Meditations Session Ten: Trusting Life and Going Into Fulfilment Through the Care of Mind, Body, and Soul for Happiness and Love

Preface This week was trying on account of two factors. Firstly, I turned thirty-one. And, for me, birthdays always cause me to step back and evaluate my life in a very objective, measured way, which is something I typically don’t do in my day-to-day life; however, when you reach a milestone, such as a birthday, youContinue reading “Meditations Session Ten: Trusting Life and Going Into Fulfilment Through the Care of Mind, Body, and Soul for Happiness and Love”

Meditations: Sessions Seven through Nine: The Subjective Nature of Experience, The Will, and Perception

I’ve recently done some inner exploration with the help of organic plant based entheogens (Contact your local South American Shaman for details), and the experience has been nothing short of life altering – literally changing my MBTI Type from ENFP to ENTJ. Basically, I got to experience reality without bias, without complexes, and without the filter ofContinue reading “Meditations: Sessions Seven through Nine: The Subjective Nature of Experience, The Will, and Perception”

Finding Eden Again

I enjoy spending my sunsets seated comfortably on a soft Mexican blanket, facing the calm, placid shore near my home. This evening, I sat relaxedly listening to the ankle high waves falling softly on the shoreline, and I became transfixed by the steady, ceaseless rhythm of their arrival. In a moment, the tranquil, soothing sound ofContinue reading “Finding Eden Again”

A Walking Meditation: On Oneness, Overcoming Fear, and Mastering Perception

Meditating on the beach this morning and feeling my fearful heart beating in my chest, anxious and over-paced, just like all of us – I started thinking about what the hell I was so afraid of. And so, I lie in the sand looking up and thinking about this, asking , how can my soulContinue reading “A Walking Meditation: On Oneness, Overcoming Fear, and Mastering Perception”

Meditations Session Six: The Immortal Soul, Embracing the Tribe, and This Thing Called Life

In accordance with my Meditations, and in the spirit of my original Transcendental Realizations, I dove deep into my mind the other night on a journey of loving self discovery. My intention with this spiritual and meditative journey was to go deep within my psyche and do some healing to remove the subconscious barriers standingContinue reading “Meditations Session Six: The Immortal Soul, Embracing the Tribe, and This Thing Called Life”

Meditations: Session Five – On Desire

I used a new guided meditation tonight, from my favorite Meditation Guide, Paul Santisi. It’s a neat guided meditation, and really exercises your imagination as well. You can check it out here: I’m looking forward to repeating this. Below are the notes taken after my meditation, per usual – and while this my most succinct setContinue reading “Meditations: Session Five – On Desire”

Meditations: Session Four – On Fear

Edit / Update {9/28/2014} I’ve since some to the realization that fear is not tempered by courage, but by faith, and I’m coming to understand that spirituality is the backbone for creating the confident self-talk that will allow you to overcome fear. Also, my discovery and journey into Outwitting The Devil, the following quote, which supportsContinue reading “Meditations: Session Four – On Fear”

Meditations: Session Three

I took less than a page of notes in my notebook after the third session in my meditations practice. I suspect this could be a result of the fact that I didn’t set a clear enough intention going into this session. I was also a bit clouded by frustration and expectation; however, I got exactlyContinue reading “Meditations: Session Three”

Meditations: Session Two

Continuing my Meditations Series, tonight I’m transcribing my handwritten notes from Session Two. (Technically, the third session, as my first session was recorded in the entry Transcendental Realizations.) I should state that, as in each of my meditation sessions, the notes taken after meditating were a direct result of the intentions that I consciously decidedContinue reading “Meditations: Session Two”

Meditations Session One: On Stories and The Waking Dream, Self-Worth, and Happiness

Update: 11/5/2014 I’ve just published a new entry on story and personal mythology, which this compliments excellently – enjoy. Technically, these are the second set of notes originated through my newfound journey into meditation. The first were published in my entry: Transcendental Realizations. Per my previous post, I am going to attempt to make aContinue reading “Meditations Session One: On Stories and The Waking Dream, Self-Worth, and Happiness”

Transcendental Realizations

I had an experience recently that opened my eyes to a kind of transcendence of the self. Some call it self-realization, ego-death or awakening. It’s difficult to even write about because it was not a conscious, reality based experience. In fact I’ve been waiting to publish this because I wanted to give myself time toContinue reading “Transcendental Realizations”
