I have been studying meditation for as long as I can remember. As a child I remember reading a number of books I found around the house on self-hypnosis which seemed to have been some of my first exposures. I was intrigued by this topic since it seemed to me that we have much more potential than we are aware of. Over the course of many years I took classes and studied different meditation techniques to the tune of a few thousand different techniques and methods. I used much of what I had learned in my professional career to solve problems and design new products. I also used many in my personal life to reduce stress and to generally expand my creativity. The value of meditation cannot be over emphasized.
I was recently asked to contribute content to a book which explains how our current society has an epidemic going on in a five main areas: Toxicity, Obesity, Deficiency, Stress and Inflammation called the TODSI syndrome. The way to cope with these five areas is called the TODSI Protocol, pronounced TOE-DOE-SEE, as defined by Peter Greenlaw. Peter is the author of the book “Why Diets Are Failing Us!: And What You Can Do To Get Healthy Now.” Peter’s latest book due out shortly is on the TDOSI Syndrome and the TDOSI Protocol. My contribution to the book is in the area of stress management and the benefits of some kind of meditation practice. The part of the TODSI Protocol that deals with Stress.
Stress is found in all aspects of our lives. It is not necessary a bad thing but out of control it can be devastating. We find stress can build up from things like but certainly not limited to:
- Working conditions
- Not getting recognition for the work we do.
- Being in a High performance job.
- Need a sense of purpose.
- Personal life
- Social demands
- Ways of coping with stress
There are many ways to handle and cope with stress. A very effective way to deal with stress is with Meditation. In simple terms meditation is a way to relax the body by relaxing the mind. In a little more technical terms Meditation can be defined as consciously altering ones brain frequency. Altering ones brain frequency is the key to all meditation and is described in many religious teaching with a clear meaning, if you know how to interpret it. I go into this in more detail in my videos.
