Do You Struggle With Being Able To Meditate?

Hiya,

Many people have indicated to me that they have an inability to get still and centred in order to meditate. For some people, doing and active meditation such as going for a drive, or a walk on the beach may be a better way to 'collect yourself' as I call it. Collecting your thoughts and processing and digesting thoughts and feelings on life, events, desires, spirit etc.

Jamie Lyn has written an easy to understand article on the subject which I've included below. I believe it's an important part of a successful persons day, and you are a successful person, so enjoy the article.

Why meditate? and a quick and simple technique Anyone canincorporate into their daily rountine:
Why Meditate? -The reasons and benefits are many and profound! Modern science has shown that relaxation of the mind has ahealing effect on the body, helping people to reduce stress and,as a result, prevent and treat a whole host of mental andphysical dieases and ailments - even something as simple as thecommon cold.
In a meditative state, metabolic processes, includingrespiration and blood flow, slow down. Key words—SLOW DOWN.
Meditation is a technique that helps us focus and calms the mindresulting in a relaxed and restful state of physical and mentalbeing.
Meditation is generally focused on one constant thing,usually your breath. It is an effective tool to gain mindcontrol, self-awareness and understanding that eventually leadto inner calm and peacefulness.
And meditating does not require any great length of time. Itonly takes some conscious effort. You need only take fiveminutes to slow down, focus on the center of your body and letthe rest of the moment happen.
The point is to achieve a sense of being centered and letting goof every day concerns.
Meditation is simply taking a moment to BE. A big mistake that alot of people make is thinking it is too time consuming orcomplicated and then not giving it a try at all.
A very quick and simple meditation technique is to concentrateon and control your breathing pattern for a few minutes. Evernotice when someone says the word “breathe," you do? That rightthere is controlling your pattern.
Take a deep breath in and slowly let it out- as simple as it maysound - you have just done a form of meditation!Try it for as little as 5-10 minutes a day when need be and see howthis simple technique can calm, center and elevate your mind,body & spirit!
Until next time....
To Your Mind, Body & Spirit!
Many blessings ~

To Have More You Need To Become More

Hiya,

How's life with you? I've been a bit belated getting my next blog post to you. This time I'd like to share with you an excerpt from one of my mentors, Jim Rohn. Jim Rohn is regarded as one of the foremost business philosophers of the twentieth century, and has been mentor to the likes of Anthony Robbins, Mark Hughes, Mike Litman and Rod Moore, just to name a few. So please enjoy these couple of minutes of inspiration:

The Miracle of Personal Development
By Jim Rohn

One day Mr. Shoaff said, "Jim, if you want to be wealthy and happy, learn this lesson well: Learn to work harder on yourself than you do on your job."Since that time I've been working on my own personal development. And I must admit that this has been the most challenging assignment of all. This business of personal development lasts a lifetime.You see, what you become is far more important than what you get. The important question to ask on the job is not, "What am I getting?" Instead, you should ask, "What am I becoming?" Getting and becoming are like Siamese twins: What you become directly influences what you get. Think of it this way: Most of what you have today you have attracted by becoming the person you are today.I've also found that income rarely exceeds personal development. Sometimes income takes a lucky jump, but unless you learn to handle the responsibilities that come with it, it will usually shrink back to the amount you can handle.If someone hands you a million dollars, you'd better hurry up and become a millionaire. A very rich man once said, "If you took all the money in the world and divided it equally among everybody, it would soon be back in the same pockets it was before."It is hard to keep that which has not been obtained through personal development.So here's the great axiom of life:To Have More Than You've Got, Become More Than You Are.This is where you should focus most of your attention. Otherwise, you just might have to contend with the axiom of not changing, which is:Unless You Change How You Are, You'll Always Have What You've Got.

Have a great day!

Your Independence Day

Hello,

Happy independence day to all our friends in the USA. I hope you had a great celebration!

How's your week been? Mine's been very eventful as I move forward with wedding investigations, which got me thinking about big life changes. We all have changes that we'd like to see in our lives, but maybe haven't been committed enough to pay the price for making the choices and taking the actions to make these things happen.

But did you know that you don't have to wait one day longer to make these things happen for yourself. You no longer have to live from your past. Your past does not dictate what your future will be. You can make the changes to create a life that will be fulfilling, joyful and peaceful. It can start today with simple actions and choices.

It could be as simple as deciding to replace an old negative habit with a new positive one. It could be reading a book that could help you with the ideas and motivation to make healthier choices, decisions or goals for your life. Click Here to get some free life changing ebooks.

It could be as simple as forgiving someone for past mistakes, even if it's yourself. They can't change the past any more than you can, we can only learn from it and move on. So today, why not forgive, learn, choose or read to make a profound difference to your future. Let's you and I do something today, and everyday, that will make that difference.

yours positively
