Online Meditation Music

There’s plenty of online meditation music available if you know where to look for it.

The trouble is, a lot of it is available on the various file sharing networks, so the copyright situation isn’t always as clear cut as it could be. Given that you’re looking for meditation music, it wouldn’t be good karma if you downloaded an illegal track.

So where can you get online meditation music legally?

Recently, I’ve discovered a place where for a small, one off, charge you get access to a selection of meditation, relaxation, “zoning” and other tracks. They’re in MP3 format and you can download them to burn them to your own CDs or put them on your iPod.

All the tracks are fully licensed, so you’ve no need to worry about copyright implications.

They upload tracks on a regular basis, so you’ll always have a supply of fresh meditation music to listen to.

Subliminal Videos Review

Subliminal messages are kind of weird, especially when they’re hidden inside subliminal videos. With computers, they flash up on your screen and then disappear before you consciously notice them.

I’ve recently discovered some subliminal videos. All you do is play them through for no more than 20 minutes a day. Watch them, listen to the soundtrack. That’s it. There are 3 videos in the set and between them they run for about 8 minutes. I play them through twice, first thing in the morning (so that I remember to do it!).

The outrageous claim is that you’ll earn an extra $5,000 a day just by doing this.

I’m not sure that I believe that, but I do believe that they’ve tweaked my consciousness to attract more money and I’ve made a little bit extra over the couple of weeks I’ve been watching them.

They come with a warning not to watch them for more than 20 minutes a day. I can vouch for that warning! A friend watched these subliminal videos for about an hour and was bouncing all over the place. You could hear the change (for the better) in his voice. So something is definitely going on in them.

Centerpointe Review

Centerpointe is a high tech way of meditating:

Simply place the Centerpointe CD in your player, put on the headphones, sit back and listen.

The Centerpointe system works by playing two slightly different tones, one into each ear. This is disguised by the natural sound of rainfall, which makes for a relaxing meditation session.
There are two tracks on the CD you’ll receive. When you first get them, you’re advised to just play the first track. I strongly recommend that you follow this suggestion! Continue reading

Sedona Method review

The Sedona method is really simple. Maybe too simple, that’s why it takes quite a few listenings before our mind comes to terms with the ideas contained in it.

The Sedona technique was devised by a man called Lester Levenson. At the age of 42, his doctors sent him home to die. But he decided that he’d rather not take their advice! So within 3 months he completely recovered and lived for another 40, happy, years.

What you’ll learn with the Sedona method is how to do the same with your life.

A number of years ago, I went on a 2 day course locally to learn the technique. But far and away the easiest way to apply it is to get the CD course, listen to it and work through the example exercises.

The Sedona method has personally helped me with my goal setting – I used the technique to visualize my current house. I set a deadline of 6 months and then promptly forgot about it (that’s the way I work quite a lot of the time, I get distracted). Anyway, the upshot of it was that within that 6 month time line, I’d moved into my new house, which was exactly as I’d described.

Other people I know have used the Sedona method to become completely relaxed and grounded.

In a nutshell, with the Sedona method, you’re asking yourself a series of 3 questions: “Would I”, “Could I”, “When”. Each answer should either be “Yes” or “No”. Apart from that, there are no right or wrong answers! And because it’s so simple, your conscious mind kicks in and says “That can’t be right. Nothing can be that simple!”. So we need a CD set or seminar to get the idea into our minds that it really is that simple!

The logic behind the Sedona method is that we do one of three things with our feelings:

  1. Suppress them, bottle them up, let our stomach tie itself in knots
  2. Express them, get angry – usually with someone else
  3. Let them drift away

The first option does us no good and is why we attract dis-ease.

The second option usually does us some good but it isn’t much fun to be on the receiving end of.

The third option is the best all round.

Take a pen in your hand – we’ll use this as a simple analogy for feelings.

Grip the pen tighter and tighter. It hurts, doesn’t it?

Then open your hand and let the pen roll around. It does that quite happily!

Now turn your hand over and hear the satisfying thud as the pen hits the floor.

You can do exactly the same with your feelings. For feelings, read anything from apathy, grief, jealousy, anger, pride, through to courageousness or peace… Anything from the driver who’s just cut you up to the satisfaction of getting your latest project out perfectly.

And that’s the Sedona method.

Secrets of Meditation review

Matt Clarkson’s “Secrets of Meditation, Health and Happiness” comes on 4 audio CD’s.

The first CD gives an overview of meditation. In this, Matt discusses the main reasons that meditation is beneficial. He also looks at the myth that meditation is something that takes years to master – this isn’t true and he looks at why even meditating for just a few minutes a day is easy for us to achieve and is beneficial to the way we live our lives. Matt also explodes several other myths about meditation. He gives a clear, simple explanation of meditation and the benefits of doing even a handful of minutes meditation each day. Continue reading
