Meditation and Learning to Pause

Meditation and Learning to Pause

Meditation & Learning to Pause

People are often confused by the concept of meditation because it tends to be inextricably linked to the content being meditated upon. It’s important to understand that meditation is nothing more than a technique. It’s a tool that we can use to help in a wide variety of tasks, including attaining mindfulness, reducing stress or pain, and practicing spirituality. Meditation itself is not necessarily related to any of these goals, other than the fact that it can help us achieve them.

What is Meditation?

To meditate is to use focused effort to calm the body and mind. Every moment of our lives, we are exposed to a plethora of information that is generated from within ourselves. A train of thoughts and sensations constantly plows through our heads, most of which is not important to whatever we happen to be doing at the time. This background noise can be extremely troublesome, distracting us from our lives and potentially becoming a source of negative emotions. Meditation helps us to pause the chaos and allows us to focus primarily on what is important at the time.

How to Meditate

The concept being meditated upon can sometimes require or recommend a specific form of meditation, but we can find similarities among most meditation techniques. The first step in meditation is to achieve a calming of the body so that it doesn’t interfere with the mind. This is usually practiced by sitting in a comfortable position, closing one’s eyes, and concentrating on relaxing the entire body, piece by piece.

When the body is relaxed, we can move on to the mental tasks required by our content. For example, mindfulness practitioners would concentrate on things related to the present moment, like their own heartbeat or sensations on their skin. Alternatively, someone meditating to reduce pain may focus on a visualization of switches and dials that they can manipulate to essentially “turn down” the pain signal. Meditation is a valuable tool that can assist in many tasks by teaching us to pause our lives for a moment so that we can focus on what matters.

7 Ways Meditation Changes Brain

7 Ways Meditation Changes Brain

Every week there is new information about brain research and the effects that meditation can have on the brain. It is now believed that meditation changes the brain in a good way. The beneficial effects of meditation have always been known by the Ancients, people of ancient times, and for many many years meditation has been recommended for reducing stress, making you a calmer person and generally leading to an overall improvement of health. Meditation Changes Brain

However with the advances within medical science and the use of MRI’s (magnetic resonance imaging)  and EEG’s (echoencephalograph – uses ultrasonic waves) the way meditation changes the brain in a beneficial way can be clearly seen and empirically logged.  The brain has always been one of the great mysteries, but now more is being found out about it and these studies are helping with an understanding of the ancient science of meditation and its effect on the  brain. meditation changes brain

In this article about 7 Ways Meditation Changes Brain, Alice Walton writes about the most exciting studies to appear in the the last few years about meditation and the effects of meditation on the brain. In her article entitled: ‘7 Ways Meditation Can Actually Change the Brain she says; “Just a few minutes of meditation may reduce stress, study finds.”

7 Ways Meditation Changes Brain

The meditation-and-the-brain research has been rolling in steadily for a number of years now, with new studies coming out just about every week to illustrate some new benefit of meditation. Or, rather, some ancient benefit that is just now being confirmed with fMRI or EEG. The practice appears to have an amazing variety of neurological benefits – from changes in grey matter volume to reduced activity in the “me” centers of the brain to enhanced connectivity between brain regions. Below are some of the most exciting studies to come out in the last few years and show that meditation really does produce measurable changes in our most important organ. Skeptics, of course, may ask what good are a few brain changes if the psychological effects aren’t simultaneously being illustrated? Luckily, there’s good evidence for those as well, with studies reporting that meditation helps relieve our subjective levels of anxiety and depression, and improve attention, concentration, and overall psychological well-being.

Meditation Helps Preserve the Aging Brain

Last week, a study from UCLA found that long-term meditators had better-preserved brains than non-meditators as they aged. Participants who’d been meditating for an average of 20 years had more grey matter volume throughout the brain — although older meditators still had some volume loss compared to younger meditators, it wasn’t as pronounced as the non-meditators. “We expected rather small and distinct effects located in some of the regions that had previously been associated with meditating,” said study author Florian Kurth. “Instead, what we actually observed was a widespread effect of meditation that encompassed regions throughout the entire brain.”

Meditation Reduces Activity in the Brain’s “Me Center”

One of the most interesting studies in the last few years, carried out at Yale University, found that mindfulness meditation decreases activity in the default mode network (DMN), the brain network responsible for mind-wandering and self-referential thoughts – a.k.a., “monkey mind.” The DMN is “on” or active when we’re not thinking about anything in particular, when our minds are just wandering from thought to thought. Since mind-wandering is typically associated with being less happy, ruminating, and worrying about the past and future, it’s the goal for many people to dial it down. Several studies have shown that meditation, though its quieting effect on the DMN, appears to do just this. And even when the mind does start to wander, because of the new connections that form, meditators are better at snapping back out of it.

