Blogging challenge part 1 – Day 15
May you be well.
Today I would like to speak more about meditation. This is not intended to be medical advise, this is personal opinion. If you so choose you may research this/these/today’s topic(s); if you choose not to, that is also your choice, the choice is yours.
Yesterday, upon rising I did some breath-work. I sat on the side of my bed; breathed and visualized for a while. I enjoyed this. Do you have experience with visualization? Have you done breath-work before?
Meditation in my opinion, is a broad term that addresses a small part of ancient indigenous practices. This science/practice is often incorrectly attributed to the people of the Indus Valley as it’s progenitors. According to Psychology Today, “Yoga and meditation were introduced to the United States early in the 20th century by Swami Vivekananda and popularized by Paramahansa Yogananda.” Whether this is true in regards to the United States introduction to these sciences/practices I will not say, however in light of meditation’s origins, we would look towards the indigenous beings of the planet.
There is a lot of information that we could go into on this subject, however to keep this conversation rolling, steady, smooth, and laser-scope focused; I would like to acknowledge more importantly that the benefits of meditation are key takeaways.
Meditation has the capacity to bring you to a centered place. If you read my post about integers, and opposites, maybe you will have a more informed idea to what I mean.
Being at this place within myself has helped me tremendously in times of mental clatter also known as “monkey mind” in some circles. With all that is going on, that we hear about on this planet, I think having a place mentally, a mental space of relaxation, is so essential to wellness. This of course is my opinion.
What are your thoughts on meditation?
