To really experience the benefits of meditation you need to be consistent.
Try to meditate each and every day. Remember, the more you can make it a routine the easier it becomes. Meditating at the same time and in the same place helps with re-training the brain. It will also give you a time you know you have all to yourself so you can look forward to it. Let your family know that this is your time and ask them not to disturb you while you are meditating.
Lately I’ve been feeling the pressure. Running a business involves an endless list of things to do. Is there ever really enough time in the day?
“But who writes your To-Do list?”, I hear you say. “Surely you can leave a few things off. It can’t be that hard.”
We all have sub-conscious programs that urge us to act a particular way. I believe that we all have approximately 60,000 programs that “run” us. The startling idea for me was that 45,000 of them were in place by age 7!!
Meditation and reflecting on life’s challenges can help us to understand and clear the programs that “control” us. Journaling and talking to other like-minded people can also help.
In terms of being an entrepreneur, I’m learning to be very practical and a bit more realistic, and doing my best to live in joy.
Listening to music can be a very soothing form of meditation. Of course the music needs to be something tranquil with no lyrics. Many people use classical music, particularly that of the Baroque period. Some of the popular composers from that period are: JB Bach, Vivaldi, Telemann and Pachelbel.
If you try meditating to music remember to really focus on LISTENING.
This means bringing your mind back to the music each time you notice it wandering.
It was my birthday last month and I turned 59. My age has never worried me before however I find that the idea of turning 60 has raised some uncomfortable feelings. I’ve taken the time reflecting on this. What I have realized is that my worry stems from my fear that I have less time to achieve my life purpose.
If you believe in reincarnation, as I do, then you may also believe that we each have a life purpose that we agreed to before we incarnated.
I wonder if mid-life crises are sometimes a way that people come to terms with the age-old questions:
Who am I? and
Why am I here?
These are very worthy questions to spend time mulling over. Scientific Hand Analysis gives insights to our Spiritual contract: those lessons and experiences that we agreed to fulfil before we arrived here.
The first thing to identify in your hand analysis reading is your Life School. This is your foundation. For example I am in the school of Service. I am always drawn to giving service and helping others. I find this very fulfilling.
The four schools are Service, Love, Wisdom and Peace. You will be in one or more of these. Each school has particular characteristics that inform how a person in that school can be out of mental and emotional balance. When you know what your school/s is you have a tool for recognising when you are out of balance.
For example, for those of us in the School of Service we need to avoid being in servitude. Sometimes School of Service people find themselves saying: “Well if I don’t do this job then no one else will. And it has to be done. So I have to do it.” But this approach builds resentment and unhappiness and can lead to ill-health.
My life purpose, as discovered by Scientific Hand Analysis is to be an author and speaker. Do you wonder what yours may be?

In meditation we are training our minds to focus.
But distractions are what our untrained minds crave. Thus if we are to succeed in our meditation practice we need to keep these distractions to a minimum.
So turn off the phone and the television.
Let your family members know that you are not to be disturbed.
Meditation is important enough for you to put everything else on hold for the time being.
When you do this you can begin the process of meditation, of mental training.
