(00:54):

We're basically doing a club it's called the 22 minute club, hashtag 22 men club, which is, uh, basically going into a silent meditation for 22 minutes a day, and then hashtag tagging and, um, and being able to spread the kind of infectious, uh, idea for other people to meditate. So how this happened was, boy, let's just go there. Okay. So 23 years ago, I was, I was how old was I? I was 24 years old. I began my spiritual journey at 22 when I had my stillborn, uh, full born full term son. And a year later I had had my son who now is 25 years old. And I remember I was, I was sitting with my son and, um, he was actually had just gone down for a nap and I was sitting there next to next to him. I was just watching him.

(01:57):

I was literally just watching who he was, the miracle that he was as this little, little guy, you know, and I just felt so miserable inside. I just felt like I, I wasn't even in that room, I was sitting there as like a glimpse of actually seeing him. And I just realized that I never even, I never had even seen my son. I felt like I, I felt like I was a mom that wasn't really, even there. I wasn't even present for my own son. I was always, my mind was always somewhere else. I need to get something done or, you know, what, what hasn't happened today or has somebody text or neck text or just stressed out. And I just was not a present mom. I didn't have the tools to actually be in that beautiful space of, of this little baby. And I realized in that moment that I had to change, I had, I had to change, you know, and I had moments, of course, we had moments and moments of moments of recommitting to, to do our work.

(03:03):

And I was reading, of course I was really obsessed with spiritual work and I couldn't afford to get a spiritual coach. There was probably not, no such thing at that point in time, long time ago. And I, I didn't have any money. So what I could afford was a book and I was reading a deep proc TRR book. And, um, in the book, it said to meditate for 20 minutes in the morning and 20 minutes in the evening. And I began to do that. It was very hard. I would go into meditation and I had what they call monkey mind, like crazy. It was literally just awful. It was like taking fingernails and going down a chalkboard and I could not meditate, but I thought I, it was the only thing that I'd read that was consistent through the books that I'd read and through the great minds that I'd learned of, that they all meditate.

(03:50):

They all would refer to meditation. So I thought there, there has to be something here and I don't know what it is, but it's like going to, you know, it's like wizard of Oz and Dorothy going down the yellow brick road, she just knows that she has to get to this, this, this city and to, um, you know, the man behind the curtain, if you will, she didn't know what it was gonna bring, but she just knew and all signs were directing her towards that. And she had to go to that city. And that's what I felt about meditation. I didn't know what it was like to meditate. I didn't know what was on the other side of that curtain. I didn't know. Um, anything, I just knew that it all signs were pointing that if I just did that, there was gonna be something on the other side of the veil.

(04:38):

So I began to meditate and it was awful. I, I really couldn't even meditate for five minutes at first it was torture and I, everything my mind would trick me, you know, I would think, well, I don't have time to meditate or, you know, I, I gotta get up and do this to-do list or my son needs me or whatever, everything would get in my way of meditating. But it was like a knowing there was a knowing that if I just went past that wall, if I just stayed in meditation, I knew at a core of who I was, that there would be something miraculous on the other side. So I kept doing it. It was one thing I did consistently and not very well, five minutes here, three minutes there, 10 minutes there. But I, I just knew, I knew that if I just stuck with it and I began to break through the wall, and as I've said through another podcast, I kind of had my whole spiritual journey.

(05:33):

I, I disclosed everything that went through that. And the point is, is this, is that meditation was this, I call it the infinite journey, because what happened was, as I began to break through the monkey mind, I began to get into, you know, that, that gap, that observer and I began to watch my thought forms kind of drift by light clouds. And sometimes I'd entangle them. And it was like all of a sudden, I'm, you know, I'm with my girlfriends down, you know, hanging out at a cafe and I'd like, wait, wait, wait. I'm in meditation. Let me come back to this present moment. And I, you know, release that. And then all of a sudden I'm stressed doing my bills, trying to like, you know, think about all the things I need to get done. And I'm like, wait, wait, wait, breathe again, come back to the present moment.

(06:26):

And the point is is that if you just come back, it's like a muscle that I kept building. I kept building, I kept building and I come back to that present moment and I come back to the breath and I come back to that gap and release the thought forms and just be, and it was such a concept I had never, ever experienced anything like that to just be without thinking without the brain, without that entanglement of, of all the doingness the past, the future, the, this, the, that, all of that. And I'd come back and I'd come back. And then what would happen is I remember there was a point in time that I thought, oh my gosh, I have really advanced in meditating because I can actually go in there without entangling, with thought forms. I can actually just be, and I thought, oof, I have just, I am a great meditator.

