All about the practice of sat kriya, tips, tricks, how to and more
I’ve been doing Sat Kriya daily for several years now and it’s amazing how you intuitively learn little things from the meditation and the changes that you go through. When I first started, my right arm would fall asleep and I’d sweat like hell. When I got up to 31 minutes my legs would fall asleep pretty bad, even with a big pillow between my legs, but eventually the legs got stronger and even if they fell asleep a little it wasn’t so bad. Here are some tips and pointers from my experience… **Always Tune In with the Adi Mantra 3 times before beginning any Kundalini Yoga Kriya or Meditation. How To Do It: Finishing: At the end, inhale completely and hold, squeezing the root lock and the muscles of the back and shoulders for as long as you can. Time: 3 minutes up to 62 minutes. *One option is to practice for 3 minutes, rest for two minutes and repeat two more times for a 15 minute exercise, which will build stamina and a foundation for longer practice.

The Complete Guide to Organizing Your Contacts + Building Quality Relationships As a result, we’ll need some help if we’re going to build a large, authentic, and productive network of friends and colleagues. Luckily, thanks to smart phones, social networks, email clients, and calendars, we can quickly “catch up” with long lost connections even when not there in person. But the web is filled with tons of options when it comes to getting your digital rolodex organized. Below, we’ll take a look at some of the best resources and projects that turn a jumbled assortment of contacts into an essential career tool. A note: the downside of “optimizing” your contacts is that every service treats the people you know as data. This is why I don’t recommend any automatic emailing tools or one-size-fits-all templates. Before you do anything, pick your universe. The first step of the process is the most stressful: you’ll need to pick your contacts “universe.” What’s important is that you have a “master” contact file in either of the above services. Whipping Your Contacts Into Shape

Quick Tip: Reset Android default apps One of the questions I get a lot is how to reset default apps in the Android platform. This need can come about after trying out a new application, only to find you like the app but do not want it to serve as your default. A perfect example of this is web browsers. Many users will install multiple browser to fill a need that isn't met by the default. That doesn't mean they want the new browser to server as the default browser -- they simply want to use the newly installed browsers for specific sites. However, what happens when you install that new browser and accidentally accept it as the default, pressing Always instead of Just once (Figure A)? Figure A Selecting the default browser on a Verizon-branded Samsung Galaxy S4. If you've selected a default and want to clear that, the process is actually quite simple. When you've set a default, here's how you clear it: Figure B If you tap Clear data, all settings will be removed from that particular app.

Binaural Beats: A Meditative Gateway to Altered States of Consciousness By Polly Anne Rice Guest Writer for Wake Up World Many people struggle on their path to meditative states of consciousness, becoming downtrodden when their minds refuse to obey the orders to be silent and blank. For years, I grappled with these rules I believed surrounded meditation which kept me from achieving the insight I was seeking. Eventually, I came to understand it wasn’t always an empty mind that was necessarily the effective component for growth and expansion in my meditations, but the peaceful, uncontrolled viewing of the visualizations that ebbed and flowed through my mind. Binaural beats are a variation of brainwave entrainment, creating an oscillation effect between the frequencies flowing into each ear and the frequency resonated in the brain. Two different frequencies stream into the ears of an individual, preferably wearing headphones, creating a binaural beat within the brain. Effects of Binaural Beats Hemisphere synchronicity has profound implications! Article sources:

Sometimes hundreds of hours of footage are captured, and we only end up seeing around two hours of it. It’s also a language that has rules. When done badly it can cause boredom or, even worse, confusion. The importance of editing cannot be underestimated. According to acclaimed film writers David Bordwell and Kristin Thompson, the typical Hollywood film has between 1000 and 2000 shots that have been cut together. This article has been written in the hope of inspiring you to return to some of your own favorite scenes, in your own favorite films, so that you can deconstruct and analyze how the film’s editing has helped to engineer a perfect cinematic moment. 1.

Sound Healing: The Power of Sound (Binaural Beats Meditation Included!) By Peter Paul Parker Guest Writer for Wake Up World In the beginning was the word and the word was God. The Hebrew translation for word can also been interpreted as sound. Back in the 1960’s Swiss scientist Dr. Jonathan Reid is another Cymatic researcher, who is a musician and a scientist. Pythagoras and Sound Healing Pythagoras has been credited as being the Father of Mathematics, Geometry and Music. The Fibonacci Sequence is evident in nature. The Fibonacci series of numbers can be found everywhere in nature, and are looked upon as the building blocks of life. The Fibonacci series starts at the beginning, which is zero, and then the next number is 1. The Fibonacci series gives perfect balance in growth and movement, so therefore you get a balanced expansion. Tuning Your Chakras Another researcher into Sound healing is Jonathan Goldman. In modern life today we are being detuned from that field and we all need to find ways to tune us back up. Binaural Beats and the Fibonacci Sequence

FLaTTs *FINAL* by mistrjosh on DeviantArt 14 Brilliant Films You Can Watch in the Time It Takes to Eat Lunch You might have noticed that movies are getting longer these days. A typical Hollywood blockbuster now runs well over two hours, and who has time for all that? On the other hand, a well-made short film offers all of the same pleasures — story, spectacle, heart — and requires less of a time commitment. Plus, unlike with a Hollywood film, there is no formula for what a short film should be, meaning shorts are often richer in both creativity and originality. In honor of short films, and more enriching lunch breaks, we've compiled some of the best under 15-minute movies. Who says your lunch break needs to be spent staring at your inbox?

The Effortless Presence - Active Meditation vs. True Meditation 25th March 2015 By Frank M. Wanderer Ph.D Guest Writer for Wake Up World The Nature of Active Meditation Living in an isolated state of consciousness, based upon your identification with your illusionary self, you may find that spatial consciousness is not present in your life, so you are unable to experience Consciousness free of forms. You may have read or heard somewhere that meditation is the best method to that end, so you have begun to meditate diligently. Meditation is therefore something that you perform yourself. You start to practice meditation as an individual self, as an Ego. Meditation therefore does not bring you the lasting peace you have been longing for and the peace independent of your mind that reinforces your existence in the world. The Nature of Real Meditation Your attempts at meditation are futile because real meditation is, by nature, effortless. The spatial awareness thus acquired remains with you after meditation, for longer and longer periods of time. Frank M.
