Secrets of Meditation

Five years ago, I had reached a pivatol point in my life.  I had let my life get out of control and I was sucked into a vortex of unhappiness.  My stress levels had gotten to epic proportions and I began to show physical symptoms of anxiety and stress and became very ill with a heart condition.  How had I let things get that far?

I didn’t have proper coping skills in my toolbox of life.  I had not set adequate boundaries. The list goes on and on.  I don’t know if you have ever been in a position like that in your life.  I had to decide to change or die.  I embarked on a quest for answers in my life.  I had also started a journey to discover wellness. 

I didn’t know much about meditation.  I felt guided to check into it.  The only thing I knew about meditation is that hippies in the 1970s meditated.  A town close by had been formed for the purpose of bringing people together that to do Transcendental Meditation.  That was the end of my knowledge of meditation.  As luck or destiny would have it, one of my sisters who took care of me when I was ill, told me she meditated.  That was enough for me.  I was going to research this. 

I stumbled across a gentleman by the name of Matt Clarkson.  He has a site called Secrets of Mediation.  I took his free course which I highly recommend.  It got me started.  His meditations helped me with my stress management and were very calming for me.  I love his British accent and his soothing voice.  I can’t say that I have become a mediation junky and moved to Fairfield, Iowa, but it definitely put me in touch with the inner me and I began the journey to wellness with meditation as one of the tools I use.

I continue to use meditation.  I use it to solve problems, re-energize, visualize, get in touch with my creative self and relax. I can’t say enough about it.  I feel that it was instrumental to my full recovery. 

I have an article from Matt about the benefits to meditation.  I encourage you to read it and if you are new to meditation, take his free course.  Whatever your level of expertise in meditation may be, definitely check out his website.  Matt has something for every level of experience in mediation. Enjoy!

“5 Little Known Secrets of Meditation, Energy and Manifestation”

Secret #1:
The True Purpose of Meditation
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 
Many people feel a sense of fascination when confronted with the
possibility of mystic visions, psychic intuition and heightened
mental functioning.  While meditators often report these sorts of
improvements, these experiences should not be the primary reason
for practice.  The purpose of meditation is to bring us back to
ourselves.
 
As we become healthier, happier and realize greater
self-awareness, the other benefits of meditation begin to follow
naturally — improved mental functioning, greater intuition as
well as greater access to unconscious resources and abilities.

Secret #2:
Distraction Does Not Equal Failure
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 
Meditation is not work in the sense that you have to “force”
yourself to concentrate completely for long periods of time.  If
we consciously try to prevent thinking, it’s going to have a
negative impact on the meditation.
 
Instead, whenever we become lost in thought or confusion, we
simply acknowledge those thoughts and then gently return the
attention to the object of the meditation.  We do this as many
times as distraction or thought occurs.  Eventually, the mind
becomes calmer and discursive thought begins to slow.

Secret #3:
Insight Alone Is Not Enough
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 
Insight alone will not transform our lives.  Meditation is likely
to help us by giving us larger perspectives and increasing
clarity of thought.  But although our sense of inner guidance
might become stronger, unless we ACT on that guidance, we will
never manifest the changes we truly want in our lives.
 
This doesn’t just mean we need to take action in our outer world,
for example, having an honest conversation with a friend or
paying a bill.
 
It also means we must actively request the assistance of the
unconscious in a clear and persistent way.  When you do that, as
I teach in “Secrets of Meditation, Energy and Manifestation,” you
find yourself magnetically drawn toward your dreams with an
irresistible impulse.

Secret #4:
Learn To Let Go
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
 
Once you have made your request, it’s important that you let go.
Don’t be concerned with HOW you’re going to get what you truly
want in your life.  Needing to know how can hamper the process of
making it manifest in the outer world.  Learn to trust your
unconscious.
 
Some changes — perhaps all of them — will happen automatically.
I have personally found that many of my destructive habits simply
dropped away with minimal conscious effort.
 
For me, this was achieved not by self-discipline and will power,
but rather a “letting go” and a realization that spiritual growth
is a natural process powered by parts of ourselves that know more
than we can understand consciously.
 
As we let go consciously and receive more input from these parts,
we learn to trust this feeling, this feeling that we are in safe
hands and that something amazing is about to happen.
