Transpersonal Meditation - Guided Meditation mp3 and Visualization Download
(Direct Download: 41 minute mp3 audio program)
Psychologist, Carl Jung, first used the phrase transpersonal unconscious as another way to describe the theory of the collective unconscious (the shared, intuitive knowledge shared by human beings). The term transpersonal means going beyond or transcending the bounds of ego. It can describe a state of oneness or nothingness as in the absence of preconception or senses.
Often, individuals who have these experiences recount that the experience was simply and profoundly beyond words as language serves only to limit an experience that is timeless, spaceless, and outside of ego function (the perception of the personal "I"). That was their experience, and whatever is waiting to happen next for you will be your when you listen to this meditation mp3 / visualization mp3.
The term chakra is Sanskrit word that translates into "wheel". The concept of chakras traces its earliest heritage back to the later Upanishads (Hindu texts estimated to be written during the middle of the first millennium BCE). A chakra is considered to be a center of activity that receives and expresses life force energy. From a scientific perspective, a chakra is a center of bioenergetic activity emanating from the major nerve ganglia branching forward from the spinal column.
Paying attention to the various chakra centers will serve as a filter for you to bring awareness to various elements of your humanity that more often than not are largely outside of conscious awareness.
Muladhara or root chakra is related to instinct, security, survival and basic human potentiality. This centre is located in the region between the genitals and the anus. Key issues involve sexuality, lust and obsession. Physically, Muladhara governs sexuality, mentally it governs stability, emotionally it governs sensuality, and spiritually it governs a sense of security.
Swadhisthana or sacral chakra is considered to correspond to the testes or the ovaries that produce the various sex hormones involved in the reproductive cycle. The key issues involving Svadisthana are relationships, violence, addictions, basic emotional needs, and pleasure. Physically, Svadisthana governs reproduction, mentally it governs creativity, emotionally it governs joy, and spiritually it governs enthusiasm.
Manipura or solar plexus chakra is related to the metabolic and digestive systems. Key issues governed by Manipura are issues of personal power, fear, anxiety, opinion-formation, introversion, and transition from simple or base emotions to complex. Physically, Manipura governs digestion, mentally it governs personal power, emotionally it governs expansiveness, and spiritually, all matters of growth.
Anahata or heart chakrais related to the thymus, located in the chest. The thymus is an element of the immune system as well as being part of the endocrine system. Key issues involving Anahata involve complex emotions, compassion, tenderness, unconditional love, equilibrium, rejection and well-being. Physically Anahata governs circulation, emotionally it governs unconditional love for the self and others, mentally it governs passion, and spiritually it governs devotion.
Vishuddha or throat chakra may be understood as relating to communication and growth through expression. This chakra is paralleled to the thyroid, a gland that is also in the throat and which produces thyroid hormone, responsible for growth and maturation. It governs such issues as self-expression and communication, as discussed above. Physically, Vishuddha governs communication, emotionally it governs independence, mentally it governs fluent thought, and spiritually, it governs a sense of security.
Ajna or third eye chakra is linked to the pineal gland which may inform a model of its envisioning. The pineal gland is a light sensitive gland that produces the hormone melatonin which regulates sleep and waking up. Ajna's key issues involve balancing the higher & lower selves and trusting inner guidance. Ajna's inner aspect relates to the access of intuition. Mentally, Ajna deals with visual consciousness. Emotionally, Ajna deals with clarity on an intuitive level
Sahasrara or crown chakra is generally considered to be the chakra of pure consciousness. Its role may be envisioned somewhat similarly to that of the pituitary gland, which secretes hormones to communicate to the rest of the endocrine system and also connects to the central nervous system via the hypothalamus. The thalamus is thought to have a key role in the physical basis of consciousness. It involves such issues as inner wisdom and the death of the body. Sahasrara's inner aspect deals with the release of karma, physical action with meditation, mental action with universal consciousness and unity, and emotional action with "beingness".
This mp3 audio program is about accepting the experience that occurs and allowing it to fade away. Similar to many forms of meditation in which one acknowledges what comes to mind, then immediately allows it to go away while continuing to observe. As you practice with this meditation mp3 you will learn about your deep fears and hopes, and you will find that there is the ability to integrate your experiences and transcend them.
