The A R T of M E D I T A T I O N

"Be present in all things and thankful for all things." - Maya Angelou 

The Art of Meditation begins each morning, the moment you open your eyes. Being aware of everything in your sight as you awake. Awakening in the morning with each breath you take and sensing your existence in this universe. That thin ray of sunlight brings warmth to your skin, where you can feel the light kissing your soul. Meditation is when each bare foot touches the floor as you get out of bed, the soles of your feet keeps you grounded with the Earth. In that moment give thanks to the sunlight that awakes your path to a brighter day. 

Meditation is being aware of the water that sprinkles on your bare skin, the warm water that cleanses your mind and soul. In that moment be thankful that you are provided with fresh water everyday. Meditation is walking slowly to your closet. You have the choice to pick what you want to wear. You can wear what makes you feel great. In that moment give thanks to all the wonderful choices that you have everyday. 

Meditation walks with you, as you enter the kitchen. Fill the kettle up with some water. As you place the kettle over the hot stove, be aware the of the whistling sound from the kettle, the sound of the water boiling. Watch the steam out from the kettle, moving freely, as it escapes and disappears into the air. As you pour the hot water into the the cup, go deep into the aromas of the tea. Let the beautiful aromas of the tea bring morning calmness to your mind and soul.

Meditation is when you slowly walk out that door into nature. Silent your mind, let the wind pass through your hair, listen to the leaves as they sing through the air, the birds chirping, the sound of purity that nature carries everyday. Feel the ground beneath you, all the beautiful positive energy rising up to your soul. Stretch you arms and welcome Everything that the Universe has to offer you. This is your present moment, this is your meditation, this is you!

 "Earth's crammed with Heaven...But Only he who sees, takes off his shoes." - Elizabeth Barrett Browning

The Art of meditation begins with you, a you that steps into a dimension of awareness. The awareness is the wisdom you begin to attain, the awareness of your existence and being with the true "self." Mediation is being aware of the true "Self",  the "Oneness" that we carry inside us everyday, that "self " that is often forgotten about, the "self" that NEVER Leaves us!!!!

your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks 

inside, awakens." Carl Jung
