Can Meditation Slow Down Aging?

Do you wish you had a magic wand to turn back time?  One answer to looking and feeling much younger is to meditate.  Yes, meditation has been proven to have anti-aging benefits.

When I give presentations and workshops, people always seem to be amazed when I mention how a regular practice of meditation can actually prevent Alzheimer’s.  Studies have shown that meditation can slow down or even stop the onset of Alzheimer’s and dementia.  By increasing alpha waves and training the brain to be more resilient, we can improve memory and create new neuro-pathways for a more balanced mental state.

Another youth enhancer has to do with Telomerase – a relaxation enzyme in your brain.  A study showed that just 15 minutes of daily meditation helps increase telomerase production. Raising our production of this enhances our ability to relax and be more resilient. In fact, anything that helped trigger the relaxation response helps with telomerase production.

Another reason that meditation reduces aging is that it reduces the production of cortisol – a stress induced hormone.  Too much cortisol sends blood sugar levels through the roof.  When sugar binds to these proteins, it makes our skin look like we have spent 30 years in the sun. Meditation trains the brain to feel connected. When we feel isolated and separated, one particular brain region (the “parietal lobe”) becomes overheated. To calm down, practicing meditation on a regular basis can help this process.

Meditation also helps boosts creativity and brain power. Brain imaging studies have shown that highly successful, massively creative people use both brain halves in a much more balanced and integrated way. A regular meditation practice can help create a whole thinking, success mind-set. Professional sports teams now hire mindset coaches to bring out the best in each athlete on their team.  Why not do that for your business team?

Which Voice Will Win?

Two Voices Inside:  Who will Win? 

When you set a huge goal like writing a book or other dreams—resistance will show up in a big way.  Steven Pressfield who wrote the book War of Art: Winning the Inner Creative Battle, points out that your biggest dream will be met with the most resistance.  There’s an old parable that illustrates how to listen to the two voices inside.

An elder Cherokee Indian is teaching his grandson about life and says, “My son, a fight is going on inside people.  He goes on, “It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves that live inside of us.  One wolf is evil–he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.”

He continued, “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you–and inside every other person, too.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf will win?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

 

Energy Flows Where Your Attention Goes  

Feed the voice of expansion and do more to contain the voice of fear and doubt.  Both wolves will always be there.   I’ve noticed as I was getting ready to launch my new book Inner Power NOW and new website, I had a tendency to feed the dark wolf of fear and it became paralyzing.  “What if I fail?  I don’t know what I’m doing?”

If you keep giving into the first dark wolf, it may stop you in your tracks.  But what if we act in spite of those negative feelings or doubts.  Keep moving forward and begin feeding the right wolf, which is also your higher self.   Plant more positive expectations like, “All is well and will be well,” or “I’ll learn from this, no matter what.”  When we act “as if” and expect great things, despite these fears, worries, and doubts you’ll be feeding the white wolf.

Feeding Both Wolves Is the Best Approach

In the Cherokee tradition, there’s another version of this story, where the older Cherokee tells his grandson:

“If you feed them right, they both win.” and the story goes on.  If you only choose to feed the white wolf, the black one will be hiding around every corner waiting for you to become distracted or weak and jump to get my attention. He’ll always be angry and fight the white wolf. But if you acknowledge him, the dark wolf will calm down and be happy.   The white wolf is happy, and we all win.”

“The black wolf has many qualities like tenacity, strategic thinking, and being strong-willed,” explains the grandfather. These are the qualities the white wolf lacks. But the white wolf has compassion, caring, and recognizes what’s in the best interest of all concerned.”

We need to feed both sides of our internal voices.  Acknowledge the black wolf by saying thank you for sharing and trying to keep me safe.

Here goes.  Are you listening — my two internal wolves?  Let’s work together to help bring more stress relief and peace with my new book and programs for Inner Power NOW.  I need both of you on my side, working as a team, to create the highest good for all concerned.

Wishing you and your family the best!

Jack Canfield Divine Timing

Do you believe in Divine timing or synchronicity? See this picture of Jack Canfield #1 New York Times bestselling co-author for Chicken Soup for the Soul®? This is a cassette tape series bought at a Jack Canfield Self-Esteem program several decades ago. Okay, I’m aging myself now. Cassette tapes are a thing of the past.

