The surest way to cultivate certainty at any time is to find your inner quiet. By accessing our inner quiet on a regular basis, you can tap into that calm and clarity when needed, whether it is just a stressful “normal” day or whether there is a real disaster or crisis. Many people achieve this through meditation. Meditation does not have to mean sitting for hours on end in some uncomfortable cross-legged position, chanting. Meditation is different for everyone. Start by finding a quiet space, free from interruption. Sit comfortably, relax your muscles, focus on your breathing, and observe your thoughts. Start with just a few minutes every day. Make that commitment to yourself to prepare your mind and spirit.
Also, you can join the Meditation Group with Allegra Miller. It meets on Wednesday nights at 7 p.m., at the Naturopathic Community Center.
