Using Meditation – good for our brains, bodies, and health as well as our minds and spirits!
Meditation can also reduce your blood pressure, encourage heart health and give you a relaxation response.
Using Meditation – some useful techniques
Meditation techniques I have experienced and find useful are:-
- Guided meditation– listening to a DVD, podcast or some kind of kind recording that guides the meditator through the process, great for relaxing.
- Autogenics – a mind-body process using internally repeated phrases in the head to program a strong relaxation response – very easy to do, anytime, anywhere and some processes literally take only two minutes. Here’s a link to a useful site.
- Moving meditations – I find tai chi and yoga to be great meditative techniques as well as body toning, stretching or relaxing exercise since they are both disciplines which encourage energy flow through the body as well as relaxation in the mind.
- Nia is a moving meditation, similar to free dance.
- UCL® Tai Chi, a combination of Tai Chi and energy balancing techniques.
- Shamanic journeying – listening to a drumming CD, laying down, eyes closed, whilst focusing on a particular question or area of life. I learned this skill with two different Shamanic practitioners. (You need to spend some time with a Shamanic Practitioner to learn this and be prepared to write down or journal your notes afterward. This is an ancient practice, still very effective in modern times!)
Using meditation every day can be very easy to do
You don’t need to twist yourself into a pretzel or play music if you’d prefer not to.
I recently wrote this post with examples of three simple ways to meditate. If you’re new to meditation and wondering where to start, you may find it useful.
Also below see a video from the MedMob movement with more information.
Interested in learning more about meditation?
I can recommend meditation techniques specifically for you with an Akashic Records Reading.
I recently watched the movie ‘Heal’ (available on Netflix) and was very interested to see some in-depth research on people who experienced remission from chronic illness.
In this post I list the 9 ways research showed people experienced remission from illness, diet can be part of it but the research clearly shows that deepening your spiritual connection — whatever that means to you — plays a big part in healing.

I enjoy traveling to power spots and feeling the unusual energy of the location. On a recent trip to the UK (my homeland), I visited Stonehenge, Avebury, and Glastonbury, known for it’s Tor and the Arthurian legends arising from its’ history.
I hope you enjoy this tour of a power spot. I’d highly recommend a visit to Glastonbury if you get the opportunity.
While in Stonehenge I found a book by Jeremy White called ‘Raising the Runes’. The next day I realized Jeremy was giving myself and my friend our tour of Glastonbury!
Jeremy is a Shaman who’s mission is to teach us how to use the Runes for meditation and divination, and that the ancient Elder Futhark Runes are still relevant in modern life.
