Firstly lets gather a basic understanding of what meditation is. Meditation is a wonderful technique for resting the analytical mind (to understand what the analytical mind is continue to follow my blogs) and moving to a higher level of consciousness. It is a proven technique allowing us to understand ourselves on all levels and finally reaching our true selves. This is where true happiness and love is found for us all.
Meditation is not a part of any religion; it is a science, which means that the process of meditation follows a particular order, has definite principles, and produces results that can be verified.
For me the results are wonderful, not only was meditation a huge part of my physical recovery after my spinal injury, but is an integral part of my life now.
On a day to day basis meditation offers me the perfect mindset to be the best me I can be. Whenever we are faced with decisions in life, no matter how big or small, we are all guilty of making decisions based on how we feel at that time and often this is the reason why we make incorrect decisions that self sabotage our personal reality.
Meditation removes my analytical mind and this is the mind that provokes my survival emotions; survival emotions are anger and fear based. Fear creates limiting beliefs within us and anger creates judgement amongst other things and neither of those are feelings which are going to make decisions which create happiness and abundance in our lives.
Meditation has many forms and variations for many different purposes but I will discuss the one I use on a daily basis. Daily meditation creates love and gratitude within me and this allows me to be calm and remain composed in any situation. As you know your inner world creates your outer world.
My morning meditation is simply to relax and focus all of my attention on my body or the space around me. This technique teaches my mind to be far less busy and not to overthink, as you will be able to relate, this is where we often bring ourselves down.
The most profound technique to practise in meditation is gaining control of where you put your attention; Every time you have a thought be conscious of it and simply move your attention back to your body. Keep doing this with every meditation, everyday, and you will soon be amazed at the results.