Back then, Jack Canfield was not a bestselling author at the time He did Self Esteem seminars and led other trainings like Insight and gained a lot of stories running those seminars. Many of those also ended up as part of The Success Principles® book and sparked Chicken Soup for the Soul.®

How to Know It’s Divine Timing

I had loaned these cassette tapes to my sister Marilyn and she repeatedly played them over and over.  Facing a rough time, she found they really helped her set a new way of abundant thinking for herself.  My sister was also the first to attend Jack’s Breakthrough to Success Training.  She claimed something shifted in her, and began living her vision of a richer life.  My sister continually nudged me to go to his intensive training.

It took me another 10 years to finally invest in his Breakthrough to Success Training.  Obviously, I now look back and know that this was “Divine timing” or synchronicity.  It still amazes me how he chose my book Inner Power NOW to endorse and to declare that in front of hundreds of people, something his assistants later told me he does not do.   According to Wikipedia, “synchronicity” is  a concept introduced by psychologist Carl Jung, calling them “meaningful coincidences.” Many believe it may mean you’re on the right path.

Intention and Syncronicity

As a side note, one week before the seminar, I had been meditating asking for a sign I was on the right path. Wow, did I receive it that day, loud and clear.   In hearing me talk about my book, Jack understood my purpose–to help relieve stress in parents and children facing a serious life challenge or health issue.  He later told me that he decided to support my efforts to help end suffering in families.  For his endorsement, I am eternally grateful! It’s obvious those seeds for all of this to unfold began many years ago with buying those cassette tapes.  Life is full of synchronicities, so make sure you stay open to what may unfold, and expect them.  Tell me what “meaningful coincidences” have happened in your life.

Inner Power NOW Book Prelaunch

Next week for the prelaunch of my book, I’ll be offering a FREE sample chapter.  This will include JackCanfield’s Foreword for Inner Power NOW.

Wishing you and your family the best!

Laughter Is the Best Medicine

 Wonder what a big belly laugh can do for you?

Laughter can enhance your mood, your health, and your happiness.  Everything from a slight giggle to huge laughter feeds your spirit and also builds connections and friendships.

You may have heard of the book Anatomy of an Illness by Dr. Norman Cousins published a few decades ago.   Dr. Cousins was almost on his death bed, when he took up watching funny comedies and shows all day long for pain control.  He wound up reversing his illness.    Dr. Cousins later won numerous honorary degrees for writing his book, including the UN Peace Medal.

Laughter Yoga is based on this concept of healthy laughter that can be fun to do in group.  Start laughing and see how contagious it can be.  Keep the laughter going for 15 to 20 minutes.  I have a few exercises to try in a group later in this article.

A daily 15-to-20 minutes of laughter can do wonders for your health.  Researchers Dr. Lee Berk and Dr. Stanley Tan at Loma Linda University in California studied the benefits of laughter and found these results. Start watching comedy shows or cartoons to begin reaping benefits.

 

Blood Pressure Drops

They found laughter lowers blood pressure.  People who lower their blood pressure also reduce their risk of stroke and heart attack.

Reduces Stress Hormones

Researchers found it lowers stress hormones, like cortisol.  By reducing the level of stress hormones, you’re cutting anxiety that impacts your body. Also, it helps build a higher immune system. Laughter, even in the midst of difficult times, releases pressure and helps you cope.

Build Strong Abs

One of the benefits of laughter is that it can help you tone your ab muscles. When you’re laughing, your stomach expands and contracts.  It’s like exercising your abs, but so much more fun.

Improves Your Cardio

Get a great cardio workout with laughter.   Even those who are incapable of doing other physical activity due to injury or illness, may benefit.  Researchers claim laughter burns a similar amount of calories per hour as walking at a slow to moderate pace.  So, laugh more, stress less.

Boosts Your Immunity

When you laugh, you activate T-cells that immediately begin to help you fight off sickness. Next time you feel a cold coming on, add some laughter to make it go away.

Releases Feel Good Hormones

Endorphins are the body’s natural painkillers. By laughing, you can release endorphins, which can help ease chronic pain and make you feel good all over.

Helps WellBeing

Laughter can increase your overall sense of well-being. People who have a positive outlook on life tend to fight diseases better than people who tend to be more negative.  Doctor’s order—smile, laugh, and live longer!

LAUGHTER YOGA

I have presented these exercises in my teacher trainings on mindfulness and they’ve been a hit!  You may feel silly at first, but try these exercises in a group of people, as laughter is contagious. Make sure participants can look around the room and see others laughing.  This is important and adds to the fun!

