Can Meditation Help You To Accept Changes in Life?

by Donna Bloom, Contributor to Meditation on

As we move deeper into Fall, change is in the air.† Children are involved in the school year, some experience a professional change and people come and go into our lives.† Change is everywhere.† How do we embrace change is the question.† Do we resist or welcome new situations in our lives?

Meditation can help one gracefully accept changes on the horizon.† Meditation is all about surrendering and accepting the present moment.† In that state of grace, we get to be the observer of our own life.† We get to rise above and know all the goodness waiting for us.† Meditation connects you to You.† Meditation is a pathway to know who you truly are inside. It allows one to be with oneself in a loving, accepting, compassionate way.† By really understanding ourselves, we learn our own resistance patterns.† Why do we unconsciously put obstacles in our own way? We are then able to discern if there is an underlying lesson or something to heal.

Why do we resist change?† Sometimes itís simply the fear of the unknown.† Ego likes the familiar.† When we let go of resistance and tap into our imagination, we can magically create beyond our expectations.

With regular meditation, we can look forward to change, as meditation fosters a safe environment to explore ourselves.† What new opportunities and people will spirit bring my way?† What can I learn?† Sometimes change is spiritís way to push us out of our comfort zone.

Meditation allows us to tap into our own universal source of love, wisdom and knowledge.† Surrendering is about accepting the present moment as is.† Itís not giving up or giving in.

So how can meditation help, when there is resistance or fear of an impending change?† With patience and practice, meditation can help you detach from the emotional aspects accompanying the situation.† It will help you to look at a situation from a place of non-judgment.††† Meditation allows you to see a situation from a broader perspective.† Perhaps there is a lesson to be learned or a gift to be received?†† To quote Esther and Jerry Hicks, ďitís all about alignment.Ē† When you are in alignment, itís all downstream and itís easy sailing.† When one is in alignment with oneself, there is no fearóonly love and acceptance.† When one is aligned with oneís higher self, there is no resistance. Change can be welcomed as a beautiful sunrise on a clear, crisp morning.

Yes, you can meditate and quiet the mind. It does take some practice and persistence, but the rewards are unlimited. You are worthy of the best possible guidance–the voice of your inner self.† Embrace change with appreciation and gratitude.

For me meditation helps to lower stress or at least know that it is not as important as my mind wants me to think it is.
Meditation helps me so I am not depressed or as anxious as I used to be.

I think meditation can help calm a person down so they can think about things. It might help someone accept changes in their life, but I think it all depends on the change, the person, other factors we can't always forsee.

When we were kids..we would lie down on the grass or blanket and look up to the sky, watching the clouds and sometimes making a picture of them..this led us to quiet thoughts ..I feel that this was a form of meditation..focusing on something and letting go...

Getting in touch with the inner self can be difficult. I found that with practice I could relax my mind and really focus on issues like change. Thanks for the article.
