Did you know the natural state of the mind is peace? It may be hard to believe but peace is something we all felt before the mind became tarnished with worry, judgement, greed, and planning. If you spend time missing or regretting the past and feeling anxious about the future you are missing the beauty of the present moment completely. Imagine how liberating it would be to free your mind from thinking too much and explore consciousness resulting in greater peace, love and contentment. So how do we get back to that oneness with our own divinity? It could be as simple as a few minutes a day spent meditating. We have all heard the term meditation but what does it actually do?
Meditation enables us to break the cycle of thinking too much. The mind is constantly striving to create problems, looking back to the past and worrying about the future. Through meditation we can let go of our thoughts and come back to the Now. The more relaxed the mind is the easier we can come back to, and remain in, the present moment. By freeing our body of stressful, negative thoughts we can facilitate healing, maintain good health and improve sleep.
There are many types of meditation. Don't be put off if you have tried one before that has not worked for you. If you are interested in attending a course check out our workshop page.
