Happy June people!
Where on earth has the first half of the year gone?
For the month of May my mini challenge was to meditate every day – I did a 10 minute meditation in the morning before getting up, followed by a 30 minute meditation in the evening before bed.
Did this practice change my life? I would have to say yes, yes it did!
The morning meditation included the affirmation “Today is going to be a good day…Today is a good day.” When I wasn’t feeling on top of my game I would come back to this mantra and say it to myself. It made such a difference. Sometimes when you say an affirmation or a mantra to yourself you can feel a bit goofy, but the more you say it the more you feel it, and it really does happen. Now this is not to say that shite didn’t happen, because shite did and does happen. However there was a part of the mediation that talks about if you are faced with challenge throughout the day that you will be able to handle it, and sure enough, any challenges that did come my way I was able to handle.
The evening meditation was about letting go of the past and clearing the charkas. In the evening I would most of the time fall asleep during this meditation, however I believe subconsciously the meditation still has an effect.
I also attended a meditation class during the month which I absolutely love. To be in another environment with like minded people where you have permission to do nothing else but meditate. There is nothing to do, no where to be, but to just be present in the moment. I’ve been attending these meditation sessions with Lulu for 2.5 years now, and always look forward to going. I have popped Lulu’s details down the bottom if you are interested in joining a meditation class.
There are so many meditation apps out there now, and some great meditations on YouTube. You just have to find what suits you and what you are looking for. There have been times in the past where I have felt to wired and to frantic to meditate, but these are the times that you need it the most. To stop. To concentrate on your breathing. You would be surprised at how much more productive you can be when you take 10 minutes out to meditate. It can set you back on your tracks where you can think clearer and get more done.
