Spiritual Tools: Transcendental Meditation

Stepping on the path of spirituality is daunting. It is often two steps forward and four steps back. Everyone's experience is unique and beautifully individual. No matter what the journey is, it will be in your higher power's time. However, it's the spiritual tools of recovery, which get us to our destination with less speed bumps.

It has been 10 years since I moved to Italy and completed the TM (Transcendental Meditation) course with Angela Lander’s in Glasgow, Scotland.

When you step on the path of transformation and spirituality. You may experience a life beyond your wildest dreams. Or you may be presented with challenging obstacles along the way. Nevertheless, it’s an incredible adventure. My wise gran reassures me that my future- self will want to do it all over again when I get to her age. That I should enjoy each and every minute of it. That the sweet is never as sweet without the sour.

However, the frequency and energy in which we emit will attract exactly that back into our lives. A low energy consists of feeling stressed, overwhelmed and ungrounded. A vital energy will create feelings of peace, harmony and clarity. This is called the spiritiual malady (sick), when we are off-balance. Unfortunately, there is no magic pill for increasing our energy and frequency. We must reach out for our spirtual tools. One which connects us to our higher self – meditation.

I did the Trasncendental Mediation course with Angela Lander’s in Glasgow, Scotland almost 10 years ago. After the sudden death of our father, I found the abbreavement phase extremely painful and difficult. My older sister recommeneded this course to me. And I haven’t looked back since. I am now using it to help me to connect to my inner- self more during the current epidemic of the Coronovirus in Italy. It is a tool which I can take wherever I go. No lockdowns or restrictions can stop me from finding peace within. No one or no- external thing can take that away from you.

When we begin our spiritual journey. We often expect immediate gratification and results. We become frustrated when we try to run the show, and things don’t go the way we want them to go. However, if we are commited and dedicated to our spiritual growth and recovery. Things will start to go more smoothly and we will be able to deal with situations which use to dazzle us.

Mediation is hard and dedicated work initially. But if you want a quick-fix for your soul. This is the tool to pick up. If we want to be joyous, happy and free.

Connecting to yourself daily through meditation is just as important as a daily shower. It will give you the clean and ordered mind to match your clean body.
