As many of you know I am a spiritual teacher and healer. I have been doing meditation my whole life. One way when I was young that I was doing meditation was by staring at a spot for a long period of time when I was 4 or 5 years old. Another was when 9 I learned transcendental meditation from my grade school teacher and a visulation method,a meditation that I modified and adapated many different ways later on. One was was that I learned to look at problems from different angles by imagining I was sitting on the bottom of a lake and my problems were just bubbles and as they slowly rose that I could look at and analyze these bubble problems from different angles which rose as quick or slow as I wanted them to. In the early 1990's I had a thirst to learn about spirituality and meditation and energy healing and about the chakras,basically I wanted to reach enlightenment. I ended up reading every book I could about enlightenment and meditation. I thought to use prayer and fasting as a tool to gain insight into the tombs that nightly piled around myself and my bed. I had worked in a hospital back then recently and had a very good repore with my "guides" or my "higher self" and gained knowledge on where to look for information that way by being open to the universe and found out it was sometimes more importiant in reading between the lines that what the author meant in some of the books that I was reading. But it wasn't just the books that I was reading to gain information, I was writing ideas down and writing poetry,searching for information within myself and journaling. I noticed as well that some books on psychology which I spent a few hour a day readying in a medical library that I had access to had the same type of ideas were in an arcane text or scripture and I saw patterns that I started to piece together. I lived in the Northeast United States in New England and in the early 1990's there weren't that many people at all talking about meditation or the chakras or enlightenment. The internet wasn't really a thing back then. It was by listening to my inner voice and listening to my higher self by prayer and fasting and my repeated efforts of doing meditation up to 4 hours a day and longer that I came up with a breathing meditation now called the Hamsa Breathing Meditation.
