One of my fav posts ??@worldoffreedompd @worldoffreedompd - Gratitude is the highest frequency You can tune in to if you want to attract wonderful things in to your life. Start by taking stock of everything you have now and appreciating it deeply, remember to give more of yourself, whether it be time, advice, love and support to those around you. When you dream, look past that dream to something even better for yourself and even for others. Don't forget to take better care of your body, mind and soul, get enough rest, eat a bit better than you have been, do things that are exciting and fuel your passions. The only person in this life you need to impress is yourself, self love follows through to every aspect of your life. Be Kind, Compassionate and practice empathy - when you learn to appreciate differences in opinion/perspectives you grow even larger and brighter. Forget about making comparisons, you are as unique as your thumbprint and so is the other person, you can only have your version of bliss so learn to be satisfied with that and let go of past traumas and by all means don't even bother with current fears as those are only illusions of perceived harm that your brain projects in order to keep you one step ahead of the game. Forgive yourself during this time, as well as any others who you perceive have wronged you. Life is only happening through your decisions and actions. Stay committed to your goals and believe that everything is always working out for the highest good of all. No excuses - the story you tell yourself about anything is the key. As Mohamed Ali once proclaimed "I hated every minute of training, but I said - Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion." Love yourself more each day by being grateful for your life and your relationships, everyone is operating at their own level awareness and may not necessarily be on yours, give love when in doubt, as the love you receive is in direct proportion to the love you give. - #regrann - #regrann
Meditation Also Gives Something Else
I am very passionate about meditation and its benefits, anyone who knows me can attest to that. It is so much a part of me that I really cannot imagine living my life without it and I give it a plug whenever an opportunity to do so comes up.
Some of the greatest benefits for me have been my ability to tap into 'my lake of inner peace' whenever I need to, my connection with, and to, Spirit and Universal Energy, achievement of greater clarity and balance at the end of each session, and a sense of overall well-being.
Meditation also gave me something else.
The meditation journey for me involved profound inner change as I allowed myself to step into enlightenment. Once that door was opened for me, well, that was it… No turning back...ever! I was not expecting that pleasant surprise.
Enlightenment, for me, is such a strange thing, and of course is many things to many people. When I stepped into this state of being, I waited for the big fireworks to begin, hear the blaring trumpets and the voice of God (which I sometimes imagined would be kind of booming and earth shattering!). I am not really sure what else I expected but what I experienced was a deep sense of stillness and oneness. The door opened, I stepped through the doorway, and how I perceived life and my purpose here changed forever. The clarity with which I saw things in that moment almost blinded me – yet it was so gentle and kind.
This did not mean to say I ceased doing mundane things such as housework, paying bills, cooking and cleaning, etc. No, unfortunately that continued on and continues to this day and will in the future as well. Nope, for me enlightenment meant that I simply knew things and accepted them as they are; some may call this ‘Truth’.
I believe that Truth or Enlightenment is the space of knowing absolutely everything about all things at the exact same time without pinpointing one solitary thing.
Truth is much like acknowledging anything really, in a passive way. Words are completely inadequate in describing this sense of being. All I can say is that it is simply too HUGE to explain with words but it is something that I experience whenever I meditate or still my mind.
This does not mean that I am immune to daily issues; however I am not impacted by them to the same degree as I was before either. I can honestly say that while there is chaos that reigns around me I can easily tap into ‘my lake of inner peace’. It has helped me through the many trials and tribulations that I call my life. I thank myself and the Universe daily that I started practicing meditation when I did.
The beauty of it is that meditation is open to anyone who is willing to put in the time and practice (it took me a few months to really get going). Once you begin this journey, you will notice how much more peaceful, centered and balanced you have become.
I have often heard someone say… "I'd love to meditate because of my anxiety and stress levels, however I have absolutely no time..."
If you feel you have next to no time, which many do not have and sometimes I don't – however you would really love to begin meditating because you believe that there are benefits for doing so, please consider this… Three minutes is the duration of a passing conversation with a work colleague at the elevator door or water cooler, three minutes browsing through a magazine at the store checkout or news stand, or three minutes admiring a merchandise display inside your favorite store. You could do a three minute breath meditation, three minutes of journal writing, three minutes focusing on an object, or even take a three minute walk. See! In next to no time at all you could be meditating and accessing your own ‘lake of inner peace’!
Meditation could bring about profound changes in your life too, as well as help you achieve overall well-being, peacefulness, clarity and balance, and a deep connection to Spirit, Universal Energy and Yourself. There are over 7 billion people on this planet so your experience will be different than mine and others’.
If you have never tried meditation before, why not try it sometime soon, you just might thoroughly enjoy the benefits it can bring into your own life.
