Toni's thoughts:

Meditation has become an essential part of my daily routine. It's something I've been doing for about three months now, and I have already noticed significant changes in my overall wellbeing. My brother, a seasoned meditator, introduced me to this practice, and I am so grateful for his guidance. His philosophy is simple - anyone can try it, even from the comfort of their own home.

He teaches concentration meditation, which involves focusing your attention on the sensations of your breath and trying to remain indifferent to thoughts, boredom, frustration, agitation, or dullness. When I first started, I didn't realise how challenging it was to concentrate on one thing at once. But as I continued to practice, I began to see the benefits.

Meditation has allowed me to become more observant of my thoughts and to understand that I am not my thoughts. It has helped me to detach from my emotions and to view them with a sense of clarity and objectivity. This has had a profound impact on my overall mental wellbeing.

Recently, my brother introduced me to candle meditation, which involves using the flicker of the flame to focus your attention. It's an incredible experience and something I'm excited to build upon. The simple act of lighting a candle and observing the flickering flame has a calming effect on the mind and helps to create a relaxing atmosphere. This practice has allowed me to deepen my focus and has enhanced my overall meditation experience.

If you're new to meditation, I highly recommend starting with concentration meditation. It's a simple but effective technique that can help to improve your overall mental wellbeing. Once you feel comfortable with this practice, you can explore other meditation techniques like candle meditation to enhance your experience even further.
