What Happens When You Meditate?

There is a space between my thoughts.

A place behind and above my conscious thoughts that is wide and expansive.

It is a place where I feel warm energy collecting in my open and upturned palms and my fingertips begin to vibrate with quiet excitement. My heartbeat pulses softly and steadily throughout my body and all becomes quiet and still, like the glassy surface of a lake when the first streaks of daylight peek over the edge of the horizon.

It’s steady.

Peaceful.

Consuming.

And Beautiful.

I don’t always make it there… but with consistent practice, I find my way to this beautiful space with more and more regularity, and I can feel its peace seeping into the moments of my busy days.

I feel greater balance and my heart is more open and joyful for my daily journeys to this sacred space.

Have you ever tried a meditation practice?

What benefits have you experienced?

If you haven’t yet, what’s stopping you from trying?

What have you got to lose?

It’s really simple, I promise…

 

How To Get Started With Your Meditation Practice

One of my favorite websites, mindbodygreen, put together a great little info graphic to help you learn how to meditate, or you can just read on:

Sit comfortably somewhere where you know you won’t be disturbed.

Turn on some of your favorite music or just quietly sit and focus on your breathing.

Don’t worry if your mind doesn’t quiet down right away.  When a thought enters your mind, you can simply refocus your attention onto your breath.

If you like, you can breathe in and out to a count of 4 (or whatever feels comfortable to you,) or choose a word or a phrase to focus on and repeat silently to yourself throughout your meditation.

Try to relax and simply wait for your own sacred space to appear.

You may not get there right away… but with daily practice, I promise, you will find your way there. 🧘🏼‍♀️❤️✌🏻

    I thought you were designing each blog around a song, but I see above each blog is the same song. How about this thought: design each blog around one of your songs or write a song to help emphasize what you want to blog about. One supports(advertises) the other.

    1. Hey Frank! Good to hear from you again. The songs on the site are in a site-wide player. That way you can click around to multiple pages of the site without interrupting the listening experience. You’ve got a good suggestion with blogging around songs and such… but there IS more to me than music. I’ve started blogging as a means of sharing my thoughts outside of my music. I’d love to connect with likeminded people around these other ideas. 🙂
