Reclaiming your essence
There are pockets of our world where our "spirit" or our essence, our true being, is not given as much recognition or attention as our mind and our body. Yet, I believe, that our spiritual well-being is at the heart of our physical and mental well-being.
Through meditation you can connect to the inner part of you that has enormous power you can utilise. Meditation is practiced daily in many cultures and is known to be a way of:
- reaching inner peace
- connecting to a higher source / vibration
- tapping into and developing intuition
When Buddha was asked “What have you gained from meditation?” He replied, “Nothing. However, I have lost anger, anxiety, depression, insecurity, and a fear of old age and death.”
Ancient cultures had a great respect for matters of the soul. In some areas of the world spiritual health is still considered as the primary concern. There are also the teachings of great psychologists such as Maslow, for whom material and emotional satisfaction were merely stepping stones on the path to "self-actualisation".
Finding your "self" is an eternal journey therefore it is worth putting in attention to a more holistic approach to life. With the right approach you can recognise the light within and enjoy everything this integrated existence has to offer. You can consciously design your experience to however, you want it to be.
Through meditation you can access your pure consciousness which is an incredibly powerful state of coherence, of knowing and being. Your body is able to go into complete rest and repair mode and your nervous system will become attuned to a more expansive state of consciousness. With consistent practice you will find that:
- your heart expands (with unconditional love)
- your sense of connectivity increases
- your understanding grows
- you experience nature and sense natural order more deeply
- you can tune in to your deepest essence
