"BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM."
Want to experience a little heaven on earth?
You are whole. You are joy. You are perfect with all of your perfect imperfections. You are the light of the world. You just have to become still to remember.
In stillness, you can hear
your heart’s true desires. In stillness, you receive clarity and insights.
Lie down and float in the day dreaming space between being awake and asleep. Just breathe. Just be.
This is Guided Rest!
Surrender to that which you are. Let go of the doing and the labels and the personality small s self. Lie down and expand into your big S Self.
"Be still and know that I AM."
It's easy to come to stillness while lying down. You don't have to fight gravity as in seated meditation. You can completely relax and drop into deeper and deeper states of consciousness. You can tap into a great reservoir of healing -- the Delta brainwave state that you reach in GUIDED REST is the most restorative to the body and to the mind.
Guided Rest is based on Yoga Nidra, Sensory Awareness, and Inherent Movement.
Yoga Nidra is a state of consciousness mentioned in the ancient yogic teachings.
Yoga means union and Nidra means conscious sleep. So, Yoga Nidra is the state of deep “sleep” that allows you to experience union with God, Source, the Divine. Guided Rest is guided meditation done lying down so that the body becomes so relaxed it “sleeps” but your mind, your subconscious mind is still listening.
The thing about Yoga Nidra is that it is simple. Just lie down and listen. You become more and more relaxed as you follow my guidance. Effortlessly, you enter a day dreamy state, and in this state all kinds of wonderful things happen.
Your body restores and heals itself.
Your nervous systems and brain hemispheres balance.
The relaxation response kicks in--blood pressure goes down, heart rate goes down, cortisone (the stress and aging hormone) levels go down.
Old thought patterns and beliefs are replaced with ones that nourish your soul.
You find yourself pausing and responding to situations instead of reacting to them.
Creative ideas bubble up.
Solutions to problems bubble up.
You expand to experience on a cellular level your Oneness.
Research has shown that daily practice of Yoga Nidra can help with
and the list goes on...
Think of it like this--you have a well spring of health and creativity and energy but this spring is covered with to-do lists and laundry and shopping and reports and worry and negative thoughts.
Lie down. Let Guided Rest melt away the things that cover your well spring. Once the debris is removed, then the spring water can rise to the surface. Your natural ability to heal rises to the surface. Your natural creativity rises to the surface. Your ability to solve problems rises to the surface. You see the world and yourself with fresh eyes.
Did you know that brilliant minds like Einstein, Beethoven, Aristotle, and Salvador Dali used a similar technique to solve problems and to create masterpieces?
No need to play small anymore.
Awaken your power. Awaken your creative juices. Awaken your well rested joyful self!