Its Effects Rival Antidepressants for Depression, Anxiety

A review study last year at Johns Hopkins looked at the relationship between mindfulness meditation and its ability to reduce symptoms of depression, anxiety, and pain. Researcher Madhav Goyal and his team found that the effect size of meditation was moderate, at 0.3. If this sounds low, keep in mind that the effect size for antidepressants is also 0.3, which makes the effect of meditation sound pretty good. Meditation is, after all an active form of brain training. “A lot of people have this idea that meditation means sitting down and doing nothing,” says Goyal. “But that’s not true. Meditation is an active training of the mind to increase awareness, and different meditation programs approach this in different ways.” Meditation isn’t a magic bullet for depression, as no treatment is, but it’s one of the tools that may help manage symptoms.

Meditation May Lead to Volume Changes in Key Areas of the Brain

In 2011, Sara Lazar and her team at Harvard found that mindfulness meditation can actually change the structure of the brain: Eight weeks of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) was found to increase cortical thickness in the hippocampus, which governs learning and memory, and in certain areas of the brain that play roles in emotion regulation and self-referential processing. There were also decreases in brain cell volume in the amygdala, which is responsible for fear, anxiety, and stress – and these changes matched the participants’ self-reports of their stress levels, indicating that meditation not only changes the brain, but it changes our subjective perception and feelings as well. In fact, a follow-up study by Lazar’s team found that after meditation training, changes in brain areas linked to mood and arousal were also linked to improvements in how participants said they felt — i.e., their psychological well-being. So for anyone who says that activated blobs in the brain don’t necessarily mean anything, our subjective experience – improved mood and well-being – does indeed seem to be shifted through meditation as well.

Just a Few Days of Training Improves Concentration and Attention

Having problems concentrating isn’t just a kid thing – it affects millions of grown-ups as well, with an ADD diagnosis or not. Interestingly but not surprisingly, one of the central benefits of meditation is that it improves attention and concentration: One recent study found that just a couple of weeks of meditation training helped people’s focus and memory during the verbal reasoning section of the GRE. In fact, the increase in score was equivalent to 16 percentile points, which is nothing to sneeze at. Since the strong focus of attention (on an object, idea, or activity) is one of the central aims of meditation, it’s not so surprising that meditation should help people’s cognitive skills on the job, too – but it’s nice to have science confirm it. And everyone can use a little extra assistance on standardized tests.

Meditation Reduces Anxiety — and Social Anxiety

A lot of people start meditating for its benefits in stress reduction, and there’s lots of good evidence to support this rationale. There’s a whole newer sub-genre of meditation, mentioned earlier, called Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts’ Center for Mindfulness (now available all over the country), that aims to reduce a person’s stress level, physically and mentally. Studies have shown its benefits in reducing anxiety, even years after the initial 8-week course. Research has also shown that mindfulness meditation, in contrast to attending to the breath only, can reduce anxiety – and that these changes seem to be mediated through the brain regions associated with those self-referential (“me-centered”) thoughts. Mindfulness meditation has also been shown to help people with social anxiety disorder: a Stanford University team found that MBSR brought about changes in brain regions involved in attention, as well as relief from symptoms of social anxiety.

Meditation Can Help with Addiction

A growing number of studies has shown that, given its effects on the self-control regions of the brain, meditation can be very effective in helping people recover from various types of addiction. One study, for example, pitted mindfulness training against the American Lung Association’s freedom from smoking (FFS) program, and found that people who learned mindfulness were many times more likely to have quit smoking by the end of the training, and at 17 weeks follow-up, than those in the conventional treatment. This may be because meditation helps people “decouple” the state of craving from the act of smoking, so the one doesn’t always have to lead to the other, but rather you fully experience and ride out the “wave” of craving, until it passes. Other research has found that mindfulness training, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), and mindfulness-based relapse prevention (MBRP) can be helpful in treating other forms of addiction.

Short Meditation Breaks Can Help Kids in School

For developing brains, meditation has as much as or perhaps even more promise than it has for adults. There’s been increasing interest from educators and researchers in bringing meditation and yoga to school kids, who are dealing with the usual stressors inside school, and oftentimes additional stress and trauma outside school. Some schools have starting implementing meditation into their daily schedules, and with good effect: One district in San Francisco started a twice daily meditation program in some of its high-risk schools – and saw suspensions decrease, and GPAs and attendance increase. Studies have confirmed the cognitive and emotional benefits of meditation for schoolchildren, but more work will probably need to be done before it gains more widespread acceptance.

Worth a Try?

