Meditation was something that was on my mind for a while, but I could just never start doing it then.
In the last year or so, I may have done a couple of them, including a sound healing meditation (which was quite impactful), but it didn’t get implemented as a part of my lifestyle.
I always knew its advantages, I had heard people’s stories of how it had changed them but sometimes things happen according to their own timings and you can never force them.
Then the lock-down happened.
That was the time when things within me changed, my perspective changed on a lot of things, and as things aligned together, it was as if the universe wanted me to start meditating at this time.
On the 30th of March, 2020 was the first day of this streak – and I must say that the first day was groundbreaking in itself.
What I experienced was something I had never thought of.
And then, day after day, different kinds of meditation happened and I explored more and more, and different things ticked off.
I experienced moments in my life which aren’t a part of my conscious thinking, I experienced my life from a different perspective, I started looking at things differently, I visualized different chapters of my life, different settings that changed the behavior in me.
To share in detail, what it does to you, here’s how I see it –
Simply put, it helps you to align your mind and your body and be still.
It allows you to silence your thoughts and just be, not thinking about the next task, not thinking about your worries etc
It allows you to focus on your breathing patterns – which thus helps in relaxation, more energy, more calmness, more peace.
It brings inner peace within you.
It allows you to let go of things that hold you back.
It also helps in visualization of memories, goals, conversations, nature – whatever you want it to be.
There’s a lot that can be done.
Meditation then and now, is a whole different experience for me, such an essential part of life that is again never taught to us in the way we live.
To experience this, you have to take that leap and change your life is how I see it.
And there’s just advantages to it.
Today will be Day 63, to be technically right and I look forward to my meditation time now, more than anything.
