We’ve talked several times about sitting in silent meditation and contemplation.
Silent meditation forms in you a wide and deep channel for Love, through which you live a soul-prospering life.
Here is a reminder of the many benefits of a regular practice of this:
~Centering and grounding – let go and release the drama in your life; the drama you create as well of that belonging to others;
~Understand and feel your interconnectedness to the world – you are not alone;
~Align and connect with the Divine within – there is Something Out There that’s far bigger than you, me, the world, the universe…;
~Relaxing – reduces tension and blood pressure;
~Calming – reduces insomnia and increases restorative sleep;
~Boost neuroplasticity – a fancy word for your brain growing new cells and making new connections between neurons, which increases the health and strength of your brain;
~Clears your mind – you can think clearer, more creatively, see connections and opportunities, thus enabling you to make better decisions;
~Peaceful heart and spirit – lessen the likelihood of your emotions getting the better of you;
~Gratitude – aiding you in noticing the gifts, beauty, and happy surprises of Life;
~Increases well-being – you come to understand Life and your Mission on a deeper level;
~Helpfulness – you are more likely to reach out a helping hand to others;
~Joy, contentment, happiness – you come to understand that you are valuable and valued, which is the foundation of true self-esteem and self-worth.
You can do it! Go for it!
