My Survival Guide to Meditation

Lately, I have been reading a lot about the power of meditation.  Medical science is even getting involved, conducting extensive research regarding the effects of meditation on the human body.  After hearing and seeing all about meditation this and meditation, I decided to give it a try.  I had no idea what I was getting involved in. 

What I learned…

1. There is no specific way to position yourself to meditate.

                When you see pictures of people meditating all you see are people sitting cross legged with their eyes closed.  Well cross legged doesn’t work for everyone.  If I sit cross legged for too long I can’t focus on anything but my legs going to sleep.  Meditation can be done siting in a comfortable chair or even lying down, just as long as you can actually meditate and not take a small nap.  There is even something called walking meditation, which as you can imagine, can be done while taking a stroll.  Do what works best for you.

2.  What the hell with clearing your mind?

                If you visit any meditation center you hear someone inevitably say, “Clear your mind. If any thoughts come to your mind don’t focus on them and let them go.” WELL, speaking from personal experience, easy to say hard to do.  The reality is that they are not really telling you that your mind won’t think. Your brain is a muscle that has to be worked with and conditioned.  What would happen to your gut if you let it have all it wants?  After a while you would have some beautiful flabby love handles that you would have to deal with.  Well, the same goes with your brain!  Up to know you have let it do whatever it wants; do you think it will let you know tell it what to do?  Hell NO!  Like your gut your brain will not give up control without a fight.  When the thoughts start to enter your mind PAY ATTENTION!  I actually had a note book where I wrote what came to mind.  Why?  Well these are all programs that your mind has established to make you fall back into the same patterns of thinking and living.  Once you realize the program, when you are living your everyday life you can stop yourself from falling in the same patters.  That’s what makes meditation work; you awaken to the programed you and find ways to change yourself. 

3.  You have to sit still.

                Well, being an energy healer as I am, I like to move the frequencies when I feel that it is becoming stuck in one area.  Meditation is a practice that can be altered to fit all types of lifestyles and bodies.  If you have problems with hyperactivity, get a wobble chair, allow you mind to wonder and release as you lower have is rotating on the chair.  Dance to clear your mind and release tension, then follow it with 5 min sitting on a chair breathing deeply and letting go.  Breathe deeply and make a decision that you will feel peace flowing through you as you are in nature, ground yourself for 5 minutes that walk.  This is your practice, don’t let anyone tell you it has to be done in a specific way.  I have found that because I allowed myself to make meditation my own, now I can sit for 30 minutes to a few hours to find my peace. 

Conclusion…

Meditation is not a daunting act that can only be done if you have time to waste sitting for hours at a time.  Meditation is something that should be started as a relaxation process and perfected into a state of mind.  The greatest meditators in the world started with a baby step.  Your baby step can be sitting for 5 minutes and writing down what came to mind in that time.  Try it; see how you can change your life by just keeping your mind shut for a few minutes. 

Try some or one of the things that I listed here, I know that it will change you because it has changed me.

STOP TAKING A HIT OF YOUR EMOTIONAL CRACK

Lately, I have been thinking about why people that have bad things happen to them continue to experience streaks of bad luck in their lives.  Why is it that the friends we have that tend to fall for the wrong person continues to have bad relationships?  Is it that these people enjoy living a life of misery or they just like the attention that they receive in having to carry so much drama?  What if I told you that the answer falls in the human body’s natural biology?  What if knowing the conditions that cause these patterned behaviors can help stop these negative cycles?

A little throwback to high school biology…

The human body is an intelligent machine that functions to conserve life and help it thrive.  Because the human body’s number one concern is to conserve life, it has acquired many different survival programs that run on a loop.  One of these programs is the fight or flight program.  This program is amazing! Your body, when facing a threat, let’s just say you are being chased by an armed person, in a manner of seconds turns off your brain and stomach and sends massive amounts of energies to your legs, arms, and heart. You have 2 choices, you can run or fight.  Well something else that your body does is release an amazing hormone called Adrenaline from your adrenal glands. This hormone gives you the extra oomph you need, like Pac-Man’s power pellets, to move and take action.

Another amazing feature that is found in the human brain is an enlarged frontal lobe.  Well, among a lot of other features, we acquired the ability to use our brain to think through situations and find solutions.  The funny thing is that your body doesn’t know the difference between something that you are thinking and something you are doing.  For example, you have a problem with a family member and to avoid that problem you avoid the family member. Problem solved, right? WRONG, now there’s a family get together and you have to see that person again. Before you see that family member again you run through a mental movie reliving the problem, how you will behave while at the get together and everything you will say to that family member if they mention anything to you.  That’s your mind but now your body starts going through the program of fight of flight. WAIT WHAT!? It’s not really happening, that doesn’t make sense. Well, like I said before, you have a large frontal lobe that works like a simulation program.  You are experiencing a virtual reality simulation and your body is doing what it has learned to do.

So, what does any of this have to do with emotional crack?

When a person is addicted to anything, the body does the same thing.  It gets the initial experience, your body releases chemicals, and you feel good and continue your life like nothing happed.  Fast forward a few days later and…something happens you feel down your body says “Hey remember how good it felt the last time we did that? If we do it again, we will feel happy and your life goes back to normal.” So, you do it again but it doesn’t feel the same. Now what, you do more and it feels better and it becomes a cycle.

Those chemical reactions from the addiction can be a large variety. The end result is always the same, a feeling of gratification and peace of mind. What if I told you that adrenaline is very addicting also.   If we are addicted to adrenaline we can become addicted to the thing that makes the adrenaline release. 

The ending…

Emotional crack is caused by the release of the fight or flight hormone. Every time that emotion is triggered adrenaline courses through the body.  Blood pumps harder, the body feels stronger and a feeling of pleasure triggers a new program.  The program causes the increased of adrenaline and the need for the same situations to feel that high. 

The thing is adrenaline has some very funny side effects. Adrenaline causes anxiety, apprehensiveness, restlessness, tremor, weakness, dizziness, sweating, palpitation, nausea, vomiting, headaches and respiratory difficulties. Another thing to consider is the effects of the fight or flight response has on your body.  If you are not supplying blood to your stomach, how can you digest food?  If you are not supplying blood to your brain, how can you think clearly?

The point of this whole article is to explain that like any other addiction; you too can be free of the addiction to your own programed emotions.  You don’t have to constantly relive the same stories or experiences in your life.  It will not be easy, you will back slide, but it doesn’t matter how many times you fall off the horse what matters is how many times you are willing to get back on. You emotional crack is caused by what you have learned and like amazing humans that we are, you care learn something new.
