The only constant in the universe is change. This year, around the world, many of us have faced overwhelming changes to our careers, relationships, health, safety, and daily life. As we in the northern hemisphere enter the dark and cold winter months, we may face heightened fatigue, uncertainty, anxiety, depression, stress, and difficulty in decision making. In today's meditation, we bathe in our Divine inner light. We allow this inner light to heal us, and to guide us through the darkness of winter. Whatever darkness you face, simply let your light shine on it; let this light reveal your greatness, your divinity, your peace, and your next steps.

Not the city, but the nerve. The Vagus nerve is the nervous system's highway. Running the length of the spine, it is connected to all the organs in the body. It holds our body's responses to trauma, and plays a major role in how we deal with stress, anxiety, PTSD, and influences how we respond to perceived threats to our safety or well being. In today's meditation, we use deep breathing and intentional relaxation to soothe the Vagus nerve. The effect is usually a sense of deep calm.

I usually write a script for this intro, and I'm just going to keep it short this time. We are all going through a lot around the world, we are dealing with our personal lives, and our career or job experiences, and also a lot of fear and unknown about the economy, the political situation around the world. So today's meditation is a distance Reiki treatment. This podcast is made possible by our subscribers on Patreon. Join our community at Patreon.com/theMeditationPodcast

For many of us, daily life has changed dramatically. We are experiencing uncertainty, conflict, anxiety, stress, and a complete disruption of our social routines.

We are experiencing unprecedented times. How can we use this time to expand our awareness, evolve our compassion and kindness, and discern through our confusion?

My friend Daniel Pohnke died in May. He made a strong impact on my life, during a difficult time. Daniel also helped us get the podcast back on its feet, at a time when we had almost given up on it. Daniel was a world traveler, meditator, songwriter, musician, educator, facilitator, light worker, and coach. His enthusiasm for life was infectious. We release this episode of The Meditation Podcast in honor of Daniel, and in support of his wife and son. Daniel led me through this meditation five years ago, on an hours-long hike around Griffith Park in Los Angeles.

It is our human nature to seek love. We want to be seen, encouraged, celebrated. But the love that we receive from others is limited by our capacity to love ourselves. When we begin to accept, encourage, and celebrate ourselves, we become better able to give and receive those same feelings. In today's meditation, we practice the self-generated, healing light of unconditional love. The Meditation Podcast is made possible with great thanks to our Patreon subscribers.

The Three-part breath is a simple and ancient technique for reducing stress, anxiety, and emotional struggles. Traditionally it is used to regulate life energy, and to clear imbalances in the body mind and spirit. In yoga practices, it is also known as Dirga Pranayama, or Dirga Swasam Pranayama, or rebirthing. In today's meditation, we practice the three-part full breath.

As we enter a new year, and a new decade, we may find ourselves ready to change, to grow, to release the old and to claim the new. In today's meditation, we create new intentions for the new decade of 2020. The Meditation Podcast is made possible with great thanks to our Patreon subscribers.

Often the areas of greatest discomfort in our bodies are the areas that require the most attention. Our discomfort may be telling us to slow down, not to worry. It may hold trauma from old injuries, emotional wounds, or regret. One way to release our discomfort, whether physical or emotional, is to simply breathe into it. In today's meditation, we breathe into our discomfort. We give it our attention, our focus, and our breath. Finally, we invite ourselves to let it go.

Through meditation, we release tension and focus our minds inward. Through daily practice, we may face opportunities for deeper release, such as chronic tension or old injuries. When we experience fidgeting, difficulty focusing, difficult self-observations, areas of chronic pain or tension, etc., this may be a sign that we are ready for a deeper release. In today's meditation, we use a simple, self-generated vibration to help realign our subtle energy and to release any areas of tension or stuck-ness. Such releases may feel as simple as a gentle letting go. They may also include emotional release such as laughing, crying, trembling, shaking, or feeling hot or cold. Whatever feelings come up (or don't), our goal is to observe our thoughts and sensations while staying focused on the vibration.

When we meet someone who has 'found their purpose', what qualities do we notice? Do they seem to have mastered their craft or occupation? Do they seem joyful and content in their day to day lives? How do we find -- and live in -- our true purpose? Is it finding the right job, the right career? Is it becoming really 'good' at something? Or is it as simple as learning to remain present? In today's meditation, we attune ourselves to our deepest thoughts, needs, and desires to find our true purpose. By giving our full attention to this moment -- our breath, and our thoughts -- we open ourselves to the Universe to give us direction through our inner voice.

