Effortless meditation

I came across this post by Peter Russell recently. He is someone who has spent a significant part of his life exploring consciousness. Like me, he started out using Transcendental Meditation techniques, and moved on, sampling other approaches until he found an effortless meditation technique.

I find this intriguing, as it parallels my own journey. Somehow, almost as a natural process I found myself discarding most meditation ‘techniques’ and just sitting/lying down to meditate. Now, I just allow meditation to happen. Continue reading

10% Happier

This post from Peak Memory says virtually all I would want to say, except that I haven’t actually read the book, but really like the no-nonsense and pragmatic approach that Dan Harris takes in his video.
We all suffer from the voice in the head- and this video/book confirms what I have long known, that meditation can moderate that significantly.
Enjoy!

I just finished reading 10% Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-Help That Actually Works–A True Story, by Dan Harris, a book suggested to me by my brother.

This is a great book, a case for meditation without the hype. There is evidence that meditation has real benefits and Harris does a good job of explaining how he came to the practice and why you should give it a try. The book also includes an interesting look into the office politics of television news

Meditation – a protective blanket for humanity? Part 2

Clare Palgrave Meditation and energy therapy- fractalFor the first part of this article, see here.

In the previous part of this article I discussed my understanding that a consciousness blanket had been built by hermits, recluses and spiritual ‘seekers’ over hundreds of years, which allowed us to access higher levels of consciousness and energies than we would otherwise easily access.

I want to elaborate on this. The first question that you may be asking is: how did these recluses gain access to these higher levels of consciousness – those that we do not normally experience? I have come to understand that they were able to clear the veils of many of our human belief systems, by a diligence in clearing their thought processes and allowing themselves to become a vehicle to connect with higher level intelligence.

Meditation – a protective blanket for humanity? Part 1

Fractal image for Clare Palgrave meditation and energy therapyHave you ever wondered what the many, many hermits, recluses and spiritual ‘seekers’, closeted around the world and meditating regularly, were actually contributing? I certainly have! In fact it has been a key question for me for many years.

On the one hand I wanted to believe that their meditation was not in vain, but was building something very positive, just not tangible. On the other hand, despite my attraction to a life of seclusion and contemplation, my western mind-set would not allow me to accept that such an activity could be productive. Continue reading

I can’t meditate! – Really?

Have you sometimes said that meditation isn’t for you – that you have tried it – and not experienced anything different?

When I first started meditating I had that experience sometimes. I would sit down, and use my mantra (as that was the style of meditation I had learned) and I would keep coming back to my mantra when I discovered that I had been rambling off on all sorts of ‘irrelevancies’. But, I never felt refreshed, or clearer at the end of 20 minutes, that is, if I managed to stick it out for 20 minutes. I guess, because sometimes I can be quite dogged, and also because I really did need to get myself more emotionally stable, I kept at it, and finally found I was becoming a lot more balanced.

Meditation for insight

Meditating regularly allows us to gain insight in our busy lives.

How often have you said: I don’t have time to ………. (fill in the blanks yourself)?

In our busy lives we try to cram more and more into our waking hours. Rarely do we take the time to sit down for a few minutes to sort out what is important and what isn’t. If we were able to take some quality time with ourselves then, once we had got the shopping list of  ‘to do items’ out of the way, we can then gain insight into what are really the essentials.
