The Calm Within CD

November 27th, 2006

Stress and your health

Stress and Tension are unfortunately both a part of our modern lifestyle and can affect almost everyone at some time in their life. Occasional stress is not necessarily a bad thing and can help one to perform at one’s peak when the pressure is on. Chronic stress, however, leads to imbalance in our minds and bodies, with a potentially devastating effect on both health and feelings of well-being.

Chronic stress has a major impact on our psychological and physical health and has been shown to play a crucial role in the development of a range of diseases and disorders. Most commonly, increased production of stress hormones and muscle Tension are linked to problems such as Insomnia, Depression, Anxiety and Panic Attacks.

Prolonged or extreme stress has even been linked to a variety of physical ailments such as Hypertension, Headaches, Arthritis, Adrenal Fatigue, weakened immune systems, Cancer, Infertility and many more. Stress can cause premature aging and a significant reduction in quality of life.

Dealing with stress the healthy way

To cope with stress, many people self-medicate by using cigarettes, alcohol and other drugs. Pharmaceutical companies and the medical profession make billions of dollars in the treatment of stress-related illnesses and through the prescription of synthetic drugs. Many people become addicted to prescription medication in an attempt to find relief from Depression, Panic Attacks, Insomnia and other stress-related disorders.

In treating the symptoms of stress and Anxiety, many psychologists use techniques aimed at progressive relaxation of all the major muscle groups in the body, which ultimately induces a state of deep relaxation and calm.

Once this state has been reached and the person is completely relaxed, Guided Imagery may be used to provide further therapeutic benefits which have far reaching effects on the person’s functioning even after the therapeutic session has ended.

Relaxation and Meditation techniques have been clinically shown to play a significant role in promoting health and relieving stress. Clinical trials even suggest that regular Meditation and relaxation can lower blood pressure and heart rate and result in a greater sense of emotional and physical well-being.

What is The Calm Within CD?

The Calm Within is especially designed for relaxation and stress release. This CD was developed by our Clinical Psychologist, Michele Carelse, in conjunction with Derick Africa, a leading South African musician.

The Calm Within is designed to promote good health using a specially developed therapeutic sound technique. A combination of therapeutic script and soothing sound induces a state of deep relaxation, effectively relieving stress and promoting inner healing.

Using exactly the same techniques employed in therapy, the listener is taken through a series of progressive relaxation steps, leading to a state of deep relaxation. Thereafter Guided Imagery is used to further enhance and expand therapeutic benefits.

The CD lasts approximately an hour and is created to provide all the benefits you would receive during an hour of relaxation therapy with a trained counselor. Regular use is extremely beneficial for both physical and emotional health and can also help to reduce dependence on prescription and other chemical methods of stress release.

Relaxing CD with Guided Imagery, Relaxation Exercises and Calming Music To:

How can The Calm Within CD help you?

The Calm Within has been specially developed to assist in the treatment of:

Apart from the therapeutic benefits outlined above, regular sessions using this therapeutic CD will teach you how to access a calm and peaceful place inside yourself - a skill that you can use at any time to calm and relax yourself, relieve Anxiety and reduce Tension.

Regular use can help to reduce the reliance on harmful methods of stress-relief such as cigarettes, alcohol and psychiatric drugs and can prevent the damaging effects of stress on your body and mind.

How has The Calm Within CD helped others?

