Meditation has the ability to change everything in your life from fatigue and anger to how you view the world.
The name meditation comes from a Latin word “Meditatum” which means “To Ponder”.
This powerful practice has been used since before the 12th century and no one really knows how it came about. It possibly has a religious context from prayer work done in ritual style and focus for deep peace and inner calm. When practiced with more than one in a group the results are amplified bringing greater joy and happiness resulting in people responding with compassion and kindness rather than anger and hostility.
So fast forward to now in today’s fast and hectic life style often time poor between long work hours and family commitments. Most of us have lost the boundaries around what we think we should do and what we have to do and this has us on a tight rope that can cause health problems in the future.
So What is Meditation?
When we still the mind we have a greater chance to let go and surrender which allows us to firstly unwind from the day and then to gain mastery over our own life.
You may ask how so?
When we focus on our breath and quiet the mind through simple words called mantra’s we have the ability to expand our consciousness which is the quiet place of nothingness. When we reach this level of calm through breath work you peak to another level which I will describe as pure love and bliss. There are many techniques of reaching this higher state ranging from following breath combined with words or mantras to singing praise or chanting. All have the ability to raise awareness and create the desired state of zen.
Why is it hard to Master?
The mind plays a major part in the whole equation and will always tell you this is a waste of time and remind you of all the chores you should be doing. The skill is to let your mind have its chatter then ask for permission to relax and focus reassuring your mind it can come back and play after you have finished! This has always worked for my students and their ability to sink into the quiet zone is then easy. I have experienced ecstatic states of bliss when at retreats where natures colours are enhanced and dreams are full of colour.
Statistics have shown the improvement in overall Health reducing symptoms of ailments with this practice. Imagine planting a seed in a pot. You water the seed daily then it sprouts and flourishes for all to admire.
Meditation through daily commitment of just 11mins a day has the ability to change your life by your ability to manifest as you become a magnet for your intentions. All you have to do is get out of the way and allow the higher intelligence of energy to flow through your body creating a deep sense of connection to love that is bliss. The more you practice the better you become. You will notice you are less reactive to events, people, and situations.
My importantly Meditation does you, you don’t do it. This is all about letting go of control and trusting in your own ability to be one with yourself. This then has a rippling effect with those you come into contact with YOUR ENERGY CHANGES AND IS AMPLIFIED AND FELT BY OTHERS. Become a magnet to draw in your intentions and wishes while being in a complete state of awareness and clarity.
