Who you are in this world, and how you respond to the experiences that come your way are all influenced by the content of your mind.

See all benefits below, here are a few meditations I like. It’s always great to start with guided meditations as it’s easier to slow down your mind chatter.

Very Cool Heart Fact:

 “The Heart Is a electrical organ, It produces the strongest source of electrical energy in our bodies 40-60 times more the 2nd most powerful source, which is our brain. This electrical energy goes to every single cell in our bodies and it’s what’s measured when your doctor does an EKG when you see the lines go up and down measuring your heart rate. It is strong enough that it goes beyond our skin and creates an electromagnetic field that surrounds us by 360 degrees and measures 3-4 feet around our body! That field changes depending what were feeling emotionally, If were mad it becomes irregular, when we feel emotions that are related with heart, like love and compassion it gets stronger so we are actually broadcasting this. As we learn to be more heart intelligent and realize that we are all connected, that we all have an electrical energy field same as the earth does, we imprint this field and that’s what shows up back to us.”

Howard Martin – The Heart Math Solution

Our electrical energy field and emotions are a very large part of us! Meditation assists us to get in tune with this part of our being.

Guided meditations are a great start, although once you get into breath work  and connecting to the silence that’s all you need.

Who you are in this world, and how you respond to the experiences that come your way are all influenced by the content of your mind.
