Be A Meditator- Little more compassion, little less judgement

    More smiling, less worrying. More blessed, less stressed. More love, less hate. More compassion, less judgement. Don't we all want this?. However, desires are just passing thoughts, To make this a reality, we need to work on them. Meditation can set us on this path. After regular meditation, we will start feeling the change. " A little more compassion, a little less judgement.                                                                                                                                           Keep Meditating

Be A Meditator- Nothing remains same from one moment to another.

   Most of us spend our life collecting the choicest of things. Hold on to the people and possessions we love. Some of us think adventure is risky. It is sometimes hard to cross that bridge, try something new, or make that change, but once we do, we realize that things are usually never as bad as we imagine. However, nothing remains the same from one moment to another. We must learn to change as life changes. Regular practice of meditation can help us realise it.                                                                                                                                                                           Keep Meditating

Be A Meditator- Our breath certainly helps us in unpacking the baggage we come with.

   We all come with baggage but it's that someone who helps in unloading it, who becomes the most significant to us. One of them is certainly our breath. To reiterate the benefits of breath observation. It reduces our stress level, and depression and regulates our body's reaction to stress and fatigue.                                                                                            Keep Meditating

Meditate to Shed Ego

    The first question that comes to our minds is, do I have an ego? Maybe, if we get angry at loved ones, if we feel the need to prove that I am right if there is a feeling of insecurity or a sense of jealousy. Ego hides behind the opinion that appears genuine.  Well, there is no harm in having some ego. The problem arises when that self-image is negative, inaccurate or overly positive. That's when the need to shed ego arises. Once we start shedding our ego, self-realization starts setting in. Which gives immense peace and happiness.  Self-realization can be attained after shedding ego.  meditate to shed ego.                                                                                                                         Keep Meditating

Be A Meditator- Celebrate your awesomeness..just meditate

   Think of a place that is fully decorated with beautiful lights. Stand amidst the illumination. What do you feel?  don't we start feeling happy and joyful? these are external luminosities, that are making you happy. Imagine that each molecule of our body is lit up and sparkling. It might feel like that some sort of celebration is going on within us. Enjoy the awesomeness and celebrate.                                                                                                                               Keep Meditating

Meditate to reinvent yourself

 Life was so beautiful when I met her/him. When I was offered such a good package after getting my prestigious degree or that bundle of joy that played in my lap. Then slowly everything became routine, stale and boring. I didn't know what happened. What went wrong? Nothing. I needed to introspect. I had stopped thinking. I had stopped creating. Everything was like reflection. Whatever came would go back without imbibing.  What can I do? Maybe I can try to start afresh like a tree. Its leaves fall every autumn, new, fresh, soft and shiny leaves appear on the branches. Like the bloom in every spring. Old flowers wither in one season and bloom again in the next season.  Let us meditate to reinvent ourselves.                                                                                                                                                                                Keep Meditating

Be a Meditation- Breath is capable of finding gifts in every challenge

   The girl in the infographic is observing her breath. We always say observe your breath. What is so good about observing breath? Breath awareness has the capacity to find gifts in every challenge. The girl says," All we need to do is embrace our breath fully, trust it and let the magic happen."                                                                                                                  Keep Meditating           

Be A Meditator- playfully too we can observe our breath

   Can there be another way to observe our breath? Little children do it playfully. Like the kids in infographics say, " We put our fingers under our noses to feel the warmth of our out-breath and sometimes we put our hands on our tummies to feel   our bellies rising and falling as we breathe It makes us joyful and calm." Experienced meditators may not agree with this, but for children to become aware of their breath, this can be a good way too.                                                                                                                      Keep meditating

Meditation Right here and now

 There are many of us who want to meditate. But they say, there is no time, there is too much disturbance, and I am not in the right frame of mind to meditate. Is it possible to meditate with so many activities going around us? Maybe yes.  We can find a place for ourselves within the house, where we can spend some time with ourselves. Something like, behind the door, in the sitting room, dining room facing away from everything else. we can meditate out of the house too, in a marketplace, or in the office during the tea or lunch break. It sounds too optimistic, but it is possible. Just close your eyes anywhere, and the surroundings will disappear. Observe your breath. You would find the agitation in your mind and body settling down.            The art of Meditation is to cultivate Meditation right here and now

Be A Meditator- Breath awareness

   Can breath awareness change our moods, thoughts, and experience? Yes, It is scientifically proved that several brain regions are linked to emotions, attention, and body awareness. They can be activated when we pay attention to our breath. Fear and anxiety can be reduced by slowing down our breathing process. To create breath awareness, we should observe our breath regularly.                                                                                                                                  Keep Meditating

Be A Meditator- Meditate to learn to confront your fears

   It is not easy to face our fears and push through them, but it's essential. Each one of us must confront our own fears. Inaction breeds doubt and panic. Action breeds confidence and courage. stop to look fear in the face. Mostly our fears arise from the things we don't confront.  Meditate to learn to confront our fears.                                                                         Keep meditating

Be A Meditator- Our breath is the gardener of our body

 Planting seeds in our garden is like planting thoughts in our minds. Nourish the good ones. To beautify our garden we take care of every plant, flower bed, pot and green grass, In the same way, our breath takes care of every part of our body and soul. Our body is a garden and our breath is its gardener. Observe your breath regularly.                                                                                                                                                                                                                Keep Meditating

Be A Meditator- Meditation is a focussed and ritualised, practice of attention

  One day, while in school. We gathered around our physics sir outside class on a bright sunny day. He had a convex lens in his hand focussing on a white paper. Soon we saw paper stared burning at the focal point of the lens.  Nothing will happen if the lens is just kept on the paper.  Meditation is a focused and ritualistic practice of attention. The ritualistic vibrations of a meditator are like light rays converging at the focal point of the mind and enhancing the power of attention, soon mind starts calming down.  Also making meditation more powerful and effective.                                                                                                                                                                      Keep Meditating

Be A Meditator- Meditation is emptying consciousness of its content

    It is often observed that, whenever we start meditating, endless thoughts cross our minds, like self-criticism, self-obsession, regret, anxious worries about the future, and constant reminder of the past.  We need to empty our minds of such negative thoughts. Meditation offers us an approach, to cultivating a level of concentration in an object such as breath, to a point of being so absorbed in it, that our mind achieves a thoughtless state. ( It takes a lot of time and practice to achieve it). still continue meditating regularly.                                                                                   Keep Meditating

Be A meditator- Meditation connects us to our higher powers.

 Meditation opens our third eye. The third eye is located between the eyebrows. it is one of the spiritual chakras and centre for intuition. As a seat of the intuition, an open third eye chakra taps into the spiritual ability. One can expect greater mental clarity, greater insight, enhanced creativity, and more confidence in our decisions. It can reduce anxiety and depression.                                                                                                                                                             Keep Meditation