(07:16):

Right. And it was, it was, uh, a big advancement for me. And then what would happen is I would go into meditation and I wouldn't even necessarily wanna come out with an answer, but I'd go in kind of not having clarity around a certain area of my life. And I'd go into meditation and with no expectations, because one of the things we practice in side of the meditation is not wanna get anything out of it, cuz it's not visioning work. It's not prayer work. It's not any of those things. The intention is to empty the mind and allow the truth of the universe to stream in. So, but I would go in, in some confusion in my life, in, you know, different areas, whether it be in my relationship, I'd be confused about how to deal with an argument or an upset or whatever. Or I would go in with business and think, you know, how am I going to get that next sale or whatever it is.

(08:12):

And each time I would go into meditation, I would naturally come out kind of knowing the answer to things. And as the universe is saying, yes, right now, cuz there's ambulance, that's going by that say yes, yes, yes. There's a sign here. Right. And we have to listen to the signs of the universe. So as I began to go more and more into meditation, I would have more of these kind of really cool things that would happen. Right. Like it was like, okay, cool. That was a little bonus to that meditation. Right. But then something happened and I began to break through this wall and I began to what I call Astra project. Or you could say whatever you go in consciousness and I'd have these profound experiences in meditation. I would go to people and places and circumstances and pass lives. And it began to be like that the lie in the witch, in the wardrobe, you know, that book, that famous book where they open this wardrobe, there's these, I think I forget what the book was about exactly.

(09:20):

But I think it was these little children and they'd go in and they'd play and they'd open up this wardrobe in one of the rooms in their home and they'd go down into this, they'd go on an adventure into different worlds. And so for me, that was what meditation was like, it was this place I'd go in there and I didn't have any expectations of where I was going. But all of a sudden I'd be in the Himalayas meditating with monks or I'd be with a mother that was holding her dead baby crying or I would go to, um, and be with different Dees or I'd go down to being a little girl in, in sadness and being able to hold her again, wherever I went, it was this infinite journey. I'd go to different galaxies. I'd be able to understand and go into the mind of, of that person.

(10:10):

That was mean to me or looked weird to me on driving next to me on the street, I'd be able to know what was going on with him. I'd be able to go visit my mom and I'd be able to understand and have compassion about what was going on for her. And I'd speak to her in consciousness and I'd heal something in consciousness. And so I began to, it was the most precious thing of my life. This thing called meditation, this, this place I could go on consciousness and, and it, it was just became the most beautiful I'd spent hours and hours and hours on meditation. I was literally, my eyes would pop open at four o'clock in the morning. Cause I was so excited to go back into that infinite journey into that wardrobe, into that place where I could go anywhere in consciousness, going through the veil and recognizing my oneness and, and knowing that I could go in a journey and I didn't know where it was gonna take me today.

(11:09):

So then as, as all the truths streamed through the, the truths of the universe, everything from the universal laws to the wisdom of our oneness and all the metaphysics and all this stuff, understanding and learning out in the world through getting, you know, my, my spiritual practitioner and, and becoming a minister and, and understanding the metaphysics of life, he would also stream through consciousness. So it was a really great to have the balance of doing both. But then what happened was I came to Los Angeles. I came to Los Angeles some years back because I had a mission and spirit had spoken through my higher self that I really wanted to finish up my doctorate out here. And I wanted to also, um, it was called to get into media, knowing that the whole world looks to Los Angeles into media for, and is in, you know, they're touched they're, they're impacted, they're programmed through media and spirit was kind of ebbing me towards media because I can bring truth and do it in an entertaining way.

(12:13):

And so I came to Los Angeles and what happened was I, I was so fed. I was so fed by the years and years and years, I had spent for hours and hours of meditation and with divine and with DTS coming and all this infinite wisdom that came through that when I came to Los Angeles, my spiritual practice of meditation went down significantly. My spiritual practice of practicing with every breath of my life and getting in the right mind every day. And the discipline of my spiritual practice grew exponentially in the concrete jungle of Los Angeles. But my meditation and my touching on that divine went down and down and down. And I began to feel a little bit. It was like my, that bliss that nectar began to decrease, but my power and my stance of knowing who I am and the world got stronger because I was really practicing this chapter of, of the truth of who I am. And my only prayer, I only have one prayer. People pray for things. They pray for their soul made. They pray for, you know, to make a million dollars. They pray for, to get skinnier. They pray for whatever it is, right. I don't, I only have one prayer. And my prayer is to be connected with source with divine, because I know in that that everything is added,

