5 Good Reasons to Start Your Day with Morning Meditation

Meditation is one of the most delightful ways to start our mornings with. Don’t get me wrong, doing this activity anytime during the day can be beneficial for both our mental and physical health, but mornings have a special vibe to them! Breathing in, breathing out, and letting ourselves go with the flow is just easier in the mornings, right after our good night’s sleep.

There are a lot of people who include meditation in their morning routines, which I personally find it smart to do. You don’t really need more than five to ten minutes to meditate if you really focus on your thinking. Get rid of distractions and just be yourself, alone, with your thoughts.

So why mornings? Whenever we wake up, we feel powerful and determined to begin our day, don’t we? Pressing stop on that ‘strength’ and letting our feelings flow will release the pressure of ‘having to go through the day.’ If we meditate in the morning and truly understand what is that we desire from ourselves during the day, the pressure of ‘being good enough’ will go away. We are going to be thankful for the opportunity to live, and no more. Isn’t this a great way to begin our day? Take a look at the following reasons to start your day meditating and give it a try, will you?

  1. No distractions

Mornings are known for their quietness and stillness. When we wake up, the world around us seems to be so static, so motionless. It’s like we stopped time, and we are alone on our little planet. That is why meditation during this time of the day is so beneficial.

Our minds and bodies are going to respond to the stillness, and together they will create the perfect environment for our meditation. That happens neither at lunch nor in the evening. During the day, everything moves so quickly, most of the times leaving no room for us to focus on our own thoughts.

  1. Choose spiritual over material

So many people believe that drinking a cup of coffee in the morning and having a good breakfast will keep them going through the day. While it might be true for some, my experience has taught me the opposite. If I do not think about myself in the morning, when will I do it? Coffee, food, TV shows… they are all just material things which lack relevance if our minds are not doing well.

For me, developing spiritually little by little every day brings me lots of benefits, while “developing materialistically" would probably keep me at the same spiritual level. As a writer at writing service, I can’t stop developing spiritually – I need to stay in “spiritual" shape for my clients, who need me all the time. Interacting with people every second of the day can be overwhelming, that is why I need to concentrate on myself in the morning. Help yourself so you can help others, right?

  1. Meditation means better focus

As you already know, you will focus as much as possible on your thoughts during the sessions. This creates a very good habit for the future. While the hustle and bustle of the city doesn’t seem to be affecting us, it subconsciously makes us lose concentration and focus on our actions.

If you want to stay focused throughout your day, meditation is your best friend. Practicing it will develop new skills for you, and will teach you many interesting life coping techniques. Just take a deep breath, and explore your mind.

  1. No more useless stress

I am pretty sure I am not the only one in here stressing over life. We have so many things in our mind all the time that sometimes, the glass just becomes full. That is when we know we need to take a break, or quit our job, or just enjoy endless relaxation. Unfortunately, this is not how life works. While some of you are able to leave your offices whenever you want to, for us the best things don’t look so bright. That is why we need to find a balance in our lives in order to fully enjoy it.

Through meditating I found the balance I needed in my life, and I am very happy I chose it. Meditating each morning made me understand that stressing over different matters won’t change anything. Taking a deep breath and finding solutions will. Meditation clears your mind and opens new perspectives. It clarifies the meaning of life and defines problems as easily solvable. Don’t even get me started on how I have no more headaches thanks to this awesome practice!

  1. Increasing awareness

I could spend days talking on this subject. There are just so many things out there to discover, and few humans choose to search for them. I know, it’s easier to stay in our comfort zones and relax, but how are we evolving if we are not seeking new answers? Self-awareness increases confidence, motivation, and understanding of the world itself. This makes us aware of all the decisions we take, therefore raising satisfaction.

More awareness means more consciousness about your life, and more consciousness means better decisions!

