Meditation is an art of training your mind for the conscious thinking pattern, it gives you the remote control of your brain to be run at your own pace. If your mind is in control, you can control everything you wish to.
Concurring the mind also reveals the fact that anything can be achieved whatever your mind can conceive – By NAPOLEON HILL, this taps the power of the subconscious mind and the law of attraction in our life.
Firstly, Let all us connect this point with the help of my example which is completely real and I was also shocked when I got to know so many unknown facts about our human mind.
I was once assigned with the writing of eight blogs of 1500+ words each, and for completing the task I had been provided with 10 days.
On a ninth day, I realized the deadline for submitting the blogs, filled with worry and anxiety I abruptly decided to take a twenty minutes tour of meditation during the situation
Above all I felt different strong energy being flowed in my body, I started writing the articles after preparing their structures,
I finished writing my article on the tenth day, which once seems to be impossible but I did it!
