Law of Attraction in Action

Law of Attraction in Action | Application of Spiritual Principles and Tools | Scoop.it
Since the dawn of existence mankind has recognized that there was a mighty invisible force that governs and controls the universe and man has tried to understand and use this process. Each of us lives in a world of his own creation, built according to his predominant thoughts.

Today the majority of people are drifting through life with no idea of where they are going, allowing themselves to be at the mercy of chance, doubt and circumstance. The ones who are making progress are unconsciously using this force, which is the birthright of every individual. They didn’t need to learn how to do it any more than they needed to learn how to digest the food they ate. The scientific world is beginning to discover what metaphysical and spiritual teachers have known for centuries. Our physical universe is not really composed of any matter at all. Its basic component is a kind of force or essence which we call energy.

Meditation’s Effects on Emotion Shown to Persist

Meditation’s Effects on Emotion Shown to Persist | Application of Spiritual Principles and Tools | Scoop.it

Meditation affects a person’s brain function long after the act of meditation is over, according to new research.

 

“This is the first time meditation training has been shown to affect emotional processing in the brain outside of a meditative state,” said Gaelle Desbordes, Ph.D.

Meditation really does change our mood...and it's lasting change.

Damon Baragwanath's curator insight, August 19, 2013 10:59 PM

Personally I practice daily meditation and subjectively can vouch for the research results. Even without undergoing elaborate laboratory tests. Because you quite simply, feel the benefits yourself.

 

At a research level it has been well documented that meditation influences the nuerotransmitters in your brain, normalises blood pressure, reduces depression, anxiety and facilitates healing on the Physical, Mental and Emotional planes.

 

To conclude, if you've never experienced meditation then I highly recommend giving it a go. Although please begin slowly, be patient with yourself set small bite-size goals along the way e.g. On your intital meditation practice I'd recommend trying it for 10-15 mins and then over time increase your sessions by perhaps 5 mins each week up to a mximum of 30-60 mins.Ensure that you are warm and comfortable and focus soley on your breath - in and out, deep and slow whilst allowing thoughts to filter in and out of your mind.

 

Thank you

6 Benefits of Practicing Mindfulness Outside of Meditation

6 Benefits of Practicing Mindfulness Outside of Meditation | Application of Spiritual Principles and Tools | Scoop.it

How do you practice mindfulness outside of meditation?

 

Take three or four conscious breaths while resting your attention on the sensation of the breath coming in and going out of your body. You may have been aware of a sound, a smell, or maybe a bodily sensation other than the breath. Careful attention to whatever is happening in the present moment is the essence of mindfulness. The sensation of the breath is often used as an anchor because breathing is always present in the moment.

How Walking in Nature Prevents Depression

How Walking in Nature Prevents Depression | Application of Spiritual Principles and Tools | Scoop.it
A study finds that wild environments boost well-being by reducing obsessive, negative thoughts.

 

A group of researchers from Stanford University thought the nature effect might have something to do with reducing rumination, or as they describe it, “a maladaptive pattern of self-referential thought that is associated with heightened risk for depression and other mental illnesses.” Rumination is what happens when you get really sad, and you can’t stop thinking about your glumness and what’s causing it: the breakup, the layoff, that biting remark. Rumination shows up as increased activity in a brain region called the subgenual prefrontal cortex, a narrow band in the lower part of the brain that regulates negative emotions. If rumination continues for too long unabated, depression can set it.

Channeling Depression Into a Powerful Tool for Creativity

Channeling Depression Into a Powerful Tool for Creativity | Application of Spiritual Principles and Tools | Scoop.it

Decades of research have found that introversion, emotional sensitivity, and vulnerability to negativity—seeing the glass as half empty—are all common personality traits of highly creative people. They are also common symptoms of depression. In fact, artists and writers are eight to ten times as likely as the general population to suffer from mood disorders. Many studies speculate that this is because artists tend to examine their lives more deeply than the average person and that they draw on unpleasant experiences to feed their work.

 

“Creative people might be more likely to experience negative emotions,” says Wendy Berry Mendes, the Sarlo/Ekman associate professor of emotion at the University of California, San Francisco, who conducted a study while at Harvard University to look at how mood change can affect creativity. In one study, researchers measured levels of DHEAS (dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate), a hormone that when at lower-than-normal levels is associated with depression, before people received either harsh negative criticism or positive feedback in a mock job interview. Then the subjects were assigned a creative task. “Receiving negative compared to positive feedback was associated with enhanced creativity,” says Berry Mendes. “This was especially the case for individuals who had lower levels of DHEAS,” indicating they were predisposed to depression.
