I (nearly) wrote the songs

Do you have to be smart to write songs ?

It's a very fine line ...

Does anyone here practice TM ?
.... Transcendental Meditation!

I remember this from the time of The Beatles but I was never too interested... I tried it when I later got into Yoga and other 'new age' pursuits like aromatherapy and reflexology.... but I was useless at blanking my busy mind :(

Lately, however, I have been thinking meditation might be good for me as I'm feeling undue stress about nothing in particular - if I could achieve anything approaching 'enlightenment' I'd like to have another try.

A Maharishi or qualified therapist will charge a fortune, with no guarantee of success. So I tried a few free video sites (there are many) I came to realize that some worked and some didn't. The ones that worked were great and I 'lost myself' to utter bliss for a short, very short while.

The secret for me was 2 things - The vocal presentation... and the music. I like the ambient, traditional Asian music and a gentle, low voice. Some practitioners were obviously amateurs, some had grating voices, some rushed too much.

I think I will try to make a TM recording never the less, I will enjoy doing that and maybe I'll try it out on some guinea pigs at IMP.

If you are into TM or have considered being a Guru of anything mind/spirit related, I'd love to read your stories!

I've done TM for years and wrote a song about it called History.

I got pretty good at it but also scared at how far and long I cold go.

It use to give me visions of the future and I learned fast not to tell anyone but my Wife.
I still get the visions but don't do the TM much anymore. Like I said, it scared me a little.

Wow Steve, I had no idea it could have that level of effects, perhaps it depends on how susceptible people are to mind suggestion or maybe other medication, I don't know but it makes me think maybe i don't know what I'm doing - I thought it was supposed to be a peace bringing thing

Me too!

Ok
I'll elaborate a bit. When I first started doing TM it was in the 70's. I had read a book about it and figured I'd give it a try.
The first time I did it I was able to hover over the roof of my house which was pretty cool!

I kept doing it for about three months just hovering so I decided to try to go further.
I was able to skim along the streets and see everything going on. I figured I would see how high up I could go.

That's when it got a little scary. I went up fast and far! Really far!
While I was in this state, I had my first vision.

I saw one of my friends sitting in a white bathtub and then saw a lightning bolt come down and hit him in the foot. Then I came out of it abruptly.

I called his house and they said he was in the hospital because someone shot at him while he was getting in his new white car. They hit him in the foot!

So I had unlocked something but to this day I'm not sure what?

From that day things were different.

I was with a friend and he stopped for gas and I said I'll pump it for you.
Ok I get back in the car and he says. I don't know what you did out there but my gas gauge that was broken for months works now!

I go to another friends house and I needed to use the phone so I asked and the girl said it was broke but I had the phone in my hand and had a dial tone and called who I wanted to call and hung up.

She came over and said did you just get someone on that phone?
I said yes.
She picked up the phone and it was dead.

I've had too many of these things happen to post here but you can probably see why it freaked me out a little.

I still get visions to this day with no meditation involved and have not done TM for years now.

That is so very weird, you must have been channeling into some powerful alien force somehow - I can understand why you wouldn't want to go there again but WOW! those are some really freaky co-incidences/stories

I've never had any visionary happenings - but I do have a strange knack of starting things that have supposedly broken, I have started cars with flat batteries and broken TVs, got lights to come on etc.

I've had a few premonitions too. I told my daughter I had a strong feeling she would have twins (one of each).... a few YEARS later she did! I also have a way of judging timings (of races or journeys) And if someone asks me the time I can tell them to the minute without seeing a clock.

That's pretty cool Verity!

My last story.

I was watching TV at my parents house. Some mini series, don't remember what one. The TV was a color TV but really on it's last leg.

So the TV would just get all messed up on and off and was barely watchable.

I got mad and yelled I can't take this TV anymore! A loud crack came out of the TV and the picture went to perfect! It stayed that way for three years before it finally died. LOL!

Anyhow, have a nice day.

I've had quite a few " out of body " experiences ".

I would lay on my back, close my eyes and wait for that full body and mind relaxation zone to kick in.

Next thing I knew, I'd be hovering, looking down at my body. Then I would fly out of the room, out of the apartment and out of the building and so on, only to find the way back to my body.

What amazed me was the fact that I was always conscious about what I was doing.

That's cool Norm!

Do you still do it?

Maybe we should all TM tonight and zip around. I was always conscious too.

I never looked down at my own body though. I was up and out too fast.
