MEDITATIONS

Friends -

My life has totally transformed these last few months and I’ve become a totally different person (in the best way!) I NEVER thought mediation would be for me. I took some classes, tried and tried, but sitting in black space alone with my thoughts was tough. It felt like I was failing all the time. So, I chalked it up to meditation just not being my thing.

Through the years I have searched and found some meditations that have bridged the gap. The one common thread was they helped GUIDE me through rather than leaving me alone in a world I couldn't be alone in YET. Here’s the thing friends, as much as I’m invested wholeheartedly in the self help world, the spiritual work and the life improvement work we do, this was an area I hadn’t really connected with. Well, enter Dr Joe Dispenza. I started with “The Formula” course online and my anxiety disappeared in 3 days. Seriously. From there I was hooked and went on the journey that culminated with a weeklong mediation event. I even did a 5 hour long meditation. Me!!! I did it because I was committed to my own healing and after seeing the testimonials of healings I was so in.

Below are some of my all time favorite meditations including the ones from Dr Joe that I love and a handful of others that have truly changed my life.

dr joe dispenza

Dr Joe’s passion can be found at the intersection of the latest findings from the fields of neuroscience, epigenetic, and quantum physics to explore the science behind spontaneous remissions. He uses that knowledge to teach people how to heal their bodies of health conditions, make significant changes in their lives, and evolve their consciousness. For me, Dr Joe’s Meditation’s are all about my healing – mind, body and soul. I interchange them depending on what I’m feeling and what I need, but it’s about creating my own life, creating my own future and knowing I’m in charge of it and I have the power. I feel more confident about my life after I do his meditations, they give me direction. 

The Pineal Gland Meditation I do between 1 and 4 am when my body naturally wakes up, my chair is right by my bed with my eye mask. Even though it’s trippy to do this for 90 minutes, when I get back in bed I feel like I’m in a cloud. Because of this meditation, my body has developed chemicals similar to valium and I sleep like a baby.

The Generating Change Meditation is really great if I’m getting tripped up in my day or I need to change my energy for something big and I don’t have a lot of time. Again, it reminds me that I’m in control of my destiny and gives me confidence and peace. 

I really love all of his meditations as they have changed my life. I recommend investing in his online course (The Formula Course) linked here and sold on his website. This is the one I started with. The other meditations I love from his website are the Blessing of The Energy Center’s 8, Walking Meditations 1 & 2, The Pineal Gland, Generating Change (this is the one I use before speeches and meetings), and Morning / Evening Meditations. Again, I interchange them depending on how I am feeling, but they are all really amazing. 

Below I have linked our two most recent episodes with Dr Joe, I highly recommend checking them out to get a feel for him and his teachings. Then, you can check out all his courses on his website. There are also numerous free meditations from him on YouTube, so check those out as well (I linked one free one below that is a short 20 minute morning meditation).

For any of the meditations I mentioned above, head to Dr Joe’s website: https://drjoedispenza.com/collections

Yogini Jaima

When Yogini Jaima was on the show she introduced us to Yoga Nidra and it personally changed my life! 

One session of Yoga Nidra is equivalent to hours of normal sleep. It’s called “nidra” because it activates the waves of the subconscious that are otherwise only active during sleep or deep states of meditation. I love how I am never left alone in this meditation. Jaima takes your awareness to different fingers and body parts, and you are an active participant in the meditation. But by the time you are done you feel so rested.

 

I love the Yoga Nidra that Jaima recorded special for our Heal Squad shown below, but if you don’t have 30 minutes, I also love this 20 minute one on YouTube: https://youtu.be/7H0FKzeuVVs
