For many people, meditation is seen as a hobby for those who have an interest in spirtuality. In the past and in ancient times, this has been the case. However, in today’s times, we are realizing meditation is not just for the few–those on the fringe with an interest in esoterics.
Meditation is enormously practical for every single person. As science is starting to understand and prove, energy is real, whether we can see it or not. Meditation has the effect of energizing the body (energy and physical bodies) and connecting us with the infinite source of energy to keep us charged. By charging our bodies with energy regularly, we stay physically healthier, we heal more rapidly, we stay younger, our minds are clearer, we feel calmer, sometimes we need less sleep, and much, much more.
I would be willing to bet that once you start meditating regularly for a few weeks to a couple of months, you will be so accustomed to the increased sense of vitality, you will wonder how you lived without it for so long. You will see and understand exactly why it is essential to your well-being.
As always when I write about meditation, I will recommend Master Choa Kok Sui’s Meditation on Twin Hearts–for beginners as well as advanced meditators. It is simple, yet extremely powerful. Available at www.pranichealing.com.
While you wait for your CD to arrive :), you can start now by sitting comfortably, breathing deeply from the abdomen, and relaxing every part of your body for 15 minutes. This is doubly effective when followed by a short prayer or invocation. This 15-20 minutes a day will turn into some of the most effectively, efficiently spent time of your day…as long as you remember to include it!
