Raise institute: Raise institute Learn How To Meditate Slide2: Do you ever get that feeling that life is just overwhelming? Your mind is constantly filled with the chatter of thoughts, pressures, stress and obligations. You seem to always be either beating yourself up over what happened yesterday, or worrying about what is going to happen tomorrow. This can lead to feeling disconnected, empty and being out of sync with your life’s purpose and direction. You are unable to appreciate the now and the beauty and splendour of the magical moments that are happening all around you. Slide3: The good news is that you can find that elusive place of peace, joy and stillness. However in order to do that you must be willing to break-free from the mind and surrender to the soul. A willingness to go to a place where there is no judgement, only truth, love and purity. Slide4: Meditation is the road to that place. While prayer gives us the opportunity to speak to God, meditation is the act of listening to God. Meditation has been practiced for centuries and is an important component of numerous religious traditions and beliefs including Christianity, Islam, Buddhism and Hinduism. In its simplest form meditation is a discipline that involves turning the mind and attention inward, focusing on a single thought, image, object or feeling. It involves a conscious effort to self-regulate and quiet the mind in order to find meaning, purpose, connectivity and direction. Slide5: Why Meditate Meditation can help you manage stress, improve your ability to focus, deal with grief, fight off disease and find solutions to everyday problems. Even more important meditation will allow you to connect to the infinite power of the universe (God). Let’s take a look at some of these benefits in more detail: Physical Benefits: Meditation releases physical stress, reduces anxiety, muscle tension, slows blood flow, increases energy and reduces blood pressure. Slide6: Mental Benefits: Meditation enables the brain to work with clarity and focus. By using meditation one can bring calm resulting in the reduction of negative thinking, all-or-nothing thinking and catastrophic thinking. Emotional Benefits: Meditation can help remove emotions such as anger, resentment, and selfishness, allowing for experiences of forgiveness, acceptance, and tolerance. It can be said that through meditation you will begin to experience thinking from the heart versus thinking from the mind. Slide7: Spiritual Benefits: Meditation if often called the silent prayer. Through meditation you can hear the voice of God. You can connect to that part of you that is God’s image and likeness. As Psalms 139:13 states “for you created my in most being”. That part of you that is governed without judgement or fear. That part of you that holds your internal truth. By stilling the mind, meditation has the ability to remove the ego (the mind) allowing this connection to occur.
