Beat Depression Relieve Anxiety

Overlooked Cause of Anxiety, Depression, Migraines, Heart Attacks, and Cancer

What if the cure for stress, anxiety, and depression could never be found in a pill? What if the cure for migraines, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer could never be found in drugs, surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy?

anxietyWhat if the billions of dollars that we spend on the application of surgical and pharmaceutical cures is simply managing symptoms, while the root of our mental-emotional and physical ills evades us? What if we are failing to address the true cause?

Whether you’re aware of it or not, it’s likely you have a bias toward seeing everything in terms of physical cause and effect. In fact, this bias may be so ingrained, that you wonder what other possibility exists. After all, isn’t this what we’ve learned from science over the past several centuries?

What if this “reduction of everything to material causes” is simply a bias—and one that discounts the very source of mental-emotional stress and all kinds of illness? What if, instead, physical symptoms appear after they have manifested from a more primary layer of your being? What if treating this more primary layer could result in real cures?

In fact, this view is not all that far out. It has been recognized and documented for centuries in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Ayurvedic medicine, as well as in healing traditions such as Qigong and Reiki.

In all these disciplines it is recognized that the source of illness lies in the energetic dimension and it is communicated through to the physical within the bio-chemical, electro-magnetic, and connective tissue systems of your body.

Before you think that we’re talking about placebos and pseudo-science, did you know that Reiki is now accepted as complementary treatment in more than 800 hospitals in the U.S. alone? This is because it works.

Reiki has well-documented research showing that it improves patient sleep by 86 percent, reduces pain by 78 percent, and reduces anxiety by as much as 94 percent. In addition, it has been shown to increase speed of healing by as much as 50 percent. Pretty remarkable for a simple form of “energy work.”

O.K. so how does it work?

Reiki, Qigong, TCM, and Ayurvedic medicine begin by seeing the body as an expression of a more primary subtle energy system. Health is the result of the smooth free-flow of subtle energy through the energy body. Disease begins with the disruption of energy flow, with some blockage or tension that causes energy to become stagnant.

The cause of energy disruptions can be physical injuries which cause “emotional shock” such as from a car accident or, more commonly, they are the result of tensions caused by mental stress and emotional trauma. When tension and stress overwhelm our ability to handle them well in the moment, they become stored as tension in your “energy body.” These tensions disrupt energy flow. Left unresolved, over time, this is the seed from which illness grows—whether that is chronic anxiety, depression, migraines, digestive issues, heart attack, or cancer.

Subtle energy techniques aim to recognize, relax, and release that tension and restore the smooth flow of vital energy. This in turn enables your body’s own self-healing mechanisms to come back online so your body can heal itself.

Now, this doesn’t mean that there is never a use for drugs or surgery. These can be vital and life-saving first measures. These can manage immediate life-threatening symptoms. However, to facilitate true healing, we must work on an energetic level to restore the free flow of energy which characterizes good health.

What if you could learn to access this subtle energetic layer to facilitate your own health and well-being on a daily basis? What if doing this could release layers of tension that have accumulated in your energy body over the years, dragging down your energy, mood, health, and vitality?

That is the promise of energy meditation.

3 Easy Ways to Quiet Your Mind (and Feel More Joy)

Paying attention to your breathing is one of the ways to quiet your mindAre you aware of a dominant feeling that runs like an undercurrent through your life?

Or maybe it’s more of a subtle background state that seems to color everything that you say, do, and feel?

Maybe it’s a persistent feeling that you have when you wake up in the morning?

(For example, you might feel a constant pressure to be busy and get things done.  You might feel anxious about what the day might bring.  You might feel confused or depressed about your prospects and possibilities.)

What if you could feel peaceful, positive, and clear?

Let me show you three simple ways you can bring that soothing power into your life.

How you feel in your life has a lot to do with what’s going on in your head.  If you constantly hear thoughts telling you that “Life is a struggle,” “The economy is bad,” and “You aren’t enough,” these have a powerful impact on how you feel.

These thoughts are like a proverbial “dark cloud hanging over you.”

One of the defining moments of awakening is when you discover that you “are not” the thoughts you are “having.”  You witness the incessant chatter that drives you, distracts you, and seems like your constant companion and you realize that you don’t have to be defined by that.

At that moment, you realize that those words in your head really have little to do with you.  They also don’t reflect what is actually happening in the world.  You come to recognize that a majority of those words are just recorded messages from the past, the limiting thoughts of others, and random sounds from your environment.

Nevertheless, they are broadcasting through your head.

At that moment, you may get a strong urge to turn off that chatter, or at least turn down the volume, so it is less distracting.  The truth is–you can learn to do just that.

And it doesn’t have to take years of practice, just a little guiding of your attention.  Here are a few simple ways to turn down the mental volume and quiet your mind.  I encourage you to try them out as you read them.

Instead of just reading the words, pause at each one, and actually give it a try.  You may be surprised at how effective they are.  The great thing is, they take just a few moments.

3 Ways to Quiet Your Mind

1. See if you can listen to the chatter as an outside observer.  See if you can separate “who you are” from those words in your head.  Listen to them with an attitude of amused curiosity.  Smiling while you do this can help.

Allow the words to come and go through your mind without hanging onto any of them.  Just watch them come and go.  You could say, “Hey, they’re just thoughts; they don’t define me or what I can do.”  As you give your thoughts less importance, they lose their grip on your attention.

Here’s a guided meditation audio that can help you

Take a minute to observe your mental chatter with a smile.

2. Focus on something else.  If you become completely immersed in paying attention to something besides your thoughts, you’ll notice that your mind quiets down.

For example, place your hands on your abdomen and become aware of your breathing.  See if it’s possible to notice the moment when your inhale begins; follow your in-breath all the way through to a natural pause; notice the moment your exhale begins; follow that all the way through to a natural pause–and repeat.

Become absolutely interested in following your breathing as if nothing else matters at this moment.  Within a few breathing cycles, your mind quiets.  Try it for yourself.

3. Ask yourself the question: “Who is thinking?”  Then sit and be content that you really have no answer for that.

Don’t try to make up an answer….

Just notice how your mind becomes quiet in the face of that question.  Try it for yourself and see what happens.

Those are three great ways to get a taste of a quieter mind– a mind that isn’t consumed by incessant thinking, and, therefore, comes to rest in a natural peace.

As you get a taste of that, you may discover that you want to experience more of it–you want to go deeper and have the experience stay with you longer.

If so, I strongly recommend you get my Core Energy Meditation Program. It’s the only truly holistic meditation practice that soothes and integrates all dimensions of your being – mind, heart, body and spirit.

Soon a quiet mind can become your dominant background state and your life can feel so much more peaceful, positive, and clear.

Enjoy your practice!
