Visualize The Body You Desire

Visualize The Body You Desire

Meditation can help us understand why our bodies have taken on the appearance they have.  We tend to get so busy doing all those things that keep us moving through life that we do not stop to listen to the signals our bodies are sending out to us. Sometimes we have been ignoring our bodies for so long, that when we finally listen, they seem to be screaming at us and inundate us with information. If this should happen, simply ask your body to slow down so you are not overwhelmed.

Practical Application of Meditation
This meditation technique will provide you with a tool to listen to what your body has been trying to tell you. It will help you take the time to ask your body what it has been trying to tell you and to listen for the answers.

  • Set-aside all preconceived ideas and judgments about your body.
  • Enter a meditative state in whatever manner you choose.
  • When you have reached a meditative state, ask your body what it most wants to impart to you about the way you appear.
  • Ask your body to give you information about how your body managed to appear this way – the reason it is manifesting this appearance.
  • Ask your body what it would like you to do. The answer can range from seeing a doctor to changing your dietary habits to changing your hygiene to changing your exercise routine to checking for environmental pollutants. Be open to whatever the answer is.
  • With the information your body is giving you, what do you see as your next steps?
  • Thank your body for serving you in the manner it has.

Visualize The Body You Desire

Why Meditate?
Meditation can be a highly effect it tool in reaching the subconscious and letting it know, without question, what our desires are. If we are working on shifting the way our bodies look, meditation can help us communicate the change we desire clearly and concisely to our subconscious so it may put all its resources into helping us attain our desire. We will, in effect, have all our resources, both known and unknown, working to help us succeed

Practical Application of Meditation
This technique is to fully infuse, all aspects of yourself so that your entire being has no question about what you desire your body to look like.

  • Enter a meditative state in whatever manner you choose to do so.
  • Once in the meditative state, visualize your ideal body. In doing this, clearly, see all parts of your body as they exist in the perfection of your desire.
  • Next, imagine the way your perfect body feels.
  • Then notice the way your perfect body moves – where the center of gravity is, how erect your spine is, the types of activities. It participates in.
  • Ask your body if there is anything you are doing that is interfering with the manifestation of your perfect body.
  • Determine what your next course of action is to be as a copartner with your body in bringing forth the body you desire.

Meditation and Your Habit Patterns

Meditation and Your Habit Patterns

Why Meditate?

Meditation can be an efficient tool in creating new habit patterns that will serve us now and in the near future.  Effective habits can help us create the organization and order we desire in life.

EASTERN vs. WESTERN MEDITATION

The eastern world views meditation as an end unto itself.  The western world understands that meditation can be an end unto itself, but it also has great value when used as a powerful  tool to create the life one desires.

Practical Application of Meditation

This technique is to facilitate the entraining of a new habit pattern that you have determined will be useful to you in your life, now.  It may be easiest to start with a current habit that you wish to replace with a different habit.

  • Choose a habit that you would like to modify.
  • Enter a meditative state and connect with your higher self in whatever manner you choose.
  • Once in the meditative state, thank the habit pattern you currently have for having served you so long.  Acknowledge that there was value to the habit.
  • Inform your subconscious that you now desire to make changes to that habit.  Parts of it are no longer aiding you but are instead, a barrier.
  • Clearly identify the changes you desire
  • Vvisualize and sense yourself performing the new habit.
  • Visualize the effect the new habit has on your life.

Choosing habit patterns is self-empowering.  Knowing you can change them at any time is a gift.

Meditation – Free Yourself from Stale Habits

Use Meditation to Free Yourself from Stale Habits

Why Meditate?

Meditation can be invaluable to help us consciously change habit patterns that we are no longer happy with.  While it is true that some habits are desirable, such as our morning routines that get us to work on time, others really no longer have a purpose in our lives, but since they are ingrained, they continue.  If we wish to rid ourselves of these habits, meditation can help us determine the source of those habits and choose change.

Eastern Meditation vs. Western Meditation Techniques

Eastern Meditation is primarily reserved for accessing and interfacing with Spiritual levels.  Western Meditation expands its uses to common, everyday issues.

A Practical Application of Meditation

This meditation technique brings clarity to why you developed a habit that you now wish to be done with.  In recognizing the original purpose of the habit, you can determine if that purpose is still valid or if part or all of the habit may be discarded.

  • Think of one habit that you would like to change.
  • Enter a meditative state in whatever manner you choose.
  • When you reach a meditative state, focus on one habit that you desire to change.  As you focus, realize all the ways that this habit affects your actions and your life.
  • When was the very first time this habit appeared in your life?
  • What was going on at that time and what impact did that have on your actions?
  • Are the reasons for the habit still valid in your life today?  If not, are you willing to give them up?  If so, is there any part of the habit pattern that is no longer needed?
  • Forgive your younger self for reacting in a way that you would not choose today.  The younger you did not have the same tools and skills you have now.  Accept that the habit had a purpose.  Life has changed and part or all of that purpose is no longer valid.

You can use this technique to understand all the habits you display and make conscious choice about what actions you want to take moment to moment.