Wrapping-Up

Try to incorporate meditation into your morning routine. Wake up 10 minutes earlier than usual and start working on your spirituality. Drink a good coffee after, and think about the reasons you are doing this – aren’t they clearer now? Keeping both mentally and physically healthy is going to bring numerous advantages for you. So enjoy this wonderful and unique experience, and lose the overwhelming feeling of stress!

7 Wise Spiritual Lessons from Children

Children have a very particular way to see the world. As they haven’t been through much yet, they can see it in a way that we miss when we become adults. And you probably have found yourself wondering about where the person that you were has gone.

It is true that feeling nostalgic about it isn’t productive. You won’t be a child again, no matter how hard you try it, avoiding responsibilities, for example. But there is nothing stopping you from going back to that time in your mind and waking up your inner child.

And the best thing about it is that you will be happily surprised with how it can help you to be happier and successful in your life, as you will discover in this post. And to achieve it, all you have to do is to keep an open mind and start listening to all those wise spiritual lessons that you might get from a child without even asking for it.

# 1 – Live the moment

Children have no concern about the future. Their minds are always here and now. They don’t worry about what they are going to be when they grow up until an adult asks them about it. And they get heartbroken when you say that they have to wait to do something another day or time, as tomorrow has no meaning for them.

# 2 – Embrace friendship

Children love their friends. All their friends are invited to play and regarded with the same level of respect and attention. Of course, when they get a bit older, they start to favorites. But they don’t have acquaintances. They deal with friendship intensely, considering their friends as part of their family.

# 3 – Enjoy nature

If you want to see a child happy, just take them to enjoy nature. They understand how crucial the environment is for them, and you will see very sad faces looking out the window on rainy or cold days. Children are very keen on their pets, but they will also love ladybirds, ants, and butterflies. They spend as much time as possible playing outside and embracing all that nature has to offer.

# 4 – Always have fun

If they have toys, great. If they don’t, great too. Children know how to have fun in any circumstances, with or without the resources, alone or in a group. They learn by playing, and the “no pain, no gain" concept is something that they can’t even begin to understand. They enjoy what they are doing, and they are always up for a good time.

# 5 – Treasure your imagination

When we become adults, we lose our ability to dream freely. We get caught with bills, jobs, and relationships, and our imagination just fades away. Children, on the other hand, have the most imaginative mind. They will create new worlds and friends just for the fun of it. They can see the world with bright ideas, and they will always have hope.

# 6 – Speak your mind

Children will say whatever they want. They don’t have any boundaries and don’t believe that hiding what you feel is the solution for anything. They will laugh out loud if they are happy, and they will cry their lungs out if they are sad. They will never fake or pretend that they like you if they don’t. They will ask when they are in doubt, and they won’t go to bed with an unsolved situation disturbing them.

# 7 – Make art

Every child makes art. It can be drawing, coloring, painting, dancing, sculpturing, handcrafting, playing an instrument. But, at least, one form of art will be among their favorite things to do – and usually more than one.

For some innate reason, they know that making art is good for them, that it helps them to improve themselves as a person and as a learner. And they won’t care if their work is good or not, only that they can enjoy it.

The bottom line

So here are seven wise spiritual lessons that you can learn from a child. If you bring them to your adult life, you will see that you should:

  • Appreciate the things that you have now, material and spiritual ones;
  • Give to the present the same importance that you give to the future and the past;
  • Spend as much time with nature as you can;
  • Believe that you can have fun while doing serious things;
  • Let your imagination free, even if it makes you sound naive;
  • Tell people that you love them, and not lie to them when you don’t;
  • Make some form of art despite a lack of talent.

If you only followed these rules, you will make your life much happier, and your happiness will be spread around people nearby you.

So instead of thinking about all the things that you should be teaching your children, maybe it is time for you to learn from them as well. You won’t regret.

