We suggest that everyone should create a space in their homes for daily meditation; a space that provides you with the opportunity to recharge your body both physically and mentally, and keep you balanced. While there is not a specific set of rules that need to be followed when creating a meditation room, there are some things you should take into consideration. Speaking of distractions, there is nothing more distracting than a cluttered area, especially when you are trying to relax.
Nature is organically relaxing and healing, so it only makes sense that you bring some natural elements into the room where you want to relax and meditate. Consider adding touches of nature to your meditation room— it will instantly become infused with harmony and balance.
The meditative music, although quietly played in the background, can help drown out all the other distractions within the home, allowing you to gain a tranquil and peaceful state while meditating—similar to the sound of the water fountain.
When it comes time to choose the music, it is recommended that you choose music without lyrics.
If you are not lucky enough to meditate near the ocean, then consider listening to the sounds of water through meditative background music. From burning candles and incense, to heating oils, you can receive the benefits of aromatherapy while meditating. There has also been evidence to show it boosts the immune system, relieves muscle pain, and reduces or eliminates stress. From burning candles and incense, to heating oils, you can receive the benefits of aromatherapy while meditating.
When creating your mediation room, you definitely want to include some of your own personal touches. Think of items, such as bells, chimes, crystals, a statue of Buddha, affirmation stones, beads, and artwork.
When creating your mediation room, you definitely want to include some of your own personal touches—things that calm you and make you happy.
Aside from the aromatherapy smells you have in the room, you also want to make sure you have fresh air.
If you are in a room that does not have any windows or ceiling fans, consider bringing in a standing fan that also functions as an air purifier.
Aside from the physical elements and sensory objects, you also want to take into consideration the color of the room. Some may say that pastel shades are a much better option as opposed to bright or dark shades—thinking that pastels are more soothing and more relaxing. Regardless of the color you choose, room color affects your mood, so decide on one that calls to your meditative needs, and makes you feel calm and relaxed. As was mentioned earlier, best-case scenario is that you find a room that has lots of natural light.
If the room you choose lacks natural light, you really want to focus on the light fixtures you choose.
If you have chosen an outdoor space, make sure the area is not too bright from sunlight during the time you wish to mediate.
Lighting sets the mood for your meditation room, so be sure to have dimmers, candles and shades on windows. While there are no specific rules to creating a meditation room, we would like to make one hard-fast rule—no electronics, aside from your music player.
In addition to no phones, it is also best to avoid other electronics, such as video game devices and the TV.
The number one rule of creating a meditative space —unplug and do not allow any technology into your natural space.

Looking for a drug-free, quick-fix, to having the most profound spiritual experiences available to man?
This is an ancient practice where an initiate secludes oneself in pitch black darkness for up to fifteen days, in complete silence.
According to the Taoists and master Mantak Chia, dark room practice stimulates the production of Dimethyltriptamine (DMT) in the brain, which causes transcendental states of altered consciousness, which manifests as feelings of universal compassion and eternal oneness. The tribal natives of the Amazon ingest a brew called Ayahuasca which induces the body to experience the effects of DMT in waking consciousness. In the spirit world one can see your life from a perspective unimaginable from waking consciousness, where you have the chance to uncover and heal from the past (including past life traumas).
In the journeying state, as many call it, you have the opportunity to revisit scenes of your eternal nature as a soul and heal and retrieve fragments of your soul and the vital energy that has been lost throughout all your incarnations. Ayahuasca is a drug that facilitates the healing process which should be done under the guidance of an experienced teacher who will keep you protected while time traveling. No sense stimulation, nobody to speak to, nothing to listen to, zero visual stimuli, only a little bit of food and water, which you will need to survive the prolonged meditation.
If you fancy, you could fast the whole period and get even more out of the process — as you know, food fuels ego and mind and these get in the way when spiritual work needs to be done. Light and darkness are the prime factors that determine the circadian rhythms in the brain, which is responsible for inducing the body into sleep at night for much needed rest. Darkness causes the brain to synthesize the molecule melatonin, which induces sleep and different modes of consciousness, through which subtler realities are experienced in the form of dreams. The magic of the dark room experience is that after about three days in darkness there is so much of a buildup of melatonin in the brain that dreams are experienced in waking consciousness, due to the brain mainly being in the theta frequency which is, essentially, the dream state. You experience visions and see the workings of the subconscious mind more clearly than ever before and, more importantly, you become more lucid and exhibit more control in the astral realm than ever before. It is said that after about three days, once melatonin levels have reached specific levels (15-20mg), the pineal gland starts producing the superconductor pinolene.
This stage is said to allow us to become extremely aware — aware of the external hologram that we consistently create in our head.
At this stage the pineal gland starts to produce the neuro-hormone 5-MeO-DMT(5-methoxy-dimethyltryptamine). From a taoist perspective the benefits of dark room therapy are probably the largest leaps a person can make in terms of spiritual evolution, and all that you require is a cave or a dark setting where you can remain for two weeks undisturbed. The senses and the mind also get a valuable chance to recuperate from the constraints of everyday reality. Those that deny the validity of dark room therapy without even considering trying it, are those that are too afraid of what they may find out about themselves in the dark. For those who practice it regularly, it is of the most spiritually significant stepping stones in their lives.

