FINDING A DEEPER AND LOVING CONNECTION THOUGH YOUR MEDITATION PRACTICE
"I believe meditation is the driving force that connects this all together."
I believe when we practice meditation regularly, we gain access to experience the many gifts this wonderful tool has to offer.
The mind is constantly filtering the input of the outer world and the many feelings and emotions that we are experiencing daily.
My daily rituals of meditation, yoga, journaling, breath work and connecting with nature allows me to create space for more dedicated silence and reflection.
Staying grounded and connecting mindfully towards myself and my daily tasks plays a huge roll on how I show up in my business, in my relationships and in life.
I believe meditation is the driving force that connects this all together.
Meditation is one of the greatest gifts I received back when I was nine years old. My amazing Mum took both my sister and I to learn Transcendental meditation all those years ago.
For five years now this daily practice has become a crucial part of my every-day life. I have found myself having a deeper and loving connection to this practice and it has seen me through some massive life changes.
I believe it is important that mediation is something you feel drawn to do - rather than it being a chore. I often experience people feeling discouraged by meditation. It is not all about sitting crossed legged on a cushion. There is no right or wrong way.
To find a mediation practice that truly resonates with you and draws you in so you are pulled to it daily will help you to slow everything down and connect back to your light. Even if this means closing your eyes down, placing your hands on your heart and breathing a few deep breaths. It all works.
I truly believe that there is a meditation practice for everyone. I hope to see meditation taught in every school for our amazing little light beams growing up. It is exciting to see it starting to happen slowly.
From the 1970’s there have been thousands of studies done on meditation. Some studies have shown that meditating even 20 minutes per day for a few weeks is enough to start experiencing the benefits.
Ten of the many benefits of meditation are:
Heart, mind and body connection.
Reduced stress and anxiety
Greater sense of clarity and productivity
Lower blood pressure
Greater sense of calmness throughout the day
Lower risk of heart attack or stroke
Improved brain function and memory
Rejuvenates the cells
We have access to some of the most experienced teachers and knowledgeable sources around the globe these days that are available to all of us.
Here I share some of my favourite technique, teachers and guided mediations:
Transcendental Meditation (TM)
Transcendental Meditation is practiced for 20 minutes twice a day. The deep relaxation and expanded awareness gained during TM means that afterwards, the mind is less on edge, with less worries and anxieties. Sleep is better, emotions more balanced, relationships improve and we are able to accomplish more with less effort.
Four of my favourite guided meditations:
Free + Native - Lacy Phillips offerings are so magical and powerful. Her offerings on Free + Native will shift mountains and will guide you to really move into your inner work and most authentic self.
Dr Joe Dispenza - Recently my dearest soul sister introduced me to Joe’s work and it has blown my mind. His meditation “Changing your beliefs and Perceptions” is the one to look out for.
Sian Pascale from The Light Collective - In love with her “Yoga Nidra” guided meditation. Sian is an actual light beam. She is so nourishing and delivers this practice with such warmth and grace. Yoga Nidra offers a space to explore what you need in the moment, as well as an opportunity to work on releasing long-held emotions.
Love to all,
