How to become a high tech, neural programmer.

I’ve just returned from spending a week at the Omega Institute in beautiful Rhinebeck, NY, where I had a chance to experience the peace and deep healing that comes with lots of meditation.

Getting internal.

Quieting a noisy mind on demand.

Finding an inner home base.

Calming the nervous system.

Generating powerful, healing energy for the body.

Feeling rested, peaceful, and clear.

These are just some of the many benefits of meditation and I only wish I had started a consistent practice sooner.

The process is simple. Here are the steps I shared earlier this year in another blog…

Turn off the ringer on your phones and eliminate any interruptions.

Find someplace comfortable to sit upright (preferably with your back supported).

Set a gentle-sounding alarm to go off in ten minutes.

Choose a word you’d like to focus on and keep using this same word each time you meditate. I use the word “peace” because that’s the state I’m interested in cultivating. Pick a word that feels right to you.

Close your eyes and imagine turning your energy and attention inward.

Breathe, relax, and keep bringing your attention back to the present moment by focusing on your word. You might repeat it to yourself, see it before you, or imagine writing it in the air.

Keep doing this until the alarm goes off.

That’s it. The object of the game is to return to your word each time you get distracted and to stay put until the alarm sounds.

Now that I’ve been using this practice for a while, I feel like a high tech neural programmer who’s built a ‘personal peace app’ that can be accessed any time, any place.

How cool is that?

You can become a programmer, too. Imagine being able to use your app…

Before a stressful conversation

While sitting at the airport

When waiting for an appointment

As you prepare to fall asleep

The applications are endless!

Inspired? I hope so!

Now it’s your turn.

Keep it simple.

Ten minutes a day.

One day at a time.

It’s time to start programming now .
