REPORT ON THE STATE OF
HUMAN BEINGS in OUR STRESSED-OUTWORLD
Companion to the relaxing meditation
Hidden Gateway to Peace in a Crowded and
THE HUMAN CONDITION
Nature is at
peace with itself but we humans are born into this world
with ferocious needs beyond our control. We struggle for the
basics of human life; subsistence, security, acceptance, love,
affection and human touch.
Fears drive us: fear of pain and discomfort, fear of dying fear of
living, fear of our own thoughts and feelings.
accidents, dramas, challenges crises and stresses, and
desperate to escape this official version of reality we teeter on the
edge of a dark and stinking abyss brimming with unnamed needs and fears
we dare not look at.
There is a radiant
vision of enlightened living on the other side, we
long to find peace and happiness. But how to get there?
LIFE’S AWKWARD QUESTIONS
So many people
avoid anything remotely 'fluffy', instead relying solely
on reason and the conventional Health Service for answers to the
awkward questions of life, like who put me here, what am I here for,
what is the purpose of life...........? Perhaps you are one of those
addicted to perpetual motion in order to prevent unwanted thoughts
fears and needs, those awkward uncomfortable and painful feelings and
body sensations from raising their ugly head?
Do you work, eat, and sleep in techno-noise and crave the balm of
Perhaps you are filled with exhausting pent-up emotion and pain and you
just need some genuine tender loving care?
The day that dawns with
realisation that what we call 'Life' is
actually a thin veneer on top of the churning abyss of Chaos, further
questions on our human condition become inevitable.
Why am I here?
What is this
world and who runs the show?
How can I take
care of myself?
Can I really
help anyone else?
Can I find
peace or happiness?
How can I slow
down while the speed of life is accelerating?
Who am I?
These questions hover
just under the surface normality of the mind.
There are many who try
to relax and meditate, to get answers, yet most rarely get past first
base to 'quieten the mind'.
WHEREVER YOU GO - YOU TAKE YOURSELF WITH YOU
Gemma is someone
who tried opting out as a solution to struggling with stress, but found
herself with a worse problem.
my divorce, I decided to get out of the rat race. I
desperately wanted a new start, a better place for my kids to grow up
in. My dream was a small village with nice little school -
a quiet community where people help each other. And I found it!
starting up my own business there, I soon found that I had brought
my stressed-out city habits with me! My new life was crammed full;
focussed around the children, trying to provide and be two parents in
one, arranging wall-to-wall childcare and activities. Never gave my own
needs a thought, and hardly ever got my foot out of the door to explore
the countryside surrounding my lovely cosy village home.
just felt so worn out, so guilty and so lonely. I admit, I was
hanging on by my fingernails. All that time I was pretty
impervious to what was supposed to be wafting to me from nature in
those country lanes and fields right outside my window.
It was like Piccadilly Circus inside my head, I could have been living
the stuff I love and enjoy now about living in a rural place used
to pass me by. I don't remember hearing a bird sing or giving myself a
moment to walk along and watch tiny beetles and ants in the meadow
grass - things that I had longed to give to my family, things I adore
was in a frantic state having really terrifying nightmares. I
felt I could seriously lose it. If it wasn't for Gabrielle
I know I would have gone under."
Gemma took what I
offered and made it her own. And she has never looked back. She
loves the life she’s living now.
Since I discovered
my own secret gateway more than 30 years ago (that
is a story for another time), the approach I use to helping people
handle pain and suffering has been the complete opposite of the
conventional standard that says "just get rid of it".
I tried that
Instead of trying to
kill feelings of pain distress and upset, I
discovered how to go right in there, through the gateway, and feel
those feelings! - resulting in a massive release from body pain,
emotional strength and the freedom to enjoy fulfillment and happiness.
And to make it as easy as possible for you too, I have distilled the
best bits of my journey into this recording.
Stop fighting stress!
Hear the wise masters
advice: "Dont fight with darkness, just light a
candle!" (Osho) When you start using the techniques in Instant Bliss
light dawns and the space of miracles swiftly follows.
