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.

Meditation: From Unhappy to Happy

This meditation is very simple and straightforward. It doesn't require much effort, but it involves the opposites of "happy to unhappy." Just sit upright in a chair or in any other posture or situation that feels comfortable for you. If you are tired, don't breathe too deeply. You can even eliminate the sound method that uses "AHHHH" or "OHHHH." Just sit! If you desire, you may use music accompaniment. Tilt your head upwards and use the word "lift" for concentration and focusing purposes. With your elbows resting on a solid object like armchair rests or your knees, turn your palms upwards in a lifting motion. As a ritual, you might lift your arms to the heavens. Think of it as if you are offering something or someone up to Heaven, similar to Abraham offering up his son Isaac. Be patient and wait for the scene to unfold. Ecstasy and bliss will come.

 

This is a fairly effortless meditation that can lift you out of the world and into the spiritual plane. If you prefer to think of this in the chakra model, this meditation will lift you out of the worldly, third chakra and put you into the elevated, spiritual fourth chakra and above. Do not do this meditation if you do not possess a solid sense of self. Meditation can open various parts of your mind to energies that require a strong sense of "I" centeredness. This sense of "I" groundedness is usually located in the left dominant hemisphere of the brain. In other words you need a strong sense of self before you can transcend to higher levels of consciousness. The existence of a mental or severe personality disorder could make you vulnerable to fragmentation and serious breakdown. However, stress relief and relaxation exercises could be helpful for fortifying and strengthening the sense of "I" that is necessary for deep inner work.
