Last night right before bed (3:30 am pst), i chant "om mani padme hum", then i used the lovingkindness meditation for the gulf.
I am thinking, could an earthquake cause the spill to shut off? Is there any fault lines in the area?

But let us focus on one issue at a time - baby steps to build up our confidence in our spiritual powers, regardless if one is christian, muslim, jew, hindu, buddhist or atheist(free thinkers)
I had the honour of prayers and meditation support in an experiment conducted here on the earthquake issue. While earthquakes during that period still happened, however, miraculously NO lives were lost! Even with magnitude far greater than previous EQs which thousands of lives were lost.
Was it a success or a failure? I leave it to all to decide. What matters to me is that no precious human lives be lost.
Currently, the gulf oil spill is doing a lot of damages, and its repercussions is yet to be felt around the world and for years to come as Gaia will attempt on her own to maintain back the ecological balance to her oceans.
Let us all, from each corner of Earth, and each different faiths, come together and send our spiritual energies to shut off the oil leaking from that hole, sparing a few minutes each night for 7 nights.
Should there be enough people concerned, our electromagnetic fields may generate enough collective power to do the job, by divine intervention from the faithfuls and energies by those who love our one and only home - Earth.
Let us all join in and be one humanity in this experiment, as Earth rotates and that hole recieves energy bombardment continuously. No one will be forced to take part. It is free and done in private, only a few minutes of your time each night for 7 nights.
May it work. Good luck to all and thanks for reading.
PS: As usual, I will take full responsibility for making this call. Let scorn be heaped upon me and only me, not anyone else should it fail. I will repost this in 7 days time for any one who wishes to do so, if this attempt fails. Failure is mine, but success and credit belongs to those who participated in private. Alone I would not have acheive anything or change anything. Cheers!:-)
Hey good post OP! I am no meditation guru, but I thought I would add a few techniques that I have found most helpful, for the followers of this thread until the OP gets back. First, meditation is your inherit gift to yourself that everyone is capable of, so no need to spend money, on anything related to meditation. Each persons technique may differ to fit them best, but this technique I am going to describe is that which resembles a beginning Buddhists meditation. Another good technique that I sometimes use is the Ancient Hindu Chakra one, but let me start with the Buddhist one first.
1.Find a comfortable place to sit. (At first the darker and quieter the better, although you don't want total silence)
2.Find a comfortable position to sit. (Doesn't matter how you are sitting, although I recommend Indian style on the floor)
3.Close your eyes.
4.Begin to take deep natural breaths, in through your nose and out through you mouth.
5. Focus on your breaths as they go in and out, notice how they sound and how they feel.
6.Imagine them falling in and out of you. Do not force them. From now on only breath through your nose.
7.Now direct your focus on your body. Find any discomforts or impurities and focus on that area. Analyze how it feels, is it hot, cold, sharp or dull... and imagine the route which the signals are going from that area up to your brain.
8.Begin to detach your mind from these discomforts of your body by telling yourself "this body is only a temporary shell for me so it is not real and these uncomfortable pains or sensations are only an illusion of my mind". Repeat 5-8.
9. Now direct your focus back to your breathing and then begin to notice all the sounds around you and ask yourself these questions. Are some farther away than others? Are some louder than others? Try not to judge the sounds. Don't tell yourself: I don't like that one or that one is too loud, just analyze everything about them, like which direction are the coming from, which direction are they going in. Try to imaging how much of it's sound wave is entering you and how much is going other places.
10. Now again focus on your breathing, how does it sound, how does it feel. Quiet your mind. No more thinking about anything, just be. There is no more such thing as time, there is no more such thing as you.
If at anytime throughout this you begin thinking about other things, just go back to focusing on your breathing and allow those thoughts to clear from your mind. I can run through the Chakra meditation also if anyone wants, although it is more difficult. Anyway, hope that helped someone. Peace!
