Meditation Class

I know somebody who heard somebody telling that somebody once said to somebody something.

“Meditation gives you so many benefits. It boosts your health, happiness, self-control, social life, improves your creativity, changes your brain in better”…

The list is huge enough and the idea that you have only positive benefits probably came to you as well…

Was it a good guess?

Well, I want to be honest with my readers…

I always confined the idea of me starting, or simply trying at least once in my life, a meditation session. That idea stayed in my head for a long time, but at the same time the curiosity had grown every single time somebody talked to me about the practice.

Who knows, maybe I was just waiting for the right person in my life to try the meditation…

The day I was finally convinced to try the meditation, I realized how accurate every single person I met during my life was on the benefits you might have practicing it.

Surprisingly, I was even allowed to sit on a comfortable chair and even was provided a stone to rub in my hands (I had thought meditation was something where you sit in a weird body position). I couldn’t believe how amazing it felt after I closed my eyes.

I don’t want to say that I didn’t laugh because that might be a huge lie. It was only when the “meditation master” started to hum the “aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhuuuummmmm” sound.

After he literally led me to the imaginary gate towards the complete relaxation, I freaked out. I started to feel lighter. Every single part of my body was floating in the air. I was literally able to start focusing on my breath and the sounds of other people around me vanished. In that moment, I couldn’t believe what I was experiencing. After a while, my lungs started to expand more than I’m used to…

I freaked out again, folks!

Before I lead you into the next phrase, I want to mention that we all probably experience the meditation in a different way.

I kept rubbing the stone in my hand. Then the amazing experience started to happen.

My mind started to fly at an incredible speed from one memory to another. The craziest thing was that I was able to start with the earliest memory from my life till the present. My mind was a kind of TV remote, allowing me to pause certain memories and live them again as a spectator. I had a full immersion of watching all of my life’s episodes beginning from my very first days of life.

And everything happened in only 20 minutes…

After I opened my eyes, once again, I realized how many times life teaches you amazing things but you’re the one who has to decide if you are up to it or not.

I only regret that I hadn’t tried it before…

Back to that chair… I stood up and left that room full of positive energies. My soul was, for the first time in my life, in peace with my body. I was pleasantly surprised and happy. Meditation became something that I will keep as a future practice to do often.
