Meditation isn’t about stopping your thoughts.
Your mind’s job is to think so let’s not mess with that!
Thinking is good , right? You need it for problem solving, analysis, processing, reasoning, etc.
It’s also not so good (at times) —like when you retell damaging stories from the past or worry about the future, both keep you from enjoying your present and both re-create more negative energy in your life.
Stopping the mind is not a realistic or functional goal. Thoughts are going to continue!
But perhaps finding the space between your thoughts, connecting to the greater consciousness, and residing with your Spirit is more attainable.
You actually don’t need to stop your thoughts to achieve this goal.
When you make the space for meditation on a daily basis you create an opportunity to carry that same space into your daily life.
Space from time constraints
Space from drama
Space from worry
Space for clarity
Space to welcome creative flow
Space to breathe
Space for Spirit to expand and… ego to relax.
Why Meditate? Because as sentient beings you crave a space not connected to mental awareness but rather a ‘feeling’ perception.
In order to transcend the mind, you need to expand ‘heart’ consciousness.
Begin by creating a space to be still, meditate, and connect to your sentient nature every day.
With each breathe you can expand the space between your thoughts and connect more deeply to your heart energy.
