Meditation Music from “Maok”

Just as I was loosing all my hopes for Slovakian music scene (anybody who has ever seen DJ Rytmus would be on the same page) … I found Maok! (My hopes for Czech music scene are long gone)

You can find a lot of amazing music on their website http://maok.net/ including some downloads here http://maok.net/category/hudba-na-stiahnutie/ (second one from top is absolutely astonishing concert in a church)

The song that is attached to this post is called “Liecenie” which means “Healing” but I found most of Maok music literally soul-mending.

Hope you will enjoy this hidden gem of introspection music. 😉 Continue reading

What 7 of cups teaches us about commitment phobia.

In Rider-Waite  Tarot system the 7 of cups card represents a person standing in front of 7 cups filled with various desirable objects. The cups look almost identical and they are not grounded but floating in the air. In a sense they are actually out of reach of the person standing in front of them but still within his sight. The very simplified meaning of the cards is to have more choices then one or building a flying castles.

I would like to focus on the “more choice” side of the archetype. Friend of mine recently told me she is feeling like she has to discover all things that are here, don’t really wont to commit to one thing because  she would feel like she is missing something..and I was thinking.. “missing what?”

Of course, when your life is consisting of repetitive stereotypes only that is a very troublesome BUT are you actually missing something by staying all the time at position 0? (yes, I am talking about Fool card) Isn’t that stagnation in the very same fashion?

As I believe the principles of life are universal and range from quantum physics to you having bad day. There is just one “Life”, one and only archetype that includes everything. In the light of this fact actually makes more sense WHERE exactly are you on your journey more then what are you following because it works on same principle.

It is like starting with a stamp collection…and then a coins collection… Different cups, but still the same experience of starting over and over again. Just like the cups on the 7 of cups card: identical and floating in the air, unless you go all the way down on your collector journey and turn it into real experience, then it doesn’t matter what are you collecting.

I used the “collector” metaphor to make the idea more “edible” but this can seemingly apply to other interests or even relationships in our life.

So I would say don’t be scared to get into some “heavy shit”. Yes, it can be a disaster, yes it can be painful and you might have to face your worst fears but  as at the end of the day you only benefit from it. 😉

Are people with Psychic abilities actually good for something?

Oh well, it seems like most of my post are triggered by me hearing something I generally disagree on and I use my blog as a hostage to make a point… oh well..what can you do…

This one was triggered by a friend who were astonished by a psychic able to tell him details from his childhood without knowing much about him. Even though I generally feel this IS impressive however in terms of actual benefit of this for a human life… eh.. not so much.

I am not saying this abilities does not exist. They do. But all this mind reading, moving objects with mind..so on and so on, it is not having a greater impact on others life then a circus magician show.

You feel amazed. You feel surprised and the worst part is you feel there is a proof for existence of something higher. Proof that comes not from light that you feel within yourself but from an external comedian.

It is like giving a thirsty person a cup of vine and tell him you are the only one who can give to him while he is standing in crystal clear water all the time, just unaware of it.

While I do believe Tarot is different as it is great tool that can truly help with understanding archetypes around you, I more impressed with people who got “light”, happiness and understanding inside them as for me those people are actual proof of higher principal existence. More then any mind reading, past life kinetic magician.

“Procrastinator Eradicator” sound meditation

As many of us (yes, I count you to this group too as the fact that you are reading this post means there is something more important you should be doing ..and obviously you are not) we have problem with new sickness that came with the internet times : procrastination.

Thankfully, the technology which cause this (internet) also comes with a solution. Procrastinator Eradicator is great alpha sound meditation that  will  “entrain your mind to 10Hz; a relaxed, but focused state”

Great sound to listen with reading or general working on computer. Definately use the headphones to fully enjoy it and dont forget to stay hydrated and drink at least 2 liters of clean water a day.

“Tea and Tarot” ritual

Today I would like to talk/write about the importance of intuition developing rituals. This apply to both tarot readers and tarot untouched individuals for whom are strongly recommend to get some appealing tarot deck even if it will be just for purposes described further on.

As there is a day and night forming together a great partners, our logical and down-to-earth thinking makes great partner with illogical intuition. Only by combining those two together is possible to perceive the life in its fullest truthful state.We are living in times where intuition and spirituality is very underestimated. This might lead to lack of balance within us and creating a false perception about our lives and priorities.

So that’s why I came up with the idea for “Tea and Tarot” ritual that may help to restore the intuition and ultimately the balance with your mind.

All you need is:

  • Tea of choice (my personal favorite is mint tea or any tea without caffeine)
  • Some snuggling device like armchair
  • Silence or sound meditation
  • Deck of Tarot cards
  • Pen and paper

Now all you need to do is to make a tea, feel comfy and shuffle the cards. Pick one. Stare. Stare. Stare. Let the imagination flowing slowly. Stare. Gaze. Now take the paper and start to write down keywords, stories, sentences what ever comes to your mind. Don’t stop until the paper is full of notes!

Don’t be afraid that it is embarrassing or it doesn’t make sense. If you feel like writing “Fart” 10 times do it.

Repeat this ritual every now and then or “when it feels like it”.

This exercise will inevitably help your intuition and reconnection with your subconscious.
