What is Meditation?
Meditation is a method of slowing down your thoughts, reactions and breathing. The more your mind empties, the more you can overcome fears and/or painful emotions and connect to your inner peace. Meditation is also a way of training your mind. The more often you do it, the more you become free of inner-struggles and suffering.In addition, we become conscious of our emotions, our actions (and reactions). As we learn to be more self–aware, we are better able to manage ourselves. We begin to respond to a variety of circumstances in very different ways.
Benefits of Meditation
All areas of our lives can benefit from meditation. The more stillness we feel within – the less judging we are of ourselves and others.With meditation we begin to develop acceptance, self–acceptance and self-love. As our journey within continues,we discover deeper qualities of peace and joy – normally hidden by stress, pressure, drama and emotional pain.
The more in command you are of your reactions the more you understand yourself and others. This not only boosts emotional intelligence but improves all relationships.
30 minutes of daily meditation helps your body and mind slow down and relax. Your immune system improves, your resilience builds and your mental health and cognitive development in enhanced.
In addition, when used regularly, meditation can enhance creativity and help you tap into an inner wisdom often shrouded with self-doubt, disbelief and a lack of self-trust.
New to Meditation?
There are many different forms and styles of meditation. When you are new to meditation, it’s often challenging to find the right class. Try a few. Be open to new experiences. Remember to be gentle on yourself and quieten the inner critic that will tell you that you can’t do it!
