Meditative Practices, 10 Reasons Why You Should have one.

Stress Less: In this day and age, stress is one of the number one complaints that people have. But stress is not just a daily annoyance; it is a real problem that can have serious—even deadly—consequences on your health. You may have heard the expression “Stress Kills,” and it is an unfortunate truth. Stress hormones take a tremendous toll on your body. Luckily mindfulness has been scientifically proven to reduce stress and increase mental and physical health.

Improve Mental Focus: Does it ever feel like you just can’t turn off your brain? We all have mental chatter that can distract us when we need to focus on work, school, or other important activities. Meditative practices are specially designed to train your mind to focus when you need it to, which will help you to direct your train of thought in the right direction.

Connect With Your Loved Ones: It might seem counterintuitive that internal practices of mindfulness and self-awareness could help you to connect to someone outside of yourself, but they can do just that because they allow you to get in touch with yourself through mental focus and attention. This translates into interpersonal relationships, and over time, you will find that it will become easier give your loved ones your full, undivided attention.

Reduce Pain: Pain is something that we all have to deal with from time to time. But dealing with chronic mental or physical pain can leave you exhausted on all levels—mentally, physically, and emotionally. Mindfulness can enable you to change your relationship to the pain you are experiencing and free up mental energy for the life you want to lead.

Sleep Better: Getting the sleep your body needs can improve your mental and physical health. Inadequate sleep leaves you in a state of constant fatigue, and insomnia can exacerbate this problem, creating a vicious cycle that can be hard to escape. Meditative practices can be a solution, as they give you the tools you need to get restful, restorative sleep each and every night. These techniques can also help you fight insomnia so that you can fall asleep quickly and break the cycle of exhaustion.

Lose Weight: It may sound too good to be true, but let me explain. Meditation can actually help you to lose weight and keep it off. This is because, as previously discussed, meditative practices reduce stress and improve sleep, and both stress and fatigue can cause weight gain and difficulty controlling appetite. In addition, mindfulness and visualizations can empower you to finally reach your ideal weight and increase your physical stamina.

Achieve Your Goals: Weight loss isn’t the only goal that meditation can assist you in attaining. Whether your goals are personal or professional, visualization is a powerful tool that can increase your motivation and drive to succeed. When you have this mental toolbox in place, you will find that you have a nearly unlimited capacity for success, as your daily practice consistently renews your motivation to achieve.

Increase Self-Confidence: Have you ever watched someone who conducted themselves with such poise that they could gain the attention of everyone in the room with only their self. Meditation can actually work to help you begin to be perceived as confident and in control. Your newfound mental composure can enable you to be assertive, make new connections with ease, and feel good about the decisions you make.

Be Inspired: It’s no secret that our innate creativity is often blocked from within our own minds. For example, for a writer, this can take the form of what’s commonly known as writer’s block. In fact, nearly everyone has experienced this frustrating lack of inspiration. Mindfulness is a great way to remove our own mental blockages and tap into the creativity naturally flowing within us in order to achieve great things, whether in science, art, or another field.

Find Peace: Along with the mental clarity you gain from your mindfulness practice, you will find that you attain a state of inner peace and calm. You will gain perspective about what is most important to you, and gratitude will begin to flow through your life as you recognize the incredible opportunities you do have, in spite of any setbacks. Mindfulness brings your awareness to the richness of everything that life has to offer.

Ambition and Type


¶ Now what is it that causes some to have ambition and others to lack it?

Your ambitions take the form determined by your predominating physiological system. For instance, in every great singer the Thoracic has been present either as the first or second element.

The effect of the physical upon our talents is no more marked anywhere than here. For it is his unusual lung power, his high chest, the sounding boards in his nose section and his superior vocal cords that make the real foundation of every singer’s fame. These physiological conditions are found in extreme degree only in persons of thoracic tendencies.

It was the great lung-power of Caruso that made him a great singer. It was his remarkable heart-power that brought him through an illness in February, 1921, when every newspaper in the world carried on its front page the positive statement that he could not live another day. That he lived for six months afterward was due chiefly to his remarkable heart.

The nature resulting from a large heart and large lungs is one distinctly different from all others—in short, the Thoracic nature.

“The Best Dressed
¶ The best dressed man and the best dressed woman in your town belong predominantly to this type. This is no accident. The Thoracics, being possessed of acute eye senses, are more sensitive to color and line than any other type. These are the foundations of “style” and artistic grooming.

Clothes Can Unmake the Man
¶ Being desirous of the approval of others and realizing that though clothes do not make the man they can unmake him, this type looks to his laurels on this point.

