Amazon CodeWhen you feel like things in your life are spiraling out of control, meditation can be an extremely healthy and effective tool to utilize. Many people experience pain because they are trying to control a specific person or situation. When you surrender control you invite more positive energy into your life. If you are healing a broken heart, keeping a positive mindset is crucial in making yourself a whole person again. This is also a great time to distance yourself from any toxic relationships you may currently have in your life. Although we may consider someone a good friend, if they are constantly complaining and bringing in negative energy, you need to steer clear of them.

When we go through a break up it is almost guaranteed we are going to find ourselves letting sad thoughts creep into our minds. Whether you keep dwelling on the good times you two had together or can’t stop feeling betrayed, it is essential that you are able to recognize when it is happening and actively change your thoughts. A good way to do this is through mantras. Your mantra can be “He was not good for me and I need to let go” or something like “I deserve love and affection and I must give it to myself first”. As long as it is positive and allows you to actively stop the negative thinking and ruminating.

The process of healing wounds is not simple. But it is necessary. Clearing your head, heart and soul through mediation will allow you to surrender yourself to the universe and its life lessons. If you have never tried mediation before, it may seem a bit weird at first. It’s okay if it takes some getting used to, but don’t give up.

Some tips for beginner meditation:

  1. Make sure all electronics are turned off.
  2. Close your eyes and think of a calm, beautiful place like a beach.
  3. Breathe deeply and concentrate on each breath as you inhale and exhale.
  4. If thoughts of work or responsibilities drift into your mind, don’t fight them—rather let them drift on and out.
