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.
