Overview

65 dynamic meditation techniques for manifesting your desires and multiplying the power of your mind

• Contains meditation practices from both Eastern and Western traditions

• Includes proven techniques for increasing mental clarity, replacing negative behaviors that have become habits, and realizing your desires

Matrix Meditations offers dynamic meditation practices derived from both Eastern and Western spiritual traditions to develop intuition, manifest desires, and empower the self by forging a strong heart-mind relationship. The authors provide a systematic 16-week program that is designed to develop heightened awareness and deeper states of consciousness for readers with any level of meditation experience, moving from lessons in classical Eastern techniques to advanced levels that employ methods not found elsewhere.

Four key forms of meditation are used in the book: concentration, mindfulness, contemplation, and adventures in awareness. These are applied to specific practices that range from improving mental clarity and memory to replacing self-limiting patterns of thinking and behaving in which you may be trapped. Each of the 65 meditations offers a doorway into a different chamber of your consciousness and an opportunity to learn more about your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual nature. The matrix can also be used as an oracle to guide you to the most valuable meditation you need for the present moment—be it love, balance, conflict, dreams, renewal, or celebration. These meditation techniques are designed to create healing and harmony between the mind and emotions, allowing you to attain not only greater financial and emotional security and well-being but also life-long spiritual growth.

Editorial Reviews

Stanley Krippner
“Victor and Kooch Daniels have studied dozens of meditative disciplines, creating a systems approach in which each of their readers will be able to find a suitable path. In today’s troubled world, navigating the sea of consciousness can be a hazardous task. Matrix Meditations provides a trustworthy guide for avoiding the hazards and enjoying the ride.”
John Harricharan
“Matrix Meditations takes the complex and makes it simple, with one thought in mind—to show the reader that despair can be changed into hope and tragedy can be transformed into triumph. It gives readers truly practical methods for solving their worst problems and thus achieving happiness and success. Magical and mystical at the same time, Matrix Meditations is a must read!”
Brad Steiger
"In Matrix Meditations, Victor Daniels and Kooch N. Daniels present their marvelous 16-week program for developing the Mind-Heart connection. These two experienced teachers present a method of honest communication with your inner self, and their techniques demonstrate how you may begin to listen to both your head and your heart—perhaps for the first real time in your life. After you have encountered the 65 cells in the Matrix of Consciousness, you may find that you will have to release some of your most cherished old concepts and ideas—but the good news is that you will also be able to free yourself from those stubborn roadblocks on the path to realizing your dreams and your true mission in life."
Robert Sachs
"In Matrix Meditations, Victor and Kooch Daniels survey the landscape of the world wisdom traditions and present an unbiased and well-researched book that synthesizes and presents in very direct language what seers from all over the world teach about the mind and meditation. Matrix Meditations can serve as both a reference and guide to those seeking greater peace and the human desire to be of help to others. Whether you already have a meditation practice or are just embarking on such, it will be a source that you will read, practice, and treasure."

