Could Somebody Share The Experience About How Maum Meditation Can Affect Stress-relief?

Hello
I was interested in Maum Meditation recently, so I did a little bit of research.
During my research, I came across a few of survey on the benefits of Maum Meditation.
Among the results, the one that caught my eyes was more than 97% of people answered that Maum Meditation has help them in reducing their stress.

I also am having some difficulties of dealing with my stress.
Before I even get started, could somebody share the experience about how Maum Meditation can affect stress-relief?

I am a ex-member of Maum meditation and want to share some things with you!
How Maum mediation works :
If you spend an hour to an hour and a half a day in meditation, after a few weeks, there is a great probability that you will not return to full beta consciousness. You will remain in a fixed state of alpha for as long as you continue to meditate I'm not saying this is bad--if you do it yourself. It may be very beneficial. But it is a fact that you are causing your mind to go flat.The more you meditate, the flatter your mind becomes and that’s were the danger comes when you allow someone else who you don’t fully know the motives of to take you through these steps and slowly alter deep beliefs about yourself and the world! And if heaven on earth is non-thinking and non-involvement, I really question why we are here. A schedule is maintained that causes physical and mental fatigue (That’s why you need to came meditate every day for at least 2 hours). The aim is to create a mechanism in flesh and blood with new beliefs and new thought processes. So you can be a drone and recruit more people who will bring more money to keep up wish lavish life style woo muyang lives! Heavy participation in meditation is a formula for psychological destruction.

There is different brain wave states (alpha, beta, theta, delta) and all serves a different function, But the alpha state makes people especially susceptible and open to Conversion.
1) Beta – The Waking Consciousness And Reasoning Wave
Beta brain waves are associated with normal waking consciousness and a heightened state of alertness, logic and critical reasoning.
2) Alpha – The Deep Relaxation Wave
Alpha brain waves are present in deep relaxation and usually when you’re slipping into a lovely daydream or during meditation. It is an optimal time to program the mind for success and it also heightens your imagination, visualization, memory, learning and concentration, And most important alpha state makes people especially susceptible and open to Conversion. Technically, what Maum helpers are doing is creating conditions that wipe the brain slate clean so that the mind accepts new input, in the form of suggestion.
The alpha brain-wave state induces the internal release of natural opiates and beta endorphins. Essentially, being in the alpha brain-wave state, feels good and can act like a drug!

You feel happy because your body produces opiates and beta endorphins, this hype is temporary and goes away. So you assessed with completing another level and chasing the rush.
The result is the reduction of thought and eventually, if used long enough, the cessation of all thought and withdrawal from everyone and everything except that whit Maum group direct. The takeover is then complete.
We are all conditioned that if someone gives us something, we have to give them something in return--in this case, it is your money.
The maum helpers have not told you this yet, they don't tell the truth until they get your mind controlled. After level 4 it will ask for "Sky Funds" to allow your ancestors to go to heaven from purgatory, about 1K USD. Really money will take then to heaven?
After level 7 is another level, or "culmination" process with the leader Woo Myung, it last about three weeks or so, and its usually held somewhere in Argentina, Korea, or some another place, they will ask you to pay large amount of money, around $6000, or more depends on your financial status.
NO ONE HAS EVER BEEN BRAINWASHED AND REALIZED, OR BELIEVED, THAT HE HAD BEEN BRAINWASHED. Those who have been brainwashed will usually passionately defend their manipulators, claiming they have simply been "shown the light" . . . or have been transformed in to universe mind

