MEDITATION FOR WELL BEING



   Meditation is one of the greatest tools available to the human race at this time. It can promote peace of mind, better health, feelings of happiness and joy, and an overall sense of well-being. The holiday season can be very stressful or depressing for a lot of people. It is a great time to begin a meditation practice to defeat those holiday blahs. One of the easiest and profound meditation practices that I have used is as follows: sit quietly on the floor or in a chair, close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. Then become aware of your body, how it is positioned on the floor or in the chair. Focus on this for a few moments, and then begin to expand your consciousness into the room around you. Just focus on the calm, peaceful empty space around you. Feel the presence of the divine in that space, or the presence of your guides or angels. Just focus on those higher spiritual energies that are alive in the air around you. Try to keep your focus on those energies and just rest in their presence. If you find interesting or pertinent words or phrases floating up into your mind, that is perfectly normal, do not fight it. This meditation technique is more about focusing on the presence and energy of the higher beings, and receiving comfort and guidance from them during this time of mental relaxation. Of course, you do not want to focus on any distracting thoughts that come into your mind, if they do arise, simply acknowledge them and brush them aside. Then go back to focusing on the higher presence or angels in the room around you. If you like, you can expand your consciousness even further and go out beyond the room you're in and into nature. You can even expand your consciousness into the cosmos and just feel that divine presence among the stars and galaxies. If you so desire, you can even ask for guidance and advice for a specific situation during this time of meditation. Simply state your desire before beginning the meditation process, and then just see what comes to you during the session. You do not need to meditate for a long time to reap its benefits. You can set a timer for as little as 10 minutes, or go for 20 or 30 minutes if you wish to do it longer. But just by doing this for 10 minutes a day, you'll begin to notice how much more positive and light you will begin to feel in your everyday life. It is also perfectly okay to light candles or play relaxing, celestial music or nature sounds lowly in the background as you meditate. Anything that enhances the experience for you is important and permitted. Try this technique, and you will notice a difference in the way you feel within the first 1 to 2 weeks; happy meditating!