(13:49):

But seek ye first, the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be added onto you. Right. But seek you first the kingdom, right? The heaven within, because we recognize when we, when we seek that temple, when we seek that heaven, when we seek and go there

(14:15):

To the kingdom, to the heaven, to the realm that is divine and the righteousness, the right mind, our cutout runneth over our cut with runneth over, and all things are added, infinite, infinite, potential, infinite innovation, infinite, infinite, everything, relationships beyond our wildest dreams, vitality and health, and beyond the body and money of course, money because it all flows. It's a currency, right? And in that flow of being one with the vine things, just open up doors, open people are, you have charisma. They wanna do business with you. They wanna be friends with you. They want to, you know, be with you all the above.

(14:56):

And so my only prayer is to be connected to source. So I've been praying lately, cuz I just felt like as much as I know who I am, as much as I feel like it's all divine, it's not like this isn't connected and this is connected cuz it's all one thing going on, but I've been praying lately to really get deep, deep, deep back into that infinite field, into that adventure, into the infinite journey of meditation. Cuz I I've been meditating over the years, but just not to the extent that I used to. And so as a coach, you know, it is my, my joy to have accountability and um, and come together in community to, to inspire one another in what we're truly committed to. And one of the greatest things I've noticed, um, in, in training, you know, many women around the globe is that whatever it is that they really want to embody, the best thing to do is to give it away and hold yourself accountable for.

(16:00):

So hence, you know, we have these soul circle calls and things like that, where if they wanna embody, um, a different distinction, teach universal law or teach conscious relationship or teach spiritual business or whatever it is, if they keep teaching it, they will get to keep it. There's like a law in this universe where if you give it a, if you, you know, in order to have it, you gotta keep, you gotta give it away. You've gotta te if you want it, you wanna embody it. You've gotta give it away. So I'll have, um, the women do consistent challenges or soul circle calls to give away co consistently what they wanna really embody, um, fully. And this is what came to me. I was like, okay. So if I want to commit to deep, deep meditation, again, profound meditation, how am I going to give that away to have that?

(16:46):

Right. So it came up with a little fun challenge and the challenge is hashtag 22 men club, meaning 22 minute club. And the reason why, because number 1 22 is my favorite number. I don't know what it is, but I just love that number. I know that it's like, it resonates for me. Like I'm in synchronicity of my life. It's like my sign. So, and obviously I do more than a 22 minute meditation, but when I'm getting back in, it's like going to the gym, you know what I mean? When you first get back to the gym, it's kind of hard. It's like, it's hard. It's, it's not easy. And if you tell yourself you're gonna do some huge workout, you most likely won't do it. But if you just go, well, I'm just gonna start the walk. And then all of a sudden you're jogging and running, right?

(17:30):

If it just start a little bit, then if I just kind of walk to the gym, then maybe I'll feel like working out. Right? So that's kinda the way I feel about 22 minutes of silent meditation in that it's long enough because what happens when I first get back into the gym of meditating, my monkey mind is going crazy, right? And I generally, it takes some time to break through that. And I feel like if I went say 11 minutes, it's not enough time sometimes to break through that wall. But 22 minutes I've found is always, you're always through that wall, uh, for myself. Um, before 22 minutes, it might be 15 minutes. It might be at 11 minutes. And then as I keep doing it might go down to a few minutes, you know, until I break through that monkey mind. But 22 minutes feels like it's not too long to where it's undoable, but it's not small enough to where you don't really actually get in there and get connected.

(18:23):

So it's super fun because the challenge is this, the challenge is to go into silent meditation and what is silent meditation, right? I teach meditation and there's many different, there's infinite ways of meditating. And there is basically a gradient of meditating on one side is where we focus the mind we have centered meditation. We do mantra meditation. We, we do a very specific intention. Okay. And we direct, if you will, on the other spectrum of meditation, it's emptying the mind, really getting into that ness and opening our consciousness so much that the truce of the universe can stream in. Right? We become receptive. We, we, we become receptive. And on the other spectrum of the meditation, we, we, we direct energy upon universal mind. Okay? So in this silent meditation, my invitation for you is to go into a 22 minute silent meditation. That means this no mantras, no putting on music, no listening to a guided meditation and no going in with something, wanting to get something out of it.

