and Manifesting, Simplified
How to put them to practice for
the purpose of health, healing, and more.
simplest definition of meditation is "the focusing of the mind on
any one thing", whether it be a thought, idea, concept, person, place,
thing, object, smell, sound, taste, feeling, emotion, intention, word,
phrase, sentence, nothing, etc. Meditation has many different purposes,
different people. It really depends upon the individual, their current
level of consciousness & truth, and what they want to
accomplish by doing
it. The most common reasons people meditate are to reduce stress and to
find greater peace. Being at peace within one's own mind brings peace
and happiness to EVERY aspect of an individual's life, at ALL times,
despite life's circumstances. One is not subject to negative
mentalities (stress) when the mind doesn't react negatively to outside
phenomenon. Silence and one-pointedness of mind are generally the goal.
is no specific physical position in which you need to assume when
meditating. Some people prefer sitting on the floor with the legs
crossed, in the lotus position, while other people prefer sitting in a
chair with their feet on the ground. Find a position that is
comfortable for you. It can even be lying down if you so choose, but
that may lead to sleepiness, and falling asleep would defeat the whole
purpose of doing meditation in the first place. Really, the only common
recommendation is to be in a position where the spine is straight and
erect, and the head is in alignment with the spine. This is mainly to
promote better circulation and energy flow throughout the body.
meditation that many people start with is focusing on their
breathing. Oxygenating the mind and body is excellent for focus and
concentration, as well as for healing physical problems and health
issues. It's been said that "breath is the substance of life". There
are many different breathing techniques out there, none of which are
specifically "needed" but they all recommend breathing deeply through
the belly, not the chest. If you want to breathe both in and out
through the nose, do that. If you want to breathe in through the nose
and out through the mouth, do that. If you're unable to breathe in
through the nose, then do it through the mouth. Again, do whatever you
are comfortable doing. There are no specific rules although certain
techniques may provide more substantial results and effects.
unless you're focusing on an object you are looking at, it's
recommended to have the eyes closed. As for the amount of time to sit
in meditation for, 20-30 minutes is quite often a popular
recommendation. Again, it comes back to what the individual is wanting
to accomplish by meditating. At first, training the mind to focus on
one thing will probably be difficult and the mind will most likely
wander. As soon as you take notice that it's wandering, just let those
pointless thoughts go and return to the point of focus. Frustration,
impatience, and boredom are some of the exact pointless thoughts that
should be let go of. Just like anything else in life, the more you
practice meditation, the easier it will become. Don't expect dramatic
changes and results overnight. Changes might not even be noticeable at
first but don't let this deter you from keeping up the practice.
"Nothing ventured, nothing gained" and "practice makes perfect".
emotions, feelings, and most importantly
the INTENTION behind those thoughts literally creates PHYSICAL reality.
think that the thoughts in our head are "mine" and that
exist in "my" head but this is absolutely not true. Thoughts are
mostly random and repetitive, happening all by THEMSELVES,
which is not the individual's doing, and because of our unawareness we
identify those random thoughts as being "me", when they're not.
Thoughts, just like everything else, are just a small minute part of
the larger whole, which is the entire universe. Nobody and nothing is
separate from any other person or thing. Everything is connected and
everything is One thing.
can be demonstrated
quite easily by focusing on a cloud
in the sky with the thought/intention "square cloud", and after roughly
10 minutes of gentle concentration, that cloud will be square.
You ARE that cloud, and Everything else. ANYTHING can be set into
motion and created with nothing more than
focus, intention, feeling and KNOWING that it's working. The catch is
that it won't work if you even SUBCONSCIOUSLY doubt it or don't believe
it. Being skeptical will not reveal the truth. Open mindedness and
believing are absolutely required to shape that cloud, or to heal the
IMPORTANT KEY POINTS:
Never focus on the negative.
Never focus on what you hate, don't like, or don't want.
Always focus on the positive.
on being perfectly healed and healthy, not on the disease or ailment.
Always focus on what you do
want, in the present tense, as if that something ALREADY IS, and then
it will be.
Why? Because time is an
illusion and because "thoughts are things." -
Thoughts literally create
PHYSICAL reality, in one's body, and in the rest of one's "outer" life
What we think, we receive.
"What we think, we become." -
Whatever you put your focus on,
think about, and give attention, you give more energy and a greater
Whatever you put your focus on,
think about, and give attention, you receive.
Let's repeat... NEVER focus on
the negatives because that will only create MORE of the negatives.
can't focus on the negative and somehow expect to receive the positive.
It may be difficult to
understand or accept but thoughts don't just change the present, they
can also change the "past".
This is referred to as
"synchronicity". This creates so-called "co-incidences", "accidents",
"luck", "miracles", etc.
Hold the positive thought, feel
it with your very being, KNOW IT, allow it, NEVER doubt it, and it will
come to be.
Be grateful for what you
already have and what you have will grow. Gratitude is EXTREMELY
are FAR more powerful than negative ones, so there is NOTHING to fear.
If focusing on
healing an ailment or disease, don't automatically
expect the healing to be a direct result of the meditation, although it
sometimes can be. Everybody and everything is an interconnected One,
and your meditations/prayer may be answered by a health product or book
appearing in your life. It may be answered by a person saying a
particular thing to you. It may even manifest in the form of a sudden
inner revelation, inspiration, idea or epiphany. It's a simple matter
of being open to all possibilities and taking action the
present themselves. The mind of the individual cannot see the endless
and infinite possibilities of the universe. Let the truth reveal ITSELF
in whatever form it presents itself.
What's Done Is Done So Let It Go
cannot possibly place guilt or blame upon ourselves for something we
were not aware of so please use past "errors" to learn and grow from,
and NOT to feel bad about. The key to growth is to LEARN from the past
so as to improve our present circumtances, and our present
circumstance means nothing because it's based upon what we USED to be
aware of. As long as we learn from our "mistakes" the negatives will
always turn into positives. ALWAYS keep this in mind! So right now
we're learning to manifest things purposefully but the major point to
grasp is that it's actually happening at all times whether we are aware
of it or not. Both our conscious and subconscious thoughts are creating
our individual realities. Which means that there is no such thing as a
co-incidence, accident, random event, miracle, fluke, luck, or chaos.
Everything is the sole creation of the individual. Everything that
happens to an individual, positive or negative, is the result of their
own past actions, choices, thoughts, emotions, feelings and intentions,
either in this life, or in past ones. "What goes around, comes around",
"you reap what you sow", "everything comes full circle", "the ebb and
flow", "balance in the universe", "the law of attraction" or "karma" is
in effect 100% of the time. How would it be possible for it
in effect only some of the time? Likes attract likes. Whatever
yourself to BE, you attract more of, to you. So basically, each of us
is a magnet. There can be no outside "cause" for anything. There are
effects of one's own choices and thought processes. It's important to
realize that sometimes things manifest in the form of "group karma" as
well. There is now science to back this up but we won't get into Quantum
Theory or Applied
at the moment. Right
now it's going to be up to YOU to put that cloud experiment to practice
so that you can verify all of this for YOURSELF.
Just How Easy It Is
we have to do is start taking notice of the random negative
subconscious thoughts, and then let them go by adopting the positive
instead. How do we know what is Negative
or Positive? Normally
when people aren't aware of this information, the thoughts in their
head are all over the place, flip-flopping back and forth between what
they want and don't want. Whatever thoughts/intentions are the most
dominant will be the ones that manifest. If you doubt that your
meditations/intentions are creating what you want,
you've stopped the creation process. This is how the physical universe
OF COURSE it's working. Believe to the point of KNOWING that it's
working, and it will. Just don't put a time restriction on it. It'll
happen when it's ready to happen. Choose to be happy at all times,
despite life's circumstances, hold the positive intentions, or forget
about them completely, and they will come to be.

