A. I get that Maharishi Mahesh really was an enlightened individual. The meditation techniques that he developed during his contact with his higher self were valuable and effective for those that practiced and applied them to their lives.
Then I ask myself Why it is so expensive to learn this techniques? and a couple answers pull forward. The first I get is that the technique is relatively easy. You don't need special skills or tools to do it, just a belief in yourself that it will work and the discipline to do it. From this Yogi's perspective, I get that he feels that if he charges for this technique it makes it "feel" more valuable than to show people this technique and tell them how powerful it is. Associating money to it gives it a different "feel."
Then I am shown this example that someone goes to a dollar store and buys a pair of socks- they feel "indifferent" to the fact that they have a new pair of socks. Then that same person receives the same pair of socks from a high-end store in a pretty box with a big bow- they are ecstatic. Same socks, different delivery (different emotional value and different feeling of worth).
I also get that when this Yogi began to share the knowledge (and tied tangible value to it), he got a taste for making money. It was not his driving force, but it helped (as a motivator) as he went through the process. At first he was compensating for the time and energy it took to present these techniques, and then he realized he could make money (and a lot of it). Money was not his goal or focus, but it did become a factor later.
Q. Dear Lynn, Do you feel that Cameron Day is truly a highly evolved being? How could he know or "remember" all the information if it is true? Do you feel what was written on this article about the deceptive and corrupt layer involving what we have commonly called the arch-angels (such as arch-angel Michael), angels, the lord of Karma, etc. that prevent humans from reaching to the true Divine Source/Energy is accurate? http://www.ascensionhelp.com/blog/2013/08/23/why-i-am-no-longer-a-light-worker/ If that is true, then we humans only have us - our Higher-Self and the Divine Source to "rely upon"?
A. (First, I want to say very thought provoking article!). When I focus on this article and Cameron Day, the word "evolved" isn't what I want to say, but rather the term "in tune with the Universe." I get the impression that he means well (I feel a genuine compassion in his words), but he is somehow missing parts of the message he is receiving. I see that the message being sent is one of accountability and empowerment within ones self- and we have the tools to have the life we want (like the Law of Attraction)- his focus is on that aspect (focus on the individual) and falls short of the beautiful energy that is abundantly there. I get that some of what is discussed is true, but the negativity (disbelief) directed at light-workers or absence of positive ETs (or true guardians) does not resonate with me. There are beings that exist on a much higher vibration than what we as humans do within our physical human body- and those beings do want to help us, and when called upon they (and it is in our greater good) will help to provide insight. They don't take control, but rather give us gentle nudges in what would be our best interest if we chose to listen.
There is also darkness out there as well. The universe is about balance, so all high vibrations have an equally matched lower vibration. Staying and maintaining that high frequency keeps you stay in alignment with other higher frequency beings.
The message of relying on only yourself is a (semi) good message, but feels incomplete. It promotes self-esteem and an inner strength, but it also creates a sense of loneliness that can be intimidating and overwhelming. Many people have had experiences with higher beings (via guides, angels, guardians or even ETs [I feel it is a different name used to describe a similar energy]) that support their existence.
Q. Hi Lynn. There is a group of people worldwide who suffer very intense physical and emotional symptoms which hit them spontaneously, for a few hours to a few days. Doctors have no answers or cures for them. Many of these folks believe they are "forerunners" or "first wavers", helping Gaia to transform. What do you make of this? Are these folks truly on a divine mission? Thanks for your input.
A. I see waves of energy blow over people, and it hits some people resulting in rather intense side effects. The most common effect (coming to me) is exhaustion. I see someone standing and from no where a wave of energy envelopes them and just takes everything from them to where they feel they cannot stand or take a step. For sensitive people, or people in the process of ascending to the next spiritual level, it can be startling how fast this overcomes you.
What I see happening (and I see a tuning fork to better explain this) is their vibration is actually changing . The frequency that you are operating in changes, and can leave you with physical, emotional or even sensory feelings that are difficult to explain.
Making sure you get adequate rest is essential in working through this process (I see every system in your body needing to realign). I also see soaking in a salt water bath (Epsom or sea salt) can be helpful too. I see both (working in different ways) help to balance the body and systems out during this process.
