Today has been so smooth, gliding into a quick blog to introduce Sophie, who hosts a lovely meditation website; she contacted me recently with a wonderful article about meditation. Perfect for this Saturday Series about the mind, body and spirit connection don’t you think?
I still struggle with making time for meditation, though. So many fun projects, and visits with my family, yet I think it would greatly benefit me to meditate at a dedicated hour. Her website, which I will share this Saturday, is full of resources and debunking some of the myths of meditation. I know I am not the only one who struggles with meditation; in fact, few people I know personally have a daily dedicated practice.
How about you all? What are some of your experiences trying your hand at meditation?
Leave a comment pretty please, or email me using the contact form above if you would like to share privately.
How does meditation connect to the mind, body and spirit connection. I see benefits in all three dimensions of the unified whole person…
The mind, sets itself free to be still a while, and to receive whatever one is supposed to receive from God, or whatever you believe or don’t believe in. This can set a nice tone for the day.
The Body, it’s relaxing and restful. Great way to prepare for a busy day!
And the Spirit, but remember this is not religious, also can say soul interchangeably,, but it connects us to whatever force or within ourselves to fully live our lives.
Not sure if I have blogged this before, but I remember an anecdote about the Dalai Lama who meditated for hours every day, and on busy days with his important schedule, he even meditated more hours.
I need to practice what I preach so am going to really devote some time to meditation and report back in a couple of weeks.
So tune in early Saturday for this special blog. I can’t wait:)
