DHYAN MANTRA: MANTRA TO IMPROVE FOCUS & CONCENTRATION : PERFECT FOR MEDITATION

In Uncategorized on October 27, 2015 at 3:01 pm

OM DHYANAYE OM

DHYAN means FOCUS

Focus can have far reaching consequences in many areas of our lives. Being able to focus and resist distraction is also linked to our ability to control our impulses, emotions and achieve long-term goals.

Meditation is a popular technique for relaxation and stress relief that can significantly increase your ability to concentrate and focus. Focus is the ability to pay attention to one thing at the expense of all others, which can be very difficult in a society that emphasizes multitasking and success. Increasing your ability to focus can foster creativity, promote problem-solving skills and decrease the stress associated with handling more than one task at once.

Step 1: Pay attention to your breathing

When you’re meditating, the point is to focus on one thing and allow your other thoughts to pass by, according to Mayo Clinic. For someone who has difficulties paying attention to just one thing (which includes most of us), that can be daunting. An easy way to get started is to simply listen to your breathing.

Sit comfortably so you’re not distracted by physical pain, then close your eyes and listen to your breath.
Breathe in and out through your nose, but don’t otherwise try to control the rate or depth of your breath.
When thoughts try to crowd in on your meditation, let them fade as you refocus on listening to your breath. Feel how it flows down your throat. Feel your abdomen expand. Stay here as long as you can.
Step 2: Don’t move

Most people are fidgety. Sitting perfectly is still a pretty foreign practice, but it can help you focus by putting you in control of your physical body instead of being controlled by your comfort. Sit as comfortably as you can, but don’t worry about listening to your breath. Close your eyes, and try to not move a single muscle. You’ll find yourself bombarded by itches, hairs tickling your face and your joints protesting. Unless you’re experiencing pain above regular discomfort, don’t succumb to anything. The focus required to ignore your body and sit perfectly still will calm your mind and increase your ability to concentrate over time.

Step 3: Use a mantra

Once you get comfortable with sitting still and you can listen to your breathing for extended periods of time without difficulty, try to introduce a mantra. A mantra is simply a repeated syllable, word or phrase that helps you focus. During your meditation session, repeat your mantra over and over.

PEACE MANTRA : OM SHANTI OM

In Uncategorized on January 10, 2014 at 4:20 pm

“Like many other mantras this one starts with the word “Om.” It is considered that Om is the the original sound, the sound of the Universe of which all sounds come from. We can see it as an equivalent to the white light, in which it can be found all the colors of the rainbow. In the Hindu tradition Om is word of solemn affirmation and respectful agreement.

The second part of the mantra, Shanti, means “Peace,” that simple. It is a beautiful meaning and also a beautiful sound. This is interpreted as peace in the body, speech and mind (our whole being) or as a desire for peace individually, collectively and universally.

“Om Shanti Om” it is one of the Vedic Mantra which has got religious and philosophical meaning. Om is believed to be a sound of the whole cosmic manifestation. And Shanti is the “Peace”. It means ‘Om Shanti’ means peace for the all human kind, peace for all living and non living beings, peace for the universe, peace for each and every things in this whole cosmic manifestation. Hindus not only pray for their group or for themselves, they pray for every one and every thing and that is what Vedas teach us to do.

POWERFUL SLEEP MEDITATION: GET POWER AS YOU SLEEP

In Uncategorized on August 3, 2013 at 7:09 pm

Anyone who’s ever experienced a fitful night of sleep knows that “just relax” is easier said than done. But do-it-yourself meditation practices may help you prepare for rest, and put worries or discomfort behind you.

These techniques work best when done right before bed, in a quiet, calming environment.

“If you can keep your stress levels under control during the day, you’ll sleep better at night,”. “You can even do them at your desk or on the train.”

Abdominal breathing
Breathing from the abdomen and putting your attention on those breaths can help you relax both during the day and in bed at night. Some people may enjoy lying in a dimly lit room, closing their eyes or listening to soft music while focusing on their out breaths.

