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.

Meditation – My Healing Experience

I have been meditating for over forty years and in the beginning it was fairly simple straightforward visualization sometimes to music or focus on an object.  Since then meditation has grown in acceptance and the availability to various types of meditation has also grown.  These days I have found that the best variety of meditation videos are on YouTube.com I subscribe to meditative Mind because their videos are unique and combine frequency, music, and color.  I believe that the frequency (Hz) is important because it gets down to the DNA Level of healing.  Before sound it more up to the person to visualize the movement of energy down to the DNA level.

Because we are a Reiki Level II Practitioner we found YouTube.com has some great Reiki Chakra clearing videos which include detail descriptions of each of the Chakra’s as the video plays.  We meditate on the chakra’s fifty percent of the time mainly because we have the experience of self-healing a five years ago when a question came up as to whether we would need Chemotherapy or not. I add two CT Scans and they saw nodules in my lungs small at first and then a little larger on the second scan. So they decided to wait three months and take another scan to decide the direction we need to go.  My doctor explained that after smoking for 50+ years this was common and that we should probably do some research on Chemo because he was leaning toward that as the result, not guaranteed, but strong possibility.  Form that day forward we did a Reiki meditation and prayed every night (3 months) until the day of the scan. I had the CT scan and the very next day my doctor called and I had to sit down to answer the call. I pick up the phone and the first this I heard was my doctor saying “You can fire me! You don’t need me anymore!”. I said “What!?” and he said “The nodules are all so small and some are gone since the last scan”.  He admitted that he was complete surprised but added that I had a 2% chance of this being the outcome.  After we finished dancing around our chair in total joy we now go for a check up every year and the results remain the same to this day.

Another instance was back in the late 80’s to the mid 90’s we had a several case of Panic Anxiety and were put on strong medication and we made up our minds that is was not going to be the norm for us and eventually we because medication free and we believe it was because we meditated every day for the last three years.

One other use of mindfulness meditation is on my post about quitting smoking. We use the meditation to get past the urges to smoke a cigarette and every time after that when the same situation came up the urge was gone.

We would strongly suggest learning Mindfulness Meditation  and we did at the Insight Meditation Center in Redwood City, CA. They teach based on Buddhism and it applies to mind, physical, and spiritual is every day use. They also have all their teachings in audio on their website at no charge.  Here is the link “Insight Meditation Center” the go to Audio Dhama.  There are some hospitals around the country that have Mindfulness Meditation courses available for a fee and Google has a free an on-line course and they actually have a Mindfulness Guru on staff (I want this job).

We feel so strongly about the importance of meditation that every Wednesday we are going to post a link to our favorite meditation.  Here is the link for this weeks choice:

All 7 Chakras Healing Meditation Music

We have nothing else to add at this time except that we share via “messages” the link to our fiends.
