How to Eliminate Headaches and Migraines using Meditation

Mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR) has become mainstream in alternative medicine because its practice has proven to be effective in reducing migraine headaches in clinical situations using integrative medicine. The proof of the effectiveness of MBSR is among the latest news items at Meditation / QiGong Trends around the World. Here are a few examples:

  • Meditation for Migraines? | Elevated Existence Magazine (blog)
  • Meditation May Benefit Those Who Suffer From Migraines | HCPLive
  • Migraine Relief through Meditation Could Help Millions | PNC Voice
  • These articles point the way to stress reduction as a keystone in relieving migraine headaches while the method of mindfulness serves as the key.

    Mindfulness is a simple method that has existed as long as meditation because meditation begins with mindfulness; it is a simple because all we’re doing is focusing our attention on one vital function at a time within our bodies. Since our breathing is most vital, our attention begins there.

    The mindfulness meditation method I’m sharing here is a combination of methods that fit together like hand in glove. These methods are by Thomas Nardi who I first read in the 1980’s The Mind in the Martial Arts: A Key to Winning, Stewart Swerdlow, who served in esoteric government experiments in the 1980’s, and Gerald O’Donnell, a former financial advisor who also served in esoteric government experiments in the 1980’s.

    First, we relax using what I like to call the HealingMindN Meditation Posture. The posture in itself helps to relieve stress and induce relaxation. You can download the guide for helping you into this posture at Mind Body Medicine. Although this guide is small, I include a lot of theory, so if you want to skip the theory, here are the seven essential steps:

    HealingMindN Meditation Posture

    1. Breathe deeply and naturally. Remember to take deep, natural, slow breaths only through the nose towards the solar plexus as you perform each relaxation step.
    2. Hold your back in an upright posture. If you must lay down, you can use a pillow under
      your back to hold a naturally straight posture.

    3. Relax your shoulders. Shrug them first to identify the tension, then relax. Repeat if necessary.
    4. Hold your head up, loosely. Feel as if your head is supported by a string from above. Your head is upright, but feels free and moves slightly as if it is floating above water.
    5. Relax your vision. Relax your focus as if gazing blankly along a distant horizon of the ocean.
    6. Relax your jaw. Allow your jaw to relax by letting it drop slightly.
    7. Place the tip of your tongue gently against the roof of your mouth. The tongue should be relaxed, but not touching the teeth. The relaxed tip of the tongue should be on or near the center of the palate (between soft and hard palates).

    For your convenience, here is an audio of the guided instruction for the HealingMindN Posture:

    Introduction to “S” Meditation

    You’re going to be doing something called an “S” Meditation; it is based upon a healing modality by Stewart Swerdlow for eliminating headaches.

    “S” can stand for “spectrum” like all the colors of the rainbow. “S” can also stand for “space” which can be a gap of sorts between yourself and an intented target. “S” refers to both in “S” Meditation.

    You’re not going to go for everything at once as you see in the Chakra Man Graphic. That’s too much. What you’re going to do is progressive visualization in 5 small layers; it’s like progressive resistance when you’re lifting w8s in the gym. In this case, the only resistance you may encounter is your imagination and ability to focus.

    You don’t have to get in the Lotus Position like Chakra Man. Simply begin from a sitting, HealingMindN Posture as you read this. Shift away your eyes from this screen or close them to fulfill each step. You will retain these steps well enough on your own after a few times. Use the “S” Meditation Graphic as a memory jog.

    I’m going to exclude a lot of the theory here as I show you the steps; this is in contrast to the literature from one of my favorite authors, Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming, who is all about the theory before going into the exercises. The breathing exercises contain elements from Dr. Yang’s work since he is one of the main sifu when it comes to QiGong Breathing Exercises.

    Since I’m a student of Steve G. Jones, I’m also including NLP techniques.

    You may have a headache or migraine right now as you’re reading this, but I can’t imagine that you’re having your worst episode as you’re reading this or else how can you read anything?

