Awakening the Healer Within
What is Meditation?
Meditation is used to both relax the physical body and to enhance and accelerate spiritual growth and enlightenment. People who practice meditation on a regular basis look and feel younger, more alert, more creative, and better able to handle the stresses of the day.
Meditation that relieves stress will show up on your face as it helps give that peaceful look that can take 5 to 15 years off your actual age.
Meditation is also invaluable as a tool for self-healing. Giving your body as little as 5-10 minutes of quiet or shall we say “down time” a day can help boost the immune system and keep your body healthy.

Everyone can use some form of improvement in their lives and in one form or another, meditation techniques are the shortest path to self-improvement, particularly through the mind-power meditation techniques.
The importance this chapter and the chapter on Affirmations is that when both affirmation and meditation techniques are understood – and practiced – you possess the basic tools of self-empowerment.
When affirmations and meditation techniques are used in concert, you have the ability to change virtually any condition in your life, in other words, you can attain mastery of life.
Many people regard this combination as being the power to manifest, whether it is as simple as getting (programming) a parking space at the shops, or as profound as projecting your entire future.
