My dad has been doing meditations since I was a young child. I wonder how he started doing them, I’ve never asked him. I’m going to next time we talk. Anyway the first meditation I did with him that I can remember I couldn’t have been more than 10. I remember feeling like I was floating outside my body. Since I was so young this obviously scared the daylights out of me which snapped me right back to reality from where ever I was but I never forgot the feeling. I also never forgot the meditation. When I’d wake up through the years with thoughts racing through my head or I just couldn’t sleep that was always the meditation I’d do. However I wasn’t a faithful meditator for my first 43+ years of life. It is something I’ve more recently added into my morning routine. For me I do it to ground me for my day ahead. To align me with my inner guide. So I can focus on what I am personally trying to achieve myself, inner peace and love. Meditation has so many benefits and below will be an article on those many benefits. I’ve also included above a link on a mini meditation for those who really don’t have much time that you can see it doesn’t have to take much time to do a quick meditation. What’s even nicer is it cost nothing just you and quiet. It is so simple. Just breathe.
