Patanjali defines yoga as ‘yoga chitta vritti nirodha’ which means yoga is the process by which we can stop the modifications of the mind. What are the various modifications? There are many like dreaming, wrong thought processes, imagination etc. And only when your mind is silent and calm can you make the right decisions in life.

Some hope remains. Over the years, the WTO has accepted Codex standards as presumptive evidence of the rules of trade between countries. However, several times in history, the WTO has refused to make Codex the single and only standard to be used in trade disputes. Under Codex`s own statutes, their guidelines are claimed to be “advisory”, and nations are able to set up their own guidelines as long as they are more restrictive than those of Codex.

Without revealing too much about the film, the point that District 9 ultimately makes is that only by becoming the other is our empathy engaged. In other words, until we learn to empathize with the other and feel from their perspective, we will continue to be driven by selfish fear at the expense of cooperative benefit, accompanied often times with primitive, violent and sadistic behavior.

When you are done, take a look at the overall picture. Are there many more “2’s” than “1’s” and “0’s”? Also look at specific questions: Where are the zeros? (Note that this scoring is reversed in the negative characteristics section of the COMMUNICATION part, where high scores are a problem.)

Okay, once you have your seat and your spot, go ahead and sit down. Take a posture that is upright but not rigid. The idea is to take a posture that reflects your inherent brilliant sanity, so one that is dignified but not stiff. The back is straight with the curve in the lower back that is naturally there. I was once told to imagine that my spine was a tree and to lean against it. It works for me; you can see if it works for you.

As we grow we are instructed as to how to live, how to be. We are told what to do and what not to do. We are handed beliefs by the bucket load. We watch and observe others. Sometimes we choose to create certain behaviours to get our needs met. Perhaps our parents don’t give us enough loving and nurturing attention so we learn how to attract it.

MC Devlin speaks about the new MC/Stupid Stupid Henchmen song, "It Still Makes Me Wonder", but his brain is fried so he mostly rambles about body-boarding and how much Nazis suck, quite likely forgetting many important notes about the song. Enjoy!

The first half of the year will prove to be frustrating for most Aquarians as your good intentions will run into opposition. Your energy will be low and if you force issues, they will blow up on you. This is a time to keep well rested and slow down. You will not be able to set all your dreams in motion right away. Expect mechanical problems. Once you get into June the adversity lifts and forward progress will be achievable. Be patient!

Reducing anxiety begins from within. This is part 4 of a 7-Part Release Anxiety + Manage Trauma Meditation Series, Episodes 1353-1359.

The techniques also help to calm “monkey mind,” when your tho ……

You are correct to pay attention to your dreams.  Your father is coming through and your mother will someday soon as well.  You are aware that he has certain regrets (abandonment is the energy) in how he related to you.  He now wishes to have reconciliation with you but you must understand and know (we suggest) that you come to terms with a greater understanding:  his regrets stem from his being on our side.  He was not able to see and understand his withdrawn, detached behavior on your side as problematic.  He did not care for you in a proper manner because of his unresolved issue with (alcohol is the energy than father energy coming in which could indicate he had alcoholic father).  His own father was quite abusive and obstructed a hones relationship with him (got lying as an energy).  Your father therefore, was not able to form a honest relationship with you and continually told you parts of truths rather than the totality of the truth itself.  Your father now sees that he obstructed himself from great love.  He regrets his decision.  He comes through to let you he is healing.  He wants to heal his relationship with you.

When one has thus gained “access concentration”, the attention is then turned to the object of practice, which is normally thought or bodily sensations. One observes the objects of awareness without attachment, letting thoughts and sensations arise and pass away of their own accord. Mental labeling (explained above) is often use as a way to prevent you from being carried away by thoughts, and keep you in more objectively noticing them.

Hundreds of thousands of people wander about our modern day world with eyes so desperate it could break your heart. It isn’t the desperation of say, trying to stay afloat in forty-foot waves when a rescue boat is on the horizon, but more about the helplessness of not knowing if anyone even realizes they’ve been set adrift.

I finds retreat in the mystical lands of the Maya. Each year I look forward to returning to familiar places and seeing some familiar faces too. Venturing deep into the mysteries of the Maya, I find solace and peace and tranquillity. The warm sun, delicious traditional foods, and friendly locals always make me feel welcome; so much so, that I look forward to our Maya Sacred Path to 2012 trip each year. This year I also be joined by her daughter on our Awaken the Maya Spirit Within journey, making this retreat extra special.

As nutrition is such a vital ingredient in brain development, it stands to reason that supplementation may have a positive benefit, although this would vary from individual to individual. Some experts have gone as far as to suggest that certain cases of autism could be as a result of nutritional deficiencies or malabsorption of nutrients from the diet.

Milana has always had very strong connection to animals. When reading them she literally hears their thoughts in her mind and feels their joy or suffering. She is also able to connect with pets who are no longer with us.

