There are about 8 billion of people alive worldwide, and only half of 1 billion people are meditating, which they know how important it is to meditate every single day.
These people that know all about it and are actually practicing meditation are probably the happiest, most calmest people in the world!
You probably have no idea what happens when you meditate on a daily basis, and I’m going to show you…
To me, it is a life-changing power because when you meditate at least 15-30 minutes first thing in the morning per day, you’ll start to have access and have full control of your mindset and your emotions.
The more man meditates upon good thoughts, the better will be his world and the world at large. – Confucius
Meditation in the morning shuts down the chatter in your head. It basically shuts down for the rest of day as well, based on my experience and therefore, you have all the control of what you want to think.
Yes, it is super important to have complete control of your whole body because that is where the power is!
So in today’s post, I’m going to share with you the reasons and the benefits of why you need to meditate day in and day out!
Plus I’m willing to show you how I meditate the correct way, which is also important as well!
Let’s get going and find out everything here!
What is Meditation?
Meditation according to Wikipedia “is a practice where an individual uses a technique – such as mindfulness, or focusing the mind on a particular object, thought, or activity – to train attention and awareness, and achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm and stable state”.
Now if you don’t know meditation has been practiced in several religious cultures (buddha) and traditions for thousands and thousands of years.
Meditation means dissolving the invisible walls that unawareness has built. – Sadhguru
But I’m not going to get into details of its history because it’s too much information!
And even though it is a very popular practice technique, most people are just “aware” of knowing it or heard of it before but most don’t actually use it on their daily routine.
Meditation is the “path towards enlightenment and self-realization” for you to be aware of what’s going on inside and outside of you.
To me, awareness is a natural superpower that not a lot of people are using it, which if everyone uses their own power that every person has, the world would be awakened and there won’t be so many negative things going on around the world.
Therefore, being awakened means being aware of everything of what’s happening inside of you and around you!
Now people claim that there are at least about 6 types of meditation:
- Mindfulness Meditation – Most popular one: Concentrate on your breathing with awareness of your thoughts to let go of them.
- Spiritual Meditation – Intended to seek a deeper connection with your God or Universe
- Focused Meditation – Intended to focus on an idea/thought for several minutes while meditating
- Movement Meditation – Intended to meditate while in motion with eyes open
- Mantra Meditation – Intended to meditate while hearing a sound/mantra
- Transcendental Meditation – Intended to meditate while using words
But to me, it’s all the same thing! Either one, it uses the same form of technique by the breathing practice to inhale, hold for a few seconds, then exhale.
The only thing that really changes is what you focus on and the background’s sound, that’s basically it!
What Are the Benefits/Advantages of Meditation?
The #1 main advantage that we all get from meditation is to increase self-awareness of ourselves and our surroundings!
That’s a huge advantage because when you have full control to know what is going on in your mind and know how you’re feeling/emotion, that’s very powerful!
A lot of people in today’s date and age are living off their own “auto-pilot selfness robot” which means your mind and body are controlling you by whatever thought or feeling you have, either negative or positive and therefore, that is the opposite of how you should live your life.
I can’t stop saying how it is super important for you to have control of your mind and your body, and this is where meditation comes into play!
When you start meditating first thing in the morning on a daily basis, you’ll notice that you are NOT your thoughts or your feelings, but a higher-self behind all of that…
You’ll see that thoughts and emotions don’t define you, but your higher-self (true self) is who defines you.
It will allow you to have control of what you want to think of and you will also have control over how you’re feeling because everything is basically a CHOICE.
By meditation, the numerous benefits are such as;
- self-awareness of you and your surrounds
- opens our third-eye by activating the pineal gland
- helps you create a sense of relaxation/calm
- decreases stress, anxiety, and depression
- allows you to have full control of your thoughts
- helps lower blood pressure, reduce pain
- creates inner harmony within yourself
- gain more gratitude feelings in your day
- keep you stress-free all day and every day
- allows you to be more happy & joyful
- improves sleep especially meditating before bed
- makes you live longer / reduces aging
- helps release the body’s tension/resistances
- improves mentality and your mindset
- helps you feel more connected to yourself
- increases immunity & decreases diseases
- gain better mood, improve the brain
- increases creativity, memory, & clarity
- improvements with breathing flow – oxygen
- boosts metabolism & helps lose weight
- lessens muscle soreness and pain
- helps you have access to your intuition
- allows you to have more confidence/self-esteem
- helps fight addiction & break dependences
- elevates energy levels – reduces emotional explosions
- decreases tension-related problems: ulcers, headaches, & migraines
- allows you to appreciate life way more + many more benefits!
