Beat Energy-Sucking Stress with Beatle-Method-Mania

By numberslady8

So good to know that Paul Mccartney and Ringo Starr, the Fab Two – with good humor, upstage each other today just as they did when they were two of the ‘Fab Four.”   The two remaining Beatles performed at a Radio City Music Hall concert to fund their Transcendental Meditation charity for teaching the TM relaxation techniques to school children and if their youthful, enthusiastic, abilities are enhanced by their thirty plus years of TM practice, I’m off to learn to relax stressful tensions at will, and buy a meditation rug.

Back in the 1960′s, only the wealthy or those who cared little for money went to India to study as did the Beatles.  In the 60′s and 70′s the enlightened were meditating four times a day for twenty-five minutes and positioned, following the rotation of the earth.  Since the Beatles embraced TM, their encouragement and the changing times have brought many forms of meditation into conventional use.

 TM is one form of relaxation technique based in the joyful attitude of the Yogi founder of The International Meditation Society.  He found the Beatles or the Beatle found him…no matter.  The Beatles opened the door for Tai Chi learning and practice to ease Parkinson’s.  ”Mommy Meditation” for stressful juggling as taught by Dr. Malika Marshall.  Learning and practicing all forms of relaxation techniques – meditation techniques that focus on beautiful, colorful Indian mandalas, intricate, all over beige, Native American sand paintings and Silva Mind Control’s mentally visualizing a peaceful place of relaxation and counting from ten to one backwards repeating Emile Coue’s, “Every day, in every way, feeling better and better.” to return to face activity without stress, in the hectic pace of the material world. 

Even Barack Obama visited Fairfield, Iowa when electioneering…a town that drew 30,000 TM followers years ago and made his speech facing the sun – to the chagrin of media photographers – in keeping with the TM practice of following the earth’s rotation.  Today, positive motivators abound.  Be it sitting still with TM or listening to Louise Hay’s ‘How to Heal Your Life” tapes or checking your alpha rhythms with biorhythm machines in doctor’s offices…there’s a method that can be comfortable for everyone.

In these times of dwindling savings, home foreclosures and job loss – worry can put the best of genes to the test –  you might want to investigate meditation as the tool that sends your emotionally-induced, energy-sucking stress away and increases your ability to sort priorities appropriately and as a result, make practical choices.