    You probably associate dark colors with this pounding or constant pressure you experience. There may be a certain darkness that you associate with a particular place in your head where you experience the most chronic pain. Recall a time when you had the worst pain in your head and focus on that spot:

    • What colors do you associate with that pain?
    • What aromas or flavors do you associate with that pain?
    • What sounds do you associate with that pain?
    • What emotions or feelings of movement do you associate with that pain?

    Now, imagine that you are watching yourself. You are sitting or standing right across from yourself and watching yourself at this moment. Your other self is happy, healthy and pain free. Recall a time when you felt healthy and pain free:

    • What colors do you associate with being healthy? Are they bright?
    • What aromas or flavors do you associate with being healthy?
    • What sounds do you associate with being healthy?
    • What emotions or feelings of movement do you associate with that pain?

    When you can recall that time of being healthy and pain free, then imagine a “hissing” sound as if you’re going to pronounce the letter “S.”

    Unfortunately, for most chronic pain sufferers, they can’t recall a time when they were completely pain free. Not to worry. The “S” Meditation will reveal that healthier version of you.

    HealingMindN “S” Meditation

      Layer 1:

    1. Using your diaphragm, breathe in for three seconds, then breathe out for 5 seconds; the 5 second exhale aids in a complete exhalation. As you can imagine, your inhale is a little deeper than your exhale which is a little slower, but don’t hold your breath. Breathe deeply and naturally. Repeat this breathing pattern 8 times.
    2. Same as above, but to help you relax further, breathe in for 5 seconds, then breathe out for 8 seconds. Again, as you can imagine, your inhale is a little deeper than your exhale which is slower and more complete. Repeat this breathing pattern 13 times.
    3. For those of you who recognize the pattern, yes, this pattern follows the Fibonacci Sequence. Proceed forward in the sequence to relax further (e.g. 8 second inhale, 13 second exhale, 21 times, etc). For those of you don’t know what I’m talking about, we’ll return to the three second inhale, 5 second exhale: Let’s call this the 3/5 Breathing Pattern.
      Layer 2:
      Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Method

    1. Imagine, once again, that you’re sitting or standing watching yourself – wherever you are. Imagine your other self in the place of Chakra Man as you see in the graphic to the right. For the ladies, please pretend with your wonderful imagination as if you are watching yourself as Chakra Woman.
    2. Imagine the “S” beginning at the perineum of your other self (in the area of the red chakra).
    3. Imagine that you’re able to control the “S” as it floats upward. The “S” floats upward with your 3/5 Breathing Pattern. Imagine the “S” being pulled up with your inhale then pushed up with your exhale.
    4. Slow down to a 5/8 Breathing Pattern (5 second inhale, 8 second exhale). Imagine the upward pattern of the “S” slowing down to match your breathing pattern.
      Layer 3:

    1. As the “S” passes through your other self, you can hear a faint “hissing” as if air is escaping from a bicycle tire – far away. As the “bicycle rider” get’s closer, the hissing gets a little louder.
    2. Within your other self, where the “S” is loudest, imagine that it sounds as if you’re hissing momentarily with tongue against pallet. At this place where the “S” passes in your other self, you feel happiest, healthiest and pain free: Note the color, feelings, flavors, aromas, textures, (and sounds); this chakrum is at the center of your personal well being.
    3. Before the “S” enters the center of your personal well being, slowly engage it with your tongue and pallet as you “hiss” softly. Disengage When the “S” leaves. Remember to return your tongue within the HealingMindN Posture. Do this 21 times using an 8/13 Breathing Pattern.
      Layer 4:

    1. Maintain your 8/13 Breathing Pattern. For those of you with greater lung capacity, more athletic and adventurous, you may proceed to a 13/21 Breathing Pattern.
    2. Imagine the “Pi” symbol as a living part of your other self, but as part of a higher place beyond the physical body.
    3. As the “S” floats upward with your exhale, it takes whatever problems you have to that higher place. (You may believe your problems belong in hell, but the “Pi” symbol used in this context is an invitation for “others” in this higher realm to fix your problems.)
      Layer 5:

    1. Maintain your 8/13 Breathing Pattern. Imagine your other self as a perfect version of you, happy, healthy, able to cope with any kind of stress, thinking clearly with the ability to solve problems.
    2. Imagine your other self perfectly connected to that higher realm. “Perfectly connected” means there are bright, beautiful colors, sounds, smells, flavors, and feelings are all around your other self.
    3. As you inhale, you draw closer to your other self. As you exhale, you slowly trade places with your other self. You become part of your other self as you both breath in sync.
    4. When you feel there is a perfect connection to your other self, wherein the “S” bridges the gap between you and that perfect version of yourself, allow your tongue and pallet to softly form a “hissing” sound for that moment, then relax.


