Meditation is a wonderful way to restore and enjoy inner peace. It is food for the soul and creates renewed balance and clarity. Meditation is incredible in strengthening self-awareness and acceptance.
The benefits of meditation are many for it calms, soothes and provides mindfulness. My guides believe it's a form of 'medication' as meditation supports our mental clarity in helping to prevent stress, anxiety, sleep related issues and supports everyday life.
For example, mindful breathing with meditation lowers the heart rate and improves the circulatory system within the body, stimulating self-healing. There have been studies, which suggest the regular practice of meditation lowers blood pressure by making the body less receptive to stress hormones. These, along with other physical and spiritual benefits are why you should consider adding meditation to your daily routine.
We are told meditation is finding a quiet space to sit and stilling the mind for a period without any distractions from our surroundings. There are so many ways to meditate, it can be 10 minutes to gather our thoughts and focus on our breathing. Some choose to listen to peaceful music while they do this. Set rituals can be followed that make use of mantras or visualisation techniques to stay focused. How you choose to meditate is up to you. Experiment with different techniques, you will find one that works for you. Meditation is an easy, inexpensive tool to improve your general health and spiritual well being. It also complements other alternative or medical treatments.
However, my guides say that meditation can be actions like Yoga, Tai Chi, bush walking, star gazing, bird watching. These things can give people the same benefits as it does for those who practice traditional meditation.
I have practiced meditation daily for over 15 yrs. Meditation has made a huge difference in my life in spiritual development and how I deal with everyday stress and the challenges that we face in our busy lives.
