Keeping things simple

Meditation Tip

Can you imagine the stillness and quiet of being a cow in a paddock?

keeping things simple
No lists of things to do, no difficult people to try and please, and nothing to do but eat!

Are you someone who complicates things – I am. So my meditation practices help me to keep things simple. They calm my mind, they unwind the tension that has built up, and they connect me to something greater than myself.

Abdominal Deep Breathing

Deep Abdominal Breathing

 

Are you fearful when you hear of family and friends with cancer? It is such a scary disease.

Today I want to share with you a technique that may protect you from this common disease.

Nobel Prize winner, Dr. Otto Warburg from the Institute of Cell Physiology says:

“Deep breathing techniques increase oxygen to the cells and are the most important factors in living a disease-free and energetic life. When cells get enough oxygen, cancer will not and cannot occur”

 

Deep abdominal breathing

This will relax you as well as improve the levels of oxygen getting to your brain and other organs.

Sit or stand and take 10 long, slow, deep breaths and allow your tummy to expand with an intake of breath and return to normal on the outward breath. Can you try this now?


Deep abdominal breathing benefits:
  • More oxygen into your brain
  • Improved lymphatic drainage
  • Relaxing
  • Some stress starts to drop away
  • Improved lung function

When I teach abdominal breathing in my meditation classes I get people to lie down. While this is not essential it can help to really relax you.

Here are some instructions:

 

Do you want to lower your stress and improve your health?

I recommend doing 10 rounds of abdominal breathing every morning and last thing at night. It will lower your stress levels and help you to get a restful night’s sleep.

We’d love to hear how you go and if you have any questions.

 

Stay with your focus

Meditation Tip

In meditation we visit parts of ourselves that are unknown. Do not be concerned if at times you feel uncomfortable. Stay with your focus and the discomfort will pass. Something will replace it. And it may be a sense of deep and abiding peace.

Stay with your focus

Are you on an inner journey?

Are You on an Inner Journey?

Meditation takes us on an inward journey. To peace, calm and happiness. But these are not the goal: the goal is focussing the mind and training the mind to be less reactive. However it is lovely to be able to experience deep calm at times along the way.

Tapping Out the Cortices

This morning I returned from an interview feeling stressed. I noticed when I got home I couldn’t settle to the many tasks in front of me. So it is timely that I share with you one of the most powerful techniques that I have ever learned. It will help to relax you and will clear stress physically from the body, leaving the mind and emotions more settled as well.

It is a simple Brain Tapping technique called Tapping Out the Cortices.

It will

  • balance the left and right sides of the brain
  • improve brain function
  • improve the communication between the brain and the cells of the body
  • clear stress from the body and mind

Dr John Veltheim an Australian chiropractor and acupuncturist designed this technique to improve brain function as part of The BodyTalk System of Healthcare. This system is now being taught in 3 European universities.

This Brain Tapping technique is used by paramedics as soon as they reach a crash site in Europe as it stops a person from going into shock.

So please do yourself a favour and try this.

We’d love to hear how you go and if you have any questions.

Happy Tapping!
