To most people I appear to be a fairly calm, centered person. I would have to agree…with one exception. It’s when I meditate. ~ Lynn Robinson
Meditation, Easier said than done
You hear meditation is the key to peace. I’ve even written about that. Let’s be real, how easy is it to calm your mind. If Lynn Robinson an intuition expert has trouble along with Wayne Dyer, how can you expect to be perfect.
It is true, when you take moments to center and be quiet, you open up channels of energy and creativity. It’s just getting there that’s the hard part.
Start Your Practice During This Holiday Season
Your schedule always seems to be hectic. During the holidays it’s out of control. Why is this the time to start a meditation practice?
The answer…a holiday season with meaning. Isn’t that what you’re striving for with all your preparations. Why not spend a few moments a day preparing yourself?
Where to Meditate
The other day I talked about my car meditation. It seems this year, that’s been the best place for me to get quiet and meditate. When I do, my gratitude and love meter instantly rises. As I walk into a client’s office, a holiday party or the next store for one of my endless errands, I feel centered. People seem to smile at me more. I have wonderful conversations with people. I notice more love around me.
I realize you may not have quiet car moments because you’re traveling with a bunch of kids or taking a conference call. Another place to find meditation time, according to Lynn Robinson in her book Listen is before you get out of bed in the morning.
Set the alarm fifteen to thirty minutes earlier, then sit up in bed, pile some pillows under and around you, and begin to meditate.
She also recommends to spend a little time after your morning meditation envisioning your day. How do you want it to flow? I do this on a regular basis. The mental rehearsal of envisioning your day, creates a path for you to follow. Each time I do this, my day runs more smoothly and things just seem to turn out the way I saw them.
Meditation Your Special Gift
Starting a meditation practice during the holidays may seem counter intuitive. It is however one of the best gifts you can give yourself for the year to come.
Meditation is part of my daily routine. I’m centered.
