There are a lot of misconceptions about meditation. I’ve listed some I’ve come across teaching Vedic Meditation:

Misconception: I can meditate once a week to experience a shift in consciousness...

 

 

 

Meditation


by Tom Pinkson, PhD

Many years ago I was fortunate to have a visionary experience that serves as a guiding light as I move through my late sixties with seventy just around the bend. Sitting in silent meditation, eyes closed, I noticed soft rainbow lights beginning to flash on and off beneath my eyelids.  I watched them dance and dart until suddenly they coalesced into the image of a beating heart. I knew immediately that it was my heart...

 

Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan:  I love the title of Tom Pinkson's book, Fruitful Aging. It reminds me life bears fruit throughout our lives. Knowing that Tom has pursued a life of service, deeply rooted in the Shamanic tradition, I was thrilled when he agreed to provide ATH with an article on the inspiration behind his book and the wisdom gained from his open, honoring approach to life.

 

Shamanism


by Paula Davis-Laack, JD, MAPP

How happy are you and why? This is a question I spend a fair amount of time thinking about, not only as it applies to my own levels of happiness, but also as it applies to my family, friends, and the people who I work with. Since graduating with my master's degree in positive psychology, I've worked with and observed thousands of people in a wide variety of settings, and happy people just flow with the groove of life in a unique way. Here is what they do differently...

 

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: My favorite line in this article... happy people "embrace the suck." That's what meditation helps you do and, of course, why it is part of my arsenal of peace.

In my last article, Inviting Health: Using Our Minds to Set the Stage for Well-Being (Part One), I began addressing a question about meditation practices that enhance the healing process. In it, I introduced an exercise using guided meditation and visual imagery to enlist a single healthy cell in our bodies to help us entrain or coach other cells how to perform in a healthy way. This post offers another means of doing the same, with the focus being on the heart as an organ of entrainment. Here is my version of the guided meditation...


Meditation


by John C. Bader

Modern science advocates that the subconscious brain is capable of processing some 20,000,000 environmental stimuli per second, compared to the conscious brain, which may struggle with as few as 40 processes per second. One could believe it is this incredible processing power of the subconscious mind that explains why people experience good results from techniques such as “positive thinking”, meditation and or prayer...

 

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: John, I just dig this article. Thank you for letting us include it here on AllThings. I work with energy and this adds more umppphh to the reality of what I do and the work of many, many others. And, it showcases the tremendous, as you call it "burden," that we carry to live and love well. So, readers... are you up for the call to watch your thoughts with clarity and vision... with depth, vitality and courage AND excitement??!!

Q. In your post, “Mind/Body/Spirit: The Meditation Connection”, you spoke about how meditation helps us integrate the various parts of ourselves and said, “What could be a better basis for physical and mental health?” Can you talk more about practices that enhance the healing process and lay the foundation for health?...

Meditation


by Ian Lawton

Have you ever been surprised by a stray sun flower? Where did it come from? In among the invasive weeds and carefully planned flowers, this long stemmed miracle lights up the garden with its wide faced grin. They all come from somewhere–the weeds, the flowers, and the sunflower. Whether it is a stray seed blowing in the wind, a child’s fallen apple seed or the after effects of a spring time floral flurry, they all came from seed and to seed they shall return...

 

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: Ian! I frigin love the simplicity of this line, "Thoughts are to awareness, as the sunflower is to the sun. One shines, the other follows." Read on...
