The Meditation Challenge

 My meetup group decided to accept the challenge to meditate every day, for at last 5 minutes, until the new moon. I challenge my reader to the same.

Why meditate?

  • Meditation lowers blood pressure, improve mood, helps with sleep, lowers stress levels, and provides many health benefits.
  • Meditation helps you learn to focus the mind and will, which are key in all spell work and visualization techniques.
  • Meditation teaches us to take a moment for ourselves, to ground and center, to release negativity, and to embrace peace.

- Pick a method of meditation to do every day. This can be the ‘empty mind’ meditation, or something like walking meditation, Tai Chi, Yoga, or taking the time to chant for 5 minutes. pick one method, however.

- Keep track with a daily journal.Write down thoughts, or if you achieved ‘empty mind’, add how you felt before and after, and if you managed longer than 5 minutes.

- Pick a time for your meditation. I’m going to do each morning, to set my day off on the right foot.

  1. i meditated for 6 hours once without a break and it was great. hope you reply

    • Without a pee break? I don’t think I could ever do 6 hrs straight. I’ve lost sense of time before, though.

      • yeah for 6 hours once and it felt like 5 minutes.. people can go to sleep for 12 hours without pee break.. so same thing …
        well the whole point is that u will lose sense a lot …

      • yeah 6 hours was the peak of my meditation but i couldn’t do it then for a few years after that . i did same in chess and reached a peak in that too and following day was useless at it.. so i think there is comparison when you reache peaks at anything
