How to Get Better Results with Meditation - Q&A about Meditation

I recently received an email from a person inquiring about whether Peering Through the Veil addresses how to make the results they have felt with meditation - such as love, joy, and peace - last for longer than just the meditation itself.

My response is this:

"Meditation requires prolonged practice - meaning daily. The book discusses many forms of meditation and ways to do each one. I've read that after meditating daily for only a few weeks, research has shown that the brain has changed in measurable ways. Perhaps you aren't going deeply enough into the meditation. I talk about various audio programs in the book that might help you with that."

I invite readers to comment below with further questions about meditation.

Author Hits the Amazon Bestseller List While Helping People Combat Stress and High Blood Pressure With Meditation

RADFORD, VA, OCTOBER 15, 2012 – Thanks to her latest book, Peering Through the Veil: The Step by Step Guide to Meditation and Inner Peace, Radford resident, Debbie “Takara” Shelor, is now an Amazon bestselling author.

After graduating from Virginia Tech in 1987 with a degree in Industrial Engineering, she headed off into the business world and the climb up the corporate ladder. Her career success was won at a high price. The more success she achieved, the higher her stress level became. Eventually she hit the wall. Realizing that stress was literally killing her, she decided her life needed to head in an entirely new direction. She left the corporate world, moved to an island, and co-founded a non-profit for dolphins and whales. And that was just the beginning.

In Peering Through the Veil, she takes the reader along on her 18-year exploration of meditation, inner peace, world travel, and spirituality. In addition to practicing numerous forms of meditation from many traditions, she traveled extensively throughout North America, lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico for over 9 years, and also aboard a million-dollar yacht in the South Pacific for awhile.  

Readers of Peering Through the Veil have the opportunity to discover a myriad of meditation methods including: transcendental meditation made popular by The Beetles, Native American sweat lodge, the latest scientifically proven brainwave technologies, and many more. In addition to the various meditation forms, Takara explains ways to get the most benefit out of each meditation experience and how to not only achieve tranquility, inner peace, lower blood pressure, and improved health, but how to find joy and an endless spring of creative inspiration and insight as well.

The book was officially launched on August 24th and the following day reached #2 in its category on Amazon. Visit  for details and to purchase.

Book Launching Today!

Peering Through the Veil available Today

Visit this page, to order at AMAZON and then come back to get your gifts here:

It has been quite a journey transitioning from eBook publishing to print. Peering Through the Veil was completely rewritten and so many personal stories and new information was added that it shows little resemblance to its eBook predecessor.

The book isn't the only thing that had to undergo a transformation. I too have had to transform from being the editor of an online magazine and webmaster of numerous websites and blogs to being a published author with all that it entails.

This entire website is devoted to the book. I've had to update my press kit and prepare for interviews. Setting up an Amazon Author page was a new experience. Connecting with other authors and putting together a book launch has been a delightful new adventure unto itself.

It was very fun dusting off my industrial engineering skills and putting them to good use for managing the "project" of book publishing, launch, and promotion. Using a PERT chart to view my business visually and put together a Gantt chart to brainstorm, manage, and track the project has kept me sane handling all the details.

I often talk about riding the wave. This one has been quite a ride so far and its really just the beginning.

There are several more books in the works and in a few months I'll be launching an online training program. Soon I'll be co-leading workshops locally, with traveling to teach not far behind. I'm working on a giant project with a colleague in Hawaii and can't wait to share it with you when the time is right.

Have a deLightful day,