Meditation is not a panacea, but there’s certainly a lot of evidence that it may do some good for those who practice it regularly. Everyone from Anderson Cooper and congressman Tim Ryan to companies like Google GOOGL -0.9% and Apple AAPL -0.56% and Target TGT -0.5% are integrating meditation into their schedules. And its benefits seem to be felt after a relatively short amount of practice. Some researchers have cautioned that meditation can lead to ill effects under certain circumstances (known as the “dark night” phenomenon), but for most people – especially if you have a good teacher – meditation is beneficial, rather than harmful. It’s certainly worth a shot: If you have a few minutes in the morning or evening (or both), rather than turning on your phone or going online, see what happens if you try quieting down your mind, or at least paying attention to your thoughts and letting them go without reacting to them. If the research is right, just a few minutes of meditation may make a big difference.

The Nature of The Soul

The Nature of The Soul

The following information is provided by the Lucis Trust.  The Lucis Trust is a nonprofit service organization incorporated in the United States in 1922 by Alice Bailey and her husband Foster Bailey, to act as a trust for the publishing of twenty-four books of esoteric philosophy publised under Alice Bailey’s name, and to fund and administer activities concerned with the establishment of “right human relations”. These include the Arcane School, a school for esoteric training, World Goodwill, Trianglesa lending library, The Beacon magazineas well as the publishing company.

The soul is the seat of consciousness and quality the true server, the disciple. The term “discipleship” defines the effort to live a life of service with its inevitable expansions of consciousness.

The soul is the intelligent will to good of the principle of love, the centre of spiritual force through which the plans of God come into being. Every form of any kind, be it an atom, a human being, or a planet, has–or is–a soul. The soul, or consciousness principle, while identical in nature in all human beings, varies in degree of development and unfoldment.

The student of meditation requires an effective source of teachings in which he has confidence and which can be tested and self-applied. Each expansion of consciousness, always initiated by the individual himself, fits him to express soul awareness more clearly and accurately. There is a ”chain” of hierarchy, or soul life, linking together all who are capable in some degree of expressing the qualities and principles of our evolving planetary life. All are inter-related and interdependent, from the unit to the whole, and the achievement of any individual profoundly affects the whole.

The human soul includes, but is not limited by, the Personality through which life is expressed. Through meditation and contemplation, and through the sustained intent of the disciple, the soul illumines the mind and inspires the heart, which in turn transmit understanding and wisdom to the brain. The psyche or soul, the perceiver or thinker, is the immortal, imperishable spark of divinity, the Son of God, the spiritual intelligence which is the real man.

The Value of Alignment

The Value of Alignment

The following information is provided by the Lucis Trust.  The Lucis Trust is a nonprofit service organization incorporated in the United States in 1922 by Alice Bailey and her husband Foster Bailey, to act as a trust for the publishing of twenty-four books of esoteric philosophy publised under Alice Bailey’s name, and to fund and administer activities concerned with the establishment of “right human relations”. These include the Arcane School, a school for esoteric training, World Goodwill, Trianglesa lending library, The Beacon magazineas well as the publishing company.

Meditation is, or should be, a deeply spiritual experience. It leads to right relationship with God and to right human relationships in everyday life. It is essentially the means par excellence of establishing alignment between the various aspects of planetary life which. from the angle of consciousness and of form, appear to be separate.

Creative meditation begins with an alignment exercise and results in a deeper, more extensive and more sustained alignment between the meditator and his whole environment. Alignment brings the various levels and states of consciousness “into line” with one another, or into correct relative adjustment.

In meditation alignment concerns the mental body–the mind; the emotional/feeling nature–the heart; the etheric or energy body and the physical self. When these are integrated into a unity, they can be aligned with the soul itself, the spiritual Self. A channel of communication is thereby created linking the brain, the heart, the mind and the soul; the life energy of the soul, with its power to illumine and inspire, can then sweep through into activity, affecting every aspect of daily life.

In this process, the mind is the active principle. The mind visions, visualises, concentrates the needed energy, and focusses the required attitude. Without necessarily being conscious of results, the mind can triumphantly act as if the necessary alignment has been created. Constant repetitions and focussed attention provide the building blocks.

Once created in consciousness, the essential alignment is ever present, needing only a moment of directed thought to bring it to life as an active ingredient in the relationship between the inner and outer life.

Occult Meditation: A Sample

Occult Meditation: A Sample

The following information is provided by the Lucis Trust.  The Lucis Trust is a nonprofit service organization incorporated in the United States in 1922 by Alice Bailey and her husband Foster Bailey, to act as a trust for the publishing of twenty-four books of esoteric philosophy publised under Alice Bailey’s name, and to fund and administer activities concerned with the establishment of “right human relations”. These include the Arcane School, a school for esoteric training, World Goodwill, Trianglesa lending library, The Beacon magazineas well as the publishing company.

There are essentially two types of meditation–mystical and occult. And both of these differentiate into various meditation techniques.

