How to meditate
Choose a clean, distraction-free spot or room in your home, though you can do it sitting in your chair at the office during lunch-hour, too! If it is at home, it is better not to use this space for any other activity.
Ensure the lighting is soothing and the ventilation sufficient – and the noise-levels under control.
You can listen to guided meditations, but it is better to start with a group.
Begin with a 21 days meditation challenge, if you do it with a group it will become a wonderful experience where everyone will support and encourage each other.
There has been researched by mental health specialists (from Harvard University as an example) that it takes 21 days for the brain to develop cellular memory and retain or quit a behavioral pattern.
Meditate at the same time every day, so it becomes a sustainable routine. Early morning is an optimal time.
Don’t overdo it. Start by meditating for 10-15 minutes. Keep a timer
Shut up – the cellphone.
Tell your family you are on Do Not Disturb mode for a short spell of time, till your meditation is over.
Wearing comfortable clothes, will certainly help.
Blessings with Love and Light
Transmute anger into forgiveness, peace and love…
Whoever is HUMBLE to men for GOD’S sake, may GOD exalt his or her EMINENCE.
Now to begin a Monday I couldn’t find a better resiliency message than the following I shared from Rumi.
Wings of hope languish from lack of use.
When wings dissipate and weaken, life begins to lose its value.
Every cell in your body is created to rise challenges…
Your life is meant to confront everything that holds you captive.
Don’t sit at the bottom of the well not caring about salvation.
Listen to the voice within calling to you. Reach for eminence beyond your own maturity. (Rumi)
Last but not least;
Remember that we are the architects of Today and Tomorrow.
