Avoiding Meditation Practices. This blog post reveals what I’ve learned through researching the impact of meditation on people today. Energetic literacy shockers.
Sadly, I’ll also share news of corruption among many of today’s most popular meditation teachers.
Admittedly, this is serious business. I’m making it only after decades of reading auras of clients. As well as researching the auras of many prominent meditation teachers.
Friends don’t let friends… trust in spiritual practices that may harm at least as much as they help.
Why Do I Now Recommend Avoiding Meditation?
Such a controversial shout-out!
What got me started was simple: Hearing somebody I care about say, “I’m thinking of learning to meditate.” Somebody with a high state of consciousness.
Why Else Do I Recommend Avoiding Meditation?
Because clients sometimes ask me to research loved ones who have begun meditation. Do those sweet spiritual seekers receive the promised results? Definitely not.
Incidentally, maybe you’re wondering. How can you research the impact of meditation on someone you know?
- First, develop Stage 3 Energetic Literacy.
- Then find a photo of Joe or Gladys before starting meditation. Read a bunch of chakra databanks.
- Following that, find a photo of that same person after meditating for a few weeks. Read those same chakra databanks.
- Oh, yeah, let’s not forget this last step: Bring tissues.
Recently I did this kind of research for one of my clients. What was going on with his son? The results were just heartbreaking.
And these results were quite consistent with plenty of similar research I’ve done for other Energy Spirituality clients.
Avoiding Meditation Is Now a Way to Protect Yourself
Today’s meditators are at risk. Since, rather than gain a strong sense of self, many are losing it. Living now, in The Age of Awakening, the significance of meditation is different. It’s all too common for meditators to live in spiritual addiction or, even worse, extreme spiritual addiction.
Note: To get the most from today’s article, might I suggest. First read the earlier articles in this series:

Avoiding Meditation Now Means Avoiding a Gateway to Spiritual Addiction
What’s one problem with meditating now? How long to meditate.
Traditional practices go with instructions to meditate for hours. Even 20 minutes twice a day is too long. (More typical of the practices taught by the great world gurus, during the 100 years before this Age of Awakening.)
Before reading this article, did you know about the perils of over-meditating now? A.k.a. “Too much Technique Time.”
Now that we’re in The Age of Awakening, the maximum amount of time for meditation is 20 minutes, tops.
In this blog post, I’m not going to try to explain how I reached this conclusion. Or what to do about it. Since I spent 3 1/2 years writing “The New Strong.” It’s crammed with info to help you. To get an idea, take a look at this Annotated Table of Contents.
All this could be required reading for anybody who wishes to meditate, or used to meditate.
Teaching Tale #1. Spiritual Addiction in Just 2 Weeks
In session with my new client Gladys, near the start, I did the usual Skilled Empath Merge. What did I find? Gladys had developed quite a case of spiritual addiction.
Turned out, two weeks before she’d begun the Transcendental Meditation Program (TM, in the AM and PM, 20 minutes each sitting.)
Just two weeks!
A very down-to-earth gal, that Gladys. I doubt that she’d had that problem before.
Teaching Tale #2. Spiritual Addiction in Just 3 Weeks
As for my client Joe, I knew him well. Off and on, he’d been having Energy Spirituality sessions with me for 15 years!
We’d done some Energy Spirituality Energy HEALING early this month. Then he came back for more.
Only what did I find when I did the usual Skilled Empath Merge. Wham! He’d moved into Spiritual Addiction. Quite a developed case, too.
What had Joe been differently? Only one thing. TM. Just three weeks of 40 min. a day of meditation and ouchers!
Avoiding Meditation? Heck, Teaching Meditation Used to Be My Life
From 1970 until 1986, I was an avid teacher of TM. (For juicy details, see my memoir, “Bigger than All the Night Sky.”)
Never would I have thought it could actively cause harm. Unfortunately, now it can.
Meditators today can love their lifestyle because all the promises attached to their “Movement.” Also many love meditating because afterward they feel calm. What don’t they notice? They’re also spacing out. Like a pothead without having to smoke or vape weed! Akin to the Learn Nothing tourist who got herself lost in a forest, then giggled. (See this article, Comments #12-18.)