WHAT HAPPENED FOR FOR GEMMA
(details for health geeks)
contacted me for support I first prescribed the right
nutritional supplements for her. The purpose was to bring calm to her
overworked nervous system and rebuild her depleted reserves so that she
could sit peacefully, and simply be.
Her touch-starved body
thrived on the regular
massage and bodywork - an important part of my treatment.
Next, I helped her relax and gain the confidence to confront the pain
she was in - and surrender to it! Those tight knots and bands of
stress inside her abdomen, neck and shoulders, her rising fear and
panic, those turgid thoughts and imaginings all evaporated.
She found the gateway from the gloom to the light and has never gone
WORK - LIFE BALANCE
Here is what I
suggested for her;
Assignment 1 - balance
work and family life; priority 'me' time
Assignment 2 - after
school run go for a 20 minute run
Assignment 3 - Zoning
In session - reduce emotional build up
Assignment 4 - Do
something I love every day - (that happened to be still life painting)
Assignment 5 - Zoning
In deep relaxation session before sleep
Gemma achieved maximum
results swiftly by changing to a "me time"
lifestyle focus; clarity of mind, fitness, energy, looking good,
relaxed happy family, profitable business.
She had come
dangerously close to losing everything - her business, her
health and sanity, as well as her cherished children. She confided "I
can honestly say that I owe my family's happiness and prosperity to it"
WHAT STRESS DOES TO YOU
Its been said before by
the sages, and it has to be said again;
A life without inner
peace is a crazy life
Stress is not just
annoying demanding and incessant.
Stress is a major
contributor to muscular tension and impaired immunity.
Stress makes you
susceptible to degenerative disease infertility
depression obesity diabetes ME fibromyalgia
addictions phobias and
all the rest.
Without peace tempers
get short, compassion and empathy disappear;
opportunities are lost,
family relationships go sour, you
unwell, life feels like dragging a rock uphill and never
reaching the top.
Without space, rats
crowded in a cage turn on one another.
creativity is stifled, you dry up, stuck going round and round in the same old worn out
treadmill. Does any of that sound all too familiar?
The din of life muffles
the still small voice that is your innate wisdom. That means that you
are far more likely to make silly mistakes, get involved in accidents
and dramas that seem to confront you wherever you look.
If you live
disconnected from your own core truth, you simply are not
in the flow, never mind whatever show you put on for others.
So do you want to
tackle the mess you are in; what can you do?
THE BIG SECRET
The answer is to step
through the Gateway - that secret opening to
peace and infinite possibility that has been there all the time, just
under the surface, that precious moment of Now, easily overlooked,
was made to be the easiest way to get off the Helter-Skelter of our
daily lives to locate peace, calm and wellbeing. This meditative
process helps increase consciousness, release stress and pain, gaining
access to innate happiness and fulfilment in the moment, NOW!
Peace IS here, it has
always been here, to be discovered in the gap between one thought and
another, in the gap between one sensation and the next, in the
gaps in the emotional whirlpool;
- enter a state
of Being, not a thinking process!
- say goodbye to
trivia, boredom and unawareness:
BE CONTINUALLY PRESENT to LIFE
This is the true way to
get the authentic flavour of vibrant living
and to find the peace
and stillness that is our birthright.
Lost in all our ideas,
visualisations, techniques, dreams, desires, ideals, histories,
projections; where are you? You are missing the richness of this
moment, the richness that is in the detail.
JUST REALISE THAT THE
GATEWAY IS RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW............EXACTLY WHERE YOU ARE!
Instant Bliss brings you to this moment, the only
moment there truly
is; the past is gone, the future hasn’t happened yet, there is only Now
to live in!
I would like to
challenge you a bit more, so forgive me for pushing on.
Are you here now, or
dwelling on past recrimination, regret,
resentment? Maybe lost in a dream about your next cup of coffee,
your next shopping trip, your next date, the holiday when you are
hoping to relax at last.
If you want to
relax, do not wait - relax now!
Go on, I dare you to be
in the present moment.
