Benefits of Learning to Meditate

Learning to meditate is learning to calm your mind and control your thoughts. In the course of a normal day, most adults’ minds are like a snow globe that has been shaken. There are a myriad of thoughts just racing around, one on top of the next. Meditation allows us to set the snow globe down so that the thoughts settle down and our minds become as clear as the still water in the globe.

Once we understand that simple act of freeing the mind, meditation can be used for so much more. One of the most productive uses of meditation is to establish a spiritual relationship with God that has the side benefit of blessing our daily activities and keeping us focused on positive outcomes.

Day Creator, the first guided meditation CD in the Successful Living Series, includes training for two types of meditation activities that benefit our minds – universal consciousness at the beginning and ending of each day. In Universal Unity, you will create the spiritual consciousness that will set up the best outcomes for your day. In Relax and Review, you will release tension and negative energies from your day that will promote a healing and peace.

Meditation promotes powerful changes in your life. Learning to meditate and practicing meditation regularly will benefit your work, your health, and your peace of mind.

Why Couples Meditation is Helpful

Serious, committed couples desire to have a deepening connection throughout their lives. They strive for harmony and union in all aspects of their relationship, but none as important as a spiritual connection that will nurture the individuals as well as the union.

Couples often describe this desire as a yearning for closeness, the fulfillment of two hearts that beat as one. Achieving that closeness requires the time and effort to work together with a common purpose: strengthen the bonds of union.

Couples meditation creates the space for two people to utilize couples prayer through spiritual meditation exercises. As you begin to make the most of couples meditation with guided meditation exercises, you will discover a space of calm and peace in your relationship that is renewing, and that deepens with repeated practice. Couples meditation creates a connectedness with yourself, with your partner, and eventually with universal consciousness.

That connectedness translates to deeper intimacy that is reflected in the deeper spiritual well being of the union. The unity of spiritual minds will also reflect in the union of physical minds and bodies. You will experience new intensity to your loving relationship by practicing couples meditation.