Because clothes determine the first impressions we make upon strangers and because that impression is difficult to change, clothes are of vast importance in this maze of human relationships.

The Thoracic is more sensitive to the attitude of others because their attitude is more vital to his self-expression. He senses from childhood the bearing that clothes have for or against him in the opinion of others and how they can aid him to express his personality.”

“The Glass of Fashion
¶ The Thoracic therefore often becomes “the glass of fashion and the mold of form.” His consciousness of himself is so keen that, even when alone, he prefers those things in dress which are at once fine, fancy and fashionable.

Some types are indifferent to clothes, some ignorant of clothes and some defiant in their clothes but the Thoracic always has a keen sense of fitness in the matter of apparel.

Distinction in Dress
¶ The distinctive dresser is one who essays the extremely fashionable, the “last moment” touch. He is always a step or two ahead of the times. His ties, handbags, handkerchiefs and stick pins are “up to the minute.” Such a man or woman invariably has a large thoracic development and is well repaid by the public for his pains.

Dress the Universal Language
¶ The public looks more eagerly than we suppose to changes in styles and fads. It gives, in spite of itself, instantaneous admiration of a sort to those who follow the dictates of fashion. This being one of the quickest roads to adulation, it is often utilized by this type.”

“The Newest in Hairdressing
¶ The latest thing in coiffures is always known by the Thoracic woman. And because she is, more often than any other type, a beautiful woman she can wear her hair in almost any style and find it becoming.

So when puffs were the thing this type of woman not only wore puffs but the most extreme and numerous puffs. When the “sticking-to-the-face” style was in vogue she bought much bandoline and essayed the sleekest and shiniest head of all. When the ear-bun raged she changed those same paper-like curls over night into veritable young sofa cushions.”

“Always on “Dress Parade”
¶ With intent to keep the spotlight on himself the Thoracic is always on dress parade. He is vividly aware of himself; he knows what kind of picture he is making. He is seldom “self-conscious,” in the sense of being timid. When he does happen to be timid he suffers, by reason of his greater desire for approval, more acutely than any other type.”

Enthusiasm and Self Expression whilst succeeding at what we like


¶ No person achieves success or happiness when compelled to do what he naturally dislikes to do. Since these likes and dislikes stay with him to the grave, one of the biggest modern problems is that of helping men and women to discover and to capitalize their inborn traits.

Enthusiasm and Self-Expression
¶ Every individual does best those things which permit him to act in accordance with his natural bents. This explains why we like best those things we do best. It takes real enthusiasm to make a success of any undertaking for nothing less than enthusiasm can turn on a full current.

We struggle from the cradle to the grave for self-expression and everything that pushes us in a direction opposed to our natural tendencies is done half-heartedly, inefficiently and disgruntledly. These are the steps that lead straight to failure. Yet failure can be avoided and success approximated by every normal person if he will take the same precaution with his own machinery that he takes with his automobile.”

“Learn to Drive Your Car
¶ If you were presented with a car by your ancestors—which is precisely what happened to you at birth—you would not let an hour go by without finding out what make or type of car it was. Before a week elapsed you would have taken the time, labor and interest to learn how to run it,—not merely any old way, but the best way for that particular make of car.

Five Makes of Human Cars
¶ There are five makes or types of human cars, differing as definitely in size, shape and structure as Fords differ from Pierce-Arrows. Each human type differs as widely in its capacities, possibilities and aptitudes as a Ford differs from a Pierce-Arrow. Like the Ford or Pierce the externals indicate these functional differences with unfailing accuracy. Furthermore just as a Ford never changes into a Pierce nor a Pierce into a Ford, a human being never changes his type. He may modify it, train it, polish it or control it somewhat, but he will never change it.

“Can Not Be Deceived
¶ The student of Human Analysis cannot be deceived as to the type of any individual any more than you can be deceived about the make of a car.

One may “doll up” a Ford to his heart’s content—remove the hood and top and put on custom-made substitutes—it is still a Ford, always will be a Ford and you can always detect that it is a Ford. It will do valuable, necessary things but only those things it was designed to do and in its own particular manner; nor could a Pierce act like a Ford.

Are You a Ford or a Pierce?
¶ So it is with human cars. Maybe you have been awed by the jewels and clothes with which many human Fords disguise themselves. The chances are that you have overlooked a dozen Pierces this week because their paint was rusty. Perchance you are a Pierce yourself, drawing a Ford salary because you don’t know you are a high-powered machine capable of making ten times the speed you have been making on your highway of life.”

