Meditation - A Simple Technique to Get You Started

Life is fast and it's hard to keep up with the pace.
As a result, we tend to lose focus on the important stuff.
Because of our earthly needs that must be met, we neglect the importance of inner peace.
Without inner peace we may feel that our life is full of stress, is unfulfilled and confusing.
We feel unhappy and disconnected.
This is the primary purpose of meditation It allows you to watch the flow of your thoughts, it helps you to "turn off" the noise and distraction of the outside world and, more significantly, it provides new energy and breaks up the boredom of your daily routine.
Meditation should be a part of your everyday routine.
It offers satisfaction and renewal of spirit, it refreshes and brings life to every part of your being and is an excellent tool for stress relief.
It requires very little time and as result of a regular meditation practice, you'll learn more about yourself than ever before.
Your ability to focus and concentrate will increase and you'll receive a clearer sense of direction.
For beginners, here's is a very simple meditation technique that will nurture your body and soul.
With regular practice, it will change your life, perception and purpose.
The first step is to find a quiet and comfortable place where you won't be disturbed.
Sit in a comfortable position.
You can sit with your legs crossed on a carpet or in a chair.
The exact position doesn't matter, as long as you're comfortable and relaxed.
Gently close your eyes to shut out the outside world.
Closing your eyes directs your attention inward, which is the main goal of meditation.
This is another important factor when meditating.
Watch the space and the darkness.
Place your attention on the flow of thoughts that pass through your mind, then gently let them go.
If more thoughts arise, simply brush them aside.
As you do this, your subconscious becomes more aware.
Imagine a beautiful ball of white light above your head.
Imagine it descending downward to encompass your head, your shoulders, your torso, your legs and feet.
See yourself fully embraced by this white light.
Breathe in this light and allow it to fill your entire being.
Imagine the light filling you until you are one with it.
Repeat this mantra: "I am safe, I am protected and I am loved.
When you're ready to return to the normal state of awareness, slowly start moving your feet, then your legs, your arms, then your head.
Do this meditation for at least ten minutes, twice a day.
Preferably, at the start and at the end of the day.
It only takes a short time but you'll start noticing the difference right away.
You owe it to yourself to devote just a few minutes each day to reconnect with your spirit through meditation.
