It has been proved that the regular practise of meditation increases concentration, memory, creativity and mind-body connection.
It is also good for dealing with stress, physical pain and even traumatic experiences.
Since Monday mornings seem to be a major cause of stress for most people by the simple act of being, it felt natural that Monday should be the day to post a meditation. If you are lucky and can sit on the tube, or bus, you can listen to this one on the way to work, to empty your mind of any negative thoughts associated with the day ahead, otherwise, you can listen to it on the way back from work, to erase any leftover worries before you set foot on your home.
Meditation is a great way to cut the flow of negative thoughts that only increase our stress and feed our fears. By gently focusing the mind on something completely different to what we are normally thinking about, we also give the brain a chance to find creative solutions to our everyday problems. It’s impossible to find a new solution to the same old problem if you keep having the same old thoughts, or as Einstein put it:
“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”
This Inner Child meditation, guided by Dr. Hew Len, will help you heal your subconscious mind in a gentle, kind way, while it lulls you into a deeply relaxed state.
Dr. Len is a practitioner of Ho’oponopono. He believes in “cleaning” past memories in order to change and heal the present. For more about Ho’oponopono, including another Ho’oponopono meditation, you can read here.
In this meditation, he identifies the subconscious mind with the Inner Child and the conscious mind with the Mother. This is clearly explained in the video before the meditation takes place.
A great exercise to relieve stress as it heals different aspects of life: love, finance, health.
Remember that meditation will relax your body as well as your mind, therefore, never listen to audio or videos while driving or performing any other task.
To avoid falling asleep (which would result in really peaceful and deep sleep, but would not fulfil the purpose of this meditation) sit comfortably either in a chair or the floor. Body temperature drops as we relax, so you may want to have a throw close by 🙂
