Nervous System Reboot With Reiki

Debilitating aspects of stress build over time. One way to reset our baseline stress levels is via self care toward the nervous system, specicifically the Vagus nerve. In today's meditation we use breathing, movement, and reiki to 'reboot' the nervous system. This podcast is made possible with great thanks to our subscribers on Patreon.

Your Heart's Desire

What is a heart's desire? It can be a desire of the moment: to sleep, to daydream, to smell the ocean, to eat my favorite meal, to spend time in community or with loved ones. It can be a lifelong desire: What is my purpose, my calling, my service, my passion? What would I do every day if I could do anything ... where hours pass, and it feels like minutes? Whether we are in a life-milestone crisis, seeking to adjust course, or simply checking in about what we really want, acknowledging our heart's desire can help us to align our choices with our values and needs. In today's meditation, we seek our heart's desire. This podcast is made possible with great thanks to our subscribers on Patreon. Join our community at Patreon (dot) com (slash) theMeditationPodcast

Reiki For Big Feelings

Overwhelm, anxiety, stress, grief, frustration. These intense, 'big feelings' can sap our energy, our drive, our focus, our presence, and our joy. In today's meditation, we allow the Universal Life Force of Reiki to help us experience peace, even within the intensity of our big feelings.

Reiki Together

When we direct life force energy toward ourselves, we sometimes get stuck in an isolation loop. This can happen when our need to receive healing energy conflicts with our power to give it. By directing our power toward others, we allow it to flow more fully - including within ourselves. In today's meditation, we practice moving life energy together.

Autumn Seed Meditation

As we enter the fall season, nature shows us an example of turning inward. Like plants dropping their leaves to allow their outward selves to fall away, we can also drop the parts of ourselves that no longer nourish us. This is part of a global life cycle, nourishing the essence, the seed of life within us. In today's meditation, we focus on our inner essence, and prepare for the darkness of winter.

I don't know about you, but I've been feeling exhausted. My energy levels alternate between hyperfocused and hyperalert to lethargic and unmotivated. I go to bed buzzing, and I wake up tired.

Home Blessing

Since 2020, our concept and purpose of 'home' has evolved. For many of us, home has become more of a refuge, a sanctuary, an office, a workspace, and we may have experienced significant changes in where we lay our heads. In today's meditation we fill our home with awareness, peace, appreciation, and unconditional love. This podcast is made possible with great thanks to our subscribers on Patreon.

Inward Smile

Smiling feels good, calms our stress levels, stimulates the Vagus nerve, and sends a message to our psyche that we are ok. As a mindful practice, smiling disrupts patterns of self-judgment by circulating kindness and unconditional love to ourselves. In today's meditation, we smile inward.

Healing Frequency

Being human is naturally resilient. I believe that our natural state is health and wholeness. It is also a natural human process to lose track of our wholeness, to 'forget' who we are. When we forget our nature we are often tempted to 'try' to 'fix' ourselves, when our most effective action may be to simply allow. In today's meditation, we amplify our healing ferquency, and allow our bodies, minds, and spirits the space to heal. This podcast is made possible with great thanks to our subscribers on Patreon.

Eye of the Hurricane

Modern life is full of distractions. Our jobs, screens, and apps all pull our attention by design. Environmental noise from people, animals, and machines can all distract our focus and affect our mood. We tend to shift our attention to whatever alert, sound, or nudge is the loudest and most persistent. When our environment feels out of our control, we may lose focus on our current task, and we may off-track our habits and intentions. In today's meditation, we center ourselves in the eye of the hurricane. This podcast is made possible with great thanks to our subscribers on Patreon.

Experience Your Divine Nature

A paradox of human existence: when I turn my attention upon myself, am I the self being observed, or am I the Self that is observing? The idea of a 'higher self' is one way to experience the part of ourselves that exists both within and outside of us, independent of our bodies, independent of the physical world. In today's meditation, we experience our higher self, our divine nature. This podcast is made possible with great thanks to our subscribers on Patreon.

Should Compassion

Last Friday I slipped on ice, hit my head on a stone stair, and got a concussion. It affected my thought process quite a lot. I was tired, had splitting headaches, and had trouble comprehending and speaking words. Until yesterday I felt strange, not like myself, like something was off. I am ok, and am now recovering, but with my brain working on healing itself, I have not had much capacity for complex thought or "strenuous mental activity". This experience led me to think a lot about shoulds. The things I feel I should be doing, the life or career milestones I should have reached by now, the project I should start, or the project I should finish. Shoulds come from our survival needs and fears, our societal and cultural messages, the voices of our well meaning friends and families, and our own self talk. Our shoulds are often tied closely with our self worth. And so, in today's meditation, we listen to our shoulds with compassion.

Peaceful Heart

When we raise our inner voices of self-loathing, criticism, and doubt, the noise can grow into chaos. We need a consistent inner voice - the quiet internal rhythm that literally pumps life through our bodies. In today's meditation, we center our attention on the heartbeat.

Grieving and Healing

Welcome to The Meditation Podcast. This is Jesse Stern with Episode 109, Grieving and Healing. My oldest friend died last week. We were born 6 months apart, friends since birth. He was like a brother to me. He was my first companion in meditation and healing work. He was severely abused as a child. The trauma of his abuse led to severe mental illness. He spent many years of his adult life between housing stability and homelessness, and between mental stability and schizophrenia. He died alone. I am in shock, I am angry, and I am sad. In today's meditation, we honor and grieve for those we love.. This podcast is made possible with great thanks to our subscribers on Patreon.
