9 Relaxation Meditations Practiced Around the World

By | Blog, Meditation, Non-Visual Skills for Blind and Sighted, Uncategorized, Vibravision USA | No Comments

As the June wedding season approaches, love is in the air! After all, isn’t “love” a universal language? Maybe! But it’s not the only one. ‘Turns out, meditation is also wide-reaching. Today, we’re going to discuss 9 relaxation meditations practiced around the world, and we hope you’ll join the conversation.

Wealth Of Health Meditation

What Is Meditation?

If you follow our Vibravision Foundation, you may have read our March 5, 2019 post about five meditation types and their benefits. There, we provided a definition from Yoga International that defines the practice well.

“[Meditation is] a precise technique for resting the mind and attaining a state of consciousness that is totally different from the normal waking state…Meditation is…a science, which means that the process of meditation follows a particular order, has definite principles, and produces results that can be verified. In meditation, the mind is clear, relaxed, and inwardly focused. When you meditate, you are fully awake and alert, but your mind is not focused on the external world or on the events taking place around you. Meditation requires an inner state that is still and one-pointed so that the mind becomes silent. When the mind is silent and no longer distracts you, meditation deepens.”

At MP USA, our Wealth of Health and Vibravision programs can be classified as forms of meditation because they specialize in using meditation to improve both personal health and situational awareness. Our Wealth of Health program is beneficial on a holistic level because it creates an environment for active meditation, which can help you unlock the secrets to a longer, healthier life. If you want to drill down further, our Vibravision program allows you to sharpen your senses so keenly that you can “see” without using your eyes. In the United States, both opportunities are available only through MP USA.

What Options Are Available?

Before we delve deeper, we’d like to remind you of six ways meditation will improve your life. These include:

  • Stress Relief
  • Improved Focus
  • Making Money
  • Improved Immune System
  • Improved Sleep
  • Problem Solving

What’s even better is that there’s not a one-size-fits-all approach to acquiring these benefits. If you’d like to explore some options, Live & Dare gives you 23. We’ve narrowed them down to nine.

  1. Metta Meditation: This Indian form of meditation is of Buddhist origin and focuses on expressing love and kindness – Metta in the Pali language – toward yourself and others. It is practiced in a seated position and involves repeating words or phrases that evoke a “boundless warm-hearted feeling.”
  2. Mindfulness Meditation: Mindfulness meditation is similarly rooted in Buddhism, specifically Vipassana or insight meditation. It has also been influenced by Vietnamese Zen Buddhism. Mindfulness meditation is becoming increasingly popular in the United States and, as Live & Dare explains,  the practice involves “intentionally focusing on the present moment, accepting and non-judgmentally paying attention to the sensations, thoughts, and emotions that arise.”
  3. Mindful Breathing (Breath awareness): In the Pali language, mindful breathing is called samatha. Samatha practice is incorporated within many Buddhist traditions and involves calming the mind to increase concentration.
  4. Kundalini Yoga: Kundalini yoga is a complex form of “energy awakening” that is deeply influenced by Hinduism and must be practiced under the guidance of a qualified yogi. Its goal is to awaken dormant energy centers in the body to achieve psychic development and enlightenment.
  5. Zen: Zen, or Zazen, is Japanese in origin and is one of the most widely practiced Buddhist meditation techniques in existence. It involves sitting on a mat or a chair, straightening the back, and focusing on the movement of breath, often to a count.
  6. Transcendental: Transcendental meditation is an Indian technique, first introduced in the 1950s. It is practiced widely worldwide and involves repeating specific mantras, which are often the Tantric names of Hindu deities.
  7. Guided: Guided meditation is “a modern phenomenon” that involves focusing with the help of a guide on overcoming a specific challenge or achieving a specific desire. Guided meditations are often shared via recordings that consumers can listen to with headphones while they are either seated in a comfortable position or laying down. They often involve imagery that “makes use of the imagination and visualization powers of the brain” for the purposes of relaxation and/or healing.
  8. Binaural Beats: Binaural beats are sound frequencies that were originally discovered in 1839 by Heinrich Wilhelm Dove, a Polish physicist, and meteorologist.  Through his research. Dove learned that when these rhythms are transmitted through stereo headphones -with a different beat playing in each ear – they can help the brain achieve a meditative state. Binaural beats are useful for relaxation, sleep, and focus.
  9. Affirmations: Affirmations are usually incorporated within the practice of guided imagery and involve the repetition of a positive or inspirational phrase tied to a specific desire or goal. “I believe in myself,” “I have confidence in what I do,” and “life is good,” are examples of common affirmations.

