What is Ukiyo And Why Is It Good For Your Health?

Screen Shot 2016-01-26 at 10.05.34 am

UKIYO- ‘The Floating World’. How beautiful.

This Japanese word is something that I seek to embrace daily. Often I can feel myself getting pulled into life’s stories.

“Will this venture work out?”

“What if no one turns up to my event?”

“Why did I say that?”

“How will I find the time to get all of this done?”

Do you find there are times when you get pulled into the expectations of life, the gossipping stories, the fear of the unknown? When I feel this occurring I come back to my base. This is where I ‘float’, in this blissful moment called NOW. In this moment, when there are only my 5 senses, what I see, taste, touch, hear and smell, a simplicity exists. Life slows down, and I find myself floating effortlessly. Peace arrives and bliss prevails.

To master the art of ukiyo I recommend two things:

  1. Mindfulness: the act of being aware of the content of the mind and having authority over those thoughts, selectively choosing where your mind goes.
  2. Meditation: the act of sitting in stillness daily using either a mantra or focus  on the breath to still the mind.

Our minds are becoming busier and busier with today’s flood of information. Last night at our group meditation session I asked a few people why they wanted to learn to meditate. Most of them said to help remove the static of all the thoughts so they could think more clearly and to slow life down.

The challenge with this, as one woman said, is where do we find the time to meditate daily? It’s a great question. How we allocate actions to our time is all a preference. We all have 24 hours in our day and those 24 hours comprise of 3 blocks of 20 minutes in each hour. Which gives us 72 blocks of 20 minutes to seek fulfilment with your actions. TV, work, Facebook, gym, sleep, eating, personal hygiene, making love, reading, etc etc. Why do we do it all? To be fulfilled. So if your current actions aren’t delivering fulfilment to you, then make some adjustments. Tweak your day a bit. Once I set aside 2 out of 72 blocks of 20 minutes to meditate, my entire world changed for the better.

Over time, I began to master ukiyo. It’s still a work in progress mind you. See how you go, after reading this, sit for a few moments and take in the world around you through your 5 senses.

What do you taste?

What do you feel?

What do you smell?

What do you hear?

What do you see?

Let go of needing to be somewhere, be someone or do something. Just BE.

You will notice you will be calmer, you will sleep better, you will have more energy, and you will think more clearly and creatively. Over stimulation of the mind leads to over-stimulation of the body. Your body is a complex web of moving parts and intelligence and it requires optimal conditions to function optimally. Restfulness is where our body’s restore balance and health is achieved. By practicing ukiyo daily, you will be improving the conditions for your body to achieve optimal health. Sounds incredibly simple doesn’t it? Maybe it is…

After all, we are human BEings, not a human DOings yeh? What do you think? I’d love to hear your thoughts on this below…

How To Master Meditation

meditating face

“I tried it and it didn’t work.”
“There’s no way I could do that!”
“I’m a hopeless fail at doing it.”
“My mind is too busy to do it.”

These are just some of the things I’ve heard lately when discussing meditation with people that I’ve met during my travels. Recently I even read a blog by a yoga teacher of 15 years who wrote:
“In the 15 years thus far of my yoga journey, the act of meditation has always been difficult for me.”

So after studying meditation for 20 years now and hearing how many people believe that meditation is hard, difficult or impossible to do, I felt it was time for me to shed some light on this subject.

Firstly there are many ways to meditate. Some of them will require force or effort, and some will be easy and effortless. Let’s face it, if it’s difficult and an uncomfortable experience, the likelihood of you sustaining this meditation practice will be close to zero! I know some people who believe that if meditation is easy and not difficult, then you aren’t really meditating. I recall one yoga teacher tell me once that the meditation technique I use is like the MacDonald’s of meditation, because its too convenient and easy.

“Hello? What?”

I’ve sat in meditation for 20 minutes twice a day for nearly 20 years now. It’s a very charming proposition, because it’s such an enjoyable experience. This is what keeps me coming back to the practice. It’s a very tangible, blissful experience. If there was friction and force, it would be uncomfortable and not compelling at all. Hence, why many people ‘try’ to meditate and give up early on in the piece.

