Four (4) Meditation VIDEOs that I’ve been using…

…especially before “horizontalizing” (aka, bedtime). Three I have recently discovered, and the native American flute one, I’ve been using for several years.

As we go through these rather “turbulent change” times, I’m trusting that perhaps these will assist others, as they have assisted me. And I’m sure many have their own, and/or will feel free to “find their own”.

Meditating makes your brain quicker, say scientists (plus how to meditate)

Meditating makes your brain quicker, say scientists (plus how to meditate)

Article by Positive News Magazine

A study that examined the effects of meditation on the brain has confirmed what many who practice it have long suspected

Buddhist monks have been certain of it for centuries, while late adopters in the west have recently come around to the idea. Now US researchers have added scientific weight to the notion that daily meditation can make your brain quicker and improve your ability to concentrate.  

Researchers at Binghamton University, New York, used brain scans to see how practicing meditation for 10 minutes a day changed the cognitive behavior of 10 students.

Comparing scans from before and after the eight-week trial revealed that meditation led to faster switching between the brain’s two general states of consciousness: the ‘default mode network’, which is active when the brain is awake but not focused, such as during daydreaming; and the ‘dorsal attention network’, when the brain engages for attention-demanding tasks.

The results of the study, published in the journal Nature, demonstrated that after the meditation course, participants had better brain connections between — and within — the two networks.

“The findings indicate the potential effects of meditation on enhancing the brain capability of fast switching between mind wandering and focused attention and maintaining attention once in attentive states,” the study concluded.

The research came about following a chance conversation between two academics at the university: lecturer George Weinschenk, who is a proponent of meditation; and assistant professor Weiying Dai, who was skeptical about the benefits of meditation. Both from the university’s department of computer science.

“I told Weiying, ‘meditation really can have a transformative effect on the brain,’” Weinschenk said. “She was a little skeptical, especially about whether such a short amount of time spent learning how to meditate…would make any difference. She suggested we might be able to quantify such a thing with modern technology.”

Having used MRI scans to track Alzheimer’s disease in people, Dai suggested using the scans to observe changes in the brains of people who took up regular meditation. Weinschenk recruited 10 students, taught them how to meditate, and told them to practice for ten to 15 minutes per day, five times a week.

“The findings indicate the potential effects of meditation on enhancing brain capability”

With such a small number of people taking part in the trial, more research is needed. Nevertheless, the results have since persuaded Dai about the virtues of meditation. “I’m pretty convinced about the scientific basis of meditation after doing this study,” she said.

So much so, Dai is set to launch a new line of research to see whether regular meditation could help people with Alzheimer’s disease and autism. The two conditions have been linked to impairments in the dorsal attention network.

How to meditate

1) Find somewhere comfortable to sit

Sit in a chair with your feet flat on the floor, in a place where you won’t be disturbed. You could also choose to sit cross-legged on the floor, kneel, or even lie down — all are fine, as long as you can stay in the position comfortably for 10 minutes. You might wish to use a timer so that you know when to finish.

2) Focus on your breathing 

Close your eyes and bring your attention to your body, taking a moment to notice any physical sensations and emotions. Now place your attention on your breath, following it in and out. You might notice your breath at your nostrils, or the rising and falling sensation in your belly, for example. If your mind wanders, as it inevitably will, gently bring your attention back to your breath. Avoid judging yourself when doing this; once you realize you are caught in thinking, simply let the thoughts go and return your attention back to your breath each time.

3) Begin the rest of your day

When 10 minutes have passed, gently open your eyes. Pause for a moment to notice your surroundings, including any sounds or smells. Notice how you feel. Then continue with your day.

Meditation for Afghanistan every 4 hours

From our friends at We Love Mass Meditation:

Followed by US’ withdrawal from Afghanistan after 20 years, the country has been captured by Taliban completely over the past few days.

This has happened much quicker than most people would expect.

 

https://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/en/news-page/world/kabul-falling-to-taliban-us-failure-worse-than-saigon-us-intel-totally-incompetent

 

 

Afghan army has crossed border and escaped into Iran to flee Taliban onslaught.

