Meditation is essential in creating a still, calm, and quiet mind. Your mind is like a computer and even computers need “rebooting”. It takes practice but start slow. Give yourself 5 minutes a day. Then 10. Then 15. Begin with guided meditations so you have something to focus on and then further your practice by sitting in pure silence. 


Thoughts will come and’s ok...we are only your “to-do” list pops up during your meditation watch it slowly drift away...accept it and do not fight it..just slowly allow it to go away and come back to your center. My focus is always my heart. With love and compassione apart of your meditation you can always find your center. I also always begin my meditation with prayers for people..I begin with a few family members that may be sad or going through a rough time, then a few “aquaintances”, and then some people I may not know..Someone I saw at the library or a person walking the dog that looked like they need some healing energy. You will be suprised how amazing you feel when you follow the law of the Universe...”Giving and Receiving”.. 


I always feel like I have stepped off of a cloud after my meditation. Like I have just entered another world. Sometimes it helps to create that “quiet place” and visualize yourself there. What does the air feel like? Are you inland or by the water? Do you have a little home there waiting for you? I look at this place like my sanctuary. I begin here through visualization and then slowly fade into “nothingness”....


But like I mentioned, it takes time and practice...but most of all patience. You will get there. Baby steps......
