Meditation Is Easier Than You Think!

Click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comNo doubt you’ve heard of the many benefits of meditation, both physical and spiritual. But how does one start a meditation practice? It doesn’t have to be intimidating. According to the Zen master and teacher, Shunryu Suzuki, approaching meditation with a beginner’s mindset is actually ideal.

It’s important to clear up a common misperception about meditation. Meditation is not simply ‘thinking of nothing.’ Rather it is a spiritual process in which we learn to center, breathe, and achieve clarity.

Meditation is practiced by cultures all over the world and does not have to be associated with a specific spiritual tradition or religious belief system. It also does not have to involve sitting passively with a ‘blank mind.’ Rather it can be anything from coloring mandalas, to a walking in nature.

So, how does one begin, if you’re new to the practice? Consider the goals you wish to achieve with meditation: stress reduction, taming your thoughts, physical relief from pain, spiritual growth? Tailor your practice to build toward your personal goals. Remember, it’s a journey and not a destination.

Keeping a meditation journal, as you go along, can be very helpful. The most important thing is consistency. Make meditation a part of your daily routine, and ideally at the same time each day.

Once you have the basics in place, it’s time to begin. Choose a pose or stance which is comfortable, and a space which is calming, private and quiet. If playing comforting music or lighting candles, or incense, relaxes you, then do that!

Mastermind Manifesting

click for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comWe all love to create. That’s what we’ve come here to do. One of my favorite processes for manifesting is a type of ‘mastermind’ visualization exercise, which I have used successfully for over 30 years.

I discovered this technique decades ago at a Unity Church event, where my mentor, Jack, demonstrated many spiritual practices during a weekend retreat. The one that stood out I still use to this day, and even teach to others, adding my own spin to it.

The concept is similar to author Napoleon Hill’s concept of a  mastermind group. In his books, Hill discussed the idea of the ‘mastermind,’ which referred to two or more people coming together in harmony to solve problems.

It’s a very powerful practice, because many people around the world are using this process, or a similar one, which connects us and supports our visions. It’s a short process, it’s fun and I know you will enjoy it.

Originally it was done in a group, in a quiet space. As you would in meditation, we would close our eyes and hold an image or situation we want to manifest, along with also holding the visions of the other people in the room. You can do this on your own at home, but still co-create with other people all around the planet. You will be holding and building up the energy of their vision too, as they are for you.

To begin, relax in a chair, with your feet touching the ground, and close your eyes. Take a deep breath in through you nose and breathe out though your mouth. Continue to focus on your breath and relax your body until you are ready to proceed.

Meditation Is Much Easier Than You Think!

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comMeditation is one of the best things a person can do for their spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical health. The National Institute for Health, as well as the Mayo Clinic have published articles on their websites touting the well-researched benefits of this ancient spiritual practice.

All the major religions practice some form of meditation. However, meditation itself is not just a religious practice. The good news is, if you practice religion, meditation is a tool you can use. If you are non-religious, meditation is also a tool you can use.

So, why don’t more people meditate? Because they have a misconception about what meditation is, and how to do it. Many people think meditation means sitting in a lotus position while chanting, and not having a thought at all in your mind. While sitting in a lotus position and chanting is one way to meditate, it is not the only way. Furthermore, having no thoughts in your mind at all for an extended period is in fact not possible.

Meditation is about relaxation, attention, and focus. It is about recognizing the smallness that we and our problems are in the grand scheme of things, and conversely, remembering the infinite greatness that is our energetic being, as well as the Infinite Greatness we are a part of. This can be done in many ways.

Religion, Superstition And Personal Spiritual Practice

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comReligion is not only a codified system of beliefs, it also includes rituals that some might label as superstitions. The difference between belief and superstition is experience. If you experience something it is a reality, for you, and you will believe it. If you don’t experience it, then it is only hearsay and without proof you don’t necessarily believe it. However, you might still engage in it, because you were ‘told’ it is true. The latter usually applies to religion. Sound familiar?

Superstitions are the building blocks of present day religions. People tithe the church, for example, because they were told that is what God expects and they will be rewarded with prosperity. Some people use guided meditations, or rituals and spells, to manifest what they want, without having any real experiences of feeling an energetic connection themselves.

Introduction To The Chakras

click here for a free reading at PsychicAccess.comThe chakras are energy vortexes or wheels of energy located throughout the body. They inter-penetrate our subtle energy body and weave together with the layers of our auric field. The word chakra originates from ancient Sanskrit and it basically means ‘spinning wheel.’

There are seven main chakras and each are associated with one of the spectrum colors. Each chakra color is a natural etheric light that shine from within us, and I like to think of them as the colors of the rainbow. Each chakra regulates certain organs in the body, and also governs certain areas of our life.

Just like everything else that needs cleansing, like our houses and cars, our chakras also need clearing and purification, so they can spin and shine at optimal frequencies.

Psychic Protection 101

Click photo for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comIt is recommended to begin all spiritual activities, meditations, intuitive development exercises, as well as energy or healing work, with a basic psychic protection routine. A well-designed grounding, centering and shielding meditation or visualization exercise will create a solid safeguard and meditative energy foundation for any kind of spiritual practice session.

Centering is the process of anchoring and centralizing your inner, non-physical being within your physical body, while grounding (or earthing) refers to strengthening or reaffirming your connection with physical reality, the secular world and planet Earth.

Centering and grounding is therefore aimed at stabilizing yourself energetically, by firmly setting a mindful, harmonious balance between your body and soul, between the spiritual and the secular, between the physical and the metaphysical. Being grounded and centered is to feel safe and securely anchored in the physical world, while opening up to increased energy flow, and metaphysical or spiritual input. Continue reading

Journey To The Isle Of Avalon

Click photo for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.com

The Isle of Avalon is a mythical place of healing, psychic learning, crafting, and the life and times of King Arthur. Figures such as Morgan Le Fay, King Arthur and Merlin the Magician are just a few legendary names associated with this Holy Isle. Though no longer here in the physical world, Avalon is still accessible through the inner worlds by way of  meditation or immrama, an Irish-Welsh word meaning ‘spiritual journey on the astral plane.’

Avalon was known as training ground for priestesses who dedicated their life to spirituality, and to the Great Mother Goddess. These women trained in the arts of clairvoyance, herbalism, weaving and devotion to the Divine feminine. Continue reading
