Best Tool Ever is Meditation
The practice of silencing and calming the mind, meditation, is the one tool that any spiritual seeker needs to practice.
Why? For we have active minds, and yet this constant thinking may very well block out our intuition and that still small voice that is our best guide in life.
Meditation has many benefits as shown in science-based studies and does many wonderful things besides calming the chatter of the mind,
Our world has too much stimulus and without the ability to quiet the chatter of your mind, you may find it very hard to hear that still small voice of your Higher Self or the guidance of your Spiritual Team. It is in the inner planes that you can talk to All That IS, God, Allah, Creator, Source, that which you may refer to as your highest guide.
A disciplined mind will assist you in discounting negative chatter that can disrupt your life. It also helps to make the mind much like a still pond of which you can see, hear, know anything that you reflect upon.

Guided meditations help you to learn to navigate the inner planes of your being by beginning with speaking, creating a start of a story like taking you on a path and then there is silence to follow to allow for your own inner guidance to complete the story. It is when imagination takes over and gives some very needed imagery even advice or something which helps the one meditating. Shaman call this a “journey”. For you are led through the inner landscapes as a journey. Once you get the practice down, you can create your own and begin to create more consciously.
Guided meditations provides for thinking to stop and the imagination to grow. This might be the best starting point for many at first or for gaining certain information.
‘Quieting the Mind’ is required for advancing beyond certain points of spiritual evolution. It takes time to get to the point of silence, just like learning anything. To be able to stop your thoughts is a powerful thing.
Step Away from Media
Step away! Even for short periods will give you a new sense of peace.
Much of media these days is focused on things that cause depression, anger, frustration, helplessness, coveting, shaming, character assassination and so many non-life affirming stories. Then people wonder why they are so unhappy.
News is better digested in the mornings as late night news which tend to focus on what is wrong, bad and ugly, will fester in our mind during sleep.
Even our smart phones can take so much attention away from our life that we miss the sweet things.
What you watch and listen to stays with you throughout your day, weeks and months. The quality of what you watch will affect your attitude and life.
What you “fill” your time with has consequences. Use these resources wisely.
Look at your dreams and see how much content from media spills in to your sleep.
Not watching TV, listening to radio, or being on the computer all the time help to clear you mind.
Life is grand when we spend time with people face to face, laughing, eating, sharing stories.
Our phones are back-up, but never replacement for real time spent with who matters in our life. A text never replaces a face to face conversation.
A good media diet is one where you just watch your favorites, and not channeling surfing, or watching everything.
Going to see live sports is more exciting and when shared with friends and family it becomes great memories.
Simplify! Focus on what you would like and maintain the course!
You are Unique
There is only one you, even if you have a twin, they are also unique and have differences from you.
Your life is also unique and it moves according to your choices. If you do not like something, choose again.
It is never about changing others, it is about making changes with your own self.
As you realize what matters to you, you can monitor thoughts, change diets, learn new skills, make more friends, change jobs, locations and so many other life choices in order to fulfill our soul yearnings.
No one can grow for you. No one can give you anything more …. for you already have everything within.
Sometimes we need help or need to move towards solutions and that can be provided through friends, family and other sources of assistance and information.
The journey is a solo one. It is within the body/mind/soul amalgam.
Our Core Star holds our unique energy signature and our energy fields process experiences, information and guidance through us.
Our Higher Self holds this blueprint of who we are and all of who we might have been and will be. Blueprints are guidelines and can also be changed.
Enjoy your own journey and do what is best for you. Learn more when you get stumped or stalled. yet sometimes being still is the answer.
You are unique!
