I meditate regularly and love the peace it brings and a feeling of being in touch with universal love.

Unfortunately, I'm easily unsettled by loud aggressive people and loud noise so still have lots of learn and much to practise.

I'm a devotee of meditation but although it heals the mind I haven't yet got it to heal the body. My poor eyes have been relentlessly sore and teary for the last 10 years although I've visualised them healthy many times - and I'm definitely not a cry baby!

Wish I could keep that peaceful state going all the time. How many times can you heal slander? And yelling with !!!

Meditation is far from a placebo. I have been involved in mind/body research and practice and have been recommending meditation and mindfulness to my psychotherapy practice clients for almost 4 decades and the results are consistently positive and lasting. Meditation and mindfulness are powerful adjuncts to the healing process. Often it is helpful to have some instruction for meditation. I usually suggest they work with the meditations at this website, http://www.lightunlimitedpublishing.com. The quality and effectiveness are extraordinary. Now they can even be downloaded which makes compliance much easier.

One can argue all day about the effectiveness of meditation or mindfulness or one can try it and see for oneself. I usually recommend the second option.

This is so important. I used to do this twice a day, once in the morning and again before bedtime. It really works. Now that I've gotten addicted to the insane multitasking lifestyle of the Information Age it's harder to keep the discipline.

But THANKS for reminding us!
