Benefits of Meditation

This week’s Tools for Inner Peace is #meditation! I’ve provided a few different exercises, however my daily sadhana includes me sitting upright each morning when I wake up for 11 minutes meditating on these 4 questions:
1️⃣. What am I #grateful for? 
2️⃣. Who do I need to #forgive and what do I need to forgive myself for? 
3️⃣. What “I AM” #Affirmations would benefit me today? Then I repeat two or three with my inhale (I am) and exhale (adjective) until I believe them from the inside out. Right now, my affirmations are #iamcalm#iamcentered, + #iamconfident😁
4️⃣. Last but certainly not least, I ask for guidance from source, universe, God, Spirit, insert whatever resonates with you. I try to get as still as possible and VERY present and simply ask, “ God, what do you want me to know today?” Or “What intention would serve me today?” I sit and wait for my inner wisdom to speak and I take that nugget of insight with me. Sometimes I space and my intuition pipes up later in the day when a situation calls for whatever guidance I received earlier.TRUST YOURSELF — you have infinite wisdom within, all you have to do is listen. 👊🏽
These moments allow for me to clear out all the junk from yesterday and start each day with a fresh perspective and a deeper connection to mySelf. 🙏🏽