    • The “S” Meditation can be used any time you feel an attack coming on, therefore, it can be used anywhere; it is best applied at the onset of a headache.
    • Practice makes perfect. After enough practice, your stress-based headaches should disappear within a few minutes.
    • Always start with the most comfortable Breathing Pattern (depends on your lung capacity), then progress to deeper breathing patterns as you are able.
    • HealingMindN Posture and the “S” Meditation are part of an integrative program and are not meant to replace professional medical advice for chronic pain and suffering.

    I wish for you real peace. Thanks for your time.

    Healing Thoughts,

    What is World Sleep Day?

    World Sleep Day – Presented by WASM the World Association of Sleep Medicine

    world sleep dayWorld Sleep Day occurs every 14 March which began in 2008. According to Wikipedia:

    The World Sleep Day is an annual event organized by the World Sleep Day Committee of the World Association of Sleep Medicine (WASM) since 2008. It is aimed to celebrate the benefits of good and healthy sleep and to draw society attention to the burden of sleep problems and their medicine, education and social aspects; to promote sleep disorders prevention and management.

    Through the World Sleep Day the WASM tries to raise awareness of sleep disorders and their better understanding and preventability, and to reduce the burden of sleep problems on society that constitute a global epidemic and threaten health and quality of life for as much as 45% of the world’s population…

    According to research by Dr. Joseph Mercola, poor sleep patterns can lead to chronic ailments. One of his articles, Research Again Confirms Links Between Poor Sleep, Weight Gain, and Cancer indicates world wide chronic sleep disturbances and provides suggestions for maintaining healthy sleep patterns.
    Dangers of Sleep Deprivation
    If you believe that you are suffering from poor sleep patterns leading to further chronic ailments, then please look into brainwave entrainment tools: Unexplainable Store has a 30% discount on their sleep products until March 17th. Please have a look at the Brainwave Science Page.

    Healing thoughts, Healthy Sleep,

    P.S. With the way the world is going with a further missing plane in Malaysia, the situation in Ukraine, and unknown nuclear fallout from Fukushima and New Mexico, we need all the sleep we can get.

    How to Eliminate Stress and be Happy for the Holidays

    Dr. Joseph Mercola discusses important points concerning stress and anxiety in his article:

    Anxiety in Your Brain: What Happens When Anxiety Attacks?.

    I don’t hear much from the self improvement, personal growth gurus about the essential physical aspects of guarding against anxiety. Usually we hear about using affirmations, NLP, hypnosis, guided meditation, and other relaxation techniques if not anti-depressants or other drugs.

    Besides emotional freedom techniques (an energy psychology modality), Dr. Mercola emphasizes:

    • Healthy Gut Flora
    • Regular Exercise
    • (NOT) Drugs

    If there’s anything that most of us have time for, it’s the above three: Take probiotics and exercise regularly if you want to help yourself stay mentally healthy. Drugs eventually take us in the wrong direction, so please avoid them.

    Please visit Dr. Mercola’s article for important solutions. Same as Dr. Mercola, I have also discussed in previous posts how our stomachs are like a “second brain” in terms of psychoneuroimmunology. Our gut bacteria suffers when we eat junk foods including processed meats. Considering the variety and quantity of foods of which we indulge during the Holidays, this is a good time of year for probiotics and vitamin C.

    Epigenetics, part 3: How to Program Your Genes using the Butterfly Effect

    Butterfly Effect

    Lorenz AttractorWhile working on a weather prediction problem one day in 1961, Edward Lorenz, using a computer to model the weather with a system of 12 basic equations, ran a program from the middle rather than the beginning — and entered parameters to three decimal places, rather than the normal six.

