Mindfulness Meditation Resources
Grant & I have been meditating for 20+ years now, exploring various forms of practice throughout the years. In 2016, I, Annik, was very blessed to gift myself with one of the most extraordinary and transformational experiences of my life. The experience that took my spiritual practice to deeper heights of consciousness was one that I have fondly come to call my ‘4.5-month Spiritual Sabbatical.’
Under the auspices of Dr. Gabriel Cousens at The Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center in Patagonia, AZ, I felt honoured to undertake studies in holistic health, yoga and raw food preparation. Feeling called to dive deeply into my journey of self-discovery, I relished in adventurous travels throughout Arizona, meeting a cast of characters who would not only grace my life, but find themselves in one form or another, in my books.
One day, upon landing in Magical Sedona, I heard a woman whom I did not recognize calling out my name. I was utterly stunned. Who could this woman be? After all, I had only just arrived in this beautiful, but foreign place and I knew not a soul!
Well, amongst many serendipitous occurrences which would occur throughout my travels, this woman would turn out to be none other than a former neighbour and long-lost friend! Jenine invited me to sit in meditation with a group of Dr. David Hawkins’ disciples. I felt truly blessed.
And so it is that we now come to share Dr. David Hawkins’ research with you!
Dr. Hawkins’ research shows that we can optimize our health and well-being by influencing our energetic, vibrational field. In Dr. Hawkins’ Consciousness Map Chart attached below, we see that all levels/emotions have a corresponding vibrational quality. Those at the top of the chart correspond to higher hertz frequencies, while those at the bottom are associated with lower hertz frequencies. The idea is that if you choose Higher Frequencies more often, you will be blessed with optimal health. By choosing higher vibrational emotions, we also become poised to attract higher vibrational life experiences. Such is the Law of Attraction. You can learn more about Dr. David Hawkins by reading his seminal work, Power VS. Force: The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior. For further readings on the Law of Attraction, see Esther & Jerry Hicks in their book of same title.

At the APP Store, you can find two apps that we particularly recommend:
Insight Timer Guided Meditations: This app allows you to choose the length and theme of your meditation. We recommend taking time for two meditations daily, one in the morning, and the second prior to bed.
Gratitude App: Look for an icon that has a flower in the shape of a heart motif. Click daily to support populating your mind with positive thoughts.
Think of your precious mind as a magnificent garden, full of the most resplendent blossoms. The garden of your mind contains a diversity of vibrant colors, textures, foliage and scents, all of which contribute to your joy and pleasure. How are you populating your mind? Are you choosing positive, happy, loving thoughts that serve you? What can you do when a negative thought arises? Do you know about the importance of pruning such thoughts out of the microbiome of your mind so that what grows is beautiful and happy? Expressing gratitude daily is one of the quickest ways to harvest joy and happiness!
Finally, you can also search Healing Meditations for a host of other options. Enjoy your search and the fun of playful experimentation!
