Meditation Quotes to help Quiet the Mind - Psychic Readings Guide

In this article, I’m going to share with you the best meditation quotes I’ve found dedicated to quieting a busy mind. Here goes…

Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati

“Quiet the mind and the soul will speak.”

This quote describes how the act of quieting the mind will help you to realize important revelations about how you truly feel and where your life is heading. It can give you that bird’s eye view that was previously missing from your vision.

Jon Kabat-Zinn

“It is indeed a radical act of love just to sit down and be quiet for a time by yourself”

Self-care is such a rare yet important act. It can often feel like we don’t have time to be peaceful, but you deserve to carve out time in your schedule to simply sit and enjoy some quiet time on your own, whether it’s to reflect, or simply be.

Sri Chinmoy

“I meditate so that my mind cannot complicate my life”

Our minds often like to overthink things or be a Negative Nancy. If you let yourself, you could talk yourself out of doing a great many things.

The trick is to let your mind find a place of quiet, so that you don’t have to second guess yourself, and you can just carry on regardless.

Victor Davich

“Meditation is allowing what is”

Beginner meditators sometimes tell themselves what not to think about, but true meditation is not about blocking your emotions, but becoming more aware of them, and allowing them the space to be.

Andy Puddicombe

“Remember the blue sky. It may at times be obscured by clouds, but it is always there.”

If you think of your mind like the blue sky beyond the clouds, where the clouds represent your thoughts and feelings, you can acknowledge that those clouds are there, but you are not defined by them, and they are simply passing through.


“Mediation means dissolving the invisible walls that unaware has built”

This quote is about how calming and quieting the mind can lead to precious insights and revelations. A few moments of meditation could inspire you to take a new direction with a project that hadn’t occurred to you before.

Bhagavad Gita 

“When meditation is mastered, the mind is unwavering like the flame of a candle in a windless place”

One way to meditate is to think of your mind as a candle flame. Your thoughts may attempt to blow the flame one way or another, but you can remain steadfast and unmoving, no matter what’s going on around.

Amit Ray

“Meditation is choosing not to engage in the drama of the mind, but elevating the mind to its highest potential.”

Thoughts and emotions can really pull you in sometimes, but your task as a mediator is to break free of the drama and find the peace and clarity and your thoughts and emotions try to pull you from.

Albert Einstein

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious; it is the source of all true art and science.”

This quote inspires us to be curious about clearing the mind through meditation, and seeing where the process could lead.

“Meditation is the ultimate mobile device; you can use it anywhere, anytime, unobtrusively.”

Bringing meditation to the modern day, we can compare meditation to a mobile phone, in that it’s something we can do anywhere at any time, simply by observing your breath for a moment or two.

James Allen

“The more tranquil a man becomes, the greater is his success, his influence, his power for good.”

Finding the time to meditate really reaps rewards. Once you learn to access a sense of calm at any point in your life, you will be able to achieve great things. You will radiate confidence, and that begets success.

“Be free like a balloon is. Let go of all the weights (negativity) to fly to the highest of skies”

We all know what it’s like to have negative thoughts drag us down, but with meditation we can find release from these thoughts and live free and easy, unburdened and free.

“The best mediation is effortless. The best meditation is a gentle awareness”

As you become more experienced and accomplished in meditation, it will start coming to you more easily. And the best meditation is a gentle awareness of how you feel deep down inside.

Ajahn Amaro

“If you have time to breathe, you have time to meditate. You breathe when you walk. You breathe when you stand. You breathe when you lie down.”

You don’t have to sit on a certain cushion to meditate – meditating by monitoring your breath is something that you can do anytime, anywhere, no matter how busy your day might be. 

Alan Watts

“Meditation is the discovery that the point of life is always arrived at in the immediate moment.”

When you meditate, you concentrate on the present moment. The past is behind you, the future is unseeable, and the present moment is truly a gift. You can use to settle your thoughts and lift your emotions

Naval Ravikant

“Meditation is intermittent fasting for the mind. Too much sugar leads to a heavy body, and too many distractions lead to a heavy mind. Time spent undistracted and alone, in self-examination, journaling, meditation, resolves the unresolved and takes us from mentally fat to fit.”

This is a superb analogy for understanding how you sometimes need to abstain from overthinking in order to think more clearly.
