When we changed the format at our Advanced Workshops into weeklong events, we also introduced outdoor challenge activities. Some of those activities included rappelling down buildings and running the gauntlet of elevated obstacle courses. The purpose of these activities is to challenge people to overcome their fears and unconscious programs by applying “the formula” with their eyes open (instead of with their eyes closed in meditation) in order to demonstrate brain and heart coherence during life’s defining moments. In Niagara Falls, New York, however, we decided to present our students with an internal challenge. We called it “A Day in No Time.”
“A day in no time” is an opportunity for people to spend the entire day in meditation. The purpose of this exercise is to help our students go as deep as they can—to keep connecting deeper to the field and to keep practicing the art of mastering getting beyond themselves. On the third day of the Niagara Falls Advanced Workshop, our students participated in the first “a day in no time.”
I was very impressed as the student body did incredibly well. To be able to sit in meditation all day set them up for the rest of the week; after all, if they could spend an entire day meditating in no time, then, theoretically, the rest would be relatively easy.
The meditation was broken up by several optional breaks where people could use the bathroom or grab a bite to eat. No one had to stay in the meditation the entire time, but, remarkably, many people sat in stillness for the whole day.
During the first two hours, as usual, we had people lock into their heart center and practice the breath, followed by spending several hours practicing connecting to the unified field. The goal was for people to really get beyond their identity, the people and problems in their lives, and take their attention off of all objects (cell phones, computers, etc.) to become no body, no one, no thing, no where, in no time.
The practice was to continue putting their attention on energy and frequency instead of matter and things. To focus on energy and information is to open our focus and broaden our awareness. This is called a divergent focus. A convergent focus, or narrow focus, is when we place our attention on our bodies, as well as people, objects, places, matter, and/or time. This challenge activity ultimately begged the question—how much of your waking day do you place your attention on matter and how much do you place on energy and information?
According to our research, the side effects of our efforts create significant brain and heart coherence. By placing our attention on the unified field (whose signature is wholeness, oneness, and order), and by connecting to it with our awareness, our biology becomes more whole, more unified, and more orderly—and that oneness is reflected in our bodies.
Because this is so relevant for so many people, we are going to be doing it again in the future. Are you up for the challenge?
