Meditation: An Ancient Practice for a Modern World
“I need to unplug” is a popular statement these days. There’s even a National Day of Unplugging.
Meditation is the original way to “unplug,” going back thousands of years. Today it is become more commonplace. We are more focused on wellness and anti-aging than ever, so perhaps it’s that drive to look good and feel good that has sparked a renewed interest in meditation. We also live in a very fast-paced society and meditation helps us deal with our plugged in, stressed out, messed up world.
Pick a religious text, and you’ll find meditation. It’s been an integral part of spiritual wellness for centuries but in the Western world many associate it with Eastern religions. Today, meditation is becoming a common practice among people of all religious backgrounds. Data from PEW Research found that 40 percent of Americans of nearly all religious groups – as well as those who have no religious affiliation at all – meditate at least once a week. Now that is very exciting to me. It gives me hope that people are truly trying to heal their inner pain and connect with the truth in their hearts, which is what my research and teachings are based on.
Meditation has many health benefits: reduced anxiety and depression, increased immunity and lower blood pressure. The U.S. government even goes so far as to recommend so many servings of fruits and vegetables a day and a certain amount of meditation.
Meditation was recommended to me by a doctor several years ago when I was having some health issues related to stress. I could feel the results almost immediately. If the benefits of meditation could be put into pill form, it would be one of the top-selling medications in the world.
Findings from a recent study released by researchers at Coventry University in the UK showed that meditation and yoga do more than make you feel good, they actually change your DNA to reverse the negative effects of stress. The 2017 study, which was publicized in national publications such as TIME magazine, found that yoga and meditation can reverse stress-related changes in DNA linked to inflammation, poor health and depression.
While there’s no doubt that meditation has health benefits, most meditations are based on distracting the mind. When you return to a normal state you have not addressed the subconscious issues that are causing stress in the first place. One of the most popular meditations is to focus on a spot on a wall or on a small detail, like a petal on a flower, or one word like peace. Amazingly, when you do that you feel better. But you know what? The hurt and the stress and the anger causing you to feel stressed are still there. That’s why my Healing Codes methods are so effective.
As you may know, I’ve been researching a higher level of meditation that not many know about. I believe this meditation, what I call the Miracle Meditation, is the most powerful in the universe. You can read more about it here in the introductory blog.
Most people don’t really believe the thoughts they concentrate on during meditation. So when you visualize your goal, your unconscious mind actually considers it to be a lie. Unless you believe that guided imagery is true, then it can do more harm than good.
On the other hand, the Miracle Meditation is 100 percent true AND it’s not a distraction. It’s all about plugging in to spiritual/miraculous/supernatural power that literally has that power to do not only what you can’t do, but what your body can’t even do on its own. The Miracle Meditation is based on a vision that the Apostle John had 2,000 years ago.
Now wait a minute, you say, what if I don’t believe in Christianity or the Bible? You don’t have to be a Christian to make the Miracle Meditation work for you. Jesus is recognized in many other religions as a master healer and spiritual leader. Even though other, spiritual authorities worldwide may not follow his teachings, Jesus is known and respected.
I can’t wait to tell you more about the Miracle Meditation. Until then, say this little request of your heart: “I am open to the truth.” Be open to new truths. Let light in. Let love grow. Let healing begin.
