Is It Time To Meet The Wizard

In the classic movie The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy went on a great quest to the Emerald City. Her goal? To meet the wizard. The all-knowing, all-powerful Oz, who could grant all her wishes and return her “home”.   The Wizard

The truth is the Wizard was an illusion created by a man hidden behind a curtain.

True reality is a lot like that. Ancient Yogi’s have always said, life… is an illusion. In our modern times we have another way to look at it that brings a new reality to this old truth. Life is a virtual reality. A hologram.

When you engage reality at face value, taking it for what it is, you are talking to an illusion. When you approach spiritual knowledge, ‘God’, or whatever you want to call it… you are talking to the great Oz. An illusion created by humans, when the truth is behind the curtain.

For you to awaken, you must look beyond the hologram, the illusionary curtain… to the raw truth.

To know it, you must experience it for yourself. To begin, you need to develop an understanding of how to see the flaws in the illusion. The ripples in the ‘curtain’ that is only hiding the true reality.

Relax Using Binaural Beats

My intention is to give you a basic introduction to binaural beats and the amazing potential for this new technology. Find out how it works and what its benefits are before using this technology.

By using this technology you can begin to reprogram your mind from all the years of negative andbinaural beats self defeating thoughts and actions. Does this technology really work? Before we can answer that we need to learn a little about this technology.

Binaural beats use very specific frequency ranges that can bring about deep meditative states of relaxation. This is accomplished by mixing specific audio frequencies, which are designed to change the listener’s brain wave activity. To bring about the specific brainwave responses, which include Alpha, Theta and Beta you must use headphones.

Research has proven that when we produce significant changes in our brain waves a significant change will take place in our emotional and physical health. These binaural beats have the same positive effects on the body, as does a deep meditative state brought on by different types of meditations or trances. One important thing to mention is that there are very few people that can achieve these advanced states without many years of meditation. The benefits of using binaural beats as a means to reaching these deeper levels of insight are becoming more obvious.

An added perk of using binaural technology is that it gives us access to our subconscious minds, that region of our consciousness, which is responsible for many of our thoughts and actions. When you use binaural beats in conjunction with other self-improvement tools aimed at increasing your overall personal development you will dramatically increase your ability to go into deep states of relaxation and put you into the all-important Alpha And Theta states. Using binaural beats is a very productive way to deal with your deep seated negative emotional and behavioural beliefs.

One other added benefit is the energy boost you get, which can equate to getting several hours of sleep. Used daily, binaural beats will bring about the following results

1. Invoke deep states of meditation.

2. Raise your intelligence levels and increase you creativity.

3. Help to dramatically slow the aging process.

4. Bring about profound emotional changes by removing old traumas and emotional blocks.

5. Help to eliminate Stress & anxiety.

The unique benefits of using binaural beats is that there is very little the listener has to do aside from just relaxing and taking the time to listen. Just put on a pair of headphones and let the technology go to work.

Learn new ways of programming your subconscious for effortless personal growth by learning about the benefits of meditation and also taking your meditations to a new level with the aid of binaural beats

Tips On Learning How To Meditate

There are many similarities  among many of the various cultures and religions when it comes to learning how to meditate. This holds true in many aspects of practicing meditation, from learning how to breathe properly, proper posture, when to meditate, choosing the correct environment, mapping out your meditation and understanding your thoughts and emotions. It is important to take all these things into consideration but don’t get too overwhelmed with perfecting any one thing when you begin to learn how to meditate. To experience the incredible benefits of meditation it will take a commitment and desire before you begin to unwrap the layers that have defined your existence for so many years. It is necessary that you learn how to meditate the correct way to get the most from your meditation experience.

Pick Your Environment

Find a room that is quiet and free from distractions and noise. You may choose a place in your house that fits this criterion as long as the room gives you a good feeling and is private enough to allow you to spend at least fifteen minutes uninterrupted. Do not overly concern yourself with finding the perfect spot it will come in time and as you continue to use the same meditation spot you will be changing the vibration of that spot so that it will hold the vibrations you are emanating. As you continue to program your energy into your meditation area you will start reaching deeper states of bliss

When To Meditate

It’s a great idea to choose a consistent time each day to meditate. I find that the morning works best for me because I haven’t been overwhelmed by my daily chores and obligations. These mental and physical demands place a lot of stress on our minds both subconsciously and consciously and they become harder to let go of when we try to relax and calm both our bodies and minds. Be consistent with yourdaily morning meditation and you will notice that your day will unfold in a much different joyful pattern.

A Meditation Plan

Planning your meditation is important when you begin learning how to meditate. To have a productive meditation it is important to be in the right state of mind. Meditating as soon as you get home from a long day is not a good idea because it will take the better part of your meditation just trying to calm down. A good idea would be to take a short walk to decompress from the demands of your day. If you are tired than maybe you can take a cool shower or even an energizing fresh fruit drink. This is a good way to prepare yourself to have a joyful and relaxing meditation.

Proper Meditation Posture

There are many different positions you can use when you are meditating but when you are just learning how to meditate it is best if you began in a seated position. You can sit in either a chair with a straight back or on the floor on a cushion. Imagine yourself as one with the surface you are sitting on and let the energy travel through your body from the floor to the top of your head. Picture your body being pulled upright by an imaginary rope that is attached to the top of your head. This technique will help allow the energy to flow through your body unrestricted

Put your hands on you thighs and relax your fingers letting go of all the tension in your arms and hands. Relax your jaw as you bring your chin towards your chest. Rest your tongue against the top of your mouth or up against your upper teeth while keeping your mouth open slightly. With half open eyes look out and relax your vision by seeing but not really focusing on anything. Put yourself in a state similar to that of a trance where you are aware but not aware at all. It is the same way in which we deal with any sounds: you hear the sounds but you don’t focus on the sounds. They become a background symphony for the experience of the meditation, having no more significance than the background noises we hear and ignore all day long.

