WHAT IS MEDITATION?

The silence fall over an ancient temple while rows of monks with tunics keep the body and the mind still.
With the eyes close, the legs in the lotus position, the eye of the mind looking inside, for hours their disciplined mind stays in this way to meditate.

Meditation has been part of religious and spiritual practice of human kind all along its History.

Sometimes this is what you’re imagining when you pronounce the word meditation.
In fact meditation has been a part of spiritual and religious practice of human kind all along its History. Even if it will take years of constant practice to keep this trance state for hours, the meditation and his many benefits are easy to access for everyone, and it’s also possible that you’re practicing without even realizing.
Meditation simply means the act of think or contemplate. Follow the definition of the Royal Spanish Academy Dictionary  to meditate means  to apply with deep attention the thought to look something, or to reason about the tools to know it or to obtain it”.
All over the world it has different names, but the idea is always the same: reach a state where it is easy to focus on one thing. If sometimes you find yourself dreaming with eyes open, for a short time,you are meditating. If you discover yourself attract to a repetitive sounds, like the movement of the wheels or the sound of the train, for example, you were in a meditative state. 
Is the same when you’re reading a book or you loose the sense of the time passing. Sometimes we practice meditation without even realizing it. It happens when we are contemplating something that takes completely our attention for few instants.

2) Now close your eyes and listen all the sounds and pay attention to the subtle nuances.


3) Observe the scents.

WHAT IS THE HYPNOYOGA?

I am pleased to present you the new method for a personal growth , to control stress and emotions and to get success of life.
It is something that my husband and I are working on together for a few years and now here it is: the hypnoyoga.
Here a small description, done by my husband Mario Caponetto, aeronautic engineer and hypnotherapist, and a very important member of the project INSAYOGA.COM

“We’re all looking for well being and we know that its born from the balance between body and mind. But, first of all , at the mental level, there must be a balance and an understanding between conscious mind and unconscious mind, I mean an agreement between our intentions and our emotional feelings. For a lot of us this is the most difficult thing to obtain because normally we are victims of external conditioning. It is known that hypnosis is a powerful instrument, that we have to open the doors of our subconscious, and, once we’re in,we can correct our wrong conditioning, and in this way we can cure our anxiety, fear and addictions.
Technically we can reach that using inducement, a particular state of relaxation follow by a verbal suggestion.

The human well being has his roots in the balance of mind and body.

Yoga is one of the best way to reach the relaxation level needed for the trance, because it creates a strong synergy between body and mind.
In yoga the physical practice is join together with meditation, a mental state where attention moves to subconscious, like happens in hypnosis. But, while in meditation we are looking to move away from thoughts to clear our mind, in hypnosis we can also reprogram the mind to cure his sickness.
Yoga is an unique tool to control body and mind. A session of yoga, before a session of hypnosis, put body and mind in the perfect state for a trance mood.
Yoga and hypnosis are practices with different origins and history, but they have much in common and they complement each other.
The hypnoyoga is the perfect symbiosis for the personal reborn to get the well being of body and mind.

MEDITATION TECHNIQUES : the meditation of the seven chakras.


The meditation of the seven chakras is a driven meditation technique to fix our emotions and unlock the seven chakras.
Sit or lay down in a comfortable position, slowly observe every part of the body. You have to check up your body and observe where are some tensions: don’t judge, let them go, let the parts of your body relax.

If you are laying down, start to pay attention which parts of your body touch the floor: the heels, the calfskin,the muscles,the buttocks,the lower back,the upper back, the back of the hand, the forearms, the elbows, the arms, the shoulders, and the last, which part of your head touch the floor.
Bring your attention to each of these parts, feel how much they weight, feel how much they sink in the floor; you have to feel them heavy and light at the same time. When you reach the complete muscles relaxation, you can start the meditation.

You can also meditate in a sitting position, in the easy posture, so you can keep it for some minutes. You can choose between lotus position, half lotus position or easy posture. If these posture are difficult for you , sit on your knees and place under your buttock a pillow. The important thing is that the spinal column stays straight and the legs are higher than the knees.


From this situation, where you are in a complete muscular relaxation, start to visualize a red light at the base of your spinal column, where is the first chakra, this is the chakra of survival. This chakra is close for fear. Observe your fears. But don’t escape, think that the fear isn’t real and let it flows.

Imagine now an orange light, three fingers under your belly bottom , at the height of the second chakra, the chakra of water. This chakra is the chakra of pleasure and it is close for guilt. Why are you blaming yourself? What ever it is, accept it, think that you couldn’t acting in a different way, and don’t let the guilt cloud your energy. If you want to be a positive person in this world, you have to start to forgive yourself.

Visualize a yellow light, three fingers on top of your belly bottom,at the high of the solar plexus. The third chakra is the chakra of the fire. Is the chakra of the willpower and it is close for shame. What are you ashamed of? Contemplate it and let it go.

Imagine now a green light at the chest, is the chakra of heart. The fourth chakra is the chakra of love and is close for sorrow. Open to all your sadness. Think that love is an energy that does not disappear. Let your sorrow flows.

Think to a blue light at the high of the throat, is the fifth chakra or the chakra of sound. This chakra is about truth and is close for lies. Do you need to tell something to someone or to yourself? You can’t lie to yourself, be honest.
Observe a purple light in the middle of the forehead, at the high of sixth chakra, and this is the chakra of the inner vision, the interior knowledge, and is close from false perceptions. The biggest of our false perceptions is the fallacy of separation: you are not existing apart from all the things, from all alive being.
Try to feel how your skin disappear slowly slowly, remove the boundaries between you and the Universe . Feel to be part of the Universe.

At last imagine a strong white light at the top of your head, where is the seventh chakra. This is the chakra of the universal cosmic energy in his pure state and it is close from all the things that tied us at this world. Connecting with this energy, you are a drop of this energy, let flow the things that own you, that tied you at this world. Free yourself.
Namaste,
