Why do it?
What purpose does it have?
Let me share part of my journey with you for it may give you a small insight into the power of meditation.
I started my meditative journey some 12 year ago when I was - I realise now, collapsing. Physically, emotionally and mentally. I just did not know it at the time.
I was physically exhausted - running on adrenalin. I was carrying a large responsibility; juggling a newborn, a business and caring for a mentally unwell husband who simply resented me. Everything was twirling around as I cared for everyone the best I could - well everyone except for myself of course! Does this sound familiar in any respect?
At this time I was working on a business collaboration and my partner suggested I speak with Helen. Through her and with her her guidance, I came to see how close to collapse I was and I started to meditate to try to help myself.
I had never occurred to me to meditate. I did not know how to nor what good it would do me and I certainly didn't have 5 minutes in a day to devote to it daily. But I gave it a go. I started with 5 minutes and now 2 hours can float by in a second if I choose to go into a deep meditative state.
I followed a meditation led by Helen and it was profound. It was the start of an amazing inner voyage that I continue to navigate to this day. I learned to protect myself appropriately and followed the protocols as instructed.
I have used all that I have learned through meditation to heal myself energetically, to reach a state of calm and balance when the world was chaotic, to breath again when I had been holding my breath for years.
I heard answers to my questions and was guided when lost. I found courage when I believed I had none and let go of fear, worry and anxiety to claim my life for me. I found warmth, divine peace and calm.
When I was drowning emotionally I meditated so that I could step out of emotion and gain control once again. When my mind was muddled and frenetic, I asked for clarity and it came.
I cannot overstate the health and mental well-being that is derived from meditation and I encourage you to launch you inner voyage. Navigating such a journey to self is a profound delight.
You can move from a state of dis-ease to "ease".
