what is meditation?
Technically, meditation is a journey from activity to silence.
Physical activity and mental activity. Most of us live in a cyclone of activity that rarely stops. Too much activity and sensory input sends the body into fight or flight. Stress accumulates.
Meditation reverses the negative effects of stress. During meditation the body releases toxins and you experience a deep level of rest.
Rest is how the body naturally heals itself. It’s essential. It’s fundamental to living a whole, healthy, inspired, delightful, divine, creative life.
Today, you will have approximately 50,000 – 70,000 thoughts.
95% of those are the same as you had the day before.
80% are said to be negative.
That’s a lot of mental activity.
Meditation opens up little spaces between your thoughts so you can think more clearly, pause before reacting, minimize feelings of anxiety, be more effective, present and wholeheartedly joyful.
I have a meditation practice in my life, thanks to Julie! Her sweet soul guided me to learn that in silence and stillness, I nurture myself. I am grateful.” – Sylvia
