Focusing one’s energy through mantra meditation

June 04, 20231 min read

This weekend I was at Taplow Court in London. The energy of this place is remarkable.

There feels to be something magical when being on the grounds of this Buddhist Center. I receive clarity about my life and feel filled with a deep trust in the mystically unfolding journey.

Coming from an engineering and science background I’ve been studying the effects of this open-eyed, chanting mantra meditation of “Nam Myoho Renge Kyo” for the past year.

It’s still a hypothesis, but this is how I understand the inner workings of this practice from my analysis with HRV (heart rate variability) technology:

  • The heart creates the strongest magnetic field our body can create.

  • Chanting focusses and amplifies the energy in the heart like a laser focusses and amplifies light (see the highlights in the image below from my self-experimentation)

  • A clear intention from the mind in combination with the focussed energy state in the heart transmits this intention into the environment (like a radio station) and is equally attuned to receiving the corresponding answer.

The effects of doing it on my own are powerful. However, being in a place where practitioners come together amplifies this effect. It’s tremendous and the level of conversation and connectedness is second to none.

I am a certified HRV and peak experience coach. I use bio-feedback technology, in particular heart rate variability (HRV), to enable people to find their flow states, regain health and live peak experience lives. A background in sustainable energy engineering coupled with a passion for spiritual modalities and energy in a broader context has led me to an approach that merges cognitive understanding with embodied experiences. I practices Buddhism and have presented my research globally, among others at MIT in Boston and the DRS conference on Future-focussed thinking.

When I look at the world I see unique connections between people, places and ideas. To me the world is an interconnected, holistic system - the oneness of self and environment.

Over the years and have met thousands of people in heart to heart dialogues when travelling over 50 countries, earning degrees from four universities, publishing a dozen academic papers, presenting my research at international conferences and working for world leading sustainability and digital research organisations.

I have been a contributor to House of Beautiful Business, Mindvalley, Evercoach and other initiatives cultivating new ways of working, fostering entrepreneurial mindsets and creating work cultures and environments that celebrate the whole human being. I view business as a vehicle for self-actualisation and believe that when done from a place of love and compassion that it holds the potential for healing our world.
