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 benefits of mediation image
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.

Have a vision and bring it to life

Working as a self employed from home has its ups and downs but I won’t trade my life for anything. I remember how unfulfilled I felt in my last traditional job. The job wasn’t what I wanted to do and I felt my skills were being wasted.

Being my own boss allows me make the most of my skills and create my own destiny, and I love it. Many people ask me how I have managed to earn a living working from home and the simple answer is I created jobs I could do using my skills. I had a vision in my mind of how I wanted my life to be and I went with it.

Have a vision and bring it to life

Being able to create a vision and bring it to real life is the power of manifestation coupled with lots of hard work. I won’t be able to do what I do if I didn’t first create it in mind. I believed in my vision and it came to life. Also, I worked hard to be in the position I am in now and I have to continue to work as hard as I can to continue to grow in my hustle.

Working for myself is one of the hardest things I have ever done. There’s no one to blame if things go wrong. It’s me, myself and I in here, and it feels scary and fun at the same time. However, I am all here for all the different emotions. I cherish my journey and I won’t ever give up on it. Being able to work for myself has allowed me become the best version of myself and I love this version of me.

I would love to encourage anyone thing or starting a side gig or business, and wondering whether to go ahead with it or not. My advice is to go ahead with all the way and see how you get on. If you succeed yay and if you don’t at least you now know what not to do. No experience is ever wasted so just do it. You never know how successfully it may go and if it doesn’t work, you can try something else and ticked that off.

What vision do you need to bring to life? Have you started working on it? Do tell in the comments section below. Let’s chat.
