I just came back after sitting 10 days Vipassana meditation - and already starting to sit 2 hours a day! Before going for it, I had been quite active in IQ, and got to know about Getting into the Vortex Meditation here. I love to buy it, but before that I love to know in brief about it - so that I can imagine how I can carry to sort of meditation technique together. I will be thankful for your explanation - as I have been for the information I get here.
The GITV meditations are firstly a guided meditation ( meditation with the aid of a guide, the guide being Abraham) as opposed to Vissapana where you meditate in silence.
There are 4 guided meditations, 15 minutes in length, and each covering a different topic. Relationships, General Well-Being, Physical Well-Being and Financial Abundance. There is also an extra track called Mostly Meditation Music which is good for practising the breathing technique.
The breathing is controlled / deliberate, as opposed to Vissapana where you just observe the breath without controlling it. You breathe in time with the music which is orchestrated around a 3- beat / 5-beat rhythmic pattern. Inhale for 3 beats / exhale for 5 beats.
The breathing technique is very energising and because there are no gaps in it, this helps to anchor a part of your awareness in the present moment. I still use this daily.
Here is a sample.
In addition to being guided and controlling your breathing as Satori pointed out above, the guided meditation by Abraham Hicks also gradually mould or elevate your vibration in relation to the specific guided meditation topic (such as physical well being or relationships etc) you are listening to every time you meditate.
Therefore, you will gradually start to feel better about that particular subject as the meditation gradually makes your resistance subside.