Recently I taught a lovely guy who had ‘tried’ to meditate for years. He thought it was time to get some structure with his meditation practice so he came and did my weekend course. You should have seen his face when he came out of his first meditation…he was in awe of how deep and easy it was after all those years of ‘trying’. The next week he sent me this:

“A MASSIVE THANK YOU! for the other weekend. What a transformational experience! I can’t even begin to describe the positive effects the meditation you taught has had on me so far. I’m calmer, more peaceful and just all round feeling so much better. I feel truly blessed to have been a part of this, you’re a good soul dude and I can’t thank you enough.”

So why is it that some meditations are easy and some not so easy?

Two reasons:

1. The nature of the mind is that it is always seeking greater charm. This is why our addiction to our phones has occurred because we are feeding our minds with constant information which is like a sugar addiction. So to force the mind to ‘not think’ is like asking a drug addict to go cold turkey. This is where the use of mantras or stillness sounds come in. When you receive your meditation sound from a qualified teacher that you repeat inside your head, the process becomes effortless and easy because the mind is fascinated and charmed by the repetition of the sound. This is just like a baby being soothed by having it’s back patted and stroked. Eventually it will be lulled into a deep restful state. So rather than forcing the mind to be still, we have soothed it to become still. This is effortless and easy.

2. Lack of understanding about the body and it’s role in your meditation. Most people think meditation is all about stilling the mind or connecting to a higher self. When teaching meditation I start with the most basic element- your BODY.

Let me ask you a question…what’s the point of stilling the mind anyway? What is the goal in that? Seriously.

Why still the mind if it doesn’t help you feel good?

And your ‘feeling’s’ are all in the body. So it’s as much about your body as it is about anything else.

Many teachings of meditation fail to embrace this aspect of meditation. The thing with our body is it’s storing stress in it, so if you do manage to still your mind in meditation, then your body will drop into a very deep state of metabolic rest. Once in this deep state of rest, your body will begin to release stress and restore balance. This process will manifest in so many different ways. From feelings of agitation, fear, anger, lightness, twitches, spasms, falling asleep, coughing or simply having lots of thoughts. Without understanding why this is all happening will be very confusing and why many people stop meditating.

Last week I was teaching employees of a company how to meditate and most of the people in the room were sharing how they were feeling relaxed and in deep states during the meditation. One lady said she didn’t think she could do it and wasn’t sure if it was for her. I asked her to explain to me what she experienced during her meditation. She said at different times she would get an ear ache, waves of fear in her chest, short of breath, pressure in her forehead and at times her head kept nodding down like she was falling asleep.

I asked her if all this stopped when she finished her meditation. She said yes.

“Awesome!” I said. “You are an expert meditator!”

These are all indications that you are having a marvellous meditation with lots of re-organising and un-stressing occurring in the body. Without this knowledge one is led to believe that the supposed goal of stillness was not attained and so the meditation was a big fail. Not so. Many things will occur in a meditation, and possibly, just possibly, you might even experience some stillness. But this will be rare due to the high levels of stress in the body that will be released when we meditate.

So next time you are ‘trying’ to meditate and finding it frustrating and difficult, perhaps research other techniques or seek professional guidance.

Are You An Addict?

dove

As we are all friends here, let’s be really open and candid with each other. I have had many addictions in my life. If you know anything of my ‘previous’ life you will know those addictions led to darkness, anxiety and turmoil. And I’m not alone. Most of us have an addiction of some sort, only a lot of the time we just aren’t aware of it.

Are You An Addict?

Let’s be honest with each other. Think about your life, is there something that you feel you HAVE to have daily or weekly? Is there something that you crave and if you don’t get it, you feel empty and down? And when you do get it, you feel awesome! Perhaps it’s ice cream, chocolate, alcohol, sex, gambling, coffee, coffee, coffee…did I mention coffee???

So what drives this addiction?

The same thing that drives ALL of our actions, the quest for fulfilment.

Everything we do, is driven by the search for fulfilment.

I get really excited when people enquire about meditation in the hope to recover from an addiction. “YES!” I say. “Great news.”

Addicts make great meditators! Why? Because the driving force behind an addiction is to seek something else, a higher experience. My belief is that we aren’t actually addicted to the drugs, the alcohol, the coffee or sex. We are addicted to the sensation we experience when we are having it, and that sensation is one of an enhancement of life.

Admittedly, it doesn’t last long, which is why we have to return back to the source of what made us feel good temporarily and get another dose of ‘feeling good’. So when addicts learn to meditate with me, it’s like a light goes on in their head, their eyes sparkle and their energy shifts.
Yes! They just had the serotonin and oxytocin hit! BOOM!

