why you should start meditating

Our true nature is that of infinite spirit. The feeling of limitation is nothing more than thoughts within the mind. When we can silence the mental noise, we become truly unlimited. {author unknown}

Meditation {and yoga} transformed my life. It made me calmer, more rested + noticeably younger. It helped me find stillness in the midst of a very busy life. My ability to focus, to love, to become + to breathe improved. In meditation, I found a place for my mind to reset, for my heart to heal + for my soul to grow. It is the quiet we are all seeking. It is the place where you will find the best version of yourself. Patient. Full of grace. Grateful. Whole.

Meditation brings the brainwave pattern into an Alpha state that promotes healing. Your mind becomes fresh, clear and empowered. With regular practice:

◊ the intensity of your anxiety decreases ◊ your emotional stability improves ◊ your creativity increases ◊ your experience of joy + gratitude deepens ◊ your own intuition develops + grows ◊ you gain mental + spiritual clarity + peace of mind ◊ problems feel smaller

holistic understanding: meditation sharpens the mind by gaining focus + expands through relaxation, however a sharp mind without expansion causes tension, anger + frustration and an expanded consciousness without sharpness, can lead to lack of action + progress.

∴ the balance of a sharp mind + an expanded consciousness brings perfection


Your physiology undergoes a change + every cell in the body is filled with more prana {energy}. On a physical level, with regular practice, meditation can:

◊ lower blood pressure ◊ reduce anxiety attacks ◊ decrease tension-related pain; such as, tension headaches, insomnia, muscle/joint aches ◊ increase serotonin production that improves mood + behaviour ◊ improve the immune system ◊ increase your energy level

holistic understanding: it cleanses + nourishes you from within + calms you, whenever you feel overwhelmed, unstable, or emotionally shut down; when you meditate, you are in the space of vastness, calmness + joy and this is what you emit into the environment.

∴ as you learn more about yourself, meditation can bring about a true personal transformation.
