Are humans really intelligent ?

Are humans really intelligent ? …power of the ego .

Hi all,

It’s been ages since my last post, busy learning about human ego,  the intelligence of the kingdom of plants and animals and it gets me thinking…...Are humans really intelligent , or are we driven by the power of our ego ?

Ego says “Mirror Mirror on the wall…..who really is the most intelligent of us all ?” 

The thing that most separates us from plants and animals in my humble opinion isn’t intelligence, it’s EGO!

Think about it. …..
🤔Plants can survive without humans , ( yet not without animals and insects) any yet we cannot survive without them……..plants literally give us the air we breathe.
This reminds me of the film “Avitar “ …our wonderful ego driven intellect tells us we get to control all life ….so we throw our power around and we forget that by controlling we are also destroying.
We have become so closed we forgot to “feel “ and “ tune in”. In our modern world , most humans have become reactionary creatures rather than responsive creatures ….maybe if we tuned out of our EGO based intellect and used that 6th sense …..well we might not be in quite the pickle we are in now !

🤔Plants have an extremely complex sensory system ( similar to our central nervous system in many ways ) and are capable of gathering infinite amounts of information about the world ( such as light detection, sensing harmful invaders and communication to other plants to defend or re-route growth direction). The brain of the plant kingdom is that amazing root structure.

🤔 Animals have super intelligent systems , for example many birds are able to locate seeds that they have buried the year before .  Their navigation and memory pinpoints , and is able to locate the seed to within millimetres and is able to detect locations of up to 30,000 seeds in up to 10,000 locations. This shows huge capacity for both mathematical calculation and a memory capacity far superior to the human ability ( I barely remember what I had for breakfast !).

🤔 Timeline shows us plants are about 450 million years old , and animals 640 million years old. We are quite young really in the evolution chain . I read a quote recently (Mary Midgley)
“ did Darwin pin up a paper warning himself to be careful when using the words higher and lower “ .

🤔 There is only one way that we have evolved to a greater perceived “ strength” against plants and animals in my humble opinion and that is our power to kill.
We are so highly EGO intelligent that we create guns to shoot animals ( and each other ) , we create poisons to damage plants, animals ( and each other ) , we torture animals ( and each other ) . Notice the theme (of each other) with all of these amazing intelligent powers we have …..makes you wonder whether we should redefine what intelligence really means !

How can I benefit from Meditation ?

How can I benefit from Meditation ?
What is Meditation all about ?

Today I decided to write a blog about the many amazing benefits of meditation as many of my clients have been asking me what meditation is all about.

There are so many different ways we can meditate, it really doesn’t have to be about sitting for hours in silence which can be extremely time consuming and hard to practice in the world we live in…..and this is really why we DO need meditation .

I teach meditation classes , not just on the mindful practice that meditation is known for , but also looking at guided meditations, chakra awareness , feeling energy for physical healing , Prana  breath work ( to name but a few techniques) .

The world we live in is gettting faster and busier and we need to relearn tools and techniques to allow us to be able to cope in the world.
If we do not counterbalance this fast pace of life that we all live in then we become seriously unbalanced which has a huge effect on our emotional and physical health….by which time it becomes then a colossal task to bring back that balance and it may take us years to overcome this obstacle.

I’m sure you have all heard many times that prevention is better than the cure and if we can approach meditation with this mindset then we are far more likely to achieve a sense of peace and lasting balance with ease.

Did you know that just 20 minutes of meditation nourishes your body in the same way that 4 hours of good sleep does…..so just 10 minutes = 2 hours of sleep.
So if you struggle to sleep then it’s a no brainer …..meditate!

Furthermore, it is relevant to note that  meditation also helps you to achieve a much better quality of sleep. So here is a list of some of the further benefits meditation offers for the MIND, BODY, and SPIRIT ( ENERGY, SOUL );

     MIND BENEFITS OF MEDITATION :
~ reduces monkey chatter
~ improves concentration
~ reduces mental stress
~ refreshes and rejuvenates the mind
~ calms the mind
~ improves thought processing and clarity
~ improves ability to effectively communicate

    BODY BENEFITS OF MEDITATION:
~ reduces anxiety ( stabilises adrenal function)
~ Lowers high blood pressure
~ reduces depression ( improves serotonin)
~ increases immune function
~ reduces tension headaches
~ increases energy levels
~ improves mood swings ( balances the pituitary and increases seratonin )
~ balances pain receptors ( as oxytocin releases )
~ helps insomnia ( by balancing the pineal gland)
~ decrease muscle and joint problems as relaxation improves and stress decreases

     SPIRIT / SOUL / ENERGY BENEFITS OF MEDITATION:
~ creative abilities improve
~ intuition is developed
~ overall sense of peace increased
~ anxiety decreases
~ feelings of connectedness to others increases
~ problems are dealt with easily
~ negative emotions disappear easily
~ harmony and balance is achieved
~ emotions are more balanced
~ ability to live and embrace the moment ( not living in the past or future)
~ focussed awareness
~ expanded state of Consiousness
~ peace of mind

Effortless transition from being something to merging with the infinite and recognizing yourself as an inseparable part of the whole cosmos
In a meditative state, you are in a space of vastness, calmness and joy and this is what you emit into the environment, bringing harmony to the Creation/planet.
Meditation can bring about a true personal transformation. As you learn more about yourself, you’ll naturally start discovering more about yourself.
How to get meditation benefits

So in summary, to experience the benefits of meditation, regular practice is necessary and as you begin it can help if you join a class whilst you practice to share the space.
If you practice at home too …..It takes only a few minutes every day…..once you get into the practice I’m sure (like me ) you will find that meditation is the best part of your day!
