Meditation is a topic that many people don’t fully understand and that has a lot of mixed views surrounding it.
Some people view meditation as an almost ‘occult’ practice focused on achieving a state above that of normal people and transcending onto another ‘plane’ of existence. Other people see it as being a great therapeutic technique for healing, and others still don’t give it much thought and write it off as a waste of time.
Meditation certainly isn’t a waste of time, and nor is it necessarily spiritual or magical. It is very different things to different people. There is not really one form of meditation but rather several and each has different goals and purposes.
What meditation has in common across the board though, is that it is extremely useful, very powerful, and one of the best tools for clearing your mind and for feeling better about yourself.
This is a fantastic way to approach any problem with a fresh mind, and without the usual hang-ups, biases, and issues that prevent us from performing our best, living in the moment, or truly expressing ourselves.
Meditation can be used to help you achieve a kind of “mind reset” both in the short term, and in the long term.