Oh and by the way at an introductory event of Eker’s, I sat next to a lady who started Holosynch about the same time her husband decided to get divorced after many years of seemingly happy marriage. When I met her I was toying with the idea of doing Holosynch, but was a little skeptical if it could really work. She was emphatic that it absolutely DOES work and that she will continue with the meditation until the end. She credits Holosynch with helping her get through a painful divorce. She attended the Millionaire Mind Intensive Weekend a few months after starting Holosynch and told me that she has doubled her income every six months since that time.

Charles, I can feel your frustration. You probably should not go to this workshop (there will be others), since my intention isn’t to have people spend their last dime to attend. I’m sure it would be very helpful to you, even though it will not focus on how to make money and get that part of your life in order, but this probably isn’t the right time to do it. I will say, though, that your situation is a common one, so I’m going to address it in this post. Perhaps you will be able to attend another workshop at another time.

And I also know this; nobody is forcing you to work where you work. I’m sure your employer would be able to find somebody else to replace you, so why do waste your time doing something you don’t love?

First of all, you need to establish a formal practice schedule, a specific period when you will do Vipassana meditation and nothing else. When you were a baby, you did not know how to walk. Somebody went to a lot of trouble to teach you that skill. They dragged you by the arms. They gave you lots of encouragement. Made you put one foot in front of the other until you could do it by yourself. Those periods of instruction constituted a formal practice in the art of walking.

So I’ve taken the middle path. I apologize when necessary. But like a hawk, I notice when I belch “I’m sorry.” For many women (like it is for me), it’s a habit to apologize. And like any habit, it can be broken. The good news is that, by just noticing, you can break the habit.

9. Hate Veggies? FYI – a secret known by few. The big difference between a fruit and veggie is the calorie count. They are both loaded with vitamins and minerals and water! So, if veggies are something that you just cannot deal with, eat more fruit!

As the beach chairs get tucked away in the garage and the lawnmower is about to go into hibernation, we start to think (again) about preparing our homes for the cooler months. Taking energy saving steps now pays big dividends in the future.

Just for a moment imagine that you have successfully negotiated your way through your work-day, which basically means that you made it out alive! You worked through piles of paper; you managed not to react to irritating people, you enjoyed the happy moments, and much more!

Given that resources are not infinite, and many are quickly running out (like our soil, and our main energy sources), it might be wise for us to think about learning to design systems to grow at least some of our own food. And while we’re at it, we’ll be creating a world that not only supports life, but gives meaning to it.

You’ll seldom experience regret for anything that you’ve done. It is what you haven’t done that will torment you. The message, therefore, is clear. Do it! Develop an appreciation for the present moment. Seize every second of your life and savour it. Value your present moments! Using them up in self-defeating ways means you’ve lost them forever.

PRWEB) June 24, 2009 — Greenwala, the green social network, today launched its socially conscious contest platform with three contests that allow members to show off their skills with t-shirt design, green cooking and photography. This seems like the first Jhana. Pleasure and joy are hallmarks of this meditative absorption. You should not become attached to it, though. You don’t have to kick yourself. There will be plenty of opportunities to dwell in this absorption. You can enter this Jhana by concentrating on a pleasant physical sensation in the body, and you will stay in it so long as you do not become distracted from the resulting pleasure and joy. But let me emphasize that if your intentions are to make spiritual progress, then it is not about experiences. There will be many supermundane experiences along the way, but you must be disenchanted with them, otherwise you will stagnate. I finally got frustrated at work and started to take it out on my job. I really didn’t like my position, who I was working with and started to develop a lot of emotional stress-to the point where I had to take time off for stress leave and quit my job. It was hard since I really had no direction and felt better not being in that environment which made me think it was the job itself. Until I took the Personal, Professional & Spiritual (P.P.S.) Success Mastery Program – created by Paul Chek. This program really made me re-evaluate my life in all areas: personal, professional and spiritual. In these cases, supplementing with vitamin D is acceptable, but I strongly recommend you monitor your blood levels regularly when taking oral vitamin D supplements to make sure you’re staying within the optimal range.

“We believe this creates a winning situation for the company or brand, the nonprofit organization and our community members,” Kapur said. “The company or brand generates goodwill by supporting a worthy cause, the nonprofit has the opportunity to educate members about its cause, and community members learn and have fun entering, voting and sharing contests that have a socially conscious purpose.”

But then, there is the left side of our brain. Here we find all of our beliefs, indoctrinations and our fears. This is where the ego lives. It is the ego that wants to keep us safe. It is about survival. It does not want us to leap into that void.

One of my favorite things to do is to repeat the Lord’s Prayer one word at a time. Start with “our” and say “our” in your mind. Try to visualize it in your mind’s eye and just focus on “our” for 10-15 seconds (don’t worry about being exact because that defeats the purpose). Then clear your mind and either mentally or audibly repeat “Aum!” deeply and slowly three or four times, then move onto “Father”…. Continue through the prayer until you get to the end.

Excess unbalanced estrogen can be a problem for women of any age. While declining levels of estrogen are generally thought to be the hallmark of menopause, it is actually common for women to experience surges of abnormally high estrogen that is not balanced by progesterone and testosterone during any stage of adult life. For many women, estrogen dominance develops later in life, sometimes as a result of poor diet, liver impairment, lack of exercise, environmental factors, or as the result of menstrual cycles during which ovulation does not occur. When there is no ovulation, less progesterone is produced which can result in estrogen imbalance.

