Establish a meditation practice, it will change your life
Just to mention this: I had a hard time myself to get my practice going; I found it extremely difficult to sit down and just watch my breathing. But I was desperate, so I just kept sitting down until my mind stopped chattering and there was peace for 10 minutes. It has changed my life, gave me more peace, kindness and awareness. Meditation is one of the best things you can do to help get into the creative zone. It will reduce stress, improve your overall health and well being and improve communication.
Yes and it’s free, all you need is a quiet place, to close your eyes, focus on your breathing and that’s it.
What does it do?
Meditation is taking you to a space of non-doing. Just allowing and nonresistance will give you a chance to feel your own energy field, to stop the stream of thoughts and to just do nothing. The moment of not thinking will give you time to recover from constant “thinking strain” and resistance. Meditation is also a great tool to get you unstuck.
When you don’t have resistance, you can attract the good things into your life, because there is nothing to repel them. (Thinking can be a very strong energy and as long as we are involved in it, we might not be able to let in intuition.)
Magical, yes it is and simple, but sometimes we don’t want to do the simple and obvious things because we get too intellectual about it and our mind takes us out.
Have you heard yourself say?
- It’s too easy, this cannot work,
- How can sitting somewhere with my eyes closed make my life better
- This is stupid
- I don’t have time.
- I cannot do it
- It’s too hard
Now the good news is: you do not have to listen to this voice and you do not have to sit and meditate for hours, or even ½ an hour. If you start with 3 minutes a day, this will be a good start. Probably it will feel so good, to take some time out that you will want to make it longer. But this is up to you.
So try it out have fun, get a guided meditation CD if you like and start changing your life! I would suggest to do a meditation before you make a vision board, or any other creative activity, it will help you to get into your right brain, the creative part of your brain. Don’t waste any more time: empower your life, create your life and start now. Below a 3 minute meditation for busy people.
