Meditation is a way to find these qualities within yourself. All the above plus so much more is available for us if only we allow it and trust that it is so. A meditation practice is a HUGE key to unlock who you truly are. It may also help you discover what you are here for.
The purpose of meditation depends on the meditator, anyone who meditates regularly receives profound benefits on the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels. Once you begin your practice the peaceful qualities that you seek will enter your everyday life, you will see a difference and so will other people.
To begin a meditation practice is not easy, that is why it is called a practice. If you keep trying the practice will get easier. Look at meditation like putting a different kind of fuel in your body/mind. We do a lot to keep our lives running, this takes energy, where do we getting it from? How can we get more? Oh, mediation and prayer! Who knew? (the people who pray and mediate do)
Start by allowing to give yourself five minutes a day. There are 1,440 minutes in a day so you should easily be able to take 5 of them for you and only for you. As you grow in your practice you will be able to, and want to, increase the time you spend in meditation. 5,7,9,11,15….30(minutes) It is a good idea to meditate at the same time every day, this helps make it a part of your daily routine.
Make a space in your home that is your meditation sanctuary, this is for you, your peace and your self-development.
Meditation can be done sitting, standing or laying down. Be as comfortable as possible, the perfect posture should be a balance of good structure and relaxation. For the duration of the meditation be as simple and open as possible.
Next, take a few deep breaths to consciously relax. Close your eyes and allow the stillness to surround you. Focus on your breath without changing it, just notice it. Without trying, the breath will become longer and slower. Keep breathing. Meditation is happening now. Every time you notice yourself distracted by a thought, notice the thought then release the thought by returning to your breath. No judgement, no effort, just be. This is the practice of mindfulness.
