When did we become so disconnected? So caught up in fear and time pressure and ego? There is so much focus on self and achievements that are materialistic and little to do with connection and love. And how the media plays on our egos and thoughts of lack!
Our brain is wired to see the negative in everything because that is how we can protect ourselves from it. The media know this and use it to get your attention. That is why there is never good news! We then run off fear and not love.
For the last three years or so I have stopped looking outward and have been learning to look inward. That is really where all the answers are. Inside of you.
When you steer yourself away from all the external influences and look at how you perceive things your eyes are opened. For instance, what you dislike in others is usually something you dislike about yourself. If something that has been said upsets you, ask yourself why? Don’t act out, look in.
Meditation stills our minds. I don’t know about you, but mine can be downright chaotic! I actually learned that slowing down gives you time. Weird, right? but true. When you slow down your thoughts are clearer and you don’t spend half your time racing around in circles. When your thoughts are clearer you are able to manage your time better. When you manage your time better you prioritise and don’t waste time on insignificant things.
Taking the time to meditate connects you to your soul/higher self/spirit. You are more aware of what is really meaningful and that too gives you more time. You may think you don’t have time to meditate but really you can’t afford not too. It gives you time because you don’t worry about things that don’t matter. And because it slows you down.
Meditation is very beneficial to your physical and mental health. It lowers your blood pressure, teaches you to breathe better, calms you and relaxes you.
Most importantly, it keeps you connected to your authentic self. The more you meditate the more you will see that life is actually pretty good and you will feel better in touch with your fellow man. Not to mention Spirit.
Essential oils raise our vibration and can support you in meditation. Frankincense, Sandalwood, Roman Chamomile, Myrrh, and all of the Firs are great at helping connect us to spirit and our authentic selves. Any one of the yoga blends – Align, Anchor and Arise are beneficial also. I often use Balance blend after meditating to ground me again
I run meditation classes if that is something you are interested in and have a short guided meditation on my youtube channel.
