What’s next? …,
For this to make maximum impact we each have to complete our own individual practice for minimum of 20 to 30 minutes seating quietly on a comfortable chair, a place where you will not be disturbed.
NOW LETS BEGIN OUR PRACTICE ..,
For members who find it difficult to concentrate or settle Our MIND to use:
Option 1 – Visualization technique is working with our most memorable place and to remember the thoughts of being at a peace with ourself. Now close our eyes imagine a place where there is water flowing over, creating a waterfall or imagine looking at the waves when you were at the seaside. Enjoy experiencing the movement, the sound of water, the fresh smell of the air and now connect to your breath, gradually direct your mind to listen to the sound of your breath as you inhale then exhale, feeling more relaxed, in both the body and the mind.
Option 2 – The breathing Technique : Sitting comfortably and closing our eyes. Take a few moments to “Simply BE”. Notice whatever is being experienced in the moment — sounds, physical sensations, thoughts, feelings — without trying to do anything about it. Continue like this for a while, allowing yourself to settle down.
Notice the small changes of the weather pattern around you, any finer sensation you feel is different, now bring the attention back to the breathe. Simply observe the breathe as it moves in and out, as the body inhales and exhales. Notice how the breathe moves in and out automatically, effortlessly. Don’t try to manipulate or force it in any way. Notice all the details of the experience of breathing — the sensing of the air moving in and out of the nose, the way the body moves as you breath.
The mind will wander away from the breathe — that’s fine, it doesn’t matter. That’s a part of the meditation! When you notice that you are no longer observing the breathe, it is the time to bring your attention back with minimum effort.
Let all of your experiences — thoughts, emotions, bodily sensations — come and go in the background of your awareness of the breathe. Notice how all of your experiences — thoughts, emotions, bodily sensations, awareness of sounds and smells — come automatically and effortlessly like the breathe, continue your practice sitting comfortably enjoying every moment of stillness and emptying of your mind.
As soon as you settle down with your breathe technique feeling calm and peaceful to gradually move effortlessly toward introducing a deeper visualization technique of seeing light, glowing from the top of the head around our heart slowly guiding – the colour of light being Blue around the lower body down to your toes. As you breathe in and out, gradually drawing your attention to see the colour changing to a warm golden-yellow light all around your body and when you are ready to start, to release this lovely healing glow, feel the sensation of the healing energy to move further away from your body, as you gift this positive energy, bringing to your mind anyone who would truly benefit from your practice.., members of the family, or friends. All this should be done without any effort, just relax, and enjoy the whole experiences of stillness & calm. You will notice that the time will go very quickly, 20 to 30 minutes will seem short. It will soon be time to come out of your meditation session, now Breathe in LOVE .., Breathe out JOY.., Smile from your heart, and continue sharing your warm healing energy. After completing your practice sit quietly take two to three minutes, to settle your mind, before continuing with your daily activities.
Congratulations!!!.., you have just completed your experience as a mediator now come join us with our journey last Sunday of each month..,
Mantra for each month to cultivate
PEACE HARMONY LOVE COMPASSION
“Meditation brings wisdom; lack of meditation leaves ignorance. Know well what leads you forward and what holds you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom”. – Buddha
Mentally. physically and emotionally we are the same. We each have the potential to good and bad and to be overcome by disturbing emotions such as anger, fear, hatred, suspicion and greed. These emotions can be the cause of many problems. On the other hand if you cultivate loving kindness, compassion and concern for others, there will be no room for anger, hatred and jealousy.
“In Prayer we ask a question.., In Meditation we receive the answer..,”
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi founder of the (TM) Transcendental Meditation
“Enjoy your life and be happy.
Being happy is of the utmost importance.
Success in anything is through happiness. More support of nature comes from being happy.
Under all circumstances be happy, even if you have to force it a bit to change some long-standing habits.
Just think of any negativity that comes to you as a raindrop falling into the ocean of your bliss.
You may not always have an ocean of bliss, but think that way anyway and it will help it come.
Doubting is not blissful and does not create happiness.
Be happy, healthy, and let all that love flow through your heart.”
Sunil Vilas England, UK – Founder
”Daily Meditation is a simple technique to quiet our busy MIND and bring Peace to our daily LIFE”
Welcome to our monthly updates and news on World Meditation for Peace & Healing that began in August 2013. Today recognized as a way to bring together our GICAS global family to help focus our joint efforts, to spread more Peace and Healing around the World.
This is wonderful way we can all make a differences, each member joining us to completing their own practice is also rewarded by an increase in creativity, same time develop our GLOBAL ACTION .., where the possibilities are ENDLESS?
STILLNESS IS WHERE CREATIVITY AND SOLUTIONS TO PROBLEMS ARE FOUND..,
My personal journey into meditation began in 1979 with (TM) Transcendental Meditation, during the time when UK based Maharishi Foundation was first setup as the headquarter and research into TM at Mentmore Towers. It continues to enhance my lifestyle with diligent practice every morning and evening for 20 minutes being able to quiet the busy MIND, and in 2010 progress to (Siddhi program) an advance technique of meditation. Whereby every Sunday I completed a longer 3 hour practice remaining in a deep state of blissful meditation, enabling me to share with you all the positive energy of Peace & healing. Over time hoping to see the flow of improvement in the Health & Well-being, of our global families and friends.
I take this opportunity to Congratulate you all for our GLOBAL ACHIEVEMENTS!!!.., And welcome all NEW members joining us this Month to continue our journey.”

TO SEE; TO HEAR; TO TOUCH; TO TASTE, TO SMELL ….,, EXHALE FEEL; THE LAUGH; AND LOVE FROM OUR HEART…, SHARE THIS PLEASANT EXPERIENCES WITH ALL OUR GLOBAL FAMILY..,
Tiny drops dropping down
Making soft sound on soil soft
Spreading sweet fragrant
Touching soul inside
Giving peace to heart and mind
Hither and thither moved the blades of grass
Dancing as a pair of youth
Leaves of one branch hugging others’
As in tango they are
Jumped out my heart
Of the cage of bones
Joined nature in her dancing
I sang with the songs of sparrows
Danced with boughs
Up and down moved my soul
Twigs opened so did my arms
Serenity inside, pleasure all around
Gave the month of February
Her bless, the start of spring
When all feel young, all feel alive
INHALE LOVE AND EXHALE GRATITUDE .., KINDNESS & FRIENDSHIP TO ALL OUR GLOBAL FAMILY..,
Our month of FEBRUARY in the MEDITATION LOUNGE
PEACE…, PEACE AND PEACE…, GOOD MORNING
“WHEN WE HAVE PEACE IN OUR HEARTS AND MINDS IS WHEN WE CAN DRAW PEACE INTO OUR LIVES”…,
HAPPY FEBRUARY MEDITATION
If you feel overwhelmed, take a deep breath. It will calm you and release the tensions.
If you are worried about something coming up, or caught up in something that already happened, simply take a deep breathe. It will bring you back to the present.
If you are moving too fast, breathe. It will remind you to slow down, and enjoy life more.
At all times Live in the PRESENT, not PAST or FUTURE. Breathe in LOVE., Breathe out PEACE & GRATITUDE.., enjoy each Moment of this LIFE.