“Stress has been a big problem for me the last few years, since I started my own business. I work long hours and every work day seems even more stressful than the last. My family was nearly at their wits end with me a few months ago as I was permanently on edge, barely eating anything and always grumpy with my husband and kids. A friend recommended your CD and I ordered it just to make her happy but it has actually been a turning point for me. Every evening I come home, kick off my shoes and listen to the calming CD. Everyone knows not to disturb me during this time and they don�t mind at all because I have become almost a different person since I started this little ritual. Afterwards I feel like I have switched off to the pressures of work and can just enjoy being with my kids and relaxing with my husband. I feel like this one CD has saved my sanity!” - Joyce Durham

“I love your Calm Within CD- when I am too busy to get to my Yoga classes (which is often), I listen to this at home and it really makes me feel human again. After listening to this CD I feel relaxed and ready to face the world with a clear head. I don�t know how I ever lived without it!” - Carine V

“We all have the ability to calm ourselves and to create a sense of stillness and peace within us. However, many of us have lost touch with that quiet and peaceful space deep inside us and instead have learned to react to perceived stress with symptoms of panic and Anxiety, feeling out of control and afraid. ‘The Calm Within’ CD has been created to provide immediate relief from the symptoms of stress and Anxiety, but also to teach you how to access your own inner peace whenever you need it, putting you back in control feeling less stressed and more confident. I have helped many many clients using exactly the same techniques as you will find on the CD. Experience for yourself what it feels like to get in touch with your own inner calm.” - Michele Carelse, Clinical Psychologist.

How do I use this CD?

Although not essential, The Calm Within is best listened to on headphones to reduce outside interferences and promote deeper and undisturbed relaxation. The CD lasts approximately one hour and should be listened to from start to finish for maximum therapeutic effect.

Make sure that you are lying or sitting comfortably in a quiet, peaceful place. Because body temperature drops slightly during deep relaxation, wear loose-fitting clothes which are warm and comfortable. Wearing of socks is recommended too.

Caution: Do not listen to this CD while driving or operating heavy machinery.

What else can I do to relieve stress?

The first step in dealing with chronic stress is to recognize your symptoms and decide to make changes to combat this negative force.

Address any factors in your lifestyle that cause you unnecessary stress and make changes where possible. If sitting in a traffic jam on your way to work is starting each day off in a negative and stressful way, arrange ways to alleviate this stress. One example could be to leave the house early, miss the traffic and spend time listening to ‘The Calm Within’ once you arrive at the office, before starting your working day.

Exercise and physical activity is one of the best ways to beat stress and Tension. Prioritize getting active in your daily life and reap the numerous rewards exercise will bring - for both your mental and physical well-being.

Manage your time effectively by prioritizing essential tasks and planning your activities and time each day.

Watch your diet - alcohol, caffeine, convenience foods high in sugar and fats and tobacco all put a strain on your body’s ability to cope with stress. Try to eat a balanced diet and include plenty of fruit, vegetables, whole grains and lean protein in order to gain optimum health for dealing with everyday stressors.

AdrenoBoost is a Herbal Remedy especially formulated to promote the health of your Adrenal Glands - which are extremely important in regulating your body’s response to stress. PureCalm Drops and MindSoothe Natural Remedies are effective, safe and healthy alternatives to prescription antidepressants and Anxiety medication.

Get enough rest and try to go to sleep and wake up at regular times everyday.

Realize that no human being is perfect- including you! Allow yourself leisure time to relax on your own or have fun with those you love.

Golden Sun Healing

November 14th, 2006

Adapted from Your Aura & Your Chakras, by Karla McLaren (Weiser Books, 1998).

The Golden Sun is a symbol used to represent the endless supply of energy you have, with which you can create any kind of life you desire. The symbol reminds you that your energy is alive, renewable, and constantly available. The Golden Sun is a beacon for the energy you’ve lost or given away to relationships or situations in your life.

The purpose of the Gold Sun Healing is to help you center and call back all your energy and attention from wherever it may be.

Envision a large, golden sun right above your aura, directly over your head. Feel the warmth of your Gold Sun, which symbolizes the limitless amount of energy you have available to you in this lifetime. Your Gold Sun contains your highest information, your healing powers, and your humor. It is also your eighth chakra. Your sun chakra contains an endless supply of energy that you can use at any time.

Ground yourself.

