ECO-Meditation with Dawson Church, PhD

I was very impressed when I read Dawson Church‘s book, Mind to Matter. I had first learned about EFT, the Emotional Freedom Technique, several years ago, even practiced it for awhile, but had lost interest and moved on. Reading this book brought it back in an invigorating new way. Like acupuncture and acupressure, EFT is a set of finger tapping techniques which utilize the body’s energy meridian points. I learned that EFT provides relief from chronic pain, emotional problems, disorders, addictions, phobias, post traumatic stress disorder, and physical diseases. Church’s book provided invaluable links to online resources, including several videos that demonstrate the technique along with meditation.

What I found most interesting was Church’s combination of tapping, Heart Math, and meditation, in a technique he named ECO-Mediation (video).  Instead of taking hours, this method has helped people to reach a relaxed, meditative – even blissful – state in as little as 90 seconds! In just a few minutes, the autonomic system is relaxed, the “fight or flight” response is quieted, and the body begins to release endorphins. This state is the same as that achieved by master meditators with years of experience, but with this method a novice can do it!

Church’s method starts with EFT to clear the emotional state before relaxing. Dr. Mercola wrote that “This combination of tapping the energy meridians and voicing positive affirmation works to clear the “short-circuit” — the emotional block — from your body’s bioenergy system, thus restoring your mind and body’s balance, which is essential for optimal health and the healing of physical disease.”

Clearing that “short circuit” makes all the difference. After that, Church follows with a combination of deep breathing and Hearth Math that becomes the meditation. When I first tried the ECO meditation, using the video, I found that I quickly dropped into a deep state of relaxation – I don’t know if it’s his soothing voice, or his specific instructions, but it happened so quickly that I was astonished! I would highly recommend this method for people who have trouble meditating, or those who want to take their meditation practice to the next level.

Making It Through the Winter

The last several days of winter have seemed particularly snowy, dark, and icy. It’s been a struggle for many, with virulent viruses abounding, exacerbated by the bitterly cold weather. What has kept me going is the discipline of my daily routines: Qi Gong , meditation and exercise. My spirits are always lifted and I realize anew how rewarding is the ability to control one’s mind and body. Most recently, I have thought of the Buddhist monks who practice tummo , the art of controlling one’s body temperature through meditation

Cooking With Qi & Conquering Any Disease

Like so many of us, I’ve been watching my nutrition and eating healthfully for years, buying only organic food and the very freshest ingredients possible. Also years ago, I cut out those foods that are known to damage our systems. I thought I was doing well until I heard about Qigong Master Jeff Primack and his food based healing system.

Earthing: Reconnecting with the Power of the Earth

I first heard of “Earthing,” the concept of connecting to and gaining energy from direct contact with the Earth, several years ago. I learned that the ancient yogis and Christian mystics knew about this great source of power and for that reason developed practices that involved going out into caves or the desert and sleeping on the ground. It not only improved their meditations but reportedly healed sickness and extended longevity.

The Miracle of Castor Oil Packs by Merryn José

| by Merryn José

Merryn’s personal experience using castor oil packs for healing. ‘What I find most fascinating is that all parts of the castor plant are extremely poisonous to eat, but when the oil is extracted from the seed of the Ricinus communis plant, the poison remains in the seed, and it becomes “the oil that heals.”

A Machine To Help Lower Blood Pressure

I happened to be reading Andrew Weil’s website when I came across information on a small machine called RESPeRATE that actually helps lower blood pressure through paced breathing. Doing some additional research I found it had been favorably reported on NBC nightly news and had the stamp of approval from a number reliable sources. i.e. The Mayo Clinic, John Hopkins, Harvard Medical School, and AARP. This got me interested in finding out more about this little gadget not much bigger than a CD player.

The Great Mysteries: Believing, Knowing, & Proving

Growing up, I never thought twice about whether there was an afterlife, or if it was possible to see into the past or the future, or how one could see things and events at a remote distance. My mother was a psychic, as was her mother and her mother’s mother before her. I knew as a child that I had inherited the “second sight”…. As a result, when people asked me whether I believed in things such as life after death, the paranormal, distance healing, or the mind’s ability to affect matter, I would tell them, “I don’t believe it, I know it.”

Validating Your Spiritual Experience

Many years ago I, too, had what they now call an “STE,” or Spiritual Transformative Experience. Like others, I only told my mother and a few close friends at the time. In my case, I was fortunate in that it was not preceeded by an accident or life threatening illness, instead it came seemingly out of nowhere one evening. Just like a Near Death Experience, I was enveloped in light, spoke with guides, and felt the ecstatic bliss of unconditional love.

The Element of Uncertainty

| by Merryn Jose

Many years ago I used to make a living reading the Tarot cards, and teaching others how to do it. Coming from a long line of psychics, I grew up watching my Mum give readings from tea leaves and cards as well. Early on my mother taught me that people want to hear about their love life, their houses, their kids and their careers. Not only that, but she also said, “People want to hear certainty and specific outcomes — when will I meet the love of their life? When will I get a promotion? What is the best house for me?” I found that while I enjoyed helping people, I felt the burden of responsibility for not misguiding them or being so directive that they ignored other possibilities.
