In a modern world that values activity, achievements and results, it is not surprising that more people are turning to meditation. For all the activity of modern society, many still feel a need for silence, inner peace, and a moment of reflection. When we live in the thinking mind, we are usually preoccupied with the past or future. When we spend our energy on the past and future we cover up our natural spontaneity and creativity.
We can learn to silence the mind, and discover we have far more potential than we currently believed. To access this source of inspiration we just need to Be. Meditation helps us to live in the current moment of stillness and being, and thus can help us to unlock our creative potential. For many psychics, meditation is an important daily practise.
Is there anybody who does not, in some way, seek happiness? Meditation takes us to the source of happiness, which is to be found in our own peace of mind.
If we have no peace of mind and are constantly attacked by negative thoughts and doubt, happiness will remain elusive, no matter how successful we are on an outer plane. It is perhaps hard to imagine that happiness can occur from the simple act of being. However, if we can meditate within stillness of mind, we will discover an unexpected source of happiness within our own self. Meditation shows us that happiness is not dependent on outer circumstances, but on our inner attitude.
Meditation helps to reduce stress by teaching us to switch off from the worries that can plague us through the day. Meditation is an opportunity to spend time by ourselves, without feeling at the beck and call of others. Spending 15 minutes in quieting the mind - focusing on the present moment - makes us more relaxed and effective decision makers.
