Achieve Your Goals Using Meditation (A How To Guide) 💫 🙏

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:

    • A prayer.

    • 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.

How the “1 Minute Rule” Changed My Life 💃🙋 >VLOG<

Hey Gorgeous Queen! 

I think it’s safe to say that most of us would love to get more things done every day. But, unfortunately, we can’t increase the number of hours we have.

That means the only way to get more done in the same amount of time is to implement strategies that increase productivity.

I would like to introduce to you to the easiest productivity hack around. It’s called: The One Minute Rule.

I learned this rule from Gretchen Rubin, the author of The Happiness Project and Better than Before. Rubin says: 

“Anything you can do in less than a minute, do without delay.” says Rubin. “So, if you can print out a letter and file it. If you can look at a document and throw it away. If you can put your coat on a hook instead of on the back of a chair. Anything you can do in less than a minute, you just go ahead and do it.”

At first glance, this rule seems silly and like it wouldn’t make much of an impact but the truth is, it can create huge shifts in the amount of tasks you get done in a day.

I decided to do an experiment and implement this rule into my personal life for the last 4 days. 

Watch the 4 minute video below to hear my experience (it was amazing!)

Do you accept The 1 Minute Challenge? If you do, click reply and let me know!

After you complete one week shoot me a quick email: steph@raiseyourvibetoday.com and let me know how you feel. 

Can't wait to hear all about it Queen!

My #1 hack to feel confident around anyone, anyplace, anytime.

Hi Gorgeous, 

You know that feeling you get when you go to a networking event or when you are around a bunch of people you don't know?

Like you have to prepare a synopsis of all the amazing things you are doing in business and in life?

I used to feel like this all the time. 

Like I had to be so INTERESTING to be worthy. 

It was like I thought I had to EARN my place in the world. 

This put sooooo much pressure on me when I would go to networking events or just out in public in general. Especially when I had severe social anxiety. 

Now I understand that, in social situations, it is so much better to be INTERESTED rather than INTERESTING. 

Watch the video below or keep reading to understand what I mean. 

When you approach people with a smile and genuine heartfelt interest...in them, what they do, what they love, what their hopes wishes and dreams are...

It also allows the other person to let their light shine. This feels really good to both people. Win/Win!

This also releases the pressure of feeling the need to "perform" or "be on show" by telling everyone about yourself. 

This is the quickest way for you to build massive rapport with people too which is an amazing skill to have in business and in life. 

Finally, it is also important for me to point out that you were BORN WORTHY. You do not have to prove yourself to anyone. 

Simply being there, with the beautiful light and love you bring to the room, is enough to "earn" your place in the world. 

When you bring your full and best self, you are a gift and a prize to everyone you meet. 

Always remember that Goddess. 

Much Love, 

Steph
