“We meditate to get good at life, not to get good at meditation.” – Emily Fletcher
There are two types of meditation:
- Meditation designed for monks,
- Meditation for the modern world.
Many people get stuck because they chose meditation designed for monks. Yes, these practices worked in rural Asia centuries ago because you did not have to worry about your kids, your career, that looming project that’s due — or juggling all of the modern world’s many responsibilities.
Modern meditation on the other hand is a self-care practice so innocent, so playful, and so enjoyable that’s designed to get rid of the old stress stored in your body so you can perform better at life.
Meditation is something I have done for years – off and on that is. I notice when I do meditate regularly that life becomes more manageable and less disempowering to me.
However, my challenge has always been consistency.
Without consistency, meditation results will be inconsistent.
You see, the body is a transmitter and receiver. We are bioenergetic beings meaning we are living energy. Every experience we have affects our energy for better or worse.
Let’s face it. Human beings are unpredictable, fearful, and negative at times.
If you work in a high stress, low vibrational environment for example, the stress and low vibes are being absorbed into your body.
This is where meditation comes in handy.
While meditating you become more aware of your energetic field. You begin to notice where you are holding tension in your body and your thoughts. You can also examine your beliefs, especially fearful ones and hold them up to the light of your consciousness and then decide if it is indeed true.
Top athletes, business executives, actors and even busy parents have turned to meditation as a tool to help them become more focused in the present moment, to stay positive and maintain emotional health.
Meditation is also a great tool for creating a new you.
Let’s say you want to become less emotionally reactive to situations. What you want to do is recall a time when you reacted negatively to an event. Remember how it felt; remember how much pain it caused you by giving your power away.
What you want to do now is implant a new behavior pattern in yourself.
While meditating, envision a new you that doesn’t feel the need to react negatively in situations that you feel powerless in.
Teach yourself to become more focused in the moment and to deal with situations and events from a place of wisdom and kindness instead of fear and worry.
Trust me; you will love the feeling of no longer reacting to situations negatively.
