Tune-In With Meditation and Mindfulness

Meditation and mindfulness are among the most important activities you can do to liberate yourself from the many impediments of the mind.  These impediments lead to stress and dissatisfaction.  Stress, along with diet, are the main sources of dis-ease, unhappiness and a lack of personal freedom and inner peace.   

Our stressful states impact those around us.  In fact if we want to experience greater peace in the world around us, we need to begin by learning how to effectively process our emotions, and better manage stress in our own lives.  

Meditation and mindfulness are the keys to discovering who you really are, your true desires, and freedom from the reactionary 'parts' of our mind that cause us much distress and dissatisfaction. 

It can help us better navigate the challenges that arise as a natural part of life, with less impact to our health and happiness.

Meditation and mindfulness helps us connect with the inner witness.  When we connect with this inner witness, we realize that we are both the doer of our lives, and the one observing what is being done.  In other words, there is another aspect to who we are beyond just what we 'think.'  There is a divine aspect to who we are that transcends the dualistic and materialistic aspects of reality, and although 'unseen' it is no less 'real.'

We are continually at the whims of our monkey mind ~ that incessant inner chatter that always worries, doubts, and badgers us on a daily basis ~ until we recognize that this is just what these parts do.  

Meditation and mindfulness helps us to connect with the greater aspect of who we are and learn to simply witness the mental fluctuations, and arising emotional reactions, without reacting in regretful ways.  It helps us feel empowered, rather than a slave to, or over- identified with one of our many 'parts.'

Science has finally proven what Buddhist monks, and the ancient sages of the yogic tradition have always known - meditation and mindfulness are essential to experiencing freedom, inner peace, and lasting happiness and health.

According to Anmol Mehta in his Mastery of Meditation, Yoga and Zen program which I recently completed, here are some of the top benefits you will reap from cultivating a regular meditation practice:

  • Enlightenment ~ the realization of who you really are as a divine being, beyond the dual nature of reality and materialism
  • Greater peace and tranquility
  • Opens channels of communication with all levels of being, allowing for access to guidance from your Higher/Divine Self; increased intuition and wisdom
  • Less identification and attachment to false egos and false identities, allowing for an Increased joy as more of your true Self shines through
  • Improved relationships with a more natural sense of love and compassion bubbling up spontaneously from within
  • Decreased stress; better health
  • Improved brain functioning
  • Discovery of your true desires, gifts and talents

Additionally, scientific studies have found that regular daily meditation can help with:

There are many good reasons to practice meditation and mindfulness.