“Superficialities Sway Us
¶ If so your mistake is only natural. The world classifies human beings according to their superficialities. To the world a human motorcycle can pass for a Rolls-Royce any day if sufficiently camouflaged with diamonds, curls, French heels and plucked eyebrows.

Bicycles in Congress
¶ In the same manner many a bicycle in human form gets elected to Congress because he plays his machinery for all it is worth and gets a hundred per cent service out of it. Every such person learned early in life what kind of car he was and capitalized its natural tendencies.

Don’T Judge by Veneer
¶ Nothing is more unsafe than to attempt to judge the actual natures of people by their clothes, houses, religious faith, political affiliations, prejudices, dialect, etiquette or customs. These are only the veneer laid on by upbringing, teachers, preachers, traditions and other forces of suggestion, and it is a veneer so thin that trifles scratch it off.”

Your Self Esteem and You

img_2428Know that if you do not know that your boundaries are different from others, then your self esteem might be at stake. You stand on the foundation of your boundaries. It supports your decisions, your willingness to do things, and all of your relationships, including the one you have with You.

Differentiation is the willingness to act different from your “tribe” members. That being said, the way you think, feel, act, all has to be different. You are not a follower, you are yourself. You must have boundaries and you must have healthy boundaries. Healthy boundaries are your personal indicator that you are differentiating yourself.

How did you learn that you were you? That wonderful, playful, spontaneous, joyful, creative and energetic person that you are or were as a child. You were not a mini version of someone else, you were not being compared to someone else and you were not unique in a way that others cultivated or insisted upon it.

You wanted to flourish based on your own thoughts and your own feelings and perceptions. Whatever you must have experienced , you must have considered it to be normal, because it was all that you knew. You are free to see things now as they really are.

Perhaps, you were raised in a family, that has rigid boundaries. This was the case if people barely felt how they actually feel. They focused more on what others thought of themselves. This type of family dynamic will say that they are close when they are far from it.

Perhaps you were raised in a family with chaotic or diffused boundaries. In this type of environment, decisions are based on feelings and not facts. Even when the facts would or could have been helpful for the family dynamic.  This high of intensity means that children at a young age do not tend to think, feel and act for themselves.

Perhaps you were abandoned, threatened with abandonment.  You may have been neglected somehow. Perhaps, you were not comfortable with reassurance when you needed it. You might have felt overwhelmed. You deserved to be comforted , reassured and often reminded how precious you were at a young age. You might have had a hard time finding who you were if you felt this way very young, feeling not wanted.

Now, forgive yourself.

Inner Peace & Tranquility / The Chakras and What They Do. From Top To Bottom

 

As you probably know energy affects you more than you realize. Science has proven that everything in our universe is made of the same energy. But, How does it apply to me? Remember a time when you spoke to someone or encountered something or someone who was angry , stressed, anxious, or in a bad mood? what happened after? Chances are you began to feel it, maybe in your stomach, your heart or your head. It affected you somehow, it does not begin to stop there.

Sometimes you will begin to carry that energy throughout your day, and it ends up affecting everything you do. It will also begin to affect everyone you encounter. You bring it from one direction to the next, you might bring it home. It has a ripple effect and that it just one tiny example. Know that even a complete stranger can affect your life through just energy alone.

There is also a lucky and unlucky phenomenon where if you have ever had a lucky day, one where everything went right. One after another? Almost as if the stars were lined up and conspiring in your favor?

Have you ever had a bad day, where everything just went wrong and it just kept on piling up. All you wanted was to curl into a ball and hide from the world? It is not a coincidence that when these things begin to happen they are controlled by your energy circuits.

Your energy is more power than your thoughts and your emotions. The invisible thing that controls your mood is your energy. It controls everything. It is the one thing that most people do not focus on because they do not see it with their naked eye! Have you ever heard the saying (“Out of Sight, Out of Mind”)

When your energy and person vibration is high, most obstacles and challenges do not even appear , you begin to skip them. The ones that do appear, you are just able to handle them- maybe magically?

When your energy and personal vibration is low- then the pandoras box of negativity, fear, and unwanted scenarios come flooding into your life- and even the “smallest things” tend to bother you!

img_2651

Going through dark times is terrible, you need to know how to get rid of these limiting beliefs, emotions and actions that are dragging you down.  Within minutes you can become aware of mastering your energy fields. Your logical mind begins catching up with your negative thinking and thats what makes you aware of this and you feel much better afterward, However; you must be aware!!

When Everything flows, When chosen the right vibration and energy for myself for others, miracles being to happen several times a day! If you are dealing with this and you ask for signs, you will end up receiving the higher frequencies of self love and abundance. Sometimes when your in the right frequencies , what you desire the most finds its way to you effortlessly.

