Mindfulness and Meditation

Meditation has a wonderful outward spiralling effect. Through meditation you will be bringing more peace, awareness, creativity, energy, balance, intelligence and happiness to yourself – and also to your family and friends, and the wider world.

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is about being aware of what is happening from moment to moment, and doing this with a sense of curiosity, kindness and interest. Focusing your attention for several seconds or a few minutes heightens your awareness of yourself and what is happening around you.

What is Mindfulness Meditation?

Meditation is a practice that uses the concept of mindfulness, of being totally aware. Sitting in meditation promotes deeper feelings of peace and wellbeing compared to stopping for several mindfulness moments.

In meditation, the focus may be on the breath, the body, sounds, movement or visual objects. These are ways of providing space in your mind, away from the endless stream of thoughts, worries and plans that are inevitably linked with the past or the future.

However, you often meditate without realising. This happens when you are totally engrossed in something you are doing, like painting, dancing, gardening or listening to music.

When you tap into the stillness of meditation, you start developing a new perspective about yourself and your world.

Thank you so much for an amazing meditation journey. Your outlook and attitude on life is inspiring.

What about my chattering mind?

Mindfulness meditation enables you to recognise when your thoughts are being helpful or if they are keeping you locked in the past or zooming you into the future.

The mind is usually busily thinking and demanding your attention. It is much easier to consciously relax your body. The more you relax your body, the quieter your mind becomes.

A calm mind is not empty of thoughts. On the contrary, the meditative mind notices thoughts but does not judge them. Stress stems from the emotions you attach to your thoughts.

When you meditate and allow your mind to become quiet and still, you often find the answers you have been seeking.

One of the main reasons for meditating is to learn how to tap into your deeper wisdom. When you thinking mind becomes quiet long enough, you can hear what your own heart has to tell you.
