Meditation is a form of stress management allowing your mind to experience peace and love within your heart and mind. Meditation gives back control so that no matter what is happening externally in your life being positive or negative, still you can develop control over your thoughts and thus control your emotions. Anyone can control and master the way you respond to life adversities and thinking processes.
“Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one’s weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart” Mahatma Gandhi
During meditation practice we balance our energetic fields also known as “Chakras”. Different energy centres within and around our body are influenced by your thinking habits. In other words, the things you concentrate on the most-money, relationships, spirituality & so on-affect your energy centres, these centres look like fans. “Chakras” means “wheel” in the ancient language of Sanskrit.
Your chakras radiate and receive energy constantly. If you hold negative thoughts, your chakras become dirty with dense, dark energy. Thus insufficient energy within our body will make us feel sluggish and out of balance. Through a balanced state our body can experience harmony and bliss.
Meditation is not always easy for beginners, it takes time and practice to make progress. It works best if you can make it part of daily practice, even if it is only for 10 minutes a day. Keep in mind that practice makes perfect!!
