Why don’t more people meditate? They don’t understand what it means and the great benefits (physical and mental and spiritual) that they will get if they do!!! I didn’t! BUT I DO NOW!
Many years ago I attended a “class” to learn about transcendental meditation because at the time it was the “new kid on the block” and it was cool to do it! There were lots of people who showed up that on cold Saturday morning in Aiken, SC to get their “mantra” and learn how to meditate like all of the cool people in California. We were herded in a line through several stations and in less than 30 minutes we had our mantra and very little else! No talk about how to meditate, no explanation as to what I might experience during a meditation or what exactly I would possibly learn or benefit from the process.
Needless to say, after I tried it a few times and got nothing out of it I quit even trying. For the next 30 odd years I figured I was just one of those people who couldn’t meditate.
AND THEN I got interested in “hypnosis” and age regression as a result of reading several books I had had heard of by Brian L. Weiss, M.D., a psychiatrist. His first book, Many Lives, Many Masters has been an international best seller for 30 years by many people interested in life after death and the eternal spirit (soul).
After 23 sessions of hypnosis trances followed by discussions and evaluations by my team working on “The Seth Project” I can now say that I not only know how to meditate but have concluded that I have been meditating for many years and not know what I was doing. My subconscious mind was guiding me along and protecting me while my conscious mind was trying and keeping me so busy that I never slowed down or concentrated long enough on “being still and knowing” to really get any benefits from any form of meditating that I was doing.
It is so important that people learn about meditation and meditating that I have decided to make some of the known facts about it available in my blog as reports of work on The Seth Project.
NOTE: Meditation is not necessarily a part of religion. It can be associated with all religions around the world as a part of “be still and know” taken from the Bible, but it is so much more than that. Over the next decade, you will see changes being made in the way mental illnesses are being treated by the increase in usage of hypnosis techniques. Hypnosis/meditation will be used in a lot of treatments for physical illnesses also. Using our minds to heal our bodies will be common place to more people in the days to come. BE a part of the upswing in “awareness”!!!
STAY TUNED and Meditate!!!!!