There are reports that President Ashraf Ghani has left Kabul and was flown to Tajikistan.

https://www.rt.com/russia/532163-afghanistan-ghani-fled-dough-rob/

This has created chaos in the country as residents are also trying to flee the country. There were also huge queues emerged at banks in Kabul as residents attempted to empty their accounts.

On Monday, August 16th, Taliban has started seizing weapons from civilians and those in the security profession.
Although Taliban has promised that Afghan women will not be deprived of work opportunities or education when the militant group comes to power, it is not clear whether it will honor this.
Reports are emerging that women were absent from the city’s streets, adverts featuring women were whitewashed, and Western dress was replaced by traditional Afghan attire. There is also considerable concern as to whether young girls will return to school as the Islamist group enforces its rule over the country.
This is a sign of suppression of the Goddess energy, and the military group is threatening to take over the world.

this the land of wolves

pristine white cracks jagged sharp

a haloed hazen sun cuts a bitter cold brazen

bares a windswept sketch of sparkling crystals dancing nature’s vistas

endless blinding brilliance and stinging raw tamed within her engineered frame

deceiving perceptions not soft and easy to distant emerald forest domain

 

pristine white cracks jagged sharp

startling freshness vivid breathless rugged out of reach mountain peaks

these majestic scale an azure sky so severe blue dry soft cirrus dying to survive

a valley’s naked beauty so powerful formidable granting transcendent wordless awe

whereabouts does one place one a lonely moment panic peril she felt foresaw

pristine white cracks jagged sharp

a humility bowing straining attests to down-to-earth resolute nourished and maintained

i’ve done well to come so far gasping gasps so hard misleading such difficult terrain

emerald forest nearer shimmering there hope glimmers maybe not so far from home

still meters though in the thousands though belie such quick regard

 

pristine white cracks jagged sharp

pushing pushing patience her frosted breath rhythm one single step a time

note the stride perchance it be grass golden shooting free or perchance snow pristine white

cracking jagged sharp she foothill summits pausing perceiving paths backwards and remain

silence… broken heavy crust presents more smooth in thoughtful retrospect despite

 

 

faint bough breakings on occasion drift the gusty crystal laden wind

reminding her forward emerald forest exertions one last expanse and time

thereupon chancing on a chilling blood-soaked killing trail

false her comfort her reminisce forest ghosts stalk stealthily all and all of this

 

she falters, yes, between now and yes and somehow something else

fierce shrewd packs forest track traverse the crust ending ram and buck and many she doe dear

the apex predator able encircling the learned nimble once thought so carefully fraught with care

this the land of wolves a never again forgotten fear

According to Cobra, the Light Forces have communicated that energies of wars that were fought on the surface of the planet through millennia finally need to be healed, and souls still trapped in the war trauma released.

For this reason, Cintamani stones need to be planted in the positions of all main past battlefields:

https://www.britannica.com/topic/list-of-battles-2084178

Light Forces have also communicated that the timeline of Thirty Years War (1618-1648) needs to be healed, and Cintamani stones need to be placed into the key areas and battlefields of this war, as this was one of the most brutal conflicts in human history:

https://blogs.icrc.org/law-and-policy/2017/05/23/thirty-years-war-first-modern-war/

With this timeline node resolved, a lot of healing energy will be released on the surface of the planet.

It is also a good idea to plant Cintamani stones at Jesuit churches and universities.

You can help with this by purchasing Cintamani stones from the following website

http://www.cintamani.space/Cintamani.html

It is important for people to purchase Cintamani stones from a reliable source as they will have been tachyonized. Tachionization process drastically increases the efficiency of Cintamani stones.

Here are some guidelines on how a Cintamani stone should be planted:

Meditation from "The Cat’s" blog




This is one meditation I fully support.   No appeals to named and nameless goddesses, no talk of chimeras and toplet bombs and 144,000 sacred geometry.  Just a direct appeal to SOURCE.  Well done CATS!!!  I am in awe.  AND YES SOURCE HAS ENERGY IN ESCROW FOR HUMANITY, Heather’s work has addressed that many times, “Pre-paid, Pre-approved”.  


