7 Practical Benefits of Meditation

Be Calm Omm ManMeditation isn’t about sitting cross legged in a darkened cave chanting “Ommm”.

It is estimated that every minute spent meditating comes back to you several times over … in a myriad of ways.

Here’s seven ways your investment comes back with the ‘investment’ of just 10 minutes of daily meditation.

#1 : Creating More Time

When we enter the meditative state, time takes on an ethereal quality and stretches. If you embark on a creative task right after meditating, each hour will feel like two or more.

#2 : Being Lucky

Regular meditation reduces our inner chatter, or monkey mind, and as a result we notice events around us that can help us on our path. Perfect serendipities turn up when you are least expecting them.

#3 : Ideas off the Top of Your Head

When we reduce that inner commentary it leaves space for light bulb moments to pop in. Your next idea that will make you millions is just one meditation away.

#4 : Improved Well-being

The health benefits of regular meditation are now well documented. It reduces blood pressure, stress and irritations of the lower bowel. The knock on effect is that along with improved well being comes less time off work, more creativity and increased productivity.

#5 : Finding Your Soul Mate

If you meditate every day for a week, your demeanour and complexion will change. People will ask you if you have had treatment. You become more attractive and the reduced mind chatter allows you to notice people around you who you might love to work with, or to be with.

#6 : Creating a Spiral of Abundance

Money, like thought, is an energy. If we are suffering from lack of money, the very fear that we don’t have enough counterintuitively stops the money energy from arriving. Remove the fear by calming the mind and all the money you need will turn up, just like magic.

#7 : Finding Your Calling

Our thoughts radiate from us and the world that we percieve is reflected back based upon them. When we take time out to meditate, our thoughts go quiet and we allow a more perfect world which is some times beyond our wildest dreams to show up.

Publishing in Tune with the Moon

Managing Time MindfullyLast week while away on what was to be a walking holiday, an unexpected broken leg meant I ended up writing a little more than I planned. The Universe obviously had a different type of ’break’ in mind for me.

I wrote a few months worth of my mindful Just for Today messages and mind mapping the next book in my series on practical mindfulness, which is entitled “Managing Time Mindfully”. I had the light bulb moment that the book ought to be structured in four quarters each with 3 chapters – i.e. mimicking a clock face with its quarters and a year with its seasons.

The new structure will lead me to explore the very nature of time, and our perception of it, in a much more expansive manner than I had previously planned.

While mapping the chapters on Natural Time, a second idea came along that I ought to publish the next book on a New Moon. I realised in my exhuberance to publish the first introductory book in the series, Mindful Timeful Kindful, I had paid no attention to when I published it.

I imagine my delight and surprise when I found it was published on the 13th September – you guessed it, the last New Moon.

This blog is purposely timed for the exact time of October’s New Moon and my publishing plan for the next few ’moonths’ has been ’given’ to me. Each book will get to 1st draft for the New Moon prior to its publication. This of course is nicely self-fulfilling and what happens when we live timefully.
