This sets her intention for the day and she feels ready to face all challenges. Ariana Huffington tweeted the following which sums up her experience with meditation and why she meditates daily. “Meditation is a miracle drug.

Oprah Winfrey

Oprah the greatest talk show host on the planet has been interviewing people for decades and over the many years of hosting the Oprah Show, she had the privilege of talking to many people like Eckhart Tolle who has taught us that the still voice is the one to listen to. In the evening Oprah meditates for 20 minutes before she goes to bed and in the morning she listens to the sounds of the world awakening and then has 20 minutes of meditation to be still and listen to her inner silence before beginning her day.

Bill Gates

Bill Gates is the founder of Microsoft and he does not have a lot of time to do much else than be present in the foundations and businesses he chairs and runs. When he was in his 20s Bill believed that meditation was to do with reincarnation and was something that hippies and mystics did. Today because his calendar is so full he only manages to fit in meditating 3 times a week and he does this for 10 minutes. Bill Gates took a meditation class some years ago and learned that short meditation is powerful and can be more beneficial if practiced daily as opposed to longer sessions that are infrequent.