When a person first begins in their spiritual journey they are like babes in the woods. They are prey to every cult, religion and con artist out there. From, so called, established religions which will take every cent the person owns, to the psychics who will charge them for cleaning up negative entities around them, to those who prey on the new simply to satisfy their egotistical need for worship and control.
What you can do to protect yourself is to develop a big sense of self trust. Your instinct will show you red flags when something is not right and the predators will try to undermine those red flags. It is essential that you develop a strong sense of inner guidance. Never hand over your wallet, credit card, soul or mind without retreating for at least week to think about it. If the person selling you their salvation tells you you cannot do that, that you have to make up your mind right away or forever loose your chance at salvation... RUN!!!!
This is very basic stuff. Taking the wrong guru, cult, religion, as your guide can set you back years.
How does a group get into the minds of people who are normal, everyday citizens and intelligent beings? A cult can get you into their ranks without you even realizing it.
The Maum meditation provides somewhere to belong. The most intelligent, the brightest, the most sensitive and kindest people feel left out of today’s society. It is hard for an above average woman, for example, to be satisfied with a mundane job, shopping for clothes and shoes and watching television every night. While her workmates and friends talk about the latest Desperate Housewives episode, or the latest diet fad. It is difficult for an above average man to feel satisfied with his daily work routine, sports, beer, poker nights and living the rat race. They watch as from a distance, joining in only superficially, and feeling alone and left out. Different.
Feeling different is one of the first things the cult will prey on. When someone feels different they want to fit in somewhere. They want to find a group which will make them feel at home, a group which will understand them and talk about things that matter.
Another thing Maum meditation will focus on is making the person feel validated, important, needed and indispensable. All of the sudden the person will feel that what they are doing matters. That what they are involved in will make a difference in the world, that it will possibly not only save them but save those dear to them and possibly the world.
The group will share a very important reality with the person. From being someone who was an outsider, finally here is a group that shares interests and a reality that the normal outsiders cannot see and cannot comprehend.
The group will also provide stability. Now there is a schedule, plan, timetable and common goal. The group will be strong and normally be led by a mother or father figure who will tell people what to do, will tell them they are valuable and will tell them he or she loves and appreciate them.
Another bait is Mystery. I write it with a capital M because it is not the type of mystery that will be revealed at the end of a novel, book or lecture. It is the type of Mystery which people will pay their entire fortunes to have revealed.
The Unknown, a Mystery of this magnitude is a sentient trap. Any sentient being will be trapped by a mystery they cannot fathom. A mystery that is created to be at the same level of intelligence and analytical power as the sentient being is as powerful as iron bars in keeping people from leaving the cult.
There is a saying that goes, “curiosity killed the cat”, this saying perfectly portrays how an intelligent being can be trapped and killed by something they feel curious about and the only things we feel curious about are the ones we are not familiar with, the things we don’t know, don’t understand or don’t see. The Mistery will only be revealed after years of loyal following, work and probably a lot of money. The nature of the Mystery is irrelevant at this point. The victim has invested so much of him or herself to find out what it is, that by the time it is revealed to him or her, it doesn't matter what it is. The person will either completely accept it as a huge and deep truth or will feel like a fool and leave the cult.
The promise of extraordinary abilities, powers, wisdom or knowledge is another trap the group will use. Suddenly the person is privy to teachings which are prohibited to the rest of humanity.
The group will also provide answers. They will have answers to most, if not all, of the questions the person will have about existence in this planet. They will provide answers to everyday problems such as lack of money, relationships, health issues, unhappiness and stress.
Fear is the way to keep the person involved even after their logical mind decides they have had enough. The person will be threatened that if they leave, no one will speak to them again. For long term cult members this will mean they will lose all of their friends and possibly their spouse and family. The person will also receive When a person first begins in their spiritual journey they are like babes in the woods. They are prey to every cult, religion and con artist out there.

Do Internet search about Maum Meditation, try www.reddit.com you will find a lot information about them. I used to practice maum, until I realized what is this about.
Maum Meditation fall under description of a cult. “Nobody joins a cult. Nobody joins something they think’s going to hurt them… “ Maum Meditation using subtraction technique, you will discard your memories- “pictures in your mind”. They have 7 levels of this meditation. Its one of brainwashing methods from Korea. People (most of them are ladies) who work there call them self “helpers”. The will tell you how good this method is and how happy they are, and how happy you will be. They will offer you to come eat delicious Korean food and keep meditating more and more, if you complain about something they will tell you that you need to meditate even more. Until you be brainwashed and ready to serve them , very soon you will be on the streets recruiting new members. You will leave your family and loved ones. What maum helpers won't tell you is this that around level 3 or 4 you will be asked to donate large sum of money, they don't tell the truth until they get your mind controlled. After level 7 is another level, or what they sometime call it "culmination" process with the leader Woo Myung, it last about three weeks or so, you will be send to a camp in Argentina or Korea, or some other place, they will ask you to pay large amount of money, around $6000 , or more depends on your financial status. They are hiding this information from newcomers.