Joy: Happiness, Bliss, and Peak Experiences

The Sun in Your Heart

Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.
— Abraham Lincoln

You can discover and let go of ways you make yourself unhappy and replace them with thoughts and acts that bring you great joy. Every language has many words for feeling good: joy, enjoyment, happiness, delight, pleasure, cheer, gladness, bliss, and ecstasy. Just hearing these words is reassuring. We’d all love to be able to go to the store and buy happiness, but it’s not for sale. You have to find it within. Happiness can be momentary or enduring. You feel it when you obtain something you want or when something good comes your way unexpectedly. You also feel happy when you’re doing something enjoyable or worthwhile. And you probably feel happy when you bring others happiness. In Swami Ramakrishananda Puri’s words, “Happiness is like perfume. We can’t pour it on someone else without getting a few drops on ourselves.” But for many people, it’s all too easy to get locked into routines so hectic that they leave little room for happiness. You can, however, increase your ability to be happy, or even joyful. Vietnamese Buddhist monk and meditation teacher Thich Nhat Hanh suggests using the metaphor of watering flowers: “Cultivating joy means to . . . organize our daily lives so that the positive seeds are watered every day, and the negative seeds are not watered.”2 How do you water seeds of joy? A good starting point is to notice your thoughts that contribute to making you feel bad and move your attention away from them. In their place, you can amplify thoughts that make you feel good and act in ways that help you feel optimistic instead of pessimistic. Also, notice whether you set limiting conditions for letting yourself feel good. If so, you can let go of those conditions and become more accepting of being in each moment. Observe when you’re tight and tense—since it’s hard to feel good then—and use whatever tools you know of to relax. We can learn something about watering seeds of joy from Gestalt therapist Stella Resnick, who had a thriving psychotherapy practice, a hectic life, and pervasive feelings of dissatisfaction. “I did yoga,” she writes. “I meditated. I exercised. I became a vegetarian. Why wasn’t I happy?” At the age of thirty-four, she closed her practice and moved to a house in the country where she lived alone for a year, read Thoreau, and contemplated her life. She discovered “how little I knew about how to be happy on a daily basis. I knew how to drive myself to succeed. I knew how to criticize myself. . . . But I didn’t know how to take on a day and enjoy it. . . . I suddenly realized: It isn’t enough to know what you are doing wrong. You have to . . . learn how to . . . enjoy your life—moment by moment and day by precious day.” The following meditation can help sow seeds of increased receptivity to joyful states of mind.

YOUR SPECTRUM OF ENJOYMENT

Remember large and small events that have brought you great pleasure, happiness, or joy. Think about pleasant events in your recent past. Then think back to your childhood, your teenage years, and your adulthood prior to the recent past and recall your most enjoyable times. Finally, contemplate potential enjoyments that you seldom or never allow yourself. When your recollections slow to a trickle, scan through those old and recent memories to see which sources of enjoyment are an active part of your life today and which are not. (For instance, perhaps when you were a teenager you spent pleasant, lazy afternoons with friends, but now you never do.) In your mind’s eye, survey the range of enjoyable experiences that you allow yourself. Then shift the spotlight of your attention to experiences that lie outside that range. Are there past pleasurable experiences that you’d like to make part of your life now? Are there opportunities for enjoying life that you’d like to allow yourself more often than you do? Is there something you’d like to try that you’ve never done? Finally, choose one neglected source of enjoyment that you’d like to allow yourself to do this week—and make a commitment to do so.


Variations in Technique

As in the above technique, recall various memories of happy moments. Now focus on just one or two of your most meaningful events. Take a few more minutes to reflect on the feelings and sensations you experienced in these happy moments. Enlarge these feelings from past happiness and let them saturate your present awareness. They live inside you. At any time, you can recall them by remembering the moments in which they arose.

Points in the Process
Contributing to others’ joy or happiness can increase your own. Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha, Lao-Tzu, Confucius, and all the other great prophets and saints had this in common: They recognized that finding your own happiness, joy, or bliss is just one step on the path to self-realization. It’s still attachment to ego: “I am the one who must be happy. I am the one who must be saved.” The next step is to help others. Buddha used this metaphor: Once we’ve built a small boat and crossed the river from samsara (illusion, or your mind going around in circles) to nirvana (in which we discard illusion and live in abiding clarity and joy), the next step is to give up hanging out in bliss and go back across the river to the realm of toil and tears where most people live. There we can build a larger boat to ferry others across. He called one who does this a bodhisattva.

    Matrix Meditations, a way to better your life!

    The Matrix Meditations, by Daniels and Daniels, supplies the reader with a multitude of options to help run one's life. Every cell contains a way to cope the situations of life through meditations. The best part about the books is that since there are so many cells there will defiantly be something in there to help improve your personal quality of life. Personally, the breathing exercises were the best for me. If you take this book and utilize it as a place to go for when you are in doubt or stressed it will a huge effect on your life.

