Letting Go Of Habitual Thinking

A brief talk by Michael Mervosh about letting go of habitual thinking and learning to resonate deeply with reality. Our habitual thinking is comforting, but Michael encourages us to get into an exchange with the world around us through a receptive and resonating body. Ask this question: what is the world asking of me today? And then call yourself into being. 

A Receptive & Resonating Body- Transform Habitual Thinking

A brief meditation in which we use the breath as a foundation for moving our being into alignment with what is. A receptive body is the foundation for healthy interactions with the world around us. Michael Mervosh shows us a simple tool for moving out of habitual thinking into a more resonant relationship with life. 

Ego Surrender and Healing

1)    Use simple names with a goal – people are surfing the list with a “goal” in mind

2)    The highest played meditations are ones that become a daily practice.

Ideas for meditations:

Kundalini series with intent to get one that people use daily:

Energizing Kundalini (Basic) – 10 minutes

Morning Kundalini – 15 minutes

Kundalini Breath – 10 minutes

A note on courses: even the most popular courses have at most 3000-5000 attendees.  The numbers are good on this but if we want maximum exposure this is likely not the path. If we want income, this is a good path.

Ideas for courses:

10 days to awaken your energy body (Kundalini)

Awakening to your unique life (instead of awakening the hero? Again, accessible language)


Suggest that each person pick 10 individuals who are close to the community and email them with a request to:

1)    Download insight timer if they haven’t already

2)    Follow the Hero’s Journey page

3)    Give 5* ratings to our meditations:

I would ask in a broader email for people to Follow us, and give us 5* ratings on the three meditations.