Notice what is
Whatever it is,
FANTASTIC, enjoy being in it.
Make Instant Bliss
part of your daily routine, just immerse yourself daily in this bath of
deep, rejuvenating relaxation, and very soon the subtle benefits will
begin to be felt,
• feeling and looking more youthful and relaxed
• serenity compassion gratitude arising
• aches and pains dissolve as if by magic
• people appear kindlier, the world
• deepening intuition and inner wisdom
• knowing you can face life's challenges
• loving and being loved for who you really are
HOW TO GET THE BEST FROM
Persevere through the
first few times; to begin with it can be a little different to be awake
yet doing nothing;
tiredness might surface, so you could drift into a deep place akin to
or at the other extreme
be running around in your head shopping, worrying or dreaming.
That's not a
Listen to your body and
give it the rest it needs.
Soon you will
feel something quite unusual happening; a calmness and evenness coming
into your life; more ease in your relationships, tasks that once seemed
major mountains to climb are overcome, dramas that you used to attract
into your life lose their compulsive appeal, you can take it or leave
it without suppressing what you feel;
aches and pains lose
their intensity, fears and worries have less hold over you.
Just keep playing with
the recording noting what unfolds for you.
READY for IT?
Think of it as enjoying
a quiet inner holiday; hear yourself think, feel yourself breathing.
- Make a date with yourself to devote 25
minutes to Being Here with INSTANT BLISS
'my time to connect
- Ensure that you can
be undisturbed, comfortable and warm; having a drink of water and going to the toilet
beforehand helps! Listen with eyes closed; use a scarf or blindfold to keep
out unwanted light.
Now, quietly listen to
your body and your emotions; this is true You.
As the gap in
apparent reality begins to open the gateway for you, and
you start to know what is true, you will realise that this is just a
Practice on your own
and you will gain amazing techniques, and soon
become capable of recognising and seriously challenging the demands and
recurring little tricks of the mind.
Settling into a
comfortable posture, begin to breathe evenly, easily and place your
attention in your body, starting at your feet.
Feet are great connectors, plugging you in beneath the surface, with
the foundation of life - the earth, the soil. Feeling rooted
firmly in the earthprevents you from flying away too fast into the
etheric realms of woo- woo land,
keeping you connected
into what is real; your body in the here and now.
IN REAL LIFE
Once deeply relaxed and
grounded, you are going to explore the inner
experience of your body, of your emotions, feelings and thoughts - your
To try it out, take a break in real time from your normal work to do a
few ordinary daily chores, like hanging out the washing or doing some
cleaning - invaluable if you want to slip in easily to experience
Repetitive daily chores
can fill a 15 minute work break, very helpful
in keeping 'brain' and 'real' life balanced. The aim in doing
those chores consciously is to feel the body and internal state. First
to come up is resistance, remembering how we always avoided and
resented this task. Include any other connected emotions or feelings,
and let them come into the forefront of our awareness. Say "Yes" to
feeling them. Soon you will be enjoying the neat rows of washed
clothing blowing in the balmy summer breeze, a clean space around
All these impressions
and sensations create a delightful interlude
being IN the body, moving it, enjoying the senses and making those few
ordinary moments infinitely valuable, meaningful and connected. Now
this really is a transformation!
This is the flavour of Instant Bliss - feeling what is
really happening in your body your mind and emotions as you repose
sitting comfortably or lying down,
without censorship and allowing the sensations to course through your
body. This is true stress release, as you feel tension worry and
pain dissolving away through every cell, evaporating through every pore.
The calm and peace
that you experience is unsurpassed in its simplicity
and ease. To embed that, plan frequent short breaks to punctuate your
daily routine, a few minutes here and there.
an audible sigh, chose to feel inside one area of your body, notice
what mood you are in, observe your judgements and opinions and let it
all be there. Next, releasing all that through the pores of your skin,
your feet and hands, resume your activities.
How cool is that?
that you are going to be a lot more chilled than you used to be, expect
things to go easier, feel more energetic, lighter and be having more
