How to Perform Zen Meditation for Connecting With Higher Сonsciousness?

Published

what is zen meditation image

Buddhist practice differs from other meditative practices due to the absence of unique techniques because some of the lessons are borrowed from Hindu schools of philosophy. Zen meditation, i.e. contemplation, at first seems pretty simple, although it is based on a hundred concepts and therefore requires both practical and theoretical training. In the primary state of your mind, according to the Buddhists, we are not able to concentrate on specific objects and explore deeper layers of consciousness.

What’s The Purpose Of Zen Meditation?

In terms of Buddhist tradition, the main purpose of meditation is to turn your attention within and to look inside yourself. At the same time, the task of a person is to discipline the mind, which can not clearly recognize things and stay focused on a certain object because of emotions or past experience. Only meditation can abstract the consciousness and show how full of superfluous thoughts and illusions our mind is.

Buddhists believe that the modern human mind is impure. It creates an inner illusion, i.e., the ignorance of life. One can overcome such a problem either by gaining wisdom (Prajna) or by understanding the process of achieving Samadhi (the concentrated mind).

It is possible to acquire a concentrated mind only if you have a moral lifestyle, which should definitely include relaxation and observation of the world. Therefore, meditation is so necessary for every person seeking to understand the truth and the Supreme Essence. Relaxation practices reveal our inner nature and develop our intuition.

The concentrated mind is the result of correct meditation based on the ability to analyze and calm your mind.

From a scientific point of view, I can also say that Zen practices contribute to the proper tuning of the human brain. Such meditations can increase the number of alpha waves, which opens up access to the subconscious mind. The stable performance of Buddhist exercises establishes a strong connection between your soul and body, which increases your ability to self-healing. But the main benefit of Zen meditation is, of course, achieving comprehensive peace and a sense of harmony.

Preparation For Zen Meditation

There are three stages of Buddhist meditation:

1. Shruti (study).

It is the understanding of the basics of practice. It is achieved by listening to the senior masters and reading the relevant literature.

2. Vicara (thinking).

It is necessary to discuss the information you get from studying. You should think about new knowledge and figure out how to use it in practice for your life situations.

3. Bhavana.

It is a meditation itself.

Even when the first two stages are mastered, you should keep in mind that Buddhists put forward a number of conditions for each meditator.

A meditator should have a safe and peaceful home, which is not isolated from the social environment but provides hours of contemplation without mental strain.

Also, a meditator must abandon his constant desire for luxury, so beginners should not do anything with an external orientation (shopping, cinema, etc.).

A meditator should use special asanas that are designed to discipline the body during Zen meditation. It is necessary to be able to control your physical shell, then you will be able to control the movements of your mind. The choice of the specific position of the body is individual, but it is necessary to observe important principles:

1. The back should always be straight;

2. Beginners should avoid heavy physical activity during meditation;

3. Beginners should not constrain or compress the breathing.

You can meditate sitting on a pillow with crossed legs or on a solid chair with parallel feet, as well as practice Zen meditation during a leisurely walk. It is also worth paying attention to the position of the hands. You can put the right palm over the left hand, hidden under your clothes. The internal sides of your palms turn up and the thumbs slightly touching. It is also permissible to place the right hand on top palm down, expressing humility. Another option is to keep your hands on the respective knees.

Zen meditation does not imply eye closure because it does not increase the concentration of the mind. You can slightly lower your eyelids, darken the room and look down, capturing the tip of your nose. Keep your mouth closed during meditation. But pay attention to your teeth – do not clench them. Hold your breath slowly through your nose.

Objects Of Zen Meditation

It is very important to find a perfect object for your Zen meditation. Otherwise, the whole practice can go wrong. Buddhists have two categories of the Zen meditation objects:

1. Things that affect the nature of the inner body.

This kind of objects can be attributed to your breath or mind. Meditation on the nature of mind is considered to be the highest goal for many practitioners. As for the concentration on exhalation breaths, it easily holds the mind’s attention at one point, if you synchronize the movement of breathing with movements inside your mind. Sometimes you can concentrate on lifting and lowering your chest in the breathing process.

