It is easy to become overwhelmed by negativity these days. Natural disasters, global wars and a sinking economy not only envelop the news around the world, but also have a direct effect on our daily lives.
Family, friends, jobs, and home life are seriously afflicted with the bombardment of depressing, frustrating happenings every day. It’s all too easy to fall into the trap of actually attracting more negativity.

Just relax! It’s a well intentioned piece of advice; but not a very effective one if this just adds more pressure for a person to find inner-calmness. With the hustle and bustle of today’s world and technology moving at the speed of light, our minds are overrun with input from the moment we wake up to the moment we try to sleep.
The morning news, friends, family, coworkers, social media barrage us with opinions and trends, information and advice. And that’s not all! Background noise such as music and television can bring even more chaos for the mind to sort through. Regular practice of meditation brings about peace of mind, serenity, and allows the mind to be clear of chatter which then opens the door for intuition and psychic development.

Many of us were taught we shouldn’t show anger or that it was wrong to fight back. Instead we were told platitudes like ‘Two wrongs don’t make a right’ or ‘It is better to turn the other cheek’. Although there is some truth to these statements, this doesn’t help us on an energetic or physical level, as we squash down our emotions, smother those feelings and try to pretend we are unaffected by what is going on around us.