Exercise 1: You may stand or sit.  As you take a big breath, bring your arms over head arching back a little.  Then bring your arms down with laughter (Ha-ha-ha), having others join in and do the same. Keep doing this for several minutes.  Bringing your arms up overhead, and then down with laughter (Ha-Ha-Ha.)

Exercise 2:  Clap your hands in front of you 3 times, as you say:  “Very good, Very good,”  after the last “Very good,” lift your arms overhead, like the exercised before, and come down laughing.  (Ha-ha-ha.). Keep doing this same exercise for several minutes.

Have a good laugh and pass it on!

How’s Your New Year’s Resolutions Going?

It’s nearly three weeks into the New Year.  How’s your New Year’s resolutions going?  One study reports that only one in three of us who make New Year’s resolutions is successful.  Here’s a best mindset tip for success.  Maybe work on just one at a time.  Here’s how to increase your chances of success in whatever new habits you want to achieve.  Turn your New Year’s resolutions into goals.

What’s the difference between a resolution and a goal?

  1. New Year’s Resolution:“I’m want to lose weight in the new year.”
  2. New Year’s Goal:“I will release 15 pounds by March 30th, and I will do so by working out three days a week while also cutting out junk food, adding more veggies, and reducing my food to three meals a day and nothing in between.

This goal is different than the resolution because it is specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time-limited (S.M.A.R.T.) When it comes to results, you’re far more likely to lose 15 pounds with this kind of goal than a New Year’s resolution.

S.M.A.R.T. Goal

A good goal is one that spells out who is responsible for a desired outcome, and how to meet that outcome.

  1. Specific. A good goal is specific like who, what, when, where, and why. It tells you not only what you eventually hope to accomplish, but also the steps you must take to get there.
  2. Measurable. What will you measure to see success?  In the example above, success means releasing 15 pounds. Being specific is much more effective than the hope or wish of losing some weight.
  3. Attainable. Giving yourself the ability to meet your goals in a reasonable manner helps you avoid discouragement along the way.
  4. Realistic. Realistic goals mean you’re willing to attain the goal. If you are not “willing” to do the work, then don’t set the goal. It will only lead to disappointment. You can pick up the goal when you’re ready.
  5. Timely. Also, make sure that you put a date on the goal. It can be for a special event, or it can just be a date that is about three months away. Giving yourself a time frame will boost motivation.

Now that you know how to make S.M.A.R.T goals, take one of your New Year’s Resolutions and make it happen with these vital steps as outlined above.  Consider who you want to be in the future, and then employ S.M.A.R.T. goals to help you create the life you want.

One more tip, visualize daily how great you’ll look and feel having reached your goal.  Bring in all the positive feelings and emotion.  This will supercharge your efforts.

What’s Your Vision in the New Year?

As we embrace the New Year, do you have a clear vision of your future?  There’s a visioning process that may help you make the most of your best intentions.  It’s inspired by the Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith, bestselling Author featured in the movie “The Secret” about the Law of Attraction.  He’s also written books and has audio programs on the Life Visioning Process.

You may do this alone or in a group.  It can be quite powerful when you gather in a group and hold good intentions for yourself and others.

Visioning Process Guided Imagery

Have a journal or paper with you for this Guided Imagery.

Close your eyes, and take a couple of deep breaths in and out.  Release all negativity, stress and tension in your body, as you breath in peace and release your breath, saying “free.” (Pause for 20 seconds.) Sense and imagine the love that is all around you and invite this loving presence into your heart. (Pause for 20 seconds.) Find this inner light within that wants to feel joy.

This loving light wants to express through your body to create and expand.  Take a few moments to sense this energy inside your body now.  In your mind’s eye, take a minute to notice its size, shape and color.  Whether it’s huge or very small, this does not matter.

Next, move your awareness into this energy.  Welcome this part of you that wants to feel joy, creativity, love, and peace. Spend at least 15 to 20 minutes on this journaling and visioning process.

Ask Your Inner Coach Questions:

  1. “What is the divine vision for myself in the New Year?  What does it look and feel like?    Allow all sensations, images, messages to appearTake some time to freely receive whatever thoughts, feelings, images etc. that come.  Then record them on paper allowing several minutes.
  2. How does my life look as this divine vision for 2019 manifests? Consider your relationships, health,  success and prosperity.  What is wanting to come through as your higher self? How are you acting and flowing as this future self? (Pause and receive whatever thoughts, feelings, images etc. that come. This may take a few minutes.)  Then, record them on paper.
  3. What needs to be released for this vision to manifest?  Pause and receive whatever thoughts, feelings, images that may come. (This may take a few minutes.  Then, record them on paper.
  4. What else wants to be known?
    (freely receive whatever thoughts, feelings, images etc. that come…
    record them on paper allowing several minutes)

After you’ve completed the visioning, spend time talking or writing about the meaning of these images, thoughts & feelings.

