Happy Tuesday Beauty!
Meditation is something I think most people have heard of and have maybe even tried once or twice… but then quickly gave up.
Here the thing, I totally get it. It took me YEARS to understand how powerful meditation is for my life and achieving my goals.
(It is so powerful in fact, I do intuitively guided meditations for my clients live in every session tailored to their particular wants and needs. I also give them MP3 audio meditations to listen to in between sessions too.)
The reason it took me so long to realize this is because it seemed soooooo hard. Like completely impossible for me to do.
Back then, every time I would try to meditate, within 5 minutes I’d start thinking...
“What is the point of this? My mind keeps racing! Clearing my mind is impossible. This works for other people but it just doesn’t work for me.”
Man, was I wrong!
I now realize that back then I expected to be able to go from never meditating in my life to meditating like the Dalai Lama in 2.2 seconds. It simply doesn't work that way.
Meditation is called a practice because it takes practice. You’d never sit at a piano and expect to play like Mozart if you’d never taken a lesson in your life right?
Then why do we do this with meditation?
Keep reading below to learn the truth about meditating and also how to start implementing a practice into your life. It's time to start achieving your goals, Queen!
The Truth About Meditating
The neurology in your brain is very much like a muscle. The more and more and more you pump it the bigger, thicker, and stronger it becomes.
When you meditate you are pumping your neurology just like you would your biceps in the gym. Every single time you do a “repetition” you strengthen your ability to quiet the mind, focus on your goals, reduce your stress, and increase your motivation.
The most important thing to remember when you want to use meditation to reach your goals is the muscle analogy. You can’t do crunches once and expect a 6 pack right?
Same with meditation.
You can’t expect to do it once, then reach all of your goals, and become a powerful manifestor. The more and more and more you do it the more powerful it becomes and the easier it is to achieve your goals.
How to Start Meditating
You wouldn't go from never running a day in your life on a Monday to running a marathon on a Tuesday right? Instead, you’d create a training plan and incrementally increase your mileage as your body began to get stronger and stronger.
This is exactly the same way you should start implementing a meditation practice. Bit by bit.
Below I have created a “How To” Guide to help you easily start a meditation practice in your life.
Your Meditation Guide
Sit in a comfortable position, either on the floor in a chair.
If it is comfortable for you, place your hands on your lap with your palms facing up (this is a receptive position telling the universe you are ready to receive.) If this isn’t comfortable, place them wherever feels best for you.
Set an intention for your practice, this can be:
Asking to receive clarity around action steps.
Intending to create calm and peace in your heart and life.
Allowing the day to flow with ease and grace.
Close your eyes begin to focus on your breath, in through your nose, and out through your mouth. (allowing yourself to feel more and more relaxed with each and every breath.
When your mind wanders (and it will!) gently guide your attention back to the present moment and onto your breath. (You may have to do this many, many, many times but that is okay. Remember you are still in training. Clearing the mind only gets easier with practice.)
Do this practice for 6 to 7 minutes every day. (Everyone has 6 or 7 minutes right?)
After 2 Weeks, Introduce Your Goals
After about two weeks, extend your meditation time to 15 minutes and start to include a 5 minute period where you visualize your goals as if they have already happened.
Picture what you are doing, saying, wearing. Where are you? What action steps did you take to get there? Most importantly, how do you FEEL?
After another two weeks, you can try 30 minutes with 10 to 15 minutes spent on visualization.
If you miss a day, no need to beat yourself up. Just simply resume your practice the following day.
Through this meditation practice, you will develop the ability to stay motivated and locked on to your goals like you never have before.
Law of Attraction
Having a daily meditation practice focused on achieving your goals is also one of the best ways to become a vibrational match to that which you are wanting to appear in your physical reality.