“la meditación para perder peso +meditación para ansiedad music unplug meditation”

La meditación es la simple práctica de un estado de concentración. Nuestra atención se puede centrar en multitud de cosas durante la meditación: nuestro pensamiento, nuestra energía interna, nuestra propia conciencia, la misma concentración, u objetos externos. Meditar es dejarnos fluir, dejando de lado el cuerpo y la mente, centrándonos en el aquí y ahora. Dejamos que nuestra mente sea libre, sin fijarnos en los pensamientos que crea, para que fluyan entrando y saliendo.

No cabe duda que la postura que adoptemos para nuestro cuerpo, es fundamental para el mejoramiento de nuestro estado de ánimo, para manifestar una actitud positiva. Tú puedes experimentarlo en este preciso momento en que estás leyendo este artículo, si fuera el caso. El estar acostado, o “echado” en un sillón, como coloquialmente se dice, te hará sentir flojera o desgano, pero si en este momento, enderezas tu espalda y te sientas completamente erguido, te sentirás mejor en presencia y actitud.

Lo inútil debe de estar ahí. Lo útil es como un jardín, limpio, cuidado; lo inútil es como un bosque inmenso, natural, no puede ser tan limpio ni tan cuidado. La naturaleza tiene su propia belleza y cuando algo está tan limpio y arreglado, está ya muerto. Un jardín no puede estar muy vivo porque lo podas, lo cortas, lo ma­nipulas. Un gran bosque tiene una vitalidad, un alma muy pode­rosa. Métete en un bosque y siente el impacto; piérdete en un bos­que y sabrás de su poder. En un jardín no puedes sentir su poder; no está ahí, es hecho por el hombre. Puedes contemplarlo, es her­moso, pero es cultivado, está planeado, manipulado.

Entonces, ¿qué es un sannyasín? No es una mente; por el contrario, es inocente. Es tan inocente como un niño recién nacido: sin pasado, sin idea del futuro. Un sannyasin, en todo momento, es un niño re­cién nacido. Éste es el proceso: en todo momento, se re­siste al pasado. Todo lo que haya pasado, lo deja de lado, lo abandona, porque es algo muerto, sólo polvo; no es ne­cesario cargar con él. Se limpia y vuelve a renovar su es­pejo. Permanentemente, limpia su espejo. Llamo medita­ción a esta limpieza.

AUTOCUIDADO FISICO AUTOCUIDADO FISICO El envejecimiento es parte integrante y natural de la vida. Depende de nuestra estructura genética y de lo que hacemos en nuestra vida. Es común a todos los miembros

Pero en este punto en especial quiero decirte que a menos que el Yo sea facultado en su totalidad, la vida espiritual, lo que viniste a experimentar aquí, nunca será una realidad. Nunca caminarás como un maestro mientras continúes dejando huellas en el ayer. El pasado fue la generación de crecimiento que consistió, esencialmente, en entregar el poder a elementos de autoridad superiores. Y esa autoridad pudo haber sido sencillamente tus compañeros de clase del primer año, al comienzo de lo que llamamos conciencia social. O pudo haber sido entregar el poder a tus padres y la manera como ellos te criaron. Así comenzó el sangrar, si quieres, de una vida desordenada, aparentemente sin más propósito que dejarse llevar por la corriente y apenas sobrevivir. Una vida en la cual no cuenta lo inimaginable, sólo lo que está de moda o lo que es fácil.

Explora tu cuerpo. Este procedimiento implica enfocarse en cada parte del cuerpo individualmente y relajarla de forma consciente. Esta es una técnica de meditación sencilla que te permite relajar la mente mientras relajas el cuerpo.

-Sí, había millones, pero durante la noche las quitamos to­das, porque creemos en el uno. Y ésta es la más bella de todas ellas, en una multitud te hubiera pasado inadvertida. De modo que las hemos quitado todas; sólo la mejor, la más bella, ha sido conservada para ti.

La “moda” de tatuarse se vino intensificando progresivamente gracias a la influencia que han venido ejerciendo los medios de comunicación manipulando las mentes de las personas a través del cine, la música con sus artistas, deportistas, actores favoritos y que en muchas ocasiones promocionan su culto a dioses paganos antiguos como … la diosa, la reina del cielo.

Por ejemplo, la vida existe a causa de la muerte. Si no hay muerte no puede haber vida. La muerte no es el final y la muerte no es el enemigo, más bien al contrario, pues debido a la muerte, es posible la vida. Por eso la muerte no está en algún lugar al fi­nal, está implícita en el aquí y ahora. Cada instante tiene su vida y su muerte, de otro modo la existencia es imposible.

