“Understanding meditation is only possible when you practice meditation.”
Why Would You Want To Meditate?
My meditation practice is essential to my well-being. When I don’t practice meditation my ‘awareness of everything’ fades away and I drift further away from Self.
Every time when the question “Why do I meditate?” pops up it always provokes a lot of thoughts in my mind. (see the irony)
I would love to come up with the perfect way to describe meditation to do it justice. The results of meditation have been so widespread through all parts of my life, that it’s hard to put them in words, but ….. I will do my best. 😉
The results of
the gift that’s meditation
have been so widespread
through all parts
of my life
The reasons I commit to a daily meditation practice are:
- To connect with my authenticity
- To be comfortable in my own skin
- To relax my mind
- To allow myself to be
- To protect myself from negative energies
- To become fully present
- To practice acceptance and forgiveness
- To be compassionate and tolerant
- To practice letting go and surrender to what is
- To create awareness of love and fear
- To choose differently (love instead of fear)
- To align my body, mind, and spirit
- To be patient
give you awareness,
presence & connection.
- To be the light, example or a light-worker
- To stay responsible for my own energy
- To observe my behaviour
- To be resilient
- To be in charge of my thoughts and emotions
- To feel confident and courageous
- To attract positivity
- To feel free and connected to my purpose

Meditation keeps me sane.
It’s the most practical
tool I know.
I do know that most people in this day and age are most responsive to the negative, so if this is you I have written my reasons from a different perspective…..
What do I avoid as I meditate daily?
- Feeling like a victim
- Being manipulated by fear
- Feeling overwhelmed by stress, worry or anxiety
- Feeling stuck in life
- Feeling like I lost myself
- Feeling disconnected
- Becoming depressed
- Numbing myself
- Becoming addictive to something
- Feeling angry, irritated and frustrated.
- Complaining a lot
- Feeling troubled and restless
- Feeling stupid
- Feeling insecure and doubtful
- Feeling resentment, regret or any other negative emotion
- Living on a low frequency
- Attracting negativity
I actually don’t want to go on with this list. I’d rather focus my entire being on the positive side of life. And that’s basically what it’s all about.
Meditation isn’t ‘airy fairy’,
that’s just what your Ego
wants you to believe
so you’ll quit
I need to meditate otherwise I’ll become an easy target for negative influences around me. I meditate to stay sane, because when I’m influenced I’ll probably will react from a fearful place, creating conflict within me. I don’t want conflict. There’s enough suffering in the world, and I don’t want to be responsible for my part. I want to be responsible for contributing to the Love-side of the world.
What part do you want to be responsible for?
So I meditate because I don’t want my automatic pilot to decide for me. I’m in charge of my behaviour and I don’t want to be manipulated by ego and fear. I’ve come to realise that without a meditation practice it’s hard to react from an authentic place, and that’s just a no-go for me.
I meditate because I stay in control of my mind. For so many years my chatterbox was in charge, but I ain’t having that no more. I’m driving the car! I’m in control. The mind works for me and not the other way around. I’ve come to terms that ego with its fear is always on the backseat. I can’t make it disappear, but I can turn its volume down, by keeping a daily meditation practice.
Meditation provides me
the space to step back
from my thoughts
& choose differently.
That creates power & peace!
I also like to be aware of the tension in my body. Due to my daily meditation practice any unhealthy and therefor unnecessary tension won’t get a chance to get comfortable somewhere in my body and start any blockages that results in suffering. My willingness to stay in a place where all energies flow freely through my body, is one of the big reasons why I meditate.
I need to keep my practice up to stay comfortable in my own skin. I want to be good and I want to be responsible for sending out only positive energy. I don’t want negative energies to get a hold of me, because when they do I am more reluctant to react from ego, instead of aligning my actions with my authenticity, making me vulnerable to regret and other negative emotions, what are magnets for fear. I decide to choose love, so therefor I need to put the effort in to stay focused. A couple of minutes a day provide me that space.