What Creates What
"I can't afford it", "I don't have the money", "I'm too busy", "there's
no time", "I have <blank> disease", "I need
<blank>", "I can't <blank>", "I don't like
<blank>", "I hate <blank>", etc., are
creating MORE of that exact physical
reality for the individual. This is the ONLY reason "the rich get
richer and the poor get poorer". Focusing on a lack of something will
create a lack of something. Focusing on happiness and completion will
create happiness and completion. Every individual and their "outside"
life circumstances are a perfect reflection of their state of mind and
what they choose to allow to go on inside their head. The ONLY
limitations that exist are the ones we create for ourselves with our
limited perceptions, ways of thinking, and lack of understanding of how
the universe ACTUALLY works.
The Secret Movie
an excellent movie that can't be recommend highly
enough that explains all of this, and much more, including some of the
behind it. The movie is called "The Secret" and it can be watched
online for the same price as a movie rental, or the DVD can be bought
from the website for $29.99US. It's worth every penny. The change it
brings to one's life is worth FAR more than that. After
all, money comes easily and frequently, IF you believe that it does.
Life is full of INFINITE abundance and opportunities, IF you believe
that it is. Life
unfolds in perfect harmonious order, IF you believe that it does. There
may be bumps along the road but that's nothing more than past karma.
The Potentiality of Nothingness
is manifested/existing physically unless there is an observer/mind
watching and taking part. EVERYTHING is pure potentiality. There is a
POTENTIAL for something to exist physically. From the infinite
potentiality of the Unmanifest, comes
the Manifest. From Non-Existence comes Existence. From "Nothing" comes

you're interested in putting this to work in
your life, the key is to read this article over and over again until it
all sinks in DEEPLY into the subconscious. If on the other hand you're
not at all interested in any of this information, hopefully you didn't

Advanced Meditation &
the highest levels, meditation is used to focus on the stillness
and silence that precludes all individual will, intentions,
desires, wants, "needs", emotions, thoughts, ideas, concepts, and
thinking. This is for
the purpose of letting the Truth with a capital "T", become us. Without
our minds interfering, everything just IS, nothing more and nothing
less, and it's the words, ideas, concepts, thoughts and thinking of the
mind that keeps us from realizing we are ALREADY the Truth that is
beyond the concept of "Is". This level of meditation is generally only
for the very few who seek Enlightenment, or the truths of the universe,
or their true nature as All of Existence. This step is for those who
seek absolute and permanent completion, wholeness, perfection, peace,
happiness, joy, bliss, etc. It's for those who wish to serve the
world/universe in the highest possible way. It's for those who want to
let go of the little self; the me, myself & I, which is the
of all problems and suffering. Purposefully creating with
thought is one goal, while moving beyond thought totally is a
different goal altogether. One helps us cope with this physical world,
while the other takes us beyond it. One perpetuates individual karma
(positive & negative), while the other frees us of it
"The part always has
a tendency to reunite with its whole in order to escape from its
imperfection." - Leonardo DaVinci
of ANY kind is an illusion created by our limited physical senses and
ways of thinking. All is One, which is Self, which just Is.