Make a small opening at the top of your aura, and let the energy of your Sun shine in. See or feel this warm, soothing, tingling energy fill your entire aura and cover your skin. Feel the warmth on your whole body. Let your aura and its boundary become completely gold.

Breathe in the energy of your Sun, and feel its warmth as it enters your lungs. As you breathe, see and feel your Gold Sun energy travel through your bloodstream along with the oxygen you have just inhaled. Feel your clean, present-time healing energy as it lights up your bloodstream, your muscles, your organs, and your bones. Feel your gold energy throughout your abdomen, in your hips and legs, in your arms and hands, throughout the inner layers of your skin, and in your chest, neck, face, and skull.

Breathe.

Now turn your grounding cord gold and feel the energy inside your body flow down your cord, cleansing the cord and your body and rededicating your grounding cord with present-time healing energy. Stay in your head and turn everything in your room gold–the walls, the furniture, the scene outside your window–everything. Stay in this newly golden room in your head.

Sit for a few minutes and experience your own energy. This warm, calming, tingly, wonderful energy is your own. It is constantly available at your discretion, absolutely free, and completely within your control. Feel it as it travels throughout your body, moving gently, lighting up each cell. Watch it as it moves through your aura.

Check in with your grounding cord to make sure your cord is still gold. As each portion of your body is lit up from within, old messages, pains, and stored emotions will be dislodged and fall away. When you turn your grounding cord to gold, you’ll be able to drain off a lot of old, clogged energy, so that your body can begin to flow into the present. Healing your grounding cord with Gold Sun energy also makes grounding much more efficient.

Chakra Balancing Meditation

November 5th, 2006

To balance your chakras through Meditation, simply concentrate on each chakra beginning at the base chakra. Visualize the chakra as a sphere spinning and visualize bringing white light directly into the sphere until the sphere is full of the white light… Picture the white light cleansing the sphere and removing all of the negativity within the sphere. If you can concentrate on this enough you will actually be able to feel the subtle energy field here and the vibration of this happening… . now picture a bright red light entering your chakra with vibrant red energy refilling the whole sphere until it is completely full. Now Move up to the Sacral chakra and repeat the same procedure only filling it with Orange light instead of red, and move all the way up all of the chakras in this manner filling each with their own color after cleansing… .

This is a simple Meditation, there are more complex ways of cleansing and balancing with the use of Crystals, Reiki and other healing techniques but most people notice a significant difference just after doing one of these meditations.

THE WALKING Meditation

To begin. Choose a room or an open space. Choose a beginning point and ending point. This ending point can be anywhere form 10 feet to 10 miles! Take a deep breath at the starting point. Concentrate on the here and now. At this beginning point of your mediation. With each step you take say out loud one of the things you would like to change. You may repeat your sayings more than once if you need to. Sentences like, “I deserve to be treated with respect.” or ” I have had enough procrastination” , “I am unhappy”.

Now when you reach your end point, turn around .. with each step back to the beginning point say only positive, affirmative sentences like, “I am Happy”, I am a perfect being”, ” I have all that I truly need”, etc. One positive statement for every step that you take back to the beginning. When you reach the end/beginning , take a deep breath, Breathe in gratitude, breathe out a smile. ( do this until you feel it_. IF the distance wasn’t long enough , do it again. Continue the walk until you feel physically, emotionally, and spiritually better… lighter.

You may also wish to carry a basket of stones, shells, buttons…etc. .and place each down as you walk along and pick them up on your return trip. Remember, your intentions are so very important, intend to relieve yourself of the burdens that you carry that no longer serve you for your highest good, Intend to releases, to forgive , to act, and/or to move on.

WHITE LIGHT Meditation

  1. Sit or lie comfortably.

  2. Take a deep , slow breath in and slowly exhale out. With each breath in and out, allow your body to relax more, and more, and more. Let your body sink into the chair or floor (or whatever).

