SAD_USAMy fellow Americans once again we have a terrorist coward renting a truck and mowing down innocent bicycle riders on a bike path in Manhattan.  He drove and hit them from behind like the slime of the earth he is. Eight lost their lives and dozens more injured.  The New York City Police and FBI are on it and information is dripping in slowly.  He is not from NY and the FBI is in the area where he is from.  He jumped out of the truck holding a Paint Ball Gun and BB Gun probably hoping to be shot dead, but was shot in the abdomen by an alert NY Police Person.

Our prayers and with all the victims involved in this tragic event and we know that NY is strong.

We have nothing to add at this time but will be following events on CNN.

Meditation Notes – Misc Mindfulness

Mindfulness Mediation can be broken down to two different styles that we know of.  There are probably a zillion more, but we are only going with two.

The first would be the Medical/Business, which is using the Meditation to control pain (Medical) and in business to relieve stress or clear you mind.  We have to admit using Mindfulness Meditation to control pain, once mastered, would be awesome.  We have read some articles where cancer patients have learned to control the intense pain with mediation (Scale of 1-10  20).  In business, from what we understand, Google employees have a Meditation Guru and they use the meditation to relieve stress and anxiety by breathing out the tenseness and relaxing.  This is good for the employee and boosts creativity in the work place.

The second is what we learned at The Insight Meditation Center in Redwood City, CA which is a Buddhist version for the mind, body, and spirit.  We also use this style when using Reiki Energy for healing.  Here when you are meditating and a thought comes into your mind and refuses to go away, you go deeper and determine what is causing the thought, then either work on the issue immediately or consider working on it at a later date.  An example would be you initially felt anger and when you went deep you found it came from a bullying incident when you were a child or from an event in the past.  This form of meditation is used to help yourself to clear out the crap you have collected throughout your life.  In Reiki cold energy is various part of the body is caused from specific emotions or past experiences.

So past experiences is what we are using Meditation to get rid of.  Think about it.  A a memory is an illusion.  So if you are getting angry from someone slapping you when you where a child, then you are living in an illusion. There is nothing you can do to stop the slap all these years later and the pain of the slap goes on because you are keeping it alive by thinking about it and reacting to it.  Just like when we quit smoking, when an urge from the past surfaced and we normally would go have a smoke, instead we recognized the urge, we talked to the urge by saying “You can hang around, but we choose not to smoke and will continue on by meditation.” The next time the urge came along we did not get an inkling to go have a smoke, we just noticed the urge and continued on.

So we are using meditation to move to “Live in the moment” because the past and the future are illusions and our only reality is in the now.  If you apply this to other people you will find that judgments go away. If you are judging someone based on a past experience then you are judging them on an illusion. Everything is in a state of change, in every moment, always, and in all ways so nothing is as it was.  People talk about peace of mind, or bliss, this is the way to get there.  It’s not easy, but the when you get there you will be grateful and thanks everyone you met along the way for helping you.

So here is this weeks meditation CONNECT TO THE SOURCE

We have nothing to add at this time except to thank all of you for stopping by and we send you many blessings.  Namaste

Meditation – Misc Stuff

Right off we want to say to the reader that anything we say here take with a grain of salt.  We are sharing our experience and if something we say doesn’t sit well with you then forget it or figure out a different way of doing something. For example, when we first started reading about meditation most of the “so-called experts” said to sit cross-legged, back straight, head tilted slightly done, hand in lap, and thumb and point finger touching.  This position made my back hurt after several minutes, or we would be concentrating on keeping a correct position that we could not focus.

“Our #1 suggestion – your meditation position is whatever position you feel comfortable in.”

I changed to sitting in a chair with my feet planted on the floor and my arms where they felt good, usually on my lap. My feet on the floor gave me grounding and if we were passing healing energy through our body we made sure to send some healing energy to mother earth through our Foot Chakra.  Mother Earth gets enough abuse by the inconsiderate anti-earth people she can use all the healing energy we can send. Most of the time we place my hands open on my upper legs so to complete a “circuit” of energy flow. These days we are usually sending energy throughout our body or to someone else who has asked for some Reiki Healing Energy.  If you’re not using energy then just get comfortable, even by laying down.  There are no rules, nothing is etched in stone.  If you wish to hang from a chandelier, then hang from the chandelier if that makes you comfortable.

The videos we post are to be used as assistance to your meditation.  We focus on the sound and choose to become one with the sound when fully focused. Which means the sound is effortlessly flowing though our body along with the energy we are sending.  If the video distracts you then don’t use it.  When we first started we focused on the flame of a candle, or a light down up in the sky, or just about anything that caught our eye.  Or just close your eyes, it’s as simple as that. Visualization is a big part of some meditations so closing your eyes helps in the beginning.

