The dictionary defines VORTEX as a whirling mass of air or water, in which a force of suction operates, creating a visible column or spiral. We literally see this in a tornado or a whirlpool and we respect the power of such a force. We understand that if we get too close to it, we will get sucked in and be powerless against it.

Up until recently, after countless hours of attempts and disappointments, I had decided that meditation was overrated; it was too hard; I wasn’t doing it right; there was a secret that the experts weren’t sharing. At the very least, I had decided that meditation was not for me! Why would I want to sit still, with my eyes closed for fifteen minutes, doing nothing if I didn’t perceive a benefit? No thank you!

Any Baby Boomers out there will probably remember a TV show called “The Match Game.” Contestants were given an incomplete sentence and they had to fill in the blank. For example, “Dumb Dora was so dumb, that instead of a lunchbox, she packed her son’s lunch in a ____________.” Continue reading
One of my favorite things in the world is the “Getting Into The Vortex~Guided Meditation” by Jerry and Esther Hicks. Notice, I didn’t say one of my favorite books or one of my favorite CD’s. It’s both of those things, yet I think of it more as a tool. The BEST tool I have found for living a happier life. I know that sounds like a ridiculous statement, but sometimes we do sound ridiculous when we talk about our favorite things. So forgive me, but I really love this tool! Continue reading
When you wear contact lenses, you need to visit the Eye Doctor every two years, in order to refill your prescription. A few weeks ago when I inserted my last pair of contacts, I heard myself having a not-so-nice conversation in my head that sounded something like this: Continue reading
It is just over eight months since I began meditating as part of my daily routine. I am excited about this, as meditation was something that, up until now, I never really “got.” I tried many different techniques at different times without appreciable results and had basically given up. I had decided all the people who boasted about the benefits of meditation were either lying or there was a secret to it they weren’t sharing. Continue reading
And that’s <clap>what it’s all <clap> about <clap, clap>
I take that back. Meditation is not what it’s all about ~ Feeling Good is what it’s all about! Meditation is just a tool to help get us there. And if you ask me, (which I realize you didn’t, but hey~it’s my blog!) there’s no faster, better, easier form of meditation than Abraham-Hicks “Getting Into The Vortex Guided Meditation”.
And if you’re anything like me, when you decide to begin a new habit that’s supposedly good for you, you definitely want to notice results quickly, unmistakably and easily, or you’re likely to give up on it.
So why am I standing on this meditation soapbox? Admittedly, I am no expert in the practice of meditation. I’m a nurse, a coach and a Mom and aside from the few classes I’ve taken and books I’ve read on meditation, I’ve had no formal training on this subject. Yet here I am, blogging about a practice that I have only recently added to my routine, as if I’m an authority. Who do I think I am anyway? I’m simply someone who, when they find something they like, shares it. And when I find something I love; something that takes just 15 minutes a day and makes everyday better, I write about it~ And create a workshop to share it with others. So here’s why…
Meditating regularly can help you:
1. Feel happier
2. Relieve chronic pain
3. Strengthen your Immune System
4. Feel more energy
5. Focus and pay attention more easily
6. Sleep better
7. Handle stress more effectively
8. Enjoy and appreciate every minute of every day more fully.
Add those all together and you’ve got a world-class recipe for feeling good.
And when you feel good, you vibrate at a higher frequency than when you feel not-so-good.
And when you vibrate at a higher frequency, you attract things on a higher frequency.
And chances are almost certain, that all the things and experiences and relationships and health and wealth and happiness you want are at that higher frequency.
And the only way to get them is to be a vibrational match to them.
In summary, meditate!
If you’re already doing it, I’d love to hear your experiences and techniques.
If you’re not already doing it, at the very least, go buy the book and give it a try. And at the very best, join us in this workshop which begins TONIGHT, Wednesday August 1st at 8PM EST. (Is it really August already?!?!)
I’m confident you will say “this is one of THE BEST things I’ve ever done~in my entire life!” Seriously!
At one time or another, we’ve probably been told to “take a deep breath.” Although it may have been by your doctor or nurse, chances are a friend said it to you if you were stressed or anxious. I never realized what excellent advice that was until recently. Now, I find comfort in knowing that no matter what has me feeling not-so-great, I always (fingers crossed!) have the ability to take and appreciate taking a nice, deep breath. Continue reading
In the last post we discussed how our Immune System is affected by our mental attitude and touched on the fact that research shows the practice of meditation improves our immune response. He (the Ph.D. who gave the seminar AND did the research) said that people with weakened Immune Systems showed a vast improvement when they meditated on a regular basis.
This is very good news…if you meditate. My experience tells me that most people don’t, which I find completely understandable, because MEDITATION IS BORING! At least that’s what I used to think. Continue reading
