How to Meditate?

There really is no right or wrong with Meditation. What works for one person may not work for the next. So what feels right for your instincts and intuition is usually 99.9999% right for you. Trust your gut instincts.

Below is a helpful 5 step guide on where to start if you are a beginner. Remember, everything takes practice – it is unlikely you will be meditating for three hours non-stop for your first session.

A Brief Introduction: Tao, Taoism, Tao Te Ching & Lao Tze

The snow goose need not bathe to make itself white.
Neither need you do anything but be yourself.

Lao Tze – Tao Te Ching

Who is Lao Tze

The author of Tao Te Ching (pronounced ‘Dao De Jing’) – a classic Chinese text which heavily influenced Chinese Philosophy – is a fundamental book for the Philosophy and Religion Taoism.

What is Taoism 
Taoism emphasizes the importance of living in harmony with the Tao (Chinese translation ‘The Way’). Taoism refers to Tao as the source, pattern and substance of everything in between. The ethics of Taoism begin with effortless action, naturalness, simplicity, spontaneity and the three treasures – Compassion, Frugality and Humility.

Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom.
Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power.”

Lao Tze – Tao Te Ching

What is Tao – The Way
“Tao is the source of all Universes. Tao is the Universal principles and laws. Millions of people in history have searched for Tao, studied Tao and practiced Tao, but only a very small number of people in history have accomplished and reached the goal of Tao.”

Time is a created thing. To say ‘I don’t have time,’ is like saying, ‘I don’t want to.

Manifesting: Unblocking Your Path

‘The trick with manifestation is not to talk about it, but to do it. You can tell everyone your plan, you can ask the universe to support you, you can even hold a special fire ceremony to usher it into realization, but it won’t mean anything if you don’t ground it in reality. If you are having trouble manifesting, look honestly and lovingly at what may be in the way – unresolved emotional issues, shame and self-doubt, preliminary practical steps. Don’t sit and spin – work genuinely on what is blocking your path. And, then when you are ready, channel that energy into constructive action. If you have a dream – DO IT into being.’

Let’s Invite Each Other Higher

‘I often try to imagine a world where we are not in competition with our fellow humans, but where we truly, madly, deeply soulebrate when others actualize their dreams. Imagine that. A world where we get excited for each other when we achieve – where we do not see another’s accomplishments as a reminder of what we have not yet actualized – but as living proof that it is possible for all of us. I love it when people accomplish something they have set out to do, when the phoenix rises from the ashes with actualization on its wings. Let’s invite each other higher. Let’s encourage each other to believe in our shared magnificence!’
