Introducing Meditation

The first principle of meditation is to be able to focus your attention, with the aim to free consciousness, by switching off the busy ‘mind chatter’.  Meditation is achieved by focusing either on a particular object external to the body, or even a function of the body itself, such as breathing or your heartbeat.  Maintaining a single thought or idea may also be conducive to meditation.
Through meditation, a state of self-awareness, of equilibrium, optimum health, tranquility and the ability to really see, to hear and to be really present in your own life, are potential benefits.  The aim of meditation is to lead the body and mind to the highest states of sensitivity, perception and understanding. Meditation is the path towards the unlimited potential of human experience.
Meditation helps to relax the mind and body and lowers anxiety levels and reduces tension.  The meditative experience will be different for each individual, but the essential aim is the same.  Through the practice of meditation, much of what may seem like daily confusion and ‘mind chatter’ can actually be transmuted into a more harmonious internal reality.
The ultimate goal of meditation is ‘self-realization’.
There are a number of ways in which meditation can be useful.  For some it may be to find peace and relaxation, whilst for others it may be to access their personal spirituality.  Meditation is a key which can open the door to inner spiritual realms and there are many techniques that can be employed to help achieve the meditative state.

The Morning Mindfulness 16

There's an ideology I believe we must embrace at all times: Your life, your choices. Our ability to consciously exercise choice is tapping directly into our divine essence. There's a quote by Carl Jung that has assisted me throughout the years in regard to exercising choice, "Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate." In my area of work (consultation for those suffering from anxiety and depression), assisting clients with the understanding that they must make the conscious choice every moment of the day to become a better version of themselves is critical to their healing. They must make themselves aware that every decision they make has the support system of the thought, "Is this best for my healing and health?"  I understand that this requires an immense amount of self-awareness and responsibility, but the engagement of "controlling your fate" demands nothing less. So, throughout the day, examin