Norman Cousins decía frecuentemente a sus alumnos de la Facultad de Medicina: “El centro de control de sus vidas es su actitud”. Las actitudes y afirmaciones negativas conducen a la enfermedad y a los sentimientos derrotistas. Las actitudes positivas conducen a la esperanza, al amor y a la diversión. ¡Ánimo!  Dr. Cesar Lozano

El Maestro dijo. “Fue por tu culpa. Estabas sentado a mi lado y yo estaba dividido. Me mirabas y entonces yo estaba orientado hacia un objetivo, no existía placer. Cuando te fuiste, me relajé… Sentí que nadie me observaba y fui uno. Este diseño no lo he he­cho yo, ha venido por sí mismo. Durante tres meses no salía porque yo era el que actuaba”.

La búsqueda misma – en lo que consiste y su objetivo – ha de ser comprendida. Parece que existe una brecha en el ser humano, en la mente humana. En la estructura misma de la consciencia humana parece que existe un agujero, un agujero negro. Sigues lanzándole cosas y ellas siguen desapareciendo. Parece que nada lo llena, parece que no hay nada que lo pueda llenar. Es una búsqueda desesperada. Lo buscas en este mundo, lo buscas en el otro mundo, a veces lo buscas en el dinero, en el poder, en la fama y a veces lo buscas en Dios, en la dicha, en el amor, en la meditación, en la oración, pero la búsqueda continúa. Parece que el hombre padece la enfermedad del buscar.

La mayoría de nosotros conocemos a alguien que tiene fobia a hablar en público, esto es debido a que su mente subconsciente asocia miedo a quedar expuesto al ridículo, entonces su mente inconsciente aprende por repetición, que probablemente hubo una etapa en la vida de esa persona lo pasó mal delante de personas y la mente subconsciente asoció el estar frente a personas con esas sensaciones malas. Imaginemos que esa persona salió a la pizarra de pequeño y todos se burlaron de él, es probable que su mente subconsciente comenzase a asociar: “hablar delante de gente = quedar en ridículo”, por lo tanto, para que esto no haga daño emocionalmente, el subconsciente asocia malas sensaciones al estar hablando en público, así evita el problema.

Los hombres de negocios son honestos si la honradez les rin­de provecho. Dicen: “La honradez es la mejor inversión”. ¿Cómo puede uno destruir una cosa maravillosa como la honradez para convertirla en la mejor inversión? La inversión es política, la hon­radez es religión.

Krishna hablando a Arjuna en la Gita es en realidad el cen­tro hablando a la periferia. Arjuna vive en la periferia: piensa desde el cuerpo, no sabe nada del alma. Y Krishna habla des­de el centro y dice: «No te preocupes de estos cuerpos. Han muerto muchas veces y morirán muchas veces. La muerte es una transformación, como si uno deja sus ropas, deja su vieja casa y entra en una nueva casa. Este cuerpo no es nada, Arju­na, modo que no te preocupes por él. Mira adentro». Pero ¿cómo puede Arjuna mirar dentro de los otros si no ha mirado dentro de sí mismo?

Luego quiero que dibujes la resolución. Quizás la mejor manera de hacerlo es volver a dibujar el corazón. Dentro de un cuerpo pequeño hay un corazón gigante, radiante y brillante que habla de un lugar de paz espiritual. O tal vez podemos dibujar el cuerpo y simular que es el templo y que a través de sus cúspides y ventanas pasa la luz del poder espiritual. A lo mejor es así como lo vemos. O quizá vemos la resolución como un pergamino largo y antiguo que quedó sin terminar y lo vemos mientras se enrolla. O la vemos como una jaula que se abre y de donde sale volando una paloma. Cualquiera que sea nuestra representación, debe ser un dibujo que sea significativo para nosotros. Y cuando lo hagamos correctamente, comprenderemos nuestro propio viaje. Los mándalas no deben hacerse en masa. Son aspectos personales del viaje individual. Los debe crear cada uno. ¿Comprendes?

Ryutan ofreció a Tokusan una vela encendida. Dijo: «Muy bien. Si no puedes mirar adentro y la oscuridad en la que vi­ves, la oscuridad de la mente… Hablo del interior y miras afuera; si éste es tu enfoque, te daré una vela».

Cuando no sabes, ¿qué ocurre en este desconocimiento? El fe­nómeno más bello… El mayor éxtasis sucede cuando no sabes; cuando no sabes sólo hay silencio. Alguien pregunta algo y tú no sabes. La vida es un enigma y tú no lo sabes, estás rodeado de misterio y tú estás aquí sin saber, asombrado. Cuando no sabes se da el asombro, y el maravillarse es la cualidad más religiosa. La cualidad religiosa más profunda es la capacidad de asombro. Sólo un niño puede asombrarse. Un hombre que sabe no puede asombrarse, y sin asombrarse nadie ha alcanzado lo divino. Es el cora­zón asombrado para el cual todo es un misterio… una mariposa es un misterio, una semilla germinando es un misterio.