3.Focus on your Crown area and allow it to open to receive the energy from this ball of white light. As you open your Crown Chakra to receive this energy you feel completely at ease , completely safe.

  1. Draw down this white light energy into your forehead, your eyes,nose,cheeks, chin.

  2. Draw down this white light energy into your throat, shoulders, elbows, wrists, to each and every finger, Feel the energy in your fingertips right now. Feel it tingle with energy and excitement.

  3. Draw down the white light energy to your chest, hips, thighs, knees, calves, ankles, into each and every toe. Feel the toes tingle as the energy fills them.

7.Picture this white light energy filling up your entire body. You are the white light energy, and you will now expand yourself. With each breath in and out expand your white light energy to outside your body. Fill up the room, the building, the neighborhood, the city, the state, the country, the world, the universe. You have expanded throughout the entire galaxy!

8.When you are ready to return , bring your energy back into the building, into your body. Allow yourself time to adjust once more to your physical form and when ready, open your eyes. wiggle your fingers and toes. Stretch both arms. overhead and take a big, deep breath in and slowly release again.. You are truly a white light being!

Meditate to Medicate

August 14th, 2006

Meditation, deep breathing, and visualisation are finally being recognised as genuine methods to aid in becoming fitter and healthier.

It is becoming clear that such techniques are not simply the preserve of monks in temples but, instead, are readily available for the everyday person who desires better health, higher energy levels, and boosted immunity.

Especially for those of us who follow an exercise regime, learning a couple of basic Meditation or deep breathing based exercises can have a huge positive impact upon recovery from training and immunity levels.

Interestingly the University of Wisconsin found the positive emotions after Meditation led to beneficial changes in brain activity and antibody responses to Flu vaccine.

This is AWESOME! It is showing that all you require for boosted immunity is patience to learn and perform some fundamental Meditation techniques.

You don’t necessarily need pills and potions. Often they are over-priced and ineffective anyway. You just need to learn a few exercises that are more internal than external. Below you will discover some common-sense points that you can apply NOW in order to benefit from Meditation where your exercise regime is concerned.

1. Rest day relaxation

Try to clear your mind and think about your training and experiences. If this is an area you want to improve (health) then quiet contemplation can be invaluable.

2. Before you train

Take five minutes to compose yourself. SEE yourself performing to the best of your abilities.

3. Keep Balanced

Yes, you can train each day. BUT intensity should be staggered. Plan your rest JUST AS carefully as your actual training.

4. Discover what works for YOU

There are no ‘one size fits all’ strategies. Learn a few Meditation techniques that you enjoy and feel yourself recovering faster, feeling calmer, and experience your immunity improving!

So, after physical training or a long day at work, remember to Meditate to medicate!

Skygazing Meditation

August 11th, 2006

Adapted from Natural Radiance, by Lama Surya Das (Sounds True, 2005).

SkyGazing is a natural meditative awareness that helps us relax, let go, and let be in the natural state of things, just as they are. We gradually release our small, narrow, egotistical, dualistic minds into the nondual, sky-like infinite Buddha-mind; we merge the finite, thinking heart-mind with the absolute, unconditional infinity of essential Buddha-like being.

SkyGazing Meditation leads us into a way of being that is in perfect harmony and oneness with nature: we become one with the open sky.

There are three stages to SkyGazing meditation:

  • Arriving
  • Intensifying
  • Allowing

Arriving Sit on the floor, on a cushion, or in a chair. Your back should be erect, but not rigid. Rest your arms on your thighs, wherever they naturally fall. Your eyes remain open for this Meditation.

Intensifying Bring your awareness to the out-breath. Do not change the rhythm or depth of your breathing–just notice how the air feels as it leaves your body. Your out-breath takes you outside of our small self and connects you with everything that is. Let the in-breath occur naturally, but without placing any special attention on it. Rest your gaze softly on your surroundings. About half of your attention should be on your breath, while the other half is aware of the sky.

