The Many Benefits of Meditation

By | April 30, 2016
Benefits of Meditation Meditations date back to early civilizations in the East and have been brought to the West and popularized only recently, since the 1950’s or so. This sacred practice is now utilized by so many in creating a happier, healthier self. While there are multiple types of meditations from mindfulness to transcendental, it can be simple and consistency is the key. Start your meditation practice each day with only 10 minutes for a minimum of 30 days in a quiet, comfortable place for reflection with comfortable clothing. This can create a healthy new habit that will begin to improve your way of seeing things and ultimately, your way of living and being.

Some of the many benefits of meditation are:

• reduces stress and worry

• improves sleep & energy

• slows aging

• reduces pain

• improves focus

• strengthens immune system

• lowers blood pressure

• creates peace and clarity

• heals emotional wounds

• improves productivity and efficiency

• removes burdens

• manifests desiresOm Shanti

When we can find this peace and clarity within our own self first, then the energy we feel and express travels outwardly rippling to many others. Flowing this peace outwardly, living mindfully, only allows for even greater peace to return, it is the Universal synchronistic balance of giving and receiving. Mother Teresa said “If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.” Meditation is a perfect way to begin the healing and empowering of not only yourself but all those around you. Spread the love and peace. Begin the sacred and personal practice of meditation. Om Shanti Shanti Shanti(Peace, love, and light be with you).
