    Meditation for Children | Should Kids Meditate?

    Podcast Here (Clips from episodes: K4647 and K4755) This podcast is brought to you by the Foundation of Human Understanding: http://www.fhu.com Have you benefited from guided meditation? Curious if meditation is right for your child or children? Wondering when and how to introduce meditation to your kids? On this free podcast, Mitch is wondering what age is appropriate to introduce meditation to his children. Meditation expert Roy Masters discusses with him the importance of not pushing meditation on your children. Being a good example, especially as a father, provides a natural form of meditation for children. At a certain age, some children may ask how to meditate. Marco, a ten-year-old boy, provides a special testimonial for the Be Still and Know meditation. If it wasn't for the free guided meditation, he would still be dealing the destructive anger and trauma he's suffered with since was six. Quotes regarding children and meditation from Roy Masters’ books: The salvation of your children and family depends on two things: 1) your standing firm on principle, making principle unmistakably clear and 2) their choosing to stand with you on the side of principle, it having been made clear to them. The choice must be theirs alone, for God wants volunteers, not conscripts; that is why you must get your own will in the matter out of the way. - Adam & Eve Sindrome The true authority is within; those who are truly linked to that authority in themselves understand the very delicate process of slowly introducing their children to their own centers of dignity. If you have such authority in yourself— that is, if you have abandoned your ego life—your offspring can follow any suggestion from you without any danger whatsoever of becoming conditioned to an authority outside themselves, for the love coming through you is in concert with the understanding of life in them. - How to Conquer Negative Emotions “Don’t coerce people to accept you or your beliefs. You have no responsibility but to express the Truth. By doing so, you provide an example that stands in sharp contrast to evil. Be patient; let people make their own commitments.” - How to Conquer Negative Emotions LISTEN: ----- If you suffer deeply from the effects of stress, fear and pain, we recommend Roy Masters’ special meditation and advice audio pack: Overcoming Stress Fear and Pain.

    Learn Meditation | How to Benefit from Meditation Exercises

    Podcast Here (Clip from episodes: K3673 and K4481) This podcast is brought to you by the Foundation of Human Understanding: http://www.fhu.com Are you looking to learn how to meditate? Have you attempted meditation before, only to find yourself struggling with it? Do you find yourself getting frustrated while attempting a meditative state? Are you wondering how meditation can benefit you? On this episode of the Meditation – Overcoming Stress and Illness Podcast, Thomas discusses getting hung up "trying" to meditate properly. Radio counselor Roy Masters explains how struggling with meditation can undermine any positive results that are possible through the meditation exercise. Being that the Be Still & Know guided meditation is designed to point one away from emotional effort, one must learn not to struggle with the exercise. Roy also hears from Rick who describes the benefits of meditation he has experienced. By using the free guided meditation to separate from his thoughts, Rick has been able to overcome symptoms brought on by agoraphobia, such as panic attacks and paranoia. Roy explains how to maintain all the benefits that meditation helps bring you to. Quotes regarding learning meditation and its benefits from Roy Masters’ books: “Meditation... is the vital key to understanding everything. Without the objective state of meditation, your real self is not free from its involvement in the mind-stuff with its hodgepodge of prejudice and sin, education and cultural conditioning.” - The Secret Power of Words “The correct technique of meditation facilitates the process of bringing you up and out of the old system of responding into the new state of functioning from realizing. The Truth indeed awakens and sets you free from responding like a zombie in a dream world.” - How to Conquer Suffering Without Doctors “Love and courage are not qualities we can bestow on ourselves. At most, we can only long to be graced with them, to hunger and thirst after righteousness; and (correct) meditation is the way the sincere seeker of Truth has always employed to express his commitment to Good.” - Understanding Sexuality “Needless to say, the meditation exercise I have recommended will enable you to sift the natural from the unnatural, as well as enable you to realize the lie (hypnotic suggestion) from the Truth.” - How to Conquer Suffering Without Doctors “Only the process of meditation, entered into with the right intent, can lead the student to the rediscovery of these truths for himself and gently clear the way for the action of grace that can transform him.” - Understanding Sexuality “Your meditation is the way to the Life and the Truth; it involves two important antihypnotic and antimagnetic phases, one rising out of the other. Believe and follow what is revealed, and you complete a cycle; you establish a permanent relationship with the indwelling God, and nothing can ever pull you away again. Being 'hooked' here means being saved.” - How to Conquer Suffering Without Doctors LISTEN: ----- If you suffer deeply from the effects of stress, fear and pain, we recommend Roy Masters’ special meditation and advice audio pack: Overcoming Stress Fear and Pain.

