Most of us would agree that meditation has benefits. And yet, most of us also admit that we rarely practice it. Why is that?
For many of us, meditation requires discipline. We have to sit down and shut off the distractions. We have to focus on our life force. We have to clear our minds and quiet our thoughts. We have to ignore the noise and tune out the chatter.
And we hate it!
As soon as we sit down and close our eyes to meditate, we start thinking about work, family, friends, or whatever else keeps us distracted. We start worrying about what we did wrong. We start comparing our performance against others. We start wondering whether we’re getting enough sleep. We start feeling guilty and self-conscious.
And before we know it, we’re back to distracting ourselves again.
Meditating is hard. It’s difficult. It’s uncomfortable.
Which is precisely why it works.
When we meditate, we break free from the limitations of our daily lives. We escape the noise and distraction. We tune out the chattering voices in our heads. We calm our nerves. We relax. We recharge.
And once we complete our meditation, we come back refreshed.
The beauty of meditation is that it doesn’t require effort. It doesn’t require willpower. It doesn’t need discipline. It doesn’t require concentration.
All it takes is awareness. Awareness of the tingling sensation of the Kundalini Shakthi, observation of its pulsations, ignoring everything else within and without.
Once we develop this awareness, meditation becomes effortless. We can meditate anywhere. Anytime.
Meditation is Not Just About Relaxation
Meditation has long been considered a relaxation exercise.
Meditation is often taught through techniques designed to relax the mind and body.
And while that is essential, meditation is also about something else entirely.
Meditation is about focusing attention on the physical sensation of the pressure at Ajna or any other chakra.
Not your thoughts. Your feelings. Your worries. Your fears. Your pain. Anything.
By directing your focus on the vibrations, you break free from distraction; you clear your head and gain perspective. And you discover the peace within.
You practice Kundalini meditation. You turn off the autopilot. You slow down. You reconnect with the eternal force. And you connect with the source of all joy and wisdom.
It doesn’t have to be complicated. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It doesn’t have many rules.
Just sit. Close your eyes. Relax. Breathe normally. Focus your attention between your eyebrows. And notice what happens.
Maybe you meditate daily, but only for five minutes. Or you meditate for twenty minutes daily.
Whatever your routine is, chances are good that meditation has played an essential role in helping you manage stress and focus.
In my years of practice, I’ve found that meditation helps me understand myself and others. It helps me connect deeply with my intuition and creativity. And it allows me to tap into the wisdom within.
In other words, meditation is an answer.
To find answers, you need to open your mind to the possibilities. You need to expand your perspective. You need to look beyond the surface level. You must extend your mind to the vast universe and shrink it to the tiniest energy particle.
And that’s what meditation does. It opens your eyes to the truth. It allows you to see the ever-expanding consciousness and the compressive fractional state. It gives you access to the source of all knowledge.
As a result, meditation provides unique insight into the nature of reality. It reveals the patterns behind human behaviour. It uncovers the reasons behind our decisions.
And that’s why meditation can help us find answers.
Meditation is an answer. And it’s a powerful one. It shows us who we indeed are. It reveals the patterns in our lives. It clarifies our confusion and shows us what we want.
It’s a beautiful thing.
What do you think? Do you meditate? Does meditation provide an answer for you? How does it help to find answers?
I look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you for being a source of inspiration for me.
Love you and Be Blessed by the Divine!