2. Things that affect the outer shell.

This includes sound objects and objects of specific shapes. In the first case, there is a concentration on some mantra, and in the second — a mental image of something, for example, a light point or a divine silhouette. Many Buddhists use a Buddha portrait or figure for meditation. But you should remember that after making a choice, you can not drastically change the object of your practice.

Try not to indulge yourself when choosing an object. Do not create attachments. If you feel anger, it’s better to create a calming mental picture of the landscapes.

It’s important not to allow yourself to fall asleep during Zen because the nap interferes with clarity and care of consciousness.

Concentration on things should be accompanied by awareness and active power of the mind, otherwise, all energy will dissipate, and will not go in a particular direction. Also, you should keep in mind that, by building a mental image of the object, you should move away from your thoughts and words. Just keep the picture in your mind, that’s all.

Zen Meditation For Beginners

Zen meditation is a kind of Buddhist techniques for achieving higher forms of consciousness. It is subject to the General rules of the tradition and thus has its own nuances. The word “Zen” in Sanskrit represents meditation.

If I tried to describe the methodology of Zen meditation in just a few words, I would say: “Sit and do nothing”. This seems a simple statement, but regular classes can cause drowsiness, to withdraw into a dream world, i.e. your mind will try to turn you away from the true purpose of your practice. If you observe some tricks, you can avoid unnecessary thoughts and achieve the desired results faster:

  • You can sit anywhere, but the object for your contemplation should not distract or excite you. It is best to look at the trees, sky, walls — any static and unchanging things.
  • Don’t look too closely at the objects. The diffused look relaxes a lot more than long-term focus.
  • When meditation has already begun, there is no need to change breathing. Let it flow in a natural rhythm.
  • Don’t move your body unless it is necessary. Any body movement leads to shifts in your mind because it is based on the same kind of energy.

The correct practice of simple Zen meditation is not accompanied by visions or visual sensations that indicate excess tension. Zen meditation is like taking a shower that cleanses the mind in a state of inner peace and outer equanimity. It is important to note that such meditation is the main goal itself, but not a tool for achieving something.

Zen Meditation On Koan

In some Buddhist schools, it is customary to divide two types of Zen meditation. I’ve already described the standard concentrated awareness. But there is also the second type of Zen meditation – it is a meditation on a koan. Koan is a question or a problem that you can’t solve by logic and simple reasoning. In fact, I’m talking about the practice of going beyond the standard limits of your mind and establishing contact with the enlightened consciousness of a deeper level.

As a rule, the koans deal with certain aspects of the understanding of Buddhism, they are paradoxical. In the process of such meditation, you should not think intellectually. You should be aware of your own ignorance and go in search of the truth within yourself. There are also personal koans — mysteries of everyday life without final decisions. In this case, your task is to change your personality and your point of view on the issue.

When you learn the basic techniques of Zen meditation, you can move on to the synthesis of daily activities and relaxing settings. By simple sitting practice, you can learn to control your emotions and thoughts. But then you need to develop the ability to transfer your calmness into external actions.

Physical work in the garden or in the kitchen is quite convenient to combine with Zen meditation for an hour or even longer.

Equally effective is the practice of Zen meditation while walking, for example, in combination with a walk along the waterfront. For doing this, try to adjust your breathing to the steps, and then gradually increase the exhale by one step. You can combine dynamic meditation with exercise on account of breathing.

Possible problem

I’ve noticed that beginners in Buddhist practices tend to face two kinds of difficulties.

1. The mind gets distracted.

Loss of attention is a protest of your mind, which by nature should be scattered in a variety of thoughts.

2. The mind loses its clarity and energy.

This problem is related to the standing of the mind in the object of concentration. This obstacle is difficult to recognize because it resembles real meditation. When you think that your mind acquires stability, the probability of drowning increases. Immersion of the mind in the object causes a pleasant sensation, but with vigilance fades away. In this state, it is dangerous to continue the practice, because it leads to the development of laziness.

buddhism image

During Zen meditation people go through several stages:

  1. they feel that they have too many thoughts;
  2. then they notice long breaks in a thought process;
  3. and finally, they reduce anxiety and increase concentration.