Mystical forms of meditation depend largely upon an active feeling nature and an intense desire for spiritual union; or for some personal spiritual experience. This type of meditation tends to be introspective and self-centred. Occult meditation, on the other hand, builds upon whatever mystical experience may have occurred, taking the whole idea of meditation a step further. The goal is no longer personal illumination and inspiration, but the right use of the meditative technique to serve in the upliftment and the transformation of the human kingdom and the world in which we live. Occult meditation is a method of cooperating with the process of planetary evolution and planetary redemption.

Today, when so much nonsense and inaccuracies are attributed to the term “occult,” it’s useful to bear in mind one simple definition. Occultism is the science of energy flow and energy relationships. Occult meditation is a means of consciously and purposefully directing energy from a recognised source to the creation of some specific effect.

It is, of course, quite possible to meditate for selfish, personal goals; to acquire a facility in contacting sources of powerful energies and to utilise those energies for one’s own ends, material or subtle. Energy per se is impersonal. It can be used for good or evil ends. The motivation of each individual is the determining factor. And if we seek in meditation to channel the energies of light and love and the will-to-good, these carry their own safeguards from misuse.

The most powerful energy available to us at the present time is that of love. The very nature of love is selfless and harmless. If the inherent qualities of the energies we receive in meditation are not also a part of the quality of the meditator, those energies cannot be safely and effectively transmitted. There’s a blockage, a hindrance, in the channel of energy transmission which prevents or deflects the flow of energy and aborts its true usefulness. Effective occult meditation depends on the quality, the motive, the state of consciousness, the spiritual status and the defined purpose of the meditator.

Occult meditation is a mental activity, requiring a condition of alignment, or at-one-ment, between the three aspects of the mind: the lower or concrete mind, the soul, and the higher or abstract mind. This alignment integrates all three aspects of the individual meditator, spirit, soul and body, making available to him the spiritual resources of life, consciousness and form.

By way of this alignment the meditator is also united with the life principle in all things within the planet, and with the soul or consciousness of all manifestation. Thus, alignment is dual; vertical and horizontal. And this creates the basic form of all truly spiritual occult meditation.
Today, the most effective type of occult meditation is called Raja Yoga, the “kingly science of the soul.” A yoga is a disciplined way of achieving union or alignment, and a measure of control on some plane of consciousness. Raja Yoga uses the creative imagination, the art of visualisation and the use of a seed thought to exercise and expand the mind into the world of meaning and significance. It is in becoming aware of life’s meaning and significance that we train ourselves to function fully as souls in incarnation.

Raja Yoga is for the spiritually awakened individual intent on the right application of all available energy and resources. A typical form of Raja Yoga method of occult meditation might run something like this:

First, find a time and a place where the work can be done without interruption or distraction. Early in the morning is the best time, before the mind becomes preoccupied with the mundane affairs of the day. And daily regularity is important.

Sit in a straight-backed chair with the spine erect, yet with the body comfortable and relaxed. Fold the hands lightly in the lap and cross the ankles. Take a few slow, deep breaths while you empty out of the consciousness any personal matter that tends to cause anxiety or distract attention.

Lift the consciousness, through the creative imagination, to a focal point outside and above the top of the head. See this as the lower mind, the analytical critical mind stilled and quiescent, a quiet pool of light. Project a line of light upwards to the soul centre, seeing the soul as a brilliant sun a radiant source of energy. This is the real spiritual self.
Visualise a further projection of the line of light towards the higher or abstract mind, the lowest aspect of the divine Self. Hold that lighted alignment in the imagination and by visualisation. This should only take a few minutes.

Pause for a moment of interlude, aware of the light and energy of the soul as the central point in consciousness. Then, holding the mind steady in the light, meditate for a few minutes on a seed thought, for example, “Let the soul control the outer form and life and all events. Let love prevail. Let all men love.”
Examine the words first with the analytical mind, then seek to penetrate to the real inner meaning. What would it mean if the soul were in control of all life on earth and if love were the energy relating all mankind?

Then visualise the flow and precipitation of energy throughout the planet from the highest point of divine life to its lowest point of physical manifestation.

Pause for a few moments of reflection on the ways and means of working out the energies of light and love in all areas of human life, in all parts of the world.

Finally, acting as a channel for the transmission of energy and as an act of service to humanity, pour out the energies released during the meditation process. Use the Great Invocation to visualise light and love and power irradiating and inspiring human consciousness:

From the point of Light within the Mind of God
Let light stream forth into the minds of men.
Let Light descend on Earth.
From the point of Love within the Heart of God
Let love stream forth into the hearts of men.
May Christ return to Earth.
From the centre where the Will of God is known
Let purpose guide the little wills of men
The purpose which the Masters know and serve.
From the centre which we call the race of men
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door where evil dwells.
Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.
OM OM OM
