Meditation has changed the game for me. It has been integrated in my routine since 2017. I was a restless, always-on-the-go type of person, it wasn´t easy for me to just sit down and BE.
Until I´ve literally FORCED MYSELF. Until I´ve realised it is my ego that wants me to be alert, in control all the time. Until I´ve consciously created a so called MEDITATION CORNER in my home.
It´s beautiful, peaceful, a clean space to sit, pray and contemplate...
"Meditation is always a different experience"
Forcing myself to just BE was more than necessary, it was back then when I started this creative journey, producing content, putting myself out there, showing up every single day...
Things started to go OUT OF CONTROL, there were so many new things and challenges I had to face all alone, there were confusing moments, it was easy to get lost and distracted.
My soul was craving for more CLARITY and slowing down.
I started to do yoga and every time I finished, I went to my meditation corner to sit calmly even though it felt strange, even though I had no idea how to meditate "properly".
Until I´ve realized there is no proper way, I FOUND MY OWN WAY TO "CONNECT".
CLARITY. CONFIDENCE. EASE.
Kind of my favourite words. We all ARE these words. But not always. Meditation gives us access to them, to feel them, to be them, to live through them.
When I meditate, I am not always able to get to a state where I am thoughtless or do not feel my nose and the space around me. Yes, I had those deep experiences too but I learned to not put any pressure on myself. I learned to just sit and BE with myself and any thought or emotion that comes to the surface. I let them come and go. That´s it.
On the other hand, I have to admit that I am also a huge fan of self -soothing, GUIDED MEDITATIONS, where I focus on a voice, on the high vibrating words, I feel elevated emotions and I am able to connect to my HIGHER SELF and FEEL MY OWN LOVE. Nothing is more beautiful than that. This is my favourite type of meditation, to connect with my ideal self and my desire on purpose.
Every day I envision the best version of me, my ideal and DESIRED STATE so I can begin/continue my day in the absolute utmost faith that all is working out for my highest good.
Meditation, IMAGINING OUR FUTURE SELF is the first step for LONG-LASTING CHANGE and transformation. It helps us focus our attention on the powerful now, so we can get out of old and familiar thought patterns. It helps us restructure our brain, be more conscious, be the observer of our thoughts and our lives.
Share your experiences in the comments with us. So curious how meditation works for each of us, how can be make it a fun, soothing experience so we want to come back to it more often. And remember: Meditation can be anything! For me it is dancing sometimes, walking my dogs, having sex, cooking a new meal and so on. :)