But I’d add the qualifier to the end of it “in body”. lol, but don’t overly fret about that Source knows your intentions.  I AM DONE!


 

SUPERSESSION

…with SOURCE. ~AM then did the following session last night for EVERYONE WHO WANTS IT — for today — to take advantage of the current eclipse/sun-moon energies. And if our dreams last night are any measure of its efficacy, it’s working. So, if the following is something you want, all you need do is go into meditation and think that you want it. You don’t have to tell us. In the Supersession, ~AM said:

We, and others of like mind, are done with the old world and ready to move on, and we’d like SOURCE to help us do this as soon as is possible. 


That’s it, we tried to keep it simple and broad. If this is something you’d like ~AM to have done for you too, just close your eyes, G+P+C, decide that that’s what you want too, and briefly meditate on it sometime today, 5/26/21. The energy is being held in escrow by SOURCE for you. We have no idea what the result will be. You can also of course do it the Allison Coe way, too.

And also this short video from Allison Coe referenced above… for the more ritually inclined folks…

A PRACTICE FOR THE ASCENSION DAY MAY THE 14th & 15th

Make this Practice during May the 14th and 15th. In preparation to the your Ascension.

At midnight previous to Ascension Day, ask the “Presence” to take you into the Heart of the Great Central Sun, and charge you with the full Ascended Master Consciousness of all the Ascension means to you.

At noon (12:00 o’clock) the following day, be quiet for half an hour or an hour, and give conscious recognition to your “Presence.” Ask It to see that you make your Ascension in this embodiment if possible. Ask your “Beloved I AM Presence” to give you the feeling of the Ascension.

  • During the time of giving recognition to the Beloved Master Jesus’ Ascension—from noon of the preceding day, Ascension Day, to noon on the day following—for three days try to live in the constant Call for the Cosmic Christ Victorious Accomplishment of the Ascension of every individual, the Nation, and the world. Demand the Cosmic Christ Power of the Mightiest Love in Creation, and call the Angelic Host who direct the Blue Flame to spread that Flame everywhere. Then mankind will feel the pull toward the Light; and thus raise the attention, until once again the Magnetic Pull from the Great Heights of Creation from whence all Life comes, draws upon the outer self, and it turns away from the misery of its own limitations through the centuries.
  • At the moment of the Ascension and just previous to It, as the Love is continued from your outer self to your “Beloved Mighty I AM Presence,” your “Mighty I AM Presence” lifts the struggle and the pressure of the outer self by consuming the discord. As It pours Its Love in the Violet Consuming Flame to the outer self, every vibration of discord is dissolved and consumed. The impurity fades, the Light within expands; and the Love from above joins the Light from below, and draws It up until It becomes that Greater Love also. And I assure you, it is not strenuous!
  • As you enter into the Great Great Silence, demand before you go into It, the Ascended Jesus Christ’ Knowledge and Use of all the Powers of the Sacred Fire during this time and until after Ascension Day.

Ask for the full Understanding and Use of all the Powers which He used when He produced certain Manifestations—which it was not wise to explain to the outer world at that time.

Ask Him to reveal to you the things which He did which He could not explain to the outer world at that time.

Ask Him, by the Power of the Sacred Fire which He directs, to teach you to do the things that He did.

You will have great Illumination! You will ?nd yourselves having Mastery over world conditions which will surprise you.

  1. If at any time you want to know more about the Ascension, and in the anticipation of your own, you begin to wonder how you would feel, call to  [David Lloyd]. He anticipated It and lived It, My Dear Ones! He desired that for more than ?fty years. It is a very deep Record in His Feeling World; and if you want to know how deep his Feeling and Desire for It were in his Life Stream, ask him to illumine you and make you feel his Desire and the Joy of Its Victory!
  2. The Protection of your Nation, the Protection of yourself, the Manifestation of the Incoming Golden Age, the Manifestation of your Ascension, are all contained within your Acknowledgment of the Sacred Fire Control in you and the Sacred Fire World around you the Sacred Fire’s Possession and Control of you unto your Ascension!

