Practice of Meditation - Spiritual Practice/s -Doingness
the practice is just this- a practice. The technique or techniques,
the disciplines. Just like keys on a piano, notes in music, playing
scales or bar work in dance. The practice helps you learn the ability.
One plays the keys to then play the song. One does the bar work to be
able to more easily flow with the dance. The practice is to remind you
the truth of who you are and to be able to better align or attune to
this and live this more and more consistently and continually. We learn
via practicing We practice to live it
Meditative State (of being) - Beingness
This state is called your True Nature, as it is you. Your true nature,
divine nature is inherent. You are a spiritual being; therefore you
don’t have to “try and be spiritual” you can not be
“spiritual” Oneness….. A sense of connectedness….
A knowing, feeling and sensing of the subtle energy of the All That
Is. An awareness of this no matter what is going on around you or no
matter what fleeting states of being or emotion. An awareness and responding
from your True Nature. Expanded consciousness
Living & Being from the I Am - ---- I Am That That I Am
for Stress Release
breath is a wonderful tool for relaxation and it is free. It is said
that when the breath is steady the mind is calm. The next time you are
feeling rushed or stressed over some situation try this exercise; better
yet, try this exercise for 21 days and notice how you change your overall
attitude in life. Take about 10 minutes for yourself, go somewhere where
you can have some quite time. Now get in a comfortable relaxed position.
Allow yourself to take this time to focus on relaxation and rejuvenation.
Close your eyes. Now with your inner gaze focus on the heart –
lung area of your body and begin to slow your breath down. Allow your
breath to slow down. Now begin to breathe in for a count of 3, lightly
hold for a count of 3, and exhale slowly all the way out for a count
of 3. Allow yourself to breathe all the way into your stomach-abdomen
area. Do this 5 or 6 times. Now allow your breath to go back to its
natural rhythm and simply watch your breath. Notice how you feel. Focus
on each inhalation and each exhalation. If any thoughts come in your
mind, simply bring your focus back to your breath. Now see how much
more calm and relaxed your are. You can now decide to live in a relaxed
and healthy way, And, like anything else practice makes perfect.
Take 10-15 minutes for yourself.
Allow yourself to sit or lie down in a comfortable relaxed position.
Close your eyes.
Focus your inner vision on the heart-lung area of your body and just
notice your breath.
Notice how you are breathing.
Notice how you are feeling.
Allow yourself to breathe a little deeper, letting the exhalation be
a little longer that the inhalation.
Make sure as you are breathing now more slowly that you are relaxing
the muscles in your head, neck and shoulders.
Breathe slowing in a relaxed manner, without tensing your muscles or
trying to force yourself to breathe deeper.
Now, begin to breathe in for the count of three, lightly hold
for a count of three, and breathe out for a count of three.
And one more time breathe in for a count of three, lightly hold for
a count of three, and breathe out for a count of three.
As you are now feeling more relaxed, allow your breath to go into its
own natural rhythmic pattern.
Allow each inhalation to bring in peace, calm and relaxation, and allow
each exhalation to release tension and stress.
Notice how you are calm, center and focused inside
From this state, bring your awareness to the top of your head and just
notice how you feel.
From this detached, calm and centered state you can begin your day,
or relax your mind to end your day with peace and clarity.