In order to avoid defects of practice in time, it is necessary to attract the power of remembrance in time, which immediately warns you about the appearance of thoughts, and stay in a vigilant awareness of anxiety.

For getting rid of the distraction you can lower the object of your focus, as well as make the room darker. If you feel that your mind is drowning in the object, it is necessary to do the opposite: to make the lighting of the room brighter and to raise the object higher.

If you perform Zen meditation without blunders, you will reach success in your practice. At first, you will notice changes in your body, as you took control of your vital energy. The feeling of lightness is accompanied by the strongest experience of happiness. Harmony of the mind and the body is the most important result of any Buddhist practices.

Does Karma Exist? This Is How It Really Works

Published

on

does karma exist image

In our world, everything is conditioned by the principle of cause and effect. This is reflected in many popular sayings: “What you sow, you will reap”, “What you give is what you get”, “what goes around comes around” and so on. But this is just the tip of the iceberg, a simplified understanding of the law of karma, and it is for this reason that some people ask: “Does karma exist?”.

For example, the same action, but performed in different circumstances, can lead to opposite results. And I’m sure you can find lots of examples of how “bad people” never get punished and “good people” always suffer.

In this article, I will share with you spiritual insights on why this happens by taking a deeper look at how karma works and if it’s really as simple as “what you give is what you get”?

If you’re wondering: “Does karma exist?”, this article will help you figure it out!

The Concept of Karma

how does karma work image

Let me start with clarifying what karma is.

Karma is a Sanskrit term that literally means “action” or “doing”. In the Buddhist tradition, karma refers to action driven by intention which leads to future consequences. Each action can be analyzed through the prism of the four elements of karma:

  • the object of the action;
  • motivation;
  • the action itself;
  • the attitude to the action that has already been completed (judgment).

And only by the combination of all these four elements of karma can you fully determine what kind of action is committed, what consequences it can lead to, and even assume how soon a person will receive a reward/punishment (effect) for his action (cause).

The Four Elements of Karma

#1: The Object of the Action

karmic relationship healing image

This is the first thing we evaluate when we try to analyze an action. There is an opinion that our interaction with people, and in general with living beings, is due to karmic connections.

According to Vedic knowledge, anyone we can see, any living being that comes into view, has a karmic connection with us. In your life, you never meet or see people or other living creatures who wouldn’t have a karmic connection with you. Everyone we interact with in one way or another has a karmic connection with us from our past lives. It’s just that the intensity of these connections is different.

For example, a person with whom we just exchanged glances on the street has a weak karmic connection with us, and our parents are souls with whom a karmic connection has been formed over many lifetimes.

That is why in Buddhism, it is believed that we receive the most active and complete retribution for the actions committed against these three categories of beings:

  1. our parents;
  2. our teachers in the broad sense of this word;
  3. enlightened beings.

Meaning, the actions committed against these three categories of beings will have the maximum impact on us. If we do good, this good will multiply many times and, most likely, the reward will be faster than in other cases. If we commit evil against these categories, this evil will multiply many times and the retribution will also overtake us faster.

The sutras tell the story about a woman who donated the last thing she had to the Buddha — her cape. And the Buddha said to the kings and rulers who were present at that meeting: “This woman’s donation exceeds all your donations, for she gave the last thing she had.” And immediately the woman received a reward for her act — everyone who was present at the meeting gave the woman many precious gifts.

Thus, if we perform an action in relation to those people with whom we have a strong karmic connection, the reward for such an act will be much greater and will overtake us faster. It is believed that for the actions that we perform in relation to parents, teachers, and enlightened beings, we will receive a reward in this life. And if we do bad things against them, we will not be able to develop, even if we encounter the most powerful yoga practices.

