Everyone reap the rewards of a simple mediation practice.
The benefits of meditation are becoming far more widely known. Many people think that you have to be a Guru, Yogi or some kind of serious spiritual practitioner in order to practice meditation and feel its benefits. The benefits are wide reaching; having a regular meditation practice can help you sleep, reduce physical pain (yes really – me and my mate Arthur (Arthritis) are walking proof), it can help with digestive problems, lower stress levels, improve your position on the ‘happiness ladder’ and as a knock on result of all of these you could find your relationships improving as your mental fog begins to lift and you are able to be calm and rational.
It is estimated that we have between 50000 – 70000 automatic thoughts running through our heads every day, many of these thoughts are negative in nature – those ‘why me, she said / he said, can’t cope, not enough hours in the day’ type of thoughts that really sap our energy. Learning to meditate can change all that!
‘I don’t have time to meditate’.
Most people I speak to tell me that they don’t have time to meditate – well unless you are a monk this is the same for everybody. I am a spiritual worker and so meditation is, not only a much loved part of my life it is essential for my working practice, if I don’t do it I find my connection with Divine guidance gets ‘rusty’. Most mornings I wake up at around 5am and devote at least an hour to meditation. This is not necessary for those who are not light-workers. There are a range of meditation practices that can be incorporated into your daily life that don’t involve waking at the crack of dawn, sitting crossed legged or burning incense! A 30 second mini meditation is better than none and can be done sitting at your desk during work hours and no one will know you are doing it!

Oh this is a lovely idea. I posted a video today to accompany my blog on 15 alternatives to colouring books with lots of suggestions for places you can find mindful moments but I hadn’t thought of this one! Of course, the beauty is mindfulness is that you can practice it anywhere, doing anything! Thanks for sharing this.
Thank you for your comments, your blog looks great! Hopefully with enough of us writing and sharing the world will become a happier more balanced place!
I am sure that it will. I think, in spite of what people often say, there is a lot of loveliness in the world and a lot of people wanting to strive towards a happier society! And thank you for the feedback on my blog. Really appreciate it.
