blog love: intuition & meditation

I came across this post on intuition and just felt that I needed to share it.

In it, the writer talks about 5 ways to boost your intuition (read to the end... you'll see what I mean). Here's a sneak peak of what she wrote:

Obviously I like this post, why? Well, you know, why, other than the fact that I'm sharing it? Well because it makes yet another case for meditation. I know, I know... you're sick of me blathering on about meditation already. But I can't help it. In the past 1.5 years of regularly meditating, I have just seen such a drastic shift in my sense of well being that I just want everyone to do it!

Don't get me wrong.

I still find meditation challenging and getting my mind to shut up.. well that's not so easy for me and I don't know when or if I'll ever really accomplish that. But I do get it to tone down. And I call that success!

And the beautiful thing about meditation for me, is that because I do it alone, I don't compare myself to others. I don't compete. I don't fill myself with negative self-talk about how I measure up next to others. It is one of the few times when I manage to bring loving kindness into my practice more fully, which brings more peace and grace into my day.

And that is why I think meditation is so important to me. And potentially to others.

Well that, and the fact that every now and again, when I finish meditation I feel like the answer to the problem I've been struggling with just comes to me. And that's a pretty dang fan-fricken-tastic feeling!
