In today's fast-paced world, many people are seeking a way to get away from it all and relax. Meditation, which is essentially a method to obtain a level of deep thought and relaxation, is one way to find inner peace and tranquility. Many people think of monks or other spiritual types sitting in crossed-leg position and reaching states of bliss when they think of mediation, but there are many ways to meditate. While there are many ways to reach a meditative state, there really are no right or wrong ways to meditate (this would defeat the purpose), only practice and finding ways that feel right for you. Meditation has many health benefits and has been helpful in improving the quality of life for many. But, don't take our word for it. You now have the chance to learn how to take your own life to a new level through meditation. Meditation can be an enjoyable experience and provide balance to an otherwise hectic life.
Discover today how meditation can transform your life! You can be happier, healthier and have more success in your life by simply creating a meditation habit. In this book I'll show you how quieting your mind and learning to focus can completely change your life! You must have heard people talk about the amazing powers of meditation. You might have met people raving about how meditation transformed "their" life. You might have even read blogs teaching you how to meditate, but when you tried it you found it incredibly frustrating and not peaceful at all. If that sounds like you, then don't worry because you are not alone--most people feel this way. Meditation is not an easy skill to master. It takes years, if not a lifetime to master this skill. The good news is that you don't have to master it in order to enjoy its benefits. If you can develop the habit of meditating daily, even for a few minutes, you can achieve wonderful results in your life. Meditation will improve both your physical and mental health, reduce stress, improve your brain power and teach you how to focus your attention on the task at hand, thereby increasing your productivity. "You should sit in meditation for twenty minutes a day, unless you are too busy. Then you should sit for an hour." Zen Proverb I'm sure not all successful people meditate but you'd be surprised how many of them do some form of meditation. It's an important skill to have for achieving success in life. If you can develop the meditation habit, it will certainly improve your chance of finding success. An increasing number of scientific studies have been carried out on meditation and almost all of them have shown that meditation can be used to alter brain waves and brain chemistry. But if you are still skeptical, just give meditation a try for a few months. If you meditate daily for just a few months, you'll experience the benefits firsthand and lose your skepticism. The only problem is that even those who do believe in the powers of meditation find it hard to turn it into a habit. Meditation can be frustrating if you set unrealistic goals for yourself. Most beginners do it the wrong way. They end up thinking that they just can't control their mind enough to meditate and give up. But this doesn't have to be you! In this book I'll show you how anyone can learn to meditate and how with a little persistence and a systematic approach you too can develop this seemingly hard habit. After that, it's only a matter of time before you start seeing results.You'll continue to reap the benefits as you get better at meditation. Who knows, someday you may even find enlightenment!

Offers a practical guide to the practice of Meditation and Reiki. This book provides the reader with the practical 'know how' and teaches the basics of meditation practice combined with an introduction to Reiki. It is divided into three sections: an introduction to Reiki, an introduction to Meditation practice and includes 25 Reiki Meditations.
This beginner's meditation handbook may be small, but it's mighty. Easy to read, and simple to put into action. In it, you'll learn how to use meditation to say goodbye to chronic stress, because it is NOT your friend. Maybe you already knew that meditation is great for stress reduction, but there are so many options when it comes to meditating. Do you really have the time to wade through a big, scholarly, esoteric manual to figure out how to get the help you need? I didn't think so. Meditation for Beginners narrows it down and offers just enough suggestions so that you can easily decide what works best for YOU. What it is, where and how to do it, ways to enhance your experience... it's all in here. There's even a free meditation audio you can use for your daily practice. I believe the mental and emotional balance you can get when you learn how to meditate is our natural state, how we're meant to be as humans. Finding this balance leads to increased focus and concentration skills, improved productivity, and an upgrade in your overall physical, mental, and emotional health. And FYI - Just because meditation gets serious results doesn't mean it can't be approached with a light heart. Tongue in cheek commentary included at no extra charge.
