Meditation as a Practice
Just as you would start a new exercise program or a healthy diet; it takes time to see the results. The same is true with your meditation practice, it requires commitment and dedication into integrating this into a daily routine.
By making meditation an integral part of your day, you will develop the ability to calmly and objectively observe situations and consciously choose how you want to respond. It empowers you to go beyond habitual, conditioned thinking.
As you meditate on a regular basis, you access the inner silence and stillness and that is where you find your happy, creative, balanced and vibrant life.
Why do you need a Meditation Instructor?
A common thing that happens, is when someone wants to meditate -they will sit for a few minutes and try and silence their thoughts - and then they quit. Saying to themselves, “Meditation is not for me” or “I can’t sit and not have thoughts”. As Deepak Chopra says “Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It is a way of entering into the quiet that’s already there, buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average person thinks everyday”.
You need a meditation teacher to mentor you because, as you establish your meditation practice, many shifting feelings and emotions will happen and usually the majority of new meditators develop a false belief of; “I’m not doing it right” or “I suck at meditating”. Those are exactly the things that will talk you out of meditation practice or will make you agree with the false believe that: “I am one of those people who can’t meditate”.
This is where I can help you.
