Ringing of the Bells

In the hustle and bustle of the busy world I am often asked by people, what are the best ways to meditate and not get distracted? The answer rests more within what happens in the mental framework of meditation rather than outer influences.

 

Ringing of the Bells

The mind naturally races and forms multitudes of ideas throughout the day. It’s what it does naturally. Quieting the mind can be a challenge in itself and if we incorporate that specifically in our meditations it can challenge the success of the experience which in turn, can result in frustration or disappointment. So, especially for beginners, it can be fun to give the brain something to focus on that compliments its natural speed of processing through forms of stimulation to make the experience natural and easy.

One thing that can be a lot of fun is to incorporate sensory stimulation such as aromatherapy and visualizations that are auditory in nature.

One of the most effective auditory visualizations is to imagine bells or singing bowls playing while you meditate. Not only does this give your mind something to create and focus on but it also works in conjunction by assisting in raising or lowering ones electromagnetic vibration. The higher the tone, the faster your energy will move vibrationally as well as assist in higher vibrational emotional energies. The lower the tone, the slower your energy will move vibrationally. And especially if you’re focusing on Chakra work, visualizing the sound of different tones that correspond with each Chakra works great for effective energy work along with controlling the speed to which visuals are captured in the mind.

I like to include multiple things simultaneously such as working with Crystals, visualizing the bells or bowls and allow myself to connect with my guides and journey with them to see what they need to show me.

A simple visual could be to picture a cathedral or building in which large bells are chiming. Or even picturing an orchard of beautiful blossoming trees with wind chimes hanging from the branches. Hearing the bells, taking note of the time of year, the season, lighting and temperature adds to the experience.

What happens in the mind is reflected in the body. The brain naturally responds to stimulation and commands that the mind directs so even if it’s a meditation, the more real it feels, the more your brain will respond to the authenticity of it. Similar to how the Placebo affect works, when the mind believes it to be true, the brain says okay, and reacts accordingly. Knowing this gives us an amazing advantage with meditation and visualization and enhances our overall well being that can curb anxiety, depression and even how we handle ourselves in social situations.

Using the visualization of the bells can also work to retrain the brain on how to respond to stress. Stress contributes to many types of illness, disease and poor quality of life but meditation and visualization can become a very effective tool for stress management.

When you are in a stressful situation, especially with others in which dialogue is heated or frustrating, picture standing within the cathedral, orchard or place in which you can hear the bells. Create the visualization as strong as you need to and allow your spirit to be soothed by the vibration of the tones. Picture the tones like waves of energy that glow with soothing colors like green, blue or aqua and picture them enveloping you completely. Those tones act as a shield to destructive projections of negative emotional energies and works to help facilitate calm temperaments during debate or difficult conversations.

Both people will feel the effects of the visualization and those who are not willing to allow the negativity to relax will often flee or let go of the tension and move on to something else. Some will even leave the room altogether.

These types of meditations offer not only effective experiences of connecting with spirit guides or relaxation prior to bed, they offer tools of stress management that keep a balance in our everyday lives.
