Meditation allows us to connect to the present moment and bring more awareness to our feelings. It is a tool that enables us to step away from the busy rush we are constantly in and become more aware of how we feel, speak, act and decide. As a result, it will influence the quality of our lives.
It is an opportunity to slow down and connect more with ourselves and our needs better. This inner work, through meditation, helps us live with more purpose. As our mind enters a calmer state, we also become more aware of our environment and decisions, which ultimately impact the life we want to manifest.
Meditation does not mean that we don´t think about anything but instead, acknowledge whatever thoughts that come through without judgment, to avoid causing more stress and tension to ourselves. The more we do this, the easier it will be to let go of any thoughts that may arise during our practice and start building a calmer and more relaxed state.
Through our breathing, we can also develop a more relaxed state.
