THE BENEFITS OF READING
Why should we read ? After all there’s television, radio, cinema and a plethora of other interesting things we can interact with. We've researched this matter, as we at Crystal Spirits believe in the benefit of reading - especially the self help and metaphysical information that is channeled, researched, and written about between the covers of the books we stock. We hope that you will feel the same , especially after reading this information we put before you.
In terms of non-fiction there are endless stories and information that can help you through a sticking point in your life.. Those that read have been known to have more finely-tuned brains than those who prefer more passive activities. So those wanting to improve their minds both psychologically and cognitively might want to think about taking up the habit of reading.
First of all, reading develops your verbal abilities, improving your communication skills by increasing the range of words that you can express yourself by. You, therefore, are able to get your point across. Never mind increasing your knowledge on various matters, so that you have more information at hand. Reading, therefore, gives you a higher level of vocabulary to use in every day life.
It improves your focus and concentration levels - how? Well news articles and blogs are short and to the point, whereas a book takes long periods of focus and concentration, which at first is hard to do. Being fully engaged in reading involves closing off the outside world, and immersing yourself in text, which overtime will strengthen your attention span.
Reading improves your imagination . You are only limited by what you can imagine, so reading about other’s experiences and knowledge will help you expand your understanding of what is possible. Metaphysically, this is important especially for those who want to manifest, to spiritually grow and understand themselves and the world around them. Reading a written word describing a place or event, you mind becomes responsible for creating that image in your head, instead of having someone else's interpretation placed in front of you by the television.
It will make you smarter. Books offer a wealth of learning, and are much cheaper than a course. Reading gives you a chance to consume huge amounts of research in a relatively short space of time. Heavy readers display a greater knowledge of how things work, who and what people were. Books are strongly linked to academic achievement.
It will make you interesting and attractive, as reading makes you smarter. Having a library of non-fiction information will come in handy in academic and scholarly conversation. You will be able to hold your own - and you will have the added knowledge of self improvement, psychology and understanding the vibrations of people and situations. You will be to connect from a higher level of understanding other than the simple mundane world.
As strange as it might seem, reading reduces stress. In a study done at a university in Sussex, students only had to read silently for 6 minutes to slow down the heart rate, and ease tension in the muscles. It improves your memory as well. When you read you have time to think - reading gives you a unique pause button for comprehension and insight. When you listen to oral language you don't , or can’t press the pause button!
You should always read slowly and with love, your inner ear cocked and an openness to receive information. Reading increases our wit, imagination and our sense of intimacy - in short - our consciousness. We can heal pain through reading, we can understand situations, we can analyse, learn and grow. We can become ourselves. With endless amounts of perspectives and lives before us, books gives us the opportunities to experience things we might never be able to do. They allow us to learn skills, and is a fast track way of developing yourself.
Of all the benefits mentioned the most important benefit is entertainment value, and knowledge. Reading is fun, it keeps us amused while developing life skills. Don't miss out on this adventure and this fast track to spiritual growth.