The Sacred Fire is the Power which gives you the Ascension! Not one imperfection can remain within that Sacred Fire. It is the Love which is the Mightiest Power at the Heart of the Great Central Sun. It is the Power which sustains the manifested System of Worlds—this System. It is the Power that gives you embodiment. It is the Power which sustains you in anything that is constructive.

It matters not whether It be the Sacred Fire of the Violet Consuming Flame, the Unfed Flame, or the Blue Lightning Purity. Whatever you call forth is controlled by and is the Manifestation of Love’s Perfection to Life, and you cannot fail.

The Cosmic Law stands Supreme; and Its Demand of Life is that the Ascension be attained by the Power of the Ascended Masters’ Love, because unascended beings cannot generate enough Pure Love and keep It pure long enough and be constructive enough to hold the Guard until the attainment of the Ascension. That is why unascended mankind must have Our enfolding Flame of Love in order to hold the Protection and be the Strength to take individuals to their Victory of the Ascension!

ASCENDED MASTER,S RECOMENDATION

Form the habit of constantly qualifying your world with Perfection. The old habit of thinking imperfection has filled your world in the past. Now the important thing is to be Self-conscious that you are filling your world with Perfection all the time. Stand on your feet the first thing in the morning and say with feeling: “ ‘I AM’ the Presence filling my world with Perfection this day.”

The first thing in the morning, say: “I qualify everything in my world this day with Perfection, because ‘I AM’ Perfection. I qualify this mind and body with Absolute Perfection and refuse acceptance of anything else.”

 “ ‘I AM’ the Miracle, and ‘I AM’ the Presence compelling its manifestation through Divine Love, Wisdom and Power.”

The Benefits of Meditation for Children

Several studies have been conducted that suggest children who practice mindfulness develop positive traits such as increased self control and better attention in class. They also tend to have more empathy for others.

Many children have a natural feel for meditation. Here are some more benefits:

• Enhanced focus
• Fostering compassion/self esteem
• Boosting confidence Building happiness.

Some schools are actually replacing detention time with meditation in the USA. Suspensions decreased by 70% over a 4 year period.

Meditation can reduce stress and anxiety. Teaching children to focus on their breath can benefit them in order to come back to a calm state. Outdoors is a good way to help children experience the calming beauty of nature. A few minutes of meditation a day can have excellent benefits. Doing this on a regular basis can change the brain. Brain centers for emotions and executive functioning can be changed and help children in a variety of ways.

HOW TO MEDITATE

Find a quiet location.

Be in a comfortable position such as sitting or lying down.

Focus of attention and open attitude.

Allow the child to take deep breaths and focus on something that brings the child happiness.

Encourage them to imagine good things such as being with family and friends or enjoying themselves in the sunshine. They can think about their favorite holiday destination with the beautiful sea and sand or maybe a tree house where they can create magical things in the tree house. Guide the child to create anything they want with their imagination and put feeling into their thoughts. Guide the child and ask them how they feel when they are imagining all these wonderful things. Use words such as happiness, peace, and joy.

Visualize light all around the body and hum the mantra UMMM which is the sound of light and resonance which will restore harmony. You can do this for 1 minute.

Take deep breaths and end with the code word Namaste.

Recommended time frames for meditation:
Pre school children: A few minutes per day.
Grade school children: 3-10 minutes twice a day.

The Magic of Waldorf and a Steiner Education

Rudolf Steiner was an Austrian philosopher, social reformer, architect, esotericist and clairvoyant.

Waldorf education provides education that allows children to become free human beings and help to incarnate their spiritual identity as beings of body, soul and spirit.

The first Steiner school opened in 1919 for children of workers at the Waldorf Astoria cigarette factory. The schools benefactor was Emil Mott, a managing director who asked Dr Rudolf Steiner to found and lead the school in its early stages.

Steiner schools take children from 3 years to eighteen years of age.

Steiner education works for all children of any class, ethnicity, religion and academic ability.

The core subjects of the curriculum are taught in thematic blocks and all lessons include a balance of artistic, practical and intellectual content.
