ReincarnateWhen we reach the end of our life it is said that we get to review our life. For me this rings true.

Our spirit guides are there with us and we review our life, from start to finish, kind of like on a big cinema screen.

We see and feel how we have influenced others in positive and negative ways throughout our lives and we see the lessons we learnt or didn’t learn.

We see things from a higher perspective, how spirit views things.

Sixth SenseI encourage you all to spend a moment to sit and relax and listen to that still, small voice…

What is it, this feeling, this instinct we all have?

Your sixth sense enables you to know. To know more than your five common senses tell you.

It is a seemingly intangible thing, yet when we feel it, we know it.

Affirmations for WealthMoney is an important aspect of our lives, and allows us to have freedom and enjoy the pleasures of the material world.

Abundance can take on many forms, not only money.

We can have an abundance of friends, an abundance of health and happiness, or an abundance of passion and zest for life, to name a few examples.

These positive affirmations will help to reprogram your subconscious mind and beliefs from a limited state into a positive expansive state of mind.

Meaning of my Favorite ColorEvery color in the visible light spectrum has a different frequency.

It’s no coincidence that rainbows always appear to us in the order of Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet. It is a scientific fact that each color vibrates, or exists with a different energy.

As color is everywhere, we take for granted the effect it has on our lives. But just because we are not aware does not mean that we are not influenced by the powerful energies each color has.

The use of color with specific intent has been used for centuries – but at no time more than now.

My Meditation RetreatWell I am not long back from another camping trip. Now some people might like to spend their break lying on the couch, doing the chores they can never find time for, or sitting on a deck chair drinking fancy drink with umbrellas.

Me? I love getting back to nature… with no phone, no clock and no computer.

The most easterly point of Australia is Byron Bay. (If you can picture a map of Australia it is about half way up on the right.) The world heritage listed wilderness of Toonumbar National Park is about 2 hours inland from there.

NumerologyI get the relationship between astrology and astronomy.

As the planets move to different positions they affect our energy and behavior. (It’s so easy to see with the tides and the phase of the moon)(And the moods of my ex-girlfriend! ha).
But when numerology was first explained to me I thought the people that believed it were gullible and desperate for insight.

To define it, Numerology is the method of creating a relationship between numbers and living things.

I.e. Each letter of the alphabet has been given a numeric value. A=1, B=2, etc. If you write your name down and allocate the values to each letter, you can add up those values in different ways to tell you divined secrets about your personality and destiny.

What is Channeling?Chances are you have heard of the word channeling before, or seen a live channeling or read a channeled article.

But what is channeling and can anybody do it?

Channeling is a natural state and most people do it all the time without realizing it. We may call it a hunch or a gut feeling which later turns out to be correct. You could say there is unconscious channeling, which everyone does, and conscious channeling that a medium does. Anyone can learn to channel and become a medium, but not everyone desires to.

Absolute FreedomA guest post by Brad Austen.

Lately I’ve been enjoying some time away from computers and technology.

I came to the realization that in one sense technology liberates us but at the same time also can enslave us.

The enslavement is the time it takes out of our days, where we could be enjoying the sunshine or a sunset.

I started to think about freedom and what it really means to be free.

Body Mind Spirit HealingA guest post by Brad Austen.

We are multidimensional beings and it is commonly known we comprise of three parts; a mind, body and spirit.

It is also known that energetically we have a physical body, an emotional body, a mental body and a spiritual body.

The human body is made of light that has slowed to a point that it has become dense matter. Part of the journey humanity is on at this time, is to ascend and grow spiritually. Everyone needs healing on some level. For those on the path, the physical body is beginning to change and become less dense.

The energy in our auras is also changing and beginning to vibrate quicker. Our cells are changing to hold more light, so we can hold more of our spirit in human form. This is a gradual process that occurs over many years.

Your Beliefs and BehaviorI saw this quote and it really made me think…

“Your beliefs don’t make you a better person, your behavior does.”

So your beliefs do not define who you are – your actions do.

But how often do we hold up our beliefs or hide behind them?

Our beliefs are really just meant to be a heading on who we are and how we act.

What is the point of having beliefs if they don’t manifest in our day to day lives and define who we are?

