Meditation Also Gave Me Something Else

By Michaela Scherr

I'm passionate about meditation and its benefits, anyone who knows me can attest to that. It's so much part of my makeup that I really can't imagine living my life without it and I give it a plug whenever an opportunity arises.

Some of the greatest benefits for me have been my ability to tap into 'my well of inner peace' whenever I need to, my connection with, and to, spirit, achievement of greater clarity and balance at the end of each session, and overall wellbeing. Meditation also gave me something else.

The meditation journey for me involved profound inner change as I stepped into enlightenment. Once that door opened for me, well that was it! No turning back...ever - something which no-one ever told me.

Enlightenment, for me, is such a strange thing, and of course is many things to many people. When I stepped into this state of being, I waited for the whiz bang fireworks to begin, hear the blaring trumpets and the voice of God (which I imagined would be kind of booming and earth shattering!). I'm not sure what else I expected but what I experienced was a deep sense of stillness. The door opened, I stepped through the doorway, and how I perceived life changed forever. The clarity with which I saw things in that moment almost blinded me - yet it was so gentle.

This didn't mean to say I ceased doing mundane things such as housework, cooking and cleaning. No - unfortunately that continued and continues to this day and will in the future also. Nope, for me enlightenment meant that I simply knew things and accepted; some possibly call this "Truth".

I believe that Truth or Enlightenment is knowing absolutely everything about all things at the exact same time without pinpointing one solitary thing.

Truth is much like acknowledging anything really, in a passive way. Words are grossly inadequate in describing this sense of being. All I can say is it's simply too HUGE to explain with words but it's something I experience whenever I meditate, or zone out.

I'm not immune to daily issues however I'm not impacted to the same degree as before either. I can say that whilst chaos reigns around me I can easily tap into my well of inner peace. It's helped me through the many trials and tribulations I call life and thank my lucky stars that I started practising meditation when I did.

Of course this practise is open to anyone who's willing to put in the time and practise (it took me five months to really get going). Once you begin this journey you'll notice how much more peaceful, centred and balanced you become.

I've often heard say "I'd love to meditate because of my anxiety and stress levels, however I have absolutely no time..."

If you have next to no time - many don't and sometimes I don't - however you'd really love to begin meditating because you believe there are benefits for doing so, consider this. Three minutes is a passing conversation with a work colleague at the elevator door, three minutes flicking through a magazine at the newsagency or news stand, or three minutes admiring a merchandise display outside your favourite store window. You could do a three minute breath meditation, three minute journal writing, three minute focus on an object, or even take a three minute walk. See! In next to no time at all you could be meditating and accessing your own well of inner peace!

Meditation could bring about profound changes for you too, as well as achieve overall wellbeing, peacefulness, clarity and balance, and connection to spirit and yourself. There are six billion people on this planet so your experience will be different to mine.

If you've never tried it before why not try it sometime soon, you might just get to thoroughly enjoy the benefits it can bring.
