Zen Meditation, Self-Hypnosis and Healing

“Not thinking about anything is Zen. Once you know this, walking, sitting, or lying down, everything you do is Zen.” – Bodhidharma by Michael Corthell Self-hypnosis occurs quite naturally in a relaxed state of mind. It takes place when a person purposefully and repeatedly thinks positive (or negative) thoughts and at the same time mixes these repetitious thoughts with strong, passionate emotions. In this way the thoughts and ideas become imprinted on the subconscious mind .  Your subconscious mind is very gullible, but is like a child; it needs to be told a thing multiple times so that it can be remembered. The self-induced hypnotic state can be clearly and simply defined as a heightened state of focused concentration. With auto or self-suggestion, you can change your thinking, reduce or quit bad habits, and take control of the person you are, as well as just relaxing and de-stressing from the worry and tension of everyday life. In short you can chan

Practicing Self Reflection, Silent Meditation and Self-Trust

"Sometimes the most valuable and efficient use of your time is to simply be still, allowing your mind and spirit to rest, recharge, and realign." Michael Corthell Silent meditation and self-reflection can be, and most often are, the most efficient use of your time. In a world that thrives on constant distractions and incessant noise, taking the time to sit in silence and turn inward can be a transformative and rejuvenating experience. In this fast-paced and interconnected age, it is easy to get caught up in external chaos, leaving little room for self-discovery and personal growth. Engaging in silent meditation allows you to detach from external stimuli and connect with your inner self. It provides a space for introspection, where you can observe your thoughts, emotions, and sensations without judgment or attachment. This process cultivates self-awareness and a deep understanding of your true nature. By pausing the constant mental chatter, you create a space

Zen Meditation | The Way of Zen

Meditation View Zen meditation, also known as Zazen, is a meditation technique rooted in Buddhist psychology. The goal of Zen meditation is to regulate attention. It’s sometimes referred to as a practice that involves “thinking about not thinking.”  ''Our life is frittered away by detail. An honest man has hardly need to count more than his ten fingers, or in extreme cases he may add his ten toes, and lump the rest. Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity!'' — Henry David Thoreau by Michael Corthell My goal in realizing a competent understanding of the world and the Universe around me is to simplify things as I see fit. It is for my benefit but if it helps others get a more precise picture of how this glorious living being we call the Universe or God operates, all the better, but please understand I am not telling anyone they should believe as I do. I simply ask that you consider what I say and my way of understanding reality. First up in the series of 'What I Believe

Healing Illness with the Power of the Subconscious Mind

by Michael Corthell ''The thing always happens that you really believe in, and the belief in a thing makes it happen.'' - Frank Lloyd Wright Your subconscious mind, the very gullible part of your mind that will believe anything you tell it, is there to inspire and guide you. It controls your heart, and circulation of blood, regulates your digestive, takes in, (and believes everything), and releases information. It also controls all the processes and functions of your body and it basically knows the answers to all your body's problems. It guards your life and restores you to health. It never sleeps or rests, it is active and working for you 24/7. The best part? You can tell it what to do! So why not use it? Healing yourself is strongly connected with others. Healing begins through loving your neighbors and forgiving your enemies.   Your subconscious has made your body what it is and, therefore, can recreate it — it knows how to heal, through positive

The Value of a Nap

“Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Conscious breathing is my anchor.” ― Thich Nhat Hanh We all need a thing that takes us out of our day to day, and reminds us that all will be well. Meditation, a nap, does that for me. Let it be. “The period between four and six in the morning is called the Brahmamuhurta, the Brahmic time, or divine period, and is a very sacred time to meditate.” ― Sri S. Satchidananda, The Yoga Sutras

Directed Consciousness

The more that you begin to understand that you alone create the world you experience, the more critical it becomes for you to discover just what kind of person is doing the creating.
