Welcome to Episode 2 of Empowering Meditations with James Cole.
You can purchase this meditation without the intro and outro as an MP3 audio file for $3 from our Guided Meditation store.
This powerful guided meditation is designed as an introductory session to our meditations. Introducing you to an inner world and inner power. Guiding you to tap into your inner energy that can be used to create a safe place with a protective barrier.
By creating a safe space you’re essentially giving your unconscious mind the permission to guide you. Generally in everyday life when we communicate with ourselves or with other people, we use words as a primary form of language, either spoken or written. However, it’s not the primary language of the unconscious mind. The unconscious mind uses the language of metaphor, and this can come in many variations which is unique to each and every one of us. Creating a safe space for your unconscious mind will allow your inner language to be free.
Quite often the language of our unconscious mind can be quite difficult to understand consciously. Sometimes it can appear completely illogical, sometimes they can be outright weird and sometimes they can appear to be counterintuitive to what we want. That’s okay. By creating this safe space and allowing these thoughts to just come and just be, you’re allowing your unconscious mind to unravel the mysteries inside. Let go of any judgment or censorship or any analysis and just allow the thoughts to flow freely and trust that any thought that you have, is the right thought for your unconscious mind, regardless of if your conscious mind finds it illogical or doesn’t understand it.
Once your inner safe space is established you can return to it at any time and it can be the basis for any future meditations that you may want to do. I established my safe space when I got introduced to hypnotherapy over 20 years ago and it has pretty much stayed the same all this time. I use it in my meditations when I’ve got problems that I need to work out. Or emotions that I need to deal with.
You’ll then be guided through the meditation to increase learning abilities and improve understanding and comprehension by creating a learning state that is accessible at any time in the future. Even outside of meditation.
The learning state is useful for everyone, not just those who at school or university. It’s a great way of increasing your perception to allow more information into your mind, and when you do this it’ll allow you to retain the information better and have a deeper understanding of it. and once you start to use the learning state, it means that you’ll be able to learn things on an unconscious level. Which means the information you take in will be available intuitively.
It’s a simple process to use it outside of meditation too. You can simply gaze up, maybe find a spot on the wall in front of you and allow your peripheral vision to open up as wide as possible. Then widen your perception further until you have a sense of everything that’s completely around you, a full 360 degrees. When you do that and you just focus on it for a few minutes you are inducing the learning state.
One thing to keep in mind if you’re at school or university and you’re using the learning state to prepare for an exam is that the human mind best remembers in the same state that it gained the information in the first place. So the best practice is to go back into the learning state just as you’re about to sit the exam. Put your mind in the same state of mind you were when you learned the information and you’ll find that the information flows back to you much easier than it would have normally.
Benefits of this guided meditation:
- Like most meditations, a deep sense of relaxation and renewed energy can be achieved.
- Increased sensation of safety. By creating an inner safe place, this can help people with anxiety and fears to ease their suffering. If in an anxious or fearful state, being able to tap into an inner safe space can ease the presence of anxiety or fear.
- This is great for anyone who needs to learn new things. By creating the ‘Learning State’ you will increase your ability to learn, retain what you have learned and most importantly, find it easier to understand and comprehend what you are learning. This is a perfect starting point for people studying at school or university, those needing to learn new skills at work or anyone who just wants to learn and understand something new.