Allow them to formulate into a sense of direction for the coming year.

Wishing you the best in 2019!

Kindness Matters: Pass it On

Today is International Kindness Day.  In a day and age where civility seems to have gone by the wayside, what can we do to create more kindness? Do you know that there’s a direct correlation between showing kindness and receiving kindness? The two acts feed off one another and lead to a perpetual cycle of giving. Your kindness does matter as it ripples out into the world.

Scientists have also discovered a certain hormone called oxytocin which increases when we are empathic or generous. When the level of oxytocin increases, the circuit in the brain that controls fear, anxiety and rage shuts down. That is why practicing kindness leads to greater empathy and morality. It is also difficult to hold a grudge.

It is important to teach children about kindness—what it is, how to identify it, and how to practice it. We develop empathy following rules for expected behavior in the classroom, preventing bullying and developing compassion. Children learn by playing. When children are role-playing, they are also learning about perspectives and skills to stand in another’s shoes. We learn about our differences and similarities.

If we have not learned basic kindness skills by the time we are around 8 years old, it is very difficult to teach. This lack of empathy leads to anti-social behavior.

Without empathy, we have no chance at civility. We need that connection to feel human. We also need to be connected to a purpose greater than our own. Our inner power helps to create the best mindset through meditation and connecting to our heart.

Model civility, practice kindness every day, whether opening a car door, helping a lost puppy find its home, or helping a senior citizen cross the road safely. The very act of kindness creates more kindness, more empathy, and self-respect, and more “feel-good” hormones.

Engaging in kindness and compassion is what makes for a grateful society. And who doesn’t need a little more gratitude in our world? Here’s a way to begin your day in kindness and gratitude with this morning six-minute meditation. Click here to download for FREE this meditation and join my Inner Power Circle!

As Comedian and Talk Show Host Ellen DeGeneres always says, “Be kind to one another!”

Challenge: Would You Go Over the Edge?

What challenge have you faced lately?  I have just returned from an Advanced Meditation Conference in Toronto with Bestselling Author Dr. Joe Dispenza of “You Are the Placebo.” As an international speaker, author, researcher, and educator, Dispenza is passionate about helping people reach their potential.  Upon arrival, we are told that our group will be the first to take on a challenge. I say to myself, “What challenge? I don’t remember reading about any challenge. What does that have to do with meditating?”   So, there we are, one-thousand participants from over 20 different countries being tested to face our fears.

Then our team leader says that we are going to repel down a 33-story building tomorrow.  What did she say?  Repel down a skyscraper?  All the fear begins. I’m not doing that! Are they crazy? I’m not in the greatest physical shape.  When I think of mountain climbers, they train for this!

At this point, I am quite upset. What a way to begin the conference! So that evening, I decide not to sign the release but to think about it overnight. After talking with my husband, who is also concerned, I look up the company on the Internet.  Over the Edge has a good reputation for team-building and fundraising. My team leader had said that over 78,000 people have gone over the edge, without injuries.

The next morning, I sign the release–off to face my biggest fears.

As we wait for our turn on top of the Westin Hotel in Toronto, we encourage each other. I keep doing my mindful breathing, barely looking over the edge at the 33 stories below. Then it’s finally my turn for the challenge. My stomach churns.  I say a prayer, and keep doing my breath work.

At first when I go over the edge in my harness, it’s quite scary.  This is the hardest part. I go sideways, then had my knees dangling against the building. But soon I have enough rope to stretch out my legs.  Soon I get into a rhythm, releasing more rope, jumping to the next level.  At one point, I feel like Spiderman scaling down the building.   In the end, I successfully go “over the edge” and make it down the building safely.  I credit my mindfulness training and breathing with helping me surpass my edge.

The majority of attendees did repel down the Westin. Some did not, for a variety of reasons, but all learned from this experience.  The company said we may have broken a world record for the most people to repel down a building in such a short time. I am so grateful to have overcome my fear, with the help of my Over the Edge crew member who was part trainer and part life coach.