    Meditation and Imagination | Overactive Imaginations

    Meditation and Imagination | Overactive Imaginations

    Podcast Here Do you have an overactive imagination? Do you use your imagination to escape pain? Is the difference between fantasy and reality sometimes difficult to determine? On this podcast episode, Sharon brings up that she has been meditating regularly for over a year, and is concerned that it may be hypnotic. Radio counselor Roy Masters spells out how to know if you are hypnotized by meditation. Though she may not be hypnotized by meditation, Sharon is addicted to creating elaborate stories in her mind. Roy discusses how getting lost in your imagination through preplanning, and fantasy is really the misuse of a God-given talent. A second caller, June, is wondering if what she is envisioning during meditation is a product of her overactive imagination. At one point in the free guided meditation, Roy says, “You can almost see an outline of your hand, through your mind’s eye.” When meditating, June says that here hand doesn’t look like her own. Roy explains how becoming objective and aware lead you to see things differently. (Clip from episodes: K3537 and K4485) This podcast is brought to you by the Foundation of Human Understanding: http://www.fhu.com Quotes regarding imagination from Roy Masters’ books : “The meditation is the science of starting a similar stimulation from the other side of the psyche. It is a science of diminishing response to temptation, persons or things. By eliminating the response to outer stimulation, we starve the roots of unfounded fears and dissolve the faulty imagination, opening up a whole new world of understanding. Then, and only then, do we begin to see reality.” - How Your Mind Can Keep You Well “Your imaginative mind is a computer. You are not supposed to live inside your computer; otherwise, you lose control over the input. Lost in your imagination, your computer is overshadowed by other forces suggesting exciting lies and ideas to you. You are no longer creating in a godly sense, but in a prideful and tragic sense.” - Adam and Eve Sindrome “Since childhood, your mind has been lost in your imagination, just as Alice lost herself in Wonderland. You have probably confused fixation and fascination with true concentration and meditation. You have been so involved with fascinating things that you could not be aware enough to realize the vital difference between fascination and concentration.” - How to Conquer Negative Emotions “Seek, therefore, the true ground of being. To find it, you must be willing to give up pride, emotion, and fantasy. Imagination is the world where pride lives away from reality, where you are the only reality. That is a very dangerous place to be. When you are lost in your mind, words take on a false life and false meaning; they lie, they excite. Here you are like God, in control of everything. It seems as though you are making people serve you. But you are merely giving power to devils to excite you with lies, with words, with the knowledge of good and evil.” - Adam and Eve Sindrome ----- If you suffer deeply from the effects of stress, fear and pain, we recommend Roy Masters’ special meditation and advice pack: Overcoming Stress Fear and Pain.

