Why Meditate?

I have been meditating for over 40 years. In fact I am addicted to sitting still for an hour and completely letting go into the moment.  It brings me great peace and a quiet mind.
I first started meditating because I had gone through a messy divorce (emotionally) and I wanted to get rid of the suffering and pain I was feeling. I started with the simple technique of watching my breath and allowing the pain to surface. It was very uncomfortable in the beginning to just “let it be” but the more I breathed into my pain the more it dissolved and the lightness of peace appeared.
I recognised that all my suffering was from my busy mind. My thoughts kept going over the past trying to get rid of the pain but that just seemed to cause more pain.

In Ancient Chinese wisdom of the Tao, it says that “from the One(ness) comes the two (yin/yang) and from the two comes the three and from the three comes the 10 thousand things.” This is a description of how our minds create the world.

Quantum science now tells us that it is our thoughts that create the 3rd dimension, our world is made up of our thoughts, what they call our ‘personal perceptual bias’.

At 11 billion plus thoughts a second (right brain) we are creating our reality in the torsion field of our total consciousness. And only 7 to 12 thoughts a second are being picked up by our conscious linear thinking left brain. Continue reading

Letting Go 3 The path of Surrender

How To Let Go by Robert Kendall

“Letting Go is a simple method to reach great clarity and transcend your problems.
The way is not by finding the answers but by undoing the basis of the problem. The state reached by the great masters is available, the solutions are within us and easy to find.”
(Dr David Hawkins)

This article follows on from my two previous blogs on Letting Go – the path of surrender. Here I discuss how to let go our damaging, negative emotions and the stresses that accompany them.

You may use this practice  to reduce any distress or dysfunction, increase well-being and support a spiritual practice. It will take you on the path of Awakening. As you let go you may develop more joy, happiness, inner strength, clarity, inner peace, caring and insightful qualities within your own mind and nervous system. This will, in turn, begin to resolve or dissolve the difficulties that you might be experiencing  along your path, in your outer life with relationships, health and prosperity .

Research is now showing that long term chronic stress can shorten a person’s life by 9 to 14 years. It seems our genes have a direct link to our emotional brain.  Under stress genes that hold the patterns of disease will be switched on while the genes for immunity etc get suppressed. And when we are peaceful then the reverse occurs. Our genes hold the electrical DNA blueprint that life energy flows through.

Some stress is good for you, such as sports stress or getting out of the way of a Mac truck while crossing the road stress.
The problem is not with having stress, but how long we have had it. What do we do with all that emotional energy swirling around within our nervous system, brain and body parts? Continue reading

“Letting Go” Seminar

“Letting Go” of the internal Saboteur
by Robert Kendall B.AC Dip.Med.Herb mAACMA

This isn’t the part 3  of my Letting Go blogs, that is still to come. Shauna and I are giving a seminar on the Letting process on Saturday 19th July. So we wanted to send out the information for everyone to register.  Below is an article I wrote for our necanyon_man_1[1]wsletter at Xtrahealth Clinic.

I am often asked “how do I change and break the negative patterns that make me sick or tied or fat or lazy or anxious. What can I do to heal my body and bring peace to my mind?”

My answer is simple ‘Let go’ your stress, let go your worries, let go your negative emotions. I know this sounds too easy and we all know how hard it can be to face up to our internal fears and negative stresses.

Research has shown that we pick up 50% of our basic habits and attitudes by the age of 4; we pick up another 30% by the age of 8 and 10% more by the age of 14 years old. By 14 we have 90% of our basic habits and belief systems in place. We then spend the rest of our lives trying to figure them out and change them.

Do you know that the word ‘personality’ comes from the Greek word ‘persona’? In the ancient Greek theatre the actors used the happy and sad masks to portray what emotion they would be acting in. So if you have a great personality you have a great mask. We all have masks built up from early childhood and research is now showing that even our time in the womb and birthing experiences are the first energy blueprints laid down in our bodyminds.