Overcoming Addiction

In my first week of meditating it was like everything I’d been looking for in my life I was finding right here in the stillness. It was like I’d finally found home. What was I connecting with in the stillness that made me feel this way? I was re-connecting to me…the deep core of my very Being. Here, beyond my body and mind, I connected with something so vast and blissful. It was calm, it was loving, it was gentle, and the amazing thing was, it was in me.

My yearning for those ‘other’ highs started to fade as they became replaced by something much more charming and sustainable. What did that look and feel like? A deep inner calm and bliss. Sure, it wasn’t instant and permanent, more like a gradual fading in of calm and bliss, and fading out of addictions and need.

If you are able to acknowledge that yes, there are addictions in your life, then that’s ok, you’re doing just what all of us are doing, you’re looking for fulfilment. You’re looking to re-connect to YOU.

There, beyond your mind and body, beyond the layers of the ego, lies something so vast, deep and full of love. Meditation just so happens to be one of those portals that will take you there.

Are you ready to take the leap? Then dive deep into my powerful meditation program called Faster Deeper Bliss. This program has been changing people’s lives all over the world. People like who said:

“I want to pass on my profound gratitude. While positive things have been happening, today’s meditation was just amazing. I was only a few minutes into my meditation when an immense level of gratitude welled up in me. Tears rolled down my cheeks with overwhelming peace and excitement for these epiphanies. I am enormously grateful.” Julie B

Getting My Car Stolen Taught Me An Unexpected Lesson!

turtle

Life’s Lessons Come In The Strangest Places

Two weeks ago I woke up to find my 2 month old car no longer in my driveway. Now I know my memory is a bit soft at times but I distinctly recalled parking it there the night before. There was only one reason it wasn’t there, it was stolen. (The fact that my smashed window was there in the driveway gave it away too)

Needless to say it turned up 2 days later on the other side of Sydney. Apparently other than the smashed driver side window, it was in good nick and the insurance company told me it would be sent to my repairer within 5 days to get fixed.

3 weeks have passed, the clock is still ticking and still no release of the car from the insurance company to my repairer. Now I’m generally a pretty patient guy, (20 years of meditating daily will do this) but every now and then this gets tested. This situation is one of them.

So as I felt myself huffing and puffing with the insurance people, trying to find out why these delays were happening, I noticed one thing. My huffing and puffing was having little to no effect on the car getting back into my hands any quicker, but it was having a huge effect on my body and mind.

Patience Or Impatience…Does It Change Your Outcome?

This is the thing with patience and impatience. Whether I am patient or impatient, it has no effect on the speed of the desired outcome. But it does have a HUGE effect on how I feel, and how I feel has a HUGE effect on the things that I attract. What I notice when I’m impatient, and feeling that tension in my body, is I set in motion a series of events that start attracting situations that exacerbate that feeling. I seem to get every red light in traffic, car parks stop turning up for me, waiters forget my order and everything takes SOOOO long!

However when I’m patient and in the flow of life, amazing things happen all the time. My lesson here was to let go of control. Control doesn’t affect the speed of outcomes. The timeline for outcomes will be determined whether I’m patient or impatient. I can’t control the timeline of the outcomes but I can control my feelings. This is one area of life that I do have some power over. Do I want to feel tension in my body or do I want to feel calm? I know tension and happiness can’t co-exist. Impatience and love can’t co-exist. Love and happiness is my essence, and control and impatience moves me further away from who I am.

So with this, the lesson is simple: breath, let go, and let things unfold in whatever timeline they unfold in.

PS. Astonishingly as I write this, I am called by the repairer and the car has arrived….<seriously!>

6 Tips To Get You Through A Challenging Experience 

6 tips
Sometimes things just don’t go according to plan right? That’s how it was this week for me. You know those times when you think you have the script clearly written out and for some reason the other actors in your movie don’t seem to be following the script? What’s going on?? Why don’t you follow my script??

Life will throw some challenges at you.

Each challenge is the space where you get to either contract or grow. That is we either choose to be a victim or we choose to be empowered. If you choose to be a victim, it will be a long drawn out experience that could last days, weeks or even years! It will be filled with lots of friction, poor health and deteriorated relationships. If you see it as an opportunity to grow, you will pass through it quickly and come through the other side lighter and happier.

