Meditation TIPS Part 2: Mantras – Sing Your Way to Happiness!
I hope you are all well and that you enjoyed my last vlog on meditation and the I-We-All.
Today, my video blog shares an example of how to use a mantra. I’ll then share some news from my life, and suggest a great movie I think most of you who love both music and spiritual development will really enjoy.
Meditation TIPS Part 2: Mantras!
Throughout time, human beings have chanted mantras as a means of centering and harmonizing themselves, both as a unit, and as a means of reaching higher states of consciousness.
Monks have known about harmonic fields and information fields, and have been having intimate experiences of connecting to each other since long before science could produce objective explanations for their experiences.
The earth contains many harmonic fields that are expressions of the earth’s electromagnetic field, as well as fields created by a multitude of sources of vibrational energy, such as light and sound frequencies.
Rupert Sheldrake, a famous biologist also showed that there are morphogenic fields (informative fields that carry species specific information).
Cymatics is a term that describes investigations to the nature of vibration and how it affects matter.
Wikipedia describes cymatics as:
Cymatics (from Greek: κῦμα “wave”) is the study of visible sound co vibration, a subset of modal phenomena. Typically the surface of a plate, diaphragm, or membrane is vibrated, and regions of maximum and minimum displacement are made visible in a thin coating of particles, paste, or liquid. Different patterns emerge in the excitatory medium depending on the geometry of the plate and the driving frequency.
When we speak, sing; shout…we are producing living sound vibrations that have an energetic influence on both matter, and the space around us.
Our thoughts resonate with the mental field, our emotions the astral or emotional field, and our actions on the physical realm.
By knowing how to access a given song-line, Aboriginals with special training are able to communicate to neighboring and distant tribes, getting messages to them in much the same way you now get messages by electronic transfer (all based on frequencies), but long before electronics was even a thought in our creative minds.
In my video blog today, Vidya, Angie and I share how a simple mantra can be used to harmonize yourself, and create the state of joy within yourself that you want to experience, and share with the world.
The words to the mantra I created for myself sometime ago, that we are singing today are:
I Am Happy
I Am Healthy
I Am Whole
I (we) share my love wherever I (we) go.
Neither Angie, Vidya, or I are “singers”, but “we love to sing and chant!”
The first step to enjoying this powerful form of meditation (which is also a great way to warm-up for other types of meditation), is not to be critical of yourself.
The whole practice is about letting go of “what you don’t want”… “fear”…and creating what you do want within yourself.
Through vibrational resonance, when we chant a mantra, we share ourselves with all others chanting the same mantra, now, in the past, and in the future.
Therefore, when we get a bunch of people (the more the better) chanting the same mantra, we create an information field in which we experience resonance with all others who have contributed.
This allows us to experience the love and life-force of all those who are also sharing the same values, and willingness to grow and express themselves out of love for others and life itself.
When you act out of love for self and other, love is experienced by self and other; love is the impetus, and the product.
Being fearful of what others think only traps you in a resonant field with all the other fearful, often criticizing people of the world, stifling your creative impulse.
Just have fun with it!
Why not get the whole family chanting your own “family mantra”!
For those of you interested in meditation techniques that work well for busy minds, or inexperienced meditators, I share seven of my favorite active meditations on my audio titled “Dr. Quiet,” which is a companion audio for my e-book, The Last 4 Doctors You’ll Ever Need – How To Get Healthy Now!
I hope you enjoy my shorter, less technical, and fun video blog today.
The White Egret – A Valentines Day Surprise!
Penny and I have lived in my Vista, CA. home for ten years now, and are quite familiar with all the local animal and bird life.
Valentines Day morning, just after we’d exchanged Valentines gifts, I headed to the back of my house to read on my patio. I had just sat down, looked up, and saw this very big and beautiful White Egret right next to my water charger dancing beautifully – making its body go in waves up and down like a snake moves.
I was really blown away because White Egrets usually only hang out near bodies of water, and I’ve never seen one on or near our land.
I had a sense it was probably attracted to the strong vibrational frequencies generated by my stone water charger, which has five gallons of Palomar Mountain Spring water inside of it.
Since I go out there all the time and let my body move to the energy frequencies of the charger, I recognized the wavy movements right away; could be a coincidence, but a beautiful one.
The White Egret let us take a couple photos, but then flew away toward the ocean. We all thought it was such an amazing “Valentines gift” from Mother Nature.
Well, that’s it for my blog and vlog today.
I hope you all have a lovely, productive, and balanced week.
I look forward to sharing more with you next week.
Love and chi,