    Meditation Benefits: A Testimonial | Coping With Loneliness

    Podcast Here Do you overeat or find yourself obsessing over food? Is stress, anxiety or depression holding you back? Did you know that there is a simple, meditative exercise, that when practiced daily, benefits both your physical and mental health? On this podcast episode, Mark gives a testimonial regarding the free guided meditation technique. By disconnecting emotionally from food and practicing the “Be Still and Know” daily meditation, he is happier and beginning to see the world more clearly. During their conversation, radio counselor Roy Masters reemphasizes the simplicity of this meditation. “You drop your anger, and I’ll show you how to get rid of all your illnesses and have a happy life.” Now that his life is improving immensely, Mark’s friends are not as eager to heed his advice. “I feel like I won a million dollars and no one wants any of it.” How should one cope with feelings of loneliness and isolation that often accompanies personal success? Roy Masters answers this and discusses more about the benefits of meditation in this free podcast episode. (Clip from episode: K4545) This podcast is brought to you by the Foundation of Human Understanding: http://www.fhu.com Quotes regarding feelings of loneliness from Roy Masters’ books : "Of course, from the moment you undertake to live from your common sense rather than from the world's illusions, you will be engaged in a war of natures, yours and theirs, the good coming through your freedom, versus the guile coming through their vices. They will try to make you doubt your perspective in order to involve their nature with yours, but you must frustrate their purpose by remaining calm and detached. The world does not take kindly to the person who can stand alone on principle, so you will be faced with every love/hate trick in the book. Just stand your ground, with merry eyes twinkling." - Surviving the Comfort Zone “It is your own evolving consciousness that makes others aware of what they are doing to you and to themselves. They see your grace, your aloneness in the world. They see your strength, rooted in an invisible ground of being, and they are profoundly impressed.” - How to Survive Your Parents “Realize that you are not alone and that this is the reason you know what is wrong with you… Remain aware of your problem. Resist the temptation to struggle with it. Struggle indicates a lack of faith on your part, a belief that you still think you exist alone with your problem.” - How to Conquer Negative Emotions “Your honesty, becoming visible, sets you apart from disease-producing, soul-debilitating friendships. Being rejected and persecuted will awaken your need to seek comfort only from the God-source within. Your words will threaten word-sensitive egos and disturb an intellectual concept of world order in which they take comfort, and upon which they depend for survival. They will immediately try to confuse you, but even if your knees are knocking together, you must stand firm. You will feel weak and afraid, primarily because your former nature drew a great deal of confidence from being in agreement with those you now see to be your enemies. Prepare yourself, for the moment you speak up, you will break all the old bonds. When you withdraw ego-support from your ‘friends,’ they will withdraw their ego-support from you... Each new truth, openly championed, snips another subtle point of attachment and releases you from the unreasonable grip of friendships and passions.” - The Secret Power of Words “From the day you are born, you are bathed in a sea of negativity that sets you up progressively to respond to the wicked environment around you. At the beginning, you alone can perceive things as they really are, and this can make you believe that you are crazy and the world is really sane. With no one present to suggest anything that would cou

    Anxiety Meditation | Guided Meditation Testimonies

    Podcast Here Are you overwhelmed by chronic anxiety? Have anxiety therapies and treatments not cured you of your symptoms? Tired of merely coping with anxiety? Anxiety, whether temporary or long-term, has the same beginning. Most forms of anxiety disorder are caused by a deep-seated guilt that is being dealt with improperly. While there are countless meditation techniques that will help you cover up the anxiety and guilt, only one will help you expose and remove the original trauma that led to these symptoms. On this free podcast episode, you can hear from two different people who have used the free guided meditation technique to overcome stress and anxiety. Ray bought the book How To Conquer Negative Emotions at a garage sale due to anxiety he was feeling before taking a test. Nada was suffering from anxiety and called up meditation expert Roy Masters on the radio. These are only two out of thousands of testimonials that Roy hears from those who have benefited from the guided meditation. (Clip from episode: K4706 and K3694) This podcast is brought to you by the Foundation of Human Understanding: http://www.fhu.com Quotes regarding anxiety and meditation from the book How To Conquer Negative Emotions by Roy Masters: "Meditation will not immediately eliminate all your reactions, but it will eliminate your reactions to the existing resentment or fear-anxiety reactions to pressure. You see, resentment produces a debilitating physical conditioning. We resent our inferiority, fear and helplessness, but this only increases the sensitivity of the flesh to stress. After you begin to meditate, you must be patient with your symptoms; learn to experience the humiliation of fear without again resenting either the source or yourself. Once you have successfully resisted this temptation, you are free to observe your other anxieties out of existence. In this way, you will deal effectively with the underlying causes of any symptom. Once you have gone through a series of anxieties like this, you will eventually conquer your conditioned response to pressure completely and feel no response whatever." “Anxiety is not a bad thing. Don’t try to cope with anxiety. Wait; let it phase back into guilt—but don’t try to do anything about guilt either. Bear it without resentment until it phases back into an understanding of what you have done wrong or what you have failed to do right.” "BE STILL…AND KNOW the pain of anxiety—fears that need to be resolved. Wait to be fulfilled through the infilling of warmth that relieves and revives. Be aware of the tension and edginess caused by resentment. Observe body aches and needs; do not stifle your aching mind and body by reaching for outside comforts. Your needs will be met by the infilling, tingling warmth of God’s grace." ----- If you suffer deeply from the effects of stress, fear and pain, we recommend Roy Masters’ special meditation and advice pack: Overcoming Stress Fear and Pain.

