What goes through your mind when you hear the word meditation? Are you one of the people who enjoys meditative expereince and find it easy to focus and quiet your mind? Or are you someone who feels anxious just at the thought of meditation?
Your zodiac sign may have a lot to do with your feelings about meditation. But before we go into that details of that, let’s first define what meditation is and isn’t
What Meditation Isn’t:
Many people have this idea that the only way to meditate is to sit in a lotus position, with your eyes closed, quieting the mind and clearing it of all thoughts. While that is a form of meditation, many people, especially those who are just beginning their meditation practice, are not able to achieve this. Often this causes frustration and a halt to the practice.
Some people also expect a kind of peaceful enlightenment, ability to connect with the subconscious mind and/or for something divine and out of this world to happen during meditation.
What Mediation Is:
In reality, meditation is a form of connecting with the divine that is individual to each person. Mediation can happen while you’re walking your dog, mowing your lawn, connecting with nature, taking a bath/shower, writing in your journal, etc
When thoughts are experienced during meditation, it is important to acknowledge them and let them pass, like clouds in the sky