    Lorenz was surprised to see how differently the weather patterns evolved. Such minute changes, he supposed, might be caused by something as trivial as the beating of a butterfly’s wing.

    Lorenz had discovered the so-called “butterfly effect,” and was soon embroiled in chaos theory

    In chaos theory, the butterfly effect is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions, where a small change at one place in a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences to a later state…

    I have yet to mention the Butterfly Effect, anywhere, as it applies to self-aware, living systems like us. Most of us know the butterfly effect as “karma” or the old saying, “what goes around, comes around.” Psychoenergetics Experts like Peter Lindemann, Rupert Sheldrake, William Tiller, and Gerald O’Donnell of Probable Future infer the butterfly effect as it applies to self-awareness in the same vein wherein small, yet significant changes can lead to larger, (non-linear) effects in our lives.

    In this continuation from Epigenetics, part 2: How to Program Your Genes and more, I want to show you how small changes in our lives and our seemingly random choices positively (or negatively) affect our DNA expressions via epigenetics, ergo, our quality of life.

    Those of you who are familiar with the movie of the same name starring Ashton Kutcher should know that mainstream sci-fi has a tendency to fictionalize reality. Reality can be stranger than fiction. Ashton’s character could exist in only one time line at a time. Each of us are more complex in that every potential timeline including the ones that can result in large differences in our lives later exists within our minds, right now. Let me elucidate the butterfly effect as it applies to the fabric of your reality.

    Epigenetics: How to Program Your Genes and more, part 2

    At HealingMindN, we’ve always advocated “forging our bodies in the fire of a spirits;” this is a martial arts principle which, today, also translates into esoteric healing modalities using the mind.

    The following post is a continuation from Epigenetics: How to Program Your Genes to Prevent Cancer, Chronic Disease, and more, part 1. At the Mind in Science blog, we educating ourselves about what we take into our bodies including exercise, nutrition, and healing energies. At this blog, we learn about how to induce positive, productive thought patterns – to induce positive expressions within our genetic patterns.

    Say ‘Om’: Researchers Find Gene Action Altered After Relaxation Practice | CommonHealth is an example of recent studies in psychoneuroimmunology of the relaxation response; these are the same types of studies which I have advocated for years. Here is an excerpt from the article:

    Benson’s collaborator, Towia Libermann, PhD, director of the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) Genomics, Proteomics, Bioinformatics and Systems Biology Center and co-senior author of the study, says the evidence clearly links the relaxation response to rapid changes in gene expression. “There is a relatively small subset of biological pathways affected by relaxation response,” he said. For instance, a pathway involved in immune disturbances and inflammation was repressed after the relaxation technique while another set of pathways involved in mitochondrial function and energy production were enhanced…

    The following is an excerpt from Collective DNA Consciousness – DNA forms an intelligent network which is influenced and programmed by intention expressed through word language and ideas:

    In essence, good, positive feelings (based in love) correlate directly to proper biological functions. Bad, life-negative feelings (based in fear) correlate directly to improper biological functions.

    In the following dissertation, studies by top names in genetics and neuroscience indicate that harboring negative feelings causes a biologically weak constitution that leaves a body open to all forms of disease including mutations. Conversely, good, life-positive feelings enforces a biologically strong constitution that is resistant to diseases and mutations…

    We try to do our best to harbor good positive feelings as often as possible. In a world full of dark feelings, this is difficult. We try to carry the benefits of meditation or brainwave entrainment with us into a world full of negative social mood.

    The good news is that our human collective consciousness is waking up to the causes of evil in this world and we’re actually having a positive (remote influencing) effect. For example, consider NSA whistle blower, Edward Snowden, allegedly treasonous, supposedly insane actions as a super patriot protecting the privacy of the American People.

    Also consider the supreme court decision to protect human genomes from being patented; this decision protects human life in myriad ways as opposed to corporations like Myriad Genetics which would prefer to own the rights to our DNA patterns for their own greedy purposes. Some people might say this supreme court ruling goes completely against the grain of their previous rulings in favor of special corporate interests.

