Beautiful Travel: 9-Minute Meditation
Travel opportunities are gifts, whether we are make them happen or they happen to us. It's such a beautiful chance to see a different part of the world, whether it's an hour away or on the other side of the world.
Oftentimes, we get too stressed and overwrought with the travel to enjoy it. What happens most of the time is that we are so mind-centered and lost in or heads that we wake up when the trip is over, and say, "Can't believe it's time to go home."
Yes, travel can be stressful, but we don't need to miss the beauty and love offered to us through travel. Because travel presents enormous opportunities to open the mind, heart and spirit, I don't want anyone to miss these opportunities.
Meditation is a great way to prepare the mind, the heart and body for the wonders of travel. We need to be ready, open and present to experience the gifts it offers. This quick, 9-minute mantra-centered meditation should help.
On this site, I offer short, guided meditations that address specific issues and themes. I use a lot of different techniques from breath work to visualization and mudra. Though I know the benefit of guided meditations, there is a lot to be said for meditating without guidance, and instead either meditating in silence or with music/sound. Sounds can be ultra healing and helpful when it comes to letting the mind relax into the right state for meditation. Just like a guided meditation, they can be a catalyst for a clear and beautiful practice.
I wanted to find the perfect type of sound or music, not only for my yoga classes, but for my own personal meditations. I found two wonderful sources:
Isochronic Tones & Binaural Beats: You can get a specific set of tones for any outcome you want to see in your meditation, just like my guided meditations bring you to a certain benefit. These mp3 tracks provide brainwave entrainment in order to bring about cognitive, physical and emotional benefits. These audios reset your brainwave frequency to bring about any number of specific, healing outcomes. I’m a light sleeper so their sleep audios really helped me by adjusting my brainwaves to set up for some delta wave sleep.
Paleo Mind: So along those same brainwaves, these beautiful sounds change the way your brain communicates with the rest of your body. They actually change the way you think and feel, and with the help of this music, raise your vibration. We can affect the way the nervous system communicates. And therefore, change the whole game of how we are in the world. Try Paleo Mind if you’re not sure about Isochronic Tones above. These tracks are also geared toward specific benefits like Chakra Healing, Pure Positivity, Deep Sleep, Energy Booster and Total Focus. Love them.
Both of the options for brainwave treatment above are instant downloads. So if you’re sick of my voice, then try one of these awesome ways to get the perfect sound for your meditations.
MEDITATION & YOGA:
Crystals and gems are highly interactive with their environments. They absorb, store and emit energy and information. Because of their stable makeup, they can store all kinds of information and emit it out into the world. They react to the input of someone's energy and information (like a mantra or intention). Likewise, they emit a certain vibration frequency that could alter the energy field (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual) of the person or other energy form in their immediate environment.
This obviously leads to energetic change. Healing, uplifting, cleansing, empowering, inspiring, energizing, magnifying, balancing, restoring. Depending on the crystal with its specific benefits and your own intention, a crystal could be your catalyst. Powerful tools for meditation and yoga.