The Amazing Science of Radiative Energy Transfer and Vibravision in Ogden Utah

By | Martial Arts for Blind Students Ogden Utah, Uncategorized, Vibravision Foundation, Vibravision Videos | No Comments

What do Fox 13’s Big Budah, University of Utah Ph.D. recipient Isaac Hunsaker and Phoenix resident Nicole Coyle have in common? The answer may surprise you. These people – each of them from very different places – have come together in our training facility to experience the amazing science of radiative energy transfer and Vibravision in Ogden Utah.

Big Budah is a journalist, who has featured MP USA on Good Day Utah and Live at Eleven. Hunsaker is a scientist, whose dissertation explores radiative energy transfer. Coyle is a blind student of Vibravision who lost her sight due to degenerative glaucoma and detached retinas. Now, Coyle says, she is learning to awaken hidden parts of her brain to “see.”

What Is Radiative Energy Transfer?

Vibravision students, Lily Vu and Nicole Coyle pointing with their canes to colored bags on the floor after being asked to identify them.

“Radiation is the dominant mode of heat transfer in high-temperature combustion environments,” wrote Hunsaker, Thornock, Harman, and Smith (2013). “Radiative heat transfer affects the gas and particle phases, including all the associated combustion chemistry. The radiative properties are in turn affected by the turbulent flow field.”

Huh? We were grateful to find a less technical explanation of radiative energy transfer at Chegg.com, where it is defined more simply as the process by which energy transfers from one place to another in the form of electromagnetic radiation. The transfer takes place in three ways, the website explains, ”absorption of energy, emission of energy and scattering of energy.” One example of radiative energy transfer is the transfer of energy to the earth from the sun. Other examples include heat from a campfire, X-rays, microwave ovens and radio waves.

What Is Vibravision?

Vibravision is a unique Merpati Putih program that focuses on the development of heightened senses and intuition by opening your Third Eye, which is also known as the ajna (brow) chakra. With much practice, commitment and focus, our Vibravision students at MP USA can learn to perceive their surroundings without the use of their eyesight.

Some people compare Vibravision to having Jedi powers. Others recognize its significant benefits to the blind. “When you lose vision,” said Coyle, “it is more than traumatic, like you’re always in a state of loss…With Vibravision, you’re in the opposite state of mind. You’re not in a state of loss. You’re always in a state of gaining, and it’s a completely different thing – like I’m a different person now that I’m learning to get vision back.”

Vibravision originated in Indonesia and is used in military missions conducted by the country’s elite commando paratroopers. Its techniques have also been employed for decades in Indonesian search and rescue operations.

MP USA is privileged to be the only licensed and accredited Vibravision academy in North or South America, and we offer 5-day camps, immersion events, and weekly classes to help both sighted and non-sighted participants train their minds to develop these amazing skills.

What’s the Vibravision/Radiative Energy Transfer Connection?

Vibravision is much more than a meditative practice, self-mastery tool or superpower. It’s an example of radiative energy transfer that is gaining the attention and respect of scientists, doctors, and researchers worldwide. Believe it or not, Vibravision students can learn to recognize colors, navigate obstacles, shoot targets and even read without ocular vision. Vibravision can also improve orientation and mobility for the blind. Although it takes a lot of practice and development, many students will actually begin to see pictures in their mind’s eye.

As our Vibravision program becomes more well-recognized, we have been evaluated and endorsed by professionals in many fields, including medicine, business, journalism, and law. Thousands of spectators have witnessed our demonstrations, and we have earned the respect of optometrists, opticians, and advocates for the blind. As one of the country’s leading radiative energy transfer experts, Hunsaker gave us his personal endorsement.

“As a radiation expert, I know that every object that is above absolute zero in temperature emits radiation,” he said. “I also know that our bodies are full of photoreceptors, not just in our eyes but in our ears and skin. It is no surprise to me that our brains are capable of picking up radiation from the objects that surround us, even if our eyes are artificially or inherently blinded. Vibravision has been able to tap into those non-ocular photoreceptors and has created a fun yet professional environment for its students. Vibravision is real.”

Take a look at our demo video, and then come experience the amazing science of radiative energy transfer and Vibravision in Ogden Utah. Our next introductory classes take place September 5, 12, 19 and 26, and weekly training courses begin in October. For more information call (866) 666-7872 today.