If you choose to be empowered, you will discover the challenge is an opportunity, one that is rich in knowledge. Coming to this realisation is the biggest hurdle. Once you overcome that big obstacle, and look for the nuggets of gold in the experience, you’ll go from seeker to finder. Getting through those times requires embracing a few steps or strategies. I’ve put together 6 things that I do when life isn’t quite unfolding how I expected it to. If things are tough at the moment, try these out, you’ll find it will flow more with less friction.
Here they are:

1. Pause. This sounds simple but pushing, fighting and struggling harder isn’t the way through. Pause. Sit and take a moment to just be. Instead of chasing life, allow some space so that life will FLOW towards you. When I am forcing things, I always remind myself, create a space and let it flow towards me.

2. Work Out. Yep, channeling any frustration, excess energy like anger, agitation, or fear into a seriously good sweat and work out is a huge release. This exertion will do wonders for clearing pent up energy. Not only that it transforms dark energy into something more positive and lighter.

3. Seek guidance. Somewhere in your life, there will be people that will be able to see things from a different perspective than you. When we are deep in the turmoil of our own situation, often it is hard to see the wood through the trees. There’s a saying, ‘when the student is ready, the teacher will come’. Be open to receiving guidance from someone who might offer some support and a different perspective. Is it your Mum, your Dad, your best friend, a coach or counsellor or a meditation teacher? You will find someone when you are ready for assistance.

4. Read. I have a huge library of books that I have drawn upon over many years to support me on my path. The words in these books hold wisdom and guidance that has been invaluable to me. People like Dan Millman, Eckart Tolle, Deepak Chopra, Emmanuel, Marianne Williamson and Neale Donald Walsch (among many others) have all played a big part in helping me through difficult times. Here is my blog where I recommend 10 books.

5. Meditate. One sanctuary I always come back to is stillness. Amid all the fluctuations and challenges of life I have always found one constant…STILLNESS. The gateway to stillness is meditation. Meditation is my foundation that I build my life on. It’s in meditation that I am able to cut through those ups and downs of life and experience a freedom in the stillness. There is a sanskrit word nivartatvum, which means ‘transcend where you are’. Go to the stillness and find peace there.

6. Be Mindful. Mindfulness is looking deep into your thinking process. Ask yourself questions, look at the way your mind works, are those thoughts serving you? What is the nature of your thoughts? Mindfulness involves deep introspection into the nature of your thoughts and actions. Often we run on autopilot not even aware that we are thinking or acting in a certain way. Being mindful requires you to observe YOU, observe the things you do and the way you think, assessing if that is still serving your best interests.

Life will throw some curly ones at you. No doubt about it. But you can pass through these times and come out the other side elevated, wiser and lighter. These steps will help you. You may have  some other suggestions which we’d love to hear. So feel free to share them with us below.

In the meantime why you try my 10 minute guided meditation here called the Gentle Breath Meditation. All you have to do is click the button below. Happy meditating!

Why I’m Ok With Eating Non-Organic Food And How You Can Perform Alchemy

vegetables and fresh fruitsHow would you like to perform alchemy? Yes you can be an alchemist, and you’re about to find out how.

When you discover your own alchemist capabilities you’ll be able to heal yourself, protect yourself from other people’s negative energy and live passionately and dynamically everyday! Check this out…

During an interview this week for an organic blog site, I was asked how do I live a Certified Organic lifestyle. Umm, “I don’t”, I replied. In fact I’m not sure that’s even possible in today’s world. I’m sitting here in the Qantas lounge, about to leave my Bondi Bubble and fly to Fiji for a long overdue family holiday. In my Bondi Bubble I have access to a plethora of organic juice shops, organic veggie shops, organic restaurants and organic growers markets. Yep, wherever I can I will take the option of organic over non-organic any day. However, now as I embark on a trip to a relaxing resort in Fiji, I know that’s not going to be available to me. Oh no, the foods not organic in the resort! Do I stress? Do I panic? Do I worry?

Not in the slightest.

