Take a moment to step back from the chaos and breathe. Trying to keep your thoughts positive can be a bit tricky but I’ve found that when I have a nagging negative thought I’ll say ‘stop’ then repeat a word that has a high vibration…love, peace, joy for example. I have learned that I don’t have to entertain every negative thought. In time, switching thoughts will become so easy.
Choose your words carefully!
As a vibratory instrument, our brain transforms sensations such as thought and sound into frequencies that affect our body. In our brain, there is a vast network of neurons that discharge waves of electrical energy in different frequencies and patterns called brain waves. There are four types of brain waves, categorized by their frequency: alpha, beta, theta and delta. Each brain wave type is associated with specific levels of functioning and consciousness. Although the brain operates using all four frequencies, there is always a dominant frequency, which determines an individual’s state of mind.
All of our feelings, emotions, and behaviors originate from the brain, and our brain cells are affected by the thoughts and words that we choose. The vibration of thoughts and words causes the cells in the brain to vibrate. The brain, in turn, responds to this stimulus by sending off electromagnetic signals, or brain waves. The amplitude of the vibration of brain cells is determined by the amount of concentration and focus put out in connection to the thought or word. These cellular effects give rise to key brain functions, including mood and behavior.
As sound waves, words have a frequency. Due to this, they can affect the frequency of our brain waves. The repetition of certain words or phrases can induce particular brain waves and cause shifts in both heartbeat and respiration. In his popular book Healing Mantras; Using Sound Affirmations for Personal Power, Creativity, and Healing, Thomas Ashely-Farrand explains that different words and sounds cause various shifts in brain wave activity. “Gradually, the vibration of the mantra begins to override all of the lesser vibrations.” The cerebral cortex can become charged or positively stimulated by certain types and frequencies of sound.
The Spiritual Law of Challenge is for our own protection.
The Law of Meditation encourages us to connect with our inner-selves and with spirit.
Meditation is generally a subjective, personal experience. The term can refer to the process of reaching this state, as well as to the state itself. The word, ‘meditation,’ means many things dependent upon the context of its use.
There are hundreds of specific types of meditation. People practice meditation for many reasons within the context of their culture. Meditation is a component of many religions, and has been practiced since antiquity, especially by monastics. More and more doctors are prescribing meditation as a way to lower blood pressure, improve exercise performance in people with angina, help people with asthma breathe easier, relieve insomnia and generally relax the everyday stresses of life. Meditation is a safe and simple way to balance a person’s physical, emotional, and mental states. It is simple; but can benefit everybody.
The use of Meditation for healing is not new. Meditative techniques are the product of diverse cultures and peoples around the world. It has been rooted in the traditions of the world’s great religions. In fact, practically all religious groups practice meditation in one form or another. The value of Meditation to alleviate suffering and promote healing has been known and practiced for thousands of years.
‘Prayer’ is communicating with God (Higher Source, Universal Energy, however or whatever you wish to refer to it …) Every word and every thought is actually a prayer.
Affirmations are thoughts, words or a phrase that are constantly repeated until they enter the unconscious mind and becomes part of your ‘programming’.
