The benefits of meditation
How to get started with meditation
Aligning with our unique soul design is the biggest benefit of all
When we get good at the practice of sitting still, we allow the "monkey mind" to run out like through a faucet. In doing so, the "the still small voice," our higher mind, can be HEARD. Thus, we organically align with ease, flow, downstream abundance, health, wealth & joy.
In recent years, even SCIENCE has found that meditation, when practiced on a regular basis, has many health benefits. Studies have shown that with as little as 10 to 15 minutes of daily meditation, we can improve our physical and emotional health while at the same time strengthening our minds.
Devoting a few minutes out of our day to meditation is time well spent
