    Divine Introspections: Meditation Journeys through Healing and Spirituality

    In a flood of Revolution and Migration, Meditation and other Eastern health practices have taken the Western World. Our vocabularies are growing by leaps and bounds as we learn words like Kundalini, Ayurveda, and Mindfulness. In most health scenarios and Spiritual Paths we hear repeatedly that we need to Meditate. Well, sure! Now how should we begin? Another familiar path is built leading us down tunnels and paths of Guided Meditation Videos, 8 Hour Water and White Noise Playlists, and people leading Meditations – showing us lots of good practice with very little personalization. Meditation ?should? be Personal. Every person is different, so with Meditation being focused within Introspection and…
