Using Native American Flute Music For Meditation I want to tell you about a fabulous place to visit if you like meditation music. I first saw this amazing man, Scott August on a youtube
He plays Native American Flute music. This is one of the most relaxing sounds I have ever heard especially for meditation. I found his website at Please take the time to visit his will be glad you did. There is a plethora of information & you can click to sample the music from each of his cd's. I would also like to mention my participation in a 28 day meditation over at AWAKE IS GOOD with my blogger buddy Jan Lundy. She is sharing a vast amount of advice to anyone who wants to read or join in...

Do we blog for ourselves or others? I think mostly for ourselves...You may ask, "Is it a form of meditation?" I say, NO...blogging creates waves of creativeness, random thoughts, quick aspirations for the day ahead or past. Minds full of egos overflowing onto the page. I find it best to meditate "hours" before or after I blog...allowing my mind to rest, to settle down, to deflate back to it's natural state so as not to keep the thoughts looping around inside.

If you have ever had trouble with a busy mind, thought looping or anything else that keeps you distracted & from settling down at night (probably everyone on the planet) then you can benefit from daily meditation. You don't have to have an instructor or class to go to. You don't even have to know what to do. Just go to a quiet place and concentrate on nothing...try to clear your head even if it is for a couple of minutes. Don't think about what happened today, yesterday or what will happen tomorrow. Give your mind a break! If you have trouble with this, try concentrating on your, out, in, out. FOCUS on a word or object to center yourself. I personally use a quartz helps me center my energy...I imagine that energy as a bright light that flows through my body & hands into the crystal & back into my body again. Try'll enjoy the benefits.

I usually meditate at night before going to bed so I decided to change it up & try to meditate upon waking up this, after I woke up early at 4:30 am, from a bad dream...I attempted to clear my mind, concentrate on my breathing anything that would calm my mind & put me back to sleep. Nothing was working...I tried & tried and nothing worked. I could not center my was jumping all around inside my head...I couldn't lock onto it.Sometimes that happens...but at least I tried. I got up early and went about my day...I even finished a painting I had been working on for a couple of weeks. Even though I was tired and sleepy all day, I still managed to accomplish a goal. Hopefully, I will be so tired tonight, I will sleep soundly and wake up at the normal time. Then I can try to meditate in the morning before I get up.
To answer the question: "Can you flunk meditation"? The answer is "NO"!!! There is no right or wrong way, just your way. As long as you are taking some alone time for your inner self is all that is required.

Hello and welcome to the year 2010...I am embarking on a journey of self discovery, of a freedom few will know. This journey will not take me long distances and hours of travel time. It will not be filled with the stress of planning and budgeting. It will merely be a journey inside of myself, to the far realms of my mind where only I can go. I will seek out what's inside my heart & mind & soul. My goal is to reach this place & bring back it's energy in the form of self enlightenment. So that when someone looks at me, they will say..."tell me your secret".
To begin, I have joined forces with Jan Lundy over at her blog AWAKE IS GOOD. She has started a 28 day meditation challenge.

I have gradually gotten away from meditating every day and I can definitely tell the difference in my day to day self. I am much more sluggish & some days lack the drive to get through the day without feeling drained. So, I starting my daily sessions on Dec 31st to get a head start on 2010. Her sessions started today and I am so looking forward to this journey. Please feel free to join us in this attempt to renew our life energies.

The blue moon last night is supposed to energize us to a good start to a new year. I went outside right after midnight to capture the energy of this event and was not disappointed. With the glow of the moon and the crisp cold was tantalizing. I am going to try to keep that energy going as long as possible by meditating every day and anything else that may be creative in my mind. I have been painting for the last couple of hours...this is something I will try to do at least a little of every day. Not only does practice make perfect but the more you do something the more you want to do it. BUT, not too much so as to get burned out. Know your happy medium to keep you in a happy place :-)HAVE A HAPPY NEW YEAR!