As most of you reading this probably know by now, music legend Prince passed away recently at the age of 57.
Our friends seem to be genetically more similar to us than strangers, according to a new U.S. Apple cider vinegar works miracles on the unsightly skin lesions like skin tags, moles and warts. The decision letter said, in essence, that while they were interesting, my results were not groundbreaking enough for publication the journal. Not content to rest on that empirical success, Banerjee et al (2012) pressed forward with a second study to examine whether subjects recalling ethical or unethical actions were more likely to prefer objects that produced light (like a candle or a flashlight), relative to objects which did not (such as an apple or a jug). To test this explanation, the second experiment involved 44 subjects watching a scene from Trainspotting to induce disgust, and then having half of them wash their hands immediately afterwards.
Both studies, it seems, make some novel predictions and present a set of results that might not automatically occur to people. In terms of the second study, the authors would likely be looking at another byproduct, this time of a system designed to avoid the perceptions of associations with morally-blameworthy others. With the benefits of meditation becoming increasingly accepted throughout mainstream medical practices, the dark side of meditation is often overlooked and unacknowledged. A regular meditation practice can produce a wide range of positive changes and overall benefits; however, without proper guidance and instruction challenges may arise such as cognitive challenges, changes in sense of self, hyperactive emotions and resurfacing of traumatic memories.

In Europe, the dark room often appeared in underground form as a network of tunnels, in Egypt as the Pyramids, in Rome as the catacombs, and by the Essenes, near the Dead Sea in Israel, as caves. A meditation room will give you a place to participate in daily yoga, chants, and meditation without interruption. The benefits of meditation are still being uncovered, but all discoveries to date show that meditation has a rich healing, transformative power like no other. Take some inspiration from the following ten ways to create your own mediation room, but most importantly, follow your mind and heart, only putting in elements you love—elements that create a personal feeling of zen-like bliss. There is too much going on in the space with a desk, papers, filing cabinets – not to mention the stressful thoughts that come with what’s in an office – work, bills, etc. A few basic recommendations include a small table, a yoga mat, a throw rug, and a pillow for meditation.
In fact, most believe that mediation is all about connecting yourself – mind and body – with nature and your surroundings. This is particularly beneficial for those who live in a busy city area, where the sounds of traffic, trains, and sirens are constantly coming through the walls. It does not necessarily have to be classical music, but any sounds you find soothing, such as ocean sounds, birds chirping, or the whistling sounds of the wind. The use of essential oils from plants, such as lavender, chamomile, and peppermint, can really soothe the soul, the mind, and the body.
Not only does aromatherapy help you relax, but it also provides other benefits. This form of therapy is gaining momentum and is on its way to becoming a mainstream healing aide that is believed to stimulate brain function. This can be any element, smell, sound, or object that particularly soothes your body and relaxes your mind. Any of these are great elements for creating a serene and peaceful environment for you to focus solely on meditating.
Fresh air has many benefits, including boosting your brainpower, improving your overall health, and helping you feel refreshed.
However, if you are indoors, you want to make sure the room is well-ventilated, and you have the opportunity to experience a cool breeze now and again.
Try to create a room outside, but if not, then make sure your indoor room has great air circulation. Some may prefer a very dark paint palette— thinking the dark colors would make the room feel womb-like and envelope them in relaxation. If possible, try to create a shade with an umbrella or a structure that allows you to hang sheer curtains.
While you enjoy relaxing in front of the TV, this is not the type of relaxation that you are trying to achieve during mediation. Choose a quiet spot to avoid noisy distractions and bring in elements of nature, creating a good base to start from. You just may be surprised at what room brings you the relaxing feeling you are looking for, and deserve.
Two weeks away from the existence that you have experienced since the day you have entered physicality.
Mantak Chia goes as far to say that a decoding of DNA is initiated, which causes the attraction of cosmic particles from the universe, decoded in the form of sound, light, knowledge and realization. Only when you feel the waves of orgasmic vibration and unconditional love for the self and others can the process be activated and the essence of the darkroom is magnified. Those who suffer from insomnia can especially benefit from the process, as melatonin levels get a chance to return to healthy levels. Dark room therapy can rejuvenate a person tenfold more than a vacation can, and it won’t cost you an arm and a leg.

Without a list of publications on your resume (or CV, if you want to feel different), your odds of being able to do all sorts of useful things, such as getting and holding onto a job, can be radically decreased. Fair enough; my results were a bit on the expected side of things, and journals do presumably have standards for such things. They predicted this, as far as I can tell, on the basis of embodied cognition suggesting that metaphorical representations are hooked up to perceptual systems and, though they aren’t explicit about this, they also seem to suggest that this connection is instantiated in such a way so as to make people perceive the world incorrectly. Seventy-four students were again split into two groups and asked to recall an ethical or unethical action in their life, asked to indicated their preference for the objects, and estimate the brightness of the room in watts. The authors noted that previous research had found a connection between increasing feelings of disgust and more severe moral judgments, and they wanted to see if they could get that connection to run in reverse: specifically, they wanted to test whether priming people with cleanliness would cause them to deliver less-severe moral judgments about the immoral behaviors of other. Novelty only takes us so far, though: neither study seems to move our understanding of moral judgments forward much, if at all, and neither one even manages to put forth a convincing explanation for their findings.
As cleaning oneself can do things like remove evidence of moral wrongdoing, and thus lower the odds of detection and condemnation, one might feel a slightly reduced pressure to morally condemn others (as the perception of their being less concrete evidence of an association).

