February 2010 Meditation Challenge!

Join me in meditating for 10 minutes per day in February and see what happens after 28 days! Some benefits that have been documented in medical journals: joy of doing increases, intuition increases, pleasure of life grows, negativity recedes, stress decreases, awareness increases...

Meditation is ‘mental development.’ Meditation is a means of taming the mind by bringing the entire range of thoughts, feelings and physical sensations into awareness, making the unconscious conscious.

To experience a taste of this luminosity: try sitting quietly in an upright posture. It could be in a chair or on the sofa or cross-legged on the floor. Keep your back straight. Or lie down if you would rather. Let your eyes gently close. And just focus on your breath (the inhale and exhale). If your mind wanders, as it will, bring your attention back to your breath. Be gentle but firm. Meditation means bringing your mind back when you notice it has wandered, it’s not about keeping your mind from wandering in the first place. Just observe your thoughts, don't judge or hold on to anything..

There's no excuse for not doing this every day unless you're not breathing!! You can do it in the airport, at work, home, cafe, train, plane,...

Post your comments below on how it's going for you!

Blessings and Namaste,
Anna :)

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull, Some have weird names , and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.............................................
