  • The problem

    Life is not only full of challenges, but it is also full of lots of well worn ‘solutions’.

    There is an apparent way of doing things. And less understood, but much more influential than this; there is an ingrained way of thinking behind much of the doing.

    Without realising it, cultural paradigms limit our ability to see beyond the ordinary way of doing things. They represent the extent of your horizons, and so all conscious thought takes place within these boundaries.

    But as Albert Einstein once said, “no problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”

  • How it affects you

    We need to look beyond the boundaries of our ingrained patterns of thinking, and find new solutions to new problems, and indeed old ones that haven’t been satisfactorily dealt with by more standard responses.

    There is also the issue of peer pressure. Even when someone within a group is thinking ‘outside the box’, it may be that the groupthink mentality is so strong, that person may not feel confident enough to voice their ideas. Or, if they do, they’ll do it timidly, preventing the idea from taking full flight. And of course, there may be resistance to the idea from others who want to ‘play it safe.’

    As a result, lateral thinking often gets crowded out, and mediocrity wins over innovation. This mediocre output is merely dressing up old ideas.

    But in a world of challenges, many of which are significant, what we really need is to be able to think laterally and clearly and come up with completely new ways of doing things.

  • How can Beeja help?

    One of the unique qualities of Beeja meditation is its ability to help us access our subconscious, which is a much broader intelligence than our conscious mind.

    By putting ourselves into ‘the zone’ on a regular basis, we begin to develop a capability to see beyond the minutiae of life and beyond the boundaries that we have built for ourselves, as people, families and societies.

    The result of all this is that we begin to consider ideas and propositions that are beyond our cultural norms.

    The meditation frees our subconscious to fully consider really innovative ideas.

    At a conscious level, our prefrontal cortex – an essential agent of our creative thinking – becomes much more activated, so on both a conscious and subconscious level we are thinking differently. 

    In addition, the high levels of brain state coherence give us more and more ‘eureka’ moments; where great ideas seem to present themselves fully formed in your awareness.

    In the Beeja understanding, it is merely a product of your nervous system being attuned enough to pick up the ideas and energy floating in the unified field of consciousness, much like a radio picks up the radio waves that are floating through the air.

    Importantly, Beeja meditation also boosts your confidence and self-esteem, allowing you to express your ideas with conviction, and lead people with your vision.

    The greater brain coherence also helps you to articulate your ideas better, allowing you to be better understood.

    It also helps you become more adaptable to new ideas from other quarters, which is essential when collaborating on projects, and this often tends to find itself reciprocated when it comes to ideas that have come through you.

    Overall, Beeja meditation has been shown to enhance creativity more than any other cognitive quality, and one of its stand out features is the significant positive impact on originality of thought.

I've noticed that I’m no longer ruled by emotions – I can see when I’m angry or frustrated without being in that feeling.”