We all have the capacity to experience love, through both giving and receiving. But over time past hurts and mistrusts can close our hearts to fully experiencing love. We may carry a fear of being hurt again. In turn, we become selective in how much love we give, and how much love we allow ourselves to receive from others. Restricting our hearts in this way stifles our spiritual growth — and it can even affect the body, including the heart itself. In this meditation, we learn to open our hearts by removing any walls we may have built. This increases our capacity to give love openly, and receive love without conditions.

As we journey through our lives, our bodies experience many forms of stress -- including danger, grief, trauma, anger, and physical injury. When we don't process or release stress it remains inside our bodies, causing tension and restricted breath. Restricted breath in turn deprives the body and blood of oxygen, which can lead to hypertension, weight fluctuation, and all sorts of dis-ease. In today's meditation, we use our own breathing to cleanse our physical and emotional bodies. Using simple extension of the breath and release of the body through breath, we can significantly lower stress for a healthier life and a healthier state of mind.

We take on stress in many ways. Stress normally originates in a traumatic event or life-death situation. However, simple day-to-day events can also create stress, by triggering memories of trauma and fear. In today's meditation, we build our capacity to process and release stress. This meditation uses breath work and stillness, to increase awareness of our stress, its sources, and how to let it go.

We are spiritual beings, going through a human experience on this earth. Through this experience, we develop habits that may be detrimental to our spiritual, mental and physical well-being. Eventually, destructive habits become a normal part of our everyday, and we can lose sight of their long term effects. Examples of destructive habits include alcohol or drug abuse, compulsive eating, nail-biting, self mutilation, belligerence, or rage. We are not interested in judging 'good' or 'bad', but rather examining our own habits and whether they empower us or hold us back from our highest good. In today's meditation, we learn to release destructive habits, refreshing and renewing ourselves through the powerful energy of Infinite Love and Light.

The Meditation Podcast is made possible with great thanks to our subscribers on Patreon. Join our community at Patreon.com/theMeditationPodcast In our life journey, we all encounter pain, grief, and anger in various forms. Examples include physical or emotional trauma, ending relationships, death of loved ones, or betrayal by someone we trust. When we don't digest these feelings, they can build upon each other. This can lead us to fear and anxiety, and uncontrolled or unwanted outbursts of emotion. In the long term, we remain stuck in a cycle, repeating the same emotional experiences with new friends, colleagues, partners, or loved ones. In today's meditation, we access the deep subconscious to process pain, grief, or anger. Using simple techniques, we digest, release, and heal our experiences, and resolve stuck patterns. This allows us to create new and healthier subconscious patterns for present and future relationships.
Life often confronts us with turmoil, setbacks, bad news, or disappointments. This can occur in world events, our personal relationships, our home, and our careers. It is a natural response to feel and express anger, sadness, or fear. However, when these emotions overwhelm us we may find ourselves thrown off-balance, losing our ability to function or communicate effectively. In today's meditation, we practice staying calm in the middle of a storm. We learn how to express emotion, sympathy, and empathy, while still retaining our internal peace and effectiveness.

 Now, let's begin.
Do you ever just feel great? Balanced, confident, strong, yet relaxed? What if there was a way to cultivate feeling great? To massage our body, mind, and spirit? Through a simple visualization exercise? In today's meditation we cultivate our internal energy for physical healing, mental clarity, and emotional resolution. Based on ancient Chinese practices of qigong energy work, we build up our chi, then move it in a gentle cycle through our bodies. This creates a subtle, gentle, and very powerful healing effect that can balance and strengthen all the body's systems and functions.

We all need to reset regularly. When we become tired, uninspired, exhausted, or depressed, this may be a symptom of our need to restore ourselves, to recharge our drained energy. In today's meditation, we visit our Sacred Space to restore our body, mind, spirit, inspiration, and energy. By simply resting, while in a high vibrational state, we restore our ability to work efficiently, to rest fully, to function in a chaotic world, and to experience our daily lives with full presence and intention.

As we start the New Year, many of us seek wealth or prosperity: a raise, a new car, a bigger house. Our goals reflect the desire for more money, more things. However, when we seek material prosperity, it's easy to miss the prosperity we already have — such as our health, our friendships, and family. In today's meditation, we recognize our present prosperity in areas including — but not limited to — our financial and physical wealth. By acknowledging our current prosperity, we open the door for more blessings to come our way.