A room that allows you to escape the daily stresses of life and connect with a higher power?


Some studies have shown that meditation actually has the power to change the way our brains work. In addition, you want it to be a quiet room in the house, and definitely a room with a limited amount of traffic.
This means that you might want to choose a room that faces the sun for the time of day you plan to meditate. You want a place that allows you to relax your mind and your body, without being distracting.
While it would be ideal to meditate outside in a calming, natural environment, it is not always possible if you live in a busy urban environment. This could be a plant (consider the scent of jasmine), a vase of cut flowers, jars filled with sand and seashells, or even a small water fountain.
Make sure the tracks are long enough to continue playing through your entire mediation session, and consider putting the sounds on repeat to avoid interruption. Choose only a few pieces at a time, and swap them out for different ones now and again if you cannot decide. It is recommended that you choose a sheer fabric in a light shade that will diffuse the light. Make sure you have the ability to have both options, because your mood can change from day-to-day.
This Great White Light, the manifestation of the astral body, enables the self to project externally(astral projection).
It enables the energy body and spirit to journey into hyperspace, beyond third dimensional realms of time and space.
The human states of true compassion and sexual arousal create a new chemistry and a new vibration within the body.
That said, people doing the hiring do not typically care to read through the published research of every candidate applying for the position. That is to say that thinking about a time they behaved ethically or unethically ought to make people’s perceptions about the brightness of the world less accurate, which is a rather strange thing to predict if you ask me. The subjects in the unethical condition again estimated the room as being dimmer (M = 74 watts) than the ethical group (M = 87 watts).
The first experiment involved 40 subjects (20 per-cell seemed to be a popular number) who were asked to complete a scrabbled sentence task, with half of the subjects being posed with neutral sentences and the other half with sentences related to cleanliness.
With respect to the idea of detection and condemnation, then, both studies might be considered to be looking at the same basic kind of byproduct. I have been taking small breaks to deal with them, and going back to the meditation when I feel ready, but I am very comforted to know this research is occurring. This practice connects their souls to the SPIRIT WORLD or, simply put, different dimensions beyond the veil we never see through in a€?waking consciousnessa€?.In the spirit world one can see your life from a perspective unimaginable from waking consciousness, where you have the chance to uncover and heal from the past (including past life traumas).
Or better yet, a room that has a sunset view—now that would be a gorgeous way to begin meditation!
This means that career advancement involves not only publishing plenty of research, but publishing it in journals people care about.
In any case, 40 subjects were asked to think about a time they were ethical or unethical (so 20 per group), and to then estimate the brightness of the room they were in, from 1 to 7.
Immediately afterwards, they were asked to rate the severity of six different actions typically judged to be immoral on a 10-point scale. Without going into too much detail, the first study seem to be looking at what would be a byproducts of a system dedicated to assessing the risk of detection and condemnation for immoral actions. Each week Michael Stone dishes a talk, often on primary texts by Dogen, Patanjali, and the Buddha, that are collaged with today's headlines and psychological insights to produce an engaged shape shifting dharma, at once historical, personal and political.

Though it doesn’t affect the quality of the research in in any way, publishing in the right places can be suitably impressive to some. The authors suggest that this might be the case either because (a) the subjects thought the room was too dim, or (b) that participants were trying to reduce their negative feelings of guilt about acting unethically by making the room brighter. On average, the participants primed with the cleanliness words rated the scenarios as being less wrong (M = 5) than those given neutral primes (M = 5.8). Problems arising in meditation is actually the best result from meditation as we face our concepts and with authentic guidance liberate them.
Ayahuasca is a drug that facilitates the healing process which should be done under the guidance of an experienced teacher who will keep you protected while time traveling.Dark Room Therapy a€” 14 Days of DarknessYes, that is what it will take if you want to get in touch with eternity. In some respects, then, your publications are a bit like recommendations, and some journal’s names carry more weight than others. The first paper deals with the association between light and dark and good and evil, while the second concerns the association between physical cleanliness and moral cleanliness.
This again sounds like a rather peculiar type of connection to posit (the connection between guilt and wanting things to be brighter), and it manages to miss anything resembling a viable functional account for what I think the authors are actually looking at (but more on that in a minute). While the overall difference was significant, only one of the six actions was rated as being significantly different between conditions, despite all showing the same pattern between conditions. In any case, the authors suggested that this may be due to the disgust component of moral judgments being reduced by the primes.
It also seems silly that it matters which journal one’s research is published in in the first place, career-wise, but so does washing your hands in a bright room so as to momentarily reduce the severity of moral judgments to some mild degree. Rejection, I might add, appears be another rather large part of academic life in psychology.