Allowing Lean back slightly and raise your gaze until the sky fills your field of vision. Open your senses to the elements. As thoughts, feelings, and perceptions arise–as they inevitably will–release them gently, without judgment. Neither follow nor suppress them. Just be a flow of pure energy in the infinite vastness of space.

It is important to keep in mind that there is no way to do this Meditation “wrong.” Whatever you feel, whatever you are aware of, is simply what is. Your practice is to keep letting go of the speedy, judgmental, reactive everyday mind and return to this restful, innate awareness. If you find your mind wandering or your body tensing, stop and relax.

Take a break, take a deep breath, chant “AH” and start again-refreshed, vivid, wakeful. How long you manage to remain aware is not important: it is the quality of awareness, not the quantity that counts. There need not be a struggle involved. You can start again every moment, every second. What is important is the quality of your experience. It might take a while to get used to this, but try to relax into it and let go of ordinary ideas abut Meditation and habitual reference points.

SkyGazing means opening up and decontracting, space-mingling, dissolving in the infinite. You can practice it at any time: while resting at home, taking a break at work, or during transitions in your day.

At these times, simply gaze into the sky or any undifferentiated expanse of space–such as a ceiling, a blank wall, or a green lawn. Use this infinite panorama of emptiness as a metaphor for openness and awareness, release your fixations and preoccupations, breathe out–and simply let go into it.

Prayer Meditation

June 11th, 2006

Most people believe that you must have religious training or attend a church regularly in order to pray. The truth is anyone can pray. You can pray anywhere you like. No one needs to hear you pray except GOD or Jesus, if you believe in them.

Prayer is the best Meditation there is. Simply chanting or breathing a certain way might calm you outwardly, but inner peace comes through prayer Meditation.

So many people think all praying is like what they have heard. Children saying bless mother, grandmother, etc. Others who say lengthy prayers that seem to be formatted in some special way.

GOD doesn�t listen more to prayers that are said in some sort of format invented by holy men than he does to simple prayers issued by people who are sinners. As a matter of fact, He listens to the prayers of the sinner even more and the angels in heaven rejoice whenever a sinner asks Jesus into his heart.

Jesus didn�t come to earth to gather the righteous, he came to save the sinners. We all sin. None of us are perfect. You do not need to be perfect to use prayer and Meditate with GOD. He listens to everyone.

There is always a lot of focus on things to pray for and whether or not GOD will answer your prayers. GOD knows what is in your heart and knows what you need more than you do. Praying for a Ferrari and not getting one does not mean GOD isn�t listening to you or answering your prayers.

Ask for things that will help you achieve the purpose that GOD has for you. Ask GOD to guide you and let you know what that purpose is. Ask GOD for wisdom. Ask Him to fill you with the Holy Spirit so that you will know the things to ask for.

You do not need to go to a special location to use prayer Meditation. You simply need to make time for GOD in your life. Even those of you who go to church need to do this. Not only on Sunday morning, either. Who are you to say how much time you are willing to give GOD, who gave you the time you now have in the first place?

Going to church is a good thing, but setting time aside to pray and Meditate alone with GOD is even more important. You can do it at home or anywhere you choose. You can choose a special place that helps you be calm and in a meditative mood.

I like to turn off all the lights and play worship music for awhile. As I listen to the music, I focus on ridding my mind of all things worldly. I attempt to not think about my work, things I need to do, things that bother me, people who irritate me, or anything else that might distract me during Meditation.

Once I have achieved that calmness, (you will know), then I begin to pray. I ask GOD to fill me with the Holy Spirit, reaffirm my love and belief in GOD and Jesus Christ, and ask GOD to reveal to me the things I should pray for.

This works. Ask and ye shall receive does not mean you get the Ferrari. It means you can gain the wisdom to know your true purpose on this earth, something that most people, even Christians, do not know.

