Often, people tell me they’ve tried to meditate but cannot stop their mind, sit still or stop thinking. Trust me it was the same for me! It was only through consistent practice that everything changed.
I invite you to take charge of your life and begin a meditation practice, under my tutelage you too will be able to practice more often if not on a daily basis. Whenever we make time for meditation, we immediately feel better. And if we have a daily practice, we would feel better more often. Daily practice yields transformative results. Studies show that meditation changes our brain matter. We literally shed stress, are less reactive, increase our attention span and become more patient and adaptable. Here are three simple reasons to be consistent with your meditation practice:
- Daily practice teaches you to be patient and kind. With time you’ll come to appreciate that certain emotions — like impatience and anger — don’t go away for good, but that you can learn to move on from them quickly.Learning to let go with ease and handle emotions with grace is a product of daily practice. When we spend time in deep meditation, we release what we cognitively know and what we’ve unconsciously stored in our bodies and minds. All of our haste, worry, anxiety, dread and fear will literally fall away with each time we practice.
- Daily practice unleashes your creativity and helps you to locate imaginative solutions.Once you begin sitting regularly and spending time releasing all of the lower-level reactions from your brain and physiology, your adaptability and creativity increases.
- Daily practice helps you move away from doubt into courage. Meditation is your way to let go of doubt and begin to create consistent space and time to rewire, rebuild and nourish our most confident, courageous self. Meditation is how we shift from surviving to thriving.
Meditation techniques, teach us to live in the present moment. It is a part of us that is with us all the time, you just need to learn how to access into this oasis of peace and calm and guide you to assist you in a more balanced life, spiritual growth, love and health. Right now take a deep breath, pause in this moment of quiet awareness — where all is calm and the mind can rest – if only for a short while.