Now sitting there reading this take a deep breath, no so deep you pass out, but a fairly deep breath.  When you let the breath out feel the tension in your body flowing out with your breath.  Breath in positive energy and sit for a few seconds enjoying the release of tension.  Then take another deep breath and let go more tension. Feel it gushing out of your body and enjoy the feeling.  No one more and this time get ride of the tension in your shoulders on the out breath.  Yes, feel it leaving and taking what was left out of your body.  Sit an relax.  Nice huh?  So out breath goes the negative energy and the in breath is positive energy (we use love).  This is the basics of a mindfulness meditation process.  Normally breath and focus on the in-breath and out-breath.  When we say focus you choose to get to a point where that is all that is, your breath in and out.  We call this “being in the moment, nothing else exists.  The past and the future are illusions and this is our only reality.” We are deep in to our soul level and totally at peace with all there is.  Starting out you might not get deep in, but practice the breathing.  If during the breathing a thought come to mind.  Notice the thought, sit with it, because you know it will pass shortly as most thoughts do, and when it passes continue breathing.  If it does not pass, what we do is talk to it.  Yes we talk to the thought basically to recognize it or some might say to honor it.  Our purpose is determine why it is visiting us and just about every-time once we determine why it moves on and does not come back.

This is how we handled all the urges to smoke when we quit smoking.  The thought was an urge to smoke based on a certain event, and we basically greeted the urge and said to the urge “We usually go smoke a cigarette when you come along but today we are going to continue our breathing meditation.  You are welcome to hang around, but we will not pay any attention to you.”  After a few seconds the urge would pass and the next time the same event that triggered the urge came along we did not get the urge to smoke.   (It’s been 4 years and 10 months since our last cigarette)  See out quit smoking post for more.

This is all for today and we urge you all out there in cyber-land to practice every chance you get.  If you are driving be sure not to close your eyes, but you can still breath and when the police pull you over for swerving and have to take the DUI sobriety test, you can laugh at yourself BUT be sure to stay in the moment.

We hope all of you get something out of what we reported and we will be setting up our email soon so we can take questions or comments.  Love, Light, and Peace to all of you along with many blessings.

We have nothing else right now so “PEACE”.

Meditation – Week 2 – My Experience Continued

We had a great response to week one, and the most asked questions was “Why meditate?”  So because we can only give you our perspective and our experience, we are going to include each week a part of the history of our journey, which includes other teachings, but the common thread is meditation.

A long, long, time ago in a land far, far away was a book store named The Lighthouse located in Crown Point, Indiana. The owners name was Heather Harder and on Friday nights after hours Heather opened the store to a group of folks interested in metaphysical discussions and demonstrations.  We remember this because of two bits of advice from Heater that we alway follow to this day and they are , “#1 No matter what metaphysical path you  choose to follow, always have fun with it.” and “#2 When you start gathering information from books, people, etc. take what you feel is good for you and disregard all the other stuff”.  The Friday night meeting was where my interest in meditation began, and having the opportunity to investigate Native American Drum sessions,  Circle Healing, Inter-dimensional Travel, Reiki Healing, Astrology (A current hobby), Astral Travel, and several other forms of metaphysical practices was awesome.

From then on we collected all kinds of various types of meditations mainly from reading.  We started to practice meditation mainly for relaxation but also to grow spiritually. We used meditation to clear negative energies, and when removing the negative energy fill up with positive energy. I can’t think of a better way to get rid of “stress”, mainly because we believe the person who brings on the stress can get rid of the stress easy.

When the panic anxiety attaches started instead of embracing the opportunity to get past it, we fought it in every-way we could think of finally settling on medication. We dumped the stuff we had learned and fought it for several years and then only day “out of the blue’ we started reading a book named “Many Lives, Many Masters.” by Brian L. Weiss M.D.  Looking back from today we know this book was sent to wake us up to continue our path and it did because we started meditation again and after a few years we were completely off the medication.

To be continued…

One point we want to make is the main use of meditation is to get to a point where you mind is clear of all thoughts.  Enjoy it and choose to take this clearing to every moment of your everyday life.  Why?  Because if you are clear and something comes your way that you are looking for you will see it without all the daily noise zipping through your noggin.

This weeks meditation is great for bringing peace to your spirit

We have nothing to add except that we are praying for all the Los Vegas victims and their families.
