Meditation Finding Your Inner Peace
Just as there are many ways to meditate there are also a variety of reasons why we meditate.
If you are not yet practicing meditation, ask yourself what’s holding you back?
There are countless traditions and no singular “correct” way to practice meditation. The key is to explore and find what feels good for you and stick with it for a while. Take note of how you feel as you go about your days. You may find you have more patience, feel grounded and better able to respond to stressful situations. You also may find that you become more in touch with your intuitive guidance and inspirational visions. If and when this happens you can be sure you are experiencing some of the benefits of meditation.
It all starts with awareness.
Meditation is good for your health and also builds healthy relationships
Meditation is not only good for the mind but also for the body.
Studies are frequently showing that a consistent meditation practice can help reverse heart disease, reduce pain, and support the immune system. Meditation also can lower the production of the stress hormone cortisol, which equates to people who meditate are more resilient to stress and the many physiologic responses to stress. Meditation also builds healthy relationships by helping us return to the true essence of ourselves and detach from our own egos to connect with others in more meaningful ways.
So whether it’s 5 minutes alone in the supply room away from the noise and chaos around us, a guided meditation, or an active meditation chanting mantra and using mudra, whatever you choose it will have tremendous benefits for your whole health and wellness. The key is to find something that feels good and stick with it. Consistency is paramount, just as in anything in life.
Your heart is stronger than your mind.
