Re: A Study on Meditation - good stuff


I'm using a mantra right now, rubbing the EFT finger spots while I say it:

"Every day, my body gets stronger, slimmer and healthier."

And when I say it, I can feel myself stand taller and feel happier. Feel free to use that mantra yourself.

Another fascinating article on how meditation (called "Quiet Time") can make a difference. This time in a school environment:

Re: A Study on Meditation - good stuff



Mantra of any kind will focus your mind - pulling thought to a single point instead of letting it fly around all over, as is usual, will help with nearly any aspect of life. Pain is a signal that is made worse by the random action of thoughts. Centre those thoughts and you will minimise the pain. It works because you are controlling the amount of nerves being used to send the pain signal. Pain is not real, in any way, it is a creation of the body, to signify damage. Because of this we can limit the signal by centring thereby lessening the pain. Not magic, but science.



[sign in to see URL] have so much pain from the bone spurs along my spine. I do meditate and [sign in to see URL]'s the only way I can fall asleep, without massive painkillers.
But I have yet found a way to do this while [sign in to see URL] every movement of my body as a whole, moves some part of my spine, and most often the nerves are going crazy.... emoticon

Hello, Queeny.

Focus within your self. Cut all of the outside out, just get into you. When everything is focused inside you, move you painful part, and focus on the signal of that pain. Somewhere within your mind you will see an array of light, often green, or red, it will radiate from the point of pain. Focus on that light, and turn them off, one by one.
I am very used to this, and can turn all of them off easily. With them all turned off, be careful. you cannot feel the damage, so could make it worse, but even one ray of pain operating will protect from further harm, it just won't hurt any where near as much.

Re: A Study on Meditation - good stuff


Oh bless you, Muladzh! I shall give that a try. I had the hardest time, because as I'm working, so many things are happening on the outside that it is hard to concentrate. Often times my Mom is there to "keep my company"...chattering away.
I'm okay, like last year when Dad needed the inside of his garage [sign in to see URL] put my ipod in my pocket, with my meditation/Pagan music on, ear buds in and concentrated on the pain, soon the pain was 'throbbing' in tune with the music. That is the only way I can describe it, but then I was able to "turn down the pain"... emoticon
But when Mom there talking or Dad or [sign in to see URL]'s very hard to concentrate.

[sign in to see URL] love how you explained it and I shall practice in my own yard, and house when I can be alone in my [sign in to see URL] I can get good enough to do what you said, quickly, even with distractions. emoticon

Re: A Study on Meditation - good stuff


Still doing my morning meditation.

This morning, it really helped a lot. I felt upset and unsettled, thoughts rushing around.

And 15 min later, with some guiding words and a Sanskrit mantra, I felt much better. I know this is not "real" meditation, at least not like it's taught in Tibet or so, but it's a big help in my life, and I'm glad I have this meditation series to work with.

I miss my meditation time. I Used to do it in the mornings before Willa woke up but Mexia is a morning baby. I should work it back in. I surely need it!

Re: A Study on Meditation - good stuff


I have a large kidney stone making life awkward right now, I am just about keeping above this pain, but it is difficult. I learned at the hospital, that the pain from such stones is more than any other situation or condition. This ain't nice at all, and I have to wait until my cough is gone, before they can go mining.

All the best, Muladzh. Have you tried tapping? I used that to keep above the pain from my broken collarbone.
