What is Meditation?
Meditation is the act of dedicating a certain period of time to allow yourself to reflect and contemplate upon your thoughts. During meditative practice, we connect ourselves with the Greater Consciousness. Through this peaceful regimen, we enable ourselves to process and structure our thoughts and emotions into an organized fashion, thereby reducing stress and becoming more aware of who we truly are.
How does Meditation work?
Meditation can be done in several ways. Most people find the greatest benefit from silent meditation. However guided meditation has also proven to be very helpful in keeping the person from getting distracted by their own fluttering thoughts. Mantra chanting is often also done during meditation, and this is helpful in negating ill effects of past life karma. Visualization during meditation also helps people gain focus and clarity on their goals and dreams, and the stillness allows them to carve out a plan of action to achieve them.
How can I benefit from Meditation?
Meditation offers a great deal of calm, relief and relaxation to anyone who practices it. By giving yourself a few moments everyday to just be still, you will give your body and mind time to rest, recoup and adjust itself to handle the pressures of daily life. In addition to this, your mind will start to declutter the mess of thoughts you have going on, and you will be able to think with great perspective and clarity. Ideas and creative thoughts will come naturally to you, and you will find yourself equipped with solutions you probably never thought off under all that stress!