This conference was an amazing experience and I will be sharing more in later blog posts.  You never know what edge may come up in the future—but because of overcoming this challenge, I’ll be more confident  that I’ll be successful with my next life challenge.

5 Tips for More Happiness

Where Are You on the Happiness Scale?

Can you choose to be happier?  Psychology professor David T. Lykken believes we each have a “happiness set point.”  Yet, other Psychologists who study happiness believe we can improve our state of emotions.  Try focusing on gratitude and appreciation and creating the intention to be happier.  Here are a few Best Mindset tips to help you expand your happiness.

Tip # 1: Choose Happier Thoughts

Choose to make happiness a top goal.  Author of The Happiness Hypothesis Jon Haidt teaches positive psychology and for homework, he assigns his students to make themselves happier during the semester.   Some of these include: being more forgiving or more grateful. They also learn to challenge negative thoughts.

Tip #2: Make a Gratitude List

In his book, Authentic Happiness, University of Pennsylvania psychologist Martin Seligman encourages readers to perform a daily “gratitude exercise.” It involves listing a few things that make them grateful. This shifts people away from bitterness and despair, he says, and promotes happiness.  I also keep a gratitude rock by my nightstand and before bed, I remind myself of 3 to 5 things that I’m grateful for.

Tip #3: Continue to Forgive

Michael McCullough and Robert Emmons, researchers who edited The Psychology of Happiness claim holding a grudge can affect your health.  One way to curtail these kinds of feelings is to practice forgiveness. This reduces the power of bad events to create bitterness and resentment, and add stress to your body.

Tip #4: Build Friendships

There’s nothing like a good laugh with dear friends, and this also promotes happiness. Author of The Pursuit of Happiness David G. Myers found one Australian study that showed people over 70, who had the strongest network of friends, lived the longest. Myers claims the “social ties that bind also provide support in difficult times.”

Tip #5: Find Meaningful Activities

People are seldom happier than when they’re in the “flow.” This is a state in which your mind becomes thoroughly absorbed in a meaningful task that challenges your abilities. Psychology research has found watching TV ­­produces some of the lowest levels of happiness. It turns out that to get more out of life, we need to put more into leisure time.  Choose activities that you most enjoy doing.  They’re good for your mental health and your happiness.

Ask Empowering Questions for Results

You may be familiar with affirmations.  Why not try asking empowering questions instead?  Let’s say you set a goal of making more sales.  Many success leaders say to keep saying an affirmation like, “I am increasing sales easily and effortlessly.”  You are told to keep repeating this affirmation and to put sticky notes of this affirmation all over the place.  These powerful affirmations then should reach your subconscious mind to help make it happen.  For some, this method works beautifully, but many are not seeing results.

For a lot of us, when we say the affirmation, there’s a little voice inside our head that doesn’t believe it, “Yeah right, this is just a terrible sales month, nobody wants what I’m  offering.”  So, what do you think your subconscious is believing?  That you do not believe it’s possible to increase sales, and that’s what shows up.  It’s the power of belief, that feeling inside, that wins

Author Noah St. John in his book The Secret Code of Success has a method that he calls “Afformations,” which is taking your goals and asking empowering questions.  Like in the example from before about boosting sales, you would ask, “Why am I increasing sales easily and effortlessly? The brain is wired to give you better outcomes when you ask empowering questions.

There are two types of questions: empowering and disempowering questions. Disempowering questions normally come from that negative voice inside: “Why do I feel so bad today?” “Why can’t I lose more weight?” Asking yourself these kinds of negative questions will give you negative results.  So, turn it around.  Ask empowering questions, like, “Why do I feel so good today?”  Or Why am I losing so much weight so easily?  When you ask better questions, your mind automatically focuses on getting results

If you want to learn about this and other ways to increase the best mindset, check out my custom sessions.

“Empowering questions cause your mind to focus on the positive. The only answers to empowering questions are answers or experiences that produce feelings of self-esteem and a positive self-image! Empowering questions lead to answers that tell the Truth about Who You Really Are,” Noah says in his book.

Take another example.  I am rich, would then become “Why am I so rich?”  Here are few more empowering questions:

  • Why am I so happy?
  • Why am I more than good enough?
  • Why do I know my life purpose?
  • Why do I attract only good things in my life?

Here are the steps after you have a few empowering questions:

  1. Write down your Afformations based on your goals
  2. Meditate on one of your empowering questions
  3. As you receive answers, take action