través de la nariz en cuatro tiempos. Uno. Dos. Tres. Cuatro. Contén el aliento durante cuatro tiempos. Y luego exhala a través de las fosas nasales en cuatro tiempos. Continúa haciendo este proceso ocho veces más. Esto debería tomarte un minuto y medio. Te esperaré. Muy probablemente tu respiración habrá disminuido a diez respiraciones por minuto, tu pulso habrá bajado un 20 por ciento, la ansiedad habrá decaído y la humedad que la piel emana cuando estás sobresaltado o estresado, se habrá reducido. Estarás más tranquilo en este momento que hace dos minutos atrás. Cualquiera de nosotros podría monitorizar formalmente estas bioseñales para dar seguimiento a nuestro progreso, si así lo elegimos. Tradicionalmente, las bioseñales monitoreadas en la biorretroalimentación son el ECG (electrocardiograma); EEG (electroencefalograma); VRC (variabilidad del ritmo cardíaco), y RGP (respuesta galvánica de la piel). La VRC mide el tiempo o intervalo entre cada latido del corazón. Curiosamente, la variación del intervalo entre latidos es señal de un corazón sano. ¡Hay posibilidades infinitas incluso en los latidos del corazón! La RGP detecta el aumento en los niveles de transpiración generados por el sistema nervioso autónomo y se usa tradicionalmente en los procesos de detección de mentiras cuando uno está conectado al polígrafo. Además de volverse más conductora la piel mientras se dice una mentira, también transpira cuando experimentamos enojo, miedo, dolor, sorpresa, sentimientos sexuales y excitación emocional. El uso de pruebas del detector de mentiras en los tribunales sigue siendo cuestionable, pero lo cierto es que los detectores de mentira sí revelan ciertas respuestas involuntarias a situaciones estresantes, tales como aumento de la conductividad de la piel y del ritmo respiratorio. Pero eso no significa que la persona está mintiendo . . . sólo que está mostrando estrés.

Bandas, las : Son los dos conjuntos de siete frecuencias cada uno que rodean al cuerpo humano y lo mantienen unido. Cada una de esas siete capas de frecuencia en cada banda, corresponde a los siete sellos de los siete niveles de conciencia en el cuerpo humano. Las bandas son el campo áurico que posibilita los procesos de la mente binaria y la mente analógica.

Exactamente del mismo modo, un día, a los catorce años, el niño empieza a sentir una tremenda atracción hacia el sexo opuesto. Nadie le ha enseñado; en realidad, sus profesores le han adoctrinado en su contra. Toda la historia de la Huma­nidad parece ser una enseñanza en contra de la sexualidad, contra la energía sexual. Las religiones, las culturas, las civilizaciones, los sacerdotes y los políticos, todos han estado enseñando que hay que reprimir el sexo. Pero aun así no puede ser suprimido.

Así como un día los científicos se rebelaron contra la religión y sus dictámenes, ahora se han de rebelar de nuevo contra los políticos y sus dictámenes.  Los científicos deben valerse por sí mismos y tener una absoluta claridad para no ser explotados.  Están siendo explotados en todas partes.  Sólo porque les darán el Premio Nobel y grandes honores. Están dispuestos a sacrificar a toda la Humanidad por sus premios Nobel, por todas esas estúpidas recompensas.  Ya no deben comportarse más como niños.  Esos galardones, esos premios y esos puestos respetables son todos juguetes para engañarte y aún así tus grandes científicos están comportándose como tontos.  Cuando la casa se está incendiando, no permanezcas en el interior jugando con juguetes.  ¡Sal!

Si estás dividido -y siempre estás dividido: medio en movi­miento, medio contenido; en parte diciendo sí, en parte diciendo no; medio enamorado, medio odiando; eres un reino dividido ­hay un conflicto constante en ti.

El símbolo Chai es usado frecuentemente por los judíos en un medallón alrededor del cuello, junto con el Maguen David o Estrella de David y el Hamsa. Aunque raro, Chai también puede ser usado como nombre de varón. Chaya, derivado de chai, es un nombre femenino popular en hebreo. El nombre Chaim es un nombre bastante común para un niño varón, particularmente entre los judíos ortodoxos y en Israel. Entre los judíos, tanto religiosos como seculares, el brindis I’chaim, que significa “Por la vida”, es utilizado frecuentemente cuando se celebra algo, ya sea un día de fiesta, un cumpleaños, una boda, etcétera.

Vipassana meditation is almost immediately associated with the work of SN Goenka. Vipassana can be roughly translated into insight. The absolute goal of this style of mediation is to pierce through the veil of reality. Pretty deep stuff.

Employee turnover rate is a significant problem in many industries. According to a 2008 report, turnover rate among sales people has exceeded 40% annually with similar figures in the US.[158] This is a disadvantage to businesses because replacing labor is extremely costly. The report studied the impact cognitive-behavioral therapy had on 166 financial service sales agents from a major British insurance company which had recently been acquired by a competitive, results-oriented organization.[158] Measurements were based on employee well-being, job satisfaction, productivity and turnover.[158] Major organizational changes lead to a substantial number of employees quitting. Three months prior to the study, 71% of the participants reported experiencing work-related stress and performing poorly.[158] According to the results, there were major improvement in employees’ attributional style, psychological distress, self-esteem, job satisfaction and intention to quit.[158] Symptoms of psychological stress warranting intervention reduced from 37% of the sample to 10% after training.[158] The psychological changes were also accompanied by a 66% reduction in employee turnover rate.[158] Productivity had also improved post two years after training where 65% of the sample had achieved sales figures above the average. This is a significant increase prior to training where 29% of participants were barely performing at acceptable standards.[158]

The practice of empathy is a powerful gift. To be able to feel the pain that another experiences is a divine favor. For it is through empathy that we acquire the capacity to love even our enemies, and so become true, human beings.

