    9 Ways Meditation Can Improve Your Life

    Do you meditate? I love my daily meditation practice and have found that my days go so much smoother when I carve out time in the morning to quiet my mind and connect with Spirit. Here is what I’ve learned over the years about meditation: Meditation is the process and practice of focusing your attention. When you focus your mind, you are able to concentrate better.

When you gain power, you start feeling more relaxed, you enjoy life, you can accomplish more, and your health improves.…

    Your Brain on Meditation

    Meditation is a daily practice for me because it has so many benefits. But what really fascinates me is what it does to our brains! Research suggests that meditation operates through a combination of several distinct mechanisms: attention regulation, body awareness, emotion regulation, and a change in perspective on the self. Each component is believed to assist in various aspects of our lives, and when functioning together, the cumulative process claims to lend an enhanced capacity for self-regulation – the ability to control our own thought, affect, behavior, or attention. The practice of meditation allows you to develop a stronger command of the mind, which stays with you long after…

    Basic Meditation for Conscious Creators

    Meditation is one of twenty-two processes that Abraham (also known as Abraham-Hicks), a non-physical group of spiritual teachers, offers in the book Ask and It Is Given by Esther and Jerry Hicks. A quote from the book explains why they teach meditation: “We playfully tell our physical friends that the reason we teach the process of meditation is because it is easier for most of you to clear your minds, having no thought, than it is for you to think pure, positive thoughts. For when you quiet your mind, you offer no thought; and when you do so, you offer no resistance; and when you have activated no resistant thought,…

    12 Meditation Tips for Deliberate Creators

    “There is no right or wrong in this process of meditation. There is nothing that you should be reaching for. This is a state of allowing.

I’m allowing Source Energy to flow purely through me.” –…

    How to Prepare for Meditation

    When I began meditating years ago, I tried sitting on the floor with my legs crossed as I had seen so many others do in pictures and on television. Within a couple minutes, my back began to ache and my knees begged to be straightened. My thoughts were all over the place and I had no idea how to contain them. I quickly became frustrated. It took a series of attempts over time to find out what worked best for me. Now, I practice meditation with enthusiasm and comfort. My beginning experiences taught me that the when, where, and how you meditate have a powerful impact on the quality of…
