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.

The Healing Process

Depression and lack of energy plague many people from time to time. For some people, depression becomes a chronic problem. Meditation when combined with emotional release, takes a person from the deepest pits of hopelessness and feelings of failure, to the heights of ecstasy and happiness. And, it can do this in less time and effort than it takes to eat your lunch. As part of a disclaimer, I recommend that you consult with your physician about possible physical causes and medication.

 

Depression and lack of energy are usually caused by suppression and constriction of your inner vital capacity. Breathing becomes inhibited. Motivation turns to apathy and feelings of hopelessness while failure permeates your mindset. It goes without saying, that this state of being must be altered by some kind of action oriented intervention. You'll have to become fed up with feeling energetically dead and hopeless about your situation and your future. This means that you commit yourself to take action and what better action is there than learning simple and powerful meditation techniques. If it is appropriate, find a qualified teacher preferably one with a therapy background.

 

 If you want something that works, then this is a strategy that succeeds. Drop your resistance and get on with it!

 

Find a comfortable place where you can sit down and not be disturbed. Some people prefer to sit on a pillow; others do quite well sitting upright in a chair. Experiment with what feels right to you. I recommend a place where there are no distractions and you will not be disturbed by anything or anyone. Make sure that you use well selected music in order to create a mood and mind altering experience. Some people prefer not to use music. I have found music to be very helpful for moving the mind out of the logical hemisphere and into the deeper, feeling, spiritual spaces.

 

If you are sitting on a chair, place your feet flat on the floor and allow your arms and hands to rest on the arms of the chair. If you wish, you can decide whether to close or keep your eyes open. Pull your chin closer to your chest and begin to breathe slowly and deeply, filling your belly first and then your chest. Slowly, allow yourself to expel the carbon dioxide from your lungs. At this point, you may wish to commence prayer according to your needs. If feelings begin to burst out, allow that to happen and at some point begin to coordinate your breathing with the chant, "Omm."

 

You'll probably notice that the sound of the chant will correspond to a particular chakra or body part, arising from lower to upper, similar to the notes of a musical scale. At first, the sound will appear to be coming from a lower part of your body. After a period of time, the sound may switch to a higher chakra or body segment. It is okay to move from one body segment to another. The shape of the chant may change from time to time as you move from lower to upper chakras and back again.

 

As you continue the chant, you'll notice that each body segment becomes clearer and more purified. As your chakras open up more and more, you'll notice that your sound and your body is opening up and becoming more powerful. Continue the chant for as long as you need to. Regular meditation usually recommends 20 min periods, a couple of times a day. If you are trying to lift yourself out of depression, you will need to meditate until you notice that you are feeling incredibly happy and blissful. This may take more than a half-hour. Don't stop until you feel satisfied.