It works. You become a ghost. You detatch emotionally of your past, good or bad. You get a purpouse in life. You get to feel needed. You feel that people really care! Because they really belive! So they rally care! You can finally get to a point where nothing is important, because it's all in your mind! And your mind is full of stored tapets of the past. Its full of ****. and it dies! maum. makes you live forever. And the past lacks meaning! It does not exist. Here Maum meditation taket advantage of a basic fundamental defect of the mind, the mind always needs meaning. If my life was built on historic bullshit, and before me lies a perfekt road, that makes perfect sence, then that's the road I wanna walk. Especially if you get love and food! What else do I really need! I cant think of anything, really! At least that's what I feel and believe I want! Maum also uses the peoples' minds' ability to compartmentalize! Which is a way for the mind to avoid pain! When, in the beginning, the helper tells the story, and you have to wait with questions, the third or forth time you here the story it's no point to react, you just have to nod so that the "helper knows you follow"! I said you really bore me, I know the story word by word allready. Here she used some really professional NLP techniques( or she is just a brilliant phenomenon on getting me away from being present. She kind of exploded, raised her voice and stamped her foot, made me loose track of my thought and I started focusing on her again, realizing this I pretendent going along. Nodding along. but bored to peices, I started giving up myself. Here I am to nice, or codependent, or I would have left the place!
Instead I became the perfect student! And she explained:
You die
You become a goast
You fly to the universe
You have a black hole in front of you
You recall everything, all the tapes/pictures chronologically in your life
You throw them in the hole


Here I started laughing, not to scorn, but of happiness! I recognized the steps. Metaforically when I died, I comforted and lovebombed myself! I was shitscared and covinced that I was dying! I continued comforting and loving my fear for hours and hours and all my history, memories, guilt and shame came up to a concious level and I cried and cried and forgave myself for everything! It took hours! Then my mind, the part that was lojal to my parents inability to meet my needs, went bananas! I heard it as if echoing in a large stonebuilding, doing it's best to put me down. But it left me and at the time I was pretty shure I'd gone utterly mad:) but I just couldn't stop laughing. I was comletely free! And for a week I was hardly touching the ground when walking. I just loved everyone I met. I new I shouldn't show it (the love I felt) all over the place but it was impossible to take peoples fear seriously.
Back to Maum. I tried to explain to her about my "death" and that I totally believe Maum is working. She would not not listen. She believes in Maum and nothing else, and I dont blame her! It probably saved her! But if you ask me it is a method that works! But it has a price! And i dont mean economically! You become more loving and free in relation to your past. But totally ignorant in meeting other people than Maumpeople with an open heart! Though open, but conditioned to Maum!
Peace Andreas

Maum meditation can be helpful. It is also helpful to look at the true cause of stress.
I practced Maum for awhile and found them to be a bit of a cult

Yes, many different types of meditation may have the short-term stress relief effect, but Maum Meditation has the distinctive method to permanently throw them away which is amazing :)

Why don't you start and see how it goes by yourself? I guarantee that your stress will be relieved for good. Try it out!

Why don't you start and see how it goes by yourself?
The best answer!

This method is perfect for stress relief. Nothing is better.

From my experience, Maum Meditation is the best way to relieve stress. As you subtract more, you become much more relieved from stress. That's why I really became a happy being! The best way to deal with stress is to eliminate it from your mind.

It is because maum meditation has the method to resolutely eliminate the cause of the stress. :-) ALL THE PICTURES you have stored inside your mind!

Definitely! I suppose all the thoughts in one's mind are truly a source of stress. For me too, I suffered from too much thought all the time. That was really stressful. I couldn't concentrate on my work, couldn't sleep... with Maum, all these things have disappeared. I said good bye to stress for good.

Umm~~~~~ I've been already doing maum meditation over a year. First I just wanted to get away from my stress. I was very very unhappy person. When I got the booklet about maum meditaiton, I really loved the idea of subtraction. So I started. Amazingly I could really cleanse my mind and free from my running thought and anxiety. Of course this result led me to sleep great every night. I am thankful for maum meditation to help lots of my problems.

So don't hesitate just do it then you will be amazed the benefits of maum meditation. PEACE!!

I think the stress relieving aspect of this meditation is a tip of the iceberg. It does reduce stress but there are much more benefits you can get from this.

Maum meditation has helped me a lot. I used to worry a lot and my head was full of negative thoughts which exhausted me all the time. Through practicing maum meditation I was able to actually let go of all that things. After meditation I feel fresh. It made my life much easier. It can't be more relieving.

Yes that survey really fascinated me as well for all these different people can go through this positive outcomes. I am doing Maum Meditation and it definitely helps me to let go of my stress. Stress can be generated by various factors but where they dwell is all inside my mind. Maum Meditation has the straight-forward method to approach that mind and eventually throw them away. Within first few attempts, I felt so much lighter which is amazing.
