The thing about meditation is: you become more and more you” – David Lynch.

There are various types and styles of meditation, some common types are Chakra meditation, Kundalini meditation, Zen meditation, Vipassana meditation, Metta Meditation, Mindfulness Meditation, Buddhist Meditation, Vedic & Yogic Meditation and etc.

The purpose of meditation is to feel happiness. It is to detach yourself from everything that does not serve your mind, bodyand spirit to become emotionally, psychologically and physiologically healthy. It is the cleansing of the soul.  Meditation can bring about focus in your life and you will come to understand that all pain is caused by thoughts. Most of us go about life accumulating a lot of traumatic debris from different situations that these residues linger undetected into many years of our lives that it becomes a part of us. Therefore it is important to shed these traumatic residues to function and live at optimum.

You should sit in meditation for 20 minutes a day, unless you’re too busy, then you should sit for an hour” – Old Zen Saying

 

Meditation is Emotional Detox.  The more often we meditate the lighter our souls become. We become grateful and we engage in the present moment and understand that all that is, all that was and all that will be is only in the present moment. Beautiful relationships take shape with yourself and your loved ones and many content moments start filling up your life. Constant practice of meditation will change your thought patters, emotions and eventually your life.

“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom” – Aristotle
