We created a list of meditation tools with the intention of helping beginners develop their practice and benefit more from the practice of their meditation sessions.
Meditation strengthens the communication channels between your mind, body, and spirit. It is the act of traveling inside yourself to your inner temple or your sacred space for a purpose, such as: gaining clarity on a situation, creating balance or stillness, or fostering a deeper connection with one’s self.
All you ever really need to meditate is just you, your breath, and your intention.
Let’s face it, sometimes it can be really hard to sit still, keep your eyes closed, focus in the present moment, and not be distracted by thoughts. It can useful to bring tools into your meditation session to assist overcoming these common obstacles.

The more energy work you put in – which is your time and experience – the more you will benefit!
