It is my belief that everyone should meditate. Now normally I would not say 'should', because that is akin to me imposing my beliefs on you. Not a good idea; however, in this instance, I don't see that as a selfish thing. Meditation is so good for everyone that I truly believe it should be a part of your every-day lifestyle.

Everyone I have spoken with that meditates on a regular basis talks about how well their life is going for them - no matter what circumstances they find themselves in. And in fact, those who meditate on a regular basis simply do not find themselves in any kind of negative circumstances.

Then there are those I speak with that meditate for awhile, then drift away from it and always say, "I need to get back to it." And my answer for them is "When would NOW be a good time to get back to it?" Not so remarkable when I ask them how their lives were going when they were practicing meditation on a regular basis, they all always say their lives were better. Less stress - actually, no stress; less, or no drama; everything just seemed to flow better. Kind of like pulling the oars in and letting themselves just be “in the flow.”

Finally, there are those who are going to, "get around to it one of these days, I know I should do it, but I just can't seem to find the time." Again I say, "When would NOW be a good time to set a time, c'mon just set a time for tomorrow when you can take 10 minutes for your Self." Sometimes they do, more often than not, they will “think about it.” Oh yeah, and those of you who say, "I just don't know if I am doing it right. How do you know if you are doing it right?” My answer to that is, "There is no wrong way to meditate, you cannot not do it right!"

I recently spoke with a new friend on FaceBook and we got around to talking about meditation, (imagine that) and she mentioned how she should get back to it - she used to sit and gaze out the window at the fabulous view she has and write in her journal. She never considered that as meditation; however, I implore you to check out my What is meditation? article to see how I am re-defining meditation. Once she realized that she was in that place of “bliss”, in the moment, everything was just fine, in fact nothing really mattered much but that moment she understood that it was indeed meditative. Do you, like me, ever have those moments - some call it daydreaming, or spacing out? I suggest you look at them as a form of meditation. Anyway, she came to realize that was indeed a meditative state and she is going to get back to it because it is so enjoyable. She also remembered her days seemed somehow a little less hectic when she did that in the mornings.

Therefore, based upon the above story, I suspect if you are reading this, you likely are in a meditative state much more often than you realize, you just haven't put the label on it, yet.
In any case, I will likely add more here at a later date. In the meantime, if you have any thoughts about meditation, please send me a comment, let me know where you are with meditation - are you practicing on a regular basis, are you wanting to get started, but are not sure how, etc.

In the meantime, please read the rest of this series and download and read my free report Our Three Minds. I believe you will find it very helpful to explain why meditation works as well as it does and why meditation is so powerful.

Thank you for being you.
