The Power of Meditation

Together with the yogis in New Delhi, India

Meditation is an ancient spiritual tool Yogis and Sages use, mainly in the Himalayan Region. Incredibly, this practice has been preserved and passed down through generations.

Many studies and research have been done to prove the claims of its healing results in the body and mind. Indeed, it's a beautiful life tool for everyone who wants relaxation and calmness of the body, mind, and spirit.

I've been a meditation practitioner for several months, which has dramatically impacted my life. I've become calmer with my emotions and can take control of difficult situations. It has also improved my memory. I became more focused and aware of my work and whatever was happening in my surroundings.

Meditation has helped to correct my breathing pattern since I am a shallow and fast breather. Still, now I've learned that deep and regular breathing habits are essential for physical health and emotional and mental health.

Meditation is a tool for spirituality, and it's true because I believe that the Divine Beings are present in moments of silence, especially when you are ready to have a quiet moment and able to listen to inner voices.

Meditation uses particular locations, body positions, and hand seals, which have significant meanings. To be able to concentrate well during meditation, you must be in a place that is free from noise and distraction. It is also appropriate to be in an open space or well-ventilated room. The back must be aligned and straight, and the legs should be placed in a lotus or semi-lotus position, or you may sit straight on a chair to make it more practical. Hands are placed on the lap with hands facing upward. Hand seals must be used because it's one of the core essences of meditation as a tool for spirituality. Joining your index finger and thumb together symbolizes spiritual power while joining the thumb and the middle finger together would mean material energy or power. Joining the thumb, index, and middle finger together would be the best practice as it is more balanced--the material and spiritual power combined.

I meditate whenever I feel stressed, fatigued, and bored, and I've proven it very effective in regaining vitality. It makes me feel more relaxed and have peace of mind. Meditation has become an indispensable tool for me, and I consider it valuable in all levels of health; physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health and well-being.

Meditation was practiced initially using one's imagination and visualization, but for busy people, it's made more accessible and practical by purchasing a voice-guided reflection available in the market today.

There are some meditation DVDs and books on the market today. It can also be purchased through the online store and available on some of the popular video-sharing websites. However, carefully choose which meditation products to buy and consider the author's expertise and reputation.

I'm fortunate to have been taught by an absolute master of meditation. He spent some of his beautiful moments in the Himalayas and was mentored by great masters. He has a deeper understanding of meditation practices and their hidden dangers. The knowledge and wisdom I've gained from him are beneficial in my practice and teaching others through seminars on special meditation programs he designed and created.

If your life has been transformed through meditation's benefits and healing results, you must also start to try it and see how it changes your life's ideal and perspective.
