  • Music Makes Meditation Sessions More Effective

    musicSometimes, you need a little time for yourself and take a break from all the stresses that life throws at you. In these busy times, however, a lot of people find it difficult to take time off from work and create a sense of balance in their lives.

    If you find yourself stressed and on the brink of burnout, consider doing meditation. Regular meditation sessions can greatly reduce feelings of stress by surrounding you with an atmosphere of serenity. For best results, make it a part of your daily life.

    Meditation is very easy to practice. You just need to set aside a few minutes a day and find a quiet spot to meditate in.

    There are a lot of things you can do to enhance your meditation experience. Listening to music is one of them. Some people find it peaceful and calming to listen to music. A lot of people, however, believe that it’s not possible to meditate while listening to music. This is one of the most common misconceptions about meditation. In fact, listening to music, on its own, can be seen as a form of meditation.

    Studies have shown positive benefits when listening to relaxing music while meditating. It helps quiet the mind and put you in a peaceful mood. It creates a calmer environment that makes meditation practice more effective. When the mind and body are relaxed, meditating becomes a more enjoyable and more fulfilling experience.

    Music is a personal choice. Stay open to the possibility that you can achieve deeper states by listening to whatever kind of music you choose. You will only be able to achieve mindfulness when you enjoy the music you’re listening to.

    If you haven’t tried this yet, then you’re missing out on the magical combination of music and meditation. Try to put on some relaxing new age, meditation music, binaural beats or any type of music you want, and see how it affects your meditative state. If you enjoy a certain type of music, then by all means, practice with it.

  • The Legend of Kuan Yin, Goddess of Mercy

    kuan_yinKuan Yin, commonly known as the Goddess of Mercy, embodies the flame of mercy and compassion. In Eastern mythology, her name means “regarder of sounds”, indicating her ability to listen to the prayers and the cries of the people. Her heart is full of deep compassion and unconditional love.

    Kuan Yin is depicted in many forms, but she is often represented as a beautiful woman in white silk robe with a water jar and a willow branch in her hands. She is a well-known deity, not only in China, but also in countries with numerous Buddhism followers like Malaysia, Japan and Korea. She is one of the most universally beloved and one of the most popular deities of Buddhism.

    Kuan Yin’s role as Buddhist Madonna has been compared to that of Mother Mary. In addition, her names are as numerous as those with Mother Mary. To the people of China, her name is Guanyin. In Korea, she is known as Kannon. Some Taoist scriptures give her the title of Guan Yin Da Shi. Some of you have probably heard of her as Miao Shan, the Chinese princess known for her great compassion. As expected, there are also a myriad of varying stories to tell about Kuan Yin.

    One of the several stories surrounding Kuan Yin is that she chose to remain on Earth to relieve the sufferings of humanity. She was destined to become a Buddha, and has earned the right to leave the world of suffering. But out of compassion for the suffering of others, she turned back when she heard the anguished cries rising from the world. She chose to forego the final state of Buddhahood to help others attain enlightenment.

    Sometimes, Kuan Yin is depicted with a thousand arms and 11 heads. According to the legend, Kuan Yin vowed never to rest until she has freed all sentient beings from sufferings. Realizing how difficult it would be for her to fulfil this goal, Amitabha Buddha gave her 11 heads so it would be easier for her to hear the people’s pleas for help. She was also given a thousand arms to allow here to reach out to all those who needed aid.

  • Largest, Brightest Supermoon to Grace Earth’s Skies on Nov. 14

    supermoon-nov-14What is a supermoon?

    The term supermoon is used to describe a moon that appears larger and brighter than usual. It occurs when the moon is at its closest point of approach in its orbit around Earth.

    There are a total 3 supermoons for 2016. The first one already appeared on October 24. The next one is set to rise on November 14, and the last one will rise on Dec. 14.

    If we are to see 3 supermoons in a row this year, some of you might be wondering what makes the November 14 supermoon so special. The supermoon that is set to rise on the 14th of November is not only the biggest and brightest supermoon of the year, it will also be exceptionally close.

    It will be the closest full moon to grace the Earth’s skies since 1948, promising sky-watchers a celestial supermoon spectacle. According to a statement from NASA, it won’t come this close again until 2034. So go ahead and gaze at it or take some photos.

    As long as the sky is clear of clouds, the supermoon is expected to be 30% brighter and 14% larger than an average full moon.

    Wondering when to catch a glimpse? Don’t worry, we got you covered.

    If you live in America, keep an eye out for this full moon on the night of November 13. For those who live in Australia and Asia, the best time to enjoy the supermoon is during the evening hours of November 14. In western North America and on many Pacific islands, the moon turns precisely full in the morning hours before sunrise in November 14. Or better yet, just look both nights.

    No matter where you are in the world, seeing a big, bright full moon is an incredible experience. It will be a sight to behold, so go out and enjoy it.

  • Choosing a Tarot Deck That’s Right for You

    Tarot DeckWe live in world of options. Unlike the good old days when television only received 3 networks and ice cream was only available in 2 flavors, we are now given the chance to choose from a variety of options. For instance, some ice cream parlors offer more than 30 flavors. We also get to choose from about 200 channels. Today, the same can also be said about tarot cards.

    Metaphysical shops usually carry more than a dozen decks of tarot cards. While this gives consumers the freedom to choose, it usually creates confusion. This is especially true for those who are considering getting their first deck of tarot cards.

    So how do you choose a tarot deck that’s right for you? Here are some tips.

    Consider your experience level

    If you are new to tarot, we suggest that you start with the Rider Waite. It is one of the easiest decks to work with. The images are straightforward and it’s easy to understand. Plus, you won’t have a hard time finding books and information for this deck.

    Explore the imagery

    Do you prefer classic, traditional, medieval style imagery? Or do you want to go with more modern decks? Go through the cards and take a good look at each of them. Are you drawn to the images? It has to be pleasing to the eye and suit your personality. Never pick a card that strikes you as boring, unpleasant or odd.

    Look for a connection

    Your friend may have recommended the Rider Waite, but if you don’t feel a connection with the card, then it’s not the right one for you. Find a deck that speaks to you. If a certain deck calls out to you, go with that one.

    Since you’ll be spending a lot of time with your cards, choose a deck that makes you feel comfortable and secure.

    Consider the quality

    If you are planning to use the card on a regular basis, we advise that you invest on a deck that is of good quality. This way, you can ensure that you can continue using them in the future without getting damaged or tearing easily.
