One person recently asked me, "Why do I get extreme tingling in my face and fingers when meditating?"The fact is, it is not uncommon for a wide variety of sensations and reactions to occur when we meditate. It's not the meditation that caused it. It's the meditation that allowed this buried feeling/trauma/pain to come to the surface and start to heal.No matter what comes up in meditation, allow it to be without any negative feelings about it. What happens when we do this is we train our mind to accept without negativity whatever is happening in the present moment. This is how the practice of meditation is the practice of life. Differing sensations will come and go. Simply watch them come and let them go. In this episode, Todd talks how to do just that.Please enjoy other episodes where Todd shares meditation techniques, tips and spiritual lessons from around the world for peaceful and stress-free living.

The future is coming at us fast. If we look at the trend of where technology is headed, we can see robotics and software becoming smarter, faster, and smaller. In many ways, computers are smarter than humans, but a computer still can't design a computer better than humans can. They lack the creativity and the conscious awareness that humans have. So, if the seemingly inevitable merger of humans and machines does take place, will ai be able to expand our consciousness? Is the merging good or bad? Will it make us more human, or less human? And ultimately, will it be a tool to further our spiritual journey or will it prevent spiritual progress? The answer may surprise you.Please enjoy other episodes where Todd shares meditation techniques, tips and spiritual lessons from around the world for peaceful and stress-free living.

How to Fight Jealousy

How to Fight Jealousy

2022-05-2309:46

Jealousy can be one of our most insidious emotions that can end lifelong relationships. Instead of feeling happy for others' success, we feel negative emotions for which we put up walls so as not to feel it, but really we're just closing ourselves in and blocking everyone else out. We can't fight our subconscious emotions because they are a part of us. But, we can use higher self, our conscious awareness, to work with our negative feelings and transform them into positive ones. In this episode I'll explain how to do just that.Please enjoy other episodes where Todd shares meditation techniques, tips and spiritual lessons from around the world for peaceful and stress-free living.

Most of us have a voice in our head that constantly searches for something to obsess about. It scavenges and scavenges endlessly. There is just no seeming endpoint for this thought-chaser. No matter what happens, our mind will try to label, judge and analyze it forever and ever.  Why won't our minds just do what they're told?!This inner voice disrupts our inner peace and usually creates problems where none existed before. So how do we turn it off? How can use our minds more efficiently and more peaceful? And how can we stop our minds from fixating on negative things? I'll talk about that and more in today's podcast.Please enjoy other episodes where Todd shares meditation techniques, tips and spiritual lessons from around the world for peaceful and stress-free living.

When we meditate, where is the best place to put our focus? Within or out? This is a common question and the answer isn't as simple as one or the other. Mindfulness is about becoming aware of both. But if that's the case, how do we divide up our attention between the two?Sometimes we can be so lost in our mind that we are completely unaware of our surroundings. Other times, we can be so busy in our activities that our mental and physical health can suffer. So where should we put our attention? In this episode, I share the answer to this important question and the key to raising our awareness both within and out. Please enjoy other episodes where Todd shares meditation techniques, tips and spiritual lessons from around the world for peaceful and stress-free living.

Meditation can often look like doing nothing, but that can't be further from the truth. Meditation is very active. It is the act of being between highly alert and highly relaxed. Being between these two states trains our mind and body to later do all the things we do when we interact with the world around us, and yet remain in a very peaceful state.Meditation is the literal training of our mind to be focused, patient, highly aware and highly peaceful. It trains our mind to tap into the inner peace and joy within. While it is not a placebo, placebos are actually a very powerful tool we can all use in our lives. Placebos are why a sugar pill can cure someone of their cancer. Simply believing something is helpful does make it so.In this episode, I'll share the truth about meditation, and how we can use the placebo effect to our advantage and to improve our daily lives.Please enjoy other episodes where Todd shares meditation techniques, tips and spiritual lessons from around the world for peaceful and stress-free living.

Being in pain can make doing the things we need to do feel almost impossible. When we're in pain, we're not thinking clearly.

So how do we meditate in pain?Recent scientific studies have shown that meditation can actually lesson our experience of pain! And so often, it is our resistance, fear and mental turmoil that is often worse than the physical pain itself. And this mental distress can also make the pain feel amplified. In this episode, I'll share how to meditate when we're in pain, why the clarity that comes from meditation can lesson our pain, and how meditation can even help the body heal faster!Please enjoy other episodes where Todd shares meditation techniques, tips and spiritual lessons from around the world for peaceful and stress-free living.

Today's question is really about using meditation for insights.  Can meditation work to see a problem wholistically?

No matter what it is we put our effort into, we naturally want to see some results. And so the question really is,  "How long do you have to meditate to see results?" Meditation is much like working out, in that the more effort you put in the more results you will see. However, as you'll hear in this podcast, there are some important things to remember when looking at minimums, maximums, and optimums.Please enjoy other episodes where Todd shares meditation techniques, tips and spiritual lessons from around the world for peaceful and stress-free living.

Today, Todd talks about whether or not we can meditate while focusing on nothing. The thing is, being unfocused is just our normal state of mind. We typically go about our days just responding to whatever we perceive and whatever thought pops into our head. We are a slave to our impulses. Learning to focus, by practicing focus, is taking control of our mind. It's using your intentions to guide your attention, not reacting unconsciously to every shiny thing that steals your focus. Hear more about how to focus, and unfocus, in meditation and in life in today's podcast.Please enjoy other episodes where Todd shares meditation techniques, tips and spiritual lessons from around the world for peaceful and stress-free living.

Sometimes, when we first start meditating, sadness and other extreme emotions may feel like they're being stirred up. But, these emotions aren't created by meditation, they are revealed by meditation. Most of our lives are spent distracted. We're always so busy doing, we don't pay any real attention to our inner world.In this episode, Todd goes into why these emotions come up in meditation, how we can process what comes up in meditation, and why they are A-OK. Because they, like all phenomenon, are only temporary. And only by looking at them, healing from them, and processing them, can we move on to releasing them.Please enjoy other episodes where Todd shares meditation techniques, tips and spiritual lessons from around the world for peaceful and stress-free living.
