For many, meditation brings up images of people giving up a physical life and fully focusing on a spiritual life. While this represents one aspect of meditation, meditation is not just about devoting one’s self to a totally spiritual focus. Meditation is also for enhancing your entire life, including your work, relationships, communications and all aspects of your creativity.
Meditation can help you increase your energy, improve your health and focus your attention on anything you do. All of these things can help you be more creative and productive in your entire life. When you practice meditation as a part of your daily health and well-being program, you add a new vitality to everything you create. All it takes is some time each day to bring a higher energy into your life.
Many will ask: Where do I find time to meditate? You can begin with five minutes and build on that. You can take the first five minutes to meditate about a convenient time for you to give five minutes to yourself. Giving yourself a quiet time to turn within and reflect on you, your creations and your relationship with the big picture can vastly change the way you live your life. You may discover greater meaning to what you do or the courage to change your life so you can do what you truly desire.
Meditation helps you slow down, let go of everyone else’s agenda, gain perspective of your issues, and gain control of your emotions. The clarity you develop with meditation helps you focus on what is important to you. You emerge from your meditation with a simpler, clearer view of life and the focus to help you move forward with greater ease.
Meditation can be used to help you focus on any aspect of your life. You can meditate on a business issue, a communication challenge, a human relationship, your relationship to your God, or a creative project. By turning within to yourself, you will learn to know yourself and discover your unique answers. You will stimulate and validate your intuitive abilities and be better able to make sound and effective decisions. Meditation saves a great deal of time and increases productivity by helping you release unnecessary problems and emotions and to create a clear, grounded focus.
