How To Meditate WITHOUT Apps like Calm.com and Headspace

My brain is crazy.

It talks to me all the time. From the moment I wake up to the time I go to sleep it’s talking.

This is good in a way, because having an overactive brain allows me to come up with tons of creative ideas, songs, music and designs.

But it can also be a problem because it never shuts up and sometimes doesn’t have very nice things to say.

I used to drink and do drugs a lot to quiet my mind – but after many years it caused so many problems that I had to look for other ways. One of them is Meditation.

I’ve meditated off and on for the last 5-6 years now. Sometimes I meditate every day and sometimes I don’t do it for months. But it works. And it’s much easier to do than most people believe.

In this video I’ll show you how I use meditation, share some resources and talk about why paying for Transcendental Meditation classes and subscription based iPhone apps might not be the best way to go.

Enjoy,

Malan

BTW – I’m experimenting with doing videos instead of writing things out here on the blog. The last video I did got more feedback than almost any other post I’ve ever done, so it looks like it could be good.

I explain it all here, using my new microphone.

    The mic sounds really good.

    Love your personality on your videos and periscope. I think you could really take it to a syndicated show.

    I love how your approach to life is variety. You meditate some. You drink coffee from a straw. You play guitar (or you don’t). No guilt. Just loving life.

    It’s fun to watch.

    I wrote the post about TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) which you probably deleted.
    One thing which I didn’t say is that blockages of meridians are affecting psychological state.

    For example, spleen in TCM – “The Spleen (earth) is related to worry and overthinking. The Spleen controls the Yi, or our intellect. The Yi and Spleen are damaged by overthinking, just as muscles in your body will be damaged if you over-exercise. Frequently we see college and graduate students come into our clinic complaining of symptoms that we relate to a deficiency of the Spleen energy, such as fatigue, digestive upset, weakness in the limbs, and difficulty turning off their mind at night. Worrying also damages the Spleen – over worrying (which is similar to over-thinking) can cause similar problems. Likewise, once the Spleen is weakened, we are more prone to overthinking things and worrying about them too much. “

      The 1st post went to spam because it linked to your FB profile. (Disqus rules) Anyway, thanks for the info
