The Grand Design For Success & Holistic Wellness
by Lamar Irwin
Holistic wellness leads to an empowered life and a real sense of well-being inside and out. It occurs when the matrix that makes up a person’s life causes he or she to feel fulfilled by living a desired life. A person subjectively measures well-being in many aspects – career, friends, partner/spouse, money, love, play, emotional/mental, spiritual and other aspects that are important.
There are those that recognize room for improvement and are ready to make some adjustments to increase a sense of well-being. The greatest wellness develops by deliberately choosing one’s desired results in life while deepening the understanding of working with life. People are designed with all the inner skills necessary to maintain, establish and increase holistic wellness. With the right knowledge these inner unseen skills are utilized to change life externally and internally.
Permanent change for the better in a person’s life begins from within. The grand design for people is that everyone is born with skills to make the life they desire. It is simply a matter of the right education. The good news is it works for every person.
“Life is a self-fulfilling prophecy.”
by 20th-century sociologist Robert K. Merton
Meditation is the most well known tool for making life changes, and is continuously being confirmed by new scientific technologies. Meditation is when a person is focusing thought, and heart, on a single thought, or feeling. Sometimes it is staring at a single point or flame. For the advanced meditator it is to be without thought. A meditative state focuses one’s whole being in a single direction. This is what causes deliberate life changes.
A meditative state occurs when the brain’s operating frequency range is about 7 to 14 hertz (cycles per second). In daily life, people’s brains are operating above 14 hertz. This is when eyes are open and the physical senses are engaged. Every person has a built-in switch to change the brain from outer reality activity mode to inner reality creative mode.
The switch involves mental focus, intent and controlled breathing. To go within begins with an intent to disconnect from the stimuli of the physical world. Relax and do some deep breathing focusing on the air movement and how it feels. Deep breathing is enough to get the process started. In a short while the brain frequency adjusts to the right frequency range, and one feels relaxed. From this point there are a multitude of activities that will benefit in different ways.
Once a person is at this level of peace and relaxation the intelligence expands to include the intuitive and creative mind. At this point there are a multitude of options.
Some of the known uses of being in a meditative state
Find and Establish Peace Within = Most people are introduced to meditation where the goal is to relax and clear the mind. This is new to people living a busy life in a busy world.
Dynamic Meditation = Cause deliberate changes in life. Visualization is a much validated and scientifically measured skill that directly alters our being. Proper visualization techniques are known to alter the neural programming in the brain and heart real time. Brain difficulties have been overcome using these techniques. There are other trained uses of the imagination that will cause change at different levels in a person’s life.
Oneness Meditation = Allow the release of attachment to what the eyes see as separation between people, things and other so the person establishes a strong sense of connectedness to all things.
Visioning = Ask questions of a higher knowing, universal love or other name. Receive direct answers in some form. Establish a strong sense of love within one self fully connected to the Universal Love
Sports Performance and Task Improvement = Some studies show that when a person effectively imagine their sports performance beforehand, it can significantly improve his or her performance. This has been also applied to desktop or other work tasks to improve the quality and performance.
Open One’s Heart Center and Fill Up with Healing Unconditional Love = To those who have had their hearts awakened they know this energy can be drawn in, received, magnified and sent. This is a good heart healing process. The more a person opens their heart, the more their heart will heal and stay open for more love.
[Author: I would have included the following had there been more space for the article]
Change stress level = Integrate a simple countdown method, based on brain science, into your life that instantly relaxes your mind and body, on cue. This is also the key to health and health.
Eliminate headache/pain through Precise Thinking = Every person who uses this gets off pain medications and one man had a spinal implant; he turned it off after the first session. Precise Thinking is incredibly powerful.
Access Logical & Intuitive/Creative thoughts to Build a Magnificent Project = The brain’s logical thoughts are accessed always when the eyes are open and we are engaged in our physical life. With intent and breathing with eyes closed the mind can be shifted to access intuitive/creative thoughts. Best practice: When you are creating a project: First, write down all that is in your mind with your eyes open. These are the logical thoughts based on what has been learned, experienced and absorbed in this life. When you want a new idea, think of the question that will bring you the answer. Close your eyes, breathe deeply several times and imagine walking down some stairs to go within yourself. Then pose the question in your quieter mind. Pause and listen for new thoughts, ideas, colors, images, smells, sounds. It will come to you however it can reach your awareness.
Develop Your Mind to Focus Thoughts, Logical & Intuitive, for Evolving Personal Benefits = When a person uses this precise process to relax the mind and body there is a wealth of inner skills that begin to unfold in a person’s consciousness. There is a predictable progression for the inspired person who practices it regularly. It begins with the ability to de-stress and relax mind and body on cue making this process shorter and more usable. Intuitive, creative and new thoughts begin to bubble in then they flow more so. Much more…
Basis for Being a Medical Intuitive & Sending Focused Corrective Energies = With a mind that is being mastered and directed by its owner it can be trained to enter different assigned dimensions for a particular purpose. One is the ability to remotely scan an imaginary image of a person – given name, age, gender, location – and detect what is not working correctly and where it is. This is precise and everyone experiences this.
The mind is an incredible place. Mastery is a lifelong pursuit with Life Mastery as a great side effect.
Choose a practice ~ Learn it ~ Practice it ~ And witness life unfolding in much grace and ease.
