My own practice of mediation helped save me. It helped save my husband, as well.
Several years ago, my husband became very sick. It’s a long story, but ultimately he had no choice but to drastically change his life. He’d been living one of self-destruction, and it was taking its toll. The source of the destruction was his thinking. He began to meditate on a regular basis, and that was critical in his personal transformation.
Prior to this, I had begun meditating. I’d done so to really save myself. We were going through a difficult time as a family, and only in meditation did I find my solace. I found myself again.
I know this sounds a little abstract, but in the silence lies the truth of who we are.
In my NDE, I was reconnected with it, and it was loving silence. The only senses I had were the feeling of emotion and vision. The eyes are the windows to the soul. That statement took on a whole new meaning for me after my experience.
In meditation lies ourselves. Do it regularly, and your life will transform.

Thank you for this encouragement! Where do you recommend a busy parent if young children start? I know I need to start but almost don’t know where to begin. Right now I just try to quiet my mind and lie still but I’m not sure this is true meditation or not! Help! 😊❤️Ann
I felt the same way when I started meditating with a three week meditation program by Deepak Chopra and the Chopra Center. It was free, and there happens to be one that starts this Monday….It’s with Oprah Winfrey and Deepak. If you go to the Chopra Center website you can register and get the daily meditations in your inbox. They are about 20 minutes long, and there are lots of other past programs available for download. There is no right or wrong way to meditate. For me I take twenty minutes to sit in a quiet room with my headphones on and either listen to one of Deepak’s mediations or some meditation music of my own. I breathe naturally, but focus my attention on feeling the air move in and out. Behind my eyes I focus on what’s there. Mantras help to keep the mind focused, and I use several that I learned from Deepak. Sometimes I have a deep meditative experience, sometimes not, but always feel good afterward. It’s not a tangible thing, but it gradually works to quiet the voice inside my head and I am better able to “hear” the voice of the universe that is guiding me. It has changed my life and allowed me to deepen my relationship to myself. Happy meditating! Let me know what your experience is! xox
