    Bumping this thread once again


    Let's give it another go for tomorrow [Sunday, May 5th @18:00GMT].

    Hey Omi,

    Just FYI, maybe we should coordinate with British Summer Time rather than Greenwich Mean Time as that is what is currently in use. I've updated the converter in case that is what we would like to do

    https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclo...z_cdt&p4=tz_pt

    Love,

    Ken

    Hi Ken,

    Good call, so then we can stick with the same time as before
    Thanks for going ahead to change the time converter
    Your help and support is greatly appreciated

    Much light, much love

    Hiromi

    There can be suggestions here for the different intentions.

    For example, the conflict between Israel and Gaza is rather intense again. Perhaps we could try to harmonize such incidents with the meditation if we focus on it. There are of course many sources of conflict on planet Earth at the moment, but the way to peace is possible if people desire such an outcome and imagine it in their hearts and minds. Blessings.


    That was a very encouraging experience of seeing results so quickly and big!

    Hopefully there will be less conflicts in Gaza and continue to be more peaceful.

    Hello everyone,

    For next Sunday's weekly meditation on May 12th, let us meditate with intentions of gratitude toward all of the mothers, alive or deceased, who give/ have given us much nurture and love in their own caring ways.
    Wishing everyone a wonderful Mother's day weekend!

    Alongside that, my intentions for the meditation will start each time with healing intentions towards all Avalon members and guests, their loved family members, pets, and friends, and then to any particular individuals who are in need of help in healing.


    Just this past week I've noticed these threads:

    "Contactee - I NEED HELP"

    "Painful ‘Polyamory’ Marriage"

    "The spiritual or emotional aspect of physical disease"


    As much as I would like to be more active in thread discussions, I honestly cannot give so much of my time at the moment into seeing all the recent threads and posts, which some of them seem to have long, detailed writings. That doesn't mean that I don't care about them, quite the contrary.

    If people feel they can request for help through this Avalon meditation, please, by all means, take this opportunity.
    This is what this thread is for.

    One of my favorite meditation methods, the Anahata-Heart Chakra Meditation.
    There are dozens of ways just for meditating on the heart, here's my version.

    (Skip to step 4 if you are familiar with how to get into meditation.)


    Meditation Instructions

    1. Sit in a comfortable position, either lotus pose or on a chair. Keep your spine straight for a good posture and concentration. Let your hands rest on your knees or laps.

    2. Gently close your eyes.

    3. Breathe normally and calmly. With each exhale, go slower and deeper.

    4. Visualize a stream of energy from above (heaven) to flow into your body through the top of your head (Sahasrara-crown chakra).

    5. Visualize the energy from the earth to flow through the bottom of your spine at the Muladhara-root chakra.

    6. With the energies from heaven and earth, gather them into a ball of energy by your Anahata-heart chakra.

    7. Visualize the ball of energy to shine brighter and stronger, like the sun in a clear sky. Feel the warmth of this energy, hold this image for a while. Put intentions of love, compassion, joy, and peace into this energy and continue to strengthen it.

    8. Let the ball of heaven-earth energy in your Anahata to grow bigger, expanding itself throughout your whole body. Hold this image of your whole body shining with the heaven-earth energy that is emanated from the heart.

    9. Expand the heaven-earth energy out of your physical body to create a sphere that surrounds you. Hold this image of the heaven-earth energy sphere that gives you protection as you continue to breathe calmly and comfortably.

    10. Slowly bring back your awareness to your physical senses and open your eyes.

    Happy meditating ♡

    For nature lovers



    Forest Bathing Meditation (Shinrin-Yoku)


    Preparation


    • Choose a day with nice weather, when you have enough relaxed time to venture out into the nature.

    • Wear comfortable clothes and shoes.

    • Bring a bottle of water and anything else that you may need.

    • Option: Bring along your pet dog(s).



    Step 1.
    As you approach a forest, walk a bit slower than usual to use your senses with more awareness. Notice what you see, hear, smell, touch, or sometimes possibly taste.

    Step 2. Find a place in the forest where you can sit comfortably. It can be on a soft grassy area, tree stump, log, rock, etc.

    Step 3. Place your hands with the palms facing up and fingers relaxed. Keep your back straight for good focus and better circulation of energy through your body.

    Step 4.
    Gently close your eyes and take a few normal breaths to relax your body and mind. Then go into deeper breathing by inhaling with 4 counts, then exhaling with another 4 counts.