You have the physical body and you also have the energetic body and its a complex system. The energetic system is vast and extremely complex. Here are some of the basic  ones to remember for now. In our physical body we have physical organs. You have energetic organs which are known as chakras. Chakras affect you more than you know. They affect your emotions, mood, experiences, health and well being finances and relationships.

For physical bodies there are energetic toxins. Energetic toxins can come through internally or externally. We have physical skin, we also have energetic skin. Energetic skin would be the aura. Aura, depending on how sensitive you are, absorbs what it comes in contact with , just like our skin would.

We then have physical senses= 8 spiritual & energetic senses. This is like our five senses. ( sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch.) Our energetic senses help us make sense and decipher the invisible energy. Most of the biggest pain and struggle people experience is because they do not know how to take care of their energetic bodies.

Every painful and traumatic experience you have ever had since you were a child had a tremendous impact on you and its still affecting you and holding you back. It is a compounding affect. When you have energy that is stuck, your problems will keep reoccurring over and over again , and you wont be able to fully move forward regardless of how hard you are trying. If you have energy blocks in your system, there is an energetic blue print, to keep you from moving forward.

img_2415

Heres how it occurs, the painful experience will happen and the energy from that initially gets stored in your energetic body. Then the initial energy that was stored in your body from these painful experiences eventually turn into energetic patterns.

These energetic patterns keep you stuck, and cause you to keep re-experiencing the same problem over and over and over again. Unless you are able to remove the deeply – rooted energetic blocks that are stuck in your body. ( Sometimes on a deep cellular level ), You will be stuck where you are, and you wont be able to fully move forward.

Energy can get trapped, in auric fields, from day to day living, in chakras- from your own pain or from trauma others inflict upon you. In the actual organs, from internal to external sources. In karmic and energetic timelines. In DNA and Cellular levels – passed on from ancestors and generational trauma.

Lets use chakras as an example, its one of the hidden energetic systems that flows within our bodies and affects everything in our lives from our careers to relationships to inner peace.

Your crown chakra – has to do with spirituality, intuition, and purpose of work. So, if you are having issues in that area, theres most likely energetic toxins and blocks in your crown chakra.

Your third eye chakra- has to do with absorbing peoples energy, and tuning. Being able to tune into the energetic world. If you are sensitive to other peoples energies, theres most likely energetic toxins and blocks in your third eye chakra.

Your throat chakra has to do with speaking, your truth and confidence, and communication. So, if you are having communication issues, theres most likely energetic toxins and blocks in your throat chakra.

Your heart chakra- has to do with love and self love. If you have a hard time loving yourself, or you keep attracting toxic people into your life, theres most likely energetic toxins and blocks in your heart chakra.

Your solar plexus chakra- also called the power center, has to do with wisdom, self esteem, self worth and personal power. If you have a hard time standing up for yourself, or standing in your power , theres most likely energetic toxins and blocks in your solar plexus chakra.

Your root chakra- has to do with career, being grounded, and material abundance. If you have issues with money, abundance or staying grounded, theres most likely energetic toxins and blocks in your root chakra.

What it is and how it’s Possible to Live Consciously

It’s understanding that these smallest moments that we encounter will shape your path. Deliberately responding to a life note so then nearly reacting to it.

How you support yourself in challenging times. How you acquire and care for your living space, all of these small moments add up to the day that you are having.

This then therefore becomes the total of you week, your month and then your yearly activities. It all matters because it is your life!

Consciously living doesn’t arrive by chance, it doesn’t arrive because some time has passed by. It begins with the efforts and decisions you make each and every moment. This will then move you towards your empowered life.

When you begin to move out of those same patterns of behavior, that you created for yourself over and over again; you embrace your conscious choices. This is the path to your own centered belief system. Even if this path begins to turn you away from what you thought you should have been doing.

You begin to become aware of the aspects that your truth holds , which debilitate you to move forward in the right directions.

You begin developing new ways of responding to your world around you. This is expressed and aligned with the truest version of your own self.

You begin to seek new choices and new paths to self expressionism. Your mission now is to seek help and find people who will help you along this journey to express yourself.

You begin to feel comfortable with expressing who you are and you embrace that taking care of yourself is your number one priority. You now have patience and empathy for yourself.

When you are unaware of everything, it means to be living in a conditioned state that allows you to live in impulse. This is to live according to your conditioning of your past. Maybe because you haven’t switched the subconscious blue prints just yet. You begin to hide from intimacy in relationships or with friends and you are very vunerable so even if per say someone dangerous to your well being came around, you would befriend that person.

