Although meditation has been practiced for decades and this in most religions such as Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity Taoism etc ... It is by no means limited to being part of any religious beliefs ! It is a widely used exercise open to all believers or not which consists in developing better control over our mind in order to promote better harmony of body and mind.
"Meditation is the major art of the human being"
There are different ways you can meditate. For example, some meditations require breathing methods, while others require deeper relaxation or mantra quotes. So it's up to you to find the one that suits you best.

What's meditation anyway?
Meditation is a mental training exercise which consists in controlling one's thinking, in order to improve mental and physical health as well as to achieve total acceptance of the events that arise in our life.
“I like to compare meditation to daily hygiene, we take a shower to cleanse our body, we play sports to strengthen and tone it, and we meditate to offer the mind the same care.”
When and where meditate ?
In the bedroom or in the office, in the dining room, in the living room, or even in the garden... It doesn't matter as long as you can isolate yourself for a moment and stay in peace during your practice!
Start with small sessions of 10 minutes a day, and increase the time for your meditations when you feel the need. But above all, do not forget that meditating is not a question of duration but of frequency!
“Let's take care of our body and our mind.”
How to do ?
The first few times, meditating is not easy. We are quickly disturbed by small noises, itching here and there, the thoughts that we are trying to drive out or the positions to maintain without moving ! But the more you meditate, the more you will ignore all these little things and manage to keep a focused mind.
Choose a comfortable position, either sitted or lie down and start by relaxing your shoulders, arms, legs and become aware of your breathing which calms and slows down.
If you prefer to sit on a chair, make sure to keep your feet flat on the ground to promote a good connection with Gaïa, and if you prefer to sit cross-legged, put your pelvis a little forward on the cushion so as to always keep the spine straight.
For the sitting position let your arms rest on your thighs, palms flat or turn to the sky. And if you prefer to lie down, you can put your hands gently on your stomach.
To the sound of music, start by scanning your body zone after zone, as if a bubble of light came to surround you.
Creating a certain "atmosphere" will make a big difference during your meditations. You can help yourself with candles, incense, cushions, precious stones, music as well as favor a dim light.

Meditation has many good things that bring about extraordinary changes in our body and our mind. According to numerous scientific studies, there is a great development of mental capacities in terms of concentration as well as differences in behavior. Meditators claim to feel softer, calmer, more sociable and more empathetic.
Meditating brings tranquility, patience, balance and promotes personal development. This helps to create a strong connection with your higher self which allows to better understand our body, its needs and its feelings.
When you take the time to meditate, you feel the first benefits after 2 to 3 weeks. A deeper transformation is noticed after a few months of practice.
For example, a decrease in stress levels is found up to 40% lower than those who do not meditate.
As well as slowing the aging of the brain, the fight against addictions, as well as the development of concentration.
