For most of my life I have been the A type personality. I have always been the multi-tasker, doing a million things at once. When I was first introduced to meditation, I was instantly repelled.
Meditation was so far outside my comfort zone. Who the heck had time to meditate? I was already so busy with life.
My mind was always racing. Thoughts would fly in and out 24/7. It would take me such a long time to fall asleep every night because my thoughts would compete with each other. And you know what? I enjoyed it – most of the time.
Two years ago I was re-introduced to meditation. I was at a low point in my life. I was fulfilled in many aspects of my life – but something was off. I knew I had to take action. I went to a therapist that practiced alternative methods over medications. One of her methods was meditation.
By this point in my life I have heard so many benefits about mindfulness, I decided to give it another shot. I changed my typical approach from going all in to a more staggered approach.
It took time to find the right guided meditation, music and environment, but it was worth it. Two year later, I love meditating. It is something I look forward to. It clears all the thoughts in my head and when I am finished I feel focused, calm and ready to take on the world.
Take it from me. If I can meditate, so can you! The hardest thing about mediation is waiting for it to get good.
It’s like licking a Tootsie Pop. You don’t know how many licks to takes to get to the gooey, delicious center. I will tell you, meditation (and that Tootsie Pop) is worth the wait.
Here are my favorite benefits that I have gotten out of meditation & other mindful practices:
– I am truly happy
– My anxiety is virtually elminated
– My mindset shifted to a whole new level of positivity
– I see the abundance around me
– I am present and able to enjoy the moment
– Things fall into place effortlessly
Please note: Meditation did not create all of these amazing benefits on it’s own. I have instilled other practices as well that have played a part in my life transformation. I’ll share my other methods with you in future communications.
For now, I would love to share with my favorite resource when I got started with meditation.
Oprah & Deepak Chopra free 21 day meditation experience – This mediation was a great way to understand the benefits and have a guided meditation for the first part of the audio. The second part is where you can start to quiet the mind and focus on your breath or a mantra.
I would love to hear from you about your journey with meditation!
