BREAKING NEWS: The Surprising Way You Can Change the World with One Simple Action (Infographic)

Breaking News: The Surprising Way You Can Change the World with One Simple Action (Infographic) | Soultiply with Brittany Ritcher I’ve never traveled the world. In fact, I’ve never even ventured outside the United States. I know, it’s a little embarrassing to say out loud.

But thank God for the internet and all the technology that allows us to connect worldwide each and every day.

And it just makes me think…THERE IS SO MUCH OUT THERE IN THIS WORLD.

Millions of people are living out their moments in time every day. By that fact alone, we are all so incredibly connected.

What series of events had to happen for you to find yourself reading this post, on this website? Every choice you made today has led to this very moment. Take a deep breathe and soak it in. This is your incredible life to live.

Now that’s what I call a WHOA moment.

And boy oh boy, do I live for those moments!

Whoa moments can be best described as those periods in time where your mind can briefly comprehend our place in the grand universe. Those moments of awe while overlooking the Grand Canyon. I’ll never forget the time when I was reading and for a brief smidgen of a moment, I was able to wrap my mind around the fact that time is relative and all that exists is the present moment. No, I wasn’t high on drugs. I was running on a treadmill, to be exact. But I’ll never forget that WHOA moment for as long as I live.

Wait But Why just published a brilliant article about “whoa moments” and how they connect us to our highest selves. I strive to be in a state of awe, each and every day. It’s all just too beautiful to fully comprehend.

But WHOA moments are only little blips in time. And once they pass, the reality of our world becomes glaringly apparent.

For example, I’m not a fan of the nightly news. In fact, it’s probably the most depressing thing you could watch on television. I make an effort to stay informed on current events, but I don’t let them consume me. I choose to send a prayer out to those in need, and focus on deflecting that negative energy instead.

I know why news outlets exist. They aim to inform, but ratings always seem to win in the end. An anchor makes a hurtful sexist or racist remark, and the video goes viral. Their audience craves staggering numbers and incredible circumstances.

But what if we all chose to focus on this instead?…

The Best Meditation Techniques for Absolute Beginners

The Best Meditation Techniques for Absolute Beginners | Soultiply with Brittany Ritcher During high school, I craved Thursday mornings. While most kids were pressing the snooze button on their alarm clocks, I was alert and at school long before the first bell would ring. A few friends of mine started a Yoga Club and were desperate for new members – so I decided to give it a try. They recruited a lovely local yoga teacher to donate her time for our weekly sessions, and we all would pile into the stinky high school wrestling room for class. The lights were dim, the music was soft, and all the stress of college applications and high school drama seemed to just melt away.

But what I remember the most was the incredible meditation time at the end of each session. I was raised in a southern Catholic household and didn’t have an inkling about meditation or anything truly spiritual. I was entirely disconnected from my body and my own sense of self, so this yoga and meditation sequence was truly transcendental. I felt like I came alive during those morning sessions and I would carry those peaceful feelings with me throughout the rest of the day.

Fast forward 8 years and I still very much consider myself a beginner when it comes to meditation.

I’ll meditate for 15-20 minutes once a week or so, but most of the time I find my mind start to wander and I begin thinking about how old the avocados are in my fridge, or how cute that YouTube video was with that baby and puppy.

The fast pace of New York City seems to leave my nerves frazzled and my head spinning; I need meditation now more than ever!

So I thought it would be a neat experiment to try some different types of meditation and share my findings. Whether you are brand new to meditation, or you want to spice up your beginner routine, here are my honest opinions about some basic meditation techniques.

Each technique will be rated in 4 different categories: Feel Good Factor (how much of an impact it had on my mood and general wellbeing), Time , Lasting Results (how long I was able to maintain a heightened sense of inner-peace after the meditation), and Overall Score . Each category will be rated on a scale of 0-10.

Meditation allows us to connect to our source, diffuse our stress and revive our souls. Although meditation can clear our minds, it even more importantly allows us to access our true inspiration.

So don’t fret – check out the guide below to see what type of meditation practice might be right for you.