To stay in the present moment means that when the abdomen falls you aren’t thinking about the last rising movement, since it has already disappeared. To think of it then would be to stray back to the past, to continue to dwell on an object that no longer existed.

Now let’s say for a moment that someone with a pelvic floor issue  just can’t bring themselves to sign up for internal work yet. Susan and I have each come up with a few tips that can help with habits that create or perpetuate hypertonus. I’ll post those in the next day or so, because this post is too long already! Zazen (坐禅) means “seated Zen”, or “seated meditation”, in Japanese. It has its roots in the Chinese Zen Buddhism (Ch’an) tradition, tracing back to Indian monk Bodhidharma (6th century CE). In the West, its most popular forms comes from Dogen Zenji (1200~1253), the founder of Soto Zen movement in Japan. Similar modalities are practiced in the Rinzai school of Zen, in Japan and Korea. It all starts with you and your Attitude. Your customers will also sense it. Do your customers want to buy your products over the competition? Are you recognized as an expert in your field? The best question is are you in the right industry doing the right things at the right time? Do you love what you do and if you don’t… why are you there? I once read that if you are experiencing conflict between your business and personal life, that it’s a sign that you are in the right business. Meaning if you spend so much time working you lose track of time… this is a good indication that you love what you do. Now of course remember that family and friends are what carry you through and are most important however loving what you do will create business success for you. You have to have passion in order to succeed in the way that happiness will bring. If you don’t love your business it will show and everyone around you will suffer for it. If that happens do what you can to work it and get it ready to sell and get rid of it. Waiting until your unhappy will only add to your suffering and the business will suffer as a result. You want to feel exuberated, exhilarated not drained and worried.

Once you have your affirmations, there are a number of ways you can use them. When repeating the affirmations, put some feeling into it and think about what you are trying to accomplish. Repeating the affirmations out loud is better than doing it silently as you also hear it when it’s out loud. If you are in a situation where you can’t repeat it out loud, do it silently. That is still better than not doing it at all.

And it is quite different from the mindfulness we might use in daily life. 3.Guided Meditation– In these meditations, either live or recorded, one is voice-guided step-by-step through a meditative experience. All forms of meditation can be guided, and many are often practiced with recorded or in-person guidance at first. For those struggling with what to do comes an unmatched alternative that combines the respectable option of an urn with the accentuated beauty of an original, distinguished plaster portrait making the final resting place as unique as the love you shared. Gretchen’s Creations LLC offers a patent pending 3-dimensional plaster portrait that offers the option of ash cremains embedded into the plaster portrait of your pet. Gretchen Kiefer, artist/inventor and owner of Gretchen’s Creations LLC, feels her service, “offers the grieving pet owner a discreet, and dignified way of memorializing”. Whereas most fine art discourages touch, Gretchen’s artwork encourages the opportunity to “touch” your departed friend keeping the joyful memories alive. With many film and stage roles to his credit Nicholas Franklin Bray has recently finished the lead role in the film “Alter”, which was accepted by the “Big Apple Film Festival in New York. Nicholas’s next project is the lead in a film “The Tale of True Blue”, and will also be in the film “Boys of Summer”. He also has film projects in New York, Los Angeles, Michigan, and Phoenix. Nicholas summed up his acting career thus far with these words: One’s chosen diet and lifestyle are large factors in determining the amount of the aromatase enzyme in the body. Although chrysin is found in flowers, many flavonoids with lesser aromatase inhibiting abilities are found in common fruits and vegetables. Apples, cabbage, onions and garlic are good sources of quercetin, a powerful flavonoid. The flavonoid apigenin is found in parsley, celery and chamomile. Genistein and diadzein are isoflavones found in fermented soy. Red wine is still another source of healing flavonoids. Although alcohol may increase aromatase activity, the flavonoid components of red wine more than make up for it. Chrysin and other flavonoids from flowers are found in significant amounts in bee propolis and bee pollen. Any woman with signs of estrogen dominance may benefit from adding these flavonoid containing foods to her diet.

