Meditation Made Easy!!

Hi,

This weeks post is simply about Meditation!! According to Merriam-Webster online dictionary, meditation is the engagement in mental exercise for the purpose of reaching a heightened level of spiritual awareness; or to focus one’s thoughts on, reflect on, or ponder over. Often we find ourselves overwhelmed with daily and weekly tasks. However, meditation helps to relax us and  also has many health benefits, such as lowering blood pressure.

Here is a very simple meditation exercise:

1. Sit or lie in a comfortable position.

2. Close your eyes.

3. Breath naturally.

4. If your mind wanders, simply return back to your focus thought (I have chosen the scripture posted below as mine).

Note: Maintain this meditation practice for a few minutes to start, then gradually try it for longer periods.

Psalms 62:5-8

5 Yes, my soul, find rest in God;
my hope comes from him.
6 Truly he is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
7 My salvation and my honor depend on God[a];
he is my mighty rock, my refuge.
8 Trust in him at all times, you people;
pour out your hearts to him,
for God is our refuge.

Love Always,

Rachael Woods
