I have been making a concerted effort to meditate on a more regular basis for at least 15 minutes a day. I cannot directly connect it to specific manifestations but I can say that I’ve had generally really good days and generally nice experiences. I have also received peaceful and empowering thoughts through this process.
At first I didn’t enjoy sitting and focusing on my breathing. It felt boring and I would feel myself either dozing off or getting distracted.
I’ve changed my meditation process. Instead of focusing on my breathing, I listen to pure theta waves.
From what I have read, theta is the brain wave frequency most prone to good ideas and positive mental state. For more information check out Scientific American , Wikipedia or a quick google search will do the trick. Use headphones for maximum effect.
I try to focus on the sound and softly think of how grateful I am. I say things like “I am source energy” and “the answers I seek are within me”. I also visualize the sounds vibrating through my body and encompassing every cell with a pink or gold light (I imagine that this light is pure unconditional love).
And that’s it. 15 minutes a day is all I really do. I listen to a lot of Abraham-Hicks material and they say that 15 minutes is all you need, so that’s good enough for me. I have seen benefits in being able to bring my emotions in check. For example when i’m feeling anger, I am able to take a step back and soothe myself into better feeling emotions. I can’t do this all the time yet, but I can do it more often. And that’s the key. Being able to make it a habit and making positivity your dominant state of being.
