I am over the moon to receive so many emails from you all regarding the recent “How To Meditate” videos on YouTube followed by the opportunity to join the 5-Day Meditation Challenge.
I received this email from Ellis and he’s said I can share it with you as he says something that so many people think “Why bother…………………..
“I was always wary of meditation: it seemed like one of those things that were supposed to be a “cure-all” for your problems but only reserved for the select few that seemed to master it. I mean, why bother doing something that no one seemed to be doing and still living happy and healthy lives?
As I learned in my meditation sessions, I could free myself from worry — not from “getting rid” of the thoughts in some way but by identifying the thoughts that I had and then focusing back on the present moment.
I learnt simply how to breathe and then identify any stress as “feeling” and focus back on the present moment with my breathing.
Simply put, meditation has changed my life . It helped me connect with myself and realise what I really want out of life and that life is short and there’s no time like the present to chase your dreams. It reminded me to slow down and breathe. And it reminded me that taking stock of my life as it is now is the best way to take massive action on my dreams moving forward.
Meditation has also helped me transform my draft business plan into a full detailed business plan as I have become clearer with my vision. I now understand that when you constantly meet your daily goals, you transform your life for the better.
So thank you Heather for showing me how!”
The good thing is that you can’t fail at meditation and anyone can do it. You don’t need to do it well, but like any other thing, it’s a skill that you build over time. You don’t have to read well to read a book, but if you go for the hardest one on the shelf when you’re starting out it’s going to be more challenging!
The problem is that many people want to see immediate benefits when doing something. How many of us have set an intention to go to the gym but quit after weeks of not seeing results, or start to write a book and quit after feeling frustrated?
The key is to focus on the process of meditation itself, then eventually the benefits will follow….
Already know how to meditate? Yes, then join the challenge….
