It helps to create a space for yourself to meditate daily. When you create a special space and time to do this,you are letting go and connecting to beauty, positive thoughts, and grace. You are listening to the beauty of silence and quieting down all rumblings in your mind and focusing on the positive. The more that you go within the more that you begin to understand your true nature and the more joy and happiness you will receive in your life. While meditating in a state of gratitude for all blessings you are upping your own personal prana or chi and bringing your body into a state of balance and peace.

There are many theories about energy. Hippocrates believed that the same vital force of energy flows through all things. He regarded the body as whole complete organism. He did not think of the body as independent parts. His thinking was that if there is a change in one part of an organism then that affects all of the other parts. The interdependence of the organism can applied to all living things. You can then understand how our energy can affect others.

Our culture has become the instant culture. Many eat instant foods and are rushing around and want instant results. That is why people take pills when they have a headache and many take diet pills to lose weight. Many lack the patience and fortitude to go through the process of improving their lifestyle and thoughts to manefest what they want in their life. Many stress themselves because they cannot play the waiting game.

By being an infinitely patient person and persuing your goals and dreams you realize that you are exactly where you need to be right now. Taking the pressure off yourself you persue your affairs of life with faith knowing that the outcome will be in alignment with your true self. You know that things that you are wishing for will come to fruition with the right attitude. You work toward your goals with the inner knowing that things will work out for you at the right time.

Positive Vibrations

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2008

Have you ever met someone and felt very comfortable around them immediately? If this was the case your intuition was able to detect the vibration that this person was emitting. For indeed every person projects some sort of vibration to those around them. Some people are so delightful and project a positive prana or chi that draws everyone to them. Then there are those people who are very negative and actually draw prana and chi from those around them. The reason for this is that there is power associated with every thought that a person has. It is very subtle but it is extremely powerful.

Every thought that you think has; weight, color, size, quality, and most of all power. An experienced meditator can detect this with his or her inner eye of intuition. For example, a spirtual thought will exude a beautiful yellow color and and a hateful or jealous thought will exude a dark red color. Keep in mind that you control your thoughts and your thoughts do not control you. It is not what happens in your life but your continued thoughts about the incident that can have a disastrous affects on your physical and emotional systems. By controlling negative thoughts and replacing them with hopeful relaxing thoughts you create a more balanced relaxing life.

Just like a lake, if your mind is clear and still you can see your true self, and receive many answers to life’s questions. The practice of meditation will help you to gain greater insights into the meaning and purpose of life. In meditation you break down any illusions you might have about life. You do away with any diversions and rationalizations that you might be feeding yourself. You reach the core of your being and find your connection to the universe.
