What can a daily meditation habit do for you?

If you are looking for one good habit to add to your life, try meditating regularly. You’ll benefit in more ways than you might imagine you can from such a simple practice.

A grounded meditation practice will help you to know who you are and where you’re at. If you’ve been running and running, and expect to continue doing so every day, meanwhile fueling yourself on caffeine, stress, guilt, worry, or some other toxic energy, your body and health will suffer. You will lose your precious energy by treating yourself this way. It can be much harder for you to create what it is you want if you don’t have enough energy or space to do so.

You can try something different today. Or tomorrow, or anytime. There is never a bad time to begin to meditate, and every time you do it helps you to do it again. If you practice grounding as part of your meditation, you have a way to release all of those toxic energies you’ve been taking on.

If you think you’re already too busy and don’t have the time to begin doing this, if you just can’t see adding one more thing to your list, consider this. The time you spend meditating will pay off in big ways, and in parts of your life you may not even imagine it doing so.

Meditation can help you to do the following: gain perspective, calm down, sleep better, let go, hear yourself, value your body, have more energy, heal yourself, think more clearly, create your new creations, manifest, let go of pain, enjoy being in the moment, be able to be present, hear music clearly, have more fun.

It also helps you to: come back to your senses, know yourself, give yourself permission to stop constantly doing, trust yourself, feel your feelings, know your own thoughts, ground yourself, communicate with the earth, become aware of your body, find peace within, relax, know what’s truly important to you. You may not be aware of the vast riches to be found within yourself, until you begin looking for them.

Meditation is not perfect, doesn’t need to be practiced perfectly, and you don’t need to be perfect to practice it. All you need to do is begin. Do it on your own, find a teacher, listen to a cd, create your own practice. There is no one right way to meditate. The trick is just to start.

Making it easier for you – to be you

You can simplify your life, and make it less complicated to be you. When you take care of your own energy system, the rest of life goes more smoothly.

This isn’t to say that everything will always be easy, all of the time, if you do this. But if you know the difference between what is your energy and what isn’t, life gets a whole lot simpler.

Think about the energy and time you’ve spent trying to solve problems you could never solve. Not only can this kind of thing waste your energy, it’s also expensive, invalidating, and can wear you down. Whether you can solve a problem or not has nothing to do with how good you are at problem solving, or how resourceful or smart. It has everything to do with whether it’s even your problem to begin with.

Here’s a simple way to decide whether you can solve a problem or not: ask yourself if you even created it to begin with. If you didn’t, you can’t solve it, no matter how good you are.

If you keep trying and trying to solve problems for others and the world at large, you might be spending buckets of energy in doing so. The more energy you send out there, into things having nothing to do with you or your own life, the less you’ll have available to create solutions for the things you can do something about.

There are things you do have power over, and things you don’t. It’s a good idea to learn the difference, so that you know where to spend your valuable energy in order to get the best return. If you keep giving it away, there’ll be none left for you when you want it.

The areas of your life affected by spending your energy carelessly include: your physical, emotional, and financial health, relationships, career, vocation, creativity, enthusiasm and joy. So, pretty much all of it.

Many people would never waste their money foolishly, yet they don’t see their own energy as being even more valuable than any amount of money. Your energy is priceless, and if you treat it as such, you’ll have plenty to work with. If you’re spending your energy each day trying to hold together those things that really do need to fall apart, you’re wasting your time, and energy.

Some things need to fall apart. We are in a time of Letting Go. That’s one skill many people are practicing now, and it’s a very good one to add to your repertoire. If you hold onto everything tightly as it’s trying to slip away, you’re also holding back the new creations. You’re in resistance, fear, and maybe a bit of unconsciousness. Everything changes, and what is being created now is a whole new world. Rather than resist it or fear it, begin by creating a new world within yourself. Start by becoming aware of your own unique energy. You are truly one of a kind!

Grounding is the miracle

This post was originally published at Psychic Everyday

Grounding is a way of connecting your body to the earth. By using this technique, you create more space within yourself, and open up a myriad of possibilities. Grounding is a technique that continues to grow for you, the more you practice it.

Some of what you can create for yourself includes the following:

1. Protect yourself from unwanted energies. When you consciously ground yourself, you can also release any energies you take on from others, just in the normal course of living your life. This is especially helpful if you happen to be sensitive to energy, if you work with people in a healing capacity, or work with the public a lot.

2. Peace within yourself. Agitation, stress, depression, fatigue, and anxiety do not come from your own true energy. Your own true energy, when in health within you, creates a sense of calm and peace. Grounding can help you have this within you.

3. Have access to your own abilities. When you ground yourself, you are safe enough to have your own natural abilities working for you. Your abilities include your intuition, clairvoyance, telepathy, communication, creativity, and many others.

4. Be certain about your next move. Grounding can help you clear out doubt or confusion about taking a step. Sometimes that doubt is not even yours, it comes through other people and may have nothing to do with you. By releasing that energy, you can have your own natural certainty.

5. Have permission to change. Grounding makes it safer for you to change. Even while going through times of great upheaval and change, grounding can make it easier for you to be safe while doing so.

6. Stop being a pushover. Literally, stand your ground. When you ground, it’s harder to push you in directions you don’t want to go in. It is harder to control you when you have your own grounding.

7. Heal yourself. You can use grounding to release energies that create illness, disease, fatigue. Your own true energy does not create those things. You can let go of the energies that do.

8. Trust yourself. Grounding makes it easier to know who you are, and to trust yourself. You can let go of any invalidation in the way of you having trust for yourself, when you are able to ground.

9. Sleep more soundly. Release the energy of your day before retiring for the night; you will sleep better, and wake more relaxed.

10. Know your own energy. Grounding yourself regularly will help you begin to know the difference between what is truly your energy, and what isn’t. When you have this awareness, it makes it easier for you to discern between which are your problems to solve, and which aren’t.
