Atma Namaste Everyone!
Today’s Quote: “Be calm! Be alert! Be focused – even under tremendous pressure.” -GMCKS
About a year ago I was fumbling around on TED.com, looking for something new, something interesting and to be quite honest, something to pass the time…and I found this video.
This 18 min TED talk speaks about heart rate variability (HRV) and how our hearts and brains are intimately connected. The vagus nerve is the physical link connecting heart wisdom to brain wisdom. When we have High HRV coherence we are calm, focused and creative but if we’re in a Low HRV coherence we experience flight or fight, anxiety, and feelings of being overwhelmed.
The researcher demonstrates that when we are under stress, our Prefrontal Cortex (PFC) which deals with abstract and rational thinking, comes to a grinding halt. We literally can’t think momentarily.
Its actually quite funny to see the test subject unable to do a simple math problem while under social pressure.
So how does one become calm, alert, and focused in the midst of tremendous pressure?
By meditating daily you remove layers of stress, anxiety, depression, and many other lower vibrations from the energy body while simultaneously energizing your chakra system to handle the workload of a new day, commitment or project.
Wanna know the most important chakra in dealing with stress?
The Ajna chakra.
This very important chakra allows one to be calm, alert and focused under great pressure. It is located in-between the eyebrows.
Btw, this is NOT the location of the third-eye.
The Ajna is also called the Master Chakra because it energizes, controls and regulates the chakras below it. Its the command center of your chakra system, like Washington DC is the command center of the United States. Its the center of higher will and abstract thinking.
Very few people in the world have strong, developed Ajna chakras. But those who do are very powerful people.
A person with a strong Ajna can be in the midst of a hostile corporate take-over, divorce, bankruptcy, foreclosure, house-fire, or a life or death situation and be able to clearly and accurately assess the situation and achieve the desired outcome. This person is not dominated by their emotions but rather controls his emotions.
Henry Ford and John D Rockefeller Sr were famous for their unshakeability in business.
Think — military generals, professional sports coaches, top surgeons, Fortune 500 CEOs, great spiritual leaders, or anyone is who responsible over many resources and people.
If the world is falling apart around them, these are the people who remain calm, cool and collected.
What do most people do when the shit hits the fan? Fits of rage, yelling cruel & hurtful words, or collapsing emotionally…they become dominated by their lower nature and negative tendencies.
If you are being dominated by negative thoughts and emotions, what kind of quality will your plans, ideas, and action-steps be?
Crappy. Crappy. Crappy.
Just like you’re not suppose to go grocery shopping when you’re hungry, you’re not suppose to make important plans and decisions when you’re emotionally charged.
Meditating daily clears out lower, grosser energies while energizing all of your chakras, including the Ajna. Keep in mind, not all meditations are created equal and each meditation serves a different evolutionary purpose.
I recommend Twin Hearts Meditation for basic to advanced meditators. Try it for 30-days and see if you are more calm, alert and focused. I have been practicing it for over 10-years and its benefits are too innumerable to mention.
The funny thing is…NO ONE can meditate for you.
