Meditation brings us peace of mind, good health and a connection with the divine.
The Benefits of Meditation
Meditation has innumerable benefits. It enables us to quiet the running commentary of our conscious mind. It teaches us how to calm ourselves and find peace. It helps us to learn and grow. Meditation opens us to receptive silence, freeing our minds so we can hear the voice of our inner guidance and open the door to our Higher Selves. In this first of four shows on meditation, we will be visiting the basics. This is a good idea for beginners and old hands alike. Join us as we reap the rewards that come to us with a practice of meditation.
Creating Altars and Sacred Space
This week on Step Into Magic, we will be discussing the benefits of traditional forms of meditation, such as Vapassana and Transcendental. Vapassana is an ancient Buddhist meditation, commonly known as 'Insight Meditation,' giving us an insight into the true nature of reality. It lets us "wake up!" Transcendental meditation involves repeating a benevolent mantra or sound for extended periods of time. Many scientific studies attest to the health benefits of this highly popular form of mediation. It has a rejuvenating and calming impact on the mind and body. Join us as we venture into an exploration of these and other traditional forms of meditation.
The Power of Our Imagination
Visualization meditations are very like active imaginations. They use mental imagery and positive thoughts to create beneficial changes in mind and body. They help us to increase our self-esteem, enliven our creativity and discover deep relaxation. They also engage our vision center, and we find that our psychic abilities begin to respond. Visualization meditations make use of the natural power of our imagination, which is at the source of creation. Join us either online or via telephone as we free our imaginations to create anew in our lives.
Finding Our Way Toward Universal Consciousness
Alice Walker said that meditation took her back to the way she naturally was as a child: "I was in that state of oneness with creation and it was as if I didn't exist except as a part of everything." The meditations that we will be discussing this week give us a deeper sense of self. They can help us to align our chakras, strengthen our intuition and connect us to that same Universal Consciousness. Please join us for an enlightening look into how meditation can transform you life.