Therefore, in order to have good karma, remember to always pay respect to your parents, teachers, and enlightened beings. And this respect should be sown not just in your actions but also in your thoughts and words about them (even when they cannot hear you).

#2: Motivation

Zen stories and tales image

The second, no less important, component is motivation. Paradoxically, actions can often look the same, but it is the motivation that determines how a given action can be characterized.

For example, I’m sure you’ve heard about brutal methods Zen teachers have been using for helping their students on the spiritual journey. Zen teachers have been using hits, jabs, and shouts to cut off a moment of thought. For the same purpose, they could through away a student from the window. As you can see, the action itself may look cruel, however, the motivation behind the action is noble. The Masters were not hurting their students out of anger or frustration but rather from the sense of compassion.

At the same time, we can see lots of violence in the world coming from anger, jealousy, hate, etc. In such cases, the motivation creates negative karma.

Thus, you can see that the same form of action can have radically different motivations that lead to different karma.

#3: Action

Now let’s talk about the action itself. People often believe that if you have the intention to do something bad but you couldn’t do it due to circumstances beyond your control, then it doesn’t count as a bad action.

However, according to the Divine Law, any action, complete or incomplete, causes the karmic effect.

However, during the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said: “You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘You shall not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.’ (Matthew 5:21) But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister, ‘Raca,’ is answerable to the court. And anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell.” (Matthew 5:22).

Thus, if a person has a desire to kill someone, but does not commit murder, for example, because of physical weakness or because of fear of punishment, it is not at all his choice, but rather it is just a coincidence. And if the circumstances had been different, he might well have carried out his plan.

Sermon on the Mount Image

Jesus also said: “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ (Matthew 5:27) But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” (Matthew 5:28)

Again, Jesus is talking about the fact that the inability to commit a vice does not release a person from responsibility.

We should always keep in mind that karma accumulates on three levels: the level of the body, speech, and mind. And if a person in his thoughts “executes” somebody — this is the same as he would do it on the physical level.

This is confirmed even by modern science – according to neuroscientist Jeremy Bennett, our brain does not distinguish real events from our fantasies and reacts to everything in the same way. Karma works the same way!

#4: Attitude to the Action

remorse image

This is the final stage of creating karma. There is an opinion that even if a person committed the most terrible act against, for example, his parents and his motivation was the vilest, but after committing the act, he realized that he was wrong, and sincerely repented — this will facilitate the retribution for the committed act.

But this rule also works in the opposite way. For example, if a person made a donation, but his motivation was selfish, for example, he learned about the law of karma and purely out of commercial interests decided to donate money so that even more would return to him, then, in this case, such an attitude to the completed action will affect the final result: either the reward for the act will come much later, or in a much smaller amount.

The Philosophy Behind

There are many examples of enlightened beings and great teachers who have committed seemingly immoral and terrible acts. But it is important to understand that they see reality somewhat more broadly and act out of compassion for their students, so they sometimes use various radical means to help them develop.

For example, the story of how the great yogi Marpa “mocked” his disciple Milarepa. And at first glance, it may seem that Marpa was just a sadist. But looking at the situation from the perspective of the situation itself is the same as evaluating the overall picture from one piece of the puzzle. If we consider the entire history of Milarepa’s life, it becomes clear that by his seemingly cruel actions, Marpa freed Milarepa from his karma so that he could develop.

Marpa and Milarepa Image

And perhaps the most important thing in our judgment of action is motivation. If we act out of good intentions, then our actions will always benefit others, and it is no longer so important who the objects of our actions will be and what our actions will look like for others.

And if you repent from what you have done, that can ease the accumulated karma. It is important that remorse is sincere and leads to actions that will allow you to neutralize the consequences of your “bad” actions as much as possible.

The reward from our actions, and how quickly the result will return to us, depends on the motivations and intentions mentioned above. And by analyzing your actions from the perspective of these four elements, you can manage your life.

Does Karma Exist?