Reflective Reality Reflections of the Inner Universe

Reflective Reality: Reflections of the Inner Universe

Reflective Reality: Reflections of the Inner Universe

There is a universe that resides inside of me, a sort if reflective reality, for the universe is a most radical reflection of me. For I am ever expanding like the sea, rooted and grounded like that an oak tree, all while transcendently resting in the ineffable infinity that is our galaxy.

Am I here, no am I really here? Simultaneously sensing that the beginning and the very end rests in this times sphere. Feeling as though my physical existence has vanished, most swiftly disappeared. Filled with a felicitous kind of fear, internally inquiring with my inner self whether I will make it out of here.

Senses overwhelmed as I; hear, smell, and see things ever so clear. For the universe, has never felt ever so near. As I am enveloped in the universe’s ever expanding love, I am emphatically embraced with a most heavenly hug. Interwoven with the galaxy, stars, and the moon above my spirit is overflowing with a bounty of the purest form of love.

For your divine destiny can be found in written in the celestial skies above, paved with eternal love. And so, the next time you find your minds eye gazing up at the sky, know that the universe is looking back at you, resting in the soul of you, you are looking back at the reflection that is you.

This connection to the constellations makes one realize that endless possibilities reside within you, an eternity of endless treasures shall forever await you.

Reflections of the Soul of me, Serenity

Rumi Quote

Reflections of the Soul of me, Serenity

Our ever-expanding universe has undoubtedly blessed me with the oh so glorious gift of pouring out the oh so positively peaceful poetry that has indelibly been written on each and every vessel of my beating heart. As I honor the universe, assuring to live out my life’s purpose too; uplift, inspire, and empower others by gracing them with my most rhythmic rhapsodies, allows for each soul to stop for a moment in time. For there is profound power in being able to consciously connect, caressing another’s unconscious mind. I must admit, that through the wonderment of words, it invokes in me a feeling that is ineffably one of a kind.

In an effort to provide your dearly beloved soul a glimpse into the reflections of my soul, In the words of Henry David Thoreau, this is my goal " to live deeply and suck out the marrow of life" for this is what ignites a fire in my spirit, making me feel wondrously whole. The profoundly perfect stream of words spoken by Mr. Thoreau resonated with the effervescent essence that is me, so remarkably raptured the very soul of me wholeheartedly. It is as if for a moment in time, I was Mr. Thoreau and he was me. For living life deeply is what gives my life purpose. It so promisingly propels me towards my most divine destiny.

I am enamored and inspired by every astoundingly amazing aspect of this belovedly blessed life. From marveling in awe at the beautiful bounty of nature, keenly listening to the whispers of wise willow trees to gazing at the gorgeous glare of ever so brightly shinning stars. Progressively Pontificating our very existence here on earth, forever inquisitive about why we are the way that we are. Finding solace in those solitary moments when I comforted in clarity by the ever-translucent fact that we are most radical reflections of our most glorious galaxy. Realizing that although our universe appears to be ever reaching, ever expanding, out of reach, and ever so far, we are cosmically connected and thus this kismet connection has an impact on the very reason that we are who we are.

In soaking in the vivaciously vibratory words enlisted above, you may sense that my writings are inspired by the very depths of life, inspired not only by that which our naked eye sees but also those intangibles that can’t be seen, but only felt, with the intention to find out what it means for you and me. It is my hearts hope that my spiritually enlightened writings on; life, depth of emotions, the power of love, and the interconnectedness of it all shall stimulate and invigorate the; mind, body, and soul like that of the most gracefully refreshing rainfall. Overall, I can only wish that it serves to inspire others to become increasingly more in tune with the love and light that resides in us all, propelling others to respond to every call that excites are wonder-filled spirits once and for all.

All in all, working towards the most marvelously miraculous mission for positively peaceful inspirations to behold each and every soul with overwhelming elation, so graciously taking flight, laying a most felicitous foundation across our nation. Transcending our universe’s collective consciousness straight towards the constellations. Cradling each heart in the purest form of serenity, and completely awe-inspiring adoration.

Sincerely,

Serenity
