In response to our different mental states, our brain produces certain Brain Waves, which are Electro chemical.
The Electro Encephalograph (EEG) can record our brain wave activities.
Research has discovered a wide range of brain wave frequencies. They are named as Beta, Alpha, Theta, Delta, and Gamma waves.
When one is under stress – worry, her/his brain produces Beta waves.
The brain becomes more synchronized, balanced when it produces alpha and theta waves.
The mind comes out of obsessive and survival thinking when the brain waves are in the range of alpha and theta.
In addition, it becomes more open, relaxed, holistic and creative.
This meditation is to pat ourselves. Let us not feel anything wrong with us. We develop interest in healing after we get 40 years old. This is called as making up or correcting ourselves. We resort to all types of healing. Interestingly, without all that fuss we have achieved so much.
(When I say pat, pat the left shoulder. Left side is for receiving. We need our love. We need ourselves)
When you affirm, “I accept myself totally”, then divine energy flows into you. Self-appreciation is a must. That’s why I gave this meditation to you.
Close your eyes.
Feel the feet where it really anchors and feel your body.
Just be with the body. Be with yourself.
I am a loving person.
Think of days where you expressed your love from the heart and pat yourself.
Appreciate yourself. “Hey you have done a good thing. You did a good job.”
Say your name again and again and pat yourself in the back of the body at the same place.
Now think of the days or moments when you really laughed and enjoyed. It may be an ice cream. Think of all the days where you really enjoyed and laughed out from the heart. You are really great and you really know how to enjoy. You are a wonderful person. When you do that you do with all the smiles in your face because you are visualizing your days of enjoyment, your days of laughter. Joy should reflect on your face.
Think of all your achievements in school days or college days – any achievement, even scoring a first mark in any subject. You are an achiever. Pat yourself.
Think of all the appreciation you got from others. You are a nice person; you are trustworthy and pat yourself.
Thank yourself. A sense of achievement should be on the face with a feeling, ‘I have been appreciated for this’. Really that person appreciated you from the heart.
Think of all the persons who cheated you who had hurt your feelings. Pat yourself for managing your life with them.
Think of the period of your struggle with the body. The body had some ailment. You went to the doctor and consulted so many other people. Somehow or other you are still living and have come out of the ailment. Pat yourself for managing well and coming out of the ailment.
Think of the period of struggle with money. You are still here. Pat yourself since you have come a long way. Money is one part of life. You have successfully managed it.
Think of any event that you realized that god is there. There is always a force behind all these happenings. Love yourself for understanding that there is a divine force behind you. Keep your hand in the heart and say ‘Oh god you are my light. You are my peace. Guide my steps. Illuminate my heart. Lead in the paths that go straight to Thee. Open my eyes whenever necessary. Be here and let me feel the connection’. Thank yourself and pat yourself for being connected with god.

In future also there is always divinity which will take care of your future. Say now, ‘I am at peace’.
