Do affirmations really work?

 

An affirmation is a positive statement that is true.

In order to believe that affirmations work, you have to first believe in the power of positive thinking. Do you believe a person when he/she compliments you or says something nice to you? If your answer yes, then you may have a positive reaction to affirmations.

Specifically, an affirmation should be something that is realistic in order for it to be successful. For example, an appropriate affirmation could be, ‘I will eat healthy meals and exercise as much as I can.’ Eating healthy and regular exercise is a reasonable and realistic goal for most people. An unrealistic goal would be something like, ‘I will be the King of England.’ Unless you are The Duke of Cambridge, this is a highly unlikely scenario.

In conclusion, for affirmations to work, you have to have reasonable goals and a desire to be successful in your affirmations.

Happy meditating! 🙂

Welcome Facebook followers

I have now linked facebook “global relaxation” with WordPress so I do hope it will work out OK. I am sure all will be fine. I now have some time off work, and although it is time away from my position as Cabin Crew with Virgin Blue Airlines, I am still continuing to work here at home – although I classify working at home more of ‘playing’ at home. I really do enjoy working from home so much. So what do I do? Well maybe now is a good enough time to tell you than any other time.

Firstly, I run an ebay shop. This shop consists of meditation CD’s, crystals and semi-precious stones, spiritual books and new age gifts. THis store is only a few years old however it is only now beginning to take off. You can see the store here:  http://stores.ebay.com.au/beginitnowlifecoaching

Now to fill that store I also create and produce meditation CD’s – these include recorded guided meditation CD’s, brainwave entrainment CD’s, meditation music CD’s and Nature Series soundtrack CD’s. These are all for sale from my store and will soon be available from http://www.globalrelaxation.com (This store is not open as I write this, but will be very soon! Stay tuned)

Now I am also keeping busy building up my ‘fan page’ for global relaxation on Facebook. It is here: http://www.facebook.com/globalrelaxation

The reason for this is to create a page where like minded people can get together and discuss similar ideas and topics – and then share our experiences and questions and answers that we may have. Face book is a great way to do this as so many people ‘tune in’ to Facebook.

So I continue to have lots to do – although it never seems like a chore. Lately I have been so busy that I have been getting up from bed, having a cup of tea before I take my dogs for a walk on the beach, and being on the computer for 2 hours working on sites prior to even beginning the day ahead.  This is ok, as long as I monitor this and do everything in moderation.

Thank you for reading my blog and please leave any comments – even just to say hello – that would be special for me.

Many Blessings and Namaste!

Every day is a step closer to my life of freedom

And when I say freedom, I mean that as in “free” in body mind and spirit. I feel my mind has much less clutter and angst. I am at peace so much more than I ever have been in my life. My physical body since beginning yoga is becoming more open and free – and my assertiveness is freeing me from the constraints of others expectations.

I feel I am closer to God. Closer to where I am meant to be. It feels right. I do less work yet the money still comes in – and possibly more money than  I have had before -this is not about boasting by any means, but rather it confirms for me that when your mind set changes, your environment, your world changes too.

Recently I have opened a Facebook page called GLOBAL RELAXATION – where the sub title is “creating a global relaxation community… peace by peace.”

Please meet me there sometime and join in. Any contributions are greatly appreciated. The address is http://facebook.com/globalrelaxation

Namsate –

Jason.

Meditation in the workplace?

Can meditation in the workplace work?  I certainly think so, and I am not the only one. Actually I am really surprised that out of my working life, not one organization has introduced it. Having worked in the disability field for over 15 years, there was never one meditation/relaxation program that I can remember attending. And yet the job of working with people with varying mental illness and disabilities can be quite stressful on staff to say the least.

Why has meditation been overlooked? Just simply overlooked (because it could be such a simple way to alleviate stress for all involved – in and out of the employment sector.) It seems organizations can put in place  ways to deal with problems ONCE they happen, but there are not enough preventative measures to stop these ‘fall-outs’ from even beginning to take place.

Another reason it may have been overlooked is that employers have underestimated the value of meditation.  It’s possible that ten minutes a day of meditation may change  production levels to massive highs over time and  reduce sick days. Initially, the employer may just be looking at the cost of losing ten minutes in production time from every employee. And yes I am sure that could equate to a lot of time – however, what if the benefits of the meditation far outweighed the loss of time?

It’s time to begin people. If you operate a work place, introduce it to all of your employees. They may just end up looking forward to that break each and every day. It may be their only peace that they get both in and out of the work environment. Begin to monitor team morale, sick leave, and production levels and I have a feeling your will find there will be much more gain in all areas then any loss!

I have created a CD called “The Ripple Effect” that has quick 10 minute  brainwave meditation tracks on it. You can get it here: The Ripple Effect.

So How does this CD work?

This CD has 4 supercharged relaxation brainwave entrainment audio tracks on it that use Isochronic tones and Binaural Beats to send your body and mind quickly and easily into a relaxed state of mind. Just slip on your headphones, push play button and let this CD do its work to adjust your neural patterns in your mind.

We created this with you AND your work colleagues in mind – so you can create a ripple effect of peace and calmness within your organisation – just by being more of who you truly are. A calm and centred professional who actually can hold it all together. Your colleagues will be that surprised they may even want to try it themselves. I hope you will share it with them.

Here’s what the CD consists of:

Track 1

10 minute Stress Relief

This is a short 10 Hz relaxation session, ideal for stress relief or as a quick break from daily worries. White noise is heard over the tones to create a gentle over wash sound.

This session also uses a technique called Dissociation which is particularly useful for people who are restless and have trouble relaxing. Headphones are  required. Uses LEFT and RIGHT Isochronic Tones

Track 2

10 minutes at the beach

This is another short 10 Hz relaxation session, ideal for stress relief or as a quick break from daily worries. Take yourself to the ocean shore and listen as the sea gulls fly overhead. The waves themselves will bring you down to a centred state of mind, whilst the binaural beats relax you and ease your tensions within your body.

Track 3

15 minute vacation from worries

Got a few minutes more? This track may be the one for you.

A short alpha relaxation session, ideal as a 15 minute vacation from daily worries.

 Using wind chimes and left and right Isochronic tones, this is a short 10 Hz Alpha relaxation session, ideal as a 15 minute vacation from your daily worries and stressors at work.

This session also uses a protocol which alternates stimulation between the left and right ears and eyes, which is particularly useful for people who are hyperactive.  This one will really do the job for you!

Track 4

25 minute Day Dream Meditation

OK, so you have had a MAJOR meltdown and you feel like you are past the point of no return… there is no way out! Well, so you have previously thought. Now with this 25 minute supercharged  binaural beat 10 Hz session, you can come out the other side of the blackness well centred and ready to jump straight back into work again – but this time with a much clearer, focussed body, mind and spirit.

This is a 10 Hz Alpha session, called “Daydream Meditation” because the session approximates the state of mind people are in when deeply involved in a  daydream. (A musical string background comes and goes with floating dream like ambiance). Note that this session uses binaural beats so headphones are required for maximum results. This track will really take you into an altered state of consciousness for 25 minutes and bring you back out again – ready to turn your organisation into a fully  CALM and COOL organised working environment.
