STEPHANIE LUCAS: “7 Ways Mind – Body – Spirit Minded Warriors Tend to Do Things Differently…”

You know who they are… those people who constantly seem to draw the one-eyebrow lift, the rolling eyes, or the little ‘cuckoo’ finger twirl out of people they encounter. Like myself, you might even be one of the recipients of those subtle and not-so-subtle judgments or you may be the naysayer holding the gavel. It’s not likely the spiritual warrior is affected by anyone’s negative thoughts, because they very well know that they indeed tend to approach life differently.

1. They Speak of Energy and Vibration… Often

Let something come out slip out that’s derogatory or negative around a mind/body/spirit minded person and prepare to be reminded about the encompassing power of words as vibrational frequencies that are manifesting your reality. They may speak of subjects like quantum science, sacred geometry, Lightworkers, collective consciousness, universal energy, etc. They will often try to help you see the light, goodness, and lessons in all occurrences, particularly with challenging issues.

2. Happily Handle a Crisis with Class

Whether they are helping themselves or someone else, learning the lesson is a primary goal of an enlightened soul. From broken relationships and lost jobs to issues of a medical or external nature, there’s always a lesson to learn that can help you get over the issue and prevent its recurrence. Sometimes simply finding the GOOD and the BEAUTY in superficially negative situations can be relieving, freeing, and they are all part of the experience of the journey.

3. Their Idea of a Good Time Differs from the ‘Norm’

Mind – body – spirit minded people are likely to suggest a quiet night at home before meeting up at a club. They’re more likely to invite you to a festival or a retreat where yoga and meditation are on the menu instead of cocktails and juicy steaks. Reading and nature walks prevail over TV… while they are not spending their time partying, they aren’t planning for the future either but are busy Living in the Now. Even when it comes to vacationing, your ‘hippie-like’ friend may lean towards sweat lodges, eco-villages, educational vacations, or seemingly insane exotic wilderness treks.

4. They Believe in Unicorns, Dragons, Faeries, and Otherworldly Beings

While many of us may speak very boldly about riding unicorns and harboring fire-breathing dragons… or hanging out with Hobbits in the shire – rest assured, you will not see this in the physical realm – nor do we. Rather, spiritual people may see and communicate with these ‘friends’ along with faeries, sky Gods, and so forth while tinkering around in other realms. Many of us believe that we are from other realms (think Pleiadians, Arcturians) and are aware of our concurrent existence in other dimensions. Granted, part of this seemingly (but doubtfully) may relate to the fact that…

5. Some are Psychedelic Superstars

From Timothy Leary’s studies on LSD to today’s growing knowledge concerning the use of DMT/Ayahuasca to tap into the subconscious, the use of hallucinogens has been long studied but is still controversial. Either way, many metaphysical people use substances ranging from legal Dreaming Herbs to other psychedelic substances to further their journey to ascension, merge with their higher self, and to discover ultimate truths about themselves and the universe. I will plead the 5th.

6. They Often Opt Out of Politics, Prayer, and Programming

When I say ‘prayer,’ I refer to the type propelled by formal religion; however, the metaphysical warrior understands that all words, thoughts, affirmations, etc. ARE prayers of sorts – just not the kind to an ‘official’ God/Presence/Being. Spiritual people are more likely to offer to send you love and light and energy over a ‘prayer.’

Politics are often wasted on the spiritual being who tends to not place much power in institutions like the government. Many of my friends on the metaphysical path flat refuse to watch TV and some don’t even own one, nor care to. I guess TMZ’s latest revelation and endless zombies don’t have much a place for with those Living a 5-D existence.

7. Hip to Being Hyper Eco-conscious

Recycling is a must and the spiritual warrior is likely to give YOU the raised eyebrow look when you show up carrying one of those pesky, earth damaging plastic bottles of water… it may not be unusual to encounter some yellow being mellow in the bathroom… they are all about the car pool and hybrid autos – you get the picture.

What are some things you notice about people on the enlightened path? What do YOU do differently or find yourself leaning towards changing as you traverse your mind – body – spirit journey?

L.J. DEVON: “Meditating For Just A Few Minutes Each Day Reduces Stress While Boosting Feelings Of Happiness”

meditating-at-sunset

We are constantly taking information in through our corporeal senses. Technology and social media are constantly streaming noise, beliefs, news and chatter into our hearts and minds. When we stop to meditate, all the noise dissipates. In this moment, we can now take a deep breath and listen.

In the stillness, in the quiet, everything changes. We are no longer dependent on information from our material world. When we stop, listen and breathe, we can begin to connect with ourselves on a much deeper level.

As we focus our attention inward, into imagination and visualization, relaxation ensues. The heart and the mind are put at ease. As breathing slows, as tension is released, blood pressure can normalize. In this state, our greatest fears and anxieties can be addressed.

Meditation benefits mind, body and spirit

In the January 2014 issue of JAMA Internal Medicine, researchers published a comprehensive review on the benefits of meditation. Not only is meditation observed and documented as a way to relieve anxiety, but it can also be used as a means to reduce pain and manage depression. These benefits are all possible because the sympathetic nervous system is engaged and regulated more effectively for important functions such as oxygen intake through deep breathing, a steadier heart rate and lowered blood pressure.

Burke Lennihan, a registered nurse who teaches meditation at the Harvard University Center for Wellness, says the benefits of meditation extend beyond just the physical. “True, it will help you lower your blood pressure, but so much more: it can help your creativity, your intuition, your connection with your inner self,” she says.

Various forms of meditation help people heal in different ways

Many people, not recognizing it, have engaged in forms of meditation throughout their lives to cope with big decisions and life changes. Walking meditation or prayerful meditation are two common examples where one tunes out of the material world and focuses the mind, heart or breath. The benefits of meditation are even more powerful when practiced regularly as a discipline.

Concentration mediation teaches one how to direct and focus the mind to achieve desired results. Mindfulness meditation helps one address the negative thoughts that enter the mind so they can be dealt with in a healthy manner. Heart-centered mediation helps one bring awareness to the powerful energy center in the chest, helping one manage emotions and relationship difficulties. In Tai chi and qigong, mediation is combined with physical exercise to enhance breathing and focus. In transcendental meditation, one repeats a mantra, whether it’s a word, phrase or sound, to quiet thoughts and to achieve greater awareness of oneself and the connection to all living things.

Burke Lennihan says that the most powerful experience is when two or more people gather to meditate. When a teacher is present, a verbal guided visualization can be initiated to stimulate the meditative experience of individuals and the group as a whole. Giving feedback after a group meditation, whether to the group as a whole or to a friend, is a powerful experience as well, as illusions and judgments of one another are shattered.

Lennihan says meditation doesn’t have to be complex. It can as simple as doing deep breathing exercises. Meditation can be a launching pad to connect with oneself, filter out negativity, deprogram from social conditioning, or connect with others on a deeper level.

Lennihan says that it’s great to start with 10 minutes of quiet time each day, and to set aside a safe, quiet place. “You’ll build up a special feeling there, making it easier to get into a meditative state more quickly,” she says. Symbols, photos, candles, herbs, crystals, essential oils and articles of nature are often used to surround a meditation practice to make the experience more personal, centered and meaningful for the individual.

The practice of meditation is an important healing art that can be a useful vehicle for finding inner calm and inner strength in the most stressful situations in life. These self-control techniques can help one manage stress more effectively, slow the aging process and create more positive interactions with others.