While sitting or lying in bed, try placing your hands on your belly. “When you breathe in and breathe out, your hands may gently move. Focusing on this movement gets your mind off of your busy thoughts and onto your body. You can distract yourself and bring yourself to a different place.

Guided imagery
Some people imagine a calm scene to help them wind down at the end of the day. There are no rules about what you should imagine, so long as it’s calming. Although clouds, the ocean and mountains are common choices, you can focus on something as general or as specific as you want.

Pick a place that feels safe, and, using your imagination, invite any or all of your senses to explore it. “The brain doesn’t always know the difference between pretend and real,”. “If you watch a scary movie, your adrenaline might go up, just as if you imagine eating something vividly enough, you might start to salivate.”

Guided imagery can be done alone or with a specialist, such as a sleep doctor, cognitive-behavioral therapist, or hypnotherapist, or by using a tape or CD–but even when prompted by an instructor, the patient should still be the guide. “They need to imagine someplace comfortable and peaceful,” “I don’t know where they need to go; the ocean may seem peaceful for one person, but traumatic for another.”

Mindful meditation
Focusing on different aspects of your life before bed can help you earn your rest, if you’re able to let those thoughts go. “You need to look at one thing at a time, which slows things down,” says Walsleben. “Focus on an issue in your life, then let it go. The major learning experience here is letting go.”

Counting down
While lying in bed, start by gazing upward. “A little eye strain relaxes you,”. Take an abdominal breath and hold it, and on the out breath, let everything relax. Repeat one or two times. You might then try imagining yourself walking down a flight of stairs or a gentle hill while counting down from 10 or 20, each number signifying your movement to a lower step, exhaling with each imaginary step.

OM CHANTING MEDITATION: VERY POWERFUL

In Uncategorized on May 21, 2013 at 7:48 pm

The vibration produced by chanting Om in the physical universe corresponds to the original vibration that first arose at the time of creation. The sound of Om sustains life. Om also represents the four states of the Supreme Being. The three sounds in Om (AUM) represent the waking, dream and deep sleep states and the silence which surrounds Om represents the “Bliss” state.
Because the first of the three states of consciousness is the waking state, it is represented by the sound “A” pronounced like “A” in America. Because the dream state of consciousness lies between the waking and the deep sleep states, it is represented by the letter “U” which lies between the “A” and “M”. This “U” is pronounced like the “U” in would. The last state of consciousness is the deep sleep state and is represented by “M” pronounced as in “sum.” This closes the pronunciation of Om just as deep sleep is the final stage of the mind at rest. Whenever Om is recited in succession there is an inevitable period of silence between two successive Oms. This silence represents the “fourth state” which is the state of perfect bliss when the individual self recognizes his identity with the supreme.

Om Namah Shivaya Chanting Meditation

In Uncategorized on March 17, 2013 at 5:15 pm

Om Namah Shivaya (Panchakshara Mantra, five syllables) is a most potent and popular mantra, which is at the heart of the Vedas and Tantra, and is widely used in this and other variations in the Himalayan tradition, as well as by others. While there are other descriptions of the mantra, the following focuses on meanings for mantra meditation leading to Self-Realization.

OM/AUM: The three parts of Om (A-U-M) encompass the three states of waking, dreaming, deep sleep, the three levels of gross, subtle, causal, and the three levels of conscious, unconscious, subconscious, as well as the three universal processes of coming, being, and going. Absolute silence beyond the three levels is the silence after AUM. It also refers to Tripura, the one who live in the “three cities” as in Mahamrityunjaya Mantra, as well as the light referred to in Gayatri Mantra.

Namah/Namaha: Adoration, homage, respect. Nothing is mine (as an individual person); everything is thine (as the Absolute Reality). The three levels of Om, the three worlds of gross, subtle, and causal, along with the three states of waking, dreaming, and deep sleep states of consciousness, as well as the three levels of conscious, unconscious, and subconscious themselves are “not mine” as the true properties of who I really am. Truly, “nothing is mine.” Rather, everything, all of these triads is “thine” or the “other” as the Absolute Reality.

