Walking Meditation Preview
This is a short trailer from my newest video available on my Healing Community pages. The footage is breathtaking!
People often assume that meditation involves sitting still in one position with eyes closed - but there are other ways to meditate. During the months of lockdown I was fortunate enough to be able to walk miles each day on Dartmoor, quickly discovering how meditational it could be.
This 'walking meditation' captures that experience. As I walked, I tried to remain mindful of each moment, always bringing my mind to the present moment, focusing on the sounds around me, my breath or any physical sensations. I gently tuned into my thoughts and observed them as they came and went.
I hope my new video will help you to also enjoy the benefits of walking meditation.
Grounding Meditation Preview
My grounding meditation is available on my Healing Community page. The accompanying video includes breathtaking scenes that we've filmed on Dartmoor, and in particular, at the mystical Hound Tor.
Grounding is a spiritual term, referring to centring one's soul in the body, and in turn, connecting it with Mother Earth. As I've discovered, when these connections are strong, it helps you feel safer and more in touch with the earth and Mother Nature.
If you experience fear and anxiety in your everyday life, it's possible that you have become ungrounded. Practicing a guided grounding meditation allows you to focus your mind on the present allowing you to feel more balanced, calm and peaceful.
This is a short trailer for my grounding meditation. 🙏🏻
All The Days of Your Life by Matthew Manning, Anita Ridley and Tim Wheater
Matthew Manning: Portrait of a Psychic (1974)
HERE'S A GREAT PIECE OF ARCHIVE FILM!
Shortly after my first book The Link was published in 1974, a 30-minute film was made about me by a Canadian company. It was directed by Joan Kemp-Welch who, at the time, was also directing the TV series 'Upstairs Downstairs'.
Of course, this was long before the digital age and although I saw the completed film just once, I was never given a copy of it - and nor did I ever receive any royalties from it! I know that it was shown on TV stations around the world as it would then create a flurry of letters.
It has recently resurfaced online although at 20 minutes it's missing the start and finish.
It includes an interviews with my father (who managed to say 1966 rather than 1967!), the headmaster of my school, and one of the boys who witnessed strange happenings. There are also contributions from two of the many scientists who by then had tested me - including a Nobel Prize winner.
For me, however, it's gold-dust archive material and I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I did last week for the first time in 46 years. On a personal note I was astonished at how 'plummy' everybody sounded! Accents, thankfully, have changed over the decades.

The Joining - A Preview
THE JOINING: MATTHEW MANNING & ANITA RIDLEY
After decades of using other musicians work for my healing work, I am now producing my own music with my creative partner, Anita Ridley. I'll be playing this stunning piece of music at all my future events when doing a healing demonstration.
It captures every energy that is felt during a healing experience - from the grounding bass notes, the deep strings and brass - and the soaring voices that lead you on a journey into the esoteric. Even the random drumming reflects the sometimes erratic nature of the moving energies within our physical being.
Having completed it, we had no title for the piece. But when I played it publicly at a healing demonstration the first time the title came to me: 'The Joining'.
It's a really mind blowing piece of music that mirrors the ebb and flow of energies, the crescendo reflecting the passion of the emotions and the soul.
This is the ultimate piece of healing music. 🙏🏻