Studies are usually funded by bigger organizations and they usually have an agenda or a position they want to promote. There are numbers listed and I would rather see hard numbers than percentage values. Review the article below then my comments thereafter. Buddhism teaches that every being is reborn over and over again into various realms according to his actions. Until a person’s mind is completely purified there is no end to the cycle. The ultimate goal of the Buddhist, and of vipassana practice, is release from this cycle of birth and death, release from the round of conditioned existence, called “samsara.” It is possible for that release, called “Nibbana,” to occur in the present lifetime if we can develop mindfulness and wisdom to a sufficient degree. Life on the Palestinian West Bank in 2002 is often frustrating for Muna Farah (Nisreen Faour). As a single mother separated from her philandering husband, she struggles to raise her teenage son, Fadi (Melkar Muallem), under trying circumstances. Just being a working mom is difficult enough, but add in Muna’s two-hour commute from her home in Bethlehem to her job as a bank officer in the Palestinian territory (facing intrusive scrutiny at government checkpoints all along the way), and the routine of her everyday life becomes that much more arduous. She’s also preoccupied with shedding some pounds, an undertaking where the losses seemingly involve everything but weight. Clearly, Muna is ready for a change. Today we’ll talk about the biology of stress…what it is, where it came from, and how in the world to outrun it…or to beat it at it’s own game. We’ll look at stopping stress, reducing stress, and eating our way to stress free. ^ Jump up to: a b Roger Walsh & Shauna L.

The bestselling author revisits his classic “Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus,” to move beyond and look at relationships in the modern world. Today, men and women are no longer trapped by rigid societal roles. Now, more than ever, we have the freedom to be our authentic selves. Women can access their masculine side, and men can embrace their feminine side. This new freedom is a good thing, but it also brings new challenges. In this book, Gray teaches how to strengthen your bond and grow in love together, so you and your loved one can meet each other’s needs in the best way possible — bringing you lasting happiness and a fulfilling partnership. This is a very important question that I address specifically in Love Your Body, Love Your Life. Yes, many people, probably most people, say that disliking your body is a normal part of being a woman.  If by “normal” they mean that the majority of women, 80-90%, dislike their bodies, then yes, it is “normal”.  The vast majority of women in this culture at this time do dislike their bodies.

How often do we take time–even a nanosecond–to appreciate not what we’re doing, but simply that we arebeing the grown-up in this little person or these little people’s lives?

When you’re able to separate your awareness from an emotion—able to leave the anger or sadness alone and become the observer—the emotion has no power to control you or cause suffering. The key is to be mindful as soon as it appears so you don’t get hooked in the early stages.

According to the yogis, your breath is the clearest indicator of your mental state. If your breath is fast and unsteady, you can do simple breathing exercises to bring it back to normal. If you are tense and your bodyis stiff, you can do simple stretches and asanas to relax your body. You can practice bandhas (neuromuscular locks) which balance your hormones and bring your entire system to its optimum level.

Think about what you want to achieve with your meditation. People come to meditation for a wide range of reasons — whether to improve their creativity, help visualize a goal, quiet their inner chatter, or make a spiritual connection. If your only goal is to spend a few minutes every day being present in your body without worrying about everything you have to do, that’s reason enough to meditate. Try not to over-complicate your reasons for meditating. At its core, meditation is just about relaxing and refusing to be caught up in everyday anxieties. For his part, Tolstoy relished the attention, even though he was more of a passive, unwitting prophet than an active advocate for the movement, especially since he didn’t always personally abide by its tenets. He had grown uncomfortable with materialism, for example, yet didn’t seem to mind living in a grand estate. And celibacy was something that almost seemed foreign to him, despite what his supporters believed. He preached that “love” was at the heart of all his writings and his thinking, but he often seemed unclear about exactly what that meant. So here was someone who was at the center of an emerging philosophical paradigm who wasn’t always sure what he believed himself. First, when you say that a lot is changing inside but not that much outside, you’re in effect saying that you’re not translating the internal changes you’ve experienced into external actions and outcomes. You are not yet embodying the changes. My first intuition, or educated guess, is that you are waiting for something different to “happen.” Meditating outside works for many so long as you don’t sit near a busy roadway or another source of loud noise. You can find peace under a tree or sitting upon some lush grass in a favorite corner of a garden. If you are so inclined to assist in making a positive impact, I would encourage you to seek out and become an active participant in one or more of these groups.  We no longer live in a time that necessitates us complaining of our current circumstances. By joining forces, we come together as a miraculous Collective Consciousness for the highest good of all people and our Blessed Earth.  Many have devoted my life to transform challenges into infinite possibilities.  Will you join us?

‘I wake up bursting with energy and excited about life. Once I have my lemon water, I practice my yoga.  I put on my work out clothes and go for a 5 km run around the neighbourhood.  The sun is shinning and birds are chirping.  After my run, I do a workout which includes my favourite, lunges. Feeling great afterwards, I prepare and consume a fruit smoothie high in antioxidants and protein, while I read my book and relax. I pack for a hike which is with a good friend.  The forest trail provides much fresh air and at the lake I take a swim to refresh and get grounded.  Before dinner, I walk through the garden to pick greens for a large salad I eat outside in the backyard. The evening is relaxing as I read and watch the sunset.  I fall sound asleep for several hours until the next morning.’