    ACCESIBLE AND WISE

    GREAT book! This is the first time I have ever attempted formally meditating, and this book has been a very pleasant and easy to read introduction, nonetheless will undoubtedly provide insight for even those experienced in meditation. It has given me a great reference for spiritual matters, and I have personally experienced transformaion in the way I view myself and experience life.

    It is divided up into short "cells" covering topics of value among all spiritual traditions, as well as the authors personal anectdotes. I love that it provided succinct wisdom from diverse spiritual traditions on that subject. At the end of the chapters are guides on different meditation techniques (body posture, walking meditation, mudras, breathing patterns, etc.) which usually incorporate the chapter topic. My favorite was the figure 8 breathing. The book can be read sequentially or you can flip to any chapter.

    Overall the author has a very inclusive, gentle, humane tone that makes the information highly accessible. Your mind and soul will eat up the quick wisdom like candy for the soul.

    Worth the 17 dollars..

    This is one of the FEW books that I have been required to read for my psychology courses that I have actually enjoyed. The layout of the book is simple to follow and understand. Each cell provides you with a different topic to concentrate on, and an appropriate meditation to correlate with it. Each issue being discussed is completely applicable to anyone's life. They use practical wording, and therefore do NOT come off as being pretentious by using unnecessary terminology that may not be known by everyone. This book is meant to be read by "everyday people, with everyday issues." Even after I wrap up my class, I plan on continuing to use this book as a daily meditation aid. I highly suggest buying this book. It will change your life, or at least the way you view it!

There are all sorts of different issues that people may have and meditation that go with them. Its really important to stick with the meditations if you truly want help. There are different activities to keep your mind going and they are very useful in your everyday life.

    Quick read, yet greatly effective!

    Matrix Meditations suprises the reader right from opening the book that this is no ordinary text book. The chapters are divided into short "cells" which signify the different aspects of meditation and self reflections. This book is great for those who are constantly on-the-go, the chapters/cells take an average of 5minutes to read yet are effective enough to remember and pratice throughout the day!

    Matrix Meditations

    Matrix Meditations: A 16-week Program for Developing the Mind-Heart Connection by Victor Daniels and Kooch N. Daniels is a necessary tool for anyone who either wants to try out meditation for the first time or someone who has used meditation throughout their life. It has something for everyone. The book consists of 10 chapters and 64 "Cells." Each cell of the Matrix, as stated in the book, "is like a doorway- a portal that leads to something you can think about and turn over in your mind, and also to specific practice of activity (pg.19)." The cells cover many subjects, from Breath and Balance, to Apology and Unity. This book teaches more than meditation, it also teaches righteousness, respect, and courage. Every cell in the book can relate to your every day life and help you reflect on it, leading to endless possibilities of personal growth and development.

    A very informative, enjoyable read

    As a student of psychology myself, it is important for me to be well grounded, and to be able to understand myself. This is difficult for any person to do, yet 'Matrix Meditations' provides an easy to read and enjoyable step by step process to self discovery and self improvement. Each chapter is highly informative and eye opening, and really makes you think. There is also a lot of information on meditation, which can be helpful for beginners or people who have been meditating for a while. I have to say that overall I highly recommend this book to anybody.

    Highly Recommended

    I highly recommend reading Matrix Mediations. Using the book for a psychology course, I actually enjoyed doing the weekly reading and found myself using it outside of class. The way the book is formatted makes it easy to read and skip around when you want to focus on a certain topic. Topics covered in the cells include many issues that we encounter in everyday life, such as patients, trust, love, and many more. Matrix Mediations pulls you into the book. I feel as though I am having a discussion with the authors, rather than just reading. The book teaches you varies ways to mediate and keeps you involved while reading. It has helped me find ways to take time out of my day and mediate and clear my head. This book is great for everyone and will leave you wanting to read more!