(19:29):

I think one of the biggest pitfalls people do is they go in hoping for a sign, trying to get a mental picture, trying to manifest something, trying to get something that is not what silent meditation is. In fact, it's quite the opposite. You need to go in without any intention other than just connecting and listening and being there with your higher self, with the beloved within the divine. Not having any expectation, not judging if you have monkey mind or not, not, not having attachment to where it goes, but literally just being with what is, and in this I recommend, you know, obviously being in a place where you're not gonna be disturbed and I recommend turning your phone on airplane mode. So you don't have wifi going through, but turning also on your, an alarm, because what happens is as you go into a 22 minute meditation and say, you're just gonna, you know, open your eyes and get the clock.

(20:24):

It's gonna feel like forever going, you know, forever, because you're gonna constantly wanna look at the clock. And two minutes feels like 10 minutes, right? You're like, Ugh, why is it taking so long? So getting in there, setting your alarm for 22 minutes so that you can just fully be in there and, and your mind's gonna want, have you come out, it's gonna want you to do your to-do list. It's gonna tell you all the reasons, you know, your body might be uncomfortable. You think, you know, oh, I, I, you think you can think of everything. Your mind is gonna play tricks on you, of why to get out of that 22 minute silent meditation. But my invitation is for you to have the discipline, to just be with it and commit to those 22 minutes, setting the alarm and allowing the miracle to happen. Meaning that just being with what is, that's the miracle? So last night, uh, now I've been doing these 22 minutes and what happens is when I break through the wall and I start getting into that nectar of life that nectar within,

(21:21):

Sometimes I feel like I'm like drugged when the 22 minute, uh, alarm goes off and sometimes I'll reset it. Okay. Don't you don't have to do that. Okay. But for me, it's like, it is a beautiful, the 22 minute is a minimum commitment for me. And if I feel so inspired, I'll go another or another. Okay. And maybe multiple throughout the day or not, but I make sure to do one. And so in this last night I was, I was meditating. I was actually with a girlfriend, a dear friend, and, and we do meditation together. I love doing meditation with my friends that are very highly woke and we set the alarm for 22 minutes. And I went in of course, and it was only a few minutes in that my monkey mind began to stop. And my, the right and left hemisphere of my brain started connecting. And then there I went, I was up in this temple in the top of the Himalayas. And I actually was within this monk. He was young. He was probably in his twenties or something like that. And I was inside of him, literally in his consciousness

(22:32):

And his consciousness was speaking to me and he was saying, it's I understand, I understand that. It's hard to do your spiritual practice sometimes in the concrete jungle of Los Angeles. But all you need to do is just come here and be with me, be with me, be in my heart, be in my consciousness and connect with divine at such a profound level. And I just sat there in there. Just, just feeling the connection, feeling that divine connection, that total overflowing of the cup, the total bliss, a total nectar. And then I journeyed again. And I went to myself as a little, a little baby at six months old. And I was in a crib at my grandmother's house. My mother and father had left me for a month, at six months old as I went over to Europe and my grandmother was not so nice. And I was sitting in this crib, crying and crying, crying was a little baby. And I picked myself up and I held myself in my own arms. And I began to calm down as the baby and began to feel so whole and so held and so loved and so safe.

(23:46):

And then my conscious came back and I sat in this beautiful space of total bliss and total overflowing and tears of joy streamed down my face. And right then the alarm went off. I clicked off and then I sat back in the meditation

(24:04):

And I just said, thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I'm back. This is the most beautiful thing I've ever experienced. And the most sacred thing of my life is my divine connection. It is the most sacred part of my life. It is so beautiful in that journey. And so I just think, oh my gosh, if we can touch one person's life with the 22 minute club, if we can hashtag just one thing, we're not promoting anything, we're not selling anything. Just the point. And the purpose is to inspire one person to go within and touch on their divinity.

(24:42):

And so I just know today is a beautiful day to open that wardrobe to step in and fly into consciousness into the realms of the oneness, into that dimension. That is dimensionless. And I just say yes, yes, yes. To this incredible infinite journey of meditation have a beautiful day. And may you live your truth? And again, I invite you. I really invite you to spread this hashtag hashtag two, two M I N C L U B 22 men club post a picture of yourself on your Instagram stories or wall or Facebook or anywhere on social media. Hashtag let people know about it. Go into a 22 minute silent meditation, set your alarm, no mantra, no guided meditation, no music.

(25:43):

And let's just allow the miracle to happen. I'm so I, I don't know if I've ever been so excited for somebody just because I just know this is the greatest gift that I ever gave myself is to discipline myself, to go into silent meditation. I love all kinds of meditation. I love Kini yoga. I love breathwork. I love, you know, all different types of meditation, but silent meditation for me is where the magic happens. So give it a try, have a beautiful day. And may you live your truth? Thank you for tuning in society and Dr. Aaron podcast.
