A guided meditation for opening your Heart & Mind

As we grow up, society conditions us to experience the world through the lenses of a belief system that is economically most beneficial. A downside of this is that we close our hearts and minds to possibilities that most certainly can become reality, but are stopped because it doesn’t fit in the current system of belief. 
Those that have added the most value to society, however, are those people that kept their heart and mind wide open. Having an open heart and mind doesn’t only benefit others. In the end, it benefits yourself first and foremost.

In this guided meditation you get the chance to do a technique for opening your awareness more to possibilities that you might not have noticed in your life before. This way you create more ways to enhance your life.

Sample meditation from a Course in Transformational Meditation

This is a sample from a live recording from a guided meditation in Second Life. The meditation is one of the meditations that we’ll do at the end of the workshop in Transformational Meditation.

Meditation and Magic

‘Abracadabra’ can be linked to the Aramaic phrase ‘Avra Kehdabra’ which means:
I will create what I speak.

We couldn’t have found a more magical and interesting venue for the upcoming course in Transformational Meditation in Salt Lake City. Oh yes! The wonderful people from Crone’s Hollow are opening the doors for us to make this two-day workshop an absolute blast! Many link meditation to Asian traditions, but did you know that many in the pagan community, that Crone’s Hollow serves, use meditation as well? And that elements from transformational meditation, like visualization and setting and holding an intention are common in Witchcraft, Paganism and Magic?

Those that know me well, know I bridge the latest in modern science with ancient spiritual practices to give you a broader understanding of and use for meditation as a tool for personal transformation and manifestation. The 20th and 21st of April you can experience first hand what it is like to be in full control over yourself and your life, how you can heal yourself, manifest your dreams, grow your intuition and use intention to help yourself and others. Transformational Meditation is backed by science and many techniques we teach are used every day at schools, hospitals, prisons, police forces, by firefighters and more. They are also used by athletes, performers and many others that have to perform at their best under stressful situations.

So if you practice Paganism, Witchcraft and Magic and want to explain your practice to your friends and family who do not fully understand you yet, this workshop is something for you. And for those that are keen on learning a modern form of meditation that goes further than relaxation alone, this workshop and course are perfect for you and you might even leave the workshop with some of the products above in the picture that you can surely find at Crone’s Hollow and make your own private meditation space at home.

You are not body only…

If you think you are a body only, you are ruled by its demands and restrictions, and your life is reduced to a daily struggle to get enough. - Alan Cohen
If you think you are a body only, you are ruled by its demands and restrictions, and your life is reduced to a daily struggle to get enough. – Alan Cohen

There have been a number of well-known scientists over the years who have concluded that everything is energy. This also applies to our body. Actually, the physical part of our body is the result of an expression of energy. We can change our body by changing our energy. But how do you change your energy? By changing your feelings and emotions and by being aware of which feelings you want to hold on to. One method to accomplish this is Transformative Meditation. A meditation form that focuses on change on different levels through meditation techniques.

Second Life Midweek meditation 06.12.18

From our midweek meditation about reality and our conformistic filter.
From our midweek meditation about reality and our conformistic filter.

 

We have had some technical issues the last months recording Seb’s sessions in Second Life, but now we are back. This is a recording of the guided meditation Seb did the 6th of December after talking about how our conformistic filter shapes our reality. It is a live voice lead guided meditation. Since it was recorded live Seb’s voice might sound a little dull due to the microphone he had to use. 

Make the unconsciousness conscious

Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate. - Carl Jung

Getting to know yourself through Transformational Meditation means that you become more aware of your unconscious or, in other words, when you do things unconsciously. You catch this and can override the unconscious by making a conscious decision instead. In other words, YOU will be in the driver’s seat and not your surroundings.

Don’t manipulate the symptoms but go to the core.

Real transformation occurs not simply by manipulating the symptoms, but by going to the core and addressing the fear, pain, and beliefs that are causing the symptoms.
Real transformation occurs not simply by manipulating the symptoms, but by going to the core and addressing the fear, pain, and beliefs that are causing the symptoms.

This is one of the key principles that underlie persistent healing. Treating symptoms does not remove the cause that caused the symptoms to appear. Sometimes one has to go deeper to get to the core and work with, anxiety, emotional pain and more to achieve lasting change. Transformational Meditation can be an aid to go deeper and work with yourself in a different way.

Are you afraid to heal?

Are you afraid to heal?
Many people are afraid to heal because their entire identity is centred around the trauma they’ve experienced. To not know who you are outside of trauma can be terrifying.

Each time you say, “I am ….” you create and strengthen your identity. Have you experienced a trauma that caused you to become more anxious and are you telling yourself and others that you are an anxious person, then this becomes your anxious personality and your identity. And every time you tell yourself you are an anxious person, you reinforce your identity

You know deep inside you that you do not want to be an anxious person and you want to get rid of the unpleasant emotions and experiences that come with it. This means that you must change one or more personality traits and thus your identity and this is scary in itself. Because what’s happening to you when you’re not the person everyone around you identifies you with? Transformational Meditation is a tool that is highly effective in creating such changes in a liberating manner.

Meditation for the Water

Without water, there is no life on earth. Water is essential, not just for human life but all life. Water is needed for drinking, cleaning, washing, and making crops grow. There is no substitute for this precious resource, and yet we waste it, we pollute it, and we even commodify it! Let’s start anew, and begin by thanking for and sending our best intentions to the gift that is water.