This is where the alchemy comes in. At a quantum level food is energy, just like me. And energy is vibration. Vibration is a frequency. My intention is to align the foods vibration with my body’s highest frequency. This is called entrainment. The dictionary says of entrainment:

“To adjust (an internal rhythm of an organism) so that it synchronizes with an external”

How does the work? I get to choose, do I align my body’s energy with the food I eat or does the food I put into my body align with MY energy? The intention here is to hold the highest vibration possible at all times and alchemise the food to synchronise with my frequency. Love is a frequency of 528Hz. Above the love vibration are frequencies like joy, ecstasy and bliss. Low grade vibrations are anger, fear, shame, sadness. This premise was shown clearly by Masura Emoto’s water crystal experiments, where the crystal shape would actually change depending on the music that was played to it, the words that were said, or if a prayer was offered over it. As seen here:

 

Screen Shot 2015-07-05 at 9.57.21 am Screen Shot 2015-07-05 at 9.56.41 am Screen Shot 2015-07-05 at 9.56.28 am Screen Shot 2015-07-05 at 9.55.46 am Screen Shot 2015-07-05 at 9.55.28 am

Often fanatically healthy people will stress over not being able to find their organic gluten free, dairy-free, sugar-free, yeast-free, grass-fed, wild-caught, fermented wotsitcalled food, not realising the stress of not being able to eat it is doing more damage in their body than the actual food itself.

Now I must say here, I’m not advocating going out and eating deep fried, insecticide and pesticide filled, hormone injected, maltedextron and corn syrup ladened fast food. Not at all. Like attracts like and more often we are drawn to these low vibration foods because it’s will be in alignment with our own inner low grade vibration.

On the flip side, when we feel inner joy, bliss, love and gratitude, we are drawn to foods that are aligned with that vibration also. So my priority here is to hold a highgrade vibration in my body and choose foods, where possible, that are already in sync with that.

How do you hold that highgrade vibration of love, bliss and joy, especially when there is a lot of negativity around you? Here are 5 things to do to keep you in that space:

  1. Spend time in nature. It’s said the energy of a rainforest is up around 1000Hz! But even being in parks, by the ocean, or surrounded by trees will help. Spend time each day in nature.
  1. Read positive uplifting books, and avoid negative things like the news, horror books and films. Everything you watch and read has an energy to it. As you read or watch it, there is an alignment occurring. This is why people watch horror films, to feel the fear that the film invokes. When you read and watch positive uplifting content it will help your vibration remain at that higher level. To find out some books that I recommend go to my blog of my top 10 books here.
  1. Listen to peaceful harmonious music. If you look above at the crystals you will see how much the heavy metal music influenced the shape of the crystal. An angry person will create angry music and a peaceful person will create peaceful music. The vibration of the composer will transfer into the music and then into you. Be aware and selective about the music that you are aligning with. 
  1. Surround yourself with positive people. There is a reason I host regular large group meditation sessions called Stillness In The City. The collective energy of a room of 70 people meditating together is phenomenal. A study was done in Washington DC where they brought 2000 meditators into the city and measured the criminal activity during this time. The study recorded a 25% drop in crime and police activity during the exercise and a rise back again of 25% once the exercise was over. Entrainment. This can be found also in yoga classes, conscious parties and events, or simply being selective about who you are spending time with.
  1. Daily meditation. By meditating daily I reset my frequency to a blissful loving nature. Each time I quiet my mind and place my body into deep rest, I re-align to my inner essence of love and throw off the stresses of fear, sadness, anger and any other low grade vibrations. Many a time I have had students learn to meditate with me and they start crying or feel agitated during their meditation session. Without correct guidance they wouldn’t know why this is happening. This is where the teachers role is crucial when it comes to learning to meditate. This phenomenon is a result of the body’s vibration being raised and the lower frequencies being expelled from the body. This is a healing, purging process that eliminates unwanted emotional toxins.

There you have it. 5 tips that to use to keep your energy level up in the frequency of joy, love and bliss. So when I line up this week at the buffet in the Sofitel on the shores of Fiji, will I be stressed about whether it’s organic or not? No, this is a celebration, a time to be joyous, and I’ll be very aware that I remain in a gentle, loving state and the food will be a fun joyful experience. It will alchemise, so it’s all good. Hmm, I wonder what they have in the desserts section!

Why Did This Student Feel Rage After Meditating?

When we think of meditation we think of calm, peace, and happiness. So why was it that this week I received an email from a student who felt a ‘rage’ after their meditation and wanted to punch their computer?!

How can something so relaxing make someone feel so angry?

How can the practice of sitting in a comfortable chair, closing your eyes, and quietening the mind with the repetition of a sound create a feeling in someones body that they wanted to punch a computer??

Well there is a very good explanation for this and it’s not only testament to the power of meditation, but also the key to you feeling light, happy, and calm.
