When people hear of meditation, their minds shift to Buddhism and how they are not part of the religion. However, far from the religious perspective, evidence proves that meditation improves your overall well-being. It doesn’t just clear your mind of negativity. Below are the five essential reasons why you should start meditating today 1. Boosts Memory As you grow up, your mind goes through a growth curve. It develops during childhood, peaks at middle age,…

In this increasingly capitalist and consumerist world, we are undeniably being devoured by the demands of today’s society. Keeping up with the current trends in social media alone consumes not only our time and money but also our thoughts. By trying to capture that Instagrammable photo, we lose focus on things that truly matter in our lives. As such, we need to regain this focus by transferring our energies. Instead of competing with social trends,…

The moment we utter the word ‘meditation’ all kinds of preconceived notions pop into our heads. We know it’s a good idea in general. And yet…some of us aren’t that sure how beneficial it is for us personally. Neuroscience shares evidence for wonderful health benefits such as a decrease in stress, increase in happiness and well-being, and lowering of blood pressure, to name just a few. All good things. But have you ever considered it…

Meditation brings wisdom; lack of meditation leaves ignorance. Know well what leads you forward and what holds you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom.
–Buddha

Music takes us out of the actual and whispers to us dim secrets that startle our wonder as to who we are, and for what, whence, and whereto.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

These two quotes sum up my beliefs about meditation and music. So then, let me ask you a few questions so we can start a dialogue that hopefully will continue long after you read this article.

Are You Ready To Create A Mindset For Long Lasting Change?

How would you like to create a mindset for personal growth and long-lasting change? Would you like to connect with your higher intelligence and use every level of your consciousness so you can effortlessly create positive thoughts that lead to positive choices and actions every day? Are you ready to expand your potential and create a life beyond anything you thought possible?

Welcome to a world I know very well. Where you can effortlessly utilize the power of music and meditation to inspire you to release your limiting beliefs, change your mindsets, habits, and behaviors and encourage you to step into the real power and greatness of who you are.

Students today struggle under an immense amount of stress. According to APA statistics, over 61% of college students who go into counseling suffer from anxiety, and nearly 50% have depression. Meditation has proven to be an effective stress-relief practice that can do wonders for improving mental health. Learning different types of this practice can help literally save students’ lives, as the suicide rates among them have been climbing up over the last decades (National Institute…

I conduct introductory Meditation sessions and have reached out to over 800 people. While many, especially the youth, appreciate the experience, in a workplace of 350, some 35 people turn up if the session is not mandatory. This makes me wonder about the perception Meditation enjoys. Presenting it as an ‘Energetic Detox’–like a gym for your Aura to improve one’s energy levels–takes the weight off an intense, a quick-fix or an alien-like Spiritual practice. Not…

Writing is an incredibly meditative state. You don’t believe it? Let’s discuss a quote by Ernest Hemingway: “There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.” Writing is nothing but a mere expression of the things you carry inside. Meditation helps you discover those things. Meditation is the method, and writing is the expression. But what happens when writing becomes the method and the expression at the same time?…

Our biggest problems are internal rather than external. Stress, anxiety, and fear are the most common enemies of productive work, yet very few of us are consciously aware of this fact. We love to blame others for our mistakes and bad judgments because finding excuses for what’s happening in our backyard is always easier than assuming responsibility. Since 1/3 of our lives are spent at work, many people struggle to live a balanced and healthy life,…

For years, I struggled with my mind. It exhausted me. It would spend endless hours at night — when my body really wanted to sleep — thinking. Endless streams of thought that sometimes made no sense and caused anxiety and depression. Yet oddly, the same “thinking machine” that kept me up at night would falter during the day. I couldn’t concentrate at work. My mind felt like it was overtaken by dense fog. And after…

Does meditation feel like a kind of torture to you? Is the act of sitting still to ‘silence’ your thoughts worse than getting a root canal? If your answer is ‘yes!’ then I want to assure you right now: you’re not the only one. Lots of folks give up meditation before they’ve even really begun for one of 2 reasons: 1) They’re aiming for the wrong goal, and 2) their expectations of ultra-bliss are, let’s say,…
