantly able to feel the frequencies and they were working in me.  These reconnective frequencies facilitate healing on many levels. They bring peace, Balance and alignment to your souls true life path. Some people are in need of a reconnective healing which is designed to let your body come back to it’s balance of physical, mental spiritual/emotional selves.  Other are ready to accelerate their true life path and for this I recommend the complete reconnection. I know this work is here to assist us in these rapidly changing times now on this planet. We must expand our consciousness and reconnect to the light and information from a universal source.
