The magazine Cooking Light describes meditation as going to the gym for your brain, and it truly is. However, mediation may or not may come easily to achieve for a variety of reasons, but practice makes the master.
There are several methods out there to choose from, and it’s OK to try as many as we can until we find one or two, or even four that can assist with this workout for our mind. From personal experience, meditation has helped me to understand that the mind does not stop processing thoughts, but that we, the thinkers, can manage the way that those thoughts influence our lives.
Below are a few sites/apps that provide awesome meditation tools:
Buddhify is an excellent app. It cost $4.99 but it’s worth the cost. It uses a multicolored wheel which provides several options for meditation depending on what you are doing at the moment (i.e. at work, waking up, can’t sleep, difficult emotions, etc.).
Sahaja Yoga Meditation offers 10 free meditation classes, based on the Kundalini Yoga taught by Shri Mataji. This method of meditation feels very spiritual and helps to focus on our internal connection with Source. The classes are based on videos, physical practices, and intense mental focus.
Deepak and Oprah often offer a 21-Day Meditation Experience free of charge. This program(s) can truly shift our path and rejuvenate our personal/professional experiences. I recommend signing up to their site to be alerted as to when the next free meditation experience will be available.
If you are looking for an in-person meditation class, The Center for Pranic Healing based on Master Choa Kok Sui techniques offers several free classes in Dade and Broward. It’s very loving, practical, and it teaches much about the intentions of meditation. To view their calendar, visit this site: http://www.pranichealingevents.org/events.html