When you know what GOD wants you to do, then pray and Meditate for the things you need to achieve those goals, you will see your prayers answered quickly. You cannot just believe in GOD, you have to believe GOD will provide those things you need.

Believe those prayers will be answered. Meditate and envision those things being given to you, those doors opening for you, that life you want being given to you.

Getting your prayers answered through prayer Meditation is the easy part. It is what you do after you receive your gifts from GOD that is difficult. You must openly and proudly give GOD all the glory for the things He has helped you to accomplish.

Give credit where credit is due. We all like to proclaim how smart we are or how good we are and we like people to think that is why we prosper. We want them to think we are special. It is much better for you to let them know that all that you have and all that you achieve is because GOD gave it to you for believing in Him.

However you choose to Meditate before GOD, I advise you to start soon. The sooner you start, the sooner you will learn how to talk with GOD and the sooner He can give you all the things He wants you to have.

Remember to do this alone. Remember to rid your mind of all things that are of this world and focus on GOD. Remember that he listens to everyone who will set this time aside in His Name. You will find also that the more glory you give to GOD for all He has done for you, the more He will continue to do for you.

This article is not intended to offend anyone�s chosen religious preferences. I wrote the truth as I know the truth to be. I hope you will come to know the same truth or at the very least some parts of this article reach you and teach you how to pray.

Reiki Meditation -To Bring the Mind Home

May 29th, 2006

Today we generally waste our life in endless activity, struggle, aggressive competition and achievement. Meditation is the exact opposite. To Meditate is to make a complete break with how we normally operate, it is a state free of all cares and concerns.

The heart of Meditation

In the stillness of Meditation, we return to that inner nature that we have so long ago lost in the busy and chaotic distractions our mind is subjected to each day. The heart of Meditation is to bring the mind home, release and relax.

  • To bring the mind home - means to turn your mind inward and to rest in the nature of mind.

  • To release - means to release mind from its prison of grasping, since you recognize that all pain, fear and distress arise from the craving of the grasping mind.

  • To relax - means to relax your mind into your true nature, letting all thoughts and emotions naturally subside and dissolve into the state of the nature of mind.

Meditation in a nutshell

I don’t think it is possible to relate what Meditation is in a nut shell but here is my feeble try: “Quietly sitting, body still, speech silent, mind at peace, let thoughts and emotions, whatever rises, come and go, not clinging to anything”.

A Reiki Meditation

Strictly speaking I am not sure this can be called a Meditation but I cannot think of a better name so I will still refer to it as a Reiki Meditation.

There are many types of meditations the three methods that seems most effective in the Western world are watching the breath, using an object and reciting a mantra. In this simple Reiki Meditation one could say one uses the last two: object in the Reiki symbols and mantra in the names of the Reiki symbols.

This is a very forceful and effective Meditation that gives relaxation, mental calmness, Clarity, increased ability to visualize, clairvoyance, increased healing power and a wider conciousness. It can also be used to solve problems or reach goals and it surrounds you with healing Reiki energy.

Here is how to do it:

  1. Sit comfortably, either on a cushion with legs folded or on a straight back chair. Keep your spine erect (without force). If you are sitting on a chair do not lean back. Rub your hand together and put your hands on your knees or on another place comfortable for you.
  2. Relax and breath slowly, think about Reiki.
  3. Draw the Power symbol in front of you with your whole hand. Visualize how a white or Violet light comes out trough your fingers as you draw the symbol in the air in front of you.
  4. Visualize the symbol in the third eye chakra an recite its name three times. Keep the symbol steadily in your third eye.
  5. When you feel that you have meditated enough on this symbol let it float up into a field of light above your head. Return your consciousness to the third eye chakra.
  6. Repeat steps 3 to 5 with the Mental/Emotional symbol and the Distance symbol.
  7. When you are finished Meditating on the three symbols you will be concentrated and full of healing Reiki energy. You can now continue with the final part of the Meditation where you can send Reiki to your projects, goals or healing others at a distance.
  8. Send Reiki by visualizing or describing the object, goals or person. You can use the method you have learned or the one you feel is most suitable to you.
  9. When finished, slowly relax and release all thoughts. Sit quietly for a few minutes and enjoy the peace.
  10. Rub your hands together and “wash” your face with them. Open your eyes, walk a few steps and feel how refreshed you are.