Shivaya/Shiva: That Absolute Reality that is the ground out of which the others emerge. It is that “ink,” so to speak, that is not separate from the many forms which may appear to manifest or be created from that ink. In the Realization of this, one comes to see that he or she is one and the same with the Absolute Reality. The Mahavakyas, the great utterances, are seen to be true. Shiva (the static or ground) and Shakti (the active or creative) are seen to be one and the same. She (Shakti), while one with Shiva is realized in direct experience as the one in the three worlds (Tripura) outlined in Om.

Relaxing Moments: Peaceful Wind Chimes Meditation

In Uncategorized on March 4, 2013 at 9:24 pm

When you add wind chimes to your porch or patio, you bring a new dimension into your outdoor space. The sound of the metal or wooden chimes adds gentle ambiance. There are actually many reasons that the gentle, tinkling is used. Some of these include:

• Soothing — the calming and soothing affects will provide peaceful background noise while you work or play outside.
• Health — there is evidence that the chiming sound created by wind improves health.
• Comfort — the gentle sound will comfort a troubled mind.

It is well known that certain types of music can be beneficial to patients who have high-blood pressure or heart conditions. As a light breeze blows, the wind chime peels its jingling strains in your backyard. To sit and listen will encourage total relaxation, which can be beneficial for many health problems. The psychological benefits actually work to benefit the physical ailments.

There are several places where a wind chime is ideal. You will want to securely attach the apparatus to a roof, beam, rafter or overhang. For this, a simple C-shaped hook that screws into wood usually works well.

You may enjoy your chime in many situations in your yard and around your property. Consider installing yours where you will be able to enjoy it. For example:

• A deck is one of the most obvious places that will be an accessible location where you can hang your chime. You will enjoy the music the breeze creates when you sit and watch the sunset from your deck or when you just sit in the shade to enjoy the fresh air.
• Hang one of these natural instruments near your garden area. You will commune with nature as you dig in earth to the accompaniment of the strains moved into music by the wind.
• A swimming pool or dining area is a great place to enjoy your wind chime. Imagine floating in a pool chair with the tinkling of chimes in the breeze, or having that gentle, natural background music to set the tone for your outdoor dining area.

Many people hang wind chimes on their property. The most popular ones available are made from wood or metal. Often, these are hollow tubes that clink together to create the attractive noise that peels through the air and brings pleasure while you enjoy or work in your yard.

Decide yourself about Drinking Alcohol

In Uncategorized on December 27, 2012 at 12:00 pm

Immediate Health Risks:

Excessive alcohol consumption has effects that increase the risk of harmful health conditions, such as unintentional injuries, falls, drowning, and burns; violence, including spousal/partner and child; risky sexual behaviors, such as unprotected sex, increased risk of sexual assault and/or sex with multiple partners, all of which can result in unintended pregnancy or sexually transmitted diseases.
Consuming alcohol during pregnancy can result in stillbirth or miscarriage, as well as a combination of physical and mental birth defects that will last a child’s lifetime.
Another consideration to alcohol abuse is alcohol poisoning, a medical emergency that results from high alcohol levels that suppress the central nervous system. Alcohol poisoning can result in loss of consciousness, low blood and body temperatures, coma, and respiratory depression.

Long-Term Health Risks:

Excessive alcohol use over time can lead to chronic diseases, neurological impairments, and social problems, such as dementia, stroke, cardiomyopathy, hypertension, depression, anxiety, suicide, unemployment, family problems, cancer (mouth, throat, liver, esophagus, liver and colon), liver diseases (alcoholic hepatitis, cirrhosis, hepatitis C), pancreatitis, and gastritis. Additionally, excessive drinking may result in memory loss and shrinkage of the brain. Research suggests that women are more vulnerable than men to the brain damaging effects of excessive alcohol use, and the damage tends to appear with shorter periods of excessive drinking for women than for men.
