I read an article this week that prompted some of my own life reflections and further research. Briefly:
“One in 3 Australians over 70 take 5 or more different medicines a day! This latest research suggests Australians elderly are taking more drugs, more often than their counterparts in the US and UK. And of further concern quite often they don’t know what they are taking the medicine for. Experts aren’t sure why. Nor are they sure why the trend is increasing:. YIKES!.
Recently I heard that Google search rates for anxiety have more than doubled over the past 8 years! Wow! I found this quite interesting when we are in a world where more and more people are waking up. What a dichotomy. It seems the gap is getting wider with those who have had profound spiritual experiences find them selves isolated though they may be the majority?
Frankly, I don’t know where my life would be today without meditation. Probably not here! In our mind driven,
It speaks for itself that health issues, aches and pains are always an indication that something in our body is out of balance and needs our attention. Our physical body does not operate in isolation. It is a reflection of our emotional, mental and spiritual bodies which all interpenetrate. If your physical body is suffering, rest assure there is something that also needs your attention from the subtle bodies. These physical challenges can also be as a result of the highe
Do you feel as though overwhelm seems to be the new “norm” – that disruption is constant? Are you feeling as though everything is going so fast and it’s hard to keep abreast? You are not alone! Even time is speeding up. A Google-search for “time is speeding up” will bring up 37 million web pages! So feel validated in your perception. The reality is, that it is unlikely to slow down! Some have called this the Shift, or the Ascension that is occurring. We are evolving into a ne
The most prevalent and perhaps unrecognized addiction is “thinking”. The mind rarely giving us a moment of peace, particularly when we want to sort something out, get organized, keep track of things or solve a problem. The mind can certainly be a great ally. However, when we try to meditate the mind can be a major disruptor to our good intentions of stillness and going within. Understanding why the mind tries to be so disruptive may help you to go deeper in your meditation p
There are a variety of different reasons that you may have started a meditation practice, though the “ultimate” goal is to connect with Real Self or become self-realised – to experience an awakening of your core loving essence, of pure consciousness and pure awareness.
This inner world cannot be forced or bought. It will not respond to ultimatums by an impatient ego. As the great spiritual master Rumi said: “With love you can make a way for yourself inside yourself”

Developing a regular meditation practice affords enormous personal benefits which I ‘m sure you know by now. It is a life changing, life sustaining, transformational practice.

Let’s face it, relationships affect us all – families, friends, work colleagues, communities …. we can’t really escape them. They provide the triggers that reveal where we have “inner” work to do. I like to refer to these people who push our buttons as angels in disguise. We actually need them for our growth. Likely you’ve heard it many times before! Yes, there is a wealth of research affirming the significant and broad benefits of meditation on health and wellbeing, eve
I was recently reading some research about meditation and how it makes neurological changes in the brain. The longer you meditate both in daily length and over number of years, the more you actually change the neural circuits in the brain. If you have kept up your meditation practice you will likely be noticing this already. These otherwise tend to deteriorate with age. In these times of such significant change and often turmoil, having tools like meditation help us maint
