While it takes time and practice, everyone can experience the benefit of meditation. The benefit of meditation includes releasing stress, improving health, increasing focus, developing self-knowledge and connecting with spirit...
1. Releasing Stress
Learning how to meditate is an excellent way to release stress. For many busy people, simply stopping activity, sitting down and focussing on yourself can be a huge relief. In addition, meditation offers many tools for stress relief including, centering, grounding and techniques for releasing stressful energies. It's no secret...one benefit of meditation is to be more calm and peaceful.
Modern medicine is starting to appreciate what mystics have known for thousands of years...meditation is good for you! Meditation helps decrease stress levels which prevents illness. It can also speed recovery times after illness and surgery. Progressive hospitals are now incorporating meditation for healing.
3. Increasing Focus
Distractions often prevent us from knowing ourselves and making healthy choices. Meditation develops your focus and concentration. While it may be a challenge at the beginning, your ability to concentrate will increase with regular meditation practice. Learning to focus makes it possible to inwardly connect with yourself and then follow-through with healthy courses of action in your outer life.
4. Developing Self-Knowledge
Another major benefit of meditation is getting to know yourself on a deeper level. You can discover your authentic Self and know your own energy. When you know yourself, you can know what you really want to do with your life. Meditation is an excellent way to deeply connect with yourself, so you create a healthy, meaningful life.
5. Connecting with Spirit
In the busy-ness of life, it's easy to lose your connection to spirit. There's one more job to be done, one more person wants your attention, one more errand needs to be run and, before you know it, there's no space left for spirit. By meditating, you make time to connect with your sense of Self as spirit. You can also connect with the Divine.
The Four R's of Meditating:
In many ways meditating is like giving yourself a mini spiritual retreat. Meditating is about retreating/pulling back from life, reconnecting with yourself on a deeper level, and then returning to your life from a healthier place. You can give yourself regular mini-spiritual retreats in daily life--just remember to meditate!