The space-out effects of meditation are considerably stronger today. But that’s not the only reason I’m sounding a warning in today’s blog post.
Sadly, Also, Avoiding Meditation Now Protects You from a Gateway to EXTREME Spiritual Addiction
Why is that? Because many spiritual teachers are now in extreme spiritual addiction. (To understand why, think “opportunistic astral entities in the early years of The Age of Awakening.” What, that doesn’t make sense? One more reason to read “The New Strong.”)
Many leaders of meditation movements have grown corrupted. Especially teachers of Traditional Enlightenment.
For instance, I’ve read the auras of many Non-Duality Teachers. Maybe a dozen? Every single one was now in extreme spiritual addiction. It sickened me to keep researching. So I didn’t go all the way through the list.
However, you can nominate any spiritual teacher you like. I’ll do an aura reading for free — a summary, about that person’s state of consciousness.
First, please look up this Nomination List to see whether I’ve already researched that person.
Then simply comment at the Enlightenment Life List, supplying the information requested. As specified in that blog post.
What if the public figure you’re interest in was nominated but doesn’t appear on my List? (BTW, you can also check my personal alphabetical list of folks in Enlightenment can help you compare.) That teacher isn’t in Enlightenment. Often, these days, there’s extreme spiritual addiction.
I hate calling out these Enlightenment teachers. Or anybody else who’s been a casualty of problems in these early years of The Age of Awakening. Just to give you an idea of the impact, here’s a list of…
10 Meditating Celebrities in Extreme Spiritual Addiction
- Katy Perry, who practices Transcendental Meditation.
- Madonna, who practices TM.
- Eva Mendes, who does TM.
- Oprah Winfrey is “sold out to TM,” as we initiators used to put it. (As a compliment.)
- Ellen DeGeneres, also doing Transcendental Meditation.
- Gisele Bündchen practices Anusara yoga and meditates.
- Clint Eastwood has done Transcendental Meditation for 40 years.
- Kobe Bryant starts his day with mindfulness meditation.
- Jerry Seinfeld says that he has done TM for most of his adult life.
- Gwyneth Paltrow has begun TM quite recently.
What else do they have in common, besides meditation? That consciousness lifestyle problem, extreme spiritual addiction.
Of course, the majority of celebrities? They’re doing much, much better.
And I know of a couple of long time TMers who are on my Enlightenment Life List. So they’re not just safely meditating. They’ve made it into the goal, what I call “Traditional Enlightenment.”
However, the ones I’m thinking of learned long, long before 12/21/12. And maybe it makes a difference that they’re renunciates, not householders.
If You Still Wish to Meditate, How to Protect Yourself
Let’s make this concluding section of this post into at Q & A. Helping you to avoid becoming a spaced-out meditator.
Q. What if you’re faithful to a meditation technique you’ve been doing for a long time.
If you were initiated before 12/21/12, very likely, your instructor was doing fine. But it’s still, I would urge you to book a session with me, Energy Spirituality Enlightenment Coaching. Probably our centerpiece for the session will be research, doing a Consciousness Positioning Consult.
Q. What if you’re considering a new kind of meditation? (Or two. Or three.)
A. Definitely invest in a session of Energy Spirituality Energy READING. On the day of your appointment, please email me a headshot of each meditation instructor you’re considering. And if it’s a large movement, don’t just send that picture. Send a photo of the person who would be your teacher.
Maybe I’ll just research that teacher’s aura. Surely that will tell you about consequences of following that path.
And maybe we’ll also do some Soul Thrill Aura Research® to provide detailed insights on the impact of each type of meditation on you.
Q. But what if you’re feeling pressured to meditate? Like, with the common online dating question today, “How many days a week do you meditate?”
A. Remind yourself that you’re living in The Age of Awakening. Read all four posts in this series.
Then don’t feel shy about being a pioneer. Proudly live as an early adapter. You’re wise to today’s new ways to gain support of nature. Following today’s new set of rules.
Q. What if you want to solve the problem of the self, and you’ve always heard that meditation is the way to go.
A. So true — before The Age of Awakening. Now? Quite the opposite.