    Gerald O’Donnell of Probable Future made several predictions in this respect; that the human species is “waking up.” His guided meditation course with brainwave entrainment actually helps us to reprogram our DNA for higher purposes such as remote influencing.

    In the next post, I would like to discuss with you in a little more detail about how we can deal with our personal (negative) issues during our waking hours using visualization techniques. These techniques helps us to tap into our higher consciousness as well as that of The Creator, Supreme Being, the matrix, etc.

    Thank you for your time.

    How to Cure Loneliness on Valentine’s Day and Beyond

    The following article was among the latest findings in psychoneuroimmunology on the effects of loneliness:

    Study: Loneliness Triggers Inflammatory Illnesses
    Posted on: 02/09/2011

    L O S A N G E L E S—U C L A researchers reported today that chronically lonely people may be at a higher risk for certain types of inflammatory disease, because their feelings of social isolation trigger the activity of pro- inflammatory immune cells.

    The research appears in the Feb. 7 – 11 issue of the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

    In their analysis of 93 older adults, the researchers screened for gene function among different types of immune cells and found that genes originating from two particular cell types — plasmacytoid dendritic cells and monocytes —were over expressed in chronically lonely individuals, compared with the remainder of the sample.

    These cell types produce an inflammatory response to tissue damage, and are part of the immune system’s first line of defense, which produces an immediate inflammatory response to tissue damage.

    It’s this same inflammatory response that, over the long- term, can promote cardiovascular disease, cancer and neuro-degeneration. The report provides further evidence of how lifestyle and social environments can impact human health.

    In addition, the researchers suggest that evolutionarily ancient immune system cells may have developed a molecular sensitivity to our social environment in order to help defend us against socially transmitted pathogens… (Study: Loneliness Triggers Inflammatory Illnesses in .pdf)

    Face Your Fears Every Day like it’s Martin Luther King Day

    From the time he assumed leadership of the Montgomery, Alabama, bus boycott in 1955 to his murder 13 years later, Martin Luther King, Jr faced hundreds of death threats. His home was bombed, with his wife and young children inside. He was hounded by J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI, which bugged his home and hotel rooms, circulated salacious gossip about him and even tried to induce him to commit suicide after he won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964.

    The defining moment of his life came late one night during the bus boycott when he received a threatening telephone call: “Nigger,” the caller began, “we are tired of you and your mess now. And if you aren’t out of this town in three days, we’re going to blow your brains out and blow up your house.”

    Shaken, King went to the kitchen to pray: “I could hear an inner voice saying to me, ‘Martin Luther, stand up for righteousness. Stand up for justice. Stand up for truth. And lo I will be with you, even until the end of the world…’

    King, Martin Luther, Jr (1929-1968) American cleric, Nobel Prize recipient (Peace, 1964) [noted for his instrumental role in the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s; for his eloquence and commitment to nonviolent tactics; for his leadership of many peaceful demonstrations (among them the 1963 March on Washington, at which he delivered his legendary “I have a dream” speech); and for his assassination in Memphis, Tennessee in 1964]

    How Depression is Linked to Inflammation

    Some depression might have roots in immune-generated inflammation

    some depression might stem from inflammation caused by the immune systemNEW YORK—The immune system works hard to keep us well physically, but might it also be partly to blame for some mental illnesses?

    “The immune system may play a significant role in the development of depression,” Andrew Miller, a professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Emory University School of Medicine, said Tuesday at a symposium on neuroscience and immunology at the New York Academy of Sciences. Evidence for this link has been mounting in recent years, and he described this research, which falls in the jauntily named field of psychoneuroimmunology, one of the most exciting recent developments in psychiatry.

    Research has shown that depressed or stressed-out people tend to be more susceptible to medical ailments, such as infectious diseases and perhaps even cancer. But the correlation might also work in the opposite direction, Miller explained. People who are critically ill have about five to 10 times higher rates of depression, and that might not just be due to battling their illness, he noted. It could be stemming from underlying inflammation—a common bodily response to illness or injury.
