20140723-115259.jpgDay 3 – Meditations on Anger

Thought for the day: Today I acknowledge any feelings of anger and allow them to harmlessly pass by

Daily Quote:
The science for transformation of life is called meditation. Through analysis, physical science reaches the atom and atomic power, but meditation reaches the soul and soul power.” ~Osho

Today’s message from Osho is on anger, and how best to deal with it and other negative emotions.

He spoke about repression vs. expression–that people are often stuck either on one extreme or even between them.

If you hold on to anger, more likely the anger will build, and there will be time when anger erupts. Then again, what if anger is expressed in such a way that could hurt others?

In the process of what I call a very intense Spiritual and personal growth over the last two years and I am sure for many, many more years to come, I have been facing a lot of things from my past, my baggages, and many more to grow and be a better soulful, loving, and mindful person.

Although I already believed in reincarnation and soul growth, when I heard… “You are a Spiritual being having a human experience,” by Pierre Teilhard de Chardan, spoken by several people, the more I heard it, the more I came to understand and the more willing I was to face things I had avoided. And when I do face obstacles, I am beginning to automatically ask myself, “what is it I need to learn from this person/situation?”

Over the last few weeks, I have been constantly reminded to become an observer in my life. Whether I am facing deep emotions, learning lessons, or things just seem out of control, I am to step back and become an impartial observer to see why and how I am reacting, what the true issue really is, and the possible solutions and answers (from a loving standpoint) to what I am working on in order to release, heal, or forgive.

Interestingly enough, being an observer is the solution Osho presented today. It seems like I am being reminded again. 😉

From the course:
We pour our energy into anger, then only does it become vital. It has no energy of its own; it depends on our cooperation. In watching, the cooperation is broken; you are no more supporting it. It will be there, for a few moments, a few minutes, and then it will be gone. Finding no roots in you, finding you unavailable, seeing that you are far away, a watcher on the hills, it will dissipate, it will disappear. And that disappearance is beautiful. That disappearance is a great experience.”

Osho follows up with a process for a meditation that will help break the pattern of accumulation of anger over and over again. This is helpful until you have a chance to face your anger and what triggers it, and take the necessary steps to forgive and heal.

20140425-053446.jpgThis is the second week of Oprah and Deepak Chopra’s Finding Your Flow Meditation Experience. Week two focuses on connecting with the seven chakra centers to “build a grounded state of peace and possibility.” Week two will activate what we found within last week.

So far, we have experienced the following meditations (earlier posts below):
Day 5: Finding Expression (Ham)
Day 6: Finding Wisdom (Om)
Day 7: Finding Consciousness (Sahasrara Im)
Day 8: Activating Security (Om Dakini Namaha)
Day 9: Activating Happiness (Om Rakini Namaha)
Day 10: Activating Power (Om Lakini Namaha)
Day 11: Activating Love (Om Kakini Namaha)


20140425-054111.jpgToday we activate the 5th Chakra, the Throat Chakra, which will help us to fully express our truth and our most authentic selves. In doing so, we can immerse ourselves in “creative unlimited joy!”

When we express our truth and vision, we create a better inner reality for us, one that is more positive. It is akin to choosing how to perceive our experiences–choosing to be happy, choosing to see love, rather than fear, etc. We are set free, and we can be in a more optimistic space, able to share kindness, love, forgiveness, and be willing and able to take more risks in life, for better fulfillment in it.

Today’s centering thought is “my life energy expresses its truth.”

Today’s Sanskrit mantra is Om Shakini Namaha, which means “I activate my creativity.”

20140418-051224.jpgI am grateful for day 5 of Oprah and Deepak Chopra’s Finding Your Flow Meditation Experience.

So far, we have had the following meditations:
Day 1: Finding Security (Lam)
Day 2: Finding Happiness (Yam)
Day 3: Finding Power (Ram)
Day 4: Finding Love (Vam)

Day 5’s meditation is on “Finding Expression (Ham).”

It is about learning to listen to the subtle guidance within to fully and creatively express what we have come here, in this life, to do and be all that we are supposed to be.

Today’s centering thought is “my truth and creativity are within.”

Today’s Sanskrit mantra is Ham, which means “I am creativity.”
