What is Meditation and why we should practice it?

Updated: Jan 8, 2023

Meditation or full presence like I like to call it, is a true path to personal growth and knowing who you truly are.


By practicing full presence we learn to better understand our emotions, our thoughts, our body. It is a recognition of who we are and what we are. It is the initiation of a process of consciousness.



Meditating is not just silencing the mind. It is simply observing that there are moments of caos and moments of pause. We are not used to taking that break in the mind and feeling that mental calm.

It is necessary not to be so rigid with ourselves and demanding a perfect meditation in light of what we have been told meditation is... we just need to be steal and quiet and observe without any judgement what is happening in our mind and in our body. Every day will be a different experience , and it is what it is, don't event try to thing if it was a good or bad meditation. In this process it's important for you not to identify yourself with your thoughts, let them come and go.


There is no perfect position for meditation, it can be done standing, sitting or lying down. It's up to you, the important thing is to start practicing disconnecting our mind from constant thinking in the past or future.

Choose a process of being fully present that benefits you.


You can choose to sit or lay down and be conscious of your breathing, you can even count 4 inhale, hold the breath in 4, exhale in 4 and hold the breath again in 4. Whenever you notice that you are in your thoughts again come back to counting your breathings and don't judge you.


You can also choose to practice meditation by being fully present when you're taking a shower, driving, walking, etc... remember the intention here is to stop the mind of being always thinking in what happened in the past or what is going to happen in the future. In that way you are full present the the NOW.


We may be angry or sad, for example, but none of that is fixed or permanent. We can't change how we feel, but we can transform how we choose to feel and react.


I wish you good meditation practices and if you feel join me in one of the monthly online class.
