How can meditation help me? How can it improve the results of the Law of Attraction?
At its heart, meditation brings us awareness. By being fully aware of your thoughts, you can direct your life consciously and subconsciously. The Law of Attraction only works if you are consistently feeding your mind with the things you wish to experience. You can only affect your life in a positive way if your aware of what’s going on in your mind.
There was a medieval Jewish scholar named Rashi who said, “Receive with simplicity everything that happens to you.”
Most aspects of our lives are out of our control. You have to deal with life as it happens and keep focused on what you want. What IS in your control are your thoughts. Negative thoughts spawn from negative or uncertain circumstances. And, you can respond to those thoughts with simplicity. You can brush them away more readily by being more aware.
Meditation expands your awareness. Keeping the negative thoughts out is the primary goal to keep you focused on your intended path.
What should we be meditating on?
The best meditation for the beginner is to simply focus on your breath. Close your eyes and take in the room. This is part of a method called mindfulness meditation. There’s also concentrative meditation and others. It’s worth a trip to the library to explore the right practice for you. There are many resources out there: books, guided audio, dvds. Find the right one for you and find more awareness!
