Meditation

One of the ingredients that I believe is essential to beauty is inner peace.  Meditation is an avenue to that inner peace.  We all meditate every day, it is simply rolling thoughts over and over again in our minds. I find that many of us meditate on our downfalls and problems which does nothing to help us with inner peace.  Try an exercise where you catch yourself during the day in your thoughts, become more aware of where your thoughts are and how much you roll them over and over again. For meditation to help bring peace into your thought stream, you must begin to assert positive and healing thoughts towards yourself and situations.  Whether you are sitting cross legged on the floor with calming music in the privacy of your bedroom or riding the subway into Manhattan, you can meditate and connect with light and peace.  Deep, slow  rhythmic breathing and the closing of your eyes eases the mind. Taking a moment to connect and be present in a gentle way with the universe.  If you want to pray you can do that. Open your heart, rest in moments of stillness, let the mind settle on the heart. Breathe out thoughts, desires and  emotions. Let your thoughts just pass by like clouds in the sky. There isn't a single moment in our lives when God disapears. Send out your intentions, feel the roots of your tree planted deeply beneath you. Feel peace above you, peace beneath you, peace around you. This peace within you, I believe, will align all the elements of beauty, creativity and contentment you desire. xoxo Keep It Glam -Taj

Such a great great great post. I tired meditating a few years back not know much about it and I fell asleep every time. You explained it so well that I would love to try it again.
p.s. Love the photo of the girl praying in thigh highs.
Cheers,

Meditation (and inner peace) is key to happiness, in my opinion. I mean, you don't have to sit in the lotus position for 30 minutes, doing nothing. I meditate while I drive, shower, before I go to sleep, etc. It definitely helps in dealing with the stresses of life.

I always love when someone strays away from the normal posts of a blog to post about something like this. I am actually in to meditation and do my yoga twice a week but its nice to read about it still. I find if people are starting out in it as well the easy thing for them to do is if they start having negative thoughts about something or someone, send them light and love. Great pictures too - I was transported for a moment in time :)
