Improving Meditation

Written by Dale Power

If you have ten years to sit atrepparttar bottom of a dark cave you can really master meditation. Short of that you could enroll in a monastery and devote your life to contemplation. Perhaps you would rather move to India and become a yogi?

For a long time such extreme techniques and lifestyle changes have beenrepparttar 122126 only way to really do what we have wanted in regards to psychic power and ability. Even if you are willing to do it though, it has been kind of hard to find someone you can trust to push food throughrepparttar 122127 little slot inrepparttar 122128 door each day or pay forrepparttar 122129 plane ticket.

Most people have an innate feeling that if they could just concentrate a little harder, go just a little deeper into their own minds, they would be able to unleash incredible power. All reliable reports say that they are right to believe this. Most people also find it hard to set aside an hour for meditation, never mind ten years.

Here is a simple method that can takerepparttar 122130 place of that ten year journey inside yourself. You still have to pay attention and use discipline to get where you wish to be, but you will speed things up several hundreds times, reaching levels of meditation that many have thought could not be reached at all and certainly not by city dwelling folk like most of us!

The concept here is a bit circular. You use what meditative skills you have to generate a psychic field, which will carry your mind into a deeper and more focused state. In that deeper state you reinforcerepparttar 122131 psychic field, which will drive you deeper still.

When you reachrepparttar 122132 state you wish you simply setrepparttar 122133 psychic field to resonate with that level of thought and you will easily maintain your place.

I am not suggesting that anyone give up their meditative practices and move to only this technique. Think of this as more of a tool to help you speed up your progress, rather than a complete program. After all, no single tool will ever replace self-discipline for getting things done. It also never hurts to give new skills an honest try, if you wish to perform at a higher level.

Some of these steps will take a little work to perfect, but don’t let feeling a little shaky on one or two of them stop you though, as this method has a tendency to work itself into a consistently stronger format on its own! So lets get started.

*Allow your mind to quite. If you have meditative skills, begin by going into yourself as deeply as you can. If you are new to meditation, just try to makerepparttar 122134 inside of your head feel quiet and hollow. Don’t worry about doing it correctly. Just acknowledge any thoughts coming in and set them aside for a few minutes.

*In this quiet space, you will want to focus onrepparttar 122135 feeling of your mind moving into a deeper place. It is important that you focus onrepparttar 122136 “feeling” orrepparttar 122137 raw “knowing” of what you want. Try not to dwell on particulars. Your subconscious mind will get you where you need to be, you are just providingrepparttar 122138 basic suggestion to go there. At this point you will have automatically begun to form a psychic information field around your mind.

Interpreting Tarot Cards

Written by Maria Svensson

Interpreting Tarot cards is, as you might expect, quite difficult and requires much practice. So is there an easy way? A short cut? yes - by focusing only onrepparttar Major Arcana cards. What arerepparttar 122125 major cards I hear you ask? The standard tarot deck, whatever imagery is used to depictrepparttar 122126 symbols, is 78 cards in 2 sections, namelyrepparttar 122127 major and minor arcanas. The major cards are by farrepparttar 122128 most important, and for quick readings, it is perfectly permissible simply to discardrepparttar 122129 minor cards and concentrate solely onrepparttar 122130 major arcana ('secrets' in latin). To lay outrepparttar 122131 cards in a standard reading is beyondrepparttar 122132 scope of this article, consult if you need instructions on how to start a reading.

There are 22 major arcana cards, each one of which symbolizes an aspect of our existence. In our lives, we are constantly influenced in terms of our essential drives by forces that are depicted inrepparttar 122133 Tarot. Together,repparttar 122134 major Arcana representrepparttar 122135 'Fools Journey' -repparttar 122136 trip we all make - our lives in other words. To become a fully rounded individual and completerepparttar 122137 journey successfully, each quality represented byrepparttar 122138 cards must be experienced or in some cases mastered.

These 'qualities' we all must experience are universal, although of courserepparttar 122139 order they occur in our lives andrepparttar 122140 particular formrepparttar 122141 lesson takes is completely individual. Fromrepparttar 122142 '0' card (representing our first awareness) to card 21 (fulfillment), each of these cards is a stage onrepparttar 122143 road to our final destination. When giving a reading, you must remember that although these universal experiences and lessons must be in everyone's life, your client will not have experienced them inrepparttar 122144 same way as you (or even at all yet!) and so you must be careful not to superimpose your own life experiences onrepparttar 122145 cards as they fall.

Takingrepparttar 122146 cards in order, we start withrepparttar 122147 Fool. Based onrepparttar 122148 medieval 'jester',repparttar 122149 Fool can watch, mimic and make fun of others. Asrepparttar 122150 Fool is essentially unpredictable and full of surprises, this card is a reminder that life has unlimited potential. Simultaneously,repparttar 122151 Fool stresses that fact that life is basically good. The very innocence ofrepparttar 122152 Fool brings him joy. In readings,repparttar 122153 Fool often signals a new start or change in direction. He also puts you on guard to keep your faith and trust your own instincts. Believe in yourself and follow your heart, your own convictions are right, and no one else can tell you otherwise, no matter how mad your course may seem onrepparttar 122154 outside.
