Meditation Will Make You Mental

And not necessarily in a good way. Well, we may perceive it as a bad thing, but, eventually, if we keep it up, it will be a good thing. Allow me to elaborate…

When you begin meditation and even for a while after, all your unresolved garbage will come up – all the unresolved issues, anger, depression, stuff you haven’t really dealt with. Maybe you ignored stuff in the hopes it would disappear. I do that a lot. Ignore it and it’ll go away. It’s not true, though. I guess it’s true with some things – ignoring those aggravating telemarketers, “friends” that you don’t really want to hang out with or talk to – maybe some of those go away.

But the stuff you truly need resolving does not go away. It’s the same with any lesson you are sent here to learn. If you don’t get it, it will keep coming back to bite you in the butt.

You will only reach true tranquility, calm and peace once you have reached a self-realization. Know your mess, accept it, then let it go. We, humans, tend to hang on to every hurt, wound, scar, as if it’s a trophy or badge of honor we must wear. We cling to it so tightly. It’s downright weird, don’t you think? I mean, I get it. I do it, so I understand all the rest of you. But we are weird to do this – to hang on to the past. We must learn to accept our truths, our pains, or lies and deal with it, accept, forgive ourselves, forgive others, love ourselves, love others (and there are so many different types and levels of love and forgiveness), and then let it go – hand it over to God or the universe or whomever you let it go to.

I know, I know. Easier said than done. And even when you think you’ve already done that, it still comes back to haunt you. I get that, too. More of a chance to keep on meditating until we learn to go through those stages I mentioned. After that is when we can experience the cure – the bliss, the clarity.

Continue to sit still and be quiet. The more time you spend doing this daily, the faster you will get past the junk, deal with it and reach BLISS.

I am not actually speaking from experience. I wish I was. Let me tell you what my experience is. I am in the midst of the storm. That’s why I’ve been so pissy for the last week. I was a little sick. Not sure that was brought on by a bug that was going around or if it was stress I tend to take on from all the garbage going on in the world – I try to escape the news so I won’t know what’s going on, but it somehow finds me and fills me in on everything. Or if my anger is simply from my daily meditation. Or a combo. I don’t know. But I am continuing the meditations daily in hopes of reaching the Land of Bliss. I’d love to know what that feels like.

So please excuse me for my ranting like a crazy person on Instagram and on the blog. My nerves have been truly frazzled lately. I’ll try to be nicer but I’m not making any promises. Praying the bliss sets in before I lose it.

Please excuse my mental-pause.

Happy meditating! Or…angry meditating?


Be Still and Grow

I bid you good morning. It’s another melancholy morning over here. Was planning on going to Aunt Sallie’s funeral but Mama was sick all night so I will take her to the doctor this morning after she gets a little rest, if she’ll let me. She’s pretty stubborn. Love you anyway, Mama. So sad to miss Aunt Sallie’s funeral. I know she knows we wanted to be there and she knows we’ll miss her. Love you, Aunt Sallie.

So, today’s post will be a tad shorter. Is anyone reading this? Is this helping anyone? I have no idea but I’ll continue with it anyway, I guess.

More benefits to meditation:

  1. Strengthens immunity.
  2. Fight or flight. Remember this one? How The “Fight Or Flight” Response Triggers Anxiety – The problem is, evolution has hard-wired our DNA to physiologically react in stressful situations — our heart races, our breathing becomes shallow, our blood vessels clinch up, our pupils dilate, our muscles tighten, all in preparation to either fight or flee. The good news is that your body has a built-in stress-defense mechanism — it’s called the parasympathetic nervous system. Your ability to stay anxiety-free is directly tied to activating this often elusive system each and every day. Then, what’s the best way to wake up this sleeping giant? Meditation.
  3. Runners high.  A 1995 study (Harte et al) published in the Biological Psychology Journal, tested the neuro-chemical release of two groups — 11 elite runners and 12 highly trained meditators — after running and meditation, respectively. What did they find? As the scientists suspected, both groups had boosted their endorphin levels. No surprises there.
  4. We are all one. The shift in consciousness achieved through meditation naturally makes you aware of the highest and perhaps most easily forgotten universal law — We Are All One.

Ya know, I honestly wonder how much more peaceful the world would be if we all meditated and got back to this universal truth. Can you imagine? I think the whole world would benefit if we started teaching and practicing meditation in schools. Then, perhaps it would become a daily routine for everyone for the rest of their lives and we could live a more peaceful existence, with ourselves and with each other. A girl can dream…

FYI, some of this research comes from the EOC Institute, though I have several sources for research.

And some of you, I know, think meditation is new age. It’s actually an ancient practice. The activity of meditation appeared in very ancient times. Historians located early cases in Ancient India 10,000 BC. The practice developed in Ancient Greece (which knew the non-marital meditator as a proxenetas). Then in Roman civilization. (Roman law, starting from Justinian’s Digest of 530–533 CE) recognized meditation.

Just thought you ought to know.  🙂

Have a lovely day! ~Hugs~
