Meditative Mandala Rock Art


My new obsession! Learning to draw and paint mandalas on rocks. I’ve always been a collector of rocks whenever I go anywhere near the water. Something about how they look and feel. I just find they look so pretty and bring such an earthy vibe to my home. I like interesting shapes, colours and imperfections.

Like people really. Aren’t we just like the rock, travelling through the waters of life, landing somewhere to take up space on land until the tides move us elsewhere. Tumbling and bumbling through the rough waters coming to rest on the floor of calm waters. Being worn down by the constant force of the water rolling over us, taking the edges off and taking new shape as life moves us forward.

Try this experiment! Only a few minutes will change your life.


A little while ago I posted a couple of meditation and Reiki quizzes, where you rank your stress and happiness levels before and after meditation or a self-healing Reiki session. So cool!

The results are so neat and clear. Meditation and Reiki, even just five minutes, can completely change your state. Your stress levels drop and happiness levels go up. What is so cool is that the results are statistically significant and consistent. That is nerd speak for, this is the real deal!

In the Reiki and Meditation Science Experiment, I have people rank their stress in 30 categories of stressors, everything from losing a spouse to getting a big zit. In the experiment, you rank your stress before and after either a 5 minute meditation or a 5 minute self-healing Reiki session.

Meditation Decreases Stress

Five minutes of meditation creates a 56% drop in stress levels.

 

Reiki Decreases Stress

 

Five minutes of a guided self-healing creates a 61% drop in stress.

 

As you can imagine, when you drop stress, happiness also increases.

I created another quiz where you rank your happiness levels by using the Reiki Ideals. The Reiki Ideals are: do not anger; do not worry; be grateful; do meditation and self-care; and be kind. After a 15 minute meditation, happiness levels increased.

Reiki Ideals Meditation Increases Happiness title

Fifteen minute meditation increases happiness by 25%

What is so cool about all of this is that you don’t need to have a good meditation to get these results. Often when we drag ourselves to our practice, we get huge benefits. Even though these monkey-mind, chattering thoughts, restless meditations feel like we are terrible at meditating, we often see the biggest drop in stress when we have them.

So basically, don’t worry about doing meditation well, or the correct way. You just need to do it. Just show up and the results just happen.

What I have found is that not only do stress levels drop after a few minutes of meditating or doing Reiki, the effects are long lasting and cumulative. The more you meditate, the lower your stress levels.

I am a firm believer in frequency. The more often you meditate or do Reiki and self-healing, the bigger the benefit. It all adds up. In the long run, you become happier and more resilient to stresses.

And you only need a few minutes a day to create these changes. No need to spend hours coiled in a preztel! Just sit comfortably and breathe slowly for 5 minutes with your eyes closed and you will absolutely transform your life.

Releasing Anger Meditation


Whew! Anger! It can be a tricky emotion to handle. Meditation often helps to soothe the fire of anger, but getting there when you are overwhelmed can be really difficult.

This guided meditation is specifically for times when you are angry or feeling resistance. It acknowledges and releases your feelings while helping you understand the deeper wisdom that is under the stormy surface. Using your breath is a fantastic tool for moving through anger and this meditation guides you to do just that!

Test the meditation out by rating your anger level from zero to ten, ten being the most, before and after the meditation. You may still be angry after the meditation, and that is perfectly okay, but you will likely see a decrease in the intensity of your emotions. That drop in intensity, no matter how slight, gives you a change to understand the true cause of your anger and allow you the space to determine the best next step. Anger tends to cause us to act impulsively. Taking a few moments of meditation will give you the space to make better choices even in the midst of anger.

Try it out and let me know how it works for you!!

Past Life Wisdom Meditation


This meditation is designed to access your past life wisdom. I created it after doing several past-life regressions where I only encountered the trauma and poor decisions that I had done in those lives. I thought, “If I have had all of these lives, then surely I must have wisdom in these lives that could actually help me!”.

It is true. We can have access to this wisdom now. This meditation directs you to write out your responses. You can pause the recording if you need more time to write down your impressions. The meditation is about 20 minutes long.

Let me know how it goes for you!

Activating Divine Will Meditation


Each Master Level class in Reiki I have my students create their own meditations and activities to learn the process of teaching. Really, the only way to teach is just to jump in and do it! We each take two chakras to create our lessons and I also get a chance to create some new material as well. It adds a fresh new perspective to the material we have spent a year studying together.

Reiki and Meditation Science Experiment!


So, true confession time… I love statistics. I mean I really love them. I love data and analyses and spreadsheets. Yup.

I love it all so much that I created my own stress index, the Robins Holistic Stress Scale, and I have been collecting data in bits and pieces over the last few years on the effect of Reiki and meditation on self-reported stress scores. Oh yeah! How cool am I right now!!! 😀

I am also so supremely happy that I have figured out a way of hosting this experiment on a broader scale here on my website. My plan is to take the aggregated data and determine if there is a difference between the effects of meditation and Reiki. I am so cool right now I can’t even stand it!

All the information you need is below. Just follow the instructions and you will get to test out what works best for YOU, five minutes of meditation, or five minutes of self-healing. The whole thing will probably only take 15 to 20 minutes and you can retake the quiz as often as you would like!

If you have any issues viewing the quiz, try clicking here.

Enjoy! Let me know how it worked for you. I would love to hear from you!

Finding harmony: Snuggling up to the reverb


There is a sound  the Universe makes. It is a deep hum.

Listen now.

Listen until you hear the listening.

Only then will you hear it.

When you hear it, it is unmistakable.

It’s voice vibrates your atoms.

It blurs the edges of the concept of ‘you’. Me. I.

In the stillness, allow the waves to roll on through, carrying all your wishes to everywhere all at once.

In this space, this sound, all things are possible.
