Are you seeking calmness, peace of mind, joy, vibrant health, greater energy, positive relationships and fulfillment in life? Do you wish to be stress-free and worry-free? You can enjoy all these benefits and much more, with meditation. Meditation offers innumerable benefits for your body, mind and spirit. The rest you gain in meditation is deeper than the deepest sleep. The deeper your rest, the more dynamic your activity is.

      I hope so too Kelli. There was many benefits to meditation. There are many highly successful people who are on the record crediting meditation as their own secret “go-to” technique for generating transformative ideas. While we all want change in the world, the first thing that needs to change is “us.” Meditation bridges that gap wonderfully, upgrading our minds and reprogramming our thoughts to easily manifest whatever end goal we desire — with abundance, health, and happiness just the beginning.

    This is so true. I used to regularly meditate, though when I started I didn’t consider it meditating and I always felt much better. The last two years I haven’t been able to do my regular meditation due to family illnesses and events. I have been craving the down time / relaxation. I will definitely be finding the time in my schedule to make it happen. Thank you for your post.

      I am glad you got inspired by the post Laura. Meditation does have a lot of benefits. Meditation is the best way to train our mind to be a more precise, better quality, higher functioning data filter, making you a more mindful, happy person in the process.

    Hi Garima,

    In a busy world getting away from the busyness is so important. Prayer and meditation makes us more patient as well. Don’t you think?