Do something that makes you happy and of your achievement. I’m not suggesting becoming an overbearing, arrogant, know it all. What I do recommend is you show passion in what you accomplish, and that you enjoy your job, business, and life in general. That passion will show in your face. Instead of slumped shoulders, and a perpetual frown, your head will be held higher, and wearing a smile. Life is much more pleasant when you smile and enjoy its gifts.
During the interview, Heather explained that giving her daughter up for adoption was the most challenging experience of her life. She had to go through the grief process and deal with sorrow and her feelings of loss. Yet, by the same event, Heather also received a magnificent gift—she discovered her life’s purpose. She discovered that she wanted to become a labour and delivery nurse.
Take a deep breath and as you exhale, say the word “yam,” which is the vibration associated with the heart chakra. As you do this, imagine a glowing green energy radiating from your chest and into your palms. Mary Giuffre ~ Specializing in Feng Shui For Your Spirit©   Sign up for my SoulWater Wisdom Newsletter at www.SoulWaterEnergyWorks.comwww.ActsOfJoy.com Meditation is a word that has come to be used loosely and inaccurately in the modern world. That is why there is so much confusion about how to practice it. Some people use the word meditate when they mean thinking or contemplating; others use it to refer to daydreaming or fantasizing. However, meditation is not any of these.

If you present yourself as a confident, assertive, capable person, others will respond accordingly. How much confidence you appear to have is determined from the 3 V’s; visual, vocal and verbal image.

Your affirmations can include how you would like to feel: “I am energetic; I feel wonderful; or I feel safe”. Your affirmations can include how you would like your life to be: “I am a prosperous person; I attract positive people into my life; I lose weight easily or I solve problems easily”. Another way to develop affirmations is to use them to counter your negative self-talk. When you catch yourself saying something negative to yourself, develop an affirmation that counteracts the negative thought and start using it until you feel differently about yourself.

Members of this year’s class are focused in four general areas: livelihoods and economic development; the environment and affordable energy; health and education; and information and communications technology.

When that happens, limit your goal. Just take it one breath at a time. Remind yourself, “I only have to note one rising movement.” Or, “I just have to note this single falling movement. Just this much.” To let go of your resistance, worry or aversion for one moment isn’t hard (and even during those times when it isn’t easy, it’s still possible). Then do it again for one more moment. And again. In a few minutes the feeling of resistance may change by itself, because it’s the nature of the mind to change.

Meditation is the most popular way of dealing with stress in the present world. Mediation has originated for centuries and is in practice till today. Especially Buddhist mediation is proven to be most effective from the people who do it regularly as it gives extra glow and energy. There are many Buddhist monks even today and most of them live in Europe, United States and some other parts of the world.

Illness, lack, scarcity, violence, indifference ~ unfortunately the list goes on and on ~ all vibrate at a very low energetic frequency and we feed these harmful energies by dramatizing our misfortunes. Continuous repetition prolongs the anguish of distressing events because we relive the trauma over and over and over again. Without realizing it at a conscious level we vibrate in sync with all that low-level energy, causing dis-ease in every part of our lives.

Rabbits bought around this time of the year are nothing more than impulse driven purchases.  They are bought because they are “Oh, so cute”, or because they are on sale, or because they look just like that bunny in that commercial with the chocolate eggs, or because a child refused to stop crying until daddy buys one, and so on…   Later these often end up abused, abandoned, surrendered to shelters, or released outside.  The reason?  Most people aren’t willing to cover $100+ vet visit and medicine cost for a bunny who’s price was only $20.

Well, yes and no. On the one hand, suffering less and being more aware of our inherent wakefulness would be changes from how we experience ourselves right now, or at least most of the time. On the other hand, though, the way to uncover brilliant sanity and to alleviate suffering is by going more deeply into the present moment and into ourselves as we already are, not by trying to change what is already going on.

For most people, Mindfulness Meditation may be the only type of meditation they will like, especially if their focus is only the physical and mental benefits of meditation, as it is usually taught dissociated from several of the eastern concepts and philosophies that traditionally accompanied the practice. And for that it is great – it will bring many good things to your life. rickhansonRick Hanson, Ph.D., is neuropsychologist, a meditation teacher and is a weekly contributor to psychology-today.com.

If you have true faith in the market, you might think that this transition will just make the delivery of mindfulness and community all the more efficient. But there’s a long American tradition of religious groups acting as a counterbalance to the weight of consumerist culture. For those with less faith in the commercial model, the situation might seem a little grim. Siddhartha Gautama set out to eliminate desire. But perhaps desire’s greatest structural incarnation—the marketplace—will eliminate him.

In today’s toxic environment, tissue acid wastes, chemical and heavy metal residues build up in the body resulting in a greater incidence of allergies, mental, and physical incapacitation. To combat the effects, numerous products and programs are available to support the body in its natural cleansing process.

As is the nature of our Divine universe, I was provided with several enlightened insights because of Deborah’s note. Through her I received the clarity to recognize how easily we can be fooled by our humanness. I’ve been reminded that Spiritual growth has everything to do with our experiences, and what we allow ourselves to feel from them; that Spiritual maturity is shaped by wisdom, not pride and that messages channelled from Spirit will never pull you under. Most importantly is that this gift of channelling is not exclusive. Through Deborah I received exactly what I needed, because we are ALL one with the Divine and we are all share equally in these gifts.