Here are a few tips:

Make sure you have a quiet and undisturbed place. I will once again stress that you should keep your back straight to receive the most benefit from any Meditation. At step 2 you can ask for help from your Reiki guides and thank them when you are finished. Practice seeing the symbols in front of you, this helps whenever you use Reiki.

Try it and see if you like it - have fun!

Program Your DNA For Optimal Health

May 25th, 2006

Many of us have assumed that our DNA is something that is fixed and that we do not have the power to change it in any way. But a recent study by the Institute of HeartMath* has revealed some astounding results that run counter to this assumption.

In the study, research subjects attempted to influence DNA from human Placenta that had been isolated in sealed test tubes.** Their objective was to get the two strands that comprise human DNA to wind tighter or to unwind. Amazing as it sounds, in a statistically significant number of cases, the DNA did just what the research subjects wanted it to do.

How were these individuals able to successfully affect the behavior of DNA in a test tube? There were two necessary components:

The first was the presence of heart-centered feelings of love and appreciation on the part of the research subjects. When those feelings were absent, the DNA exhibited no apparent changes. But just TWO MINUTES of positive, heart-felt emotions directed towards the DNA was often enough to solicit the desired response.

The second important component was a clear intention on the part of the research subject for the change that he or she wanted in the DNA (winding tighter or unwinding.) Where research subjects did not hold a specific intention, no change was observed on the part of the DNA. This was true even when the research participant held positive emotions.

Incidentally, it also didn�t matter if the sealed test tube of DNA was placed in a glass beaker that the research participant could hold in his or her hands, or if the test tube of DNA was located a half mile away. In each case, the results were the same.

Just think. . . .if we can affect change in someone else�s DNA in a test tube located a half-mile away, imagine what we can do with our own DNA by pairing positive emotions and the intention for attaining and maintaining optimal health!

Here is a visualization for programming your own DNA to create a healthy, happy, vibrant body!

  1. Find a comfortable position for your body, close your eyes, and begin to take slow, deep, relaxing breaths. Breathe into your heart. Focus on awakening deep love and compassion with every breath.

  2. Feel gratitude for your body�the magnificent temple of your spirit. Your body is miraculous. It naturally strives to keep you in a state of perfect balance in every moment. Appreciate everything your body does for you. Appreciate your senses, and the joy they bring. Appreciate all of your cells for working in harmony with one another for your highest good.

  3. Imagine that your heart is like a beautiful sun, beaming rays of love and light to every part of your body. Bask in the wonderful feeling of well being, as you sense this heartlight saturating the DNA in each cell.

  4. Conjure an image that represents your intention for your body. For example, experience yourself doing something physical that invigorates and revitalizes you. Imagine yourself as strong, youthful, flexible, confident, healthy, and vibrant. Make that image as real as possible. Have fun with it. Get excited about it.

  5. Imagine that you are communicating the image representing your intention for optimal wellness to your DNA, where it is being replicated and permanently recorded in each of your billions of cells. Affirm that any changes which occur as a result will be entirely positive and for your highest good.

  6. Come back slowly and gradually. As you go about your daily life, be sure to look for opportunities to send your body love and appreciation.

Meeting Your Dream Dolphins

May 17th, 2006

Close you eyes … relax, and allow yourself to enter a place inside where you can gain access to anything that you need. Notice your breath rising…. and …. falling as a sense of well-being, that you can remember. Now allow it to spread over yourself so that my words can exactly fit the feeling and deepen it safely and securely.

