Be A Lotus

I love the lotus flower.  There is something about these beautiful flowers rising above the water that inspires me and makes me happy and peaceful.

During a meditation recently, I began to see how we could benefit from following the path of the lotus.  The lotus flower grows up from the bottom of a pond or lake.  The roots burgh into the mud while stalk rises through the muck and mire of the water finally emerging above the surface with a flower of pink, red, white, or blue.  The lotus can live for hundreds, even thousands of years.

Like the lotus, our lives are often rooted in muddy soil.  These are the hurts, slights, and negative beliefs that we encounter as we go through life:

  • We get get teased or bullied
  • We fail and get embarrassed
  • We encounter physical or emotional abuses
  • We have our hearts broken
  • We lose loved ones
  • We dream and our dreams are dashed
  • We feel unloved, unappreciated, alone, depressed, fearful, not good enough
  • Etc…

But, if we live like the lotus, we grow out of these experiences and up through the murky waters of life to emerge above the pain, sadness, and fear to as beautiful flowers.  From this beauty and tranquility was can inspire those around us and bring happiness and peace to their lives.  With this gift we can create an impact on the world that latest for centuries, maybe millennia.

So my friends, I encourage you to “BE a LOTUS”.

November Monthly WellWork

Happy November!

For most of us November ushers in the holiday season with its parties, shopping, family, and STRESS.

So, for this month’s WellWork I thought rather than giving you even more to do I would make your month a little bit easier and less stressful (I hope).

Every Tuesday for the month of November I will post a mediation designed to help you relax and let go of some daily stress.  The mediations are short, about 10 minutes, so you can listen to them on your lunch hour, during a quick break or anytime you have a few minutes to sit back and relax in a quiet comfortable location.  Just don’t listen to the mediations while driving or doing anything that requires your full attention.

The mediations will be posted on this blog as well as on my Youtube channel.

Watch for the mediations to be posted 11/4, 11/11, 11/18, and 11/25.

I hope you enjoy the meditations and that they help you relax and enjoy the rest of the year.

“Daily” Challenge – Peace Meditation – 7/18/14

World events over the last several days have brought into focus the downward spiral of society into war and violence.  Countries fighting countries, religions versus religions, drug cartels clashing with drug cartels, politician against politician and the list goes on.

The Law of Attraction tells us that what we think about we bring about.  Thus the more we focus on the unrest and violence in the world around us the more of it we create.  In addition, the Maharishi Effect provides us with scientific evidence that even a small group of individuals practicing the Transcendental Meditation technique can positively effect the surrounding population.             (Visit: http://theuncarvedblog.com/tag/research-on-meditation-and-world-peace for more information)

So, this time I am extending the Daily Challenge through the entire weekend.

Your challenge for the next 3 days is to spend 10-15 minutes each day meditating on “Peace”.   Now, for this exercise I am speaking not of inner peace but external or global peace.  Direct your meditation to thoughts, images and feelings of peaceful resolutions to conflicts around the world, in your community or in your personal life.  Visualize what the outcome of this resolution looks like.  How does the end to the conflict make you feel?  How does it postiviely affect you and those around you?  If you cannot “see” or “feel” a successful conclusion then simply make the word “Peace” your mantra.

We probably won’t change the world in 3 days but even a small shift in the collective conscious of the planet can have a major impact.

So, have a great and Peaceful weekend!

We have reached the final days of this month’s wellwork assignment.

If you have been diligent in practicing your mental focus exercise you are be experiencing some terrific results.

First, you have probably noticed that your mind is clearer and is no longer filled with distracting thoughts. The condition known as “monkey mind” has dissipated. Rather than having multiple thoughts bouncing around in your head at the same time you can now focus on one thought or task at a time and get more accomplished in the process.

Second, you are most likely feeling less stress, anxiety and depression. Meditation has been shown to reduce these negative emotions. Developing the ability to focus the mind is imperative in starting a meditation regimen. In addition, various studies show that meditation can help lower blood pressure, increase circulation, improve sleep quality and help develop areas of the brain associated with improved memory and decision making.

Improving mental focus can also help you learn to pay attention to your thoughts and allow you to actively create positive thoughts. Negative thoughts can cause blocks and barriers to success. By being aware of what you are thinking you can focus on designing positive thoughts and images that are in line with your goals. This positive outlook serves as a motivating force as well as a support system when encountering obstacles. Also, mental focus improves your ability to visualize positive outcomes and circumstances related to your goals.

Finally, improved mental focus results in more self confidence, increased attention to details, calmer reactions to emotional stimuli and a greater sense of inner peace.

Remember, honing your mental focus provides a host of benefits, but it is a skill that needs to be practiced everyday. So, keep up the good work and the benefits will continue to multiply.
