Mental chatter in meditation is something most people feel they have to stop, however, there is an easy way to master this with remarkable results.  Let’s look at this from a different point of view.  Many often wonder what to think during meditation to stop the chatter.  It's not about stopping the mental chatter, it’s about moving outside of your thoughts going through their motions.  It’s like noticing what your brain is thinking and not being personally involved in it.  The quality of your thoughts are important for inner happiness, but to think you cannot meditate with any thoughts is a set up for failure.  It’s like saying you can’t meditate unless it is completely quiet around you.  Yet can you not hear yourself breathing or the pulsation of your blood being pumped through your ears?  If this were the case, only the deaf could meditate.  Your brain is a gift, it's doing its job coming up with new wonderful ways of playing and experiencing life.  Where it can cause a disturbance in your meditation is when you are not...

Unlearning – The Way to Dig Out a Lifetime of Opposing Beliefs

February 11. 2016 | by Brook Still | A-Ha! Moments, Featured Articles[ssba title="Unlearning – The Way to Dig Out a Lifetime of Opposing Beliefs" url="https://creationcenter.org/unlearning-the-way-to-dig-out-a-lifetime-of-opposing-beliefs/"]

People will sum you up in a heartbeat.  They will look at your physical appearance and make judgments.  They’ll ask what your value is by questioning, “So, what do you do for a living?” They’ll check out what car you drive or the house you live in.  From our current social training and conditioning this all makes a big impression on who you are and what you’re worth. For some reason (probably because my Mom was a hippie, thank you Mom!), I didn’t fully get the depth of this social conditioning until my husband and I did a massive remodel of our home and we started having our daughter’s friends come over.  Seeing how they and their parents would react to the girls and I before they saw our home, compared to afterwards, was eye opening and made me feel really uncomfortable.  I am a very down to earth type of person and our home basically became a mini-mansion, by far the largest house in our lovely middle class neighborhood.  My husband relished in it.  You could see he loved...

Creating the Healing Gift of Full Presence through Deep Listening

January 20. 2016 | by Brook Still | A-Ha! Moments, Featured Articles[ssba title="Creating the Healing Gift of Full Presence through Deep Listening" url="https://creationcenter.org/creating-the-healing-gift-of-full-presence-through-deep-listening/"]

People have always had challenges, pains, and sufferings. The most powerful way to heal that trauma is by coming together with one another and being fully present with each other through listening deeply. Deep listening is a practice that has been the cornerstone of indigenous healers for centuries, myself included. It is not only practiced when we work with those who have come for healing, but also when we move in nature. This is where it shifts from having a conversation heart to heart with another, to heart to nature, where the trees, plants and deva’s speak with us from that state of open awareness, the depth of deep listening. My best reference; a deep contemplation in a relaxed state. This space of being in nature creates deep peace. This sacred way of being is taught to us when we are young. This is not the way most Westerners have been trained. Because of this when we start to process our pain we stop it mid-track. We feel unsafe, judged, or not heard, and because of this we shut down,...
