ECSTATIC MEDITATIONS for Daily Living

Ecstatic Meditation is designed to strengthen, heal and transform your inner dialogue. In fact, meditation has been healing people and transforming lives for over 5,000 years. That is why I have included meditation as part of my therapy program. You can initiate meditation wherever and whenever you want. As the master of your inner world, use them to help you during times of stress and where self-contemplation is needed. Below is a partial list of meditations to use as needed. Additional meditations can be taught during Telephone, Online and Hypnosis sessions.

Sleep Meditation

This is the perfect meditation for those of you who have had trouble getting to and staying asleep. This meditation can help you eliminate taking sleep medications. You are going to stare at certain kinds of lights that are different than your usual daytime incandescent light sources. Don't use candles! But you can use a moving fiber optic light source or one of those light bulbs that you would put inside a small Christmas House. Just make sure that the light is not too bright. You want a very subdued, nighttime type of feel. A miniature light bulb placed in some type of miniature building or other structure created by your imagination, is a good source for focusing. If you can use two different lights at the same time, that would be sufficient.

 

About a half hour before your usual bedtime, just begin staring from one point of light to the other. Do this in a very relaxed manner. After a while, you will begin to feel very relaxed. Your eyes will become tired and begin to close automatically. Breathe deeply, focusing simultaneously on your breathing and the two light sources. Your mind will begin to relax and become clearer. Periodically, move your vision from one light source to the other. When you feel naturally tired and comfortable, get up, turn the lights off and go to bed. This pre bedtime ritual will allow you to experience a natural transition to normal sleep and will prevent any disturbing thoughts from breaking up a normal sleep pattern.

 

This method of meditation works, because it allows the muscles of your eyes to relax and grow tired naturally. Some people usually go to bed, close their eyes and expect sleep to overcome the day’s thoughts and tensions. By relaxing first and staring at a muted and interesting light source, you set up the expectation for calm sleep. You also establish a pre sleep relaxation ritual that sets up the expectation of restful sleep. Sleep meditation also establishes a new sleep habit that replaces your previous sleep habits.
