The month of May is meditation month; what a great reminder that we are not our minds, but rather… we are independent beings who are able to take command of our minds. Your mind is your personal bio-computer, and it has the awesome ability to create.
I have learned that if I do not stay alert, my mind is a step ahead of me telling me what to think, say and do. A mind that is conditioned to tell you what to do cannot create anything new, it can only imitate. I remind myself of this daily. I choose to create newness in my life, not have my mind serve up pictures of my past and have me dancing like a marionette to old tunes.
Meditation is a fabulous way to take command of the mind. Meditation requires understanding the mechanics of the mind. The mind chatters incessantly unless you take direct control. The best way to take control is to practice reflecting deeply on one subject; that is all that meditation is about. When other ideas pop in, simply refocus you attention on the subject you have chosen. There is great power in this.
When you spend the time to meditate, you are able to create your future to unfold as you want it to. I encourage you to try it. Take baby steps. Begin with a few minutes and then expand your meditation time.
What might you meditate on that would change your life in ways that would please you?
1. More money.
2. Harmonious relationships.
3. A job promotion.
4. Taking that exotic vacation.
Watch out what you meditate about…. you just may get it!