Using Your Breath

When you begin to learn how to meditate you will notice that your mind is moving wildly from thought to thought as our minds struggle to gain control once more. By focusing on your breath you will learn to let go of these thoughts. Counting your breaths is a good way to stay focused. As you breathe deep into your belly and then breathe out this will be a count of one. Try counting 15 to 20 breaths or how ever long it takes to train your mind to be quiet. Breath in prana energy and breath out tension and anxiety. Pranic energy is the all pervasive universal energy. Learn to tap into the universal source of energy by visualizing breathing in prana energy.

Rejoice in the Benefits Of Meditation.

As you start to master your thoughts and your body you find that you are in that place where you are now in control of your emotions and health. That area within where the mind is no longer the controller of your destiny and master of your fate. You begin to realize what it’s like to be in control of your life and only accept peace and goodness in your life. A profound understanding of the unlimited being you are meant to be. All your former illusions of self are now breaking down and you are on a journey to discover the truly divine being you are.

Use these meditation techniques everyday for the best possible results.

6 Step Tibetan Buddhist Meditation

Tibetan Buddhists believe that the practice of meditation will lead the student to salvation and ultimately enlightenment. This has been taught and practiced for thousands of years through the teachings of the Buddha. With so many different types of meditation available it’s sometimes difficult to choose which type of meditation is best for us.
The Tibetan Buddhists have many different forms of meditation techniques, which are claimed by each to have a different objective based on the needs and dissimilar objectives of each practitioner.  Regardless which Tibetan meditation is used the ultimate goal is still to reach a state of Nirvana.

There are many benefits of meditation, which can bring about incredible changes in both you physical and spiritual lives. From a physical perspective you can gain clarity of mind, vigor, and an overall feeling of good health. This will be reflected in all aspects of your life including your relationships with others, your ability to show compassion even under the most difficult circumstances and help you to be a more likable and stable person.

The Tibetan Buddhists also believe that on a deeper level you will advance spiritually and will help you to progress in your future lives. The Tibetan meditation must be approached with the aim of being a benefit to all and not just for the sake of personal gain. It is through this sense of selflessness that puts you on the bodhisattvas path to the selfless experience of Nirvana.

A traditional Tibetan meditation technique is best practiced in the morning when your mind is clear and free from all the stresses of the day. This following meditation is used to help develop your concentration. It is this state where the Tibetans believe a deeper connection will take place. It will allow you to let go of your “I’s” (ego) and experience a deeper connection with the universe. How To Meditate Using A Tibetan MeditationTibetan Meditation
1.    To begin sit on the floor or on a chair and make yourself as comfortable as possible. Keep you spine straight so that the energy has a free path to travel. Your hands should be placed just below your third chakra located just below the navel. Cup your hands face up with the left hand on the bottom and connect each thumb together forming a triangle.

2.    Place your tongue to the roof of your mouth and allow your head to bow forward slightly. Allow your eyes to relax and gaze gently towards the floor. Notice the silence and how your thoughts are beginning to diminish as your breathing is starting to slowly become shallower. You are reaching a state of relaxation and focus.

3.    Bring into focus in your minds eye any significant spiritual symbol. It can be any symbol, which holds value to you, such as the picture of Buddha or an Om symbol. Picture the symbol in front of you at about eye level. Imagine that the object is very heavy and it is glowing and radiating beams of light. Picture the object in minute detail. Observe the object and steady your focus.

4.    Take notice of any thoughts or other images that are coming into your mind and release them. Re-focus on your symbolic image. The thoughts that are entering your mind are just a distraction of your true self. Allow the thoughts to exit without so much as a thought to their importance. This is not the real you.

5.    To increase the efficiency of your focus it may be necessary to increase the appreciation of your symbol by thinking about something that brings great joy to you. It may be a time at the beach or a vacation to the mountains. Whatever will bring a sense of joy to you. This will help you to remain focused on your symbol.

6.    Now carefully look at the symbol you have created. Look at it from all perspective angles. Is the image sharp and stable? Can you pick out all the small details about your symbol? Don’t worry if is not perfect, this will come in time as we learn to control our focus and attention. By developing mindfulness you will soon be able to see the image as clearly as if it were in it’s physical form right in front of you.

This Tibetan Meditation technique offers us a way to develop concentration and observe the inner workings of our mind. It is this introspection that will lead to future insights into the true nature of our being. As our consciousness is freed from the limiting constraints of needless thought it becomes as clear as the cleanest waters.
This is the very essence of perception and reality itself. I use this meditation but the program I have gotten the most out of really taught me how to meditate



Go placidly amid the noise and the haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible, without surrender,
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even to the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons;
they are vexatious to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain or bitter,
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs,
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals,
and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love,
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment,
it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life,
keep peace in your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

– written by Max Ehrmann in the 1920s —

Walking Meditation

When it comes to meditation most people think of a seated meditation in a quiet secluded spot. Well for most of us that is difficult to achieve. At best we may be able to find a few minutes a day where we can be alone and hope to not be disturbed while we try to meditate.
What if we could meditate while we were going about our daily activities? That would be an incredible way to spend some of our more mundane moments doing our daily chores.

One way we can meditate is while walking. Not only in a park or a forest but in a city also. This takes a little practice but the rewards are plenty. If nothing else you are learning to tune into your environment and can learn to fully enjoy your surroundings. Each moment can be a profound experience when we learn to be more aware and more conscious.