You need to embrace and love yourself , consciously living is to find the journey of discovering the best you , to value, to love and to restore your true self to the world and most importantly to yourself.

You are not free of control here, so everyone who is a control freak do not worry! It states that you are aware of its powers and practices and it gives and it releases yourself from it’s constrains.

Accepting others with sympathy and understanding , and extending these people with self respect , morale and decency.

You will do this for you , not for anyone else. How you respond to others to is to be awake and alive not that your responsibility to them is you own, that your self righteousness steps up in helping people when they are down or need a hand.

Recognize, pursue, try to develop, work hard at it, support, recommend, and value highly and hold dear the people that love you. As well as knowing that each of us seems to live a life that’s as true to our expressionist selves as we perhaps can.

Self Mastery Depends Upon Power of Concentration

  • You develop your faculties of self-mastery in proportion to the extent you succeed in developing your powers of concentration.

  • Watch the next person you see that has the reputation of being a strong character, a man of force. Watch and see what a perfect control he has over his body. Then watch just an ordinary person. Notice how he moves his eyes, arms, fingers; notice the useless expenditure of energy. These movements all break down the vital cells and lessen the person’s power in vital and nerve directions. It is just as important for you to conserve your nervous forces as it is the vital forces.

  • The mind is associated with muscle and nerve. When you steady your nerves and muscles, you steady your mind, but let your nerves get out of order and your mind will become erratic and you will not possess the power of direction, which, in other words, is concentration.
    If the heart flutters, the circulation is not regular, and when the lung action is uneven, the mind becomes unsteady and not fit for concentration. This is why controlled breathing is very important as a foundation for physical health. The secret of controlling your emotions is in controlling your breathing. Your main physiological life function is your respiratory system.

  • You must not only concentrate your mind, but also the action of the eyes, ears and fingers. Each of these contains miniature minds that are controlled by the master engineer. You will develop much quicker if you thoroughly realize this.

  • The next time you feel yourself becoming irritable, use your will and be patient. This is a very good exercise in self-control. It will help you to keep patient if you will breathe slowly and deeply. If you find you are commencing to speak fast, just control yourself and speak slowly and clearly. Keep from either raising or lowering your voice and concentrate on the fact that you are determined to keep your poise, and you will improve your power of concentration.

  • Any exercises that give you better control of the ears, fingers, eyes, feet, help you to steady your mind; when your eye is steady, your mind is steady. One of the best ways to study a person is to watch his physical movements, for, when we study his actions, we are studying his mind. Because actions are the expressions of the mind. As the mind is, so is the action. If it is uneasy, restless, erratic, unsteady, its actions are the same. When it is composed, the mind is composed. Concentration means control of the mind and body. You cannot secure control over one without the other.
    The real benefit of physical cultivation is that when you learn to control the body, you are gaining control over the mind. Always observe what you are doing with your body and you will know what is happening with your mind.
    According to the principle of correspondence, there is mental muscle just as there is physical muscle. The more you use your will, the stronger it becomes and the less effort you need to assert for the same use over time. Unlike things on the physical level, things on the mental level can be built up almost immediately depending on the mind of the user.

  • Use your mental forces so that they will grow and develop. Remember that everything you do is the result of mental action, therefore you can completely control your every action. Nothing is impossible for you.

  • Many people who seem to lack ambition have sluggish minds. They are steady, patient and seemingly have good control, but this does not say they are able to concentrate. These people are indolent, inactive, slow and listless, because they lack energy; they do not lose control because they have little force to control. They have no temper and it therefore cannot disturb them. Their actions are steady because they possess little energy. The natural person is internally strong, energetic and forceful, but his energy, force and strength, thoughts and physical movements are well under his control.
    If a person does not have energy, both mental and physical, he must develop it. If he has energy which he cannot direct and hold to a point he must learn to do so. A man may be very capable, but, unless he Wills to control his abilities, they will not do him any good.
    Energy creation and control are all purely mental. The first step is to summon up lots of energy. The second step is to focus it. Control is concentrated power.

  • The more attention you can capture from someone, the more attention you have to manipulate. The more influence you have over them.

  • The one that stands up like a man and has control over the muscles of his face and eyes always commands attention. In his conversation, he can better impress those with whom he comes in contact. He acquires a feeling of calmness and strength that causes opposition to melt away before it.

  • The more energy you can summon up within yourself, the more energy you have to direct and the more magnetic influence you have.

  • You can gain energy from external stimulus such as music, dance, martial art and video or you can gain it within from imagination and memory.
    Raising your vibrations polarizes yourself more and more on the postive and increases your magnetic power.