Ego and SoulTwo natural parts of our human expression are the ego and the soul.

Although we all have both of these aspects in our nature, some people have more balance (or lack of) in their personality.

Our journey from childhood to adulthood can be challenging and our ego is designed to protect us. However the ego will never give us any long-term satisfaction or empowerment.

As a human with free will, we have the choice to nurture our ego or soul.

Life PathThis is a time for new beginnings. The past is behind us and it is time for us to move forward.

Most people don’t strive for new beginnings because the unknown is scary.

Even though people may not like where they are at the moment (job, relationship, anything), it is still familiar, comfortable, predictable … and requires minimal effort.

It is often avoidance (not being honest with ourselves) and resistance (too hard to change which is based on fear) that stops us.

It is not possible to move in two directions at the same time, so whilst we are wasting our energy fighting against what we don’t want, we make no progress towards what we do want.

Making ChoicesIn this post I would like to talk to you about choice.

One of the greatest gifts we have been given is the gift to make choices about everything in every moment.

What will I eat? When will I go to sleep? When will I wake up? What will I do today? What will I think today? How will I react today?

We make choices constantly all day long which create and affect our life today and also create and affect our future moments.

The series of choices we make today affect our future, not some predestined writings.

Faith in your Life PathI hope you have been enjoying the varied information on Explore Meditation. As I continue to explore my spiritual interests, I will continue to share what I find … So stay tuned for more.

Entertaining the ideas of Past Lives and Reincarnation absolutely amazes me because of the really big picture it paints in my mind. The scope of this is huge. The scale of perspective pushes my comprehension and understanding. We really are spiritual beings having a human experience, and so many people have no idea!

These concepts have made me realized that humans give so much focus, (both our time and energy), to things, thoughts and situations that in the grand scheme of things are really insignificant.

MeditationJust the other day I got in a Fight!

I was out near my Worm Farm, transplanting a few cherry tomato seedlings when it all began.

I had a bag of potting mix between my knees, both hands full of dirt and BAMMO!

One of the neighbor’s bees lined me up and took me down with one hit (but not before I squealed hysterically, ran in circles and threw dirt everywhere).

I was stung on the top of my cheek, just below my right eye. I was home alone and a little worried about the effects, as I had been stung on my foot a few years previous and my whole leg swelled. Luckily, this time, Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation saved a disaster. My face did swell a little – but only enough to cut some vision and make me look a little chubby. But the worst thing of all – It hurt when I smiled.

India Pilgimage
I never wanted to go to India. Never.

I did have a mental list of places I wanted to travel to in the world, and India would have been lucky to get a mention in the top 50.

But while seeing a local therapist for an energy healing, he ignited the blasters that rocket launched India to Number 1!

All he actually said was, “I’m feeling the energy of ‘Babaji’ which is weird… I usually get Sai Baba,” but that was all it took.

I then went for a cup of tea with my good friend Jayanti Woods (who makes an amazing Chai from scratch), and asked if she had ever heard of this ‘Babaji’. Without a word of a lie her exact reply was, “I was the President of the Australian Babaji Society for years. What would you like to know?”

Picture of BabajiI left her house with armfuls of books and started to research this amazing being.

The picture to the left is reportedly the first image ever taken of him (in this incarnation!).

Soon after, Babaji came to me in a dream and I could feel his energy flow through me on occasion when I was giving a healing massage.

Mother India was calling my name. She sent whispers on the breeze and sprinkled her allure in my dreams.

Energy with IntentEnergy is contagious. We see and feel this all of the time.

For example, you just have to have one person gossiping or putting someone down in the workplace and the negative energy begins to filter into the environment – Or if you are in a room full of babies, one can start to cry and before you know it they are all crying.

The good news is it is up to us to decide what form of energy we wish to spread.

Clearing Subtle BodyMeditation is the basic practice to attain balance within our physical, mental and emotional bodies.

Meditation enables us to live with greater happiness in today’s stressful atmosphere.

Keeping yourself in balance should be a priority, but it can be a very tough task without Meditation.

Meditation provides the opportunity for everyone to receive joy and happiness in all aspects of their lives.
