Well, meditation can be different depending on the individual. However, most meditative goals are focused on relaxation, focus and clarity. Oftentimes, though, meditation can be used as a tool for self exploration and insight.
This meditation will focus on forgiveness and personal power. personal power is rooted in establishing self confidence and personal strength, not power over others. By offering self forgiveness, we can often open doors to step further into our own personal power.
