When i got out of meditation i felt very calm, a calmness i don't recall feeling ever before.
I am looking for someone just to talk to really also share their meditation experiences why and how it helps others.
Hi Connie and welcome to the community
Meditation won't feel quite the same to you as it will to me or anyone else because it's is an individual experience. Here's a link to some valuable principles that I think you will find of great interest:-
Principles of Meditation & Entrainment
A little daily meditation has made a huge difference to my day to day life. To be aware and live in the moment is so enjoyable. It is so freeing to not be ruled by the endless trail of thoughts I used to allow to take over my life. To be able to deal calmly and creatively with various challenges and situations is so much more productive than re-acting to situations as I used to do.
The calming influence you can bring to others is one of the things I am so greatful for too. I look forward to hearing how you progress and wish you an abundance of peace and joy
