As the goddess Coventina has encouraged us to indulge in purification, let us take that concept a little further to include our minds. Detoxifying and purifying the mind is the most beneficial thing that we can do to increase our own happiness. Of course, one of the first things to come to mind is meditation. And, there is good reason for that: Meditation works! No matter what belief system you adhere to, clearing out mind chatter will certainly bring peacefulness and calmness to your thoughts.
Meditating is not a difficult process. It can be a simple as finding a quiet place, sitting on the floor or in a chair with your feet flat on the floor, relax, and breathe. Focus on your breath. Thoughts will come in, they cannot help themselves. Thoughts move through our minds all day, every day. The trick here is to not try to force those thoughts out, but to acknowledge them and let them move on. Do not concentrate on any thought, good or bad. Let it go and bring your attention back to the breath.
Some find it easier to meditate with soft, relaxing music in the background. Others may find it much easier to listen to a guided meditation. Which ever way gets the job done for you, do it like that. Consistently dumping the junk out of your mind will give you clarity, increase your level of concentration, and your creativity.
Once you have everything cleared out, begin to fill your mind with positives. Look for good, uplifting statements or mantras. Choose those that you know will help you reach your goals. These can be goals for business, life, or spirituality. If you have never tried meditation before, you will be totally amazed at how this practice can make such a positive change in the way you feel physically and mentally.
