Discover the relationship between a “positive mental attitude” and “positive emotions.” Hi and welcome to this video. In this video, I’m going to talk about emotions. And it’s funny because I *love* emotions! I love emotions. And the reason I love emotions is because the more I’ve studied them, the more that I’ve worked with them, the more I’ve learnt about them. There’s just so much more richness that becomes available.
Hi and welcome to this video. In this video, I want to take a few minutes to talk about “positive emotions.” And I emphasize the word “positive” because that word is an assessment. It’s just an opinion that we have about certain things in life. And- and in this case it’s going to be an opinion, or an assessment, about the emotions. Now where I come from and the training that I did with my coach training from Newfield Network an emotion is something that visits us all the time.
Hi and welcome to this section. In this section, we’re going to wrap up your learning. But first of all I want to congratulate you on your journey! You know you are in the top 95th percentile of dedicated individuals, dedicated students, who want to go on to create a successful meditation practise. And now my question to you is what is that relationship you have to the emotion of commitment?
Hi and welcome. Whenever your body and mind are comfortable you may start the timer and begin. The invitation is to simply notice what shows up for you. Take that observer you are and notice your thoughts. Just simply notice what’s going on for you right now. There is nothing to judge. There is nothing to take your attention. Just notice where you are and notice your thoughts. How are your thoughts?
In an earlier video we talked about what meditation was according to that traditional definition of yoga, to that aṣṭāṅga yoga. Now this video is going to introduce the ways that you can use to prepare awareness so that you can consciously direct it into attention and then subsequently concentration. Now when you practise and perfect these two of attention and concentration, naturally it’ll move into your awareness going and unfolding into that state of meditation.
One of the common metaphors given for the mind, for meditation or things like that, is that of like a lake, or a large body of water, or pool of water. And the idea behind is that, the water is calm, naturally. It’s calm and clear and you can see to the bottom. And that at the bottom, there is a treasure. And from the Vedic perspective, that treasure at the bottom is like the intuitive nature.
Hi and welcome to this section. Before we continue on to this section, I want to ask you how your action steps were for the last section. Now if you haven’t already done those action steps in the last section, I invite you to stop this video now and take care of those few items. So with that being said, once again, welcome to this section. So this is the section where we get to establish that baseline for your own meditation practise.
Hi and welcome to this video. In this video, I want to take a few moments to wrap up all of the things that we’ve talked about this week. This week was kind of a big week! I think because we dealt with the emotions of guilt and shame and their etymology, as well as how to deal with guilt and shame, and how to overcome guilt. Now these are just tips and techniques but, very broadly, this week was kind of introduction to emotions, and the meaning of emotions, and how they can be useful to you.
Hi and welcome to this video. In this video I want to talk to you about how to overcome guilt. In earlier videos, we talked about guilt as an emotion. And like all emotions guilt has a story attached to it. Guilt has a certain predisposition to action. Guilt also has a body stance, posture, or physical disposition. And finally the emotion of guilt also has a breathing pattern.
Hi and welcome to this video. In this video I want to talk about how to deal with guilt and shame. Now these two are wonderful emotions and I think they visit as each and every day because it’s so pervasive in at least the North American culture. The reason I mention this is- you know, think about the TV dramas that you watch, or the TV show that you watch.
