Benefits of Meditation

It is time to give the Blog site a trial. I will be continuing to work on it as it doesn’t look quite the way I want.

I have been meditating for several years. I do a variety of types of meditation. Today I got Dr. Joe Dispenza’s Newsletter for August. In that newsletter were a couple of articles on meditation. I found the article on the benefits of meditation very informative & easy to understand.

Though we are all connected, we have different wants & needs. You might not think meditation is for you. There are other things you might find more to your liking. A body scan, progressive muscle relaxation, focused breathing, or visualization might be more along the lines of something with which you are comfortable. If so, you will get the same benefits, it is merely another form of meditation. Check out Dr. Joe’s Newsletter article

What is Your Life’s Purpose?

My life’s purpose is…

To be of service to others.

I have set goals for myself for as long as I can remember. When I achieved one life goal I would start on another. But, purpose, I wasn’t quite sure what that was or if I had one. Wife, mother, grandmother, step-mother, registered nurse, volunteer, board member… were these purposes or just examples of who I was & what I was doing? I figured they were just descriptors of what was important to me.

If I didn’t have a life’s purpose then what the heck was this life all about.

Deepak Chopra tells us that according to Dharma’s Law “there‚Äôs at least one thing you can do better than anyone else on the entire planet.” I have also heard this from other spiritual leaders. So what is that one thing you can do better than anyone else? I think I was meant to help people. I’m not 100% sure of just how I am to go about that, but I am doing my best to help in a variety of ways.

I was an RN for over 30 years. Being a nurse was very rewarding. I loved my job. But, I am now retired & my health won’t allow me to work as an RN any longer. So how do I help people? Being a nurse fulfilled my purpose of helping others.

I looked up what Deepak Chopra had to say on the subject of .Life’s Purpose If we choose to follow Dharma’s Law there are three steps: 1. Decide to seek your higher self 2. Find your unique talent or gift 3. Ask, how can I use my unique talent or gift to help others & be of service to humanity

Regardless of religion or spiritual beliefs, I think we all want to be the best we can possibly be. Prior to retiring it was easy to identify my purpose of helping others. Is my purpose still the same? I’m not sure if I know how to help others if I am not at the bedside or providing direct patient care. But, I might be learning.

I hope that through my Blog I will be of help to those who read it & that it will encourage readers to contact me to find out how I can be of service. My HeartMath & Life Coaching of benefitted some. I have not done much of anything to advertise or promote what I do. I think it is now time.
