Getting benefits out of meditation
I want to get the benefits out of the meditation. And at the same time my mind gets distracted. Will there be any possibility?
Or will there be any chance of getting the benefits of meditation, even though there are distractions?
Yes definitely there is a possibility. All the CDs in the Bach Flower Study Centre are tuned in certain brainwaves. Whenever a person goes into a deep meditation, or deep meditative level, the brain produces certain waves called Brainwaves.
When you are in deep meditation you go to Alpha, then Theta and then Delta. Normally our distractive mind is in Beta State.
When you listen to the Meditation CD with a headphone, whatever Alpha waves generated will be imposed on your brain. When those waves are imposed, you will be forced to come out of Beta level and you will be in the silence mode.
In that way, you can silence the rebellious or the resisting mind. That is the only way by which you can do meditation.
The other way is really cumbersome for every time you have to be careful about the mind, because the mind is a great trickster. You think that you will be able to manage it, for when you just say ‘release’, the thought goes off.
You feel happy then. But the happy state itself is another thought – whether it is happiness, sadness, calmness, worry, anger or love, all of them is a thought. Every such thought has to be released.
Feel better when I do this
I am from Detroit. I am very much thankful to you for all your advices which helped me a lot.
I also do the Forgiving exercise as and when I feel necessary at any time. I also chant Together Divine, few Slokas and Switch Words as and when required.
Wolf is now my best friend
I am happier to talk with it every day. It will help me in minor things and also in major things. I also thank wolf every day for all the help it gives me.
Thank You very much for giving such AMAZING Help in blogs, which is immensely useful for people like me who stay far away from Chennai and would never have known anything about them.
I will always be thankful to you, for making me learn about forgiving exercise.
Act of Forgiveness
When my brother brought the Forgiveness Exercise book and gave me I thought what’s up with my brother? Why he wants to give me a Forgiveness Book?
My brother told me that Naran told that this is a very important book. Then I decided I will first read the book.
I liked the way you explained that we need to forgive others for our own self and I started practicing the forgiveness exercise. It took a lot of time for me to forgive the first person on my list.
Slowly I learned that even when I am hurt I always feel better when I do forgiving exercise.
