Taking time each day to connect to the Divine will transform your life. That’s a bold statement, but one that is filled with truth. Here are just a few “benefits”!
1- You will ultimately discover that there is more to you than your body. You have heard that before; even Sting sings about it when he tells you that “we are spirits in a material world”, but there is a profound difference between this idea on an intellectual level and having experienced your spirit during meditation. You can actually feel the truth of who you really are in that quiet connection to Source.
2-On a mundane level, that sense of peace attained during meditation can be carried over into your day to day activities. People in your life feel your patience, your love and your joy. You find that things go more smoothly for you because you literally are one with the Universe. You always are and always will be; the difference is that you are able to be more conscious of it.
3-Your intuition is expanded. You quiet the left-brain chatter and tune in to your right brain, the seat of your intuition. More of those “intuitive hits” happen, and that is spirit communicating with you, and it won’t ever steer you wrong. Intuition is a gift and the more you acknowledge it and act upon it, the stronger it becomes and it will come more often.
Many people say to me that it is too hard for them to meditate. They can’t get their mind to be quiet. You may have a chatty mind, but don’t set the expectation that you have to attain “monk status” and be a perfect meditator. Just begin. Meditate for 5 minutes a day for seven days. Then set another goal: 10 minutes a day for another seven days. You will come to the point where meditation is a part of your life with such deep meaning that you will not want to go a day without it. If I can help you in any way with this, please let me know.