Q. Can you talk about meditation? How do you do it? What are the benefits? Where do you begin if you can't "quiet" your mind? How do you overcome frustration? [This answer is drawn from person experience, experiences with others and intuitive impressions.]
A. I first want to say there is no wrong way to meditate, the important thing is that you try. If you find a way that works for you, brings you inner peace and allows you to gain perspective- do it. I also want to say that you may be able to improve your technique to be more effective. (I hear the message "there is always room for improvement.").
Why is meditating important?
A. I asked myself this while I was meditating, and I was shown that we all naturally want to maintain an elevated vibration (I visualized a person floating upward automatically). It feels good and this higher vibration is the frequency in which we do our best. What happens is as we go through life things "attach" to us (essential "pull us down" and may be where this phrase comes from?). It could be negative comments, outside influences, negativity that others have attracted that overflows onto you, etc. In my meditation this "stuff" was referred to as "noise." This "noise" vibrates at a lower frequency, so when it attaches to you it brings down your naturally higher vibration and makes you feel bad because you aren't operating at the frequency that you do your best. When you meditate you are in tune with your true self (absence the noise), and when you do so it allows you to shed the negativity and start to operate at your higher frequency (you begin to float back up). Depending on how much "noise" you are carrying, it could take several meditations, but have the intent (or faith) that it will go away, and it will.
How do I ask a question? How do I tune in on what I want to know?
Before you begin, set your intention. You can think about this for a few minutes or even ponder something all day. Have in your mind what you want to know before you begin to meditate, and then expect that you will find your answers.
How do you begin to meditate?
A. There are a few ways. There are guided techniques where someone talks you through the experience. These can be in person, or via a recording (YouTube is a great resource or free meditations). You listen to the words as they are spoken, and go from there. You will be instructed to relax each part of your body, and focus on how relaxed you are (use the focus on your body to forget the environment around you). From there you allow random thoughts to enter your mind. The thoughts may give you answers, or allow you subconscious to enjoy the freedom of free flow so an answer can come to you later.
After you have this experience you may want to meditate on your own. You mimic the technique that you learned during a guided session, and repeat it. You may even learn with experience to modify your technique to what works for you. You may want a deep meditation that relaxes your entire body, in which case you go through the entire experience, or you may just need to clear your mind for a moment and you mentally clear your thoughts for a few minutes (I refer to this as a mini meditation) to allow you subconscious a moment to peek through.
How do you quiet your mind and get in that zone? What if you can't focus?
A. There are things you can do to help with this. I will break down some of them:
Environment: Try to get to the quietest place possible. Environmental sounds can be hard to shut out if you are easily distracted.
- Music: Some people use music as a way to distract their mind from other thoughts or worries. Focus intently on the sounds, the beat, the feeling etc. You may have to play with what music you use, but it can be very helpful.
- Position: Experiment with sitting and laying down. You want to be comfortable and not in pain. If you are distracted by back pain or pins/needles from your body falling asleep, it is hard to ignore.
- Location: Go where you feel good. It may be your yard, a park, beach or bath. The important thing is that you are able to relax.
- Smells: Some people respond well to different smells. Candles, oils or herbs can offer the mental focus (and sometimes stimulation) that allows to you to get in the right mental place.
- Visualizations: If you focus on an image (water, moon, sun, sky) in your mind or even a color, that allows you to distract from outside thoughts.
- Start small: If a full out meditation is too much, start with small meditations. Drive with the radio off or stand quietly in the shower. Allow you mind to freely think...
How do you overcome frustrations with meditation (or frustrations in getting your answers)?
The main thing is to be patient. Anxiousness to get an answer can even effect your meditation- let things flow and don't focus on the answer- it will come in time. You may not get your answer instantly- often you will get it the next day unexpectedly. You will have clarity or inspiration from what feels like nowhere. Allow things to process, and it will come to you.
Don't give up! You may only be able to go for a few minutes before you find yourself distracted. Meditation is a mental exercise, and you do get better with practice. Repetition is your friend!
[I also encourage anyone with advice to leave a comment and let this serve as a way to share different methods. There is so much on this topic, and I just touched on the main things that came to me.]
And that is all I have for now. Thank you. Love and light-