Thus, karma does exist but the action itself is only the tip of the iceberg, it is only the form behind which the essence is hidden. And if you are judging actions only by the form, you can get only a very narrow perception, which may raise doubts that the law of karma even exists.

essential oils for money image

The benefits of essential oils and their ability to influence the psychoemotional state, attract subtle energies have been known since ancient times. With their help, you can achieve harmony, improve your mood, awaken creativity and even attract money. In this article, we will share with you 15 amazing essential oils for money attraction that will help you attune yourself to the energy of abundance and prosperity.

It’s More Common Than You Think!

Though it may sound new to you, essential oils for money attraction have been used since ancient times.

Ancient Eastern merchants, very rich people, before selling their goods, impregnated them with the aromas of essential oils. They did this in order not just to sell the product faster, but, more importantly, to attract a “perfect” buyer for the product – the one who would offer the highest price for it!

Nowadays, the knowledge about essential oils for money is widely used.

Hotels

It’s very common to use special scents in hotels to make guests always come back! Mina Vardar, Global Director of Rooms at Langham Hospitality Group, explains:

“Since smell is always linked to pleasure and well-being, emotion, and memory, it will help guests build stronger emotional connections with our staff and our hotel, and create a lasting impression. It makes the atmosphere at our hotels feel more inviting. I guess that it’s subliminal branding.”

Restaurants

Essential oils are often used in the restaurants for managing customers’ behavior – for making them stay longer, increasing their appetite, and even spending more money!

One study conducted in France tested lavender essential oil to see how it affects customers’ behavior. In experimental research, they found out that when exposed to lavender essential oil, customers were likely to spend more time in the restaurant (about 15 additional minutes) and spent 20% more on the final check.

Stores

It’s very common for the stores to use essential oils in a combination with music! And there is a reason for that!

One of the studies investigated the interplay between aromatherapy and the music played in the store. The customers’ evaluations of their shopping experience were enhanced when the ambient scent and background music matched.

For instance, researchers found that scenting the store with lavender scent combined with slow tempo music led to higher evaluations than using lavender paired with fast tempo music. Respectively, scenting the store with grapefruit scent combined with fast tempo music led to higher evaluations than using grapefruit with low arousal music.

As you can see essential oils are widely used for increasing sales, attracting customers, and increasing revenue. So why not to use them for your benefits?

Here are 15 very powerful essential oils for money attraction that you can use anytime to increase your income!

Healing Frequency List To Improve Your Meditation

Published

on

Healing Frequencies List Image

When we hear healing frequencies, our body and mind vibrate in harmony. We feel it when we hear Sanskrit chants or when we sit quietly and listen to the sound of rain. But how exactly does it work, how does sound heal us? And how do you choose the right kind of frequency for your meditations and healing sessions? In this article, I will answer these and many other questions. I’ll explain how healing frequencies work, how they affect your mind and your body and give you a healing frequency list with detailed explanations and benefits for each of them.

The Science Behind Sound Frequencies

Dr. Hans Jenny, a Swiss physician and natural scientist, has put together fascinating experiments in which we can literally “see” how sound works. Jenny became the founder of “cymatics”, having conducted a series of experiments.

Dr. Jenny claimed the existence of a subtle power based on the normal, symmetrical images made by sound waves. For his experiments, Jenny put sand, dust, and fluids on a metal plate connected to an oscillator which could produce a broad spectrum of frequencies. The sand or other substances were organized into different structures characterized by geometric shapes typical of the frequency of the vibration emitted by the oscillator. According to Jenny, these structures, reminiscent of the mandala and other forms recurring in nature, would be a manifestation of an invisible force field of the vibrational energy that generated it. He was particularly impressed by an observation that imposing a vocalization in ancient Sanskrit of Om the lycopodium powder formed a circle with a center point, one of the ways in which Om had been represented.

Studies originally done by Dr. Hans Jenny were repeated by other scientists. These studies show that when playing a toning sweep through a range of frequencies, there is a moment when chaos ensues when changing to another tone. The chaos occurs when the matter of any kind is rearranging itself into a new form based on the new frequency. The matter is designed to move away from the chaos and into form and vice versa, a never-ending cycle that occurs on all levels continuously from our cells to our universe.

