Quieting the mind can be frustrating for beginners who are starting their mindfulness or meditation practices. People can have over 50,000 thoughts per day, so slowing down or stopping these thoughts can be very difficult, particularly for those without training. Research has shown that consistent mindfulness practice results in slowing down and ultimately controlling thoughts more easily.
The benefit in controlling your thoughts through mindfulness practice is that it enables you to control your emotions more easily. A stray thought that results in an anxious emotional response can lower your frequency and can have a lasting impact. The thought removes you from the present moment and pulls you either into the past or the future.
Through consistent practice you become more easily able to slow down thoughts, objectively examine them, and release them. Your brain can be trained to identify errant thoughts. Even when you...
Body scanning, along with rhythmic breathing, can be a great way of introducing mindfulness into your busy schedule. Oftentimes people cite time as a reason why they don't participate in consistent self-care. The stress and responsibility of everyday life can overshadow the small things we can do to better manage our lives. Taking a few minutes daily to participate in your preferred mindfulness practice can have a lasting impact on your emotional and physical well-being.
Body scanning involves either lying down or sitting in a comfortable position, focusing on your breath and setting your intention on sections of your body.

You don't need to be special to be spiritual. thinking that only a few randomly selected people were born gifted and the rest of humanity should flock to their feet asking for advice is outdated.
It's designed to create divide and separation with only those few people standing on a pedestal really benefiting from it. don't worry, I understand why you may be thinking this way. it can be easy to fall into being conditioned by someone else. having them tell you what to do rather than looking within. also I do believe that you're special. we are all special and i'm not telling you that there isn't any good spiritual leaders out there.
I have several that I learn from. however, any good leader will tell you that they aren't any more special than you or me. it's about connecting to your true self.
You see more and more everyday ordinary people without a platform, without a following, finding their inner self and connecting to god, the divine, infinite intelligence, the same exact source...
Spiritual people understand that transformation happens from within. Most people are waiting for their external circumstances to change or align with what they feel must occur in their life first to change their undesired mindset or lifestyle.
The focus on these external circumstances can hinder them from moving forward. their view comes through a lens that is being filtered through their outer environment.
They get caught in the idea that these circumstances must change before they can. But the world is changing. More and more people are waking up to their true nature and connecting spiritually to the universe, the cosmos, god, infinite intelligence.
They are discovering the power to transform us from within. These spiritually in-tune people understand that internal transformation will not only change their own lives but will have a bigger impact on people around them.
