Learn How Christian Meditation Can
Help You Relieve Stress
Wash Away the Weights of the Word
As you already know, many people suffer from stress, burn-out, and busyness. In fact, most people are too busy to live. The quality of our life seems to diminish with each generation. We have more stuff but less time to enjoy the things that really matter.
Due to high stress levels, many people suffer from chronic illness like diabetes, hypertension, and even cancer. Studies have shown that 90% of all illness is due to or heighten by stress. Because of this, many health professionals are now prescribing meditation to reduces stress and its effects on our health, and the science shows it works.
Through the art of Christian Meditation, we surrender our whole being unto God by entering into his presence and bringing our mind and body under subjection to Christ. Through quieting the mind, meditating on God’s Word, and abiding in His Presence, we consecrate ourselves unto God and away from the world, it’s distractions and worldly attachments and affections. Each time we enter into God’s Secret Place, we allow his transforming presence to change us inwardly where we discover the deeper things of God, a world within a world, that many never dig deep enough to find.
Meditation is the act of meditating; continued or extended thought; reflection; contemplation; or devout religious contemplation or spiritual introspection. Therefore, the practice of Christian meditation would be to engage in thought, contemplation, and reflection about our relationship with Christ and/or the Word of God.

After the meditation, spend a few more moments in silence. If time permits, get out your journal and ask God what is cause stress in your life. Ask God for help in managing your life better and even think about how you can cut back on some of your weekly activities to spend more time just being. For best results, meditate 1-2 times per day, preferably in morning and evening.

Could You Use a Little More Love and Inspiration Today?
One of the most inspiring videos I have ever listened to!
Every now and then, there are videos or messages that give me goose bumps and this is one of them. In this video, Jeff Olsen shares about his near death experience.

Start Meditating Now to Eliminate Stress
Some great options for those who want to reduce stress is to do a walking meditation. With a walking meditation you get the benefits of both exercise and meditation. A walking meditation is very simple. Pick an area you’d like to walk. A pretty place or around the block is ideal. Proceed by walking very slowly and as you do stay completely in the presence moment by focusing on tangible things around you, like flowers, trees, or the side walk. You can even meditate on a sacred phrase like “Christ is my peace” as you walk. The key is that every time your mind wanders off, bring it back to the present moment by returning your focus to the here and now. You will be surprised at how many times your mind is going to wander off like a dog on a long leash. Just like training a dog to heel, you’ll need to continue to yank your mind back into the present moment.
