I'm going to show you something that few people know…
This one exercise helped me start my spiritual journey.
The problem is, when we talk about, ‘life changing' stuff, people automatically shut down.
It's not our fault. We're trained to do it.
However, I'm going to ask you to suspend your disbelief for just a few moments, and read this article in its entirety.
Because you never know, this article could be that, ‘gem in the rough'.
This could actually be life-changing!
You see, just like you, I was very sceptical.
No… actually I was a lot worse…
I was very cynical.
Being bought up in a cynical household, I had every reason to be.
That, and the very fact that I was also brought up as Roman Catholic.
So a church-goer, who is cynical, who had almost zilch passion for life.
On top of that, I even thought that life was a waste of time.
After all, if we are all just skin and bones, being born just to pay tax and die into nothingness, then what was the point of it all? (as you can tell, I had a lot of friends;-).
Surely there is more to life that this?
And yet, as I went to church, there was a nagging feeling that there was something I was missing, the knowing of it would change everything.
Don't you just love statements like that as well…
I will never forget the old story of the teenagers that are driving an old banger.
As they turn down a particularly nice, tidy street, they look around.
They see all of these nice clean posh houses, with lovely sports cars in their garages…
One guy looks at the other guy and says (the now infamous line), ‘There is something that we don't know, the knowing of which will change everything‘.
I was like that 10 years ago.
Since then, I have asked a lot of deep questions, received very surprising answers and now meditate on a regular basis due to mental clarity as well as understanding some of the health benefits.
And it all began with a simple exercise,
that took less than 5 minutes
Actually, that's a lie…
It all, truth be told, began with listening to a voice that told me to buy a certain book (which is still available online), which THEN led me to another book which talked about this exercise.
Before I forget, let me quickly tell you a few things…
This isn't like any other exercises that you know (only a few of you will know this one).
This isn't about opening your chakras, you even meditating deeply (that may come later…)
Or about EFT… although that's very useful.
And it certainly isn't about mindfulness either (although that could be a by-product of this).
Or about a visualization type of meditation exercise…not that there is anything wrong with those (of course;-).
This is something that for a few of you, will radically change how you perceive the world!
It did for me…
…and this is coming from a former cynic!
This is how good it can be
But before I carry on, just a few words of caution…
This exercise requires just two things: open mindedness and a mirror.
Opened mindedness is always crucial when trying a new exercise.
We're so bombarded with crap info left, right and centre when it comes to online stuff, we have no idea who or what to trust.
That's understandable and fair…
After all, whose fault is it that we are so sceptical? (and trust me, the answer isn't yours;-)
So we are taught early on to not only develop our inner BS indicator, but also to fine tune it and listen to it as often as we can.
If we don't we get burned.
Yet, every now and again, a little bit of open mindedness can go along way. This is one of those times (again, don't believe me, but try it and see for yourself;-)
and number 2, the mirror…
Well, lets just say that you'll find out in a few moments;-)
Enough waffling, here's the exercise:
1 – Find a mirror that its around head height, or one which you can hold up to your face.
We are aiming to gaze into our own eyes, as the eyes are the windows to your soul. Of course, you have probably heard that loads of times, so this time, we are going to actually experience it, for experience creates wisdom (as you are about to discover, hopefully).
2 – Look at your eyes, and gaze at the black bits in the centre, that is called the pupil.
3 – Don't strain hard, but gaze gently for a few minutes.
4 – What you should find is a deep peace which doesn't emanate from your Heart area (this isn't the Heart Chakra opening up, for once) but even more deeply from your centre of being.
5 – Keep gazing softly at your pupils until you have enough peace for the day;-)
Easy, wasn't it
You may find that by doing this exercise, you might feel slightly light headed and feel you are going to faint and pass out.
Don't worry abut this, as you'll find that you should be able to stand up to the light headedness, enough to grow strong enough to handle the peace.
I remember when I first did this.
I was sceptical that it wasn't going to work, and was so close to not even attempt this exercise (I still remember that moment to this very day.
Thank god I didn't talk myself out of it! I remember walking to my bathroom, and looking into my eyes and felt like I was going to pass out.
But I didn't, and survived long enough to tell the tale;-)
The whole experience lasted just a few minutes.
That was all I needed, and I began realising that I have been told a bunch of lies.
From that moment on, my BS indicator began getting better, as I could tell what information resonated with my being, and which stuff was just manipulation.
I also invite you to do the same, and begin seeing this as another simple meditation exercise (which it is!).
Of course, if you can combine this with meditating deeply, then that is even better.
Whilst I haven't got the expertise to teach you, I know of someone who can.
His name is Gerald O'Donnell, and he has produced 2 courses which allow you to meditate deeply than ever before.
And when I mean deep, we're talking about brainwaves that are into the Theta and even Delta range.
Now that's deep!
Not only that, but these ARVARI courses can also help you increase you intuition, which can help you not only in your personal life but also reduce (and in some cases, avoid) dangerous situations before you find yourself involved in them.

Till next time
P.S. Looking into your eyes is a great way to connecting to your higher consciousness, or soul.
To do this requires that you use a mirror, and gaze gently at your pupils. By doing this, you will find a deep peace emanating deep within your centre of being.
Combining this with meditating deeply can bring some profound results. To find out more information about meditating deeply, please click here.
