The Power of Meditation and Why You Need It

I recently started meditation regularly and I have started to reap the amazing benefits. Many people wonder what mediation is about and what makes it so special. Let me tell you a bit about the power of meditation.
What is Meditation?

Check out this amazing definition I found on Yogapedia.com

 

Meditation is the process of quieting the mind in order to spend time in thought for relaxation or religious/spiritual purposes. The goal is to attain an inner state of awareness and intensify personal and spiritual growth. In practice, meditation involves concentrated focus on something such as a sound, image or feeling.

The simple way to describe mediation is a process of silencing the subconscious mind. It works by stilling the mind and body so that it becomes more receptive to a positive lifestyle. At first I struggled to keep up with meditating on a daily basis. It was hard for me to find a few minutes here and there everyday and I just kept procrastinating. However, I got myself to start meditating everyday somehow and I now I do it easily.
How I Meditate
Mediation has completely changed my life. I am more in tune with my body and mental health. It has changed everything about my life and how I deal with all that life brings. I can’t imagine not meditating now. I started off mediating for 10 minutes twice a day with a timer and now I meditate for 15 minutes twice a day. Before I start my mediation, I make sure I am sitting comfortably and wearing loose clothing. I also make sure I am alone and my phone is on silent mode so I don’t get distracted.
I would advise everyone to mediate if they don’t already. The benefits are too numerous to mention. Your mind and body will thank you for it. You can start with an app if you are new to meditating. I started with Headspace months ago after trying a couple of meditating apps I didn’t really get. However, I don’t use any app now. I just get on with it using a timer on my iPhone and it works great for me. Now that I am so into meditating, I wonder how I coped all these years without it. It is so important in my daily routine now.
Do you meditate? Have you experienced the power of meditation? What is your regular mediating session like? Please share your views in the comments section below. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week ahead.

  1. I have read many articles about the benefits of doing meditation but somehow I have not gotten to trying it myself. The only issue or obstacle I know that I would encounter is finding a quiet place at home and a quiet time too!

    • It is tricky for me too but I find the quiet time before the house wakes and when everyone else is in bed at night.

  2. Yes! It has been part of my life for many years being in a 12 step program and living a spiritual life. The last 18 months since my husband unexpectedly passed away I have been led to developing my spiritual life intensely. It has certainly helped me not tip over the edge with grief.

    Whilst my children are grown, living there own lives I have 1 still at home, a busy life and also look after my grandson on a weekly basis one to two days.

    I need all the peace I can get. You Tube is my main place as there are 1000s on there. It has opened me up to other schools of spiritual thought and speakers as well as guiding me to guided meditations too. I have also found some for power naps which are excellent.

    I put it on when I wake, at night for sleep and when I need during the day. I usually have spiritual speakers in non duality/philosophers/Christian mystic speakers on. Its kept me somewhat sane

    I’m glad your doing it too. The benefits are immense

  3. I have always loved the idea of meditating but making it part of my life has been difficult.. The only time i can be alone and meditate is only when am by the waterside or hilltop but doing it at home has always been difficult, a lot of distraction and when i manage to do it once it takes forever to be have an opportunity to do it at at home.

  4. I’ve heard a lot about meditating and how people silence their subconscious mind, I personally don’t find it amusing. I really can’t imagine that utter silence. Naaaa sis. Not for me.

    • #that utter silence in my head. If I’m meditating, it’s on something like the word of God, like the things that are wrong in the world, like how to get things done better but to just switch off completely— nope.

      • If it is not for you then it isn’t. Things work for us great and not so great for others so I get it.

  5. I meditate and don’t realize I’m doing so as I don’t make a conscious effort to do so. Helps to clear my mind and just be rid of negative thoughts.

  6. My only mediation time is when I pray. I focus to God and no one else. Giving him all the glory back and thanking Him in all of the blessings makes me feel peaceful.

Speak your heart, don't bite your tongue!