    Step 5.
    Visualize a stream of energy from earth entering into your body from the base of your spine, and energy from the forest atmosphere entering through your crown chakra and both hands, filling your whole body. Try to also feel the energy of the natural elements of where you are sitting.

    Step 6.
    Give thanks and blessings to the clean air, water, soil, plants, flowers, and wild animals that are all part of the forest life. Feel the sunlight that gives them life-force energy. Become part of it - feel that you are well-grounded with safety and security, receiving the nurturing energy as beautiful gifts of Mother Earth to live more harmoniously.

    Step 7.
    When you are ready, slowly bring your awareness to your physical body and its senses as you gently open your eyes.

    Thank you to everyone who've meditated together in our session today.
    I truly feel grateful to connect with every one of you through our subconscious minds.


    For next Sunday May 26th, 2019

    There was a request from onawah on the thread "Julian Assange arrested after Ecuador tears up asylum deal" to meditate on Julian Assange's case.

    Here are the intentions for the meditation that onawah wrote to me in a PM.
    (She's given me permission to share it on this thread.)

    Quote I would like to see his release from prison with all charges against him immediately dropped, publicly vindicated from the accusations that have been made against him, all the lies that have been told against him revealed for what they are, and his great international contribution to journalism and human rights recognized.

    He is a great hero and should be regarded and treated as such, allowed to pursue journalism as he sees fit, and to live out the rest of his life unharmed, as a free citizen.
    Please feel free to make any additions to the intentions for the meditation on Julian Assange's situation.


    I feel that many of us here on Avalon have the understanding that there is real power in group meditation.
    Even the most unimaginable of positive changes can happen when intentions are joined together.

    Do not lose hope. Have faith in the good of humanity.

    Much light to all

    "When a certain number of people come together and they choose at a moment in time to create a precise emotion in their hearts, that emotion literally can intentionally influence the very fields that sustain the life on planet earth.

    The new shift in thinking is the gateway to human transformation. And because of the sheer number of people involved in this shift, and the growing magnitude of the crises that are driving us to change the way we think, we are standing on the threshold of hu
    man transformation at a level unlike anything ever before known on Earth."

    ~ Gregg Braden

    Scientific Evidence on the power of group meditation, prayer & intetion

    Quote Many people recognize personally, and research has demonstrated that collectively, meditation, prayer, and intention can and does affect the world.

    Below are some examples along with a very inspiring video that shares some remarkable insights.

    In 1993 a successful experiment was performed in Washington DC in America to demonstrate the effect of a large group of transcendental meditators on crime levels. Researchers predicted in advance that the calming influence of group meditation practice could reduce violent crime by over 20 percent in Washington, D.C., during an 8-week period in the summer of 1993.

    In fact, the findings later showed that the rate of violent crime decreased by 23 percent during the June 7 to July 30 experimental period. The odds of this result occurring by chance are less than 2 in 1 billion.

    This was a carefully controlled study. The demonstration project involved assembling in the D.C. area nearly 4,000 practitioners of Transcendental Meditation programs from 81 countries. The experiment was rigorously analyzed by a 27-member project review board composed of independent scientists and civic leaders who approved the research protocol and monitored the research process.

    The implications of this are exciting yet not surprising. Meditation does not just serve you; it serves your world, assisting in raising the overall frequency and consciousness level on the planet.

    Another long-term study is the Global Consciousness Project at Princeton University that tracked the impact of events on the generation of apparently random numbers. What they found is that a strong focus by the participants can create a very significant effect. The most powerful changes occurred when the collective attention is set on the most positive ideals like ‘love’, or ‘peace’.

    Some meditation intentions for helping Julian Assange:
    • Freedom for him and may the false charges against him be dropped
    • Support and healing from us and the public as he has been under major stress
    • True justice for his case (which he surely isn't going to get from the US the legal system)

    Feel free to add more to this list if you'd like to.

    Wind and I have a Twitter account [@EnergyHealersHR] with information on the Sunday meditation and having intentions for Julian Assange.
    If anyone here also uses Twitter, you can retweet and share it with your followers so more people who wish to send supportive healing intentions for Assange can join the meditation.

    It's great to see more positive intentions for Assange on the thread 'Pray, meditate for Julian Assange'.

    Perhaps this intention for Julian Assange can go for a few weeks, as we keep an eye on any updated news for his case.
