Does the world feel like it is moving too fast to keep up with? Technology going at breakneck speed whether it is underwater drones, driverless cars, to stem cell treatment helping people with Multiple Scorsese MS to walk again? The challenge is that we need to feel safe in this fast paced environment during the changing of the age.
Breaking the mould, we have created is frightening. This is what is happening to your kids or the younger generation, they are moving beyond our comfort zone to break all the moulds we put in place to make us feel safe. We must allow this, as this is how innovation is generated. Fruits needs to be greater than the tree who gave birth to it. If we stay trapped at the vibrational level of our brain mind connection, which is constantly rehashing old material we are not allowing our future to unfold. Evolution tries 50,000 things to discover one thing that works, i.e. 49,999 mistakes. Imagine allowing a part of your life to go beyond your limits so you can allow yourself to dream, make mistakes and not be curbed by criticism. When you are the dreamer, different from everyone else you will be criticised and you have to be immune to that criticism. You have to value yourself so much that your body’s Immune system is willing to protect you against outside attack. (Look at the blog on how to increase your value)
You need to spend time every day, outside of your mind, meditation. Walk the middle path like Buddha. Understand that logic is the gravity which keeps your feet on the ground but spend time in magical fantasy daily. This is real freedom and how evolution changes the universe. Things you bring from your past polish the ones you want to keep or discard those that no longer serve you. Do what you do when you clear out your fridge with your habits and mind. Get rid of the old ones that do not serve you and dream up new ones that uplift you.
When we feel safe we open up our hearts and allow the new into our lives. When you love someone, what is really happening is that person makes you feel so safe that you can open yourself up to feel the love that exists always. The people you do not love do not make you feel safe therefore you are not open to feeling the love that always exists. You need to breath consciously in situations when you feel critical and unsafe. Make yourself feel so relaxed and secure that you are always open to the love that exits in every moment. This is how we can feel safe even when expanding out of our comfort zone.
Meditation for Haunting Thoughts
In yogic tradition, it is said that this meditation successfully removes unsettling thoughts from the past that surface into the present; that it can take difficult situations in the present and release them into the hands of Infinity; that this can be done in just 40 seconds and it really works!
- Lower the eyelids until the eyes are one-tenth open. Concentrate on the tip of the nose. Simply say the mantra Wahe Guru aloud in the following manner:Wha: Mentally focus on the right eye. Hey: Mentally focus on the left eye. Guru:Mentally focus on the tip of the nose.
- Remember the encounter or incident that happened to you.
- Mentally repeat Wahe Guru with the focus as before.
- Visualize and personify the actual feeling of the encounter.
- Repeat step 3.
- Reverse roles in the encounter you are remembering. Become the other person and experience that perspective.
- Repeat step 3.
- Forgive the other person and forgive yourself.
- Repeat step 3.
- Let go of the incident and release it into the Universe.
Exercise to Increase Energy and Release Rage
Begin with hands in loose fists at the shoulders, upper arms resting along the sides of the torso, elbows pointing down. Inhale as you alternately straighten one arm from the shoulder, twist the fist out, and “punch.”Exhale as you draw the fist back to the shoulder. Repeat with the other arm and keep alternating arms. Focus the open eyes on one specific point, like a target, that you are punching. Continue at a rapid pace for 1-5 minutes.Really move strongly from the shoulders. Rage is a combination of sadness and anger and often resides in the shoulders. Do not do this exercise facing another person—face a landscape or visualize a vast horizon line. Offer it up to the elements of earth, water, fire, air and ether.
