Essentially human being is formed of two major components; body and soul. Most of us would be aware of this fact but very few of us would actually do something for their spiritual awakening. Just because we the soul within our body is intangible it doesn’t diminishes its importance by any means. In fact in today’s so called modern world if at all one within we all need is being awake to the reality of our inner self. Our lives are so busy that we don’t get enough time to realize and ask even simple questions to ourselves; why are after all we there. There must be a greater reason for us to exist or are we just there to slog ourselves day and night to earn a livelihood.
Definition of happiness is changed, the only thing which perhaps brings happiness is the physical world around us and that is perhaps exactly the reason why our happiness is so short-lived. Things around us are constantly changing and so are our feeling, moods and emotions with them. Physical world around us today is dictating its terms on us and therefore it becomes all the more important for all of us to break these shackles and look for eternal happiness and the reason why we exist.
The only way in which we can get answers to these important questions in life is through spiritual awakening. For most of us the doors to the spiritual world are shut today and there is an urgent need to open these closed doors. Behind these doors you will experience a whole new world which will give your life a new meaning and purpose. There are also many misconceptions associated exploring of spiritual side. Many people think there are some magic tricks or witchcraft that one has to master in order to be spiritually aware. Few also believe that entering into spiritual world would mean saying good bye to the current physical world we live in.
Exploring your spiritual side is neither learning art of magic nor living a life of seclusion from worldly pleasures. It just involves understanding your inner self and the powers therein. Thereafter you can channelize these powers towards different forms and get desired results. One just needs willingness and determination to learn all this and he or she can improve their lives by leaps and bounds. Acquiring Psychic abilities is one of the simple ways through which you can explore your spiritual side. There are many experienced teachers who can train you in becoming a Psychic and there are no real preconditions attached to it. Anyone who desires and wishes to acquire these skills can acquire them and it is not required to have any special abilities before learning this art.
The power of the mind is yet to be fully explored. Whatever is known to mankind is just the tip of the iceberg. The mind is the most powerful organ in our body and perhaps the most complex one as well. A very sick man can refuse to give up and carry on to get well and at the same time, a perfectly healthy man can get sick and meet his end if his mind is not in the right frame. Hypertension is one of the most common diseases today found in young and old alike. Often it is found that the root cause of this disease is in the thoughts which take place in our mind. Just the thoughts in our minds would affect the proper functioning of the body and its health.
Let us take the case of medicines. To some people, the same medicine works wonders while for others it remains ineffective. This is mostly due to the fact of the mindset of the person having this medicine. If the patient who is taking the medicine keeps on questioning the effectiveness of medicine it is bound to lessen its effectiveness. While on the other hand if a patient has a strong belief that by taking this medicine he will get instant relief from an alignment, it does happen this way. There is also the other extreme to it, there are people who believe is that they do not need medicine and their current medical condition will get all right my little change in their lifestyles or daily routines, and believe me this works. This set of people do get well without even getting any medical advice or medicine. It is the power of the mind which instructs and sends positive vibes down the body and heals the alignment.
Most of us are aware that our actions have a direct bearing on the physical life around us. But very few people believe it is the thoughts behind our actions that lead to this change. The power of the mind is channelized can be directed to achieve results which will hard to even believe for many. One of how you can recognize the power of the mind and how to control physical aspects of our life through it is by becoming a Psychic. Psychics are people who are more aware of the capabilities of their mind and put it use in such a manner that they can achieve some unbelievable outcomes. Things which might seem impossible for the common man can be easily done by people who have greater control over their mind.
Becoming a Psychic is also something that is not very difficult. An average human being can do it with some determination, concentration, and sincerity. You may look and search online for the courses which guarantee to make you psychic.
Here they are again. And the hype begins. To one degree or another, unless we’re a fully awakened being unaffected by all outer circumstances, the Holidays Season is chaotic. Even if we don’t celebrate the holidays in any traditional sense or do so without the need for becoming an instant consumer, their affects are in the air. All the buzz including traffic, music, parties, street and store decorations; it’s hard to be immune.
So if I’m having one of those days where the outer chaos turned on the busy chatter in my mind, I practice Natural Meditation (NM). Doesn’t matter if I’ve already meditated that morning, meditation is an ally any time of day.
The nice thing about NM is that once you understand the parameters, you can do it walking around or sitting still. In the beginning you might want to try sitting quietly for 10-20 minutes in a comfortable position, eyes closed and simply observe every thought or distraction that is creating havoc with the moment. Take deep, slow breaths and simply sit quietly, giving yourself an opportunity to relax all current activity, agitation, and thinking. Without judgment or reaction to whatever arises on your mental screen, allow yourself to be with everything that’s vying for your attention. Similar to how you’d be when sitting in a movie theater, allow every thought, feeling or sensation to be as it is without having to do anything about them. Your only task is to sit quietly for however long you decide to sit prior to starting – maybe just 10 minutes at first.
Give yourself a chance to experience the moment-to-moment desires, thoughts, and possible discomforts just as they occur. Notice the urge to get up or interact with a thought or impulse, without having to react to it. See if you can sit quietly and observe the what’s happening without engaging. All you do is sit quietly and take notice. The idea is to consciously observe and experience what goes on within and around you. You may begin to see your interaction with your thoughts and sensations as a mirror for how you respond to distractions of any kind when not meditating. Since awareness is the first step toward change, this on-site laboratory for studying our behavior gives us an opportunity to view our otherwise unconscious reactions. Once aware of our reactions, we have the advantage of choosing to follow a thought or impulse or merely watch what floats by.
Since meditation allows us to calm down, it becomes a peaceful break or puts a brake on impulsive behaviors. Cultivating this simple practice of NM will eventually allow you to create a peaceful place within yourself in the middle of any situation. Then, when it becomes easier, you can apply it to everyday life whether sitting or walking around.
