Inviting meditation into your life can bring a sense of peace and calm to your otherwise hectic lifestyle.
Could you not use some inner peace and a sense of soothing in your busy world?
Meditation is all about looking inward and focusing on the spiritual core of your life.
The practice comes from Vedic Hinduism. The focus of meditation is to relax and calm the mind and to slow down the level of consciousness. Meditation can allow you to feel better about yourself. It provides feelings of self confidence, empowerment, strength and can turn a heavy stress load on its heels!
Inviting meditation into your life can help you to find stillness in your life and it can center and relax you. Meditation is all about relaxation and rejuvenation! Contrary to what most people believe, meditation is not difficult to learn and anybody who wishes to learn it can! All it takes is the willingness to learn and the desire to quiet your mind.
Mediation is something that you can engage in for as little as 10 minutes a day. If that is all the time you have to devote to it (or if that is all you need) than that is perfectly fine.
Meditation is closely connected to breathing. Meditation teaches those who practice it to engage in deep breathing (which is breathing that comes from way down in the diaphragm), as opposed to breathing from the chest. Believe it or not, the very best teachers of deep breathing are babies! Babies breathe properly. However many of us allow too much stress and a hurried pace to alter our breathing patterns over time.
Meditation seeks to get you back to the place where you should be- the place where we all started, with baby breathing.
Once you have found the serenity that comes from meditation, you will find it easier to reach the same state time and time again. Inviting meditation into your life is ALWAYS an investment in your good health!
Mediation relaxes the mind and body and promotes positivity in your life and healing. For beginners I recommend starting with a very basic breathing meditation. Visit http://www.how-to-meditate.org/breathing-meditations.htm to get started.
Inviting meditation into your life is one of the many ways that you can remind yourself that you are indeed worth it!
