#omaratarot This week I’ve been thinking about time. We all have a limited resource of time during our current existence, we really need to spend more of it scrolling through social media. BAM! if you’ve read this far I’m not having a go, I’m as bad as anyone, my phone reports to me every week what a waster I am.
Many people who have readings are focusing on the ants, not the elephants. Quite often someone sits in front of me & blithers on about some guy they are obsessed with. I nod sagely & make a few comments here & there, there’s no point in saying “Why bother you won’t be together in 3 months” They won’t want to hear it, sometimes they can’t hear it.
We all have a limited amount of time. I saw the Bohemian Rhapsody movie recently, I enjoyed it even though I think it had little to do with the truth.
I met Freddie a couple of times on nights out. His time was cut short, as was many of my friends time around that period in history. The technology is now here to stop that happening. What might Freddie have done had he not been taken so young?
You think you have time, you don’t. What is your purpose? What do you really want to get done before your personal countdown expires. You know deep inside, you really do. You will put it off until ‘it is the right time’, ‘its christmas’, ‘works crazy’, ‘I have no time’ Make some time, get up an hour earlier, stop watching trash tv.
That time is now. Do me a favour, stop scrolling, take a deep breath & treat yourself to five minutes of thinking about what you really want to do
I like to give credit where credit’s due, I’m not 100% sure where the quote I used came from. A lot of sources say ‘Buddha’ but I’m not totally sure, if you are then please let me know.
This meditation video is one of my inner journeys, cliche I know, though the monk is one of the personas from an old hypnosis I used to listen to endlessly, he’s stuck around.
I’ve always been fascinated with meditation, diving in to the pools of my subconscious, leaving the trials of reality behind, so repetitive, so exhausting. Meditation allows us to leave the noise, the myriad distractions, slip away in to the silence.
You don’t need to be a blissed out yogi or a buddhist monk to find inner peace. You’ve probably experienced nirvana yourself, on a sun lounger listening to a favourite playlist.
When I properly started meditating this is how I saw myself. I’m a proper Aries, if I’m doing something I’m going full on deep dive. An Indian friend of mine said he felt like he was at his aunties flat. It was incense, Buddhas & Ganesh every where.
I was really lucky to sit with monks in Sri Lanka. They were great, you don’t have to be diol to be spiritual. I joined several meditation groups & classes, always chasing the ‘perfect’ mantra, instant karma.
Slowly I realised that my idea of meditation was quite limiting. I made friends with hypnotherapists who took me deeper on journeys to the edge of my subconscious.
Shamanic journeying was next, one of my faves, I often dive through the vortex, see which spirit animals or teachers are waiting to escort me through the underworld.
Buddha regularly appears to people in a dream which often leads to an interest in chanting. That is why I have used the OM symbol as a focus.
You can use any symbol as a focus in your mind, focus on the breathing, allow any sounds to send you deeper in to a fantastic daydream.
Seeing Buddha in your dream, symbolises : wisdom, insight, compassion, and inner spirituality. When your mind is whirring, at your desk, on the tube, wherever the myriad distractions of daily life become a distraction, try repeating NAMYOHORENGEKYO or OMMANIPADMEHUM or both! In your mind, you might be amazed at the results.
Go forth & be extraordinary today