Now some of these have been scientifically proven and others are based on my own experiences! By the way, there are NO negative side effects at all, but only positivity.
As you can see, there are too many benefits/advantages and improvements that you’re missing out if you’re not meditating on a daily routine.
How to Meditate the Correct Way?
To practice meditation, it is very easy and simple!
So here’s the steps to meditate the correct way:
- Sit comfortably or lie down comfortable (best to sit down)
- Close your eyes and completely relax (loosen your shoulders)
- Have your hands opened with palms up to each side of your body (prefer on top of your knees)
- You will then simply breath naturally until your fully relax
- Now focus your attention on your breathing and on how your body moves with each inhalation and exhalation
- NOW start taking a deep breath by inhaling with your nose for 4 seconds total, hold your breath for 4 seconds, then exhale the breath out through your mouth to release air for 4 seconds. : 4-4-4
KEY: Remember to breathe in by filling up your stomach of fresh air, not your chest. Have your eyes closed at all times! Concentrate on the deep breaths and make sure to hold for 4 seconds as directed. Just remember to focus ONLY on your breathing. Don’t think or imagine anything, but just focus on your breathing which will basically “turn off” your mind.
Now you would keep doing that for at least 15-30 minutes per day. But the longer you meditate, the better it gets and the more/faster benefits you’ll gain!
I personally like to meditate 1-3x times a day. First thing in the morning, during lunchtime, and at night before bedtime. Yes, for 20-30 minutes only while listening to Binaural beats / vibrational frequency music!
I would meditate for a full hour if I could but I am always busy and I find that 20-30 minutes feels right for me. You could be different, maybe you need more time, find out yourself!
Another thing that I want to mention is that you can practice meditation anywhere, and at any time of your day because it will work in all ways.
That means you can meditate during work, in the morning, at night, or even at a party / noisy place, doesn’t matter!
Which, you can simply meditate standing up without having your eyes closed, but by doing the deep breathing technique, that’s what really matters.
Same goes for the background noise. You don’t have to be in a quiet place but I rather it in nature with the natural sunlight and fresh air because I can concentrate better on the breathing. Some people like having a meditation frequency music going on and I do which helps a lot, especially if it’s a healing frequency to a certain part of my body.
Yes, depending on the frequency sounds, it does help even better to clear out the negative energy within you. Sound is energy!
Why You MUST Meditate Every Single Day? – Results
Meditation is essential for renewing the oxygen of our bodies.
When you deeply inhale, you’re basically inhaling new fresh oxygen into your body, and when you exhale, you’re releasing all negative energy/resistance/tension out of the body.
It works like a champ!
Meditation means the recognition or the discovery of one’s own self. – Sri Chinmoy
By the way, I can’t forget to mention that mediation was the cure for the migraines that I had in the past, like I really mean, my head used to be pounding day in and day out, all the time.
Meditation will slow down the mind (that’s if your body is not on stimulants like caffeine, drug, etc) and as I mentioned above, you’ll send new oxygen to your brain and therefore, it starts to release the heavy headaches/migraines.
But other than the benefits/advantages and the improvements that we gain from meditation, the main reason why you must meditate every single day is because of this…
When you start meditating on a daily basis, like after 21 days or so, you will start to be in your present moment!
And this is super powerful because the past and the future doesn’t exist, it is just an illusion!
Which, meditation takes you off the past and the future, where you’ll start to connect to your point of power, connect to your own intuition, connect to your subconscious mind and you will basically connect to your own higher-self.
When you are present in the present moment like being aware of yourself and your surroundings, you’re in order with the universe frequency and that’s where you’ll recognize and get the information and the answers you need to manifest or create your dreams into reality.
So that is why you MUST meditate every single day because you’ll be in your present moment and you’ll gain access to everything that you need in order to keep moving forward in life and succeed in whatever you want, in all areas of your life!
Like our intuition, the only way you can have access to your intuitive signs is through being in the present moment, and not focused on your past or your future.
It is important to focus on the NOW, as what’s happening now in the present moment but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t focus on the future.
It just means that the NOW is where the power lies in because the future is the future. The past is just memories so none of that actually matters!
Focus on yourself, how your thinking and how you’re feeling, and focus ONLY on what you want but focus on how it would be to have all you want in the now time, present moment!

I’m glad that you’re here and hopefully, you will never miss a day without meditating because that is true power!