The type of geometry represented by many Cymatics images contains reoccurring themes like spheres, hexagons, and spirals. These kinds of elements can be found in nature. Thus the theory of vibrational geometry of nature can bring us back into balance while the noise pollution and increasing electromagnetic fields around us can throw us off and even cause disease in our bodies.

Healing Frequencies

The concept that sound frequencies can actually alter human consciousness and promote healing has lots of sound scientific evidence behind the theory. By listening to different frequencies we can alleviate psychiatric issues such as depression or anxiety as well as stimulate the body to heal itself. 

Sound healing with the help of healing frequencies was a very common healing method widely used in Ancient Rome, Ancient Greece, and Egypt.

The famous physician, philosopher, and mathematician Pythagoras was convinced that certain frequencies had a healing effect on the body and that daily exposure to these frequencies was beneficial for health.

Later, these healing frequencies were also used by Christianity, when during the time of Pope Gregory the Great they were put as the basic tones of ancient Gregorian chants. There are references to at least 152 Gregorian hymns using these healing tones.

Gregorian chants were sung to embody spiritual blessings. The harmonious performance of these chants caused strong vibrations of certain frequencies. It was believed that these frequencies had healing powers, and indeed people observed healings and significant transformations.

What was known to our ancestors is now confirmed by modern science – a person instantly captures the frequency fluctuations of sound, and those, in turn, affect the entire biological system of a person, change the modes of operation of the brain, change the mental state, have a powerful regulatory effect on physical tissues.

Solfeggio Healing Frequencies Image

Solfeggio Frequencies

Solfeggio frequencies are nine healing tones that are in resonance with the bioenergetic centers of a person and are able to harmonize his biofield. Under the influence of these frequencies, the energy centers of the body find the natural vibrational balance. Biofield gets restored due to the resonance of sound vibration with the energy of the corresponding chakra.

In the mid-1970s, Dr. Joseph Puleo, physician and researcher, rediscovered six special tones, and later three additional tones were added to them.

As a result, today we have nine special Solfeggio frequencies. Seven of them relate directly to the seven chakras. Two additional frequencies affect the energy of the whole body.

These nine tones have the following frequencies: 174 Hz, 285 Hz, 396 Hz, 417 Hz, 528 Hz, 639 Hz, 741 Hz, 852 Hz, 963 Hz.

Healing Frequency List

Now let’s dive deeper into each of the nine healing frequencies and find out what effect they have on our minds and bodies. Here is the healing frequency list with a detailed description.

Healing Frequency 174 Hz: Pain Relief Tone

This is a basic healing frequency that is considered to be a natural anesthetic that relieves pain: both mental (stress) and physical. 147 Hz frequency resonates with the most elaborate structures of the body – those of the cerebral cortex, the typically “human” part of the brain that gives people the capacity to think, create and imagine.

The main benefits of using this frequency for your meditations and healing sessions are analgesic and muscle relaxing effects.

Benefits of 174 Hz Solfeggio Frequency:
  • helps with an intellectual organization;
  • manages mental disorders, nervousness, and worry;
  • reduces inflammation associated with injuries and infections;
  • reduces yellow scar tissue formed internally on tendons and ligaments.

Healing Frequency 285 Hz: Tissue Regeneration Tone

285 Hz sound frequencies are associated with the physical structure of our body. It works effectively to heal damaged tissues and organs due to its amazing ability to set healthy vibrations and thereby make the organs “remember” their original, healthy state. It is believed that exposure to this frequency relieves feelings of guilt and is responsible for natural rejuvenation.

This frequency is also associated with the animal kingdom and with non-organized, embryonic structures.

Main benefit of listening to this frequency is regeneration.

Benefits of 285 Hz Solfeggio Frequency:
  • improves nutritional metabolism and nutritional assimilation;
  • heals allergy;
  • balances the parasympathetic nervous system;
