Whether we are aware of it or not, we aim for a peaceful mind. However, it is the nature of our mind to blow from one thing to another. When our mind is easily influenced and disturbed, this creates internal stress and costs us peace.
WHY WE MEDITATE
Meditation is a potent modality that develops an inner space for clarity and truth. It dissipates the tendencies we have to fluctuate between the extremes of excitement and despondency, elevation and deflation, expectation and disappointment. Through a consistent meditation practice we find our way to being peaceful, even in the most difficult circumstances.
Beyond the substantial benefits meditation creates for the mind-body physiology, the greatest gift of meditation is the sense of calm and inner peace it brings into your daily life.
When you meditate, you go beyond the mind’s noisy chatter into an entirely different place: the silence of a mind that is not imprisoned by the past or the future. This is important because silence is the birthplace of happiness.
Silence is where we get our bursts of inspiration, our tender feelings of compassion and empathy, and our sense of love. These are all delicate emotions, and the chaotic roar of the internal dialogue easily drowns them out. But when you discover the silence in your mind, you no longer have to pay undue attention to all the random images that trigger worry, anger, and pain.
When you meditate on a regular basis, all of your thoughts, actions, and reactions are infused with a little more love and mindful attention. The result is a deeper appreciation and a profound awareness of the divine quality of existence.

Soul Involution Sessions with Doug
The path of the soul has two primary trajectories. The first is the Evolutionary process wherein the soul takes on ever more complex forms until it reaches the human form, within which it is possible to know itself as God/Spirit. Once the human form is gained, the Involution process is where the soul turns back inward and begins its journey to know itself- to see itself as God, to know the God state which it always was, but was unconscious of it.
The journey of the soul to reach this knowing is a long and winding road. Doug’s Soul Involution Sessions are a means to assist and speed up this journey, to take a few bends out of the road.
These sessions are about bringing the awareness, and thus integration, to all levels of your being. The physical body of material existence, subtle body of energy where the emotional nature is experienced, to the mental realm of ideas, beliefs, ego and habits, to the the soul level which encompasses these three as well as the fourth state that is referred to using words like eternal, one, infinite, unity, Self.
Each session is very unique, so a detailed description of what occurs can’t be given. Each session is an adventure into the depths of yourself. However, some general themes that have arisen in sessions include- connecting with inner plane masters and teachers who work with you at the soul level through many lifetimes, soul travelling to worlds or planes that your soul calls home, removing karma that is allowed to be transmuted at this time, looking more deeply at the karmas that care currently playing out, giving the soul a boost to begin its next phase of growth, connecting to relevant past and future lifetimes, connecting to souls from past lives for integration or clearing of old energy.
All of these possible events are about one thing, and this is the real goal of these sessions; to experience the truth and bliss of your true nature, unhindered by the veils of body, mind and ego. It is my aim to give you an experience of yourself that is more expansive and deep than your normal experience of yourself.
The truth of your being, the desire for which is the root of every single externalized desire you have ever had, will be brought into sharper focus. Only when you experience, not just believe, but experience the truth of yourself, will the perplexities of life be smoothed out, will the confusion be cleared, will you experience peace and contentment. Beliefs and ideas will always fall short of satisfying this deepest of desires- you must experience the truth of your eternal nature.
How these sessions unfold is completely up to your soul and your soul teachers. You lie on a massage table fully clothed and I hold your head in my hands to open the space. I am a conduit that opens the door and brings a voice to what is occurring during the session. I create the energetic space, but your soul and teachers determine what happens. The process is a wonderful alchemy.
Charge per session is $150. To contact Doug for a session you can reach him at 805-410-2230 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
