11 Surprising Doors that Meditation Opens for You
By Sandy Schroeder
Most of us cover the basics of food, clothes and shelter, but pause when someone asks us what we do for our mind or soul. How do we generate happiness, take control of our mind, or fuel our passion?
DumbLittleMan says that is precisely where meditation comes in. The simple act of stepping away from the commotion of the day to sit quietly and focus on the moment or do a moving meditation with a quiet walk or gentle yoga session can open a lot of doors for you.
Here are some of the things you are missing if you are not meditating.
A fresh dose of mental energy - When you meditate your mind stays fresh and fatigues less, letting you maximize your potential.
A wonderful way to create memories - Meditation helps you feel everything in the moment, both physically and mentally, letting you make one memory after another.
A great way to push the boundaries - When you meditate, it is easier to welcome change as you move out of your comfort zone and expand your home or work growth.
It lets you take control of your mind - You can do a clean sweep of the negatives and focus on positive thoughts.
Sympathy grows into compassion - Meditation will help you turn your thoughts into action. When you feel sympathy for someone you may find yourself reaching out to help them.
It unlocks happiness - You can't think your way to happiness. You just have to feel it. Meditation helps you feel more aware of the present, which is really the key to happiness.
You feel thankful - Meditation teaches you to appreciate now. You become content with who you are and what you have.
Your relationships deepen - When you meditate there is more transparency as you stay true to yourself and others. Friendships often last a lifetime.
You experience a natural buzz - Meditation really can help you be high on life without needing cocktails or other stimulants.
You become mindful of what you eat - As you meditate you will see what, when and how much you eat, which will help you stay healthy and fit.
Sadness and misery recede - When you meditate, you love more and attach less. You see everything from a different vantage point and find it easier to let go of loss or failures.
Put it to the test and try a simple daily meditation. Be prepared to be surprised and pleased.
