Meditation TipIn my opinion, there is no right way to meditate because meditation is a personal inward journey. What I mean by this is that as you practice meditation, you begin to notice there are certain aspects that will make it easier for you to practice it. For instance, sitting erect with a relaxed spine, makes a sitting meditation easier to do. If you started practicing a sitting meditation with your spine tense, then it is more challenging to do. Having said this, you should "come as you are"

Mindful Eating Exercise

For today's Monday Meditation we will cultivate our awareness of the present moment with this mindful eating exercise.

 

Mindfulness is about the awareness that you bring to each present moment. Anything done with mindful awareness and focus, such as eating, driving and washing dishes can be considered a meditation.

 

Being mindful is very helpful because it relieves stress and anxiety. This is due to the fact that your awareness is in the present moment. You are not focused on the past or worrying about the future.

Meditation for Anxiety & StressStress and anxiety are related. Many times they are a result of a perceived threat or negative thought. As a result, you undergo a stress response. You releases all types of stress hormones, such as adrenaline and cortisol. These stress hormones have profound effects on your body. Your blood pressure rises, your immune system gets suppressed, along with a whole series of reactions.

 

Meditation affects the body in exactly the opposite ways that stress does. It restores the body to a calm state, helps the body to

Lotus Pose

If you are finding it challenging to sit comfortably in a meditation posture for more than a few minutes, then it is possible that you need to relax certain areas of your body. There are two regions, I suggest you focus on. They are the hip (pelvic region) and the lower back.

Raise your vibration with meditation

Question

What are some ways to raise my vibration to relieve anxiety and stress?

Answer

Meditation is one way in which to raise your vibration. It raises your vibration because you let go and allow higher vibrating (source) energy to flow through your body by releasing your thoughts. You let go of the mental chatter and thereby allow energy to flow through your body. Conversely this means that your thoughts can curtail the amount of energy that you allow into your body.

Your mind is a garden

Your mind is a garden.Your thoughts are the seeds. You can grow flowers or you can grow weeds. Have you realized the seed thoughts that are floating around in your head on a daily basis? Are the majority of these negative or positive thoughts? If you are experiencing anxiety, then a majority of them are negative in nature and they directly affect your anxiety level. Negative thoughts increase anxiety levels and positive thoughts decrease anxiety. This is due to the fact that negative thoughts cause a release of

Human Energy FieldWhat do you do when you start the meditation for anxiety and stress process and start to release "energies"(emotional and/or physical) faster than you have the time to adjust? Well this is known as a healing crisis. When a healing crisis occurs, you have several options:

 

  1. Do more of what you are doing in order to move the "energy", which can manifest itself emotionally and/or physically. For instance, your daily qigong practice of 20 minutes may have "released" an old emotional wound you had carrying around for

Thich quoteYesterday I was reminded of the beauty of being present by a movie, 50 First Dates. For those who have not seen it, in the movie, the main female character played by Drew Barrymore has a memory problem. Her short-term memory is only good from the time she awakens until the time that she falls asleep. As a result, every day is a new day for her. Every day she wakes up and forgets about what happened yesterday. Of course, there is more to it in the movie,

Emptying your cup storyBased on the zen story presented in the tea meditation article, I received a question on how to explain emptying a cup to a person who has not started meditating.

 

Answer

That question has many levels to it. It all depends on your level of consciousness. How does a beginner start to understand this? As stated in the story "You are full of your own opinions and assumptions and must let them go. How can you learn truth until you first empty your cup?" In relation to

Mindful Eating

 

How can mindful eating help you with anxiety, stress and emotional healing? Well, most people eat without thought to what they are eating. They are actively engaged in conversation, thinking about something in their head, watching tv, etc. All of these activities can be stressful, cause one to become anxious or exacerbate your anxiety. If you spend the time to focus on what you are doing, you will quiet the mental chatter. When you quiet the mental chatter, you reduce stressful hormones, you become less

Raise your Vibration

 

What is raising your vibration?

As a practitioner of qigong, I like to explain many aspects in terms of energy. Energy is all around us and it vibrates at a certain level. The level at which you vibrate is a reflection of the level of health, stress and anxiety you have in your life. When you are in a relaxed, uplifted mood and healthy state, then collectively you are vibrating at a level above the "I feel good" bar. (Please watch video below)
