Sit with your grandparents and ask them about their lives, and you may find that they talk about the things that brought them joy despite being financially sound or not. Thanks to modern day commercialism and perceived obsolesce propagated into our minds the world has become a place of materialism and self-indulgence.
Jesus said “The kingdom of god is within.” Through meditation and prayer we can find balance in our lives by seeking inner peace and tranquility as well as a sense of contentment that meditation can bring. This blessing in disguise can help restore your physical, psychological, or emotional aliments including normalizing your blood pressure, lowered risk of stroke, lower cortisol stress hormones, lowered risk of heart attack, and mood stabilization.
Other benefits of meditation:
Apart from these benefits, you may feel an increased level of energy resulting in higher work productivity. You may also notice decisions in life are easier to make due to better concentration and focus. This is because meditation reduces the noise in the brain areas involved in emotion and decision making. Studies done by MIT in conjunction with U.S. marines have found meditation reduces the risk of the onset of PTSD while in combat as well as less emotional reactivity and increased concentration. So just like physical exercise can train the body to build stamina and strength, meditation can train the mind to stay focus and on task under pressure.
One of the most popular meditation techniques available today is Transcendental Meditation, this non-religious practice involves sitting comfortably for about twenty minutes twice a day, repeating a silent mantra, symbol, or nonverbal sound, to reach a deep state of relaxation.
All you need to do is repeat a word, symbol, or phrase in your mind over and over to relax your body. For best result this exercise should be done in a noise free and quiet location such as in your bedroom first thing in the morning or last thing at night before going to bed.
The bible tells us to abide in Christ. Christian meditation is simply waiting for his presence, just like the child who sits in his mother or father’s lap to be comforted. Find a quiet location and allow your mind to wander. You may want to repeat a phrase like “the Lord is my Shepherd,” “I walk by faith,” “The joy of the Lord is my strength”, “I cast my cares upon the Lord,” “Peace be Still,” or “Come Lord Jesus.” This will help you quiet your mind, tame your emotions, awaken your spirit, and subdue your fleshy nature.
Another technique would be a guided meditation usually done with a CD or Cassette. These are good for beginners who are learning scripture as well as structure during their sessions. They usually begin with a relaxation exercise followed by biblical stories covering various topics including controlling anger, releasing trauma, healing, and attracting love.
