The benefits of meditation


Meditation is the ‘Portal’ to inner worlds,
Just 15 minutes per day over a period of time will change your perception of your outer world. Meditation is an accumulative effect, so the more you practice, the more profound the experience. The anxiety and fear of living in this 3 dimensional world will dissipate as your vibration rises and the mundane things that got you down in the past will not impact you nearly as severely as they did prior to starting a daily meditation practice.
The benefits of meditation are manifold. A calm mind, good concentration, clarity of perception, improvement in communication, blossoming of skills and talents, unshakeable inner strength, healing, the ability to connect to an inner source of energy, relaxation, rejuvenation and good luck are all natural results of meditating regularly.

The key is to tune into your breath, thoughts don’t matter – breathe in through your nose for the count of 4 and out through your mouth for the count of 6. Breathe slowly, in long measured breaths, this way you are not in danger of hyperventilating. Sit upright on a firm chair or cross legged on the floor, with your spine straight and your neck and head aligned with your spine, as if suspended from the ceiling above you, by a piece of thread.
Now, as you breathe out for the count of 6, make friction in your throat. This sounds almost like a long deep sigh. There is a mechanism in the throat which when activated by throat friction, will start to open the 3rd Eye (Brow chakra).

When a thought comes, bless it and let it go, return to your breath. While you are concentrating on your breathing, it’s difficult to think. After some practice the thoughts will slow down to the point where they won’t interfere with your meditation.

Meditation is best practiced first thing in the morning, immediately after waking and before checking e-mails, interacting with others or going out. Sit in a safe, quiet place, close your eyes and begin breathing. Less than 15 minutes per day will not be very effective, so please try to do at least 15 minutes per day.
There are many recorded Guided Meditations, which are a good aid to getting you started and comfortable on the path to a daily mediation practice but should not be used in place of your own, quiet time spent meditating on your own.