    Is Meditation An Anger Management Activity? | Why Meditate?

    Is Meditation An Anger Management Activity? | Why Meditate?

    Podcast Here Does uncontrollable anger get you into trouble? Are you looking for a free anger management activity that will free you from rage, but not set you up to be a weakened coward? Most anger management activities and techniques available online merely teach you how to cope with your own anger. While this helps conceal your inability to deal with daily pressures, it does not help uncover the root of your problem. Anger is neither a proper nor healthy reaction to stressful situations. Anger is, in fact, the loser's response. The Be Still and Know Meditation technique is a free, simple, and direct approach for overcoming anger. Proper use of this free exercise will enable you to locate and eliminate the cause of your anger and stress. In this free podcast episode, Steve is beginning to notice how angry and resentful he has been throughout his life. Host Roy Masters explains how anger, resentment and hatred are all different degrees of the same emotional reaction. This free guided meditation technique brings one to not only see these negative sensations more clearly, but allows one to keep from being pulled into the endless stream of thoughts and feelings in the first place. In time anger, rage and anxiety will subside, and you may continue to live an enjoyable and successful life, free from guilt. (Clip from episode: K3695) This podcast is brought to you by the Foundation of Human Understanding: http://www.fhu.com Quotes regarding anger management from the book How Your Mind Can Keep You Well by Roy Masters: “You really ought not be annoyed inwardly or outwardly, not that you must suppress your anger. Observe your impatience, which you used as a means of getting ego-drive energy and for judging others. See the need to overlook and make allowances right at the moment, not because you have to, but because you want to.” “Animals respond to danger in one of two ways: they run, or they fight. When we become annoyed or irritated by some trivial thing and say or do nothing, we create an accumulating pressure to run (in animal ways). This is called fear, a wrong response from a human viewpoint. Because we do not know why we feel this way, we may seek to identify it with something in order to remedy it. That is why we are often afraid of many things without apparent reasons, like storms, driving a car, failure of any kind, crowds—especially crowds, because it was people who caused the anger in the beginning.” “Angry people often seem to be industrious individuals as they work off their surplus emotion on people or projects. A hostile person is not an industrious or brave person, however. All of us can accomplish much under the compulsion of fear or anger, but that accomplishment is unrewarding since the activity takes us farther away from our calm center. Its only intention is to make us look and feel right inside, but it never quite succeeds, no matter how dazzling our performance might appear to the on-looker.” “When we are upset, we repeat the same cycle of activity that originally created the fears. We could not be upset or frustrated if we had no vanity or concupiscent goals.” “From now on, just watch and observe calmly. As you recognize your anger patterns, merely observe your related weaknesses and resentments and allow them to pain you. Refrain from correcting your own faults. The stress of realizing our inability to make ourselves right will become repentance, and repentance stresses the compassion of the Father to grace us with the remedy.” ----- If you suffer deeply from the affects of anger and rage, we recommend the Overcoming Stress Fear and Pain Pack.

Actually....

Unlike previous reviewers, I found Roy Masters' meditation absolutely enthralling. Such simple advice is delivered with heartening, grandfatherly charm.
Further time invested revealed a pretty religious foundation to the principles described. I'm not religious, but I am spiritual with a 'small s' & a humanist with a 'big H' but had no problem relating at all. If you're reading this because your nerves are bad, I'd certainly give the free guided meditation episode a whirl. Good luck to you.
