5th April, 2020, Global Meditation update. I acknowledge those who are meditating, and I feel the group is growing. If you have any constructive suggestions, please send me a message on the Contact Page. Meditating together is a powerful contribution in making the positive changes we would like on our planet, and this meditation can be an adjunct to whatever other meditation you practice and other times. I am meditating much more, and it feels just great! Thank you.
Dear Fellow Human Being, I propose a Unified approach to help heal and resolve, what has beset our Human Society, on Planet Earth at this time, during the year 2020 and beyond. Such a unified approach requires at least 1% of the planet’s population to participate. Yes, although such an endeavour is highly possible, even if you feel it to be improbable, but, then, we as individual’s who make up our Human Society, will either wake up and get involved, or we will not. Fortunately, only 1% of the planet’s population is required to do what the 99% cannot or will not do. I have on good account that 1% seems to be the magic number to help create, what is known as ‘Critical Mass.’ This means that just 1% of the population, numbering about 70.3 million people out of a world population of about 7.3 billion, become involved and participate in a regular global meditation practice, the intention of which is to heal what ails our Human Society, Establish Balance, expand Conscious Awareness, Raise Consciousness, and to bring into effect Positive Change within each one of us, our respective countries, and our planet as a whole. With sufficient people participating in this endeavour, the energy and consciousness thus generated will cause a wave of positive change to sweep all over our planet, in a natural, easy, Divine and Perfect Way.
I invite you, one and all, to get involved, and participate in a regular global meditation practice, that will build up its impact, as we meditate, on a consistent and regular basis. This is what I propose;
The Meditation Programme has begun, please join us. Choose a Meditation time from the schedule below. To be done each day at the same time;
This means that we will be able to meditate, at least once a day in a unified manner daily. The second daily meditation will be at 14:00 hours (pm) GMT. Please do your best to work out the correct time from the schedule above. Also, please let me know if I have erred in the above times relative to GMT. I ask you to spread the word far and wide, to all your friends and contacts. This is a joint effort, and we are all to be involved. Together we can help make positive changes, just by raising the frequency by our unified global meditation, which carries with it our joint intention of Healing, Peace, Harmony, Well-Being, Love & Compassion for each one of us, and all of humanity, the Animal World, the Plant World, and our Planet Earth.
If you do not know how to meditate, or do not have a particular technique, you will find below, two simple yet effective meditation techniques known as ‘The Void’ or ‘The Empty Bowl,’ and the other is known as ‘So Hum.’ Choose what is more appropriate for you. One is a breathing technique, the other uses a mantra in conjunction with breath. There is much more to meditating correctly, and I am available to answer your questions. These two meditations are for those who do not know how to meditate with a formal technique. The purpose of meditation is not to think, although thoughts are a part of it. The real purpose is to allow your mind and body to experience deep rest and peace, whereby the mind can transcend itself, from whence all the benefits arise. Before you begin any meditation, sit in a comfortable quiet place, if you can, close your eyes, and allow a few moments to facilitate your mind and body to accommodate the intention of meditation. Then have the intention of that which you wish to accomplish. Begin to meditate, and after meditation, allow yourself some minutes for your mind and body to enter into activity, in a gentle manner. If you are in any doubt as to how meditation works and how it does not work, please refer to my e-book, ‘Meditation, Yoga & Breathing,’ which can be found on the Bookstore page of this website. Normally, a formal meditation technique is to be learned from a teacher of such, so as to ensure you are meditating correctly. However, we are all to do our best, and if you are having any meditation difficulties, please contact me, describing the issue in full. You can contact me by using the Contact form on this website.
If you have any constructive comments to make, and if you notice I have erred with the GMT time schedule, please let me know as soon as possible. This Unified action, on a regular basis, is an extremely powerful contribution in helping yourself, humanity and our planet. Please join us. Together, we will help facilitate Positive Change, with Ease & Grace, in a Divine & Perfect way.

There are several variations of this meditation, and I am sure you will find your own comfortable formula.
Sit in a comfortable position, with you back comfortably straight. Lean against a wall, or, if you prefer to sit without any support, you may want to place a cushion under your tailbone area, so that, that part of your body is slightly raised and you can sit in the lotus or half lotus position (folded legs) in a much more comfortable way.
At the point when you pause in your inhalation, there is a gap – no breath – The Void! Put your attention there, and wait until your body begins to exhale (through the nose).
The void is nothingness from which “everythingness” springs forth. This is the field of pure potential, which you can tap and utilize in your life as a powerful tool to raise your consciousness, release limitations, including negative karma. The void or ‘nothing’ contains within it, everything, and conversely, everything contains the potential of nothing. This is because we live in a three dimensional, polarized world of duality. As above – so below!
In this meditation we incorporate the breath and a mantra. The meaning of So-Hum is ‘I Am That,’ explained as follows; ‘So’ means “I am,’ while ‘Hum’ means ‘That.’ When we quietly say mentally (not out loud) ‘So,’ we are inviting the Divine Principle/Life to enter our being, and when we mentally say ‘Hum,’ we invite our limitations to leave us. This meditation is a very effective means to help create balance in our body, mind and spirit, as we harmonize with Cosmic Consciousness.
As in each and every meditation technique, simplicity, effortlessness and naturalness are the way. In the event that a practitioner practices any of these meditation techniques incorrectly, stress is usually the result. Be aware, be mindfull, and observe your mind and body. Listen to what they may be telling you. If you feel that any of these techniques are too difficult for you to master, please do as I recommend, find a teacher. This is why I endorse the learning of TM, because the system of teaching and learning are extremely extensive, thorough and complete. I also welcome enquiries and questions, whereby I may be able to furnish you with helpful answers.

Please be sure that, when you listen to them, you are in a safe place, not operating any machinery or driving a car, and that you are able to be in a quiet place, so that you may close your eyes, and allow yourself to be transported to that inner place where you can experience the Peace, Harmony, Well-Being that can lift your spirit and provide you with the benefits you seek. These Guided Meditations are good tools to help someone relax and to possibly change a redundant learned belief and a redundant learned pattern of behaviour.
