Hi, today I’m gonna talk about my morning meditation. Now, do you guys think it’s weird that you hear people say that the best time to meditate is in the morning? Well, apparently it’s because the mind is refreshed and quiet in the morning. I don’t agree with this, because when I wake up, I get my coffee ready, I sit in the family room, and my mind immediately thinks about the things I need to get done today. So for me, a morning meditation is to quiet my mind and not think about what I need to do, but rather to start my day happy being able to have the time to meditate and being thankful for living another beautiful, healthy day.
I start off my morning doing a meditation, but like most people, my mind wanders. As usual, when I realize that I am in thought of something, I start to focus on my breath, paying attention to the inhaling and exhaling. Inhale… [inhales] And exhale… [exhales] When I finally clear my mind with no thoughts at all, my usual routine is to start sending reiki energy for healing to myself and to my close family members that need it.
What is reiki? It is a form of energy healing that’s Mikao Usui, I hope I’m saying that right. But let me brief you real quick on reiki. The Usui system of natural healing is a Japanese healing art. This form was founded in Japan a little over 100 years ago by Mikao Usui. He did a personal search to understand the healing that led him to discover reiki. The word reiki means universal life energy. Back in 2011, I took classes in reiki and learned about energy healing using the hands. They also had different learning elements, which includes symbols used with these teachings. As you progress to the next phases, you get attunement from a reiki master to pass the lineage of healing energy for yourself and to help others.
But back to my meditation. After I finish with reiki, I quiet my mind again and start focusing on my breathing. I take deep inhales and exhale slowly, and focus on this for a few moments.
So the next phase of my meditation, I ask questions on what messages or quotes to write include in my coaching part of my business. I receive messages or a group of words that I post in social media. Lately, I receive themes of messages. Here are three of them that came into my mind a few days ago.
Theme 1: energy. Breathe in the good positive energy, and exhale the energy. But immediately, turn it into loving positive energy again to be shared with the people on Earth and to receive good energy.
Theme #2: reflection. On reflections, we want to think about good things that happen today, or what did you do yesterday that made you feel good.
Theme #3: think positive thoughts, self care. When things go wrong, change your thoughts with optimism.
I am sure that I will elaborate and explain in detail about these messages, more than likely in a blog post that I would write. So my meditations last anywhere from 10 minutes, sometimes up to an hour. I used to meditate in a quiet room, but my mind would be all over the place. Because I am a music person, I found that listening to soothing meditative music with binaural beats to help me.
Binaural beats are audio waves that are recorded in certain tones that affect the frequency of our brainwaves. It’s best to listen to these frequencies with headphones on in both ears. There are five types of brainwaves that affect binaural beats, but here are just two of them.
Delta, 1-4Hz. Delta is the lowest frequency state,and it’s linked to deep sleep, healing and pain relief, meditation, anti-aging, cortisol reduction DHEA increase or access to the unconscious mind.
Then there’s Alpha, 8-14Hz. When you are in the Alpha state of mind, your brain is focused and productive. It helps with relaxing and focusing, reducing stress, maintain positive thinking, increasing learning capabilities.
Listening to binaural beats keeps me in a meditative state and aware of when my mind wanders. I found a few YouTube channels that has helped me enjoy my meditations by including binaural beats, commercial-free. It helps me with my focus too, especially if I am working on many details from other tasks that I need to complete. It seems that since I started listening to meditative music that has binaural beats, the messages I receive come easier. Most times I just sit and listen, and the messages are coming in my mind. If the messages are strong enough, I have to grab my iPad and start writing them down, because they’re usually just coming in a few of them all at the same time.
This morning I was distracted by something that I had to take care of right away, so I didn’t get to do my morning meditation. But, I know that I will get it in in the afternoon. It’s so nice to take the time to tune in and listen to our minds, heart, body, and soul, and see what messages may come to you that you can ponder over or share with the world.
And now, here’s a brief message.