Notice your breath rising …. and …. falling …. as you imagine ocean waves rising …. and …. falling …. rolling effortlessly into shore as they become smaller and smaller …. then …. breaking …. dreaming …. your thoughts drifting …. now …. back into that space of all knowing …. listen to the ocean in your ears …. like the sea in a seashell traveling a spiral into a center of silence.

And there you can discover something of the utmost importance to you. Right now you may not know exactly what it is, but somewhere inside you do and all you need to know now is that you can just relax and travel that special spiral.

As you dream yourself on a vast ocean on a bright sunny day, floating …. up …. than …. down …. with ease …. warmly drifting …. on an inner ocean of your own cerebrospinal.

Then suddenly as in slow motion a beautiful dolphin leaps into the air from your right side, transverses an arch over your body, and enters the water on the left side while simultaneously another dolphin leaps into the air from your left side and transverses an arch over your body, and enters the water on your right side. And without thinking your body drifts gently through their arch as each dolphin spirals in the fluid. One dolphin comes to your left ear and the other to your right ear.

You feel their dolphin snouts in your ears as the dolphin on your left side sticks her dolphin tongue into your ear and begins licking while at the same time the dolphin on the right side sticks his dolphin tongue into your right ear and begins licking.

Listen!

as they tell you in dolphin language that they are from Delphi, the navel of our plant Earth. They are special messengers. They have access to the lost city of Atlantis and its vast libraries of knowledge and the Oracle of Delphi. They can swim deep into your unconsciousness through the ventricles of your brain, down your spinal column to your sacrum and back up into your “minds eye” and bring ancient knowledge..

They can swim out your frontal fontanel and rise on a rainbow to the surface of your cerebrospinal fluid and take a breath of stillpoint. And as they bring that stillpoint back to the seat of consciousness and place it into the treasure chest of your stella tursica a realization comes:

“These dolphins are my friends. I have known them all my life. They swam with me as a fetus in my mothers womb. They know me in the deepest way and have access to my creative resources. They are my dream messengers from the lost city deep in my medulla oblongata. They send sonic messages on high pitched sounds through my cerebrospinal fluid — they are my sonar — I can ask them anything and they will search my oceans and bring me the necessary jewels of knowledge I need to meet my life challenges.

Take a moment to be with your dolphins; ask them any question you want about your life and make sure that your creative self searches your life and puts together the most important question for you to make special changes that you can appreciate and that will support all of yourself and everyone around you.

So just float, enjoy the warm sun, and listen to your dolphins………..

A One Minute Meditation

May 15th, 2006

Maybe learning to Meditate intimidates you, and in any case it’s tough to find the time for daily Meditation. The solution to both problems is an easy Meditation you can learn right now, that will only take a minute to do each day.

An Easy Meditation Technique

Breathing through your mouth expands your chest, but if you breath through your nose you’ll notice how your abdomen extends. You see, nose-breathing causes the diaphram to pull air to the bottom of your lungs. This delivers a good dose of oxygen into your bloodstream and brain. It also tends to relax you.

Breathing through your nose is healthier, and it’s the basis of this one-minute Meditation. You simply close your eyes, let the Tension go out of your muscles, let go of your thoughts (to the extent possible), and take four slow, deep breaths through your nose, paying attention to your breathing.

Is Meditation This Easy?

You’re not likey to get you into a deep meditative state with this simple exercise. You will get benefits, though. These will almost certainly include a clearer mind and a reduction in stress.

Try to develop a “trigger” for your Meditation. You can do your four breaths when you get into the car, for example, or right after lunch each day. A trigger is a place or time that reminds you, so your Meditation becomes a habit.

Some may say this isn’t “real” Meditation, but there’s nothing wrong with enjoying the relaxation you’ll get from this technique. You can always pursue deeper Meditation later, if you wish. In the meantime, remember that not everything has to be difficult to be of value. Why not do an easy one-minute Meditation right now?
